@Iamgoodtone #HomagebarstotheR challenge

Even in the darkest times hip hop has a way of shining through and keeping people connected. This sentiment is evident in the latest corona virus challenge. The #HomagebarstotheR challenge is set to sweep the internet. The challenge, created by Chicago artist Antonio Jones aka Good Tone pays homage to Eric B and Rakim’s Paid in Full. The homage is intended to show respect and give respect to the God Emcee. It is evident to most hip hop heads of all generations that Rakim is a most revered hip hop legend. Rakim’s flow would be the catalyst that changed the scope of how lyrics were approached in the rap game. His style finesse and vocal tones are the blueprint for hip hop’s golden age.

Jay Electronica: 40 days and 40 nights. A written testimony

Hip hop fans (from the early 2000’s) have been waiting for half of a score for what was once considered a highly anticipated album. Jay Electronic has at times been regarded as an emcee’s emcee. He has maintained this cult like status for the better part of two decades even having never dropped a full album. Well, the wait is over folks, the time has come, we are FINALLY going to get a full body of work. Electronica hinted on his instagram that after 40 days and 40 nights in the studio concentrating, he would then in 40 days release his debut. After such a long and drawn out wait, one wonders if the material will live up to the hype. It is also a wonder if the attention deficit within the hiphop community warrants any hype at all. After all of the near misses that surrounded pr...

Nicki Minaj’s Husband arrested for Failing to register as sex offender.

Nicki Minaj is once again standing by her man as he prepares to explain why he hasn’t registered as a sex offender. Nicki Minaj hasn’t had the greatest experiences lately when it comes down to the men in her life. Her brother Jelani Miraj was sentenced in January to 25 years to life for repeatedly raping an 11 year old girl. It Seems now that her husband Kenneth Petty is back in the can after being arrested by the feds for allegedly failing to register as a sex offender. He has been required to register as a result of a case in 1994 when the then 15 year old Petty was accused of forcing a girl back to his house for forced sex. Nicki minaj has stood by her husband claiming that at the time of the incident, Petty and the victim were in a teenage relationship. Petty was arrested e...

Kobe:A fan tribute.

There are a few poignant moments that resonate with my soul in this lifetime. The first would be watching the space shuttle challenger explode in the school auditorium in 1986 . The second would be the death of my grandmother later that year in Dec. Following on there would be the birth of my son in 1992 and the subsequent birth of my daughter in 1995. These are all personal moments. Moments that involved family, moments that made me take a step back to reevaluate my life. There have been two incidents in the last ten months that have also touched my soul. Moments that have made me feel like members of my family were detached from my energy source. Moments that feel like “a glitch in the matrix”. those moments include the death of the late great Nipsey Hussle and now the death of Kobe Brya...

The Funeral: Lil Wayne 1/31/2020

Forgive me for saying, but haven’t we witnessed this already? I mean seriously. We waited for half a decade for the Carter V. Much anticipated would be a better way to describe a Popeyes Chicken sandwich. Is this album truly highly anticipated? ‘Don’t get me wrong, Lil Wayne’s has commandeered a few of my favorite tunes. The long-standing feud between Lil Wayne and his adoptive father played out through the media. All things happening without as much as a drop of music in a digital age. This age where artists remain hot for a millisecond as the consumers continue to consume. The Carter V left even the most dedicated Lil Wayne fans felling a bit underwhelmed. Let’s hope this album will be a return to the hip hop heavens holy sanctum.

I Love you so much right now: Neptunes

The early 2000’s is Synonomous with Virginia Beach. Viginia beach is mostly kown for 4 things. Black post teens partying for spring break, Missy Elliot and Timbaland, The Clipse, and The Neptunes. Pharrell Williams by now is a household name. His 2013 single HAPPY was a breakout hit that accompanied the animated film Despicable me. Being the face of The Neptunes has created an image that Pharell himself was the brains behind some of the greatest “Pharrell” hits. These accomplishments however have actually been the work of two of the most dynamic co producers in the industry, THE NEPTUNES. The duo consists of Parrell Williams and the musical genius of Chad Hugo. Their early work introduced Kelis. Her smash hit CAUGHT OUT THERE (I HATE YOU SO MUCH RIGHT NOW) was released in...

Iron Man turns 23 and get’s kicked out of the house: Ghost face

Ghost Face Killa is arguably the best storyteller in the entire Wu tang Clan. Today in 1996 The W released Iron man a highly anticipated album. It is a Gold certified album. The album featured the other half of the Wu’s dynamic duo, Raekwon the Chef. Iron Man is a classic amongst true hip hop heads until this day. This album, laced with the production of the shoaling Island’s very own abbot, The Rza stinks of classic Wu-Tang. The 90s are not the 90’s without the muthafuckin ruckus that the Wu tang clan brought. Ghost Face, aka Tony Starks, aka Iron man let that be known throughout the album. The album is peppered with Ghost self certifying the group as the greatest hip hop conglomerate ever. History may actually prove his bolstering correct. The recent release of the Wu t...

A voice From the grave. Mac Miller

As the sun set on September 7th 2018 so dimmed the light of one of the decades most talented and passionate artists. Mac miller was highly underrated for his songwriting and his soulfulness. I personally didn’t quite get the whole sensation of the Mac until I watched his NPR tiny desk performance. I was sold hook line and sinker after seeing the performance. I had no idea he was such a talented musician. Mac miller’s talent was also evident when he teamed with another multi instrumentalist and drummer Anderson Paak. DANG!, immediately hit like a soulful and retrofitted banger that put the FU back in funky. Mac Miller’s untimely death forced me to take notice again so I tuned into his music after his death. His love for music has ultimately shone its glaring light far afte...

Juice World, Drugs and Hip Hop..It’s time for the talk.

With the recent deaths of Lil peep, Mac Miller and now Juice world maybe it’s time to have the talk. Can we blame hip hop for the demise that many young artists are suffering? Do the “harmless” but entertaining lyrics affect the minds of the people who listen to them? It’s hard not to imagine the proverbial sinister looking aged white man rubbing his hands together as he collects bags and bags of money while convincing black people to harm other black people, but who can we blame? Since his[sic Juice world] death Dec 8th 2019 many artists and blogs alike have pointed a heavy finger at Future whose mega hit molly Percocet scorched the airwaves encouraging young people to seek the world of escapeism through the use of highly addictive drugs. Lil Wayne’s , Pimp C’s, Mozzy’s, Juelz, Santana’s,...

Beat Battle Royale Producers competition

We have spent some time here at Beat Battle Royale reorganizing and restructuring our format. We are breaking down our competition structure to 8 heats. The top two producers from each heat will move on to the next round. Each heat will consist of 8 top unsigned producers.

It is however the goal of our platform to illuminate the next mega producers and bring and their abilities to the forefront. We don’t expect to build our brand overnight. We expect that with loyalty to our members, and a controlled quality group of producers and some outrageous incentives to participate, we will attain the reputation that we are the place that new producers will want to shine....
