High court reject’s rapper C-Murder’s appeal

In MAGAZINE on February 19, 2013 at 4:27 pm

The Supreme Court has passed up another chance to deal with an anomaly of constitutional law that requires federal juries to reach unanimous verdicts in criminal cases, but allows states to make different rules.

The court on Tuesday rejected the appeal of the rapper known as C-Murder, who is serving a life sentence for killing a 16-year-old fan in Louisiana. A jury voted 10-2 to convict the rapper, whose real name is Corey Miller.

Louisiana and Oregon are the only two states that allow for non-unanimous convictions for some crimes.

The justices recently have rejected similar appeals asking them to treat state and federal trials equally. Decisions involving gun rights and other issues generally require states to extend the same constitutional rights as the federal government.

Chief Keef getting Baptised when he’s released from detention center

In MAGAZINE on February 19, 2013 at 3:59 pm

Chief Keef is looking to religion once he is released from juvenile detention.

The Sun Times reports that Rev. Corey Brooks wants to baptize Keef, he said on Friday.

The Chicago minister, who is known as the “rooftop pastor,” plans on helping Keef take a vow into Christianity. He has visited Keef at the juvenile detention facility in St. Charles and shared his insights on the 17-year-old.

“I think people forget he is 17 years old,” Brooks said. “He is not a bad kid.”

He added that Keef “has had a chance to think” to understand his impact as an young entertainer.

“He is an entertainer, that is how he sees himself. But at the same time, he has a God-consciousness. He is not some terror who is wreaking havoc.”

The pastor plans on baptizing Keef at the New Beginnings Church in the Woodlawn neighborhood.

Can Hip Hop be saved? Dolo The Bandit says he can save it!

In MAGAZINE on February 18, 2013 at 1:54 pm

Dolo The Bandit and his history reads like the epic saga of a great super hero who arose from the ashes like a phoenix.  Surviving a shotgun blast to the face in 2010, it appeared to be all but over for the upcoming New York MC.  In total storybook fashion, somewhat like the hero of a classic martial arts film, Dolo was saved by providence, vanished off the grid and revamped and honed his skills to reappear triumphant on the music scene.

2011 was a year of achievement and reward in this game of thrones for the Super Rap MC, he was nominated as “Most Original Artist” at the Underground Music Awards; received feature placement for his song “Get Down” in Spike Lee’s feature film, “You’re Nobody til Somebody Kills You” and stood out as one of only three featured songs in the film.  Joining Dolo in this honor was Ice T and his protégée Black Silver with their cut “Chevy ‘64”. 

Hailing from New York, Dolo the Bandit is a testament to the legacy born in the seat of power of the worldwide Hip Hop Kingdom.  Hard work and dedication have earned this emcee a place at the table with those shaping the future and ensuring the return to quality Hip Hop for the masses.

“Roach clips” is the lead single from Dolo’s upcoming album “Project Monarch” & can be purchased on the link below.

Justin Timberlake Gets Dressed In His “Suit & Tie” This Valentine’s Day {NEW VIDEO}

R&B dudes have a way of making you feel good when you least expect it. Justin Timberlake decided to get dressed up this Valentine’s Day and release his new video for “Suit & Tie” ft. Jay-Z.

When I originally heard the song I wasn’t too impressed. It takes approximately one minute before it picks up which is way too long in my opinion. After I listened to the intro, I was turned off. I honestly don’t think I heard it all the way through until her performed it during the 2013 Grammy Awards; and then I was hooked.

The video reminds me of his Grammy performance. You can’t go wrong paying homage to the great Frank Sinatra while looking dapper in a Tom Ford suit.

“Suit & Tie” is the first official single from…
