“All you gon’ hear is ‘got damns’ and ‘Jesus Christ’s’/While these 90s beats become religious sacrifices/Rap game’s ISIS.” Fabolous has been terrorizing golden era instrumentals for the last two months and the body bags are lining up. Last night, Loso and Clue uploaded the newest edition in the Brooklyn MC’s Freestyle Friday series, appropriately borrowing the cover art for the film Friday which turns 20 years old tomorrow. For his latest act, he snaps over the Swizz Beatz produced “All For The Love,” Jadakiss’ solo record on The LOX’s debut album Money, Power & Respect.
While Fab has been riding the 1990s sound wave, recently going in on some of our favorite instrumentals of the past, he isn’t the only one. Here’s 14 other recently dropped freestyles over old school beats.
Listen to Loso’s latest toe tag, above.
When Marvel announced they’d be bringing Daredevil to Netflix ubiquitous sighs could be heard, largely due to flashbacks of Ben Affleck‘s poor portrayal of “The Man Without Fear”. However, the Netflix adaptation, starring Charlie Cox in the titular role, proved to not only be better than the 2003 film but pretty damn great in its own right. So great, that critics and fans alike, who’ve largely completed the 13-episode inaugural season of the Netflix-exclusive show, are already asking for more — and that’s what they will get.
Earlier this week Marvel announced that Daredevil will be renewed for a second season, set to air sometime next year. Showrunner and producer, Steven DeKnight, however will not be returning to the show as he has prior commitments coinciding with the production schedule of the next season. Doug Petrie (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), and Marco Ramirez (Sons of Anarchy) will step in as co-showrunners to replace DeKnight, and to assist current producer Drew Goddard this time around. Not much should change as both Petrie and Ramirez wrote for the first season of Daredevil alongside DeKnight. He said, “While previous commitments unfortunately prevent me from continuing on with Daredevil into its second season, I could not be happier that Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez are carrying the torch. They were invaluable collaborators during our first season, and I for one can’t wait to see what they do with the show moving forward.” Sounds promising enough.
Daredevil is one of four Marvel comic book heroes who will receive a Netflix original series, with Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and Jessica Jones all slated to receive shows, the culmination of which will be a miniseries based on The Defenders superhero team.
Cox has also expressed interest in taking Daredevil to the big screen in a cameo in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War film, but that’s less than likely. “Well he’s in the comics, but I think they’re already… I think I might have missed that boat… So unless someone watches the show and falls so madly in love with it that they decide to get me in for a day, that would be great, but I have no idea,” Cox said in a recent interview. With principal photography for Civil War to commence in coming weeks the cameo will probably not come to fruition.
If you haven’t checked out Daredevil
what the hell are you waiting for you can watch it here – you won’t regret it.
The powerful Civil Rights film is guaranteed to be in classrooms across the country.
Ava DuVernay‘s crazy powerful film will be given to schools both public and private free of charge, and even with companion study guides, if requested; all thanks to Paramount Home Media Distribution.
“The response from students and teachers to our ‘Selma for Students’ initiative was overwhelmingly positive and we are delighted to be extending the campaign,” said Megan Colligan, president, Worldwide Distribution and Marketing at Paramount Pictures. “During the film’s theatrical run more than 300,000 young people were able to see the film for free. By providing DVDs to all of the high schools in the country, we hope to reach all 18 million high school students with the film’s powerful and inspiring story. With many of these students preparing to vote for the first time in next year’s elections, it is especially fitting that they witness the bravery and fortitude of those who fought to establish the Voting Rights Act of 1965.”
The film follows the story of Martin Luther King Jr. and other Civil Rights figures as they organized the 1965 voting rights march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama. A whole new generation is looking to get inspired. Selma is available now on Digital HD and will be available on Blu-ray and DVD May 5.

Bruce Jenner’s decision to transition from a male to a female has been big news, and a polarizing topic, over the last couple of weeks. Last night, Kim K’s step daddy appeared on ABC for an hour-long interview with Diane Sawyer to discuss his change up and how it has affected him and his family.
Needless to say, the interview has sparked a lot of conversation and brings up a larger issue of acceptance of transgenders in America. Several people in the hip-hop community took to social media to give their two cents on the topic. The opinions were mixed, ranging from outrage to hilarity (Freddie Gibbs), to full support for the former Olympic gold medalist.
Check out some of the Twitter and Instagram reactions, below.
Bruce Jenner decided hes a woman..Freddie Gray didnt decide to be killed by police..Lets get focused Black People, theyve distracted us with Rose, watches , cars and chains,now we care more about a man transitioning to a woman than The Fact that theyre killing our Kids with no consequence. we gotta do better..

Just like everything in the Kardashian household, Olympic gold medalist Bruce Jenner’s decision to transition from a male to a female has played out very publically. The family seems to be all in support of Jenner’s adjustment, but that wasn’t always the case. Jenner recently sat down for an interview with ABC’s Diane Sawyer and revealed it was Kanye West who helped his wife Kim (Jenner’s stepdaughter) deal with his change. “Kim told me a story,” said Jenner. She goes, ‘You know what really turned me around on thinking about this?’ I said, ‘What?’ She goes, ‘Kanye.’ I went, ‘Oh, okay.’”
The 6’2″ former athlete said the Grammy award winning artist gave Kim a different outlook on how to see things. Jenner continued, “[Kanye] says to Kim ‘Look, I can be married to the most beautiful woman in the world, and I am. I can have the most beautiful little daughter in the world, and I have that. But I’m nothing if I can’t be me. If I can’t be true to myself, they don’t mean anything.’”
West’s words of wisdom apparently worked, “Since then, Kimberly has been, by far, the most accepting, and the easiest to talk to about it,” Jenner confirmed.
Under those stone-faced looks just might be a heart of gold.
