Kendrick Lamar interviews N.W.A About Coming 'Straight Outta Compton' and Rap Changing the World

Image Source:

There is nothing more amazing then witnessing your favourite rapper, interview his. Kendrick Lamar proper geeked out interviewing N.W.A members Ice Cube, DJ Yella, MC Ren and Dr Dre. 

The interview keeps you on your toes and makes you really feel like hip hop truly is alive. With the group even saying that they thought they were big then that now, they will even be bigger. 

We could go on and quote you what each member has said that struck a chord for us, but one did hit us pretty hard as creatives that love hip hop and do it all for the love of music. 

"You're never poor, when you're doing something creating" Ice Cube.

Watch it here.

We did, so we strongly hope you do as well.

Rest in peace Sean Price. 


How one post from a Collective Shout supporter contradicts its banning of Tyler The Creator campaign


News broke that Tyler The Creator cancelled his shows in Australia. While most of us hip hop heads find it hard enough to see our favourite acts, we are now in danger of having to deal with organisations trying to ban artists’ that have not been convicted of any crimes, but purely banned for their lyrical content. 

Many have taken to Facebook to express their views, of course there are many that are in support of the movement, with the group even dubbing it a ‘win.’ The fact is, it is not a win. Their ‘win’ involves bullying an artist to no longer play for a country that where he clearly has a great following. They have also managed to use feminism as a case. This is why we can't have nice things people. 

There was one Facebook post that does however clearly sum up the irony of the whole campaign. The post highlights how everyone’s opinion is different and hopes for Tyler supporters to “respect other people enough to recognise that not everyone is going to agree with you.” Right… isn’t this exactly the opposite of what you’re celebrating here?

This of course is my opinion. And well if you don't like it, well I hope you can let me speak my mind freely.
