Pusha T Fires Shots At Drake & Young Chop , Lil Wayne Reponds On Twitter

Last night, Pusha T released his new cut “Exodus 23:1” believed to be aimed at Drake and Young Chop.

Over a ghostly beat, the G.O.O.D. Music signee takes square aim at Drizzy with lines including, “Beef is when you hide behind them other niggas / But they ain’t killers, they ain’t pullin’ them triggers, fuck niggas.”

He made reference to Drake’s recording contract, most likely referring to the fact that he’s signed to Lil Wayne, who is signed to Birdman whose label is housed under Universal Music. “Contract all fucked / Explain up I guess that means you all fucked up / You signed to one nigga that signed to another nigga that’s signed to three niggas / Now that’s bad luck,” he raps.

Young Chop, on the other hand, got a one-off couplet about his issue with Kanye West remaking his beat for the remix of Chief Keef’s “I Don’t Like.” “You can keep your beats, nigga / We’d much rather share your bitch, nigga, bitch nigga,” he spits.

Wayne has already outright responded to the comments. “Fuk pusha t and anybody that love em,” he tweeted.

Brooklyn Residents Sign Petition to Rename Park in MCA’s Name

Residents of late Beastie Boys’ member, Adam “MCA” Yauch, want a New York City park renamed in honor of the fallen rapper. And Yauch’s hometown of Brooklyn is representing in a major way by signing a petition.

The petition, which recently went viral on Facebook, has the aim to change the name of the Squibb Park, in Brooklyn Heights, to Adam Yauch Park. The post stated that that park is in the process of being converted into a skateboarding facility and Brooklyn Bridge Park’s gateway.

MCA and the Beastie boys have had ties to the skateboarding community for a long time, being featured in many classic skate videos and having their own signature skateboard decks. In 1994, Yauch worked with director Spike Jonze, a former BMX rider and skateboarder, for the Beastie Boys’ music video, “Sabotage.”

Across from the park is Harry Chapin Playground, named after the rocker who, like Yauch, was also a native of Brooklyn Heights. Previously, XXLMag.com reported about a mural that was painted in Brooklyn in tribute of MCA.

Yauch died on May 4 after a three-year bout with cancer. He became a vegan at the recommendations of his Tibetan doctors shortly after his diagnosis. Yauch’s death sent shockwaves through the hip-hop community with the likes of Eminem, Nas and Jay-Z all sending their messages of heartfelt condolences.

The Beasties went on to win multiple Grammys and became the third hip-hop group to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Yauch is survived by both his wife and daughter.—Christopher Minaya (xxlmag)

Big Fun” Showcases Early LL Cool J, Doug E Fresh

Dutch filmmaker Bram van Splunteren has re-released his rarely-seen hip-hop documentary, “Big Fun in the Big Town,” a film that was originally shot in 1986 and that captures several hip hop legends in New York City in the mid-80s. Some of the film’s most memorable moments feature LL Cool J discussing writing love raps, Doug E Fresh beatboxing in Harlem and Grandmaster Flash scratching records on his living room table.

The film was originally broadcast on Dutch Public television and now 5 Day Weekend has made the footage available worldwide commercially. The DVD was released this week.

“I discovered rap thanks to one of the first Beastie Boys 12 inches, ‘She’s On It’ [from the soundtrack of 1985 film, Krush Groove],” he explained to AllHipHop.  “And shortly after that I got an offer to direct six music documentaries. Big Fun was the first to be completed and my very first documentary for Dutch national television. In the same year, I did one about Iggy Pop. Both were filmed in the USA. And in the next year, I filmed docs on Nick Cave, John Hiatt, and Liverpool. I also documented The Red Hot Chili Peppers’ first European tour in 1987 as they traveled Europe in a small van. I was the first filmmaker to make a documentary about them and I filmed them on several occasions afterwards.” (hiphopblog)
