Fatboy SSE never would have thought getting a burger slapped out of his hand on Instagram would catapult him into internet stardom, but the rapper/comedian has grown over four million loyal followers before our eyes.

The New Jersey-born funny man knew he made it when Diddy called his cell, telling him he wanted to work together. Now, he’s ready to continue blessing the world – not only with his hilarious skits, but by directly giving back. “My dream is big, like to help the world. I want to go to Africa, and just build houses and stuff. I want to take my money and do the right thing,” he said.

Fatboy sat down with The Source TV for an episode of “Up in the Source” to discuss what made him pop off, what it was like working with Diddy and adopting a pescatarian lifestyle.

She never expected “Dip Dip freestyle,” a diss track she made as a joke, to go viral and inspire her to write a whole mixtape. Now, As the rise of female emcees have gained more spotlight in today’s music scene, Bali Baby continues to stay on her grind as being someone who not only remains fluid in her wardrobe choices, but in her music which ranges from hard beats to trippy melodies. After several successful mixtapes and filming her YouTube series, “Ganging with Gang”, Bali is currently on her PlayGirl world wide tour and promoting the release of her latest most experimental project, “Baylor Swift.”

The artist has always been known to adopt alter ego’s and derive personas by popular names in the industry. “Baylor Swift” is her eight-track debut album that puts Bali at the top of the scale when it comes to showing how much of an actual rock star she is.  Bali has said this album “Tells the tale of a broken hearted girl who put her all into the mic.” Once you listen to the tracks, “Electrical” and “Tough”, it proves to be just that.

We sat down with the Atlanta-born rapper on Source TV to discuss her views on the #MeToo movement, petty beef, and how to navigate the music industry as a successful independent female artist.

10 Sneakers on Classic Rap Albums That You Can Still Cop Right Now http://thesource.com/2018/04/19/10-sneakers-classic-rap-hip-hop-albums-buy-right-now/ http://thesource.com/2018/04/19/10-sneakers-classic-rap-hip-hop-albums-buy-right-now/#respond Thu, 19 Apr 2018 17:34:26 +0000 http://thesource.com/?p=437313 Hip-hop and sneaker culture have gone hand-in-hand since Run-DMC first rapped about their adidas in 1986 — a move that led to a lucrative partnership between the Three Stripes and the three-man band, and ultimately created a lane others swiftly followed.

Hip-hop and sneaker culture have gone hand-in-hand since Run-DMC first rapped about their adidas in 1986 — a move that led to a lucrative partnership between the Three Stripes and the three-man band, and ultimately created a lane others swiftly followed. From Jay-Z’s S. Carter deal with Reebok to Kanye’s current YEEZY deal with adidas, there’s no telling how far hip-hop will take it when it comes to the sneaker game.

We decided to look at 10 of our favorite sneaker moments on the covers of classic rap albums, and even went a step further to show you where you can get those same kicks now if your pockets are feeling a bit nostalgic. Keep scrolling to see our picks:



Missy Elliott – Supa Dupa Fly (1997)
The Sneaker: Nike Air Force 1 Mid

On top of redefining the genre of hip-hop for a new era of female emcees in the mid ‘90s, Missy Elliott was also known for her eclectic style. On the cover of her debut LP Supa Dupa Fly, the rapstress proved to be just that with a custom leather baseball jersey and a pair of super fresh white-on-white Uptowns. When it came to steez, Missy always put her thing down, flipped it, and reversed it for the culture.

LL Cool J – Radio (1985)
The Sneaker: Air Jordan 1 Hi “Bred”

Technically this is the back cover of the original King James’ debut album, but it still counts! Who would’ve known that a sneaker — the “Bred” 1s to be exact — he was donning during his “Rock The Bells” era three decades ago would still be a sought-after shoe in 2018. The shoe is so iconic in fact that it’s dropping again this Friday in Chicago (and again next month as a wider release) with a completely warped style from the original design.

Available At: Flight Club



The Game – The Documentary (2005)
The Sneaker: Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Hi

No sneaker in the history of West Coast hip-hop defines the region more than a pair of Chuck Taylors. For The Game’s debut album on Aftermath/G-Unit Records — what is it about first albums and sneakers? — he chose black high tops with the white toe box and equally crisp laces. Five million copies later, The Documentary is still a classic. Whether or not the All Stars helped pushed those numbers is arguable.

Available At: Converse



Busta Flex – Busta Flex (1998)
The Sneaker: Air Jordan 13 Retro “He Got Game”

Dropping some UK flavor on us, French MC Busta Flex busted out more than a fresh jam on his, yep, debut album. Ironically, the LP’s lead single was called “Kick avec mes Nike” (translation: “Kick with my Nike”), which probably influenced him to rock these classic sneakers we now know as the “He Got Game” 13s famously worn by Denzel Washington in the 1998 film. In the words of the French, c’est d’la bombe!

Available At: Stadium Goods



A$AP Mob – Cozy Tapes Vol. 2: Too Cozy (2017)
The Sneaker(s): [on J. Scott] Reebok Club C 85 / [on A$AP Rocky] adidas x Rick Owens Cargo Sandals.

Last year A$AP Mob had one of the best crew rap albums of 2017, with each member adding an element that proves why they work so well together as a unit. Of course, anyone familiar with the Mob knows how important they take their fashion game. While Rocky dons a pair of Rick Owens that only he could pull off, DJ J. Scott balances it out in a Reebok model we all know and love. Cozy Boys for sure.

Available At: Reebok / eBay



Wale – The Album About Nothing (2015)
The Sneaker(s): [on Wale] Air Jordan 4 Retro “Black Cement” / [on Seinfeld] Air Jordan 6 Retro “Sports Blue”

In a match made in sneakerhead heaven, Wale and Jerry Seinfeld (yes, THE Seinfeld) came together for a meeting of the minds on this perfectly-executed album cover. While the D.C. MC chose a more general Jordan release, our guy Seinfeld stayed true to style and rocked the same “Sports Blue” 6s he’s been championing since his days on primetime NBC. We still can’t believe how well this duo came together.

Available At: Stadium Goods / Flight Club



J. Cole – 2014 Forest Hills Drive (2014)
The Sneaker: Air Jordan 1 Retro “Carmine”

As we prepare for J. Cole’s pleasant surprise called KOD arriving tomorrow, it’s never a bad time to look back at his previously-released modern classic, 2014 Forest Hills Drive. Themed around his childhood home in Queens, the Roc Nation golden boy sits atop said house with a pair of kicks that any sneaker fiend wouldn’t mind having in their daily rotation.

Available At: StockX



Dizzee Rascal – Boy in da Corner (2003)
The Sneaker: Nike Air Max BW

This king of Grime is an innovator in every sense of the word, especially when it came to bringing brand endorsements overseas. Dizzee has done tons of collabs with Nike since gaining notoriety for this album, and his influence has gone on to inspire his successors in the game. Stormzy and adidas? Skepta and Air Max? It all started with this guy.

Available At: eBay



Chi-Ali – The Fabulous Chi-Ali (1992)
The Sneaker: Air Jordan 6 Retro “Infrared”

The fabulous Bronx MC also has on some fabulously fly kicks for his first and only album to date. While the sneakers he had on are probably more memorable than the album itself, we still give the Native Tongues affiliate props for his contributions to the culture. We wonder if Chi still has his OG pair, especially since the last time we saw these bad boys drop was in 2014.

Available At: Stadium Goods



Grandmaster Flash – The Source (1986)
The Sneaker: PONY Slam Dunk

Of course, we had to bring it home with all puns intended on this one. On the cover for Grandmaster Flash’s fourth LP, he kept it fresh in a classic product of New York. Both Flash and PONY are considered icons of the ’80s, so this pairing ended up being a match for the ages. Calling your album The Source, well, that’s just an added bonus.

Available At: Amazon



Honorable Mention: Nicki Minaj – “Anaconda” [Single] (2014)
The Sneaker: Air Jordan 4 Retro GS “Game Royal”

One look at “The Generous Queen” on the single cover of her record-breaking single is enough to turn heads (or crash a car), but the Js that she’s rocking are pretty clean too. Of course, you get a pass if they weren’t the first thing you noticed in this picture though.

From outrageous music videos to “Booty” giveaways on Instagram, Memphis rapper Blac Youngsta can be considered one of 2018’s most entertaining MC’s. Apparently, Yo Gotti realized this before the rest of America, and signed him to Collective Music Group in 2015.

Two years later, he signed to Epic Records, releasing the singles “Hip Hopper” featuring Lil Yachty and “Booty,” which have both received millions of streams. With the release of his debut album, 223, in February of 2018, Blac Youngsta landed in the Top 50 upon its arrival. The album’s guests included Travis Scott, Chris Brown, and French Montana.

The rapper sat with Source TV to discuss his early Memphis days, linking up with Yo Gotti, and the power in “no” to things you don’t f**k with.

Azealia Banks has always owned the ability to capture your attention in one form or another. Whether you were listening all the way back during her “212” days or found yourself checking for her twitter rants, Banks has solidified her spot in the underground rap scene as an artist who despite some non-music related headlines, will still come out with content that makes you forget it all.
On Friday, April 6th, The Harlem native dropped “Anna Wintour”, the highly anticipated single off of Fantasea II. With little to no promotion, fans both old and new have been mesmerized by the club-ready beat by Junior Sanchez infused with the soulful high notes Banks layers into her sound. Of course, Banks spits a fiery verse in the middle of her single so listeners can get a taste of what a seasoned lyricist sounds like. Her lyric video is a Josie and The Pussycats inspired animated clip that brings viewers into the creative mind of Azealia Banks and visuals.

One thing’s for certain though, “Anna Wintour” is a bop. If this is what Fantasea II has in store for us, then its June release can’t come soon enough.

As Americans continue to embrace comic book movies, Star Wars franchises, and video games, rapper Mega Ran, is redefining both hip hop and geek culture with his signature “nerdcore” genre- much to the delight of fans (and the dismay of Alex Trebek). Courtesy of 12G Agency, we sat down with Mega Ran to find out more about his inspiration, upcoming projects, and what he’s playing on his gaming system now.

The Source:

Welcome, we’re excited to have you here. We’ve got so many questions and we know that you’ve been up to a lot, but first of all, your last album did very well, so congrats.

Mega Ran:

Thank you, yes, we’re still working it, still shooting videos and having fun with it. I think it was the most complete project I feel that I’ve completed- ever. I’m really proud of it.

It was indeed very good. And you just released another video, “Airplane Mode.” Where did the idea for that come from?

I feel like airplane mode seems like “I’m so fly, I’m flying around, stunting on people,” but for me, when you go on the airplane, you have to switch your phone to airplane mode for safety. So, I feel like you have to do that for your own safety and protection- you have to shut the world out sometimes. You have to shut out the Facebook, Instagram, you know- the distractions- so you can fly.

That’s profound! What’s next in the works?

I’m on the Generations Tour now. I’m going to be doing some more tours. Right now I do about two songs a month on Patreon for exclusive materials for fans who want new stuff all the time. And I’m working on a compilation project with Soul Spasm that will be out this summer. It’s all my favorite collabs that I’ve done with people- I want to take all those songs and put it into one place. It’s called The Visitor and will be coming this summer.

Excellent! So, growing up, who were some of your biggest musical influences?

I’m a big fan of LL Cool J. His versatility and longevity has really inspired me. I’m a big fan of Stevie Wonder, you know someone who consistently makes great music with a message. New stuff- I’m into J Cole, Kendrick, a lot of new stuff. Guys that can realty rhyme.

OK, so now the serious question. DC or Marvel universe?

This is an easy one. It’s Marvel all day! DC though, makes really good animated movies. See, I was a former teacher so I have to make the compliment sandwich. You start out with something not so positive and then put something positive in the middle- some cream filling. So, DC makes great animated movies, but Marvel has everything else on lock.

So, what did you teach? I know you used to teach middle school. What subjects did you teach?

I did reading and social studies to 6th, 7th,and 8th graders. I mean, that age is the worst ever. But they make you laugh, they keep you on your toes, they keep me inspired. And they love hip hop. Hip hop is the language of the youth so I would tell them that I made music, so I would bribe them with “if you get your work done, I’ll spit a freestyle.” So they were big into it- I think I learned a lot about performing from teaching. I mean, you’re literally performing. You’re on stage, but you’re just in front of a classroom trying to get those 30 or something kids to believe in you the same way you’re trying to get an audience to come into your world.

And middle school- they’re usually sober and that’s even harder.

[Laughs]

I hope they’re sober!

So now we love The Force Pull (the Star Wars Rap) and there is a new Star Wars coming out- Solo.

Shout out to Slopfunkdust (Rawkus Records, Beat Fanatic) and director Eljay Perez for the track. I’m a Star Wars fan and Solo… hmmm… the one thing I’m excited about is Donald Glover as Lando. I was like “ok, this has got to be good.” I think it’s going to be good. Star Wars diehards are a little nervous about it because they haven’t showed a whole lot and they keep switching directors and things. But I’m just going to let them do it and I’m going to consume it and enjoy it.

Well I know the director said that it’s not going to be your traditional Star Wars- that this is a “heist movie,” so it’s a little different.

The Star Wars world is changing and I’m here for it.

OK, so now let me prepare for another serious question. You are incredibly well-versed in video games. What are you playing right now? What gaming system are you on?

I have a Nintendo Switch and a PlayStation 4 right now. On Ps4, I’m playing Monster Hunter World- so good. That’s my game of the year. But you have to play it with friends. You know, hunt down giant monsters and bash them in the head- it’s so fun. But it’s hard- you need help. But then when I’m not home, it’s hard because my friends have leveled up and I’m like “hey guys, come help me,” so I hate that when I’m on tour, they’re like level 100 and I’m like level two, but the game is amazing. On Switch, I’m playing Celeste, which is my second game of the year. It’s like a Mega Man type game with a lot of puzzles and things. It has a female lead character trying to climb this mountain. It’s a great game- fun and challenging.

So now that we’re talking about video games. Our president thinks that violent video games are a problem. I mean, we all came up with these games. They were saying the same thing in the 90’s, so now everyone from then is grown up and mostly productive members of society. What would you say to Trump about this?

I think that’s a bit much- I think it’s a stretch. People try to pick the low-hanging fruits, the easy targets to be like “oh it must be the games.” I remember when Grand Theft Auto was supposed to be the death of society. But those people that have played those games have gone on, like you said, to be just fine. Statistics have shown that nobody plays a game and then goes out and does those crazy things. If anything, you sit down and play those games so you don’t do those things- it’s an escape- which is what we try to do with music too.

OK, so this is for The Source. What’s been your favorite Source moment over the last 30 years? Besides your previous features in The Source.

Oh man, ok, I remember way back when I read the review for Illmatic. I’m taking you way back here and they gave it five mics. And we’re like “no way!” So we started reading into it and we’re like “DJ Premiere is on this? Oh my God! Pete Rock? Q-Tip? Oh my God!” So we’re thinking this might be good. So I put the magazine down and went to the record store and immediately bought Illmatic because of The Source and then we took it home, me and my buddy Chuck, and we pressed play and just grooved nonstop and I’m like “yo, it’s a classic. The Source was right!” So, I think that’s my favorite Source moment.

Well we believe that you’re a classic and we love what you’re doing and we’re very happy to have you. Thank you for your time.

Thank you to you! Big ups to The Source. You guys have been there through my entire hip hop upbringing, so I appreciate it.

After being gone from the scene, the king of crunk Lil Jon is back with a new video for his latest single featuring fellow Atlanta Rappers 2 Chainz and Offset.  “Set if Off” comes to us after Lil Jon took a break from new music, selling out shows and DJing.  The song features the three in an animated virtual world surrounded by money, cars, and big butts.

Snapchat is under fire for posting an insensitive ad featuring Chris Brown and Rihanna.  The ever popular social media channel posted an ad the other day that promoted an app that asked users if they would rather “slap Rihanna or punch Chris Brown.”  The ad has since been taken down and an apology issued to both stars however Rihanna was still not happy and called the social network out for their ignorance toward domestic violence victims.

Hip-Hop hot boy Vince Staples has informed his fans that he has infect canceled his supposed retirement Go FundMe, matched the amount of funds that were raised and donated it to the North Long Beach branch of the Michelle Obama Library.  The rapper has given all the funds back to those who donated and has claimed that the Go FundMe was really a publicity stunt to promote his new single “Get The F*** My Dick.”

Fans of both streetwear and old school hip-hop will be excited for this weeks drops from the popular street wear brand.  Among the collections featured this week from Supreme include it’s collab with Public Enemy paying homage to the groups third album Fear of a Black Planet.  To promote the collection which drops today in US stores and March 17th in Japan, Supreme released a short video showcasing all the pieces and Chuck D narrating the motivation behind the album.

Adding to todays drops and releases, New Balance brings back their classic 574 in grey for Grey Day.  The footwear brand aims to remind sneaker heads of the success the shoe has brought despite the simplicity of the shoe.  The Legacy of Grey pack will be available at select retailers including New Balance, Footlocker and Finish Line along with sneaker boutiques KITH, Extra Butter and Concepts.

A British Political Group has been banned from Facebook after what the social network claims is hate speech.  Britain First has had it’s facebook profile removed along with the facebook pages of two of its prominent leaders Jayda Fransen and Paul Golding.  Facebook made a statement claiming even political speech can even go to far when it aims to “stir up hatred” between groups in our society.    Facebook has rules against this type of content on it’s platform and hopes to prevent Facebook from being used in such a harmful way.

In sports, the Golden State Warriors beat the Los Angeles Lakers last night 117 – 106 with Lakers Julius Randale scoring 22 points and Warriors Kevin Durant scoring 26.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. maybe actually taking his talents to the UFC if the money is right.

On Tuesday, Mayweather posted a short clip on Instagram of him stepping into an MMA cage, before Conor McGregor hilariously responded with “Keep up the good work, my son. Yours sincerely, Senior.”

The 14-second video is the latest in a series of recent social media posts from Mayweather.

On Monday, he posted a photo of him landing a punch on McGregor from their boxing match in August. And on Tuesday, Mayweather put up a short video of him stepping into an MMA cage.

Mayweather, of course, welcomed Conor McGregor to the boxing ring last summer, schooling the UFC lightweight champion before winning by 10th-round TKO in “The Money Fight” that did huge numbers and raked in a ton of cash. Mayweather said afterward that he was officially retired, but he continues to tease another possible crossover.

The idea of a 40-year-old with no MMA experience would have a chance in the octagon with an MMA champ is crazy. What is even crazier is the amount of money this potential fight would generate.
