joey bada$$ claims he's a better rapper than 2pac 'bar for bar'

Joey Bada$$ has claimed he's a better rapper than Tupac Shakur, but says he means no disrespect to his favorite rapper of all time. In a video interview with Genius that ran Tuesday celebrating the end of Black History Month, the 22-year-old Bada$$ asserted he could beat the late icon in a rap battle.  "I already know I'm a better rapper than Tupac is," he said. "That's just facts. One-on-one battle, I'll flame 'Pac."On Wednesday (March 1), Bada$$ clarified his remarks on Twitter, saying he was referring to skill alone -- "not accolades or influence."In the Genius interview, Bada$$ gave context to his hefty claim, saying, "I believe every generation that comes after has the opportunity to outshine the previous generation. Because they gave you their best. Now, they set the bar. It was like

michelle obama praises chance the rapper's donation

Former First Lady and education activist Michelle Obama praised fellow Chicagoan Chance the Rapper after he announced a $1 million donation to Chicago Public Schools.Yesterday, Chance held a press conference at Westcott Elementary School on Chicago's South Side, where he spoke about a "call to action" to help support arts education in Chicago's schools. Last week, Chance met with Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner to discuss education funding, but the Grammy award-winning rapper left the meeting "frustrated." "Our kids should not be held hostage because of political positioning," Chance said in his press conference.The rapper's news was met with positivity across various social media platforms — most notably from Michelle Obama herself. In a tweet, she thanked Chance for being "an example of the p

DJ Khaled is already known for his extensive collaborations with other icons, but his next song and music video might just pack the most star power in one place yet.The producer's Instagram feed is currently chock-full of guest appearances from Chance the Rapper, Migos, Lil Wayne, and Justin Bieber. They all seem to be shooting a music video together in support of Khaled's forthcoming 10th album, Grateful, though the details, as he puts it, are still "top secret."Here's what we do know: Justin Bieber looks happier than he's been in months, especially when he's running laps around Khaled for no real reason. Chance the Rapper is wearing a hoodie with horses on it in one photo. And Khaled's son Asahd is executive producing the whole thing like he did with "Shining." The kid already has great

He said the defense had maintained from the beginning that the whole thing was a mistake; that the rapper had accidentally taken his wife's bag to the airport without knowing the gun was inside.

a$ap rocky stars in mercedes-benz 'get a job' spot

Before becoming a worldwide hip-hop sensation and fashion muse, rapper A$AP Rocky was a younger brother, growing up in Harlem, who experienced tragedy before finding his calling.For Mercedes-Benz's "Get a Job" spot, the rapper remembers his older brother, who was killed in a shooting at 20 years old, and his impact on his career path."I guess when you're young, you can be anything you want to choose," reflects Rocky in the promo for the CLA Coupe. "But as you get older, all those options start to narrow, and before you know it, every choice you make comes with a consequence. Whenever shit got rough, this beat was always there."He continued, "My brother moved on but the beat came back, pulsing through every vein in my body. My older brother Ricky was the one responsible for me growing up, a

why jay z deserves to be the first rapper in the songwriters hall of fame

True hip-hop heads may spot the irony in Jay Z receiving a songwriter’s accolade, considering some of his most seminal work was never written down prior to recording. Like some of his contemporaries, the rap legend was known for stepping inside the studio booth and firing off whatever was on his mind. The difference between Jay Z and the rest, however, was what became of the product. Here is an artist who thus far has kept us hot for 20 summers through new releases and revisited classics. His music -- which early on straddled the line between drug rap and opulence -- has evolved and made its way into the mainstream frame of reference. He released an entire book dissecting the intricate parts of his lyrics. There is no other hip-hop artist more qualified to take this historical leap as the

When Couric politely asked about Chance’s one and only tattoo, the Coloring Book MC agreed to show it on-camera and share the story behind it.“It’s so stupid, I hate it. No one’s seen it,” he told Couric, while lifting his shirt to reveal the “get back to work” tattoo that sits above his heart. “It’s a backward tattoo. It’s a mirror tattoo, which is a
