AC: Angel ft. Lina Morgana

"This a BRAND NEW song by AC named “Angel” featuring Lina Morgana (prod. by J.Glaze). Lina Morgana is a pop star whose was life was cut short by tragic events in which took place in Staten Island, NY. This record comes in the wake of Lina’s mother’s diligent efforts to carry on her daughters legacy by releasing new music to the public. Lina’s name is also in the middle of a controversy that involves pop sensation and former friend Lady Gaga. Lina’s mother claims Lady Gaga stole her whole style, identity and edgy look. This story has gained national coverage and has encouraged fans to come to their own conclusion. On “Angel” (re-adapted by producer J.Glaze, originally produced by Rob Fusari) AC tells a story about a girl lost in the world suffering from severe depression. Lina’s incredible vocal tone and range only enhances the theme of the song."

Jay-Z Breaks Down Most Kingz Verse

Jay-Z is set to release his much anticipated book titled "Decoded". I'm definitely picking this one up! Should be a good read! Here's an excerpt from "Decoded".

"When I first started working on this book, I told my editor that I wanted it to do three important things. The first was to make the case that hip-hop lyrics-not just my lyrics, but those of every great MC-are poetry if you look at them closely enough. The second was I wanted the book to tell a little bit of the story of my generation, to show the context for the choices we made at a violent and chaotic crossroads in recent history. And the third piece was that I wanted the book to show how hip-hop created a way to take a very specific and powerful experience and turn it into a story that everyone in the world could feel and relate to."

"To say 'Hamdulillah' is to be grateful for what one has.

The images of the past decades have cast a veil on our identity as a people. We, as international brothers and sisters, are now witness to injustice in real time. We watch our Wars in HD.

It is time for us to claim our faces back.

This video is a global collaborative effort by 10 photographers- from London to Lebanon, Cairo To Canada, Abu Dhabi to America- to create a portrait of the New Global Citizens. They are DJs, MCs, poets, architects, teachers, doctors, parents and children. Most of all they are people.

Thank you to everyone that was involved. We are blessed to have each other."
