Wednesday Night Nas celebrated his 38th birthday in New York with some of his closest friends, the list included Jay-Z, Ne-Yo, Carmelo Anthony and wife La La, DJ Khalid, Common, Mos Def and old group member Az from the Firm (Classic Album BTW) Foxy Brown seemed not to be in attendance maybe she didn’t get the memo.
Nas shares his birthday with his friend the Late Amy Winehouse who many don’t realize her song ‘Me and Mr Jones’ was about Nas. But The most notable picture I saw from the birthday bash was that of Nas and old Rival Jay-Z, last month when Lil’ Wayne’s Tha Carter IV leaked and people heard the Nas assisted Outro the entire Internet was shouting Shots had been fired
“There go my n***a Wayne, let them n***as hate
I love my n***a Drake say “we ain’t got time to respond to n***s”
I didn’t feel those lyrics were shot at Jay and by the looks of the pictures neither did he. Happy 38th Nasir Jones
Tyler has been out for a few years now but it wouldn’t be until his first video for his second album ‘Goblin’ dropped that a mainstream buzz would occur. Tyler released the video to ‘Yonkers’ in May of this year and the video shows that Tyler has demonic looks in his eyes as well as his Blasphemous lyrics on the track and the video ending with him hanging himself just through us all off. Chris Brown first highlighted the satanic lyrics about his group Odd future during their TwitterBeef a few months back and although Frank Ocean is apart of Odd Future he doesn’t seem to show the same views as his group members. If you go to Tyler’s twitter bio you’ll see he bares the Mark of the beast.
Just when everyone was getting used the fact that Jay-Z and Kanye West wasn’t really apart of the illuminati along came Tyler!
On his twitter page he has the Mark of the best, is he worshiping the devil or is he just trying to create a controversial reaction. Well if his lyrics on Goblin are anything to go by I’d saying this is very debatable.
Tyler’s Goblin album is dark, has blasphemous lyrics, lyrics that are beyond a joke and his visuals make sure they keep us talking. This year he won Best New Artist at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards so this looks like he will be around for a while.
Has Tyler taken it too far?Say Somethin’ !
One of the years most spoken about new artists Frank Ocean has dropped a video to his demo song ‘Thinking About You’ he wrote for Roc Nation artist Bridget Kelly. This looks to be a good year for Frank Ocean with a hit mixtape ‘nostalgia, ULTRA’ , Writing songs for Beyonce (see ‘I Miss You’ 4 album) and having not one but two appearances on ‘Watch The Throne’ by Hip Hop heavyweights Jay-Z and Kanye West a good year would be an understatement.
