The planet is currently in the midst of the sixth mass extinction, said the study by scientists from 22 different institutions in six countries.
But this one differs from previous ones because it is entirely driven by human activity — through changes in land use, climate, pollution, hunting, fishing and poaching — and is focused on large, or apex, predators.
“The loss of apex consumers is arguably humankind’s most pervasive influence on the natural world,” said the study.
The effects can be seen in the oceans and on land.

I noticed you avoided quoting Sha Money’s comments from that too.
Like Sha isn’t clearly biased.
Just like you.
Cause no way do 7 songs make an album.
“A Song IS the hook and the topic”
So the verses just take care of themselves huh?
Ok. If that’s what you’d like to believe, have at it. But real rappers do more then write hooks.
“ANYONE can rap– not EVERYONE can write a song. Jayceon couldn’t write songs– matter of fact, he STILL can’t.”
The Doctor’s Advocate says different.
And what has 50′s song writing abilities gotten him recently?
But was he really? It seemed like his version of events were corraborated by the story much more than Jayceons was, and the producer comments in that article showed it.
And I’m biased because my ears work? OK. Me saying, “Hey, this Hate or Love It song sounds like a Curtis record– oh wait, Cool and Dre said they gave the song to Sha Money, Sha said Curtis recorded it and gave it Jayceon, and Jayceon saying he met Cool and Dre, but Cool and Dre said something COMPLETELY different” is biased?
And yea, 7 songs DO make an album, especially when 3 of those songs (Westside Story, How We Do, Hate It or Love It) are your FIRST THREE SINGLES. Remove those songs, and where is his single? Put you on the game?
Come on, b.
As far as songwriting, once you have a topic and have written a hook– then yea, the writing the verses is the easiest part of the song. Without a topic your just stringing words together without focus, and without a hook, you have nothing that leaves an impression on the listener. Honestly, the most difficult part of song writing is developing a good hook, NOT writing a verse.
But I’ll let you tell it.
The Doctor’s Advocate thing is opinion- I never heard it, so I will make no judgement one way or another. All I know is, Jayceon performs half the damn songs off The Documentary and One Blood off TDA, so that shows you what he thinks about his own album.
And 50s song writing abilties just got him and Jeremih a 2x platinum and a #1 single, but once again, I’ll let you tell it.
Anyway, this whole argument is moot. Jayceon is a good rapper; he’s not a good song writer.
