Video: Naughty By Nature ft. Queen Latifah – God Is Us

Tuesday, January 19th, 2016

Where Jersey at? It’s a Flavor Unit reunion as Queen Latifah joins Naughty By Nature on “God Is Us,” which first appeared on the crew’s 2011 album Anthem Inc. It’s good to see Treach and Vinnie rocking together again.

Freddie Foxxx on The Combat Jack Show

The legendary Freddie Foxxx aka Bumpy Knuckles appeared on the The Combat Jack Show and shared a lot of unfiltered rap history. Freddie discussed meeting Chuck D during a time where his life was on the line for the culture, his relationship with Tupac, being down with the Paid In Full Posse (Eric B.), his battle-rapping past, what happened with Queen Latifah/Flavor Unit, getting blackballed by Steve Stoute, what business lessons he learned from being around Naughty by Nature/D.I.T.C., being around Nas during his beef with Jay-Z and of course, his most famous beatdown stories dispelled.

I’m probably forgetting a lot but the full 2 hours is worth the time.

Common Presents Just Wright Mixtape: Volume 1

Don’t get your hopes up, there’s no new Common on this mixtape. There actually isn’t anything Common on it. It’s just presented by Coporate Comm. Accompanied by this message he left on his blog:

Peace Ya’ll

This is straight up feel good music inspired by “Just Wright”. Enjoy!

Love,
Common

This tweet from earlier today reveals that he’s using the word mixtape in the 6th grader “I made you a mixtape” meaning of the word – not “the G.O.O.D. Music has arrived” kind of way.

Maybe it’s just me being impatient for The Believer, but some of us were expecting some new shit on this. It’s definitely a smart way to get the movie’s poster and release date on every urban hip hop blogs.

Tracklist and download link after the jump.
