Drake Vs Pusha T: Are Fans Taking Rap Beefs Too Seriously?

Published

on

Rivalries and beefs are a longstanding tradition in hip hop, from b-boys and b-girls battling it out in dance to rappers trading lyrical barbs, live or via diss tracks. But fans taking an artistic battle from a performance space into the real world is rare and surprising, according to hip-hop writer A. Harmony.

“Battle rap is a fixture in hip hop. It’s considered a sport. It’s considered a form of entertainment and a chance for MCs to really showcase their skills. It’s a part of the music industry. It’s a part of the music culture,” explained Harmony, hip hop contributor to Exclaim Magazine.

But a full-on brawl ensued at a Pusha T concert in Toronto on Tuesday, after some audience members apparently tossed drinks onstage at the American rapper — who has been embroiled in an on-again, off-again beef with hometown favourite Drake — mid-performance. Briefly retaking the stage, the Virginia rapper seemed to accuse Drake of being behind the slight. The concert was closed down shortly after. Later, a concertgoer turned up at a nearby hospital with stab wounds, according to police.

The drinks being tossed might have been something “between concertgoers that got out of hand,” said Harmony. It might also have been the result of fans “who decided to take this form of entertainment and turn it into something it wasn’t.”

In recent years, there has been a noticeable rise in young music fans lashing out at rivals for perceived slights to their idols, whether its Beliebers rallying behind Justin Bieber or the BeyHive lashing out in support of Beyoncé.

“We have seen instances of super fans kind of crossing the line,” Harmony noted, citing an instance this July when Nicki Minaj fans waged a brutal campaign against a Canadian freelance writer who offered a negative critique of the rapper’s music.

Different kind of connection
Today’s fans aren’t like those of previous generations. They feel a different, closer connection to their idols thanks to social media — and that goes for rap aficionados as well, according to Emmanuel Tabi, a hip-hop fan and University of Toronto PhD candidate examining cultural production and its intersection with education and activism.

Because entertainers frequently tackle their personal problems with their art or in interviews and share seemingly real, but carefully cultivated personas on Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook and beyond, “you might feel like you actually know Drake,” Tabi said.

How far can you go to achieve your dream? Whats the extreme? Humans are mostly driven but passion to keep doing things they love doing. Personally we would all have a reason to why we just can’t give up on certain things.

Over the weekend I met this young man who was selling hardcopies of his works which happens to be his new Extended Playlist (EP) titled “This Is Nothing For The Radio”. Odd title for an album right? Yeah. As curious as I was decided to buy a copy and listen to as to why he decided to choose this title.

Surprisingly the tracks on the album were better than what we mostly hear on our radio. So I asked him why he chose the title “This Is Nothing For The Radio”. According to him, he is motivated by facts and wanted to create music that would stand the test of time and not a tape that would be played a couple of times on the radio and then forgotten about.

He Goes by the name Jo’ Wayne which was derived from his real name Jonathan Elorm Wayne. Let me tell you something that would interest you as well, Jo’ Wayne is a level 600 Doctor of Laboratory Medicine, a student at the University of Development Studies and is also an alumnus of the University of Cape Coast.

Aside Singing Dr Elorm Wayne is also surprisingly good at producing music, mixing and mastering as well. Now why would a doctor spend more time in music? He said “I see the making of music as some sort of therapy because it is something i can always run to whenever I need to escape stress.
He continued saying it is an avenue for me to extend messages being given to him by my inner voices to the world.

Later that night I decided to dig into his profile and it turned out he started doing music before 2012. Wow. How was he doing it? Well, I didn’t get the chance to ask him, but I can say he loves what he does, and after listening to his album, he’s just perfect at it. CurrentIy I haven’t been able to choose a favourite, they are all Lit, you would have to check the album. “Win” puts my emotions on a rollercoaster.

Guys you seriously have to check this Album
You can request for the hardcopy via (+233 54 896 1557) or are get it digitally on iTunes.

Tekashi 6ix9ine Built A Career Out Of Controversy; Now It May Destroy Him And We Hope Shatta Wale Learns From This

Published

Tekashi 6ix9ine

The bizarre rise and spectacular fall of 22-year-old rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine would be cinematic if it were not so dire. The Brooklyn native, born Daniel Herhandez, faces 32 years to life in prison following his arrest on racketeering and firearms charges along with other members of New York’s 9 Trey Bloods gang, with whom he is affiliated. Last Friday, 6ix9ine announced via Instagram that he had canceled his American tour and fired his entire team, including several fellow gang members; on Monday, the Daily Beast reported that these ex-associates planned to “super-violate” him before the Feds made their arrests. The rapper captioned his Instagram post, “WATCH IT ALL CRUMBLE.”

In retrospect, perhaps this was the inevitable conclusion to 6ix9ine’s story all along. He rose to prominence by cultivating a uniquely absurd image, courting physical and sexual violence, and circumventing the music industry’s traditional gatekeepers. As the rapper’s legal troubles mounted, his stardom grew; by the time he began scoring chart hits and collaborating with superstar artists, the music felt secondary. But the same controversy that rocketed 6ix9ine into the mainstream may be the thing that dooms his career—and, if he is convicted, effectively ends his life as he knows it.

6ix9ine’s brief but volcanic career began, appropriately enough, with a meme. A rainbow-haired miscreant with Skittle teeth and a giant “69” tattooed across his forehead exemplified the changing state of hip-hop in 2017. The rapper harnessed this viral fame to push his first single, “Gummo,” to No. 12 on the Billboard Hot 100 that same year. The song’s minimalist, hyper-distorted beat and bloodthirsty raps epitomized the burgeoning “SoundCloud rap” scene, and 6ix9ine helped cement the subgenre’s mainstream viability alongside other young, controversial artists, such as the late XXXTentacion.

But as “Gummo” elevated 6ix9ine’s profile, it also brought his past offenses to light. In 2015, the then-18-year-old Hernandez pleaded guilty to the use of a child in a sexual performance. The rapper accepted a plea deal in which he agreed, among other things, to obtain his GED and “not commit any crime or violation during the two-year adjournment.” 6ix9ine violated these terms, and a sentencing was scheduled for early 2018.

This sentencing was first postponed from January to April, and later from April to October. In the meantime, 6ix9ine’s career continued to flourish. His debut mixtape, Day69: Graduation Day, debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 upon its release in February. In July, the rapper scored his biggest Hot 100 hit to date with his Nicki Minaj collaboration “Fefe,” which peaked at No. 3 and was certified double platinum. In less than a year, 6ix9ine went from a viral internet sensation to collaborating with the likes of Minaj and Kanye West, and was scheduled to open Minaj and Future’s NickiHndrxx Tour before it got canceled.
