The Sights and Sounds

Kendrick Lamar reflected on the good memories he shared with the late Mac Miller on Peter Rosenberg’s Open Late show. Revealing what kind of person he was to the people, Kendrick shared his personal feelings live on air.

Kendrick Lamar on Mac Miller:

“If I could remember anything about the homie … just the fact that he was a funny, funny individual … That’s the type of person he was — just a good dude. Always made you feel good, just a great energy to have around,” Kendrick Lamar says, having collaborated with Mac Miller on a few different occasions. “He’ll pull up to the studio, give honest opinions. I’d play music, he’d say, ‘I like that. You should do something right here.’ Just whatever, man, and he was just true and selfless about it. Great musician. Great writer.”

“Always made you feel good, just a great energy to have around.” – Kendrick Lamar

“No matter what he was going through, he didn’t make you feel sorry for him, you know? He was strong about it — always kept a smile on his face because he wanted you to smile, too,” he explained. “That’s just something I always loved, you know, no matter whatever personal issues, he gave you that energy. It wasn’t no misery loves company with him … He showed a smile and then you gave that smile right back, it made you feel good. So forever we’re gonna remember the life and we’re gonna remember that smile.”

Mac Miller was a busy man having worked with other TDE superstars like Ab-Soul and ScHoolboy Q, having shown a close relationship with the entire crew.

Kendrick begins talking about his feelings around the 5:09 mark.

Lanez Declare War Against Joyner Lucas With “Lucky You Freestyle”

Lanes Vs. Lucas
Whoever thought that Tory Lanez was light when it came to the flow.. you are sadly mistaken!!!

The singer/rapper started an uproar earlier this week when he stated that he could hold his own against rappers like Kendrick Lamar, J.Cole, and Joyner Lucas. It didn’t take too long for Joyner Lucas to speak his mind and officially give Joyner Lucas an official rap challenge.

If you know Tory, he never had an issue with providing that he has the juice when it comes to his musical ability. Less than 24 hours later and Tory Lanez dropped the “Lucky You Freestyle”. From the opening to the end of the freestyle Lanez bought the fire and didn’t ease up at any point. The original song is featured on Eminem’s Kamikaze along with Joyner Lucas.

“Is he really that bad that I gotta hit him with a bigger gat/Matter of fact riddle me that/I’m literally at the spot that he said he’d be at, but where is he at?”

We’re not sure where this is heading, but don’t expect Lanez to back down any time soon. The confident multi-talented artist knew he had to back up his original statement regarding Joyner.

“The Joyner kid? He’s nice, but he can’t fuck with me,” Lanez said. “Not on no level, period.”

Lucas replied with, “@torylanez if your so confident my guy, let’s pick a beat. you spit your hardest bars over it and [I’ll] do the same. [We’ll] let the people decide who ain’t fucking with who. Then we will pick a date and time and you present your version and I’m present my version. Same exact beat so it’s fair.

“If your not willing to step up and accept my proposal then don’t ever say no silly shit like ‘bar for bar Joyner Lucas ain’t fucking with me’ ever again in your life. tag the comedian @torylanez I love the confidence but stop it bro.”

We’ll be watching from afar, but certainly ready to give our input at a moment’s notice.

Big Heath Releases a New Visual Effort For His Single “Plan”

Published

A rapper hailing not from an inner city, but rather the quiet suburbia of Cambridge, BiG HEATH is not only comfortable with being different, but he embraces it, delivering rhymes that veer from the well-trodden ground of the ‘road’.

Having first started rapping at the age of 10 – when he realized it helped him overcome his stutter – BiG HEATH got his first break as an artist in 2017 when he was booked for notable support slots with Nas and Freddie Gibbs.

It was his live performance at Nas’ show in Liverpool that caught the attention of DJ Semtex, and by early 2018 BiG HEATH’s self-released single‘SWiTCH SiDES’ was on heavy rotation at BBC 1Xtra.  Plaudits from the likes of Rag ‘n’ Bone Man and Tinie Tempah followed, with critics earmarking him as the “next one up” who is showcasing a different side to the UK Rap scene.
