On Friday, Hyphy Era rapper Balance dropped a new hit on SoundCloud featuring HBK’s Skipper, and Bay Area Rap veteran Beeda Weeda called “Hella”.
To be completely honest, I’m a little disappointed at how long it took for someone to make a song called “Hella”.
Oh well. #YoungCalifornia. Peep the record below.
In what may be one of thee most intense ads I’ve seen a very long time, Adidas promos a new Soccer line, and turns up the intensity with the help of Mr. Intense, himself, KanYe West. Peep the ad below, which features the a preview of Yeezy’s marching-percussion-heavy record “God Level”.
Sacramento veteran C Plus has been making a lot of noise in Sacramento since about 2009. He’s formerly a member of the Sacramento staple collective known at The Neighborhood Watch, as part of the rap foursome State Cap. When both groups disbanded, C Plus continued a solo career, and has since been featured on countless Hip Hop blogs, and is a household name in Sacramento Hip Hop. He was featured in numerous Team Backpack cyphers, and is currently working on his third album.
Over the past year or so, word has gotten out that Plus has been spending time with renowned Hip Hop producer Ski Beatz. As Talib Kweli once stated at his concerts, “Ski Beatz is your favorite sh*t and you ain’t even know it.” Referring to the fact that Ski has produced some of the most memorable records in Hip Hop. His most popular productions include Jay-Z’s “Dead Presidents II” and Camp Lo’s “Luchini”.
When news of a Sacramento front-runner was working with Ski Beatz, the local loyals were excited. And to make matters better, the duo has continued to drop visuals to the records that have resulted from their sessions. Earlier this week, they released the video for “Build or Destroy”. Check it out below.

Thursday, on BET’s 106th & Park, Tyler, The Creator, and the rest of the infamous Loiter Squad boys of Odd Future stepped on stage to play a game that Bow Wow called “Marry, Kiss, or Diss”. The boys of OFWGKTA came out dressed in full on “Rapper-Persona” attire, in an effort to make fun of the fact that BET does not play their music. They were taking shots at commercial Hip Hop in doing so.
Anyway! During the game of “Marry, Kiss, or Diss”, Iggy Azalea was thrown into the question–to which Tyler said (in his “Rap-Persona” voice, I should add), “I ‘ont want Iggy. She stink. She got shots in her dump. I want real booty, ya feel me?”
Late Thursday night, Iggy replied on Twitter by tweeting:
“Tyler the creator is beyond immature. I’ve always believed you had something more to offer the world, Shame to see you be so rude.”
“People that make enemies and talk shit about ppl they’ve never even said hi to trip me out. I see it all the time… Strange world.”
The question is: Can this really be taken seriously? The entire appearance by Odd Future seemed to be a joke in itself. Fader even did an article where they went behind the scene of OF getting “Swaggy” for the show. My personal opinion–Iggy needs to look behind the scenes to see what this whole thing was about. I get that the joke was at her expense, but c’mon… Sometimes, you have to see the fun in it all…
