There's something here for everyone, even the classical music lovers. Wherever they are.
Phife Dawg, a member of the rap group A Tribe Called Quest recently passed away at age 45. This reporter was clearly a fan, the video description reads:
Mic drop! WSB-TVs Mark Arum and Fred Blankenship paid tribute to the late A Tribe Called Quest rapper Phife Dawg this morning by brilliantly inserting lyrics into the traffic report.
He does a great job sneaking it under the radar to include it in his report but his skills are undeniable.
It looks like "suspicious" rap battlers are on the loose in Charlton, Massachusetts. The local police department posted this bulletin, warning residents of mysterious strangers that might shout "Rap lingo" at them. Obviously, a lot of Facebook commenters did not take this notice very seriously:
Not everyone disagreed with the police's stance on this, and they initially responded to criticism with a little more information to justify the a post about the incident.
They also updated later to add some context to the post.
Rap music is safe... for now, just keep your rap battles out of Charlton.
In their continuing effort to education America on the history of hip hop, Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake performed their sixth lecture/performance Sept. 9.
They turned the Tonight Show stage into a regular adult education center as they ran through a large gamut of new and old music, backed by the fantastic sounds of The Roots.
And it's a hit! They land an eclectic and wildly entertaining bunch of songs. The thing never unravels, though it was close when Fallon reveals his Compton beginnings.
It's a continuation on a long-running series the two have performed beginning back when Fallon hosted Late Night. Unfortunately, NBC doesn't want anyone seeing those other lessons and has removed the videos from YouTube.
However, Spin has chronicled all the songs featured in the previous installments.
Nancy Grace is not a fan of legalizing weed, and she had rapper 2 Chainz on her show Tuesday night in an epic debate about it called "#Pot2Blame".
The host tried and failed to convince him that changing the law would turn all children into pot smoking fiends, using a few videos of parents forcing their kids to smoke as an example.
"Some people actually love their child," he said. "Some people know that this is obviously wrong, so this is nothing to really argue about. These people are imbeciles. You can't use this case to define a whole community."
2 Chainz, whose real name is Tauheed Epps, came off as the calm, collected one and Nancy Grace probably should have taken a few hits herself before the interview to calm down. He argued that everyone can pretty much get weed if they want already, and that legalizing it would help with certain issues like the overcrowding of prisons and wasted tax dollars.
"We're in a deficit. We've got to find ways of getting out," he said. "If we got half of the states legalizing pot, if the rest of the community legalizes pot that frees up taxpayers money, that'll allow us to do something with this extra with these funds from fixing potholes in the street to building stadiums. I'm down with it."
Another great moment was when she read some of his lyrics to question his position as a role model for kids.
"'Smoking California weed with California whores' — excuse me, 'true.' I left that out," said Grace.
"Truuuue!" replied 2 Chainz.
He politely thanked her on his Twitter account afterwards and teased another debate that we hope will happen very soon.
Yup, Harry Potter can rap. The good part starts a little after 2 minutes in the video.
In a surprise move, further distancing himself from his boy wizard persona, Daniel Radcliffe, skillfully performed Blackalicious' "Alphabet Aerobics" on The Tonight Show Tuesday night.
Radcliffe says he was initially really into learning Eminem lyrics, and calls his fascination with memorizing fast paced rap songs "a disease."
But what does Ron Weasley think?
That would be Dappy, showing off his hashtag tattoo (hashtat?) in a selfie he recently shared. He picked up the ink to be "trending forever," though nothing Dappy-related has popped up on Twitter's list of hot topics.
The best part? Dappy is best known for his song "No Regrets." We'll see how that turns out.
Are you a person who really enjoys rap music but might just enjoy it a little bit more if certain lyrics were a little less angry and misogynistic and a little more forward-thinking and polite? Well, Respectful Rappers has done just that by morphing degrading, negative lyrics into more positive versions.
