Mr Vegas Explains His Feelings on Drake

Mr Vegas Explains His Feelings On Drake Hot97 

Let me paint a picture for you
The year is 1985.
Michael Jackson is the biggest star on the planet. Not just the biggest star the planet has ever seen. He puts out a song that has a vibe from this new emerging stye of music with its own culture called Hip hop coming out of a small market in NYC. 

In all his interviews Michael say in his soft MJ voice.
You know..
I really love hip hop...
Its just... so wonderful and delightful
No no really its amazing 
I just adore the culture the style of dress and the music 
That's why I had to incorporate it into my music and music videos and work with the artist 
They're so talented
I just I love it!

But when you look at Mikes records Quincy Jones receives credit the song with let's say Madonna she gets credit and so on. Yet He does 3 tracks with hip hop artists ( of the culture he claims to love so much) yet none of them get credit.
That's a little more than fucked up. Its the very definition of a culture vulture.

Let's take this a step further one could say well you know Mike is black and that Hip hip even thought it was coming out of a small market mainly the black community of NYC. Mike is black an it's black American music. This only further's my point. Let's level this out
Same year same situation the artist is now Madonna
Now we're talking about appropriation
Like "Miley Was Good" 
Like the same shit Iggy A takes for doing hip hop which now has become the Popular music of not just the US but the entire globe so Arguments could be made that they are hip hop and they have every right to participate. And how would Miley Cyrus look not crediting the Hip Hop artists she works with like Juicy J etc. CRAZY
The irony is that the same people criticizing Iggy for cultural appropriation are giving Drake a pass
But Drakes Black you say...
He's not Jamaican and he's not a part of the culture so in this case that singing Cultural appropriating Canadian bitch is Madonna.

+NileValleyDreams Writes
Mr. Vegas has issues with the fact that Drake is professing his love for dancehall and the reggae culture, he sampled several dancehall/reggae artistes and did not give them any credit.  
Whilst, he sampled artistes from other genres and gave them credit.  Hence, Mr. Vegas is contending that Drake is hypocritical, opportunistic and exploitative...

+Tony Wills Writes 
salute to mr vegas he it kept 100 from start to finish, ebro wasn't tryna hear it. Yanks been using music styles from Jamaica dance hall scene and uk's grime scene for years and now that its being brought up (because social media proving ya'll takin our styles) yanks get sensitive. We know u created rap and we honor it but dont deny that american rap hasn't  been influenced by other cultures drastically in recent years.

Response to:
+Tony Wills 
I was with you till got to Grime...
1. Hip hop is a direct descendent of Dance Hall Period (Agreed)
2. Dance hall has been sampled and used in all forms of American music (Agreed)
3. Hip Hop in general has always been influenced by other cultures particularly the ones that embrace it. All you have to do is look at how hip hop has change as it moved across the US and into other parts of the world. 

Peep the time line:
"Slick Rick" ( Nov 1988) "Monie Love" (October 30, 1990) Cypress Hill (1991) "Big Pun" (April 28, 1998)
 "Eminem" (1999) "Diams" (2003) "Plan B" (2005) "Die Antwoord" (2007) 
[Not bad that was off the top of my head had to google the years but chronology is correct]

Shit even Drake (2006) is a result of hip hops global/ cultural expansion. There have been singer rappers before but one might look at an artist such as LAUREN HILL (1996,1998), Plan B, Diams, NELLY (2000) and say hey was Drake influenced? We Know he likes to byte Styles. Rule #2in hip hop after Rule #1 Write your own shit! Irony, he's not a Yank as  +TonyWillz puts it.

4. Grime is a sub genre of hip hop and like Hip Hop has indeed been used in other forms of music (agreed)
But to say that US Hip hop is stealing "taking our styles"  when all your styles are derivative 
You cant claim I'm in your lane when you're driving on my Highway
Hip Hop exists with out grime but Grime can't exist with out Hip Hop.

Inevitably some fuckboy fan boy will attempt to come for  me saying I'm shitting on grime which is not the case so...
This is the part when I have to say NO SHADE TO GRIME I'm not Azealia Banks. This is just some history and thoughts and  Facts.

If you don't know who 95% of the artist mentioned are you don't have the right to comment. Please submit your hip hop card for destruction.

Nicki Minaj Vs Safaree: Safaree Sues Nicki Minaj After Meek Mill's Birthday

Nicky V Safari
No One Knows What Goes On Behind Closed Doors
I love how people are picking sides and going in on each other when
1. No one really knows what the law suit states or is about
2. No one really knows what their relationship was like

What we do know
1. She's a mad aggressive chick
2. There are multiple videos posted by her on youtube right now where she all but punches him in his face....and that's just the shit she put out...
3. She didn't claim their relationship for 10+yrs but dropped him to get with what the youtube comments are referring to as
"The L King" He never once tried to tarnish her name and he TOTALLY could have yet some how he's "unloyal" (some of y'all need to brush up on your English) Disloyal.
4. You can't go at a chick for verbal/ physical abuse and have a rap career. If a woman beats on a man cuts and scratches etc some how that's ok but #DoubleStandards
5. What's that line She has about coming at you with a knife?
Stans help a brother out
6. If he was gonna sue her he should have done this already.... #TooLateGang
7. Love and Hip Hop loves to stir the drama pot so this might be a part of that
8. None of this is confirmed so for now it's all rumors

Funny thing I had an uncle (asshole) he always said...
9. There's two sides to every story.
He has a younger brother.... He always said
10. Theres 3 sides to a story
Yours, Mine & The Truth.
These kids are going at it like they actually know the truth.#SMH

"No single food macro nutrient is responsible for poor health"...That's pretty accurate.
He's talking about VG (he who shall not be named) and people who ride bicycles are skinny and talk crap about others (as you said)
This is literally the very first Vegan Fitness Youtuber I've seen who wasn't exactly as Kinobody described
For about two years now I have been looking for information on Vegan bodybuilding and eating in general. The aforementioned as well as some other vegans of the same disposition were the only ones I came across. Unfortunately, instead of finding helpful information in the from of tips tricks recipes etc, all I found was obsessive hate speech about other youtubers and condescending rants about inhumane meat eaters and animal rights. All of which is ok to a degree but not what I was looking for and not exactly the best way to win people over to your cause. People love drama so they tune in for the drama then they leave. Other than that you're preaching to the choir and those that might benefit from your message get turned off and tune out.

Well done on this video Sir.

Spectacular 20ft Off-The-Grid Tiny Shipping Container House

Spectacular 40ft Small Shipping Container Home

Collider News: ‘Star Trek’ TV Series Filming Dates & Location Revealed

This CBS cash grab is going to sink what will probably be an awesome show. Yes a lot of fans will pay for the extra service but will that really be enough for them to justify continuing it's existence? Sadly i think not. Look forward to it being canceled "due to lack of interest/ ratings" The real reason will be no one uses CBS's streaming service, no one will know about it and only about half of those that do will be willing to cough up the cash for yet another streaming service ...one no-one really wants anyway.

Iggy Azalea Thinks Beyoncé's "Becky" Line From 'Lemonade' Is Racist

Becky is a "stereotypical white girls" name this is true Becky is usually a name associated with a white girl of means and status or a Valley girl. Now this may be a stereo type but it's not one created by or used exclusively by blacks and certainly not a racial slur. It was created and perpetuated by Hollywood & the American media which the last time I checked was not controlled by blacks. #OscarsSoWhite #Again The (black written) TV Show Empire goes as far as to play with this stereo type by naming the very dark skinned blonde weaved Gabourey Side's character proclaims "what? My mom's white" in response to her name being Becky.
Using Becky is hardly then same as Shaynaynay, Saynaynay is a horrible characature of ghetto girl stereotypes like Catherine Tates Lauren or Little Britain's Vicky Pollard (who are white) youtube them you can thank me later. Furthermore, Becky was not targeted at anyone specific or any group, it was used to describe an unknown character who may very well be fictitious.
This comes down to context & knowledge of cultural vernacular. "You better call that white bitch you been fucking" is racially insensitive for sure but even the context affords it some slack and is not a reversible situation. You don't see a lot of white girls going to the extreme to meet the standard of beauty as say a Lil Kim who stated "I'm insecure...every man I've been with has cheated on me with women who have more European features" She was always made to feel not good enough. Notorious BIG longtime friend and lover dropped her to marry Faith "Becky with the good hair" Evans a fare skinned black woman with more European features whom he hardly knew. Look at her now Literally the same weekend Lemonade drops so does Kim's new look. This is why the situation doesn't work in reverse and complaining Becky is offensive, even if is, is petty. The term describes a woman of affluence who is recognized as the GLOBAL STANDARD OF BEAUTY. There's a huge difference between that and referring to someone as the most ratchet character one can think of.
...The irony is thats lost here is Becky is probably NOT a white girl
Black people do not refer to white people as having "good hair" they refer to mixed race/ native american/ east indians. "Good hair" is reserved for people of mixed heritage. "Oh you got good hair, you got indian in yo family?' The term actually implies a softer textured black hair.
Another interesting thing of note is Iggy has never had a problem with this before Beyonce's use when hip hop the field she's constantly being accused of misappropriating has used the term for literally decades. Not only in the song flashed here but that very song including that line was sampled not too long ago by Niki Minaj. If she truly had a problem why is this the first time we're hearing about it. Could it be that she has a new project out?

The Amazing Art of Akihito

Fans stunned by Lil' Kim's new look~ Your F*kn White You have no MELANIN...

"More blonde"..? Uh No. Like this is the first time Kim has done blonde and hello roots?
"Making her hair lighter" are you serious? With all the shit she's done to her self you've gonna come for her hair The woman who has worn literally every single color in the rainbow hair and damn near all of them in a single video

Why does every one feel so bad for Kim? Does she not look happy is it NOT HER LIFE to live and or fuck up? Or are people just upset that she's not what they want her to be. When people tell you who they are in life you need to listen.

It boggles my mind that people can't tell
5:55 these are different times of day different make up different lighting
6:24 the pic of kim next to Mariah Carey she's only a few shades lighter this photograph is from the 90s Yea take a good look. Kim latest selfie is in a white room and obviously is using some sort of ring flash/ beauty dish/
Note there are no shadows and most every thing is blown out
Who compares a pic of a 41 year old who has been known to have some work done to their 17/18 year old self
I'm starting to wonder who's really the sick ones here
I don't get the surprise there are pics of kim straight up looking like the cat lady ....too much work leads to more work.... yet the discussion has never been about her shifting features or the numerous surgeries or the alleged body sculpting it's about a shitty not very well lit pic from over 20 years ago as compared to what's clearly an over lit photo with makeup that's much lighter
Where's the reason?
