New York-born rapper Saigon hasn't always had good luck in releasing his music to the world, but has yet to somehow remain relevant in hip-hop circles with an endless string of controversy that seems to follow him. This time, he does it again, resurfacing as one of the new castmembers of VH1's 'Love & Hip Hop: New York' season 4.
The year was 1993. Hip-hop, only about 20 years old, was dipped in gold. It had reached around the world, a long journey from its origins as a culture created by the improvising youth of New York City. On Nov. 9, A Tribe Called Quest -- Q-Tip, Phife Dawg and Ali Shaheed Muhammad (by this point original member Jarobi had become the "sometimes 'Y'") -- delivered their third studio album, 'Midnight Marauders,’ a defining moment in rap's Golden Era.
Peter Gunz continues to hide his wife Amina from the world. But she isn't going to be kept a secret for long and tells Rich Dollaz about their nuptials. An outraged Peter finds out and her plan backfires. “Don’t tell nobody we’re married,” he demands. Aren't side chicks a secret, not wives? These seem to be new rules he's following.
As 2013 comes to a close within the next two months, there's one word to describe the year in music: thrilling. There are a few rappers and singers who want to stick with that theme once they release their new albums next month. The December projects consist of names we already know and love.
We've all heard the stories about artists making it big and then going broke, turning to reality TV shows and taking other desperate measure to replenish their lost money. However, there are a few music tycoons who found ways to turn a few hit songs into multi-million dollar machines by delving into fashion, cosmetics, technology and other industries.
There's no doubt hip-hop's major talents have big money in their wallets, but we don't always get to hear about their big hearts. Often cast in a showy light with the latest jewelry, foreign cars, clothes and eye candy by their side, their good deeds sometimes go unnoticed -- especially when arrests and beef are always grabbing headlines.
Hip-hop's biggest crews gathered for the 2013 BET Hip Hop Awards, which aired on Tuesday (Oct. 15) night. The event, hosted by the Cali O.G. Snoop Lion -- a.k.a. Uncle Snoop -- is an annual celebration of the biggest and brightest stars in the rap game today and also tips a hat to the rappers of the past who have paved the way.
