“Don’t Shoot Tha Messenger” G’sta x DJ Blaknifficent

Posted on

It’s been 10 years  since one of the  most deadliest and devastating hurricanes slammed into the Gulf Coast.

Hurricane Katrina claimed the lives of more that two thousand Americans and left city of New Orleans submerged in water. The world watched in disbelief and anger as this disaster was handled with total negligence and disregard for human life by city and government officials alike. 

“What started out as a natural disaster became a man-made one – a failure of government to look out for its own citizens.” – President Barack Obama 

DSTM In remembrance and reflection of this tragic time and current social events G’sta, a survivor of Hurricane Katrina, teamed up with long time friend and mentor Blaknifficent for the release of their collaboration “Don’t Shoot Tha Messenger”.

With the productivity in high gear G’sta has been making major moves preparing for this release on the 10 year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. He recently sat down with journalist Matteo Urella at Medium.com for a 4 part in depth interview . You can check out part 1 here.

Like New Orleans, G’sta is resilient and focused now more than ever. He continues to push the envelope and  grind for his family, his team and his city.

Be sure to check out “Don’t Shoot Tha Messenger” available in Apple Music store.

Be safe this weekend & remember those who were lost in Hurricane Katrina.

West Coast Hip-Hop, The Doctor is In!

Posted on

drdre

So the good doctor has finally emerged from his lab to bless us with some of that good West Coast remedy, the medicine we’ve been waiting on for over a decade! The album entitled Compton released a day early on Apple Music and early reviews are pretty positive. Dre came with some true blue heavy hitters like Snoop, Ice Cube, Xzibit and Eminem, but there are also some surprise additions like Kendrick Lamar and Marsha Ambrosius. Rounding out this long anticipated release are independent rapper King Mez and up and comers Asia Bryant, Paak, Jon Connor and Paaz to name a few.

The album is the accompanying soundtrack to the Straight Out of Compton movie slated to be released the second week in August. Although Dre fans had been waiting for over 16 years for him to drop the Detox album, (which never came out due to Dre’s dislike of it) hopefully this Compton album will  make up for the delay. Dr. Dre has expressed that this album is really important to him and that he was inspired by the filming of N.W.A’s story to make this album. West Coast fans and fans all over the world once again have bonafide West Coast hip-hop back in rotation and time will tell if Dre’s magic touch stands the test of time. This collaborative effort along with the upcoming movie will put L.A. back in the spotlight with the album royalties earned by Dre being donated to help fund a new performing arts center in the city of Compton.

Now that the music is out, it should be quite interesting to see how audiences respond to the N.W.A. film, I know I’ll be watching!

The FOH Minute. Current Events That Make You Say, “F*kOuttaHere” With That!

Posted on Updated on

Danny watts and company
See, what had happened was….

So, by now most of us have heard about the Django actress (who I can’t remember from the movie) Danièle Watts, who while with her white male partner, was recently detained by police in Studio City California for suspicion of public indecency and possibly prostitution . In light of all the recent backlash against people of color, this incident quickly became viral and had people talking from coast to coast. Now that the dust has settled somewhat and more information has become available, here are my “personal” thoughts on it, which I shared on my social media accounts…Please feel free to chime in with your own thoughts and opinions!

The bottom line in my opinion is they were being overly intimate in public and that is too much for some people and nothing anybody wants to see! They both look extremely suspect to me and I really feel like she is trying to get attention with this whole thing, which makes it difficult to legitimize real racist crimes. This is BS to me, because damn girl, you know you were out there riding the baloney pony, whether it was a dry humping or not, you could have just shown your damn ID and been on your raggedy ass way Ma’am! Nobody knew who you were and if this was your way of getting publicity, it was whack and wrong and now you are known for being publicly skanky! That was just too much in broad daylight with the door wide open on a busy public thoroughfare! What happened to parking garages and rooftops and dark side streets for hanky panky???? Naw, this was not about race, it was more about her non-factor ass being irresponsible and thinking her C list status would protect her. Just trifling!

Initially I was outraged on her behalf, but then when the audio and pictures emerged and that CNN interview popped up, I got a good hard look at BOTH of them, and I KNEW something wasn’t right in the water! It’s almost the equivalent of crying wolf and black society just cannot afford it! We have taken far too many hits for this chick to make a mockery of our struggle and abuse our collective pain with her shenanigans! It just pisses me off, nobody is here for that foolishness and she ought to be ashamed of herself not only as a female but as a black woman because we already have a heavy burden to bear with being shat on by the rest of society, while having our style and flavor and ASSES stolen from us! I am just not on TeamTooMuch with this chick, she can can catch the A-train to GTFOHVille as far as I am concerned because the damage has been done in a major way and there will be NO backpedaling allowed!!

And for the record, had this lady been a white woman, I would have felt the same way about her behavior and perhaps had I witnessed the alleged f*ckery, I would have thought she was a hooker too! The incident with this actress just takes away from a light being shined on real situations of racism and profiling. I have provided two links to what I consider a legitimate situation where black women are racially profiled as prostitutes.  Basically, she just could have handled it better from the gate and then taken action after the fact if she felt her rights were violated. This was just a ruse for publicity in my eyes and a despicable one at that! So, in the infamous words of our beloved Ice Cube, “Bye Felicia!”
