J. Cole Mourns For Michael Brown In Tribute Song (LISTEN) PDF Print E-mail

A week after 18-year-old Michael Brown was fatally shot by Ferguson, Missouri, police officer Darren Wilson, people across the country are demanding justice, including a multitude of entertainers and other public figures. Roc Nation artist J. Cole is the latest to add his voice with a new track titled, "Be Free."
Backed by a news report with a sound bite from Dorian Johnson, Brown's friend and eyewitness to the shooting, the piano-driven ballad demands peace and calls for an end to gun violence.
In a statement, the 29-year-old Cole said he is "tired of being desensitized to the murder of black men."
There was a time in my life when I gave a fuck. Every chance I got I was screaming about it. I was younger. It's so easy to try to save the world when you're in college. You got nothing but time and no responsibility. But soon life hits you. No more dorms, no more meal plan, no more refund check. Nigga need a job. Nigga got rent. Got car note. Cable bill. Girlfriend moves in and becomes wife. Baby on the way. Career advances. Instagram is poppin. Lebron leaves Miami. LIFE HITS. We become distracted. We become numb. I became numb. But not anymore. That coulda been me, easily. It could have been my best friend. I'm tired of being desensitized to the murder of black men. I don't give a fuck if it's by police or peers. This shit is not normal. I made a song. This is how we feel.
Rest in Peace to Michael Brown and to every young black man murdered in America, whether by the hands of white or black. I pray that one day the world will be filled with peace and rid of injustice. Only then will we all Be Free.

He also founded Ruthless Records with N.W.A. star Eazy-E.

Straight Outta Compton' Gang-Style Shooting Was No Stunt PDF Print E-mail
Written by TMZ

The N.W.A. flick "Straight Outta Compton" just got christened with a drive-by shooting ... right in front of the movie crew.

Eyewitnesses tell TMZ ... the gunfire erupted outside the Compton Courthouse last week when some neighborhood guys, not actors, flashed gang signs at a passing car.


We're told the gunmen were NOT targeting the crew -- but since they were setting up outside the courthouse the bullets came dangerously close. One nearby civilian was hit, and collapsed next to the set ... but survived.


The L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. tells us the shooting is under investigation. They have not yet determined if it was gang-related.


We're told filming will continue this week in a rough area of Compton ... even though many members of the cast and crew are shaken, and worried about their safety.

Thug Life Army Exclusive - New book to allege Snoop Dogg’s cousin killed Tupac over stolen songs PDF Print E-mail
Written by Anton Batey ~ Thug Life Army

Did the late Tupac Shakur steal one of his greatest, most emotional songs? New book by filmmaker R.J. Bond will claim that a “confession letter” given to Fox 11 News host Chris Blatchford revealed that rapper Lil’ Half Dead (who’s real name is Donald Smith), who is the cousin of rapper Snoop Dogg, had the famous song Brenda’s Got A Baby stolen from him by Tupac Shakur in the summer of 1991, which lead to him killing the rapper in 1996.



This “confession letter” was given to Blatchford in June, 1998, and was written by a clinically diagnosed paranoid schizophrenic named Robert Anthony Soria, who is currently serving time in Sierra Prison for molesting a child. Soria was an informant of Blatchford at the time. Blatchford and his partner Daniel Leighton did little with the letter, with Leighton claiming that the letter was “nonsense”, and that “the informant was making claims that could not be substantiated”. Soria claimed that the three men involved in the killing was rapper Lil’ Half Dead, Malcolm Patton and Danny Patton. The informant claimed that Malcolm Patton shot at CEO of Death Row Records Suge Knight twice and missed, that Danny Patton’s gun jammed and that Lil’ Half Dead shot and killed Tupac.



According to Soria, the killing stemmed from Tupac Shakur stealing one of his greatest songs, Brenda’s Got A Baby, from Lil’ Half Dead, who gave it as a demo to Tupac in the summer of 1991. Note that there is no record of him rapping until 1993. Deon Evans, the producer and co-writer of Brenda’s Got A Baby, also completely dismissed this claim as ridiculous. Lil’ Half Dead worked with his cousin Snoop Dogg on his 1993 album Doggystyle on Death Row Records before signing to Priority Records in 1994. According to Soria, at some point in the future Lil’ Half Dead had a meeting with Tupac in Reno, Nevada which resulted in the violent beat-down of Half Dead. There has never been any evidence or mention of this the past 18+ years. Days later, he was supposedly chosen by Reggie Wright, Jr. to partake in the killing of Tupac and Suge Knight. The other two chosen were Soria’s neighbors, Danny and Malcolm Patton. It is interesting to note that Danny Patton was affiliated with the Leuders Park Piru Bloods while Half Dead was affiliated with the Long Beach Crips, a fact which makes Soria’s take that much more unreliable.



Soria claimed that Malcolm Patton decided to confess to being part of the murder out of remorse. According to Soria, Malcolm confessed, with Soria’s sister transcribing. Malcolm and his brother Danny were contacted recently regarding the contents of the letter, and not only refused to believe what they were being accused of, thought that they were recipients of a practical joke. After laughing it off a considerable amount of time, they revealed that Soria was the “crazy friend” who always told made-up stories to seem more interesting. They also revealed that he was mentally ill. Currently in prison for performing sexual acts with someone under the age of 14, court records indicate that Soria is also a clinically diagnosed paranoid schizophrenic, a claim substantiated by his ex-wife and other family members.





Filmmaker R.J. Bond got hold of this letter less than two years ago and has been using it in theatrical teasers as the truth regarding the murder of Tupac.

Mitt Romney's Secret Weapon: Clear Channel Radio PDF Print E-mail
Written by Frank M. Miranda

Conflict of interest? Checks and balances issue? Meaning of the phrase: 

"Counterbalancing influences by which an organization or system is regulated, typically those ensuring that power in political institutions is not concentrated in the hands of particular individuals or groups"
Beginning of Daily Kos article::::

In 2008, Bain Capital acquired Clear Channel Radio and 850 radio stations for $24 billion, and records show 14 of the company's directors have contributed more than $700,000 to Romney's campaigns. Romney left the firm in 1999, but still rakes in millions from his sizable share of Bain investments and pays 15 percent tax.

Romney's Bain Capital controls the board of directors of Clear Channel.  These are people who started giving to Romney in 1994. This is a social and economic network that is deeply involved in Clear Channel and tightly controlled. These are Romney's friends and allies going back to the very beginning of his political career.  And now they control Clear Channel Radio, America's largest and most powerful FM and AM radio station corporation.  It operates 850 radio stations and reaches 110 million Americans.

Clear Channel syndicates most conservative talk radio shows including Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck and Michael Savage.  And what about all that "free" advertising that Romney gets every day on hundreds of radio stations across the country on these talk shows?  What better way to control the message of conservative talk radio than to BUY it?  Rush Limbaugh was given a $400 million contract in 2008 when Bain Capital purchased Clear Channel.  He broadcasts on over 600 radio stations.  Sean Hannity is heard on over 500 stations by 13.5 million listeners.  Hannity also received a new and lucrative contract when Bain purchased Clear Channel in 2008.

It's quite a propaganda budget...but if Mitt Romney wins the White House it's worth it, right?

In a stunning article from Wayne Barrett of Newsweek and The Daily Beast from March 2012, Romney and Bain were outed as the money behind conservative talk radio.  Bain bought Clear Channel in 2008 then took over its board of directors with the goal of influencing public opinion during the presidential campaigns of 2008, 2012 and beyond.  With millions of dollars now being donated to the Romney campaign from Clear Channel, Americans should wonder just how much control Mitt Romney and Bain Capital have over conservative talk radio show hosts Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Glenn Beck.  These shows reach tens of millions of listeners every day.  Sean Hannity reaches even more viewers on his Fox News television show.

Conservative talk radio show hosts rely on Bain Capital for their livelihood.  That can't be good for fair and honest opinions on their shows.
