Thug Life Army
The Hip Hop World losses a Tupac Shakur Historian and founder of Thug Life Army (PRESS RELEASE} PDF Print E-mail

PALM SPRINGS, CA - 11/13/2017 (PRESS RELEASE JET) — Robert “RB” Riddle, the founder of Thug Life Army, the most popular website on all things Tupac Shakur, passed away on October 20, 2017 at the age of 64. It’s hard to imagine how a Caucasian man born in Cincinnati, Ohio who left his home state as a hippie to live in a cabin in the woods in Kentucky and becoming a Mennonite for many years would become the foremost authority on Tupac Shakur and his music.

 

While a Mennonite he lived with no telephone, televisions, or radios for many years. He eventually moved back to Ohio, where probably through his daughter’s computer, he discovered Tupac Shakur. Something in Tupac’s message connected with Riddle in a profound way so he put most of his time and energy from then on into keeping Tupac’s ideas and legacy alive. He also teamed up with CRNLive.com's studio (B) as its program director later developing Thug Life Army radio which spread the Gospel of Tupac Shakur to an even larger audience.

 

"Anyone that knew Robert held him in very high esteem for his relentless dedication to helping unsigned artist get a break. This was his objective all along. He will be missed greatly as he served as a mentor to many including myself. - Frank M. Miranda President/CEO

Former N.W.A Manager Jerry Heller Dies At 75 PDF Print E-mail

Jerry Heller, the Ruthless Records co-founder and one-time manager to N.W.A, has passed away at the age of 75, according to social media posts from those who knew him.

 

TMZ is reporting that Heller had a medical emergency while driving in Ventura County, California on Friday morning. He reportedly collided with another vehicle and was brought to the hospital. The publication hasn’t confirmed whether Heller’s death was caused by the medical emergency or the crash.

 

Born in 1940 and growing up in Cleveland, Heller eventually went on to work with some of the biggest names in music in the ’60s and ’70s, including Journey, Marvin Gaye and Pink Floyd. In the ’80s, he became instrumental in bringing West Coast rap music to prominence, co-founding Ruthless Records with Eazy-E and managing N.W.A for several years.

 

Together they released Straight Outta Compton in 1988, a triple-platinum record that changed the course of Hip Hop and that is widely considered by critics as one of the greatest albums of all time.

 

The group parted ways in 1991, with Ice Cube and Dr. Dre blaming Heller for splitting them up over bad business and exploitation. Cube went on to release “No Vaseline,” a scathing diss track aimed at Heller and the rest of the group, scolding Eazy-E for having “a white Jew tellin’ you what to do.”

 

The film version of the group’s story was a major hit in theaters last year, grossing more than $200 million worldwide. It also led to Heller filing a $110-million lawsuit against the filmmakers over his depiction in the movie, which he said was inaccurate in places and lifted without permission from his memoir in others.

Ice Cube Accuses Hillary Clinton Of Waging War On Black People PDF Print E-mail

Rapper and filmmaker Ice Cube has accused Hillary Clinton and her supporters of waging a war against black people, saying that her comments in 1996 helped to encourage police brutality against black people which then gave rise to the Black Lives Matter movement.

In an interview with Bloomberg, Ice Cube said, “To call your own citizens ‘Superpredators’ is pretty harsh and a pretty big indictment. It’s really not solving the problem, it’s just making it worse. Now the authorities feel like their justified in how they treat these so-called ‘Superpredators.’”

Ice Cube was referring to Hillary Clinton’s 1996 comments where she said America needs to bring “no conscience, no empathy, superpredator gangs of kids to their heels.” Hillary was rallying support for President Bill Clinton’s violent crime legislation, laws that Ice Cube says caused more harm than good.

“The L.A.P.D. did a war on gangs,” Cube said. “But if I’m a black kid that’s not in a gang but I look like a gang member to this white officer, than it’s a war on me.”

Rich Homie Quan is pleading for forgiveness after his Biggie disaster during the VH1 "Hip Hop Honors."

The rapper says, "I assure you that I never intended to disrespect Biggie Smalls. I have long respected his work and his contribution to the rap game."

RHQ poured his heart in the Instagram apology adding ... "I will forever be sorry to New York, my fans, Biggie Smalls, Lil Kim, and all the Hip Hop community for my performance. I hope you can accept my apology."

 

As for what exactly went wrong when he forgot Biggie's lyrics in "Get Money" ... he said it was a combination of nerves and technical difficulties.

And for the record ... Faith's already forgiven him.
