LIL WAYNE , JAY-Z TIDBITS

 

Rapper Lil Wayne will host the Fader magazine's summer-music-issue party Tuesday at Spiegelworld in New York. DJ Cipha Sounds, the Fixxers and Bonde Do Role are set to perform. ...

 

Jay-Z and Nas have contributed to a new book by black culture critic Dr. Michael Eric Dyson, who was hired this summer as a professor at Georgetown University in Washington D.C.  Dyson’s book, titled “Know What I Mean? Reflections On Hip Hop,” examines the use of politics and gender in rap. Rapper-turned-label exec Jay-Z writes the introduction, while Nas handles the afterward.

 

“He has shown those doubters and critics that hip hop is a vital arts movement created by young working-class men and women of color,” wrote Jigga in the introduction. “Yes, our rhymes can contain violence and hatred. Yes, our songs can detail the drug business and our choruses can bounce with lustful intent. However, those things did not spring from inferior imaginations or deficient morals; these things came from our lives. They came from America."
