If you haven’t been paying attention to these rappers in resent news well then you better start. Their beef” has reached new heights in the past week when Lil Kim released her Black Friday video. This track Black Friday is dedicated solely to making Nicki Minaj look bad and insists on bringing Nicki down. This video even has a Nicki Minaj clone that is attempting to replicate Lil Kim. The clone references classic Kim videos like “Crush On You,” off Lil Kim’s debut album Hard Core.
So far through this beef Nicki Minaj has been mature through out the whole thing. She only responded with a couple of giggles over twitter and a few punch lines in a few songs but has not made a whole song dedicated to the dissing of Lil Kim.
This behavior is historically typical of Lil Kim. Kim has had beef with other artists, most notably Foxy Brown, with whom she never reconciled. In the end this whole beef is doing more Lil Kim’s career more than anything because before this beef occurred, Lil Kim hadn’t released any music in years.
This is the Black Friday Video Lil Kim released.

In the world of Hip Hop there is always a new craze. More recently there has been a website that has caught a lot of buzz claiming to be the spark that hip hop has been needing. This website is called WorldStarHipHop.com. WordStarHipHop is a very popular video site, but is WorldStarHipHop really all about Hip Hop. WorldSTarHipHop.com started out as a video site where people could watch videos of different things that were going on in the hip hop industry like video releases, interviews, etc. Today WorldStarHiphop has street fight videos, videos promoting sex tapes, and other numerous videos that have nothing to do with hip hop, putting hip hop into a bad light.
The maker of WorldStarHipHop Lee Quinn O’Denat says, “I try to portray the good, the bad and the ugly – that’s what I try to portray. It’s not just good, good, good. Hip Hop is a culture – a lifestyle. It’s not just a Black thing or an inner-city thing. It’s for anyone that can feel it in’em. It’s Hip Hop. It’s just swag.” I have to say that I don’t agree. Even thought videos of fights and sexual exploitation are sometimes entertaining and interesting to watch I feel like they have nothing to do with the hip hop culture.
When you hear the name Nicki Miinaj what do you think of? If you never heard this name before, your mind is probably all over the place about who this person might be. Nicki Minaj is exactly what the hip hop industry needs.

Hip Hop has come a long way since the beginning and more recently numerous hip hop artists are making it possible to take hip hop to the next level. One of the most prolific and successful businessmen outside of the hip hop industry is rapper 50 Cent who has released a new line of headphones. These headphones called Sleek use wireless Bluetooth technology that allows up to four head sets to listen to one broadcasting device. Music lovers can also enjoy over 60 feet of range, plus if the micro-usb rechargeable battery runs out, the detachable mic cable can simply be plugged in for continued listening. The expectations of these headphones exceeded the expectations of Dr. Dre’s beats by Dre headphones by far, but you better have 350 dollars to spend if you plan on getting anywhere near these headphones.
