pro era extortion.jpg

Despite being a five-track freebie for Scion AV, The Shift easily showcased some of Pro Era’s best work. As the title suggests, the project saw the Brooklyn kids swap out their nostalgia-soaked boom bap for something a little more contemporary, and the change was seamless. Case in point, “Extortion,” which is arguably their best song to date. Giving the track its due visual makeover, MCs Kirk Knight and Dyemond Lewis take over BK at night in this Jessica Lehrman-directed video. Download The Shift EP here.

busta rhymes cash money.jpg

After nearly three years on the label, Busta Rhymes has left Cash Money. The Brooklyn rapper confirmed his departure during a recent appearance on Shade 45′s Sway on the Morning, explaining that creative conflict regarding his upcoming album, E.L.E. 2, was the reason behind his decision. However, Bussa Buss assured that there is no bad blood between him and YMCMB boss Birdman. Busta didn’t say whether he’ll be signing with another label or taking the independent route with E.L.E. 2, though.

For me, with this particular project and all of the sacrifice that went into it — recording the album for five years, I lost Chris Lighty making this album, I lost my father making this album. The shit I was putting into this album, I’m not compromising my vision for it.

So if I feel like if, in the slightest way, we ain’t facilitating everything necessary for the vision to be seen through and executed in the way that I’ve been envisioning this shit for the last five years, let me live and die in my own own inequity.

I just had a conversation with Bird like, ‘Listen, bro. I’m grateful and everything is love with us, but I just gotta see this through the way that I wan’t to see this through.’

The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart is out to take over CNN and restructure the company as he sees fit. Even if he’s not all the way series about his new mock Kickstarter campaign at LetsBuyCNN.com, it’s still a pretty awesome notion.

“CNN, America’s first 24-hour cable news network, has been terrible for many, many years. Does it have to be that way? Who knows, maybe it does. So let’s find out for ourselves!,” says the site. On tuesday night, Stewart went off on Rupert Murdoch’s plans to buy CNN parent company Time Warner. That could lead to Murdoch selling CNN in order to avoid regulatory problems, according to HollywoodReporter

coolio pornhub.jpg

Remember that softcore thriller from like 10 years ago called Stealing Candy that Coolio starred in? No? Oh, me neither. I just read about it on Wikipedia, I swear. Well, that’s light work compared to the “Gangster’s Paradise” rapper’s latest porno project.

In a bizarre yet ballsy effort to revive his career, Coolio is planning to release a new body of work through — wait for it — PornHub.com. According to TMZ, the site provided the, erm, talent for his new video, aptly-titled “Take It To The Hub,” in exchange for premiering his future releases.

It’ll be the 50-year-old rapper’s first musical project in five years, and what a way to announce your comeback (no pun intended).

Go behind the scenes of Coolio’s “Take It to the Tub” video below (NSFW, obviously)
