Kidd Kidd is up next, closing out XXL’s 2015 Freshman freestyle series. The G-Unit rapper brings some New Orleans flavor to battleground during his two-minute performance.

I was going for the 10th spot, so I looked at a lot of the competition and I’m telling myself, ‘Yo, if I don’t get this spot like something up with y’all!’ I feel like I put in the work and I put in enough effort, and I have yet to really show y’all what it’s really about to be.

Check out the freestyle and his video profile below.

Young Guru is known for many things hip-hop. His work with Roc-A-fella pretty much solidifies his spot forever but there’s so much more to the DJ/producer/engineer. On the latest episode of The Combat Jack Show, Guru talks about his early days in Delaware, his love for AC DC, going to see Will Smith & Fresh Prince as a kid and more. “I would take the ass whoopin’ to pass my curfew for the Jazzy Jeff party,” Guru remembers about seeing the duo back in the day.

The “Most Successful Engineer In Hip Hop” makes his second appearance on The Combat Jack Show to share his thoughts on the Roc hey day, the recent Tidal Roc reunion, behind the scenes on some of his greatest hits and why Jay Z didn’t get ethered by Jay Z. Plus, a very special announcement by Brooklyn District Attorney Ken Thompson.

Geto-Boys

The Geto Boys are working on releasing their first group album in over a decade. They last released Foundation back in 2005 which was met with moderate success and acclaim. Titled Habeas Corpus, Willie D told Rolling Stone they want to raise $100,000 by July 15. Producers Mike Dean, Tone Capone, N.O. Joe, along with guest Ice Cube are said to have contributed to the project.

“I’d like to take credit, but the fans really made it happen,” rapper Willie D tells Rolling Stone. “It’s hard to get all of us on the same page, ’cause everybody’s always doing their own thing. We are three totally different people. We didn’t grow up together. We’re not blood-related. We didn’t go to the same schools, didn’t grow up in the same neighborhood. The one commonality that we do share is being in the group.”

Jhene Aiko‘s “eat the booty groceries” might be one of the most talked about lyrics of the year. Nobody expected sweet lil’ Jhene to put her freaky tales on front street like that. But the debate whether the line is literal, or just for fun still has people scratching their heads. That was until MTV’s Rob Markman took Aiko to real grocery store for the 411.
