Wassup everyone? Nicci (neechee) here, ceo and host of Grandeur Radio. Whenever I feel I have some views that should or could be heard on a wider span, or are podcast worthy, I hop in here and get on the online radio mic. Tonight, I wanted to host a spontanous (semi spontaneous) show on what I feel will be a 2+ part series on Lil Kim VS Nicki Minaj: What's beef? There's so much misinformation, so much hysteria, so much complete ignorance to the history of female rap due to so many misguided youth being the primary consumers of current HipHop, I wanted to go in and appropriately rant about it. Since this show is spontaneous, I dont know what, if any, other hosts will be in attendance with me. What I DO know, is I wanna hear from people who have an opinion either way about the drama surrounding the two artists. Feel free to @ me on Twitter: Nicci_ISNeechee.
I do it for the Love OF HipHop!
AGAIN, 10pm until we're allowing LIVE casting for #TheRevolutionOfMusic docuseries AND #BattleOfTheBeasts is going down tonight. We're looking for people to debut their skills and get a chance to come to Miami Beach to begin a series of battles in 5 different cities for a chance to walk away with $100,000 in cash and prizes on New Years EVE in Miami Beach for the finale battle-crowned for the King and.or Queen. Wanna call in and debut your skills? Call us up- 646-716-8235 and press 1. The mic...the telephone mic that is, is yours.
Everyone says they can rap, right? No, they can't. Many people say they can battle rap=that they're the greatest to do this. But the truth IS, they're NOT. Artist Prince Bricks has proven his strength in Battle Rap on Grandeur Radio. But, there's a lot more people who have bars...Now are they skilled enough to get in the ring for $100,000, or are they all stuntin? This isn't instigation, this is a challenge for you to gain exposure and possibly win something when it's all said and done. Bricks said no one is takin his spot in this win leading up to $100,000. ask him yourself on Twitter @8BlockBrickz.
Got Bars or Nah?

Conscious rap is a category of hip-hop culture that builds awareness and instills knowledge. These artists usually speak against violence, drug use and other social ills. It's built on the idea that social change is brought on through knowledge of self and personal discovery.
There was a time when the hardest emcees gave the world an enlightening song: Ice Cube—Us; Geto Boys—Crooked Officer; X-Clan—Funkin’ Lesson; Tupac—Keep Ya Head Up. Lately, the subject matter in most rap lyrics are far from inspiring.
There is, however a new movement on the horizon— Larry "Lak" Henderson’s Smart Music Movement is bringing back the days when rap lyrics penetrated and motivated young minds and strengthened communities at the roots. Henderson is here set the stage and revitalize awareness in rap. Conscious rap is well rested and ready for a second wind.
