    Is Gentrification Killing New York's Hip Hop Soul?

    in Hip Hop Music

    Year three of The NY Hip Hop Report on BlogTalkRadio kicks off with this important, and polarizing topic. In our three years covering, discussing and receiving your insight on the New York-area's thriving, progressive hip hop musical and cultural scene, we can't help but to notice the elephant in the room: Gentrification. 


    The influx of outsiders moving into the five boroughs, changing neighborhoods, iconic New York establishments disappearing, skyrocketing rents and the continued focus by the industry and media on hip hop from other areas of the country, have all cast a shadow over the independent hip hop communities in New York.


    We'll discuss whether or not New York's hip hop soul has been damaged by these changing times, and what can be done to ensure that the legacy, both from the past and from the highly progressive current landscape, remains strong and protected.


    PLUS: Queens' Top $ Raz will be on the check in, discussing his new project, REGULAR BLACK!


    As usual, new release information, local hip hop news, fundraiser of the week and YOUR CALLS!


    This episode of The NY Hip Hop Report is brought to you by Doin' It In The Park, a free hip hop and soul park jam, going down Sunday, June 21 at Maria Hernandez Park in Bushwick, Brooklyn. The event is presented by Birthplace Magazine, Manny Faces and Social Ebonics, and features amazing NY-area artists.


    Equipment for Doin' It In The Park is being provided by FUNKADELIC STUDIOS - For all your rehearsal, recording and equipment rental needs!

    Vanguard of Renaissance - Factions of Freedom Ep. 108

    in Homeschooling

    Four days ago the Ukrainian Parliament has approved new regulations on martiallaw, which allows for extrajudicial detention and relocation of Russian. Today, Ukraine says rebel forces are being helped by regular Russian troops. Ukraine's military says its forces have captured two Russian soldiers fighting with rebels in EasternUkraine. The soldiers were members of Russia's elite special forces and seized in Shchastya.

    Police Chief, SteveWhite, chair of the PoliceFederation, said his 123,000 members, police constables & inspectors, fear a move towards a more violent style of policing. They try to keep law and order with even fewer officers than now. “You get a style of policing where the first options are teargas, rubber bullets and water cannon, which are the last options in the UK.”

    In Health Care, David Cameron: ‘There is nothing that embodies the spirit of OneNation coming together – nothing that working people depend on more – than the NHS.’ DavidCameron will pledge to deliver the world’s first seven day-a-week universalhealthservice that will guarantee care to patients “wherever they are and whenever they need it”.

    ISIS militants conquered western #Iraqi city of #Ramadi. The group said it had seized tanks and killed "dozens of apostates", its description for members of the Iraqi security forces.

    Vanguard of Renaissance - Factions of Freedom Ep. 106

    in Homeschooling

    Jade Helm is going to happen, what exactly is going to take place is what we need to focus on. How do we get past that? What has happened while we've been distracted with the occupying of our own country?

    We need to fight for our rights to live and to purusit our own dreams.

    Right now we are faced against an alleged impossible opponent -- To this I say no.

    Where I'm from, we face our fears head on and handle them. The world's going to hell in a hand basket and we need to step up our actions, Iran shooting rounds at US tankers in the gulf area, Greece not allowed to leave the EU, the Ukranian parliment force relocating Russian citizens AND the US being cited by the UN for racism and police brutality?

    Come on.

    When are we going to stop taking this nonsense and stand up for everything? The NWO is going down.

    http://www.pbs.org/program/inside-court-henry-viii/ - Inside the Court of Henry VIII – “… Henry VIII is the most iconic king of English history. Part medieval tyrant, part renaissance prince, he ruled over his people as no king of England had ever done before. He took a country salvaged by his father from the wreck of civil war and set over it a single, sovereign ruler. By the end of his reign the power of the Tudor dynasty was absolute — but at a terrible cost. Personally responsible for the death of two of his own wives, along with many of his closest friends and advisors, he is said to have ordered the execution of up to 72,000 Britons. His reign will go down as one of the bloodiest in history…”

    HOWARD HEWETT - EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW-WED, MAR 18, 2015 - 5:00 pm PST

    in Music

    Howard Hewett (born October 1, 1955, Akron, Ohio, United States) is an American R&B and gospel singer, and former lead vocalist of the R&B group Shalamar.


    Raised in Akron, Ohio, Hewett moved to Los Angeles in 1976, where he met John and Alonzo Daniels, owners of an historical club in the LA Crenshaw district, called Maverick's Flat. It was at Maverick's that Hewett first met Jeffrey Daniel and Jody Watley (eventually Shalamar). Hewett and the Daniels brothers formed a show group called "Beverly Hills" and through Daniels bookings toured throughout Europe, the UK, Scandinavia and Asia for all of 1978 till the middle of 1979.


    After returning from overseas, Hewett started recording for Jeffrey Bowen, a Motown producer (The Temptations, Commodores, Bonnie Pointer) who was working on a solo project on guitarist Eddie Hazel (Parliament-Funkadelic). Hewett never completed the project because towards the end of 1979, he got a call from Jeffrey Daniel, who was on the road with Shalamar in the middle of a promotional tour. They had suddenly found themselves in need of a lead singer and Daniel made Hewett an offer that he accepted. Within three days Hewett flew to New Jersey, where he met up with Watley and Daniel, rehearsed the lip synch and choreography to the current Shalamar single "Take That To The Bank", and found himself in front of a TV camera on a local dance show in Paterson, New Jersey. They completed the promotional tour and returned to Los Angeles and immediately started recording the Big Fun LP with their producer, Leon Sylvers. The trio went on to record songs such as "Second Time Around", "Make That Move", "A Night to Remember", "Dancing in the Sheets" and the ballad "This Is for the Lover in You". Hewett was the group's lead singer from 1979 until 1985.
