Video After The Jump
Jay-Z is a big supporter of President Obama. Today he’s featured the President’s “The Power of Our Voice” viral video series.
Hov explains why it’s important to exercise your right to vote and how “President Obama represents the power of our voice.“
“For so long, there was this voice that was silenced out there as far as exercising your right to vote. I think it was a voice that was silent because people had lost hope. They didn’t believe that their voice mattered or counted.”
“Now people are exercising their right, and you are starting to see the power of our vote. He made it mean something for the first time for a lot of people. “
On Tuesday night’s “Hard Knocks,” an HBO reality series that profiles NFL training camp every season, the spotlight was on Chad Johnson as Miami Dolphin’s coach Joe Phildin fired him as wide reciever.
This was less than a day after the football player was charged with alleged domestic violence against his wife Evelyn Lozada. The two are now in the midst of a divorce as we previously reported.
From the start of the conversation with the coach, Johnson was very apologetic. However, Phildin’s mind was already made up.
As the Dolphin’s coach explained that he wasn’t trying to make an example out of him, Johnson took it like a champ.
A few days ago I had the privilege of interviewing one of Miami’s dopest new emcees, Jigg. We talked about his new mixtape Spittaduction hosted by DJ Drama and Don Cannon, as well as his upcoming project “High Grade 2″ which is coming real soon. We also touched on his city and how it inspired him as an emcee as well as the other Hip Hop artists who he grew up on. Then we spoke on the new wave of Miami emcees and of course what’s next for him. I really appreciated him taking the time to do this, and he gave some really straight forward answers.

Paid Dues was a very good experience for my first time going to any music festival like that. I arrived at Paid Dues at about 3:30 right before Wu-Tang got on stage. When the WU hit the stage the energy was crazy. Wu-Tang had the best performance out of any group or solo artist that was there. They went through all their classics and just tore down the stage. Method Man diving into the crowd to fans in the crowd doing mosh pits. The only Wu-Tang member that was not there was the GZA.
Next to come on the main stage after them was the Boot Camp Click and they had a lot of energy but I could tell the crowd was not to familiar with their work. Sean P. started it off with his lyrical craziness. Then Buckshot came on after him and did most of his Black Moon classics. You can tell in that group that Buckshot is the leader and general in that click. I really thought the Boot Camp Click held it down.
After that I went on to see other acts that was about 30 feet away inside a dome. Mac Lethal was the emcee that was on the stage inside when I walked in and as soon as I walked in I wanted to walk out too. Although I am not to familiar with Mac Lethal I just thought his penmanship was just to corny for me. His stage presence was just terrible. I had to walk out after five minutes of seeing him.
Next was Dilated Peoples and every time I see these cats perform they just put on a great show. DJ Babu was on the ones and twos holding it down too. Dilated performed all of their classics and even their solo stuff between the two. Alchemist came out to join for a couple of songs and Fashawn came out to do his thing too.
On to Odd Future who I really tried to give a chance and listen to but their energy was just not there. I mean I can see them trying to be different but it was just not happening. Odd Future was on stage making burgers for what reason I have no idea. The crowd was not giving Odd Future any energy and vice versa. Their performance was everything of the word terrible.
After that I had to go because it was just an overload of music to me. I just thought that that was just too much music for me. I did not get to see Dipset, Kendrick Lamar or DJ Quik performance because I was just too tired. Maybe next time I will get to see them perform.
