Snoop Dogg: ‘I smoked weed at the White House’

Rapper Snoop Dogg risked arrest by smoking weed in a bathroom at the White House.

The hip-hop star has revealed he defied the security team at the President’s official residence to light up a joint during a bathroom break.

During an installment of his web series Double G News Network featuring an appearance by Jimmy Kimmel, the late night talk show host asked the rapper, “Have you ever smoked (weed) in the White House?”

Snoop Dogg replied, “In the bathroom… not in the White House, but in the bathroom. Cos (sic) I said, ‘May I use the bathroom for a second?’ and they (the security team) said, ‘What do you want to do a number one or number two?’ And I said ‘number two’… So I said when I do a number two I usually have a cigarette or I light something to get the aroma right and they said,’You know what, you can light a piece of napkin’ and I said ‘I’ll do that’ and the napkin was this (weed).”

A$AP ROCKY Sued After Allegedly Slapping Woman at Philly Concert

Harlem-born Rapper A$AP Rocky, a.k.a. Rakim Mayers, is being sued after he allegedly slapped a woman during last year’s Made in America festival in Philadelphia.

And apparently, this isn’t the first time he’s raised his hand to a woman after a performance. 

Montgomery County residence Lisamarie Wade filed suit against A$AP Rocky last week claiming that he slapped her in the face, knocking her to the ground, as he walked through the crowd at the Made in America festival on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway last September.

Wade says she suffers from migraines, muscle spasms and various other injuries, including a bruised ego, according to the lawsuit. 

The lawsuit also names Live Nation and 15 other members of Rocky’s entourage. 

Wade is seeking at least $75,000 in damages.

Last year’s incident is the second in which Rocky is accused of slapping a woman. That alleged assault was caught on camera.

A YouTube video of the “F&*^%$# Problems” rapper apparently slapping a female fan after she tapped him on the head and blew him a kiss as he made his way through the crowd at his concert in Sydney, Australia went viral in June 2013.

The video has since been removed from YouTube. 

Rocky was arrested in July 2012 for his part in the violent beating of a man in New York and again later that year for allegedly beating up two men who took a picture of him, according to Rolling Stone Magazine.

Listen To T.I.’s New Song, “Stay”, Featuring Victoria Monet

T.I.’s focused on what’s most important

In the past few weeks, anyone with internet knows that T.I. has been in one messy ongoing altercation involving Floyd Mayweather and his wife, Tiny.  Over Memorial Day Weekend, Mayweather and T.I. “brawled” because Tip was unhappy with the nature of Floyd’s relationship with Tiny, and since then the two superstars have sent shots back and forth at each other, the most recent being Floyd claiming he slept with Tiny at a press conference promoting his upcoming fight with Marcos Maidana.  Tip shrugged that off, and today, professes his love, loyalty and allegiance to his wife of 4 years on his new, Victoria Monet-assisted song, “Stay”.

The message is simple, and powerful.  Listen below.

Rare Eminem Song From 1988 is Released

Em didn’t become a rapper overnight

Recently, a  Reddit user posted an audio clip of a  16-year-old Eminem rapping on a track called ”Poo Butt Day.” The video was uploaded in 2011, and credited back to 1988.  The song also features Chaos Kid, who along with Eminem (then known as M&M). Proof and others made up the Detroit rap collective/group Soul Intent.

If you are wondering what a pooh butt day is, here’s what Eminem had to say:

Now a pooh butt day is something everybody’s had No particular depression neither mad or sad. You couldn’t see your butt because your butt is what it is ‘Cause when you’re feeling like a pooh butt then your feeling like s**t.

J Dilla’s MPC Is Headed To The Smithsonian, Where It Belongs

Around these parts, J Dilla‘s legacy needs no reinforcement. We understand how foundational his process and his touch were to hip-hop, much more to culture. And in a move straight off the OKP wish list, the currently in-construction Museum Of African American History And Culture has sided with the donut lover in all of us. Last night atDC Loves DillaMa Dukes took to the stage with a rep from the latest addition to The Smithsonian‘s arsenal of institutions to announce that Jay Dee’s MPC and custom Moog (built for him by Dr. Robert Moog no less!) will be installed in the museum to keep telling the story of his immeasurable contribution to our lives and to music.

“Dilla will be there when you walk through those doors,” the Smithsonian Museum representative stated. This seismic announcement was made before a near capacity crowd at the historic Howard Theatre to raucous applause from attendees of the 2014 DC Loves Dilla event. The show was a J Dilla Foundation/Lupus fundraiser featuredPhife DawgN’Dea D’avenport of Brand New Heavies fame, Pharaohe Monch andBahamadia. The show was hosted by DC Loves Dilla mainstay and brother of hip-hop Soul Brother # 1, Grap Luva (and attended by OKP’s DC correspondent Mel Blunt, who put us up on this breaking news in record time–what up, Mel).



J Dilla's MPC Is Headed To The Smithsonian, Where It Belongs

Dilla’s mpc–one of the last created by Mr. Moog–joining the Smthsonian collection is a coup on the order of getting one of Basquiat‘s brushes or Jimi‘s guitar or The Godfather‘s cape or Louie‘s trumpet–all of which we hope have either already been added to the list of installations or would at least be considered. The Museum Of African American History And Culture should be opening its doors late next year/early 2016 to the masses, so you’ll have to hold tight for a bit (get it?) But it’s certainly worth the wait. We’ll have more on the exhibit as details roll-out, so be sure to keep it locked. We’re also told that in 2015, DC Loves Dilla will feature a live performance of “A Suite for Ma Dukes.” Where, you may ponder? The Kennedy Center, dammitt!

Watch a clip from the announcement below and head over to the J Dilla Foundation orthe Smithsonian newsdesk for more info. Raise it up for Ma Dukes and Dilla fam.
