Justin, why the &%$# have you got Canadian bacon on yer 'ead?!?.
When I logged into EBay this morning I wasn't prepared for what awaited me: A painting of Justin Bieber with a pile of $#@%&*^ bacon on his head! And a giant smokestack in the distance behind him.

Best get yer bids in now though, 'cuz there's only ten of these babies available, and like the Disney Joy Division controversy earlier this year, they'll soon be snapped up. And the saddest pa...

In the words of one particular larger than life artist who has been thrown under the bus by the lot, “Everybody I know from the hood got common haters.” Like petty thugs who mock the clothes, the hair and most importantly the work of the players grinding it out in the trenches, these cyni...

Whenever the discussion of the top rappers of all time surfaces, it is sure to end in a heated debate in the mold of Canibus vs. LL Cool J or Jay-Z vs. Nas. I’m sure I may have left your favorite rapper off this list, so if I have, you can write your own blog post and I’ll tell you why you’re wrong. I have to take offense to a recent article published by one Scorsese, who finds the repulsive acts of Drake, Nicki Minaj and especially Kanye West to be the best in the game right now. While he ma...

An altercation ensued that resulted in several head injuries, the destruction of the night club’s interior and multiple law suits.

(1) Multi-platinum recording artists have feelings, too. Just because artists like Britney Spears and Master P have millions of dollars, doesn't mean they don't feel the sting when people illegally share their music. Next time you don't pay for one of their albums, just remember that you are the reason that Lars Ulrich will have to wait a few months before he can afford that gold-plated shark-tank bar for his swimming pool. Shame. | Episode #105: Christian Rock Hard (Season 7, Episode 9)

Behind the record industry and the endlessly grinding gears of the hit factory stand an elite group of individuals who are responsible for churning out the latest, greatest pop music the world has ever known. The Darwinian process that sees songs made or broken by a fickle public with millions of dollars at stake ensures the survival of only the fittest, but there are a select few who transcend the zeitgeist and end up defining the sound of a given moment. They aren’t always the biggest seller... [Read more]
