Prodigy of Mobb Deep, Has Passed a 42

Mobb Deep’s Prodigy has died, a representative for the rapper has confirmed. 
“Prodigy was hospitalized a few days ago in Vegas after a Mobb Deep performance for complications caused by a sickle cell anemia crisis,” their statement reads. 
“As most of his fans know, Prodigy battled the disease since birth. The exact causes of death have yet to be determined.” News first broke of the rapper’s passing when Nas posted a photo of him to his Instagram with the caption “QB RIP King P.” He was 42.
Prodigy (real name Albert Johnson) was born in 1974. The son of a long line of musicians, he co-founded the hip-hop duo Mobb Deep with Kejuan Muchita (better known as Havoc) in the early 1990s. 
They released their debut album Juvenile Hell in 1993, and went on to release three more full-lengths before the end of the decade, continuing to release music and tour together in the new millennium. The most Mobb Deep album, The Infamous Mobb Deep, was issued in 2014. Last year, Prodigy released a collection of his collaborations through a BitTorrent bundle.

Did Papoose sign to MMG

It looks like Papoose is taking his talents to South Beach and signing with Maybach Music Group. The Brooklyn MC recently announced the move on a new track titled, “Back on My Bullshit” remix, which features MMG head honcho Rick Ross and Jaquae.
On the high-powered track, Pap gets the big news out of the way early. 

Spitting a rapid-fire flow, he starts off his verse with the lines, “This summer, I’m only ridin’ in convertibles, son/I’m signed to MMG, money, murder and guns/Rick Ross was official, I knew him a long time/’Cause he took off his shades just so he can look in my eye.”
Rozay reveals a long-standing relationship with the New York spitta on his verse rapping, “Met Pap in ’96, fresh off the bus/Residue in my raps from holdin’ dust/I didn’t wanna in case I made her touch her toes/We touchin’ money but really, who touch the most?”

If official, this signing could be the career boost the elite lyricist is looking for. Pap has been known as an ill spitta on the mixtape scene for years, but has yet to crack the code as far as gaining mainstream footing. He has released a slew of mixtapes and two albums, including his debut The Nacirema Dream in 2013 and the sophomore LP, You Can’t Stop Destiny, in 2015.

Comedian Charlie Murphy DEAD at 57

Charlie Murphy is dead, TMZ reports. He was 57.

Murphy's manager told the celebrity gossip site that he died Wednesday morning in a New York hospital. He had been undergoing chemotherapy in his battle with leukemia.

Murphy was a standup comedian like his brother, Eddie Murphy, and famously co-starred on "Chappelle's Show" with Dave Chappelle. Their most memorable skits together included spoofs of Prince and Rick James: "What'd the five fingers say to the face? SLAP!"

Charlie Murphy also co-wrote some of Eddie's movies, including "Norbit" and "Vampire in Brooklyn," and appeared on screen in "Are We There Yet?" and "Black Jesus." Murphy also starred in the animated comedy "The Boondocks."

Murphy, who had toured with other comedians like Cedric the Entertainer, Eddie Griffin and D.L. Hughley, most recently performed in Syracuse at the Landmark Theatre in 2012.

According to TMZ, Murphy had three children. His wife, Tisha Taylor Murphy, died of cervical cancer in 2009.

Ross Disses Birdman

Rick Ross throws some torpedo-sized shots at Birdman on “Idols Become Rivals,” a Rather You Than Me cut that will surely send shockwaves through the Internet.
The track surfaced online after Rozay’s newest album was released internationally. You can hear it below.

After a 30-second intro from Chris Rock, Rick Ross starts going in on Baby.
“I used to see you niggas on my TV screen/And wonder what was life like, was it all a dream?/And then I met you on them Live Nation dates/Came to the realization that your watch was fake,” the irrepressibly theatrical MMG boss spits over a key-driven instrumental that manages to sound both sentimental and ominous at the same time. It utilizes the same sample used for Jay Z and Beanie Sigel’s “Where Have You Been.”

The instrumental is an appropriate one, considering Rozay sounds genuinely disappointed with the observations he’s apparently made about the Cash Money co-founder. A bit later in the song, he bashes Birdman for apparently not going to see B.G. when he was locked up. He also goes to bat for Lil Wayne, who’s been engaged in a huge legal battle with Birdman over the past two years.
Calling Stunna by name, Ross mentions that he’s still got love for the co-owner of Cash Money, but that doesn’t stop him from condemning the music mogul for allegedly underpaying everyone on Cash Money.

“You would give us self-esteem and motivate our drive/But was in our pocket by the time we count to five/I pray you find the kindness in your heart for Wayne/His entire life he gave you what that was the game/I watched that whole debacle so I’m part to blame/Last request: can all producers please get paid,” Ross raps toward the very end of the song.

Ross also mentions DJ Khaled, Mannie Fresh and Scott Storch as people Baby did wrong before ending the song with, “Last request, can all producers please get paid?

Tonight on The CKBP Show: Jordan Peele

Tonight on the @Ckbpshow We have Jordan Peele talking about his breakout movie, "Get Out". Have you seen it yet? Tune in at 8pm

"GET OUT" is a Horror Hit

The opening scene of Get Out is a familiar horror-movie image—a stranger walking an unfamiliar street, in the dead of night, nervously looking over their shoulder at every rustle of sound. The setting is the suburbs, a frequent favorite of the slasher genre, only the victim is not a scantily clad teen girl, but an African American man, uneasily navigating what seems like hostile territory. A car pulls up alongside him, blasting the dirge-like old-fashioned ditty “Run Rabbit Run.” “Not today,” he mutters, turning around and walking in the opposite direction. But of course, his fate is already sealed.

Get Out was written and directed by Jordan Peele, one half of the legendary sketch-comedy duo behind Key & Peele. That show had a remarkable grasp on the visual hallmarks of the film genres it often mimicked, and its humor often lay in the preciseness of its parody. But Get Out is no mere pastiche. It’s an atmospheric, restrained, extremely effective work of horror with a clear point of view, a darkly hilarious movie that never trips over itself in search of a cheap laugh or scare. What might sound like a one-joke premise turns into something richly textured; what might seem like an easy metaphor is, in fact, anything but.

Like so many horror films, Get Out is exploring the creepy menace of the suburbs. Usually, similar slasher movies exist to puncture the false veneer of safety that comes with a white picket fence, but in Get Out, the threatening vibe is present from minute one. Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) is about to meet the parents of his girlfriend Rose (Allison Williams) for the first time and is nervous when he realizes she hasn’t told them that he’s black. After a long drive, their manse turns out to be exactly what you might imagine—giant, secluded, pristine, and filled with trinkets from trips around the world.

Rose’s father Dean (Bradley Whitford) is a little too eager to call Chris “my man,” her mother Missy (Catherine Keener) is icy and standoffish, and her brother Jeremy (Caleb Landry Jones) is weirdly aggressive, but there’s nothing that unusual going on at first. Peele layers in a familiar awkwardness before slowly introducing elements of dread. The house’s maid Georgina (Betty Gabriel) and the groundskeeper Walter (Marcus Henderson), both black, have strangely placid demeanors; Missy is a psychiatrist who keeps offering to hypnotize Chris (just to help him stop smoking, you understand); and, naturally, there’s a locked basement no one’s allowed to go into (just a nasty case of mold, of course).

t’s best to know as little as possible about Get Out’s second and third acts. Peele’s plotting is as crisp as his knack for visual storytelling, and he doles out tidbits of information with glee, letting the audience slowly figure out the particulars of Rose’s family while they guess at just how deep the malevolence goes. Chris is on edge from minute one, understandably; behind the family’s friendly surface is the kind of passive prejudice he obviously feared from the get-go. The delight comes in watching how Peele heightens that into real terror. Get Out is clearly playing on the discomfort a young African American man might have in visiting a largely white community—something rarely explored by the horror genre.

There are few more frightening monsters to conjure than racism, after all. It’s a topic the genre has brushed up against—with the black protagonist of Night of the Living Dead, a rare sight in 1968, or in Bernard Rose’s 1992 classic Candyman, in which the titular figure in part represented America’s history of slavery and repression. But racism is still a surprisingly uncommon subject matter, and Peele addresses a more insidious fear—of the fallacy of America being a post-racial society, and of the nightmares one can imagine under that benign surface.

Kaluuya, a British actor who was extraordinary in the Black Mirror episode “Fifteen Million Merits” and, more recently, played Emily Blunt’s stoic partner in Sicario, is terrific in the lead role. Williams excels as Rose, weaponizing the lack of self-awareness she deploys so well on HBO’s Girls. The entire cast is perfectly restrained, save for maybe Jones, who feels unhinged from the start, and the delightful Lil Rel Howery, who plays Chris’s friend Rod, a TSA agent with the kind of moxie and deductive powers one might not expect from an employee of that particular agency. He’s a vehicle for the film’s biggest laugh lines—but Get Out is funny throughout, wringing jokes from even the tensest moments.

Best of all, though, is that Get Out is truly frightening. Not because it’s loaded with jump scares (though it does have a couple of good ones), nor because it features excessively visceral violence. It’s so perfectly calibrated that every escalation feels organic: What begins as an awkward tale of meeting the parents becomes something much, much worse, but it’s all part of a fully realized whole. Get Out is an extremely confident debut feature for Peele, one steeped in the language of horror cinema rather than merely copying it. It’s also likely to be one of the wryest, funniest, most relevant films of the year.  

Where in the World is Nicki?

Following the release of Remy Ma's diss track "ShETHER," many expected Nicki Minaj — Remy's unsuspecting target — to jump right in the studio and get to work on her response. We all thought it would be Drake vs. Meek Mill 2.0, but we may have been wrong about that.
It's been days since Remy dropped her bomb, and Nicki hasn't made any indication that she's going to respond to it; in fact, she's barely acknowledged it at all, aside from beefing with Trey Songz about it and vague posting on Instagram.
So what's Nicki been up to? She has been working on music, sort of; specifically, she's been filming music videos with Gucci Mane and Future, and posting pics and videos from the shoots on her Instagram.
So does this mean we should stop expecting a response track? Nicki could still surprise us all, and wouldn't it be even more epic if we weren't expecting it? If she does have new music up her sleeve, she may want to drop it soon — the Twitterverse is getting impatient.
