Cardi B Again Made a Rant About Negative Reporting: She says non-urban blogs talk badly about hip hop culture because urban blogs do it first.
This sparked another point for Cardi to make as she shared on Instagram that non-urban media outlets have turned to capitalizing off of the controversy surrounding urban celebrities because urban blogs have raked in lucrative incomes from negative reports. “People be in the comments like, ‘Oh why are they making documentaries about R. Kelly? Why are they making documentaries about Michael Jackson?’ Well, let me tell y’all why. Because y’all make people feel like it’s okay to do so.”
“Why wouldn’t a white Caucasian person try to capitalize from the drama that happens in the urban and the black entertainment business, when black blogs, black-owned blogs capitalize off they own drama and problems. You don’t see Donald Trump,” she continued. “You don’t see Charlie Sheen sh*t going viral every year, every so. ‘Cause they don’t give a f*ck anymore. Back in the day, TMZ used to report about Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, all these Caucasian celebrities, all these celebrity actors. Now, all they do is post about hip hop artists, people that’s in the black entertainment business because black blogs capitalize off of black entertainer’s drama.”
Although we can see her point, to be fair, Donald Trump is the President of the United States and is both dragged and hailed in the media almost every minute of every day. And Charlie Sheen, well,his “Tiger Blood” days are behind him, and he’s pretty much lived a quiet life doing whatever it is that Charlie Sheen does. Angelina Jolie is a United Nations ambassador with a hoard of children, and both she and Brad Pitt have been in the headlines as of late now that their divorce is official.
Also, the influence of hip hop culture is undeniable as is transcends borders that that society has created. There are people, worldwide, who know more about famous rappers than they do their elected officials. Non-urban-centered blogs know this, so they piggy-back off of the hip hop media to bring in those readers. However, well-balanced news sources are most effective, and at the heart of Cardi’s rant, that’s all that she wants.

Gallagher said: “I did lose a load of lyrics early on in Oasis. We got slung out of a hotel in Manchester – The Britannia, The Midland…one of those – by the police and a lyric book went missing.”
He added: “It has not surfaced, and it was in 1993 or 1994, so somebody has just launched it in a bin haven’t they?”

In the same podcast, Gallagher also opened up about how he thought the band ruined their chances of finding success in the US.
Gallagher added: “It was the start of our big crack at America and our first gig was an absolutely fucking shambles of drugs and booze.”
“That part of the tour, I don’t really remember it. They were crazy days. It was fun: we wore it well. The American tours were always fraught with tension. We were just being drunk and idiots – young and daft and running with the wheels off.”
Posting on Twitter, Gallagher explained how he previously believed ‘Don’t Stop…’ to be “lost forever.”
“Hey there dudes and dollies. Like the rest of the world, I’ve had infinite time to kill lately so I thought I’d finally look and find out what was actually on the HUNDREDS of faceless unmarked CD’s I’ve got lying around in boxes at home,” he wrote.
“As fate would have it, I have stumbled across an old demo which I thought had been lost forever.”
Beyonce on justice for George Floyd: “There is a long road ahead”
Beyonce has urged Black Lives Matter campaigners to stay “focused” as demonstrations against the death of George Floyd continue across the globe.
Posting on Instagram, the singer shared a powerful photo of protestors filling the streets of Minnesota, where Floyd died last week.
“The world came together for George Floyd. We know there is a long road ahead,” she wrote.
“Let’s remain aligned and focused in our call for real justice.”
Her call came hours after the charges against Derek Chauvin, who knelt on Floyd’s neck, were upgraded to second-degree murder. Yesterday, three other officers were also charged with aiding and abetting second-degree murder, and aiding and abetting second-degree manslaughter.
Last week, Beyonce also spoke out about Floyd’s tragic death in an emotional video posted to Instagram.
She said: “We need justice for George Floyd. We all witnessed his murder in broad daylight. We’re broken and we’re disgusted.
“We cannot normalise this pain. I’m not only speaking to people of colour. If you’re white, black, brown, or anything in between, I’m sure you feel hopeless by the racism going on in America right now.
“No more senseless killings of human beings. No more seeing people of colour as less than human. We can no longer look away. George is all of our family in humanity. He’s family because he’s a fellow American.”
She added: “There have been too many times that we’ve seen these violent killings and no consequences. Yes, someone has been charged but justice is far from being achieved. Please sign the petition and continue to pray for peace, compassion, and healing for our country. Thank you so much.”
Her husband, Jay-Z, has also taken out full page newspaper adverts in tribute to Floyd.
Yesterday, thousands of people in the UK showed solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement by attending a massive protest in London’s Hyde Park.
The event also saw John Boyega receiving widespread praise for addressing the huge crowd.
Listen to Jay-Z’s new protest playlist, ‘Songs For Survival 2’
Featuring records by himself, Jay Electronica, 2Pac, Nina Simone, James Brown and Marvin Gaye, the list features seventeen songs and follows the first instalment of the playlist, which was released back in 2016.
The list comes a week after Jay-Z spoke out about the killing of George Floyd in Minnesota on May 25. Floyd, 46, died in Minneapolis following an altercation with police officers. Floyd, who was African American, was killed when a white police officer appeared to kneel on his neck as he lay on the ground during an arrest.
Officer Derek Chauvin has since been sacked and charged with second-degree murder and manslaughter. Three of his colleagues, Thomas Lane, Tou Thao and J Alexander Keung are now all facing charges of aiding and abetting second-degree murder, and aiding and abetting second-degree manslaughter. Since Floyd’s death, protests have erupted in the US and around the world.
After calling Minnesota Governor Tim Walz on May 30 to further amplify calls for justice for Floyd, Jay-Z issued a statement on Roc Nation in the early hours of June 1 to further elaborate on his “very earnest conversation” with Walz and thank him for calling in Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison to lead Floyd’s case.
“Earlier today, Governor Walz mentioned having a human conversation with me — a dad and a black man in pain,” the rapper wrote. “Yes, I am human, a father and a black man in pain and I am not the only one.
“Now I, along with an entire country in pain, call upon AG Ellison to do the right thing and prosecute all those responsible for the murder of George Floyd to the fullest extent of the law.” Saying that this was “just a first step”, Jay-Z added: “I am more determined to fight for justice than any fight my would-be oppressors may have.
“I prevail on every politician, prosecutor, and officer in the country to have the courage to do what is right. Have the courage to look at us as humans, dads, brothers, sisters, and mothers in pain. And look at yourselves.”
Jay-Z and his entertainment company Roc Nation also took out full-page adverts in newspapers across the US earlier this week (June 2) dedicated to the memory of Floyd.
The advertisements contained a powerful quote by Martin Luther King, Jr. which the civil rights leader made during an address in Selma, Alabama in March 1965.
