Damnn Breezy....Back at it again

Good Afternoon, What's Up, How You Doing people my name is Raul aka The Renegade coming back to you with another social media topic in the music world. Recently Virginia native Chris Brown is back in the headlines with news in a bad way. Chris was sent to prison due to a issue where he threatened a woman at his house with gun. I know what you thinking how can Chris possibly get in anymore bad situations then he already has. Its no denying that this man Chris has been in more issues than you could think of from domestic violent issues with Rihanna to baby mama drama over his daughter Royalty. The only thing about this issue is that it is so many accusations and weird twists and turns going on in this story.

According to starcasm the woman, Curan, that Chris apparently cursed out said that she was admiring his jewelry that he had displayed in his home and then started to get irritated with the girl and her friends and started to scream names at them and told them to get the F out, I'm sick of you girls and began to threaten them with a gun. Now, my thing is why call the police on a person when you are in their house obviously making them feel a bit uncomfortable. Another thing, why did it need to be S.W.A.T. and so many police officers surrounding his house when he did not want to come out his house because the police failed to comply with a search warrant that is required to have when you have the intentions to search a person's home. It is a lot of gaps in this story because they made him pay 250,000 for bail because he had a stand off at his home because police officers did not have a warrant present to search his home. We currently already have a lot of issues with police and African Americans so this situation is adding to more issues directed towards that situation. What do you guys think? Do yall feel that the police should have surrounded his home the way they did?

Frank Ocean's Wave

Good Afternoon, Hello, and What's Up everybody this is Raul Rodriguez aka The Renegade back with another musical topic and one that we all can be happy about. Most recently Frank Ocean..yes i said Frank Ocean has risen from the cave where he was creating master plans and dope projects for us to enjoy for a while. A good beginning of fall and end of summer present for us if might say. He just dropped his new album "Blonde" that a lot of people been dying for along with a magazine called "Boys Don't Cry" and a visual of his album Blonde. Talk about major moves from the comeback kid. From what I been seeing and hearing this album is definitely one to have on repeat and one of the biggest albums that is sure to break records on the top 200 billboards. I have not gotten a chance to listen to it but i definitely will be tuning in very soon to see how dope this album is.

According to Victoria Hernandez of Hip Hop dx this album was actually a independently released album on behalf of Frank himself. From the Hip Hop dx source it is said that "The singer has had a rocky relationship with Def Jam in the past as he was originally signed as a songwriter. He took to Twitter to blast the label in 2011 after he released his Nostalgia, Ultra mixtape, saying “i. did. this. not ISLAND DEF JAM. that’s why you see no label logo on the artwork that I DID. guess its my fault for trusting my dumb*** lawyer and signing my career over to a failing company. f**k Def Jam & any company that goes the length of signing a kid with dreams & talent w/ no intention of following through. f**k em. now back to my day. I want some oatmeal and toast. brunch swag.” Pretty strong words from the "Thinking about you" singer, nonetheless, understandable reasoning on why he did what he did and aid what he said. What do you think? do you believe what Frank did was wrong or did he have all rights to do what he did? check more info on Hip Hop dx

Introduction to Music N3rd

Good Afternoon, How you doing? and What's Up? this is the introduction of my blog. Every week I will be discussing different aspects or important situations that is happening in the music industry. I will be sharing my opinions on new songs, mixtapes, albums, artist, fashion and what I think has changed about today's music in comparison to the older generation of music. Also, I will be sharing the ins and outs of what I do musically and the production stand point of how I make music and what goes into constructing a good quality song(s). Lastly, in my blogs I will be talking about the positive as well as the negative things that's happening in the industry with a couple jokes throw in to lighten the tone, no shade, just jokes. A few puns here and there. or majority of the time.

First Thing I want to discuss in today's blog with the Nerd of Music is the highlight of social media right now when Drake brought none other than Eminem on stage to perform "Forever" at the summer sixteen tour in Detroit. The city of the hometown hero was extremely excited and will never forget that moment. It basically was another great step into a new milestone for Drake not only putting rumors rest by bringing the GOAT on stage with him, but by paying homage to Em and declaring him as "The greatest rapper to ever touch a microphone." Everybody been speculating and coming up with random rumors about Em making a diss song directed to Drake since he has been currently beefing with Eminem's affiliated camp member of Slaughterhouse Joe Budden. I for one knew that this beef was never going to occur because though Eminem is known for notoriously killing individuals on the microphone whenever he felt like it. The only way you can get Em to step back in the booth and cook up something vicious is that he has to have an issue with you, hating being compared to you, or your name just happened to rhyme in the wordplay that he was creating. I feel that Joe Budden is a grown man that started his own beef and as long as Eminem's name is not thrown in the mix then the Rap God will not be seeking to end careers, it's that simple. What Do Y'all think? Did You Really See A Eminem and Drake Beef Happening?
