Fame is a helluva drug, and it comes at a high price. While many wish to reach that larger than life level, sometimes it costs friendships, family, and even morals. Many who have done everything to achieve fame later regretted it. Tonight we’re not gonna get too preachy, it’s all about the music coming from Jamaican born, Bronx based, Hood Celebrityy. Grabbing the reigns of French Montana’s “Famous“, she tackles it with her blend of Dancehall/Hip Hop. Highlighting how people treat you when you’re famous, she adds that they’ll never love you as well as those who genuinely care for you. The track was produced by Rico Love, DTownThaGreat, and DanjaHandz, and the original is featured on French’s “Jungle Rules” Album. Previewed earlier on a few Radio stations locally and overseas, it was met with mostly positive reviews. Fame can really change a person, stay home with me.

Nothing like shooting a video in Jamaica, right? Well popular Reggaeton Artist Ozuna, and the “Queen Of The BX” a.k.a. “Bardi” a.k.a. Cardi B, released the visual to their latest collaboration titled “La Modelo” (Model). Directed by Dimelo Vi, and shot in Portland (including the World famous Trident Hotel), Ozuna stays fresh on the scene and gets cozy with Cardi while she oozes sex appeal in every scene. The video also features some great shots of the area throughout, and the addition of Dancers add to the vibe of the Dancehall inspired single. Fans will be pleased to hear Cardi singing a few notes as well. Cardi has been having an amazing year filled with Billboard top spots, Grammy Noms, and a lot of buzz coming her way. Ozuna continues to soar in stardom, and is riding high off the release of his latest EP, “Odisea“. Check out the visual below.
While many artists spent their money on a new ride or the latest fashion this summer, Bronx rapper Hop Cashay used his to help people. On September 7, 2013, Hop and 682 Varsity Ent. presented “Hop Cashay Day“. Sponsored by MicrophoneBully.com, it was all about food, family, fun and awareness. Kids were given school supplies, free haircuts, local rappers competed for studio time, and unity in the community was promoted. It was a successful one and Hop showed that you don’t have to be a millionaire to help people. Check out the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
Today’s entry comes from Bronx based rapper Hop Da Great. Titled, “In Too Deep“, this is his remake of the 1992 classic “Deep Cover” by Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre. In the video we see Hop and his crew chase down a bootlegger for selling unauthorized copies of his mixtape, “The Unusual Gift“. Short but cool video, haven’t seen a bootlegger themed rap video in a while, and Hop did well over the Deep Cover beat as it is a classic.
