  1. Voting is a fundamental right that every citizen deserves and should exercise as well. Believe it or not, but the entire nation's fate depends on the tiny mark of blue ink on your finger. Even our political leaders understand this, which is why they are busy with election campaigns and urging people to vote. Reuters PM Modi is also busy with the election campaign and almost a month ago, he had urged people (actors, cricketers and many prominent sports personalities) from all walks of life, to encourage their fans and followers to vote. In one of those tweets, PM Modi asked Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan and Karan Johar to "creatively ensure high voter awareness and participation in the coming elections." Now, actor Shah Rukh Khan has responded to PM Modi's message and came up with a rap song, 'Karo Matdan', requesting people to go and vote in the ongoing Lok Sabha 2019 elections. YouTube/ Red Chillies Entertainment The song is not only peppy, but also brings to surface a talent in SRK that we weren't aware of - rapping. He wrote, "PM sahib @narendramodi ne creativity ki liye bola tha. Main thoda late ho gaya video banane mein...aap mat hona Vote karne mein!!! 'Voting is not only our Right, it is our Power.' Please Use It. Thank u to @tanishkbagchi @abbyviral @parakramsinghr." PM sahib @narendramodi ne creativity ki liye bola tha. Main thoda late ho gaya video banane mein...aap mat hona Vote karne mein!!! 'Voting is not only our Right, it is our Power.' Please Use It. Thank u to @tanishkbagchi @abbyviral @parakramsinghr . https://t.co/9280i8BnK3 — Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) April 22, 2019 PM Modi too replied to the song and called it a "fantastic effort." He wrote, "I am sure the people of India, especially first time voters will pay heed to your appeal and come out to vote in large numbers." Fantastic effort, @iamsrk! I am sure the people of India, especially first time voters will pay heed to your appeal and come out to vote in large numbers https://t.co/y2OLgrwOOS — Chowkidar Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) April 22, 2019 Honestly, after listening to this song, we can't wait for a rap face-off between SRK and the OG 'Gully Boy' Ranveer Singh.
  2. I feel Lilly Singh is one of the OG YouTubers and while a lot of them have become very irrelevant now, iiSuperwomanii is still giving everyone original content and that too on top of getting her own 'Late Night' show. Yes, I know she's Canadian and not Indian but she's still desi - and fully embraces that - and it's a win for us also okay, thanks. Coming back to her videos, she just released a video that could end Bollywood. Not really, but it's pretty great. So, she reimagined a few Bollywood songs as raps and changed the lyrics up to make them so relatable, it's uncanny. Starting off with 'Choli Ke Peeche', she raps about body positivity and self-love. And, that dig at Fair and Lovely just made my day. Next comes 'All Is Well' and a rap about mental health and a lot of desi problems. Obviously, this had to be there. Last song was 'Aankh Maarey' and she turned it into a Bi-Anthem and it's so beautiful to see that. And, yes she did make the 'one more remix' joke. Here's the video: As soon as it released, people coudn't stop raving about it, obviously, because it's just so great. For sure. this is insane oh my god. besides all the amazing acting, rapping, production and editing, THE MESSAGE. the underlying messages!! you're a genius @IISuperwomanII one of your best videos for sure. https://t.co/lTiu2WkVMQ — ð¼ðªð½ð¿ð²ð´ðª â¡ (@singhxstark) March 28, 2019 So original.

  3. In the list of million names who turned rappers and started singing 'Apna Time Aayega' after watching Ranveer Singh's 'Gully Boy', there's a new name that got added today. The person we're talking about is WWE star John Cena, whose latest post has sent his and Ranveer's fans in a frenzy. © Excel Entertainment "Welcome to my Instagram. These images will be posted without explanation, for your interpretation. Enjoy." This is not us. This is John Cena's Instagram bio and let's just say he's never disappointed us, neither earlier nor today. Cena shared a still from 'Gully Boy' with Ranveer Singh's image and 'Apna Time Aayega' written on it. View this post on Instagram A post shared by John Cena (@johncena) on Mar 6, 2019 at 9:35pm PST We don't think this post needs any explanation, but we sure want to know what Cena's first reaction was after watching the movie (if he has seen it, that is). Given that Cena too is known for his incredible rapping skills, we hope they get into a rap battle soon. Directed by Zoya Akhtar, 'Gully Boy' is based on Mumbai's underground rap scenario and also stars Alia Bhatt, Siddhant Chaturvedi (as MC Sher) and Vijay Varma (as Moeen Bhai).
  4. After 'Gully Boy' happened, a number of artists came under the limelight - some for their acting chops, and some for their rapping gift. While Siddhant Chaturvedi and Vijay Varma fall under the former, rappers like Divine and Naezy belong to the latter. One cutthroat rapper in particular who made the headlines, more so because of 'destroying' Raftaar in a rap battle, is Emiway Bantai. While people can't stop praising his fierce rap game, most don't know that his style game is inimitable as well. Here are 10 pictures which prove that. 1. Leather and plaid - talk about power-packed pairings. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Emiway Bantai (@emiway_bantai) on Feb 14, 2019 at 10:20pm PST 2.

  5. Ranveer Singh's 'Gully Boy' has turned everyone into a rapper, a skill people didn't know they had until they saw the movie. The latest addition in the list of 'talented yet lesser known' rappers is 'Dhadak' actor Ishaan Khatter. © Instagram While everyone is loving Murad (played by Ranveer Singh), MC Sher (Siddhant Chaturvedi) and Safeena (Alia Bhatt) from the movie, Ishaan's favourite character is actually Moeen Bhai (played by actor Vijay Varma) and he paid a tribute to his favourite character in the most kickass style possible. © Excel Entertainment Ishaan posted a video on social media today of his slaying the Moeen style rap and wrote, "Moeen bhai bole machao toh majboori thi, kya? In honour of one of my favourite films in a long time and Moeen bhai, one of @zoieakhtar 's best characters. Thank you @itsvijayvarma for making him a flesh and blood human being. @ranveersingh @aliaabhatt @siddhantchaturvedi @ozajay straight up gangstas." View this post on Instagram Moeen bhai bole machao toh majboori thi, kya? In honour of one of my favourite films in a long time and Moeen bhai, one of @zoieakhtar 's best characters. Thank you @itsvijayvarma for making him a flesh and blood human being. @ranveersingh @aliaabhatt @siddhantchaturvedi @ozajay straight up gangstas ð£ A post shared by Ishaan Khatter (@ishaan95) on Feb 20, 2019 at 7:56pm PST Well, now this is what we call a 'What a Wow' rap. Recently, actor Will Smith too was seen showering praises for Ranveer Singh, after watching 'Gully Boy'.
  6. Try tossing any idea or concept towards Amul and you can trust them to blow your minds away with their creativity. Time and again they have proved why people love their creative side more than their butter. Recently, they won or should we say cried together with millions of hearts, by paying homage to the CRPF jawans martyred in the deadly Pulwama terror attack. Earlier, they paid tribute to Vicky Kaushal's 'Uri' by showing everyone the 'Makhan Ka Josh'. #Amul Topical: Homage to our CRPF martyrs... pic.twitter.com/Q6mEl3eV7I — Amul.coop (@Amul_Coop) February 15, 2019 Now, Amul has won praises from people for their take on Ranveer Singh's blockbuster movie 'Gully Boy'. The illustration shows Alia, Ranveer and Siddhant's characters posing with butter and a slice of bread in their hands. Amul's version of 'Apna Time Aayega' is the only anthem that matter for every foodie out there - 'Apna Time Hai...Khayega!" #Amul Topical: Film 'Gully Boy' connects with audiences! pic.twitter.com/hWiGIatQ7E — Amul.coop (@Amul_Coop) February 18, 2019 Alia Bhatt even posted about the same on social media. Even before its release, 'Gully Boy' had blockbuster written all over it and now that it has hit the theatres, the movie has lived up to the expectations quite well. Apart from Ranveer Singh, people are also loving the performances of Alia Bhatt, Siddhant Chaturvedi, Vijay Raaz and Vijay Varma in this movie directed by Zoya Akhtar.
  7. Divided by veg and chicken; united by the love for biryani. This Uber Eats #EatMatchLove rap battle shows why there's no room for judgement when it comes to your matchmaking with food.
  8. You know how sometimes something very absurd and unexpected happens and you're convinced you're in the weirdest timeline? Well, the Indian political parties are doing exactly that right now and I'm like 98% sure we really are in some alternate universe, and it's because of all the rap videos and memes by BJP, Congress, and AAP which are flooding the social media. We all know the elections are coming, so basically, BJP released what seems like a 'Gully Boy'-inspired rap video calling out Congress and its party head Rahul Gandhi. Parties directly targeting each other is not unusual and thanks to social media, we are all a part of it now and honestly, this year's elections will be a social media battle that will give everyone a lot of second-hand embarrassment. Coming back to the rap, it's straight up called 'Congress Se Azadi' so no one accidentally misses the point. With lyrics like 'Baaki poor desh doobe, inki naiya paar hai na' and 'akela insaan fir gaadi teri chaar kyun? Ghar me hain chaar fir room tere aath kyun?', it's hard to miss that BJP has gone all out in calling out the entire Gandhi family. While @RahulGandhi will stay up all night wondering what new lies to peddle tomorrow morning, we leave you with this goal for 2019. Have a happy friday night, people! :) pic.twitter.com/WOXOJ1QPYO — BJP (@BJP4India) February 8, 2019 And, it obviously ended with Modiji, of course. Then comes Congress' reply and it's literally the last thing anyone would ever expect. Remember the new meme involving Nancy Pelosi sarcastically clapping at Donald Trump? Yep, Congress used that viral gif. pic.twitter.com/7OOgHG75Za — Congress (@INCIndia) February 8, 2019 And, looks like AAP didn't want to be left behind, so they just chimed in with this- pic.twitter.com/WvTmEvhUqF — AAP (@AamAadmiParty) February 8, 2019 Honestly, what is even happening anymore? Someone even pointed out the hypocrisy. A song which has a chorus of the slogans chanted by JNU students during protests. You know, the same ones which BJP folks considered a seditious act? Now Bhakts are like, "Oh hey, such a cool rap to diss the Congress! Yaaay!" https://t.co/KjNCeepXVi — that civics guy (@Memeghnad) February 9, 2019
  9. Last year, PM Narendra Modi was announced as the world's most followed leader across all social media platforms. In fact, his social media presence and active response to his followers' tweets and posts speaks volumes about why so many people follow him. Even today, no other leader (not even Donald Trump) gets to enjoy such fame and popularity on social media, or so we thought. © Wikimedia Sorry to break this news to you PM Modi, but, West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee has successfully managed to dethrone you and has now become the biggest rage on social media. From being a favourite fodder for memes to getting weird hashtags to trend, Mamata Didi (as people lovingly call her) is breaking the internet like a boss. © Twitter While she is currently busy protesting against the Central government and PM Modi is meeting people from the Bollywood fraternity; people on social media are busy making hilarious memes and parody videos on these two. One such video is this what I like to call 'Didi Ka Gussa', which has started doing the rounds on the internet once again, thanks to an FB page called 'Unofficial PMO India'. This video is pure gold and PM Modi's rap is even better. Can we say, PM Modi is a better rapper than 'Gully Boy' Ranveer Singh? After watching this video I am sure you will agree with me. The video also has a cameo of Rahul Gandhi and Lalu Prasad Yadav.
  10. After becoming only the fourth Indian captain to win the ICC U-19 World Cup, Prithvi Shaw has established his reputation as one of the most promising young talents in the country. His exploits in the U-19 World Cup and domestic circuit fast-tracked him into the Indian team where he announced his arrival on the international circuit with a brilliant hundred on debut. His natural talent and artistry with the willow further saw him becoming a part of the Indian cricket team that toured Australia. But, while many expected young Shaw to shine Sachin Tendulkar Down Under, the Mumbai wonderkid unfortunately suffered an ankle injury that ruled him out of the Test series that was eventually won by his side in emphatic fashion. Since then, Shaw has been nursing his injury as India continues their tour of New Zealand. And, on 31st January, when his U-19 teammate Shubman Gill made his international debut in the 4th ODI at the Seddon Park, Shaw was seen taking inspiration from Ranveer Singh's viral rap song 'Apna Time Ayega' from his upcoming flick 'Gully Boy'. View this post on Instagram Aapna Time Aayega... Injury se Fit Hoke.... Mein Aur Run Banayega... Apna Time Aayega... #gullycrickettointernationalcricket 𤣠A post shared by MR. SHAW (@prithvishaw) on Jan 30, 2019 at 8:36am PST The 19-year-old took to Instagram and shared a photo of himself, holding the iconic MRF willow. Using the verse of Ranveer's song, Shaw captioned the image: "Aapna time ayega...Injury se fit hoke...Mein Aur Run Banayega...Apna Time Ayega". Making his debut in 2018 in the first Test of the home series against West Indies, Shaw made an immediate impact with a commendable hundred. He, then, followed it up with 103 runs in the second Test. In the two Tests he played, Shaw amassed 237 runs to eventually bag the 'Man of the Series' award. He was then prepping up for a stern test in Australia, but his injury ruled him out of the Test series. Since then, the young gun has been nursing his injury and recovering well, but he's still not fit enough to feature for India. While no comeback date has been set for him yet, Shaw recently told India TV that he would be fit for the twelfth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) where he will be seen donning Delhi Capitals' jersey.
  11. While we haven't even completely recovered from the 100-cr storm that was 'Simmba', which is still roaring as loud as possible at the box office, actor Ranveer Singh is back in action as an uber cool rapper who is here to show the world what 'asli hip hop' is, in the trailer announcement of 'Gully Boy'. View this post on Instagram â¤ð§ #GullyBoy #14thFeb @ritesh_sid @zoieakhtar @faroutakhtar @excelmovies #TigerBaby @aliaabhatt @zeemusiccompany A post shared by Ranveer Singh (@ranveersingh) on Jan 1, 2019 at 8:01pm PST From playing the cruel and mad king, Alauddin Khilji in 'Padmaavat' to playing the corrupt-turned-nice cop in 'Simmba', Ranveer Singh is inarguably one of the finest and the most versatile actors in Bollywood. While both the movies continue to rule the box office, if the trailer announcement of 'Gully Boy' is anything to go by, then he might just make a hat-trick of giving back-to-back blockbusters. View this post on Instagram The voice of the streets. #GullyBoy #14thFeb @ritesh_sid @zoieakhtar @faroutakhtar @excelmovies #TigerBaby @aliaabhatt @zeemusiccompany A post shared by Ranveer Singh (@ranveersingh) on Jan 1, 2019 at 7:30pm PST The video begins with Ranveer, who goes from being an underdog rapper on the streets on Mumbai to a big shot in the world of rap and Hip Hop, taking us though his life, journey and people around him and struggles he overcomes to fulfill his dream. The movie also stars Alia Bhatt and Kalki Koechlin and it will be interesting to see how the equations change, in what looks like a love-triangle. In case, you didn't know, 'Gully Boy' is based on the lives of real people and in particular the rapper, Divine. While Ranveer's fans love him for his versatility and insane levels of energy, his wife Deepika Padukone too is extremely proud of Ranveer. When Ranveer shared the 'Gully Boy' trailer announcement news, Deepika was one of the first few to comment and she wrote, "You are unstoppable," and "I love you & I am so proud of you." Directed by Zoya Akhtar, the official trailer of 'Gully Boy' will drop on 9th January and the movie will release on February 14.
  12. Kaun banega ultimate rap champion? It's Badshah vs Ankush Bahuguna. Who do you think will win? Let's find out...
  13. A self-proclaimed Badshah fan who followed him from his 'Mafia Mundeer' days, it was only natural for me to hyper-ventilate and check the mirror twice before I entered the room where we then sat face-to-face for an editorial interview. I imagined it to be intriguing, slightly overwhelming and overtly exciting, but the moment I said a 'Hi' to him, the warmth of his smile overshadowed the air conditioning in the studio. Not many people know, but the real name of this crowned king of Bollywood's music scenes is Aditya Prateek Singh Sisodia. Earning a bad name A post shared by O.N.E. OUT NOW! (@badboyshah) on Aug 7, 2018 at 6:40am PDT My first question was the clichéd 'how did music happen because you were studying engineering' but his answer was anything but conventional. 'No, I was actually doing music, and then engineering happened', he laughed as he corrected my question and my perception. He explained that he was always interested in doing music and his parents were super supportive about his decision to pursue the same. My second question was something I always imagined I'd personally ask if I ever get to meet him in person. “Why did you choose the name 'Badshah'?” “I am a big SRK fan, and when I was looking for a stage name for myself, around that time the movie 'Baadshah' released and I thought why not take this name only.” I kind of guessed it but I never knew this was a fact actually! Our conversation then moved to his journey from where he began and his current state of being omnipresent in the music scene today. One might expect that he has a long struggle story to share and there is more depth to it but the king was pretty honest and blunt about it and kept it very short. “I never went to people for work. I was just making my own music and releasing it through my own label. Eventually Bollywood stood up and noticed me.” The best part of his humble journey is that he was working full time in order to invest money in his music career, no godfathers or no money flew in for this self-made star. © Instagram Talking about his biggest critics, he quipped that his sister, his immediate circle of friends and his close knit group of cousins are the first lot who hear his music first hand and give their honest inputs which he values a lot. In case you don't know, he is actually a 'Dilli wala' who lived in Pitampura and even went to St. Stephens for a month before he opted out. His favourite thing about Delhi is the food, no guesses there. My favourite part about the interview began when I asked him to share the whole ideology behind his music. I asked him how the songs are conceived and what the creative process behind it is, including the inspiration to two of my personal favourites, 'Tareefan' and 'Buzz'. “I think of myself as a journalist. I write what I see”, he quickly responded to it. So he said that he picks up the vibe from his surroundings and finds inspiration from real-life situations. Also, one might think that no party is complete without his music, so probably the rapper is a party lord himself. However, he busted the myth when he told me that he never really parties! He then went on to tell me that the lyrics in 'Buzz', the line where he starts with 'Okay, Okay Okay, Okay' is actually inspired from Kevin Hart, who he ardently follows and who uses it in some of his songs. 'Tareefan' is a love song for Badshah, not a dance song. The inspiration for this song was also very simple. He said boys get ready quickly and wait for their girl to get ready, who only wants to know how is she looking, so a guy got nothing else to do but say 'hor dass kinniyan tareefan chahida tainu'? I asked him if he has any Bollywood plans for himself and he answered with a big “yes”. A fun fact that he shared with me is that he was offered two projects already which didn't work out. He was offered 'Good News' which later went to Diljit Dosanjh and he was also offered a part in 'Lust Stories', the role which was eventually played by Vicky Kaushal. We all laughed at this new found information and he chimed in. Talking about his future plans, we then spoke about his latest album 'O.N.E' which released today. It has 17 songs but he originally wrote 30 and is super excited about it. His song 'Heartless' from the album has already created a lot of buzz (pun intended!). When I asked him what he would say to so many millennials struggling to balance between getting a degree and pursuing a passion, he had a very practical and simple message for them. “I think you just have to be very smart about it and don't be foolish. Perseverance is very important because music is very liberating. However, you need to see how it will work out, you also have to feed yourself after all. I was working twice as hard when I was earning to invest in my music career.” If there is anything you can take away from this King, then it is the fact that there is so much more to learn from him than just make good music. I hope he keeps entertaining us for the longest time! We sign off and end the interview with a smile, a picture for memory and me beaming with joy as I walk out of the studio.
  14. George RR Martin started writing 'A Song of Ice and Fire' back in 1991, but the title of the series has finally started making sense. No, if you thought it was in reference to the dragons and the north, then you are absolutely mistaken. That title was nothing but a build up for truly the greatest advertisement ever. And, there are so many reasons why it's the best thing you will ever watch. First of all, it features Tyrion Lannister going head to head with God himself, and it looks like he demanded a trial by rap instead of combat this time. While most of us wouldn't really care about the Super Bowl here, the ads for it are something that we can fully enjoy, especially when it features Peter Dinklage and Morgan Freeman having an epic rap battle of all things. The ad is basically a joint promotion of Doritos Blaze and Mountain Dew Ice, and they honestly outdid themselves by casting a 'Game of Thrones' actor. What a brilliant representation. Peter Dinklage is on the side of the fiery Doritos Blaze while Morgan Freeman showcases the coolness of Mountain Dew Ice on the other. The 'Game of Thrones' star bravely tackles Busta Rhymes' verse in the Chris Brown song 'Look at Me Now.' Moreover, the rapper himself makes an appearance inside a picture frame as Dinklage's coach. As soon as the actor takes a bite of the Doritos, the whole room is covered in flames as he turns up the heat. Not the one to be burned out, Morgan Freeman gives the perfect response by lip syncing Missy Elliott's 'Get Ur Freak On', and it's the coolest thing you will ever see, and yes, pun totally intended. And, obviously Missy Elliott makes an appearance as Freeman's mentor, dressed as an ice queen with bright green lipstick. Side note – is this some kind of confirmation that Tyrion Lannister is in fact a Targaryen? He does seem very comfortable with fire. And, while we're on the topic, could this be considered Morgan Freeman's audition to be one of the white walkers? He would totally kill it. Check out the epic rap battle and the best ad ever:
  15. If you call yourself a die-hard fan of Tom Hardy, then you must already know that being an actor was not always his aim. It was to become a successful rapper. Since his teenage days, Hardy spent a significant amount rapping but he wasn't exactly what one could call 'good' back in the day. But he still likes to drop beats whenever he can, even if it's with his son. In an interview with BBC back in 2011, he also revealed that he recorded albums too but unfortunately they never got to see the light of the day. That is until now. A mixtape with the name 'Falling On Your Arse In 1999' was uploaded to Bandcamp earlier this month by DJ Eddie Too Tall aka Ed Tracy. Edward is a BAFTA-winning television writer and director. © Bandcamp If you are wondering who the hell is 'Tommy No. 1' in this cover art, then we take pride in telling you that that is our very own Tom Hardy.

  16. Russell Simmons recently left his business empire following allegations of sexual misconduct. ? AFP NEW YORK: At least three women say that they were raped by hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons, who recently left his business empire following abuse allegations, The New York Times reported Wednesday. The 60-year-old hip-hop legend denied the rape accusations -- which date back to 1988 -- and voiced support for the growing movement of women speaking out against abusive men. Simmons announced on November 30 that he was stepping down from his business roles after two women accused him of assault, which he also denied. But The New York Times article described an alleged pattern of behaviour by the enormously influential Def Jam Recordings co-founder, who was accused of preying on women entering the industry. Tina Baker, a singer who has performed back-up for Madonna and Bruce Springsteen, said Simmons was her manager when he invited her to his apartment in 1990 or 1991. Actress Salma Hayek details harrowing ordeal by 'monster' Weinstein She told the newspaper that he pinned her down and raped her. The Times said the account was confirmed by four people close to her including her ex-husband and therapist. Baker told the newspaper that she didn?t have a physical contact with a man for almost nine years afterwards. "I went into a cocoon." Simmons denied having physically abused Baker. He said in a statement: "I vehemently deny all these allegations." "I have accepted that I can and should get dirt on my sleeves if it means witnessing the birth of a new consciousness about women," he said. Unlike many in the brash world of hip-hop, Simmons in recent years has developed a clean, spiritual image as he promotes yoga and veganism. But the newspaper also reported an incident in 2014 in which a woman said Simmons touched her inappropriately after encountering him in a Miami hotel. Simmons and fellow producer Rick Rubin helped bring hip-hop to wide US audiences in the 1980s when they founded Def Jam, a label that signed major acts such as the Beastie Boys, LL Cool J and later Public Enemy.
  17. US entrepreneur and producer Russell Simmons poses upon his arrival for the 25th annual Elton John AIDS Foundation's Academy Awards Viewing Party in West Hollywood, California, US, February 26, 2017. AFP/Tibrina Hobson/Files NEW YORK: Russell Simmons ? who helped bring hip-hop into the mainstream with Def Jam Recordings ? said Thursday he was quitting his business empire after fresh allegations of sexual abuse. The 60-year-old ? who unlike many in the rap world had until recently an uncontroversial public image ? disputed the latest claim against him but said he viewed the mounting public spotlight on sexual misconduct to be "a time of great transition". "The voices of the voiceless, those who have been hurt or shamed, deserve and need to be heard," Simmons said in a statement. "As the corridors of power inevitably make way for a new generation, I don't want to be a distraction so I am removing myself from the businesses that I founded," he said. The announcement came after Rachel Getting Married screenwriter Jenny Lumet said that Simmons assaulted her in 1991 when she was 24 and he was a decade older. Writing in The Hollywood Reporter, Lumet said Simmons forced her into his New York apartment, with his driver refusing her pleas to be taken to her own home, and had *** with her even though she said no. In his statement, Simmons said he remembered the evening differently but acknowledged that "her feelings of fear and intimidation are real". "While I have never been violent, I have been thoughtless and insensitive in some of my relationships over many decades and I sincerely and humbly apologize," he said. Simmons earlier denied accusations by model Keri Claussen Khalighi that he assaulted her in 1991 when she was 17. Simmons and fellow producer Rick Rubin founded Def Jam in the mid-1980s as hip-hop became a growing force, signing acts such as the Beastie Boys, LL Cool J, and later, Public Enemy, who brought rap to a wide US audience for the first time. Simmons also promoted Run-D.M.C., the trailblazing rap trio that included his brother Joseph. While stepping back from music production, Simmons has remained active in entertainment promotion with his Rush Communications firm. He also runs a fashion brand and a company of yoga apparel and studios. A yoga enthusiast himself, Simmons said that a "new and diverse generation" of executives would take over his companies and that he would turn a yoga studio into a "not-for-profit center of learning and healing". He has also been active in charities, notably supporting animal rights and advocating veganism.

  19. Eminem has an ultimatum for his fans – to support either him or US President Donald Trump. Yesterday, full-time life guru and part-time music producer DJ Khaled announced that Eminem would be freestyling during the BET Hip-Hop Awards. And, sure enough the 'Rap God' appeared in a multi-story car park surrounded by his entourage. He started off by slowly moving towards the camera, declaring this was the "calm before the storm". © Billboard Eminem verbally eviscerated Donald Trump in this 4-minute rap filmed in a Detroit carpark and was broadcasted at the Award Show. You can literally hear so much anger in the rapper's voice as he proceeds to comment on all the social and political issues. He gives props to Obama, and talks about Trump's current reign, the take a knee protests, tensions between the US and North Korea, and the treatment of different races. © Billboard “But we better give Obama props, Cause what we've got in office now's, A kamikaze that'll probably cause a nuclear holocaust,” he rapped. Referencing the orange superhero the Thing from the Fantastic Four comic books, he raps: “Racism's the only thing he's Fantastic Four / Cause that's how he gets his fucking rocks off and he's orange.” © Fox studios He concluded the fiery freestyle by talking about Trump's plans to build a wall between the US and Mexico, as well as addressing his fans who may support him. “Well if he does build it, I hope it's rock solid with bricks, 'cause like him and politics I'm using all of his tricks, 'cause I'm throwing that piece of shit against the wall 'till it sticks. And any fan of mine who's a supporter of his I'm drawing in the sand a line, you're either for or against, and if you can't decide who you like more in your spilt, or who you should stand beside, I'll do it for you with this... **** you.” © Billboard Eminem has always been vocal about his criticism of Trump, and with this rap, he even put his support behind the player Colin Kaepernick, who was first to take a knee which inspired widespread protests that have extended outside of football and enraged Trump in the process. Kaepernick was quick with his response.

  20. Lil Wayne Grammy-winning rap star Lil Wayne was taken to hospital on Sunday after suffering a seizure and being found unconscious in his Chicago hotel room, TMZ said on its web site. Lil Wayne, 34, who has become one of the biggest names in rap music over a two-decade career, suffered a second seizure at the hospital, TMZ added, and his representative confirmed to the site that he had suffered multiple seizures. Reuters could not reach representatives of the rapper to confirm the report. The incident comes more than a year after the rap star, whose Grammy wins include the best rap album award in 2008 for ?Tha Carter III,? was treated after suffering what his representatives called two minor seizures. Four years ago Lil Wayne, whose given name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr, spent several days at a Los Angeles hospital, after which he told radio station Power 106 he was epileptic and prone to seizures. Lil Wayne had been set to perform in Las Vegas late on Sunday night. The New Orleans-born rapper began his professional career aged nine, when he became the youngest artist to be signed by Cash Money Records.
  21. Music has often been a medium of dissent against the established systems. What better way to voice your opinion than through your music. Twenty-two-year-old JNU student Rahul Rajkhowa has done just that. He has made a rap song against the unfair seat cut in JNU and it’s going viral. © Facebook/Rahul Rajkhowa His protest is against the recent seat cut announced by JNU in research courses. The university has downsized the number of seats in research courses, a move that will directly affect many students, especially ones coming from economically weaker section backgrounds, who hope to pursue higher education from the university. “I am not the only one suffering. My entire batch has nowhere to go. We came here for Masters and thought we will complete our PhD from here but suddenly there are no seats. In my college, now there are only two seats for MPhil/PhD. Where will all the existing students go?” he asks. Rahul hails from Assam and has studied History from DU’s St. Stephen’s College and has done Masters in International Relations from JNU. His rap song has struck a chord with students aspiring to pursue higher education but limited by lack of seats in colleges. Rahul has used rap before to bring attention to the discrimination faced by people from the Northeast: More power to you, bro.
  22. Unless you have been vacationing in some secluded island with zero connectivity or sleeping till afternoon after a long night, you will know by now that today is Mother’s Day – a day when we should express our love for her, and help her relax by helping her with some chores. But that is the ideal situation and some of us are far from it. We are sure that most of us would either be watching TV, booking movie tickets or cribbing about Dal-Chawal for lunch instead of Chicken Biryani on a Sunday. © Hats Off Production For those who forgot to even wish their mothers, a simple gift won’t save your a**. So, quickly go and clean your rooms, organize your cupboard or give her your laptop and make her watch the nation’s ideal son, Rosesh Sarabhai’s rap song specially prepared for his momma. Maya Sarabhai’s “aankhon ka tara” has prepared this ultimate ‘Momma anthem’ called ‘Rosesh Ka DJwala Tribute’ is just the thing you need to make your mom’s day. © Hats Off Production Just to give you a fair idea of how creative and epic this song is, check this “O Momma, O Momma! Tumne mujhko janam diya, sabse achha karam kiya”…Or this, “Sab kuch hai Maya, Ye sofa ye Kaya, rishta bhi Maya, raasta bhi Maya, lunch dinner aur breakfast bhi Maya.” I hope you are taking notes guys because these are the words of an enlightened man who has unlocked the highest level to win his mother’s heart. Somewhere between ‘bloop bloop’ and comparing his momma to a raspberry, Rosesh Sarabhai has won our hearts and now that the entire Sarabhai family is making a comeback, we can’t wait to see the madness recreated onscreen again.

  23. NEW YORK: Jay Z´s fortunes jumped 30 percent last year to give him an estimated net worth of $810 million, but it was not enough to dethrone Sean "Diddy" Combs from the top of Forbes annual list on Wednesday of the world´s wealthiest hip hop artists. Combs retained his No. 1 spot with an estimated net worth of $820 million, helped by his lucrative deals with Ciroc vodka, and his Sean John clothing line, Forbes said. But rapper and producer Jay Z moved into second place with $810 million thanks largely to a $200 million investment in his Tidal music streaming service from wireless carrier Sprint in January. Forbes produced the list by looking at past earnings and financial documents, valuing current holdings, and talking to analysts, attorneys, managers, and other industry players. The top 5 was rounded out by Dr. Dre ($740 million), rapper and Cash Money Records co-owner Bryan "Birdman" Williams ($110 million), and Canadian rapper Drake with an estimated $90 million.

  24. SRINAGAR: Kashmiris are known to resist the Indian state aggression in the occupied valley. Be it with a gun in the hands of freedom fighters or stones with the university students. But surprisingly the Kashmiri youth have started to explore a new channel to vent out their dissent against New Delhi – Rap music. In a feature report by NPR music; Roushan Illahi - Kashmir's leading rapper opined that guns, soldiers, and protracted conflict provide the "street reality" that hip-hop is meant to capture. His song "Dead Eyes" released on the occasion of India`s 68th Republic Day focuses on the eye injuries that thousands of Kashmiris suffered due to pellet bullets fired by security patrols during anti-military demonstrations commenced after the assassination of Kashmiri freedom fighter, Burhan Wani. Aamir Ame co-wrote the viral hit "Dead Eye," a tribute to Kashmiris whose eyesight was damaged by pellet guns used by security forces to quell demonstrations. He calls it his first "political" song. - Picture credit: NPR music In the broad daylight, I got blind To light darkness, I will abide I will pelt stones against innocent felony Yeah, I lost my eyes while fighting tyranny Aamir Ame, 23, co-wrote the track with two other budding rappers. He says it was his "first political song, an example of survival." And it went viral in the valley. Their song “I Protest” has also made waves all across the occupied valley. I protest! Against the things you've done I protest! For a mother who lost her son I protest! I will throw stones and never run I protest! Until my freedom has come I protest! For my brother who's dead I protest! Against the bullet in his head "When I came out in 2010, I was very blunt, I was very direct," Illahi says. "And that's what another tenet of hip-hop or rapping is. If you talk to any one of us, there is a lot anger. That anger stems from this hopelessness that nothing is going to change or nothing is going happen to Kashmir or that people are still going to get killed. And it's bound to give birth to dissent." "It Shapes ... Your Personality" A musician in the valley, Ali Saifudin, believes that the reactionary music is because of the anger found within the Kashmiris against the Indian state. "It's just a natural sentiment, the sentiments on the streets," Saifudin says. "I see news of young men being shot, and I feel anger inside me ... I put all those feelings into a song." A guitarist, Saifudin says he's been influenced by the music of Neil Young, Bob Dylan and Bob Marley. (He says it was Google that introduced him to their music. Put your lungs out, Go on and scream For that's how you'll be heard This ain't the time to sleep Now wake up! Open your eyes! Take a deep breath And realize The time to talk is over It is time to do With whatever you got You got to make it through Enough with all the silence The crimes and violence The war outside And the war inside us... Anger is our voice, Rage drives us And we can't be controlled There is a beast inside us. His, this song was performed at Srinagar Cafe – a meeting point of young Kashmiri musicians. The audience for these young musicians is mostly online, as the venues in Indian-occupied-Kashmir are controlled by the state. Illahi, aka MC Kash, says he's "proud" of young musicians who are "keeping alive the memories of the Kashmiri people through their music." Illahi champions "a demilitarized Kashmir" and insists Kashmiris need to be able to "talk and feel free of any harassment or repercussions." He said that his studio was raided in 2010. But this taciturn artist no longer directly talks against the military establishment — he self-censors. "In Kashmir," he says, "you have to make your own space, and then rely on your luck that you won't get arrested." Today, Illahi's dissent is subtle. He has most recently teamed up with a rock musician in a piece called "Like A Sufi" that is part dreamy, part heart-pounding. The song captures the mysticism of Sufis, who make up a sect of Islam. But the subtext of the Kashmiri conflict is hard to miss in the opening lines: "I await you / All the fallen / In the garden of remembrance / Like a Sufi." The lyrics follow through: "Break free of the chains ... Twirling freedom, like a Sufi."
