C-Murder Found Guilty Of Murder


On a serious note, the Associated Press reports that C-Murder was found guilty today of second degree murder in the 2002 shooting of a 16-year-old inside a Lousiana nightclub. The verdict came after further deliberations on a questionable vote. Murder faces LIFE in prison. 

Update: The case is still open?

Update2: Nope he’s guilty again.

Puffy Needs This Just Blaze Track

 Just is the best!

Shock headline above. The real deal is that my buddy Justin usually stays up all night at Baseline Studios and makes beats to the point of exhaustion. Delirious this morning, he created two free beats that he sent through Twitter to his fanatic stans who have MC dreams. This one’s my pick, produced by Just and he spits on it too.

I’m tellin’ you I hear the foundation of a Last Train To Paris song here. Get Sean on the phone!

EW (No YN) is debutin’ rap videos now? What part of the game is this? SMH.

Watch EW’s exclusive premiere of the video for the track “Hey Playa (Moroccan Blues),” shot in Los Angeles and the Adelanto desert. Believe it or not, both the music and video was actually inspired by a recent trip the Travel Channel’s Bizarre Foods host Andrew Zimmern took to Morocco.

“When he [Zimmern] went to a restaurant,” says Quik. “There was a man playing music, the house musician. He had this little stringed instrument and was strumming it so in-tune with the environment — it was crazy. So I sampled it and put a beat to it and later, Andrew even liked it and let me put it in our music.”
