SALUTE TO ASSEMBLY GENERALS!

"We gather every visionary guided by the truth. Welcome to the general assembly. Salute." - Assembly Generals The group classifies their music as 'Raw Electric Filipino Hip Hop' and is making a name in the scene since 2015 –with Paolo "Switch" Toledo, Raymund Marasigan, Deng Garcia and Mon Punzalan as members. Assembly Generals presents a much different take on Hip Hop but still rooted in the genre's good old style — influenced heavily by the sample-based drum production, lyrically poetic both in their English and Tagalog tracks and visually creative music videos. Their debut singles “Kontrabida” and “SakaLawakan” are included in their self-titled debut album that was released in 2015. Their recent single 'ABKD' tackles a lot about nationalism through celebrating the indigenized alphabet of the Philippines. Let them spit the words and tell you the true meaning of 'bars'. Aba aba kada banat ng mga bara Lumalabas ang letra Abakada bitaw nakalapag lahat sa mesa Tinulak ng serbesa Mula uno hanggang umabot na sa may sisenta Aba aba kada kumpas ako’y makata Aba kada talata Aba sa kada sulat magmula sa pagkabata Hindi namamayapa Sinabi ko na yata Aba kada sigaw ng tinubuan kong panata Abakada…Abakada...Abakada...

Machine Gun Kelly fires off new EP 'Binge' (his first project release since 2017’s Bloom) racing through nine tracks in just 24 minutes with Eminem diss track 'Rap Devil' —in which MGK blasts Em for holding a six-year grudge. Eminem finally fired back at MGK on his own song “Killshot,” which received rave reviews for it’s lethal shots. Then just hours later, with all eyes awaiting his response, MGK reacted to the song calling it “trash” & a 6 out of 10, before going onto to immediately announce a new EP right after that. “I’m standing up for not just myself, but my generation,” MGK said. “I’m doing the same shit you [Eminem] did back in your day. life is still real on my side, and I had to take time from the grind to defend myself from someone I called an idol.” Kelly has engaged in a very public, and largely entertaining, feud with Em, which exploded when Eminem released the track 'Killshot.” MGK said during an interview on The Breakfast Club.

RIHANNA NAMED 'EXTRAORDINARY & PLENIPOTENTIARY' AMBASSADOR OF BARBADOS

Rihanna has recently been named the “Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Ambassador” in her native country of Barbados. Barbadian Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley has nothing but praise for the songstress and all her accomplishments. She celebrates the manner in which Rihanna continues to strive towards the betterment of the world, and how she represents her island nation. She stated, "Rihanna has a deep love for this country and this is reflected in her philanthropy, especially in the areas of health and education. She also shows her patriotism in the way she gives back to Barbados and continues to treasure the island as her home." Although the statement did not go into detail about her full responsibilities or powers, Rihanna's new title includes the term “Plenipotentiary,” which is defined as “a person and especially a diplomatic agent invested with full power to transact business.” Merriam-Webster goes on to detail that “When government leaders dispatch their ambassador plenipotentiary…they are not just sending an agent to deal with foreign affairs but one having full power to act on the behalf of his or her country and government.” In accepting the honor, Riri shared, “I couldn't be more proud to take on such a prestigious title in my home country. Every Barbadian is going to have to play their role in this current effort, and I’m ready and excited to take on the responsibility." In 2008, Rihanna was appointed a Cultural Ambassador of Barbados, and she helped with philanthropic efforts for bringing tourists to her home island, and she is excited to take on a bigger role.

ICE CUBE UNVEILS COVER ART FOR NEW ALBUM ‘EVERYTHANG'S CORRUPT’

It's been over eight years since Ice Cube dropped an album and unfortunately, it didn't seem like one was coming. However, back in June, Cube participated in a fan Q & A on Twitter and promised it was coming before 2018 was up. The seasoned Hip Hop vet has been talking about this album for years but his crazy schedule got in the way and struggles to find a release date. “I had to put it down for a minute to finish these movies and make sure they were right,” he said in a 2016 interview. “To make sure Ride Along 2 was right, Barbershop and Straight Outta Compton – and this is going to be the end of it. I did a movie called Fist Fight. I just didn’t want to spread myself too thin. Finish these movies and finish this promotion and then finish the record and put it out.” Ice Cube took to social media to share the official cover art for his upcoming project, Everythang's Corrupt. The cover art features a bloody hang gripping a 100 dollar bill. Considering the current social and political climate, it seems as if we're going to hear Ice Cube get deeper into politics like he's done on some of his earlier work. He teased a Winter release by writing “Winter is coming…” Winter is coming... pic.twitter.com/F85FCoACfa— Ice Cube (@icecube) September 20, 2018
