Probably the hardest opening bars to a rap song ever, outside of Prodigy’s “There is a war going on outside , no man is safe from..” Shouts to Chuck D.
‘The tologist without the derma”. The most lyrical street hip hop record in history. Check out an appearance by Big L and peep Papoose at the 3:00.

Uh, base your eyes on the guy
That has no kind of worries if I die
So pussyclot try
Dangerfield stepping my way
Bodies get cremated on a Friday the do or die way
Your death threater, sender, head spinner
Rap beginner, light dimmer
Three knockout count winner
The gun reacher, busting shot teacher
Your funeral serving church preacher
Your black hearse coffin seeker
The body polluter, the gat shooter
The Brownsville wild Brooklyn trooper
The cock D mountain mover
The face basher, the Mister brain smasher
The ass waxer, the drug money stasher
Hip Hop History.
We talked to LL, Rick Rubin, Russell Simmons and everyone involved in making this historic rap record.
Celebrity Crime Files digs deep into the story of hugely successful life of now deceased Def Jam executive Shakir Stewart and the theory from his close family and friends that his was murdered and did not commit suicide. Strangely this is very similar to the case of Violator Management founder Chris Lighty whose family refutes he committed suicide as well.
Russell Simmons and Rick Rubin discussion on the impact of legendary group Public Enemy is accord with the 30th anniversary of hip hop powerhouse Def Jam. Still not feeling the omission of Professor Griff because he was integral to their success and him being left out is a travesty in itself. With that being said, Public Enemy changed the game, as Russell alludes to in this interview with Noisey for their Back and Forth series.
Bill O’ Reilly spars with Russell Simmons over Beyonce and proclaims she makes “exploitative garbage”. Wait to till he sees Rihanna’s ‘Pour It Up’ video, he might just have another one of his nuclear meltdowns on camera. Seriously Bill seems to be so late on these type of things, shit he should see some of the stuff Madonna did a 100 years ago and he might just have a heart attack. The ironic thing is this is the same guy who paid off a woman who accused him of sexual harassment at the workplace a number of years ago, and any time he goes on these tangents none of his guests ever bring it up. Instead of it being constructive interview about Russell’s new book ‘Success Through Stillness’, he masterfully spinned it to a conversation about Beyonce and had Russell on his heels once again. Though O’ Reilly proclaimed never to speak on his sexual harassment suit again, I would bet a dollar to a doughnut he is still that pervert, and knows every lyric to “Partition”.
Somebody get Def Jam on the line.
