A third grader in Chicago may be forced to move away because the child has reportedly been receiving death threats from teenage rapper Lil Mouse. According to a FOX 32 News report, the eight-year old’s grandmother contacted authorities and stated that her grandson had been slapped and threatened by hip hop artist. “The students, the eighth graders have grouped up together…made a phone call and said he’s snitching, He need to get killed for snitching…One of the young men’s’ father threatened me outside the school. I wanna move [cause] he threatened me and I believe that he’s going to go through with it,” the woman told FOX 32 News. Lil Mouse has reportedly been charged with assault. “I wanna pack up and just go. I’ve already lost one child and I don’t want to lose another one,” the woman said. Her son was murdered in 2009.
Interview on “Sway In the Morning,” Brooklyn rapper Talib Kweli spoke about the recent controversies involving Lil Wayne and Rick Ross, and their losing corporate endorsements due to the public backlash against their lyrics. Kweli says that he didn’t want anyone to lose money.
“I feel like Lil Wayne and Rick Ross should get money. I was disappointed that they got dropped,” Talib told Sway. “I wish they would have came with stronger apologies sooner and kept they money. The reason I said something, I wanted them to keep their money. I don’t want to see no Black man lose nothing. These companies obviously don’t have our best interests in mind. They obviously don’t. It’s also a money thing. It’s a look. That’s also why you can’t say these artists aren’t hip-hop. You can’t say Lil Wayne and Rick Ross ain’t hip-hop. From the outside looking in, these men have dedicated their lives to the music. Whether you like their output or not, they represent hip-hop for millions of people and that can’t be fronted on.”
Scarface voiced his anger towards the current state of hip hop in an interview with HardKnockTV. The Southern rap pioneer explained why he feels White music executives have tainted the genre. “I feel like we losing it,” Face said in the clip. “I feel like the people that are in control of what Hip Hop does is so f**king White and so f**king Jewish and so they don’t give a f**k about what the culture and the craft really is about.”
“Let me say this sh*t right because I want this to be as offensive as I can f**kin’ make it for these old-ass punks that’s running these record labels that’s in the powerful positions to dictate what the Black community hears and listens to. I f**king hate that sh*t. That sh*t pisses me off,” he added. “There’s no f**king way that you can tell me that it’s not a conspiracy against the Blacks in Hip Hop. You put out f**king records that make us look stupid. You make us look dumb. You brainwash a generation of Hip Hoppers with this f**king crud and then when these other rappers come out, splitting it down the middle, these other rappers’ sh*t sound like ‘Wow!’ Y’all look great!’ ‘Y’all look stupid!’ … Then motherf**kers start going over here and pretty soon, Hip Hop is White now.”
DJ Premier recently explained just how connected Hip Hop artists can be. In an interview with experienced A&R Jeff Sledge for Al Lindstrom, Premier described his friendship with Tupac and his observations of Jay-Z’swork ethic. ”We knew Pac before he bubbled,” the Gang Starrproducer explained. “We knew him when he was going through his drama and we remained really close friends.” ”We were really there, at their house, throwing wild parties. Before Pac even dropped [1992's]‘Trapped,’ we were hanging out with Pac like that,” he added. Premier also recalled an experience where Tupac used the crowd to protest when he did not receive payment for a show. According to Premier, Pac went on stage saying, ”Yo, they ain’t got my mothafuckin’ money and I want y’all to tear this place up right now!” Premier also shared memories of watching Jay-Z in the studio. He recalled seeing Jay go from a session with Too Short for “A Week Ago” to a session with him for “A Million and One Questions (Remix),” running back and forth between takes. ”His success is well deserved,” Premier stated in the interview. “He busts his ass.”

DJ Premier worked with Jay-Z on the aforementioned track but he has also produced others songs for Hova including “D’Evils,” “Friend or Foe” and “So Ghetto.” In 2010, Greg Nice told HipHopDX’s Jake Paine about a collaboration between Tupac and DJ Premier. ”Yeah,” he said, confirming their collaboration. “And [DJ Premier] loved [Tupac] as well. To the point where that’s all he talks about.”
