Here's How Jay Z Is Celebrating The 20th Anniversary Of 'Reasonable Doubt'
Huffington Post - 8 months
"We invite you to something epic, you know?" Jay Z raps on 1996's "Reasonable Doubt," his groundbreaking debut album about the story of a hustler and a rapper on the rise.  Two decades later, his lyrics continue to reverberate in the voices of some of today's top artists -- Rihanna and Kanye West, for example -- having permanently altered the fabric of rap music history.  Saturday marks the 20th anniversary of "Reasonable Doubt," and to celebrate the album's legacy Jay and Roc-A-Fella Records co-founder Kareem “Biggs” Burke have collaborated on a unique fan experience to bring it back to where it all began: APT 4B.  Taking its name from Jay Z's 1990s apartment in the Marcy Projects, the Los Angeles pop-up concept shop modeled after the rapper's old digs will play home base to "Reasonable Doubt" T-shirts, hats cassettes, and more, as well as pieces from Burke's denim line Fourth of November.

Damon Dash: 'Hates That Coonin' Is Associated with the Dash Name'
Huffington Post - about 1 year
By now, you have probably already heard all of the conversations behind the hashtag #OscarsSoWhite and you have probably heard Stacey Dash discuss why Black History Month and BET and other minority media platforms are just as exclusionary as the Oscars. BET wasn't too happy when they heard Dash's comments and took to their own social media to remind the actress-turned-FOX News pundit that the African-American community has always supported her throughout her career. Entrepreneur and rap mogul Dame Dash, had a video interview with Dr. Boyce Watkins and shared his thoughts on his republican cousin. There is no reason for me to explain why her statements are damaging and it's clear she is well aware of what she is saying and who she is saying it to. Her position at FOX News is to pander to middle-aged white men that already have a narrow-minded view on African-Americans. She is eye-candy for the bigots and racists that long for the days where they openly show their lust for ...

The 10 Most Memorable Aaliyah Moments
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Hollywood tragically lost R&B star Aaliyah 12 years ago. The Brooklyn-born singer died in a plane crash on Aug. 25, 2001. She was flying home from the Bahamas, where she was on location filming her "Rock The Boat" music video. She was 22 years old. Aaliyah shined bright from a young age. She appeared on an episode of "Star Search" at 10 years old, then signed with Jive Records two years later. R. Kelly even served as a mentor during her earlier music career stages. She was a multi-talented triple threat. The Grammy-nominated R&B queen topped the charts with classics, including "Are You That Somebody" and "Try Again." She proved her acting chops with lead roles in "Romeo Must Die" and "Queen of the Damned." Her stunning beauty was recognized in a Tommy Jeans ad campaign.

Rachel Roy Reveals What Makes Kim K. A Good Friend
Huffington Post - over 4 years
We all have that one friend, who no matter what they wear (it could be an industrial-size garbage bag), they look amazing. And among New York Fashion Week's all-black wearing designers, Rachel Roy stands out in her mash-up of busy prints and ladylike demure -- surprisingly, it takes her less than an hour to get ready. "I don't plan too much in advance. It all depends on how I feel that morning," explains Roy. "I dress on emotion and let that lead the way for what I wear and how I do my hair and makeup. I like the feeling of being a chameleon." While the California-born beauty's style has certainly transformed since her days as the midriff-donning wife of Roc-A-Fella Records co-founder Damon Dash, one thing that has remain consistent is her knack for effortlessly mixing and matching -- a skill she admits her oldest daughter has helped her to perfect. "Ava wears a lot of my RACHEL Rachel Roy collection -- she's a muse to me with how she mixes it," says Roy. "I reall ...

MTV News - over 4 years
By Adrian Prelvukaj While most of urban America—or, at least NYC residents—were worrying about securing tickets to watch Jay-Z perform at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center this fall, the Roc Nation CEO was being targeted in a new lawsuit. Bronx clothing designer Dwayne Walker claims that Hov and his former Roc-A-Fella record label partners owe him $7 million in unpaid royalties for designing the infamous Roc-A-fella label logo. New York Daily News reports that on Thursday (July 12) a copyright infringement suit was filed in Manhattan Federal Court stating that Dwayne Walker created the logo which features the letter R, a record and a champagne bottle.“The logo has become universally recognized as an iconic symbol of Jay-Z, one of the most successful recording artists in the history of popular music,” the suit says. Roc-A-Fella Records was a revolutionary record label that started out back in 1995, which is when Walker claims that he came up with the logo. Walker also added that he act ...

Alexandra Holzer: New York Never Sleeps Because Noel Ashman Won't Let It! (PHOTOS)
Huffington Post - over 4 years
New York City Nightlife 30-plus years ago danced to a different beat. The progressive change of club hopping from one place to the next hasn't switched course. A fellow New Yorker that is an entrepreneur, film producer and nightclub owner, Noel Ashman, who has been reported by The New York Post as, "One of the five most important people in New York" knows a thing or two about where the party's at. A product of the '70s, Noel grew up living in Manhattan with the Prep school attendance as a must, and he began his independence and interest in promotion and nightlife development early on. "We would get flyers printed up, maybe 100, and pass them out for the keg party. Once we hosted a party and what seemed like tens of thousands of these preppy kids just showed up along the streets. Then the cops came to shut it down," Noel tells me. He goes on to say that big names started to hear about the "noise" he was making and it spiraled upward from there. "It is important to keep t ...

Tom Murro: Chris Noth and Other Notables Enjoy Some Hip-Hop at a NYC Birthday Bash
Huffington Post - over 4 years
On Thursday June 21, I convinced my wife Kelly to join me at Xvi Rooftop in NYC for a joint birthday party thrown for nightclub hot shot Noel Ashman, and 90210 actor Vincent Young. Once we arrived at the club, the voyage to the roof was trickier than expected as my wife and I were initially blocked by a large goon, I mean security, until Ashman sent his assistant Nicole down to pass off two golden tickets that lead us through a maze of dark black hallways, then up the elevator to our final destination, the rooftop. Making our way through the sea of people, we found Vince Young, a cool guy, not just because he was throwing it to Tori Spelling in the original 90210 series, but because he's always making himself available for various charity events. Vince has also kept himself busy with various acting projects, and recently scored a hilarious roll in the film Eagles on the Chicken Coop. Then a familiar face in the crowd, one we've all seen in like 100 TV movies and f ...

All Hip Hop - about 5 years
Came across this video... Dame is very serious on hustling his way to a billion dollars, while in the background Jay's busy with Beyonce &amp; the whole BP2... but if you notice Lyor riding around made me believe, just maybe he was playing chess to win Jay-Z over and hence the Roc break up. Maybe i'm reaching on that level but hat's off to Dame's beliefs back then, the Roc was on fire no doubt.
