KillerHipHop recently had the opportunity to pick the brain of entertainment attorney and owner of The Source Magazine, Londell McMillan. The iconic hip hop brand has celebrated 25 years of influencing the culture, and anticipates to continue doing so, so long as hip hop lives. In light of sustaining longevity in the ever-so-fickle media industry, Londell and his dedicated team at The Source are leveraging their influence to bring together all participants in the hip hop community to celebrate the culture at the inaugural Source 360 Annual Expo. The 3-day event kicks off this Friday 9/19 in Downtown Brooklyn’s Cultural Center, touching terrain from LIU to Barclay’s and all that’s in between. The festivities are to include a film festival, block party, panelists discussing topics from politics to technology, a concert headlined by all living members of The Wu-Tang Clan…need we say more?

New Jersey’s hip-hop scene is very limited right now. Joe Budden & Redman are the only relevant rappers still walking around this game. As the new generation is emerging onto the scene, a Cuban by the name of Willy Gonza from the streets of North Bergen, New Jersey has been the talk of the town lately.
Scholarich Music Group and Lyfestyle Clothing held their 2nd annual Toy and Book Drive on Dec 12 at Santos Party House in New York City. The event fulfilled a dual purpose – to promote a great cause and celebrate talented artists alike. 600 books and 50 toys were collected over the course of the evening, all of which were donated to a Brooklyn-based Help USA shelter.
Scholarich’s CEO Kamau “Moose” Harper and Australian media personality Simone “Boss Lady” Amelia did the honors of hosting us, and KillerHipHop’s DJ Eric Kidd provided the tunes. This year, Scholarich enlisted a slew of acts to entertain all in attendance, including SMG artists themselves – SongBird, Von Rich, Money Meech and Chewy Garcia – along with songstress Lydia Caesar, G4SHI, Skyzoo, Slim Dollars, SheIsRyan and Grammy nominee Mack Wilds to headline the festivities.
Behind the scenes, KillerHipHop’s Alana had the opportunity to chop it up with the artists who graced the stage. Take a look at our exclusives with the incredibly talented lineup of performers above, and hit the jump for a video recap of Scholarich and Lyfestyle’s successful event.
You’ve seen his name grace our killer pages before, and for Bizzy Crook, the year 2013 has been something like what 1984 meant to Michael Jordan. The Miami native is on the brink of materializing his dreams. We had the pleasure of choppin it up with Bizzy during one of his most recent trips to New York City, a frequent destination for the rising artist. We talked about his latest mixtape ’84, his recent single “No Reason,” his experience working with the connoisseur of Country Grammar himself, Nelly, plus Jermaine Dupri, Pharrell, and much more. Bizzy’s slated to drop a follow-up to his latest mixtape entitled ’84: Off Season – a compilation of tracks that didn’t make the cut for ’84 - on 12/27, along with his next major installment P.S. I’m Sorry 3: No Hard Feelings come February-March of 2014. We’ll keep you posted, but til then check out our exclusive interview below, and thank you again to Bizzy and his team for linking up with us.
