The idea of documenting the behind-the-scenes of what really goes on in Hip-Hop and the music industry is very interesting. N.O.R.E. and Geno Sims took that idea and started filming. What you see in this video is NSFW but surely gives you an eye opening of real behind-the-scenes life of a famous rapper during the late 90s/early 00s.
There’s random bits of Big Pun, KRS One, Eminem making crank calls, Snoop Dogg at his most misogynistic, a chubby 50 Cent coveting NORE’s then-new Skytel 2-way pager…There’s Jay-Z and Amil, Capone in prison, De La Soul….and at the 2:25 mark, we see Cam’ron shopping his new 17-year-old artist Juelz Santana to Chris Lighty (RIP) and his staff. Amazing. -Miss Info

DMX gets in the festive mood by singing his version of the Christmas carol “Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer”.
Video: BET Hip-Hop Awards Cypher Spoof (Ft. Kendrick Lamar, Waka Flocka, Rick Ross, Big Sean, Jay-Z & DMX)
The BET Hip-Hop Award cyphers are always the most popular part of the show. This year, Grand Hustle, Mac Miller, A$AP Rocky, Hopsin, and Childish Gambino participated in the cyphers. Comedian Justin Hires and his comedy team weren’t pleased with the performers so they took it upon themselves and made their own cypher.
Footage of Machine Gun Kelly meeting DMX for the first time. Taken from MGK’s upcoming Lace Up documentary. Shows them recording a track for MGK’s Lace Up album. Due out October 9th.
Elite is back with two more bangers in ONE. Isn’t that freakin’ awsome. The Dreamvillian has been working with DMX and his latest album, as well. This proves to show that the talent and grind that Dreamville has to offer is impeccable.“Last Round” & “Crabs In A Bucket” are two tracks from his recently released EP entitled Awaken. These are two dope tracks that I truly believe KHH readers should listen.
Don’t sleep on J. Cole‘s camp – their just full of real raw talent.

DMX performed at Rock The Bells last month. A camera followed him backstage and captured footage of X preparing for the show. Ice Cube, Jim Jones, WC, Jadakiss, and RZA make appearances. Undisputed is now in stores.
“I don’t give a f*ck what anybody says. Babies are f*ckin’ ugly when they’re born,” says DMX. For most fathers, witnessing their first child’s birth is a beautiful experience. For DMX, it was kind of gross. “I looked, I said, f*ck are you serious. I waited 9 months for this? He was gray with peeling skin and stuff all over him,” he recently told The Boombox during one of their “Firsts.”
All jokes aside, DMX, father of 10 children, told The Boombox that he cares about all of his kids. “They just make me want to not go to jail,” he said. “Makes me want to spend more time with them. I realize like I have to be a very influential part of their life.”
