The state of Guerrero (which means "warrior") is one of the poorest in Mexico and the site of some of the worst violence in the battle between the drug cartels and Mexican authorities. As a result of the violence, hundreds of civillians have armed themselves with machetes, rifles, and shotguns, put masks on, and decided to police their own communities, effectively taking justice into their own hands.

Hard to Earn is the fourth album from the hip hop duo Gang Starr. It was released in March 1994 and featured the singles "Mass Appeal", "DWYCK" and "Code of the Streets." Musically the album is constructed around a harder, more stripped-down sound that is distinctively less melodic than the duo's previous work. Guest appearances on the album come from Group Home, Jeru The Damaja, and Big Shug. At the time, all were part of the Gang Starr Foundation, which made the album a stepping-stone for future DJ Premier-helmed projects by Group Home and Jeru. The single "DWYCK" also featured hip hop duo Nice & Smooth. Hard to Earn is also the duo's first album to carry the "Parental Advisory" label.

Etana might as well lay her cards out on vinyl records to profess her love for reggae. In her ballad titled "Reggae" the Jamaican songstress pays homage to almost everything that makes a song reggae, down to the strum of a guitar. It's really a passionate love song to the genre. The video continues the theme with cameos from famous landmarks in reggae history like Tuff Gong studios, Rockers International record store, and the Kingston Dub Club in the Jack's Hill neighborhood of Kingston.

It is based on a True Story and I definitely recommend it for everyone, especially women. It made me think of the relationships in the art form and how to respect it like I always been. Some shady things go down in this movie that's based on reality. Anyhow, the movie came out late April of 2011 via AMC Theatres, but I'm glad Netflix is now streaming it. Its a great movie. Below is the trailer.

Jaz the Rapper opened up to VladTV about how she initially got involved with battle rapping years ago.

Jaz eventually revealed some personal details regarding the ongoing topic of her virginity which is always talked about during her battles. She explained that she doesn't think it should be as much of a big deal as it has been, and that she hasn't lost it simply because she's waiting for the right time.

Choo Biggz was born Darryl Greene on 29 August, 1985. Named "Choo-B" by his God-mother at birth, Choo grew up in New York and is the grandson of Richard Truss, owner of the legendary Bronx T-Connection Night Club in the 1970s. Growing up inspired by his musical idols Michael Jackson, Jay-Z, Nas, Biggie, 2Pac, Wu-Tang Clan and DMX, he learned his first rhyme at the tender age of 5 years old, tutored by his uncle John-B. Choo spent his youth moving from NYC to Maryland and Georgia, attending various schools in different cities and letting Southern influences shape his musical tastes. Even though a Bronx born, Choo counts artists like Pastor Troy, HitMan, Sammy Sam, Three 6 Mafia, No Limit and Cash Money amongst his influences. Gathering much acclaim over the years as a flourishing artist, Choo has been co-signed by the likes of Mister Cee and 50 Cent who recently twittered “Check this sh*t out! Underground star choo biggz its hot!”. Choo Biggz debut album “The Undergroudn Star” LP, highly anticipated after signing a recording contract with David Michery of ESMG in 2012. His first single “Tonight”, produced by 2Deep from Germany, who has accumulated over 100 million song plays through his own website as part of the Anno Domini Beats production team, as well as numerous critically acclaimed mixtapes, platinum selling albums and collaborations with the Hip Hop greats. 2Deep is also responsible for the production work on “The Underground Star” mixtape by Choo Biggz, which features song/remixes Styles P, Tech N9ne and Shyheim The Manchild.

China Earthquake: Dozens Killed, 600 Injured An earthquake strikes Sichuan province leaving dozens of people dead and hundreds injured, Chinese media says At least 56 people have died and over 600 injured after an earthquake struck China's southwestern province of Sichuan, Chinese media says. The quake, measured at varying magnitudes between 6.6 and 7.0, hit at 8.02am local time close to the city of Ya'an in Lushan county and the epicentre had a depth of 8 miles (13km), Xinhua reported. It set off landslides, destroyed buildings and has triggered a major rescue operation involving 2,000 troops. The quake was felt strongly by residents in neighbouring provinces and in the provincial capital city of Chengdu, causing many to rush outside, according to accounts on China's Weibo microblogging service. A resident in Chengdu said he was on the 13th floor of a building when he felt the quake. The building shook for about 20 seconds and he saw tiles fall from nearby buildings. The quake struck close to where a massive tremor occured in 2008, killing 68,000 people. Sky's Asia Correspondent Mark Stone said: "The huge earthquake in 2008 was magnitude 7.9 and at a depth of 12 miles. This latest quake has smaller magnitude and depth, but it is still very much a concern for people in Sichuan." Local seismologists registered the quake at magnitude 7.0 while the US Geological Survey (USGS) gave it as 6.6. USGS said that "significant" casualties were likely and that "extensive damage i Twin tremors in neighbouring Yunnan province last September triggered landslides that left at least 80 people dead. A magnitude-5.5 quake in Yunnan last June killed four people and injured more than 100.

This is motivation, I'm trying to go the opposite way though. I've been hitting the ways lately, I'm determined at this age still to be better than I ever been. Muscle mass and health. #BHZLife Take a look at the amazing transformation that Wayne made when I presented him with a weight loss challenge.

Back in February, the only way to reach the city of Gao in northern Mali was to hitch a ride with the French convoys that rolled through the desert every few days. Along the way, a VICE production crew made friends with some French soldiers and chatted with them about what they thought about this grueling campaign as well as the greatest threat they face: homemade bombs, aka IEDs. Watch part's 1 and 2 here: http://bit.ly/Ground-Zero-Mali-1 http://bit.ly/Ground-Zero-Mali-2 Check out the Best of VICE here: http://bit.ly/VICE-Best-Of

Not every day do we get the chance to listen to a new release from legendary hip-hop collective De La Soul, but the trio are back with something to spark their fuse whilst still in the early stages of the year. Their latest single titled "Get Away" is fully reminiscent of our knowledge of their work, which sees them taking a well-known sample from the intro of Wu-Tang Clan's Wu-Tang Forever album back in 1997. The reason for including "The Spirit Of The Wu" in the title is simply out of sheer respect for the New York heavyweights, as it sounds pretty similar to something that the crew would be together.
DJ Jazzy Jeff shares his thoughts on the current state of record labels, and why they might be in trouble due to the popularity of social media. He also explains why he thinks Chief Keef and Drake made a mistake signing to record labels when they already had a big buzz online.
Constant touring can cause artists to seek out refuge in the recording booth along the way. Here, Life + Times catches up with Curren$y after a show in Chicago, as he and fellow Jet Life Recordings emcee Young Roddy spend two days recording "3 Piece Set," an EP for "Closed Sessions" at Soundscape Studios. Featuring an original score by Thelonious Martin.

Born and raised in the Greater Sacramento area Takticz is no new comer to the music industry. His dad is Sacramento's own Legendary underground Hip-Hop producer N8 the Gr8 from The Cuf. Takticz has been around the Hip-hop scene his whole life. He recorded on his first record at the age of three, and has made numerous other guest appearances since. He has a knowledge of Hip-Hop music far beyond his 19 years. People have been calling him the next Drake but his soulful voice compares more to a style like D'Angelo. Currently Takticz has released his first solo track "Transitions", a true to form boom-bap, hip-hop joint from his yet to be named Debut album. The song has been received extremely well by his peers and the fans of The Cuf that have watched him grow up and come into his own as an artist. His next release "Not Like All The Others" has the potential to be a radio smash, and is the first time he will be showcasing his singing to the world. He has the voice to drive all the girls wild and a rap style that will have any true Hip-Hop fan reminiscing back to the days of Rakim and De La Soul. Although he has that classic star power he still keeps it young and fresh. Takticz is an artist with the whole package and has a lot more on the way. It will be hard not to keep your eye on this rising star in the months to come.
