Tupac Shakur is Currently ‘Alive And Living In Cuba’ – Ex Security Officer Makes Shocking Claim

Sep 23, 2018 by beatsonline - Comments Off on Tupac Shakur is Currently ‘Alive And Living In Cuba’ – Ex Security Officer Makes Shocking Claim

A man described as a ‘former security officer’ has made a startling claim insisting that legendary rapper, Tupac Shakur is still alive years after his murder.

Michael Nice insists Tupac is still alive and could be “smoking a cigar” in Cuba.

Since the rapper’s famous death in Las Vegas back in 1996, dozens of conspiracy theories have swirled. Here’s what Mr Nice has to say.

Michael Nice describes himself as a former security officer.

He said he worked for the far-left political party, The Black Panthers, before he was drafted to help Tupac flee America.

Michael told TMZ The Black Panthers issued the order to get Tupac into a safe place.

He said: “It was me, my bother, the pilot, Tupac as the co-pilot and two Panther guys on the jet.

“We took off and immediately knew we were safe, we felt good and it was like escaping from prison.”

How did he ‘help Tupac escape’?

 

Tupac was infamously gunned down on September 7, 1996, while driving through Las Vegas. He died in hospital six days later.

Michael claims his security agency paid hospital officials a large sum to switch Tupac’s body with another deceased, to fake a death story.

Nice and his men helped the rapper disguise himself as a co-pilot, before they all flew to Barbados.

Michael added: “Then my brother helped him get to Cuba from there.”

“Kadafi was doing some kind of hand signals – he looked kind of funky.

“I saw them alive way after their said deaths.”

Who Wins When Artists Upload Directly to Spotify?

Sep 23, 2018 by beatsonline - Comments Off on Who Wins When Artists Upload Directly to Spotify?

Last week, when Noname released her breathtaking debut album, Room 25, she also made history in a more technical way. To upload music onto most digital music streaming or download services, unsigned artists typically use a middleman as a distributor. Yesterday, Spotify unveiled a new feature that allows artists to upload their music directly to Spotify for free, and Noname is the poster child.

For now, the upload feature is available by invitation only. But Spotify said that in the months ahead it plans to expand beyond the “few hundred U.S.-based independent artists” it has already asked to participate, including Noname. When a company with the industry heft of Spotify decides to shake up how artists deliver their music into the world, the potential ramifications are huge—not just for the music business, but for music itself.

Uploading your own songs for the world to hear is a concept as old as internet casualties like MP3.com and Myspace. Currently, though, it’s the turf of SoundCloud, which allows users to upload up to three hours of music for free (or more with a $135-per-year SoundCloud Pro membership). Due to its popularity with a certain sect of artists, the streaming service has spawned its own subgenre. Witness the Florida-centered rise of woozy, blown-out SoundCloud rap. Once a platform becomes known for a certain style of music, the momentum can be self-perpetuating.

Spotify hasn’t exactly hidden its interest in being more like SoundCloud. In September 2016, negotiations for Spotify to buy SoundCloud were reportedly in “advanced” stages, before the talks fizzled. SoundCloud recently retooled after facing financial worries and layoffs and ultimately raising a fresh round of funding. With the new SoundCloud looking a lot like the old Spotify—SoundCloud recently rolled out weekly personalized playlists, à la Spotify’s three-year-old Discover Weekly—the stage may be set for Spotify to rip a few pages from SoundCloud’s playbook.

Spotify has the power to determine what kind of music might grow out of its artist-upload experiment. Right now, Spotify is almost synonymous with the stuff major labels release. Hits on Spotify are hits, period. When Spotify’s relationship to independent artists is discussed, it’s often in a critical light. But as Spotify invites unsigned artists into its upload-feature petri dish, it’s nurturing the sounds that may one day spring out of it. Much as YouTube introduced the world to a new generation of teen heartthrobs and Vine helped spread viral dances, Spotify likely sees an opportunity to really affect (and profit from) popular culture at the ground level.

Yesterday’s announcement came as the record industry reportedanother jump in revenues, powered by paid streaming. With 83 million paid subscribers, Spotify’s clout and scale give it the ability to shape the DIY space if the company so desires. But it also should raise further caution about the downsides of any one corporate entity having so much control, over not just pop’s elite but now also its starving artists. Traditionally, the record deal, even on a small scale, inoculated artists from some of the ups and downs of a fickle industry. By cutting out the middleman, an initiative like could put more money in the pockets of artists like Noname who are already popular on their own. For artists further out on the margins, it could be a bit like putting music up on Bandcamp, albeit with the far smaller payouts of streaming compared with actual sales. In either case, the assumed risks fall entirely on the artist. On Spotify, if a song is a success, the return may be big. If not, it will be up to the artist to fund the next one.

In 2005, Kanye West was doing a radio interview at 102.7 FM. Hearing about this, Sean headed over to the station to meet West and perform some freestyle.

Initially West was reluctant to hear him, however, he gave Sean 16 bars to rap for him.

According to Big Sean, West enjoyed his freestyle: “As we get to the entrance of the radio station … we stopped in the middle of the doorway. He starts looking at me and bobbing his head.”

After the freestyle, Sean left West his demo tape. Two years later, West signed Big Sean to GOOD Music.

Singer Drake Sues Woman Who Allegedly Made False Pregnancy Extort Him

Sep 20, 2018 by beatsonline - Comments Off on Singer Drake Sues Woman Who Allegedly Made False Pregnancy Extort Him

Canadian rapper, Drake has filed a lawsuit against a woman who claimed he got her pregnant, including making false rape allegations against him to extort money from him.

According to a TMZ report, Drake is suing a woman who allegedly claims he got her pregnant in 2017, saying she planned the baby scam and made false rape allegations against him as well.

In the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, Drake claims he met Layla Lace last year during his Boy Meets World Tour in Manchester, England. He says after one of his concerts in February 2017, they hooked up at his hotel where he says they had consensual sex and “Layla also voluntarily and seemingly happily performed oral sex.”

The suit goes on to allege in May 2017, Layla hired a lawyer and demanded money for her alleged baby and threatened him with defamation because TMZ posted a story saying Drake had never even met her.

The suit claims Layla refused to take a paternity test and Layla and her lawyer went radio silent. Drake says the whole thing was a scam … “There is no credible evidence of pregnancy, nor any baby, which would have been born last Fall.”

According to the lawsuit, Layla switched tactics and went to authorities in New York and alleged Drake had raped her during their one-night stand. Drake says at that point Layla hired a new lawyer who demanded money or else they would make the rape complaint public.

The Manchester police reportedly interviewed and cleared Drake of sexual assault accusations when the case was referred to them.

But, according to Drake, he claimed in the suit that Layla demanded millions of dollars in exchange for silence. The rapper is now suing her for civil extortion, emotional distress, fraud, defamation, and abuse of process.

BRAZIL ADDS YORUBA LANGUAGE AND AFRICAN HISTORY TO OFFICIAL SCHOOL CURRICULUM

Sep 18, 2018 by beatsonline - Comments Off on BRAZIL ADDS YORUBA LANGUAGE AND AFRICAN HISTORY TO OFFICIAL SCHOOL CURRICULUM

Brazil’s minister of culture, Dr Sérgio Sá leitão announced last week, that Yoruba, one of the widely spoken languages in Brazil, has officially become one of their official languages. The announcement stated that the language (spoken among the Candomblé religion practitioners and Afro-Brazilians) and African History, have been introduced as a compulsory subject in primary and secondary schools curriculum.

Speaking at an event at the fourth edition of AYO, the national meetings of the African-Brazilian storytellers held in Quilombola —where many of the early Yoruba victims of the slave trade and their descendants have been located since the 13th century— said that the inclusion of African History and Yoruba Language in the curriculum would help bring Afro-Brazilians closer to their roots, and help understand the origins of languages asides Portuguese, the official language.

The program featured prominent names in African literature, including Prof Wole Soyinka and the first female doctorate degree holder in Yoruba Philosophy, Dr. Sophie Oluwole. Also present was painter and illustrator, Adeyinka Olaiya, who spoke while drawing similarities between the Western Yoruba culture and traditional Brazilian practices. He affirmed that most of the cultural and traditional practices in Brazil are adopted from ancient West African culture as a result of the slave trade. The Yoruba heritage, he said, is reflected in the majority of the African cultural practices in Brazil today, citing examples: Akara, Dendê, Iyalode, Babalawo, Iyalawo, as some of the cultural and religious practices derived from the Afro-Brazillian West Africa heritage.
