George Lopez Says If Trump Wants Safer Streets, Deport The Police

George Lopez has taken a shot at President Donald Trump’s immigration policies.

The comedian posted a message to his Instagram on Saturday that was specifically aimed at the president’s administration. Lopez made it clear he didn’t support Trump’s handling of immigration, which led to a 38 percent increase in deportation arrests in the president’s first 100 days. In that time, the arrests of undocumented immigrants without criminal histories doubled.

“The Trump administration is deporting Latinos to make the streets safer … you wanna make the streets safer, deport the police!” Lopez’s photo said.

Reggae Icon Lee “Scratch” Perry Says Kanye West Sold His Soul

Reggae legend/innovative producer Lee “Scratch” Perry is 81 years old and gives notoriously off-kilter interviews. In fact, he once called Island Records head honcho Chris Blackwell a “vampire.”

His most recent chat with House of Strombo was no exception — only this time he touched on the subject of Hip Hop, which included his thoughts on rap gods Kanye West and Drake.When speaking on West, he said Yeezy has sold his soul and that of his late mother’s for wealth.

“Him sell his mother’s soul to get rich … To get rich, sell his soul to, sell his mother’s soul, sell his soul to get the American dollars that is going down,” Perry said in his thick Jamaican accent. “Why should I listen to somebody that is so perfect and so unperfect and so stupid?”

“I did not sell my soul,” he said. “I don’t need a bulletproof jacket. And I don’t have a woman with a real big batty because me is not afflicted by big batty. I am not addicted to big batty. And I am not addicted to Kim, with batty in front and behind. Kim has batty in front and batty behind. I am not addicted to girls with batty in front and batty behind. The girls I have is not too fat.”

Perry did conclude that Drake was alright in his book because he “moves like a snake” (whatever that means).

Message to all my fans. I just want to thank you for giving me your all. Supporting me and backing me up when I’m not around but am always in spirit. I didn’t make this 21 project for the old reviews and bloggers. I made it for real Lil yachty fans who have been dying for new music from me… that’s why I put so many songs.. that’s why it’s mostly just me. Because it’s from me to you. I understand first week numbers didn’t do what most people expected but that’s only because they don’t understand me. They don’t understand us. I don’t expect anybody to. I make it for those who listen. I feel like my brand is so big and blew up so big, it blew up bigger than my actual music. Which isn’t the worst situation it could be worse all I have to is make it to where my brand hype and music hype equal out.. I am back in the studio. Working on my next ep. I know what you guys (my fans) liked about the project and didn’t like.. I’m putting that into consideration. It is now time to focus on my tour. Teenage Tour. Which is going to be fucking lit. A fucking experience to the young youth ready to lose there minds!!!!!!!! With this being my last few months of being a teenager I am just living with no regrets having fun and enjoying life. And that’s what I did with this album. I’m glad I made it and I personally love it. Think it’s awesome. I need to see everybody at the local date on the teenage tour singing there heart out.

Jean-Michel Basquiat Painting Sells For Record $110.5 Million

Rap fans should expect the name Basquiat to be mentioned in even more songs in the future now that he holds the sales record for American artists.

Basquiat’s 1982 piece “Untitled” sold for $110.5 million at a Sotheby’s auction on Thursday.

The painting was bought by Japanese businessman Yusaku Maezawa.

“I am happy to announce that I just won this masterpiece. When I first encountered this painting, I was struck with so much excitement and gratitude for my love of art. I want to share that experience with as many people as possible,” wrote the billionaire on Instagram.

Basquiat began as a 1970’s graffiti artist in New York City and later connected with pop culture icon Andy Warhol.

He also worked with rappers Rammellzee and K-Rob for the track “Beat Bop.”

Warhol’s “Silver Car Crash (Double Disaster)” held the previous American sales record at $104.5 million.Screen Shot 2017-05-20 at 7.58.04 PM

Talib Kweli takes Hip-Hop to ‘Protest Stage’

Talib Kweli, the Brooklyn-based hip hop artist, was on two stages at Moogfest on Thursday — first at the Carolina Theatre talking about work, music and politics, and later on a large outdoor stage outside Motorco Music Hall.

The outdoor stage at Moogfest is called the “Protest Stage.” Kweli performed a high energy range of songs including old school beats, reggae, A Tribe Called Quest and Black Star, the hip hop duo he was in with Mos Def. About halfway through his set, he stopped to talk about hip hop and society.

“This is pro-black rap. Because pro-blackness is about equality; it’s about equity,” he said. “Nobody is superior over anyone else. Race is a social construct.”

Kweli said that if they come to see him live in the flesh, then they get him live in the flesh, not just music.

“I’m 41 years old. I represent hip hop on this stage,” he said.
