JAY-Z Reveals Reason Behind Rift With Kanye West

JAY-Z was a recent guest on the Rap Radar Podcast, where hosts Brian “B.Dot” Miller and Elliot Wilson asked the Hip Hop titan about his relationship with Kayne West.

The world was privy to some intimate details about Hov’s feelings towards his former Watch The Throne collaborator thanks to a handful subtle disses on 4:44, but it wasn’t exactly clear why things went sour for the friends-turned-adversaries —until now.

During Part 1 the hour-long interview, JAY admitted they used to routinely argue, but always respected each other. He said when West mentioned wife Beyoncé and 5-year-old daughter Blue Ivy during his infamous 2016 rant, he “crossed the line.”

“Think about how I got to that point,” Hov explained. “It’s not even about Kanye. It really isn’t. His name is there, but it’s just the truth what happened, but I’m sayin’ the whole point is you got hurt because this guy was talking about you on a stage, but what really hurt me is you can’t bring my kids and my wife into it.

“Kanye’s my little brother,” he continued. “He’s talked about me a hundred times. He made a song called ‘Big Brother.’ We’ve gotten past bigger issues, but you brought my family into it. Now that’s a problem with me. That’s a real, real problem. He know it’s a problem ’cause me and him would have been talked about it. We would have been resolved our issues, but he know he crossed the line. I know him. he knows. He knows … I know he knows because we’ve never let this much space go between one our disagreements and we’ve had many. That’s part who we are. That’s what I liked about him. He’s an honest person. He’s open and he’ll just say things, and he’s wrong a lot times, but we’ll confront it.”

West’s and JAY’s rocky relationship was the subject a recent British documentary, Public Enemies.

West is reportedly armed with a response to JAY’s barbs on 4:44, but so far, nothing has materialized.

DJ Quik Working On Joint EP With Scarface & “BlaqKout” Follow-Up With Kurupt

Los Angeles, CA – During their Los Angeles stop at The Novo by Microst Theater Thursday (August 17), DJ Quik spoke with DX about his relationship with Scarface, the initial concept the tour and a collaborative EP with the Facemob leader.

“I think an EP first because my ADD won’t let me do an album no more,” Quik told #DXLive host Jake Rohn. “Scarface and I, we working on an EP actually. We’re actually recording every show that we do into Protools all stemmed out. We’re going to listen back to it after the tour is done and in the interim, we’re writing lyrics and music on the bus. It just makes sense to make an EP not just to sell and have a record out but to make this whole experience and give it to people to feel a vibe.”

Currently, Quik and Face are on a 12-date tour, with a possibility additional stops. The joint run between the two comes from a friendship that dates back to the early moments in their careers.

“The first time me and Scarface met was in 1991,” explained Quik. “We were on tour with MC Hammer and I think Chubb Rock was out there with us, Kris Kross and it was the Geto Boys and us. It was Ice Cube’s Amerikkka’s Most Wanted tour. I think the Geto Boys were promoting We Can’t Be Stopped and I was promoting Quik Is The Name. We met and he was just a cool, down to earth and a solid dude. I had already loved his music for years. When he’d come out here to visit, I’d pick him up myself and drive him around. Don’t call no taxi and we just built from there.”

When DX spoke with Face himself, he discussed everything from his relationship with Quik to ficially retiring next year after spending 30 years in the game.

“In my opinion, Quik is the best fuckin’ mixer, producer and engineer,” said Scarface before speaking about his last solo album with frequent collaborator N.O. Joe. “Scarface might die, but Brad Jordan will be here forever.”

Back in 2012, Kurupt hinted at a sequel to his collaborative BlaQKout project with Quik, and he spoke to DX about the status the follow-up.

“We working on the new DJ Quik and Kurupt album,” said Kurupt. “The title is not for the public. Not yet, but you gon’ love it baby. Uncle Quik said we gone hit ’em with nothing but gangsta shit.”

Parookaville proves itself as a true European festival contender

Something special just happened outside Düsseldorf: Germany’s largest electronic music festival, . The festival just had its third annual anniversary, and it was, in a word, insane.

Parookaville proves itself as a true European festival contender

Founded in 2014, Parookaville has had great success in delivering the world’s biggest DJs straight to Germany’s largest dance music scene. This year, the ground served home to more than 80,000 attendees, complete with 10 stages and more than 200 artists on the lineup.

As one Europe’s largest electronic music festivals, it was interesting to compare the experience here to that American festivals. In comparing a festival like Parookaville to something like or even , some obvious differences were apparent.

One big difference seems to be drug use. I don’t know if it’s Germany’s love  beer as an alternative, but I was shocked at how few drugs were being consumed at Parookaville. Speaking solely for American festivals, almost every attendee can share some kind story by weekend’s end where they witnessed someone at the festival deep in a “K-Hole” or heard a friend buying “fake molly.” In Germany, however, I did not witness a single person noticeably intoxicated on drugs. After making a note this at the end the day one, I chalked it up to “Germans love beer” and maybe I just didn’t see enough the festival yet. Stiff security, maybe? Wrong. Parookaville had some the most lax — yet most pressional — workers I’ve ever seen at a festival. Aside from a group friends who posed as “stage crew,” only to be almost immediately busted during the artist’s set, the weekend went without any major hiccups. Note to “stage crew”: if you’re going to make it in, don’t give yourself up by jumping on stage and trying to dance with . Parookaville provided a fun and safe atmosphere for all, and it was so memorable. Music lovers came out to truly listen and enjoy.

Parookaville provided a great environment for a festival, combining both immaculate and historic grounds, with a stacked and diverse lineup. Parookaville proves itself as a true European festival contenderWhile the lineup was techno-heavy, it catered to many other genres electronic music as well, including what possibly might be one the most epic bass-heavy stage days we’ve seen yet, thanks to BOOTSHAUS. Check out the lineup (at right) just for Saturday alone.

If you’re looking for that festival “second-wind” in an industry that is always searching for new and fresh material, Parookaville is the answer. In their third installment, they truly have built something special in the hills  Germany.

One major thing to note about Parookaville was the stellar production quality their live stream and set replays. Quite honestly, this may be the best-looking live stream I’ve ever seen. From the camera work to the quality the stream, I haven’t seen many that can compare with the job their production team did this year. Bravo! MagentaMusik 360 provided full coverage for Parookaville 2017 and a select number set replays can be found .

Meek Mill Reportedly Arrested By NYPD On Instagram Live

New York, NY – Meek Mill is reportedly in police custody after being arrested for reckless endangerment late Thursday night (August 17). He was stopped on 10th Avenue and Dyckman in New York City for riding his dirt bike through the streets. The interaction with police was caught on incident that was caught on Instagram Live.

In the video, Meek can be heard asking, “What I do?”

The ficer responds, “You weren’t riding on a motorcycle yesterday? Yesterday, right? I got pictures you, I got videos you running up and down.”

Meek replies, “I just came from a basketball game. I just want to know my rights.”

He’s then asked to get out the car and the audio gets a little muddled before Meek is heard discussing the situation with whoever else was in the car.

The incident was provoked by a since-deleted Instagram post Meek made on Wednesday (August 16) that showed him riding bikes and quads through the 34th precinct without a helmet, which reportedly violated traffic laws.

He is apparently being held at the 34th precinct awaiting his arraignment.

The Wins & Losses rapper was in town to perform on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon!.
