Pras Is Living It Up While His Son Sleep “Shoebox”

Pras has been out living life to the fullest, while his son has to sleep in a “shoebox,” according to the child’s mother.

Angela Severiano testified in court Thursday (July 24) about the financial strain that forced her into a 250-square foot studio apartment.

Serviano sleeps in the living room area, and their son, Landon, sleeps in a makeshift bedroom.

”This isn’t about Pras,” she said outside of court. It’s about my son who lives in a shoebox.”

Pras had skipped four previous court hearings, partly because he was headed to Brazil for the World Cup . He tried to phone in his testimony during a layover in Columbia but the judge didn’t approve.

He will take the stand in September to argue why his child support payments shouldn’t be increased from $3,000 to $7,000 a month, to allow Serviano to move to a bigger place.  He made over a $1 million last year, court documents state.

The 41-year-old wasn’t  exactly beaming about being in court. The New York Post claims that his only words were “get to the f*ck out of my face” — and that was to a reporter.

There could be another side to this story, or maybe he has jet lag. Kicking back on a yacht and taking selfies with Leonardo DiCaprio is probably pretty tiring.

Blog Feature: Hip-Hop/RnB Artist DaButtonPusha (Tha Honest Femcee) Pittsburgh, Pa Talks About Her Music (Interview)

Finally get to talk with DaButtonPusha a very talented indie artist veteran  in the music industry.

We really appreciate this moment you gave us to talk to you and let the world know exactly who is DaButonPusha and what your music is all about.

Since Hip Hop music became a reference to a lot of people, we are really sure that they want to know more about you.

Tell us about you:
My Name is DaButtonPusha, Tagline – Tha Honest Femcee. I got my name from a  friend of mine 20 years because I would constantly be in my basement teaching myself something by pressing buttons. I am not new to the indie scene, I simple spent most of my musical career split between being an artist DaButtonPusha and the force behind an Entity JPB (Just Pressin’ Buttons Productions)

When did you start making music:
 I began making music about 18 yrs ago. I begin as a DJ, moved to a producer, then some things.

Who is your role model in the music world:
KRS-One is the #1 reason why I have done anything with hiphop music. I seen hm perform in my town when I was 13yrs old – I wasn’t sure what he was doing – but it had an effect on me, I later seen him as an adult – I was in my late 20’s  - he was rapper and Im standing looking at him like he was GOD himself – and he stopped rapping  - looked at me and said “Do not look at me in awe, what I do – you can do” after that I got to work and I been on my grind since. I had been push many things, especially my network (JPBTV.COM). This year KRS1 came back to Pittsburgh. I hadn’t seen him since I was in my late 20’s. Again he is rapping – this time he stops in the middle of his verse, grabs the JPBTV card out of my hand, reads it to the crowd – and then proceeds to freestyle for 1 full min  to me into my camera…needless to say I think we have a special connect – even still I never personally meet the man. Seeing him this year convinced me to push my music stronger because everything else I had done for others was solid – ITS MY TURN NOW!

Is there anything you would do differently in your career:
Yes if I could change anything I have done u to this point, I probably would focus more on pushing myself and my music, instead of trying to help build a music scene when I live. However since I cannot go back in time, now is as good as any to change the trend.

Who would you want to do a tour/concert with:
My dream show would be with KRS-One – Queen La – Kellee Maize – Mel-Jay, Jasiri X, Immortal Tech, SaRoc, Mos Def, The Roots, Snoop Dog, Kendrick Lamar Erika Badu, Jill Scott and of course Me.

Do you ever get lost in the music:
All the music I make is because I got lost in a track; Im what you would call a composed free style. I now only make one verse bangaz  - therefore rapping myself in a repeative head-bang beat until something comes from the depth of me to the point where it’s a must to spit is kinda my creative process, then I write - .Never do I make music on demand. Im called the honest Femcee because my music is very simple, but deep and it’s very very honest. I overstand that the Micophone is a tool and I use it as such, however my main reason to making music is to VENT J stress relief!

 Is there any site we can find you and listen to your latest song:
Sure a few I am on a few sites like Reverbnation, Soundcloud, MTv,Bandcamp, ect  however the easier way to find out everything about my music and videos is simply visit

Thank you very much for your time
I would just like to give a shot-out to you for interviewing me. All the people who have supported DaButtonPusha and JPBTv and my God. Special s/o to Boss Lady.

The Notorious B.I.G. Estate Suing Persistent R&B Royalty Seeker

The late, great Notorious B.I.G.’s groundbreaking debut Ready to Die is nearing its 20th anniversary but one particular artist is still seeking to purge his estate for royalties on the only record with a guest appearance.

Leroy Huston, former lead singer of acclaimed 70s R&B group The Impressions is saying “The What” featuring Method Man has been thriving in Hip-Hop head’s earphones for years with an uncleared sample.

The 1974 hit “Can’t Say Enough About Mom” isn’t credited in the creation of the Biggie track, which Huston says was done illegally and has even been campaigning against the slain rapper’s estate. He filed suit against the estate in April of this year.

According to documents obtained by The Jasmine Brand, Biggie’s mother Violetta Wallace, ex-wife Faith Evans and their legal counsel have had enough and they’re suing Huston for a court order that specifically states no copyright infringement has taken place.

Their rep also says the two portion used by producer Easy Mo Bee were done fairly and the ongoing campaign holds no merit.

Listen to The Notorious B.I.G.’s “The What” below and Leory Huston’s “Can’t Say Enough About Mom” on the following page for your own personal reference.

Tupac's Final Words Revealed by Police Officer on Scene of Murder

The first police officer at the scene of Tupac Shakur's 1996 drive-by murder has revealed the last words spoken by the late rap legend. And they're not exactly peaceful.

"He looked at me, and he took a breath to get the words out, and he opened his mouth," says Chris Carroll, a retired sergeant with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, in a new feature with Vegas Seven. "And then the words came out: ‘Fuck you.’"

Shakur was shot multiple times on September 7th, 1996. After leaving a boxing match with former Death Row Records CEO Suge Knight, the rapper and his bodyguards got into a scuffle with 21-year-old Crips gang member Orlando Anderson in the lobby of the MGM Grand casino. Carroll, who worked with the city's bike patrol unit, had also been watching the same Mike Tyson fight, but was unaware of the brawl taking place in the lobby.

Later, a white Cadillac pulled up beside Knight and Shakur while they were stopped at a traffic light and one man began shooting out of the back window. Carroll was the first officer to respond to the grisly scene.

"I grab the car door and I’m trying to open it, but I can’t get it open," he says. "[Knight] keeps coming up on my back, so I’m pointing my gun at him. I’m pointing it at the car. I’m yelling, ‘You guys lay down! And you, get the fuck away from me!’ And every time I’d point the gun at him, he’d back off and even lift his hands up, like ‘All right! All right!’ So I’d go back to the car, and here he comes again. I’m like, ‘Fucker, back off!’ This guy is huge, and the whole time he’s running around at the scene, he’s gushing blood from his head. Gushing blood! I mean the guy had clearly been hit in the head, but he had all his faculties. I couldn’t believe he was running around and doing what he was doing, yelling back and forth."

Carroll says when he finally was able to open the door, Shakur's limp body fell out of the vehicle, "like he was leaning against the door."

"So I grabbed him with my left arm and he falls into me, and I’ve still got my gun in the other hand," he continues. "He’s covered with blood, and I immediately notice that the guy’s got a ton of gold on—a necklace and other jewelry—and all of the gold is covered in blood. That has always left an image in my mind. . . After I pulled him out, Suge starts yelling at him, ‘Pac! Pac!’ And he just keeps yelling it. And the guy I’m holding is trying to yell back at him. He’s sitting up and he’s struggling to get the words out, but he can’t really do it. And as Suge is yelling ‘Pac!,’ I look down and I realize that this is Tupac Shakur."

Carroll says he attempted to get a "dying declaration" of a potential suspect from Shakur, but the rapper was ignoring him at first.

"And then I saw in his face, in his movements, all of a sudden in the snap of a finger, he changed," he says. "And he went from struggling to speak, being noncooperative, to an ‘I’m at peace’ type of thing. Just like that. . . He went from fighting to ‘I can’t do it.’ And when he made that transition, he looked at me, and he’s looking right in my eyes. And that’s when I looked at him and said one more time, ‘Who shot you?’. . . He looked at me and he took a breath to get the words out, and he opened his mouth, and I thought I was actually going to get some cooperation. And then the words came out: ‘Fuck you.’ After that, he started gurgling and slipping out of consciousness."

So why is Carroll coming forward with with information in 2014? Two reasons: Retiring from the Metro has allowed him the freedom to speak about the homicide case without being reprimanded ("It's been almost 18 years," he says. There's clearly never going to be a court case on this."), and he also didn't want "Tupac to be a martyr or a hero because he told the cops 'Fuck you.'"

Carroll says Shakur never spoke another word – remaining silent even when another officer tried to draw out a declaration in the ambulance.

“As soon as he got to the hospital, he went into surgery and was heavily sedated, and I guess he went into a coma and really never came out of that, until they took him off of life support," he continues. "So that moment I talked to him was his last real living moment where he was speaking. I talked to the cop who rode in the ambulance with him. He said Tupac never came out of it, and he never said anything at the hospital. There was nothing else.”

As I am in life, I wish not to be placed in a box with my music.

I am excited to be working with Pledge Music on my solo debut project. After having the meeting with them, I felt this was a perfect marriage.

We were seeking a product that would be a fit for TRAEDONYA! and felt that gloves were a perfect because over the years  she always wore them.

Some of the bold face names in the immediate past who have done Pledge Music campaigns are Mobb Deep, Slash and Sevendust.

The Campaign just isn't about TRAEDONYA!. An integral part of this campaign will be the St. Judes Childrens Hospital.
The mission of St Judes research is to advance cures and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment.
Consistent with the vision of founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family's ability to pay for care.

This has made me very happy to be able to assist this great institution says TRAEDONYA!.
TRAEDONYA! over the years has hit key benchmarks with each of her singles released. All of her singles have made the national club chart in the USA as reported by the music trade magazine DJ Times.

The lead single off of her solo debut ep Another Lie has picked up major support in the blogosphere and at taste making Internet radio stations globally in the recent months.

Floyd Mayweather Arrested For Attempted Murder And Kidnapping

Floyd Mayweather allegedly orchestrated a savage attack on two of his employees he suspected of stealing his jewelry.. TMZ has learned.
Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ Sports … the two men had been hired to work on Floyd’s Vegas homes … but when jewelry went missing, Floyd pointed the finger at them.
We’re told the men claim they were contacted several weeks ago and instructed to meet Floyd at an off-site location.
When the men arrived, they claim Floyd was waiting for them — along with a number of his “people” – who proceeded to beat the living crap out of them with various weapons, including clubs.
Our sources say the attack was so brutal the men could have easily died. Both men had broken arms and legs and were hospitalized for several days.
One source put it this way, “It was some ‘Breaking Bad’ s**t.”
We’re told the men are adamant they never took anything from Floyd and it appears Floyd realizes that now. 
But here’s the problem for the champ — sources familiar with the situation say the attack amounts to attempted murder, mayhem and kidnapping. We’re told the men have retained a lawyer.

me he was focused, then when he played his music in the

battle, he blew the whole room away! Definitely Soul Nana is the future of production." – Sha Money XL

In 2000 Soul Nana made his transition to music production  By 2004 his first placement "Lots of Girls" featuring Spragga Benz became the official first single for Slip N Slide artist Don Yute.

After winning the 2007 Sha Money XL Beat Battle in Phoenix Arizona, Soul Nana went on to work with Rayven Simone, Jodeci, The Cheetah Girls,Keith Robinson, Anjulie, Nikki Grier, Busta Rhymes, Maino, and many others.

Nana continues to hone and develop his production skills.  Like those who influenced him,he is never satisfied.

It is that very same commitment and passion that has recently drawn him back to the desire to perform. Soul Nana has diligently worked on his delivery and lyrical acumen in order to honor his rich musical heritage, making clear his determination for excellence on both sides of the microphone.

R&B/Soul, Rock, Dance, and Reggae with traditional African vibrations.

Whoopi Goldberg Writes About How She Replaced Advil With Marijuana To Treat Illness

Whooppi Goldberg is one of the only people to have won a Grammy, Academy Award, Golden Globe, Emmy, Daytime Emmy and a Tony. You can now add marijuana columnist to her resume as Goldberg begun her writing gig at The Cannabist with a post on her love of medical marijuana.
Goldberg, whom suffers from glaucoma-induced headaches stated that she uses a vaporizer pen that she named “Sippy” to deal with her headaches. According to Goldberg, marijuana has worked better than the “man made things” she was taking before:

I used to take Advil by the handful for this very reason, and I don’t take Advil anymore — not for my eye. You’re not supposed to eat Advil every day, and I was eating them every day, these man-made things. But I can do this without hurting myself.

Goldberg maintains that she uses marijuana for strictly medicinal purposes and is “certainly not looking for that high high.”
This is a mentality she developed over time as she revealed in 1992 that she smoked marijuana prior to her acceptance speech at the 1991 Oscars:

I learned a great lesson. Never smoke pot before there’s a possibility of having to talk to a hundred million people.

Alpha Leo, "Jesus Was Black" [Bay Area, CA] | "I was chosen by God himself"

Bay Area, California rapper Alpha Leo presents "Jesus Was Black", his new single produced by Royal Audio Tunes, which will appear on his forthcoming album David And Goliath 2, which will also feature production from Paul Cabbin, Kevin Barnes, and Nuggi Fresh Beats.

DG2 is the followup to the first installment released in 2012 (download DG1 on DatPiff).

His 2009 single "My Time Now" spent four weeks at the number one spot on Hartford, CT radio station KISS 95.7's Underground Countdown (link).

"God inspired me to record 'Jesus Was Black'," says Alpha.

"Western civilization likes to take away credit from the original man who is a man of color by exing our accomplishments out of history.

Jesus (Yeshuah) was born in a region that was populated by dark-skinned people some 2,000 years ago and the scriptures even give reference of his skin color and hair texture, so why do we constantly see images of him that contradict what the Scriptures say?

I am a Bay Area artist who was chosen by God himself to let the people know the truth and to battle against the lies of western civilization. Jesus was not a European, but he was black."
