Hip-Hop Kings ReLaunches New 2011 Forum This Evening [News]

• December 10, 2010 • Comments (14)

I’d like to take this opportunity to drop some background on Hip-Hop Kings and how we were established. Back in 2004 (yup). Stuart Hallick and I met back on  the HipHopDX message boards. Then Stuart launched the brand we all know and love as Hip-HopKings.com on  a free proboard forum. After a number of months, Stuart made me a an admin of the forum.

After three seperate occassions of being hacked, we upgraded to a phpBB. Upon discovery we had thousands of sign ups, successful tournaments and a massive outlet for Hip-Hop fans to discuss music, we then created our first website with a full vBulletin forum.

In 2009 a failed backup resulted in me losing data and exclusive interviews with the likes of D12, Professor Green, Plan B, Immortal Technique, Dead Prez and many more. I continued to build again, and now Hip-Hop Kings is re-launching it’s popular forum, once the home of 2DopeBoyz member Shake, and Vonnegutt frontman Kyle Lucas. We’ll have public figures Loose Logic and U.K’s JollyJay sign up, and I hope to see all of you posting on the forums. The forum will be live from 9.00 GMT and I look forward to seeing you there.

Mr Sakitumi – Imperial Basswalker [Video]

Mr Sakitumi

Mr Sakitumi

Thanks to African Dope Records for sending this video over. I’d like to introduce Mr Sakitumi and his brand new video for the single “Imperial Basswalker”. The trip-hop-jazzy-feel for the track is something I think Hip-Hop Kings readers will enjoy listening to, and if anybody wants to remix or grab the mp3 for freestyle purposes let me know. The video is the work of “The Grrrl” and is something slightly different to say the least. You can watch the new video for Mr Sakitumi – Imperial Basswalker below.

Cypress Hill Singer Sueing Rockstar Games [News]

• December 9, 2010 • Comments (7)

A former backup singer for Cypress Hill is sueing Rockstar Games for $250 million in damages, after Rockstar used “him” in the video game GTA San Andreas. Michael “Shagg” Washington is claiming that Rockstar have modelled lead character Carl “CJ” Johnson exactly like him, after he gave a two-hour interview about life on the streets and gang culture. Michael “Shagg” Washington only came to realise this happened after his nephew told him about the game and character in July 2010. The plaintiff is sueing Rockstar for one quarter of their profits for the game, which is a staggering $250 million. Thanks to Euro Gamer for posting the news, and you can read the full article here – http://bit.ly/gVHB5q
