Beanie Sigel Says He’s Apparently Done With Rap

Washington D.C radio host, Lil Mo, revealed Beanie Sigel’s apparent plans to quit rap and hip-hop for good. Breaking the news on her show, Lil Mo In The Morning on WKYS 93.9, the host said that Sigel texted her husband about the end of his era. Mo says, “…he’s like he doesn’t mean to hurt anybody but at the end of the day he said…Maybe it’s a God thing. Maybe it’s a inner thing, but, yeah. I don’t know.” Back in May 2015, Sigel joined Jay-Z on stage at Tidal’s B-Sides concert, which led fans to lots of excitement for a hopeful collab, but that looks like those dreams will be crushed. Lil Mo even had some hope for a collab between the two saying, “I thought after he performed with Jay when they had the big Tidal concert, it was sort of like be crazy after that, [but] he just doesn’t feel it anymore” Hopefully Sigel isn’t completely done, and we get to hear a few last tracks before he retires!

T.I Pens Open Letter to President-Elect Donald Trump

T.I has written a moving and eye-opening letter to President-Elect, Donald J. Trump, one week before the inauguration this upcoming Friday. With many in fear of their healthcare, their future, their reproductive rights, and so much more, Tip has written a piece we could all possibly relate to, hopefully, in one way or another. Released on Rolling Stone, he’s opened up his true feelings, thoughts, and questions to the President-Elect. He starts off saying, “As I share my thoughts, I want to first say that it’s easy to allow one’s frustration and angst to lead to reckless and harmful rhetoric that can cause irreparable damage. With that said, I want to be responsible, honest and respectful, but in no way apologetic about the rage and resentment that many of US have been suppressing for far too long.” If you want to read more of the brilliant and eloquent letter, you can read it in full here.
