Top 10 Gangster Rap Songs

This Is The True Gangster List Cause Fort Minor And Young Gezzy Isnt Even On The Same Page As Gangster. The Top Ten X W 1 Hit ‘Em Up – 2Pac 2pac is the rapper ever! Nobody will be like him.

He will be in our hearts forever. He died stupidly. He is a god of rap!

Pac was an expert in organizing words to make a breathtaking impact… almost like being in a lyrical war zone. “Hit ‘Em Up” proves this. It a good song 2Pac is the best V48 Comments 1 2 Straight Outta Compton – N.W.A.

HOW THE HELL IS THIS NOT IN THE TOP 10!? WITH OUT THIS THERE WOULD BE NO EAZY-E This represents gangsta rap, south central la is where it started anyway. I like 2pac but this is the real deal right here.

As raw as it gets V16 Comments 2 3 Real Muthaf****** G’s – Eazy-E This song is TRULY the pinnacle of gangster rap. EAZY personifies G rap, that’s what makes him the godfather of gangster rap. His lyrics and flow is untouchable in this song, even tupac and biggie rarely peak at this level of flow, lyrics and rhyme.

Don’t know why this song isn’t here, it is equal to if not greater than hit em up in terms of gangsta rap! Real recognize real. Westcoast I listened to this back in the days V32 Comments 3 4 Ready to Die – The Notorious B.I.G.

Greatest rapper of all time. Period. Tuwack isn’t even in the discussion Biggie is the best.Tupac was one of the best.But biggie was the best and always will be…

5 Shook Ones Pt. II – Mobb Deep I love it I’ll say you’re the best I’m fallin and I can’t turn back The lyrics are so impactful in this song. There was so much effort that went into this song.

Who ever said the originals are better then the sequels you are wrong. You ugly as heck V5 Comments 4 6 My Mind Playing Tricks On Me – Geto Boys Not for posers. this is real gangsta rap I grew up listening to all of this music.

This song is still the best.

7 Ambitionz Az a Ridah – 2pac What a great song. It’s Tupac shakur back in the game ready to make “Changes, or ready to Hit em up”. This is arguably the greatest Tupac shakur song ever.

8 Mind Playing Tricks On Me – Geto Boys Man this is in the top ten twice 9 F*** tha Police – N.W.A. If we are talking straight up gangsta rap, then this definitely takes the cake. Hit em up was another number one contestant, but NWA captured the street life in this song, rather than just a diss track.

And this one is more raw than ‘Straight outta Compton’ A true anthem in the gangsta rap world. I believe that this song helped to change the rap world for the better, and it’s more raw than “Straight Outta Compton”. This song changed gangsta rap forever!

F*** The police isn’t #1? God people are stupid… – EMBIGNASPAC V10 Comments 5 10 Nuthin’ But a ‘G’ Thang – Dr. Dre Dre is a true fraud, Eazy has already proved that Dre should be banned from the rap game for a long time.

None of his songs should be on the list. Sorry if I offended you Dre or should I say Dr. Fraud.

Dre is and will be the best Best song of all times The Contenders 12 Forgot About Dre – Dr. Dre & Eminem I think that this song is the best because it is really good and it is not bad. It is so awesome that it is good.

It is so good that it is awesome. Nothing else can be said, and that’s pretty much it. Anyone who doesn’t this song is fat and not skinny.

The great rap song by 2 greatest rappers of all time. Eminem’s rap was awesome, the video was great too Sorry bro Dr Dre is FAR FROM one of the greatest “rappers” of all time Its a nice song, nice beat, and also features Eminem (My Idol). A message from Dre saying he is still badass like he was during his early times, along with the help of one of the greatest rappers V11 Comments 6 13 Gangsta Rap Made Me Do It – Ice Cube Dude this should be top 5!

This should be at least in the top three, its one of the best gangsta rap songs. This is a truth gangsta song Ice Cube is one of the best gangsta rappers. I can’t see him in the top 5?!

V7 Comments 7 14 Boyz-N-The-Hood (Remix) – Eazy-E This is best beat Dre ever produced… I Love the scratches in between verses, the guitar riffs, the drums… It’s just perfection.

The lyrics are great, too! This song truthfully defines the meaning of gangster rap. Probably one of the most iconic songs in gangster rap history of not the most iconic.

Eazy and Ice-Cube did a fantastic job on creating this song. because the Boyz n The Hood are always hard. “this describes life in the hood” How the hell is this not the top! V6 Comments 8 15 Juicy – The Notorious B.I.G.

Gotta love the real BIG.

16 C.R.E.A.M – Wu Tang Clan Wu Tang Clan is a legendary rap group.C.R.E.A.

M (Cash Rules Everything Around Me) Is not just a great rap but is also a great title “Neglected for now but yo the mic is hectic” A real Dope song 18 Ghetto Qur’an – 50 Cent That is sick..50 is the second best gangsta rappers Yeah, I think the same thing P Search List References ^ V48 Comments (www.thetoptens.com) ^ V16 Comments (www.thetoptens.com) ^ V32 Comments (www.thetoptens.com) ^ V5 Comments (www.thetoptens.com) ^ V10 Comments (www.thetoptens.com) ^ V11 Comments (www.thetoptens.com) ^ V7 Comments (www.thetoptens.com) ^ V6 Comments (www.thetoptens.com)

Smoke Detectors: What You NEED to Know

Smoke detectors save lives. Many people may be lulled into a false sense of security thinking they have smoke detectors in their home. Smoke detectors that are not installed or maintained properly are not safe.

Here are a few tips on what you need to know about buying, installing, and maintaining your smoke detectors: What should I buy? The National Burn Institute recommends only buying smoke alarms tested by Underwriters Laboratories (UL). You will also want to make sure the smoke detector has a battery backup.

Smoke detectors that don t work in a power outage are no good. Consider buying a combination smoke detector and carbon monoxide detector, they may be more expensive, but well worth the money. There are two main types of smoke alarms, which are categorized by the type of smoke detection sensor used in the alarm.

They are ionization and photoelectric. Ionization smoke detectors Ionization detectors respond quickly to flaming fires with smaller combustion particles. They contain a chamber with two plates that generate a small, continuous electric current.

When smoke enters the ionization chamber, the smoke particles disrupt the current flow, which triggers the alarm. Photoelectric smoke detectors Photoelectric detectors respond more quickly to smoldering fires. They use a light beam and light receptor.

When smoke is present between the light and receptor, the photocell sensor triggers the alarm. Combination smoke detectors The best smoke alarms can sense both types of fires (flaming and smoldering). For the highest degree of safety and preparedness, there are combination smoke alarms also that combine ionization and photoelectric detectors into one unit, called dual sensor smoke alarms.

Check with your local fire department to see what kind of detector they recommend. Installation and Maintenance Smoke detectors should be installed on each floor, outside of every bedroom and sleeping area and near any air vents. Detectors should also be installed high on walls or on ceilings because smoke rises.

Avoid installing detectors near windows, doors or where there are openings where smoke can escape. Check with your local fire department for specific regulations on the placement of detectors. Smoke detectors have a lifespan of about seven to 10 years, and it s important to replace old detectors according to the model s recommendations.

Test your alarm s batteries monthly and remember to replace all batteries at least once a year.

Clean and vacuum the grill of your detector to get rid of dust and debris.

Other maintenance includes a monthly testing of the alarm and cleaning with a vacuum hose about once every month.

Black Mass Plays Like A Boston-Mob-Thriller Parody

1. Whatever your thoughts on The Departed or The Town the modern Boston mob/crime thrillers that all modern Boston mob/crime thrillers are measured against it is undeniable that everyone involved was deeply invested in both. Matt Damon had been waiting his whole life to play a character like his Departed rat; I likewise have zero doubt that Mark Wahlberg recites his Departed dialogue and flexes into the mirror when he s alone at night. ( The Town is a series of shots of Ben Affleck shirtless and a bird s eye view of Boston that happen to be occasionally interrupted by a terrific thriller; it s the movie Affleck must have daydreamed himself starring in in middle school.) You can tell that these movies are profoundly felt by the participants, and it leads them an authenticity that can t be faked.

The movie feels like theirs. Whereas, for all its strengths, Black Mass feels, more than anything, like actors playing dress-up. Johnny Depp gets teeth implants and a crazy white-haired wig, and you applaud him for it: He looks like Whitey Bulger.

But he never feels like Whitey Bulger, or even someone who has ever even been to Boston, really. Benedict Cumberbatch does his best to nail the Boston accent, and he does fine, sure, but there isn t a second you aren t 100 percent aware that he s a Brit pretend to be a neighborhood Southie. It gives the film a model-house vibe.

It s watching actors pat each other on the back in a closed-off environment that exists only in the film.

2. Depp plays Bulger, the Boston crime lord who was able to get away with his litany of crimes against humanity because he was an informer for the FBI. (He didn t actually give them any real info and basically played them all for dopes; Jack Nicholson s character in The Departed is inspired by Bulger, too.) We meet a cavalcade of actors excited to hang around Depp when he s not in Mortdecai Mode some are Bulger s henchmen (including Jesse Plemons, in a role that might have been larger at some point) and some are the cops out to get him (including an amusingly mustachioed Adam Scott). We meet Bulger s brother, a State Senator played by Cumberbatch, who may be aiding his psychopath brother but definitely doesn t want to know any details, and also meet the now FBI agent (Joel Edgerton) who grew up with them as Southie kids and now works within the bureau to help Bulger get away with everything.

Everyone works very hard on their accents, and none of them look like they could name a single Red Sox outfielder.

3. The movie features a bunch of actorly scenes that work in the moment but don t add up to much of a whole. Dakota Johnson, who might actually be the most natural, instinctive performer in the cast, plays the mother of Bulger s son and has a scene that brings out the angriest, rawest emotion Depp has shown in years.

She then disappears from the movie. (Women do that a lot in this movie.) Peter Saarsgard has a high-energy walk-on as a Miami drug addict who makes the mistake of doing business with Bulger, and, like with Johnson, you miss him when he s gone. But the movie never quite collects much momentum with all its isolated scenes of mayhem. The FBI never seems like a credible threat to Bulger, and, as his childhood friend protecting him from within but feeling increasingly compromised, Edgerton never seems like a worthy enough character to invest much in.

He s so ridiculous and so obviously lying to protect Bulger that you wonder how he ever got a job in law enforcement in the first place; you question the competence of an FBI squad that can t notice the guy with MOLE tattooed across his forehead. The drama that was inherent in The Departed the profound betrayal that bubbles beneath every word never connects here. You don t believe these people have really known each other for decades, so their dissolution of those bonds has little effect.

These are just actors talking to each other.

4. I m sorry I keep bringing up The Departed, by the way, but it s sort of inevitable. This is after all essentially the same story, in the same locale.

And if you re going to make a movie about Whitey Bulger while an Oscar-winning film from Martin Scorsese is still fresh in our minds, you better have something new to bring to the table. Frankly, I m not sure director Scott Cooper ( Out of the Furnace ) has enough to justify all the trouble. His style is straightforward, and his strategy to get out of the actors way and just capture happens.

That s all fine and good, but, like those actors, he ends up like an outsider interloping rather than someone who understands this world. Characters float in and out of the narrative there maybe just be too much cast for a story this spare and it never builds up into the crescendo it needs to. A film like this, with so many players lying to each other and themselves, all in the orbit of a murderous lunatic at the center, needs to feel like the tightening of a vice.

Instead it just sort of floats along, pausing when an actor does something particularly interesting, then moving along to the next one.

5. This leads us to Depp. Depp has appeared as so many weirdos for so long that you feel a temptation to praise him just for playing a normal adult with a heart rate and shoes and a social security number.

But as played by Depp, Bulger is as otherworldly as the Mad Hatter or Edward Scissorhands. Depp certainly does his best to project menace, and there s an oddness to his performance that keeps you watching. (The movie informs us in a throwaway line that Bulger took part in dozens of LSD experiments to get out of Alcatraz, and Depp seems to have taken that and run with it.) But it never steps out of the strange uncanny valley that Depp s career has become, an inability to connect with actual human beings on an organic level. Depp never really digs into what makes Bulger tick, what his motivations might be other than be a magnetic psychopath, and thus the movie never propels forward.

It s just a camera pointed at a massive movie star doing another in his series of performance art pieces, and everyone sort of circling around him, partly cheering him on, partly not sure what exactly they e supposed to do when standing next to him. This is the sort of movie that actors love, and the rest of us just kind of oblige. Black Mass is an effective Actor Delivery Device.

6 Biggest Celebrity Feuds of the Year (So Far)

1. Nicki Minaj vs. Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus Minaj and Swift first became embroiled in a feud after Minaj tweeted her discontent over “Anaconda” being snubbed for video of the year at the 2015 MTV VMAs, seemingly targeting Swift’s “Bad Blood” nomination in the process.

The rapper tweeted: “When the ‘other’ girls drop a video that breaks records and impacts culture they get that nomination” and “If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for vid of the year.” Swift, who though that she was being called out, wrote in response: “I’ve done nothing but love & support you. It’s unlike you to pit women against each other. Maybe one of the men took your slot..” The two eventually reconciled after Minaj made clear that her tweets weren’t targeting Swift, and the “Bad Blood” singer subsequently apologized for misunderstanding and misspeaking (they again proved they were on good terms when Swift joined Minaj onstage during her performance at the VMAs).

Cyrus became thrown in the mix when she commented on Minaj’s previous tweets in an interview with the New York Times 1 , saying that she didn’t respect her statement “because of the anger that came with it. And it s not anger like, ‘Guys, I m frustrated about some things that are a bigger issue.’ You made it about you. Not to sound like a bitch, but that s like, ‘Eh, I didn t get my VMA.’ ” Minaj caught wind of Cyrus’ comments and made a point to call her out at the podium 2 while accepting the award for best hip-hop video at the MTV VMAs. “And now, back to this bitch who had a lot to say about me the other day in the press.

Miley, what’s good?” she said at the end of her acceptance speech.

2. Meek Mill vs. Drake Meek Mill blasted Drake on Twitter for supposedly using a ghostwriter to pen his raps, including his featured verse on Meek Mill’s track “R.I.C.O.” The Dreams Worth More Than Money rapper tweeted: “Stop comparing drake to me too….

He don’t write his own raps! That’s why he ain’t tweet my album because we found out!” and “He ain’t even write that verse on my album and if I woulda knew I woulda took it off my album….. I don’t trick my fans!

Lol.” Drake responded by releasing diss track “Charged Up” and a second freestyle titled “Back to Back,” which featured the lyrics “Is that a world tour or your girl s tour?” (referencing Meek Mill’s opening slot on girlfriend Nicki Minaj’s The Pinkprint tour). Tweeting that Drake’s disses were “baby lotion soft,” Meek Mill dropped his own diss track “Wanna Know,” on which he named three of the rapper’s potential ghostwriters with lyrics like “I just wanna know, I just wanna know / Was it Quentin Miller? Was it Hush or was it Detail where you really got your flow.” 3.

Donald Trump vs. Rosie O’Donnell Trump and O’Donnell have exchanged harsh words for years, dating back to 2006 when O’Donnell, then a co-host on The View , called Trump a “snake-oil salesman” and claimed he had gone bankrupt during a broadcast. Trump vehemently denied filing for bankruptcy and retalieted by telling People 3 , “I’ll most likely sue her for making those false statements and it’ll be fun.

Rosie’s a loser. A real loser. I look forward to taking lots of money from my nice fat little Rosie.” Though the two have continuously traded insults over Twitter since then, Trump recently resurfaced their feud 4 during the first Republican debate.

When moderator Megyn Kelly noted, “You ve called women you don t like fat pigs, dogs, slobs and disgusting animals,” Trump interjected to say, “Only Rosie O’Donnell.” O’Donnell responded 5 to his dig by tweeting: “try explaining that 2 ur kids.” Trump has also engaged in public spats with Kelly 6 , Jorge Ramos 7 , Roger Ailes 8 and a handful of others this year.

4. Lil Wayne vs. Birdman Lil Wayne’s feud with Cash Money co-founder Birdman went public late 2014 when he tweeted in early Dec.: “I want off this label and nothing to do with these people but unfortunately it ain’t that easy.” The rapper’s conflict with his label quickly escalated earlier this year, when he filed a $51 million lawsuit against Cash Money Records claiming that his contract had been violated and millions of dollars had been withheld from him for the delayed release of his album Tha Carter V .

Lil Wayne later told Rolling Stone 9 that he was no longer on speaking terms with Birdman and was “super-numb” to their legal fallout. In July, Birdman let his ill feelings towards Lil Wayne show when he reportedly threw a drink at the rapper during one of his performance sets at a Miami club.

5. Kelly Osbourne vs.

Giuliana Rancic The beef between the two former Fashion Police co-hosts first began when Rancic make a joke about former Disney star Zendaya ‘s red-carpet look at the 2015 Oscars, stating that her dreadlocks made it seem like “she smells like patchouli oil … or weed.” While Rancic became embroiled in controversy over her racially insensitive comments 10 , Osbourne, frustrated that she was being dragged into the situation as a friend of Zendaya’s, made clear on Twitter that she doesn’t “condone racism” and was “seriously questioning staying on the show” as a result. Soon after, Osbourne stepped down as co-host and officially announced her departure from the show (with Kathy Griffin following her lead).

Since then, Rancic has publicly mentioned that the two are no longer on speaking terms and in April, Osbourne told People 11 , “Giuliana is not often wrong. She really isn’t, but it’s been really, really heartbreaking to see her behavior that has transpired when she did get caught being wrong.” When Rancic appeared on the Today show to speak about the incident 12 , Osbourne posted a cryptic tweet following the interview: “Liars always get caught.” 6. Zayn Malik vs.

Calvin Harris Harris sparked an argument 13 with the former One Direction member by responding to a post that Malik retweeted on his Twitter which condoned Taylor Swift’s comments on Spotify’s handling of artist royalties. The shared post compared Swift’s views to that of Miley Cyrus , who has been open about not caring about album sales (“I’ve made my money,” she recently told W Magazine ). Harris tweeted to the original poster (@FemaleTexs) and Malik: “You’ve made your money?

Cool…f— the 99% of musicians who depend on these services to survive right? Yeah f— em” and “While u kids are refresh voting teen choice awards there’s some poor fucker in a basement making your new favorite record trying to survive.” He continued in defense of Swift: “If u don’t get what it means when a successful artist uses their celebrity to benefit every other musician and songwriter in the industry… …stay out my f—in mentions pls.” Malik responded by tweeting, “ha you just made an absolute fool of yourself mate … so i suggest you calm your knickers before them dentures fall out.” He ended his Twitter rant by calling Harris a “dickhead.” Harris, deciding to play nice, ended the argument by clarifying that his comments were targeted towards the quote, and not Malik himself.

He wrote, “Best of luck, genuinely.

You’ve got a great voice.” References ^ interview with the New York Times (www.hollywoodreporter.com) ^ call her out at the podium (www.hollywoodreporter.com) ^ People (www.people.com) ^ resurfaced their feud (www.hollywoodreporter.com) ^ responded (www.hollywoodreporter.com) ^ Kelly (www.hollywoodreporter.com) ^ Jorge Ramos (www.hollywoodreporter.com) ^ Roger Ailes (www.hollywoodreporter.com) ^ Rolling Stone (www.rollingstone.com) ^ racially insensitive comments (www.hollywoodreporter.com) ^ People (www.people.com) ^ speak about the incident (www.hollywoodreporter.com) ^ sparked an argument (www.hollywoodreporter.com)

The Simpsons — Renewal Snag …

Key Actor Holding Out

Renewal Snag Key Actor Holding Out …

5/8/2015 2:53 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF EXCLUSIVE Fox has announced ” The Simpsons ” — which has run 26 seasons — is coming back for another 2, but they may have jumped the gun because we’ve learned one of the key players has not signed on. Sources close to the production tell TMZ the holdout has not reached an agreement. The sources would not say which actor is holding out, but we’re told it’s a key person in the mix.

We’re also told the people who have signed on have all agreed to the same amount per episode and that is not an issue with the holdout. The sticking points in the past have had to do with back-end profits and merchandising. We contacted Fox.

The network had no comment.
