Bones Brigade: An Autobiography - (MUST SEE Trailer)

"Animal Chin Have You Seen Him"
The New Stacy Peralta Documentary

http://animalch.in/f5P - Post your Bones Brigade memories on Instagram with the hashtag #BonesBrigade for a chance to be included in the Bones Brigade: An Autobiography DVD artwork.

It's not a death metal band, an extreme diet club or historic dominoes association—the Bones Brigade was a talented gang of teenage outcasts. Unmotivated by fame or popularity, they completely dedicated their lives to a disrespected art form. For most of the 1980s, this misfit crew headed by a 1970s ex-skateboard champion blasted the industry with a mixture of art and raw talent becoming the most popular skateboarding team in history. The core unit of the Bones Brigade built an empire that covered the world. They dominated contests, made hundreds of thousands of dollars, created the modern skateboard video, reinvented endemic advertising, pushed skate progression into a new era, and set the stage for a totally new form of skating called street style.

The High Profile Demise of Mobb Deep

The High Profile Demise of Mobb Deep has been played out on Shock Jock Hip-Hop Radio shows, youtube channels and  blogs for quite some time now. Both members of Mobb Deep have been facing personal issues, alleged Alcoholism, Prison Time, Label woes, Solo venture competition, "Hacked Twitter Accounts", Rumours, Denials and more. 

Prodigy & Havoc came together as the group Mobb Deep started while students at LaGuardia High School for Preforming Arts in the early 90's and released their 1st album Juvenile Hell much of which was produced by DJ Premier and Large Professor. Their second Album The Infamous became a East Coast Classic, at a time when West Coast Rap was on top, embroiling them in the middle of the media fuelled so-called "East Coast/West Coast Beef". 

Mobb Deep, Capone-N-Noreaga & Tragedy Khadafi - LA LA (Kuwait Mix)

They featured as guests on Marley Marl's remix of Capone-N-Noreaga's  - LA LA (Kuwait Mix) alongside legendary Queensbridge MC - Tragedy Khadafi, which was one of the most serious West Coast diss records of that period. 

Mobb Deep ft. Cormega - Let Nothin Die [Unreleased]

Since 1993 they have released 7 albums, with strong production by some of the best beatsmiths Premier, Pete Rock, Alchemist and more, and collaborated with some of Hip-Hop's best. As successful artists in their own rights; Havoc as a producer for many of Hip-Hop greats; Method ManEminemNasFoxy BrownOnyxO.G.C.The Notorious B.I.G.JadakissStyles PGameDiddyLL Cool JBig NoydTermanologyCapone-N-Noreaga, Prodigy's solo work and Mobb Deep; and Prodigy releasing his 3 part H.N.I.C. series. 

Comedy Mobb Deep "Blood Money" cover from http://nahright.com/news/2006/05/02/blood-money-in-stores-today

In 2005 Mobb Deep signed to 50 Cent's G-Unit records despite the fact that 50 Cent dissed them on "Piggy Bank", many die-hard Mobb fans were critical of the move, although in late 2009, Mobb Deep were released from their contract. It was during this period that Prodigy became a regular on hood youtube video channels, out spokenly critical of many rappers, and created beef for the group. Prodigy was arrested on a Gun Charge and asserted that the "Hip-Hop Police" had offered a deal if he would set up 50 Cent, which he allegedly refused. 

In the months leading up to his Prison term, he released some of his best music, putting him in a league with modern Political MC's like Immortal Technique, and while in Prison, he released Phone Time (Welcome To State Prison), and a 5 page letter accusing Jay-Z of being an Illuminati Puppet, and showed his support for Afrika Bambaataa and Incarcerated Religious Leader Dr. Malachi Z York.

During his Prison stretch, Prodigy wrote his now "Infamous" book My Infamous Life: The Autobiography of Mobb Deep's Prodigy, where he discusses events in his life. While revealing his life story, he has been widely accused of "Dry Snitching" on many Queensbridge and Hip-Hop artists, and the release saw a slew of back and fourths between Prodigy and Queens Rappers and Crime figures. All of this may have proved fatal to the Mobb Deep relationship, as Havoc is noticeably not openly involved in the over hyped tit for tat media circus.

Recently the Hip-Hop Radio Shock Jocks have been having a feeding frenzy over rumours of a very personal Mobb split, much of which features in the videos below. We at The Kool Skool do not get joy over this situation, and will not add to it. Unfortunately, it seems that "the Rap Industry" is more focused on fuelling Rap Beefs and Gossip, than celebrating what this industry is actually about - Music. All there is to be said is that Mobb Deep are a legendary Group, and like Groups, they fall out, and all you can do is hope they can sort out their differences, or wish them luck on their respective solo careers, and celebrate almost 20 years of dope music.

Havoc - Separated (Real From The Fake)

In this second clip from his sit-down with AllHipHop, Havoc speaks on the shots he took at P on “Same Shit, Different Day”, the allegations about P made by his cousin Ferg Brim and the decline of his relationship with his longtime partner.

Heavy Handed Police Tactics "Is Anaheim California Under Martial Law?"

Swat Teams, Assault Rifles, Pepper Spray, Grenades, K-9 Units, Unidendified Police Snatch Units, Horses and Bean Bag Rounds used on unarmed Men Women & Children in Anaheim California "Home of Disneyland"?

Something is happening in Anaheim - Why the Media Blackout?
Amber Lyon, award-winning investigative journalist and filmmaker, joins Thom Hartmann. Something is happening in Anaheim, California - despite a complete blackout from the mainstreem media. Take a look at some of these pictures by award-winning investigative journalist Amber Lyons from Anaheim over the weekend. When we hear terms like militarized police - this is what comes to mind. Officers decked out in full military gear as though they're about to be deployed to Afghanistan. So what's behind this? Why are militarized police on patrol in Anaheim? Well - Sunday marked the ninth straight day that local citizens took to the streets to protest police brutality. Nine days after police shot an unarmed man - 25-year-old Manuel Diaz - in the back of the head killing him. Since that shooting...the streets of Anaheim have been the scene of mostly peaceful protests that have at times turned violent in response to heavy handed police crackdowns. Last week - this was the scene in Anaheim - as police in riot gear fired less lethal projectiles like bean bags and pepper balls indiscriminately into crowds of people. 24 people were arrested that night - storefront windows were smashed, and fires were started. And last night - as hundreds poured into the streets for a peaceful march and ceremony for Manuel Diaz - they were once again met with Anaheim police equipped with full military gear. Nine people were arrested on Sunday.
