Learn how to empower kids to end bullying at http://www.kidsinthehouse.com/endbull…
At Kids In The House, we realize that one of the biggest concerns facing parents today is helping their children deal with bullying and the increased pressure of social media and cyberbullying. Children spend an average of 45 hours per week online, much less time than they spend with both teachers and parents combined. ”I’ve been asking myself: why are so many negative comments posted online every day, and how are kids affected by seeing all this negativity?” says producer and director Leana Greene. ”We have to teach our children that words can kill, both in person and online.” Kids in the House interviewed 16 children from the Los Angeles area that have experienced bullying, as well as leading experts, to explore how to stop bullying, and to get clear advice on what to do when it happens. We hope that you will help us share the message.
Empower Kids to #ENDBULLYING
Cyber bullying is so dumb to me man just log off lol
meanness period! If you dont like something or someone leave them alone! It cost you nothing to pay them no mind. I teach my kids when somebody is being mean to shake their head and say..Im going to pray for you I see your hurting..
No i agree. But ppl gotta learn to ignore ppl
Some people you cant ignore bcz they wont leave you alone..you have to show them you arent affected by their ignorance..
Social networks like Facebook are failing to take responsibility for cyberbullying. Those networks create the forum that kids exploit to hurt other kids. Social networks also have social responsibility.
I raise my childlings with tuff love…. Momma Momma somebody bullying me online,… I’m gonna say come your ass up off dat computer and do your dam homework, folks got the right to say what they want it’s their mouth and you got the right to ignore it. Now the next time you play the victim you grounded you got the same amount of keys on the keyboard you better bark back or delete that account and watch cartoons wit your ole weak ass. lol

Chief Keef inked a pretty big recording deal with Interscope back in 2012, reportedly worth about $6 million. However, consider that relationship officially over and done, as the label Keef once called home is now the label he just doesn’t like. Taking to Twitter early this morning (October 21), the Chicago rapper revealed that he was dropped from Interscope after just two years.
He first revealed the news via a screenshot of a text message conversation with a friend, before going on to Tweet his frustrations with the label before the split. “100% of everything goes to me now, Jimmy it was cool splitting it with U But u gave yo spot up!,” wrote the rapper.
Backed his hit single “I Don’t Like,” Keef signed with Interscope in 2012 and would go on to release his full-length debut Finally Rich. Despite spawning a big time remix for “I Don’t Like,” with Kanye West, Pusha T, Big Sean and Jadakiss, the album failed to spill that momentum onto the charts.
A source close to Keef confirmed the reports, revealing that the parting was mutual and that the Chicago rapper will explore going independent.
The comments come as Keef tweeted moments ago that he will still release scheduled projects like Back From the Dead 2 and Bang 3 later this year.
I think its best for him interscope released songs that were totally against his lane in my opinion hopefully he goes back to his lane before bobby shmurda takes his trap
Keef is a case of straying. Ppl always stray the sound that got them hot i dont understand it for the life of me. If he stuck to the drill music sound the niggas biting him wouldnt exist. He had a chance to be a superstar because not only was the music hot, he had cultural impact. Kids using his slang, acting like him in videos, dressing like him. The whole shaboing. But u cant miss video shoots for singles featuring 50 cent and wiz khalifa. He turned down deals with jeezy 50 kanye and ti and signed with gucci mane. Poor business decisions
its crazy!! 2 artist with big records get dropped from majors this year and aint nobody gone platinum
Well they had dropped the details of keef deal and i figured he would get dropped he had to sell 250k in a year to keep his deal or the label had the option to opt out. If kendrick drops this 4th qtr he can do it. If he does he will have rap in a chokehold. Niggas gotta stop giving away free music top to bottom. I read the irv post. Hes right. This shit is bad. Only one way to start selling again is stop giving away free shit. Taylor swift dont give them country fans nothing free. NOTHING. Ariana Grande aint out here droppin mixtapes. Im cool with eps cuz they for sale but this free stuff no. I posted about this same stuff yesterday and coco island said the same thing. Only thing that should be free is the visuals. Where would master p be if he thought it was a good idea to give away that music for free and hope for something in return?
labels gotta stop dick riding off of the youtube social media hype only to drop the artist as soon as shit doesnt pan out its fucked up for the artist and leaves a statement of once your no longer profitable to me your ass in gone or shelved for dust which is the model for alot of artist at major labels mostly. I dont even listen to chief keef like that but im familiar with his sound and visuals which is drill music and shooting fucking videos in his house or riding round his neighborhood or some other shit. So when he leaves ”rehab” interscope drops fuck rehab song which was so corny and looked like a fucking soulja boy turn my swag on video which I could tell thats interscope idea. Honestly feel major labels are dumb as fuck at times trying to change the core image and sound of the artist. Labels dont want to groom superstars they want to produce acts they can monetize in less than 140 characters.
i agree. artists blow up from a raw energy and labels take that energy away thinking they can turn it into something else and people will follow. that is not how it works. as far as numbers on the internet go, by now everyone should be doing themselves a favor and only count for %10 of that.
I think Ive been saying for 2 years now that albums shouldnt be made no more. I know im no JD or Diddy but maybe yall will listen to me one day. Yall record labels are so far behind and have no idea where yall at anymore. Giving away albums for years while calling them mixtapes then release a album and wonder why people dont wanna buy them. Most albums today have one good song on them. And EVERY rap album sound a like. Trap rap is DONE. That ATL autotune bullshyt is DONE! Rap right now is DONE!
Create a hot single every quarter. Make people want your music and stop dropping a song every week. Create some kind of demand. But imma let my actions speak louder than my words.
Watch what I do with @destinyunderwood
Everytime a rapper from ATL gets hot with one song the whole world copies that same formula and recreates the same song and features an ATL artist.
I love what Luda is doing right now. That dude is back and been killing these remixes this past month
Dont say the whole world. Cuz i keep my content authentic. I get overlooked because they say it takes more money to break my style of artist than those that u complaining about. Thing is my style of artist makes more money and actually sells the records. What u sayin is true. One song gets hot and everyone copies. And u know why they dont stop copying? Cuz labels keep signing the copiers with the mind set of ”im looking for the next ___”. Im tellin u man i was in a mtg with a anr with universal. He praised my work. Said he respected it the whole 9. Then said BUT ”Do u have anythingg like the migos” it made me sad. I didnt eat that night. Cuz in my mind no i dont have anything like the migos, the migos has something like the migos, im d-mac and i have something like d-mac. We are just in a microwave world all around. Labels dont want the artist that have the talent they can build on and develop. They want the artist who has everything already and all they have to do is put it out. While i care about putting out quality bodies of work 90% of indy artists are trying to hit a homerun with a new single every other week til one pops for em. And i cant think of any of em that popped three years ago off one and are still around. Yet kendrick and cole? Had no followings before the deal dropped bodies of work and are both not having issues selling records. Drake is a diff case hes a hit machine 72 songs on billboard hot 100 hes a created player. But those are the top 3 rappers. All im sayin is facts proof in the pudding.
not even checkin for luda musically right nowhe can stick to fast and furious movies
Truthfully what could the label do fo him bet or MTV dont play his videos and radio only played two of his singles he already got his fan base the real reason dey dropped him is cuz he made a diss song for the whole new jersey he tomuch of a liability n his sales ain’t enuff
i saw that too. he beefing wit brick city over an altercation he had. but the fact is he hasn’t put out a hot record in a few years. and he strayed away from the sound that got him hot. they can’t do any press with him because he doesn’t do interviews well, he doesn’t show up to video shoots, at that point what exactly do you do with a artist like that
What’s going on sir. You told me to get an account so you could listen/watch to my Video! #Vegas
Chief Keef started to make music you couldn’t even fuckin understand. Nigga got that money and started to feel himself. Rappin off beat, growling and shit. He fucked his own shit up. That young nigga could have really did his thing because that fanbase was behind him strong. The real question is what anr’s at interscope let dude release that bullshit. Just like Bobby Shmurda, who the fuck let him come out with Bobby Bitch after Hot Nigga, was it Sha Money?? These are horrible decisions being made right there at the label, if they aren’t involved in the music process then what the fuck are they really doing?
At age 19, he has gotten into so much legal trouble that the label might have decided his personal problems were just too much of a liability. I think he shot to stardom before he could handle it.
Seated by himself on a small couch, Tyga is waiting for his lunch to arrive. The room is eye candy for architects and interior designers: high ceilings, exposed beams and hanging light fixtures contrast antique elements like the rows of Victorian picture frames adorning an entire wall. Then there’s this claw foot tub brought in for him to recreate Tupac Shakur’s iconic almost-nude photo (Pac’s privates are hidden by gold galore).
Tyga immediately scraps the tub idea. “I just don’t wanna recreate things that have been done,” he says. “Especially something so legendary.”
A large curtain separates him from two bodyguards perched on stools about six feet away. Tyga’s troop for the day includes his publicist, assistant, nanny, barber, and 2-year-old son King. For a man with an entourage, T-Raww is much more of a recluse than one would assume—or maybe he’s just overdue for some alone time.
There’s been a lot of emphasis on crew love in Tyga’s space over the years. It was 2007 when Lil Wayne recruited the Compton native to Young Money Entertainment. That was two years before Nicki Minaj and Drake blossomed into Tunechi’s big money brands. In five years, Drake has sold over 25 million albums and singles combined, and topped the Beatles this year for the most entries on the Billboard Hot 100. Then there’s Nicki, the feisty Queens spitter who can go bar for bar with the boys. Minaj signed with Young Money in 2009 and already has more Hot 100 hits than Michael Jackson (Though MJ’s output wasn’t nearly as bloated as today’s artists). She’s the first woman to simultaneously fill the No. 1 and No. 2 slots on the iTunes singles charts, both of her albums debuted at No. 1 and her “Starships” single had a record 21-week run atop Billboard.
”[Kanye] was like, ‘If you guys want me to help you produce your albums, and co-executive produce it, I’m here. I just want to help everybody.’”
By comparison, Tyga has yet to hit his sales stride, despite “Rack City’s” quadruple platinum certification. His third album, Hotel California, released last year, was a commercial flop. But the separation goes beyond stats
YMCMB couldn’t be more unified. Rich Homie Quan, and Young Thug are the new class of Rich Gang affiliates, while Nicki and Drake remain wholly committed to Wayne’s army. At Hot 97’s Summer Jam this year, Drake squashed his rumored micro-beef with Minaj by hitting the stage with her and Wayne. Tyga’s absence from the love fest, as well as the Drake vs. Lil Wayne tour (Y.G., was added to the tour for West Coast dates) was a tip-off that Tyga wasn’t top-of-mind at home base.
Now, as he readies The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty, Tyga is demanding attention from his team. Everything about the album—whose title is a nod to Tyga’s obsession with ancient Egyptians—is authentic to who he is currently. This album wasn’t made for the La Marina and Toxic set. As Tyga vaguely explains, it’s more “vibe music.” He’s anxious to get the project out, even if that means publicly criticizing the label. The day after VIBE’S cover shoot, he threatened to leak the LP via Twitter if Young Money didn’t give him a release date.
YMCMB president Mack Maine shot back through his own tweet, warning Tyga to take ownership of his shortcomings. Minaj then unfollowed him. Days later, he released “40 Mill,” one of the many Kanye West-produced cuts from his new album. Yeah, that Mr. West. He might now have the attention he was looking for.
This is interesting to me.
This what i was lookin for. @qpid901 @goldenfleece did yall read this interview. This nigga flat out said drake is fake and he dont like him. Lol. Drake then last night went on a liking spree of tyga’s bm instagram pics lol
I read this and I know that Tyga is real tight with Chris Brown. I remember when that beef was in full swing he was still side by side with Chris Brown. What was really interesting was sitting in on the managers panel at the Revolt conference and hearing Mack Maine basically say they don’t do exactly what Tyga is accusing them of. Lil Twist is beefing with them too. I wrote something a few weeks back on the 14 about how Jae Millz has been with these dudes for almost 9 years and hasn’t dropped one debut album, something is a midst over there at young money. A lot of those artist love Wayne but I don’t think they like the company structure. I would not be surprised if Drake or Nicki end up having an issue down the line.
Do yall think tyga is shooting himself in the foot right now? Or is he rich enuff ro not give a fuck?
hes whack so who cares? lol
Tyga can make hits tho lol. I dont think hes a great rapper but that boy can whip up a club track like its nobodys business
