Rae Sremmurd Have No Problem With Kriss Kross Comparisons

I love seeing something i created over 20 years ago, having an effect on the new artist of today

Rae Sremmurd had a massive 2014 riding the wave of their hits “No Flex Zone” and “No Type” and have already received positive reviews on their debut project, SremmLife. While in New York on their promo run, the turnt up duo stopped by “The Breakfast Club” to discuss their career and the album. Due to their style, high energy, and youth, the two have been drawing comparisons to Kriss Kross, a ’90s hip-hop group most known for their smash hit, “Jump” (R.I.P. Chris Kelly). It’s a comparison that the duo embrace. “It’s a good thing to me, I used to bump Kriss Kross,” said Swae Lee. “Just like people say, ‘They remind me of Kriss Kross,’ ten years from now people will say to other artists, ‘You remind me of Rae Sremmurd.’ That’s what we’re trying to go for. We’re trying to build our own credentials and go in.”

After wrapping up with “The Breakfast Club,” Rae Sremmurd joined Rosenberg for more on SremmLife and comparisons to Kriss Kross. SremmLife is available for purchase here.

Iggy Azalea Says She’s Getting Criticized Because Of Her Gender

Iggy Azalea doesn’t think she’s getting a fair shake. In a new interview with Vanity Fair, the embattled “Fancy” rapper claims that cries of appropriation are unevenly distributed. “Well, they don’t say that stuff about Macklemore,” says Iggy. “I think it has 100,000 percent to do with the fact that I have a vagina.”

Citing The Rolling Stones, Elvis Presley, and Eminem, she says she feels there is little unusual about her rise to the top of a traditionally black genre. Recently, the Australian star has been unreceptive to olive branches from the likes of Q-Tip and Lupe Fiasco.

You can catch Iggy later on in 2015 on her North American arena tour. The New Classic is out now.

Calvin Klein Spring advertising campaign features supermodel Lara Stone and Justin Bieber. In images that are reminiscent of Marky Mark’s 1992 campaign for the label, Bieber is depicted in similar poses with the Dutch beauty Stone evoking a close parallel to her 1992 counterpart Kate Moss. Shot by famed fashion photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, the still images are also accompanied by two 30-second clips: one of Bieber expertly playing the drums while Stone slowly approaches him before they embrace; and the second comprised of fast cutaway shots of Bieber in the iconic brands boxer brief shorts. And to think, Bieber wasn’t even born when the original ads aired.

Rapper Cool C To Be Executed Tomorrow

WOW!!! MY PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU

Philadelphia rap pioneer Cool C is scheduled to be executed tomorrow (Jan. 8). Born Christopher Roney, the “Glamorous Life” star was convicted 19 years ago this month of first-degree murder in the death of Philadelphia police officer Lauretha Vaird. The shooting occurred during a botched bank robbery carried out by Roney and two other men, including his rhyming partner Warren “Steady B” McGlone.

Though prosecutors sought the death penalty for all three, only Roney received the sentence. (The other two men are serving life without the possibility of parole.) Roney and his mother maintain his innocence, saying they were sharing a meal during the 1996 robbery; surveillance footage and forensic evidence suggest Roney’s presence at the bank.

During his time on the mic, Roney was known as one of Philly’s foremost emcees, beloved for taking up arms against MC Shan, whom many felt had abandoned the city that gave him his start in hip-hop. The peak of his success as Cool C came in 1989 with his Atlantic debut, I Gotta Habit. His video for “The Glamorous Life” featured the first appearance from none other than Jill Scott, who starred as the love interest.

Roney was originally scheduled to be executed in 2006, but was granted a stay. He is 45 years old.
