Dski

 

Dski style of Hip Hop is dark humor, it’s basically some things people can relate to, laugh at, or just say that shits fucked up but sick. Growing up for Dski when he was a kid, he liked to rhyme and make up songs. When he got older he started writing, free-styling with some of his friends, listening to mostly Hip Hop/Rap, and playing with sounds to make beats. It didn’t hit him until later that music is something that he loves doing. “I love all kinds of music, and good beats to flow off of. My mission is to work harder than hard at this business, failure is not on my agenda. I’m a Rapper, Writer, Producer &, Director.”- Dski

Pitbull has issued a remix to Baauer’s popular dance track “Harlem Shake,” and on it, the Miami native makes it clear that he doesn’t approve of Lil Wayne’s recent rant against the Miami Heat. “I’m self-made, I’m self-paid / I grew up with no daddy, I’m from Miami-Dade,” raps Pitbull. “It’s a deposition / Watch what you speak / Who’s the definition of Miami? Me / I move cultures, don’t believe me? / Watch and see.” On the second verse, he attacks Wayne. “You got money, yeah that’s sweet / But we all know Slim and Baby really eat / You talk Miami, yes you talkin’ Heat / Moral of the story, don’t sh*t where you eat,” he raps. Pitbull is the latest Miami based rapper to criticize Wayne for his comments; following criticism from Trick Daddy and Luther “Luke” Campbell.

Brockton, MA fourth grader, 9-year-old Luis Rivera Jr has assumed the rapper moniker Lil Poopy and placed his father in some trouble with local police. Brockton police have filed a 51A against Lil Poopy’s father, Luis Rivera Sr., which allows the Department of Children and Families to investigate allegations of child abuse and/or neglect. In various YouTube videos, the prepubescent rapper is videotaped having an older woman gyrate on him, partying in nightclubs where alcohol is served and referring to himself as a “coke boy.” Lil Poopy’s numerous music videos involving scantily clad women was “a bit much for a 9-year-old,” according to Brockton police Lt. David Dickinson. Lil Poopy is affiliated with Cocaine City founder/CEO, French Montana and released a mixtape entitled Coke Ain’t A Bad Word in October of 2012.

Luis Rivera Sr claims his son is doing nothing wrong and likens his on-video butt slapping to celebration maneuvers in sports. “When you hit a home run, when you go to the bleachers, they tap you on the butt,” Rivera said. The father of the French Montana prodigy claims his son makes $7,500 a performance and that he has contacted his legal representation in regards to the matter.

Rick Ross, Jay-Z and Dr. Dre are being sued over a sample on the Ross track “3 Kings.” Gospel songwriters Clara Shepherd Warrick and Jimmy Lee Weary, filed the suit against the three stars, as well as producer Jake One and Universal Music Group.
Warrick and Weary filed the suit over an unlicensed sample of 1976;s “I??m So Grateful (Keep In Touch),” to which they own the rights. They also take exception to a song that doesn’t represent their values. ??The video includes very graphic depictions of drug use, vulgarity, nudity, gun violence, criminal conduct, actions demeaning to women and many other items that are certainly inconsistent with Plaintiffs wishes for how Plaintiffs song would be portrayed, the lawsuit says. ??Once the Grammy Awards are broadcast, the listeners will be alerted to existence of Plaintiffs song, at which time it will be subjected worldwide to irreparable harm of being linked to defendant??s song.?
According to AllHipHop, Weary says he was not contacted for permission to sample the song nor was he compensated. Warrick and Weary are suing for copyright infringement, unfair trade practices, unfair competition by misappropriation, conversion and unjust enrichment.
