Freedom of speech takes a back seat as the island of Jamaica has gone the censorship route by banning all music that "glorifies" violence and/or sexual activity in a controversial decision instituted this week.

Dipset head honcho Camron is back with another video "Cookin Up" for the album Crime Pays set to drop in May 2009.

This poem and accompanying performance reminds me of the power of words and what hip-hop used to be and still is in certain niche… Continue
