Macklemore ft. Lil Yachty “Marmalade,” Juicy J “Spend It All” & More | Daily Visuals 8.2.17

For someone who prides himself on his lyricism, it’s kind of surprising to see Macklemore collaborate with notoriously known mumble rapper Lil Yachty.

Either way, it happened and now we have a visual for their collabo cut “Marmalade” which goes the “Sky’s The Limit” route and features child versions of the two rappers  spending the day balling like big boys before throwing a pool party at Beast Mode’s mansion.

Yes, we’re talking about Marshawn Lynch.

Juicy J meanwhile is throwing his own big boy party in the clip to “Spend It All” where the women alone make it an NC-17 party. Sorry kids in “Marmalade” but this party’s way more turnt up than yours.

Check out the rest of today’s drops including work from Ralo, Thundercat (ho!), and more.

‘All Eyez On Me’ Movie Hit With Copyright Lawsuit, Could Be Pulled From Theaters

The Tupac biopic All Eyez On Me is in danger of being yanked from theaters after highly respected journalist Kevin Powell filed a copyright infringement lawsuit claiming the movie took information from his articles.

In the 1990’s journalist Kevin Powell was known mostly for two things, being a cast member on the first ever season of MTV’s The Real World and interviewing Tupac Shakur for VIBE Magazine. His articles on Tupac are considered Hip-Hop history scrolls. Much of the drama in Tupac’s life can be linked directly to Powell’s interviews with him. Powell wrote the “Is Tupac Crazy?” article, the infamous jailhouse interview piece where he accused Sean “Diddy” Combs and The Notorious B.I.G. in playing a role in him being shot and robbed at Quad Studios, as well as the iconic “Live From Death Row” story that also featured Suge Knight, Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre. VIBE even celebrated the release of the All Eyez On Me movie by recreating the covers for two Powell’s interviews.

But it also looks like the film’s creators celebrated All Eyez On Me by using information from Powell’s articles without his permission, and he isn’t cool with that. Earlier this week, Powell filed a federal copyright infringement lawsuit against the movie’s writers and producers. He also made a statement via his Facebook page.

His statement reads:

“After a great deal of thought and consultation with many, including my attorneys, I have filed a federal lawsuit against the producers and writers of ALL EYEZ ON ME, the new Tupac Shakur biopic, for copyright infringement. After viewing the movie twice in the past few days, it is clear that my exclusive Vibe cover stories on Tupac Shakur (when he was alive), were lifted, without proper credit or compensation of any kind to me, and used in ALL EYEZ ON ME. As the owner of the copyright to these articles, ALL EYEZ ON ME infringed on my rights by using content and narrative that was exclusive to my writings. I am seeking justice and a resolution in this matter that is fully fair to me and all the work I’ve done throughout the years, as an author and protector of the Tupac Shakur narrative.”

Deadline is reporting that the “justice” and “resolution” Powell is seeking is that the movie be pulled from theaters and that he be paid a chunk of the $ 31 million the movie has made so far. Powell’s attorneys are also using All Eyez On Me directors L.T. Hutton and Benny Boom’s recent interview on The Breakfast Club as proof that they used Powell’s work without permission.

“On June 13, 2017, in an internationally broadcast interview with The Breakfast Club, Defendant Mr. Hutton stated that ‘all of the interviews’ of Tupac Shakur were used to make the Infringing Work,” says the lawsuit which can be read here.

Aside from being mocked and criticized by 50 Cent, Jada Pinkett-Smith and thousands of people on Twitter, this lawsuit might be the final blow for what has been a very problematic movie.

Ed Lover Says “All Eyez On Me” Left Out Crucial Moments Of Tupac’s Life [Video]

Ed Lover Says “All Eyez On Me” Left Out Crucial Moments Of Tupac’s Life

The reviews for the new Tupac biopic “All Eyez On Me” are in, and they’ve been far from glowing, to say the least.

Now, Ed Lover is piling on the criticism of the film, pointing out that it left out A LOT of important portions of Pac’s life in favor of things that could have seriously been left on the cutting room floor.

For one, did you realize Pac was married for a hot second from 1995-1996? Ed Lover says that the movie, like most biopics, seriously downplayed female relationships of Pac’s life:

We’ve heard the good reviews for this one are few and far between…but if you caught All Eyez on Me over the weekend, what did you think?



Scarface Criticizes ‘All Eyez On Me,’ Asks Who In Tupac’s Family Benefits From Movie [VIDEO]

Another day, another All Eyez On Me criticism. Now, one of Tupac’s friends, legendary rapper Scarface, is questioning the authenticity of the movie.

If you didn’t know by now, not everybody is a fan of the Tupac Shakur biopic All Eyez On Me. The latest thumbs down comes from Scarface, with whom Tupac recorded one of his last verses with for ‘Face’s 1997 single “Smile.”

‘Face was a special guest at the Classic Hip-Hop Lives event in Chicago where legendary artists perform and sit down for an interview with host Knowledge Beckom. Of course, the topic of All Eyez On Me came up and ‘Face answered truthfully, and biasedly.

He claimed that if ‘Pac’s close friends like Big Syke, Spice 1, Too $ hort, Richie Rich and to a lesser degree himself, were not mentioned or portrayed, then in it’s “not a real Tupac movie.” After that, he took the microphone from the stand and stood up as if he were about to deliver some realer talk than that, which he did.

‘Face urged the crowd, that whenever he dies, do not buy any albums that any record label puts out on him. In that context, he also urged people to stop supporting Tupac related albums and films and to “let [Pac] rest.” He also added that since both Tupac and his mother Afeni Shakur are dead, and that he never had any children, there is no reason to support anymore Tupac related material because any money made would not be going to his family anyway.

Watch Scarface break it down below.

Snoop Dogg And The L.A. Times Call “Bullsh*t” On Negative ‘All Eyez On Me’ Reviews

All Eyez On Me hasn’t been in theaters a full 24 hours and critics, “fans,” and haters are already blasting it. Snoop Dogg however, likes the film.

Looking for a positive word about the Tupac biopic All Eyez On Me has been quite a challenge. Critics, social media pundits and even celebrities have been calling the film an assortment of things. 50 Cent called it “trash” and said we should watch it on Firestick. ‘Pac’s friend Jada Pinkett-Smith went as far to call the film inaccurate and “hurtful.”

But Snoop Dogg has come forward to debunk both of those reviews. The legendary rapper took to Twitter to share his thoughts.

Snoop inducted Tupac into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year and formed a tight-knit relationship with the rapper during their time on Death Row Records. Even though they weren’t on the best of terms when Tupac died, Tha Doggfather obviously still holds a special place in his heart for his friend and isn’t tolerating any slander.

Snoop also directed his followers to an L.A. Weekly piece by Original Gangstas author Ben Westoff titled “The All Eyez On Me Reviews Are Bullsh*t,” where he writes:

“On the whole, All Eyez on Me should be celebrated for its forthright and accurate-as-possible portrayal of its protagonist. Especially since it comes on the heels of a quarter-century of dishonest reporting about the man.”

Have you seen the film for yourself? Tell us what you think?
