Hit-Boy No Longer Signed To G.O.O.D. Music

Rapper/ producer Hit-Boy is no longer getting out his dreams under the leadership of Kanye West.

The Grammy Award-winning beatsmith revealed to Miss Info that he was no longer signed to Yeezy's Def Jam imprint G.O.O.D. Music. “I got nothing but respect for Kanye, [but] I’m no longer a part of G.O.O.D. Music anymore," he said.

The split marks the most recent exit from the G.O.O.D. camp after Kid CuDi left the label in April. “I’m no longer on G.O.O.D. Music," Scott Mescudi said in an interview with Power 106. "He’s trying to start his own new path, and trying new things as an artist. And he was just like ‘Man, I feel you. It’s cool."

Hit-Boy says there is no bad blood between him and the Yeezus MC either; his contract had simply expired. Now, the focus is on his own Interscope-signed collective. "HS87 is where my heart is, that’s what I’m reppin’," he says.

Hit's latest effort with the Hits Since 87 crew titled All I've Ever Dreamed Of dropped in March.

Colin Kaepernick Discusses Incident That Sparked Social Justice Activism

Colin Kaepernick is featured in PAPER's People Issue, where the NFL free agent discusses the importance of social justice, and details how he became involved.

"The discussion happened shortly after the execution of Mario Woods," he said in the piece. Woods was killed by police in Dec. 2015 in San Francisco, after he was accused of stabbing someone in the shoulder. Kaep's girlfriend, radio personality Nessa, said that he began to study the works of Malcolm X, Angela Davis and Huey P. Newton, and "devouring texts on the global struggle for Black freedom and self-determination."

Kaep and Nessa also devised the Know Your Rights Camp (KYRC), a traveling youth-empowerment initiative that serves as a safe space for black youth, shortly before he began taking a knee during his tenure as a professional football player.

"KYRC is pillared around 10 fundamental human rights, in homage to the Black Panther Party's Ten-Point Platform and Program," the article reads. "According to Kaepernick, the principles represent the types of affirmations and protections that ought to be enjoyed by Black people globally: You have the right to be Free, Healthy, Brilliant, Safe, Loved, Courageous, Alive, Trusted, Educated and to Know Your Rights."

Is 'The Proud Family' Coming Back To Disney?

According to reports, beloved early-2000s cartoon The Proud Family could reportedly be heading to Disney's new streaming service with all-new episodes.

During a red carpet interview for the film 47 Meters Down: Uncaged, actor and comedian Tommy Davidson, who played the cartoon family's patriarch Oscar Proud, stated that new episodes would come with the media company's upcoming service, Disney+.

"I forgot to tell you that, The Proud Family is coming back. Proud Family's coming back," he reportedly said. "It's on one of Disney's streaming [services]. Yeah, Proud Family's coming back. They told me not to tell you."

Fueling even more speculation, an unofficial, fan-made page featuring new animation of Penny Proud and her friends made the rounds on Twitter Monday night (Aug. 20). Over the weekend, people also discovered that Solange and Destiny's Child sang the show's theme song (we thought everyone knew, but welcome to the club).

Disney+ is reportedly going to drop on Nov. 12, so we'll likely hear more news about it soon, and will finally get an answer about The Proud Family's possible reboot.

#TommyDavidson revealed #ProudFamily is coming back. He revealed it will be on #DisneyPlus streaming app.

Little Brother Releases "May The Lord Watch," First Album In Nine Years

After years of fans restlessly begging for a reunion, North Carolina rap group Little Brother has released their first album in nearly a decade.

At midnight, Phonte and Big Pooh released the new Litle Brother album May the Lord Watch on digital service providers. The album clocks in at 15 tracks and 37 minutes, with the lion's share of production handled by fellow Justus League member and frequent collaborator Khrysis, Focus and Nottz, with more beats by Black Milk, Abjo, Devin Morrison, Blaaq Gold, and King Michael Coy. A glance at the tracklist appears to show that there are no guest appearances, but this story will be updated with further details. In an Instagram post, Rapper Big Pooh referred to the record as "the album of our careers."

Listen, man. It took us a long time to get it right but we did. I love the fact we accomplished the goal but it’s the journey that I’ll always cherish the most. We wrote and recorded every song on this album together. We carried each other. We give y’all the album of our careers, “May The Lord Watch” . . Thank you to everyone that contributed to this album. It wouldn’t have turned out the same way without y’all. (I’ll drop the credits later. I got some champagne to drink) #LBbizness #MTLW #availablenow

Phonte and Big Pooh announced in May that they would be coming back together for a new record, albeit without the production of founding member 9th Wonder, who gave the group his blessing while he continued other projects. Since then, the duo has released a documentary about their surprise live reunion at the 2018 Art of Cool Festival in their home state, which was revealed to have been the spark for their idea to make a new album. Since then, they have stayed relatively mum on details until Aug 19, when they surprised fans with the title, the album cover, and the news that the album would be dropping at midnight.

Little Brother released their debut album The Listening in 2003, before landing a record deal with Atlantic Records and releasing their acclaimed sophomore album The Minstrel Show in 2005. They released two more albums, Getback (2007) and Leftback (2010), before parting ways for their own musical endeavors. Phonte has since made solo albums and group albums with producer Nicolay as the Grammy-winning duo Foreign Exchange, Rapper Big Pooh has released solo albums, and 9th Wonder founded what would become It's A Wonderful World Music Group, which features artists including Grammy-nominated MC Rapsody..
