JAY-Z SETS THE BAR ON DRAKE BUT DRIZZY DON’T AGREE WITH ART:





What’s a little friendly competition…
Early this morning, Jay Electronica shook the Internet up by dropping a freestyle track titled “We Made it,” that featured a few bars from Jay Z, and it’s evident that Jigga doesn’t let too many sneak disses go unaddressed.
Last month, during Drake’s controversial interview with Rolling Stone, he told the magazine that he had a real interest in art, while making this statement about Jay Z:

It’s like Hov can’t drop bars these days without at least four art references. I would love to collect [art] at some point, but I think the whole Rap/art world thing is getting kind of corny.

Of course, Jay has a response to that. In the freestyle, he raps:

Sorry Mr. Drizzy for so much art talkSilly me, rappin’ ’bout sh-t that I really boughtWhile these rappers rap about guns that they ain’t shotAnd a bunch of other silly sh-t that they ain’t got

[You can debate whether he addresses Drake as Mr. or Miss Drizzy but the real tea is that he shouted out a name, and we all know Jay don’t ever address folks directly.]
On a positive tip, our girl Lupita got a shout out:

I’m on my Lupita Nyong’oStuntin’ on stage after 12 Years A SlaveThis Ace of Spades look like an OscarBlack tux, look like a mobster

“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”

Rest in Peace, Tata.

Brain Function ‘Boosted For Days’ After Reading A Novel
From The Independent:

Reading a gripping novel causes biological changes in the brain which last for days as the mind is transported into the body of the protagonist.
Being pulled into the world of a gripping novel can trigger actual, measurable changes in the brain that linger for at least five days after reading, scientists have said.
The new research, carried out at Emory University in the US, found that reading a good book may cause heightened connectivity in the brain and neurological changes that persist in a similar way to muscle memory.
The changes were registered in the left temporal cortex, an area of the brain associated with receptivity for language, as well as the the primary sensory motor region of the brain.
Neurons of this region have been associated with tricking the mind into thinking it is doing something it is not, a phenomenon known as grounded cognition - for example, just thinking about running, can activate the neurons associated with the physical act of running.
“The neural changes that we found associated with physical sensation and movement systems suggest that reading a novel can transport you into the body of the protagonist,” said neuroscientist Professor Gregory Berns, lead author of the study.
“We already knew that good stories can put you in someone else’s shoes in a figurative sense. Now we’re seeing that something may also be happening biologically.”

 A 25 year old rapper by the name J Carter from the low end of Chicago tells us a little history about his self in this month featured artist from chicago,IL. “I have been rapping since elementary school. I took a break after the unfortunate loss of both my parents in high school and continued after beating a serious case my second year of college. Having the charges dropped was a very influential factor in my rap career. It was reason for creating the OGCJM (Only God Can Judge Me) Brand. It also made me “hungry” and more driven to become a successful artist. This summer alone I have created a hit single “No Kelly.” The video for “No Kelly” has almost 40 thousand views on YouTube. I am currently in the process of further marketing myself and brand by performing in and hosting numerous shows here in Chicago. I am very passionate and serious about my career hopefully I will be able to add these plus some of my other attributes to your team.”
