J DOE is featured on the song as the hook. With the release of the track, The LOX made a statement asserting that they want peace, acknowledged and praised good policing but understands there is a big issue with police brutality which needs to be address.

"We want peace."

"We do not hate police nor do we want police to hate us, but there is a divide in communities across this country. We feel like we (minorities) are a perceived enemy. We salute and acknowledge the good officers of the community around America but recognition of good does not prevent us from addressing what is taking place across the nation."

Prepping her fans and listeners for the release of her fifth studio album, Fantasia previewed a few tracks off the project. Her new album, "The Definition Of..." embodies 11 songs with features by Stacy Barthe, Aloe Blacc and Tye Tribbett.

"In this album, I wanted to embody James Brown, Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin, Bonnie Raitt," Fantasia conveyed during a recent interview.

The Definition Of... is a liberating movement for Fantasia, as she confronts, reflects and comes face to face with some of the struggles she's encountered, endured; and overcame in life. She's intimate on the album, where Fantasia gets naked with her listeners and exudes raw emotions, revealing parts about herself. On the track 'Ugly,' Fantasia brings awareness about societal depiction of body image and beauty, how it affects the confidence and self esteem of women who will do anything, even if it means harming themselves to live up to society's standards. 'Stay Up' is a song to fuel the passion and power in others to never stay down. The Definition Of... closes with 'I Made It,' a gospel infused song that moves through the souls of others and redeems with the power of music.

Fantasia enlisted R Kelly, Jerome “J-Roc” Harmon, Ron Fiar, Brian Kennedy; and more as her production team.

The album can be streamed and downloaded below via Apple Music.

Joe Budden's Freestyle on The Funkmaster Flex Show

Posted On: August 01, 2016

Joe Budden recently stirred the pot and started beefin' with Drake. Prior to that, he took several shots at Meek Mill and Nicki Minaj back in June.

His beef with Drake took an epic turn when he was confronted by the 6 God's fans and ended up being the jokes of memes on social media. I'm sure you guys saw those memes and just in case you missed some of them, here's one to refresh your memory below.

Budden recently made an appearance on HOT 97's Funkmaster Flex Show to set the record straight. He took the mic and let off a freestyle over the instrumentals to Fabolous classic track, 'Breathe.' Instead of squashing his beef or any kind of conflicts, Budden added more fuel to the fire and blazed his freestyle. He took some more jabs at Drake during his lyrical exercise.

Hmmm, so far Drake has not made an official response and in the art of war, we've witnessed how the 6 God moves.

Check out the freestyle below.


Did he slaughter the mic or not? Hmmm, Budden needs to take all that aggravation and go to the studios.
