Anaconda, Bailey Jay, and Baller Alert: Baller Alert's Today in Hip-Hop: Kanye West Released 'The College Dropout' 14 Years Ago @balleralert DD PARENTAL ADVISORY EXPLICIT CONTENT Baller Alert’s Today in Hip-Hop: Kanye West Released ‘The College Dropout’ 14 Years Ago-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ On Feb. 10, 2004, Kanye West released his debut studio album ‘The College Dropout’ on Roc-A-Fella Records and Def Jam Recordings. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ From 1999 to the year of its release, West spent years working on the project. While working on the album, West had already established himself as a producer having done production for artists such as Jay-Z and Talib Kweli. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Doing his own production, West created a masterpiece. Not only did he develop a new sound nicknamed “chipmunk soul," where he took R&B and Soul samples and sped them up, but his lyricism also introduced us to a new style. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ While many rappers of the time maintained the gangsta rap style we were used to, West instead introduced us to the story of the average joe who questions family, religion, politics, and more. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ The singles from the album, "Through the Wire" and "Jesus Walks", were both critically acclaimed, while “All Falls Down" and "Slow Jamz" charted in the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Upon its release, the album debuted at number two on the US Billboard 200 chart having sold 441,000 copies in the first week. ‘The College Dropout’ received phenomenal reviews from multiple publications and even earned West 10 Grammy nominations. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Multiple publications such as Time and Rolling Stone have named it one of the greatest albums of all time.

Family, Jay, and Jay Z: George Zimmerman Threatens Violence Against Jay Z Over Travvon Martin Documentary:"I know how to handle people who f*ck with me, I have since February 2012." George Zimmerman Threatens Violence Against Jay Z Over Trayvon Martin Documentary: “I know how to handle people who f*ck with me, I have since February 2012.” – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For some odd reason, GeorgeZimmerman is still walking the streets, bumping his gums and making headlines for his attacks on black men. Just five years after the fatal shooting of a young Trayvon Martin, his killer has threatened violence against JayZ over a documentary about the life and untimely death of Martin. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to @the.root , Jay Z announced that he was working behind the scenes of a 6-part documentary about Martin’s life. Based on a book by attorney Lisa Bloom, the documentary, which is titled, “Rest in Power: The TrayvonMartin Story,” is being produced by the Harvey Weinstein-less Weinstein Company, alongside Michael Gasparro, who will create and executive-produce the project. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, Zimmerman has pushed back on the film, as he told The Blast that Gasparro and his production team have been harassing his parents and family members in Florida for an interview and footage. As a result, he told the publication that he wants to “beat Jay Z” and feed him to “an alligator,” just before referring to the murder of Martin, saying, “I know how to handle people who f*ck with me, I have since February 2012.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to The Blast, Zimmerman is also upset about a payment his ex-wife received for her participation in the documentary. However, he says his family has yet to receive a payment, although he refused to elaborate on their willingness to appear on film. In any case, the man is upset. However, the jury is still out on whether or not anyone cares.

Jay, Jay Z, and Meek Mill: JAY-Z Pens Report In Support Of Meek Mill: "Probation ls A Trap And We Must Fight For Meek And Everyone Else Unjustly Sent To Prison" @balleralert JAY-Z Pens Report In Support Of Meek Mill: "Probation Is A Trap And We Must Fight For Meek And Everyone Else Unjustly Sent To Prison" - blogged by @baetoven_ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In an opinion piece for the NewYorkTimes titled, “The Criminal Justice System Stalks Black People Like Meek Mill," JAYZ outlined flaws in the criminal justice system and continued his support of his Roc Nation artist in the wake of Meek’s recent prison sentence. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Jay-Z begins by arguing that "For about a decade, [Meek]'s been stalked by a system that considers the slightest infraction a justification for locking him back inside." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "What’s happening to MeekMill is just one example of how our criminal justice system entraps and harasses hundreds of thousands of black people every day," the "4:44" artist wrote. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "Probation is a trap and we must fight for Meek and everyone else unjustly sent to prison," he continued. "It’s time we highlight the random ways people trapped in the criminal justice system are punished every day. The system treats them as a danger to society, consistently monitors and follows them for any minor infraction — with the goal of putting them back in prison." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Jay-Z concluded the piece by directing readers to Color of Change, an organization that advocates for courts to treat people on parole or probation in Philadelphia more fairly. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The music mogul, who previously called Meek's sentence "unjust and heavy-handed" also stopped his show in Dallas last week to denounce Meek's two to four-year prison sentence.
