50 Below

To all the real hip hop heads out there, the latest album titled "Brand New Throw Back" by yours truly will be released in less than 12 days! This album is a bar fest with a few heavy hitting indie features to look out for. I kept to what i know on this one, storytelling, letter wars, and metaphors. I don't really want to talk about what's missing from the game because in retrospect, it's really not missing.

 Too many people are content with what is pushed down their throats instead of looking for what they actually want to hear. That, or put blinders on when it's time to show support, share, RT....etc. Let's not do that this time. Presented to you on this day is my 1st release from the album. I hope you all take a bit of time to watch this video. Leave comments on Youtube for me and i will respond! Thank you in advance for not only supporting me, but staying a true fan hip hop!!

Big Ups!!

I honestly just want to thank everybody that took a minute to listen to what i put my heart in to. This is amazing for somebody like myself. When you love what you do it's never work. That being said when you see whats hitting the charts and doing crazy good numbers these days, its hard to stick to your guns and make your own kind of music.

The easy route would be to just start making songs that sound like the 10 other songs they play on the radio every 15 minutes. Nothing has ever been easy for me. So to look at my stats on the years and see numbers like this is a really good feeling.

To each and every one of you that followed me on Spotify, added my songs to your own playlists, and shared my music. I give you my deepest thanks! New album coming soon. Stick around and see what i put on wax! You can find my Spotify page using the link attached to this post, or on my page. If you haven't followed me yet, played any of my music, or added any songs... click this link to check me out! Deebo Mac on Spotify

Thanks in advance and stay tuned. The album release and music videos are in process and on the way. For the love of Hip Hop!! 

Also..... follow me on Spotify!!! I have a few albums on there and that'll be where the new release drops 1st!!!

Father shot while texting daughter's babysitter in movie theater...

Wow.... this stand your ground law is really something else. You cant even go to a movie theater and watch a movie anymore without wondering if someone will get shot! The subject at hand is from the latest news regarding a 71 yr old police officer shooting a person for texting in a movie theater. In my own opinion, this is what happens when idiots/cowards get their hands on firearms, ill go in to detail about that later. It looks like this all started out in Wesley Chapel, Florida (go figure) with 2 moviegoers.... one texting during the movie...the other pissed off about it. Don't get me wrong, there is nothing worse than some douche that doesn't have the decency to at least put their phone on vibrate during a movie i paid to watch. If i can do it, they can too.

But this is taking things way too far. 71 yr old retired police officer Curtis Reeves (Right side of picture) had serious words with the texter over this very issue. When he couldn't have his way, he walks out to find a manager. He comes back minutes later after striking out and another altercation took place, only this time Chad Oulson (text victim with wife on left side of picture) wasn't so lucky. Voices raised..... anger levels elevated... somehow popcorn was thrown at the grumpy old cop.... then a shot was fired. Mr Oulson was shot, his wife trying to protect her husband was also shot (hand) all over something that wasn't that serious at all.

In my attempt to make this story as concise as possible, quite a few details were left out. The bottom line is this, far too many people gather metal courage with a gun by their sides. They are less apt to look for another way to handle things and as a result of this, people die. Is the victim Chad Oulson to blame in this case? Or is the shooter? Why did this even have to come down to one person loosing their life? In my eyes the shooter was too lazy to find another way to handle the situation. He did try to find a mgr...but gave up after a couple minutes. If a man lost his life by this guy for texting during a movie... how many people lost their lives on his watch as a cop that didn't deserve to?

I'm not, nor will i ever say all guns should be taken away. I have a safe full of guns. I don't have to walk around parading mine though. I don't see the need to. I feel like people in some states use guns unnecessarily and hide behind these laws that only protect a certain few. People loose their lives every day because nobody wants to take the time to find ways to not only de escalate, but resolve situations before they get blown out of proportion. I don't care what type of environment you come from, there is always another way. Here you have a man that lost his life all because a RETIRED police officer (with a history of complaining about people on their phones in theaters) somehow felt threatened by popcorn being thrown in his direction. Why look for a manager again when you can just shoot the guy right? I can only hope this is the most expensive bullet he will ever pay for. Cops treat almost everyone like a suspect, they have the shortest tempers of anyone known to man, people that should not have guns usually have the most...and carry them everywhere, and people die just trying to use their right to free speech. Reeves in being charged with second degree murder...good. Only in America is it this bad. Can we guns allowed and use the same system in place for college games? Metal detectors and security at the doors? My condolences to the family involved.

Ok people...leave a comment and share your thoughts on this one...

The power of a magazine...

Today's world barely has time for anything at all. Everything is being made faster to accommodate a faster pace in life. Video sites like YouTube are still prevalent, but up and coming sites like "vines" are beginning to take over. Nobody has time for even a 3 minute video....our maybe they are too impatient? I guess that's another blog. This brings me to the subject at hand.

Magazines have been around for decades. Anyone who was anyone would be found in a magazine. For some people, magazines helped them gain popularity which may have in turn boosted their career.

We all know times change by the minute. Now websites pose a threat to magazines because people are on the internet more than anything. A link to an article someone with a large following posted...could do the same as a magazine article. Maybe even cost the artist less money.

My question is this. Are magazines (hard copy) still the way to go in this day and age? Or should an up and coming artist be looking towards having articles posted on major websites?

Let me know what your thoughts are! Comment and share...thanks!

If there is more to this story that someone knows, please let me know. What i watched made me extremely upset. The son, trying to protect his mother...has a felony now...all because she flips out and runs from the police. What was the officer supposed to do after he had to chase her down..... apologize for pulling her over? How much of an idiot do you have to be to disobey a direct order given by a cop and expect things to go smooth? Other officers pull up shortly after this incident escalates.... a cop shoots at the van as she speeds off....AGAIN!!

Do i think that cop was in the wrong for shooting? Cant really say to be honest. Does he know there were kids in the car? I do have to say...when the first cops runs towards his car, there is no doubt he saw the cop with gun drawn. Maybe he could've said there were children in the car and that situation ends different? That minivan was NOT going to outrun a cop car. There is always a safer way to tone the situation down. That being said...i believe that goes for both the officer and the driver. All this happens because of that woman. Her son and kids almost died because she was too ignorant to just turn the damn car off and take the ticket. Before i hear anyone talkin about racism in reference to these cops... just keep in mind, all she had to do was take the ticket like the rest of us. This woman and her ignorance just screwed her sons life up and almost ended it trying to protect his mother even tho she was CLEARLY in the wrong. Leave a comment! What are your thoughts??
