Spike Lee Chance the Rapper

Filmmaker and director Spike Lee has hit back at Chance the Rapper’s criticism of his new movie Chi-Raq, claiming that the rap star’s father works for the Mayor of Chicago and that his perspective is therefore skewed.

Chance the Rapper

After the death of Chicago music pro DJ Rashad (real name Rashad Harden) made news over the weekend, condolences have been pouring from artists from the local music scene, as well as the music business at large. The 34-year-old musician was found dead on Saturday afternoon in a West 21st Street apartment, Chicago Police spokeswoman Janel Sedevic confirmed Sunday for the Sun-Times. The presence of drugs and drug paraphernalia around the body led the police to suspect an overdose as the likely cause of death.

DJ Rashad was on the verge of a career breakthrough.

At 34, Harden was on the verge of a career breakthrough with his new EP, We On 1. His fifth studio album received some glowing reviews and his music was getting play in clubs and on radio stations across the world. Rashad was also going to perform several club gigs outside of the US. The genre he performed was called footwork. Named for the fast-paced dance moves associated with it, footwork incorporates fast bass lines, synths and chopped up samples of rap, R&B and pop songs. Footwork originated in Chicago about a decade ago and has recently started entering the festival and club circuits.

Justin Bieber Pursues "Confident" And Vaguely Uninterested Lady In Video, Feat Chance The Rapper


Justin Bieber Chance the Rapper

Amidst all the turmoil, the controversy and the arrest, Justin Bieber has also done that thing that pop stars like to do sometimes – he’s released a new video. The track is a collaboration with Chance the Rapper and admittedly has a pretty catchy beat. The video features some of Justin’s favorite thing – a pretty young woman, a club, choreographed dancing and the kind of car that tends to get the Biebs into trouble.

Justin Bieber, Believe World Premiere
In between getting arrested and not giving a monkey's about being arrested, Justin even had time to release a video.

The song was released last month as the tenth and final video in Bieber’s Music Monday series. The video, directed by Colin Tiley, has an early Justin Timberlake feel to it, in that there’s a lot of dim lighting, smoke machines and a little friendly stalking of the potential love interest. Also does anyone else think the Confident video reused the club set from Justin Timberlake’s Senorita video from 2003? No?
