It was my pleasure to speak with legendary Hip Hop icon: The 45 King. We conversed about many other ground-breaking Hip-Hop artists which The 45 King made HITS for including Queen Latifah and Kurtis Blow.
If you’re interested (I was) to learn how one of Hip Hop’s premiere artists came up with the name “The 45 King”, I encourage all my readers to check this interview. Not only will you learn about the background of his stage name, but he’ll also share with you his experiences while working with “New Kids On The Block” as well as Pop’s diva – Madonna.
This legend has worked with countless major artists in the music business. Who do you think produced Eminem’s hit record “Stan”?.
“To this day, not one person has come out after four-years and said anything that I said in that documentary was incorrect. My senior producer read that book, his only comment was ‘you’re a great writer’ – even he didn’t say the stories I told were untrue.”~ David K. Far-El
HSK Exclusive - He’s a man who has earned well-deserved respect from many industry insiders for standing his ground. You may remember HSK first introduced you to David K. Far-El, just weeks ago, as the former BET producer spoke out against the powers that be at BET – namely BET President Stephen Hill, who Far-El says uses his position to sexually extort male employees. That is just one of the many encounters laid out in Far-El’s new book.
In this fourth and final part of Jacky Jasper’s exclusive interview with the man who brought us “Confessions of a BET Producer” and author of “BET, DBrad & Me”, Far-El breaks down his no holds barred read chronicling his behind-the-scenes experiences in the world of entertainment. “It’s a look into how symbology and mythology being used in popular culture affects the masses,” Far-El explains. “And how they view themselves just from a hip hop perspective.”
During their very candid conversation, Far-El explains to Jacky why he credits some of his ‘pushing the envelope’ style to Dave Chappelle. “He was like a mentor, he told me a lot,” Far-El explains. “I learned. He would tell me why he would do certain things, why he would take things all the way to the left – you go as hard as you can go, because it’s the station’s job to edit.” Continue Reading…
“I got a hundred racks right now…we could take lie detector tests on some Maury shit! Tell the mutha fucka to do that polygraph, and ask him ‘Did Slim lie on you?’” ~ Loose Canon S.L.I.M
HSK Exclusive – As the tension between Nelly and his former associate Loose Canon S.L.I.M. continues, the St. Louis promoter is speaking out against the rapper and former friend while challenging Nelly to test his allegations. “Ask that nigga if anything I said is a lie,” said S.L.I.M., as he offered up $100K to bet against Nelly’s allegations against him. “He’s a gambling mutha fucka!” Continue Reading…

“Funkmaster Flex is exploiting hip hop artists for his own benefit”
HSK EXCLUSIVE - Many may be scared to say it. Some may not have a platform to speak it. But for those of you who want to hear it, Benzino has said it best so far! And don’t get it twisted,
Zino asked me not to promote his new album so it wouldn’t be misconstrued, but fuck it cuz dude deserves some respect for continuing to speak his mind on this shit we love called HIPHOP!
In this third and last part of his exclusive interview with The Source and Hip Hop Weekly founder, Jacky Jasper listens as Benzino preaches the hip hop word.
“If you are stifling the creativity of artists in the Tristate area, how do you expect New York to get on?”
So who’s to blame for doing that stifling which Benzino speaks of? For starters, Benzino say there’s Funkmaster Flex leading the pack. Now, it just may be that Flex’s hypocritical bias could be coming back to bite him in the ass.
“Flex called me the worst rapper in the world…he needs to get at the worst rapper in the world right now”
Take a listen to a real dude who isn’t afraid to speak his mind and let the truth be heard, as he explains to Jacky “It starts with the perceived number one station in New York Hot 97. As long as that vehicle continues doing what they’ve been doing and practicing what they’ve been practicing, rappers will not get on in New York City.”
“They’re real clicked-up up there. They ruin careers and they blacklist people.”
HSK EXCLUSIVE - As Hot 97′s popular New York City hip hop personalities continue to turn a blind eye to Mister Cee’s recent shocking arrest, Benzino is speaking out saying enough is enough.
“If he (Mister Cee) would have been caught with a female prostitute, it still would have been wrong at the end of the day because he’s still representing the station…the station represents the city.”
In this second part of his exclusive interview with rapper who brought us The Source magazine and Hip Hop Weekly, Jacky Jasper agrees that many hip hop DJ’s like Funkmaster Flex are to blame for turning hip hop into something it was never meant to be. As a result, the next generation of hip hop will sadly suffer from its metamorphosis. That’s exactly why Benzino says he’s taking a stance against the powers that be at Hot 97.
“They are immoral…they are irresponsible…look at all the shoot outs that happened up there…again, wife beating…again, sterotyping of a culture…prostitution…I mean everything goes on up there, and guess what? The next morning everybody’s still on. Why? Because nobody’s saying nothing.” Continue Reading…
HSK Exclusive - As Hot 97 undergoes sharp criticism for attempting to sweep scandal surrounding a list of its radio personalities (including Mister Cee and Funkmaster Flex) under the rug, Benzino is speaking out. In this exclusive interview with the rapper who brought us The Source magazine, Jacky Jasper uncovers how people like Funkmaster Flex have single-handedly destroyed radio and hip hip.
Part 1 of a 3 part series:
“As long as the staff at Hot 97, which has been there for years and been doing suspect shit for years…as long as they’re up there, New York will never be the same.” Continue Reading…
