Fiend is one of the hardest working artists in the game. With hits like On My Job, Lil Ghetto Boy, and more, Sleepy Jones stays on the grind dropping bangers and collabs. Visit for his latest releases.


Luca Brasi 2 picks up where Luca Brasi left off. Kevin Gates does it again. The world will eventually hear an Atlantic album but in the meantime the Heat Magazine suggests our readers enjoy his current body of work.

Although there are several artists in Louisiana, the Heat Magazine highlights a few of the artists who have taken it up a notch in 2014. Stay tuned for follow up coverage on the musical mecca known as the “Boot”. Atlanta artists are noteworthy as they have stayed consistent all year.

Webbie Uncensored: Rapper Hits Wal-Mart Dressed In Pajama Bottoms

Sunday, November 6th, 2011

Webbie is tired of the media trying to portray him in a negative light. To remedy that the Louisiana rapper hits up a local Wal-Mart, dressed in pajama bottoms and fields questions from Ozone Magazine’s Julia Beverly about Occupy Wall Street, 9/11 Conspiracy Theories, President Obama, Terrence J and more.

Wednesday, October 26th, 2011

Webbie fired major shots over the weekend aimed at 106 & Park host Terrence J, after being banned from BET. Webbie threatened to physically assault Terrence when he catches up to him.

Monday (October 25) the Louisiana rapper called into Chicago’s Tony Sculfield and the Morning Riot Show to clarify his stance.

“It aint nothing against me and BET. I love BET, I’ve been watching BET all my life. I am BET… BET is black entertainment,” Webbie said. “That was some personal stuff. You know Rocsi and Terrence, that’s his old lady. Y’all go look at that Vibe magazine picture. That’s what happened.”

According to Webbie, he and Rocsi go way back

Webbie Banned From 106 & Park

Sunday, October 16th, 2011

You probably remember the red carpet fiasco earlier this month, when Webbie boasted to a female BET reporter Boss Lady that he has rather large manparts. Seems he’s been up to devilment again, perhaps with yet another female from BET.

This past Friday, Webbie appeared on 106 & Park as a judge for its Freestyle Fridays competition. When they cut to commercial, he was still there – when they returned from commercial, Terrance announced that Webbie was banned from the show.

Nobody is certain of what happened, but is reporting that he may have told Rocsi something inappropriate during the break.

Let us just say, the majority of Louisiana – and all rappers as a whole – are respectable and do not condone such activity. We’re not sure what happened here, but we certainly hope Webbie straightens up and flies right.
