Video: Skillz, Questlove & J.Period Square Off in Hip-Hop 'Beef'
What started as a simple bet turned into “beef” last week - and comedy this week - with the release of Skillz’ “The Last Laugh (J.Period Didn’t Do It! Remix),” the hilarious account of an unpaid $10,000 bet between Roots’ drummer Questlove and ghostwriter extraordinaire, Skillz. Released on September 28 on Skillz, J.Period & Jazzy Jeff’s new Infamous Quotes mixtape, “The Last Laugh (J.Period Didn’t Do It! Remix)” hit blogs Tuesday, prompting a series of sharp responses and subsequent rumors – via twitter, text and blog – causing some to wonder if the escalating “beef” was real. Blasting headlines like “Skillz Declares Rap War on Roots’ Drummer Questlove,” “Questlove Sues Skillz for Slander Over New Diss Record,” J.Period fanned the flames via Twitter, provoking a sparring session between Skillz & Questlove throughout the day on Thursday, October 7. By day’s end, it was even announced that the conflict – like most hip hop squabbles – would require immediate intervention by hip hop’s master mediator, the Nation of Islam’s Minister Louis Farrakhan - read the headlines at: http://www.jperiod.com/skillz - but to no avail. Earlier today, J.Period put the rumors to rest, announcing that he would finally squash the “beef” and present Questlove with a peace offering as a sign of good faith: an olive branch that he hand-delivered to Questo on the set of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Pure comedy. Makes us miss the days when hip hop was still fun!
Freedom Suite Jazz vocalist and multi Grammy nominee Nnenna Freelon joins hip-hop quartet The Beast to release Freedom Suite: a 10-track collection of creative reflections on jazz and hip-hop. Freedom Suite will be available for FREE download, digitally released on Okayplayer's new jazz channel, The Revivalist, on October 26, 2010.
With guest appearances from 9th Wonder, Branford Marsalis, Phonte (of The Foreign Exchange/Little Brother), YahZarah, Geechi Suede (of Camp Lo) and several others, Freedom Suite follows in the tradition of other collaborative jazz and hip-hop projects like the late Guru's Jazzmatazz. The album features six original songs written and produced by The Beast, which are infused with both a live jazz aesthetic (drums, bass, piano, percussion, strings and horns were all recorded live) and an electronic/sample-based hip-hop aesthetic. Freedom Suite also includes five contemporary interpretations of "standards" from the jazz and hip-hop cannon, including arrangements of Mos Def's "Umi Says," Johnny Mercer & Hoagy Charmichael's "Skylark" and Lauryn Hill's "Doo Wop."
Interludes + Conversations on the Album In addition to progressive production and songwriting, Freedom Suite also weaves an intellectual discourse into the album. Between songs, Beast emcee Pierce Freelon engages musicians and scholars such as Questlove, Herbie Hancock, Amiri Baraka, Christian McBridge, James Moody and others in one-on-one discussions about music, culture and life.
The Revivalist Freedom Suite will be released in conjunction with the launch of Okayplayer's new jazz culture blog,The Revivalist, on October 26, 2010.

AllHipHop.com and E1 Entertainment in association with Triplebeam Pictures present the release of the critically-acclaimed Crime/Drama "King Of Paper Chasin'", directed by La Monte Edwards, which is available in select cities on October 15.
This New York City Crime/Drama is inspired by actual events and is brilliantly captured and told by first time feature film director La Monte Edwards, executive produced by Dwayne "DL" Clark.
"I am extremely excited about the movie making its select cities release as there has been a buzz around King Of Paper Chasin' for awhile now, and it’s finally time that other cities get to experience the message behind this story," says Dwayne "DL" Clark, Executive Producer/Lead Actor of the film.
In the city of 9 million people, everyone is engulfed in the everyday rat race chasing that almighty dollar. This movie tells the story of one of its own Carter Blanche (Dwayne "DL" Clark), a self-made entrepreneur who prides himself on the unconventional pursuit of money and success and the dream of becoming a Rap star. Carter has staked his claim to the American dream but history teaches us that behind every wealthy empire is a major crime -- Carter's rise to power is no exception. Trying to go legit to leave his past ways behind, Carter is faced with deception, betrayal, and self serving agendas from those closest to him and must maneuver his way through all those who want to crumble what he has built. As he determines who's friend or foe, the decisions Carter makes can, and will cost lives.
"King Of Paper Chasin'" is led by Triplebeam Entertainment Hip-Hop recording artist Dwayne "DL" Clark, while Actress/Model Piarry Oriol takes on the role of DL's distrusting girlfriend Thaila. Additional cast members include Lauren Hooper (Rachel Anderson), J. Stephen Williams (Uglyman), Joe Soma (Agent Richardson), Jason Rivera (Dell) and Dennis L.A. White (JB) among others.
"I don’t expect everyone to be happy with what I'm doing," says DL who financed this 7 figure project himself to allow the audience a look into his life and past experiences. "But it was a story I wanted to tell. There is a lot of embellishment for entertainment purposes, but for the most part the premise of the movie is based off actual events."
"King Of Paper Chasin'" will hit select theaters on October 17.
