Almost half of the music clips made for hip hop's biggest hits in the past five years have featured scenes of smoking or vaping, researchers said Monday. "Music videos offer largely unregulated opportunities for exposure to, and brand advertising of, combustible and electronic tobacco and marijuana products," said a report published in the Journal of the America Medical Association. The report warned that product placement for particular brands of smoking gear was on the rise in videos for hip hop music, which is the most popular genre in the United States. Kristin Knutzen, a researcher in public health at Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy, and two of her colleagues logged smoking in music clips that made Billboard magazine's hip hop charts between 2013 and 2017. They tallied the number of portrayals of smoking, be it joints, cigarettes or e-cigarettes. Of the 1,250 songs that made the Billboard 'Top 50' hip hop and R&B chart, between 40 to 50 percent had clips that featured … [Read more...] about Around half of hip hop videos feature smoking, researchers say

ONCE known for his slick beats and rap skills, American Music Award nominated star Tyga is now better known for his love life dramas with his ex loves, Blac Chyna and Kylie Jenner. He is now reportedly dating Iggy Azalea - here is everything you need to know about the Rack City rapper... Who is Tyga and what is his background?

Published June 12, 2015 Wow, can you believe our bar guide is five years old already? That means, in just 15 years, it will be old enough to go drinking downtown. And it’ll definitely know all the best places when it does. Over the last few weeks, we sent our team (who previously could have been described as “fresh-faced and intrepid”, but are now more “grey-faced and shaking”) to grab a beer, people-watch, and take in the atmosphere of Reykjavík’s many downtown bars, and report back accordingly. In total, we went to just shy of fifty bars. This included a fresh look at all of the places we covered last year. And while that might seem like retreading old ground, downtown Reykjavík is actually a bar merry-go-round on which places are constantly opening, closing, changing spaces, changing floors, changing names, taking back a previous name, or even reviving a long-dead one. Bars here also regularly change hands, and when they … [Read more...] about THE GRAPEVINE’S BIG-ASS BAR GUIDE 2015!
