The borough is coextensive with New York County, one of the original counties of the U. S. state of New York. The borough consists of Manhattan Island, bounded by the Hudson and Harlem rivers. S. mainland, physically connected to the Bronx and separated from the rest of Manhattan by the Harlem River. Manhattan Island is divided into three informally bounded components, each aligned with the borough's long axis: Lower and Upper Manhattan. Manhattan has been described as the cultural, financial and entertainment capital of the world, the borough hosts the United Nations Headquarters. Anchored by Wall Street in the Financial District of Lower Manhattan, New York City has been called both the most economically powerful city and the leading financial center of the world, Manhattan is home to the world's two largest stock exchanges by total market capitalization: the New York Stock Exchange and NASDAQ.
Many multinational media conglomerates are based in Manhattan, the borough has been the setting for numerous books and television shows. Manhattan real estate has since become among the most expensive in the world, with the value of Manhattan Island, including real estate, estimated to exceed US$3 trillion in 2013. Manhattan traces its origins to a trading post founded by colonists from the Dutch Republic in 1624 on Lower Manhattan. Manhattan is documented to have been purchased by Dutch colonists from Native Americans in 1626 for 60 guilders, which equals $1038 in current terms; the territory and its surroundings came under English control in 1664 and were renamed New York after King Charles II of England granted the lands to his brother, the Duke of York. New York, based in present-day Manhattan, served as the capital of the United States from 1785 until 1790; the Statue of Liberty greeted millions of immigrants as they came to the Americas by ship in the late 19th and early 20th centuries and is a world symbol of the United States and its ideals of liberty and peace.
Manhattan became a borough during the consolidation of New York City in 1898. New York County is the United States' second-smallest county by land area, is the most densely populated U. S. county. It is one of the most densely populated areas in the world, with a census-estimated 2017 population of 1,664,727 living in a land area of 22.83 square miles, or 72,918 residents per square mile, higher than the density of any individual U. S. city. On business days, the influx of commuters increases this number to over 3.9 million, or more than 170,000 people per square mile. Manhattan has the third-largest population of New York City's five boroughs, after Brooklyn and Queens, is the smallest borough in terms of land area. Manhattan Island is informally divided into three areas, each aligned with its long axis: Lower and Upper Manhattan.

Numerous colleges and universities are located in Manhattan, including Columbia University, New York University, Cornell Tech, Weill Cornell Medical College, Rockefeller University, which have been ranked among the top 40 in the world; the name Manhattan derives from the Munsee dialect of the Lenape language'manaháhtaan'. The Lenape word has been translated as "the place where we get bows" or "place for gathering the bows". According to a Munsee tradition recorded in the 19th century, the island was named so for a grove of hickory trees at the lower end, considered ideal for the making of bows.
It was first recorded in writing as Manna-hata, in the 1609 logbook of Robert Juet, an officer on Henry Hudson's yacht Halve Maen. A 1610 map depicts the name as Manna-hata, twice, on both the west and east sides of the Mauritius River. Alternative folk etymologies include "island of many hills", "the island where we all became intoxicated" and "island", as well as a phrase descriptive of the whirlpool at Hell Gate; the area, now Manhattan was long inhabited by the Lenape Native Americans. In 1524, Florentine explorer Giovanni da Verrazzano – sailing in service of King Francis I of France – became the first documented European to visit the area that would become New York City, he entered the tidal strait now known as The Narrows and named the land around Upper New York
MTV Cribs is a documentary television program that originated on MTV and features tours of the houses and mansions of celebrities. MTV produces short-form episodes of the program and distributes it through Snapchat Discover; the first show aired in September 2000. By 2005, Cribs had featured tours of the homes of over 185 celebrities, musicians and athletes over the course of 13 seasons; the show was narrated by Ananda Lewis narrated by Su-chin Pak of MTV News. It was developed by Nina L. Díaz, who has gone on to develop My Super Sweet 16 for MTV. A short iteration on CMT was titled CMT Cribs; the most watched and replayed episode of Cribs was a special one-hour edition touring Mariah Carey's New York penthouse. In 2005/2006, MTV Canada produced a series of Canadian-made Cribs episodes. A new season of Cribs, filmed in high definition, started in August 2007 with a new format, title sequences, new narrator and on-screen graphics. A "Priciest Pads" special was created to kick off the new season, hosted by Kimora Lee Simmons.
The show was put into syndication in September 2008, to be offered by local television stations on a weekday basis in the United States by Litton Entertainment. However, the Litton versions of the program were edited and changed. Any references to MTV were scrubbed out, the program received a new logo referring to it as just Cribs, while all music, played in the original episodes was replaced by production music to avoid royalty fees. Although Lewis and Pak were still listed in the episode credits as narrators, all narration was stripped in the re-edited episodes, and'coming up' segments were either silent or voiced by an uncredited announcer; the syndicated version was unsuccessful and offered in barter form on the lower-rated stations in many markets in abysmal timeslots, in September 2008 was removed from the market. On January 24, 2009, Cribs created a separate version specific to CMT, dedicating itself to country music artists, stock car drivers and professional bullriders, other southeastern United States culture figures.
New episodes were taped to air on CMT with the CMT Cribs title. In 2009, the MTV format switched to Teen Cribs, which featured the homes of regular teenagers living in large and otherwise notable homes, straying away from the celebrity element; the main MTV Cribs series restarted in September 2010 with repackaging and updates of its previous visits including such celebrities as Hanson, Twiggy Ramirez and others. The main MTV Cribs series created and broadcast a few new episodes in late 2010 and early 2011, featuring the homes of Penn Jillette, Julie Benz and Manny Pacquiao, others; the show was revived again for MTV as a short-form series with new episodes on Snapchat Discover beginning on June 3, 2017 with new episodes every Saturday for a number of weeks. The revival was announced in April 2016 under former MTV president Sean Atkins; the first season was the highest rated premiere for a Snapchat Show and a second season premieres mid-2018. Several celebrities either have been accused or admitted to using other people's property and claimed them as their own.
In 2004, a lawsuit was brought against MTV by the real owner of Ja Rule's house alleging unauthorized taping of the interior and damage to the property caused by Ja Rule's partying. The first MTV Cribs episode with Robbie Williams showcased Jane Seymour's house as his home. In reality, Williams was renting the home from actress Jane Seymour. In an episode of The Kumars at No. 42, Seymour confirmed. Williams admitted the con and showed off his real home in a episode. 50 Cent's MTV Cribs episode showed him with three Ferraris with 50 Cent claiming they were his "whips". All three Ferraris were in fact owned by a private collector who lent out the vehicles for 50 Cent's Cribs episode and related music video work. Kim Kardashian's episode of MTV Cribs was not filmed at her home; the episode shows her mother's home in Hidden Hills and not Kim's home, which at the time of the episode's production was located in Beverly Hills. JoJo revealed that her episode of MTV Cribs was not filmed at her place, since she and her mother did not have a home then.
Instead, the episode was filmed at her uncle's house. Official website CMT Cribs Cribs on IMDb Cribs at TV.com
Marcel Theo Hall, better known by his stage name Biz Markie, is an American rapper, beatboxer, DJ, comedian, television personality and spokesperson. Hall is best known for his 1989 single "Just a Friend", which became a Top 40 hit in several countries. In 2008, "Just a Friend" made #100 on VH1's list of the 100 greatest hip hop songs of all time. Biz Markie lives in Howard County and has helped support County Executive Ken Ulman during his fundraisers. Markie has been called the "Clown Prince of Hip Hop." Markie's career began on Long Island and he graduated from Patchogue-Medford High School in 1982. Biz Markie was interviewed in the 1986 cult documentary Big Fun In The Big Town. Markie released his debut album, Goin' Off, in 1988, which attracted a fair amount of attention due to the lead single, "Make the Music With Your Mouth, Biz"; the album featured the underground hit singles "Nobody Beats The Biz", "Vapors", "Pickin' Boogers". On October 10, 1989, Biz Markie's second studio album, The Biz Never Sleeps, was released on Cold Chillin'/Warner Bros.
Records, produced by Biz, his cousin Cool V and Paul C. The single "Just a Friend", in which he alternates between rap and singing, became Markie's most successful single, reaching #9 on the Billboard charts; the song interpolates the 1968 song "You Got What I Need" by singer/songwriter Freddie Scott, whose basic chord and melody provided the base for the song's chorus. "Just A Friend" was ranked 81st on VH1's 100 Greatest One-Hit Wonders in 2000, as number 100 on VH1's 100 Greatest Songs of Hip Hop in 2008. The music video, directed by Lionel C. Martin, chronicles the rapper's woman problems. Markie's third studio album I Need a Haircut was released on August 27, 1991, on Cold Chillin'/Warner Bros. Records and was produced by Biz Markie and his cousin Cool V. Sales of the album were low when Markie was served a lawsuit by Gilbert O'Sullivan, who claimed that the album's "Alone Again" featured an unauthorized sample from his hit "Alone Again". O'Sullivan's claim was upheld in a landmark ruling, Grand Upright Music, Ltd. v. Warner Bros. Records Inc. that altered the landscape of hip-hop, finding that all samples must be cleared with the original artist before being used.
In accordance with the ruling, Warner Bros. the parent company of Cold Chillin', had to pull I Need a Haircut from circulation, all companies had to clear samples with the samples' creators before releasing the records. This development reflected the increasing popularity of hip-hop and the financial stakes over which releases were set. Biz responded in 1993 with the mischievously titled All Samples Cleared!, but his career had been hurt by the publicity emanating from the lawsuit, the record suffered accordingly. Additional bad news came when the video for the track'Toilet Stool Rap' was labeled Worst Video of the Year on the Fromage show from Canada's MuchMusic. For the remainder of the decade, Markie made television appearances, including guest appearances on In Living Color and in a 1996 freestyle rap commercial on MTV2, he made numerous guest appearances with the Beastie Boys on Check Your Head, Ill Communication, Hello Nasty, their anthology The Sounds of Science. He rapped on the song "Schizo Jam", on Don Byron's 1998 release, Nu Blaxploitation and worked with Canibus on the first track on the Office Space soundtrack.
He rapped on the track "So Fresh" alongside Slick Rick on Will Smith's 1999 album Willennium. In 1996, Markie appeared on the Red Hot Organization's compilation CD, America is Dying Slowly, alongside Wu-Tang Clan and Fat Joe, among others; the CD, meant to raise awareness of the AIDS epidemic among African American men, was heralded as a masterpiece by The Source magazine. In 1997, Markie appeared on the Rolling Stones' song "Anybody Seen My Baby?" on their album Bridges to Babylon. His part was shortened on some radio versions. Biz teamed up with Frankie Cutlass on his third single and music video titled "The Cypher Part 3" with some of Marley Marl's Juice Crew veterans. In 1999, Markie appeared on Len's song "Beautiful Day" on their album. In 2002, Markie appeared in Men in Black II, with Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones playing an alien parody of himself, whose native language sounded like beatboxing. Between 2002 and 2003 he appeared in episode 5 of the TV series Fastlane playing himself as a nightclub DJ.
In 2003 he appeared in the international television series titled Kung Faux performing a series of voice over characters featured in a variety of episodes. In 2004, his song Vapors appeared on the soundtrack of Rockstar's popular videogame Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas which featured an old school hip hop radio station, Playback FM. In 2005, Biz detoured from his recording duties to appear on the first season of the television show Celebrity Fit Club which challenged celebrities to lose weight by a combination of diet and exercise. Biz Markie lost more weight than anybody else in the competition; that year, he was in an episode of The Andy Milonakis Show. Biz Markie was a cast member on Nick Cannon's Wild'n Out, seasons 1 and 3. Biz does the beatboxing segment, Biz's Beat of the Day on the Nick Jr. show Yo Gabba Gabba!.

Lower East Side
The Lower East Side, sometimes abbreviated as LES, is a neighborhood in the southeastern part of the New York City borough of Manhattan located between the Bowery and the East River, Canal Street and Houston Street. Traditionally an immigrant, working class neighborhood, it began rapid gentrification in the mid-2000s, prompting the National Trust for Historic Preservation to place the neighborhood on their list of America's Most Endangered Places; the Lower East Side is part of Manhattan Community District 3 and its primary ZIP Code is 10002. It is patrolled by the 7th Precinct of the New York City Police Department; the Lower East Side is bounded by the Bowery to the west, East Houston Street to the north, the FDR Drive to the east and Canal Street to the south. The western boundary below Grand Street veers east off of the Bowery to Essex Street; the neighborhood is bordered in the south and west by Chinatown – which extends north to Grand Street, in the west by Nolita and in the north by the East Village.
The "Lower East Side" referred to the area alongside the East River from about the Manhattan Bridge and Canal Street up to 14th Street, bounded on the west by Broadway. It included areas known today as East Village, Alphabet City, Bowery, Little Italy, NoLIta. Parts of the East Village are still known as Loisaida, a Latino pronunciation of "Lower East Side". Politically, the neighborhood is located in 12th congressional districts, it is in 74th district. As was all of Manhattan Island, the area now known as the Lower East Side was occupied by members of the Lenape tribe, who were organized in bands which moved from place to place according to the seasons, fishing on the rivers in the summer, moving inland in the fall and winter to gather crops and hunt for food, their main trail took the route of Broadway. One encampment in the Lower East Side area, near Corlears Hook was called Naghtogack; the population of the Dutch colony of New Amsterdam was located below the current Fulton Street, while north of it were a number of small plantations and large farms called bouwerij at the time.
Around these farms were a number of enclaves of free or "half-free" Africans, which served as a buffer between the Dutch and the Native Americans. One of the largest of these was located along the modern Bowery between Prince Street and Astor Place; these black farmers were some of the earliest settlers of the area. During the 17th century, there was an overall consolidation of the boweries and farms into larger parcels, much of the Lower East side was part of the Delancy farm. James Delancey's pre-Revolutionary farm east of post road leading from the city survives in the names Delancey Street and Orchard Street. On the modern map of Manhattan, the Delancey farm is represented in the grid of streets from Division Street north to Houston Street. In response to the pressures of a growing city, Delancey began to survey streets in the southern part of the "West Farm" in the 1760s. A spacious projected Delancey Square—intended to cover the area within today's Eldridge, Essex and Broome Streets—was eliminated when the loyalist Delancey family's property was confiscated after the American Revolution.
The city Commissioners of Forfeiture eliminated the aristocratic planned square for a grid, effacing Delancey's vision of a New York laid out like the West End of London. The point of land on the East River now called Corlears Hook was called Corlaers Hook under Dutch and British rule, Crown Point during British occupation in the Revolution, it was named after the schoolmaster Jacobus van Corlaer, who settled on this "plantation" that in 1638 was called by a Europeanized version of its Lenape name, Nechtans or Nechtanc. Corlaer sold the plantation to Wilhelmus Hendrickse Beekman, founder of the Beekman family of New York. On February 25, 1643, volunteers from the New Amsterdam colony killed thirty Wiechquaesgecks at their encampment at Corlears Hook, as part of Kieft's War, in retaliation for ongoing conflicts between the colonists and the natives of the area, including their unwillingness to pay tribute, their refusal to turn over the killer of a colonist; the projection into the East River that retained Corlaer's name was an important landmark for navigators for 300 years.
On older maps and documents it is spelled Corlaers Hook, but since the early 19th century the spelling has been anglicized to Corlears. The rough unplanned settlement that developed at Corlaer's Hook under the British occupation of New York during the Revolution was separated from the densely populated city by rough hills of glacial till: "this region lay beyond the city proper, from which it was separated by high and rough hills", observers recalled in 1843; as early as 1816, Corlears Hook was notorious for streetwalkers, "a resort for the lewd and abandoned of both sexes", in 1821 its "streets abounding every night with preconcerted groups of thieves and prostitutes" were noted by the "Christian Herald". In the course of the 19th century they came to be called hookers. In the summer of cholera in New York, 1832, a two-storey wooden workshop was commandeered to serve as a makeshift cholera hospital. In 1833, Corlear's Hook was the location of some of the first tenements built in New York C
Three 6 Mafia
Three 6 Mafia is an American hip hop group from Memphis, Tennessee formed in 1991. Their music has been variously described as Southern hip hop, hardcore hip hop and gangsta rap; the group released their debut album Mystic Stylez in 1995 through Prophet Entertainment, a record label they co-created but relinquished control of in favor of a new label that they created but had full ownership and control of, Hypnotize Minds. In 2006 the group won the Academy Award for Best Original Song at the 78th Academy Awards for their song "It's Hard out Here for a Pimp" from the movie Hustle & Flow. Two of their albums are RIAA-certified Platinum: When the Smoke Clears: Sixty 6, Sixty 1 and Most Known Unknown, the latter featured their well-known single "Stay Fly", which itself achieved 2x Multi-Platinum RIAA certification status; the group's latest studio album, Last 2 Walk, was released in 2008. Three 6 Mafia's worldwide album sales stand at 5.5 million as of 2016. Three 6 Mafia's founding members became musicians at young ages.
In 1988, DJ Paul, at age 11, was taking piano lessons, his older brother, Lord Infamous, age 15, was a singer practicing bass and electric guitar. Paul could play piano and drums, Infamous played bass and guitar. With that, the two would compose songs together. At the same time, in North Memphis, Tennessee, Juicy J, at age 13, was learning how to DJ as well as rap, he had wanted to be a singer, but in the late 1980s and early 1990s he fell in love with the gangsta rap style, he, like his future founding group members across town, wanted to make music like popular artists at the time such as N. W. A. and Geto Boys. In 1989, DJ Paul and Lord Infamous formed the duo "Da Serial Killaz", it was at this time that they started distributing their own mixtapes of popular songs at the time at school, Infamous had started rapping with his signature triple time flow. Juicy J was creating his own mixes by this time, but was not putting his raps on tapes just yet. By 1991, DJ Paul, had begun to make a name for himself in the local hip hop scene through DJing at local clubs, such as Club 380 Beale, where he got his first opportunity to perform.
His mixtapes, which were evolving to include more and more original content of "Da Serial Killaz" helped spread word of his talents. At the time, the hip hop scene in Memphis had not taken a fledged form yet, but early works by artists such as DJ Spanish Fly and DJ Squeeky were hinting at what was to come. DJ Spanish Fly heard of Paul's production skills, recruited him to help make a beat. Paul's work with Spanish Fly allowed him, still just 14 years old, to get his name out beyond the reach of his South Memphis neighborhood, squarely into a more established circle of the Memphis hip-hop scene. Meanwhile, Lord Infamous was still evolving his lyrical style. Up in North Memphis, Juicy J was building a name for himself as well, now that he was making his own songs and distributing them with his mixtapes, as well as DJing at local clubs with his mentor; that same year, DJ Paul and Juicy J first crossed paths after Juicy sought out Paul in 1991 for help making beats. The two grew fond of each-other's musical styles and the two subsequently teamed up with Lord Infamous to form the group "The Backyard Posse".
DJ Paul and Lord Infamous still continued work as "Da Serial Killaz" by themselves, in 1992 released the first legitimate original recording to come out of the eventual Three 6 Mafia camp, "Portrait of a Serial Killa". Featuring dark beats by Paul and horrorcore-styled lyrics from Lord Infamous and DJ Paul, this tape is recognized in its raw form as a pioneering work of horrorcore hip hop. Juicy J in the meantime released his debut hard copy mixtape, Volume 5, that same year, as well as his seminal track in its original form, "Slob on My Knob"; the first notable release from members of the group that dropped in 1993 was DJ Paul & Lord Infamous's Come With Me to Hell, which featured original forms of future Three 6 Mafia hits such as "Tear da Club Up" and "Porno Movie". Paul's “DJ Paul Volume 12" mixtape was released at this time; that same year, while recording music for “The Backyard Posse”, Lord Infamous famously rapped a line referring to his crew as the “Triple Six Mafia”. The group adopted the name, seeing that the name more matched the bleak and dark imagery of their music.
Juicy J had yet to release a notable work of his own at this point, but in 1994 that would change with Vol. 9: It’s On and Vol. 10: Chronicles of the Juice Manne. Similar to Paul and Infamous's works the previous year, these tapes featured what would turn out to be some of the framework of future hit songs. In 1994, the group added its fourth official member, rapper Koopsta Knicca. Following the addition, the group released their first unified release with the mixtape Smoked Out Loced Out, which featured fellow budding local rappers Gangsta Blac, Kingpin Skinny Pimp, Lil Fly, 211, K-9, Lil Glock & S. O. G; that same year, Koopsta Knicca recorded the original version of what would become his first solo album, Da Devil's Playground. 1994 marked a significant milestone for the group, when Paul and Juicy, alongside local entrepreneur Nick Scarfo, formed Prophet, their first imprint. Through the label, the "Prophet Posse” was created, a looser collective that consisted of several local Memphis rappers who associated with Paul and Juicy J and signed onto the label, but were not members of Triple 6 Mafia.
It was at this time when Project Pat, emerged with his debut, Solo Tape. In 1995 the group filled out when it added rappers Crunchy Black and Gangsta Boo, it was later

Kimmel began his television career as the comedic counterpart to Ben Stein on the game show Win Ben Stein's Money, which began airing on Comedy Central in 1997, his quick wit and "everyman" personality were counterpoints to Stein's monotonous vocal style and faux-patrician demeanor. The combination earned the pair an Emmy award for Best Game Show Host. In 1999, during his time with Win Ben Stein's Money, Kimmel co-hosted and co-produced, Comedy Central's The Man Show.
Kimmel left Win Ben Stein's Money in 2001 and was replaced by comedian Nancy Pimental, replaced by Kimmel's cousin Sal Iacono. The Man Show's success allowed Kimmel and Kellison to create and produce, under the banner Jackhole Productions, Crank Yankers for Comedy Central and The Andy Milonakis Show for MTV2. Kimmel produced and co-wrote the feature film Windy City Heat, Festival Prize winner of the Comedia Award for Best Film at the 2004 Montreal Comedy Festival.

He suggested that if the Detroit Pistons defeated the Los Angeles Lakers, "they're gonna burn the city of Detroit down... and it's not worth it." Officials with Detroit's ABC affiliate, WXYZ-TV announced that that night's show would not air on the station. Hours ABC officials pulled that night's show from the entire network. Kimmel apologized. Kimmel ends his show with "My apologies to Matt Damon, we ran out of time." When Matt Damon did appear on the show to be interviewed, he walked in and sat down only to be told just a few seconds by Kimmel, "Unfortunately, we are out of time," followed by "my apologies to Matt Damon." Damon appeared angry but both performers have since indicated that their faux-feud is a joke. In February 2008, Kimmel showed a mock music video with a panoply of stars called "I'm Fucking Ben Affleck", as "revenge" after his then-girlfriend Sarah Silverman and Damon recorded a similar video titled, "I'm Fucking Matt Damon".
