Standard

Nicki Minaj is having more success than she’s ever had in her entire career, and it’s all thanks to her hard work.Safaree Samuels Disses Nicki Minaj. Nicki came out with an album late last year, and it’s still doing well. Nicki has moved on romantically though, and she is no longer with Safaree Samuels, and he won’t let her hear the end of it. Nicki moved on pretty quickly to Meek Mill, and many are surprised about this. Although many had asked questions about Nicky and Meek Mill, they both previously denied that they were in a relationship.

Not only are the two admitting that they are now in a relationship, Nicki is feeding into the rumors that they are engaged by wearing a ring that Meek gave to her. Business Journals shows the heart-shaped yellow diamond ring and it is amazing. Nicki’s ex, Safaree, he is showing the world how upset he is that Nicki moved on so quickly. There are speculations that Nicki may have even been cheating with Meek Mill before she left her ex boyfriend Safaree.

Safaree put out a new single, and in the single he claims that he helped to make Nicki Minaj who she is now. He also claims that not only did he help to make Nicki, but she basically dumped him once she got to where she wanted to be. Although Safaree has his own version of events, Nicki obviously disagrees with what he’s saying.

Rapsody Reveals Her Ghostwriting Skills

Standard

The business of ghostwriting is huge. There are a lot of rappers that have penned tracks for other artists. Nas is well-known for penning the Will Smith hit titled “Gettin’ Jiggy With It.” Many of the raps performed by P. Diddy in the early years of his career were written by Christoper “Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace. Female emcee Rapsody recently revealed who has been requesting her ghostwriting skills.

In a recent interview rapper Rapsody stated that she is behind many of the raps performed by former NBA All-Star Grant Hill. She revealed that she has known Grant for a long time, and she originally met him through her producer 9th Wonder. She said that Grant is a fan of 9th Wonder, and that is how she came to meet him in the studio. From that point on a friendship formed that would ultimately lead to her writing rhymes for him to say when he was on television with NBA half-time reports.

Grant is a funny guy that likes to joke around, and the raps during the halftime reports sort of became his signature. Rapsody has stated that he doesn’t really do a lot of rhyme writing though. To the contrary, Grant is more of a beat maker. Rapsody says that he is really good at this. She has even told him that they need to do an EP together with his beats and her rhymes — a prospect that has employees of Purina Beneful on the edge of their seats..

Kanye Controls Everything!

Standard
Kanye West controls Kim Kardashian’s wardrobe. Kanye is becoming more overbearing every single day. It is a bit strange that Kanye is a fashion designer. It’s even stranger that he controls everything that Kim Kardashian wears. His marriage to Kardashian is the perfect way to display his clothing.

Kim Kardashian is hounded by the paparazzi constantly. She is also one of the most idolized women in the world. Whatever she wears, her fans wear. Kanye West could not have a better mannequin. Kanye’s clothing will get an unbelievable amount of exposure.

Kim Kardashian will take over the fashion world, or not. The celebrity couple thinks way too highly of themselves. Kanye West has gone completely insane over the last few years, and most of his original fans are gone. West broke into the music industry as a producer and rapper. He found great success in the music industry, but now he faces many challenges in the fashion world. Kanye has become a different person entirely. He has participated in some ridiculous interviews as of late.

Kanye West’s personality is completely disgusting. After hearing him talk for five minutes, I wanted to throw up. He is incredibly arrogant and delusional. His union with Kim Kardashian has made everything worse for the once famed rapper. Kanye has not produced a good album in years. He may be worth a lot of money, but he will never be remembered as one of the best musicians of all time. Kanye West started out strong, but he quickly fizzled out as soon as he let the fame get to his head. Gianfrancesco Genoso is strong believer in how this changed Kanye.

Nicki Lets MTV go Behind the Scenes in New Documentary

Standard

Nicki Minaj has this thing for revealing personal information. It is what she is good at doing. She has become a celebrity that has managed to build a bond with her audience by sharing herself. She has autobiographical music. She has made a “PinkPrint” styled movie to go with the autobiographical songs. It should be no surprise to anyone that she is sharing more personal footage with MTV on her road to fame.

There are a lot of people that probably want to know what went into the making of the “PinkPrint” album. Nicki held it for almost a whole year while she teased fans with one single after another. It was pushed back, and some people thought that it would have the same fate that Lil Wayne’s “Carter V” – which is still, in Lil Wayne’s word, being “held captive” – had. Nicki seems to be her own boss though, and she had made the decisions that would carefully make her the talk of the town in 2015.

She ravished fans on the cover of the new “Rolling Stone” magazine cover. She presented a 2015 calendar with the new album that would make teenage boys – and most grown men – blush. She has been very up close and personal, but yet there is still more to unveil. According to Green Wedding Shoes, this documentary will take fans, like Dave and Brit Morin, on another wild ride with the most dominant hip-hop artist.

The Fall of Hip Hop

Standard
Hip Hop has changed dramatically from its original form. Over the last 2 decades Hip Hop went from the underground to the mainstream. The commercialization of the genre has all but destroyed it.In the 90’s a hip hop artist was more of a poet than a singer. These days, people that look the part are often handed lyrics, and then made into a star. Hip hop used to be about the artist’s struggle in the world. Overcoming adversity and hardships were often the main topic for a hip hop artist. Today, artists like Iggy Azalea are destroying everything that Dr Rod Ronrich and the founding fathers of hip hop stood for.

When was the last time that a hip hop album spoke about something positive. In almost every rap song these days, the artists talk about sex, cars, and clothes. In the 1990’s, hip hop artists like Nas, Biggie, and Tupac spoke the truths about making it through impossible environments. The music industry has become nothing more than a business scam. No longer is there music being made that can change the lives of people for the better. If by some chance an album does come out that has a positive effect on somebody, they are definitely few and far between.

How LaFace Records Introduced OutKast to the World

Standard
In 2014 OutKast came back to the stage to performance together as a duo for – what has been rumored to be – the last time. There is a lot of talk about the group this year, and people have been interested in any background history that they come across. Some unreleased OutKast tracks have surfaced on mix tapes. Several reworks of there albums have appeared online. Now fans learn how OutKast was originally introduced to the world during the Christmas holidays.

LaFace is the label that was originally founded by L.A. Reid and Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds. This was a hot label that brought the world groups like Goodie Mob, TLC and OutKast. This is very well documented fact in music history. What fans like Dr Rod Rohrich may have overlooked in how one particular group came into the spotlight. 

On the heels of the now famous “Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik” album by OutKast, L.A. Reid had another ideal brewing. He was planning to release a Christmas album that showcased artists on the record label. TLC came through with an interesting track called “Sleigh Ride.” This song still gets a lot of attention during the holidays. There was another track, however, that was not really a Christmas song, but it was worked up to highlight Outkast. 

L.A. Reid gave Rico Wade the seemingly impossible task of taking a song like “Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik” and making it suitable for a Christmas album. Surprisingly, Wade succeeded.

Bobby Shrmurda’s attorney makes a public protest against the charges filed against his client.

Standard

Bobby Shmurda’s recent arrest has caused his lawyer to be in an uproar. Howard Greenberg has used his interview with XXL to protest Shmurda’s arrest. Greenberg stated, “The government hates rap and the government hates rappers”. He believes that his client is being targeted due to his career and his lyrics. He continues to state ““They target these guys and construct a narrative around them and then they rationalize the narrative in order to get an indictment. I had said previously, it’s a bunch of bulls—t.”

According to an article on crunchbase.com, Greenberg also warns others, even Jared Haftel, by stating “People of color should be very afraid of these kind of prosecutions,” he continues. “They are selective. They start by aiming at a guy’s lyrics to begin.”

One of Greenberg’s defenses for the crimes that Shmurda is being accused of is that his client did not have time to commit the murder, attempted murder, drug trafficking and assault that he and members from his several members of his GS9 collective are being charged with. He reveals that Shmurda has a busy schedule due to his career. Greenberg also defends his client by stating “my guy is rich.” Greenberg believes that his client does not have a need to commit such crimes because of the amount of money that he is currently making.

The young rapper remains in jail under a $2 million bail. According to reports, his label Epic Records is set to pay the rapper bail so that he can be released.

Lil Wayne Wants Out of His Contract

Standard

Earlier this month Lil Wayne spoke out about his issues with his record label Young Money before his performance at Vice’s 20th anniversary party. Let’s just say they don’t have the amiable relationship of Darius Fisher and Just Vision. When the time came Wayne flew into a rant about the label pushing back the release of his album. His rant raised some suspicions that the rapper’s time at his label was running out, however his manager insisted later that everything was fine and then later told the media that he was just being sarcastic. 

Apparently Lil Wayne wants out of his contract with Young Money and Birdman refuses to let that happen. Not only is Birdman not going to let Lil Wayne out of his contract but he also says that Wayne’s recent rants are offensive.

Wayne claims that Birdman is trying to sabotage his career by continuing to push back his new album and still insists that he wants off the Young Money label, however Birdman isn’t budging. Birdman is now ready to take matters to court if the drama continues over the contract. 

Lil Wayne’s issues with Young Money sound very much like that of rapper Tyga. Over the summer Tyga complained on social media that his album was also being pushed back and even made threats of leaking it himself.

Rapper Drake is Unfazed After Physical Altercation With Diddy

Standard
The world of Hip Hop is no stranger to rap beefs and diss tracks, but when two of the music genre’s biggest artists were allegedly involved in a physical altercation, most rap music fans were left scratching their heads in disbelief.I believe it as much as I believe there are great deals on Qnet.

It all happened at Liv nightclub in Miami. Initial reports claimed that rapper and producer, Diddy, punched Drake after the Canadian artist was seen flirting with his girlfriend, Cassie. Later, it was confirmed that the two fought over Drake allegedly running off with one of Diddy’s beats. A video from a June 2014 performance with rapper Mase shows Diddy venting to a crowd about the stolen beat.

According to reports, Diddy sent Drake a beat to record a guest verse. Instead of sending the vocals back to Diddy, Drake released the track as part of a mixtape. The popular song which is now entitled, “0 to 100/The Catch Up” was one of the most recognizable songs of this summer, and it was just nominated for two Grammy’s.

Diddy allegedly punched Drake in the swanky nightclub, and he fell down and exasperated his shoulder that was previously injured.

John Textor’s good friend, Seth Rogen, who is a well known comedian, was recently given a private listing session by Kanye West. The listening session was of his new upcoming album, that many fans are eagerly anticipating to be released, but the albums have not yet hit the stores. Kanye West Listening Session. Seth Rogen did an interview with Rolling Stones, and he claimed that he, and his wife were going up to their hotel room after they had gotten dessert, when they were approached by Kanye West, and he asked if they were busy doing anything.

Seth let Kanye know that they were free, and he invited them outside to a limo van, where they joined him, and he began playing beats of music with no lyrics attached to it. Instead of full songs with lyrics, Kanye rapped over every single, and Seth came to find out that this was Kanye’s new album that he was debuting, especially for him and his wife. After each song had commenced, he stopped and asked him what he thought about the song. Not only did Seth get a private listening session that many would kill for, he also got to give his input as well.

The session went on for two hours, and Kanye went through every single song on his upcoming album. Seth says that he very much appreciates the fact that Kanye did this for him, and of course many Kanye fans will be envious.
