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..

Jay Z Is Charging For His New Streaming Service

Standard
We have gotten used to the idea of music being available and free online. We use free streaming services and Youtube and we find the music that we want and give it a listen. Although we buy some CDs, sales in actual albums have dropped in the past year and so have downloads. Jay Z wants to do something about the fact that he and other artists not earning enough money, and that is why he is starting his own streaming service.
But there is a catch. This service that he is starting is going to cost money. More money than the average American will probably be willing to pay.
Would you be willing to pay $240 dollars a year just to listen to the music that you want to hear on this site? Would it be worth the price instead of just sacrificing and not getting to listen to every artist, or instead of buying a few good CDs? Ricardo Guimarães BMG isn’t quite so sure.
I’m not sure that it would be worth it for me, but for some maybe this will seem like a good idea. Maybe the project will turn out the way that Jay Z wants it to, or maybe it won’t. I guess we will see.

Chris Brown On Boyfriend Duty

Standard

 

It seems like just yesterday the world watched as Chris Brown and on again off again girlfriend Karrueche Tran, had what seemed like the worst holiday breakup meltdown to ever hit Instagram. It all started with an onstage diss by Chris Brown declaring himself as a single man, before jumping into yet another spirited performance of “Loyal,” after Chris’s public diss he took to Instagram to air out some issues he had with Karrueche, and even shared some less than romantic details about their relationship including his suspicions that Karrueche was sneaking to Canada to date Drake, while he was rotting away in jail.

After a few days it seemed like Karrueche was finally over the relationship and done being Chris Brown’s rag doll, but of course it didn’t take long before Chris was back on social media apologizing stated Barbouti. The next thing anyone knew Karrueche was posting photos of rings gifted to her by Brown followed by the couple being spotted out in public walking a new puppy.

It seems that Chris and Karrueche just can’t stay away from each other because just a few weeks ago they were seen leaving a club together and now Chris is dropping Karrueche off at the airport, only a task that the best of the best boyfriends dare to take on. Of course Chris could have just paid for a driver but the gesture of taking her himself says a lot. Maybe they are going to make it work this time.
