Lil' Kim previews new song and video and Ashanti "says less" on new single

A few days ago a video surfaced of rapper Lil'Kim's new video and single. The untitled single was viewed at an unknown media event in which Kim attended. Later, more footage was released with Lil' Kim speaking indicating that the new single and video serves as a precursor to her new project slated to be released at the top of next year. Let's just hope that Kim sticks to her guns in releasing this video, single, and new album. We all know her history of failing to release albums, singles, EP's, and mixtapes. I can't fault Kim entirely as I know she hasn't been surrounded by people that had her best interests at heart in my opinion. I also can't just call out Kim because when it comes to female rappers in general, they are all pretty well known for pushing back projects, getting albums shelved, etc. Are you all ready for Lil' Kim to come back?
Ashanti has been pretty quiet on the music front lately but you can always believe that she is cooking up s…

Nelly arrested for second degree rape, reality TV stars to face off on camera

I was shocked when I logged on to Twitter yesterday while at work and saw the headlines that Nelly had been arrested for rape. Now I don't know the full details of the story but the alleged rape took place on a tour bus in a Walmart parking lot. Nelly is currently on tour with pop country group, Florida Georgia Line(I think that's their name). Nelly has spoken out denying the allegations and thanked his fans for their unwavering support. I was on Twitter again last night and I saw a video of Nelly bringing a little girl on stage and talking to her before telling her to hold his glasses. He then proceeded to stroke her hair and sing to her. The concert goers seemed to think the gesture was cute but others online was questioning Nelly's behavior. It was making this alleged rape charge not too far fetched. Many were wondering what kids were doing at a Nelly concert but Nelly is touring with a pop country group so the audience likely varied in age. An online commentator noted…

Tyrese blasts The Rock over holding up new "Fast & Furious" movie

Singer turned actor Tyrese is fuming at his "Fast & Furious" co-star, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson for holding up filming for the newest installment of "FF" in favor of a standalone movie. The newest "FF" movie was slated to be released in 2019 and will now be released sometime in 2020. Okay! Big deal! The movie is still happening and as far as we know Tyrese is still attached to star in the movie. Now if Tyrese were unceremoniously dropped from the movie then I could understand the frustration. He better hope his "drag session" if we want to call it that doesn't result in him not having a job. I would think someone like The Rock has a lot of pull and may want producers to not have Tyrese involved in the film. Or they could simply decide themselves to cut Tyrese or then again they could keep him as there is no such thing as bad publicity. This spar created by Tyrese will definitely ignite some interest in the upcoming installment…

Azealia Banks calls out Cardi B. over her #1 hit, "Bodak Yellow"

Jay Z claims he turned down an offer to perform at the Super Bowl next year and the NFL responded by offering a slot to Justin Timberlake. The question is will he invite Janet Jackson to perform? Remember the two famously performed(and stripped)in 2004 and it led to huge backlash and numerous fines for network CBS. I'm sure the censors will be in full effect as Justin performs. I would expect a PG rated show though from the former Disney star. 
Female rapper, Khia(song: "My Neck My Back") has called out singer, K. Michelle over her Lupus disease diagnosis. To sum it up, Khia basically feels that K. Michelle's revelation is straight up bullshit. Who knows? K. Michelle has yet to respond. But she was however quick to respond to Joseline and Azealia Banks in the past. K. Michelle is known for getting the girls together but she met her match in Azealia Banks(the two fell out when plans to tour together fell through) and I think she'd certainly would meet her match i…

Cardi B. hits #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 with "Bodak Yellow"

Cardi B. is having the best week ever as her single, "Bodak Yellow" has FINALLY hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. "Bodak Yellow" is the first solo single from a female rapper to top the chart since 1998 when Lauryn Hill released "Doo Wop(That Thing)". Cardi has received congratulations from everyone from Missy Elliott to singer Taylor Swift(who sent the rapper flowers for her achievements). I would definitely say "Bodak Yellow" is the song of the Summer. Congrats to Cardi B. Now that Cardi has hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, people will be waiting to hear what Cardi has in store for us next musically. She was slated to drop an album in October but its since been pushed back to an unspecified date. I really think Atlantic needs to strike while the iron is hot! Either way I think whenever she releases her debut album it will be a success. I just don't think they should wait forever to release it.

Actress and friend of Brandy's says the singer is not pregnant

Hey guys! Sorry for the lack of updates! I'm always keeping up with what's going on in popular culture but me coming here and discussing it(typing it) is a whole different story. I compiled the last week of news stories and speak briefly on some of those you have heard about and some you may of not heard about. So here goes...
Remember the rumors going around suggesting that singer Brandy was pregnant with her rumored ex-boyfriend(who's alleged to be married) lovechild? Well her friend, actress; Jenifer Lewis(show: "black-ish") was asked during a red carpet event if Brandy was pregnant and she replied "No!". So there you have it! Brandy is not pregnant! R&B group Xscape are heading out on tour this Fall with singer Monica and Tamar Braxton. The group also landed a reality show titled, "Still Kickin' It"(I believe) and it will air on the Bravo network directly after "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" starting on November 5. T-Bo…

Lil' Kim spotted in the studio with Remy Ma

Fans of Lil' Kim and Remy Ma are rejoicing after pictures surfaced of the two female rappers in the studio. Lil' Kim shared the pictures via her Instagram page as did Remy Ma. Both women are working on new albums but whose album will this collaboration appear on remains to be seen.
Janet Jackson has been back in the news thanks in part to her "State of the World" tour but she is also in the news regarding her impending divorce. Janet's brother, Randy has spoken out to People magazine saying Janet was verbally abused during her marriage. Janet's husband allegedly referred to Janet as a "bitch" during her pregnancy. I don't think its uncommon for a woman to be a "bitch" during her pregnancy but there were also rumors that Janet's ex-husband was "controlling". I wouldn't be surprised if that were true. He looks like the type. Remember a few months ago when everyone thought Brandy was pregnant and she quickly denied it? W…
