Now playing: Ciara - Get In, Fit In

Ciara is currently on a press junket promoting new album, "Fantasy Ride" in stores May 5. The album recently leaked online in full and the response has been positively overwhelming. Looks like Cici has a hit on her hands.





Music Biz:

Music Feed: Musical Suits

I've been on an Ashanti kick lately. I say that because if you pay attention to the little signatures at the top and bottom depending on the post, you will see what I'm listening to and the last three posts have been Ashanti songs. I like Ashanti so what can I say. Anyway...

Onto tonight's music feed..I will say that Toni Braxton's latest lawsuit inspired this post(you can check that out a few posts down). I decided to examine artists who are usually the subject of a lawsuit. It doesn't matter what kind but most of the time its usually music related.

The following list of artists occasionally get caught up in a musical(law) suit from time to time. I don't go too in to detail of the lawsuits here but I touch basis on a few so check out the list below!

Toni Braxton - Ever since her bankruptcy and falling out with LaFace, Toni Braxton has virtually had some type of lawsuit she's encountered since she burst onto the scene in 1992. Toni's latest lawsuit involve…

Now playing: Ashanti - Things You Make Me Do (Feat. Robin Thicke) (Produced By Channel 7)
via FoxyTunes

At one point it seemed like Maxwell wouldn't return to music after several delays for his forthcoming album, "Black Summer's Night" in stores July 7. Now the singer has resurfaced with a new outlook on life and his career. Check out the video for his new single, "Pretty Wings".




Music Biz:
Lil' Wayne Sued!
Rapper Lil Wayne is suing the producer of a song he performed that allegedly sampled another singer's work without permission. A lawsuit filed last year against Lil Wayne accuses him of copyright infringement, saying he failed to secure permission to sample folk singer Karma-Ann Swanepoel's song "Once" on his track "I Feel Like Dying." A lawsuit filed last week by the rapper's lawyers says Rebel Rock Productions Inc., of Coconut Creek, Fla., produced "I Feel Like Dying" and was responsible for ob…

Soulja Boi - Interview (Video)

----------------
Now playing: Ashanti - Girlfriend (Produced By LT Hutton)
via FoxyTunes

Soulja Boi has two hit singles in the top 10 of the R&B/Hip-Hop charts with "Kiss Me Thru The Phone" featuring Sammie and "Turn My Swag On". Once dubbed an one hit wonder, Soulja Boi has overcome all that talk(for now). With a bit of resurgence and interest in himself and career, Soulja Boi takes time to brag and does some rumor control.


Jazmine Sullivan - Dream Big[live] (Video)

Grammy Award nominee Jazmine Sullivan performs her latest single, "Dream Big". It is the fifth single(if I'm not mistaken) from her debut album, "Fearless". The album has resonated pretty highly with everyone. Sorry but I wasn't so into her album or Jazmine for that matter. I would of thought Jazmine's album would of been certified gold by now but I believe it is slowly on its way to approaching that status.

Lil' Kim & Family - Interview (Video)

Lil' Kim made it a family affair as she and her family were interviewed backstage during "Dancing With The Stars". Kim has been doing incredibly each week and continues to amaze viewers. Lil' Kim's new single, "Download" is climbing up the R&B/Hip-Hop charts. Expect a new album very soon. After all she better strike while the iron is hot. I think that's what Toni Braxton should of did instead of suing insurance companies and what not(read below).

Christina Aguilera's New Album Details!
Looks like it was time to pull out the hydrogen peroxide bottle! Christina Aguilera is back on the music scene prepping for her fourth album. Word is she is headed back in the studio next week, teaming up again with DJ Premier, who worked on her less-than-great third album "Back to Basics."She is apparently matching wits with some of music's biggest creative cats like my favorite soul-pop-diva Sia. Recently, Sia shared a little about t…

Pleasure P Unveils New Album Cover Art

Well...well Pleasure P finally releases the artwork for his debut solo album, "The Introduction of Marcus Cooper". If you were unaware Marcus Cooper is Pleasure P's government name. The oft-delayed album is set to be released on June 5. Personally I think the album should of already been released. I am looking forward to Pleasure's album(as I'm sure a lot of other people are too). A lot of the leaked songs including, "Chocolate Coated Candy" and "Patience" featuring Static Major are some of my favorites and I hope they do make the album.

I don't have much else information on the album at this point but as the release date draws closer I'm sure more information will be available.

Rasheeda - Boss Chick (Video)

The name Rasheeda may not resonate with many but she is not a new female rapper by any means. Rasheeda burst onto the scene in 2000 with her debut, "Dirty South". Rasheeda is best described as a mixture of other southern female rappers such as Khia and Trina. What's the difference? Well she possesses the materialism often heard in Trina's lyrics. She combines a lot of the ghetto sleaze you hear in Khia's rhymes(that's of course if you listen to her).


I'm not sure where this song(video) is from but obviously Rasheeda has a new album in the works.

Teairra Mari - Cause A Scene(Sneak Peek) (Video)

Teairra Mari is ready to unleash her new video for "Cause A Scene" featuring Flo Rida but before she does she teases fans, viewers, and more with this teaser! Check it out!



I've said it once and I will say it again. I like how Teairra and her camp are slowly working to get her name back out there. Teairra had a huge buzz when she was with Def Jam but I think people got turned off at how fast she was for her age at the time(17?).

Fabolous Talks Jay-Z Collabo!
“Actually, a version leaked and it was with Jay-Z only rapping on it and it’s called, ‘When The Money Goes,’ Fabolous said. “Jay-Z had recorded something to it, I guess what you hear on the leak, for American Gangster and I don’t think it made the final cut so he had reached out to me, knowing that I was working on this project and knowing the theme of what I was trying to put together and said, ‘Yo, I got a record that might fit in to play.’ So, when he brought the record to the table it did. I re-vocale…

Drake is one of internet's hottest sensations right now. A bevy of hit mixtapes has set this star on fire. Signed to Lli' Wayne's Young Money click, Drake takes time to talk exclusively to Joe Budden TV. Check it out!



The picture is a little dark but if you can stand that then your good. I'm not too big on Drake. I just don't like to get into anyone or anything that is hyped up. I like to decide if I like someone or something for myself not because everyone else likes it!

Music Feed: Top 10 Most Influential Artists

I asked around some of the message boards I frequently visit to name the 'most influential artists'. I didn't have a particular criteria for who people should pick. On second thought I wish I had of as people were just naming all types of artists but that's what made it fun and interesting. Putting together these results were not that surprising to me. Everybody who is somebody was mentioned but only the top 10 matter here. Without further a due I present to you the list of the 'Top 10 Most Influential Artists" according to various internet users.

10. Madonna
This is not a surprise to me nor should it be to anyone for that matter. Over the span of three decades, Madonna has transcended the face of pop music. A musical chameleon is still punching today with shocking behavior and sold out tours.

09. Beyonce
She is the 'it' girl in the industry and continues to inspire and be duplicated by many a R&B chicks. Her style and music set the standard in what&#…

B. Scott Disses Bow Wow (Video)

Bow Wow receives a tongue lashing courtesy of famous blogger B. Scott. Bow Wow recently came under fire for making comments regarding an experience in a barber shop with a gay barber. Apparently Bow Wow felt threatened and refused the barber's services. B. Scott is not a happy camper and you can check out his rant in this video!




Bow Wow is so stuck up to me and has always been. Now he's viewed as a homophobic but he has always irked me.

Pleasure P is on the brink of releasing his solo debut, "The Introduction of Marcus Cooper" on June 5.

While we ponder those questions you can check out Pleasure P in this exclusive performance which features a medley of Pretty Ricky's hits.

Teairra Mari has been making quite a splash online as she has been prepping her new album, 'At That Point'. Check out this exclusive behind the scenes footage of Teairra as she shoots the video for her new song, "Cause A Scene" featuring Flo Rida.



I applaud Teairra and her team for working hard to reestablish her fanbase and get people interested for her new album.

Lil' Kim - Download - Behind The Scenes (Video)

Last week Lil' Kim's "Download" was the most added song at radio signaling that this song is headed to hit single status. While there has been dozens of behind the scenes footage of the "Download" video, this one is a little more in depth. The origin of the song is explained as well as some other things you might find interesting.

For Hip Hop News & Entertainment at DimeWars.Com
"Download" is one of my favorite songs right now and it makes me curious to hear what Kim comes up with this time. There is no release date for Kim's upcoming album but I figure it will be soon. I remember reading that "Download" wasn't Kim's first single for her new album but for a DJ Envy compilation. In last week's issue of Billboard magazine, the magazine reported that "Download" was indeed the first single to her new album. I'm betting on Billboard instead of some fan who claims to have some inside information.

Eminem Unveils New Album Cover

Eminem's long awaited album, "Relapse" will be in stores May 19. The album is led by the single, "Crack A Bottle". The album cover(above) is similiar to T.I.'s recently released, "Paper Trail" album.

Princess of Crime Mob will release her debut solo single, "Dirty Pop". Check out the single cover(above). It is the lead single from her upcoming Warner Bros. debut.

Fabolous Speaks On Joe Budden's Girlfriend (Video)

Fabolous speaks on his past relationship with Joe Budden's girlfriend Tahiry. The magazine vixen recently appeared on the cover of King magazine and appears frequently in Joe Budden's video blogs.

For Hip Hop News & Entertainment at DimeWars.Com
Looking at the video I realize how mature Fabolous is compared to a lot of other rappers. He always handles situations with dignity and I never see him going off the deep end acting all wild and disrespectful. Then again Fabo has always been a laid-back type of guy anyway so that explains a lot. For some odd reason I can't help but feel like I've seen this video before. It is like I'm having a strange case of deja vu. Did Fabolous have someone elses' girlfriend too?

Poll Results! Ludacris Comes Out On Top

A little over a week ago I asked readers, supporters, and visitors to vote for their 'favorite chrisand with 32% of the votes, Ludacris chimed in at #1 as your 'favorite chris'. This summer Ludacris teams with Shawnna for the "Battle Of The Sexes" album.

Coming in at #2 was Chris Brown with 25% of the votes which was a bit of a shock to me for obvious reasons. Nothing against him though. You can hear Chris Brown on "Turntables" a duet with Ciara for her "Fantasy Ride" album in stores May 5.

#3 was a tie vote between Christina Milian and Christina Aguilera. The sirens both have album slated for this year. Milian's upcoming, "Elope" is due this summer. Meanwhile Aguilera's album should surface sometime this fall or winter.

Thank you all for voting in the poll and soon as I think of a new one I will post that one up.

currently riding high with his hit single, "Blame It" featuring T-Pain. He is also the center of a huge scandal after comments me made about Miley Cyrus blew up.

Jamie's rant about Miley led to this 'music feed' regarding Jamie's share of famous feuds he has over the years. It seems like Jamie's background as a comedian and host often gets him in trouble. Comedians have a history of saying things that offend people and Jamie is certainly on exception. You are hereby authorized to check out the list of Jamie and his famous feuds over the years.

A rep for the band later shot back, Now, a month after the incident, Jamie Foxx is commenting on what the 16-year-old said about the band. On his Sirius radio show, "The Foxxhole," on Sunday night, after a listener called in to talk about the incident, Foxx went on a curse-filled tirade after semi-sarcastically posing the question "Who is Miley Cyrus?" Perez Hilton reports. He then went on to describe her as the girl "with all the gums" and wondered if she was the one with the gum transplant.It always seems like Jamie Foxx is always in the middle of some type of scandal or something with another celeb.

Cassie, The-Dream 'Keep Lovin' On New Track!

Music Biz:
Rapper BOW WOW has potentially sparked a new hip-hop feud after reprimanding artists, like LIL WAYNE and KANYE WEST, who use computer programming to enhance their voices on records.Bow Wow reveals he is not a fan of the Auto-Tune software, which enables rappers to polish their poor vocals by computer - and he insists he’ll never use it. He tells Giant magazine, “It makes everyone feel that if they do it then they got a hit record. “It’s (Auto-Tune) like a slut that’s being passed around, and everyone’s jumping on it.”Bow Wow is probably just creating this beef I think to boost his album sales since his new album, "New Jack City 2" stalled on the Billboard charts.

Music Feed: Six Degrees Of Jadakiss

I won't stop with the 'six degrees of' posts huh? Nope I won't. We all know Jadakiss. He is the Yonkers, New York born rapper known for his distinctive rap flow and voice. He is one third of the rap trio The Lox. He was formerly signed to Bad Boy and had a bitter falling out with the label and Diddy(just like every other artist). He has graced numerous albums, mix tapes, and singles over the years.

Now signed to Def Jam/Rocafella Records, Jadakiss recently unleashed his new album, "The Last Kiss" and it is led by the singles, "By Your Side" featuring Ne-Yo and "Can't Stop Me" which is one of my favorite songs right now.

I don't get into many rappers but Jadakiss is one rapper I really like. I like his flow and his style and the things he says among other things.

Marques Houston is the latest subject of my infamous 'six degrees of...' post. We all know Marques from the group Immature later known as IMX. He has starred in numerous TV shows including "Sister, Sister" and has starred in several movies including, "You Got Served". He has continued his recording career with a string of critically acclaimed albums. On his upcoming album, "Mr. Houston" set to arrive in stores June 23, Marques teams up with Jim Jones on the album's first single, "I Love Her".

Cassie, Diddy Find 'Love' On New Single

After "Official Girl" featuring Lil' Wayne failed at radio, Cassie and co. opted to release the new track, "Must Be Love" featuring Puff Daddy. Puff Daddy? This man changes his name more times than Jennifer Lopez changes last names. Anyway Puff's rumored lover Cassie's new single, "Must Be Love" was also recorded by Day 26. The song has been described as vintage Bad Boy and it is if you've heard the clip. I was feeling the song at first but later on I realized I didn't care as much for it as I originally thought.

For some reason when I look at Cassie she makes me think of Apollonia or Vanity. Couldn't you imagine Cassie singing those kinky songs like "Pretty Mess" and so forth. I mean after all "Me & U" is supposedly about oral sex right? Member the original clip of the video. It was like watching softcore porn.
