Mariah Carey's New Album Smashed!

The reviews for Mariah's new album, "Memoirs Of An Imperfect Angel" have been mixed to say the least. I, for one really enjoy the album but I'm just one person. Anyway an angry fan or one just desperate for attention smashes her new album using his car. This is way to show his disgust with the album which is slated to debut either at #1 or #2 next week with 170-180K units. That is considerably low for Mariah and I don't think anyone was expecting an estimate that low.

Yung Berg Gets Slapped In Public Fight!

Yung Berg is always in the middle of something most likely cause he never shuts his big mouth. The video will point out who Yung Berg is and you will have to follow him in the video to see him get punched. The video is a bit shaky though.

Lil' Kim's Ghostwriter Reveals All!

Ghostwriters and female rappers go hand in hand. Since the early days of rap, men have mostly penned many of the songs by female rappers. There are some exceptions though but that's why you hear(or have heard) many female rappers state that they write their own rhymes. Here, Lil' Kim's former rap associate, friend, and lover comes clean on some things. Check it out!

VH1's Hip Hop Honor awards don't air until next month but the show itself has already caused quite a splash online. Here, you can check out some footage of some the behind the scenes video.



Music Biz:
Beyonce Boots Lindsay Lohan!
Beyonce Knowles reportedly had Lindsay Lohan thrown out of her own dressing room because the singer wanted it for herself.

The former Destiny's Child star was performing at the F1 Rocks concert in Singapore over the weekend and had ordered her entourage to get her the largest dressing area backstage.

However, Lindsay - who was hosting the event for British TV network Channel 4 - had already claimed the room for herself as she arrived earliest and was left upset when she was told she would have to vacate it.

The 'Mean Girls' actress told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "I've been a bit down. It was a strange night. Everyone was being aggressive and bothering me. I really didn't like it."Beyonce has more lawsuits than any o…

Throwback Video: Mariah Carey & Whitney Houston - When You Believe

The two divas that were once pitted against one another and still are to this day finally hooked up for a song. Produced by Babyface and featured on "The Prince Of Egypt" soundtrack, the song was a modest hit. Of course in my opinion what do you have to superstar artists sing about anyway?

Well check out this video as I continue my tribute to Mariah Carey. By the way Mariah's new album, "Memoirs Of An Imperfect Angel" is in stores today. Pick it up if your interested! It is a really great album! I haven't stopped playing it!

50 Cent Clowns Fat Joe In New Video!

Just when you thought 50 Cent was done discussing Fat Joe(when is he ever?), 50 Cent is rushed to the hospital after hearing Fat Joe's new album, "J.O.S.E. 2". This is a pretty stupid and funny video. Check it out!

Ciara Plans New Album!
Ciara has been laying low as of late, but for good reason. The R&B singer is well into recording her fourth album and we’ve got the exclusive details.

Christopher “Tricky” Stewart and his songwriting partner The-Dream have been secretly spending the summer in the studio producing the entire follow-up to Ciara’s Fantasy Ride. Stewart broke the news to Rap-Up.com in an exclusive interview. “We’re doing the whole project,” he reveals. “We’re pretty good into it at this point. We’re about 14 songs deep right now.”

While there’s still the possibility of a release by the end of the year, it’s looking like 2010 will mark Super C’s return. “It’s a little up in the air, but there’s a chance that it might come this year. That was the goal, but at the same time, we …

Amerie Unveils New Album Cover Art!

For her Def Jam debut, Amerie continues to be the innovator she is with this bold expression of an album cover. Titled, "In Love & War", the album features the singles, "Heard 'Em All" and "Why R U". The album will be in stores November 3. I can't say I'm that excited about this album but I know Amerie will offer something different musically.

Throwback Video: Mariah Carey - Emotions Live

Mariah performs her fifth #1 hit, "Emotions" live in Tokyo. Check it out!

Mariah uses a lot of her whistle register in this song and she uses it quite a bit in her new album, "Memoirs Of An Imperfect Angel".

The Classic Never Dies

Image
If you haven't noticed already I'm tributing Mariah Carey and her illustrious almost 20 year career. So you will see plenty of posts dedicated to her or mentioning her.

Mariah Carey is always covering someones song but no one has ever taken on any of her songs; not professionally anyway. I wonder why is that? Does Mariah think no one is capable of singing her songs the way she sings them? Who knows?

Over the years Mariah has not only created her own hits, but has made past hits, hits all over again.

Against All Odds
original artist: Phil Collins
Appeared on her "Rainbow" album which I ultimately skipped over but it was Mariah's last hit album of the 90s.

Make It Last Forever
original artist: Keith Sweat featuring Jacki McGee
Mariah along with Joe and Nas took on the Keith Sweat classic and also this song was build around Mariah's last #1 hit of the 90s, "Thank God I Found You".

I Want To Know What Love Is
original artist: Foreigner

You Dropped A Bomb On Me

Image
It's never a good thing when artists get dropped from labels. Actually it is pretty embarrassing among other things. Most artists like to downplay their release from a label by saying they asked for a release. Sure thing! Well anyway the artists have been involved in highly publicized releases from their labels. Check them out!

LeToya
Word is that LeToya has just been dropped from Capitol Records and there is a petition to save her and her career. LeToya's new album, "Lady Love" was met with little fanfare so that's when the rumors started. At the time of this type up, I had just read an article about her being dropped. The article may not even be true but it wouldn't surprise me if it were.

Brandy
Brandy signed with Epic Records last year and released her debut, "Human" which was a bomb in itself. Not one to be outdone though, Brandy rebounded by working on a new album soon afterwards. Recently word let out that Brandy was no longer featured on the Epi…

Ester Dean Performs Live On Jimmy Kimmel!

Have you heard of Ester Dean? She has a huge buzz online and her first single, "Drop It Low" featuring Chris Brown is taking off at radio. Anyway when I stumbled upon this video the comments preceding it were less than flattering. It just goes to show..."don't believe the hype". Check it out!

Meeting In The Ladies Room

Image
You ever wonder how I come up with these posts? Well I was sitting here this morning actually and I thought about "ladies". I guess you know where my mind was. Anyway I thought of several songs that came to my head that included the word 'ladies' and the rest is history. Check it out!

Klymaxx - Meeting In The Ladies Room
This 80s funk girl group produced the song this title post was named after. "Meeting" revolved around the time the ladies would go into the bathroom in the club and freshen up and look good for the male specimen. Gotta love it!

Queen Latifah - Ladies First
This is one of Queen Latifah's signature hits which features Monie Love.

Destiny's Child - Hey Ladies
A forgotten track on Destiny's Child's "The Writing's On The Wall" album.

Ray J - Sexy Ladies
This track is featured on the soundtrack to Ray J's hit reality TV show, "For The Love of Ray J".

Eve......A Free Agent!
TheYBF.com caught up with E-V-E on last night’s VH1 Hip Hop Honors red carpet. And she revealed that she has permanently shut down her Fetish clothing line. We reported a while back that she was in the midst of revamping the line for a re-release possibly under a different name and under a different company. But she tells us everything has completely ended due to “legal reasons”. Hmm.

Eve also confirmed that she has indeed left her label Geffen Records. Which means her album Flirt won’t be seeing the light of day anytime soon. It was supposed to be released two year…

K. Michelle Performs Live!

Singing "Today Just Ain't My Day". I have profiled K. Michelle before. If your not familiar with her, she is signed to Jive Records. She has a song called "Self Made" that features Trina and Gucci Mane. Check the video out!

Me Against The Music Label

Things are never always peachy and keen between artists and record labels. Often times artist and label clash over everything from single choices, image, and more. Well these well publicized beef with record labels can't go unnoticed. Check them out!

Joss Stone
An upset Joss Stone lashed out against label, EMI when they withheld her album, "Colour Me Free". Now with a release date of October 20, it seems the label has come to its senses.

JoJo
JoJo took to the internet, like many stars to express her frustration with Blackground Records for holding up her new album. The singer was very passionate about her album and wanted it to see the light of the day. Hopefully for JoJo we get to hear that album but something tells me we will one way or another.

Mariah Carey
It had been quite a few awkward years spent at Columbia Records, Mariah's former label due to the fact that her ex-husband, Tommy Mottola ran the label. Once Mariah finally got her release, she jumped ship to Virgin[…

Melanie Fiona Releases New Video!

Melanie Fiona has gathered a little bit of a buzz online. I go to a lot of different message boards and I always see her name but I never paid much attention. I have seen Melanie on "The Wendy Williams Show" before and she sung her debut single, "Give It To Me Right". Now her new single, "It Kills Me" gets the video treatment! Not only is a good video, it is a good song and I actually like it.

Melanie's debut album, "The Bridge" will be in stores November 3. Make sure you check it out! I will be...now!

As you may have noticed it is "Mariah Mania" here this week which will see many of Mariah's videos featured here throughout the week just in time for the release of her new album, "Memoirs Of An Imperfect Angel" which will be in stores September 29.

The-Dream Plans New Album!
Now that he’s wed Christina Milian and expecting his second child, The-Dream is prioritizing. His new album Love King has been pushed to next year while he focuses on his family and penning hits for others.

Producer Christopher “Tricky” Stewart spoke to Rap-Up.com about the delay of his hitmaking partner’s third album, originally slated for a fourth quarter release. “That’s not in the cards ’cause we’re just too busy right now,” says Stewart. “I think he wanted to take a little bit of time off from doing the artist thing.”

In the meantime, Dream is working on two new videos that will quench fans’ thirst. “We are shooting two more videos for his Love vs. Money album this week, one to ‘Sweat It Out’ and the other one to ‘Fancy.’”

As for Love King, the project is “almost” complete, according to Stewart. “…

Alicia Keys Readies New Album!

Hello all! A few weeks ago the lead single for Alicia Keys' first single leaked out and to be honest I can't remember what the name of it is. I think it is called "Doesn't Mean Anything" or something to that effect. Anyway below you can learn a little more about her upcoming album. Diddy shakes things up again by leaving his longtime label and Bobby Brown is back on reality TV. Read below for more information on these headlines! Happy reading!

Alicia Keys' new album will be titled, "The Element Of Freedom" and will arrive in stores December 1. The album's second single will be, "Try Sleeping With A Broken Heart".

Ashanti Performs Live On The Early Show!

Ashanti is outdoing herself with everything affiliated with "The Wiz" as she sings "Somewhere Over The Rainbow". Ashanti has the kind of voice for these type of songs but I wasn't too thrilled by her version of this. I am an Ashanti fan but this just didn't do it for me.

Meanwhile Ashanti hooked up with Ja Rule for the VH1 Hip Hop Honor awards which will be airing next month. This year's show pays homage to Def Jam and many of its artists; past and present. Ashanti, along with Ja Rule performed a medley of their biggest hits.

Throwback Video: Nelly Furtado - Showtime

This is perhaps my favorite song from Nelly Furtado and I was just on YouTube looking to listen to it and I found this concert footage of the song. Of course the live version of this slow is different and slowed down a bit. I do like the take of this song but the album version is still superior. Enjoy!

Keri Hilson Performs In Studio!

My attention span can be really short especially when it comes to things that don't interest me. I don't really have a big dislike towards Keri Hilson but I feel she can be a bit too cocky in her approach. Anyway Keri performs "Supernova" by singer Mr. Hudson[who was featured on Kanye West's "808s & Heartbreak" album] and "Energy". Check it out!

When they go out and they get dressed up and put their makeup on and get their hair done, they have the capacity to shut the club down.”

The video is set to be directed by Hype Williams who just shot Drake’s last video “Forever”.

Beyonce definitely will milk the hell out of a product, album, etc. and I don't blame her. I feel like if a lot of other artists did that, they'd be a lot more successful. Neither here nor there.

R. Kelly For The Woman's Soul

Image
For nearly 20 years, R. Kelly has wrote and produced many hits not only for himself but a host of female artists. At one time he was simply known for the songs he solely wrote and produced for females; many of them becoming anthems in their own rights. Check out some of those songs below!

Blaque - 808
I remember when I first heard this song and learning that R.Kelly wrote it, I wasn't surprised. I know R. Kelly has a particular style of writing but I do like how this song was written.

Truth Hurts - The Truth
R. Kelly produced this underrated gem from Truth Hurts' debut album, Truthfully Speaking in which he also shares guest vocals. I like the thumping beat here and the lyrics of course which signal R. Kelly as the King of ghetto soul.

Nivea - Laundromat
Being label mates with R. Kelly has its perks. He is likely to produce a cut for your album. That was the case for Nivea when he wrote and produced, "Laundromat". When the song was released as a single, it was during R. Ke…
