40 Glocc challenges The Game to paid fight

Image
Do you all remember this video? I'm not even sure how long ago it was but 40 Glocc, seen in the red is being beat up by his nemesis The Game and now 40 wants a rematch. This time he wants it to be a paid event with the winner winning $100,000 dollars. 40 posted a scathing Instagram post insulting The Game and challenging him to this fight. At press time I'm not sure if Game has responded or not but in the meantime you can check out their previous fight which is quite funny.

Danity Kane members form new group and Jay Z starts new music service and Young Dro arrested

BLONDE AMBITION: The girls that were formerly Danity Kane refuse to go away. Dawn Richard is currently pursuing her solo career and now ex-members Aubrey O'Day and Shannon Bex have formed a duo known as dumblonde. The two debuted their new look at the iHeart radio awards show last night and Aubrey made the announcement in regards to the new duo. So what do you think about Aubrey and Shannon teaming up? Yay or nay? I, myself I guess I don't have much of an opinion but good luck girls. TIDAL WAVE: And Jay Z got together some of his good friend including his wife, Kanye West, Madonna, Alicia Keys, etc.(basically people who have been linked to the Illuminati) together for a new streaming music service called Tidal. I'm not really sure the specifics of it but I hear it will change the face of music. What do you think? I guess we will have to wait and see. Oh if that weren't enough star power for you, Nicki Minaj was there as was Rihanna, J. Cole, and Usher. All of Jay Z…

Destiny's Child reunites and Diddy & French Montana caught in compromising position

MUSIC BITS: BET held its annual "Black Girls Rock" show and it brought out such stars as Ciara, Tracee Ellis Ross("black-ish"), Faith Evans, Fantasia, Lalah Hatahway, Janelle Monae, and many more. The telecast will air in April on BET. The show recognizes black women in all industries who are are positive role models etc.  Destiny's Child reunited this weekend for the Stellar Awards. They performed "Say Yes" from Michelle Williams' album "Journey To Freedom". Do you guys want to see Destiny's Child get back together and do a new album or nah?  R. Kelly is being sued by a concert promoter for stiffing the promoter out of $10,000 dollars. I don't know much else in regards to this story and I really don't care. Do you? Diddy and French Montana were seen on Instagram caught in a compromising position with Diddy shirtless with his butt on French Montana. The pair were laying atop of a roof alongside other friends including Cassie…

Music Video: GypjaQ featuring Azealia Banks - Blown Away

Azealia Banks teams up with GypjaQ for the video to their single "Blown Away". The song was leaked out last year and is finally getting the video treatment and I'm happy because it was definitely one of my favorite songs from last year. Enjoy!

Rihanna reveals new single title and Tamar Braxton in tears and Kendrick Lamar is #1

RUDE BITCH: Rihanna will be debuting her new single tomorrow "Bitch Better Have My Money" #BBHMM from her upcoming album rumored to be titled #R8 by her RihannaNavy fans. For this new album Rihanna said she wanted songs that were timeless and that she could perform years from now but I'm thinking with that title, you plan on performing this 20 years from now? We'll see. But get excited! Are you? CRY BABY: Well Tamar Braxton got on her show "The Real" and cried a river of tears after being called a Muppet by nemesis K. Michelle. The war of words between Tamar and K. have been going on for quite awhile and I don't know why Tamar chose to cry on her show about it but possibly to say she was really offended by it but also to make K. look like the bully she portrays to be a lot. But with that being said I'm sure Tamar has said some hurtful things to K. as well. But you don't see K. crying but I think their beef is very petty and they need to squash …

Ray J quits "Love & Hip Hop Hollywood" and Brandy signs on for Broadway

LOVE HURTS: Ray J has had enough of the drama that is "Love & Hip Hop Hollywood" and has quit the show. Apparently the producers are scrambling to get him back as he is a central part of the cast. Ray says his relationship with the crazy  Princess Love has suffered since appearing on reality TV but I mean what did you expect? Most relationships and friendships fall apart on reality TV. So what do you all think about Ray J leaving? Do you think it was the right decision or do you think he will be back once up his pay? SISTER SISTER: Speaking of Ray J, his sister Brandy is taking a break from music and going on Broadway to play Roxie Hart in "Chicago". The singer announced the news via her Instagram. Brandy's role starts on April 28.

Jamie Foxx says he's not banging Katie Holmes

So Jamie Foxx says he's not dating Katie Holmes and that they are working on a project together. What project that is anyone's guess but my guess is their "project" is their budding romance. These rumors have run rampant for awhile and they died down then they were reignited when the two were pictured together in a studio. Do you think Jamie is producing Katie Holme's album? Does she even sing? Who knows? It's funny because one of my co-workers brought up how Jamie Foxx is such a slut and yadda yadda and I told her, he said he's dating her. But I also said he's probably banging her though even though he also said that's not true. What do you think people? Talk to me!

Chris Brown off probation and Suge Knight passes out in court

MUSIC BITS: Good news for Chris Brown! He is officially off of probation and let's hope he stays out of trouble. Speaking of trouble Suge Knight found out his fate in court today when it was revealed that his bail was set at $25 million dollars. Upon finding out the news, Suge Knight passed out! Everyone is saying that it was simply an act and I have to agree. If you recall Suge Knight was seen on surveillance camera running a man over not once but twice after a scuffle was taking place in the streets. If you want to see the gruesome footage TMZ had it on their site awhile back. I'm sure if you search for it you can find it. And that's that! What do you think of Suge Knight's dramatic passing out and do you think Chris Brown will stay single and out of trouble for long? Sound off below and share these stories!

Lil' Wayne says Drake slept with girlfriend and Chris Brown is single and Raven-Symone Instagram shut down

SOMEBODY'S GIRL: So more news coming in today..Lil' Wayne is reportedly shopping around a tell all book during his stint in prison back in 2010. I almost forget that Wayne was in prison but allegedly its being said that Drake revealed to Wayne that he slept with his girlfriend. Wayne says he was crushed by the news and was glad he was in jail or otherwise there would of been hell to pay. Just goes to show men need to keep their women away from Drake. He gets them every time. Ha! THIRSTY GIRL: Speaking of stealing girls Chris Brown says he is single and plans to stay that way for awhile after he was rumored to be dating some bird that posted a picture of him with her on his tour bus with baby bottles in tow. Sounds like someone was just wanting a little attention and they got it. Now back to your regularly scheduled program! QUEEN'S STING: Raven-Symone says her Instagram page was taken down by the infamous #Beyhive after claiming Lil' Kim is the original Queen Bee, whi…

Bow Wow calls out "Empire" and 50 Cent calls Joe Budden a "bitch" and Beyonce's new shoe line

CYBER WEDNESDAY: After Wednesday night's season finale of "Empire" which drew 16.5 million viewers, the highest rated episode thus far, Bow Wow has spoke out against the show saying he would never be on "Empire" because it stereotypes blacks. Do you agree that the show stereotypes blacks and do you think he was hating on "Empire" a little? Of course he is entitled to his opinion but I wonder did he audition for Hakeem and ain't get the role. Bow Wow is currently starring in a new CBS show "CSI: CYBER". Right after "106 & Park" was cancelled Bow Wow scooped him up a gig real quick. Not mad at him about that but I'm giving his comments the side eye. "BITCH" MADE: Speaking of the side eye, Joe Budden made some comments about "Power" the show that stars Omari Hardwick(of "Being Mary Jane"). He was simply expressing his excitement about the show returning(in June) and referencing the tagline wh…

Drake great in bed and Jamie Foxx dating Katie Holmes and "Empire" soundtrack hits #1

LOVER BOY: Deelishis aka London Charles has been keeping her name in the news lately. During a recent interview with Kandi Burruss-Tucker of #RHOA and "Kandi Koated Nights" fame, she revealed that a rapper from Toronto who sings in his raps is "great in bed". I wonder what she had to say about Wiz Khalifa because we all know she was getting busy with him and let's not forget Flavor Flav and all the other countless celebrity men we don't even know about. FOXX HOLE: And we might know that Jamie Foxx and Katie Holmes may be dating. The two were recently spotted sitting together holding hands. If that's not a couple then I don't know what else is. The story about Jamie and Katie is not exactly new. The rumor regarding them being together or not has been in the rumor mill for a few months now. Do you think Jamie and Katie are dating and what do you all think about Deelishis and her thirsty self. I don't know but I've never been a big fan of hers…

Chris Brown sents message to ex and Raven Symone attacked and Young Thug names new album

THE X FILES: Chris Brown sent a message out to his former lover insisting that she not turn into a "THOT" after she broke up with him. Since then she has been on social media flashing her shit letting everyone know that she is single and ready to mingle and frankly I'm not mad at her. Chris is salty though! B REAL: But Raven Symone is not! She caught some flack from Beyonce's Beyhive(fans) after the actress referred to Lil' Kim as the Queen Bee, which she is though. Before Beyonce was referred to as Queen B or even started calling herself that, Lil' Kim bore the title and frankly I think she still wears it. No offense to Beyonce or her fans. I thought I'd put up that little disclaimer in case a ____ tried to come for me. THUGS R US: But anywho Young Thug is finding ways to grab peoples attention aside from him having everyone question his sexuality. The Cash Money rapper has boldly titled his new album "Carter 6". And Lil' Wayne's daugh…

Tinashe leaves Iggy Azalea's tour in favor of Nicki Minaj's tour

TOUR DE FORCE: So if you all weren't aware Iggy Azalea was supposed to embark on her The Great Escape Tour but for unforeseen reasons it was cancelled(and later rescheduled). One of the show's opening acts, Tinashe, known for her hit "2 On" dropped out of Iggy's tour to join rival Nick Minaj's "Pink Print" tour. Ironically Iggy is featured on the remix to Tinashe's new single "All Hands on Deck". I guess Tinashe had to go where the money is at. Do you blame her and do you think it was wrong for her to leave Iggy's tour only to join her rival's tour? And second of all I wonder what Iggy thinks of this? Anyway you all have a good night. I just saw this story and thought I'd share with you all. Until next time!

Snoop Dogg to guest on "Empire" and Benzino and Althea expecting baby and Kendrick Lamar new album leaks

DOGG POUND: So we are all awaiting the season finale of "Empire" this week on Fox and for the finale none other than Snoop Dogg will be guest starring. I can only imagine what role he will take on. There have been so many twist and turns this season so make sure you watch this Wednesday. BABY LOVE: Benzino and Althea of "Love & Hip Hop Atlanta" fame have announced that they are expecting their first child together. The couple was famously fired from LHHATL after allegedly threatening bodily harm to producer Mona Scott-Young. Congratulations to the couple! EARLY LEAK: Kendrick Lamar is upset at his record label Interscope for prematurely making his new album, "To Pimp a Butterfly" available on iTunes. The album wasn't supposed to be released until March 23 but only the clean version is available at presstime. Should Kendrick be upset or should he just let it slide since his album is now on sale and reviews have been generally good thus far. MOVING…

Jermaine Dupri accuses Ciara of jacking Usher's song

BAD BET: Jermain Dupri must be either broke or he just wants some attention. The famed producer is alleging that Ciara's new hit song "I Bet" sounds awfully familiar to Usher's 2001 hit "U Got It Bad" produced by Jermaine Durpi. He went as far as to compare the ordeal to what's developed between the Marvin Gaye family and Pharrell and Robin Thicke. Me personally I don't hear the similarities but I guess. What do you all think? To expound on my thoughts, its only when a song becomes successful that people allege this kind of things. If the song were released and went straight to hell, this wouldn't even be a topic of discussion. The nerve of some people.

Tyrese hints at possibly guest starring on second season of "Empire"

BABY BOY: Tyrese has gone on record to say that his beloved Yvette, Tariji P. Henson of "Empire" fame, with whom Tyrese co-starred with in "Baby Boy" has been sending for her character on Instagram, implying that he may be on next season of the popular FOX series. Boy! I just said a lot! Anyway a who's who of R&B and Hip Hop stars have already guested on the first season of the show. We can only imagine what the second season has in store for us. But it is being noted that Foxy Brown, Oprah, and Spike Lee are all said to guest star on next season of "Empire". And what do you guys feel about Tyrese guest starring and thinking Cookie Lyons is Yvette. Now that would be something now wouldn't it?

Kelly Rowland on Essence magazine and Azealia Banks on Playboy magazine

COVER GIRLS: So here's a little news for you all on this lovely Saturday night. Kelly Rowland and her family appear on the newest issue of Essence magazine. Azealia Banks is the cover girl from the April issue of Playboy. Rihanna is the new face of Dior, making her the first black woman to ink a deal with the legendary fashion brand. It's crazy because all of the black models we have and they've never been the face of Dior. Quite strange I might add but congrats to Rihanna! What do you all think about Rihanna being the face of Dior? To be honest I can see why she was picked though. Rihanna is young, vibrant, and she's pretty likeable and best of all she will tell you off in a heartbeat. BEAT AROUND THE "BUSH": On the album release front, Snoop Dogg will release his new album, "Bush" on May 12. The album features the first single "Peaches & Cream" featuring Charlie Wilson. When I first heard the snippet, the song produced by Pharrell i…

Flashback Friday: Brandy - Best Friend

Image
In 1995 Brandy released the single "Best Friend" off her 1994 quadruple platinum self-titled album. "Best Friend" is an ode to her partner in crime, her beloved and always controversial brother Ray J. Go back in time and check out this classic video by R&B's vocal bible.

Lil' Wayne throws mic at DJ and Kathy Griffin leaves "Fashion Police" and Kendrick Lamar retitles new album

GANGSTA LEAN: It's safe to say that Lil' Wayne is not having the best week. Earlier this week it was reported that someone shot at his Miami home and police were called. Fortunately the story was false and no one was injured as originally indicated. As if that wasn't enough, while performing this week Lil' Wayne got mad at the DJ when he played the wrong song. Perhaps Wayne had too much lean! What do you think? So what else is going on? FASHION FORWARD: Well after Kelly Osbourne's fiery exit from "Fashion Police", host Kathy Griffin has also left the show only after 7 episodes. The show originally spearheaded by the late great Joan Rivers is not doing so well it seems. Maybe it might be time to give the show the ax. What do you think? Do you think Guiliana Rancic's comments towards Zendaya Coleman hurt the show? BLACK BUTTERFLY: One person who is not hurting is Kendrick Lamar. He is readying his new album which is now titled To Pimp A Butterfly. The …

Foxy Brown throws shade at Remy Ma and Teyana Taylor says she's the inspiration behind "Empire"

HAIRY SITUATION: It's a battle of the hair wars. Foxy Brown threw some jabs at Remy Ma via Instagram over whoever was the first to rock the bone straight hair. Indeed the black hair is Foxy's trademark but she's not the only girl. As much as I love Foxy I see she does stuff like this to keep herself in the news. I mean I don't even think its that serious to be arguing over who was the first to do this and who was the first to do that. How about you be the first to drop an album after 14 long years? That's the problem with Foxy. She boasts and brags about who she was and what she did in her heyday but has not done a substantial thing since but pick fights with people. Remy Ma did respond but it wasn't even a nasty response. She just said something along the lines of I been rocking the 40 inch weave with the blond bangs etc. And going back to Foxy, she took a page out of Azealia Banks' book when she was sporting the colorful mermaid hairstyle briefly which w…

throwback video: the boys - crazy

Image
The Boys, a quartet on the Motown Records label released the video to their single "Crazy". The song was released in 1990 and poked fun at other videos such as Madonna's "Vogue", Michael Jackson's "Thriller", and Bobby Brown's "Every Little Step". I'm not sure what happened to the group after this but I was six years at the time and the "Thriller" scene used to always scare me. Ha!

throwback video: the system - don't disturb this groove

Image
In 1987 The System released the video to their hit single "Don't Disturb This Groove" which became a late 80s staple and a classic R&B hit. I personally don't know much about The System but I know they had another hit with "You Are In My System" and they worked on Chaka Khan's "I Feel For You" album. So travel down memory lane to this 80s throwback!

throwback video: adina howard - freak like me

Image
"Freak Like Me" was the debut single from Michigan native Adina Howard. The song was released in 1995 and appeared on her Gold debut album "Do You Wanna Ride?". Nowadays Adina is a chef and she tours every now and then. Do you all remember this song? I definitely remember it because I was 11 at the time and my sister and our cousin was always in the car playing it. That was back when the cassette singles were popular.

CHRIS BROWN SPEAKS OUT. TAMI ROMAN JOINS 'BBWLA'. RIHANNA PREVIEWS NEW SONGS.

"BABY" LOVE: Chris Brown has sounded off on all the hoopla surrounding him fathering a 9 month old baby. "Kiss my ass...you nosey muthafuckers!" is what Chris Brown said. So what do you think about that? Does that belong right up there with the typical Chris Brown response? I think so. REALITY TV NEWS: In the world of reality TV, which I tend to cover every now and then, Basketball Wives L.A. is looking for new castmates and what better way to do that than to reach to castmates from the original series. Both Evelyn Lozada and Tami Roman had been approached to join the series. While Evelyn has turned down the show, Tami has reportedly joined the new season. Last season of Basketball Wives L.A. saw a season high and was quickly renewed by VH1. Speaking of Evelyn, there were rumors that she was pregnant again but she has since denied the rumors. NEW ALBUM NEWS: And Rihanna has been teasing new songs from her upcoming album, one being "Higher" and the other …

IGGY AZALEA QUITS INSTAGRAM. KIM KARDASHIAN-WEST GOES BLOND.

MUSIC BITS: So there's not really much news to report in my opinion, well at least nothing that interesting. I mean Iggy Azalea is not that interesting but apparently interesting enough for me to report news on her. I don't have a dislike for Iggy but I prefer Azealia over her. But anyway Iggy has deleted her Instagram page and if I'm not mistaken her Twitter page as well. I guess Iggy just got fed up with all the criticism she's been facing as of lately. So now the question is when will she return to her social media pages? I say in another or so she'll be back to tweeting and Instagramming.  BLOND AMBITION: So Fashion Week is going down in Paris and Kim Kardashian West is sporting blond hair and I'm not a fan of it. She was seen sitting at a fashion show with her husband along with her mother, Kelly Rowland, and Solange. The blond hair makes her look old and she looked like a dope fiend. Maybe if she had a different shade of blond maybe it would of worked bu…

BIG SEAN DEBUTS AT #1. 'ATL' 2 IN THE WORKS. CIARA ON NEW NBC SHOW

"BIG" DEAL: Hey everybody! Congratulations are in order for Big Sean. His new album "Dark Sky Paradise" debuts at #1 marking his first #1 album. Big Sean's album sold 174,000 copies in its first week. The album was bolstered by the hit single "I Don't Fuck With You" featuring E-40. Drake sold 99,000 copies of his new album this week as well. So Hip Hop is definitely being represented as of now on the charts. DADDY'S LITTLE GIRL: Meanwhile I'm waiting on Chris Brown to confirm or deny if this child is his or has he? Anyway the woman in question Nia has reportedly hung around Chris' current or ex-girlfriend. Speaking of that she is reportedly done with Chris and crying in the arms of her best friend Christina Milian who sent out a cryptic tweet about the situation. As we know she'll be back with Chris by month's end. What do you all think? PART TWO: Moving on, the cameras are rolling for "ATL 2", the sequel which will …

Chris Brown A Father. Keyshia Cole Called Out. Kid Rock Trashed.

BABY DADDY: So Chris Brown may of fathered a 9 month old child and Keyshia Cole's husband claps back at Keyshia. It's certainly going down in the world of R&B today! Some wanna be model girl(no shade) is saying that Chis Brown fathered her 9 month old daughter. Chris has yet to confirm or deny the rumors. It's funny though because whenever Chris finds himself the subject of rumors or erroneous stories, he usually replies almost immediately. Well in this case, as far as I know he's yet to respond. I guess we will have to wait and see how this all plays out. HE SAID, SHE SAID: And Keyshia Cole has been dragging her husband's name through the mud for awhile now but I think things have hit the fan now. Tired of all the accusations, Daniel "Boobie" Gibson claims he's not what Keyshia has made him out to be. He insists that he is there for his child, he FaceTimes him, teachers him his ABC's and claims he was also there for Keyshia during her recent…

ludacris and jodeci to release new albums and iggy azalea's boyfriend comes to her defense

So......................how is everyone doing tonight? Here's what's going on in the world of music. MUSIC BITS: Ludacris will release his new album "Ludaverses" on March 31 via Def Jam Records. Ludacris and his wife recently announced that their having a baby and personally I think people are more excited about that then his new album. One album that I believe people are excited for is the new album from Jodeci, "The Past. The Present. The Future". The album title sounds like that of a greatest hits collection but it is indeed a new album. The album contains the hit single "Every Moment"(which is one of my favorite songs right now). The new album will also be available on March 31. Speaking of available Iggy Azalea's boyfriend Nick Young is now coming to his honey's defense. After a sportscaster made some unfavorable comments about Iggy, Nick sounded off on Twitter to the heckler and threatened to handle him when he seems him. I think th…

brownstone singer dead and ludacris and wife expecting baby

How are you all on this Sunday night? I'm doing fine I suppose. Not looking forward to the work week but what else is new? Any who here is a little news for you all. I have to report some sad news today in the world of R&B. Singer Charmayne Maxwell formerly of group Brownstone(song: "If You Love Me") has died after a fall at a soccer game in Denmark. Maxwell is married to producer Soulshock, one half of the production duo Soulshock & Karlin. Prayers to the family. And speaking of family, on a brighter note, Ludacris and his wife have announced they are having a baby. Congrats to the couple.

audio: christina milian - rebel

Image
"Rebel" is the newest single from Christina Milian. The song is currently available on iTunes and based on the snippet I heard, the song doesn't sound half bad. It actually sounds promising. I may want to check out Christina's upcoming album if and when it hits. But something sure to help this song gain momentum is a new feud that has arisen between Christina and Nicki Minaj. Christina was seen on her IG page with a shirt that says "Pretty On Fleek", a quote that was said by Nicki in her "Feeling Myself" track so Nicki made a comment saying she is responsible for the "on fleek" word craze that is going around. Then Christina responded basically saying she thought it was an equal opportunity phrase and then it went from there. It's a pretty pointless feud I guess but maybe Nicki was bored. I see people like to throw shots at Christina but she ain't no punk. She'll bite back! I think what's more interesting here is that bo…

keyshia cole puts husband on blast and kanye west names new album and shots rang out at t.i. concert

HEART BREAKER: So just when we thought Keyshia Cole was reuniting with her husband, we were sadly mistaken. The couple showed up hand in hand at Keyshia's premiere party for her new show "All In". That's when the rumors started with their being a reconciliation. Now it's being revealed through Keyshia exclusively that the chances of them getting back together are slim to none. Keyshia just revealed online text messages her husband sent out to a love interest of a video he invited her too. So now Keyshia is putting him, the messages, and the strained relationship on blast again. Something tells me though this situation is providing Keyshia the material she needs for her new album. "HELP"WANTED: Speaking of new albums Kanye West has revealed that his new album is titled "So Help Me God". The rapper revealed the news last night on Twitter. When the album is being released is unknown at this time. When Kanye was on The Breakfast Club though he sa…

audio: trina featuing t-pain and young cash - lean on me

Image
Trina is back with a new song "Lean On Me" and it features T-Pain & Young Cash. Trina revealed the song late last night(Friday) and has since been sharing the song via her social media streams. The song samples the Bill Withers classic of the same name. I do remember seeing Trina tweet about this song awhile back and with T-Pain on it, honestly it sounds dated. It's not a song I really cared to hear again after my first listen but then again maybe it deserves a second listen. How you all take a listen and let me know what you think? Trina is said to release her sixth album later this year.
