Guess What: Missy Elliott didn't know about Aaliyah album?!

There wasn't an Aaliyah song that came out that was not in someway associated with her close friends Missy Elliott and Timbaland. But since these posthumous album rumors began, with Drake as the ring leader, Missy says she "Had no clue there was one" she tweets "No one told me..."

Can this be?! An Aaliyah album without their assistance, if there was anyone who's participation should've been included it was those two! Though we haven't heard from Timbo, we wonder if Drake is really going to go about this album without reaching out to the two.

I know many of us remain hopeful for this album, but I'm against its making without Missy & Tims say!

Kanye West writes about his "Perfect Bitch"


Kanye West is professing his love for Kim Kardashian on a new song. The rapper has dedicated “Perfect Bitch” to the current love of his life.

According to the New York Daily News, the 35-year-old previewed new music while partying at PH-D Rooftop Lounge in New York City over the weekend. The material consisted of unreleased tracks from the upcoming G.O.O.D. Music compilation Cruel Summer and one indirectly referencing Kim Kardashian and ex-girlfriend Amber Rose titled “Perfect Bitch.”

A source described the music as “a similar production style [to the one] he used on his wildly successful album with Jay-Z last summer, Watch the Throne.”

On “Perfect Bitch,” he raps about finding the perfect woman, with a number of references to Kardashian and Rose. The song reportedly uses the same melody from “Carmina Burana,” a 1937 composition by German musician Carl Orff. Nas and Diddy also sampled the song on their 1999 hit “Hate Me Now.”

Amidst the speculation, Kanye confirmed that the song was about his curvaceous girlfriend, tweeting, “I wrote the song Perfect Bitch about Kim.”

In addition to Cruel Summer, due September 4, Yeezy has been in the studio working on the follow-up to 2010’s critically-acclaimed My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.

The Rapper & his Perfect Bitch star in a new MTV promo commercial for the 2012 VMA's with comedian Kevin Hart. Check it out below:

Azealia Banks may be turning over a new cheek!


Earlier this year, you may remember 1'o Azealia Banks twitter beefs were with West Coast rapper Kreayshawn. Most memorable of that twitter spat was Azealia telling Kreayshawn this:

“You’re a dumb bitch. And you can’t rap. I’ll sit on your face. … Fall back slut,”

Well the mermaid rapper proved she was capable of being humble by sending this apologetic tweet to Kreayshawn:

 “@KREAYSHAWN I apologize for coming down on you so hard earlier this year, I missunderstood that pornhub rt. I can be really defensive sometimes. I’m just naturally rude. LMFAOO it’s a NY thing… I can’t help it.”


Kreayshawn accepted the apology, complimented her music and then a collabo somehow was proposed between the two! Now that's what we like to see - Team Players in Hip-Hop because it doesn't just have to be 1 woman on top at a time!

Food For Thought: How great would it be for Kim to Tweet-Pologize to Nicki?

Drake goes back to High School.


The YMCMB rapper Drake, will be going back to High School this summer to get his diploma. He wasn't lying when he said "seeing my family have it all took away that desire for diplomas on the wall." But no worries, he won't be kept in class too long cause he's only missing one credit!

Before he hits the books though, he will be hitting the stage being the Headlining act at the next OVO fest!

Guess What: Beyonce to Direct and Star in Documentary.


Is there something that Beyonce has NOT done? I don't think so & now she will be directing and starring in a documentary about her life. The normally private superstar is going to be putting together a film that will give the public & her fans a glimpse into the life of Beyonce Knowles.

I'm all for it because i dont know about ya'll but I would love to see what her marriage to Jay-Z is like & how she's doing as a new mom. What I don't want is for this to go into theatres as a 3D movie *side eye* yeah Katy Perry & Justin Bieber!

Azealia Banks declines to tour with Nicki Minaj.


Trouble making rapper Azealia Banks has been making big news lately. She recently released her EP "Fantasea" & was recently made the face of a new Alexander Wang campaign!

She tweeted the other day that she was invited to tour the UK with Nicki Minaj in the Fall. Azealia wanted had to decline the offer because she would be recording her debut album 'Broke with Expensive taste' around that time.

I guess that's believable and not just her being shady. Though it would've been a huge good look for her.

Aussie rapper chick Iggy Azalea came onto the scene with the release of her 2011 mixtape "Ignorant Art" which got her much fame online and enough to get her a few record deal offers. Upon signing with T.I.s 'Grand Hustle' the long haired blond rapper began working on her mixtape "Glory" and released the single "Murda Bizness" ft. T.I.

After a long wait, Iggy has finally dropped Glory - a 6 track ep which features collaborations from T.I., Pusha T, B.o.B, & Mike Posner! Soon after dropping the mixtape yesterday, she revealed that she was already working on her next mixtape!

"I love glory, its a great ep. but #TrapGold is an era, its more than music—its a complete style. everything about it"

Jackie Christie gets hitched, again, guess where:


Reality TV star and friend to the blog Jackie Christie is known for her role on VH1's "Basketball Wives: LA." On the show she let us into her marriage with Doug Christie and into one of their many wedding ceremonies.

Backtrack: Jackie & Doug renew their vowels annually & this year was no different. The couple did something a little different this time, they did it at a Gay Club in West Hollywood! The couple did it to show their support for the LGBT community and it was their way to show they are pro-same sex marriage.

Jackie Christie had this to say:

The LGBT community means a lot to us, we’ve been long time supporters and we want to bring as much noise as we can. We think it’s totally unfair that everyone can’t be married to who they want, when they want (and) however many times they want.
It’s not fair that in the State of California that same sex couples are not recognized as legal couples.

People who were in attendance say that the cameras were indeed rolling so we may just see this on the second season of BBWLA!

Worth The Ratings? Cassidy alluding to Love & Hip-Hop Philly?


In a recent interview, rapper Cassidy (I know right.) expressed interest in becoming a part of "Love & Hip-Hop: Philly." The show would be the 3rd installment to VH1's hit show. Though this is in no way confirmed by anyone, could Cassidy have brought this up because its been mentioned?

Is a Philly season in order? After the NYC season, this new ATL season, and cast changes being made to the next season of NYC... I don't think we need Philly. NYC gave us what we needed, hopefully this new cast does too, & ATL has provided all the ratchet needed on tv for the time being. Say this did happen... who'd we see on it? Cassidy? Eve? Charli Baltimore?

Ne-Yo comments on Frank Oceans coming out.


Recently hiphop artist Frank Ocean made a revelation to the world on his tumblr in a letter that unveiled his homo/bisexulaity. This set the web ablaze with discussions regarding the industries point of view on the matter in 2012, how does it affect an artist, & what would happen to Franks music after this. Well, as proven by the release of his album "Channel Orange" a week earlier than its scheduled release date, the revelation has done nothing to his music and it continues to be great.

Many have chimed in and lent their support to Frank and encouraged his move. Ne-Yo is the latest to make a comment regarding the matter and had this to say:


“To each his own, if that’s how he rock, that’s how he rock, you know what I mean. It don’t change the fact that his music is incredible. It don’t change the fact that he’s an incredible artist. He chose to put his personal life out there, and that’s him. I don’t fault people for who they are, if that’s really who you are, you know what I mean. If that’s really who you are then by all means do what you do. I’m not gonna judge you behind that. That’s not my place."


Interesting coming from a man who's had his fair share of gay rumors. Either way, Ne-Yo has a point when he says its not his place to judge him. On a sidebar, how many would love a collabo between these two?!

Azealia Banks reveals "Fantasea" artwork.


The "212" beef starting raptress Azealia Banks has recently revealed the cover art for her upcoming mixtape. She has decided to be animated and continue to spread her mermaid culture for the cover.

The mixtape will have released tracks like "Aquababe", "Neptune", & "Jumanji." Though I don't have high hopes for this project or her as an artist, I'm hoping to hear some different music from her. Everything from her has been sounding the same.

Worth The Ratings? Hip-Hop gets Animated for 'The Cleveland Show'


The hip-hop Illuminati is taking control of your television this fall. Kanye West, Nicki Minaj, Bruno Mars, ?uestlove, and will.i.am star in the long-awaited episode of “The Cleveland Show” entitled “Menace II Secret Society.”

The poster for the season premiere was revealed at Comic-Con (via EW.com), showing animated versions of the music superstars alongside Cleveland Brown and his family (check out Rallo donning a Nicki Minaj wig). The episode was first reported about last summer. “We have an episode where Kanye and will.i.am, playing himself, and Nicki Minaj, playing herself, and Bruno Mars, playing himself, and ?uestlove—they’re all part of the rap Illuminati, the secret group that controls pop culture,” said Mike Henry, who voices Cleveland on the show.

Executive producer Rich Appel explained the plot. “Cleveland inadvertently breaks into it and then it’s how he will either bring them down or they’ll bring him down,” he said. “We have a couple of original songs with Kanye and will and Bruno, I mean, all of them, it was great.”

The season premiere of “The Cleveland Show” airs October 7 on Fox.

Frank Ocean comes out the Closet!


In a move more courageous than anything else going on in music right now, Frank Ocean the singer/rapper from Los Angeles who made it big with the debut of his song "Novacaine" has come out of the closet in a moving and sincere letter he posted on his tumblr.

Reasons to what provoked this letter are unknown, to me, but it was moving and touching all together. Here is the letter:

Whoever you are, wherever you are… I’m starting to think we are a lot alike. Human beings spinning on blackness. All wanting to be seen, touched, heard, paid attention to. My loved ones are everything to me here. In the last year or 3, I’ve screamed at my creator. Screamed at clouds in the sky. For some explanation. Mercy maybe. For peace of mind to rain like manna somehow. 4 Summers ago, I met somebody. I was 19 years old. He was too. We spent that Summer and the Summer after, together. Everyday almost. And on the days we were together, time would glide. Most of the day I’d see him, and his smile. I’d hear his conversation and his silence.. Until it was time to sleep. Sleep I would often share with him. By the time I realized I was in love, it was malignant. It was hopeless. There was no escaping. No negotiating with the feeling. No choice. It was my first love. It changed my life. Back then, my mind would wander to the women I had been with. The ones I cared for and thought I was in love with. I reminisced about the sentimental songs I enjoyed when I was a teenager. The ones I played when I experienced a girl too quickly. Imagine being thrown from a plane. I wasn’t in a plane though. I was in a Nissan Maxima. The same car I packed up with bags and drove to Los Angeles in. I sat there and told my friend how I felt. I wept as the words left my mouth. I grieved for them, know I could never take them back for myself. He patted my back. He said kind things. He did his best, but he wouldn’t admit the same. He had to go back inside soon. I was late and his girlfriend was waiting for him upstairs. He wouldn’t tell me the truth about his feelings for me for another 3 years. I felt like I’d only imagined reciprocity for years. Now imagine being thrown from a cliff. No. I wasn’t on a cliff. I was still in my car telling myself it was gonna be fine and to take deep breaths. I took the breaths and carried on. I kept up a peculiar friendship with him because I couldn’t imagine keeping up my life without him. I struggled to master myself and my emotions. I wasn’t always successful.
The dance went on.. I kept the rhythm for several Summers after. It’s Winter now. I’m typing this on a plane back to Los Angeles from New Orleans. I flew home for another marred Christmas. I have a windowseat. It’s December 27, 2011. By now, I’ve written two albums. This being the second. I wrote to keep myself busy and sane. I wanted to create worlds that were rosier than mine. I tried to channel overwhelming emotions. I’m surprised at how far all of it has taken me. Before writing this, I’d told some people my story. I’m sure these people kept me alive. Kept me safe… sincerely. These are the folks I wanna thank from the floor of my heart. Everyone of you knows who you are.. Great humans. Probably angels. I don’t know what happens now, and that’s alright. I don’t have any secrets I need kept anymore. There’s probably some small shit still, but you know what I mean. I was never alone, as much as I felt like it..As much as I still do sometimes. I never was. I don’t think I ever could be. Thanks. To my first love, I’m grateful for you. Grateful that even though it wasn’t what I had hoped for and even though it was never enough, it was. Some things never are…And we were. I won’t forget you. I won’t forget the Summer..I’ll remember who I was when I met you. I’ll remember who you were and how we both changed and stayed the same. I’ve never had more respect for life and living than I have right now. Maybe it takes a near death experience to feel alive. Thanks. To my mother, you raised me strong. I know I’m only brave because you were first…So thank you. All of you. For everything good. I feel like a free man. If I listen closely, I can hear the sky falling too.
-Frank

I call this courageous. An act of valor in an industry that frowns upon homosexuality in every which way possible. If his lyrics didn't provide crystal clear emotions I think this letter sure did. He's 10x more admired by myself for making this decision.

Rumor Has It: New Love & HipHop cast




With Chrissy, Jim Jones, & Emily B leaving "Love & Hip-Hop" you had to wonder, who in the world will fill those shoes? Well the rumors are spewing all over the web over the alleged new cast mates.

Who better to replace the main hiphop couple in the show then Tahiry Rose & Joe Budden! This would be GOOD, the two were together for 5 years & though they aren't together anymore it would make for interesting tv. & no reality tv show is complete without a little drama right? The shows producers are trying to get Somaya Reece to sign on for the season too! For those who dont know, Somaya was Joe's girl after Tahiry!

I think this makes perfect sense! Joe is about to be back in the charts with Slaughterhouse & it'd be nice to see what fuel Tahiry & Somaya can bring! Lets hope this is true!

Rumor Has It: Meek Mill banned from ALL NYC clubs!


Well aint this about a b**ch! Remember Meek Mills involvement in the Drake vs. Chris Brown brawl last month at club W.I.P? It seems as though this is haunting the MMG rapper. The "Houseparty" rapper has been denied entrance to various clubs around NYC including hotspots like 'Tenjune' infamous for their VIP attendees.

Meek is crying racisim but this just seems like clubs protecting their businesses. Due to the Chris Brown & Drake brawl, Club W.I.P got its liquor license revoked, was shut down by NYPD and will be heading to court with various lawsuits filed by partygoers that night that claim to have been affected in some way by the fight.

Though as we understand Meeks involvement was minimal but he was a part of it after all. Do you think the treatment he's getting is unfair?

Azealia Banks Trend Setter?


I'm sorry guys but I am still not sold on this chick Azealia Banks. The hip-hop newbie has done nothing but start beefs and get praise in the fashion world for her "Mermaid" fashion. But her recent appearance at the Serpentine Ball should put the fashion worlds love for her to rest.

The rapptress stepped out in a Moschino dress and orange plastic sandals. Lets get this straight, just cause it's Moschino does not mean it's not tacky. I don't see her getting beyond the success her single "212" has provided. What do you guys think, was this an IT moment for her?

Worth The Ratings? "Think Like a Man" sequel.

The hit movie "Think Like a Man" has grossed over $100million in the box office here in the states. Fans of the movies are now in for a surprise, there is a sequel on the way!

Screen Gems is moving ahead with a sequel to Think Like a Man, its hit movie based on the Steve Harvey book Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man, closing deals with Keith Merryman and David A. Newman to write the script.
Merryman and Newman write the first movie, which made Hollywood notice star Kevin Hart and grossed over $91 million domestically when it was released in April 20.
The movie followed four couples where the women use Harvey’s advice to reign in their men.
Will Packer will return to produce via his Rainforest Films banner. Harvey is executive producing on the project alongside Rushion McDonald and Rob Hardy.
It is unclear which castmembers will return at this stage, although Hart is a likely candidate, since he just joined Screen Gem’s About Last Night remake.

I think this is a great move for black cinema, the cast was stupendous and their work paid off! Though I'd love to see everyone return, I think a few cast additions or changes wouldn't hurt. Dont you think?

Rumor has it... there may be a sex tape starring Big Sean, Nicki Minaj & her a$$. It's being said that Sean has possession of a tape that him & Nicki did. The two have allegedly been having sexy time since before their hit single & video "Dance A$$" rmx.

I don't believe this one for one second but Hollywood works in mysterious ways! I mean... the two have very similar circles & they obviously had on screen chemistry. Hopefully someones camp responds.

No details on her role or the show have been released yet but we'll be sure to keep you posted!

Azealia Banks Hip-Hops biggest trouble maker?


"212" rapper (if you may), Azealia Banks has been stirring quite a few pots! With all the beef she has been linked to in such a short time being on the scene you'd think her "c*nts being eaten."

Her latest issue is with another female rapper who is no stranger to beef; Lil Kim. The two were set to do a song together when according to a press release sent out by Kim's camp, there was issues with Banks. Banks took to her twitter to clear her name and say that there was no beef, she simply wanted Kim to finish the track! Well, her approach was a little less subtle. Azealia went on Twitter to rant, vent & attack Lil' Kim.

We'll see how this all pans out in the career of the young hip-hop artist.

Worth the Ratings? 'The Avengers' breaks box office opening week!


The movie theatres have been set ablaze by the coming of the superhero flick "The Avengers." The follow up to movies like "Hulk", "Thor", "Iron Man" & "Captain America" brought together the heroic cast for this movie.

Everyone from comic book fans, kids, adults and everything in between came out for the opening of the movie & the numbers don't lie! The movie brought in a whopping $200.3 million dollars in its first weekend in theatres & a total of $641.8Million worldwide!

Rumor Has It: Kris Jenner wants Jay-Z & Beyonce.


It's safe to say at this point that Kris Jenner is the mastermind behind the entire Kardashian Brand. From the fragrances, clothing, accessories, & reality shows Kris takes that family straight to the bank!

Rumor has it... Kris now has an ingenious plan to boost ratings for their show "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" on E! It's operation "Beyon-Jay." The mogul momma allegedly wants the superstar music mogul couple to appear in an upcoming season of the show.

I would definitely have to think that this entire idea came about after her daughter Kim kardashian began publicly dating Kanye West shortly after her divorce to Nets player Kris Humphries; from their 72 day marriage.

Looks like the Kardashian Klan may use Kim's new relationship with Kanye in their favor!

Though he didnt mention much, he did say:

“There is a Marvel Comics franchise that has been inquiring about my availability for quite some time. I will not let any cats out of the bag prematurely, however, there is a Marvel Comics franchise that has been requesting about my availability.”

Wonder which comic is that - think we'll see T.I. as a mutant in X-Men?

Worth The Ratings? ABC working on new singing competition.

ABC network is working on a new Reality TV singing competition called "Duets." This is basically what the show is about:


“Ultimately, each Superstar judge will choose two singers to be his/her duet partners. Together the Superstars and their protégés will take the stage each week and perform in front of a live studio audience.

Did R.Kelly just Diss Fantasia?


Fantasia is calling R.Kelly "Disrespectful" for a recent stunt he pulled at an CIAA event they both attended. The event was being hosted by R. Kelly & Fantasia was promoted as the only performer for the night.

Upon getting on stage, R.Kelly took a moment to sing one of his songs. Before he sang though, he said this:


“I come to give you your money’s worth. I find that disrespect when things happen like that, especially in my city.”


Yup, that was enough to piss Fantasia off! We get it R.Kelly, you're the bigger star of the 2 but don't knock the woman's hustle!

Rumor Has It: a new Aaliyah album is coming!

It's been a little over a decade since the tragic death of singer/actress Aaliyah. 11 years later, a new album of hers is set to come forth!

Producers like J.Dub & Timbaland are saying "Yes, the project is in the works!" Timbo said that the album will consist of 15 unreleased songs by the songstress. But while producers are saying yes & the fans remain hopeful, no official statement has been released by her label.

Tyga looks like a liar!


That was a recent interview Young Money rapper Tyga did on MTV's 'RapFix Live'. In the interview he's asked about his collabo with Nas on his latest album "Careless World" - when he answers, he mentions that Nas will be opening his own label soon.

This is where the lie, lies. Nas' camp is denying the entire thing! Is this a matter of Tyga flat out lying? Or is this a P.R. issue where he's spoken too soon about it? We'll see how this plays out!

Cat Washington first claimed fame because if her appearance on Oxygen's 'The Bad Girls Club' where we saw the philly native be a "class act" by fighting, throwing drinks and showing off her body. After her appearance on the show, the model came about with her alleged romance with Young Money rapper Drake.

Well, she's making headlines again, but I'm sure this may be the last we see of her - she was arrested in Philly as part of a drug bust. The model was arrested for possession of various drugs and a fire arm. Guess she was a bad girl. Boy, does Drake know how to pick'em!

Worth the Ratings? is Janet Jackson the next judge on X-Factor?


Many are the rumors swirling around the US version of the hit show the X-Factor. After their first season, Simon Cowell made some judge cuts & gave Nicole Scherzinger & Paula Abdul the boot.

Speculations have swirled and a few names have been tossed around - from Beyonce, Whitney Houston & now Janet Jackson. In a upcoming interview she did with Anderson Cooper, when asked about the position the singer got quite cheerful whilst evading a real response.

Let's hope this mystery is solved soon. Would you watch Janet judge on the show?
