Welcome to the Future…Again




Rick Ross feat. Dr. Dre and JAY Z - 3 Kings (MMG Visual Piece)

Rosa Acosta "Happy" For Amber Rose

Rosa Acosta famously shared a smooch with her busty BFF Amber Rose last year, and the vixen says that she couldn't be happier for her homegirl and her relationship with hip hopper Wiz Khalifa. In an interview with SOHH, Acosta had nothing but positivity for the lovebirds and says no one deserves it more than Amber.
"I think it's amazing. I'm very happy for her and she's just an amazing girl," Acosta said. "I've had the opportunity to meet her in person and share moments with her and know the real Amber not only the person you always see on camera or the personality that the media actually gives you. She's such a nice girl and I wish her the best and I think they make a great couple. God bless her and I'm really happy."

Azealia Banks Lied About Nicki Minaj Tour?

Azealia Banks raised an eyebrow or two on Twitter after the young up-and-coming rhymer said that she was alleged offered to tour with Young Money's biggest female superstar. Banks tweeted that she was given the opportunity trek across Europe with Nicki Minaj.
"I got invited to tour with Nicki Minaj in Europe but I can't go because I have to finish my album during that time," Banks tweeted.
Sounds cool--but did anyone mention this idea to Nicki?
It seemed like Minaj herself took a subliminal shot at Banks afterwards, implying that maybe she had no idea about this supposed tour plan.
"#ManTheseBitchesDelirious," Minaj tweeted.

Khia Committed Welfare Fraud?

Khia may do well keeping her name kind of, sort of out there by starting random Twitter beefs on a near-monthly basis, but it looks like she hasn't quite figured out how to turn all of that noise into dollars. The one-hit wonder has reportedly been getting welfare benefits in the state of Georgia.
It is also being reported that her children are also under some sort of government assistance.
According to reports, however, Khis is being investigated for welfare fraud. Of course, the Florida-born former star has had more than her fair share of legal issues. The royalties from one hit can't be that good.

Jay-Z Named Exec. Producer For NBA 2K13

Jay-Z will be serving as executive producer for NBA 2K13, the popular sports video game that is currently available for pre-order. The game officially releases October 2nd.
Jay's website Life+Times made the official announcement earlier today (July 30th.) He also released a video promo featuring his 2003 song "Public Service Announcement."
The announcement comes on the heels of a flurry of basketball-related activity for Jay-Z; from being named director of the Barclay's Arena to his Brooklyn Nets' high-profile offseason acquisitions.

Flesh-N-Bone's Daughter Is Missing

Bone Thugs-n-Harmony rapper Flesh-n-Bone has filed a missing persons report for his 15-year old daughter, Monica Howse. Flesh and the rest of Monica's family are trying frantically to find the teenager, who reportedly went missing over a week ago.
Flesh contacted the San Bernardino County Sheriff's office when Monica did not return from work. It is suspected that she could be in the company of a 23-year-old Hispanic male named Alberto Silva Sanchez He is reported to be driving a 1997 black Ford F150 with Kansas plates.
The family issued a statement asking for any assistance in tracking Monica down. "We hope and pray for the safe return of our daughter. We ask anyone with information on her whereabouts to please contact the authorities."

Kid Cudi Explains G.O.O.D. Bond

Kid Cudi has always been one for isolation. The rapper famously crowned himself "Mr. Solo Dolo," but he recently opened up about his links to the G.O.O.D. Music family and why he feels more solidarity with his crew than ever.
"It's the only time where I feel like I'm around people that understand me," he told Complex. "I felt like an orphan before then. It's good for me, man. I don't really click well with people. I don't know what it is, but everybody in this family, I click with. From 2 Chainz to Big Sean to Q-Tip. I've been seeing Q-Tip since I've started in this business and he's always had my back. You can look online and check. I'm just really happy that everybody embraced me and they don't think I'm too much of a nut job. When you work with your family, it's love behind every record and you want everybody to win. I love hearing Pusha rap. I love hearing his raps, man. It will never get old. I've told him that. And that's the exciting thing. I'm around people that I'm a fan of, that I grew up on and sh*t, and I can watch them create and do what they do and I can contribute and be a part of history. It's wild."

50 Cent Album Release Date Revealed

50 Cent's upcoming album Street King Immortal will be dropping this fall. The news comes after the hip hop star recently decided to release his "Five (Murder By Numbers)" for free. 50 has experienced numerous delays involving the upcoming album, which has been in the works for years.
According to a press release from Interscope Records, Street King Immortal will drop on November 13th.
The track "New Day," which features Alicia Keys and Dr. Dre is the leadoff single from the album. No word yet on other guest appearances on the project.

R. Kelly's Still A Jay-Z Fan

In a recent interview, R&B singer/songwriter R. Kelly stated that he bears no ill will towards hip hop superstar Jay-Z--despite their well-publicized falling out several years ago. The two collaborated on The Best of Both Worlds and Unfinished Businessalbums, which culminated in a 2004 tour that infamously ended with R. Kelly claiming that he was attacked by Jay-Z affiliates.
But Kelly says that has nothing to do with how he views Jay today.
"Absolutely; huge fan," Kelly told MTV News. "I love a good marriage — I love love. Anything that works for me, anything that feels good to my soul, that feels like this is what I should do, I'm gonna do it."
"I don't care what it is, who it's with," he continued. "As long as it's positive and it works for both parties, I'm with it."

Rick Ross Addresses Colorado Tragedy

Rapper Rick Ross, like many other Americans, was deeply affected by the tragic shooting spree that took place at a premiere showing of The Dark Knight Rises at a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado. Speaking with 106 KMEL about the alleged killer, James Holmes, Ross offered sympathy for the victims and shared his anger at Holmes' behavior in court.
“You know, first and foremost, I send my condolences out to the family members of the victims. It’s just so senseless,” he said. “You think you’re in the movie, and as I watched him sitting in the courtroom, now he dizzy. Now he dazed. With all the pictures of him and everything that was leading up to the event, he’s smiling and this and that. Now you dazed. Don’t be dazed now. We need you to be focused when this comes down on you, because that was senseless. It’s unfortunate. Don’t be blinkin’ and all that. It could be one of his approaches to his defense, like he ain’t know what was going on. But that ain’t gon’ help you on this one.”

New Music: 2 Chainz Ft. Kanye West – Birthday Song


Source: Celtics ink Dionte Christmas


LAS VEGAS -- The Boston Celtics have reached an agreement with free agent guard Dionte Christmas, a team source confirmed to ESPN Boston on Sunday.
Full details of the deal are not known, but Christmas said following the Celtics' 92-77 summer league loss to the Los Angeles Clippers that the contract will be partially guaranteed.
"I actually got the call before the game started," Christmas said. "I don't really know all the details now, but I'm going to go over them with the staff. But I'm just happy, man, emotional. I actually got the call literally two minutes before the game started."
The Celtics and Christmas' representatives had been discussing a potential deal all week, with Christmas seeking some sort of guarantee from the club. He said he had received significant offers to continue playing in Europe, where he had spent the majority of the last three seasons, but Christmas maintained throughout the week that his ultimate goal was to make it to the NBA this coming season.
"That was my whole mindset," Christmas said, "to come in here and try to get (the Celtics) to like me and bring me in, and it happened."
Christmas later tweeted: "Wanna thank the @celtics for giving me this opportunity to make my dream come true ....#wordscantexplain".
Christmas, 25, went undrafted in 2009 after a four-year career at Temple.
In summer league play, Christmas averaged 14.2 points, 4.2 rebounds and 2.2 assists. He shot 47.9 percent from the field overall and 45 percent from 3-point range.

Frank Ocean Reveals Letter's Origins

Frank Ocean spoke at-length about his coming out letter and revealed that it had been written back in December of 2011 to be released alongside his album sleeve. He planned to announce his bisexuality via that method to address any potential speculation that the songs onchannel ORANGE were about men.
"I knew that I was writing in a way that people would ask questions," he said. "I knew that my star was rising, and I knew that if I waited I would always have somebody that I respected be able to encourage me to wait longer, to not say it till who-knows-when."
"People are just afraid of things too much ... Sure, evil exists, extremism exists," he added. "Somebody could commit a hate crime and hurt me. But they could do the same just because I'm black. They could do the same just because I'm American."

Lil Wayne Re-Teaming With DJ Drama

Rapper Lil Wayne will be teaming up with Atlanta's DJ Drama yet again. The YMCMB superstar announced to his Twitter followers that he and the mixtape guru will be working on a follow-up to 2008's "The Dedication 3" Mixtape."

"Been sendin alotta beats to the mixtape weezy..." Drama tweeted shortly after Wayne's proclamation.

“Hahaha yeah, ive know for a while, he told me a long time ago," he said. "It was just funny cause i was getting bashed as a homophobe or whatever and i kept saying dude how am i one?"
"I have gay friends like what the f**k leave me alone haha," he continued. "Yeah thats my n***a tho, sh*t is hard for him but he did that.”

Kendrick Lamar Partners With BET

Rapper Kendrick Lamar is partnering up with BET Networks' Music Matters to present a 23-city tour. The tour kicks off in Norfolk, Virginia on September 7th and continues through October 18th.
“More than a Hip Hop show, it’s an experience worth a life time,” says Lamar regarding the tour. “Kendrick is one the most prolific and phenomenal artist emerging today.

Pusha T Talks About "Cruel Summer"

Pusha T knows that fans are getting anxious for details regarding the G.O.O.D. Music album Cruel Summer, and he revealed in a recent interview that he's just as clueless about the project as everyone else.
"I'm in the dark just as much as you guys," Pusha told Billboard. "Nothing is conventional with these guys. It's to the point now, and it's so bad, because [Kanye West]'s been so unconventional… that people won't even accept conventional shit from him. I know we're not gonna start now."
"I'm like, 'Yo, what are we gonna do for the BET Awards?' He goes, 'Oh, I got something.' I walk out, it's like a f**king 50-foot f**king Lamborghini!'" explained Push. "You know what he tells us? He tells us things like what color to wear. 'Hey, bring white or black.' 'Okay, what are we doing?' 'Bring white or black.'"
"I felt like nothing was forced -- things were experimental at times, and I think you're gonna see that," said Pusha. "You're gonna see the experimentation in guys like Common, who is looked at in a certain way. And it was so great to be on a record that may have a bit of a different flow than what you would know Common for… He's in there like 'This sh*t is hot, this sh*t is good, I'm getting on this!' It's so funny, because we're sitting there, dying laughing, and then it kicks in that Common is really writing his verse. Then he lays the verse. And then you realize his verse is sustained and better than yours! It's things like that that happen during those processes. It was so fun in that sense, because it was just all type of fun and surprises."

Swizz Beatz Targeted For MegaUpload

Swizz Beatz is once again being targeted by authorities for his executive role with now-defunct file storage site MegaUpload. Despite Megaupload attorney Ira Rothken previously stating last year that Swizz Beatz was never an acting CEO of the company, federal authorities have countered MegaUpload's request to dismiss a federal indictment against them by filing a 20-page motion citing US citizens David Robb and Kasseem Dean (Swizz Beatz.)
The motion was filed after MegaUpload tried to have the case dismissed on the grounds that they are a foreign corporation and cannot be prosecuted in America.
Part of the motion reads:
"After Defendant Dotcom became Defendant Megaupload’s Chief Innovation Officer, the company appears to have employed at least two Chief Executive Officers in the United States: first David Robb and then Kasseem David Dean (also known as Swizz Beatz). These individuals represented the company before the Office of the United States Trade Representative (“USTR”) in relation to Megaupload.com’s inclusion on the Notorious Markets Review, and more recently, Mr. Dean through counsel has refused to cooperate with the government’s investigation. Delivering a summons to Mr. Dean, a resident of the United States, in his capacity as apparent Chief Executive Officer should also constitute proper service of process upon an officer of the company."

Nas Expected To Land At #1

Rapper Nas' new album, Life Is Good, is being projected to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. The album would give Nas his sixth number one album. That puts the Queens-born legend in company that includes Eminem and Jay-Z.
1996's It Was Written, 1997's The Firm with Foxy Brown, AZ, and Nature, 1999's I Am, 2007's Hip Hop Is Dead and 2008's "Untitled" all hit number one on the charts.
Life Is Good could possibly be the only title that will sell over 100,000 this week, Billboard reports.

Juvenile Addresses B.G.'s Sentence

Rapper Juvenile shared his thoughts on B.G.'s 14-year prison sentence. He said that he is very disappointed in the news and offered his sympathy to his old bandmate's family.
“I don’t feel good about it. It’s one of those situations where you get sick in your stomach,” Juvenile told AllHipHop. “I wish nothing but good things for him and his family, his kids, because you don’t want to see nobody go get locked up that long and be away from their family."
“I try to tell all the youngsters out there man, if you want to be gangster and go out there and thug-out and go out there and do certain things, just know there’s consequences,” Juvenile added. “It was a situation where it shouldn’t have happened; I wish it would have never happened. I wish he never would have got pulled over or whatever, but it happened. I just wish and am hoping that all you other cats out there take heed to that and don’t make the same mistake.”

"I just collaborated with people who I'm huge fans of, such as Dr. Dre for the first time. Dr. Dre and Jay-Z on the same record by the name of 'Three Kings,'" he shared. "Just witnessing that and being in the studio with both of them dudes was a hell of an experience. It's just something I could never even really see happening, so on a personal level, that was big for me."

Nas Album Release + 18 Years Since Illmatic * Jay-Z 16years Since Illmatic

Nas’ 10 th studio album Life Is Good is in stores today after his release party last night at Bagatelle in New York City. Fellow Hip-Hop artists in attendance celebrating Nas’ new album were Jay-Z, Swizz Beatz, Busta Rhymes, Jermaine Dupri, and music was provided by Q-Tip. Here a shot of Jay-Z and Nas celebrating during the release party. The above picture is great not only considering Nas and Jay’s past combustible history, but also for the fact they’ve entered uncharted territory for Hip-Hop as two emcees two decades deep that have maintained relevance and high skill levels. As they continue releasing albums, especially of the quality Nas just dropped, it’s becoming highly difficult to rank any of their peers or predecessors above them. Just consider for a second that Illmatic came out 18 years ago and Reasonable Doubt 16 years ago. Then reflect on how many trends and rappers have come and gone since then. The majority of our greatest emcees and groups are pretty much done as far as being at a high level by their third or fourth project. It’s been an amazing run for both and hopefully a signal that future older emcees will let their music mature with their age and life experiences.

Frank Ocean Confirms Target Ban

Frank Ocean's debut albumChannel Orange is not being sold in Target stores due to Def Jam's making the album available early via iTunes. The reasoning was confirmed despite the singer's manager initially insinuating that the company banned the album because of Ocean's coming out as a bisexual last week.
"Target has refused to carry Frank's album because of iTunes exclusive," the singer's manager, Christian Clancy, wrote in a tweet that has since been deleted. "Interesting since they also donate to non-equal rights organizations."
Nonetheless, Ocean confirmed that the album won't be sold at Target.
"Album won't be available at target," he tweeted. "Blame it on a generational gap. best buy on deck though."

50 Cent Resolves Label Issues

50 Cent's long-running issues with his label, Interscope Records, seem to have subsided at least for the moment. The rapper talked about his delayed forthcoming album and revealed that he no longer has any grievances with the company. He blamed their past differences on the pending end of their contract together.
"They're in full support of me now. We cleared up the audit issues," he said in an interview with MTV. "That's always an issue, when you get to the final album or the final requirement you end up going through the books with everything that you've done."
"Once those things are resolved, everyone is ready to get back to work, and that's where we're at," he added.

Khia Says Frank Ocean "Fooled" Women

One-hit wonder Khia decided to fire some sarcastic shots at R&B star Frank Ocean. The singer came out of the closet last week and has sparked much debate in the musical community--particular amongst hip hop artists and fans. But Khia decided to take the occasion to plug her book and accuse the singer of 'fooling' women.
“Hats Off To Frank Ocean At Least He Finally Told The Truth Now All The Women He Fooled Can Finally Know The Truth!!” Khia tweeted. “I Wrote A Book About It!! Be Sure To Get It Khia’s New Book Ignoring The Signs!!! LAWD HAVE MERCEY ON THEIR SOULS!!”
