Note from Ryan Lewis:

It seems like when a music video comes out, the title that receives all of the credit and travels with a film is that of the director. It's as though the director is the "artist" or "creator" of the music video, when in reality a music video is first a written treatment, produced (putting together ingredients like actors and locations), shot and directed, cut on the editing board and finally color graded. The music might be fine tuned and scored specifically for that film. There are so many variables that are completely equal if not sometimes more complicated than directing, it's a shame that so much credit comes down to whoever fulfills that position. A director wouldn't have shit to direct without a producer. A producer would have nothing to produce without a writer, and so forth. 

For our team, I think it's even more complicated because roles tend to cross over. We simply don't work within the conventional hierarchy of the film industry (director, producer, etc.) Sure, people have concrete pre-defined roles based on their expertise, but our team has the remarkable ability to wear multiple hats. Can't Hold Us was a video that showcased this well. 

After three months of shooting, finally getting to those last few frames where you reveal the credits, it's a tense moment. There isn't exactly a sensible way to do it, if we're trying to fit people into classic film roles. It leads me to the point that although we do our best to give people titles, this was a video fully created by seven individuals at the forefront. Take any of those people out of the equation, you'd be watching a very different video. I write this in hopes that you don't fall under the illusion that one person creates a music video, particularly at the Macklemore camp. We are constantly challenging and enhancing each others ideas and I take pride in believing that's the reason we make great videos. - Ryan Lewis

Amber Rose's New Wiz Khalifa Tattoo

Amber Rose really loves Wiz Khalifa.
No, she really loves Wiz Khalifa.
In case you hadn't noticed over the last three years, in case you weren't sure after them being joined at the hip seemingly 24/7, in case you didn't believe their engagement was real or dismissed the fact that they just had a baby boy together--Amber decided to take another step to make sure the world knows how hard she rides for Wiz.
The model got her rapper fiance tattooed on her arm.
Rose has a new tattoo of Wiz's face in elaborate detail on her right arm.
That's love.

Gucci Mane Fake Photo Surfaces

Gucci Mane's legal woes have become fodder for a viral image that many fans mistook as authentic. An image surfaced on Reddit and spread like wildfire throughout social media yesterday (April 17th) that featured the Atlanta rapper in court before a judge. The photo implies that Gucci's response to a judge, upon being asked if he was guilty of assault, was an offensive: "B*tch I might be."
The line is from Gucci Mane's song "Pillz" and the image looks to be a screenshot from FOX News.
The photo is a complete fake. As many pointed out, FOX News would not display such an offensive word on its screen without any censoring.

Rocko Explains Changing "U.O.E.N.O."

Rocko released an alternate version of his controversial “U.O.E.N.O." that features Future and Wiz Khalifa, and removed the Rick Ross verse that garnered such backlash throughout March and April. But speaking with DJ Whoo Kid, Rocko revealed that he will still perform the Rick Ross version live.
“Ross is on the record,” Rocko revealed. “You know what I’m saying? People like ‘Man, why you took Ross off?’ No, I didn’t take Ross off. Ross is on the record. I got multiple versions of the record. If you know what multiple mean… Ross is gonna always be on that record. Whenever I perform that record, Ross verse gon’ play.”
“The first amendment is freedom of speech. You know what I’m saying? And you entitled to say whatever you want to say as an individual,” he added. “With me, it’s no holds barred with me when I rap…When I’m feeling a way I’mma let it come out.”

Fertilizer Plant Explodes in West, Texas! Multiple Death & Hundreds Of Injuries Confirmed (GRAPHIC PHOTOS)

D.L. Wilson, public safety spokesperson addressed the media in a short press conference where he stated the fire is mostly out, but he cannot confirm the death toll. He also stated all injured have been taken care of and they will continue a house to house search for others throughout the night.
He also compared the size of this tragedy to what we've seen in Iraq as well as the Oklahoma City bombing.
Mayor Tommy Muska of West, TX told CNN that 60-80 private homes have been destroyed. He also states the fire is currently under control, although it is not out yet.
A fertilizer plant exploded earlier this evening in West, Texas, resulting in a number of fatalities.
Local Texas news station, KWTX reports:
West EMS Director Dr. George Smith says as many as 60 or 70 people died and hundreds were injured Wednesday night in a fertilizer plant explosion in West.
A rescuer earlier said he knew of five deaths.
Meanwhile, emergency crews were pulling back late Wednesday night because of concerns about the possibility of a second explosion.
Emergency crews from throughout Central Texas responded just before 8 p.m. Wednesday after the first explosion at the plant in the small town north of Waco.
The explosion was reported at around 7:50 p.m. in a frantic radio call from the scene of the fire at West Fertilizer at 1471 Jerry Mashek Dr. just off Interstate 35.
The fire started in an anhydrous ammonia tank and spread to the building, authorities said.
The resulting explosion spread the fire to the Middle School and to a nearby nursing home.
The blast was felt throughout the city and as far away as Hillsboro, Whitney and Blum.
Most of the injuries resulted from debris being thrown from the blast, glass, doors and other shrapnel, authorities said.
Everyone within one mile of the fire was ordered to evacuate.
Numerous injuries were reported and multiple ambulances were requested.
About 60 people had been taken to Hillcrest Baptist Medical Center by shortly before 10 p.m.
By 10:45 p.m. 61 injured victims had been admitted to Hillcrest, 44 of whom were in serious condition.
Two young victims were transferred to Scott & White Children’s Hospital in Temple, a hospital official said.
And, to give you an idea of how intense the explosion was, here is how it registered on a seismograph in Amarillo, TX:

Juelz Santana Talks About JoJo Incident Via Power99FM

Juelz Santana stopped by Power 99 for a quick chat. The Dipset rapper was asked about Atlanta rap star Waka Flocka Flame's recent appearance at a Dipset reunion show in New York City, where Waka took the time to diss his former associate Gucci Mane.
"I mean, it wasn't that it surprised me," Santana said of Waka's diss. "Waka's Waka, Waka wants to do what Waka wants to do. That's nothing to do with me."
But Santana was also asked about the recent altercation between JoJo Simmons and Hyneif--an affiliate of Santana's. JoJo was allegedly attacked over the diss record he released earlier this year, which took aim at Juelz.
"Nothing, nothing," JoJo said of the incident. "It's just, you know? It's cool, he's cool, we cool. It's cool. Nothing happened, nothing's going on."

50 Cent Opens Up About His Parents

Appearing on "Larry King Now," hip-hop superstar 50 Cent spoke at-length about his parents. The South Jamaica, Queens native opened up about his long-deceased mother, who was murdered.
"I don't think I really dealt with it in the early stages," said 50 Cent. "I lost my mom when I was eight, so I didn't really understand at that point."
"Later, they would consistently say, 'She's not coming back,' and I'm like, 'Yeah she is.' My grandfather would look at me like, 'He doesn't understand,'" he recalled. "Later, you grow and start to understand."
50 has no desire to connect with his long-lost father, however.
"I never knew my father. I never actually met him," 50 said. "Some people have that thing where they want that parent that they haven't had in their lives. I have no interest in it."
"The mistakes I made early on... he could've been here to help me not make those mistakes," he added.

Talib Kweli Addresses Boston Bombing

Brooklyn Talib Kweli shared his feelings in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombing that took place two days ago. In a statement to SOHH, Kweli explained that Americans should recognize the violent reality that most of the world faces daily.
"First off, it's a tragedy. There was an eight-year-old boy who was one of the two people killed amongst the 150 or so injured and it's just a shame to see something like that.
The Howard Zinn quote [I posted on Twitter] speaks to the loss of innocent life and how much of a shame it is. It's important to note that the quote I quoted from Howard Zinn was not in criticizing some Middle East terrorism situation, it was him criticizing our own government, the United States government.
We bomb innocent people, we kill innocent people all the time. As a matter of fact, just yesterday the United States, we had a bomb that killed 20 people at a wedding in Afghanistan. This wasn't a military thing. This was a mistake and we killed 20 innocent people. You never see stories like that on the news. 37 innocent people were killed in Iraq yesterday. We can't place the blame directly on the United States but we certainly got involved in Iraqi conflict.
So it's important to remember that we live in a world that innocent people die from stuff like this all the time. American life is not worth more than anyone's lives. So violence begets violence. If we want to see the end of violence now, we have to stop being so violent in other people's countries.
What we're seeing are the consequences of these situations. The world is now catching up to us. We now have to live in a world that everyone else has to live in. So because everyone else has to worry about suicide bombers and bombings on home soil, because we choose to participate in that for our own interests, we now have to deal with the same atrocities.
I'm not down with war at all. I'm not a pacifist but war and that type of behavior, whoever did that in Boston, that is like the worse in human humanity. That's like the most uncivilized we can be. To use violence on that level proves that we're still barbarians. We're not civilized."

Juelz Santana Pushes His Album Back Via Power99FM Interview

Juelz Santana is pushing back his forthcoming album. The project was previously announced as dropping in 2013, and that much hasn't changed--but Juelz told Power 99 that the album won't be released until towards the end of the year, at the earliest.
"Born To Lose, Built To Win, that's what everything is pretty much gearing up to," Juelz said. "Just pay attention, I told you, this is that free pay-per-view. [It'll come out] probably fourth quarter. I ain't got no date, definitely no date but you'll start hearing music soon. I been working for a minute. I ain't gonna say [I've been] out of commission, but I ain't been doing what I've supposed to been doing for a little minute. So I'm just doing a little making up right now."

Ray J Says He Has No Issue With Kanye

Ray J is still "explaining" his new song "I Hit It First."
Despite the fact that everyone pretty much knows who and what the song is about, Brandy's little bro insists that he has no issue with his ex, Kim Kardashian, or her beau, Kanye West.
"Yeah, he's a great dude," Ray told "The Boom Box." "I have nothing but respect. Even in these interviews I don't really go into a lot of detail about that situation because it's not my place to. For me it's staying focused on the concept at hand and to me that's Ray J, that's this wild lifestyle that we live and the experiences that we have within this lifestyle."
He also cleared up any misinterpretation that may lead people to think that he wants Kim back in his life romantically.
"Well listen, I have a talent agency, so for me it's kind of like, if you come back to the agency there's a lot more movie opportunities that might take place when you come back to the agency," he explained. "So I mean, people have to look at it a lot more from a business stand than anything else. We have clients, we have great people that we try to help make their dreams come true, so it was one of those kind of lines."

Tahiry Blasts Kaylin

Tahiry spoke up in a recent interview about her issues with Joe Budden's ex-girlfriend Kaylin Garcia. The "Love & Hip Hop" star addressed the altercation they had and, of course, threw shade on Kaylin's reputation.
“See what had happened was… I’m not proud of the way I act sometimes, but it’s a reaction. If you’re in my space I’m going to protect myself. All I saw was hair and somebody running after me out the corner of my eye," she said.
“Y’all could eat that sh*t if you want. All this damsel in distress bullsh*t," she continued. "Because I have a big mouth and I’m loud all of a sudden I’m the aggressor? See I don’t like that sh*t. She ain’t that innocent when she doing them threesomes with a d**k in her mouth.”
Classiness is at an all-time low.

JoJo Simmons Attacked

There are reports that Rev. Run's eldest son, JoJo Simmons, was attacked by one of Juelz Santana's Skull Gang associates and forced to call Santana and apologize for releasing a diss record aimed at Santana earlier this year.
A photo was posted on Instagram of Simmons fearfully talking on the phone as the unnamed man holds him around his collar.
"Guess who I caught y'all Lil punk a$$ Jo Jo that made the diss track look at his face when he ace! #facts shouldn't pop sh*t if u not bout that life real n***as don't care who u related too f**k n***a."

Pitbull Defends Jay-Z

Cuban-American rapper Pitbull has voiced his support for Jay-Z in the wake of the latter's controversial trip to Cuba. Pitbull released a freestyle over Jay's recent "Open Letter" track, making it clear he has no issue with Jay's visit to his home country.
"Politicians love to hate you/ But then they run away when it's time to debate you.Question of the night:/ would they have mess with Mr. Carter if he was white?/ Hmmm, rhyme with treasury/ One way another in Cuba is where they'll bury me/ Happy 5th year anniversary, Jay and B/ don't worry it's on me," Pitbull raps.
Jay-Z came under fire from several right-wing pundits for his trip, which was to celebrate he and his wife Beyonce's 5th wedding anniversary.

White House Responds to Jay-Z's 'Open Letter' Obama Lyrics

"It's a song, Donovan. The President did not communicate with Jay-Z over this trip," press secretary Jay Carney tells Politico reporter

Jay-Z's new song "Open Letter," a response to criticism over his and Beyonce's trip to Cuba, has racked up nearly 500,000 listens in just a few hours. Now we know that some of those plays came from the White House and the reporters that cover it.
During a White House press briefing earlier today, Politico reporter Donovan Slack asked White House Press Secretary Jay Carney whether President Obama gave Jay-Z and Beyoncé clearance for their travel, based off a lyric from the rapper's just-released song "Open Letter."
After reciting the lyric (“I turned Havana into Atlanta... Boy from the hood/ I got White House clearance... Obama said, 'Chill you gonna get me impeached/ You don’t need this shit anyway, chill with me on the beach'"), Slack asked Carney if Obama did indeed give Jay-Z clearance.
Carney brushed off the question with sarcasm: "I guess nothing rhymes with Treasury... because Treasury offers and gives licenses for travel, as you know, and the White House has nothing to do with it."
"I am absolutely saying that the White house from the President on down had nothing to do with anybody's travel to Cuba that is something that Treasury handles.," he continued.
And if Carney didn't make himself clear before, he shut down the conversation by denying White House approval straight forward.
"It's a song, Donovan. The President did not communicate with Jay-Z over this trip."
Following the presser, Slack tweeted some suggestions for words that rhyme with Treasury.
