Nice to see Jay playin the guitar. For those that don't know, Noel Gallagher, of Oasis protested against Jay-z performing at the Glastonbury festival. He felt a hip hop artist didn't belong and would take away from sales. We think he was just bein a tad racist..Anyhoo, it was nice to see Jay shrug it off and come out on TOP!


Here it is folks.

Kimora Lee Simmons Get's Her Way In Court....

We all know that this blog relates to the music industry in some way and I feel this topic is worthy since Russell Simmons is a hip-hop mogul. Haha....Anyway, Kimora Lee Simmons was just awarded full custody of the couple's two children Ming and Aoki. Plus, she was awarded at least $40,000 a month in child support. I have been reading many blogs about this topic and many people have referred to Kimora as being a money-hungry, gold-digging b***h! True, the woman has loot herself, but is she really tripping by getting child support? No! I don't care if I was the richest woman in the world, the father would still pay up and I would cop that money! I know what it's like to demand child support for help with the kids. If the children are going to be using up a portion of my millions and I was Kimora, then they should be using up a portion of father's millions as well. After all, it is fair right? They did create the children together. Apparently, Russell has no problems with these stipulations as he issued a statement defending the court agreement. I don't think the child support payments are horrible though. A lot of people were saying that she was going to get over $400,000 a month for the kids, which turned out to be false. Therefore, I think the current agreement is definitely reasonable because we all know that both parents have a lot of change in the bank and that's real.

Rihanna States, "We Are Very Close Friends"

So about a week or two ago, Rihanna stated that she and Chris Brown are just "very close friends." Well, here's a photo of them cruising around in West Hollywood. Rihanna looked mighty comfy in that car don't you think? She's probably taken that car for a spin multiple times and Chris Brown too if you know what I mean. Those guys are not fooling me at all. They are together! Stop lying already!

Thanks to People.com for the photo!

Robin Thicke Wants to be in American Gangster II

Check out this new promo pic from Robin Thicke. I knew he was really a gangster. He's tries to act all smooth and romantic, but underneath all of that coating, he has that bad boy side that is ready to come out. I know this is just a promo pic, but it's his hint to movie producers that he wants to be in a gangster movie. Can't you see him now in American Gangster II as the star? I think I am on to something. If American Gangster II isn't in the production phase, then I think as script needs to be written with Robin Thicke as the star. Oh, and then they can cast his wife Paula Patton as the female lead. Come on. It would be hot!

Alicia Keys Jumps On the Retirement Bandwagon...

Alicia Keys is now saying that she wants to retire. Gimme a break! Why retire now? Your career is booming and your only 30! I have heard this all before. Jay-Z said he was going to retire and look at him now. He is still recording albums. The Game, Lupe Fiasco, and M.I.A have all jumped on the retirement bandwagon too. Who is Alicia Keys fooling? She knows that she's not going to retire. I mean, why retire from something that makes you happy? I know a lot of work is involved in the music business and all, but if you got love for it, then you got love for it and that is real. The singer sites that she wants to travel more. I say keep doing this music thing, and enjoy traveling the world on tour!

Well someone had to go for the slightly off deck Kardashian Sister

Here she is with Jeezy. I always said that the bigger Kardashian could get it too. Way to rep for the big girls Kim's younger sister. Jeezy is set to release an album soon. His first single "put on" is going to work. It is pretty cool.. Nice little record. I've never been disappointed with a Jeezy album though. He will get copped.

Dru Hill Introduces A New Member Again

I guess Dru Hill is about bring R&B back to where the music and lyrics was pack with emotion.??? Dru Hill was a very good and respectable group when they first enter on the scene. But do we really care about them anymore? I like Dru Hill but I am not checking for them. If you are a lover of music and I do mean music then you should now that there are some very very good groups thats on the horizon. And no I am not talking about groups like B5 but groups like Dirty Rose that are young and bring the noise. I doubt they that may have some good songs coming but I don't think they will have a impact. Wasn't Sisqó on Gone Country trying to prove his self as a serious musician. How many times Woody gonna leave the group and be replace by some other over singing hopeful. What happend to Scola?

Ice T is old as shit!! "This is Ice T, I'm break dancer turned gangster rap.."

Jay z -"My favorite music is heartfelt music..."

Hip-hop is constantly scrutinized. This host is clearly being a little bit condescending towards Jay Z. However, Jay has really gotten his bars up on his interviews. I remember seeing a young Jay stuttering on tv... Now a days, Jay is a pro on the tv. He knows how to brush off an ignorant comment and put it right back in your face. Throughout the interview the two built up an interesting dynamic with each other. The first part of the interview starts after the break in the middle...

Amy Winehouse's Performance at the Glastonbury Festival

This woman has been in the headlines so much lately and she is doing more things to keep people talking. Here is footage of her performing at the Glastonbury Festival with Jay-Z headlining the event. It was obvious that she was probably drunk while performing "Rehab." Her words were slurred while singing and she even forgot some of the words to her very own song. And if you look closely, you will actually see her elbowing a fan. As I have stated before, I really admire Amy Winehouse as an artist. She is really talented, but she is torturing her career right now. It really is sad. This performance was hard to watch! Let me know what you think!

The Verdict at the Glastonbury music festival is in......see for yourselves!!!!!

T-Pain and Steve Rifkin getting sued?!?!?

Allhiphop.com is reporting that a complaint filed Monday (Jun 23) with the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, Rodney King (no relation to the beat down rodney king), Jeff Byrd and James Reese are demanding a trial by jury and seeking an award for damages including any gains, profits and advantages obtained as a result of the alleged infringement.
“The musical hook is nearly identical,” attorney Gregory Bodell told AllHipHop.com. “It’s a little slower in my clients’ song, but it was of course recorded 8 years earlier. When I listened to it, I said, ‘That’s the same hook.’“Given how similar the hook is musically, and the lyrics aren’t that different, from ‘Makin’ love to a playa’ to “I'm in Luv Wit a Stripper,’ it’s hard to believe that Rifkind, who had my clients’ original song, didn't give the song to T-Pain,” Bodell claimed. “It is especially likely that this happened since originally, back in ’98 when he met with Mr. King, he and his A&R staff were trying to determine which of his artists would best perform the song. It seems they found T-Pain in 2005.”.....looks like t-pain might be in some legal troubles of his own.

Lil Mama Upset With Label Over Album Promo....

Lil Mama believes that her record label is responsible for her lack-luster album sales. Her new album, VYP: Voice of the Young People only debuted at #25 on Billboard charts and sold about 19,000 on its first week. The singer is disappointed with Jive Records for not promoting her album properly. Also, she feels that signing with a record label is not all that it is cracked up to be. In an interview with Rap-up.com, the rapper stated, "By signing with a label, I signed knowing that everyone was on the same page as me and understanding what was going on. But that wasn't what I thought it was." She feels that her label does not know what to do with her material. She also expressed that, "I'm an innovator and everything that I do is fresh. When you have something so new and fresh in your hands, you're supposed to know what to do with it." Let us know what you think about this. Any fans of Lil Mama out there?

It's starting to look like Ne-yo's BET performance was the introduction to a hostile takeover....don't believe me, listen to this video clip...

VIdeo Premiere-Talib Kweli "Eat to Live"

Check out Talib Kweli's new video "Eat to Live" from his current LP "Eardrum." Talib Kweli never fails and always spits that knowledge. He is definitely one of the dopest MC's in the game. I must admit I am a true hip-hop head at heart.

Flashback of the day - Sista

Ever wonder where Timbaland gets it from? Young Devante Swing production, young Missy and Mary J! Pay attention new producers, this is what a hot beat sounds like:

Is the music industry really struggling, or just alot of bad music????

1 million plus 2 weeks ago, followed by 721,000 copies last week??? Those are the numbers for Lil' Wayne's first week sales and Coldplay's first week sales. This marks only the second time the chart has seen back-to-back debuts of more than 700,000 since Nielsen SoundScan began tracking data in 1991. Eminem and Britney Spears did it the first time with Britney Spears' "Oops! I Did It Again" which sold 1,319,000 copies, and Eminems' "The Marshall Mathers LP" which sold 1,760,000. I truly believe if the record labels, not the artist, take the time to put out good music, then we will see better numbers than we have come accustomed to now. Remember, the record labels call the final shots....so about 80% of the time it's the label, not the artist.....and with promotion for albums like it is now, these labels need to look at what they are doing wrong before it's too late....oh my bad, it's past that point!!!!
