Trey Songz Said “#Lemmeholddatbeat” But Can He Rap?

30 Nov


On November 28th, Singer/ rapper Trey Songz released his new mixtape, #Lemmeholddatbeat. Trey’s newest release was in celebration for his fans and was his gift to his loyal fans on his 26th birthday. Everyone knows that Trey kept his career a float with his mixtapes and remakes, but his newest release has a little different flare to it. Most of the tracks on this mixtape feature Trey’s alter ego, ‘Trigga,’ in which he puts his rapping skills to work. Fans get a real taste of ‘Trigga” on “Don’t Forget Your Ring,” which received tons of fan support. At times, Trey does have a rapper’s swag but does he have the skills to go with it?

Nelly Next In Line To Come At Nicki Minaj and Universal Records

29 Nov

Over the weekend, rapper Nelly took to Twitter and vented his frustration with his record label, Universal Records, for failing to promote his latest album, Nelly 5.0. Allegedly, Universal only shipped 200,000 albums to record stores. Sandra Rose reports that a source, who is close to Nelly’s camp, confidentially told her that Universal Records allocated most of Nelly’s marketing budget to promote up-and-comer Nicki Minaj’s Pink Friday. According to Sandra Rose, “The source said Nelly was frustrated with the lack of promotion by Universal which led to decreased consumer awareness of his album. The source also said Nicki’s album took top priority over Nelly’s even though the critics say Nelly’s album is much better than Pink Friday. The source claimed some of Nelly’s promotional budget also went to maintain Nicki Minaj’s ‘image,’ which I took to mean her extensive plastic surgery, including hydrogel butt injections.”  Nelly 5.0 was released on November 12 and debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top Rap Albums chart, selling 63,000 copies in the first week.  But on Saturday, Nelly took to his Twitter page to publicly lash out at Universal Records (and by extension, Nicki) with tweets like this:

Rihanna Says She’s Tired of Talking about Chris Brown

29 Nov

Rihanna looks gorgeous (as usual) on the cover of British GQ. Is it possible for Ri Ri to take a bad picture? Didn’t think so. Inside the magazine, the singer talks briefly about the infamous incident with Chris Brown in 2008:

“Sometimes when you’re on the inside of a relationship like that, you can’t see it clearly for what it is. I left—it was the best feeling. It was so freeing. I witnessed it happening to my mum and I said I would never let that happen to me—and then it was happening. Now, when I look back, it bugs me out that I couldn’t see it for what it was.”

Later, while on Twitter, a fan questioned Rihanna continuing to speak on the incident with Breezy. Continue reading

He opened his set with an acapella rendition of “Bump and Grind” and then performed a medley of songs that included “Your Body Is Calling Me,” “When A Woman’s Fed Up,” “Happy People” and his new song “When A Woman Loves.” Remember when Trey Songz called out R.

Best Hip Hop Beef Tracks

29 Nov

On Friday (November 26), Lil’ Kim aimed a vicious dis track entitled “Black Friday” at Nicki Minaj during the release week of Barbie’s much-anticipated Pink Friday album. In addition to Minaj, Kim’s song, recorded over Pharoahe Monch’s “Simon Says” beat, also stung Young Money affiliate Drake, Lil Wayne, one-time mentor and friend Diddy as well as her rival Foxy Brown (“This the s–t the other bitch almost got killed for”). On the other hand, the Queen Bee gives props to the man responsible for starting Nicki’s career; Barbie’s one-time manager Fendi, who initially introduced her to the rap game through his “On The Come Up” DVDs. Lil’ Kim’s scathing response to Nicki’s “Roman’s Revenge” was definitely has hip-hop fans buzzing. The Queen B’s dis track is certainly brutal, but does it fall on the list of the best hip hop beef tracks of all time? Continue reading

Top Sports Brawls in History

29 Nov

Houston wide receiver Andre Johnson and Tennessee cornerback Cortland Finnegan were involved in a fist fight that got both players ejected in the fourth quarter Sunday. Finnegan set it off by pushing up Johnson’s face mask at the line of scrimmage. Johnson ripped off Finnegan’s helmet and landed at least two clean punches to Finnegan’s head and neck. Finnegan tore off Johnson’s helmet before players and referees intervened. The game was stopped for more than five minutes as officials sorted out the chaos. Johnson received a standing ovation as security guards escorted him off the field. Finnegan taunted booing fans as he exited out the opposite tunnel. The two had been pushing and jawing earlier in the game, and Johnson has called Finnegan’s antics annoying in the past. Last season, Johnson was fined $7,500 for taking Finnegan to the ground by the facemask during a scuffle after a play in a 34-31 Texans win. So here is a pic of the fight and some shots of fights you might not remember as we look at some of the most legendary fights in sports history. Continue reading

Madea’s Thanksgiving 10 Commandments

24 Nov

10 Rules for Thanksgiving

1. Don’t get in line asking questions about the food. “Who made the potato salad? Is it egg in there? Are the greens fresh? Is the meat in the greens turkey or pork? Who made the macaroni and cheese? What kind of pie is that? Who made it? Ask one more question and I will punch you in your mouth, knocking out all your fronts so you won’t be able to eat anything.

2. If you can’t walk or are missing any limbs, sit your ass down until someone makes your plate for you. Dinner time is not the time for you to be independent. Nibble on them damn pecans and walnuts to hold you over until someone makes you a plate.

3. If you have kids under the age of twelve, I will escort their little asses to the basement and bring their food down to them. They are not gonna tear my damn house up this year. Tell them that they are not allowed upstairs until it’s time for Uncle Butchie to start telling family stories about their mommas and papas. If they come upstairs for any reason except for that they are bleeding to death, I will break a foot off in their asses!

4. There is going to be one prayer for Thanksgiving dinner! JUST ONE! We do not care that you are thankful that your 13 year old daughter gave birth to a healthy baby or your nephew just got out of jail. Save that talk for somebody who gives a damn. The time limit for the prayer is one minute. If you are still talking after that one minute is up, you will feel something hard come across your lips and they will be swollen for approximately 20 minutes.

5. Finish everything on your plate before you go up for seconds! If you don’t, you will be cursed out and asked to stay your greedy ass home next year! Continue reading
