Is Jay-Z doing some early scouting for the Nets? The Roc Nation CEO and resident king of hip hop was spotted in the Kentucky Wildcats locker room after the team celebrated a huge win against the North Carolina Tar Heels earning a spot in the Final Four.
Darius Miller shared his experience of meeting Hov in the locker room during the press conference:
“That was crazy, I had to do a double take. I didn’t expect that at all. I just had to get a picture with him. That in itself was a pretty nice experience to add on to the Final Four. Going to the Final Four [is bigger] by far. But still, Jay-Z. It’s crazy. This whole day has been crazy. I’m still taking it all in.”
Terrence Jones also added:
“I said, ‘Oh that’s Jay-Z! We all gave him a handshake and he came in the locker room, and we just kept screaming ‘Jay-Z in the locker room!’ He congratulated us, just said he was proud of us.”
Who needs clothes when you can rock barely there boy shorts? Rihanna looks smokin’ hot on the latest cover of Rolling Stone magazine! Inside, Ri Ri dishes on the time her father slapped her so hard, he left a hand print across her face. She also speaks on sexting, her friendship with Jay-z and love of bad boys.
Beyonce’s publicist finally revealed that Mathew Knowles is no longer representing Bey as he manager. In a statement to the Associated Press, Beyonce says that she is grateful for the role that he has had in her career and that she still has love for her father. “He is my father for life and I love my dad dearly.”
I’m not shocked.
Former Destiny’s Child members Kelly and Michelle also broke away from Mathew Knowles. As the media focused on Mathew’s extramarital affairs and lovechild born a year ago, Beyonce and her father were seen in the public less and less together. In June and September of last year, rumors circulated that Beyonce and her father were feuding but those claims were shot down by a rep for Beyonce both times.
The question now is who will be taking over as Beyonce’s manager?
Wouldn’t be surprised if her husband steps in and she’s represented by Jay-Z’s Roc Nation!
The music Gods are definitely showing Jay-Z some favor! Longtime music staple and R&B, soul great Sade has requested the Roc Nation superstar for a remix to one of her songs.
Jay raps alongside the British songstress, who is known for avoiding collaborations with artists throughout her career, on the remix to “The Moon and the Sky,” a track found on last year’s platinum-selling Soldier of Love.
The remix, along with two other never-before-heard recordings, will appear on Sade’s double-disc set The Ultimate Collection. The 28-track offering also features classic Sade songs and will arrive May 3rd.
Now not only did he manage to hop on a track with one of the most sought after artists of our time, but he somehow managed to marry R&B’s reigning queen Beyonce, had Oprah in the projects AND keeps Obama on the text…I’m definitely scared of what Jay-Z is gonna do next!
And ya’ll wonder why they call him the greatest…
Hip Hop’s royal couple, husband and wife Jay-Z and Beyonce, are said to be in the studio with Dr. Dre working on a song for his long anticipated album “Detox.” The couple hasn’t recorded a song together since 2007.
A source recently told UK newspaper The Sun:
“Jay and Dre have recorded their verses with the chorus left open for Beyoncé to sing. The producer has worked on Detox for over a decade. He wanted the couple together.”
When Jay and Bey get together on a track it’s always magic…but don’t hold your breath on when you’ll actually hear the song since “Detox” is literally taking FOREVER to be completed.
Lil Kim holds nothing back in her recent interview with Rap-Up.
The Queen Bee chops it up about her upcoming album, working with Dr. Dre, getting offers from Jay-Z and more.
Now that your mixtape Black Friday is out, when are we going to get the next studio album?
I’m always working. You’re gonna always hear music from me. I can honestly say I’m so proud of the body of work that I’ve been producing. It’s a new sound for me, something that I think my fans are gonna love and I’m excited about the new direction. I’m basically always working. You’re gonna always hear music from me, but you’re gonna have that coming right after [the mixtape]. We got some surprises and some treats.
Do you have an album title yet?
I have a few, but I really don’t want to mention them now.
Is it going to be more like the Hard Core days or will we see the pop side of Kim?
You’re gonna get a mixture. There’s no way to just go straight Hard Core. I’m not one of those artists that say, “OK, I’m in a Hard Core mood, so everything’s gonna be Hard Core.” I’m not one of those artists. I don’t live my life like that. I don’t wake up every day and feel that same feeling. I live by the nature really. There are artists who will take a certain concept and go with that concept through the whole album; I’m not like that. I’m an artist who likes for everything to be universal. Continue reading
