I usually don’t post random nonsense like this over here, it usually lives on GetDaPicture.Tumblr.Com, but I had to give this some burn. I’m sure this was a coincidence, but this lil chubster is relaxed by the vocal chords of Biggie’s “Hypnotize” single. Can’t say this didn’t make me “Awww” the seven times I watched it in the past 5 minutes lol. We ALL miss you, BIG
I’m not even going to front, the shit has me pretty damn excited. I just received word from a “little birdie” that these two are in the works of planning a massive event during Memorial Day Weekend down in Miami, Florida.
Why? I’m not sure. But my source informed me that the logistics to the show are pretty much wrapped up and will be set in stone pretty soon. Again, I’m just as shocked as you are. I wish I had more information for you guys, but as of right now I don’t.
Could this concert breed a joint project between the two? Will Snoop get his wishes for an album produced entirely by Dr. Dre? Only time will tell. Spill your thoughts about this event in the comments section below.
I’d ask when these guys were going to make it official and sign to Shady Records, but word on the streets is they did that a few weeks ago. The official announcement should be coming anytime.

I promised myself that in 2011 I wouldn’t find myself discussing the beef that is Lil Kim and Nicki Minaj because at this point it’s completely fruitless and shows NO sign of a festive lyrical wrestling match. However, with the news emerging that Kim and Mary J. Blige are joining forces to throw dirt at Nicki Minaj and Keyshia Cole last night, I figured I’d step in and say something in the most polite manner possible: KNOCK. THIS. SHIT. THE. FUCK. OFF!
Before I go on, please miss me with the “Lil Kim is a legend and Nicki Minaj is just a rookie” rhetoric because even a blind man can see that- that’s not what this is about. You know when your girlfriend/boyfriend nags you about the same thing..over and over and OVER? Yeah, that’s the lane we’re traveling in with this situation. And to be honest, my gripe isn’t even maneuvering in that direction, it’s the fact that Kim thinks it’ll be a brilliant idea to bring Mary J. Blige and Keyshia Cole into the cattiness.
Said Kim during a NYE function at Club Hippodrome in Springfield, Mass “I think this other bitch got a song with Keyshia Cole, right? Coming at me and the mothafuckin’ other queen, Mary J. Blige. Me and my girl Mary J. Blige about to eat these bitches alive where they won’t even fucking exist no more and erase their fucking social security number! We gon’ remind them who the fuck we are! I’m not playing with this bitch for 2011. I’m saying, we can rock together but bitch you ain’t taking nothing from me!”
Now we’re all familiar with artists jumping the gun and announcing singles, project ideas and such on a premature scale so I’m clutching my hip-hop bible as we speak and praying to the Gods that THIS is exactly THAT. Now I don’t even like Keyshia Cole, never really did except for the fact that her pillows looks EXTREMELY fluffy, so I could careless who’s aiming at her. But it seems like Kim is speaking for both parties on this go round.
Why is it that NO ONE had these thoughts when Keyshia released “I Ain’t Thru” MONTHS ago? Oh that’s right, because sometimes, JUST sometimes people use this thing called COMMON SENSE. Now maybe I’m missing something on “I Aint Thru” but I’ve heard the track a good number of times to know there aren’t any lines aiming at MJB. And like I said before, neither had anyone else.
Matter fact, when has there been any news of a rift between Mary J. Blige and Keyshia Cole? I mean can we really call THIS beef? I think not. I could go on for days and days on how absurd this shit would be if it actually became a reality, but I’d probably be talking myself into a migraine because unless Kim’s on the Billboard Chart at #1, shorty’s mouth is going to continue to run. It’d be wrong if Keyshia Cole smacked the shit out of Kim for pulling a stunt like this. She looks like the type to run up on you, smack first and ask questions last.
What do YOU guys make of all this nonsense?
While partying the night away at Club Marquee in Las Vegas, Jay-Z, Kanye West & Rihanna took to the DJ booth to perform a couple hit tunes of theirs. But what’s MORE interesting is the fact that Ye announced the arrival of his joint project Watch The Throne with Big Brotha Hov will be landing in about seven days.
While that’s a Ye & Jay advocate’s wet dream, I’m thinking that might have been the Ace of Spades and the happy spirit of NYE speaking for Mr. West, even though Jay let out a huge smile and chuckle after Ye’ proclamation. Not to long ago I was informed that Ye and Jay were releasing a composition by the name of H.A.M. produced by Lexus Luger on January 1 but obviously that date has come and gone.
While I wouldn’t mind seeing Watch The Throne magically become a priority within the next seven days, a project of that stature should be presented on a more calculated scale. Now if Def Jam/Roc Nation and whatever powers that be have this HUGE promo run they’re set to embark on starting tomorrow morning, fuck it…let ‘er fly. BUT, if that’s not the case, please don’t tarnish what seems like a passion project under the span of seven days lol. I might cry. Like REALLY cry!
How about this Jay and Ye: Release “H.A.M.” in the AM, start a seven day promo run visiting every radio station, late night platform and even do some club dates. Sort of what Jay did during that Hangar Tour back when he dropped Kingdom Come in November of 2006. I wouldn’t mind seeing that unfold again.
What do you guys think? Will be listening to Watch The Throne this time next week? Are you ready for it? TALK TO ME!
With writing credits on some of this year’s biggest hits it’s not very surprising people would be curious about the powerhouse singer and songwriter that has become a big part Alex Da Kid’s success in 2010. This year Skylar has been credited for penning all three versions of the mega smash “Love The Way You Lie” (even co-producing the piano version on Rihanna’s Loud), Diddy-Dirty Money’s Jay-Z assisted “Coming Home,” Dr. Dre and Eminem’s upcoming “I Need a Doctor,” and TI & Christina Aguilera’s collaboration “Castle Walls”.
But who is Skylar Grey and where did she come from? Despite signing with Alex Da Kid’s Wonderland Music imprint, it doesn’t take long to figure out that Ms. Grey is intent on keeping her identity a secret, at least for now. She even went so far as to wear a mask, hoodie, and obnoxious glasses in this YouTube video filmed in studio with Avril Lavrine. As it turns out Skylar is known by another name: Holly Brook. Brook, who’s real name is Holly Hafermann, released her debut album Like Blood Like Honey on Linkin Park’s Machine Shop Recordings label in 2006, though she is best known for her vocal assistance on Fort Minor’s smash hit “Where’d You Go“.
Holly is currently nominated for the Song of The Year for Love The Way You Lie, she is credited on Recovery with writing credits as H. Hafermann. The 53rd Annual Grammy Awards airs February 13th, on CBS.
Shout out to Illionaire for sparking the debate and assisting in putting the puzzle pieces together.
We’ve heard about this song before over the years as a track that includes Shady Record’s artist Cashis. I’m not sure if Cashis was removed from the song and it was revamped with new verses or not, but if it’s the original 2007 track sans Cashis’s verse I’m not expecting anything too exciting. 2007 era Eminem and 50 Cent do nothing for me. We’ll see.
According to the good folks over at ThisIsR&B, Diddy has recruited the likes of Lil Wayne and Mary J. Blige for the remix to the submissive offering “Somebody To Love Me.” To be honest, and I don’t care how none of you pricks look at me, that’s probably one of, if not my FAVORITE track from Last Train To Paris.
No word on if the Jerry Wonda produced track will be reworked or will their just be new verses added to the composition. If I had my way, I’d offer up an entirely different sound and feel to the track. I mean Diddy did invent the remix correct? A release date for the remix has yet to be revealed. I have a feeling we might hear this sometime around NYE. Who knows.
The two music monsters will be performing live at Las Vegas’ Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas Casino-Resort on December 31st in part of a three-day celebration, which is invitation only might I add. The two acts will perform solo sets as well. The concert will broadcast live on the Cosmopolitan’s 65-foot marquee that overlooks the Las Vegas Strip. No word on who might be opening for this special event.
I’ll probably get crucified for this somewhere down the line, but if I don’t say it someone else will.
