(Video) Yelawolf Performs “Pop the Trunk” at Roots Festival 2011

Yesterday I hit up the Roots Festival in Philadelphia, and it was definitely crazy! I had some time to catch Yelawolf do his thing on stage, and I had to tape him performing my fav track of his. Check Yela performing Pop the Trunk after the jump. @MarisaMendez


#IFWT Exclusive: (Video) Joe Budden Speaks on Slaughterhouse Album, Denies “Monster” Album Title

I stopped by the studio to visit my guy Joey, and randomly decided to ask him about the Slaughterhouse album that’s coming together since the boys signed to Eminem’s “Shady Records” label earlier this year. Yesterday, MTV announced the album title would be “Monster” but Joe tells us that’s not the case. Hit the jump to check out what he had to say. And pardon the quality…videography isn’t my thing. LOL. @MarisaMendez


Discussion: Lil Wayne and His Children’s Mothers … What Makes Them Coexist So Well?

It all started 12 years back in ‘Nawlins. Little Reginae Carter was born when Lil Wayne was merely 15-years-old, and the rapper eventually married (and divorced) Reginae’s mom, Toya. For years to come, Reginae would be Tunechi’s only child. As 2008 crept upon us and failed relationships with hip-hop divas Trina and Nivea were a thing of the past for Wayne, his mixtape presence was becoming way more prevalent and a strong buzz was surrounding him and the upcoming Carter III. @MarisaMendez


(Video) Exclusive!! Nicki Minaj Gives Fan a Lapdance in White Catsuit

Nicki picked a lucky fan out of the audience and gave him a lap dance on stage while performing her verse on Letting Go. It got crazy right before for a second because a different guy hopped on stage from the stands and security had to sweep him off! Ha! Check her do her dutty wind after the jump. @MarisaMendez


IFWT Exclusive Video: Diggy Simmons Brings Fan on Stage and Raps to Her During Arena Performance

Last night Diggy had what he said was his biggest performance to date, opening up for Hot 106.3’s Holiday Hot Night in Rhode Island at a venue of over 4000 people. He brought one special fan on stage and gave her roses and rapped to her…she was freaking out!! It was too cute. Check it out. (Btw Diggy killed his whole show….he’s definitely going to do his thing in 2011!!) @MarisaMendez


Bow Wow Concerns Fans and Friends With Tweets

On November 6th, Bow Wow concerned fans and friends with extremely negative tweets sent out from his account. The first (of 3) says he thinks he’d only have peace if dead (wow..that’s scary!) and the next two go on to say he sacrificed his life to be an artist and if he could go back he’d have never done it. The Twitter-sphere was undecided about how to react…and the reactions ranged from annoyed at his “ungratefulness”….”Hey GOD, u see that last tweet Bow Wow wrote?,” one user wrote. “He’s ungrateful, strip him of ALL his fortunes- NOW!” while others sent their prayers and feared for the worst. Personally I don’t feel Twitter is the best place to put those kind of thoughts, especially from a person of influence such as a young celebrity…but sometimes when you’re going through it, you just need to let it out. I hope he gets the clarity he needs and can talk to someone and put himself in a better place. The music business can be a COLD world sometimes! He has not updated since then but hopefully tomorrow he’ll have a better outlook! @MarisaMendez


(Exclusive Video) Wayne and Drake Perform Miss Me in Las Vegas PLUS Photos of Lisa Raye Backstage

Even though I (@MarisaMendez) was there just to support my YM family…I had to get some footage for the readers! Wayne ran out and surprised Drake during Miss Me (and he really had no clue…the whole camp told him all day Weezy isn’t coming…and then he popped up! I knew all day though and it was killinggg me not to Twitter it LOL!). I caught a few surprise people backstage as well. Lisa Raye amongst them. As well as another female linked to Wayne but I won’t say any names!
