50 Cent is overseas to promote his SMS Audio venture, and stopped in Paris for a long sit-down discussing music, bloggers and more. He also got into the more juicy stuff, including an indirect reference to having Gunplay’s chain (after their fight at the Hip-Hop Awards), his tiff with French Montana and more. He does a great impression of Lil Wayne’s court deposition as well. Watch below.
Over the weekend, Joe Budden kicked off his “Second First Impression” tour at Toads Place in Connecticut, a popular venue for performances. Popular tweeter Relly (who also happens to be a friend of Joe,) caught up with Joey backstage for his new “Tale Of The Tape” interview series, where he’ll talk to different artists as they gear up to drop a mixtape. Joe’s A Loose Quarter drops Friday. See what he had to say about his tape, his girl, his tour and morebelow.
On the red carpet at the AMA’s last night, the rarely seen J. Cole chatted with Billboard about his forthcoming sophomore album, Born Sinner, and the song he just released, “Miss America.” He also revealed he’s begun production on a short film. Sounds like we’ll be hearing a lot of Cole in 2013, a stark contrast to his quiet 2012! See what he had to say below.
Tyga will be following up the success of this year’s Careless World: Rise of the Last King
(which spawned the hit singles “Rack City” and “Make It Nasty” with Lil Wayne) with a new album on the way, Hotel California. While walking the red carpet at last night’s American Music Awards, the Young Money rapper revealed when we can expect the project, and who will be the big name on its first single, “187.” Find out the 411 below!
Why wasn’t I there is what I’d like to know. Rihanna invited 200+ journalists to tour with her on the plane for the 777 tour. When they were looking for a story, this bad gal was no where to be found. Folks on the plane were yelling out chants such as, “Just One Quote!” Ri probably was hung over some where. The anticipation was building up for the hot commodity and sent someone into a butt-naked frenzy. Drop down bottom for more.
BLAST FROM THE PAST! Nice to see we can coordinate two different decades and make it one dope performance. MC Hammer and Psy closed up the show big at the AMAs with a “Gangnam Style”/”U Can’t Touch This” Remix. MC was truly thankful for all the support. See what he had to say in the gallery!
The 2012 AMA’s were great they had many surprises, but this one has to be one of my favs. The Korean artist PSY brought out MC Hammer on stage to mix the new Gangnam style with old moves from Mr. Too Legit Too Quit! Hit the jump to see the final AMA 2012 performance. Steph B
After a fewhot performances, Nicki Minaj, came through with a winter wonderland. Nicki cooled off the stage with a production of snow, but ironically her performance was nothing short of hot. Eccentric as always Nicki wore her hair in pink curls and added the only color to the white backdrop. Hit the jump for her performance.
