DJ Carisma Talks New Single “Anyway,” #YoungCalifornia, Her Top 5 Emerging Artists & More

DJ Carisma

DJ Carisma is changing the game…and in more ways than one. The married mommy of one [adooooorable daughter] has not only managed to be a key player in the resurgence of west coast’s hip-hop domination, but she’s done it as a female in a man’s world without being half-naked and using her looks as a crutch. In fact, you’re far more likely to catch the Power 106 DJ in a pair of kicks and a hoodie than you ever will in a dress and some heels, but I guarantee your favorite artist – from Chris Brown to Tyga to YG – will show Carisma a ton more love than you’ll ever see one of these “Instagram models” get.

Fresh on the heels of releasing her debut single “Anyway” featuring Sage The Gemini, Tory Lanez, Eric Bellinger and Mishon, I hopped on the phone with Carisma to chop it up about everything from her forthcoming album (due out this fall on RPM MSC) to balancing being a mom with such a busy career, who she feels are the next big things coming out of the West and more. Hit the jump to find out everything you need to know on the woman Ty Dolla $ign couldn’t wait to show love to and that Nicki Minaj dubbed a “queen of radio.” Oh, and be on the lookout for the Young California x Young New York mixtape coming this month, presented by Carisma, Abby De La Rosa, DJ Amen, Dre Sinatra and

As most of our readers and ALL of my followers know, I’ve been up on Ty Dolla $ign for some time…tweeting, posting and even interviewing him just to spread the music out because he’s THAT dope. Our darling Ebro wasn’t buying what I was selling for a while, but he finally has come around (maybe after seeing Ty kill that Summer Jam stage?!) and took to the airwaves this morning to apologize to us both for not realizing sooner just how talented the Cali crooner is. I mean, he writes, sings, produces AND plays instruments! C’mon son! Check out Ty’s full sit-down on the Hot 97 Morning Show this morning below…and look out for that lovely apology around the 8:50 mark. What’s that they say? Oh, yes…”I TOLD YOU SO.” Ha!

If this is the new celebrity trend, I. AM. HERE. FOR. IT!

(Photos) Khloe Kardashian Rocks French Montana’s Name On Her Necklace [Plus The Alleged Couple's Weekend Travels]

Khloe Kardashian rocks a necklace that says 'Karim' in Arabic - French Montana's real name

It might as well be official at this point – Khloe Kardashian and French Montana are a thing! Though neither has come out to confirm their dating status, the reality star and the rapper have made it quite obvious through their recent outings together. On Thursday morning, the pair were spotted catching a flight out of LAX together, and as I suspected, Khloe accompanied French to his show later that night in Washington D.C. with Ty Dolla $ign. (I was also there – Koko is a sweetheart!) The next day, Khloe accompanied French to his club hosting at Allstar in Elizabeth, NJ with DJ Bobby Trends (video below)…and like the boss chick that she is…whipped French’s Rolls Royce through the streets! We then headed to NYC and linked up with Chinx at Club W.i.P., who was there celebrating Cipha Sounds’ birthday. We were there for maybe all of 20 minutes though, when cops shut the whole thing down early! According to a new report, the often-troubled club may be closed for quite some time, along with its sister club, Greenhouse.

The issue was apparently too many customers and blasting music above the legal limit, and a day later, a sign outside the club claimed it was closed for renovations, with no indication of when the doors would reopen. Sources say both clubs share the same liquor license, and they may be gone for good because it expires at the end of the month and owners have not

IFWT Interview: King Los Talks Bad Boy Departure, Diddy’s ‘Nobody’ Rant, Putting The DMV On With Wale & More

King Los

Fresh off the release of his new mixtape, Zero Gravity II, I sat down to chop it up with King Los at 25 Degrees in Hollywood…….and had quite possibly the best milkshake of my life. Los and I, along with his longtime girlfriend Lola Monroe, had just left the Revolt studios across the street, catching YG’s show and bicken back bein’ bool with him and his 400 crew before hunger…and business…prevailed. I wanted to catch up with the Baltimore wordsmith to discuss his new project, and get the word straight from the horse’s mouth on his Bad Boy departure and all the rumors surrounding the recipient of Diddy’s epic rant sampled on Rick Ross’ Mastermind cut, “Nobody.”

In the last month alone, Los celebrated his son’s first birthday, his own birthday, released a thorough project that trended on Twitter for days, and embarked on a cross-country journey with longtime friend and collaborator, Kid Ink, for the “My Own Lane” tour…and that’s all surface stuff. An hour, 2 turkey burgers and that amazing milkshake later…I learned there’s so much more going on in this King’s court than most realize, and the future is looking royally good. Find out what he and Wale are plotting, what Weezy is inquiring and what Drake told him during a recent run-in below!

IFWT Exclusive Photos: Rihanna & Drake Canoodle In The Club After MTV Movie Awards

Drake and Rihanna hit Greystone

Rihanna and Drake have been the topic of many a conversation as of late, as they’ve all but flat out confirmed they’re a couple. From grinding on each other on stage to globe-trotting together and showing some PDA during public outings, ‘AubRih’ are definitely entertainment’s latest ‘it’ couple….should they actually be a couple, that is. Last night, they put their love on display once again, this time at one of their favorite clubs – Hollywood hotspot, Greystone Manor. My girl/fashion blogger Marisol happened to be in the building as well celebrating her 26th birthday (HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHICA!) and snapped some exclusive pics of the pair for IFWT! Hit the gallery for a few more of the night.
