Cee-Lo Responds To The John Lennon Backlash

Cee-Lo Green performed John Lennon’s song “Imagine” during his New Year’s Eve performance on ABC. He changed around some of the lyrics to give his own spin on it, and this OUTRAGED Lennon fans. After witnessing all the backlash, Cee responded. “Yo I meant no disrespect by changing the lyric guys!” he took to his Twitter to say. “I was trying to say a world were u could believe what u wanted that’s all.” He soon deleted the tweets. Why delete that, though? Weird! Marisa Mendez

Assassinated Black Panther Fred Hampton’s Son Offended By Jay-Z’s Lyric Referencing His Father

Son of Black Panther Fred Hampton, Fred Hampton Jr., is not happy with Jay-Z. In Jay’s verse on “Murder To Excellence” off Watch The Throne, the emcee raps, “I arrived the same day Fred Hampton died.” To Fred Jr., this was highly offensive because his father did not just simply die, he was assassinated. During a lecture at the University of Chicago over the weekend, the activist had some not-so-kind words for who he called “Slave-Z.” Read what he had to say below and share your thoughts. Rightful reaction or overreacting? Marisa Mendez

NEW MUSIC: Jay Electronica ft. Mobb Deep – Call of Duty (with lyrics!)

Finally! It’s been forever and a day…and a whole year since he’s signed to Roc Nation…and we really haven’t gotten much at all from Jay Elec. Apparently a few people lit a fire under his a** these past 2 weeks (“Special thanks to Kate, James, Hammy, Tulls, Mr. Anita and Zac who opened my mind in ways it hadn’t been for years, in just 2 weeks. I lov u,” Jay tweeted today.) Looks like he’s back in full effect! Listen to his new track with Mobb Deep below! Lyrics there as well! Marisa Mendez

Pitbull Responds to Lindsay Lohan’s Lawsuit Over His Song Lyric

Earlier this week we reported that Lindsay Lohan has plans to sue singer/rapper Pitbull over his latest track, Give Me Everything. The hit tune, written by Ne-Yo and Afrojack, has a lyric that goes, “Hustlers move in silence, so I’m tiptoein’ to keep flowin’/ I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan.” SO wack and far-fetched to attempt a lawsuit out of that one, especially since Pit did nothing but state facts. The actress was indeed locked up. No further slander was made. SMH this girl is just looking for a check! Find out what Pitbull had to say about it after the jump. Marisa Mendez
