Or, beef that people care less about than The-Dream and The Weeknd. That one was so wack that I didn't even blog about it. Not that Diggy Simmons beefing with J. Cole isn't wack, either, because it is. Whateverrrrrr. It's Sunday, and I'm working from my home office (aka my bed) so I ain't got a lot going on. Supposedly, this war of words in rap music was sparked years ago when Diggy was like 2 years old in 2010 when J. Cole released "Purple Rain" with the following lyrics: Good girl huh, father was a preacher sent her off to college thought I got her on a leash though from the outside though, them girls be the squeakiest you get ‘em inside them girls be the freakiest mischievous, downright devious say she want cake I got all the right ingredients running round fronting like a pure white virgin gave a n-gga dome while her father gave a Sermon Amen, let the choir sing she be walking round campus like the quiet thing so n-ggas scared to approach when they admiring man if they know like I know she got that fire thing pour a little OJ with some P-trone I’m feeling ok, but homie she’s gone when remmy Rev called she just ignore him I had her calling on God till the weed and than I hit the door n-gga Cole also stoked the flame with "Grew Up Fast," where he basically just namedrops Diggy, Russell, and Vanessa, but reportedly it was the 2 year old "Purple Rain" that pissed off Diggy. Yawn. Moving along. So, someone mysteriously leaked "What You Say To Me" on April 1st, and, get ready for it, it isn't an April Fool's joke. It's like that awkward moment when someone has a Pomeranian acting all ferocious like it ...

Well, no shit, Sherlock, who would have guessed that one? Just...look at him in his sweaters and grandpa glasses...and that guy's face to the left. You really think someone who doesn't have the attitude of a diva could pull that off? AllHipHop.com broke the news that Drake's diva ways cost him the cover of Vibe, and by extension, his lack of fashion sense, if he's getting all heated about not being able to wear his black leather bomber jacket for a spring spread. Okay, Aubrey. VIBE contributor Lola Ogunnaike revealed: “He was slated to appear on the cover of VIBE magazine to accompany this story . But he fouled that up when he arrived more than eight hours late to the shoot and refused to wear any of the wardrobe provided for him.” “He brought his own clothes, which was mostly Hemès and leather bomber jackets,” revealed a source at the shoot. “But it was a shoot about spring fashion. He was going on and on about wearing his leather bomber, and wasn’t letting it go. He said the stylist was too aggressive, that he wasn’t a model and he wasn’t feeling the vibe. He hopped in his SUV and left.” People having super inflated egos is extremely unattractive to me. Get the fuck over yourself. Is Drake more important than me? Well, it depends who you ask, most likely, because I'd say that I'm pretty damn important in my own little world. But the point I'm trying to make is that I'm not gonna act like a diva because I blog on occasion. Just, like, don't burn bridges, no matter who you are. AllHipHop
Blogs around the world, thanks for MissInfo.tv, confirmed that Chris Brown will be appearing on the extended version of Rihanna's interlude-esque song "Birthday Cake" from Talk That Talk. Last week, sources leaked that Breezy recorded a singing verse as well as a rap verse. This whole situation is pretty disrespectful to all involved parties, especially Rihanna's fans who look up to her and buy her shit. No one ever confirmed if this remix was approved by Roc Nation (see: Jay-Z -- I refuse to clap for Chris Brown) so it will be interesting to see if it drops tomorrow as it's supposed to. However, not only was "Birthday Cake" was my favorite track off Talk That Talk, but it was one of my favorites of the 2011 as well. Chris Brown kind of murks about half his rap verses, so I have a feeling that this remix might be pure fire, and I feel like a bad anit-feminist--even though I'm not a huge feminist anyway--blogging this, but I'm excited to hear it. Really excited. In other news that the media will probably forget about next week (I'm only writing about it a week later because I'm lazy), Chris Breezy attended Rihanna's birthday party with her. And stayed. I guess Chris Brown has officially been forgiven, whether you like it or not? What if all the blogs that had written about this story used those pictures from "The Incident" instead of one like the one I chose? Something to mull over, over cake cake cake cake cake maybe?
Just last week, Mitt Romney's Presidential campaign had those Youtube ads run while a couple naked girls made out behind A$AP Rock, and now forever I will refer to Mitt Romney as A$AP Romney. In the latest episode of hiphop clashing with A$AP Romney, K'Naan is pissed at him for playing one of his "hit song" called "Waving Flag" during the Florida Primary. To clarify, I threw those quotations up around hit song because I've never heard of it. According to K'Naan, he did not give A$AP Romney permission to use his song, and he is not endorsing him. Sounding almost as bitchy as me when I don't get dinner, K'Naan went on to say: I have not been asked for permission by Mitt Romney’s campaign for the use of my song. If I had been asked, I would certainly not have granted it. I would happily grant the Obama campaign use of my song without prejudice. A$AP Romney is not profiting from "Waving Flag," and I highly doubt his saw a bump in contributions based on playing this song. I have to wonder since he didn't seek permission, by extension does that mean DJ's have to get permission before they can play an artist's song? Seems like a slippery slope of sorts. So, I'm pretty sure that K'Naan can't vote because he resides in Canada. Does anyone care? Did the Obama Campaign orchestrate this? And again, does anyone care? Spotted at AllHipHop.com
In case you've been living under a rock, or in a cave, or some place that doesn't have internet connection, Jay-Z and Beyonce had a hovita and they named her Blue Ivy. Since Beyonce showed up 5 months pregnant at the Video Music Awards after performing her 4 shows in skin tight clothing that showed no whisper of a fetus, conspiracy theories have been rampant about the couple, besides the typical Illuminati ones. Consequently, the first conspiracy theory was that Beyonce wasn't actually pregnant, and instead had a surrogate. This notion was further perpetuated by the video of her on the Australian TV show Sunday Night where her stomach appeared to fold (see the :50 second mark), and the fact that she was purposely vague on when she would be having The Chosen One (sorry Harry Potter, there's a new Chosen One in town). For example, I found that link for the video on Fox News, who said she'd be having her baby in February. It's obviously not February yet, and I'm kind of relieved that Blue Ivy Carter wasn't born on February 9th. Whether or not you believe that first conspiracy theory, it was mere minutes before the other ones started swirling about the baby girl's name, Blue Ivy Carter. Sandra Rose decoded the name (pun intended) of Blue Ivy, explaining that Blue related to Hov's Blueprint albums, and the Ivy was indicative of King B's latest album IV, the relationship to which I shouldn't have to explain but I feel like I should anyway (IV=IVy). Again, another plausible, although believable conspiracy theory behind the explanation of "Blue Ivy," but really, who knows if it's true? Actually, who really cares, for that matter? The next one I saw ...
Kim Kardashian, a homewrecker??!?! Who would have thought that someone who was married for approximately 72 days could be a homewrecker?! I've never understood the appeal or the world's fascination with the Kardashians, or Amber Rose, for that matter, but I guess I'm in the minority. Whatever. No point in going into that. Amber Rose told the very reputable Star Magazine that Kim K is the reason that her and Kanye are finito. Kim and Kanye cheated on their respective significant others--Reggie Bush and her--with each other. Kim is one of the main reasons why me and Kanye are not together. She’s a homewrecker! were both cheating. They were both cheating on me and Reggie with each other.” was sending pictures, and I was like, ‘Kim, just stop. Don’t be that person.' I thought at least she’d be woman enough to respond to me. She never responded. It’s very important that us women stick together and we don’t f**k each other over like that. I want to thank her. Because if she was never a homewrecker, then I never would have met Wiz, and I wouldn’t be as happy as I am now. That's messed up, but let's not forget how Amber and Reggie rebounded...with each other. I like how Amber Rose calls her a homewrecker, but then thanks her for her homewrecking ways. Homegirl, you're still calling her a homewrecker! Talk about a backhanded compliment...err...not so much compliment, but you know what I mean. Lolz. Radar Online
Bangladesh kind of seems like a weirdo (see: this interview), and contrary to popular belief, I don't think everyone is a weirdo. If they act shady, or creepily hit on me, or whatever, then I'm going to deduce that they're a weirdo. But, that's probably what makes him so great, and what translates into him being one of my favorite producers. He is resonislble for Lil Wayne's "A Milli" and "6 Foot 7 Foot," as well as Kelis' "Bossy," Beyonce's "Videophone" and "Diva," and Gucci Mane's "Lemonade," that Big Sean made more famous that Gucci Mane. According to him, the actual The Source Magazine is what inspired him to do music? Riiiiight. I like to ramble and say weird shit, too. But, a joint album with 2 Chainz? I wouldn't be mad at that, not one bit! I wonder if 2 Chainz could fit it in his schedule, though, since he's so busy rapping on every song and/or its remix. I am more excited about Bangladesh's album with crazy features, that his joint project with 2 Chainz, but regardless, a body of Bangladesh beats is good any way.
In this behind the scenes video while Miss Keri Baby is getting her hair and makeup done, it seems as if she is hating on Kesha, requesting some "real music" when Kesha is playing in the background. Actually, it sounds like Miss Keri Baby's music is playing, and it's herself she's jokingly referring to when she says that she wants to hear some "real music," and she's talking about herself when she jokingly says that she hates the bitch. Yes, I refer to myself as a bitch, too. Like right now. Her makeup/hair guy goes on to call Kesha "vile," which she is. I really need to get that into my vocabulary more. We all hate that bitch, too, Miss Keri Baby, it's okay. But the fact of the matter is that Kesha did get Andre 300, Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, and T.I. over her Bangladesh-produced track "Sleazy." Plus, even though she threw shade at Beyonce, Keri Hilson is responsible for the vile song "Pretty Girl Rock," the ugly girl anthem. Spotted at Straight from the A
Here's an alleged leak listing the 2012 Freshmen for XXL Magazine. The memo doesn't look very well written, listing the same subject twice practically. But who cares? I couldn't get hired for a job with my writing skills, so companies obviously don't care even though my English professors lied and said they did. Anyway, this is by far the most anticipated issue of the year for everyone, including myself. 2011's list was disappointing, and if this is real, so is 2012. I haven't even heard of 4 of them, let alone listened to 11 of them. Wack attack. Just watch, I'll love every single one I haven't listened to. Besides wack artists being chosen for the list, it annoys me how vague XXL is about what defines a "Freshman," so they should define it. For example, Stalley is signed to Maybach Music Group and has released multiple mixtapes, including a rerelease of Lincoln Way Nights. Dom Kennedy has been on tour forever, it seems, or more specifically is constantly touring, and has released multiple paid projects in addition to mixtapes. XV's song "Awesome" was featured in a Verizon Wireless commercial. I'm pretty sure that Say It Ain't Tone is the weed carrier to Kanye West's weed carrier, i.e. he's part of Big Sean's posse. Chip Tha Ripper has been doing his thing for a hot minute, too. And I have to wonder, did they purposefully misspell Kreayshawn's name? There aren't really any unifying factors, at least that I can see, between the artists that would indicate the factors needed to be considered one of XXL's Freshmen. Past issues have not given me any more insight about the qualities that an artist needs in order to be chosen for this list. Some notable names missing ...
Drake on the set of his video for "The Motto," pictured with Mistah Fab. I swear, he's one of the few rappers who can pull off leopard print as well as, well, me. "The Motto" is ridiculous, and people always go crazy when it comes on in bars or clubs. It reminds me of my sophomore year of college when being hyphy was in, but then again, most of the students at UP weren't exactly up on current trends. Thanks to the large population of O'Dea for popularizing that music. As I digress like always, last weekend in Hartford, Drizzy deadened the latest round of the resuscitated rumor that he's dropping Young Money like it's hot. Or like the Nasdaq (shoutout to Childish Gambino for "homegirl drop it like the Nasdaq"). I tell you if you ever wake up one morning and you think Young Money ain't my team? You out yo' mother fuckin' mind, I'm a tell you that right now. My brother Lil Wayne is all the way in Australia right now. But I got my camera on at the back, and I just want to let him know how much love me and Hartford got for him. So if you've got love for Lil Wayne make some noise. Mostly, I wanted to post a picture of homeboy wearing that puffy leopard print Northface coat at some point, but it's so strange to me that there are always rampant rumors about him leaving Young Money. Each time, he says that that rumor is not true, yet sooner or later, they come back just as strong. The fact that they just keep coming back makes it more believable than any of the details surrounding it. Via Vibe
