Kanye West sat down with BBC’s Zane Lowe to talk about himself. The pretentious interview lasted for an hour and Jimmy Kimmel decided to spoof it as “Kanye Kid (re)Kreation.” Two kids recited actual lines from the weird sit down.
Evidently Kanye’s new pimp, Kris Jenner, caught wind of the spoof and emailed the hilarious sketch to her daughter’s baby’s daddy. He wasn’t too thrilled about it because he fired a few angry and belligerent tweets Jimmy’s way. Read More
- Remember how Lady Gaga used to ruin all of her epic songs with videos exceeding three minutes and fifty-five seconds? Drake has done the same thing with “Hold On We’re Going Home.” The Canadian mob boss uploaded the video on Vimeo. Ugh…
- Cher Lloyd, 20, lured T.I., 33, away from his groupies and outside of the club where she could have him all to herself in the “I Wish” video.
- Ledisi is blaming a special someone for radiating her life on “I Blame You,” her first offering since her 2011 LP Pieces of Me.
- Katy Perry must be stopped.
- Snoop Doggy won a pound of weed from his “mexican buddy Lui” on the Floyd Mayweather fight.
- I really wish I worked at Rockstar right about now. Their pride and joy, Grand Theft Auto V, has generated approximately $800 million during its first 24 hours on sale. It made $1 billion in three days.
- “We Can’t Stop” producer Mike WiLL Made It enlisted his alleged girlfriend Miley Cyrus for his club-banging new single “23.” Juicy J and Wiz Khalifa also contribute verses. The music video is pretty much a Jordans commercial, but it’s dope nevertheless.
- Paula Patton doesn’t know why people want her to care about Miley dancing on her husband Robin Thicke.
- Cher was not feeling Miley Cyrus’ VMA performance at all. “It just wasn’t done well,” the Pop legend told USA Today. “She can’t dance, her body looked like hell, the song wasn’t great, one cheek was hanging out. And, chick, don’t stick out your tongue if it’s coated.”
- P!nk called the performance “tacky” and said Miley can do better. “She’s really freaking talented. She’s beautiful. She can sing her arse off and to go up there and do that? She’s cheating herself and she’s cheating the rest of us… She can do what she wants. People can like it if they want. I’m not going to buy it. She can do better. I’ve seen her do better.”
- Little Mix channeled Kelis and Xtina on their new alt-Pop single, “Move,” the first offering from their forthcoming album arriving on November 11th.
- Chris Brown says that if y’all are gonna judge him, y’all should be judging Jay Z too because he stabbed someone and used to sell crack.
- Jennifer Hudson’s new Pharrell-produced, T.I.-featured song sounds like something we’ll hear at family reunions for years to come. Listen to the feel-good “I Can’t Describe (The Way I Feel)” here.
- Solange dances around a lowly lit flea market in the music video for “Lovers in the Parking Lot.”
- Ja Rule opens up about losing to 50 Cent and Murder Inc’s demise.
- Jason Derulo asks Jordin Sparks to marry him in the commercial for “Marry Me.”
- #BlackTwitter has relegated J. Cole as a boring rapper, but he’s unbothered by their comments.
Perrie Edwards, Jade Thirlwall, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jesy Nelson, collectively known as Little Mix, made their debut with DNA, a solid album packed with impressive urban-pop tunes. I expected the adorable, 20-something-year-old ladies to fill the girl-group void and experience the same success as their male counterparts, One Direction. However, the lovely ladies are making a slower climb to pop domination.
Personally, I think they’re too clean-cut and bubbly and lack that coveted sex appeal that makes female fans want to be like them and male fans be with them. I’m not suggesting they storm the VMAs in an ill-fitting outfit and act slutty with a foam finger, but I would recommend them studying Rihanna and Danity Kane—the leading contemporary purveyors of convincing and palatable eroticism.

The “War On Drugs” and law officials killing innocent people during raids have nothing to do with J. Cole’s “Crooked Smile” song, but the 28-year-old rapper decided to shed some light on Aiyana Stanley-Jones’ story in the accompanying video.
In 2010, Detroit police officer Joseph Weekley shot and killed 7-year-old Aiyana during a raid targeting a murder suspect.
The music video finds J. Cole playing a drug dealer with a young daughter. A white man portraying a DEA agent provides juxtaposition. He too has a young daughter and is leading the raid against Cole’s character. Read More

- Hit producer Mike WiLL Made It says that Ciara is already back in the studio working on the follow-up to her self-titled album.
- Rockie Fresh has a song featuring Rick Ross called “Panera Bread.” The video is not a parody.
- Juicy J clears up his controversial twerk scholarship.
Remember Nelly’s collaboration with Mariah Carey, “To The Floor”? One of two songs on The Emancipation of Mimi that should have never left the cutting room floor? That song came to mind upon my first listen of Nelly’s “Rick James” featuring T.I. Old-school funk meets hip-hop on “Rick James.” The genre-mixing production sounds like it was made on Neptunes, which is coincidentally where “To The Floor” was made. Read More
Some months ago, an awesome guy on the internet decided to dig up a few rappers’ old tweets. Many will argue that Wale was hit the hardest because everyone looked at him like he wore sweat pants and his name was Regina George, but I’m here to tell you that it was actually Danny Brown who took the biggest “L” that day.
Dude went from saying “Wale sucks” in 2009 to he has been riding with Wale since 2007 in 2012. He even said he loved and respected the D.C. rapper, and it’d be an honor to work with him. The title of an entry on KanyeToThe said it best: “Danny Brown licking Wale’s ass like he’s some kind of god.” Read More
For some reason, a lot of people have subscribed to the notion of ‘living for haters’. This logic is problematic, yet widespread. Budding singer Eric Bellinger is further perpetuating this imbecillic idea on his new song, “I Don’t Want Her” featuring rapper Problem.
Here are a few lines taken directly from the song.
If they ain’t looking at my woman, I don’t want that girl.
If they ain’t looking at my baby, then it’s something wrong with me.
If they ain’t hating on what we got, I’mma need a new woman.
