Nas recalls listening to Al Green and cites how he’s similar to Jesus, Prince and Sade on Meek Mill’s “Maybach Curtains,” a lush, nostalgic single from Mill’s Dreams and Nightmares debut. Infamous & The Agency laced the attractive instrumental with a simple piano melody and crashing percussions.
John Legend sets the tone of the ‘from rags to riches’ mantra with his rich vocals. “Look how far we’ve came, through the fire I stood knowing we would reign,” he croons. Meek follows with a poorly delivered verse about going from dealing drugs to making $100,000 on Thursdays. Read More

John Legend has been silently crafting his fourth solo album, Love In The Future, the follow-up to 2008’s Evolver. Kanye West and Dave Tozer are co-executive producing the album with him. Considering this is the same team that presented John’s critically-acclaimed debut, Get Lifted, the pressure for them to create a masterpiece should weigh heavy.
In October, John will embark on a countrywide tour in support of ‘Future’. Ahead of his trek, Mr. Legend will preview records from the album. First up is the Hit-Boy-produced “Caught Up,” a song he co-wrote with Kanye.
Kanye West and seven G.O.O.D. Music disciples cover the August/September issue of Complex. Although 2 Chainz is only an honorary member, he was featured on the cover rather than an official signee (CyHi the Prynce, Teyana Taylor or Mr. Hudson). Pusha T, Kid Cudi, Common, Big Sean, John Legend and Q-Tip are the remaining six to complete the elite eight.
The art team behind the cover went for an underexposed and blurred look, which could symbolize most of their careers. The team, minus Kanye, discussed Cruel Summer and more. Read More
Like most of the world, President Barack Obama acknowledges that Kanye West is a talented individual that happens to be a jackass.
In a post-106 & Park interview, John Legend laughs off the POTUS’ remarks and states that his friend has never treated him like a jackass. Kanye is responsible for crafting Legend’s debut single, “Used to Love U,” lifted from his platinum-selling album, Get Lifted. Read More
Two of the most talented recording artists of our time, John Legend and Ludacris, collaborated for the braggadocios track, “Tonight (Best You Ever Had).” It’s lifted from the Think Like A Man soundtrack, which also features the title track performed by Jennifer Hudson and Ne-Yo.
John seduces his love interest by singing these sweet nothings in her ear: “Ain’t this what you came for/ Don’t you wish you came more/ Girl what you playin’ for/ Come on, come on let me kiss that/ Ooh, I know you miss that/ What’s wrong, let me fix that/ Twist that.”

As you know, Chris Brown and Rihanna set the blogosphere on fire with their ‘his and her’ remixes, “Birthday Cake” and “Turn Up The Music.”
Earlier this week, John Legend and his soon-to-be-wife Chrissy Teigen sat down with Andy Cohen on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live. While there, they were asked about Brown and Rihanna collaborating musically, following the barbaric 2009 incident. Because John is in the “music realm,” his fiancé chose to answer the question on his behalf. See what she had to say below. Read More
