Busta Rhymes Reveals Cash Money Breakup: "I Was There For Two Years" [Video] @DMVHEAT1 @jsrealistate1 DMVHEAT.COM

Posted by ADMINISTRATOR on July 24, 2014 at 8:53am 0 Comments

Rap veteran Busta Rhymes has raised eyebrows this week after revealing his run with Birdman's Cash Money Records has come to an unexpected end.

According to Busta, there is no bad blood but he felt like a change was needed.

"I was there with for two years and the opportunity was a great opportunity at the time, because of the type of deal that was done," Busta explained. "For me, with this particular project and all of the sacrifice that went into it -- recording the album for five years, I [lost] Chris Lighty making this album, I [lost] my father making this album -- the sh- I was putting into this album, I'm not compromising my vision for it." "So if I feel like if, in the slightest way, we ain't facilitating everything necessary for the vision to be seen and executed in the way I'm envisioning this sh- for the last five years, let me live and die in my own own inequity." (MTV)

Recently, Rhymes addressed the delay behind his upcoming E.L.E. 2 album.

"I'm still dealing with a lot of clearance issues, but I would say it's about 90% finished. I don't anticipate having too much difficulty with it, but there's a lot of real defining moments on the album that we had to use some very important content from different areas to just make the album shape up and reach the vision I had for an Extinction Level Event sequel. Ideally, if everything goes according to plan, I would like to have it out mid-fall and send people into the holidays with the most impactful project of my lifetime, God willing." (Rolling…

Questlove Torn Over Iggy Azalea, Calls "Fancy" Surprising Game-Changer @DMVHEAT1 @jsrealistate1 DMVHEAT.COM

Posted by ADMINISTRATOR on July 24, 2014 at 8:50am 0 Comments

The Roots' Questlove recently offered his opinion on the buzz surrounding Hustle Gang's Iggy Azalea and how much of an impact her infectious "Fancy" record is having on the music biz.

In Questlove's perspective, the Australian rapper is proof hip-hop has grown from its comfort zone.

"I'm caught in between. And I defend it. I see false Instagram posts like, "She said the N-word! She said the N-word!" I'll call people out -- "Yo, don't troll." I know you're ready to give your 42-page dissertation on theGrio about why this is culture vulture-ism. You know, we as black people have to come to grips that hip-hop is a contagious culture. If you love something, you gotta set it free. I will say that "Fancy," above any song that I've ever heard or dealt with, is a game-changer in that fact that we're truly going to have to come to grips with the fact that hip-hop has spread its wings." (TIME)

Quest even went as far as to call Iggy's single the song of this summer.

"I'm not going to lie to you, I'm torn between the opinions on the Internet, but I'mma let Iggy be Iggy. It's not even politically correct dribble. The song is effective. I'm in the middle of the approximation of the annunciation, I'll say. Part of me hopes she grows out of that and says it with her regular dialect -- I think that would be cooler. But,…

Common Calls Kendrick Lamar A Good Kid, Co-Signs Nicki Minaj's Lyrical Wrath [Video] @DMVHEAT1 @jsrealistate1 DMVHEAT.COM

Posted by ADMINISTRATOR on July 24, 2014 at 8:48am 0 Comments

G.O.O.D. Music's Common recently boasted about his admiration for today's rap scene, notably what West Coast rap star Kendrick Lamar and New York native Nicki Minaj bring to the table.

In Common's perspective, K. Dot is a part of hip-hop's next big movement in Top Dawg Entertainment.

"I can appreciate the aspects of the quality hip-hop and the freedom that I get out of artists, whether it's Ab-Soul or Kendrick Lamar," he said. "Their whole team does unique things." So can we expect a collaboration between him and the Compton MC? "Man, I would love to do a record with Kendrick," said Common. "That album [good kid, m.A.A.d city] to me is like one of the most complete albums we've heard in hip-hop in a long time. It was the album that set a milestone [...] from the new era of rap artists." (Rap-Up)

Common also spoke up on how much Nicki Minaj has grown over the past few years.

"I love that ['Chiraq'] joint. I was rockin' it as soon as I heard it," he said. "I think Nicki Minaj is a dope MC. She can really rhyme to me. From what she did on 'Monster' to now, she still is snappin'. When you hear her rap, you're like, damn, this woman is cold. I mess with Nicki Minaj." (Rap-Up)

T.I. Solves Tiny Problem, Tries To Make Things "Stay" In Place [Audio] @DMVHEAT1 @jsrealistate1 DMVHEAT.COM

Posted by ADMINISTRATOR on July 24, 2014 at 8:46am 0 Comments

Grammy-winning rapper T.I. is not afraid to let fans into his personal life after appearing to discuss where things stand with publicized reality television star wife Tameka "Tiny" Cottle on the new "Stay" song.

Although Tip kept the name-dropping out of his bars, he made ample references to their relationship.

"Man after everything we will never be the same/ Man I'm tired of tellin' lies, know you sick of playin' games/ I remember you got a tattoo, put my name on it," the Atlanta native raps on the first verse of the soulful song, which features Victoria Monét. Later, the emotion continues to flow: "And you can't say that I ain't changed your whole life since we met that day/ And when we get it right, God bless that day/ But until then, shawty, I just pray." (MTV)

A few days ago, both Tiny and T.I. downplayed their names being drawn into some controversy with the boxing champion.

T.I.'s wife Tiny confirms that statement ... telling us she's never had sexual relations with Floyd -- and thinks he only spoke out at the presser to get revenge for her BET Awards diss. As for T.I. ... he simply told us, "I hope he is enjoying himself. God bless him." (TMZ)

Despite the widespread coverage, Mayweather cleared up the matter last weekend.

Trick Daddy Clarifies Lil Wayne Relationship

Trick Daddy says there is "no situation" with Lil Wayne, adds that nothing happened between the two rappers at King Of Diamonds last year.

Following an alleged encounter between rappers Trick Daddy and Lil Wayne at a strip club in Miami, Florida last year, the relationship between the two artists has remained unclear. But during a newly-published interview with Vlad TV, Trick Daddy spoke on the standing of his relationship with Weezy.

According to the Miami wordsmith, there was “no situation” with Lil Wayne. He says the Young Money rapper instead “got in his feelings” and spoke ill of the Miami Heat and made other comments that needed to be addressed.

“Me and Lil Wayne didn’t have no situation,” Trick Daddy said during an interview with Vlad TV. “Lil Wayne had a situation with something he said about my city and something he said about Miami Heat. Me and Lil Wayne didn’t have a situation. We never had a situation. Lil Wayne got in his feelings—Where everybody get in they feelings. And he said some things. And got took out of context. And then when he went on he did a show and made other statements about ‘Fuck Miami Heat’ and ‘I f***** this nigga old lady’ and this and that. It was just a situation that had to be addressed…Hostile conversations usually turn into violent confrontations. We never had that. So, it’s never a problem. You know what I’m saying. The media can take it out of proportion and you know, that’s the new thing now. Drama.”

As far as their alleged encounter at King Of Diamonds, Trick Daddy says neither he nor Lil Wayne were involved in the altercation that went down at the strip…


Kanye West Defends Going Ghost On Twitter: "Me & Kim Had To Learn How To Communicate As A Team" @DMVHEAT1 @jsrealistate1 DMVHEAT.COM

Posted by ADMINISTRATOR on July 21, 2014 at 5:28pm 0 Comments

Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West gives fans a glimpse into his personal life and explains a resistance to letting the world see every habit on popular social media platforms in the new GQ magazine. #tweetthat

In his cover feature, Mr. West admitted he had to strategize with celebrity wife Kim Kardashian over social media.

"Both me and Kim had to learn how to communicate as a team. These are two LeBrons, you know? Meaning she could do s*** that a girlfriend in a relationship could never do. Obviously. And I could do stuff that a guy in a relationship could never do. So if you look at half my tweets back then, they were always, like, funny tweets that I wouldn't be able to say now. It wouldn't be respectful to my relationship. It's interesting, as I'm delving into being married: Like, what is my verbal creative communication? That's another thing I really like about clothing and film--you could still communicate with a film, because it's not you. But when you're a reality star or a rapper, you are the film." (GQ)

Despite acknowledging handfuls of tools like Skype and Instagram, Louisiana rapper Lil Boosie recently said Apple's FaceTime app was his go-to platform.

"I didn't know about Instagram or FaceTiming or Skype," Boosie admitted in an interview. "I didn't know about all that. That was crazy for me, you know? [What do I use the most?] FaceTime. ... [Next single?] I really haven't decided yet. It'll…

A$AP Rocky Still Has F'n Problems, Gets Slapped Back @DMVHEAT1 @jsrealistate1 DMVHEAT.COM

Posted by ADMINISTRATOR on July 21, 2014 at 5:25pm 0 Comments

New York rapper A$AP Rocky potentially has a nasty problem on his hands after reportedly assaulting a woman in 2013 during a Philadelphia concert. #slapback

According to reports, A$AP's alleged female victim has sought out some serious legal action nearly a year after the incident.

Hip-hop star Rakim A$AP Rocky Mayers hit a fan in the face so hard he knocked her down, and she's still suffering nearly a year later, she claims in court. Lisamarie Wade sued Mayers and his entourage, Live Nation Entertainment, Roc Nation, and the John Doe security employers and employees and event organizers and subcontractors, on July 17 in Federal Court. (Court House News)

The victim has blamed Rocky for physical pain endured from the summer attack.

Wade says she continues to suffer from "muscle spasm, migraine headaches, intense pain that radiates from her shoulders and into her arms and fingers, and exacerbation of pre-existing conditions." (Court House News)

Last September, Wade claimed she was the victim to Rocky's hands.

A$AP Rocky hasn't had the decency to call the woman he allegedly slapped during a concert ... and she tells TMZ she wants to nail him in criminal court. Lisa Wade --a self-described fan of A$AP -- called in to "TMZ Live" and gave the blow-by-blow ... which she says was a brutal, unprovoked…

Kendrick Lamar Crowns NY Rap Moguls: "They'll Always Be The King Of New York" @DMVHEAT1 @jsrealistate1 DMVHEAT.COM

Posted by ADMINISTRATOR on July 21, 2014 at 5:20pm 0 Comments

Top Dawg Entertainment's Kendrick Lamar finally dishes on his controversial "King of New York" proclamation from last year's "Control" song and revealed who he believes can wear the crown in the new Complex magazine. #kingofny

In K. Dot's opinion, the late Notorious B.I.G. and music icon Jay Z are the true Empire State kings.

On Lamar's earth-shattering verse he called himself the King of New York, a claim he shies away from now: "I feel B.I.G. and Jay will always be the King of New York." More important, Lamar called out nearly every rapper in his generation--from A$AP Rocky to J. Cole and even Big Sean and Jay Electronica--and claimed, "I got love for you all but I'm tryna murder you n*ggas." (Complex)

Earlier this year, rapper Maino said both local moguls would give him a pass over his King of New York underground project title.

"Biggie okay with that, man," Maino said in an interview. "Jay Z the king of the world. He ain't thinking about me, man. He don't care about my antics and my ways. He don't give a f*ck. Straight up." (Whoolywood Shuffle)

In 2011, fellow Brooklyn rapper Papoose crowned himself the "King of New York."

Remy Ma Receives H-Town Love: "Real N*ggas Out Here Support You" [Video] @DMVHEAT1 @jsrealistate1 DMVHEAT.COM

Posted by ADMINISTRATOR on July 21, 2014 at 5:17pm 0 Comments

New York rapper Remy Ma is receiving some Southern love from Hustle Gang's Trae the Truth just days away from finally being able to taste freedom following more than five years behind bars. #htownlove

Remy's hip-hop husband Papoose posted a clip of Trae showing his Houston support for her Monday (July 21).

"Yo, what up man? Shout-out to Remy Ma, I heard you gonna come home. Real n*ggas out here support you, man. Peace. Love. Trae the Truth. ABN, Hustle Gang. H-Town. Salute. Get that money." (Papoose's Instagram)

Last month, G-Unit's Tony Yayo posted a "Free Remy Ma" photo onto his Instagram page.

"Free Remy @50cent need to sign her first day out @_young6. She got bars for days.," Yayo captioned June 17. (Tony Yayo's Instagram)

Back in summer 2012, Remy revealed 50 Cent reached out to her during the jail stint.

"50 wrote me a great letter when I needed my appeal and I needed people to send letters and make sure that I have things set up so I could actually come home early," Remy added. "He was very cooperative to make sure that they knew everything was set up for me to come home [and] Keyshia Cole, that's my friend to the end, I'll never forget everything [she's done] to help me throughout the day. Those two was phenomenal -- and I'll never forget things they did…

Kanye West Hints At New Music Sound, Reveals "All Day" Anthem @DMVHEAT1 @jsrealistate1 DMVHEAT.COM

Posted by ADMINISTRATOR on July 21, 2014 at 2:15pm 0 Comments

Grammy-winning Kanye West is giving fans something to get excited about this summer after dishing on his new music and the concept behind a new singled called "All Day" in the new GQ magazine. #allday

Within his cover story, Kanye admits being influenced by longtime friend Jay Z on "All Day."

"I think just my usual pattern is like that. It's like a pendulum. The pendulum gains momentum by swinging in the other direction. Even lyrically, I think about certain lines that I say on my new single, which is called "All Day," that usually Jay would say, but Jay's not on there. So I say, "All day, n*gga, it's Ye, n*gga. Shopping for the winter, it's just May, n*gga. Ball so hard, man, this sh*t cray, n*gga. You ain't getting money unless you got eight figures." Right? Jay would have said that. And then eventually I would have came in with, like, whatever I come in with." (GQ)

West also hinted at when fans could possibly start preparing to hear his newest tunes.

"I don't know, man. I hope I can get one of these songs out in the next couple of weeks, just to have something up and running. But I think most likely September. I go back and forth. Like, should it be September or should it be October? Should it be November? When Beyoncé was working on her last album, she took a while. I was thinking it could somehow come out in June, like Yeezus, and just kill it for the summer. But then I'm…
