Like I said King Beyonce (yes I said King, if you’ve been following her interviews then you know why) is in full effect and just released promo shots for her upcoming fourth studio album titled 4. Although her full album leaked not to long ago, Bey is still going full force with the release on June 28th and also plans on performing for the BET Awards we hear via Satellite.
Who runs this mutha….
The video that we’ve all been waiting for Novacane, released off of Frank Ocean’s mixtape Nostalgia Ultra has been a hit on the radio for a while. His entire mixtape is actually a good listen and I suggest everyone go on the web to take a listen.
Beyonce once again gets fab in another magazine photoshoot. She gets decked out in top hats, suits, and long jackets for the L’UOMO Vogue spread.
So do we love it?
If you remember, two weeks ago Lil Mama was spotted on the red carpet in LA for the MTV Movie awards rocking a futuristic look with a blonde bob. From previous looks of Lil Mama, we all assumed that she was instantly copying Nicki Minaj. However she had to the opportunity to speak with VIBE and said that actually Nicki was inspired by her after seeing her wear the look on the set of America’s Best Dance Crew.
On Her MTV Movie Awards Outfit & Nicki Minaj Copying Her Style
But my cut is blunt and futuristic and Nicki Minaj started wearing that bob on her head after she came to my show, so at the end of the day I know what I do and I know what I possess and I know who I am. I’m a trendsetter. The biggest form of flattery is imitation so I’m flattered. I understand the universal law. I’m not confused, I don’t feel like a follower. I started so many things that new artists are doing now anyway –my style, the way I’m aggressive on a track, the way I come through, the way my beat bangs. There are so many things that were borrowed, that I influenced that’s happening in music right, so I’m far from discouraged.
Yeah, she was a guest on America’s Best Dance Crew and immediately afterwards, everywhere she went, she was wearing the haircut, the same exact way. But that doesn’t make me feel like ‘Oh she’s trying to be down’ like how I said about our culture. I’m actually flattered because she imitated me and it felt like something that I was doing was cute and in time for the fashion and for the season, so it’s like let’s live, let’s do it
Well things are slowly starting to unravel with the infamous shooting of Tupac Shakur back in 1994. According to All HipHop.com, James Rosemand aka Jimmy Henchman who is known for managing the careers of Akon, Brandy, Sean Kingston paid $2500 to a man named Dexter Isaac to shoot Tupac. If you clearly remember Tupac was shot whiling entering the Manhattan Quad Studios while going to visit his rapper friend at the time Biggie.
Dexter Isaac who’s currently serving life in prison sent a letter to AllHipHop.com revealing the incident. Not only that but he apologized to Tupac and Biggies Mother as a hope to giving them some sort of relief or closure to that incident and what also ignited the huge beef between them as well as the East Coast/West Coast feud. Another thing Dexter confesses is he still has his chain that was taken from him on that evening. Here is the letter he wrote to AllHipHop.
I’ve also decided to post the video of Jimmy Henchman telling Sway that he did not have anything to do with the 1994 shooting. Continue Reading…
