First Week Sales Prediction of J Cole's "4 Your Eyez Only" Album

I think it's Interesting that J Cole would name his album after an old James Bond movie...I guess we should be expecting a classic album. Anyway, yesterday, news broke out that J Cole would be releasing his 4th album, 4 Your Eyez Only next week Friday (December 9th to be precise), and his fans have gone gaga as the news was out of the blue. I want to predict what the album would sell in its first week.

Camron Speaks on Ending Beef with 50 Cent







Back in the early to mid 2000s, most big name rappers in New York were beefing with each other. Jay Z going at Nas, Mobb Deep going at Jay Z, Nas going at Mobb Deep, Camron and 50 Cent beefing, etc. But, most of if not all those beefs have been squashed over the years. In his recent interview on 50 Cent's media company, This Is 50, Camron was asked by the interviewer how he ended his beef with 50 Cent (which started in 2007), and he said...


Charlamagne Speaks on Staying Calm During Interview with Birdman

A couple of months ago, Birdman went on The Breakfast Club show all angry at radio host, Charlamagne, and he kept repeating, 'put some respek on my name.' That phrase has become very popular since then. But what really caught my attention from that 2:30 seconds interview was the fact that Charlamagne was calm all through, even though Birdman was obviously angry at him and had come to the radio station with about half a dozen of his goons. So, why was Charlamage so calm? He answered it in an interview on VLAD TV.



Granted, this interview is about 4-5 months old, but I just saw it lately, and I thought it would be interesting to share it. VLAD himself asked him how come he was so calm, and he answered with...




"I'm the radio guy. You know what I'm saying. I'm not out here proclaiming to be a thug. Am not out here proclaiming to be a gangster. I ain't ever told nobody 'pull up on me, you gone see what's up...what's what.' You know. I'm a man at the end of the day. But go pull up on the guys that's being tough with you. Trick Daddy came to the Breakfast Club and said you don't know if you want to be a Blood or a Crip. You don't know whether you want to be a boyfriend or a girlfriend. Why run up on the radio guy?" (VLAD TV Interview)

First Week Sales Prediction of Drake's 'More Life' Album

Drake stays killing the charts, so it is only right I try to predict what his upcoming album is going to sell in its first week out. He has said More Life is not going to be a mixtape, and it is not a full length album. He said it is more like a playlist, and it would contain songs from not just him, but other artists on his OVO label. Based on Drake's star power alone, I predict More Life would sell between 400-650k first week. And you can take that to the bank.

DJ Clark Kent Says Jay Z Was a Big Nas Fan From the Start





I have always known Jay Z was a big Nas fan from him sampling Nas twice, and even rapping about Nas on his early albums, but it is good to hear someone from the industry confirm it. In his recent interview on VLAD TV, legendary music producer, Clark Kent said he and Jay Z used to drive around listening to Nas's early songs even before Nas got a record deal.



In case you don't know who he is, let me say, Clark Kent is a music producer who started out as a DJ back in the early 90s. He produced a lot of songs for Jay Z, Biggie, and Puff Daddy around 94-97. He and Jay Z were close friends back in the early to mid 90s.

Did Nick Cannon Marry Mariah Carey Just to Sleep with Her?





Could this be so? Did Nick Cannon marry Mariah Carey just so he could sleep with her? Well, it seems that was what happened. Although they are divorced now, Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey got married in 2008 after just knowing each other for a few months.


During his recent interview on Power 105.1 radio, Cannon was asked by one of the hosts whether Mariah Carey made him wait till marriage before letting him have sex with her, and he said...

What Is Really Wrong With Kanye West?




A couple of days ago, Kanye West ended one of his shows 30 minutes in and walked off the stage. He has been going on some crazy 'kanye rants' lately...a lot more than usual. And then yesterday, news broke out that he had been admitted at the hospital because of exhaustion. So what is really wrong with Kanye West?




Apart from the fact that I feel he has burnt himself out, he is using too much of his brain power and creativity. Creative work is not like normal physical work, it takes a lot more energy to get creative work done than it does to get physical work done, but if you have never tried to create (write a song, a story, design a dress, come up with a groundbreaking idea, etc), you may not really understand this.  When you overwork yourself physically, you get tired physically, but when you overwork yourself mentally, you get mentally tired, and it affects other parts of your whole human system.

White America Is Highly Racists Towards African Americans in 2016







I watched Mr. Church yesterday night; a lovely movie staring Eddie Murphy and Britt Robertson. What caught my attention in the movie was a scene in the beginning where the little girl walked into the kitchen while Eddie Murphy was cooking, and quietly walked back upstairs to wake her mom up and say, "Mom, there is a black man in our kitchen cooking eggs." It was like to her, that was an abomination. Yea, it is a movie, but most movies portray what really goes on in the real world. That part of the movie was set in 1971, so I still understand that racism in America was really high back then. But I never believed it was still really that bad in America of 2016.



Pic: Meek Mill in Different Parts of Rick Ross's Mansion





I guess Meek Mill stopped by Rick Ross's Georgia mansion yesterday, and decided to take a tour of the home. Below are pictures of Meek Mill in different parts of the 109-room mansion. The property formerly belonged to legendary American boxer, Evander Holyfield.


Pics: Ice Prince Chilling in LA (California)

One of the hottest rappers in Nigeria, Ice Prince is currently in Los Angeles, California (U.S.A) for a show, and he shared some pictures of himself chilling in L.A, on his Instagram page. Nice Roc Nation cap on.






Pic: Fabolous and Dave East at an Event Yesterday

This is a picture of Fabolous and another New York rapper, Dave East at an event yesterday. Dave East has really been buzzing on the music scene since he signed that Def Jam deal some months ago. He is still on Nas's Mass Appeal label though...but he is did a partnership deal with Def Jam. Cool move.

Checkout this picture of New York veteran rapper, Fabolous and his 8 year old son, Johan looking classy. His son is truly a chip of the old block.

Angie Martinez Speaks on Her Past Relationship with Q-Tip







I am just finding out myself. Actually, veteran radio personality, Angie Martinez and legendary rapper/producer, Q Tip (member of the rap group- A Tribe Called Quest) dated for a while back in the 90s. In her recent interview with The Breakfast Club crew (DJ Envy, Angela Yee, and Charlamagne), she spoke on how people didn't even know she and Q-Tip were dating till after they had broken up.








Pic: Fat Joe, Remy Ma, and DJ Khaled Pose for a Photo

It is good to see the old Terror Squad back together again. Remy had her falling out with Fat Joe about 7 years ago and then went to jail afterwards. And DJ Khaled got too big for Terror Squad, but it is good to see they are back together again, and working on music. This is a picture of Fat Joe, Remy Ma, and DJ Khaled Fat Joe put on his Instagram yesterday.
