Eminem brought out Dr. Dre for his performance at London’s Wembley Stadium yesterday (July 11).
During the Detroit rapper’s set, the two collaborated on “Still D.R.E.,” “Nuthin’ But A ‘G’ Thang” (with Eminem performing Snoop Dogg’s lyrics) and “Forgot About Dre."
Addressing the recent Twitter beef between MMG label-mates Meek Mill and Wale, DJ Drama spoke with Complex News and said “families quarrel all the time.”
“Yeah, I mean, you know, I would tell those guys to keep it off Twitter,” he said. “Families quarrel all the time. You know what it makes me think of? It makes me think of, what would have been like fifteen years ago or twenty years ago if people would have had social media. There’s so much we missed from different eras because there was no social media. What would Beanie Sigel have said in 2002 and 2003? What would Kiss and Sigel been going back and forth talking about if there was Twitter at the time? That’s what it makes me think of, all the stuff we missed in the game because we didn’t have social media back then.
Meek Mill has been sentenced to three-to-six month in county jail, according to Fox 29.
The Philadelphia news outlet says that the MMG rapper is in custody now and that the district attorney was worried about the rapper’s behavior while he had been on probation.
During a newly-published interview with Mikey T The Movie Star, former G-Unit affiliate Bang’Em Smurf seemed less than impressed with the group’s reunion at Hot 97 Summer Jam a few weeks ago. He even shared his belief that the reunion took place because Lloyd Banks, Tony Yayo, and Young Buck were getting low on money.
According to Smurf, 50 Cent’s lack of camaraderie towards other artists has prevented the other G-Unit members from working with the artists he says are “popping right now.”
It has been a good two weeks for the folks over at Atlantic Records. The label released Ed Sheeran’s X which claimed the top spot on the Billboard 200 album chart last week, and now Trey Songz follows that up with another number one with Trigga.
The Virginia crooner’s 6th studio album opened with 105,000 units sold in its first week. While those are his lowest opening sales since the release of Trey Day in 2007, it’s enough to give Songz his second #1 album of his career. 2012′s Chapter V ruled the chart at as well.
As G-Unit prepares its upcoming album and mixtape, Young Buck has addressed how the G-Unit reunion makes him feel.
“It’s a good look,” Buck says on Whoolywood Shuffle. “First and foremost, it ain’t no bullshit where it's about a check. You know what I’m saying? From the very beginning, 50′s always been the big brother. You know, shit happens and that’s what happened.
Whether the intended purpose or not, Meek Mill’s Twitter rant against Wale helped the DMV rapper’s new song shoot to number one on the Twitter Trending 140 chart. Billboard reports Wale’s “The Followers” took the top spot yesterday (June 6) afternoon right after the two Maybach Music Group stars exchanged words via social media.
Wale took the opportunity to drop the track as the Twitterverse and the blogosphere went crazy over Meek’s series of tweets accusing The Gifted performer of not supporting his upcoming album Dreams Worth More Than Money.
For years now, the members of the rap quartet known as Black Hippy (Ab-Soul, Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q, and Jay Rock) have been questioned about the possibility of a studio album from the group. Black Hippy lyricist Ab-Soul was recently asked about the possibility of such a project during a newly-released interview with The Stashed.
Before vaguely addressing the likeliness of a Black Hippy album, Soulo revealed that Black Hippy was “creatively” designed to trap all of their audiences in one room.
A running joke in Hip Hop circles is that Erykah Badu has some unexplainable power to radically transform any emcee by just being involved with her. Common, one of Ms. Badu’s former boyfriends, addressed the mystery surrounding why men seem to emerge from a relationship with the singer-songwriter a changed man.
During an interview on the Combat Jack show, Common was asked about the “Badu Box” and the Chicago emcee gave credit to Erykah’s whole aura as a woman.
Wale has been revealed to be a bit different than Rick Ross and Meek Mill. Hours after Meek Mill took to his personal Twitter account defame Wale for not supporting Meek’s latest album news, Wale went to his personal Instagram account to respond to the allegations.
