#StraightOuttaCompton Trailer + NEW MUSIC from Kendrick Lamar

nwa

What a good day to be from LA.

Last night, Compton native Kendrick Lamar won two Grammy awards for Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance for his hit single, “I.” Well deserved. Listen to his latest track he released today, “The Blacker the Berry.”

Plus, the trailer to the “Straight Outta Compton” biopic about the West Coast hip hop group, NWA, was released today. I can’t wait to see the film! I don’t think NWA was dangerous; I think the group was misunderstood. They actually brought up a lot of social issues and wanted change in South Central LA. “Our art is a reflection of our reality.” Watch below.

[WATCH] #ThrowbackThursday: Crush On You

Lil Kim isn’t playing ANY games this week! Over the weekend, Beyoncé released her “Flawless” remix featuring Nicki Minaj in which the rapper says she’s the “Queen of Rap.” Of course Lil’ Kim wasn’t feeling that. So Lil Kim made her own Flawless remix and rhymed, “Am I tripping or did this ho just say my name. Queen of Rap? F-ck outta here, The queen’s back” Ouch. But it didn’t stop there. Last night Lil’ Kim released a new diss record titled, “Identity Theft.”

Well, in the midst of all of this beef, I decided to dedicate this throwback music post to Queen Bee (Lil Kim’ in case you are confused). Below is the video to her 1996 single, “Crush on You.”  This is back when women AND men performed dance steps in videos. Back when Lil’ Kim rocked different color wigs. The track features Junior M.A.F.I.A. members, Lil’ Cease and the Notorious B.I.G.; the video features cameos from Luke and Aaliyah.

What do you think about the beef between Lil Kim and Nicki Minaj? Did Nicki take Kim’s style?

Entertainment Scoop of the Week: Jamie Foxx, Alicia Keys, Bey & Jay + MORE!

Entertainment Scoop 1So in case you missed my radio show…wait, you didn’t know I was on-air? Yeeeah!

Look, I’ve been on Hot HD-2, All My Jamz: “Today’s R&B and the Best Old School” since April, but it’s digital meaning, you have to own a HD receiver to hear my show. I know, I know. So, I air a lot of great music and also discuss some celebrity gossip, which brings me here. I’m going to recap some of the biggest celebrity stories of the week just in case you can’t hear me air it live 🙂

Entertainment Scoop of the Week:

Beyoncé was spotted apartment hunting in New York WITHOUT Jay-Z. So here’s my thing: So what! Maybe she had time to search for a place and will let Jay-Z take a look at her final choices. Maybe she’s looking for a place where she can get away when she wants alone time…like a woman cave? (Although men caves are normally in the same home lol). I just think people are speculating so much since the elevator incident. So now there are divorce rumors floating around. I think it’s funny how Bey and Jay always try to hush the rumors by putting super mushy photos on Instagram after the “fake” stories start spreading. But let them live.

There’s a bench warrant issued for Columbus Short since the actor was a no show in criminal court for a hearing in his domestic violence case. Sigh. I thought Short was such a sweet man! He had me fooled in Stomp the Yard!!! I wanted to go to a HBCU just so I can have a man “step” into my life like he did with Meagan Good. Ah well. Short ruined that fantasy! lol… BUT, in reality, he has to get it together. This isn’t looking good for him at all.

Nicki Minaj caused a little uproar with her Anaconda photo, and the owner of AllHipHop wrote an open letter to her since he has a daughter. He says she’s “a leader now.” He sounds SO concerned…ahem. Read my response to him here.

Alicia Keys is pregnant with baby number two!! She wrote on Instagram: Happy Anniversary to the love of my life @therealswizzz!! And to make it even sweeter we’ve been blessed with another angel on the way!!” Keys, wrote on Instagram Thursday. “You make me happier than I have ever known! Here’s to many many more years of the best parts of life!” Swizz Beatz showed his excitement over the news “Love is life & life is love and we’re so excited for another GIFT from above,” he wrote on Instagram. “Happy Anniversary my Goddess. 4 years of greatness & cheers to 100 plus more inshallah.” The couple has a 3-year-old Egypt. So cute!

Jamie Foxx will play the role of Mike Tyson in an upcoming biopic about the boxer’s life. Foxx won an Oscar for his 2004 portrayal of Ray Charles, so let’s cross our fingers that he can take home some awards for this film as well!

Trey Songz and Chris Brown posted a photo of them in a club with Kendall and Kylie Jenner. Ummm, these girls are teenagers and the R&B crooners are in their twenties. That’s not a good look. When I was 16 I could not go out with any fine, mid-20something-year-old men. I’m sure they were all on their best behavior though……………..

Sherri Shepherd is no long on The View, but she will star in the Ride Along sequel which stars Ice Cube and Kevin Hart! Way to bounce back, girl!

That’s the scoop! Let me know your opinion about the topics below! Don’t forget, I’m on-air Monday-Friday from 9p-11p on Hot-HD2!

#ThrowbackThursday Rakim: Paid in Full

eric and rakimThe Nokia Theater in Los Angeles was packed last week as hip hop pioneers, Rakim, DMX, Naughty by Nature, Slick Rick, EPMD, Big Daddy Kane, Biz Markie and Special Ed took the stage at The Masters of Ceremonies Hip Hop Reunion concert.  I was there to see Rakim and he put on a dope show! All he had to say was “Thinking of a master plan…” and wave his mic towards the audience and let them finish the rest of the rhymes to  his 1987 classic, “Paid in Full.” Listen to this throwback track below.

#ThrowbackThursday: I Got a Man

positive kPositive K released his only Top 40 hip hop single, “I Got a Man” in 1992 from his debut album The Skills Dat Pay Da Bills. Little known fact, Positive K  raised the pitch of his voice with studio technology so that he could do the female vocals along with his male vocals.

The song has a comedic element as a lady continues to reject Positive K, but he’s so persistent that he doesn’t care if she says she “got a man.” I’m sure many women can relate to this song as most of us go through this scenario on a daily basis.  Fellas, if a woman says she’s in a relationship then respect it and keep stepping. Or, your conversation will sound similar to this song! Take a listen to today’s throwback, but please don’t be this guy!
