TYGA new single " REAL DEAL "

YMCMB rep Tyga has put in his fair share of work in recent years, but it has really gone overlooked.  With appearances on recent hits like “Loyal” and “Senile”, Tyga is staying in front of audiences and capitalizing on his opportunities, however, the 24-year old rapper keeps finding himself in the shadows of his Young Money label mates.  The Cali native is on tap to release his fourth studio album (yes, fourth album) and the respect that Tyga is seeking may be right around the corner.  

Tyga’s upcoming album is entitled The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty and Yeezus himself will be the executive producer.  Yes, Kanye West will be the executive producer of Tyga’s next album scheduled to release later this year.  With that being said, Tyga’s upcoming project should definitely be something of value.  Kanye may be the missing link to take Tyga to heights in the rap game that he has yet to see.  

Now with expectation levels higher than usual, Tyga drops his latest single “Real Deal”. This track may not be the official lead single from his upcoming album, but it is definitely an indication of what to expect from Tyga in the near future. Is Tyga finally going to get his due respect?  Check out the “Real Deal” song and let us know whether you are going to “Pump It or Dump It”.

sad-news-legendary-author-dr-maya-angelou-passed-away-today-home

Reported by NYTimes/Margarlit Fox

Maya Angelou, the memoirist and poet whose landmark book of 1969, “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings” — which describes in lyrical, unsparing prose her childhood in the Jim Crow South — was among the first autobiographies by a 20th-century black woman to reach a wide general readership, died on Wednesday in her home. She was 86 and lived in Winston-Salem, N.C.

Her death was confirmed by her longtime literary agent, Helen Brann. No immediate cause of death had been determined, but Ms. Brann said Ms. Angelou had been in frail health for some time and had heart problems.

As well-known as she was for her memoirs, which eventually filled six volumes, Ms. Angelou very likely received her widest exposure on a chilly January day in 1993, when she delivered the inaugural poem, “On the Pulse of Morning,” at the swearing-in of Bill Clinton, the nation’s 42nd president, who, like Ms. Angelou, had grown up poor in rural Arkansas.

It began:

A Rock, A River, A Tree

Hosts to species long since departed,

Marked the mastodon,

The dinosaur, who left dried tokens

Of their sojourn here

On our planet floor,

Any broad alarm of their hastening doom

Is lost in the gloom of dust and ages.

But today, the Rock cries out to us, clearly, forcefully,

Come, you may stand upon my

Back and face your distant destiny,

But seek no haven in my shadow,

I will give you no hiding place down here.

Long before that day, as she recounted in “Caged Bird” and its five sequels, she had already been a dancer, calypso singer, streetcar conductor, single mother, magazine editor in Cairo, administrative assistant in Ghana, official of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference and friend or associate of some of the most eminent black Americans of the mid-20th century, including James Baldwin, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X.

Afterward (her six-volume memoir takes her only to the age of 40), Ms. Angelou (pronounced AHN-zhe-lo) was a Tony-nominated stage actress; college professor (she was for many years the Reynolds professor of American studies at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem); ubiquitous presence on the lecture circuit; frequent guest on television shows, from “Oprah” to “Sesame Street”; and subject of a string of scholarly studies.

In February 2011, President Obama presented her with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the country’s highest civilian honor.

Throughout her writing, Ms. Angelou explored the concepts of personal identity and resilience through the multifaceted lens of race, sex, family, community and the collective past. As a whole, her work offered a cleareyed examination of the ways in which the socially marginalizing forces of racism and sexism played out at the level of the individual.

“If growing up is painful for the Southern Black girl, being aware of her displacement is the rust on the razor that threatens the throat,” Ms. Angelou wrote in “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings.”

Hallmarks of Ms. Angelou’s prose style included a directness of voice that recalls African-American oral tradition and gives her work the quality of testimony. She was also intimately concerned with sensation, describing the world around her — be it Arkansas, San Francisco or the foreign cities in which she lived — with palpable feeling for its sights, sounds and smells.

“I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings,” published when Ms. Angelou was in her early 40s, spans only her first 17 years. But what powerfully formative years they were.

Marguerite Ann Johnson was born in St. Louis on April 4, 1928. (For years after Dr. King’s assassination, on April 4, 1968, Ms. Angelou did not celebrate her birthday.) Her dashing, defeated father, Bailey Johnson Sr., a Navy dietitian, “was a lonely person, searching relentlessly in bottles, under women’s skirts, in church work and lofty job titles for his ‘personal niche,’ lost before birth and unrecovered since,” Ms. Angelou wrote. “How maddening it was to have been born in a cotton field with aspirations of grandeur.”

Her beautiful, volatile mother, Vivian Baxter, was variously a nurse, hotel owner and card dealer. As a girl, Ms. Angelou was known as Rita, Ritie or Maya, her older brother’s childhood nickname for her.

After her parents’ marriage ended, 3-year-old Maya was sent with her 4-year-old brother, Bailey, to live with their father’s mother in the tiny town of Stamps, Ark., which, she later wrote, “with its dust and hate and narrowness was as South as it was possible to get.”

Their grandmother, Annie Henderson, owned a general store “in the heart of the Negro area,” Ms. Angelou wrote. An upright woman known as Momma, “with her solid air packed around her like cotton,” she is a warm, stabilizing presence throughout “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings.”

The children returned periodically to St. Louis to live with their mother. On one such occasion, when Maya was 7 or 8 (her age varies slightly across her memoirs, which employ the techniques of fiction to recount actual events), she was raped by her mother’s boyfriend.

She told her brother, who alerted the family, and the man was tried and convicted. Before he could begin serving his sentence, he was murdered — probably, Ms. Angelou wrote, by her uncles.

Believing that her words had brought about the death, Maya did not speak for the next five years. Her love of literature, as she later wrote, helped restore language to her.

As a teenager, now living with her mother in San Francisco, she studied dance and drama at the California Labor School and became the first black woman to work as a streetcar conductor there. At 16, after a casual liaison with a neighborhood youth, she became pregnant and gave birth to a son. There the first book ends.

Reviewing “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings” in The New York Times,Christopher Lehmann-Haupt called it “a carefully wrought, simultaneously touching and comic memoir.”

The book — its title is a line from “Sympathy,” by the African-American poetPaul Laurence Dunbar — became a best seller, confounding the pervasive stereotype that black women’s lives were unworthy of memoir.

Our deepest condolences are with her entire family and friends.

Breaking: Rapper TI and Boxer Floyd Mayweather Comes to Blow


Yep, we couldn’t believe it either but apparently Floyd Mayweather allegedly said some harsh words directed at Tameka “Tiny” Harris and her husband rapper TI jumped into action. Our sources stated that once Floyd said “control your bitch” the rapper/actor attempted to two-piece the boxer (delivering a punch to the face). The restaurant looked like a scene from Basketball Wives as chairs were thrown and weaves were falling all over the place. We have now been told that Tiny was scene at a club with the boxer and once the rapper got wind of it…things went downhill. The two later saw each other at a local Fatburger Restaurant and the rapper asked him about it. Floyd Mayweather has had a difficult time with rappers lately since his ex-girlfriend Shantel Jackson ran off with rapper Nelly which might have been his motivation for trying to upstage Hip Hop’s King of the South.

Department of Child and Family Services Investigating Will and Jada Over Willow Pic

Weeks ago, Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith’s daughter Willow who is thirteen was seen in a photo laying in a bed with a shirtless 20-year-old actor, Moises Arias.  The photo has caused quite a stir and Will and Jada have received tons of criticism questioning their parenting skills.  While Will has not come forward with any comments, his wife Jada has stated that it is not a big deal.  However, some do feel that it is a big deal, including the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services.

Screen Shot 2014-05-21 at 11.44.33 AM

According to sources, the department has officially opened an investigation into the Smith family.  

“The investigation was formally opened last week and is being taken very seriously by the department,” an insider told Radar Online. “Will and Jada Pinkett Smith have been extremely cooperative with officials. Of course, they aren’t happy that their parenting skills are under scrutiny, but they understand.” 

On a side note, did you know that yesterday was exactly 18 years since the last episode of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air aired?  Let that sink in for a moment.  I wonder how Uncle Phil and Aunt Viv would have handled this situation.

Mariah is back and sexier than ever

Mariah Carey has cemented herself as an R&B diva years ago.  With Mariah spending a record 79 weeks at the number one position on the Hot 100 and becoming the artist with the most weeks at number one in US history, she really has nothing left to prove.  Unfortunately for Mimi (not to be confused with the Mimi that was hanging from that shower rod), her last few albums didn’t do as well as expected.

Now Mariah is back to remind listeners that this chick is not going anywhere, but back on the charts.  Her lead single with Wale, “You Don’t know What To Do,” is close to being a summer anthem and is the perfect piece of evidence that Mariah still has it going on.  Today, fans can stream and listen to the Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse album in its entirety a week before it releases by clicking here.

Trinidad James – “Def Jam” [New Video]

Months ago Trinidad James made hip hop news for his opinionated words about the New York rap scene.  At that time it was questioned whether or not James’ words would impact his standing in the New York area and hip hop as a whole.  Well, Trinidad James is back to let all the naysayers know that being a “real ni@@a” is what got him a deal as he walks the streets of Brooklyn, New York in his newest video.

In James’ latest video entitled “Def Jam” you can catch him and his squad deep in New York like its nothing.  The track provides a tough bass line and the visual adds authenticity to James’ lyrics.  Check the “Def Jam” video out and let us know whether you are going to “Pump it or Dump it”.

ray-j-gift-sex-tape-proceeds-kanye-kim-wedding

In 2008 Ray J produced one of the year’s biggest flicks.  This film was not shown in theaters or even given a big budget for promotion, but its impact can still be seen.  Years later this flick is still a big seller and profits are still being made.  The film I am speaking of is Vivid Entertainment’s Ray J and Kim Kardashian sex tape.  Six years after the film was released it still raked in over $46,000 this year.  

KK

Ray J’s co-star in the sex tape, Kim Kardashian, is all set to walk down the aisle with her soon to be husband Kanye West this week and Ray J has the perfect wedding gift for them.  Ray J plans on gifting the couple a check for $47,000.  Hmmmm…the same amount he has accumulated this year from his sex tape with Kim Kardashian.  Not sure how that will go over in the West household, but I guess Ray J is just sending a friendly reminder to Kanye that his “trophy” was once on Ray J’s mantle.  Remember folks, Ray J hit it first.

[NEWS] Twitter reportedly in talks to buy SoundCloud


Twitter may be in talks to purchase SoundCloud, a large service that is known by some as YouTube for audio.

According to Recode, Twitter is "considering a deal" to buy the Berlin-based company, which lets anyone, from individuals to DJ collectives to bands, upload and share audio clips.

If true, the acquisition would be a very big move for Twitter, which has seen its stock battered over the last few months as investors worry that it is not growing fast enough. After going public last November at $26 a share, it quickly rose to $74.73 before beginning a long downward slide. As of this writing, the company's shares are at $32.36.

screen-shot-2014-05-19-at-11-45-00-am.png

There are two obvious reasons Twitter might want to buy a company like the privately held SoundCloud. First is Twitter's longstanding desire to get closer to the music industry. Its attempts so far, most notably with its own #Music app, have largely been unsuccessful. Second, SoundCloud is said to have 250 million users around the world, which could be a boon to Twitter as the social-networking company seeks to boost its growth.

Both Twitter and SoundCloud declined to comment, saying they don't address rumors.

If Twitter were to buy SoundCloud, it would almost certainly be a very expensive acquisition. Last year, SoundCloud raised a $60 million round of funding that valued it at $700 million. To date, Twitter's most expensive purchase has been ad network MoPub, for which it paid about $350 million.

For SoundCloud, being part of Twitter could be appealing because of Twitter's success at selling ads. As Recode wrote, SoundCloud already offers its users a paid premium service, with additional features, but it doesn't have much in the way of an ads operation.

To some industry observers, Twitter buying SoundCloud would make sense for both companies. "A deal like this makes sense for Twitter, [because] it gives them a much needed push into media and adds into their business another really interesting and popular publishing platform," said Gartner analyst Brian Blau. "If SoundCloud can get a favorable music licensing deal to make right how their users get access to published songs, then we could see that music become even more deeply embedded into Twitter apps."

Billboard Music Awards’ Michael Jackson Hologram Producers Facing Lawsuit

Michael-Jackson-Hologram

There was much hype around the debut of the Michael Jackson hologram at last night’s 2014 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas.  Some of the hype was due to an injunction made by Hologram USA.  Despite the request, the show went on.  What many people didn’t know is that there was much more going on behind the curtain of this year’s Billboard Music Awards than there actually was on stage.

Even though the controversial holographic representation of Michael Jackson performed despite the request.  Nevada court Judge Nancy J. Knoppe ordered  last minute emergency access and lawyers from  both sides entered the backstage area of MGM with court videographers.

According to sources the technology used for the Jackson hologram was indeed that owned by Alki David‘s Hologram USA and Musion Das Hologram, which directly contradicts Pulse Entertainment CEO John Textor’s claim to the court that it was not using the same technology.

To make matters worse, upon gaining access to the backstage it was discovered that James Rock, an ex-employee of Musion Das Hologram, was backstage working on the Michael Jackson hologram, despite the fact that Textor told the court Rock was not involved, and was not even in Las Vegas.

At that time, Textor went berserk and began to scream.  Accounts from those on the scene told TV Mix that Textor screamed, “Get the f*ck out!”

Hologram USA’s attorney issued a statement:

“Pursuant to a court order issued Sunday afternoon, Hologram USA was able to inspect the equipment used by Defendants to produce the Michael Jackson hologram,” said Hologram USA’s attorney Ryan G. Baker of Baker Marquart. “Based on that inspection, which Defendants had earlier refused to permit, it is apparent that Defendants have infringed Plaintiffs’ patents. Plaintiffs will continue to take discovery to bring Defendants’ misdeeds out of the shadows and into the light.”

Legal experts say that the evidence of perjury may increase the awards made to Hologram USA by as much as three times and that the defendants are liable to criminal charges.  The lawsuit was filed days ago against  Textor and his Pulse Entertainment along with Prometheus Global Media, which owns Billboard, Dick Clark Productions and the Michael Jackson Estate.

Justin Timberlake said it was always a dream to make a song with Michael Jackson

.

David Wolff-Patrick/Redferns via G

Now, not only is their song "Love Never Felt So Good" a reality, but so is a music video.

Four minutes long, the video is an obvious homage to Jackson, who died in 2009, complete with clips from his past music videos and dancers’ imitating his dance moves.

How Justin Timberlake Missed His Chance to Record With Michael Jackson

"Love Never Felt So Good" is part of the album "Xscape," featuring Jackson’s singing along with some of the biggest singers today, including Timberlake and Mary J. Blige.

"Even when Michael was alive, we never stopped working on the song 'Xscape,'"producer Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins said. "It was one of those songs where he specifically said to me, 'It has to see the light of day one day.'"

Jerkins said fans will be happy with the result. "Everyone did a really great job on this project," he said.

Breaking News: Gucci Mane Pleads Guilty To Weapons Possession And Faces 39 Months in Breaking-news-gucci-mane-pleads-guilty-to-weapons-possession-and-faces-39-months-in-federal-prison


Reporting from Dennis Byron live at the federal courthouse.

A hearing was held at 11 am this morning where rapper Gucci Mane plead guilty to possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.  At the time of his arrest, he was carrying a loaded 40 Glock firearm with 11 rounds of ammunition. Gucci will be sentenced to 39 months in prison and 3 years on probation. He will receive credit for the 10 months he has already spent in federal custody.

During Radric Davis professionally known as Gucci Mane plea agreement today, he stated to the judged when asked what level of education did he complete, he stated that he finished 1 year of college. Federal District court judge Steve C. Jones also asked him did he fully understand what he was pleading guilty to and he responded affirmatively. After the hearing, HHE spoke exclusively with his attorney Drew Findling who stated the following:

“My client is finally taking control of his life and taking responsibility for his actions.” When we asked attorney Findley, whether he had concerns about his other pending state cases, he said those will eventually be worked out as well.

US attorney Sally Yates released the following statement after Davis plea agreement:

On Sept. 14, 2013, the Atlanta Police Department received a call from a concerned citizen, who told police that Davis was acting violent and had a handgun.   Police found the defendant on the street, smelling strongly of marijuana, with a Glock, 40 cal. handgun loaded with 11 rounds of ammunition in his possession.  When police arrived, Davis was waving the handgun and making threatening comments.  

Gucci Mane is also facing a maximum fine of 250k when he is sentenced on July 25th.  He was represented by famed attorney Drew Findling and attorney Capek.

 Assistant United States Attorney Kim S. Dammers is prosecuting the case.
