Drake And Rihanna Drake And Rihanna

When it comes to the relationship between Drake and Rihanna, you can get some clues from Drake’s new song entitled ‘Days In The East.’  After releasing “Draft Day” which contains some lines intended for Jay Z, Drake is now doing a slow jam music which is inspired by Rihanna.  In the song, “Days In The East,” Drake talks about his life and additionally his pursuit of a certain girl.  In the song, he also describes his current relationship with Rihanna. Drake sings:

“Told you about giving him chances on chances on chances

He’s not holding you down, he’s holding you back right now”

He also added:

“Take a flight here, pop a Xan [Xanax] for the boy

Waking up in Amsterdam with the boy

Long flight home, another Xan [Xanax] for your boy

You would probably fly out to Japan for the boy

You would probably kill another man for the boy”

He also sings:

“Before you said you’re mine, I was yours already

22, had the Bentley 4-door already

Even as a boy I was the boy already

So you know that mean the p-ssy galore already

Mention other girls, you get insecure already

That was in the past, I’ve matured already

F-ck them hoes, you got the award already

You go to Chanel and get rewards already”

After finishing his tour, Drake is now responding to Jay Z’s shade.  A few weeks ago, Jay made some comments on Drake in the song, “We Made It.”  Despite the fact that Drake is busy cuddling with Rihanna, he still heard what Jay Z was saying about him.  Drake has a new song entitled “Draft Day” and he uses this song to respond to Jay Z’z shade.  Here are some of the lines of the song:

“I’m focused on makin’ records and gettin’ bigger

Just hits, no misses (Mrs.), that’s for the married folk”

Drake further added:

“Tell ‘em fix my suite up cause I’m comin’ home

I heard he talkin’ crazy, I was out of town

You know they love to pop all that sh-t when I’m not around

But when I’m here, not a sound

That’ll make me snap, jot it down

Go in the booth and lay a body down”

However, it seems as though Drake also offered some apology saying:

Jay Z Jay Z

“I think I’m on my eighth flow, just watch me paint flow

We all do it for the art so I can never hate though”

Jay Electronica recently released a freestyle version of “We Made it,” which featured rapper Jay Z.  It’s quite obvious that he includes some disses and addressed them in the song.  During Drake’s interview with Rolling Stone, he revealed that he is interested in art and chatted about Jay Z:  He said:

“It’s like Hov can’t drop bars these days without at least four art references. I would love to collect [art] at some point, but I think the whole Rap/art world thing is getting kind of corny.”

Jay responded by rapping in freestyle:

“Sorry Mr. Drizzy for so much art talk

Silly me, rappin’ ’bout sh-t that I really bought

While these rappers rap about guns that they ain’t shot

And a bunch of other silly sh-t that they ain’t got”

He also shouts out to Lupita Nyong’o:

Lupita Nyong’o Lupita Nyong’o

“I’m on my Lupita Nyong’o

Stuntin’ on stage after 12 Years A Slave

This Ace of Spades look like an Oscar

Black tux, look like a mobster”

Roc-A-Fella’s Amil Roc-A-Fella’s Amil

The last time that we have heard from Amil was back in the early 2000.  She was part of Jay Z’s songs such as “Can I Get A…” and also with Beyoncé’s “I Got That!”  Since then we haven’t heard much about her until recently.  It seems that she is trying to make a comeback!

This week, the singer just released a new record entitled, “Remember.”  During an interview, Amil explained where she had been and why she decided to got out of the rap game.  She said:

“I wasn’t there mentally. I was in my own world. Was I prepared? No. Did I realize what was happening right before my eyes? No.”

“I started to rebel. I rebelled against the industry because it’s not what I wanted. I hated traveling. I wasn’t at after parties or the club. Also, at the time my son’s asthma, [who was] 5 [or] 6-years-old at the time, was getting worse and no one was there for him. I had to be there for him.”

“I didn’t think about the legalities of a lot of things. I never cared about the contracts. I could have been signing my life away… I was not a business woman at that time. I didn’t have a manager or the things that most artists have. I didn’t put my all into it. I didn’t give 100% of myself. I felt like it just wasn’t for me. That’s when I started rebelling. I started rebelling because I wanted out. It was easier for me to slip away. I faded myself. No one faded me. And, that’s when everything seemed to go left.”

Have you already heard Amil’s latest record?

Jay z and Kanye Jay z and Kanye

According to reports, Jay Z allegedly refuses to be the best man of Kanye West on his wedding day due to the fact that it will be filmed on Reality TV.  Sources revealed that Kanye requested Jay Z to be his best man but the Roc Nation media mogul refused since he does now want his family to appear on reality TV.

Based on several reports, Kim and Kanye’s wedding will occur in May and most probably it will be filmed for E!’s Keeping Up With the Kardashians.  Most likely Kim will be receiving a huge amount if her wedding day will be shown on TV.

The source said:

“Jay is Kanye’s closest friend so he wants him to be best man. Jay agreed initially but had one condition – under no circumstances can there be any reality TV shows filming him, his wife Beyoncé or daughter Blue Ivy during the ceremony.”

The source further added that Beyoncé is not interested to appear on reality TV:

“The thought of popping up in KUWTK mortifies Beyoncé. She purposefully keeps herself away from trashy TV and isn’t prepared to lower her standards for anyone, or any occasion.”

Should Mr. and Mrs. Carter get themselves involved in Kanye and Kim’s wedding?

50 Cent And Steve Stoute 50 Cent And Steve Stoute

During the Knicks game last Friday, 50 Cent was spotted confronting Steve Stoute.  This is due to the comments made by Steve during his interview with Hot 97′s Angie Martinez.  Steve was asked about the most influential rappers and he mentioned Dr. Dre, Jay Z, Diddy as well as Kanye West but he did not include 50 Cent.

When asked why 50 Cent was not included in the list, Steve replied:

“He hasn’t had a hit in a really long time. He has not made anything musically that’s changed in a very long time. I feel like he’s always gearing up for something that never happens. Hopefully, now that he’s independent and there’s no record company to blame, his aggressive content will get on the air.”

But Angie was attempting to create a case for 50 by mentioning his business ventures and other deals.  Steve commented by saying:

“I think that he’s trying to get back. But those guys… music is a great platform. If you’re an entrepreneur, you have… you’re currently active making music, you’re currently active touching people with albums, it makes it much easier to venture into business deals that will become successful using the music to parlay to get it done. And without having music that’s meaningful over the last, probably the last great song he’s made was “I Get Money”? Right? You know how long ago…? Kanye’s put out three albums, four albums since then.”

Angie immediately warned Steve that 50 Cent might include him in his song and Steve quickly responded:

“Great! Hopefully IT GETS on the radio!”

“Partition” is one of the songs of Beyoncé which is quite erotic and it shows in the official video for the song.  According to “Baddie Bey” it was inspired by her visit to the Crazy Horse Burlesque show in Paris.  It happened on the night that her husband, Jay Z, proposed to her.  It was also the day that Jay Z celebrated his birthday.  Bey explained more about the video on the behind-the-scenes, she said:

“Just because I’m a mother doesn’t mean you lose who you are.”

Beyonce Beyonce

“There’s songs like “Partition” and I’m in the studio and I hear this beat and I hear this baseline and it has snaps and it’s like, two tracks. Very simple. It reminds me of like Too $hort or E-40. It takes me back to being in my car [as a] teenager and it takes me back to when me and my husband first met. He’s trying to scoop me and he thinks I’m the hottest thing in the world. I kinda had this whole fantasy of being in the car and this whole movie played in my head. I didn’t have a pen and paper, I just got to the mic. I’m like “Oh, press record.”

The day that I got engaged was my husband’s birthday and I took him to Crazy Horse and I remember thinking, ‘Damn, these girls are fly.’ I just thought it was the ultimate sexy show I’ve ever seen. I was like, ‘I wish I was up there. I wish I could perform that for my man.’ So that’s what I did for the video.”

It has been 15 years since Jay Z joined the music industry as a rapper.  Now, he is not only a great artist but he is also a wonderful father as well as an amazing husband to his talented and beautiful wife Beyonce.  Last Sunday, Beyonce performed a sexy number during the Grammys.  Later on, Jay Z moved closer and kissed Bey in front of the audience.  Jay Z was grateful for the award that he won and he thanked God not necessarily because of the award but because of the woman in his life.  He said:

“I want to thank God, I mean a little bit for this award, but mostly for that and all the universes for conspiring and putting that beautiful light of a young woman in my life.”

However, a particular writer of The New York Post calls Jay Z as “a poor excuse for a husband.”  In her article, she wrote:

“What do you call a man who stands there smiling and singing as his scantily clad wife straddles a chair and shakes her rear end for other men’s titillation?”

“I’m certain if I look through enough Jay Z song titles, I’ll come up with the right name for his role in Beyoncé’s performance at the Grammy Awards Sunday night. Rhymes with Goodyear. . . ? Well, how about I just call him a poor excuse for a husband.”

She further added:

“It wasn’t surprising to see Jay Z, looking pleased at his wife’s hyper-sexualized exhibition on stage.” After all, “he’s made a living singing lyrics that call women ‘bitches’ and ‘hos,’ so we shouldn’t be surprised that he objectified his own wife on stage.”

“The sophisticates will say that what we saw Sunday were just the long-established stage personas of Beyoncé and Jay Z; why should their marriage change that?”

The article ended with a good question:

“Beyoncé had a career before she got married–should marriage change the way she performs?”

What are can you say about Bey’s performance?

Although, it is not yet confirmed who will be opening the show but based on the recent success of Bey’s album, she will probably do the opening number.

According to “Kontrol Magazine”:

“Rumor has it that the King and Queen of music are set to open up the Grammy’s this year on Sunday January 26th. That’s right; a little birdie told Kontrol Magazine EXCLUSIVELY that the Grammy organization and The Staples Center are working hard to keep a tight lid on Jay-Z and Beyonce’s huge opening surprise.”

Will Beyonce be the one who will open the show?
