At this point, your guess is as good as mine when and if Dirty Money’s Last Train To Paris will ever leave the station. Without a release date in sight, it seems odd that “Hello, Good Morning” would go to waste. You couldn’t walk two blocks without hearing that earlier this summer and “Loving You No More” with Drake seems like it’d a nice follow up for the fall.
There are two things about Diddy however. One, nothing will stop him from making money. Music, movies, fashion, liquor, you name it. If one venture isn’t clicking, he’s on to the next. (Keep reading…)Read More
Nicki Minaj is the latest celebrity to speak out on this week’s string ( reportedly seven cases) of gay teens committing suicide after being bullied about their sexuality. Ciara, Ellen DeGeneres and many more celebrities have used their platforms to encourage young gay Americans to see that their situation will get better. Nicki had these encouraging words to share about the situation:
“I could never imagine what they’re going through, but I know suicide is never the answer, and I know things always get better… I’m supporting you guys, I love you very very much, and for the people who don’t love you…they need help.”

Trying to figure out what actually happened to the Young Gunz has been a lost cause for me over the years. Granted, they had a mixtape drop with Cannon earlier this summer, but other than that, seeing Chris and Neef together kind of died out in ’05. However, Chris has been steadily putting out good music since then and is still an artist I believe can make waves if given the proper opportunity.
“Philly Sh*t” is exactly what it sounds like. Straight Philly sh*t. The lone Gunna puts on for “The City of Brotherly Love” with that effortless flow I’ve been a fan of since he was 16 flowing on Hot 97 with the rest of the ROC. This will obviously be a hit in the 215, but I could see this catching on in other markets if pushed properly.Read More
They locked the CEO up/Now they think I’m broke, huh?/Drizzy already told you niggas it’s far from over
About a month away from the release of his White Boyz mixtape with Birdman, Mack Maine teams up with Gorilla Zoe for the next leak from the project. Appropriately titled, the name of the record is “Young Mulah Baby” with a familiar voice on the sample. KE on the beat. Zoe is still using that sing-songy rap flow. Mack Maine’s back account is just fine, in case you were wondering.
That’s about all the preview you need.
