Christina Milian Signs To Young Money, Lil Wayne Shades ‘The Throne’

Last night, Lil Wayne was in Los Angeles performing alongside Drake during the annual Cash Money Grammy Weekend Party. Lil Wayne went on to announce the latest addition to Young Money, Christina Milian. “I got the beautiful Christina Milian with me… Young Money Christina Milian.” Wayne went on to honor the memory of the late, Whitney Houston, who passed away prior to that event, by requesting a moment of silence. He then went on to throw some shade at Jay-Z and Kanye West (aka ‘The Throne’) by saying: “I met a red-bone, I took the girl home/I asked her what she wanna watch, she said, ‘surely not The Throne,” via XXL

Clive Davis: “Whitney Was A Beautiful Person And A Talent Beyond Compare”

Originally, Clive Davis‘ pre-Grammy celebration was called to a halt, but soon after that news surface the party as back on. Clive took to the stage at his annual event and ordered a moment of silence to honor his friend, Whitney Houston.

Clive Davis:Whitney was a beautiful person and a talent beyond compare. She graced this stage with her regal presence and gave so many memorable performances here over the years. Simply put, Whitney would have wanted the music to go on and her family asked that we carry on.”

The Cat Fights Continue, Basketball Wives 4 Trailer

VH1 is taking it back to the wives that started it all… The girl fights and drama continue, the trailer starts out with Jennifer and Evelyn going at it, Royce trying to go into acting. Including the introduction of two new wives, and ultimately to more smack downs. Word on the street is the show isn’t done taping, so I can only imagine what will go on between now and when they finish. This season is about to be way more violent. In my opinion, as grown women with children, standing on tables, fighting and acting a hot mess on national television is unbecoming. GROW UP. The trailer depicted Eveyln to be one of the serious culprits, in my opinion, being that she’s less than two seconds away from marrying Ocho Cinco, I suggest she shy away from the “beef scene”, lock her husband down and sit down. As for…

Photo Op: Azealia Banks For The Hundreds Magazine

It’s been a while since I’ve seen anything from The Hundreds that truly caught my attention, but despite the lack of brand pushes in a clothing manner, they have always stood behind great artists. In this months issue of The Hundreds Magazine, they’re featuring one of the lady’s of the moment, Azealia Banks. Definitely a dope shoot, makes me miss my purple hair, but love the stripes.

Alori Joh, TDE Vocalist, Passes Away At Age 25

It is with regret that I inform you TDE vocalist, Alori Joh, passed away today, at the age of 25. Alori was most known for her collaborations with fellow TDE artists: Kendrick Lamar (“Hiiii Power”) and ScHoolBoy Q (“Phenomenon”)… Although the cause of her death for now is unknown, her musical contribution will surely be missed. Take a listen to the last project she released (in November), Love Religion. Rest in power, Alori Joh.

J. Cole: “I Knew I Had To Put My Album Out Before The Grammy Deadline”

It’s one thing to know something, but it is another to act on your intuition. And that is what J. Cole did… During this brief spot with Associated Press, Jermaine talks about receiving accolades for work he did last year, and the years before, but that he hasn’t stopped working, and that he’s currently working on what will come next. He even goes on to divulge that the release of his album was strategic; he made sure he made the Grammy deadline because he felt his nomination was coming. Hip-hop is winning.
