The Eagles Take the Long Road Out of Eden

The Eagles Take the Long Road Out of Eden

Just because it took them 13 years to deliver a studio sequel to their 1994 live album Hell Freezes Over, don’t say that it took the Eagles a long time to cash in on their reunion. They started cashing in almost immediately, driving up ticket prices into the stratosphere as they played gigs on a semi-regular basis well into the new millennium.

Fans were satisfied by the oldies and the band kept raking in the dough, so they could take their time making a new album. And did they ever take their time — the gap between 2007’s Long Road Out of Eden, their first album since 1979’s The Long Run, was nearly as long as that between their 1980 breakup and 1994 reunion...

Lil Wayne, the Leakingest Rapper in the Game

Lil Wayne, the Leakingest Rapper in the Game

Lil Wayne hasn’t released a major-label album in two years, an awful long time in today’s here-today, gone-tomorrow rap market, yet in that time he’s ascended to the top of his field, to the point where his next album, Tha Carter III, is among the industry’s most eagerly awaited. His stock has risen partly because of his innumerable guest features, but more so because of the steady stream of mixtapes he’s released — one after the other, month after month, none of them available at your local big-box retailer...

Jay-Z to Tour!

Jay-Z to Tour!

Jay-Z, that one-time retired now very much back-with-a-vengeance rapper who holds as arm candy that divalicious diva herself Beyonce Knowles formerly of Destiny’s Child before she broke free into a solo career, is going on tour and you had better believe that you are not going to want to miss out on seeing him perform live!

Highlights of this mega-brand performer’s touring schedule include gigs at such locales as the House of Blues in both West Hollywood, California on November 6 and in Chicago, Illinois on November 7 and Rams Head Live! in Baltimore, Maryland on November 9 as well as Hammerstein Ballroom in New York, New York on November 11, and the Fillmore – TLA in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on November 12.

Foxy’s Still Got It

Foxy Brown has landed herself in jail for a year. But that doesn’t mean that she doesn’t have the right to rock out.

The legally embattled rapper is dropping a new album entitled ‘Brooklyn’s Don Diva’ next month. It’s her first release since 2001’s ‘Broken Silence’. And the first single off of it is tight! You just have to love ‘Lights Go Out’. It has to be one of the hottest songs in hip hop right now and Foxy just kills it.

Too bad she can’t do any promotion for it. Maybe she can arrange a live satellite feed of her performing the song from jail.

Kid Rock Does an Avril

TMZ is reporting that a man named Maurice Foreman from Kentucky is claiming that it’s no coincidence that his song ‘Slow Death’ is similar to Kid Rock’s hit ‘So Hott’. Foreman sought Steppin’ Out’s Chaunce Hayden’s help in finding legal representation saying that he has copyright to his song written in 1997. Foreman says that Rock sings ‘so hot’ three times just like he sang ‘slow death’ three times and said that the lead guitar notes are identical.

Unfortunately, Foreman told Hayden that he’s “a poor guy who works in a factory so I don’t have a lot of money” which made it hard to find a lawyer. But if he does have a case, that’s money right there.

TREY SONGZ

Twenty-two-year-old Trey Songz is an underrated young R&B talent with lackluster first-album sales, despite an armful of quality singles. The launch single from his sophomore self-titled effort, “Can’t Help but Wait,” exposes his maturity and hunger to achieve the notoriety he deserves. With magnificent production from the European duo with soul, StarGate, and co-writing sorcery from Johnta Austin, Songz pours out his emotions for a woman that he is trying to convince to leave an abusive relationship—and if you pay close attention, there also are a couple of clues on how to give a lady the respect she deserves.

This time around, there should be no reason why Songz need “Wait” to find the level of fame he deserves...

Why Lil Wayne Flaked

Lil Wayne was a no show for a show at a high school in North Carolina a few nights ago. TMZ got an exclusive with Charles ‘Duke’ Lineberry Jr., the attorney for Mitchell Entertainment Group who promoted the concert in hopes to shed some light on why the rapper flaked.

The concert was promoted as a ‘Stop the Violence’ event and was set up because of 8 gang-related murders in the small community of Wilmington, North Carolina. Lil Wayne was the so-called headliner with ministers and local celebrities taking the stage to speak out against violence.

A crowd of around 3,000 was expected but only about 1,000 people showed up. There are multiple reasons for the small crowd which includes Lil Wayne’s recent legal troubles and that the rescheduling of the concert made people lose interest...

Britney Spears’ friends call for boycott of her new album

britney_spears-boycott-of-her-new-album.jpg

They would have to pay ME to buy that garbage. I’ve never spent one cent on Britney and I never will. She represents everything that is wrong with the music industry. Crappy music created by a corporation trying to make money off of teeny boppers. It worked for a while, but those days are over. This album is going to bomb horribly. She needs a year off. Leave the spotlight, spend time doing something that has nothing to do with the career. She can make her comeback after a year-long retirement. Leave LA, spend time with friends and family, and no more ‘handlers. ‘When she comes back, everyone will have missed her, she’ll enter a new phase of her career, and she’ll stop having to try so hard...

Jermaine Dupri Blasts Justin Timberlake

jermaine_dupri_justin.jpg

I think he’s talented, but whiny. He’s always going on and on how great he is…humble pie is going to taste mighty rough when it’s served up, as it always ends up being, at some point. He can dance, he can sing (marginally), he’s got some style…sure, it comes from a thousand r/b legends before him, but still…his biggest crime is he’s a punk ass about everything. Stop tooting yo’ own horn, just do your thing…stop acting like your the savior of music, cuz what your putting out is the thing right now, but remember, what you put out in the late nineties was the thing then, too. This too shall pass...
