Jay-Z soon to be unstoppable:

The rapper is apparently negotiating a deal with WMG/Atlantic about making his own record label. Supposedly this deal will make him virtually unstoppable. A source said the following about Jay-Z’s expansion plans: “Jay’s deal with Live Nation is massive. But if he were to cut a deal with WMG/Atlantic, he’d make even more headlines. Jay-Z, Lyor Cohen and Kevin Liles are all brand names. They’re the industry’s heavy hitters, and the combination would bring them a lot of attention. They would be unstoppable. Jay himself is the most successful rapper-turned-businessman out there.” Maybe this is why so many have not been able to perform lately… Jay-Z probably hired some voodoo people to put a halt to their activities while he makes his big break...

Chris Brown Ain’t a Monster

After three months of laying low, Chris Brown has finally come out to speak. In a video shot by Bow Wow at Shaquille O’Neal’s house, the R&B singer said “I just wanna say ‘what’s up?’ because I ain’t been out there in a minute. But the new album is gonna be coming soon. We working on it right now. It’s called ‘Graffiti’. It’s got everything on it, so y’all be ready for that… Everybody that’s haters, they just been haters. All my real fans, I love you all. I ain’t a monster.” I wonder what he was doing at Shaq’s house.

Beyonce suffered through ‘bruises, blood and exhaustion’ filming new movie

Beyonce has revealed she had to laugh through the pain while filming the brutal scenes for new movie Obsessed.

The 27-year-old singer stars in the flick with Heroes star Ali Larter, and the pair are involved in a fight.

She said: “The fight was so much fun, being able to let out all my aggression. But it was difficult, very physical and draining, too. We were bruised and they did close-ups of me punching a wall and banging my head against it. We had to laugh to keep from crying, but it was worth the bruises, blood and exhaustion.”

In the film Beyonce plays a woman whose husband is stalked by a co-worker and the pair end up having a huge fight.

New Flo-Rida Music Video

Flo Rida has a new music video out for his song ‘Sugar’. The song features R&B singer Wynter Gordon and is the third single from the rapper’s sophomore album ‘R.O.O.T.S.’ The song’s chorus samples from Eiffel 65’s dance pop song ‘Blue (Da Ba Dee)’. The video shows a female doctor putting Flo Rida to sleep, causing him to fantasize about a girl he likes. It’s obviously not the most interesting of video concepts but I have to admit that the song is still fire! Flo Rida’s the kind of rapper who you label as a joke or a one hit wonder at first but then suddenly grows on you even though you think he still has his stupid moments.

Lady Sovereign Bails Again

Last weekend, Lady Sovereign was being a drunk mess and bailed on a performance in Seattle after only one song. When she headed to San Francisco, the British rapper didn’t fair any better. The train wreck came out to a packed crowd and immediately started throwing a fit about sound quality – the same reason she gave when she bailed in Seattle. She then began to insult the venue and stormed off after only 3 songs. At least that’s more than what Seattle got. I bet everything I have that she was wasted for that show again. I’m pretty sure that her show in Los Angeles which happened earlier this week was a similar case.

Jay-Z Leaves Def Jam

It’s official – Jay-Z has left his long time label, Def Jam Records. The rapper confirmed the news that he’s left the record company which he’s been so involved with for the past several years. Jay-Z says that his time at Def Jam has been “a unique and fulfilling experience.” The rapper did not give the real reason as to why he chose to leave though. However, Jay-Z still owes Def Jam one more record. You better be expecting a “Best Of” CD to be coming out soon under Jay-Z’s name. It will probably have some previously unreleased tracks on there but unlikely to have something new from the rapper.

Queen Latifah’s New Music

Queen Latifah is about to release some new music soon. The rapper has actually released her first new single and has also performed it on American Idol. Surprisingly enough, there’s no rap! Not only is Latifah just straight-up singing on her new song, but the song also has a definite rock vibe. The song is called ‘Cue the Rain’ and I think it’s an amazing song for her. Congratulations to her for making a smooth crossover to a different genre! I can’t wait to hear more of her new sound! I wonder when her new album is going to get released.
