For the entire month of February, FUSE has given Jim Jones his own On Demand channel. Here’s one of the promo clips of him giving free New York City taxi cab rides. If all goes well, Capo could possibly land his own show on the network.
Earlier this morning I got a call from one of my guys in Minnesota saying Gudda Gudda got his chained snatched. To protect the innocent I won’t use his name but he is a reputable source. This is what he told me:
Last night, Young Money hosted a show at Club Olmeca in Burnsville, MN which isn’t too far from the Twin Cities. Gudda Gudda and Mack Maine headlined the show and performed all of YM’s hits. Gudda was sporting a yellow gold dog tag with the YM emblem covered in black and red diamonds. During their performance of the song “Bedrock” a Cambodian blood gang that goes by the name G.M.F. began to flex their muscles. One member of G.M.F. snatched Gudda’s chain and jumped off stage. Gudda proceeded to jump into the crowd and strike the chain snatcher 3 to 4 times before security stepped in. The club broke into mayhem as the G.M.F. began fighting security. I was told the chain snatcher got beat up pretty badly but Gudda’s chain was no where to be found. This morning Gudda tweeted “Great show in Minnesota until this bum ass nigga tried to snatch my chain and didnt make it out the club wit it! Nice try pussy!”
It’s 2011 and rappers are still getting their chains taken? In public? These guys need to realize that people are hungry and will do whatever to whoever to eat. A lot of the times something like this happens because the artist acts as if he is untouchable or above the fans. Now we would all like to believe Gudda recovered his chain but my source tells me that is untrue. So until the chain is spotted (most likely in a WSHH video posted by the robbers) the dog tags will be a Young Berg mystery. Hit the jump below to see some footage from the show and view Gudda’s tweets this morning.
Trey Songz & the Neptunes Featured on Lupe Fiasco’s “Lasers”
Lupe Fiasco is prepping the release of Lasers for this winter, and the details have finally been revealed on his long delayed third solo album.
The disc will feature guest spots from R&B singer and fellow Atlantic artist Trey Songz as well as British rapper Sway. On the production side, Lu has linked back up with Virgina duo The Neptunes.
The Modest Mouse sampled lead single, “The Show Goes On” just leaked last week. “It’s a big controversial record, and a lot of ears should perk up on this song,” he told Billboard. “It really is what the direction of Lasers is all about.”
Jay-Z Sits Down w/The Wall Street Journal to Discuss “Decoded”
WSJ: A lot of musicians claim to never go back and listen to their old material, but you obviously took some joy in digging back into your archives for “Decoded.”
Jay-Z: I believe that it’s necessary. Especially for rap music, where the words are fast and for the most part there’s not a consistent melody that people can sing along to. So a lot gets lost in translation. Because rap music is poetry, I thought it was important to describe it as such.
WSJ: You’re famous for not writing your lyrics down as you compose them. What changes about them when you see them on the page like this?
Jay-Z: Some [lyrics] become really profound when you see them in writing. Not “Big Pimpin.” That’s the exception. It was like, I can’t believe I said that. And kept saying it. What kind of animal would say this sort of thing? Reading it is really harsh.
