Kid Cudi Album Announces Album Release Date

31 May

Kid Cudi

Kid Cudi has revealed that his second album, ‘Man On The Moon: The Legend Of Mr. Rager’ will hit stores on 14th September. Cudi who recently reunited with Kanye West on a new pop-rock track, ‘Dance Yrself Clean’ commented:

“My album sounds nothing like you’ve ever heard before and I can’t describe it to be honest. Like MOTM, it’s one of a kind and very VERY honest.”

Minaj: I Don’t Want To Sound Like “Other Female Artists”

19 Apr

Nicki Minaj

Cash Money records has announced that Nicki Minaj will be releasing her highly anticipated debut album this autumn. Hopefully, the tracks on the album will be 1000% better than that monstrosity “Massive Attack” featuring Sean Garrett. I find it hard to believe how she can have great features but poor solo stuff. Hmmmm.

Nicki has even gone on the record to say that she doesn’t want to release material that sounds like “other female artists” in the game: “I want to start a new lane that one day, 10 years from now, girls will say, ‘I’m more of a Nicki Minaj type.”

Well, I have to break it to Miss Nicki, that with her ‘Black Barbie’ act the words ‘Lil Kim’ come to mind and the fact that she’s just gone and recorded “Hold Yuh” with Gyptian (where her flow sounds awfully like Foxy on “Oh Yeah”) she’s going to have to try a bit harder to get away from comparisons.

Anyways, I’ll be looking out for the new Minaj album. Guaranteed you will hear my thoughts on it.

Kanye Turns His Back On Electro?

14 Apr

Kanye West

If the latest rumours about Kanye West ‘taking it back to basics’ are to be believed, then it seems like Mr. West and the electro beat are no more. In a recent interview with The Red Bulletin DJ Premier said: “Kanye’s new album is strictly hard beats and rhymes. He’s totally done with electro. You’re gonna be surprised by what you hear.”

Kanye‘s fifth studio album, ‘Good Ass Job’ which is due for release this summer will feature top names such as Drake, Q-Tip and his new protégé Big Sean. Sounds interesting, but I guess we’ll see if going back to basics means he’s getting rid of that dreaded Auto-Tune.  Hmmmm [Kanye Shrug].

We Will Have To Wait A Little Longer For Drake

8 Apr

Drake

Ever since it was announced that Drake’s highly anticipated album “Thank Me Later” would be dropping on May 25, everyone breathed a sigh of relief…

But now it turns out that we’re going to have to wait a little bit longer before we get our hands on a copy as the release has now been pushed back another month to June 15th.

Drake who recently unveiled a new track named “Fireworks” during the Pennsylvania leg of his tour, blamed the delay on the fact that he wants to make some ‘finishing touches’ to the album. So I guess we’ll just have to keep waiting patiently…

Trey Songz – Neighbors Know My Name [Video]

2 Mar

Tremaine has done it again – he’s gone and released another steamy video. Although Neighbors Know My Name is not as steamy as the Invented Sex video, it’s still a corker and Trey looks hot, as always! Nice cinematography and play with colours… Neighbors Know My Name is the 3rd single from the Ready album, go grab a copy, it’s worth it.

P.s. Mr. Songz needs to get his ass to the UK and do a concert!

Leak Alert: Kanye West – Diamonds [Audio]

28 Feb

Kanye West

A Kanye West track named Diamonds, possibly from his upcoming 5th album, has been leaked. It’s definitely the type of track you’d expect from Ye but what’s up with the mumbling? It sounds like he’s forgotten the lyrics or had another ‘Hennessey moment’ in the booth. However, Kanye has said that the new album will be “an old school record on a tape deck” created with “just a drum machine, ghetto blaster and a microphone”. Sure sounds like it.

Rating: 5/10
