Posted by | Posted in Da Game and Industry News | Posted on 29-08-2015

(AllHipHop News) The streaming wars just got very messy. Tidal exclusively streamed Lil Wayne’s “Lil Weezyana Fest” in New Orleans last night (August 28), and Tunechi brought out several guests including Juvenile, Turk, Mannie Fresh, and Master P. But when Wayne was ready to bring his Young Money artist Drake to the stage, the live stream cut off.

Tidal-Apple

Reports began circulating earlier in the evening that Apple threatened to sue Tidal for $20 million if the platform streamed Drake performing. The Toronto native sign a reported $19 million exclusive deal with Apple. This fight comes after Tidal financier Jay Z suggested Apple was running a smear campaign against his company back in April.

Lil Wayne is a part owner of Tidal along with other artists such as Beyoncé, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, J. Cole, Kanye West, Madonna, Alicia Keys, and Usher. Proceeds from Wayne’s “Lil Weezyana Fest” were to benefit kids affected by Hurricane Katrina.

“This event is for charity, Drake is doing two songs,” a source told Page Six. “Why does Apple think it can dictate to artists where and when they can perform?”

ALL GROWN UP: Zonnique Gets Grown In New Video “Nun For Free” Ft. Young Thug

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 28-08-2015

T.I. and Tiny’s daughter Zonnique is declaring her independence and womanhood in a brand new video “Nun For Free” featuring Young Thug. Peep her debut video treatment as a solo artist inside….

After calling it quits with her teeny bop girl group OMG Girlz earlier this year, T.I. and Tiny’s daughter Zonnique is back with new visuals to debut her solo sound.

The 19-year-old singer joins forces with Atlanta rapper Young Thug for her first single “Nun For Free.” And in the video treatment, she’s declaring her independence as a grown woman.

In the Daniel CZ-directed clip, Nique Nique serves a little sexiness as she lies on top of a white tire while throwing money in the air. Chick is hurling expletives all the while busting a few moves, proving she can hold her own as an independent artist.

Take peek below:

We feelin’ it?

In addition to her new video, Zonnique appears to be gearing up to release a new photoshoot spread. Or maybe these are pictorials for her upcoming album. Either way, she’s sitting pretty:

Celebrity stylist and owner of KONTROL magazine Julian Lark, who shared a few behind-the-scenes shots, brought her fabulous looks together.

Cute.

Speaking of Tip and Tiny…

It’s being reported Ant Man actor and rapper Clifford “T.I.” Harris and Tameka “Tiny” Cottle-Harris owe Uncle Sam some SERIOUS cash.

According to Page Six, the couple owes the IRS a whopping $4.5 million in unpaid taxes from 2012 and 2013. Yikes!

The publication reports:

The first federal tax lien was filed earlier this month in Georgia and states the “Blurred Lines” rapper, 34, along with his wife Tameka “Tiny” Harris (in the document she is listed as Tameka Cottle), owe the US government just under $1.4 million in unpaid taxes for the year 2012.

The Feds filed a second lien solely against Harris for unpaid taxes in 2013 amounting to nearly $3.2 million.

A rep for the rapper tells Page Six, “Mr. Harris and his team are working with the appropriate parties to resolve this matter.”

In words of Tip, “Get Ya Sh*t Together.”

Phaedra Parks Opens Up In ‘Rolling Out’ About ‘Black Lives Matter’ And Being A Single Mom

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 28-08-2015

 photo efrefreffreferfref.png

"RHOA" star Phaedra Parks poses for the latest issue of ROLLING OUT where she recounts her road to success and the obstacles she’s had to endure.  Also, find out more about her commitment to helping parent young Black males inside…

 photo Phaedra-Parks-1-640x960.jpg

Whether you’re a fan of "RHOA" or not, it’s hard to dislike Phaedra Parks.  With several successful businesses in Atlanta (including a legal practice and a funeral home), and a role on one of TV’s hottest reality shows, she’s a woman with a plan and a vision for the legacy she wants to leave behind.  And the road hasn’t been easy….

In addition to watching her become a single mother right before our eyes (her husband Apollo Nida was incarcerated for fraud), we also saw her handle Miss USA Kenya Moore with style and grace.  And that couldn’t have be easy.

Now….she’s talking to ROLLING OUT about going forward with her legacy, which includes writing a book about raising Black boys and "speaking life" to people going through struggles. Prepare to be inspired….

 

Do you think your old-school mindset came from the way you were raised?
Growing up in Athens, [Georgia], coming from a political family, a family of preachers, we were the quintessential old school, middle class black family. Both of my parents are pastors and educators. I went to the school that my parents taught in, so people expected more of me.

So, you grew up in a lot of structure. Being in the entertainment world as an attorney and as a reality star can be a very demanding and even chaotic. How do you make those two things fit?
I never had any intentions on being an entertainment attorney. I think this was truly my calling. My main goal was always to help someone, and I’ve always been very connected with Black men. When you look at the structure of the entertainment world and its leadership, there are not a lot of people that look like us. When I first got into the industry, that’s what resonated with most of my clients. They were the people that no one wanted. People didn’t understand them. They had issues that the majority of attorneys did not want to deal with. So, I found out what my niche was: helping people who most thought could not be rehabilitated. And I really made it my duty to show that just because someone has an issue doesn’t mean that they can’t be successful.

You’re on a show where you can get pulled into situations and it’s not always about “speaking life.” How do you deal with that?
I’m on a show where they speak death all the time. But the way I have conducted myself has set me apart because I really try to think before I speak. I try not to say things that I can’t come back from. I’m always very careful, and just because you’re thinking something doesn’t mean that you should say it. But there’ve been a lot of times where I wanted to rip somebody’s wig off.

You always seem to be thinking two or three steps ahead. Have you ever considered that maybe you overthink things?
No. I think anyone that’s smart is always thinking forward. The smart person is always thinking about the next phase of their life. At the end of the day, my legacy won’t be that I was on a reality show. I want my legacy to be that I’ve made a change for many people, opened doors for women, that I was a great mother juggling a family and a career. Not that I was a fool on a reality show. There’s no honor in that.

 photo Phaedra-Parks-4-640x960.jpg

You’ve been speaking around the country. What is that thing that you’re really able to dig down and share with people that resonates with them?
In this past year, people have seen how I’ve dealt with my husband being incarcerated, and I became a single mom in front of the world. But I think that on the flip side, people saw me as a pregnant woman, going to school and getting my degree. I had both of my children on the show. And I was still able to come out of all of that unscathed. People have seen me at the best and at the worst of times. They’ve seen me in heated situations where I handled myself respectably. I can speak to the students because I know what it’s like to stay up all night studying. I know what it’s like to be pregnant and go to school. I can speak to the person who is in a marriage with issues; I’ve been that person. I’ve been in many adverse situations where I’ve succeeded and didn’t compromise my morals. I think a lot of these things resonate with people because these are things that we all deal with. Tests build testimonies. As long as you’re questioning, “God, why am I here?” and not accepting defeat, that’s when you know you have the option to get out.

 photo Phaedra-Parks-2-640x960.jpg

In 2013, you published Secrets of a Southern Belle. Are we going to see another book from you?
Absolutely. I am playing with the idea of writing a book about parenting, and about Black boys. I want to talk about how you prepare a Black boy for this society that we’re in. I’m active with the Black Lives Matter movement, because although it’s 2015, the social and racial climate makes it feel like 1960.

Do you think “Black lives matter” in this country?
No. I don’t. I think Black lives have been devalued by the United States merely because of legislation and acts of people in power that say, especially to our Black boys, that they don’t matter. I see it all too often. I think that, socioeconomically, people that sit in my tax bracket are not putting money back into our community. This year, I participated in Bloody Sunday’s 50th anniversary, and I could count the number of celebrities on one hand. I saw more politicians than people who influence the culture. They haven’t taken their platform to really use it in a way that is influential in our community.


Phaedra is currently filming the next season of RHOA.  Read the rest of her interview over at Rolling Out.
