Lola Monroe: I Wasn’t Dropped From Taylor Gang Because I Was Never Signed (VIDEO)

Posted by | Posted in Da Game and Industry News | Posted on 30-09-2013

(AllHipHop News) All seems to be fair in business and rap, as former Taylor Gang member Lola Monroe spoke on his relationship with her former label after reports of her being dropped. On the red carpet of the BET Hip Hop Awards, Lola spoke with HipHopWired about what her status at Taylor Gang was over the past two years.

According to the new mom, contrary to the statement released by the Taylor Gang imprint, she was not released due to one specific stipulation:

You can’t get dropped unless you’re signed. Plain and simple. This is business. You keep it moving through certain circumstances but at the end of the day it’s all love as far as a personal level.

Monroe first announced her affiliation with Taylor Gang in October of 2011 during an interview with Atlanta’s V-103 and noted her “business instincts” as to what led her to choosing the house that Wiz Khalifa built:

Plus, out of all the situations that came to me, my business instincts and just the comfort level, I felt it was just the right move with him. [Wiz] a stand-up dude and it just felt right.

Lola Monroe’s upcoming project, Lipsticks & Pistols will be hosted by DJ Ill Will and is expected to see a 2013 release.

DRAKE NAMED “GLOBAL AMBASSADOR” OF THE TORONTO RAPTORS

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 30-09-2013

With the recent release of his third studio album Nothing Was The Same and hinting that he will be taking a foray back into acting, it’s safe to say that Drake is having a pretty good year, right? That would be safe to say, but the Toronto-born rapper/singer is about to put on for his city in a huge way.

It was announced today by MSLE, the company that owns and operates several Toronto-based sports team, that Toronto will host the 2016 NBA All-Star Game, and to prepare for this, they have enlisted none other than Drake to serve as the Toronto Raptors’ global ambassador.

In his role as global ambassador, Drake will be consulting with the team for a complete rebranding, leading up to the franchise’s 20th anniversary in the 2014-1015 season. This includes spearheading a clothing line for the team, rebranding the team’s current image (logos, etc), and serving as a host to all Raptors related activities.

His role in helping reposition the Toronto Raptors brand is sparking comparison to Jay Z’s efforts with the Brooklyn Nets. He has big shoes to fill, but with Toronto always on his back, he is definitely the right man for the job. Congrats to Drake!

After reports swirled earlier today abut Keyshia Cole hitting up her ex Jeezy‘s birthday party last night in Atlanta, we’ve now got the picture proof.

 

Pics inside…

It’s just a party, right?  Well, yeah.  But when you’re having very public marital issues with your NBA baller hubby and you conveniently roll to the birthday party for your ex–whom you had a very public breakup with and spoke about how badly you were treated–ish looks a little suss.

Keyshia Cole showed off her new black hair and a bold red lip as she chilled in the VIP section of Velvet Room nightclub Sunday night.  She flew solo without her husband Daniel Gibson.  And Jeezy seemed pretty stoked she came out:

Keyshia chilled in the VIP section with Meek Mill, Juelz Santana, French Montana and more:

And another oddity for the night:

Yung Joc and Karlie Redd seemed to be real close all night.  This chick stays hopping from irrelevant rapper to irrelevant rapper.

Wonder what Jeezy thought about his special visitor?

Danny Brown Talks Gruesome Detroit Past , Says Chief Keef May Be Best Rapper Alive + More On Reddit’s Ask Me Anything

Posted by | Posted in Da Game and Industry News | Posted on 30-09-2013

(AllHipHop News) Reddit’s Ask Me Anything sessions with celebrities have resulted in some startling revelations. This time around, Fool’s Gold’s Danny Brown answered fans questions on his upbringing in Detroit,, getting oral sex performed on him while performing and more.

When one fan asked about the craziest incident Brown ever witnessed during his upbringing in Detroit, the eccentric MC spared no gruesome detail in his recounting:

I remember one time a domestic dispute was happening and homey shot his girlfriend in front of everybody on the block in the foot with a shotgun .. her toes was allover the street

Danny Brown also said he would not work with SpaceGhostPurp or the Raider Clan due to their differences with Brown’s close friends, the A$AP Mob. Brown also remarks that either Kendrick Lamar or Chief Keef are the best rappers alive. 

In a recent cover story article with Complex, Brown denounced Kendrick Lamar’s “Death To Molly” stance in the Compton’s rapper’s music video for “B*tch Don’t Kill My Vibe”:

I hate when I see a video on WorldStar of some dude running in the street naked and they’re talking about he’s on molly. Even the Kendrick ‘Death to Molly’ thing, it’s just like, Why? I’m not about to be no drug junkie for molly. I’m tired of defending it at this point. We’re having fun. We’re having a good time. Why are you so mad? I’m not a molly rapper. Molly is just my alter ego; it brings out the person that wants to have fun.

A HEALTHCARE "SCANDAL" — Jennifer Hudson SPOOFS "Olivia Pope" & OBAMACARE + Wale’s "Golden Salvation" (VIDEO) + Kelis’ "If" (PREVIEW)

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 30-09-2013

Just in time for OBAMACare, Jennifer Hudson has recorded a hilarious affordable healthcare spoof.  Watch the singer solve a "Scandal" inside plus Wale’s "Golden Salvation" video and listen to a preview of Kelis’ "If" single….

With open enrollment for the Affordable Care Act set to start tomorrow, Jennifer Hudson has strapped on a chic white trench coat (in homage to Kerry Washington) to solve a "Scandal" in Washington.  As Lydia Cole, Jennifer Hudson is a problem fixer….in the best way.  Watch the "I Can’t Decide" singer help the folks in DC get their life (and health) above….

 

In new music videos…..

In his latest song from The Gifted, Wale takes the listener (and viewer) to church and asks them to consider how much of their soul they’d sell for a Jesus piece.  He told Rap-Up, "The message in this video is clear as day. Had it been released when ‘fans’ cared bout creative music and story telling. It would have challenged listeners.. But we live in a time where ppl have selective hearing.”

He asks, “For the price of fame, what would you do to have them say your name?" Consider the question and listen to the song above…

Wale is currently on tour with J. Cole for the “What Dreams May Come” tour.

And in new music….

 

A few days ago we shared Kelis’ latest single "Been Given A Morning" from her upcoming disc FOOD, and now we have another tune from her and LA-based producer Basshitter.  We’re really feeling Kelis’ sultry voice set against these darky jazzy groves…..    

Get a plate and grab a slice of "If" here:

Fail of the Day: Man Carjacks Ambulance to Get Out of Traffic Jam

Posted by | Posted in Da Game and Industry News | Posted on 30-09-2013

A man stuck in a Pennsylvania traffic jam was so frustrated about being stuck that he jumped out of his cab and carjacked an ambulance. Brian Timothy Kada Jr., of Florida,  jumped out of the taxi he was riding on the Schuylkill Expressway and ran up to an EMStar ambulance that was in front of the cab.

He allegedly brandished a shotgun and forced his way into the ambulance, which was carrying two medics and a patient on the way to a local hospital. The medics jumped out and Kada took the wheel and began speeding on the shoulder.

Not only was he weaving in and out of traffic but a witness said he clipped the mirror of another car. Eventually the rear of the ambulance got flat and he was forced to pull over. The patients in the ambulance were unharmed.

 NBC Philadelphia reports that Kada Jr. is charged with robbery of motor vehicle, kidnapping, assault and related charges.

Of all the cars he could have highjacked though? Not that carjacking is cool but still…

Fail, fail and more fail. I’m not too sure that he actually pulled out a shotgun (it was probably a smaller gun, one that’s easy to tote around) but either way, it’s never this serious. I know that sitting in traffic can be frustrating but I repeat, it’s NEVER that serious. Now he’s sitting up in the bing on charges. Smh.
