Jodeci To Release “Nobody Wins,” First Single In 18 Years Ft. B.O.B

The Black Guns and Roses, The Black Beatles: JODECI is back at it! Centric and BET recently confirmed that one of the biggest surprises at this year’s Soul Train Awards would be the reunion performance of R&B icons Jodeci. Not only will Jodeci perform a medley of their hits, but the quartet will also debut their new single “Nobody Wins’, their first single in 18 years. The single features rapper B.O.B.

The 1990’s garnered many R&B groups but none quite like Jodeci. It was an era dominated by New Jack Swing where Jodeci married R&B soul and Hip Hop to create a sound that is classic and timeless even today. You can’t talk about R&B, soul, and New Jack Swing without mentioning Jodeci, the Bad Boys of R&B.

Mr. Dalvin recently explained the long awaited release of their new music. “Sometimes it’s just the wrong timing,” Says Mr. Dalvin to Yahoo Music, explaining why the iconic R&B/hip-hop band has not released any new music since 1996’s “Get on Up.” “You can fall into the trap that a lot of artists fall into by just putting records out there because fans are excited and start tarnishing your legacy and body of work you’ve created. People waited all these years for some quality music–not just throwing music out there.”

“Nobody Wins” holds a chorus that exhibits Jodeci’s signature lush harmonies and the unparallelled soul, it takes a slightly different turn for the group. They sing, “Nobody wins when we fight, fuss and argue,” as Atlanta rapper B.o.B. contributes to the verses.

After an 18-year hiatus, the timing is finally right for the quartet who hail from Charlotte, North Carolina. Jodeci was the group to redefine the sound and look of R&B and even Hip Hop as we knew it. They pushed the envelope and changed the game with their silky vocals, gritty blues, unique soul, hip hop flava, and new jack swing. The quartet possessed tight harmonies, vocal arrangement, live instrumentation, and a uniquely urban clothing style. DeVante and Dalvin showcased their genius production and musicianship. K-Ci and JoJo brought soul and silk in the form of vocal ability. The genius that DeVante Swing is as he was able to write, compose, arrange, and be an extraordinary instrumentalist of his caliber in their mid teens is mind boggling!

Jodeci captivated the hearts of R&B fans with 3 classic albums ‘Forever My Lady’, ‘Diary Of A Mad Band’, and The Show, The After Party, The Hotel. They had fans hanging onto every note with classics like “Come and Talk to Me”, “Forever My Lady” and “Freek N U”. Being that Jodeci is greatness personified this new track has to be just as amazing. They plan to release it before their performance next week.

Although Jodeci has recorded dozens of songs together over the last 18 years, the group did not feel that they had a cohesive body of work for their fourth studio album. “We’ve recorded hundreds of songs, even if it’s bits and pieces and fragments of songs that we could probably live off of for the rest of our lives,” Dalvin told Yahoo Music. “But when creating this album, we chose a body of work that really represents us as a group and represents what people are expecting to hear from Jodeci as a group. People will be pleasantly surprised.”

As far as contemporary acts, Dalvin appreciates the love Jodeci has received especially the love from rapper Drake. So many artists have covered, sampled or just merely shouted out Jodeci’s music. Jodeci also dismisses the rumors that they broke up. Although they had individual projects and haven’t always been seen together they never broke up. #JodeciForever. After all they said “Jodeci aint no project! It’s an event.”

Jodeci will appear on Soul Train’s Music Awards Show on November 7. The air date is November 30.

Tiny SPEAKS Out For The First Time Since PERMANENTLY Changing Her Eye Color, “I Just Wanted To Do Something Different”

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 30-10-2014

 photo tinyeyes.png

For the first time, Tiny Harris is speaking out about undergoing surgery to have her eye-color changed from brown to ice-gray. Find out what she told “Good Morning America” about the procedure and what her husband T.I. thinks inside…

We were shocked to learn reality star Tiny Harris underwent surgery to permanently change the color of her eyes. Last week, the “Tiny & Shekinah’s Weave Trip” star posted a picture to Instagram announcing she had changed her iris color from dark brown to ice-gray and she seemed super excited about it.

During a recent trip to Tunisia, Africa (with hubby T.I. and her eldest daughter Zonnique), Tiny went under the knife for the procedure using BrightOcular which, according to the website, is intraocular implant that is placed in the anterior chamber of the eye to change the appearance of the iris. And the reason she had to travel overseas to have the surgery done is because it’s actually illegal here in the United States!

This morning, Tiny appeared on “GMA” where she explained step-by-step how the procedure was performed and how she felt once the surgical operation was over. She revealed,

"They go into the eye and they make a little slit," Harris explained of the procedure that uses a medical-grade silicone. "They take an implant and it’s folded up. They open it [and] spread it over your eye. They told me that the procedure was going to be quick, five to 10 minutes an eye," she said. "They woke me up. It was very blurry, then it kind of fades in."

So what does T.I. think about all this?

"He was like, ‘What are you doing?’" Harris said, adding that now her spouse is OK with the change. "He loves them," she said. "He’s OK with it as long as I’m healthy and don’t have any problems."
 

When asked why she decided to go through with it, she responded,

“I just wanted to do something different. And I have the right to do that. It’s my body.”

Well…it’s not the first time she has altered her body in some way.

After she initially posted to Instagram that she had changed her eye color, she deleted the posting soon after. Maybe the social media backlash was too much for her at first.

Now, she seems to be comfortable with it all because she has since uploaded another Instagram post, praising the doctor who performed the surgery AND sharing a promo code for those of you wishing to change the color of your eyes. She also added a note from the team who performed the surgery. It reads:

 

 

I permanently changed my eye color with Brightocular and lovin it‼️ Huge thanks to the incredible doctor(s) for the amazing experience and for making my dream come true ! I hated wearing contacts just for the color and it made my vision blurry! Blessed to say my vision is #perfect after my #ice-gray implants! Special thanks to the #Brightocular staff for ALL that you’ve done to make this process happen, you’re amaZing & thank you to the hospital’s staff for your exceptional customer service as well,‼️I would also like to raise awareness about those under privileged living with serious eye conditions called ocular albinism, aniridia, and iris coloboma. Brightocular can help you. For more info everyone GO visit the brightocular.com website; to get the #BEST #DEAL when booking your appointment, mention Promo Code #KM404 and tell them I sent you!!! ✔️ SD Note: Ofcourse any procedure has potential risks but no one has gone blind with brightocular and the success rate has been close to 100%. The media is referring to a story from 2009 and data of side effects from a different shaped and even different colored implant that is currently used in Panama since 2002. Brightocular was launched and patent approved in 2010. We do not recommend using this implant from the doctor in Panama. Brightocular is the only artificial iris implant with the United States patent grooves and channels design to accomplish a successful surgery. For more info on the differences, risks, and benefits of all artificial iris implants used around the world, contact brightocular.

The part that stands out the most: "Of course any procedure has potential risks but no one has gone blind with brightocular and the success rate has been close to 100%."  Please note, there have been no LONG TERM studies conducted to confirm this….LONG TERM.

Anyhoo, check out her full interview here.

T-Pain SINGS….Sans Auto-Tune—Says Kanye West Doesn’t Use Auto-Tune Correctly + Anthony Hamilton Hilariously FREESTYLES “P.O.P. Hold It Down”

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 30-10-2014

 photo tpain.png

T-Pain is singing y’all! And this time, he left his auto-tune device at home. Take a listen to T-Pain singing a few of his hits sans auto-tune and find out what he said about Kanye West not using the tool correctly. Also, we have a funny video of Anthony Hamilton and his backup singers remixing “P.O.P. Hold It Down.” More inside….

The king of auto-tune is proving he doesn’t NEED the tool to sound good on a track. T-Pain, who flooded the music charts in the 2000s with his auto-tuned hits, performed before an intimate crowd for NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert series recently. And he left behind his auto-tune machine…on purpose.

The Nappy Boy Entertainment founder caught a lot of heat for using auto-tune so much on his tracks. It even sparked Jay Z to drop a track “D.O.A. (Death Of Auto-Tune) in 2009, throwing jabs at artists who use the tool as a crutch. Now, whether he was talking about T-Pain specifically, that remains unknown, but Pain did pop back at Hov after the track dropped saying “a 59 year old shouldn’t be trying to dictate what’s hot in rap”. Bloop!

Now…the 29-year-old (yes, 29) rapper/singer is proving he doesn’t actually need auto-tune. Sitting before a small audience with just a microphone and his friend on the keyboard, T-Pain remixed a three of his hits “Buy U A Drank (Shawty Snappin’), "Up Down (Do This All Day)" and "Drankin’ Patna” as he crooned the lyrics in a melodic way. And he sounds pretty damn good.

Check it below:
 

Speaking of auto-tune….

In a recent interview with HuffPost Live, T-Pain revealed there are only two artists who have mastered how to use auto-tune (outside of himself) and that is Chris Brown and Jamie Foxx. Makes sense, since he said he was the one who taught both of them how to use it. He sounded off,

"When people hear Auto-Tune, they know that it’s used so much for a crutch. I use it to turn my voice into an instrument. Don’t get me wrong, there are a lot of guys that use Auto-Tune that cannot sing. The only person I heard use it correctly, like I use it, was Chris Brown and Jamie Foxx".

So who is using the technology and just not doing it right? According to T-Pain that would be Kanye West! You’ll recall Yeezy dropped an entire album, 808s & Heartbreak, in 2008 using auto-tune and even with the help of the “Rappa Ternt Sanga” Ye still isn’t using it in the most effective way…well so says Pain.

He dished,

"Kanye uses it, but he doesn’t use it correctly. He makes great music with it, but the way that I use it and the way that I’ve shown Chris and Jamie to use it, he doesn’t use it that way," he said. "He sings without it first, and then he puts it on it. … You don’t know how it’s going to come out. You can’t catch your mistakes before that happens. Sometimes he gets a little wobbly and things like that."

Oh…ok. It’s interesting to note, T-Pain actually helped Ye on his 808s album and said that the result was “pretty good” being that he helped him use the technology. Guess he’s just not feeling what Ye dropped afterwards.

 

And in a hilarious video…. 

Anthony Hamilton has joined in on the viral video foolishness of “P.O.P’s” Donna Goudeau.

After rocking the stage in Melbourne, Australia during Soulfest 2014, Anthony Hamilton and his backup vocalists, dubbed The Hamiltones, decided to have a little fun backstage. In a video clip, Anthony and his crew freestyle their version of “P.O.P. Hold It Down” crooning lyrics/quotes from the recent viral sensation. And it will have you cracking up!

20 Horrorcore Songs To Bump This Halloween

Posted by | Posted in Da Game and Industry News | Posted on 30-10-2014

Mars is one of the bearers of the Horrorcore torch these days. When it comes to Horrorcore, he’s pretty much got it covered. He’s got the movement, the songs, and even the controversy. So, as Halloween descends upon us, we decided to go to this Bay area master of macabre. Oh, we definitely don’t co-sign this crazy music he’s promoting. If you are into it, check hm out at iTunes or Twitter.  And, with that, here is a list of some of the most horrifically insane rap songs with a Halloween swing.

1. Insane Clown Posse – “Sleepwalkers”

I remember when ICP first dropped this single for free at Hallowicked, an annual event they have had in Detroit for the last 20 years on Halloween. Had this on repeat for weeks. A song where Violent J chokes and murders people in his sleep while eating fast food? Genius. Easily one of my favorite ICP songs.

2. A-Wax – “Dead People”

I’m a huge fan of rappers from my area. A-Wax, who runs with Waka Flocka and Brock Squad, put this out on his Nightmare From Elm St mixtape series. I’m happy that there’s from the town that also enjoys rapping about murder and dead things. P-World.



3. X-Raided – “Witta Mask On”

The very first horrorcore song I’ve ever heard was X-Raided’s “Witta Mask on” from his second album on Black Market Records Xorcist. How can you not love this? Rapping over the phone, from prison, being convicted of murder, talking about the craziest s**t? I was hooked. The first record label I was signed to was Black Market Records years later. I even have a track with X-Raided on my Zodiac Mixtape where he raps a alternate version of the first verse of this song. Super f***in dope. Free X-Raided.

4. Kung Fu Vampire – “Dead Girls Don’t Say No”

Kung Fu Vampire is an artist from San Jose, CA signed to my record label Mad Insanity Records. Easily one of the most talented and driven artists doing “big fangs” out of the Bay. It’s Halloween, how can you not want to listen to a song about f***ing dead chicks? This Halloween night, if you’re chilling with a bitch that might not give up the cat, put this song on, and look her dead in the eyes. She may get the hint. She may get a restraining order…

5. Ganxsta NIP – “Horror Movie Rap”

One of the godfathers of the wicked s**t, Ganxsta NIP is possibly one of the strangest human beings I have ever befriended in my life. He is really bat s**t f**king crazy. In real life nuts. Which made working with him all the better. I’m pretty sure he wants to kill me. Signing him at one point in my career has always been a highlight. Props to NIP for teaching me how to be a psycho. With lines like “Woke up with a dead dog on me, so I thought, huh, bologna…” “Horror Movie Rap” has always been one of my favorites. Classic record.

6. K.F. Klik featuring Big Lurch – “Thrilla”

I don’t know who the f**k K.F. Klik is or was, but they are dope as f**k for this one. I came across this song a bunch of years ago searching for Big Lurch tracks on the internet. Big Lurch is in prison right now for wigging out on PCP and eating a his homegirl’s lung, and was arrested booty naked on the streets of LA covered in blood. Need I say more? Instant fan. I was actually his project manager for his album “It’s All Bad” on Black Market Records. When they wouldn’t let me have Pen & Pixel Graphics superimpose him holding a plate full of lungs and human ribs, I quit the label. Anyways, this is one of the hardest horror verses by him out there.

7. Esham – “The Wicked S**t Will Never Die”

East Side Hoes And Money. This is one of the hardest Esham tracks period. This list wouldn’t be complete without a track from Detroit Acid Rap pioneer’s 1994 album Closed Casket. The entire album from beginning to end is the shit. In fact, I would say this was one of the dopest years for horror rap history. So many dope albums dropped this year. It was around this time all of the artists who thought they invented this style of music found out about each other from different parts of the country. This was his darkest s**t. (Editor’s Note: Ganxta NIP says he is the creator off the Horrorcore genre.)

8.  Twiztid – “Blood… All I Need.”

One of the hardest groups in horrorcore in the last what… 20 years? Twiztid. This track was on their final Psychopathic Records release “Abominationz” which I believe was a f***ing masterpiece. Every track is ridiculously good. This album gets heavy rotation around here. Blood and guts is my s**t. Detroit has something in the water out there. No seriously, don’t drink the water there.

9. Brotha Lynch Hung – “Return Of The Baby Killa”

You can’t go wrong with a song that starts off with the tales of barrel f**king a girl and blowing her p***y guts all over the room. This man is responsible for making me believe there was no boundaries in my pen game. Baby killing and murder? You can thank Lynch for that one. In high school everyone had this tape. I think for the pure fact that I’ve probably owned this tape or CD like 10 times in my life that it went gold. People
would always take this CD out of your car for themselves if you left them alone. Parents would catch their kids listening to this, and toss their CD out. Then they would go buy new copies. Even the redneck s**t kicker cowboys at school would bump this in the parking lot. A must have.

10. Flatlinerz – “Live Evil”

In New York, the Flatlinerz, or more specific Russell Simmons’s nephew Jamal “Redrum” Simmons coined the word “Horrorcore”. When this video hit MTV the world was not ready. They are actually working on new material right now. When Marilyn Manson was asked about rap music in an interview, he said he wished horrorcore would make a comeback. This is who he was referring to. You got your wish you pale gothy weirdo.

11. Tech N9ne featuring Liquid Assassin – “Psycho Bitch 2″

Tech N9ne is the King Of Darkness. In most of the songs on this list the artists portray themselves as the killer. Not this one. You know that one b**ch you bang out, and then slowly realize you might have f**ked up by giving her your real number? You know, the ones that add your baby momma on Facebook and are extra nice to her? Psycho B***hes. As an artist we all know these kinds of chicks all too well. This track features my dude Liquid Assassin from St. Paul, MN. He is one of my favorite people in the world to tour with. He absolutely kills his verse.

12. Geto Boys – “Assassins”

I’m pretty sure Ganxsta NIP wrote a lot of this (Editor’s note: Prince Johnny C is credited for writing most of “Assassins”), but this is one of the first horrorcore tracks out there if not the first, but then again the Fat Boys “Are You Ready For Freddy”, or Fresh Prince’s. “Nightmare On My Street” were both horror rap songs that came out the same year. I don’t know why but the line “I stabbed the girl in her tits” makes me giggle. F**king awesome.

13. Big L – “The Devil’s Son”

“When I was 12, I went to hell for snuffin Jesus,” – Nas in the sample. No, actually when I was 12, I got in trouble for being caught fingering a girl in my room. By my mom. What a cock block. In 1993 Big L dropped “The Devil’s Son”. Which was a year later after this incident. New York always had their own style of the wicked s**t. This was one was good money son. RIP Big L.

14. Boondox – “They Pray With Snakes” (Remix)

I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know Boondox over the years. He’s from Covington, Georgia and has a dope southern horrorcore steez on the Psychopathic Records imprint. If you watch Orange Is the New Black they used one of his songs at the end of the episode where Pennsatucky vowed to kill Piper. I’ve always liked this track of his and I would have to say this is one of his darkest.

15. Triple 6 – featuring Big Drawz “Grave Digger”

I was in High School when my best friend J RZ had this cassette in his car. I remember feeling like I was going to hell for even listening to this song. I immediately asked what tape this was. He said Triple 6. I spent 10 years looking for a copy. I only got one once I met ADR Lavey from the group and we started working on tracks together. He is the devil himself.
He took me to my first big studio to record. He showed me the world. I ended up on some of the dopest Bay Area compilations working with Triple 6 for years and consider them to be some of my best friends. Crazy right? I hope you listen to this song and feel like a sinner.


16. Insane Clown Posse – “Cemetery Girl”

One of my absolute favorites. This whole song is filled with Halloween Sound Effects samples. Mike E Clark did his thang on the production tip. A urban love story about a man and his girl. His dead girl. That they have to dig up from a Graveyard. I don’t think ICP realizes how much I look up to them, and  how much I appreciate them showing me the love they have over
the years. I grew up on their sIIt. If it wasn’t for ICP, I wouldn’t look the way I do, or grind as hard as I do now. Still a huge fan.

17. Necro – “Dead Body Disposal”

Necro is by far one of the most brutal hip-hop acts period. His production is some of the most sought after to hip-hop heads everywhere. If you ever kill somebody, listen close. He will tell you how to drain, cut up, and dispose of the body in this 2001 underground tutorial from his Gory Days album. I recently got to hook up with Necro after years of knowing him and
about him for a track on my upcoming mixtape “Locked Up A Broad”. Fresh.

19. Sicx – 9 Millametta

Now I know some people would be pissed that I put Sicx on here because he too – like many others is in prison for living the crazy shit he talked about – but I don’t give a f**k. This was some of the hardest s**t out here on the West Coast when I was growing up. “Should I waste her or should I just let ‘em panic, or give birth to another human schizophrantic?” That siccness lives on.



20. Blaze Ya Dead Homie – “Maggot Face”

One of my favorite artists in the scene is Blaze Ya Dead Homie. Somebody murdered him back in the day, he came back to life and the rest is history. I imagine being a dead guy, the maggots can get annoying. I toured with him after he came back to life for my first real national tour ever. Dude took me to the f***in Grand Canyon and laced my boots with game. Forever props.
