Remy and Papoose play Mickey and Mallory over the beat to Smoothe Da Hustler and Trigger Tha Gambler’s ’90s classic “Broken Language. Remy’s quotable lyrics:

The thot popper, the Roc wyler
The Bronx bomber
The twat proper

In other music news….

During his “Jungle Tour” stop at The Palace of Auburn Hills in Detroit on Wednesday night, Drake dropped a new freestyle that took jabs at Cash Money execs and a few others.

He raps,
“Look, I would have so many friends if I didn’t have money, success, and accomplishments. I would have so many friends if I held back the truth and I just gave out compliments / I would have all of your fans if I didn’t go pop and I stayed on some conscious shit / Man, I would have so many more friends if I lost my respect and my confidence.

Cause I’m in the club every time that they play the competition, if they even play the competition / And I see no response they get, nobody’s even hearing it.

Y’all better not come to my studio with that fake shit / Y’all better not come to my funeral with that fake shit / All I ever ask is that you keep it 100 / … All I ever ask is you keep it 8 more than 92 with me…100."

He also accuses folks at Cash Money of stealing money from him. Ouch.  Here we go…

YBF INTERVIEW: Lauren London Gives The REAL Deal About "ATL 2" & Lessons ‘Keira’ Can Learn From "Real Life" Lauren

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 31-05-2015

 photo lauen london interview_zps2w7jyawc.jpg

Yes, she’s just as beautiful in person…even while getting over a cold.   TheYBF.com sat down with BET’s "The Game" star Lauren London this week to find out what we can expect from the upcoming season finale.  Oh, and we squeezed some juice out of the actress about the ATL sequel.  Get our interview inside…

She’s a mom to 5-year-old Cameron Carter, considers herself entirely too grown to learn anything from her character ‘Keira’ on "The Game," and she wants her next move to be something she hasn’t done before.

Actress Lauren London, rocking a chic Theory blouse, camel skirt and hot Isabel Marant heels, chopped it up with TheYBF.com over brunch at the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills this week.  With a little prodding, we found out one thing to expect from the series finale.  And we also dished about what’s really happening with ATL 2, the sequel to the movie that arguably put Lauren London on the map.

When it comes to the 30-year-old joining "The Game" on the heels of star Tia Mowry‘s exit, Lauren makes it crystal clear that she did not replace Tia.  She calls the "Keira Whitaker vs. Melanie Barnett" discussion an unfair comparison, and insists "Keira" has her own and separate identity.

We also got her real-life advice for her drama-in-relationships-loving character "Keira," especially since the actress is in a steady relationship herself with rapper Nipsey Hussle.  Personal questions were off limits, but we still got a little insight.

Here’s the chat between YBF Correspondents Lauren Smith/Ashlee Laughlin and Lauren London:

YBF: Tell us about your character Keira’s growth and this upcoming final season.

Lauren London: My character started off a little shaky. We didn’t really know who she was. She didn’t really know who she was. And at the end of it all, she figures it out. She goes back to what she knows works best for her. I think that’s like life in general. When you lose your way, you gotta go back to the root. And she goes back to the root. So we see her making a full circle at the end. Very different than how we started, girl.

Can you give us a tidbit on what to expect in this final season?

Expect to be surprised.

So what’s next for you now that "That Game" is a wrap?

We ended "The Game" right before Christmas. I’ve just been focusing on being a mother and trying to find out what I want to do. Trying to find a script that works for me. Something I’ve never done before.  ATL 2 came up so we’re trying to figure that out. And there are two movies I’m up for right now.

Now, ATL 2, is that definitely in the works?

It’s not definitely in the works. I don’t want to be the spokesperson for it. I don’t want people take my word for it. So, no.  Right now it is a concept and there’s a lot of possibilities with that.

If you could add anything to the ATL script from when we last saw New-New, where do you see her going in ATL 2?

I can’t give you that. That’s a lot. Even my own opinion. My own opinion might be on the screen. I might have some writer credit, I don’t know. [Laughs]

Oh! Ok….

I’m not saying I do, but I’m saying I may say some sh*t that I’m not supposed to. I always get in trouble.  But I would still want New-New’s fashion to be…I feel like the character and all her aesthetics should remain important. Like her hair and her lipgloss, [etc.], I wouldn’t want to lose that. Even though she does grow up, I think she should still be funky, fresh and spunky. I would keep that.

Your castmates on "The Game" — Who are you closest to and who do you hang out with off screen?

In different ways I’m close to everybody.  But since I did most of my scenes with Hosea [Chanchez] and Jay [Ellis], I’m the closest to them.

So if Hosea and Jay were to get into a fight and duke it out, who would you bet on?

Uhhhh I’m gonna break that up.  Yeah, I’m not going to let them fight.  Not gonna bet on none of ‘em.

 

 photo ep_902_06_zpslnbaznrp.jpg

Who have you learned from the most while working on the series?

Wendy! Wendy [Raquel Robinson] has been in this game the longest. She has this sense of professionalism that I think we can all learn from. Even when she’s tired or a day is just rough, she holds her head up high and she gives her all till to ever scene at the last, final hour. She gives it her all.

And are there any life lessons you learned from "Keira" while playing her?

No, no! She’s way too young for me to learn life lessons from. She’s 20-something and I’m 30. She can learn life lessons from me! She’s a BABY. Who she is in "The Game" and who I am in real life are two totally different people.

So if Keira was a real-life friend of yours, what advice would you give her?

I would tell her to focus on herself and get to know herself better before she jumps into new relationships using men for security.
 

Amen to that!  Here’s the synopsis for the upcoming season:

In season 9, at the new bond between Kiera and Malik affects everyone – on and off the field. Tasha’s new child forces her to make a life changing decision where she must choose between her professional and personal life. A few careless actions off the field have major repercussions for Blue. And even after her divorce is settled, Chardonnay has trouble letting go of Jason and vows to take revenge on him. Meanwhile, Jason and Kelly make a surprising commitment as Jason’s professional career hangs in the balance.

The final season of "The Game" airs June 3rd on BET at 10pm E/T.  Are you ready for kick off?

Nicki Minaj Covers Cosmopolitan July 2015 SEX Issue — Dishes On Demanding Orgasms, Motherhood & Ex-Boyfriend Safaree Samuels

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 31-05-2015

 photo cos1.jpg

Nicki Minaj is dishing a few dirty details on how she likes it in the bedroom for Cosmopolitan’s July 2015 SEX issue. Find out what she spilled on demanding orgasms, motherhood and her tough break-up with ex-boyfriend Safaree Samuels inside…

With her sometimes raunchy and sex-filled lyrics, it comes as no surprise Nicki Minaj is dishing a few deets on how she likes it in the bedroom in a new interview.

The “Feelin’ Myself” raptress covers Cosmopolitan’s July 2015 SEX issue where she opens up about demanding…not asking…an orgasm each and every time she’s involved in the act. In fact, she says all women should demand the exact same thing from their man. She spilled to the mag,

"I demand that I climax. I think women should demand that. I have a friend who’s never had an orgasm in her life. In her life! That hurts my heart. It’s cuckoo to me. We always have orgasm interventions where we, like, show her how to do stuff. We’ll straddle each other, saying, ‘You gotta get on him like that and do it like this.’ She says she’s a pleaser. I’m a pleaser, but it’s fifty-fifty."

 

Not mad. We assume her boyfriend Meek Mill is keeping her happy and laying the pipe…right.

 photo cos2.jpg

The Young Money femcee talked about her most personal album to date, The Pinkprint. During the time she was recording her third studio album, she broke up with her longtime boyfriend Safaree Samuels. And many of the songs on the LP revealed how she dealt with the break-up and the hurt she endured. She explained,

"I didn’t [set out] to write a personal album, but The Pinkprint came at a very crucial time in my life. I realized that people can up and take off at any given moment. As women, we are vulnerable and emotional, and that’s OK. I had to learn quickly that if you don’t have a sense of self, you can be destroyed by a man. You can be destroyed by a relationship. I had to ask myself, ‘Who am I? Is this good enough?’ I had to approve of myself and my skills."
 

 

 photo cos3.jpg

So in 10 years, will Nicki still be spitting rhymes and performing across the world? If she has it her way, no! She said in 10 years she will (hopefully) have a few children and be a housewife who works from the comfort of her home while raising her babies. She said,

"Ten years from now, I will have two children, unless my husband wants three. I will be into my fitness a lot more, I will stop yo-yo dieting, and I’ll be a housewife with careers that I can run from home. I want to be able to cook for my children, bake cookies for them, and watch them grow up. I just want to be Mommy. Take them to school, go to the parent-teacher conference, help them with their homework, and put their work on the refrigerator."
 

Pick up her issue when it hits newsstands June 9th.

While she still has a few years before settling down, in the meantime she’s continuing her world domination. Currently, she’s filming on the set of Barbershop 3 in Atlanta, so she snapped a few flicks for her fans while in her trailer today:

She captioned, "Who’s going to see #BarberShop3 ?????"

Gotta sell those movie tickets…by any means necessary.

Kelly Rowland made an appearance on the pink carpet at the “Diamonds In The Sky” event, hosted by Russell Simmons’ Diamond Empowerment Fund, in Las Vegas last night. Peep her pretty in pink pics inside….

Chick knows how to shine bright like a diamond.

Kelly Rowland brought the pretty in pink fabness at the “Diamonds in the Sky” fundraising event, hosted by Russell Simmons’ Diamond Empowerment Fund, at the Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas last night.

Styled by Lance Grossnew wife Rebecca Jefferson, the Dreft spokeswoman stunned on the carpet in a pink strapless Cushnie Et Ochs jumpsuit, baring a peek at her toned abs with a peek-a-boo midriff, and silver pumps before hitting the stage to perform. [Loving Kelly's look?  Buy it for yourself HERE, via EditedInChic.com!]

The gorgeous singer finished the chic look herself, doing her hair and doing her own make-up. Good Job.

While working the carpet, she showed off her dazzling diamond wedding ring:

The R&B songstress caught up with the Diamond Empowerment Fund co-found Russell Simmons. The twosome chopped it up and then snapped a fun flick. Ha! 

Check out a few clips of Kelly’s performance below:

Along with her Dreft partnership, Kelly will be starring in an upcoming BET series titled, "Chasing Destiny." No word on the premiere date just yet. She has also been spotted in the studio recently, so it looks like we might get a 5th album from the songbird. Life is good for the former Destiny’s Child member.

VIDEOS: Jamie Foxx Featuring Chris Brown "You Changed Me" + Chris POPS OFF About Royalty’s Chuck E. Cheese Party + Lil Mama’s "Sausage" Drama

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 31-05-2015

Chris Brown has a new video AND a new social media beef.  Watch him with Jamie Foxx on "You Changed Me" inside and see who he popped off on via Instagram. Also, check out Lil Mama’s "Sausage" video and the drama that has followed.

 

Jamie Foxx has released a visual for "You Changed Me” off his newly released album Hollywood: A Story of a Dozen Roses,
The X-directed clip centers around Jamie and his co-star Chris Brown settling down with the right women. Jamie’s love interest is played by Grace Gealy of “Empire.”

So….the video is about love. But let’s talk about the title: You Changed Me. Sigh…..if only Chris could "really" change. He’s back to his old "pop off" antics. Here’s the latest…. 

 photo deeeffvf.png

Little Royalty (who splits her time between Houston and LA) had her first birthday party recently. Momma Nia Guzman (below) took the kiddies to Chuck E. Cheese. Cool right? We think so….  But there’s been some controversy.  According to TMZ, Chris missed the party because he was in Miami on a video shoot. Meanwile, friends of Nia say she and her boyfriend, King Ba, paid for the whole thing.

On social media, fans and trolls attacked Chris for allegedly not funding or attending the function.

 photo cewcccc.png

One IG account called Chris out for the "cheapo" party. While we didn’t expect Chris to go rent out Disneyland, his response was typical Chris….and very crass.

 photo jdsdwwfew.png

It seems like Chris is defending the party (not that he has to) while also adding that Royalty will have another party (that he will throw).  We wonder if Karrueche will have come around by that time to help plan…

 photo wececwewcec.png

FYI – Jas Prince, the ex-fiance of Christina Milian (also a Houston native and reportedly close to Nia), was there too.

A video posted by Royalty (@royaltybrownofficial) on May 27, 2015 at 7:32pm PDT

 

 

In other new clips….

Lil Mama kicks off the summer with an homage to 90s videos and 80s style rap in "Sausage."  From vintage NYC brownstones, block parties, jump rope and voguing, Lil Mama puts her spin on classics visuals her favorite artists. She wears a black scarf around her head and rocks sunglasses like Mary J. Blige does in "Not Gon Cry," there’s a Michael Jackson "Smooth Criminal" scene and even a dance sequence from Madonna’s "Vogue."

The chorus goes: “Eggs, bacon, grits, sausage / You better use a condom if you takin’ it / All these broke ni**as that be on my sausage need to hop off”

So….it’s a song with a message? Shout out to TLC!  Over on social media, reaction to the video has been mixed at best. Plenty of fans and foes put in their two cents about not liking the track. 

Then there’s this.  Now….this could be "reaching", but Missy Elliott recently tweeted this and some folks on the net think it’s related to "Sausage"…

After you watch the video, it’s obviously that Lil Mama’s flow and video production is Missy-inspired.  But was Missy throwing shade?

Iggy Azalea Cancels U.S. Tour

Posted by | Posted in Da Game and Industry News | Posted on 31-05-2015

Iggy Azalea has opted not to tour the United States with her “Great Escape” tour, that traverses Northern America.

The tour had been pushed back a number of times but Friday May 29, it as put to rest like a diseased dog.

Her team released the following statement.

“To accommodate for creative team availability and tour production plans, it was determined that the tour will not be ready this spring,” Azalea’s team said at the time. “It is extremely important to Iggy that she delivers the show she envisaged to share with her fans and that requires more time in development… The tour getting pushed back only means that it’ll be way more amazing than it would’ve been in April. Good things take time.”

Refunds are available at point of purchase.

Never fret, Iggy has a new album and a new tour planned for 2016.

“There will be a new tour planned around Iggy’s new record to be released in 2016 and we apologize for any inconvenience.”

At.Long.Last.A$AP: The Album Review

Posted by | Posted in Da Game and Industry News | Posted on 31-05-2015

It’s about time A$AP Rocky released his new album. Ever since the song “Multiply” hit the web in the fall, several fans have been anticipated on the return of Pretty Flacko. Two years have passed since Rocky dropped his debut project Long.Live.A$AP, and a lot of things happened in between time. Nothing was more detrimental to the Harlem rapper than the death of A$AP Yams. The loss had affected A$AP Mob, with the Hip Hop community sending their blessings to the collective’s original co-founder. It also made an impact on this album as well. At.Long.Last.A$AP is a project that shows growth within A$AP Rocky. Although the Harlem rapper rose to stardom from being inspired by southern Hip Hop, his sophomore project is a diverse project with surprising sounds.

At.Long.Last.A$AP doesn’t start out as explosive as Rocky’s last album, but his lyrics hit you more this time around. The intro titled”Holy Ghost” creates an image of the injustices within the church in order to mirror A$AP’s climb to fame. Once that intro is finished, you plunge into an elusive world illustrates the creative perspective and human development of A$AP Rocky.

An important observation from listening to At.Long.Last.A$AP is the fact that the instrumentals has switched up a bit. Rocky became big off of implementing southern culture into New York Hip Hop, but this new album shows that he is diverse with his talents while still being able to maintaining that cloud sound. Songs like “Back Home” and “Max B” showcases a combination of rhymes and production that reminds us of old school Hip Hop. However, songs like “Electric Body”, “Lord Pretty Flacko Jodye 2″, “M’$” shows the  being the very few bangers on the album. And then, there’s a huge number of tracks that combines both elements like Canal St., the extremely clouded single “L$D”, and the literally “Trill” cut Wavybone, a song that features three artists that help influence Rocky’s sound, Texas-duo UGK and Juicy J, the former founder of Three 6 Mafia. Let’s not also forget that there’s a Kanye beat AND feature on At.Long.Last.A$AP as well.

Speaking of features, that’s also an area where Rocky went in a diverse route. Not only did he acquire features from modern rap stars like Kanye West, Future, Mos Def, and Lil Wayne, but he also went to the same outlet that made him big to look for artists: the Internet. That’s how you have a unique hook from LA-based rapper Bones. However, when it comes to the London singer Joe Fox being on a plethora of tracks on the album, Rocky just so happened to catch him on the street. Fox adds a mysterious element to A.L.L.A, using his vocals to serve as a constant narration throughout the project.

Instead of providing a bunch of hard rhymes and southern beats to create At.Long.Last.A$AP, A$AP Rocky takes advantage of several cultures to tell his story. He also does this with a pretty good lyrical flow as well, although most of the album is about money, fashion, drugs and women. There may be some songs that will fade out of listeners minds just due to the druggy sound and subject matter, At.Long.Last.A$AP is a project that shows A$AP Rocky’s progression from ASAP Mob’s uprising during the Trill-Wave era of Hip Hop. Yams would be proud.

Lyricism: 8/10


Production: 9/10


Cohesiveness: 8/10


Replay Value: 7/10


Overall: 8/10

Standout Tracks: “Electric Lady”, “Back Home”, “Canal St.”,”M’$”, “Jukebox Joints”
