For Memorial Day, V Magazine will be premiering a pretty big feature with Katy Perry & Madonna (in what looks like an S&M theme), and all we get to see for now are the above two sneak peaks. No worries, though…the Summer issue will be arriving soon.
The Roots — whose album …and then you shoot your cousin hits stores today — is currently on a promo run to promote the project.
Above, they stop by The Breakfast Club to speak on how they are viewed in Hip Hop history, the past and present members of the group and more. Apparently, one of ?uestlove’s many business ventures is an apparently part-ownership of the Soul Train franchise.
Below, you can also check out the Philly outfit’s town hall discussion with Sway on SiriusXM, where they pretty much break down their entire career….Black Thought even blesses the listeners with a crazy freestyle session.
Continuing their borderline hilarious attempt to calm down the media, JAY Z and Solange (along with Beyoncé and mother Tina Knowles) were spotted smiling in New Orleans recently, as can be seen from Beyoncé’s website.
TMZ is reporting a few additional details surrounding the pics as well: the now-notorious three apparently dined at Café Amelie, arriving with three SUVs and a lot of security to shut down photographers (the images above are courtesy of King Bey herself). The other shots also included the aforementioned Tina, Blue Ivy, Solange’s son Julez and her significant other Alan Ferguson.
A currently on-fire Nicki Minaj is gearing up to release her latest single, ‘Pills N Potions’. Below, she speaks on the new single while backstage at this year’s Powerhouse concert in California.
Meek Mill — who is currently gearing up for the release of his upcoming album, Dreams Worth More Than Money — recently appeared on Hot 97 to speak on new music, being a role model, his response to Kendrick Lamar’s control and more. He even reveals that he wrote a much more scathing diss at many of his peers; the track was (unfortunately) never released.
Check out some of the red carpet snapshots from this year’s Billboard Music Awards above. You can also check out performances from the show here.
Saturday Night Live was definitely focused on Hip-Hop last night (check out their skits based on JAY Z’s elevator run-in with Solange)…the above skit shows Tity Boi in the studio with none other than the Blizzard Man. Hilarious.
Leave it to Saturday Night Live, who decided to do their own skit showing JAY Z and Solange’s ‘attack’ was little more than a spider issue.
Drake was recently spotted at 5th Amendment in Houston on light DJ duty (check out some pics above, spotted on Word On Road)….during that time, he decided to bless the folks with a preview of some new music. This is going to be a hot Summer.
Above, Nicki Minaj speaks to Yahoo’s The Insider on her new single with Soulja Boy. Interestingly enough, did not mention her collaborator when explaining the song.
