(10/4/2010) The mad genius Kanye West has outdid himself once again with an electrifying performance of his hit single “Power”. Kanye’s original version went ‘f*ck SNL and the whole cast, Tell emâ€™ Yeezy said they can kiss my whole a**’. Well, this time, considering Yeezy was the guestÂ performerÂ on Saturday Night Live, Kanye replaced the insult with an entirely new verse, and it goes extra hard. This performance was basically a live performance of his “potrait” style video. You got to see it to know what we are talking about. The visual effects are mesmerizing. I got to give it to Kanye for this one. Check out the video below!!
Antoine Dodson will no longer be singing about rapists in the projects. He has moved up thanks to the fame of his auto-tuned 1#hit. Dodson earned half the profits ( over 250,000) from the song he made on itunes and was recently able to buy a home for his whole family with the money. I have to give it to Antoine he is the only person I know that claim to fame was a robbery / rape, only he wasn’t in the room; he was down stairs while all the craziness was happening but did catch the ending, and TV camera’s. While at the 2010 BET awards I talked to him, and he told me that he had alot of things that he was working on, but couldn’t tell me cause it was a secret. Just so yall know Antoine has a new album coming out, wig line and even Halloween costume, ya thats right Mr Dodson has a Halloween costumeÂ coming out. You can buy the costume Here… WOW I guess dreams do come true.

I hate that everyone is looking at Mario like he’s crazy and thats really not the case. MTV aired a special on October 21, “I Won’t Love You to Death: The Story of Mario and His Mom,” which dealt with his mother’s heroin addiction. The documentary is about how the singer strives for help to stop his mother’s addiction. While doing this, Mario seeked help from family and friends. Mario wrote a letter to his mother stating how appreciative he is and begs her to stop her addiction. At the end of the letter he says, “I love you, but I won’t love you to death”. The documentary, produced by Gigantic! Productions, won a 2008 Prism Award for its accurate portrayal of drug abuse. Mario has also written a song titled Do Right that is dedicated to his mother. This song explains his mother’s addiction and how it affected his childhood. The song is featured on his third album Go. I have to tell yall dealing with a parent on drugs this really tuched me watch the video and tell me what yall think!!!! Read More »

Nelly is getting ready to release his new album in November, and says that’s where his heart belongs. He tells UsMagazine.com that he’s single right now because his focus is on that record. Nelly says, quote, “I’m dating something unbelievable. She is so sexy, she is a new girl. I’ve been dating her now for a couple of months… She’s called ’5.0′ and we get married on November 16th.” The name of his new record is in fact “Nelly 5.0.” All joking aside, Nelly says he’s single right now. The St. Louis rapper says, quote, “I’m not married or anything like that. It’s more about making sure ’5.0′ is where it needs to be.” Nelly’s current single, “Just A Dream,” is sitting at number seven on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.
When asked if he and Ashanti are 100% split after being together a long time, Nelly asked who even said they were a couple in the first place? Nelly said:
“Who said that? Well what have we always said? Of course I’m single. I’m not married, she’s not married.”
“Here’s the thing. I’ve never said I’m in a relationship, she’s never said she’s in a relationship. I don’t know where they do that at. But we’ve always admitted to being friends.
He then gushed about how great of a girl she is:
“We hang out. She’s a very sweet girl. Very pretty girl. Very talented. She does her thing as far as her career and I do my thing as far as mine.”
