Dues Paid

Another day, another female rapper on the rise having a breakdown on twitter. This time it’s Azealia Banks proclaiming she is “done” with rap. Apparently Azealia feels like she has paid her dues even though she doesn’t even have an album out. Sigh what dues have you paid Azealia? First she has a beef with Lil Kim because Kim didn’t want to rap the lyrics she wrote and takes it upon herself to act as if she was done wrong and now she is upset that the “urban” media isn’t kissing her ass. What happen to people understanding you have to crawl before you walk?  Good luck with that one, because if you think that mainstream is going to treat you any better you are in for a wake up call. Any new artist has to prove themselves and rightfully so that is not just in music. It’s with any you go after in life. Don’t let those Europeans hype you up and force you to cash a check you are not prepared to write yet. Anyway the um artist released her Liquorice video off her 212 mixtape.

Made Man

Jay-z  finally answers the call in my head to have a Hip Hop artist start a festival. For years the major festivals that hip hop and R&B stars have broken into are rock-based festivals. Well Jay-z partnered with Budweiser to begin the Made in America festival starting in September. The hip hop legend announced the festival right before he headed off the Europe for the Watch the Throne tour. The festival will take place over the two-day Labor Day holiday and 29 artist will take the stage , with Jay-z, Odd Future, Santigold, and Pearl Jam will headline. Rita Ora will also be featured during the event that will also serve to raise money for the Penn-Jersey area of the United Way.

Love, Life and NO Music?

Letoya Luckett released another installment of her webseries Love, Life and Music however the music seems to be a non factor at this time. This time Letoya focused on her budding friendship with former Destiny Child’s singer Michelle Williams. I know I am supposed to be floored by Letoya befriending the girl who was chosen to replace her but I don’t care to be honest. They all have buried those hatches years ago and clearly all still care for one another outside of Farrah. Anyway watch the video below and tell us what you think about this episode in comments or @mediamyxx @akireshenri


PS: I have so much inspiration from Letoya’s bedroom, I love the seafoam green and her headboard

Michelle Williams Reheard The Word

Destiny’s Child Alumnae Michelle Williams announced she has a new record deal with Light Records and once again will re-enter the world of Gospel. After an ill-advised try at pop music Michelle is connecting back to the world that made her famous. Michelle was the artist that Mathew Knowles started Music World gospel for as her two CD’s Heart to Yours and Do You Know were staples on the gospel charts allowing Williams to have an identity outside of Destiny’s Child. On top of her gospel work Williams has enjoyed success on broadway in Aida, The Color Purple and Chicago. Read more about Michelle’s new endeavor here  and tell us what you think in comments or @mediamyxx @akireshenri

Nas is Like

Nas drops the cover to his heavily anticipated album Life is Good coming out on Def Jam and the Queen’s MC once again keeps em talking. The rapper poses with a nod to ex-wife Kelis’s green wedding dress sitting on his lap sending the internet in overdrive. In Nas’s Behind the Music, Nas talks about how Kelis took everything from him minus her green wedding dress she left hanging in the closet. He symbolically is sending the message she took everything but this dress and Life is still good. I love it ,so glad to have him back on the scene dropping dope songs with actual messages and of course looking sexy while doing so. Are you going to buy the rap legend’s album? Look at the cover below and hit us up in comments or @mediamyxx @akireshenri

Kelly Rowland X-out

After multiple rumors we can confirm Kelly Rowland will not be returning to the Uk’s X-factor. It’s not clear if the other judges will be back as well but Kelly is out. Kelly’s stint on the show is the new excuse her fans used for her underperforming album. This was Kelly’s first album that didn’t hit top 4 for her in the UK even though she was in their living rooms. Allegedly Kelly is huge in the UK but her numbers say otherwise. Kelly is currently working on her 3rd CD and co-starring on Lala’s show on Vh1. Tell us what you think about the departure in comments or @mediamyxx @akireshenri
