Aly & AJ Lean – Listen!

After long enough
My lips grow cold
I can call your bluff
But it just gets old

I tried to empathize
But you’re so dismissive
Night after night
I express what I feared from the start

[Chorus:]
That your heart would never listen
I’m feelin’ like I’m a hostage here
It’s clear something went missing (Missing)
I might be lost but I know my way out

Ah-ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah-ah

You can turn on a dime
Even when I’m careful
I tell myself all the time
That you’re just forgetful

I tried to empathize
Still, you’re so dismissive
Night after night
I express what I feared from the start

[Chorus:]
That your heart would never listen (Listen)
I’m feelin’ like I’m a hostage here
It’s clear something went missing (Missing)
I might be lost but I know my way out

Ah-ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah-ah

Ah-ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah-ah

[Chorus:]
That your heart would never listen (Listen)
I’m feelin’ like I’m a hostage here
It’s clear something went missing (Missing)
I might be lost but I know my way out (Know my way out)

Ah-ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah-ah (Know my way out)
Ah-ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah-ah (Said I know my way out)
Ah-ah-ah-ah (Know my way out)

Audrey Mika – Excuses

When you ask where I’ve been
I said I’m just sleeping in
‘Cause I just wanted to talk to you
didn’t know where to begin

‘Cause you wanna know what I’m thinking
but I don’t really know what I’m saying
with you no I don’t have to fake it
Don’t wanna mess this up
Don’t wanna open up

[Chorus:]
All my excuses are useless
You see right through
Why do I do this
I’m new to this, deja vu
I’d open up but
I don’t trust
Yeah I want to
Cut the excuses
Cause the truth is

Cut the excu-
na na na na na na na
Cut the excuses
na na na na na na na
Cut the excu-
na na na na na na na

I’m always shutting you out
Each time you’re coming around
‘Cause every time I get close
Somebody’s letting me down

Maybe I shoulda mentioned
That I have never done this before
I only have good intentions
Don’t wanna mess this up
I wanna open up

[Chorus:]
All my excuses are useless
You see right through
Why do I do this
I’m new to this, deja vu
I’d open up but
I don’t trust
Yeah I want to
Cut the excuses
Cause the truth is

Cut the excu-
na na na na na na na
Cut the excuses
na na na na na na na
Cut the excu-
na na na na na na na

All my excuses
deja vu
I’d open up but I
I want to
Cut the excuses

Just walk her out the door
Somehow, you let her walk this every
Time you came home, see fortunes the floor, and
So you do like you do, you break her heart
You try to go around to win back her heart

Persuading unhappy time [?]
Call me on my bluff cause really
No rational, and fall to the floor
So, you do like you do

You try to walk around a diamond and win back her heart

POM POKO – My Candidacy

[New single lyrics from Pom Poko, My candidacy]

You don’t have to believe
If you want it, here’s the key
Secured
You reverse almost every room inside of me
You’re all cool, your recognition
Is all I need, all I need
Any chance to attach, I’ll take it this
Please believe

Goodbye, my friend
Go out, explore
Say I don’t need you at all
Go out, explore, go back again
You are the candidate I love.

POM POKO – Andrew

[New song lyrics from Pom Poko, Andrew]

Sometimes I just wanna hold you
Look at you, a light and different species
And hoping that the plant is grounded
I’ll put all my fingers in sheen

Love is the, love is the , love is the
The answer
Love is the, love is the , love is the
The answer

Andrew, look how they all surround you
Round you
See through,

‘fore you
Andrew, look how they all surround you.

Somehow always looking for you
Watching when your story fills in the screen
And I repeat your ways and your language
While pulling out my fingers, try to come clean.

Love is the, love is the , love is the love

Andrew, look how they all surround you
Round you
See through,
[??] before you
‘fore you
Andrew, look how they all surround you.

POM POKO – Cheater

[New single lyrics by Pom Poko, Cheater]

I thought I was your secret
That something you’d show, something kinda special
and someday you’d know
Expression on my face you can see that I’m smart
A mystery girl with an open heart

But dream on, dream on
Dream on, dream on
Dream on, dream on
Dream on, my all was never enough

Next time, I’ll cheat
I will

They say I have potential, just give it some work
And tell me that I’m lacy, and that really hurt
If I don’t try harder, I’ll never unfold
And what it’s the secret when it’s never told?

So dream on, dream on
Dream on, dream on
Dream on, dream on
Dream on, my all was never enough

Next time, I’ll cheat
I will

If you don’t let me know it
Let me know it
Let me know

I will, I will
I will

Faith & The Muse – The Trauma Coil Lyrics

Another night down on the catherine wheel
Drawn into a corner
A symphony of resounding shrieks in my head
I court a sure, sudden death
But give no quarter
A paper soul tears the heart from the mind
Searing is the morning, a tenement of lights
Lost inside the attic
On the floor again with a head full of rain
Wander with the shadows of shelter and smiles
Bleeding in a stairwell
Fever-staggered steps and a mouth so dry
Three liquid words collapse
Blind and chasing sirens
Five years of night time and a heart made of tin
Allow your sympathies the length of a table
I recognize no brother
Lash out at their smiles and walk in through their eyes

As my knowledge, does the knowing
Split my being from past days
In decision, in departing
In the severance of old ways
With precision, in my silence
I perceive the bitter still
Imposition, these young calling
Withered kisses, or the kill?
Together we stand
We stand so still
Indifference, hollow laughter
Bathes the walls of this lost home
So futile, all attempts
Affectations, long to roam
Ever spinning, vile actress
Answered blindly to the call
The price, child yet again we sit
And watch our private rome fall
I am not well
No, not well at all

New Photos Of Mavado’s Son Dante In Prison Surfaced Ahead Of Murder Case Verdict

Some new photos of Mavado’s embattled son Dante Brooks behind bars are making the rounds online.

It has been a tough couple of years for Mavado’s son Dante Brooks, who has been spending time behind bars since 2018. The younger Brooks is currently on trial for a murder charge in connection to an incident in Cassava Piece, Kingston, in 2018. According to authorities, the murder of Lorenzo Thomas is in reprisal to a shooting incident in the community a few days prior when Mavado was shot at allegedly by Thomas and his associates.

Thankfully, Dante’s trial is now underway following some delay. The outcome of the trial is still unsure, but while speaking to The Star, Peter Champagnie QC highlighted that the prosecution is still presenting its case.

“The prosecution is still presenting its case, and the main witnesses are still being cross-examined. I can’t say for sure how long the trial will run, but I am expecting it to continue for at least two weeks. Are quite a number of witnesses to be questioned, and so it’s still early days yet for a verdict,” the teen’s lawyer said following courthouse proceedings a few days ago.

There are now leaked images of Dante, taken from the juvenile facility in Kingston, where he is currently housed. The three photos show the youngster throwing up gangs while posing amongst other inmates. The young Brooks and his co-accused continue to defend his freedom against charges including arson, murder, and illegal possession of firearm and ammunition.

Still, the recent images of Brooks seem to show that he is still maintaining some degree of optimism as he fights for his freedom. His dad is also showing him tremendous support on social media through a number of posts to his Instagram account and a mention of his impending arrival in one of his recent songs, “Not Perfect.”

Dante’s legal team opted for trial by a judge as opposed to traditional murder trials with judge and jury. It should be interesting to see how this one turns out.

Katy Perry – Playing House Lyrics

Play this song

We can’t keep playing house
With such a big world outside
How do we shut it out?
At a fork in the road
Should I stay or should I go?
I’ll keep the cat
Leave a spare under the mat
If you need to crash one day

Cause I know we swore forever
But it seems so far away
Don’t you think we’re just too young
To play these grown up games?

Cause you know me too well
It’d be like me lying to myself
But I’m so scared to be alone
And go back to sleeping with the lights on

Cause I can be myself
Drunk or sober fat proactive poster
Wouldn’t it be nice
If we were older
Cause I know we swore forever
But it seems so far away
Don’t you think we’re just too young
To play these grown up games

Some days I wanna take my chances
Not live so modernized
Some day I wanna be a Mrs
But it’s not yet quite right
No it’s not yet quite right

So there go our future children’s names
I put the rest of us in a box in the closet
That I cannot open without getting full
Full of emotion
Because you know I loved you
You know I loved you
You know I loved you
You know I loved you
You know I loved you

Cause I know we swore forever
But it seems so far away
Don’t you think we’re just too young
To play

One day I wanna take my chances
Not live so modernized
One day I wanna be a Mrs
But it’s not yet quite right
No it’s not yet quite right
No it’s not yet quite right

Juice WRLD & Marshmello – Bad Energy (Marshmello & Diplo Remix) Lyrics

[Intro]
Uh, uh, uh-uh, uh-uh, uh, uh
(Daytrip took it to ten, hey!)

[Verse 1]
Swallow all these pills with my pride (Uh)
Married to my highs, you may kiss the bride
Trouble in my brain, see it in my eyes
I got voices in my head, they keep me up at night
Said I was okay, but I’m lying, feel like that I’m dying
Soul screaming and crying, feel my brain frying
Try to numb the pain, all the drugs I’ve been buying
This oxy gettin’ pricey, pour the codeine in the Hi-C
Blood red blend in the Hi-C
I’ve been doing so much wrong, even though ma told me to do the right thing
Poppin’ pills all night long, in the studio pourin’ out my feelings
Can’t explain this feeling
Kinda feels like I’m losing even though I’m winning

[Drop 1]
(Memories)
(Memoriеs)
(Ooh-ooh)
(Memories)
(Forget thе bad memories)
Drain out bad energy (Drain out bad energy)
Forget the bad memories (Forget the bad memories)

[Verse 2]
Multi-million dollars
All mine from the start
Codeine kills the drama
And the trauma in my heart
Just got a call from the dark side
Stab wounds in my chest, but I’m alright
I miss my friends, I hate this spotlight
I love my girl, I hate the thot life
Yellow diamonds, shiny pearls
I’m tryna give her the world
I’m tryna show her the world
She ain’t no ordinary girl
I know she know, I know she know I’m down and out
Life is a ocean, demons I’ve been drownin’ out
I watch the crowd and crack a smile
I have a job to lead them out

[Drop 2]
Drain out bad energy (Drain out bad energy)
Forget the bad memories (Forget the bad memories)
Drain out bad energy (Drain out bad energy)
Forget the bad memories (Forget the bad memories)

(Oh, oh, oh-oh, oh-oh)

Nixons – Sacred Heart Lyrics

A place without a name
A heart that’s wrapped in chains
I hear a broken cry
There’s nothing here but what’s in your mind
And down a dark road through an open gate
That seemed to move alone
Myth or truth is so hard to say
Still it chills my heart
Sacred heart

Snow yields to rain
And somehow I never felt us change
I’m running for the son
A quiet home above

Down a pathway through an open gate
That seemed to move alone

There the truth is so hard to say
Still it chills my heart
I couldn’t tell you everything
There’s something I should keep for my own
I couldn’t tell you everything
Got secrets that you wouldn’t want to know

A place without a name
A heart that’s wrapped in fairytale chains
I’m running for the son
A quiet home above
Sacred heart

Do not be afraid of
It’s only dark
I’m freezing
From the heart
Sacred Heart

Druski Gets Drake & Lil Yachty In Their Feelings Over Instagram Snub

Drake is trolling Druski after he leaves the rapper out of his homage post.

Druski has been a popular figure online these days with his comedic bits and celebrity associations. Recently, the social media personality took to Instagram to share a photo reel of him and some of those famous faces and his loaded caption incited reactions from rappers like Drake and Lil Yachty.

In the post, which had pictures of stars like OBJ, G Herbo, Jack Harlow, and more, Druski implied that any absentees were also absent from his life. “If you don’t see ’em in the pictures with me, that mean they faded away…,” he wrote. Lil Yachty was among those who took offense writing, “Swear I just faded away.”

Drake also chimed in on the matter scribing, “Wow the fact I’m not in this bullshit ass post,” he commented. Druski’s recent success comes after he made an appearance in Drake’s “Laugh Now, Cry Later” music video. It seems the Toronto rapper was a bit more vexed about the post than his initial comment implied. He went on to rant some more about the slight and even shaded Druski for capping on his celebrity affiliations while he was at it.

“The pic of you and Herbo from the airport pickup location he not even really knowing who u are all the way look at his eyes,” the rapper wrote. “The only thing that needs fading away is your sideburn into your beard,” he added in a separate comment. The hilarious jab garnered thousands of likes and got the attention of the comedian, who later shared screenshots of his Facetime conversations with both Drake and Lil Yachty.

While neither rapper seemed enthused or amused at the very least, Druski wanted fans to know that everything was good between him and them. “N***as want SMOKE behind that last caption,” he wrote alongside the photos. “LOVE YALL BOYS MAN 4LIFERSSSS.”

Do you think Druski overlooked a famed hip-hop music titan like Drake inadvertently or with intent?

Reggae Artiste George Nooks Bail Extended To March 4 As Cocaine Case Drags On

George Nooks will have some more time as a free man after his bail was extended until March 4. The decision was made after he appeared in the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court in Half-Way-Tree on January 13.

One of his attorneys Tom Tavares-Finson QC, confirmed the latest development with the Jamaica Observer. He said, “It [the case] was sent for mention to complete disclosure. His bail was extended to March 4.”

George Nooks, who is charged with possession of cocaine and attempting to pervert the course of justice, is also being represented by attorneys Donahue Martin, Christopher Townsend, and Kaysain Kennedy of the Corporate Area-based TWP Attorneys-at-Law.

He was arrested for an April 2019 incident, and in October 2020, he spent a night in police lock-up while his vehicle, a Mercedes-Benz GL 450 SUV, was seized. It was eventually returned to him. At the time, Nooks expressed his dissatisfaction with how that incident was handled.

One of his attorneys, Donahue Martin, said, “He’s happy to get back his vehicle. But we take issue that it was taken in the first place because they had no need to take the vehicle. We take issue with a lot of the circumstances of his arrest and subsequent detention,” while speaking to the Jamaica Observer as well.

He added, “We had to go to the court and told the judge to withdraw the application as it was returned to us… They had searched the vehicle and returned it to us.”

According to the charges leveled against Nooks, he’s accused of ingesting “some substance” after being held by the police in Liguanea, St Andrew, in April 2019. He was taken to Kingston Public Hospital for observation and released. This isn’t his first brush with the law as the “God is Standing By” singer was freed of a similar charge on May 21, 2019.

Beenie Man Performed At Dwyane Wade’s 39th Birthday Celebration

Beenie Man helped Dwyane Wade celebrate his 39th birthday in dancehall style.

Beenie Man is proving that age is just a number and that he is still a very much requested entertainer. The veteran deejay recently shared that he was invited to be a guest performer at retired NBA player Dwyane Wade’s birthday celebration yesterday, Sunday, January 17.

Early this morning, January 18, Beenie Man shared a short clip of his performance and a photo with Wade and his wife, well-known actress Gabrielle Union. He captioned the post, “Earth day blessings to my brother @dwyanewade, more life & blessings. Respect & love to @gabunion. Tonight was one for the books!”

In the video clip of his performance, he can be heard performing one of his most popular international tracks, “Sim Simma”, while the Wades maintain a safe distance away from him on a beach at the celebration. While the couple dances in front of a bonfire, Beenie shouts out “Happy birthday” to Wade during his performance. The location of the party wasn’t shared.

Dwyane Wade, also expressed his satisfaction and excitement with the King of Dancehall’s performance as he replied in the comments under Beenie Man’s post, “Legend!!!! I was speechless brother. Thanks for the love.”

A post shared by King Beenie Man (@kingbeenieman)

The “Girls Dem Sugar” singer is working on releasing another studio album called “Simma.” Last year, 2020, he announced that it would be delayed because of developments in his personal life, like the fact that he lost his mother.

In an Instagram post at that time, he said, “SIMMA #TheAlbum. Blessings my fans, mi see the messages, the emails, the questions and the calls! We had to push back the album release due to all the personal unexpected challenges. You know I give you my best at all times and I wanted to ensure I was in the best space mentally & emotionally before I dropped the album. LIKE I SAID THOUGH, BACK TO BUSINESS AS USUAL.”

The album, which was originally supposed to be released on his birthday, August 22, will be his 19th studio album. His last release was named Undisputed and was released 13 years ago. His 2000 album Art And Life earned him the Grammy award for Best Reggae Album that year.

Solange’s Teenage Son Julez Reveals Breakup With Skai Jackson Over Cheating

Solange’s 16-year-old son Julez Smith is making headlines for allegedly exposing actress Skai Jackson amidst a nasty break-up.

It was recently revealed that Julez Smith, the teenage son of Solange Knowles, used to date Disney star Skai Jackson and apparently, it did not end well. In spite of their two-year age difference, Julez was reportedly in a relationship with Skai, and she allegedly cheated on him, causing him to “ruin her life.” Plenty of folks are surprised since hardly anyone knew they were dating.

In a series of leaked screenshots that is evidently from a group chat with Julez, the 16-year-old revealed that he and Skai were involved in a sexual relationship, and she was unfaithful. The crass dialogue somehow managed to victimize and villainize Julez at the same time.

“She cheated [ofc] I left.” Julez allegedly wrote. The other group participants began to investigate the details of the controversy, and one referenced a recent post by Skai asking, “Why she talking about ‘throw libra men away’ if shes the one that cheated?” In response, Julez allegedly said, “I made sure to ruin her life.” He went on to explain what he meant by telling the group, “I fu**ed her good and got her addicted and then left her. It’s complicated.”

A post shared by King Spam Barb (@king_spamerella)

When one friend questioned how Julez could have slept with Skai considering their age difference, he replied, “Ni**a age don’t matter.” Later a video surfaced online of Skai being poked in the crotch, which many believe equates to revenge porn.

While the details of the slanderous fallout between the young couple remain scattered and unclear, it is at least blatantly apparent that the split was not amicable. In a since-deleted Instagram Q&A, Julez was asked if he and Skai are still friends, to which he responded, “F**k no.”

Keep your eyes peeled for more on this teenage love story gone wrong.

Chip Reignites Stormzy Beef With “10 Commandements” Diss Track: Beef Detailed

Chip reignites his beef with Stormzy with a new diss track, “10 Commandments.”

Even with just a pinch of familiarity about what is happening in the UK’s Grime scene, you should still be able to identify the names of the rappers waging war against each other. That’s how massive of a deal this is! The names include veteran Wiley, Stormzy, and Chip, formerly Chipmunk. As legend would have it, Stormzy has found himself involved in a beef with both men at different intervals within the same year.

Wiley was the first on the bill, as he and Stormzy traded some pretty harsh words on Twitter and on feverish diss tracks such as ‘Disappointed’ and ‘Eediyat Skengman.” Both men called for clashes in February 2020, with Wiley proposing a throwdown at the O2 arena and Stormzy opting for a set on the radio. Throughout their war of words, Wiley accused Stormzy of being a sellout for collaborating with pop acts such as Ed Sheran, among others. The tensions would eventually die down after no clear direction and location for a clash being decided among the two. Another beef blossom shortly thereafter, as Stormzy and Chip began to trade words.

Why Are Chip and Stormzy Beefing?

For many fans, it’s hard to decipher just why there is tension beef between Chip and the proclaimed King of Grime since both men have collaborated in the past. Chip released “Waze” in March of last year, which was supposedly a diss track aimed at Bugzy Malone. Apparently, Stormzy thought the bars were aimed at him and responded 2 months later with a diss track of his own titled “I Dunno,” in which he questions Chip’s motives.

In October, things escalated after video footage showed that Stormzy and his associates had visited Chip’s flat in June. “When you get sent a video of Stormzy & friends tryna run up on your house,” the “Every Gyal” rapper wrote. The unveiling of the video was timed perfectly with the release of “Flowers,” a hard-hitting diss track from Chip.

As for the video of his visit, Stormzy can be heard saying “Telephone me, innit”

Chip’s manager Ashley Rae-Tapping, who lives on the same block as her client, could be heard shouting to Stormzy has he walked away. “You think you can just pull up to people’s houses? No I ain’t gonna phone you, Stormzy. You’re disrespectful and that’s that.”

“Stormzy pulled unannounced to Chip’s building with 3 other people, the building which I also lived in but a separate apartment. The building was secure with gates… he didn’t knock he came in and was posted in the car park screaming for Chip to come outside. After being told to leave twice as Chip wasn’t home he refused and made his way to Chip’s apartment on the top floor where family were inside and it got heated and he caused a commotion so I called the police and so did the neighbours.” Ashley Rae-Tapping wrote on social media.

There have now been numerous calls from fans in the GRIME community for Stormzy to show Chip the same level of ferocity that he showed Wiley last year. This follows the January 15 release of “10 Commandments,” which is yet another Stormzy track from Chip. 41 one-year-old Wiley has now joined in on the conversation, using a video to explains why he thinks Stormzy is scared of his new rival.

Stormzy can’t ever go bar for bar with chip, he had so much energy for Wiley, where’s that same energy loool

— H (@14_HK_) January 16, 2021

Stormzy Fans believe Chip’s advances are simply to help him move more unit sales/streams, and their hero is actually the victim in the situation. What do you think about his?

Monthly bases!! Chipmunk moving like them hungry mans from the ends that never make it…everytime they go broke they come try it with the weak ones…..everytime chip needs to sell some shit just violate stormzy ??? stormzy the victim!! @Fisha1718 @adydrilla @a_standfield

How sure are you that he doesn’t care ? everyone cares when ? comes flying and is forced to handle it two ways FIGHT OR FLIGHT. Stormzy made the wiser choice.

Bow Wow Thinks Houston’s Mayor Using Him As Scapegoat Amid COVID-19 Superspreader Event

Bow Wow seems to be of the view that the mayor of Houston is using his as scapegoat amid backlash over a COVID-19 superspreader event he performed at last weekend.

Bow Wow is not just facing backlash for his recent event in Houston from fans but from Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner as well. The rapper has responded by saying that he thinks he’s being singled out. Clips of his performance surfaced on Twitter and drew the ire of many people who felt he had behaved selfishly as many of the patrons seen in the club were not wearing masks or socially distanced.

Following the circulation of the clip, the mayor expressed his disappointment with the incident and the fact that he thinks the club should face some repercussions for allowing the concert. Mayor Turner tweeted, “These events that are scheduled with @BowWowPromoTeam today in Houston are on our radar. Other bars/clubs that are operating as restaurants, beyond capacity and social distancing requirements, please expect visits. Today we report 1964 new cases and 17 more deaths. St.”

In a later tweet, he said that he wanted it to be made clear that he had nothing personal against the rapper but that it was simply a matter of accountability. Turner made the statement after Bow Wow tweeted that he thinks that the mayor hates him.

“Let me be very clear. I don’t dislike @BowWowPromoTeam. While the city is in the midst of this pandemic nearly 2000 infected and 17 dying yesterday, this is not the time for concerts. Help us get past this virus and then do your thing. The same for other bars & clubs. st.”

Bow Wow responded using his Instagram Stories, where he displayed the mayor’s tweets. “Someone tell the Mayor of Houston TX Im leaving right now. Geeeeez,” he said. “He singling me out as if I was the only celeb here this weekend this is ridiculous,” he added.

He also took to Twitter to express his frustration. “Safe to say the mayor of houston hates my guts. I cant believe i get the blame for a whole weekend. This is ridiculous,” he posted.

Safe to say the mayor of houston hates my guts. I cant believe i get the blame for a whole weekend. This is ridiculous.

— Bow Wow (@smoss) January 18, 2021

Bow Wow’s argument is that other artistes namely Fabolous and Trey Songz, also threw concerts this weekend in Houston and weren’t singled out as he was. Though it could be said that only Bow Wow’s concert clip surfaced on Twitter, showing blatant disrespect for the coronavirus protocols.

Young Buck Details How Beef With 50 Cent Started And Got Worst

Young Buck and 50 Cent beef is perhaps one of those mystery falling outs that we’re yearning to hear the back story of.

Of course, being one of the most infamous rap beefs of the past decade has to have an origin. Young Buck opened up about his feud with 50 Cent during a recent interview with VLAD TV. He painted a holistic picture of what inspired them to part ways and how it escalated as well. They still don’t talk following their spat, which, according to Young Buck, began because of a disagreement over what type of management the collective should follow.

Going further back, he said their major disagreement started after Sha Money XL was fired. Money was the manager at the time but he was fired after he and 50 Cent had a disagreement about funds. “They issues was, from my understanding, about money. And, 50 immediately started to bring me and the guys together in the rooms and office like “Look, ya’ll gon’ have to find another manager. At the time, Sha was the president of the company, the manager of me, Banks and Yayo, he wore so many f***ing different hats bro,” Buck added.

He explained that from that point, 50 Cent, and Money started arguing over other things, and that made everyone uncomfortable. “And then all of a sudden, him and 50 stop seeing eye to eye for whatever reason, which put me in a position where I had to make a decision on where I’m going to continue with him being my manager or not when 50 just told all of us that we needed to find new management.”

His refusal to part ways with the manager caused a rift between him and 50. He said that 50 began to leave him out of shows and even stopped his second album from being fully marketed. He also went on to explain how and why The Game was also thrown out of the group. Check out the interview below.

Constantines – Steal This Sound Lyrics

File those nails and clip those wings
‘Cause it’s curtains for the cretins when they cut these strings
It’s some missionary complex that keeps me testifying
It’s time we steal these pennies back from the fountain

We stole our voice from the Cigarette City underground
We dug this noise from the gospel soil at Jonestown
Our party employs no politician
Our feuds are not commissioned
We may not eat tonight

We’ve sharpened our teeth, and we’ve made our lists
Have you ever been haunted by the little shaking fists?
It’s some missionary complex that keeps me testifying
It’s time we steal these pennies back from the fountain

Soon as they turn out the lights, the cradle’s gonna rock tonight

All the carpenters say: “I give you my only-ness, come and give me your tomorrow.”

Jada Kingdom Gives Spice Her Flowers: “Thanks My Mentor”

Jada Kingdom homage Spice calling her a mentor and Spice is showing gratitude for the acknowledgement.

Over the last three years, Jada Kingdom has successfully managed to become a dominant force in the music business. This has ultimately led to her securing high profile features from the likes of Vybz Kartel, Skillibeng, and American rapper Asian Doll, as well as work with UK heavyweight Toddla T.

The “Heavy” singer who now resides in the United States, seems to be enjoying a brilliant run of form with numerous performances. This weekend was no different, and after what seemed like a pretty thrilling performance in West Palm Beach, Florida, Jada decided to reveal the Jamaican entertainer who inspired her confident rump-shaking abilities, beauty, tenacity, and overall artistry.

“A million thanks to my mentor @spiceofficial i love you queen,” wrote Jada, before highlighting that she is not scared to give credit to those who have paved the way for her. “Nuff artist nuh wah big up who come before dem & give credit to who dem learn from…mi nave dat inna mi.”

Spice, who also lives in Atlanta, Georgia, decided to express love and gratitude to her young protege’ via a truly heartfelt caption. She also used the opportunity to accentuate that she has inspired many others who have failed to show their respect.

“Thanks @jadakingdom your appreciation means alot to me. In all my years in this industry I’ve never been tagged by a female artist to say they watched and learned anything from me. You told me even on Club house that you use to sit and watch my performances and look at you now, mashing up every where you go. Big up uself Mumma heavy your heart speaks volume I’m a big fan I’m so proud of you and your growth is impeccable,” wrote the crowned Queen Of Dancehall.

The imitation of styles, whether it be through fashion, method of recording, or stage performances without proper acknowledgment of the originator, has long been a major cause of issues among members of the industry. One of the longest-running beefs in dancehall’s history between veterans Beenie Man and Bounty Killer started because Beenie copied a melodic rift from one of Bounty’s early tracks. This was also a cause for concern when Beenie copied Hawkeye’s talking flow on his track “Reasoning” in the early 2000s. In the modern era, we have witnessed Alkaline being accused of piracy by Vybz Kartel, and more recently, Govana defending his comedic approach against Busy Signal’s call for ‘ownership’.

In the dying days of December 2020, Spice was the recipient of a nasty smear campaign initiated by her former spiritual advisor and artiste Nardo “RT Boss” Smith. According to Smith, Spice did not hold her end of the bargain to offer him guidance and assistance to grow his music career. It’s definitely a refreshing feeling to see positivity being shared among members of the musical fraternity.

Beenie Man & Krystal Tomlinson Announces Split: “This chapter on love… is closed”

Beenie Man and Krystal Tomlinson announced their breakup.

Beenie Man and Krystal Tomlinson are no longer together, as the politician and motivational speaker confirmed via her social media account that she has parted ways with the King of the Dancehall. They were previously engaged to be married and have a two-year-old daughter, Xiah. In January 2020, the couple had teased that they planned to marry when their daughter starts walking. Beenie Man had also said he had started the divorce process to end his legal marriage to Michelle ‘D’Angel’ Downer.

However, the former PNPYO President dashed the hopes of fans who were rooting for them. She made the announcement on her Instagram account, “Five years and folding. Part of growth is knowing when things have come to an end,” she said in a caption that accompanied a black and white photo of the two.

She added, “knowing not to force it. Knowing to let it be. Leaving while there is love and not waiting until it is dry, empty, and full of animosity. Knowing to choose peace and trusting that all things work together for our good.”

It seems that the couple has hit hard times but has tried their best to keep it out of the public domain, although fans who follow their lives noticed the change. Krystal has been very active on social media, but she has not posted Beenie Man lately and has since removed many of the photos of the two of them from her account on Instagram. Only one photo from October remains. Photos of the artist’s children were also removed as well as videos of what seems like a good relationship she built with the children over the years.

Her break-up status said, “I’ve remained silent for a while on this question not to keep a secret but to get clear, certain and centred. I am clear. I am certain. I am centred. This chapter on love, written with love, is closed,” she announced with finality.

A post shared by Krystal Tomlinson ?? (@krystaltomlinson)

There were mixed reactions to fans as some referenced the positive impact Tomlinson had on Beenie Man, whose real name is Moses Davis. She reportedly assisted Davis to quit smoking and even influenced his healthy lifestyle choices and working out. “Sad to see but we saw the difference you made in his life. Your peace and happiness is what truly matters,” one fan commented.

Meanwhile, the Grammy Award-winning artist also confirmed the shocking news via a video on his Instagram account that was captioned “moving forward,” as he showed himself speaking to other men. The men reacted in shock as Beenie Man casually announced, “Serious topic now, People, Oh God, how we ago do this now, Krystal Tomlinson and Moses Davis is…we are apart. We are not together anymore.It’s not because of any bad vibes or any disrespect, people just grow apart, and yea life change, that’s it…so me, free single and disengaged, she free and single and ready to get engaged,” he said.

Tomlinson and Beenie Man are reportedly together since 2015. Beenie Man fathers to several children, and even though Tomlinson is almost half his age, their relationship was often ridiculed by fans who took joy in disrespecting Tomlinson as just another “baby mother” of the dancehall legend. However, she has always maintained that what people said never bothered her, and how she lived her life was for her happiness and not others’ expectations.

Snoop Dogg Speak On ‘Family Feud’ With Eminem: “We’re Still Friends”

Snoop Dogg is shedding some more light on his ongoing beef with Eminem who he calls family.

The West Coast rap legend says he and Eminem are “family” amidst the widespread spectacle that is his supposed beef with the Detroit rapper. The Snoop Dogg and Eminem saga has probably been fueled further by fan curiosity than anything else and which means it has remained a buzzworthy topic for weeks now. With the controversy being on the surface of so many minds, it was only natural that a fan asked the Los Angeles rapper about the high-profile rift between him and Em when given the opportunity.

Snoop was answering fan questions on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen when he was asked what he thought about Eminem dissing him on the track “Zeus.” The rapper simply made light of the situation and assured fans that his relationship with Em has not in any way been severed by this controversy. “We still friends,” Snoop reassured during the video conference. “I think that’s family business and I don’t want to make it more than what it is. He said what he said and I respect that, we just going to keep it right there. It’s family business.”

This is the first time Snoop has addressed the rumors in a verbal forum, which has likely put more fans at ease. Over on Instagram, the rapper recently shared a post telling fans, “We good.” It did much to placate those who have simply been distraught since news of a feud surfaced.

The much speculated feud seemingly began when Snoop said Eminem wasn’t one of his top 10 favorite rappers. Em’s response on his Music To Be Murdered By sequel triggered a media frenzy that led to the revelation that the two rappers might have long-standing tension over one turning down a collaboration with the other. Eminem’s Music To Be Murdered By – Side B addresses a ton of artists, but the Snoop Dogg slight has become a popular conversation piece.

Pulp – I Love Life Lyrics

Here comes your bedtime story: Mum & Dad have sentenced you to life.
Don’t think twice; it’s the only reason I’m alive.
I feel alright as long as I don’t forget to breathe.
Breathe in, breathe in, breathe out.
Look at all these buildings & houses
I love my life. I love my life.
Hey now, slow down a minute.
Take my arms & fill them full of life.
Don’t think twice.
Does it ease the pain of being alive?
Or is it why – why you keep nodding out on me?
Breathe in, breathe in, breathe out.
Another day, another major disaster
I love my life. I love my life.
You got a problem.
I lost my keys when I stayed at your place.
On the floor of your living room, you made the scene but it’ll never get shown on TV.

So tonight prepare to kiss goodbye to my lovelife.
So get this right- I love my life; it’s the only reason I’m alive.
It’s mine, all mine – as long as I don’t forget to breathe.
Breathe in, breathe in, breathe out.
Corny I know, but you had better believe it
I love my life. I love my life. I love my life. God, how I love my life.
That’s right: you’ve got to fight to the death for the right to live your life.
Alright: I’m gonna fight to the death ’til they give me back my life.
That’s right: you’re in the land of the living but there’s so few signs of life.
Alright.
Breathe in. Breathe out. Breathe out.

Beth Hart – Face Forward Lyrics

Are you a liar
Or are you a thief
Are you a dog
Cause I am the leash
Are you a son
Or are you a bitch
I am your God
The scratch you can’t itch

Face forward son
Face forward son
You are your gun

I’ll beat you down
Your back I will break
I’ll make you beg

I’ll make your soul shake
This ain’t no nursery
So kiss that floor
This is your life
The american core

Face forward son
Face forward son
You are your gun

Are you a liar
Or are you a bitch
I am your God
The scratch you can’t itch

JT Explains Why City Girls Didn’t Have A Hit Song Last Year: “Cause We Make Outside Music”

The City Girls claim they make “outside music” and blame the quarantine for holding them back.

It’s been a while since we got a new banger from the City Girls and JT seems to have a theory with respect to why. The entertainment industry took a huge hit with the global pandemic, and for many artists, it put a huge damper or delay on their roll-out plans. Some apparently believe they’d be thriving if outside was still a thing.

A recent tweet by JT has some fans weighing in on the City Girls’ music, and they’re not shy about throwing shade. When the rapper suggested that “If the world was open, we would’ve had HITS Foreal cause we make outside music,” it became a topic of discussion after DJ Akademiks shared the message on his Instagram page.

The comment section was inundated with thoughts about the rap duo’s music, and let’s just say it wasn’t all positive feedback. Many fans attributed the group’s success to their Quality Control Music labelmate Lil Yachty who featured on their first hit. “Lil Yachty* would’ve made hits, “one fan commented. “Didn’t lil yachty make their first hit song? haven’t heard no other hit since,” another added.

If the world was open we would’ve had HITS Foreal cause we make outside music ?

— JT (@ThegirlJT) January 17, 2021

Much of the comments responded to Akademiks’ caption, which asked, “Is #jt from the #citygirls speaking Faxxx or fiction?!” One fan said, “Fax about making outside music, fiction about making hits.” Another quipped, “Good music sounds good anywhere.”

Most of who have chimed in aren’t cutting the City Girls any slack. One fan found JT’s remark perfectly inconsequential and argued that “WAP was a hit in the pandemic. A hit is a hit.” The common consensus is that JT is capping, but for those who have entertained the thought of the theory being true, they recommended that the rappers simply switch things up and adapt.

What are the chances of the City Girls making an inside hit in 2021? Do you think the rappers’ careers will depend on it?

Tambaland Trends After Fans Found Out His Iconic Beats Were Samples

Timbaland is trending on Twitter after fans found out some of his iconic beats are samples.

Timbaland is trending after a video revealing the original songs behind some of his biggest productions have gone viral. The mega-producer is notorious for sampling archaic foreign ballads into his hard-hitting hip-hop beats. The video that is circulating on social media compares snippets of some of Timbaland’s tracks with the songs that they were sampled from.

Jay-Z’s 2000 song “Big Pimpin” starts off the clip and is contrasted with the original flute composition “Khosara, Khosara” written by Baligh Hamdy in 1957. Though people appear to be truly shocked by Timbo’s sampling of Middle Eastern and Asian beats, it was never really a secret. In fact, he and Jay-Z were previously sued by Hamdy’s nephew for copyright infringement. However, the plaintiff was unsuccessful because he reportedly had no copyright ground for infringement claims.

In any case, Timbaland may be a serial sampler, but it was hardly a top secret recipe of his. The video that has caused him to be trending today made light of the sample used in another of his hits – Aaliyah’sMore Than A Woman,” which uses a sample from Syrian singer Mayada El Hennawy’s 1993 song “Alouli Ansa.” Aaliyah’s “I Don’t Know,” which was released in 2003, also incorporates a sample of “Batwanes Beek,” the title track from Arabic Pop singer Warda’s 1992 album.

It is not uncommon for producers to sample compositions that came before them, and many tweets have raised this point. Others, however, are more concerned about the original work going uncredited. “When people sample, they pay royalties or/ and credit to the artist. Timbaland did not give these artist either. Not discrediting Timbaland he’s a great producer. That’s the end of my Ted talk of stop giving your favorites passes,” one tweet read.

Everyone knows @Timbaland is a master of his craft. Did you know these three hits sampled these Arabic classics? ?

— Nooriyah (@Nooriyah_) January 18, 2021

Fans seem to have mixed reactions to the topic. Over on Twitter, many agreed that “sampling is a part of hip-hop,” which is hard to argue, and some defended Timbo’s legacy claiming that sampling is a “small part of his overall prowess as a producer.” Granted, Timbaland is not the only famous producer who loves a good sample. DJ Khaled is definitely among those fond of the production practice.

How do you feel about producers sampling other people’s music on some of their most popular beats?

So apparently Twitter thinks Timbaland is a thief for sampling. Just wait until you type in your favorite song on whosampled???? pic.twitter.com/Xn9y961nJz

— Chris (@richchris98) January 18, 2021

Timbaland is trending because Twitter is mad at him for using samples from all over the world.

Sampling is an important part of hip hop. It’s the ability to use other art to create something new. The sample could either be chopped or untouched. Let’s not be weird today.

— Dedee ? (@thoughtfulbae) January 18, 2021

It’s amazing how people still don’t understand sampling and calling Timbaland a “thief”. If the sample is fire already, you don’t have to manipulate it that much. Timbaland made this shit smack with his drums. https://t.co/qtM8TPZylq

Timbaland stealing from the Middle East like a true American. https://t.co/VXdwNqpv5B

This Timbaland situation and the reactions to it is making me pray that y’all don’t discover any other hip hop producer.

— Dedee ? (@thoughtfulbae) January 18, 2021

Twitter just now found out what sampling is and trying to call Timbaland a bad producer.? pic.twitter.com/qwY0zi1xjF

Sean Paul Details How He Handled Jealous Tension With Jay-Z Over Beyonce

Sean Paul is revealing which artists to expect on his new albums and how he handled the long-lived conspiracy that he and Jay-Z had beef over Beyoncé.

Perhaps one of the most wonderous career-sprouting moments for Sean Paul was his 2003 collaboration with Beyoncé, “Baby Boy.” It can be considered that the song came early in both Bey’s and Sean’s careers. The mega-hit, which topped the Billboard chart for nine weeks, was served up on Queen B’s first solo album, Dangerously In Love. While the celebrated track was responsible for their early success, it also incited rumors of a romance between the American R&B singer and Jamaican dancehall star.

At the time, Beyoncé was dating Jay-Z, her current husband to whom she married in 2008 and shares, three children. Both artists remained tight-lipped during the highly-publicized speculation that has followed their careers for years. The primary rumor spawned spin-offs, including that the two dated while Bey was on a break from her then-boyfriend Jay-Z, and years later that Sean Paul supposedly admitted in a biography that Jay-Z was “was very jealous” and has a problem with him “to this day.”

The focal point of the controversy predated these revelations, however, as the plot thickened when Sean Paul was allegedly prevented from performing his hit song with Beyoncé at the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards, reportedly on account of this incorrigible jealousy that Jay-Z possessed. Sean Paul has tried to discredit the rumors in the past, calling them “crazy” after the fact, but he made sure to ride the wave back in the early 2000s. The speculation was only fueled further by the fact that the two artists shot the music video for “Baby Boy” separately.

Perhaps one of the most esteemed moments of his career in spite of the scandalous connotation, the “Baby Boy” controversy forced Sean Paul to quell rumors of a romance between him and Beyoncé on several occasions. Alas, the dancehall deejay is addressing the famous ordeal again in a new radio interview in Jamaica. The Grammy Award-winning deejay did not deny that there was tension with Jay-Z regarding the rapper’s reservations about him and Beyoncé back in the day. In fact, he said he wasn’t “comfortable” with how some things were.

During the discussion on RJR 94’s Two Live Crew with Wesley Burger, the host, Burgerman, expressed his qualms about the whole debacle “when Baby Boy did come out.” The radio personality told Paul, “you know dah likkle video suppm deh. Mi neva feel good bout it enuh, but mi a seh, mi like how di General deal wid it though.” In response, the dancehall star was in agreement about the feeling of unease, but he just used tact to tackle the problem.

“Yuh si weh you seh? You neva feel comfortable. Me neva feel comfortable needa, but mi jus use my diplomacy all di while an guh roun any likkle obstacle weh me have inna life,” said Sean Paul. Burgerman then postulated that Jay-Z just didn’t want Sean anywhere near Beyoncé, which is when he responded, “Yes, to me that was something that was apparent at the time.” He later added, “Wi know that artistry is artistry suh a nuh every time dem ting deh gwan.”

In a previous interview in the early 2010s, Sean Paul said he knew Jay-Z before Beyoncé and suggested that the rumors were absurd. “The general public blew it up in certain things,” he stated via MTV News back in 2012. He admitted that he never shut down the rumor at the time because it was great publicity for the song. “I just remained quiet about it for years because it was doing its work. There was just a lot of controversy,” he continued. “She’s an amazing artist, the song was at number 1 for like nine weeks, so that was a very special time for me and for dancehall.”

Sean Paul never said the thought never crossed his mind. In fact, he thought it inevitable because “she’s a beautiful woman,” as he previously admitted in a MOBO Awards interview, but there was never any real indication of foul play or record of him being anything less than respectful. The fact that he is still being asked about this rumor in 2021 is a testament to the infinite power of controversial publicity. This year, even with his song with Beyoncé being ever-relevant, Sean Paul is anticipating creating new history with artists like Gwen Stefani, Sia, and more.

According to the American Music Award-winning deejay, he plans to release two albums this year: Live and Living and Scorcher. The latter will feature artists like Shenseea, Stylo G, and Jada Kingdom, while the former will have a dancehall star-studded guest list that includes Buju Banton, Busy Signal, Mavado, and more. Dancehall hot topics Squash, Intence, Masicka, among others, will also appear on Live and Living.

Are you looking forward to Sean Paul’s 2021 hits and these exciting collaborations?
