Lil Wayne Strikes a Prince-Like Pose for Vibe Cover

“There’s no competition [with any artists]. Music isn’t about competition no more. All the gangster rappers are happy, all the skateboard rappers are happy, all the white rappers are happy… Everybody just happy to do music these days. There are no problems. That shit died a long time ago with them old-ass rappers. We are just making music, making money and having fun feeding our families. Competition is for the old guys.”

VIBE: You say competition is for the “old guys,” but it sounds like you’re going at Jay-Z with that line, “I got your baby money/Kidnap your bitch, get that how-much-you-love-your-lady money.” Are we looking at it the wrong way?

LIL WAYNE: I know for a fact, music is about perception. You can’t do anything but perceive what you hear. If I know that for a fact, I can never be upset about someone’s reaction to it. I’m not gonna say I don’t know what will happen before I say it [on record]. I do know what will happen. I am aware of it. It is what it is.

VIBE: So you knew the repercussions of going after Jay before anything even happened?
LIL WAYNE: Well, I’m a man. I believe as a man you should know that. Every man should know the repercussions and consequences behind whatever they do before they do it. And of course, I know there won’t be any repercussions behind what I did."

Reebok Classics Presents: Raekwon

Real Housewives of Atlanta's Kim Zolciak Getting a Spin-Off?

According to Huffington Post, Bravo is gearing RHOA's Kim Zolciak up for a new series:

“Originally the show was to be five African American women but after Bravo met Kim, they insisted she be part of the cast,” an insider tells told the Huffington Post. “Kim is a game-changer. She was the first housewife to release a single ["Tardy for the Party"] and just like Bethenny [Frankel], she fell in love and got pregnant while taping the show. She’s the perfect choice for the next lady to get her own show.”

I haven't  watch RHOA since the first season, but its interesting that none of the African American leads are getting a spin-off.    Sure Kim is "game-changer", but I think most fans would say that Nee Nee Leakes  is the #1  "game changer" on the show.

Sly Stone Broke Living in a Van Down By The River..err LA!

(Via New York Post)

"....Today, Sly Stone -- one of the greatest figures in soul-music history -- is homeless, his fortune stolen by a lethal combination of excess, substance abuse and financial mismanagement. He lays his head inside a white camper van ironically stamped with the words “Pleasure Way” on the side. The van is parked on a residential street in Crenshaw, the rough Los Angeles neighborhood where “Boyz n the Hood” was set. A retired couple makes sure he eats once a day, and Stone showers at their house. The couple’s son serves as his assistant and driver.

Inside the van, the former mastermind of Sly & the Family Stone, now 68, continues to record music with the help of a laptop computer.

“I like my small camper,” he says, his voice raspy with age and years of hard living. “I just do not want to return to a fixed home. I cannot stand being in one place. I must keep moving.”

Remake of a Remake: The Return of Scarface ???

Word on the street is that there is a Scarface remake in the works.

According to Deadline, "Universal Pictures is developing a new version of Scarface, the title first released in 1932 and then turned into the iconic 1983 film that starred Al Pacino as Cuban gangster Tony Montana."

How do you feel about a new version of Scarface? Who should play him (or her) or should they leave Tony Montana and his "little friend" alone?

CNN: Why Jay-Z's music still mattered on 9/11

"So why did "The Blueprint" do so well amid the chaos of 9/11?

Music experts say that music sales that day and week were at least partially driven by a group of youthful consumers, who were somehow and incredulously untroubled -- or at least not paralyzed -- by the events of 9/11.

"Young people not directly affected are always more removed from the onset of national tragedy," said Tricia Rose, a professor at Brown University and author of "The Hip Hop Wars." "

Hercules! Hercules! Eddie Murphy to host 2012 Oscars

(via Yahoo)

"..Veteran Hollywood comedy star Eddie Murphy is to host the Oscars awards show next year, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences said Tuesday.

It will be the first time the standup comic turned actor -- famous for films from "Beverly Hills Cop" in the 1980s to "Shrek" in which he does the voice of Donkey -- has hosted the Oscars, the climax of Hollywood's awards season.

"Eddie is a comedic genius, one of the greatest and most influential live performers ever," said telecast co-producer Brett Ratner, who will put on the February 26 show with Don Mischer.

"With his love of movies, history of crafting unforgettable characters and his iconic performances -- especially on stage -- I know he will bring excitement, spontaneity and tremendous heart to the show," he added.

Mischer added: "Eddie is a truly ground-breaking performer, whose amazingly diverse array of roles has won him a devoted audience of all ages. His quick wit and charisma will serve him very well as Oscar host."

Murphy, who gained fame on TV show Saturday Night Live in the early 1980s before breaking onto the big screen, said he was looking forward to the gig.

"I am enormously honored to join the great list of past Academy Award hosts from (Bob) Hope and (Johnny) Carson to (Billy) Crystal, (Steve) Martin and (Whoopi) Goldberg, among others," he said.

"I'm looking forward to working with Brett and Don on creating a show that is enjoyable for both the fans at home and for the audience at the Kodak Theatre" in Hollywood, he added.

The Oscars organizers will likely hope Murphy gets a better reception than this year's co-hosts, Anne Hathaway and James Franco. The latter was notably criticized for a wooden performance in February"

TNT Cancels 'HawthoRNe': Jada Pinkett Responds on WhoSay

Prior to announcement that TNT was canceling HawthoRNe, Jada Pinkett broke the news on the site "WhoSay"

"Hey everyone...if you don't know Hawthorne will not be returning for another season. I want to say thank you to all the fans for being Hawthorne soldiers. All our facebook fans...twitter soldiers and held us down. Of course you know there is more to come...believe it!"

The three year old show seemed to be turning the corner this year, especially

with the on screen heat generated by Pinkett-Smith and her castmate, which led to rumors of an affair.

Did you watch a HawthoRNe? Was the cancellation deserved or did it warrant another season?

Erykah Badu Talks 2Pac & New Album With Gorillaz

(Via Wall Street Jorunal)

How soon can we expect more new music from you? And how much will you be touring for the material you just released?

Man, I do not know. I wish I could write like Tupac, but I can’t. I do this because of what I feel and what I see and what I’ve experienced and what I desire. And other than that, it’s a downloading period – I’m just learning and growing and listening and feeling. And when it comes out, it comes out like a volcano. That’s how it works for me; time has no bearing – I don’t know how much time passes in between [albums]. It’s just that I’m primarily a performance artist – that’s how I make my money. I don’t make my money selling albums at all. But it’s my pleasure to be able to perfect something like that and do it.

What’s happening next for you?
I’m making an album right now with a guy named Flying Lotus. I’m working on a project with The Gorillaz. I’m always doing something. It doesn’t always make headlines, but I’m always making art – always. I deliver babies. That’s what I do – that’s the art that I’m focusing on right now for the most part. I’m a midwife.
