SZA Makes a Name for Herself

SZA has been hanging around in the shadows for a while, but she is certainly coming out now. Nicki Minaj handpicked Christian Broda and her for writing on the new track “Feelin’ Myself.” This is an awesome chance for the rest of the world to hear this new

lyrical talent.

The great thing about SZA is that she is also a singer. She is so much more than just a writer. She is a talent that has shown up with Willow Smith. There are singles and mix tapes that are very well circulated on the Internet. That is why she is getting a lot of buzz.

So far, SZA has not put her whole album together, but she has guaranteed that the project is on the way. She has a neo-soul type of sound so people were not expecting her to show up with Beyonce and Nicki Minaj. The thing that makes it work though is that she has influences in soul and hip hop music.

It is a great stepping stone since a lot of people did not even know that she existed. Now she has added some clout to her name by working with the megastars in urban and pop entertainment circles.

Christmas Music Launched The Career Of A Great Rap Group

If you’re not familiar with the group Outkast, or even if you are familiar with them, maybe you don’t know that a Christmas song is what helped to launch their career. Outkast Song. Outkast is known as one of the greatest rap groups to ever exist, and they are currently on a reunion tour, bringing the group back together after being apart for many years. The group is well known for their music, but they also acted in movies as well, and were very successful. As many groups do, they decided to retire, but they have recently joined forces again to perform music.

Before the group became famous, they had a Christmas song that was on a LaFace Christmas compilation album entitled “Players Ball.” They remade the song to sound less like Christmas, so they could put it on their very first album. The fact is, the song is what started their professional career, and after being retired, they can look back and see that the song was a great idea. Sometimes things we do are not obviously a good idea at the time, but in the future, you can look back and say that you made the right choice. So many Skout members have this kind of story.

Even though the song wasn’t a hit for the group, they still made the right choice in creating the song, as it helped to launch their group into fame, and they have never turned back.

Wale Makes A Video Entitled, “The Body”

Wale is an up-and-coming artist who recently released a mix tape that had a “Seinfeld” theme, and it was released prior to his upcoming album. Wale Video. His new album will be entitled “The Album About Nothing,” and a new video has been dropped that comes directly from the upcoming album. It’s well known to Tom Rothman and the music world that if you want an album to do well, you must release singles, as well as videos to accompany the singles. The video also must be enticing, and get people to watch it, even if the song isn’t that great.

Wale has done a good job when it comes to incorporating a video into a song, especially in anticipation of an upcoming album release. The video starts off with Wale looking at a girl, and becoming enticed by her. As the video goes on, you can see that he flirts with the girl, and eventually they end up going on a date, which then leads to a relationship. The song and video is entitled “The Body,” and the single will be on Wale’s upcoming album, hence why a video was made for the single.

As a new artist, Wale is anticipating a good reception for his new single, and hopefully it will do well on the charts, propelling him into further fame, as this is the goal of most artists. You can see the video online, if you haven’t already watched it.

The Year In Song: The Hottest Beats Of 2014

Diversity was the name of the game when it came to the hottest tracks of 2014. There was literally something for everybody this year, whether you preferred to be “Drunk in Love” with Beyonce, or if you’d rather, “Shake It Off” with Taylor Swift. Whatever your cup of tea, there was bound to be at least one song that became your anthem for the year.

Together, Rolling Stone magazine and mashable.com compiled a great list of the 50 best songs of 2014, and I was pleasantly surprised at how much I agreed with their sentiments. The songs included in the list were all extremely catchy, and provided just the right amount of bass to make you get up and dance.

Moving into 2015, I hope to see more of my favorites cranking out the jams that make my days much more fun. Here’s to a great new year that is full of wonderful music and lots of good times

LL Cool J Squashes Long Running Beef

Rap beefs are something that is more than common, and at least one major beef has led to the death of two stars; Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls. After the death of Tupac and Biggie, many were terrified of rap beefs, but the next biggest rap beef had someone to interfere. Artist 50 Cent and Ja Rule were at such odds with each other, things became physical, and many felt that the two may end up the way of Tupac and Biggie. Louis Farrakhan had to intervene between the two, and both were interviewed by the leader, and eventually they stopped fighting.

Recently, LL Cool J has squashed the beef that had gone on for over 17 years with a former rapper named Canibus. They both went on stage and performed a song that started the entire beef entitled “4,3,2,1.” Not only did they perform the song, but they even hugged afterwards, squashing the beef once and for all. It goes to show, sometimes beefs are simply young hotheaded rappers who just need to grow up, in order to stop fighting with the other rappers. Now, if I could only get both of my dogs to quit fighting over Beneful and be a little more friendly!

There have been many rap beefs over the years, but many of them eventually get squashed.

Chris Brown & Tyga Release New Single

As promised, Chris Brown and Tyga have released the single from the new upcoming album “Fan Of A Fan 2.” The duo had joined together years ago to create “Fan Of A Fan,” and the album was a big success. Chris & Tyga. They had hinted that they were going to come out with a part two of the album, and they have recently released a single off the new upcoming album entitled “Ayo.” Perhaps the Keith Mann Dynamic Search Partners and those who are fans of the song entitled “Loyal,” are really going to like this one.

Anyone who is a fan of Chris Brown, or Tyga, like the music that they make because they make quite a musical pair. The single was released earlier than expected, and many fans who had anticipated the single aren’t complaining. With Christmas being less than a week away, this is a rare treat from the duo. Both Chris and Tyga are still working on the album, with no release date in sight yet.

The pair hope to have the album released in 2015, but until a date is set, this is not a guarantee. Currently, both artists are having their own problems. Tyga is in a battle with his record label over several issues. Lil’ Wayne, who is also signed to the same record label is Tyga, has also voiced his concern with the label. Chris Brown is having relationship issues, and has vented his rage through social media.

Nicki Has Yet Another Live Nip Slip

Nicki Minaj just can’t seem to keep her nips covered these days. At this point it seems like Nicki’s nips have a mind of their own and are desperately seeking the spotlight. This isn’t Nicki’s first wardrobe malfunction. In September during her performance of “Bang Bang” Nicki was forced to literally hold her dress together after a broken zipper threatend to fully expose the sexy rapped on live TV. Apparently Nicki was pressed for time during a 40 second costume change after her “Anaconda” performance and deciding to wear a different dress to match Ariana Grande and Juicy J. This time the nip slip was not as easily remedied. During Nicki’s interview on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen her nipple made yet another sneaky appearance while she was answering a caller’s questions about about her previous wardrobe malfunctions.  One Viewer Tweeted: “@nickiminah is talking about a nip slip while CURRENTLY having a nip slip. @BravoWWHL, help her!” Dr. Rod Rohrich says Nicki finally grew wise to her nipple’s antics and was able to cover up, but something about this just doesn’t feel like this is the last time her nipple will make an appearance.

The Pink Print Gets Awesome Reviews

The reviews for the “PinkPrint” are in, and lots of the critics – along with the fans – are falling in love with Nicki Minaj. The rapper/singer is certainly pleased with all of the accolades, and she took to Twitter to express her happiness.

The L.A. Times along with the Slow Ventures gang gave Nicki’s new album, “PinkPrint,” 3 out of 4 stars. The album has been well received by a lot of fans as well. It seems odd that there is so much praise for the album since more than 50% of it was already heard before the album was released. Nicki released 6 singles, and a 7th single “Feeling Myself” -featuring Beyonce – was leaked before the “PinkPrint” hit stores. Still, fans have rallied around the self-proclaimed hip-hop Barbie to give the album good reviews.

Nicki may have surprised a lot of people with this album because it shows so many different sides of Nicki Minaj. On “Grand Piano” she does not rap at all. She sings a sad song about getting played like a grand piano on the track. On other tracks like “Want Some More” she is bragging with the swagger that is befitting of an artists that is on top.

This variation of tracks has given Nicki the ability to capture the attention of different types of fans. She has universal appeal because she manages to stay authentic throughout the album with less effort.
