NEW MUSIC: NAS (@NAS)-DAUGHTERS

Nasir Jones, strikes again. You know everyone has there all time favorite rapper, and when you ask a group of people to name the top 5 rappers of all time, it's hard to make the list and not include Nas. Why? Simple, his music reflects exactly who he is. This time Nas drops a new single from his upcoming album, Life Is Good, called Daughters. In the song, the legendary rapper gets personal, and speaks about his relationship with his oldest daughter Destiny. Honestly I think it's a great expression of his relationship with his child. But unfortunately, it seems that his baby momma thinks of the song as a disappointment, siting that Nas only spoke of his daughter in a negative light, versus the good things about her. To me it just seems that she may be blowing this a little bit out of proportion. I can understand her maybe feeling some type of way about her childs life being put on display, but at the same time, I can simply hear Nas putting his feelings on wax, which is what most artist do, well the good ones anyway. Check out the song, and tell me if you think it's a disappointment?



NEW MUSIC: D. WOODS(@YAGIRLDWOODS)-2 THE BOTTOM

D. Woods just dropped her brand new upbeat single, 2 The Bottom. The former Danity Kane member continues on her hustle, and she has a nice club banger with this one. The song was written by D.

NEW MUSIC: BOW WOW (@BOWWOW) FT. T-PAIN-BETTER


Bow Wow is gearing up for the release of his new studio album, Underrated, with his new label, Cash Money. The song is called Better, and features T-Pain. These are the types of joints that I love to hear Bow do. Yea I know it's more to him than this, but can you tell me, when is it ever wrong to work the lane created for you? When one steps down, I always believe that God has another ready to take over. Look at Jordan and Kobe, Magic and Lebron, and then there was LL Cool J, and now Bow Weezy. His fans have surely grew up with him, so they understand that he will have other things to rap about, like the fact that he is now the proud father of a beautiful baby girl. But I pray he never leaves this lane, and that this sound always outweighs any other that may appear on any album he does.  It's been almost a year already since he announced the album was coming. I don't have to say that I'm a fan of Bow's, well that So So Def Bow for sure, so I'm definitely awaiting to hear what this album will sound like. I must admit I have not really been hyped about what I have heard thus far, but I think it just got BETTER.

NEW MUSIC: BRANDY(4EVERBRANDY) FT. CHRIS BROWN(@CHRISBROWN)-PUT IT DOWN

Brandy is back! This is her official coming out party with this track. And no the track is not laced with powerful vocal tricks (which we know she is more than capable of) but simply a catchy track, that displays a little bit of Bran Nu (her alter ego rap name), her true vocal gifts, and the hottest r/b cat in the game, Chris Brown (although he spits a hot 16 on this one). I don't know just loving the sound. Maybe it's simply that I'm starved for new Brandy Music. Nonetheless, it's definitely going to get my money when the single officially drops on Itunes. The album, 2/11, is slated for a June release. Until then check out the brand new single from Brandy featuring Chris Brown, Put It Down.

NEW MUSIC: KANYE WEST FT. T-PAIN-THE GOOD LIFE (WOODY REMIX)

NEW MUSIC: USHER (@USHERRAYMONDIV)-SCREAM

Usher drops another single from his upcoming album, Looking For Myself, called Scream. The new single is a drastic contrast from his current hit single, Climax. The pop, techno styled song let's me know that this album has a vibe that is reminding me of Raymond vs Raymond. Now although I loved OMG featuring Will I Am, I hope that there are more songs with that Climax vibe. The new album is slated to hit stores 6/12/12.


TLC PLANNING REUNION TOUR: LEFT EYE TO BE HOLOGRAMMED

April 25th, commemorated the 10yr. anniversary of the sudden death of Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes, and I still have a hard time expressing what she meant to the world, and more specifically as a sister to Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins, and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas.

Well now that we have all seen the "resurrection" of Tupac, using the hologram at Coachella, TLC will do the same thing for Lisa. The top selling female group is planning a reunion tour for this year, with 5 cities already being booked.

"Left Eye was killed 10 years ago today in a fatal car accident in Honduras. “The word anniversary means a celebration. For us her death will never be a celebration, it’s still something that hurts,” said T-Boz, while Chilli added, “Lisa is our sister. You never get over losing a family member. We love her and we miss her and that isn’t ever going to change.”
To commemorate the 20th anniversary of TLC, the surviving members are working with VH1 on a made-for-TV movie series inspired by their story as well as a new album.
“We’ll have new music right after the movie drops,” Chilli told Essence. “We have everybody that was there with us from the beginning on board.” (via RAP-UP)
As a long-time TLC fan, (I have everything they have ever sold..lol), I pray that this tour comes near me. I'm definitely trying to be in the house. Just knowing that Tionne & Chilli will once again take the stage with Lisa, is worth every dime of it's price.

[VIDEO] DONDRIA (@DONDRIA)-REMOVER

Ah the ability to sing! So So Def artist Dondria makes sure she maintains a close relationship with her Youtube audience, and this time she hits them with a freestyle, about Nail Polish Remover.

I love this young lady. Oh and on a serious note, she has been hard at work in the studio, preparing for her sophmore album, so it's not all play with this songstress. Enjoy!

NEW MUSIC: LATOCHA SCOTT (@IAMLATOCHA)-BAD TIMING


LaTocha Scott, from the platinum selling 90's group, Xscape, has returned with a new single, Bad Timing. I'm loving this new joint. LaTocha just has the voice that will make you listen if all she was singing was the alphabet. Of course it's hard for this blogger to hear songs from her and not think about how Xscape would possibly have been much bigger than Destiny Child ever was, had they stayed together. I'm so optimistic, and believe that when God can create a group like that, no one should be able to break it apart, not even the memembers of the group. He always say, pride comes before the fall, so all we need is for them to let it go, cause we need the GIFTS! Hey, that 90's sound is back, and with SWV recently releasing a new album (and it sounds good), I believe Xscape would fill the void that has been left open in the female group category. Sorry about the "soapbox," but my readers already know! Latocha definitely still has IT, support the single by copping it now on Itunes.

[VIDEO] 2PAC HOLOGRAM PERFORMS AT COACHELLA

There was a 2Pac sighting this weekend! Ah the ability of technology! A 2Pac hologram was created to perform at Coachella, where the artist (hologram) performed Hail Mary, and Gangsta Party with Snoop Dogg. It was so incredible to me, to such a degree, that it brought tears to my eyes. To me, Pac is the greatest to ever do it, and to have that hologram be so life like it could almost take your breath away. Check it out for yourself.
