…or a producer, or hip hopper, or whatever we they’re calling themselves these days. Forbes compiled it annual list of the biggest earners, or Kash Kings and they call it, and its a pretty impressive list. No real newcomers this years, but its a who’s who of the rap game. Fif, JAy, ‘Ye, Dre, Em, Pharrell and the other usuals… Its crazy to think that when I was a shorty my pops would tell me that its just temporary and no one will be listening to rap music 20 years from now… well its 15 years a few years later and “rap” music is selling everything from Kotex to Crunk. From television and movies, to computers and iphones to everything sports related, the urban music scene is up and down Madison Avenue. Trend setters, moguls of all mediums, and even philanthropy and political activism, i love it!
a little more fun too! the hip hop homes for sale, you know if you have a loose $6-15m hanging around in your couch!
Usher’s new record is going to be crazy! We have already heard like 5 tracks and all of them are bangers! It may not be a Confessions, but it is a solid R&B record that we need. Here is the latest courtesy of Bossip, The Best Thing, featuring Jigga, produced by JD and No ID. It’s gotta be a hit right, well it is. Next Tuesday needs to herry up.
This is the album cover for Janet Jackson’s upcoming Discipline album due out in late February. The first single and video is called Feedback… its aight.. I guess Janet is trying to get her Madonna on, and I am not mad at that. If Madonna can keep selling out tours and making records, why can’t Miss Jackson… or soon to be Mrs. Dupri. Speaking of touring… there is a rumor of a Jackson 5 reunion. Janet has suggested the Mike get back to making music and get on stage with the brothers and her. I am interested to see how this turns out.
