Lil Wayne is Tripping

DESNG Bringing you the latest in Hip Hop
Listen to him just rant about what is in his cup and how he can drink whatever he wants to drink.

In related news, Lil Wayne is trying to sell his multi-million dollar Miami condominium. The four-bedroom pad located in South Beach is currently being listed for $2.8 million. In a recent interview with Tim Westwood, Weezy denied rumors (posted by the New York Post) that he was having problems selling the place due to its smell of marijuana. "We’re not having trouble selling it...The people that are coming to look at it like that more about it. That’s like coming into Bob Marley’s crib and you still smelling weed and his bed still messed up. They’re like ‘leave all that shit. I want to buy all that.’ I’m one of those niggas right now."

"Jim Jonsin, Dr. Luke, me, it's a good combination...I actually worked with him as soon as he got out. He actually left and went straight to the studio apparently, so, I went in and worked with him some, we did some stuff for his album, my album. And you know, just really got in there to get in the vibe. Since he's been released, he seems more, he has something to prove now. I feel like he has a deeper fire to his whole approach, it has more motivation. He's a motivated person in general, but I feel he's got a lot more now."

He's as serious as a heart attack who want a part of that? Listen to the exclusive interview where Mess talks about his new Scalen clothing company. What caught my attention was the DVD Gigantic. This is a documentary based on Mess's life behind the scenes. Bay Area music doesn't receive as much coverage as I would like today. You hear all these rappers talking about how Fillmoe is the birthplace. I want the latest on that beef with the CCG and I want to see how he made it in the game. What's all this talk about Mess not even being in the Mo'. What the fuck is that? I'm excited to go behind the scenes and see what Mess is all about. Behind the rap life, behind the personal life, just on some real street shit. He's giving the world a bird's eye view of some things they wasn't aware of. He also mentions his 12 disc album coming out later this year. Finally that 12 disc album is coming out

Jay-Z Talks About His Upcoming New Album

DESNG Bringing You the latest in Hip Hop
Jay-Z recently talked to MTV about the follow up to his still-selling "Blueprint 3" album, explaining why a release date for the new project is the last thing he is worried about right now. According to the Roc Nation leader, he is currently still working on putting the project together. "I don't know," Jay-Z answered when asked about a possible release date for the new album.

"I didn't really start yet. I got a couple of scraps and I got a couple of ideas. I didn't really go into the studio yet. I've been toying with ideas and direction and things like that. I got one crazy record. To be honest with you, it's crazy. I got one and we'll build from there. Whether it comes out this year or next year, it depends on the music and how it's coming out. I don't really have any dates."

Jay-Z Explains Not Doing "We Are The World"

DESNG Bringing you the latest in Hip Hop
Although it seemed like everyone took part in the new "We Are The World" remake, one person was noticeably absent, Jay-Z. At the recent Jay-Z / LeBron James All-Star weekend "Two-Kings" dinner, Jigga was asked why he did not participate in the remake. "I have a interesting take on that. I know everybody is gonna take this wrong: "We Are the World," I love it, and I understand the point and think it’s great. But I think “We Are the World” is like “Thriller” to me. I don’t ever wanna see it touched. I’m a fan of music. I know the plight and everything that’s going on in Haiti. I applaud the efforts. Like 1 out of 2 Americans donated through text to Haiti. That’s amazing. So I appreciate the efforts and everything, but “We are the World” is untouchable like “Thriller” is untouchable. Some things are just untouchable. It was a valiant effort, but for me, it’s gonna be untouchable."

Messy Marv set to release his 12 Disc Album "Project Superstar"




DESNG Brining you the latest in Hip Hop
He's doing it again. After announcing that he would make a 12 disc album on his
Cake & Ice Cream mixtape the young Boy Boy Mess has officially confirmed it. Fillmore, California veteran rapper Messy Marv has been releasing albums for almost 15 years. The SMC Records artist has done full-length collaborations with San Quinn, Guce and Mitchy Slick, but nothing in his career rivals what Marv recently told website BayCentrik.com.

Confirming that a long-rumored 12-disc release was indeed on the way, Marv told the site about his reasoning for releasing over half a day's worth of music in one chunk. Called Project Superstar, Marv is self-releasing the collection to his legions of longtime supporters. "It's one of them albums that I'm doing just strictly for all the online heads, the Internet heads," he told BayCentrik.com. "I'm trying to build my online presence so I'm giving them a special package for supporting me for so long. A 12 disc album for a little bit of nothing, you know? You have to log onto ScalenLLC.com to get it."

Drake Sprite Commercial

DESNG Bringing you the latest in Hip Hop
Canadian Young Money rapper Drake recently was chosen to represent Sprite in its first ever global marketing campaign. Labeled as the "Spark" campaign, Drake talks about his partnership with the giant soda company.

"My management brought it to me and explained the initial idea and the message behind it and I was all for it," Drake said in an interview. "The campaign is really about creativity through music and film and promotes fresh thinking and originality. I guess they recognized my potential based off what has happened with my music career in the last year. I think it's a great thing to be responsible, in a way, for exciting young kids."


The campaign is called "Spark" because it refers to the new updated logo. It will advertise in multiple spots including TV, online, music remixing, movies, mobile, outdoor and print advertising. As well Sprite is having a new amateur dunking contest as well it has step-team competitions for college students.

Cash Money Records admit they made a mistake



DESNG Bringing you the latest in Hip Hop
In an interview with Ozone Magazine, Cash Money Records founder Birdman, also known as Baby, confronted R&B recording artist, R. Kelly, insisting that past collaborations resulted in financial debt.

When asked "What's the worst business investment you've made throughout your career", Baby replied "Probably the worst investment I did was fuckin’ with R. Kelly. That was a waste of my time. I could’ve made money if I wasn’t fuckin’ with that clown-ass nigga."

In 2003, Baby was slated to drop a joint album with R. Kelly for Best of Both Worlds II, a follow up to the 2002 album featuring Jay-Z, but the album never took off the ground.

Ozone Magazine also addressed the recent rumors circulating around Drake and Lil Wayne. When asked if Drake writes for Wayne, Baby responded, "C’mon, man. Wayne don’t even write, man. Honestly Wayne don’t write. I don’t know how he do that shit he do, but don’t no nigga do it for him. Wayne don’t play that shit, he never did. We ain’t with that shit. That’s cheatin’ to me, when you’re trying to be great. When you’re just an artist that wants a hot record, that’s something different, but when you’re trying to be great you ain’t bout to let no nigga write for you, cause you don’t wanna lose none of the credit. Wayne wants to be the best to ever do it. To be the greatest ever takes your skillful thoughts, not another person's."

Dre sues Deathrow



Dr. Dre says its been 14 years since he has last seen a royalty check for the classic album, "The Chronic" and its time to get paid. So this week Dr. Dre filed a federal lawsuit against Death Row Records parent company WIDEawake which bought Death Row records last year after a bankruptcy.

Some might think Dre was scared to file a lawsuit before when the boss was Suge Knight. But now that he is out of the picture Dre is going to get what he deserves.

In the lawsuit Dre states that he stopped receiving royalty checks from Death Row after he cut ties and left in '96. Dre is mad that he hasnt seen any money from the new rereleases of The Chronic (dubbed The Chronic Re-Lit) plus numerous other Death Row albums he produced on.

Kid Cudi calling it quits after 4 or 5 albums



DESNG bringing you the latest in hip hop
Even though “How To Make It In America,” the new HBO show starring rapper Kid Cudi, hasn’t even aired yet Cudi is already talking about eventually ending his rap career to focus on acting.

The rapper recently told New York Magazine that he plans on calling it a wrap after about four or five albums.

"I’m trying to evenly balance them out right now, but eventually I want to leave behind music and just do acting," Kid Cudi revealed. "I only got into the music business to tell my story and inspire some people. I think four albums will do it, and when I’m done with my four, five albums, I’ll switch it up. Once the story is told [musically], there’s nothing else to say."

“How To Make It In America” will air on HBO on Sunday, February 14 at 10 p.m.

In other Kid Cudi news, Cudi is claiming that alcohol may have played a major role in an attack on a fan that happened back in December.

According to TMZ.com Cudi called Michael Sharpe, the man he punched at his show, to apologize. He also told Sharpe that his actions that night were brought on by alcohol.

TMZ attempted to reach out to Cudi in regards to his phone call to Sharpe, but they did not receive a response.

Kid Cudi has reportedly apologized to the fan he attacked during a concert in Toronto Canada in December he blamed the whole incided on the alcohol.

The victim, Michael Sharpe told TMZ this week that Cudi called him up last weekend and apologized and offered to fly him out to New York to make up for it.

It was all bad press and news for Cudi when the story broke out in December. Shortly after the news broke Lady Gaga kicked Cudi off the tour. You would have to of thought this was because of the fan punch incident however the press release stated:
Kid Cudi has decided to take an early leave of absence from Lady Gaga's Monster Ball tour, in order to balance his schedule surrounding the recording of his next album and acting commitments," the statement reads. "Cudi does not want to disappoint his fans and will move forward with his individual show dates in December and throughout the month of January"

Lil Wayne Shoots Over 10 Music Videos


Lil Wayne recently sat down to speak about his time leading up to his recent sentencing hearing (which was delayed) in which he shot tons of music videos in anticipation of going to jail for one-year. Talking with UK radio personality Tim Westwood, Weezy said it came down to just simply setting goals. "Ah man, determination," Wayne explained in an interview last weekend. "You set a goal, I'm actually one of those types of people that don't stop until the goal is done. I set that goal and have to finish it."

Weezy goes on to talk about how many videos he has shot. "I did five today, I think I did something yesterday. Tomorrow, I think I got a few tomorrow. And I shot a few in Atlanta, I shot one in Dallas. I shot some in LA, I shot like four in LA."

Murs Releases New Podcast, Offers Free Downloads and More

Never afraid of teaming up with colleagues, Murs has recently partnered with Isaiah Toothtaker. After working with everyone from his Living Legend brothers to Slug and 9th Wonder, Murs has added this new partnership to his 2010 plan in order to release podcasts through werd2murs.com

Werd2Murs podcasts weave through various topics, not always pertinent to music, that showcase Toothtaker and Murs speaking their minds. In addition to the audio of the two speaking, there are a few videos up of the two. The site also features a couple of free downloads for their fans. Murs' Sweet Lord is available on the site and so is Toothtaker's Yiggy.

In the long run, this site also holds Murs fans off until the release of his highly anticipated March release ForNever, the latest project from him and 9th Wonder, which Murs has spoken to us about in the past. Aside from this release, Murs has been excited about the new Paid Dues line-up, which is expanding to a line-up that will feature two different stages, something that hasn't been done in the history of Paid Dues.

The bill, which we first announced more than a week ago, will feature Ice Cube, Raekwon, Jay Electronica, Murs, Tha Dogg Pound, Necro, Psycho Realm, People Under the Stairs, Dilated Peoples, Del the Funkyhomosapien, Freeway & Jake One, R.A. The Rugged Man, Doomtree, and many more. Also, the Freestyle Fellowship will perform for the first time in over ten years at Paid Dues, which will take April 3, 2010 in San Bernardino, California.

Game Officially Returns To Aftermath Records

Saturday afternoon, rapper Game officially announced his return to Aftermath Records. The announcement, made via the Compton star rapper's Twitter page (@IHateGame), comes after pictures and statements already confirming Game's musical reunion with one of his early mentors, Dr. Dre.

Claiming, "It's funny how things come full circle. R.E.D." Game linked to a photograph of him wearing four Aftermath medallions on chain necklaces. R.E.D. is the title of Game's spring album, which may now carry the Aftermath logo.

Having released his multi-platinum debut, The Documentary on G-Unit/Aftermath/Interscope in 2005, the Black Wall Street founder would later release his two subsequent releases 2006's The Doctor's Advocate and 2008's L.A.X. on Geffen Records. Geffen, a sister-label to Interscope in the IGA (Interscope-Geffen-A&M) family. Many believed these actions were due to tension between Game and 50 Cent, Dr. Dre and even Interscope head Jimmy Iovine.

By returning to Aftermath, Game joins Eminem, 50 Cent, as well as two newer artists Slim Da Mobster and this week's DXnext artist, Hayes. Throughout his career, Game has worked with Aftermath producers including DJ Khalil, Hi-Tek and of course, Dre.

Earlier this week, Game released the Sam Cooke-sampling "Shake" , produced by Cool & Dre, which will be likely included on R.E.D.

Will Hip Hop be different without Lil Wayne?


As many of you know Lil Wayne is about to serve a prison sentence.. That's when it hit me. How will hip hop be different without him. It got me thinking. Will the hip hop industry change at all without him? He has a lot of fans out there and a lot of people that hate him. I for one don't support him because of his music. He raps about the money, girls, and drugs. For the Fans they will be affected because they wont be receiving the music that they like. Even though he says hes going to keep making music it wont be the same.

Do you think hip hop will be different without Wayne? Even though some people out there don't like his music you have to admit that he has caused a movement in hip hop. "He paralyzes a room when he walks into it, his wordplay, the excitement that he brings to his music."(Drake) I feel like the hip hop industry will be hit hard as his fans won't be getting all the music we expect from him that we can listen to. In my opinion I feel that cash money is going to have to work harder to give the fans that same music that we have been receiving from them in the past 2 years. As for Wayne, when he gets out, I feel like he will be at his peak. This will also open up opportunities for up and coming rappers and hopefully people will tune into the underground scene more. Feel free to share your opinion on whether you think hip hop will change or remain the same.

Kanye West Denies Airplane Tantrum


Kanye West recently denied rumors that he threw a fit while on board an airplane flight earlier this week. Taking to his blog, the grammy-award-winning artist spoke about his experiences riding on flights and why causing altercations is not part of his profile. "I feel bad that people believe this kind of stuff or any random rumor that is taken as fact because 'it's on the internet.' This rumor is particularly ironic because I was actually happy with a business class seat and was offered a seat in first class. A friend of mine was sitting in coach so asked if they could bump him up to business instead of putting me in first. There was absolutely no altercation in any way."

Kanye continued "There's been many a time where I've given someone in coach my business or first class seat in order to sit next to a friend I bumped into. I really could care less about where I sit on the plane. It's hard to deal with the rumors sometimes. As a good person with a warm heart, it does bother me. I'm not bigger than feeling pain, embarrassment, stress and worry. Have you ever been lied on??? How does it make you feel??? You wanna tell everybody it's not true right? Thank you to all my fans who still love and support me even though it's not the trend right now! I'm sleeping in the studio and I won't let you guys down!"

B.o.B And Tre Talk Writing With T.I.



T.I. has been keeping a relatively low profile since being released from an Arkansas Prison in December of 2009. Producer Jim Jonsin revealed that Tip quickly hit the studio to begin work on a new, as yet untitled album. Grand Hustle/Atlantic signee B.o.B confirmed the story, which was originally reported by Rap-Up.com, adding that listeners can expect more material from them in some capacity.

"Yeah, I've talked to Tip," B.o.B revealed during an exclusive interview with HipHopDX. "He seems like he's real focused now that he's out, and it's like he's got something to prove. We worked on some stuff for my album and some stuff for his album. We came up with a banger--might I add that. I'm excited to see what he's gonna do, and I'm excited to see what the songs we've made are gonna do.".

And while B.o.B is a relative newcomer to those who haven't been following his rise via the Web and mixtape circuit, T.I. has previously enlisted his services as well as those of fellow Decatur native Playboy Tre.

"Me and B.o.B wrote the hook
to 'Slide Show' [then] John Legend sung it," says Playboy Tre. "To have two artists who I have the highest amount of respect for record a song that was your concept is a great feeling."

In the meantime, B.o.B has released his May 25th mixtape in conjunction with DJ Drama and DJ Sense. Tre is also planning to keep his name buzzing with an upcoming project entitled, Last Call. Get the Download Here:B.O.B. May 25th Download

Raekwon Reveals Group Album Name, Release Date

As the buzz continues to grow for Raekwon, Ghostface Killah and Method Man's group album, The Chef has finally provided some major details about the project.

After going through multiple name changes, it seems the trio has settled on a final choice - as well as a release date. “Yo, March 9th, Three, the Hard Way album coming,” said Rae in a video to XXLMag.com, recorded during his tour in Canada. “Me, Ghost, Meth, get ready. We gonna be shooting a video next month or something… Everybody get ready.”

The album, which was first discussed following the release of the Wu-Tang Clan's 8 Diagrams, has been previously referred to by the names Shaolin vs. Wu-Tang and Wu-Massacre. The album also saw a number of delays.

"Our Dreams," presumably a track off of the album, was released just weeks ago.

****DETOX NEWS**** Warren G speaks on the Detox

In related news, Warren G recently talked about Dre's "Detox" saying that not only is he being considered for a song but the time Dre is spending with Snoop speaks to the album status. "Yeah, he gonna drop it, I mean, he's just, he's a perfectionist," Warren promised in an interview. "So when he feels right, that's when he's gonna let it go but I think he's close because when he starts working with Snoop Dogg, that's when I know he's getting down to the wire. Me and him are supposed to do a record on there, he said as soon as he finds the right record, with the right melody, we'll do it. So you know, I'm gonna be waiting so if I'm on Detox this time, cool. If not, I think it'll be something that the world would love to see because it's never been done, the publicity on it will be huge it's like 'Warren G and Dr. Dre doing a song? That's crazy.'"

The Game Ready to release his R.E.D. album




Game had confirmed that he would retire after his 2008 album, LAX. However, he announced that he would release another album titled D.O.C. or Diary of Compton, if he could get production from the original N.W.A members.In November 2009, HipHopDX interviewed Game and he stated that the reason he would not release D.O.C. was because he needed help from Dr. Dre, Ice Cube and Snoop Dogg.

In 2009 he confirmed the title The R.E.D. Album and that the title was to signify his "RE-Dedication" to hip-hop. The album was set to be released on December 1, 2009 but was pushed to December 8, 2009. However, Game has pushed the album back to February 16, 2010 because Dr. Dre wanted more time to finish production for the album.

"Krazy" was released as a street single on October 29, 2009. It features Gucci Mane and production by Timbaland."Big Money" was released as the first official single also on October 29, 2009.

Game recorded with Timbaland and Drumma Boy in Los Angeles. Game revealed to MTV that he had been working with J. R. Rotem, Mike Lynn, Cool & Dre and hopes to get production from Kanye West. In an interview with XXL, Boi-1da stated that he had given beats to Game for the album. Game stated that Dr. Dre and Pharrell will be executive producing the album.

XXL confirmed features including Lil Wayne, Lady Gaga, Pharrell, Gucci Mane and Kanye West. Akon has also been confirmed to be featured on a track titled "Would I Be Wrong ?" with production from Polow da Don.

Dr. Dre On Detox, Making The Perfect Record, And Beats By Dre

Eight years in the making and fans are still awaiting the release of possibly the most anticipated album of his career. Holdups as continuous as each calendar day, The Doc does not expect to drop Detox before 2011.

"I got some shit coming, believe me," he tells The Guardian this weekend at Best Buy while promoting his Beats By Dre high end headphones. "I'm just trying to be a creator in among all this shit that's going on," he added.

Chairman of Interscope Records, Jimmy Iovine, who also happens to be Dr. Dre's retail partner, explained their thinking behind Beats. "Three years ago we were talking about the deals that acts do," Iovine recalls. "We said, 'We gotta do something about sound.' We went from analogue to digital and the digital revolution all went terribly wrong. So we said, 'Screw the sneakers, let’s get into headphones and speakers'", he continued.

So when is Detox dropping? "I just want to get my music out and make sure that it's heard in the right way. That's all I give a fuck about," Dre commented, beating around the bush. "I have to go out to clubs now [to prepare for Detox's release]. You need to understand what people are listening to."

When asked if Dre had yet created the perfect record for Detox, he replied, "I don't think I've done that record yet. I'll know what it is when it comes; I know exactly what it is in my head, but I haven't done it yet. It's close."

Lupe Fiasco speaks on his new album Lasers



On Monday night, Lupe Fiasco appeared on the DJ Green Lantern's Invasion Radio Show where he dicussed details about his third studio album, and the status of Child Rebel Soldier, the Hip Hop group composed of himself, Kanye West, and Pharrell Williams.

The Chicago native recently considered retirement due to a disillusionment with the industry, leading to the postponement of his third LP, which was previously titled LupE.N.D. Now, Lupe says he's already delivered the album, Lasers, to Atlantic Records.

"Im actually going in to turn it into the label in the morning [Tuesday]," he told the radio show yesterday. "I was actually supposed to turn it in tonight. And I'm just keeping it crispy with my fans now. I'm not going to be like 'Yeah it'll be out soon!' I'm turning it into the label tomorrow. They're going to go through their processes, see what they need to do, pick whatever singles they want to do. And I'm hoping [the album will come out] before the summer. That's just what it is."

In addition, Lupe assured that the CRS collaboration with Kanye and Parrell is still in the works, having already recorded four unreleased tracks. "I'm not even going to stray anybody like that. Pharrell hit me the other day and said we need to go back in the studio and do some more songs. I don't know what Kanye's doing, but we'll figure it out."
