Two of the hottest artists many are keeping an eye on in 2012 join together in the video for “Stunt.” The collaboration can be found on 2 Chainz’s T.R.U. Realigion mixtape. Speaking of the man formerly known as Tity Boi, over the weekend he announced his debut album Based On A T.R.U. Story will arrive on August 14. For now, watch his brand new video above.
After the jump, MTV takes us on set of “Riot” with 2 Chainz and DJ Drama…..
It’s been a little while since we’ve got a new episode behind-the-scenes of The Throne’s viral blog courtesy of VOYR. In this new clip titled “The Band” we’re introduced to some of the key players responsible for such an extravagent show. We get to see key people such as Omar Edwards (keyboards), Mike Dean (producer/keyboards/guitars) and Kanye’s DJ, Million $ Mano (producer of 2 Chainz’s latest song). Kanye West and Jay-Z bring their live show to Europe starting May 20.
After teasing us with the first installment of his Art Dealer Chic EP series, Miguel returns with Vol. 2. The R&B crooner releases three new songs this go around which includes “Arch N Point,” “ALL,” and “Broads.” Expect the Vol. 3 to drop the end of April.
It was kinda trippy ’cause I didn’t know that was the plan. I definitely didn’t realize all of us were going to be dressing up as Marilyn… Madonna kept on calling it the bar scene… I just didn’t think it was that shot with us three dressed as Marilyn, like I didn’t mentally prepare for that.
When I walked on set and saw Madonna, I literally gasped because I felt like I was looking at Marilyn Monroe and I’m so obsessed with Marilyn Monroe… Like, I have Marilyn Monroe pictures all over my house.
When I saw Madonna, she really to me was Marilyn Monroe and it was very surreal because it’s like, I almost felt like I was doing a video with my two idols at the same time. It was like, very very strange.
She had these distant, sort of like very dreamy eyes like Marilyn, like kind of distant but very there and very in charge—but almost like in their own world. And it was just so surreal, you know, just to walk downstairs and see her standing there. I was just like, Wow.
Fabolous is about to pull off a heist, and asks the assistance of three ladies in the video for “She Did It.” For his new video, Loso sticks with director Aristotle of By Any Means and the two deliver another solid video. The song can be downloaded off Fab’s There Is No Competition 3 mixtape.
Check out three more videos from Machine Gun Kelly, Elle Varner, and Tank after the jump…..
We’re pretty aware of the rapper fued going on between Harlem’s Azealia Banks and the Aussie Iggy Azalea. Both of these newcomer female MCs made quite a splash in 2011. Banks scooped up a deal at Universal and Iggy was signed to T.I.’s Grand Hustle, most recently.
However, Azealia was quite annoyed after XXL picked Iggy as one of their Freshman 10 rappers. She quickly fired off on Twitter and called out Iggy for being a racist. It all stems back to a song where the Iggy wrongfully referenced “Slavemaster” in a verse. Even after T.I. came to Iggy’s defense, Banks went even harder and fired off at the kang by calling him “corny.” It’s pretty clear that Iggy doesn’t want beef but it doesn’t seem like Azealia is ready to back down yet. And now to add another chapter to this story, Harlem’s A$AP Rocky has chimed in defense of his “woman?”
(5:05 min mark) “Shout out to Azealia, she’s probably mad at us, though. Her boyfriend was A$AP AV, we know her and we talk about that. Not bad, but like ‘assholes!’ [Laughs]
“They gotta cut it out, that’s some bullshit. Iggy is not racist. Trust me, trust me. That’s some bullshit. I think that’s petty for Azealia because.. c’mon don’t pick on [Iggy] because she’s white. That’s a low blow.”
A-Track has been working on the new Fool’s Gold Records compilation album Loosies for some time now. Last night, he dropped a new track from the upcoming project. On “Piss Test,” Juicy J and Danny Brown lend vocals to an ’80s inspired beat.
