Nasty Nas made his way to California for a visit to Conan on Thursday night. With special guest Anthony Hamilton by his side, Nas and the soulful singer perform their Life Is Good cut “World’s an Addiction.” If you’re in the tr-state area for New Year’s Eve, the Queens MC will bring in the new year with a special concert at New York City’s Radio City Music Hall.

The Game celebrates his 33rd birthday (on Nov. 29) with a gift for his fans.

The bouncy tune produced by Timbaland won’t appear on The Game’s upcoming Jesus Piece album due December 11.

After dropping off her captives in New York City last week, Rihanna jetted off to spend the Thanksgiving weekend with her new/old/re-boo Chris Brown who has been touring out in Germany. The first signs of their rendezvous was when she instagrammed a photo of a man laying in her bed…and fans quickly recognized Chris Brown’s back tattoos. Then there was the photo of Rihanna coyly posing from behind, topless, in thighhighs, sneakers and boyshorts. So it was only a matter of time before these two compulsive exhibitionists just posted a photo of themselves together for the world to see….and for Rihanna, I’m sure this was also directed at one particular girl in LA.

Earlier this evening, Pusha T hit the stage at New York City’s Best Buy Theater for VIBE’s V-Mix concert with A$AP Mob and A-Trak.

Set to be released on G.O.O.D. Music/Def Jam, the album will arrive early 2013. Before then, the Virginia spitter will end the year off with his Wrath of Caine mixtape.

When you first heard Rihanna’s lead-off Unapologetic single “Diamonds,” perhaps you wondered…hmm, Rihanna sounds a bit different here, especially around the hook area. Maybe it reminded you of LDR, or Yukimi….or if your ear was especially sharp, Australian pop singer/songwriter Sia…because Sia wrote the song, and clearly referenced it for Riri. Even if you don’t recognize Sia by face or name, you’ve heard her plaintive killer voice on those huge songs that play in Vegas dance clubs or on Gray’s Anatomy etc. I loved her tearjerker “My Love” on the The Twilight Saga: Eclipse soundtrack too. (yup. owning that one)

So at the recent Norwegian-American Achievement Awards, Sia sang a stripped down, ballad-version of “Diamonds”….and murdered it.

The season has arrived, and the beautiful Marsha Ambrosius has the soundtrack for the harsh winters with the song “Cold War.” The Diplo and Maxime Picard-produced single finds the songstress bellowing her heart out on the follow-up to “F*ck N Get It Over With.” Marsha’s new single will appear on her sophomore Friends & Lovers album, due in 2013. Along with Diplo, the LP will also include contributions from Pop & Oak, Elijah Blake, and long-time collaborators Dre & Vidal.

They’ve collaborated many times, responsible for some of our favorite radio hits. Now, Chris Brown and Big Sean share the cover of XXL‘s upcoming December/January issue. For his first major interview in two years, Breezy reflects on his career to this point, maturing as a person, his much-talked about altercation this summer, and his love life in the public eye. You can pick up a copy when it hits newsstands nationwide on December 4.

“A lot of people wanna know about the whole situation with me, Drake and Meek Mill. At the end of the day, I’m me, they’re them. They rap, I sing. Totally different caliber. I rap, I play around on mixtapes. But our words don’t collide as much as you’d think.

One thing people often want me to talk about is my public love life. When it comes to my love life, the perception seems as though I am a player. But that’s not true. Love is something I am still learning. It’s just an obstacle that I haven’t yet mastered. I think that’s my biggest hurdle in life.”

Check out the alternate cover with Big Sean below…..


MMG’s resident crooner is back with his first mixtape under the tutelage of Rick Ross. In my opinion Omarion really made Self Made Vol. 2 complete. His vocals helped bring cohesiveness to the compilation. Now with help from Problem, Tank, Joe Budden, Trae The Truth and Wale, the kid presents Care Package.

Kris Humphries, your bitter wish has been granted. Kanye West has been deposed in the dramatic and drawn-out divorce proceedings between Humphries and Kim Kardashian. According to The Associated Press, ‘Ye will be forced to testify in the case to annul their 72-day marriage, which Humphries believes to be a fraud. Kim’s lawyer says her reality star client is trying to move on from the ordeal, but is “handcuffed” to her ex-husband since the case is still not ready for trial. When all documents are prepared, the trial may begin sometime next year. Whenever this spectacle is scheduled to happen, let’s hope cameras are there to capture Yeezy’s testimony.

Sound off: Do you think Kanye’s deposition will help or hurt Humphries’ case?
