Big Sean has transformed from a young Detroit rapper with a dream to bonafide rap star since his debut album, Finally Famous, was released in 2011. From ending the relationship with his childhood sweetheart, to getting engaged then “dodging a bullet” from GLEE star Naya Rivera, to purchasing his dream home in Los Angeles, the G.O.O.D. Music rapper’s last 4 years have been a roller-coaster, and he details the entire ride i]on his third studio effort, Dark Sky Paradise.

Last Friday (Feb 6), MissInfo.TV was at the Soho House in Los Angeles to take in the first official listening session for Sean’s new album — slated to be released on Feb 24. XXL was there, and so was MTV and VIBE, but we have something extra. Marisa Mendez for Missinfo.TV

missy elliott super bowl

Yes, Katy Perry’s Super Bowl halftime show looked like an even scarier version of Channing Tatum’s hallucination in 22 Jump Street, but credit where credit’s due: she broke off a slice of the biggest show on Earth to let one of hip-hop’s true legends, Missy Elliott, rock out (and subsequently steal the show with a medley of decade-old hits that clearly still ring out today).

Miss Info: Hold up! Before you bow down to Missy’s freshly-reinstated greatness…here’s a little #MissInfoExclusive ; ) We heard an unreleased remix from Diplo and Skrillex (aka Jack U) of their massive pop/dance hit “Take U There” but this one featured two incredible verses from our girl Missy Elliott, not just spittin’ in high heeheeheeheehaw form, but also giving up a little buttery “Hot Boys” melody too. We’re as ready for this Missy renaissance as the rest of the world…and even though this collabo was recorded before all the Super Bowl hype, it would just in time to catch the wave. Hope to be able to share the remix with you guys soon!

wara from the nbhd if guns could speak

Wara From The NBHD was behind one of last year’s most slept-on projects, Kidnapped, an N*E*R*D-infused narrative of a street hustler named Piano Lessons who runs into the type of trouble that’s all-too-familiar for black kids across America. On his forthcoming EP If Guns Could Speak, however, the Atlanta-via-Brooklyn MC is broadening his scope with military-style intensity, as you’ll soon discover on the project’s first single/video, “Protect N Serve.”

Here’s a new joint from two of ATL’s shining stars. Goin’ straight Beast Mode, Future sticks to what he knows and talks that street sh*t on “Real Sisters.”

Earlier today, we heard a new joint from Usher and Migos that will also be included on the Digital Trapstars and WeGlobal mixtape Screens on Lock: 4th Quarter Press.

Rumor has it that Future and Zaytoven are cookin’ up a project together for release in 2015.

camron

Cam’ron posted an instagram video on Weds which was touching for those of us who knew and loved his late friend Huddy, but the message that went along with it also shocked Killa Cam music fans…

“Fresh off da flight.. To see my brother.. HUD 6 told me lastnite.. #AChangeGoneCome ..my last album.. #PurpleHaze2 this summer.. It’s been fun.. But HUD said we got other things to do. #Hud6″

Could this really be true? With the DJ Atrak x Cam’ron Federal Reserve project still unreleased, and a recent flow of hood movies and mixtapes…is Cam’ron really retiring from rap?

I reached out to Cam to get more details and here’s a short version of our convo…

Drake-Diddy-Revolt

What is it about club LIV in Miami that brings out the worst in people? Something aggro in the air at the legendary romper room of cut-out lycra dresses, white slacks, and indoor sunglasses…we’ve heard of fights involving Lebron’s mom, Teyana Taylor, and more. But on Sunday night, the massive Miami club was packed for DJ Khaled’s birthday party, and according to the rumor mill, Drake and Diddy had a physical altercation. This comes during the same weekend where Drake was accused by Chris Brown of having an affair with his now-ex-girlfriend Karrueche while he was in prison. (Drake sources seem to have planted a denial via TMZ)

Here’s what we know vs. what is being speculated…

It’s been a wild 4 days at sea with the Mad Decent crew and 2,500 rabid, booze filled fans. And, we’re surviving and having an incredible time in the process. We’re so used to being wrapped up in our rap world that anytime we can try something — MissInfo.tv is gonna try it. Last night, Diplo surprised the entire ship when he brought out his buddy and collaborator Skrillex for a surprise set as Jack U. Around 7:45 PM, the duo secretly popped up from the behind the stage and went right to work. The energy and atmosphere changing set definitely rocked the entire cruise ship.

riff-raff

It wouldn’t be a proper Mad Decent function with the man himself, RiFF RaFF. While Major Lazer cranked out the Dancehall infused EDM jams, Jody Highroller pulled up in a Versace life raft to debut his “CoCo” remix. The Conglomerate’s O.T. Genasis buzz single got a whole new makeover with RiFF RaFF spittin': “I’m in love with the Coco/got more hits than Sammy Sosa/bout to lose my composure.”

Travi$ Scott wasn’t the only one we caught setting the Mad Decent Boat Party on fire. During Major Lazer’s first set on Thursday night, ILOVEMAKONNEN joined Diplo and the crew onstage to perform “Wrist” and “Don’t Sell Molly No More.” As the special invited guest hit the stage, things went down a few BPMS,and OVO’s Atlanta faction turned the place out with his presence.
