Although Royce Da 5’9″ and DJ Premier’s collaborations are relatively slim, cuts like “Boom,” “Hip Hop” and, most recently, “Second Place” are the makings of a classic catalog. Well, good news, because it looks like the pair are working on a full-length project together.

Nickel Nine and Premo just dropped an appetizing teaser video for “PRhyme,” and although it doesn’t explain what “PRhyme” is exactly, the clip sees Royce waxing poetic over a classic dusty Preem beat. However, let it be known, “this is for the real hip-hop n****s who would never, ever, ever ask me if I’m here to replace Guru.”

Stay tuned for the official announcement coming soon.

Watch the teaser below…



Pharrell may have condemned his In My Mind phase as having “no purpose,” but we’re sure nobody would mind seeing him revisit his N*E*R*D days — and that might just be a reality. According to Mass Appeal, both Pharrell and Shay Haley hinted at new N*E*R*D music during P’s performance at the iTunes Festival in London last night.

twitter buy button

Twitter had made some big changes over the last 12 months, including a completely new profile layout and the first ever real-time Billboard chart, but this latest one is easily their most commercially ambitious. Today the social network began testing a new “buy” button, a feature which allows users to purchase products — whether it be clothes, electronics or indeed music — directly from their timeline.

Pharrell, Wiz Khalifa and Eminem are among some of the early musical adopters of this new service, while brands and organizations like Home Depot, Burberry and (RED) are also onboard. The button is currently only available to a small percentage of U.S. users during its testing stage, but Twitter promise that number “will grow over time.”

See how the new feature works below…


The 2014 MTV Video Music Awards are over, but while all eyes were on the main show and artists such as Beyoncé, Taylor Swift, and Usher, there were a few moments backstage that had social media buzzing. Right before going into a commercial break, cameras backstage caught Ariana Grande and Big Sean holding hands walking down a hallway. Leading up to Sunday night, rumors have been swirling about the G.O.O.D. Music rapper and pop singer being an item.

Another moment that had viewers talking happened after during the after show. As Nicki Minaj was being interviewed by MTV News’ Rob Markman, Iggy Azalea came over to congratulate Nicki on her performances. “You did great,” Azalea said to the Queen Barbz, as Minaj smiled and replied “Thank you baby.”

Treach and Cicely, Couples Therapy VH1

I’m all for therapy… for fighting couples, for happy couples, for individuals, umm, massage therapy, light therapy, equine therapy. Whatever it is…if you can afford it, by all means, therapute the hell out of yourself. But this Couples Therapy show…is like some kind of Wipe Out obstacle course for people who are in a relationship with their own ego but also sleeping someone who is likewise attention-obsessed. And it makes for some addictively cringeworthy television.
This season, Treach Criss and his girlfriend Cicely Evans join the fun house along with the most annoying person on that one season of Jersey Shore that I watched, Deena Cortese and her man, as well as porn star Jenna Jameson and her man. Bring the sorrow.

Seems like some high drama could be in store this season…especially since Treach may be off his rocker lately. Just look at his current demand that Naughty By Nature will only perform without the affable Vin Rock. But will it be fun crazy? Or just exhausting sad crazy? I’m predicting the latter.
And there’s no chance that it will be the surreal, hilarious, charismatic crazy of last season’s breakout star Ghostface Killah

It looks like things are over between Chris Brown and Kurreuche and both parties have moved on. TMZ says “Karrueche has not only broken up with him … for safe measure she changed her number.” Sources tell the outlet that she has officially let go of the singer and has cut off all communication with him.

Later, Chris was photographed in St. Tropez with one of Kurreuche’s friends and wasn’t shy about it one bit.

Miss Info: As we tweeted this morning, the “Welcome Home Remy” reports are a bit premature.
Remy Ma was expected to walk out of the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility today at 8am. She’s spent past 6 years in prison after being convicted of shooting a former friend in 2008. Her husband Papoose, managers, family members, friends, fans and camera crews stood outside for hours waiting for the 34-year old Reminisce Smith, with an assortment of fancy cars to take her home. But according to sources on the scene, around noon, prison officials came out and spoke to Papoose personally, and soon after, he and his crew left. In a strong show of restraint, Papoose was reportedly calm despite the news.

While it’s unclear why her release has hit a roadblock (parole officials would only confirm to Revolt that she’s still in custody), we were told that Remy Ma spent what was supposed to be the last week of her incarceration in solitary confinement. Her team did not believe it would delay her release…and she has club bookings and events waiting for her availability. While it’s unknown if officials were put off by the crowds outside, or if there was just a paperwork snafu…It’s clear from the photos (below) that Remy’s colleagues, friends, fans, and family are anxious to see her home.

Update: Remy was released at 3PM on Friday (Aug 1). Only her husband, Papoose, went to pick her up to avoid any other further complications. After the disheartening snafus yesterday, her whole team actually waited nearby just in case prison officials cleared up their issues with her alleged “phone violation”. When they finally got the good news today that she could leave, her husband Papoose went to pick her up without the crowds, cars, or camera crews to make sure officials had no excuse to complain…

Remy’s first verse over Khaled’s “They Don’t Love You No More.”



Only something really major could inspire Nicki Minaj to delay the debut of her new single “Anaconda“…especially after driving her male fans into cold showers with that much-debated thong pose…but just as Nicki hinted on twitter, she has good reason.

Our colleagues at HipHopWired hinted at the reason, so it looks like the cat is scratching it’s way out the bag…here’s what folks are buzzing about: Beyoncé and Nick Minaj have teamed up for the remix of Bey’s song “Flawless”…and to make the power collabo even more special…it’s possible that Beyoncé is spitting (not just singing) her verse.

It’s not the first time we’ve heard Bey rapping (she did it on her ode to H-Town too), and being married to one of the most famous MCs in the world has to rub off, but what if we get an actual Queen Bey x Nicki bar-for-bar duet? Curtains! Let’s hope the rumors are true.

If our sources are right, we won’t have to wait too long to hear the end result. Beyoncé and Nick Minaj, “Flawless (Remix).” Stay tuned.

Following in the footsteps of the other Mr. Carter, it looks like Lil Wayne might be making a move into the sports management business — and his first client could be one of the biggest soccer stars on the planet. According to TMZ, Weezy is starting his own sports agency, with Portugal and Real Madrid icon Cristiano Ronaldo being the first name on his roster.

fifty shades of grey EW cover

The Fifty Shades of Grey book trilogy…if you didn’t notice every woman on the train reading it, or chattering at the coffee shop about getting tied up and ravished by a mysterious rich dude…is a big deal. They sold 70 million copies in 8 months, making author E.L.James $95 million dollars in 2013, and now, of course, there’s a movie version.
The Today Show debuted the trailer this morning, so check out actress Dakota Johnson (daughter of Miami Vice‘s Don Johnson) as Anastasia Steele, and Jamie Dornan (from Once Upon a Time) as Christian Grey…
