As they plan “The Next Big Thing” Super Bowl commercial, Samsung has drafted Seth Rogen and Paul Rudd to help—only thing is, they can’t actually mention the Super Bowl (unless they want to get sued, that is). This hilarious 60-second trailer finds the Hollywood funny guys pitching their ideas to Bob Odenkirk, best known as the slick-talking Saul Goodman from Breaking Bad, while trying to dodge the legal hurdles. So, ladies and gentlemen, get ready to tune in to watch “the big plate featuring the San Francisco 50-minus-one-ers and the Baltimore Black Birds” this Sunday!

The full two-minute ad, plus an extended cut version with never-before-seen footage, will be debuted later this week. Viewers will have the chance to win prizes by tweeting out their favorite moments from the commercial, including the hashtag #TheNextBigThing.

For those who missed out, Hot 97 are streaming last night’s Who’s Next showcase at SOB’s from noon today. The event was headlined by Mr. “All Gold Everything” Trinidad James, with support from Harlem MC Vinny Cha$e.

Jeremih definitely had one of the most slept on R&B mixtapes of 2012. Late Nights came out last August, but stayed relatively under the radar for the most part. I can’t say he’s reinventing the wheel, but his melody and tone always seem to one with any beat he croons over. For his latest remix, Jeremih taps Weezy to assist on “All The Time.” By the way, did you catch his hook on Game’s “All That”?

Fresh off the release of his Wrath of Caine mixtape, Pusha T appeared on 106 & Park yesterday to digest his recent and upcoming power moves. The G.O.O.D. Music MC spoke on his two Grammy nominations (Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song, both for “Mercy“), how a Big Daddy Kane song inspired his aforementioned mixtape and painted us a picture of what a G.O.O.D. Music studio session is like. Pusha also offered (yet another) update on the rumored G.O.O.D. Music album, Cruel Winter:

I can’t really speak on the Cruel Winter album as of right now. I can’t say that there’s one coming out, but there’s a lot of music floating around in them studios, [from] all of us, all the whole G.O.O.D. Music gang, so just wait and see what it is.

Pusha’s debut solo album, My Name Is My Name, is due out this Spring via G.O.O.D. Music/Def Jam.

Check out Pusha T’s appearance on 106 & Park, plus watch him breakdown “Millions,” “Doesn’t Matter” and “Blocka” off Wrath of Caine with Fuse after the jump…


During an interview the Wall Street Journal earlier this month, The Game’s manager, Dontay “Taydoe” Kidd, expressed his intentions to reunite Game and his long-time nemesis, 50 Cent. Now it looks like the rapper himself is down with the initiative, too. Last night, the Compton MC asked his fans on Facebook to “take a minute to vote here for a G Unit Reunion,” linking to the website GUnitReunion.com. The petition has already gathered over 5,000 online signatures, but whether a reunion will actually happen is another thing; it was just last week when 50 Cent told Forbes he thinks that is unlikely.

Fellow founding member Tony Yayo also recently shared his two cents on the state of G-Unit. Speaking to MTV News, the rapper said he would love to see a reunion, but was upset with The Game’s efforts to bring down the brand with his G-Unot campaign in the late ’00s. He also added that relationships in the group where better when they were broke.

Would you guys like to see Fif and Game back together?

Yesterday, Entourage fans finally got the good news they’ve been waiting for since the show ended in 2011. Almost immediately after the HBO series concluded, rumors of a full length movie spread through Hollywood and the blogs. In the past, Mark Wahlberg talked about being open to doing the film, but remained adamant about taking his time to make sure it was done right with Entourage creator/writer Doug Ellis.  MTV was the first to get Marky Mark on the phone to discuss the preliminary details.

Well, hopefully [we’ll shoot in] spring. Spring or summer. May, June, depending on scheduling. But hopefully as soon as possible. And then release, I mean, either a summer movie or a fall movie, depending. But I like the summer. I like April, May [next year].
I mean, we always felt like it was a movie, but we had to just make these 30-minute episodes. That was one of the one of the frustrating things. It always felt like we left the audience wanting more, which is a good thing in doing television. I think its story and its characters were a world people really missed and really enjoyed.

Did she lip-synch at President Obama’s Inauguration? Who cares. Because Beyoncé will be the star of the Super Bowl halftime show this Sunday (Feb. 3) in New Orleans. For a performance of this magnitude, it’s no surprise there’s plenty of rehearsal hours being put in, and Mrs. Carter takes us behind-the-scenes of the first day with the video and snapshots below. The clip may only be brief, but it definitely suggests we’re in for a spectacle of a halftime show. Just check out that dance routine.

As previously announced, Bey will be joined on stage by fellow Destiny Child’s members Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, where they will perform their new single, “Nuclear.” She is also expected to close out her performance by debuting a never-before-heard song off her upcoming fifth solo album.

50 Cent cleans up and throws on the suit in “We Up,” his new collaboration with G-Unit’s Kidd Kidd and TDE’s Kendrick Lamar. Before we get the full song, 50 gives us a two-minute visual preview directed by Elf Rivera. Along with enjoying bottles and flaunting cash, the teaser includes some dancing eye candy. Expect the song to appear on Kidd Kidd’s upcoming untitled mixtape. 50 Cent’s Street King Immortal album is due this spring.

M.O.P.’s Lil Fame and Termanology collaborated for the full-length LP, Fizzyology, late last year, and today they share the visuals for the Bun B-helped “Hustler’s Ringtone” cut. The trio hit up the studio, the Gillette Stadium and, of course, the streets as they spread their brand of no-nonsense hip-hop. Ringtone rap may be on the decline (thank God), but hustlers gotta get a phone call to something, right? (Via HHNM)

Self-proclaimed “Pretty Muthaf*cka” A$AP Rocky and Mr. “Panty Wetter” himself Trey Songz are sure to grab the ladies’ attention on their new (and first-time) collaboration, “Same B*tch.” The harmonious, high-energy cut finds the Harlem MC stunting through his verses while Songz croons on. This track is off DJ Spinatik’s upcoming Street Runnaz 72 mixtape.
