Ray J looks like he’ll be throwing some shade Kanye West & Kim K’s way when the single drops on April 9th.
TMZ has obtained portions of the lyrics from the upcoming single, which make very clear references to both Kim and Kanye. Read the lyrics below.
“She might move on to rappers and ballplayers
But we all know I hit it first.
I had her head going North and her ass going South
But now baby chose to go West
No matter where she goes or who she knows
She still belongs in my bed.”
It’s also been reported that Ray Jay will be dropping a video for the single, which will feature a Kim K lookalike.
UPDATE: Check out the song below
As reported by MissInfo, Kid Cudi has announced his departure from Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music label. He made the announcement earlier today during an interview with Power 106 LA, and is aiming to make his own way and properly develop his artist King Chip. There have been warning signs leading up to this – Cudi has alluded to it on Twitter, and the official Indicud tracklist lacks features from the G.O.O.D. Music roster.
Here’s the audio from Cudi’s announcement:
The LP was projected to move 190-210k, and it did just slightly above that. IANAH2 pushed 217k copies off the shelves and into YMCMB fans’ hands. It was good enough to land Weezy at #2 on the charts, but not enough to knock out Justin Timberlake from the #1 spot. For comparison’s sake, Wayne’s last album, Tha Carter IV, moved 946k opening week.
Yesterday we reported on Too Short’s arrest for a DUI and drug possession. Short has since been released, but the charge of narcotics is not sitting well with him. Reports say that the rapper ditched hard drugs in the back of the police cruiser after being arrested by the cops. However, Too Short is claiming he had nothing to do with drugs.
Law enforcement sources say the drug was tested preliminary and may be meth, or may be Ecstasy laced with meth. Either way, Too Short says they aren’t his. A rep for the rapper told TMZ, “Short was diligently searched and cuffed prior to being placed in the disgustingly filthy patrol car.” The rep added, “It was 3 AM, the cop car smelled like vomit and was littered with remnants from prior arrests of the evening.”
However, the LAPD says that cop cars are searched thoroughly after each arrest and thus Too Short is getting the blame.
Too Short’s rep also clarified why the rapper felt he need to run from the cops initially, “In the past, Short, like many others, has been mistreated by law enforcement and these unfortunate prior incidents led to the complications after the stop.”
Finally, he assured fans Short was not in possession of any type of powder. “Any assertion that Short was carrying powder is ridiculous! Every rap fan knows Short’s into weed.”
In a recent interview with RapFix Live, Wale soberly discussed the potential impact of his next studio album, as well as his new approach to promotion and music in general:
“I’ve done everything I could do, I’ve said everything I could say. I’ve kissed the babies, I’ve shook the hands – now let’s let the music talk, because I ain’t about to come here and tell y’all exactly how I feel no more. I’mma let it all sing in the music,” he said. “I’m not even gonna do all that other stuff. I’mma talk with the music. Until my album drop, until June 25, I’mma talk loud with the music.”
He’s apparently no longer as concerned about sales, instead focussing on staying true to himself and and being more experimental with his music. Although tightlipped about the project, he did mention that he’s worked with the lead vocalist of R&B band Mint Condition, Stokley Williams. Otherwise, he pretty much advised fans to sit tight and prepare themselves for it.
“I’m giving you music, I’m giving you what the people need,” he said. “I’m tired of y’all rappers like, ‘I got four joints for the ladies, I got two for the club, I got three inspirational,’ … nah, paint a picture, show me wassup.”

Seems like he finally broke his “don’t do no press” rule, albeit briefly. Calling DJ Enuff, Kanye speaks on his position on MTV’s recent list as well as Big Sean’s position, before conceding the top spot to Wayne, the Cruel Summer criticism and more.
Wale’s recently been in the news for some outburts with fans and non-fans alike. While we’ve been seeing the less friendly side of the emcee, what most people would like to see from the MMG artist is music. Not to worry, because the rapper has an album and a mixtape on the way.
The D.C. native recently had an interview with Philly’s Power 99 and discussed what he has coming up. “I’m dropping my third solo album first, then a couple months after I’ll probably drop the Nothing project,” he said. “I’m very creative, I’m knee deep in that joint. It’s kind of like a persona; thing; I design my records and the sound a certain way for two different projects.” On top of these two solo projects, Wale has confirmed a joint mixtape with Meek Mill, which should be arriving after his LP and mixtape.
Although Wale has been criticized for turning to a more commercial or mainstream sound since signing with MMG, the rapper denied this during the interview, and says his upcoming album sounds “very, very soulful.” On his involvement in his projects as far as producing goes, he says, “I’m not producing per say, but I’m orchestrating the sound and sequencing,” he says of his involvement in his projects.
Wale said of the negative remarks regarding his sound, “I don’t think I ever really changed. My first album was ‘as commercial’ if not more so than the second one.”
It may comes as surprising, but the former Nickelodeon star, Nick Cannon, has announced he’ll be playing the role of Freeway Rick Ross in an upcoming film about the drug kingpin.
The two appeared in a video announcement sharing the news, and apparently the real Rick Ross has wanted Nick to play him since 1996. “I’ve been wanting him to play my role since ’96,” Freeway said. “We got hooked up, I met him I love his personality, know what I’m saying?”
Nick Cannon added, “We family now, we are going to get this thing right. However long it takes, his story has got to be told.”
Apart from Ross and Cannon’s announcement, there are not many details on the biopic. The writer for the film is appropriately enough, the writer of “Blow,” Nick Cassavetes.
Delays are nothing new in the music industry, especially the rap game, so when J. Cole announced his album wouldn’t be dropping as early as he had previously said, no one batted an eyelash. In a new interview with MTV News, Cole explained why his original release date for Born Sinner was a bad move.
The Cole World rapper said that his record label was cool with his original decision to drop the LP at the top of 2013, “They were cool with it, like ‘Whatever you wanna do’,” he said of Roc Nation and Columbia. He continued to explain, “Really that was a bad move. We decided that we got everybody playing on the same team and the same frequency. This is the sophomore album let’s not fuck around,” the Fayetteville native said. “Let’s really roll this out right, get the proper single, get the proper videos, proper brands. There are certain things that you can line up to make an album feel bigger.”
He says this time ’round he has the label’s full support, even more then when he dropped his debut, Cole World: The Sideline Story. “On this one we’re getting full label support,” he said. “We got a sync about us this go ’round that was not there on the first one, and it’s a beautiful thing.”
Although a date has yet to be formally announced for Born Sinner, J. Cole said in a recent interview that we can expect it around Tupac’s birthday, June 16th.
