Current Hip-Hop & R&B News


Lil’ Mo is back with new music! Club banger entitled “On The Floor”

It’s great to see Lil’ Mezzy back on the scene.  Her album slated to drop mid 2010!



Teairra Mari comes at ya’ll again with the ladies anthem” Sponsor,” pretty sure the ladies will eat this record up.

She brought Gucci and Soulja Boi aboard so it wouldn’t completely be a gold diggers anthem. Smart thinking Teairra

Song got a nice little bounce to it! Enjoy!!



For those who been tuning in to Making His Band on MTV,  by now I know you are familiar with the new group called Dirty Money (consists of Diddy, ex-Danity Kane member Dawn Richard and newcomer singer/songwriter Kalenna.)

” Love Come Down” is the first single off of Diddy’s September 22nd release “Last Train To Paris”

Caught “Making His Band” on a new night,  Saturdays @ 9pm on MTV



New single from Paula Campbell who I posted awhile back when Ciara shot her video for “Ain’t Nobody Stupid”

Catchy tune. This is the official first single from her album take a listen to Get Back To You



Finally a group came along with beauty, talent and class!!! Richgirl consists of four unique females, Seven, Lyndriette, Audra and Brave hailing from Calfornia, Flordia, North Carolina and Maryland.

Rich Harrison’s new female group reminds me of EnVouge, they each bring something to the group. “Lucky You Are” is the second single off of their debut album coming later in the fall.

If you attended Beyonce’s “I Am…” tour you saw these four beautiful ladies open up for Mrs. Carter.

Their first single, “He Ain’t With Me Now (Tho)” came out a couple months ago but never got the spins it deserved.

Rich Harrison is the man behind Jennifer Lopez’s “Get Right,” Beyonce’s “Crazy In Love,” and Amerie’s “One Thing.”

It was reported that rapper Drake torn his ACL’s a while back.

His doctor advised the rapper to take a couple weeks off from touring so he could heal properly, but as Drake told MTV news a couple days ago:

“I didn’t really get any approval from my doctor, but I made a personal decision 48 hours ago that I’d be letting a lot of people down if I didn’t show up and at least show them I’m there for them,”

Drake took the stage in Camden, New Jersey last night and at the beginning of “Best I Ever Had” the rapper fell on stage and had to be carried off stage.

If I tear my ACL again, the doctors say I might not be able to walk again. I have to be cautious.”

Lil’ Wayne stepped in for Drake joking saying:

“This nigga REALLY got a bad leg”

It’s been a minute since I blogged but by now I’m sure that everyone knows about the Nas & Kelis divorce. Well finally Nas has spoke to Straight.com about the whole situation and this is what he had to say:

“It’s unfortunate when business is out there about your personal shit, especially when you’re really not the guy to be having his shit out there,” Nas said. “The sad thing is, you’ve got to get used to it. My skin is so thick that I probably need to write a book for people who are not ready for anything crazy.”

“I heard that I was a cheater,” Nas told Straight.com. “It almost sounds like I was a bad husband. Not to say I was the greatest—I’m not perfect in anything I do—but I think I deserve a fucking trophy. If I do say so myself, without sounding too cocky, I gotta say I was a hell of a husband and a hell of a dad.”

It’s a sad situation that both Nas and Kelis divorce had to end messy like this, but for the sake of their child I hope they can get through all this foolishness.

It’s reported that Kelis will get over 55,000 a month in spousal and child support.
