    New Music: T-Pain feat. Lil Wayne “Can’t Believe It”

    There are a lot of speculations surrounding this new track by T-Pain feat. Lil Wayne “Can’t Believe It”. This track will be on T-Pain’s upcoming album Three Ringz and on Lil Wayne/T-Pain collaboration album He Rap, He Sings similar to Jay-z & R. Kelly (Best of Both Worlds). I really wonder how the collabo album is going to sound, but I am sure it’s going to be pure greatness!

    Of course, this track is produced by T-Pain and after listening to this song a few times, it’s really starting to grow on me. It’s a pretty HOT although Lil Wayne is on for two seconds. So what do you think – vote below

    Freestyle Central: Ludacris//Kanye West//T-Pain & Young Cash

    Ludacris – Big Ass House (over Rick Ross “The Boss”)

    Finally, Ludacris posted a freestyle “Big Ass House” to prove that he still got it. And believe me, he does.

    He is reportedly working on his sixth album “Theater In The Mind” schedule for release in September/October 2008. Be sure to check the blog for his new single.

    Kanye West – “Jigga My Nigga” Freestyle

    Kanye West leaked a freestyle over Jay-z “Jigga My Nigga” beat. He ain’t bad over this beat but he sounds a bit different. (Or it might just be me).

    T-Pain & Young Cash – “A Millie ” Freestyle

    I honestly thought people were done with the “A Millie” freestyle, but I guess not. T-Pain & Young Cash made an attempt to rap over the “A Millie” beat. It’s a Hot freestyle but too damn long.

    Thanks to BB for the music!

    Special thanks to my homeboy Heinz, he put me on to these guys – Pacific Division.

    Representing Los Angeles, California, this trio consists of two brothers Like and Mibbs along with close friend BeYoung. Having been together since high school days, they broke into the music scene after realizing their passion for hip hop music. Pacific Division started to enormous amount of attention from local events and the Internet including MySpace where Pharrell from the Neptunes contacted them for a possible opportunity to work with him. In addition, they got a chance to meet up with Questlove of the Roots where they had the opportunity to pass their demo in which Questlove offer his support to the upcoming trio.
    Now in 2008, they recently got signed to Universal Music – Motown and is working on their debut album hoping to be release by the end of the year.

    Check out the video below – they talk about being yourself is important and Big Mac. Remember where you heard Pacific Division first, because you will be hearing a lot about these guys!!


    • After watching this video – I want a damn Big Mac (I’ve been McDonald’s free since April 2008)

    Christina Milian feat. Voyce Alexander – “All We Need To Know”
    Christina Milian has been working on her fourth album which is set to be release sometimes this year. I found of one of her songs floating around the internet that features T.Dot’s own singer/songwriter Voyce Alexander. He is currently working with Bryan Michael-Cox and has written a bunch of songs including Day 26 “Got Me Going”. This song produced by Bad Boys producer “Se7en Aurelius”

    Lloyd – “I Can Change Your Life”
    Lloyd has really been growing on me. I always get this Michael Jackson vibe from him and this track shows that quality. “I Can Change Your Life” is one of the songs off his upcoming album “Lessons In Love” out in stores August 5th, 2008. Produced by Oak.

    Special Thanks to BB for proving the new music.

    That’s What’s Up: Lil Wayne Blog #2

    Lil Wayne posted his second blog while he was on the video shoot for his second single “Got Money” feat. T-Pain (This is my joint ya’ll!!!) He gave thanks everyone who did and didn’t picked up the album. (That’s quite interesting). He had also stated that he would be posting another video blog but that hasn’t hit the Internet world yet. I wonder if he will do a video blog while he is in Toronto for his concert.

    Drama In The Air: Mariah & Nick’s Marriage in Trouble

    June 27.08 @ 12:52 am
    Posted By: admin

    Did you see this coming? Cause I know I did. Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey are facing trouble with their marriage after the couple tied the knot two months ago. Sources are claiming that Mariah is too much of a diva and requires Nick to do everything for her. An insider said “Nick does whatever Mariah wants him to — he’s like her puppy”. Apparently he is spending a lot of time using her credit card more than spending time with her. (What a marriage!)  Another close source says “the marriage will most likely last six months.” In that case, it’s pretty sad to hear about this but hate to say ” i told you so”.

    It is clear to me that Nick Cannon is WHIPPED!!! (Yes I said It – he is WHIPPED!!) I can’t understand why he is acting like he has no backbone. But at the same time, this is what happens when you marry someone after seeing each other for only six weeks. My advice to Nick Cannon is to Man-UP!!!

    Worst Case Scenario:

    So what happens if they get a divorce? Do they have a pre-nupital agreement? What will happen to Mariah’s tattoo? Better yet,  what will happen to Nick’s “Mariah” tattoo on his back? I honestly think it’s fake and I am calling it out. Remember I am the first to say it. FAKE!

    New Music: The D.E.Y. “And I Miss You”

    June 26.08 @ 2:20 am
    Posted By: admin

    The D.E.Y. composed of Divine, Élan, and Yeyo is a latin, r&b, hip hop, pop trio reppin’ New York and Puerto Rico. Following the footsteps of The Fugees and Black Eyed Peas, they are on the rise to take over a gap that hasn’t been touch in over two years. With the combination of latin, hip hop, pop and r&b, this group can attract a huge capacity of people to their music.

    Their second single “And I Miss You” from their debut album “The Dey Has Come” which contains a classic hip hop sample of Gangstarr – “Mass Appeal”. (For those who don’t know this song – peep the podcast.) Produced by Havoc, this track has a nice hip hop, r&b rhythm to it and will invite the old school hip hop heads like myself to preview the track. “The Dey Has Come” has not been scheduled for release but I am assuming it will hit stores late summer/early fall. (But I may be wrong)

    Peep the single.
