  • On Air: NBA Finals Game Five: Ashanti sings the National Anthem

    June 16.08 @ 2:01 pm
    Posted By: admin

    Last night, the NBA Finals Game Five took place in Los Angeles’ Staple Center. Unfortunately Boston Celtics didn’t take it home with the win.  The series is now 3 – 2 (Celtics) and the last two games takes place in Boston Soil. Will they bring it home? We will have to wait and see.

    Ashanti got a chance to perform the National Anthem at the game last night and she did an amazing job. Her voice is really growing on me as well as her style. Her outfit was killer too! Peep the video below!!

    Peep Kardinal Offishall performing “Dangerous” with Akon. I am extremely happy for Kardinal. He has definitely come a long way and his passion for music allowed him to get to this point where is he at right now. Dedication is the key for all you young bucks that are really trying to make it in the music industry.


    Gotta love Kardinal’s two steps!!!

    So the awards definitely went down last night in Toronto outside the MuchMusic building. It’s a free event and people have been waiting from the wee hours in the morning. So you know it’s serious that people want to experience this live event and wait all day to do so.

    I am not going to even write anything about the awards because a friend of YFN (Stacey-Star) summed up everything in her blog last night. Peep here

    (l-r: unknown, Kardinal, Akon, Benny D of Rockcity, Lindo P)

    Last night was the 2008 MuchMusic Video Awards. And like every awards, there has got to be a red carpet. Unfortunately, we were not in sunny California where the sun always shine because we definitely needed a bit of that last night. Rain or shine the show must go on! There were some hits and some misses at the Red Carpet, but you be the judge.

    Quick Note: Chris Brown was not spotted last night. At least YFN tried.


    New Music Video: Flo-Rida//Snoop Dogg//Pussycat Dolls

    Flo-rida feat. Will.I.Am “In The Ayer”

    Flo-Rida is back again with this third single “In The Ayer” featuring Will.I.Am. I really like this track for its 90’s pop, booty shaking beat. However, not sure if i like the video. It seems a lil mediocre to me, but aren’t all videos like that? I guess I had these high expectations. Peep the video and leave a comment or two.



    Say What Now? R.Kelly//Scott Storch//Lil Wayne

    R.Kelly Found Not Guilty

    After a grooling six-plus years since R. Kelly was charged with 14 counts of child pornography, R.Kelly was acquitted earlier today. The jury made up of nine men and three women, they reached a decision that R. Kelly was found not guilty on all counts charges. Apparently while the verdict was being read out, R.Kelly cried and repeatedly said “Thank You Jesus”. If he was found guilty, he would have been facing jail terms of 15 years.

    I understand the woman who was 13 years old at the time was not the girl on the sex-tape but I don’t understand how R. Kelly got off child pornography charges when everyone and they mother saw the videotape. (Don’t front – you know you seen it) I remember when R.Kelly said in an interview televised on BET that he isn’t the dude on the tape and there was no reason for him to view the tape if it’s not him. So then who is the dude on the tape? Some random guy that looks like R. Kelly – like come on. Give me a damn break. Money Talks!!!

    Case close – Literally!

    Scott Storch Wanted!

    Scott Storch is wanted by police after failing to attend his child-support hearing. The 34 year old producer to many artists including Paris Hilton, Lil Wayne and Fat Joe, has not supported his 2 year old Jalen for the past five months. He is behind 46,000 in child payments and 16,000 in Jalen’s Prepaid College Fund. (Damn only 16,000?? – how much is lil Jalen getting?) Not only is child support an issue but he seems to be in a lot of financial setbacks as of late. Not only does Mr. Storch owes child-support for his 2 year old son , but also owes over 500,000 in property taxes from the last two years. Personally that sounds pretty damn high for someone who constantly sporting in his Ferrari and high priced cars. That’s just my opinion. So the total brings him to – over 562,000. How much are his beats? I need the answer to that one.

    The Game & Keyshia Cole performs “Pain” on 106 and Park

    I really love this track. It definitely has that west coast feel to it. It’s such a great collabo.


    • I don’t like Keyshia Cole’ hair style but I do love what she is wearing (although its a bit big – calling stylist!!!)
    • Keyshia Cole makes a good hype-man (woman)
    • I know I’m late, but I ain’t feelin’ The Game’ Mohawk
    • Is it me or did Keyshia Cole got a brand new pair of teeth – yup she got some veneers (and I ain’t mad at her)
    • Oh no he didn’t – The Game tried to bust a lil dance move.. Nah bruh. Not a good look.

    Nelly feat. Jermaine Dupri & Ciara – “Stepped’ on my J’s”

    When I first heard this track, I was not feelin’ it. But after some serious force to listen to this song, it grew on me. The video isn’t that spectacular but I did catch a lot of  jokes from it. Peep my notes below. Also, Lil JJ makes a brief appearance in the video.


    • Did Nelly really have to be in the video topless? Was it that necessary?
    • Is it me or did Ciara lose weight?
    • Who does Jermaine Dupri think he is? Spike Lee? Shooot!
    • Didn’t Nelly already make a song about shoes? (Hint Hint: Nike Air Forces) Is that even legal?
    • OMG – Nelly’s acting is bogus!!!
    • I know JD is short, but dang how tall is Nelly if homegirl Ciara taller than you?

    Here is the list of the events – The Young, Fresh & New team plan to hit up! (or atleast one or two)

    Chris Brown “A Millie” Freestyle

    Like really? Are you effin kiddin’ me?? How many freakin’ versions are there???????????

    Well I must say that I am pretty impressed with this one. It’s on my Top Ten. In fact, I’mma blog about it after this one. (link) And I quote “and he’s making a millie, a millie, a millie, a millie..”

    LL Cool J feat. The Dream “Baby”

    When I first listened to this track, I immediately got this old school early ’90 r&b vibe. This is a great collaboration between LL Cool J and The Dream. In fact, The Dream produced this track. Yup! and I wonder what LL Cool J’s new and last album with Def Jam “Exit 13” is going to sound like. It is set to hit stores August 13th. I give it until October for this album to drop. Remember you heard it first.

    On Monday, TheKidFamous stopped by FLOW 93.5′ The Real Frequency Show. For those who don’t know about The Real Frequency, I suggest you do one of two things. 1) listen to FLOW 93.5 on Monday from 11pm to 1am or 2) Visit the website and subscribe to their podcast. With that said, Famous talks about how he got his start in the industry, upcoming projects he’s been working on and his opinions about the Canadian urban music industry. For all those up and coming artists, you can learn a thing or two from him.

    If you haven’t peep his latest video -“Big Man Tings” feat. Trinity Chris, I posted it on my blog earlier this week. Click here

    Be on the lookout of TheKidFamous “I Rap Now” EP hosted by Clinton Sparks coming this Summer!
