Great, another low budget so called remix. Further insulting the art of revamping tracks, Rihanna has released a somewhat reworked version of her new Mike WiLL Made It-produced song, “Pour it Up”, which features rappers Young Jeezy, Juicy J, Rick Ross and T.I.
The trick about album sales is that those figures don’t reflect causal factors. Luckily, those of us with the ability to read and understand how the US charts work, are able to analyse weekly numbers, such as those amassed by Rihanna’s Unapologetic LP during the last seven days.
The holiday season is generally known for several things: breaking our diets, spending time with annoying relatives and gift-giving. As a result of the last of those activities, music sales surge, and the moves on US charts by Bruno Mars, T.I. and Mariah Carey prove it.
The pre-taped 2012 BET Hip Hop Awards finally aired this evening and the show was action-packed. Aside from a notorious backstage clash between Rick Ross and Young Jeezy, the ceremony featured performances and cyphers by T.I, 50 Cent, Missy Elliott, Eve, 2 Chainz, Busta Rhymes and others.
T.I. ventured to New York City this morning to speak on ‘The Breakfast Club’ about his oft-delayed album, ‘Trouble Man’. The rapper, who announced earlier this week that the record will hit stores in the US on December 18th, also spoke about his new book, ‘Trouble & Triumph’.
T.I. made a visit to BET’s ’106 & Park’ studios yesterday to speak about his long delayed album, ‘Trouble Man’. Yet, instead of vaguely chatting about the record, as well as his clothing line, book deal and probation from prison, the rapper finally announced its new release date.
T.I. has come a long way from the hood. Well, at least physically because we all know that he still has a trap mentality (see his prison record if you don’t agree). To celebrate his transition, the rapper has released a new video for ‘Go Get It’, which depicts his rise to the top.
T.I. is moving on up to the east side; to that Vh1-sponsored castle in the sky. The self-proclaimed King of the South has released a preview of his new video for ‘Got Get It’ and it showcases how he climbed from the hood to a mansion.
Iggy Azalea has shared behind the scenes footage of her new video for ‘Murda Bizness’. Featuring her Grand Hustle Records mentor and boss, T.I, this is the first visual offering from Azalea’s upcoming debut album, ‘The New Classic’.
