The decision to push Mariah’s album back a few months ago wasn’t the result of her unfortunate fall on the set of the unfinished short film she was shooting for “#Beautiful” the remix featuring Young Jeezy.. Though we’re sure that would have caused a push back, the initial reason for the move was Kanye’s “Yeezus” album which was going to suck Def Jam’s promo budget for the 4th quarter DRY! Mimi and Mr West had reportedly been squabbling over promo dollars and Def Jam’s effect ions all year. Mariah, Rihanna and Yeezy are there three biggest, most lucrative artist but with sales down, money has to be divided and distributed more carefully.

Mariah released her second single from the album to remarkable reviews but slow downloads, that on top of Beyonce’s triumphant return has reportedly birthed a return to form. Mariah’s next single will either be her collaboration with Wale recorded this past fall or one of 3 heavy bass club tracks produced by either The Dream (Touch My Body) or her new co manager, Jermaine Dupre (It’s Like That)…

The album is slated for a February release and the title is being reconsidered in order to distance the project from the tanked second single… Sources say we could hear new music as early as the new year from Mimi!

This record is VERY important! Beyonce has become the King of Pop in the past 3 weeks, releasing the most fire we’ve seen from any artist all year and Rihanna’s hitting the Hot 100 like Joe Frazier, nailing down 2 more this year, 13 in all…. Mariah Carey is NOT ready to retire and she still has something unique to offer. She’s the last voice standing and she’s  use to being #1 above all! The material recorded over the past year and the strength of this promo campaign are said to be a reflection of that. We hope so! Good luck diva!

YES! HipHop icon meets hiphop icon for a second time! Nas collaborated with Mariah Carey more then 10 years ago for her “Rainbow” album and now they’ve finally made it back into the studio together.. We don’t know what the song is called but Nas is calling it “A banger” and seems really proud of the record and to be on wax with the diva again. He had the following to say in an interview with The Huffington Post:

In recent weeks you’ve been photographed in the studio with Mariah Carey and Jermaine Dupri. Will the collaboration appear on your album?

That’s on her album, and it’s a banger! I was excited to get back in the studio with her. She’s one of the greatest voices of our generation. She’s on another level. Just working with an artist that big really shows me how much further I can go. I’ve been inspired just sitting there talking to her. She’s very smart and extremely talented. And I’m just happy to work with her again.

The EP will include contributions from Dot Da Genius and King Chip, with “that classic Kid Cudder energy.”

“Now this will be a prelude to Man on the Moon 3,” he explained. “It’s all attached to the story. When Man on the Moon 3 comes out, you’ll be able toplay this EP and segue into Man on the Moon 3. It will be a seamlessconnection.”

Future Dropped From Drake Tour!!

Oh snap!! It got real! The tour is about to be underway, a 39 date spread but somebody forgot they place…

According to Page Six, Drake demanded that the “Honest” rapper be removed from his tour after reading an unfavorable interview on Billboard.com, in which he criticized Drake’s album Nothing Was the Same.

He was quoted as saying: “Drake made an album that is full of hits but it doesn’t grab you. They’re not possessive; they don’t make you feel the way I do.’”

The story was later removed after Future’s managers claimed that his quotes were off the record and taken out of context.

However, Drake was so angry that he immediately demanded Future be pulled from the tour. “He told his agent either Future gets fired, or he’ll fire him,” a source told Page Six.

Future was fired, but there were negotiations to bring him back late last week. However, he pulled out for good over the weekend after Drake’s camp demanded he make financial concessions.

Future, who was set to earn about $40,000 per show, is set to file a lawsuit this week against Drake for lost wages in the amount of $1.5 million.

Reps for both Drake and Future had no comment. A rep for Billboard told Page Six: “We regret that miscommunication surrounding Future’s recent visit, one that seemed clear to us was on the record, may have caused any trouble for the artist.”

Future was set to join Drake and Miguel on the 39-city “Would You Like a Tour?” trek, which kicks off Friday in Pittsburgh.

UPDATE:

Future has dropped the law suit and has been added back to Drake’s tour! The show opened the other night and the two seemed cool again on stage. Drake also brought out Jhene Aiko and Wiz Khalifa as special guest! #squashed
