Lil Wayne is poised to be one of the biggest artist of 2013, with an all new album coming in just a few months!

Our friends at RapUp report the following:

Lil Wayne unveils the cover art for his new album I Am Not a Human Being II. A red insect resembling a butterfly appears against a black backdrop on the unconventional artwork, which was designed by DONDA, the creative content company founded by Kanye West.

Previously due February 19, the follow-up to 2011’s I Am Not a Human Being will now arrive on March 26 featuring the Detail-assisted single “No Worries,” plus contributions from Juicy J, David Banner, StreetRunner, Kane Beatz, and Cool & Dre.

While Kanye didn’t produce on the album, he asked Wayne if he could design the artwork. “I’ma let ‘Ye do what he do. As long as it ain’t nothin’ out the box crazy. ‘Ye is ‘Ye, he’s a genius,” Weezy previously told MTV.

DONDA also designed the artwork for Wayne’s Mike WiLL Made It-produced single “Love Me” featuring Drake and Future. See it below.

We haven’t paid much attention to John since “Evolver”, his best album to date but he turned back to his dee r&b, elevator music after that, we don’t feel but he have an enormous amount of respect for him..

Kanye New Song “Perfect B****” Inspired By Kim Kardasian!!

Posted in ALBUMS, DEF JAM, G.O.O.D Music, HIPHOP, KANYE WEST, kim kardasian, NEW ALBUMS, NEW MUSIC, NEWS, POPULAR MUSIC, trueclefmusic, TRUECLEFMUSIC.COM with tags , , , , on August 8, 2012 by RJDAMONARCH

Mr West isn’t alone in thinking Kim Kardasian is perfect, there’s an army of fans that would make the same claim but most of us are STILL skeptical about there relationship… They’ve been friends for years, why date now, why Kimye after all this time?? If it is just for the press, they won’t come clean about it any time soon, Kanye’s praising his new lady and coming for his ex, Amber Rose on the new track “Perfect B****”! Our friends at RapUp report the following:

Kanye West is professing his love for Kim Kardashian on a new song. The rapper has dedicated “Perfect Bitch” to the current love of his life.

 According to the New York Daily News, the 35-year-old previewed new music while partying at PH-D Rooftop Lounge in New York City over the weekend. The material consisted of unreleased tracks from the upcoming G.O.O.D. Music compilation Cruel Summer and one indirectly referencingKim Kardashian and ex-girlfriend Amber Rose titled “Perfect Bitch.”

A source described the music as “a similar production style [to the one] he used on his wildly successful album with Jay-Z last summer, Watch the Throne.”

On “Perfect Bitch,” he raps about finding the perfect woman, with a number of references to Kardashian and Rose. The song reportedly uses the same melody from “Carmina Burana,” a 1937 composition by German musician Carl Orff. Nas and Diddy also sampled the song on their 1999 hit “Hate Me Now.”

Amidst the speculation, Kanye confirmed that the song was about his curvaceous girlfriend, tweeting, “I wrote the song Perfect Bitch about Kim.”

In addition to Cruel Summer, due September 4, Yeezy has been in the studio working on the follow-up to 2010’s critically-acclaimed My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.

Kanye West Spins Unreleased Music At NYC Club!!

Posted in ALBUMS, DEF JAM, G.O.O.D Music, HIPHOP, KANYE WEST, NEW ALBUMS, NEW MUSIC, NEWS, POPULAR MUSIC, trueclefmusic, TRUECLEFMUSIC.COM with tags , , , , on August 7, 2012 by RJDAMONARCH

Grammy Award-winning rapper/producer Kanye West has always had a flair for the dramatic – from media outbursts to his outsized music video projects and more. It appears that the enigmatic Chicago native was also feeling a bit charitable as well last Friday (Aug. 3) after hobnobbing with some of Hollywood and the modeling world’s elite.  While hanging out at New York nightclub PH-D Rooftop Lounge at Dream Downtown, Yeezy unleashed some new cuts from the upcoming G.O.O.D. Music compilation album Cruel Summer, much to the delight (and shock) of partygoers in attendance, reports the New York Post.

West was chopping it up with actor Leonardo DiCaprioThe Hangover director Todd Phillips, and modelErin Heatherton before he hit the booth at PH-D where DJ Reach was spinning. Armed with a laptop, West gave an impromptu sneak preview of unreleased tunes to stunned fans inside the club, reportedly lip-synching and dancing along to his songs.

According to an insider at the club reporting on behalf of the Post, Kanye’s act left many speechless. “The room looked stunned. People were standing around with jaws literally dropped,” said the spy.

Based on a report from ABC News, a song tentatively titled “My Perfect B**ch” which some allege was about his curvy girlfriend Kim Kardashian. West continued his set for 45 minutes, concluding with the previously released single “Way Too Cold” to cap off the evening.

Cruel Summer is set for a September 4 release.

Kid Cudi 4th Album, Reveals Tentative Features List!!

Posted in ALBUMS, DEF JAM, G.O.O.D Music, HIPHOP, KANYE WEST, KID CUDI, NEW ALBUMS, NEW MUSIC, NEWS, POPULAR MUSIC, trueclefmusic, TRUECLEFMUSIC.COM with tags , , , , on July 11, 2012 by RJDAMONARCH

We love Cudi but haven’t really lived for any of his records since “The Pursuit of Happiness”, one of our favorite records of all time!

We hope to see more of that with this 4th album, which shouldn’t be a problem considering Kanye is going to be at the helm of production and Cudi’s tapped some of the most talented artists in the industry to assist him!

We don’t see Drake, Nicki & Frank Ocean or Miguel on this list but think they’d be welcome additions!

Our friends at Rap-Up report the following:

Kid Cudi decided to leave the features off his rock project WZRD, but he’s called on some of his famous friends for his next album.

The G.O.O.D. Music signee is deep into recording his fourth LP Indicud, which he previously compared to Dr. Dre’s The Chronic 2001. He has already roped in some major features, which he revealed on Twitter.

“Features thus far, Kanye, Pusha, Jaden, Kendrick Lamar, Chip, Cage, got something for Hov I wanna play him, still gotta link w 50 and Banks,” he tweeted. “Hopefully getting in the studio soon w Ratatat, Diplo, and I gotta reach out to MGMT as well.”

He likened the double-disc album to his 2008 breakthrough mixtape. “A KID named CUDI on DMT. Evolving,” said the rapper, who will tour this fall.

You can also hear Cudi on the G.O.O.D. Music compilation Cruel Summer, due August 7.

Kanye West Working On 6th Studio Album!!

YESSS!!! 2010’S “Dark Twisted Fantasy” was epic, one of, if not our favorite studio effort from the Louis Vuitton Don but Mr West aims to top it late 2012 but probably early 2013!

MTV reports the following after catching up with Def Jam’s new Vice President, No I.D:

“[Kanye's new album is] what you expect and everything you don’t expect” he said of the project. He also says ,“This is Kanye. You know what to expect from the family. He hasn’t missed yet, so don’t expect him to miss.” – No I.D

No word on a release date, first single, or anything as of yet, but that should definitely change within the coming months.

He’s mad busy right now, working on new projects for 2 Chainz, Big Sean, Beyonce and Rihanna but somewhere in there he’ll get the time to finish this 6th album and we hope it’ll be just as epic as #5!

We hear that the list of collaborators will be just as distinguished as “Fantasy”. JayZ, Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, Big Sean, Frank Ocean, Kudi, Drake, 2 Chainz and others are expected to make cameos!! #TeamYeezyBaby

Glad he’s experimenting with his sound, adding some elements that everyone can enjoy, that’s the best thing to do given his recent decision to let everyone in on his sexuality.. N**** barely bought music before, now he’s gotta appeal to more then them to stay relevant! 

My man’s got some haters but Kanye West, Big Sean, Beyonce, JayZ, Russell Simmons and others are totally behind him in support! We love him for this decision, this immense sacrifice! #pioneer

“Channel Orange” debuts July 17th!!

Tween group Mindless Behavior will need the support from their die hard fans to propel them past, Jay-Z/Kanye Wast as The Throne, Maybach Music Group, Diddy Dirty Money, and Eminem’s Bad Meets Evil in the Best Group rank, while Nicki Minaj will most likely take the plaque for Best Female Hip Hop.

I hate when a song has pretty much run it’s course then the video comes….why??? Nevertheless, I like it, nice to finally get a visual for one of the most popular songs in the country…

Oh and btw, Kanye West needs to jump on Jenny Craig with Mariah, that n**** has gotten FAT!

The video isn’t as bad as I imagined, the way the events were communicated to me, I thought he went on a coked out rampage and totally trashed the stage. Nevertheless, Kanye needs to do something about this young man. The bad boy image is cool, marketable even but he’s representing the entire label.. Such behavior has to cease!

Apparently whoever was working the sound decided it had gone on long enough and decided to go the audio and Cudi’s mic…. I’m sure they had words, that’s what should have been caught on camera lol!

Common Calls Off Beef With Drake??

Posted in BITCHASSNESS, common, drake, G.O.O.D Music, HILARIOUS (COMEDY), KANYE WEST, NEW ALBUMS, NEWS, POPULAR MUSIC, trueclefmusic, TRUECLEFMUSIC.COM, YOUNG MONEY with tags , , on January 20, 2012 by RJDAMONARCH

Common Puts Drake Beef On Ice, Ponders Tag Team Brawl With Kanye West 

It’s only been a month since he launched a lyrical war againstDrake, but Common is already experiencing mixed emotions about the whole thing. In two separate interviews, the Chi-Town rapper went from praising Drake, to challenging him to an all out Hip-Hop duel between YMCMB and G.O.O.D. Music.

While catching up with Chicago’s 107.5 WGCI radio station this morning, Common spoke on all things “Canada Dry,” and noted that he’s not against bringing in Kanye West to help fight his battle. “If it had to get to teaming up, I’d get my squad too, you can’t forget G.O.O.D music, Kanye and the brothers.”

Common has been throwing jabs at Young Money’s resident emo-MC starting with the track “So Sweet” off hisThe Dreamer, The Believer album, and apparently commencing with last week’s “Stay Schemin’ (Remix).” In the aforementioned record Common flipped the Drake-assisted song, originally off Rick Ross’ Rich Forevermixtape, by not only calling him a “b*tch,” but making his feelings clearer by throwing in the line: “Make no mistake, I’m talkin’ to Drake.” Yet judging by Common’s interview with Rolling Stone, he appears to have had a change of heart.

Despite accusations that the entire rift was over his ex-girlfriend, Serena Williams, upon speaking to Rolling Stone Common revealed that he’s actually a fan of Toronto’s very own. “I think he makes good music,” he said. “He’s definitely said some real clever things and made some cool songs. I like his music.”

Falling short of proclaiming his victory in the lyrical squabble, Common broke down his motivation for targeting Drake. “I don’t think I had anything to prove,” he said. “I just felt like somebody stepped and challenged me, so I had to step into the ring. He said some things that I thought were directed at me, so I had to address it back.”

Although he has called an unofficial truce, the 39-year-old maintained that if Drizzy attempts a rebuttal he’s not against reigniting the feud. “If something else happens, then I’ll just have to act accordingly.”

Hmmmm, I haven’t really been following this, despite the inbox full of inquires. I don’t like beef, takes away from the music but this one has been getting so much press.

It appears Common is over it, which is cool I guess, especially since he kind of started the whole thing. I have a lot of respect for him, most of which because of his time clocked in the game but Drake is a lyrical genius, one of the greatest. 20 years from now we’ll be talking about him and his music while Common has NEVER experienced a prime, never had a year or period of time that was all about him…. Commercially he can’t match Drake and lyrically…I’m not even gonna go there..

Oh and trying to drag poor Kanye West and the G.O.O.D Music camp into this, not cool!

Frank Ocean Opens Up About Debut Album, Won’t Feature Mr West!

Posted in ALBUMS, BEYONCE, DEF JAM, FRANK OCEAN, KANYE WEST, NEW ALBUMS, NEW ARTIST, NEW MUSIC, NEWS, POPULAR MUSIC, R&B, RNB, trueclefmusic, TRUECLEFMUSIC.COM with tags , , , , , on November 16, 2011 by RJDAMONARCH

Famed R&B singer/songwriter Frank Ocean has been busy in the studio recording his Def Jam debut, serving as a follow-up to his critically acclaimed mixtape, ‘nostalgia, ULTRA.’ In a recent interview with BBC 1xtra’s Zane Lowe, the Odd Future crooner revealed exclusive details about the current process of the project.

“The record’s written, we’re just trying to tie up all the production. Get everything sonically pleasing to me, the director of this film,” he said. “It’s been cool working on it. I take my time, for better or for worse. I’m excited to share and perform them. When I started writing this record, that’s one of the things I said. I was like, this record, I want to be able to perform well, to transition to stage well.”

Having worked with the likes of John Legend, Beyonce, Jay-Z, and Kanye West, it should be no doubt for fans to expect an all star-studded line-up for the album. However, Ocean has made it clear that super producer Kanye West will not be involved with the LP.

“I’ll be candid about that. I told [Kanye], as much as I want to work with you – I’m not going to say he wants to work with me so bad – but I’m a big fan. He’s a big influence on my music. I told him, ‘As much as I want to work with you, I kind of want to do this without you. I kind of want to do it on my own.’

“I worked with one producer, who I don’t know, I just found some random synergy with, a producer named Malay,” he continued. “We worked for the first couple of days and did some crazy feeling songs.”

Currently, there is no set release date for the as-of-yet untitled album. He is set to perform tonight at the El Rey Theater in Los Angeles.

To be perfectly honest, I slept on FrankO until I found out he was working on “4” with Beyonce and her team.. The result was not just one of the best tracks on the album but one of the best records of Beyonce’s career. I’ve never heard her convey that much emotion, that much honesty…

After that I was curious about this Frank Ocean, this song-writer I kept hearing the industry talk about but never bothered to listen..

When this album comes up, I’ll be listening. Everything I’ve heard thus far has been all about thought provoking, story telling lyrics, paired with one of the best new voices in r&b.

I don’t know how I feel about him leaving Mr West off the debut, not wise but he might be just fine on his own. Sometimes things like this are better done that way.. Goodluck bro!

Lil Wayne’s “The Carter 4″ To Shift 800-900k First Week!!!

Posted in ALBUM COVERS, ALBUM DEBUTS, ALBUMS, DEF JAM, HIPHOP, JAY-Z, KANYE WEST, NEW ALBUMS, NEW MUSIC, NEWS, POPULAR MUSIC, trueclefmusic, TRUECLEFMUSIC.COM with tags , , , , , on September 3, 2011 by RJDAMONARCH

The Game will likely step aside next week when Lil Wayne‘s “Tha Carter IV” will hit No. 1. It’s expected that the album will sell anywhere from 850,000 to 900,000 copies in its first frame.

Last week’s No. 1, Jay-Z & Kanye West‘s “Watch the Throne,” slides to No. 2 this week with 94,000 (down 47%). The set has shifted 707,000 in its three weeks of release.

Adele‘s “21” also falls one spot — but with a 3% gain — to No. 3, with 82,000. Figure that while the MTV Video Music Awards aired late on Sunday (Aug. 28) night — the final day of the SoundScan tracking week — some of “21’s” 3% gain is owed to her performance on the show and fast reaction from consumers. On the VMAs, she sang the set’s newest U.S. single, “Someone Like You.”

YESSSSS!!!! Wayne may end up shifting another one million copies, follow the previous Carters career defining debut! 

Just like that, Wayne crushes Adele, Beyonce, his friend Kanye and rival JayZ with the biggest legitimate debut of 2011! Gaga shifted a million plus copies but did so with the help of Amazon’s .99 promotion #bitchassness

This makes gives Wayne a series claim to baddest muhf**** in the game!!!

No I.D Leaves G.O.O.D Music For Vice President Job At Def Jam!!!

Kanye West’s musical mentor and former president of GOOD Music, No I.D. has been appointed Executive Vice President of A&R for Def Jam Recordings. Along with his new position, he brokered a deal for his record label Artium Recordings for an exclusive label partnership with Def Jam.

“No I.D. is one of the hottest and most well-respected hip-hop producers of our era,” Barry Weiss, chairman and chief executive of Universal Republic and Island Def Jam Motown, said in a statement. “His years of mentoring and developing artists in the studio should serve him perfectly in his new A&R role and will surely help take Def Jam to the next level.” 

“I’m proud of the success I’ve had with so many of the great artists and songwriters at Def Jam,” the producer said in a statement.  “The Def Jam brand is cultural and iconic, and I’m excited to be working closely with the artists, Barry, Karen [Kwak, executive vice president and head of A&R for Island Def Jam Music Group] and the team in what promises to be an incredible new phase in my career.”

No I.D has shared his music production talents across Hip Hop & R&B genres, producing “Run This Town” (Jay-Z), “So Appalled” (Kanye West), “More Than A Woman” (Toni Braxton), “I Miss That” (Lloyd) amongst other records. In his new post he will sign new artist to his label and oversee current projects on Def Jam’s roster.

I definitely understand why he made the switch and I’m sure that he and Kanye will continue to collaborate, they’ve been friends since Kanye’s career began..

I wonder who will fill his shoes at G.O.O.D??

The numbers are finally in, and after the most exciting build-up in recent rap memory, Jay-Z and Kanye West‘s Watch the Throne debuted at the #1 spot on the Billboard albums chart this week, selling 436,000 copies.

Technically Lady Gaga has the biggest debut of 2011 but she sold the album for .99 on Amazon for 2 days and that TECHNICALLY makes her and Interscope full of sh**..

Congrats Kanye&Jay
