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

Rap-Up Magazine reports the following:

Melanie Fiona links up with her fellow Roc star J. Cole in the Colin Tilley-directed video for “This Time,” the No I.D.-produced single off her sophomore album The MF Life.

“I wanted some male energy on this record,” said the Canadian songstress. “I reached out to Cole and we had already done a song with Wale ['Beautiful Bliss'] and we all just really had great chemistry on the record. I was a fan of J. Cole. We met at the very, very beginning of his career, so we’ve kind of come up together.”

YESSSSSS!!!!!!! As promo for “Watch The Throne” draws to a close and in light of the insane amount of publicity Kanye & Kim Kardasian have been generating, he’s opted to pick up promo of his masterpiece 5th album, “Dark Twisted Fantasy”, arguably out favorite submission from him!

So here’s Jay-Z new bed warmer  in action… Anyone see where Rihanna got her new image from??? All the way down to the hair, the grungy, glam look…

I like that she can sing but it’s strange looking at her, kinda like child or Rihanna and the late Britney Murphy or Rihanna and Gwen Stefani, she’s cute, can be so much more though! 

The song is cool but she’ll need to do way better then this if she wants to be the new Rihanna…….

As far as I know, J is still touring with Rihanna, his low key girl friend.. The success of the album is great, he’s so underrated but once and and The It Girl go public with there relationship, the world will know his name!!!

FINALLY! I’ve been waiting for word on this album since “H.A.M” hit radio and tanked last fall…

This album theoretically should be BRILLIANT but “H.A.M.” left much to be desired! Hopefully, Ye, Swizz, and Jay can come up with some productions and some bars that match or better those found on 2010′s “Dark Twisted Fantasy” and 2009′s “The BluePrint III”!

Jay-Z & Kanye West Ready New Album “Watch The Throne” & First Single!!!

Jay-Z and Kanye West are preparing to take over 2011 with the release of their joint album Watch The Throne and will release the first single for the project next week.

As previously reported, Kanye got people talking on New Year’s Eve when partied with Jay and announced,

“Watch The Throne dropping in one week!”

Since then, reps for West claim that the album actually won’t hit stores till March but the first official single from the project should be released very soon—January 11 to be exact.

The new single is titled “H.A.M.” and while details are scarce, there’s buzz that it may be leaked to the internet as early as this week.

Yesssssss!!!!!! If we can get a whole album crammed with tracks like “Run This Town”, Diamonds Are Forever (The Remix) and “Monster” then this is going to be a project of EPIC proportions! I can’t wait to hear it!!!

Expect Rihanna, Kid Cudi, J Cole, Young Jeezy, Swizz Beatz and maybe even Beyonce to make cameos!!!

Trey Songz Responds To Recent Gay Rumors Via Twitter!!!

Posted in NEWS, ROCNATION, RUMORS, TREY SONGZ, trueclefmusic, TRUECLEFMUSIC.COM with tags , , , , , , on November 13, 2010 by RJDAMONARCH

WOW!!! I guess he’s not going to publicly address these new rumors either but Twitter seemed to suffice a while ago when he was linked to Brandon Hines, an up and coming but still unsigned male artist. The new rumors link him and a RocNation A&R exec. If the rumors are false then Twitter is fine but the stacks are high and if he is seeing this male executive it’s a matter of time before they’re caught, photographed together or proven involved by the press which will no doubt be watching him with a VERY close eye. Good luck wit that Trigga..

Peep the Twitter response below:

Kid Cudi Covers Complex Magazine & GOES IN ON WALE!!!

Kid Cudi is taking shots at his old accomplice Wale

The two rappers who were once thought to be good friends are apparently at a war of words with Cudi lashing out at Wale for being “wack” and insisting that he and Kanye are not fans of his music.

In an interview with Complex, Cudi states that’s he’s “incomparable” to any other rapper and he didn’t take too kindly to a post the D.C. rapper penned comparing himself and his peers to different genres of sports.

“Did you see that Wale interview that he just did, comparing us to sports? Let me clear this up: I’m incomparable to anybody. I don’t care how people take that. No one can compete with me.

I’m unf*ckwittable; no one can knock me off my sh*t. I’m an unstoppable force, I’m a bullet. My trajectory is to the sky. N*ggas got to do something really spectacular to f*ck with me and my realm, and n*ggas be so bitter that you hear it in their voice.”

When Complex asks Cudi his thoughts on a line Wale dropped in a freestyle referencing to that infamous incident where Cudi punched a fan on stage, a noticeably agitated Cudi calls Wale “wack” saying,

“It wasn’t a shot, it’s just a simple-a** rhyme by a simple-a** rapper. You can’t let that shit faze you. That’s one of those raps that just shows the world that you wack. Why would you even use that as a metaphor? Everybody think they Hov. N*ggas ain’t got the magic like they think they do; there’s only a couple of wizards in this game. I’m a wizard and I know it.”

Cudi also made sure to add in one more jab at the D.C. rapper, this time about his references to Kanye West on tracks. According to Cudi, he and his G.O.O.D. music head don’t “f*ck with him musically” and Wale should be less thirsty.

Ouch!

“The last album, I let people dis me, throw out those jabs in their verses and have their little slick remarks. This time around, I’m not f*cking around. I have no time to think about other n*ggas. These other mother*ckers like feeding off another n*gga’s energy, so they mention their name.

You hear me talk about n*ggas? I don’t even talk about Kanye, and that’s my homeboy! They talk about Kanye like they’re bosom buddies with this n*gga. Talking about “I be in Hawaii”—man, shut the fuck up, why you got to tell everybody everything?

Then people like Wale get mad that ‘Ye ain’t give him no beats—’Ye ain’t give you no beats because we ain’t f*cking with your raps. It’s not a conspiracy theory. We don’t f*ck with you musically, so we’re not going to provide music for you.

The sh*t is a service, it’s a quality of a certain standard. N*ggas are just so thirsty it’s ridiculous. I’ve been eating humble pie forever, and people still call me an a**hole. These people don’t know my f*cking life—now I’m going to give them something to talk about.”

Wale subliminally addressed his issues with Cudi on his track “Numbers One” from his More About Nothing mixtape saying,ale subliminally addressed his issues with Cudi on his track “Numbers One” from his More About Nothing mixtape saying,

“Maybe it’s on me or brother it’s on you/ Or maybe it’s they fault that we ain’t holla since June/F*ck it we on the move/None of us tryna lose/I am outta this world and you are a ‘Man on The Moon’.

DAYUMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!!!

This make NO SENSE, these n**** are damn near label mates. Jay-Z has a strong arm in Wale’s career, he’s in some way affiliated if not totally signed to RocNation and Kudi is on Kanye’s G.O.O.D music imprint… These two come from the same sand box, hand picked but pretty much the same people! This is sibling rivalry at it’s WORST!!! They need to stop it, J is probably gonna make them squash the whole thing before it gets outta hand!

Jay-Z Memoirs of An Imperfect Mogul, “Decoded”!!!

Posted in ADS AND ENDORSEMENTS, ALBUMS, BUSINESS!, HIPHOP, JAY-Z, MUSIC, NEWS, POPULAR MUSIC, ROCNATION, trueclefmusic, TRUECLEFMUSIC.COM with tags , , on August 8, 2010 by RJDAMONARCH

Jay-Z will be releasing his first book entitled Decoded on November 16th. According to Rolling Stone Decoded mixes first-person memoirs with detailed discussions of his most famous and provocative lyrics.

Jigga collaborated with former The Source Magazine editor Dream Hampton on the script which includes interviews with Jay, his family and friends.

The 336 page book will discuss Jay-Z’s  early life in Brooklyn’s Marcy Projects, his stint as a drug dealer as well as his Hip-Hop success.

Decoded will also include illustrations and detailed explanations of many of his lyrics.

“It’s too much. For the book, I was interviewed, people close to me were interviewed. So I was learning a lot of things I didn’t know as a child,” Jay told Rolling Stone in the June issue. “It’s not anything i haven’t said in the past, in songs. It’s just more detailed. A song is three minutes long. A book doesn’t have to rhyme, and it has no time limit, so you can say exactly how everything went.”

Jay was also scheduled to release another book in 2003 around the time he dropped The Black Album. The Black Book Jay pulled the plug on because it allegedly contained a lot of personal things he wasn’t ready to release to the world.

Jay-Z Shatters Billboard Record, Rapper With Most Top 10′s!!!

Posted in ALBUMS, BILLBOARD, HIPHOP, JAY-Z, MUSIC, NEW ALBUMS, NEW MUSIC, NEWS, POPULAR MUSIC, ROCNATION, trueclefmusic, TRUECLEFMUSIC.COM with tags , , , on May 9, 2010 by RJDAMONARCH

Even at 40, Jay-Z is appearing to be at top form when compared to other rappers that he must compete with.

With his latest single “Young Forever” making its way onto the top 10 of the Billboard charts, Jay can now stand victorious as the rapper with the most top 10 singles ever.

Wow, people actually like that song, huh??

Initially with the record being broken by Ludacris, who had 16 hits to land on the top 10, Jigga was able to edge him out, now having 17 singles under his belt, according to Entertainment Weekly.

With his single “My Chick Bad”, from Battle of The Sexes, quickly climbing the charts, Luda is far from throwing in the towel in this competition.  Currently it is holding down the number 11 spot, so let’s see what happens next week.

Although Jay may have won the battle with the most records to hit top 10, Luda still holds the crown for being the rapper with the most #1 records, standing at 5.

I don’t agree with everything Jigga does but I can’t deny that he is one of, if not my favorite rapper. “Young Forever” isn’t my favorite track though. It’s honest and commercial so I see why he’d release it. “On To The Next” BUMPS but didn’t come anywhere near the top 10. With this 5th single he is vying for crossover appeal and it appears to be working. I expect the 6th track to be “So Ambitious” or “Real As It Gets”. If you don’t have “The Blueprint III” COP IT IMMEDIATELY!!!

J Cole Drops First Single & Announces Album Title!!!

Posted in ALBUMS, HIPHOP, JAY-Z, MUSIC, MUSIC LEAK, NEW ALBUMS, NEW ARTIST, NEW MUSIC, NEWS, POPULAR MUSIC, ROCNATION, trueclefmusic, TRUECLEFMUSIC.COM with tags , , , , , , on April 28, 2010 by RJDAMONARCH

Being looked at as the most anticipated member of the XXL Freshman Class of 2010, all eyes have essentially been on J. Cole, waiting on his next move.

Under the tutelage of Jay-Z, the Roc Nation’s first artist is showing signs of his debut album, releasing what is reported to be his first single.

Peep the single:

With the rumored single out, that must mean that there is an a title for the upcoming project.  Resources are stating the Cole’s first offering will be called Cole World and it should definitely be expected to drop over the summer.

Having so many major names dropping between June and August, who would Cole choose to “compete” with?

From The Come Up to The Warm Up, Cole has exceeded expectations in regards to the mixtape world and presented something not done by many rappers of today.

His moves, however, have been related to the mixtape circuit, and as is the case with Drake, it’s a completely different world when it comes to an actual studio effort.

Yea he a worthy signee, haven’t been as impressed with his rhymes until this point, he did the damn thing on this single, SLAY!!!!
