Tamar B 2

We thought opportunities for her would be far and in between given the baby and all the time she had to take off in relation to pregnancy but JL threw her a bone! She’ll be opening for his “Made To Love” U.S tour and our friends at RapUp have all the details:

Tamar Braxton is grabbing her bags and baby and heading on the road with John Legend this fall. The R&B singer has joined Legend’s “Made to Love” tour.

The new mom is gearing up for the release of her album Love and War, due September 3 on Epic Records. Legend’s album Love in the Future drops the same day.

The 3 Most Overrated Artist In Urban Music!!

Posted in trueclefmusic with tags , , , , on July 22, 2013 by JupiterDaTruth

lil wayne how to love

Lil Wayne is still chasing the runaway success of his 2008, slightly cross over album, “The Carter III” and for the most part he’s been keeping the pace, collaborating with just about everyone, signing some of the most popular artist in modern music and shifting another 1 million copies of “The Carter IV”…

We love Weezy but he’s unquestionably not what he was in 2008, his popularity has dwindled, his revenue doesn’t have the same potential and he’s not what he was lyrically or commercially even though he is the most recognizable face in hiphop…

His fans gas em up, proclaim he’s the greatest rapper of all time, the greatest rapper alive and his material simply no longer supports that….. We just don’t see his crown anymore…

beyonce 122

Beyonce, Mrs Carter had the industry on it’s knees with her first 3 albums but a series of management changes, image revisions and label politics have severely handicapped her though she STILL proclaims herself Queen, bow down b****, even in light of serious and often overwhelming competition from Rihanna and others..

Few artist had a 2008 like Beyonce! Wayne, Taylor Swift and a few other artist were huge that year but the video for “Single Ladies” broke ground and Beyonce broke the bank, taking in more revenue then any other female in entertainment, topping forbes and redefining her boundaries, redefining where predominantly urban artist can go with there music given the proper tools…

Matthew Knowles and her husband Jay-Z were instrumental in fashioning her crown but bad business, sh**** A&R work and corner cutting have rendered her unworthy… Why is an artist with hundreds of millions of dollars at her disposal stealing concepts and making music videos in dance studios???

Beyonce’s last album shifted less then half the units of the album is succeeded. She had no major hit singles, even though she experienced monster success on the r&b charts. She crossed over in 2008 only to alienated the fans that effort awarded her in 2011.. “4” is arguably her best album but the lack of radio friendly tracks on the project and horrible a&r work threw the public and a few fans for a loop. As a result, it’s her slowest and lowest seller to date..

Despite these pit falls, Beyonce and her fan base continue to support this notion of royalty, of matchlessness even though the numbers haven’t supported that in nearly 6 years.. #overrated

kanye west runaway vid

Mr West is a genius but the loss of his mother, public scrutiny and extreme narcism have changed him, his sound and his music as a whole..

Things begin to really shift once his mother died. “808s & Heartbreak” was a cinematic science project, crazy production, morbid, depressing lyrics and just totally different from the Lauryn Hill esque, hip hop soul we’d grown to love him for…

His most recent album is art but it’s not marketable, it’s not radio friendly, it’s going to be his slowest and lowest seller but he’s proclaimed himself the greatest, compared himself to Michael Jackson and even Steve Jobs in interviews and in the press… He’s doing way too much for his music to have declined so greatly in the last 6 years…

Notice that the greatest successes of these 3 artist was in 2008… All three are amazing but all three are capable of miles more then what they’ve been pushing on there fans lately… They need to step it up or stop talking sh**…

Chris Brown Probation REVOKED!!

Posted in trueclefmusic with tags , , on July 17, 2013 by JupiterDaTruth

CHRIS BROWN NUMBER 1

Wish we knew what was wrong with this kid but it’s anybody’s guess. The woman he hit with his Range Rover is claiming her turned into a violent, viligerant d*** towards the end of the incident and only K.T was able to control him….. SingersRoom reports the following:

Chris Brown is in more trouble this week. Not only did he face Superior Court Judge James Brandlin, who revoked his probation Monday, Brown was also accused of going “ballistic” after a May 12 alleged hit-and-run accident in California.

“I was so shocked that I was speechless,” the woman involved in an accident with Brown said in a statement given to the court Monday. “Just a moment ago he was a nice guy. After screaming some insulting nonsense for a while longer, he slammed a door and drove away fast and noisy.”

According to the woman (only identified in court docs as Olga G, a recent emigre to the country), Brown snapped after she demanded proper identification, such as his drivers license and insurance card. When he refused to provide that information, the woman said she pulled out her camera and took a picture. That, she says, made him go “ballistic,” yelling expletives and grabbing for her camera.

She claims the only thing that stopped him was his alleged girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, who told Chris Brown “Don’t touch her. Don’t touch her.” Karrueche also offered the woman her drivers license and claimed the car they were driving was hers, not Chris Brown’s.

With the evidence and statement presented, Judge Brandlin decided to revoke Chris Brown’s probation, which stems from his assault of Rihanna in 2009. He has not been jailed at this point as the judge opted to let him go free on his own recognizance. District Attorney Mary Murray, who was also on hand Monday, did not demand jail time for Chris Brown.

Another hearing is set for August 16.

Ciara “CIARA” Album Review!!

Posted in trueclefmusic with tags , , , , on July 17, 2013 by JupiterDaTruth

ciara album

WOW!!! The emancipation of Ciara! The album is beast, arguably her best, well produced, well written, well delivered and perfect for her voice!! We didn’t expect her to come hard! So glad she went H.A.M with the promo because it would have been a shame for no one to hear this!! Thank you L.A Reid for saving her!

Album Highlights:

1. Sophomore

2. Body Party

3 I’m Out Ft Nicki Minaj

4. Keep Look’n

We love the four songs listed above, beating heart of the album but tracks like “Where You Go” Ft Future and “Livin It Up” need to see radio see to increase her crossover appeal. They’re perfect for commercial radio but will still get love on the urban market.

This album is arranged AF, flow, totally listenable, played the whole thing all the way through without hearing anything we couldn’t stand. So proud of Ciara! This album is solid, come back album, Ciara emancipated!

She’ll have to choose the rest of her singles carefully and deliver fire videos for each in order for this album to continue to shift steadily. If she can move 400 to 500,000 units, it’ll be official! CONGRATS C SQUAD!
