nas and mariah 2

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.

RapUp reports the following:

Man on the Moon 3 isn’t due until 2015, but Kid Cudi plans to hold his fans over with new music. The former G.O.O.D. Music signee announced that he will release a prelude EP within the next three months.

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!!

Posted in trueclefmusic with tags , , on October 18, 2013 by JupiterDaTruth

20131016-185445.jpg

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

Mariah Pens Open Letter & Announces New Single!!

The wait for Mariah’s new album seems endless. Mariah’s album was suppose to be on shelves months ago but a combination of her injury and industry politics forced her to push it back. The album is now slated for November and Mariah ever so often tweets pics from the studio… We have a track and collaboration list and are soooooo ready to hear this album..

Mariah’s released an open letter to her fans, an update on what’s going on with the music and in her life:

Hiiii lambs!!

I’m so happy to be able to catch up with everybody here on Facebook. The last three months of my life have not been easy. Getting through this injury has been the toughest experience of my life. It took me three months to get to this point but thank God I was able to recover and get my arm back. It’s a huge deal, it should have taken eight months and even my doctors can’t believe it. It’s been a long journey, the physical therapists have been incredible and I am very grateful to all of them for helping me.

When people expected me to go “Here I am, I’m back and everything’s great!”, it didn’t happen because my hand was still in tremendous pain and it took this long for it to heal. I’ve been working day and night, and it took a lot of rest (though I did sneak in to the studio a couple o’ times!) but I can finally say that I am on my way to a full recovery.

There’s a lot of excitement that I’m going to reveal to you very soon, and sooner than you know it, you’re going to understand why but more than that, you’re going to feel what I’ve been feeling for the past- not three months- but three years.

This is, to me, one of the most important albums I’ve ever made in my life. If you’re a lamb, a fan, or just a human being that needs to feel good, happy, sad, miserable, joyous… “I gotcha” (said like Roc- you haven’t heard how he says it yet but you will soon, it’s a complete+total classic!)

LYM!!!! –MC

UPDATE:

The other day Mariah announced her new single, titled “The Art of Letting Go”, same as her new album.. The single will arrive 11.11.13 and the album is expected to drop later this year or early, early 2013!

The diva left the following message on her facebook page!

Hi everyone!!I couldn’t be more thrilled to announce that my brand new single “THE ART OF LETTING GO”, will be released here exclusively on my Facebook page on 11.11.2013!!This song is so personal to me and I’m very excited to share this experience with you in such an intimate way.

“I can’t even know what to say”!!! We’re less than a month away and I can’t wait to answer all your questions and share this experience with you. Be sure to check back here every day for updates and all there is to know about “THE ART OF LETTING GO”.

Mariah Carey Hires Jermaine Dupre To Manage New Era, New Album!

Posted in trueclefmusic with tags , , , , on October 8, 2013 by JupiterDaTruth

mariah jd2

Ms Carey has been managed by Randy Jackson, Benny Medina, Jay Z & L.A Reid during her stay at Def Jam but now long time friend and collaborator, Jermaine Dupre will take the reigns, preside over this new album and new era in Mariah’s career..

We personally think it’s a good decision that’ll bare some fruit. Jermaine is the mastermind behind some of Mariah’s biggest hits and he was at the helm of production and A&R work on her 2005 album, “The Emancipation of Mimi” which restored all her powers…

We can’t wait to hear the album, can’t wait to hear a new single and can’t wait to see Mariah on tour again. TrueClefMusic f**** wit Mimi, all day, long time fans and supporters here!

Mariah’s album is slated for a November release. it’s her 14th jewel and is titled “The Art of Letting Go”.. We’ll see how brilliant it is…

So apparently someone decided to break in on KingRih last weekend… Singersroom reports the following:

Rihanna was the victim of an attempted burglary this past weekend. According to TMZ, trespassers tired to break in her Pacific Palisades mansion while she was performing in Australia for her “Diamonds World Tour.” The thieves reportedly fled the scene after throwing a chair through a sliding glass door, which triggered her home alarm system.
Law enforcement officials are conducting an investigation of the botch robbery. The criminal matter may be resolved urgently — apparently the whole burglary was caught on security cameras around the house.
No word from Rihanna regarding the the incident..

The single was released, sort of 4 or 5 months ago and regardless of the fact that King Rih’s never performed it or promoted it in any way, the song charted top 20 via The Hot 100… Now months later, the diva is releasing a steamy video for the single and seemingly plugging the promo for her brilliant “Unapologetic” album back in the wall right in time for Gaga. Britney and others to release new material!

We hope this isn’t the end, hope we get videos for “Numb”, “Love Song” and maybe even “No Love Allowed”. We’re in love with the album! #NAVY
