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.

Nicki Minaj Talks Mariah Carey On Ellen!!

Posted in HIPHOP, MARIAH CAREY, NEWS, nicki minaj, YOUNG MONEY with tags , , on January 16, 2013 by JupiterDaTruth

mimi and Nicki

We love Nicki but we haven’t felt the same way about her since the video of her coming for Mariah during an I.A audition went viral… Based on what she’s had to say and what Mariah’s had to say, we can conclude that FOX signed Mariah on to the show based on her being the only female judge….. They later added Nicki and that pissed Mariah off.. Mimi wasn’t mad at Nicki at all but really irritated with the networks decision to undermine her… The tension just built up and exploded, no one’s fault but the networks. We’ve forgiven Nicki, hopefully the rest of Mimi’s fan can do the same…..

Here’s an excerpt from the interview with Ellen:

“It was just two big ol’ divas, I guess,” said Nicki, who explained how it all started. “I heard them saying Mariah doesn’t want you on the panel, but I was saying, ‘No, I’m friends with Mariah.’ And I was like arguing with people, like, ‘Don’t believe everything you read. You’re crazy!’”

While she didn’t want to believe it, she eventually noticed the awkwardness. “I went there and I started feeling a little bit of the shade. I overcompensated by being crazier.”

According to Nicki, the dueling divas have buried the hatchet. “We’re fine. I cannot hold a grudge against Mariah Carey. What people don’t understand is that I’ve looked up to her for so many years. … I don’t know if she’s gotten over it, but I have.”

However, she is not looking forward to the live shows because of the potential conflict. “I don’t want anyone on the panel to say something crazy ’cause I don’t want to look like a crazy psycho again,” said Nicki, who insisted she is not crazy.

Weezy is on the promo trail, dropping the video for his latest radio hit “No Worries”.. RapUp reports the following:

Tunechi trips out in Sin City in the Colin Tilley-directed video for “No Worries,” which was inspired by the 1998 movie Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. The Young Money chief rocks a bucket hat, shorts, and shades like the film’s star Raoul Duke, while his co-star Detail plays Duke’s attorney, Dr. Gonzo.

High on acid, the two make their way through a Las Vegas casino, navigating the swirling carpet under their feet and hitting up a strip club for some more fun.

“We didn’t really follow any script. I just really enjoyed the movie. I told [the director] I was interested in the movie and he wrote a spoof to it,” said Weezy, who previously shot the video for “Lollipop” in Vegas.

“No Worries” is the latest single off Lil Wayne’s upcoming album I Am Not a Human Being II, due February 19, 2013.

Nicki Minaj Opens Up About Mariah Carey…

Posted in BITCHASSNESS, HIPHOP, MARIAH CAREY, NEWS, nicki minaj, POPULAR MUSIC, trueclefmusic, TRUECLEFMUSIC.COM, TV with tags , , , on November 15, 2012 by JupiterDaTruth

It seems this isn’t going away anytime soon but the readers know where we stand… We don’t care what Mariah did or said… She’s an iconic diva, musician, singer and song writer that should be reverenced, not questioned and NEVER attacked like this!

MTV News Reports the following:

The second installation of Nicki Minaj’s three-part E! special “My Truth” picks up on the set of her video shoot for “The Boys,” but as the show progresses, the YMCMB rapper addresses the fallout from her “American Idol” feud with Mariah Carey, and specifically Barbara Walter’s involvement in the beef.
When Nick first finds out that footage of the blowout has leaked, she explains to Mack Maine that the cameras did not capture the moments leading up to that, “20 minutes before that happened, she egged me on and I walked off – I stormed off the stage because didn’t wanna do that,” she told the Young Money president. “So I left and when I came back it was another jab.”

“She’s admitted that she did not want another female doing the show, thinking somebody’s coming to steal her shine,” Nick added. “And nitpicking, nitpicking, nitpicking – I don’t do well with that passive aggress sh–. I’m not gonna allow it no more. I can’t. I work and keep it moving, I don’t even f— with the people in this business.”

Later, the subject comes up again during a private flight, after an episode of “The View” which found co-host Barbara Walters reporting that Carey had increased her security after Minaj threatened her life, calling the rapper “unpredictable.” Nicki was unable to contain her disappointment with Walters for quickly taking sides.

“I really felt good when I left yesterday and then I hear that Mariah went to Barbara Walters with some more fabrication that even the producers told her was never said,” she explained. “Telling Barbara I said something about a gun, which everybody knows that I’m way smarter than that. Literally my jaw was just hanging open and I was in shock. I’ve never in my life said anything regarding a gun.”

Nicki reveals that she didn’t want to speak out about the video immediately, in hopes that the controversy would blow over quickly, but no such luck.

“Am I not good enough for you to get my side, because I’m a little black girl that raps?” she said, addressing Walters directly. “Because if I was J. Lo, you would’ve called J. Lo’s camp. But are we not good enough for you Barbara? ‘Cause you wasn’t even there when I was on the show Barbara. So I guess I’m not good enough but I’m only good enough for you to tell people I’m ‘unpredictable,’ when you don’t f—–g know me?”

While the video clip seemed to suggest that there might’ve been some deep rooted beef between these two, Nicki maintains that she still respects Mariah tremendously. “Why would I wanna have a rift with someone I’ve looked up to my whole life? I’ve loved her and even told her that in the meeting. Actually I’m happy that Mariah’s on the panel because I think that’s a great thing. You’ve got one of the best singers than ever sang ever in the world. Ain’t nothing wrong with that, but the fact that you had a problem with me being on there and that’s why there’s an issue.”

In spite of all the accusations, Nicki reiterates that no one will run her off the show.

The rumors about them dating have died down but one can’t deny Gaga’s love for hip hop music, collaborating with new artist and label mate, Kendrick Lamar on this laid back a** track that didn’t make his album but should see radio given this video! They’re really good friends that respect each others music! We think it’s beautiful!

Missy Elliott Debates Possible Album Titles!!

Posted in ALBUMS, HIPHOP, MISSY ELLIOT, MISSY ELLIOTT, NEW ALBUMS, NEW MUSIC, NEWS, POPULAR MUSIC, trueclefmusic with tags , , , on October 20, 2012 by JupiterDaTruth

The singles she released just a couple weeks ago aren’t picking up at radio and that’s not showing any sign on changing… If she’s going to come back, she’s going to need a “Loose Control” or “Hot Boyz” to fire up the club scene and radio! C’Mon Missy!!!

Our friends at RapUp report the following:

On the 15th anniversary of her debut Supa Dupa Fly, Missy Elliott sat down with Fuse to reminisce about her groundbreaking album and the iconic video for “The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly).”

“Everything about it. You hadn’t heard it before,” said Missy of the 1997 project, which took two weeks to record. “Even the rap flows was different. I think it was 10 years ahead, 15 years ahead [of its time].”

Looking back, she’s proud of her work. “I’m probably more in awe with it now than I was then.”

She dropped her two new singles “9th Inning” and “Triple Threat” last month, but she has yet to decide on a title for her seventh album. While she was choosing between Block Party and Class Dismissed, one fan suggested a third title, Class in Session.

“Somebody said Class Dismissed sounds like class is over. Class in Sessionsounds like you’re taking people to school. I gotta figure it out,” she said.

During a Ustream session, she revealed that she has a “fun, party record”featuring Lil’ Kim and Eve. When asked if the album will contain a 2012version of “Not Tonight (Ladies Night Remix),” she responded, “Great possibility.”

Nicki Minaj Reveals “Roman Reloaded -THE RE-UP” Cover!!

In light of her b****aness on American Idol and her total and complete disrespect for Mariah Carey, we don’t really f*** with this h** like that anymore but she’s still a popular artist making headlines and as long as that’s the case, we’ll continue to follow her work and report Nicki stories here.

As you know, she’s re-releasing her 2nd album and has added some more urban tracks that are suppose to resemble her earlier, let pop bullsh** work. That remains to be seen but RapUp reports the following:

Get ready for the return of Roman. Nicki Minaj has unveiled the cover ofPink Friday: Roman Reloaded – The Re-Up. Due November 19, the album will contain songs off her sophomore LP Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded along with 5-6 new tracks including “The Boys” with Cassie and a collaboration with Lil Wayne.

The Young Money rapper rocks curly black hair in homage to her mixtape days on the sassy artwork. “lol that face matches the lyrics on the reup to a T!!!! lmao, wait til u hear it…u’ll completely get it,” she told her Barbz.

The “American Idol” judge has likened the music to her earlier material. “It’s more my mixtape feel,” she said.

A fan actually hit us up early the other morning via Twitter talking about the incident, said she saw the whole thing but left her phone in the car, hence no video. We decided to wait until some footage hit the web to report, a little late but better then never huh lol!

Apparently Wayne was making an appearance, greeted Stevie on stage and gave him a quick but obvious kiss on the lips………… Did they forget there was a room full of fans??

T.I Speaks On BET Hip Hop Awards Brawl Between Jeezy & Rick Ross!!

Posted in BITCHASSNESS, HIPHOP, NEWS, POPULAR MUSIC, RICK ROSS, T.I, trueclefmusic, young jeezy with tags , , on October 3, 2012 by JupiterDaTruth

T.I. continues his domination of the media world by adding a second novel,Trouble & Triumph, to his ever-growing repertoire of talents. The rapper, actor, reality show star, and author visited L.A.’s “KTLA Morning News” to discuss his new book as well as his acting career and his reaction to Rick Ross and Young Jeezy’s backstage brawl at the BET Hip Hop Awards. 

Tip shared that the feedback from his first book, Power & Beauty, was so strong that fans urged him to write a sequel quickly. In fact, once the plot line and characters were established, the second novel was easier to pen than the first.

“It was actually easier, because I had a starting point,” he said. When asked if the novel’s street love story was inspired by real life, the King of the South laughed it off. “Nah, these are entirely fictional characters.”

The show’s anchors questioned the rapper about his thoughts around the recent BET Hip Hop Awards fight between Rick Ross and Young Jeezy, but T.I. appeared to be oblivious to what happened.

“I didn’t even know about the fight,” said Tip, although he did attribute male ego and pride as being the root of most fights.

“Men everywhere, we have huge egos and lots of pride,” he said. “I don’t know that particular incident personally, but most fights that I hear about, it’s about pride and ego. I can’t speak for every case. I don’t know much about this case.”

During the awards, T.I. performed a medley of songs off his upcoming albumTrouble Man, due December 18.

We think he’s right. All this money and fam, there’s NO reason for any artist to ever get physical with another. We don’t know the circumstances entirely but from what we have heard…it was some ignorance! Pride and ego just like T.I said…
