Both of Nicki Minaj‘s latest singles haven’t been received well from the media or the fans for that matter, many calling for the pop sound from her ‘SuperBass’ single. Well here is a new track (Tagged) unsure if its from ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded‘ but i would think so with that heavy pop influence sound. Take a listen to ‘Marilyn Monroe’ after the jump!
Today Madonna released her brand new single and video ‘Give Me All Your Luvin’ featuring Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. The song and video were way to the left for me to post on say-somethin’ and it looks as though M.I.A thought the same because as soon as Madonna released her new video M.I.A counter-acted by releasing one of her own ‘Bad Girls’ to hide from the shame that is ‘Give Me All Your Luvin’ One twitter follower had this too say:
Think that says it all, Watch the video below from our girl M.I.A doing it big for South London.
Released in December of 2011, ‘Turn Me On’ finally gets the visual treatment in this brand new video by Nicki Minaj and David Guetta. The song can currently be found on Guetta’s latest album ‘Nothing But The Beat’ But will also be featured on Nicki Minaj‘s sophomore album ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded’ come April 3rd. Watch the video below after the jump!
Brooklyn Babs Aka Babs Bunny chopped it up with Say Somethin’ while on her promotion tour for ‘Queen Of The Ring’. During the interview Babs talks candidly about her new projects including her Mixtapes ‘Wave Music’ ‘Astronomical’ and ‘Back 2 Life’ and her movement in pushing female hip hop to the limit in the Worlds first ever all female battle league ‘Queen Of The Ring’
“No Cup Cake Rhyming I put Them Out With Some Of The Dudes Out Here Today”
Make no mistake Babs is a force not to be reckoned with as she proves below in her Twitter freestyle:
Babs discussed her friendship with Mysonne (Who we will also be interviewing on Saturday) while speaking on the cypher which caused quite a buzz on World star Hip hop a few years back
“I Like To Get In A Cypher With The Dudes Cause I Like To Show My Skills, I Love Female Rappers But I really Don’t Wanna Be In A Cypher With 6 Of Them Sh*t’s, Like I Wanna Be In A Cypher With 6 Other Dudes And I Just Destroy All Of Em”
After the video for ‘Stupid Hoe’ Dropped a few days ago It has been slammed by critics as well as fans causing Nicki to push her latest album ‘Pink Friday:Roman Reloaded’ back from February 14th to April 3rd in fear of poor sales. Well it looks as though Nicki is having the last laugh cause even though the video has been poorly received it has become Vevo’s highest viewed premiere video within 24 hours on the site. Currently sitting at 7.7 Million views since its premiere.
I guess congratulations or maybe not because it’s more likely most these views came about through word of mouth about how bad the video is. Well if you missed it check it out again below and Say Somethin’
I was first introduced to part 2’s music by his publicist @_iPublicist_ceo who put me on to his website and Facebook page. Instantly I could hear his music was very different to the sound of American Hip Hop and extremely familiar to the sound of the UK rap scene who mix pop with rap music to generate that Electro/Hip Hop sound. When talking with him I mentioned that he reminded me of our UK International Artist Tinie Tempah who also uses that Electro Hip Hop sound here in Europe which has helped him become an International star across the globe. Part 2 who is currently in the studio recording his first complete album spoke with me around topics such as The European sound to his music, his influences, his EP ‘Don’t Shoot The Martian’
We even spoke on the current state of hip hop by talking Common, Drake, Nicki Minaji and Lil’ Kim. Part 2 Is a strong believer in creativity as such his facebook page reads:
Part 2 is a ambitious human being who challenges young men and women to fight for liberation and believes that creativity and ingenuity can change the world. As a recording artist, it is his obligation to inspire and uplift his community through art and performance. In doing so he is notably emerging as one of the most innovative young pioneer’s in pop culture.
Don’t Shoot The Martian is Part 2’s first album EP release. With production from Aaron Rash, he creatively fuse’s elements of hip hop, electro-pop and alternative music genre’s to form one distinct sound of his own. The ambient burst of electric guitars, synths and 808’s are combined with his uptempo vocal delivery that takes command of the energetic cadences.
This is why he remains different to the rest which is also the basis behind his EP name which he explains below. Check out what Part 2 had to say below with part 2 (No Pun Intended) of our conversation after the jump!
Nicki Minaj just announced on her twitter page that she will be pushing ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded’ back to April 3rd
I think Nicki and her team came to their senses to realise that the material she has been putting out is not sitting well with her Fan base the people who actually will support her music because even they are not accepting this type of ‘Music’
