News: Beanie Sigel Joins G-Unit!

4 11 2009

Beanie Sigel As some suspected, Beanie Sigel has officially signed to G-Unit. Last week, Beanie Sigel put out a diss track to Jay-z airing out his lack of support and shady business. After 50 put his two cents in and co-signed Beanie, they linked up for an interview to discuss moving to G-Unit. This would be a great career move for Beanie since the gutter sounds of the Unit compliment Sigel’s street repertoire. When Beanie was with the Roc he was the grimiest member making him more suitable for more hardcore labels like G-Unit.

News: The N.E.R.D. Gets The Girl

7 10 2009

N.E.R.D. Adds a New Female Vocalist to Their BandN_E_R_D__Aug25
The Hip Hop/Alternative/Rock band switches things up for their fourth album titled Instant Gratification, by adding a female member to their group. N.E.R.D. enlists a singer by the name of Rhea as the female vocalist for their band making her first appearance on their 2010 album. Pharrell had this to say about the new addition to the band:

“Musically, we’re just somewhere else [with her],” Pharrell told MTV News. “The music is now very 3-D. It’s something you have to hear. But you’ll see. We’re definitely somewhere else. I want to leave that impact moment for when you purchase your download and you purchase your CD. The music is very three-dimensional. We’re just really excited. We feel like N.E.R.D. has always been the punks of hip-hop and the outcasts of alternative music — just a little different. But this time, we’re taking no prisoners.”
“Now you have this little Tinkerbell that’s just stepped in and has been amazing,” he said. “It’s made it a fun process. We can go in so many more directions, because we have the vocal support.”

This isn’t the first time a group added a female vocalist to their group while their career was in progress; Black Eyed Peas did a successful move by adding Fergie to their group.
N.E.R.D. fans, how do you feel?





Welcome Home Shyne Po! + Possible Deportation

6 10 2009

Shyne
Almost ten years ago from today, Shyne was locked up for charges of attempted murder, assault, and reckless endangerment; after an incident in a Manhattan nightclub involving him, Diddy, and Diddy’s girl at the time, J-Lo. Shyne was then sentenced to 10 years in prison at Clinton Correction Facility in New York. During his 10 year sentence, Shyne released two albums and even got called out by 50 Cent.
Today, Shyne is released from prison and has been the topic of discussion this morning. The people are wondering if he’s going to work with Diddy, who’s showed some interest in working with Shyne again, how his music will sound, or will he still come with the raw rap style he was known for early in his career. There are also rumors of him signing to Jay’s RocNation imprint. Shyne also plans on releasing the follow up to Godfather Buried Alive titled Godfather Exhumed in the future.

Welcome back!

UPDATE
Shyne is currently in Federal custody being detained by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement at an undisclosed detention facility in Western New York State. Federal officials are reviewing the rapper’s immigration status and making a determination on whether or not he will be deported to his native country of Belize. Details are developing.
