2009 MTV Movie Awards Shock Value

1 06 2009

mtv-movie-awards-poster1
I attended the MTV Movie Awards last night at the Gibson Amphitheatre on Universal Citywalk. The award show was decent; saw a lot of celebrities in the building, the set up was nice, and unfortunately “Twilight” won damn near every award.
What seems to be the talk of the net is the stunt performed by Sacha Baron Cohen in character as “Bruno”; a gay Austrian news reporter who also has a movie dropping in July. Bruno hangs from the ceiling dressed as an angel to present the “Best Male Performer” award. Instead of making his way to the stage, he “accidentally” falls onto Eminem’s lap with his butt in Em’s face. Peep the video below:

28 05 2009

519 releases
Last Tuesday, May 19th; various hip hop artists dropped albums. Some of those artists include Eminem, Busta Rhymes, Method Man & Redman, and mixtape veteran DJ Drama. Eminem has a reputation for successfull album sales and was highly likely to have the number one spot this past week. Eminem already surpasses gold status with his Relapse album. There was a mistake with the charts putting Method Man & Redman at number 4, when they are actually at spot number 7, leading to Busta Rhymes outselling the duo. Continue reading for the numbers!

TI GunLike usual celebrity sentences, T.I. gets his reduced to 2 months due to his agreement to do house arrest, community service, including his MTV docureality show Road to Redemption. Initially Tip was supposed to do a 366 day sentence for a weapon charge and the huge reduction proves that money talks.

Today was one of the first major release dates for hip hop in a while. Eminem dropped his highly anticipated Relapse album, Busta Rhymes got Back on his BS, and Method Man and Redman release their follow up to their Blackout! album. It’s obvious that Eminem is going to lead the sales with his reputation for chart topping albums and is slated to move around 300k units at Best Buy retailers alone for the first week. Method Man and Redman fall into second place on the sales estimates with Busta in third place. As the week goes on we’ll get a better idea of what the first week progresses. I copped Blackout! 2 and Relapse, which ones will you be getting?





Album Review: Eminem – Relapse

19 05 2009

eminem relapse

It’s been almost five years since Eminem released his last studio album Encore. The album stuck to Eminem’s traditional formula, but came off overly comical and was hailed as a disappointment by fans. Following Encore, Em when on a four year hiatus; releasing a greatest hits album and a Shady Records compilation. Aside from those, Marshall has been absent from appearances in the media and on wax. The anticipation then built for his next project Relapse, which is a head trip of stories of child molestation, murdering female celebrities, and drug addicted Mother’s. To fulfill everyone’s needs for a new album, Eminem collaborates with Dr. Dre for thorough production, and limited guest appearances.

News: Kanye Explains His Heartbreak, Eminem Has a Relapse, Ne-Yo Bows Out of Beef

17 10 2008
Kanye Hosts Listening Party for 808’s & Heartbreaks, and Announces Next Album

This past Tuesday, Kanye West threw a listening party for the upcoming 808’s & Heartbreak album. Ye hooked up with Italian artist Vanessa Beecroft (who co-signed 808’s…, stating it touched her “personal life”) to add an artistic touch to his party. The scenery was made up of up to 50 nude model chicks which was contributed by Beecroft. Jay-z, Will.I.Am., Rick Ross, and Mos Def were amongst some of the guests that were in the building.
So now about the album, there were rumors that the album will be in full auto-tune, and that is true. Kanye expressed his love for the auto-tune sound which helped influence him to do a full album using the auto-tune. Kanye also stated that this album is “pop”. Here’s what Mr. West had to say about peoples opinion on the Pop genre “People think pop is bad, but Michael Jackson was pop and who can compare to him?” Kanye also had this to say about the latest project “I don’t give a fuck if it’s hot or not, it’s from the heart… Would you judge a grandmother’s love? Give it two-and-a-half mics out of five?” Kanye felt it was important that this album was released this year and he also has another album dropping in June where he may be rapping or singing.

This sounds like it will definitely be an interesting album. The fact that Kanye is doing what he feels with his music and speaking from his heart is excellent. That’s a true musician for you. Instead of making music for the paper the artist is supposed to give you them. 808’s & Heartbreak will be in stores Nov. 25th!

Ne-Yo Vs. Young Berg Comes to an End (thank God)

Random. Recently Ne-Yo sat down with Big Boy’s Morning Show on Power 106, and of course they asked him a set of funny yet random questions. Big Boy asked Ne-Yo questions about groupies he’s taken down and who would he slap if he had the chance to. Without any hesitation, Ne-yo said Young Berg. When asked why, Ne-Yo said he feels Berg is unoriginal and he’s copying Wayne & Ye’s style on his track “The Business”. As soon as Berg got the word, here’s what he had to say:

Ne-Yo responded ending the beef. Check the vid below:
