Kanye West is pulling out all stops in order to promote his untitled release which is out next month. First, West stopped by the Facebook headquarters earlier this week, and more recently he has spoken with Rolling Stone on the inspiration behind the album.
Wow, Kanye is a pretty good speaker. He should make more of these stops to get his fans hyped for his album. Not a bad way to market a project.
Kanye West did something we never thought he would do, having diamond implants put in on his bottom row of teeth. Isn’t this dated now? This was a thing for Juvenile and Flavor Flav, doesn’t fit Kanye that well.
We think they look tight, but how long will those be in for? Read the rest of this entry »
Check this out! Rick Ross is creating his own small movie for his latest album Teflon Don. Ross’ team released the promo which we think is pretty awesome. The last small movie we saw was when Fabolous dropped Loso’s Way last summer.
Can’t wait to see the finished product.
T.I. finally made an honest man out of himself, officially tying the knot with girlfriend of 9-years Tameka “Tiny” Cottle, Saturday (July 31) in Miami.
Their weekend wedding started off Friday, when the couple apparently exchanged vows at a courthouse. Reports were going around that they were married on Star Island, but the couple’s PR said that never took place.
In order to share their special moment with everyone, they plan to spread the ceremony over three cities, including Vegas and Atlanta.
Carmelo Anthony and his bride Lala Vazquez decided to take a honeymoon that the two would never forget. Instead of heading to a popular honeymoon destination the couple decided to vacation in Costa Rica.
They enjoyed everything from fishing to zip lining, and Mr. Carmelo caught quite the fish while on their fishing trip.

Good friends Jay-Z and Kanye West enjoyed drinks together yesterday, at Nello’s Italian restaurant in the Upper East Side of NYC.
Kanye is still rocking his suit w/ black tie that he wore to his trip to the Facebook headquarters earlier this week. Wonder what the two were discussing?
Maybe they were brainstorming names for Kanye’s next album?
Damn! Guess some things are just too good to be true.
Wiz Khalifa‘s gang has just announced that the new MC and his independent label Rostrum Records will be heading to Atlantic Records. Wish he would have signed with Ross, but anyplace is better than having to do it all on your own.
Big ups to Khalifa for finding a new home. Congrats!
One of the hottest new MC’s on the block, Wiz Khalifa, is getting quite the attention these days after he just scored the No. 1 spot for MTV’s recent Breakthrough MC of 2010 list.
Now, a big BIG dog has stepped forward to offer the MC a chance to join his record label. Rick Ross wants Khalifa in a bad way, taking to MTV to make a public plea for the new comer to join Mayback Music.
Here’s what Ross had to say:
“You know, Wiz, what’s happening, this is the Boss, Ricky Ross, Teflon Don. You know we spoke of this in the last week or two, but my question is even more personal that I’d love to ask you right now. What would it take for us to close the deal, Wiz Khalifa and Maybach Music?
Hell yes he should join Rozay. Can’t imagine the projects these two would work on. Let’s hope Wiz wants to join the Miami team.
Heidi Montag has apparently come to her senses, deciding to file a petition for dissolution of her marriage with crystal lover Spencer Pratt. In June, Heidi filed for legal separation from the homeless man, shortly before she and Pratt were spotted filming a new reality show together in Malibu. Heidi has since skipped on the show with friend Jen Bunny, and now seems to be getting her crap together.
Heidi’s lawyer spoke on the papers, “The couple has agreed they would like their divorce to be finalized in a timely manner in an out of court settlement. Both parties are amicable with each other and over the possibility of finalizing their divorce.”
Out of court settlement? For what? Spencer spent all his Hills dough on crystals! Spency had this to say about the divorce being finalized, “Well, some say if you can’t handle the heat get out of the kitchen. Heidi couldn’t handle King Spencer’s fame so she got out of the marriage.”
HAHA! ohh man we love this kid. Brings back that feeling of sickness every time we hear his voice!
Check out some epic pics from Kanye West‘s video shoot for his new single “Power” off his now untitled release. West has been working very hard on the concept behind on the video, bringing on video artist and film producer Marco Brambilla.
Mr. Brambilla recently spoke with the New York Times about working on the video, and shared some crazy details of what is in the works. Here’s a piece of the interview:
In a coming video for his single “Power” that was created by the artist Marco Brambilla, Mr. West is seen standing imposingly with a heavy chain around his neck. As Mr. West raps, the camera slowly zooms out in one continuous, unedited take to reveal him in a classical structure, surrounded by female attendants who are partly or entirely nude; some kneel before him on all fours, others wear devil horns and still others are suspended upside down from the ceiling. The sword of Damocles hangs precariously over Mr. West’s head, and behind him an unseen executioner is preparing to strike him with a blade. (ArtsBeat was allowed to watch a portion of this video but was not permitted to post it.)
In a telephone interview, Mr. Brambilla explained that he was drawn to the project because, he said, “it’s kind of apocalyptic, in a very personal way.”
Speaking of Mr. West’s track “Power,” which includes refrains like “No one man should have all that power” and “This would be a beautiful death,” Mr. Brambilla said: “It had this very dark, personal conflict within it. Because of his own concept of celebrity and his own notoriety, he’s keenly self-aware of all these things. And it all came out in the music.”
