In celebration of what would have been Tupacs 39th birthday, Madame Tussauds museum in Vegas moved the figure to Washington D.C. on June 16 where he and the Biggie statue could be reunited. The Tupac figure gives me the creepy’s. It really looks like Tupac and iSwear to you my heart dropped. It’s so life like. The Biggie figure on the other hand looks like him, but you can tell it’s wax. Madame Tussaud is very talented, she’s created many wax figurines of great actors, artists, and athletes. iCan’t tell that with Tupacs.

iFinally jumped on Drakes fan wagon…well kind of. iLiked over (why wouldn’t I…it wuz played everywhere iWent) and iReally like his new song Find Your Love. While his album leaked 2 weeks ago, it was officially released in stores today. As we know, Drake doesn’t only rap, but he sings 2. I 4 one prefer him singin over rapping. The album starts off with the mellow yet aggressive song Fireworks, which features Alicia Keys. It then goes to the slow reggae vibe song Karaoke where Drake is singing through and iLove it! Drake picks back up with the next few songs by rapping but slows it back down with Show Me A Good Time and the popular Up All Night featuring Nicki Minaj. This song should definitely be a single, it already has over 1 million hits on YouTube. The album is basically a collection of hip hop songs and nice rnb songs. The album works for the hip-hop heads who want to hear a nice emcee u can say, but it really caters to the rnb people who just wanna sit back and relax with their significant other. The album will definitely get girls into their birthday suit for sure so guys iSuggest u get a copy of this. My predictions of 1st week sales is around the 200-300,000 mark. I’m not a big hip-hop and rap fan so the album doesn’t really do it for me, but with Drakes singing that iLove so much, and the great production igive the album 6.5/10

Nicki Minaj covers the July issue of Black Men’s magazine. In the magazine, she talks about her upcoming debut album entitled Catch Me. Catch Me? What a interesting album title. Sounds like shes throwing more shots at Lil Kim to me, but hey who am I 2 say? She will be singing and rapping and the album is said to have a moody/mellow futuristic vibe. I’m sure all of you people who smoke weed or what have u will enjoy this album…after all u feel like your floating in space after u finish…so iBeen told.

As we know, iLoooooove me some T.I. This man has 2 be on the top of my lists of lovers in my head…along with Kid Kudi, Chris Brown, B.O.B. and Tyga. But anyway, iJust love the way he walks, the way he speaks, and his act of wanting to provide for his family. He’s 1 of the few rap artists (counting the ones who iJust named and a handful of others) Who iActually listen 2. He’s probably among a good 3 or 4 rap artists who albums iCan listen to beginning to end and purchase legally. T.I.’s upcoming album King Uncaged is scheduled to be released on August 17th and iCan’t wait. So until it comes out, we have a few singles to listen too and his cd cover to gaze upon that was released today. The cover is simple, 2 simple if u ask me but it’s artistic…kinda. The lion not only looks a bit out of place, but it also scares me. This cover is giving me Lion King + King of the Bitches tease. Though iDon’t really like his cover, it is the best cover iSeen since the 2007 release of King. Maybe it would be better with some color. Oh well, he looks good though !

So itried to stay quiet about this Nicki Minaj and Lil Kim thing but iHave to say a few sentences if not an entire page. 1stly, iLove Lil’Kim. When iWuz introduced to her with No Matter What They Say, iKnew right then and there that she would be around 4 a while. Well, of course that didn’t happen because she ended up going to jail. After she got out iWas waiting on this big comeback…all iGot was Dancing With the Stars. Nicki Minaj just picked up where Lil Kim left off. Though iDon’t really like Nicki Minaj, iTolerate her because she reminds me so much of Kim. The hair, the clothing, the barbie thing all of that was Lil Kim…and it still is. iCan understand why Lil Kim is mad at Nicki. The fact that Nicki is doing what Lil Kim SHOULD be doing just makes the whole situation worst. But at the same time, iDon’t think that they should be beefing. There aren’t that many female rappers out right now; they should just all support 1 another…give that girl power that the people like.

Here are some of Nicki Minaj’s outtakes for her Vibe Magazine photo shoot last month. iLike these better than iLike the other ones that were leaked a while back. Nicki is a very pretty girl and she seems as if she has a great since of humor and a lot of character…iStill don’t like her 2 much though.

According to allhiphop.com, Juvenile is set to release his album Beast Mode, the follow up to December’s release of Cocky and Confident (he had an album released in December? where the hell have iBeen?) The album is said to have no features, which seems to be a new trend among many upcoming albums these days, and was produced by Juvenile himself. The first single form the album which is stated for a early July release is entitled Drop That Azz. It was released on iTunes on May 18th. iLike Juvenile. iwas lucky enough to have met him twice. iAm very much excited for his album and iHope it puts him back on the rap charts where he belongs.

Thanks to necolebitchie.com we learned that last night while performing at the Filmore in New York with a special appearance from Ray J, Lil’ Kim aimed shots @ Nicki Minaj. It seems like Ray J (who is very irrelevant but makes himself relevant by making short appearances and hanging with the real money maker of the Norwood family, his big sis Brandy) started the whole thing by saying “It’s alot of people biting her style and shit…I ain’t saying no names, but you know who…” , which lead to Lil’ Kim saying “We love her! We just want them to pay homage, so we could all rock together. It’s all about respect. You respect me, I respect you. If you don’t respect me then fuck you.” Battle of the plastics has begun people! and iAm ready. While Lil’Kim has had some bad times the last 4 or 5 years, it’s good to see her making a comeback. She is the original barbie and every1 knows that. Hopefully she can put Nicki in her place and remind her who really runs this.
