Miley Cyrus is expected to top the album charts this week, but one rapper is projected to have a solid, top-3 showing. G.O.O.D. Music rapper, Pusha T, finally dropped his solo album, My Name Is My Name, after multiple delays, and it’s expected to finish the week somewhere in the top 3.
Jimmy Kimmel found himself in unfamiliar territory when he unknowingly sparked a rap feud with Hip Hop star Kanye West. The late night host did a spoof of Kanye’s interview with the BBC where he said (to no one’s surprise) a bunch of ridiculous stuff. The spoof featured children re-enacting the awkward interview.
Tiger Woods was destined to play golf. His poppa dukes got him into the game before he could wipe his own azz. His skills were on full display at age 2 when he appeared on The Mike Douglas Show and putted against comedian Bob Hope. The rest is a wrap – PGA Tour Rookie of the Year, 11-time PGA Player of the Year, 11-time PGA Tour Player of the Year, 10-time PGA Tour leading money winner and possibly a world record holder for banging the most snow bunnies. It’s too early to tell if this youngster is going to follow in Woods’s footsteps in womanizing, but the 3-year-old could be the next big thing in golf!
Forbes listed Diddy as the most wealthy man in Hip Hop in 2013. But the boss of Bad Boy wanted to clarify one thing. He let it be known that the impact he has on other peoples’ lives is truly what defines his success. Right… I wonder how Loon, the girl-group Dream and everyone who’s ever been on “Making The Band” feel about that.
Halloween will be here before you know it. The kiddies are itching to put on their costumes and collect enough candy to turn their blood into caramel. I do have to ask one question, though: who exactly came up with the term “fun size” when referring to tiny versions of candy bars? What in the hell is FUN about a piece of candy the size of a normal-sized candy bar’s turd?
Randy Jackson’s reign as Mariah Carey’s manager is coming to an end. One of MiMi’s long-time collaborators will step in to help guide the diva, Jermaine Dupri. In a statement, JD said “A multi-talented artist of Mariah’s caliber should be doing everything imaginable.” Like what? Judging American Idol? I digress…
Pusha T’s new album, My Name Is My Name, is finally on-sale as of today after a number of delays. He first hit the scene in 2002 as a part of the rap duo, the Clipse. This is T’s first solo studio album with Kanye’s G.O.O.D. music. Although he reps Kanye’s label, he made it clear in an interview with Complex that the two are very different.
Jay Z showed his “human” side during a show in Manchester, England. While performing the track, “No Church In The Wild,” featuring Kanye and Frank Ocean, the world’s greatest appeared to forget some lyrics.
Halloween will be here before you know it and spooky things are already happening around the Capital Region. The Times Union is reporting that a woman’s remains were found in the crawl space of a home in East Greenbush. Yikes!
NBA 2k14 was released on Tuesday and is receiving great reviews from critics. Gamers, on the other hand, have been hot and cold with their opinions about this year’s offering. New features like “Path to Greatness”, featuring LeBron James, have been added while favorites like MYplayer make their return. This year’s game also adds extra flair with the addition of Euro-league teams, but popular squads from year’s past have been left out.
Pusha T’s career was revived upon signing with Kanye West’s camp. His G.O.O.D. Music album, My Name Is My Name, is set to be released on Tuesday, October 8th. Naturally, Kanye was responsible for production on some of the beats, but was another producer who’s more famous for his acting chops responsible for one of the tracks as well? Not according to him.
I’m not sure how I managed to miss this story, but a nasty incident occurred at Bow Tie Cinemas Movieland 6 in Schenectady nearly three months ago. Theaters do their best to prevent moviegoers from distracting others during the showing of their films. But as is evident from this incident, there will always be people out there who just DGAF.
A man and one of his daughters were brutally assaulted by a group after asking the teens to quiet down.
There are award shows for everything these days – video games, porn stars, “manly” things, “teen” stuff, comedy, stage plays, etc. Now you can add YouTuber to the list of music awards.
The first ever YouTube Music Awards will take place on Nov. 3 and will stream live on YouTube (shocker). The show will be hosted by actor, Jason Schwartzman, and will feature performances by Lady Gaga, Arcade Fire and Eminem.
50 Cent and Game have been involved in a well-documented feud since 2005. The older, wiser, rap veterans have shown their maturity when describing their beef in recent years. Game dusted off the old topic during an interview with Larry King, saying he hasn’t seen Fif in about eight years.
Hot 99.1 proudly presents our brand new, “Read to Succeed” initiative. Throughout the fall and winter we want to visit as many Capital Region elementary classrooms as possible. Hot 99.1’s Tanch will come in to read to the kids and speak to them about how important it is to read, help others and treat people with respect. We’ll also bring local artists to select visits to sing an uplifting song for the children.
Busta Rhymes is preparing to drop a new album in November, Extinction Level Event 2. He revealed some details in an interview with XXL, and it sounds epic. Guests scheduled to appear on the album include Lil Wayne and Kanye West. He also has a record with Eminem, which he hyped up big time.
Popular video games have been adapted for the big screen for years now. It’s a trend that isn’t going anywhere any time soon, with popular titles like Assassins Creed and Uncharted rumored to be getting the big screen treatment in the near future. Games like Prince of Persia, Super Mario Brothers, Doom and Resident Evil were mostly well received (maybe not Super Mario Brothers) with fans, but were considered flops according to critics and box office numbers. So how do you think the latest crossover, Need for Speed, will do?
The dude, A$AP Rocky, is hotter than sliced bread right now.
Just ask Rihanna! Chill, Drake. You mad, bruh?
The Harlem rapper with an affection for fashion has quickly became one of the most sought after artists in the game. His debut album, Long.Live.ASAP, was a critical success. He’s toured with Wiz Khalifa and Rihanna and now, he’s a spokesperson.
UAlbany has made a lot of “top” lists for different reasons. But this one “takes the cake” (pun intended). Complex listed the university as being home to one of the grossest college cafeterias in the country.
Grand Theft Auto V is one of the most wildly popular games in years (probably since the last GTA). Many aspects of the game require you to drive around the city of Los Santos in a variety of vehicles. The digital city is absolutely enormous, so you have plenty of time to bump your favorite fictional radio station while cruising around the city.
It’s hard to believe with all the success he’s had, Drake only has two studio albums with his name on them. That changes today, though.
His latest project, which he had been working on for a little over a year, is officially out today. “Nothing Was The Same” has already been leaked, but it shouldn’t effect numbers in a significant way. The album will most likely finish the week on top of the charts.
“All you damn kids with your loud music!” said every old person ever. But one AARP card-holder took out his frustrations in an extreme way last week. The Freedom of Expression Music and Arts Festival took place in Queensbury over the weekend, and a 75-year-old man who lives near the venue visited the event and voiced his displeasure by brandishing his trusty steel piece.
Rihanna is a dangerous girl to be around. Drake and Chris Brown got into a night club brawl which was, allegedly, a product of both being romantically linked to the song bird. New York Knicks guard, JR Smith, was the target of critics during last season’s NBA Playoffs when photos surfaced of the two cozying up at a club the night before a game. Now, one of her Instagram photos could end up landing two men in jail.
