Detroit native B Free and Diggy Simmons, were introduced by Big Sean’s best friend Earlly Mac, and decided to collaborate on a song together. Both artists recorded the single together in Los Angeles, CA. For the video, Diggy flew out to Detroit, where they shot the video, and he helped with the radio promo of the single “All Mine”. The single was produced by PGF and the video was directed by Nick Margetic. According to B Free, “Sometimes collaborations can feel awkward or forced, but with Diggy it was natural from the second I landed.” 

 B Free’s EP “Lost in Paradise” streams on all platforms April 5th.

Nipsey Hussle’s death was felt deeply in Crenshaw, the neighborhood where he grew up and maintained a regular presence after becoming a Grammy-nominated artist. His fans said he offered hope, advocated self-improvement and financially invested in the community, which has long struggled with violent crime. He opened a co-working space dedicated to increasing diversity in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, and planned to meet Monday with police officials to discuss ways to prevent gang violence.

His debut studio album, “Victory Lap,” was nominated for best rap album at the Grammys last year and debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard chart. He had two children, Kross and Emani.

Cardi B, Steve Carrell and Lil Jon Star in Pepsi Super Bowl Commercial [Video]

On Monday (Jan. 28), Pepsi unveiled its highly anticipated Super Bowl LIII commercial, starring Cardi B, Steve Carrell and Lil Jon. The 60-second clip, titled “More Than OK,” centers around the exchange between a waiter and a customer at a diner. When ordering a Coke, the waiter asks, “Is Pepsi OK?” Carrell then appears in the booth behind her to show why Pepsi is “more than OK!”

To prove a point, he gets Lil Jon, who delivers his signature catchphrase, “O-KAYYY!”

Cardi B, shimmering in a blue and silver jacket, bursts through the doors while her hit “I Like It” plays. “Okurrr!” she says before grabbing a diamond-studded Pepsi can and walking through the diner!

See the Pepsi commercial in full below.

XXXTentacion Reportedly Signed a $10 Million Record Deal Weeks Before He Was Killed

According to the New York Times, slain rapper XXXTentacion signed a $10 million contract with independent music company Empire Distribution.

via NYDN:

Empire founder Ghazi Shami wouldn’t confirm the financials to the Times, but said that “a significant amount of material” for XXXTentacion’s third album has already been recorded. That music, however, likely won’t be heard until at least October, due to a previous contract.

The controversial rapper released “17,” his debut album, in August 2017, debuting at No. 2 on the Billboard Top 200. His follow-up, “?,” debuted at No. 1 on the top 200 this past March.

In May, Spotify announced that it would stop promoting XXXTentacion’s music, citing its Hate Content and Hateful Conduct policy; the rapper’s lengthy rap sheet includes robbery, assault with a deadly weapon, false imprisonment and aggravated battery of his pregnant girlfriend.

The music service eventually reinstated the problematic performer’s music on its playlists and XXXTentacion broke Taylor Swift’s single-day streaming record the day after he was shot and killed at a motorcycle dealership in Deerfield Beach, Fla.

In late June, 22-year-old Dedrick Devonshay Williams pleaded not guilty to charges including the first-degree murder of the rapper. Two other suspects are reportedly still being eyed by the Broward County Sheriff’s Office.

Check out XXXtentacion’s video SAD below.

Rapper Future Is Being Accused By A Young Lady For Not Paying For Her Flight To Come Meet Up With Him!

A young lady from Mobile, Alabama claims that Rapper Future had her fly out to California recently to meet up with him. She claimed that the rapper promised to pay her back the money she spent on the flight once she arrived. According to Shamartess, Future said he would pay her back “1000%” for the $550 plane ticket to Los Angeles she purchased to come visit him.

She stated that once she arrived to the hotel that the rapper had booked for her, to obviously spend time with him, that the front desk clerk stated the room was only available for  one night.  She shared on social media….

“He never had plans on paying me, I asked front desk did he cancel one of my nights…they said the room was booked for one night from the start..so that mean he had plans on f*cking me, not paying me, and putting me out…” 

It seems that it was obvious he wasn’t looking to hang out with her. We are not sure if the two met on some type of business deal but however things went sour after the rapper did not meet up with her to give her the money back for the flight. The young lady also claimed that the rapper’s baby mom called her afterwards.

 Should Future give her back her money for flying out to see him or nah?

Christopher Martin of “KID N’ PLAY” Discusses His Journey in the Music Industry & New Hip-Hop Film Documentary!

Related image

During the late 1980’s and early 1990’s the voices of Hip-Hop were starting to be heard across cultural and socio-economic lines bringing light to the street life. One of the crews that played a major voice in this era was the hip hop duo known as, Kid N’ Play.

Christopher Martin most popularly known as “Play” from the late 80s/early 90s Hip Hop duo, Kid N’ Play, is one of the iconic pioneers of the Hip Hop culture when it comes to music and dance! Christopher “Play” Martin along with co-member of the group, Christopher Reid formerly known as Kid, helped to pave the way and open doors to the social revolution of dance within the hip hop culture!

Outside of memorable lyrics and the group’s famous dances known as the Kick Step and the Funky Charleston, the group aided in bringing attention to the art and creativity of dance.

Classic films like ‘House Party’, ‘Class Act’ and even a popular animated 90s cartoon series based on the real life of the hip-hop duo, was just one of the many amazing creations behind the multi-talented group.

The New York native, Christopher Martin now has a new film documentary called, “ANDiDANCED” which is about the women and men who danced and helped to make a lot of the 80s – 90s rappers and singers performances exciting, and unforgettable. (ANDiDanced.com)

In the documentary, he plans to travel from city to city to speak with the dancers responsible for the videos, dance shows and images we enjoy til this very day. A few of the rap artists appearing in the documentary include, LL Cool J, NWA, Salt ‘n Pepa,  MC Hammer, Kool Moe Dee, MC Lyte, Naughty By Nature, Queen Latifah, Big Daddy Kane, Heavy D, Slick Rick, Kid N’ Play, and a host of others!

The executive producers of the show are Christopher “Play” Martin and Cheryl “Salt” James. Producers are Shane Johnson and Donielle Artese.

Recently I had the honor and the pleasure of interviewing the Hip Hop icon, Christopher Martin on my radio show (Starrdom100 Radio) and he discussed his journey into the hip hop culture as well as shed some light on his new film documentary, “ANDiDANCED.” As a 80s baby and true fan of Kid N’ Play, the experience was exciting! Take a brief look at a few excerpts from the interview below.

Christopher Martin 2

Tanisha Davis: Who was Christopher Martin before being known as “Play”?

“Christopher Martin was an accident waiting to happen. Coming up in the streets of New York, you didn’t have the images or the inspiration that you have today, especially in Hip Hop because it didn’t exist. Matter of fact it was an era and a time believe it or not on this planet where Hip Hop didn’t exist, and when it did begin to come, it wasn’t even called Hip Hop. So I wasn’t really relating to what was happening in the schools, I was more attracted to what was happening in the streets because that’s what looked like success for a young black boy or teenager. I was attracted to a lot of the negative elements in the streets, and that was becoming my aspiration and inspiration. My father was doing his thing successfully or so I thought in the streets, so I wanted to be with him and then combine that with the images I was seeing in the movie theaters. I was just going to be the best, I guess, criminal I could be and I flirted with that, tampered with that, and thank God he used something that was eventually going to be called Hip Hop to save my life.”

Tanisha Davis: You have a new documentary film called “AndIDanced” tell me about that.

“It’s something I have been working on for many years now, it took that long to be able to accomplish it. I have been traveling around the country and trying to find a lot of old friends to have great conversation with, which included many of the dancers who were responsible for the success of a lot of entertainers, rappers and singers……..It’s really just talking to them about how they started out in low budget videos and R&B videos that are now considered R&B & Hip Hop classics.”

 Tanisha Davis: What are your thoughts on NBA player Lebron James doing a House Party remake?

“I think it’s great. Lebron James has always shown nothing but love for Kid and I. It’s very apparent how much he loves the work that we have done. There have been times where he has even posted pictures of his two sons with haircuts that he did to recreate the looks of Kid N’ Play. We did an Allstate commercial with him at one time, so he’s a great person, and I know what he is trying to do and what he is doing with accomplishing and trying to make a difference in entertainment. So no, I have no problem with that at all. They say the highest form of flattery is imitation.”
