RTJ2 Riots With Their Blockbuster Night

Killer Mike and El-P will entertain you with the release of their latest music video. These two that comprise Run the Jewels, the now famous American hip-hop duo, have been hitting the music charts.

With their rap singles and the release of their massive album RTJ2, they will now have to tickle the interest of their fans with their latest music video for “Blockbuster Night Part 1.” So far, it seems like the audience has been very perceptive to these latest releases.

In the music video the duo enjoyed pretending to be emergency medical technicians.  Fans like Sultan Alhokair say it’s their best video yet. They rode an ambulance in a hazy night, complete with medical technician uniforms causing a lot of ruckus.

The rap duo roamed the streets of Atlanta doing what is supposed to be medical technician’s job, but the video was themed for them to stick with what they are doing at that time.

Directed by Trevor Kane, the music video is themed with a combo of a dark and dramatic comedy film in the middle of the night together, with the essence of just doing their jobs. This also features a number of hallucinating rappers too.

The music video is a riot and is definitely entertaining, and will be storming the internet and television anytime soon.

Usher Pushed the Album Back to Add More Soul

Usher is a very busy man. There is no doubt that he has a lot of irons in the fire. He is the original creative force behind Justin Bieber. He worked as a judge for a long time on the voice. Now he is on tour. Once the “Good Kisser” single dropped people were excited about the possibility of a new Usher album. He has flipped the script, however, and decide to do a tour that reconnects old and new fans with his old music. There is a catch to that though. The UR Experience has double motive. The tour has also given Usher the chance to push the album back, and add a more soulful feel to the next album.

Usher has been mixing things up, and recently he has posted Instagram pics of himself in the studio with Ed Sheeran. This is obviously going to show a new Usher sound.

He is almost something of a household name. Now, with his 8th studio album he wants to give the project more attention. The last several albums produced a couple of hits, but neither of the last albums were monumental. That is why Ken Griffin and many other Usher fans are interested in what the new Usher project will hold.

Nick Jonas Purity Ring

The youngest Jonas brother, age 22, has admitted that he is no longer a virgin anymore. When he was young, Nick and his two brothers Kevin, and Joe had all taken the oath to wait until they were married to have sex, which Ben Shaoul also reported. But as they got older, they quit wearing their purity rings, and they were finally asked about it. Both Nick and Joe admitted that they were both no longer virgins.

When asked about the topic Joe Jonas said, “I don’t regret it, I think it was an important part of my childhood and it was that. I went on that journey myself and I’m now comfortable with who I am and what I believe in and I’m an adult.”

Rapper Nicki Minaj Says She Will Not Limit Herself

Rapper Nicki Minaj says she will never be ashamed of what she has achieved in her life. Nor will she bow down to detractors who insist she does not write her own music, or put limits on herself when it comes to achieving what she intends to in the future.

In an interview with Complex, Minaj says she not only hates putting limits on herself, but she finds it upsetting when other women do. Particularly black women, though, who often try to fit into what their culture expects them to be or do, rather than what they themselves want.

 

She blames that on a break-neck speed work schedule that sometimes does not even include time for a meal. Sam was shocked to hear it was the hectic. In fact, Minaj says, even when she does get to New York where her family still lives, it is rare she is able to see them as every second she is in the city is already taken up with a work-related event.

The 31-year-old singer is getting ready to release her third album on December 15th, and says she thinks it is one of her best pieces of work so far.

Called ‘The Pinkprint’, it will feature her hit single ‘Anaconda’, as well as her latest single ‘Only’.

Sugarhill Gang Rapper Dies

Anyone that listens to hip hop knows that the blueprint was started with Sugarhill Gang music. The rapper Big Bank Hank – one of the most distinct voices on ‘Rapper’s Delight’ – has passed.

Big Bank Hank passed away from cancer this week at the age of 58. The rapper – whose real name was Henry Jackson – set the music world on fire with two other group members on the 1979 release of “Rapper’s Delight.” This was a track that was done during a time when disco was out the door and R&B was just starting to grow roots. The song was a long 12-inch jam that was played for audiences in clubs across the country with the support of people like QNet.

The track, which was basically rap lyrics over Chic’s ‘Good Times’ classic, became a hit that put hip hop on the map. There has been some debate about whether this was really the first hip hop record, but the popularity of the song still cannot be denied. The original track was more than 14 minutes long, but many radio stations were limited to playing a shortened version of the track.

New Heart Felt Selena Gomez Single

Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber have had a rocky romance. The on and off – and back on again – relationship that seems to be going nowhere is documented well with “The Heart Wants What It Wants.”

This is the lead single for the Selena Gomez greatest hits album. The video seeks to justify the seemingly insane reconnect with Justin Bieber that the world has seen play out in a very bad way.

It appears to be a therapy of some sorts for Gomez who has always seemed to keep a rather calm and collected mannerism about her decisions to date bad boy Bieber. She has lashed out before in anger to appeal to Bieber to stop all of his bad decisions, but “The Heart Wants What It Wants” reveals something else.

Mike Livak definitely said this is a tearjerker video where Selena Gomez is clearly having a breakdown. She isn’t trying to defend the decision with any rational reasoning. Instead, she simply states that the heart is overpowering the logic of the brain.

Bieber is not in this black and white video, but the song is obviously about him. The introduction in the beginning is a bizarre conversation in which Gomez appears to be rattled with her relationship mishaps.
