NEW MUSIC: JUSTIN BEIBER FT KANYE WEST AND RAEKWON – RUNAWAY LOVE (REMIX)

When I first heard about this collaboration (Kanye’s idea) I looked at a picture of Raekwon taken during the glorious Wu-Tang era and sighed. Die hard Raekwon / Wu-Tang fans must all be looking up to the sky and shaking their heads in despair. Check out some of the comments below posted on The Smoking Section website. Raekwon’s verse was actually dope…why are you giving him all the sh*t? If anyone should be getting smacked it’s Kanye. WHY IS KANYE MOLESTING MY CHILDHOOD!? I can understand why Bieber wanted []

PIC OF THE DAY: BEYONCE AND JAY-Z LIVE IT UP OFF THE FRENCH RIVIERA

“Superstar” couple Jay-Z and Beyonce have been photographed having a wail of a time, sunning themselves on a yacht off the French Riviera.

POLICE SHUT DOWN DRAKE CONCERT IN NEW YORK

Rapper/singer Drake released his highly anticipated debut album Thank Me Later yesterday, and decided to throw a free concert in New York.

He disclosed to the ridiculous Daily Star that, “People say I’m selling out but it doesn’t get to me anymore.

RIHANNA GIG REVIEW – THE O2 BRIXTON ACADEMY (LONDON)

Last night (November 16th) I attended Rihanna’s highly anticipated show at London’s O2 Brixton Academy in association with Nokia. The event was billed as being a private gig (invite only) that was due to be hosted at a private location. I initially thought that it would be taking place in a sophisticated dark intimate setting in some trendy night club. But I almost choked on my D&G Grape Soda when I heard the words “Brixton Academy”.    “Private” and “invite only” were both []
