ALL I CAN DO IS LAUGH: KANYE WEST SETS UP TWITTER ACCOUNT

It’s just been brought to my attention that rapper Kanye West has apparently set up his very own Twitter account. I find this news extremely funny because last year Kanye was very vocal in his dislike of Twitter and wrote on his website, “DON’T HAVE A F****** TWITTER… WHY WOULD I USE TWITTER???

VIDEO: RICK ROSS FT STYLES P – B.M.F

Annie should have denied their request to use the sample. Look… I’m sure Nicki’s a lovely woman but musically she’s RUBBISH! Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?

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.
