Jay-Z Recites New Verse At Barclays

Posted in 1 on September 29, 2012 by bobbybounce

Jay-Z starts off his first show in BK with “99 Problems”, but before that he lets go of a new verse:

This is Rich Porter, part two
You can stunt like that when you’re rich before your debut
Money and the murder, rapper or the trapper
Either way I’m gonna serve ya
Shooters on my team… No really, I got shooters on my team
Juan or Deron
How you niggas want it, pick a arm
They call me Lucky Lefty…
Ball so hard I don’t respect the fuckin’ referees

Props: Complex

Nicki Minaj Cashes In $12,000,000 Deal, Grabs “America” By The Throat [Video]

Posted in 1 on September 17, 2012 by bobbybounce

After weeks of speculation, Young Money’s Nicki Minaj will add some flavor to the upcoming season of “American Idol” by taking part as one of the music reality show’s judges.

Reports of the $12 million deal surfaced online late Sunday (September 16) evening.

The “American Idol” judges’ panel is now complete with the naming of singer-rapper Nicki Minaj and country crooner Keith Urban. The Fox network officially tapped the pair with an announcement Sunday, confirming rumors surrounding them both just hours before the first round of auditions for next season was due to begin in New York. Minaj is getting $12 million for a one-year deal on the hit Fox singing series, a person in the music industry with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press on Sunday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly discuss the deal. (Wall Street Journal)

Executives behind “American Idol” have also confirmed the deal.

Not long after last season’s “Idol” finale, with its traditional crowning of the Cute Scruffy White Guy with Guitar (Phil Phillips), attracted the smallest wrapup audience in the show’s history, Fox execs promised investors and TV critics the show would undergo a shakeup. And “shakeup” has come to mean bringing in a new crop of celebrity judges. “Nicki is someone who represents a different side of the music industry, who has now crossed into mainstream culture with her unique artistry, style and flair. Keith is one of country music’s true stars who brings with him charm, wit and knowledge about the industry,” said Cecile Frot-Coutaz, the chief executive of “Idol”-producing FremantleMedia, by way of explaining the new judges.

“American Idol” ended the 2011-12 season as the leading entertainment show and No. 2 overall, just behind NBC’s top-rated “Sunday Night Football.” But the show aired its least-watched finale ever and the advertiser-favored young adult audience has been steadily shrinking. The show’s cachet hasn’t been helped by a run of champions who have failed to achieve the career sizzle of past competitors Jennifer Hudson, Carrie Underwood or Kelly Clarkson. (Associated Press)

Last year, former “Idol” judge Simon Cowell tried to snag Minaj for his “X-Factor” show.

“I can’t talk about that, but I love Simon very dearly,” the Lil Wayne protégé answered in a British accent. “He’s such an amazing man. I had the pleasure of meeting him and my life will never be the same, darling. I told him that. I was absolutely in love with him prior to meeting him. And now that I’ve met him, it’s like I dream about him every night.” (MTV)

Posted in 1 on September 11, 2012 by bobbybounce

Life is good and Nas plans to ring in the new year in a good way as well. Esco just announced that he will welcome 2013 with a concert at NYC’s Radio Music Hall on December 31. Tix go on sale this Friday.

Tickets Go On Sale this Friday, September 14th at Noon

“There is no better place for me to spend New Year’s Eve than New York City, and there aren’t many better places to perform in this world than Radio City.” -Nas

Following the release of his best-selling #1 new album Life Is Good, and a standout performance on this year’s Rock the Bells tour, hip-hop’s most influential MC has announced an exclusive show at Radio City Music Hall on New Year’s Eve. Fans can purchase tickets beginning this Friday, September 14th at noon- the same day Nas will be celebrating his 39th birthday. Elle Varner has been confirmed as support. Doors for the concert will open at 9pm.

Nas’s new album, Life Is Good, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 Album charts (selling 149,000 copies in its first week), marking the sixth #1 album that the artist has produced during his career. The collection has received rave reviews from critics and fans alike including from The New York Times who raved, “A simulacrum of the sound that made him legendary, capturing Nas in his vintage prime without coming off as anachronistic. Life Is Good would probably have been among the best hip-hop albums of 1993 and, as it happens, is likely to be one of the best hip-hop albums of 2012,” from Rolling Stone who noted, “The Queens rap godfather spits vicious rhymes over a rugged, island flavored beat,” and from The Los Angeles Times who said, “On Life Is Good, the rapper known for his sharp wit and biting social commentary taps into one of his most honest and compelling subject matters yet: himself.”
