On the eve of the release of his tenth album Life Is Good, Nas hit the stage on Late Night with David Letterman to perform “Daughters.” The Illmatic rapper looked dapper in a collared shirt and white pants as he spit the lyrics to the third single from his new album, which hit stores today.
It’s no secret that over the years Kanye West and the members of the media have developed a love/hate relationship — they LOVE to see him slipping and he HATES them (some) to the core. Whatever the case, Kanye and I share a similar hatred (well, mine is more like a strong dislike) for gossip site MediaTakeOut.
During his show at Revel Resort in Atlantic City over the weekend, Ye shared his disdain for the gossip site. “Just look at MediaTakeOut, they so f*ckin’ full of sh*t. Show your mothaf*ckin’ face, so I could smack the sh*t out of you,” he yelled.
Today marks three years since the death of the greatest entertainer of all time, Michael Jackson.
Despite his passing, MJ’s legacy lives on through his timeless music.

A lot has changed for Tiffany Evans, the girl who wowed us on Star Search and jigged with Ciara in music video for “Promise Ring.” The now 19-year-old singer, who released her new single last week, returns as a wife and expecting mother, with a more mature sound.
“If You Love Me,” a piano-led ballad, is the first single from her upcoming EP, Take 1. Evans says it’s “one of the most emotional records” she’s ever written.
“It’s about a couple breaking up. When I hear a lot of songs, it’s about men pursuing the girl, saying he wants to stay with her. This time around I’m not asking for another chance, but I’m the one pursuing him,” she told Essence Magazine. “The song is really about sticking by someone, loving someone through it all.”

Fresh off his stint as the opening act for Beyoncè’s “Back to Business” concerts, Luke James drops a steamy new video for “Mo’ Better Blues.” James released the sultry cut in April to build anticipation for his debut album, due later this year via Island Def Jam Music Group. If you haven’t already, download his pre-album, #LUKE.
If there is one artist to watch in 2012, it’s Luke James. In my mind, he exemplifies everything R&B needs from its male artists — combining the look with the talent to create great music. I expect great things from this man in the near future.
Robin Thicke pays homage to the late Whitney Houston in the black-and-white music video for “Exhale (Shoop Shoop),” his cover of the her 1995 hit single from the Waiting to Exhale soundtrack.
Class is in session. Tank is schooling you on how to treat a lady in the video for “Compliments,” the T.I. and Kris Stephens assisted lead single from his latest album This Is How I Feel. With a hazy warehouse as the backdrop, The General and his sexy protegé set the mood while T.I. comes through with his killer verse to complete the laid back clip.
This Is How I Feel is Tank’s fifth album, and easily ranks as one of my favorites from the singer. Whether it’s his solo work or work with other artists, he continues to be the most consistent male artist in R&B. If don’t have his latest album, get it here.
