Jadakiss Previews The Last Kiss for Billboard

The Last Kiss will be the debut for his deal with Roc-A-Fella and his third full length effort. The album will mark his first full LP since 2004 and is highly anticipated with his hit single “By My Side.” The Last Kiss will hit stores on March 10th. “Jadakiss made sure that his new songs like “Pain & Torture” hit hard with a strong bass as he declared himself “the author of slick talk.” “Something Else” featuring label mate Young Jeezy is a mass of tickled keys, horns and 808’s, while “Two-Step” featuring Pharrell Williams is clearly the female-aimed radio record. With breezy violins and The Neptunes’ signature thick electronic bass, Jadakiss leisurely rhymes that he’s “two-stepping with his gangster self.” Lil’ Wayne appears for “Death Wish” which, as one would expect, is filled with lyrics about how adversaries can ask for their own grisly end.”

Lindsay Lohan’s Girlfriend Sam Ronson Jealous Over Pharrell

DJ Samantha Ronson sees red when girlfriend Lindsay Lohan is around Pharrell, according to reports. While Ronson generally doesn’t get jealous of guys, but apparently she was quite unimpressed by lover Lindsay’s reaction to meeting Williams. According to reports, the ‘Mean Girls’ star told a magazine how the singer/super-producer would love to make a great record with her. However, Williams’ desire to take Lohan “out of all the elements,” is what created a problem for Samantha. “Sam is not usually jealous of guys but from the way Linds acts around Pharrell, it seems she thinks he could be competition, The Mirror quoted a source as saying.

N¤E¤R¤D Pull Off Auckland Performance


Due to Recording Commitments’, N¤E¤R¤D are unable to perform at Auckland’s Vector Arena on February 26. Hip-Hop act N¤E¤R¤D, comprising of rappers Pharrell Williams, Chad Hugo and Shay Haley, will not head up to Auckland for a live concert because they have canceled the planned show. The group were supposed to perform at Auckland’s Vector Arena on February 26 as part of an Australian Tour. Without further explanation, promoters Future Entertainment claim the cancellation happens “due to recording commitments.” There hasn’t been any statement from N¤E¤R¤D’s management team regarding the pulling-off though. Full ticket refunds for the New Zealand show are available at the point of purchase. “Smells Like A Big Usher Project If U Asking Me…”

Clipse First Single “‘Kinda Like A Big Deal” Due February 1st, Featuring Kanye West ?


The Clipse came back with a lyrical snow flurry recently on the mixtape Play Cloths Presents: Road To Till The Casket Drops. The brothers actually killed two birds with one stone, promoting their new clothing line (the Obama inauguration tees are dope) as well as pumping out energy in anticipation of their third LP, Till The Casket Drops. “We’re all consumed with the album,” Pusha T. told us via cell from Canada late last week. “It’s very close to being done. We’re just trying to piece these little pieces together. It’s the last 20 percent. I’m loving it. I’m feeling this is the make-or-break album for the Clipse. This is the album that’s gonna define us as far as showing we can stretch in both worlds as far as the underground and as far as the mainstream.” Two Sony Music executives who were instrumental in bringing the duo’s Re-Up Gang imprint over to the record company — Al Branch and Kyambo “Hip Hop” Joshua — were recently let go. Pusha said the label’s reshuffling shouldn’t hurt their project.

“It’s not gonna affect us. We’re too far done with the album,” Push explained. “The thing about us, it was never lack of music. Our problems have been an executing and marketing issue. I think we got a pretty good stronghold on it. I heard about the Hip Hop and Al Branch situation. I’m sure all of that is going to work itself out in our favor.” The remaining production on Till The Casket Drops is being kept under wraps, but the bulk of the album is pretty evenly distributed thus far. “I got a few from the Neptunes. I think the Neptunes have maybe four, three, somewhere in there. I got a few from [DJ] Khalil,” Push revealed. “Got a couple from Sean C. & LV. One from Swizz Beatz. Nottz! I got one from Nottz. The next few I don’t really wanna say, but I got a few more people committed to lacing this tail end of it.” We’ll hear the first single around February 1. “We have the record. It’s getting mixed,” Pusha said. “It’s already ready. That cake is baked. It’s called ‘Kinda Like a Big Deal.’ It’s about being kinda like a big deal. The collabo on there, the record in general, it’s kinda like a big deal.” When asked if the collaboration in question is with Kanye West, Pusha got tight-lipped: “Hey, man, it’s just one of them joints.”

Chester French “Dance” Not On “Love The Future”

According to Chester French, their tune Dance won’t be on “Love The Future, here is what they said on their Myspace site. “So some of you guys might’ve seen that a song of ours called ‘Dance’ started hitting the blogs and all else a week or so ago. We’re glad you guys are loving the song. But we have to clear this up… It’s not a leaked track from ‘Love The Future’ (our debut LP,coming out this year). It’s actually one of the cuts off of our independently released EPChester French’s First Love”, which we recorded and released FIVE years ago! Back when we were a five piece, not a duo. So it’s crazy/awesome/funny/wild that it’s making the rounds right now. And one of our absolute favorite radio stations, Milwaukee’s 88nine, is featuring the track on their website’s reoccuring segment, ‘Are You Feeling This”. Go & Vote For Chester Now!
