NEW MUSIC: L.O.S featuring BANKY W & SARKODIE - "BAD GUY P (REMIX)" [OFFICIAL VERSION]




In what could undoubtedly be described as the biggest remix of 2013 thus far, Hip-Hop/R&B super group L.O.S have called upon Mr. Capable himself, E.M.E boss BANKY W and prolific Ghanaian Hip-Hop star SARKODIE for the massive new remix of their latest hit single “Bad Guy P”.

With the original single and accompanying music video receiving rave reviews and on constant heavy rotation on the likes of Beat FM, Rhythm FM and Soundcity among several of your favourite radio and TV stations across Nigeria last year, L.O.S have taken things up a good few notches in only the first month of 2013, with the release of “Bad Guy P - The Remix”…

The resounding remix not only sees the 4-man group L.O.S in sublime form yet again but also finds Banky W impressing with a braggadocios rap verse of his own and highlights Sarkodie as we have come to expect in all of his quick-fire rap glory, over this enthralling Hip-Hop musical milieu produced by L.O.S’ very own YungKillingWtf.

RIHANNA TALKS CHRIS BROWN ~ HE DOESN'T HAVE THE LUXURY OF F*CKING UP AGAIN

Grammy-winning singer Rihanna is not holding back and unloads on her romantic reunion with Chris Brown in the new issue of Rolling Stone.


Based on some excerpts, RiRi confirms the hype is real and she is once again Chris Breezy's wifey.
Rihanna has opened up like never before about getting back together with her ex-boyfriend, Chris Brown, and what it means for her public image. "I decided it was more important for me to be happy," she tells contributing editor Josh Eells in the new issue of Rolling Stone, out Friday, January 31st. "I wasn't going to let anybody's opinion get in the way of that. Even if it's a mistake, it's my mistake. After being tormented for so many years, being angry and dark, I'd rather just live my truth and take the backlash. I can handle it." (Rolling Stone)

RiRi also says she is not giving Brown any more second chances, vowing to leave him if he shows any signs of his past self.
"When you add up the pieces from the outside, it's not the cutest puzzle in the world," Rihanna says. "You see us walking somewhere, driving somewhere, in the studio, in the club, and you think you know. But it's different now. We don't have those types of arguments anymore. We talk about sh*t. We value each other. We know exactly what we have now, and we don't want to lose that." And Rihanna says that if Brown were ever to display a hint of his past behavior towards her, she is ready to walk. "He doesn't have the luxury of f*cking up again," she says. "That's just not an option. I can't say that nothing else will ever go wrong. But I'm pretty solid in the knowing that he's disgusted by that. And I wouldn't have gone this far if I ever thought that was a possibility." 

In RiRi's new Complex cover feature, she plainly disregards questions related to her personal relationship with Breezy.

Before leaving the restaurant for the airport, Rihanna addresses one last question. It's the biggest question surrounding the song: If her relationship with Brown is truly nobody's business, then why make a record about it? Her voice, usually warm and cut with chuckles, turns cold. "Pardon me?" she replies, her eyebrow slightly raised. Even after the question is repeated, she hesitates to answer. The hands that moved up and down throughout the conversation, suddenly fall flat. "It's the truth. Remember?" she says, turning toward the other side of the table to gather her belongings. As she gets up to leave, she adds: "It's a fun record that The-Dream wrote and we loved the lyrics. You're still asking me questions about it so clearly you don't know." Maybe she doesn't know either.

The couple have also reunited in the studio for some new tunes.
Rihanna and Chris Brown are, once again, making beautiful music together. On the heels of their recent collaboration, "Nobodies Business," a rep for Breezy tells E! News that the two are indeed currently working on another single. Which certainly explains why the duo was spotted leaving, albeit separately, from a recording studio in West Hollywood on Thursday night. This will be the fourth collaboration of sorts for Rihanna and Brown. (E! Online)

JAY-Z SIGNS TIMBALAND TO ROC NATION


Timbaland is the latest artist to join Jay-Z's Roc Nation imprint.

Jay-Z has officially announced the signing of Timbaland to his Roc Nation label.

The Brooklyn, New York rapper broke the news on his Life+Times website, posting a picture of the two talking in the studio. "Roc Nation welcomes TIMBALAND to the family," reads the caption.

The pair has worked together throughout their respective careers. In 1998, Timbo produced Jay's hit "Nigga What, Nigga Who," while he returned the favor for the following year's "Lobster & Scrimp." Collaborative hits also include "Big Pimpin," "Dirt Off Your Shoulder" and "Off That" featuring Drake. Most recently, the Virginia native produced Justin Timberlake's new single "Suit & Tie" featuring Jay-Z, and he expressed interest in recording a full-length LP with Hov.

Most recently, Roc Nation signed M.I.A., Meek Mill, Elijah Blake and Jahlil Beats to subsets of the company including the label and management.

RICK ROSS 911 CALL LEAKS

Maybach Music Group leader Rick Ross continues to make hourly headlines as audio from an eyewitness near Monday's Fort Lauderdale shooting has surfaced online.


On the recording, a female details what exactly took place moments after gunfire went off.
The call was made early Monday morning from a restaurant in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida ... while the rapper was trying to speed away from the shooter in his Rolls-Royce. A woman inside of a nearby restaurant called 911 in a panic and reported, "I just heard a bunch of gunshots go off ... and a car sped by." The caller then interrupted the operator and said, "Oh my god, they're turning around and coming back ... I'm hanging up." When the operator tried to ask more questions about the situation -- the caller shot back, "They're coming back ... I'm hiding." The caller then hangs up the phone. Ross eventually crashed his car into a nearby apartment building. So far, the cops have not made any arrests in the case.
New reports claim Ricky Rozay has already hired 24-hour security.

After narrowly escaping bullets from a drive-by shooting in Ft. Lauderdale, the rapper has hired armed personal bodyguards to protect him 24/7! Rick Ross was the target of a drive-by shooting outside Miami on Jan. 28, and he ended up crashing his Rolls-Royce to escape the gunfire. Even though the shooter has not been identified, the rapper had been threatened by a street ganga called Gangsta Disciples for weeks before the dangerous attack. As a hip-hop artist, Rick had armed security for big events such as concerts and public appearances, but in the wake of the drive-by shooting, he has decided to have armed bodyguards 24/7. (Hollywood Life)

G.O.O.D Music's Pusha T has updated fans on Ross' current condition.
"I don't wanna hear about that with anybody. I definitely hit him up like, 'Yo just let me know you're okay,' " Push told MTV news on Tuesday (January 29). "He was just like, 'Yeah he's just layin' back.' That was enough for me. ... It's tough out here as an artist and being in rap it's like this is the only profession where you don't really leave your core. You don't really leave your upbringing. You don't really leave that behind; you stay in it lyrically and so on and so forth. So it's like you can't really get out of it, you can't really get away from it. I don't care how much money you have." (MTV)

Prior to the latest reports, G-Unit's 50 Cent suggested Ross may have staged the entire shooting.

"Hahaha fat boy hit the building?lol it looks staged to me. No hole's in da car http://instagr.am/p/VCHWuPML2G/," Fif tweeted January 28th.

"hahaha that boy was spooked. I ride like OBAMA level 6 built proof, bomb proof,you already know. #SMSaudio" (50 Cent's Twitter)

RICK ROSS DRIVE-BY SHOOTING WAS STAGED ~ 50 CENT

G-Unit's 50 Cent is showing no sympathy toward rap rival Rick Ross in light of his near-death experience in Florida today, publicly taunting the Maybach Music Group leader.


Fif jumped onto his Twitter page and even suggested Ross' Fort Lauderdale crash may have been staged.
"Hahaha fat boy hit the building?lol it looks staged to me. No hole's in da car http://instagr.am/p/VCHWuPML2G/," Fif tweeted January 28th. (50 Cent's Twitter)

Confirmation on Ross' identity and who he rode alongside with surfaced hours after the crash.
8:45 AM  -- Cops have now confirmed Ross was driving the Rolls-Royce at the time of the crash. The passenger was Shateria L. Moragne-el -- who is reportedly dating the rapper. Cops say neither party suffered any injuries. The suspects fled from the scene before cops arrived on scene.

Details of the messy incident heated up the Internet Monday morning.

NEW MUSIC: Pusha T - Only You Can Tell It ft. Wale (Wrath Of Caine)



Pusha T will drop his new mixtape, Wrath of Caine, on Jan. 28. For now, here's "Only You Can Tell It," a collaboration with fellow DMV native Wale. Pusha has said that this is one of his favorite tracks on the tape.

There's a great story behind the beat. It's from a special stash the GOOD Music rapper calls "a 'Ye batch," but he's not sure who made it. "I begged for this one," Pusha told Miss Info last week. "I asked repeatedly, he told me 'no' like five times." Pusha eventually caught Kanye when he was busy and distracted and 'Ye reluctantly gave his nod.

RICK ROSS TARGETED IN DRIVE-BY SHOOTING


In South Florida this morning, Rick Ross reportedly escaped gunfire from a shooter in another car. During the escape, the rapper crashed his Rolls Royce.

Rick Ross lost control of his Rolls Royce after the star rapper was reportedly attacked by gunfire early this morning (January 28). Sources, report that the Maybach Music Group leader was attacked on Fort Lauderdale, Florida's Los Olas Boulevard, near 15th Avenue, when another vehicle pulled alongside his luxury automobile before shooting. Early reports indicate that neither Ross nor his female passenger were struck by the gunfire, but that over a dozen rounds were fired by the assailant.

While accelerating away from the shooters, Ross, who is believed to have been driving, crashed his Rolls Royce Phantom into a building.

Local10 acquired a photograph of the wrecked car. The Fort Lauderdale station also reported that a witness claimed that Ross looked "shaken up" following the crash.

At present, no arrests have been made or suspects have been named.

HipHop has reached out to representatives for Rick Ross and has not heard back as of press time

KANYE WEST UNLEASHES SINGLE WORDS ON TWITTER RETURN

Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West appears to have a teaser in store for his 9.1 million Twitter followers, making a brief comeback to the addictive social networking service heading into the weekend.


Rather than go on an emotional tantrum, Yeezy unloaded a handful of descriptive words in his first and only tweets since January 7th.

"Truth," he tweeted Friday (January 25).

"Beauty"

"Minimalism"

"Emotion"

"Soul"

"Awesomeness"

"Functionality" (Kanye West's Twitter)

His most notable return in recent memory dates back to last October when he reflected on the anniversary of late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs.

"WE LOST STEVE A YEAR AGO TODAY...," he tweeted October 5th.

"HE IS ONE OF THE MOST INSPIRING AND INFLUENTIAL HUMAN BEINGS OF OUR EXISTENCE ALONG WITH MICHAEL JACKSON, WALT DISNEY, AND DR. KING."

"LET'S BE THANKFUL FOR HIS LIFE AND RESPECT HIS LEGACY BY NEVER COMPROMISING ON OUR FUTURE." (Kanye West's Twitter)

Much like his page appears these days, Ye made headlines last year for deleting all of his Twitter remarks.
Kanye West, who has used Twitter for voicing his opinions through epic rants in the past, has deleted all of his tweets. However, he did leave one tweet that says, "Be back soon." It's also interesting to note that he is only following his girlfriend Kim Kardashian. Whether this move is part of his campaign to silence himself from the media or just something else entirely, his eight million-plus followers will just have to wait until he returns.

VIDEO: Kate Upton Washes the All-New Mercedes-Benz CLA in Slow Motion



A Mercedes-Benz commercial spotlighting model Kate Upton is too sexy, the Parents Television Council said.

The commercial features the "Sports Illustrated" swimsuit model wearing cutoff shorts and a cleavage-revealing, skin-tight tank top in slow motion as she prepares to wash the 2014 Mercedes CLA-Class. In reality, she points out that a group of young football players "missed a spot" as they wash the vehicle.

"This ad [reinforces] for millions of wives, daughters and sisters across the country that you use your sex appeal to get what you want," a spokesperson for the Parents Television Council told the Daily Mail.

Other critics have taken to Mercedes' Facebook page to voice their complaints, The Hollywood Reporter reported Thursday.

"With all of these comments and publicity, the ad is CLEARLY effective!" one commenter said.

THE TOP 10 HIP HOP SONGS OF THE WEEK



It's been an exciting week for hip-hop: Fabolous broke his silence, Jay-Z dropped his first 16 of 2013, and Meek Mill is still yelling about something. These are the top 10 hip-hop songs of the week.

10. Fabolous - "Ready" (Ft. Chris Brown)
Fabolous breaks his silence with new single "Ready," alongside Chris Brown. "Ready" appears on Loso's upcoming album, Loso's Way 2: Rise to Power, his first studio album since 2009's Loso's Way.

9. Justin Timberlake - "Suit & Tie" (Ft. Jay-Z)
Last time we heard from Justin Timberlake he was trying to bring sexy back. Six years later, he's bringing back something else: 70s soul (not that it ever left, mind you). "Suit & Tie" is a slinky tune that winks and nods to the likes of the Delfonics or a sedated Marvin Gaye. JT vows to "show you something" in his patented falsetto. Jigga, simply happy to glide along, uses his guest spot to flex and salute his in-laws: "Tell your mother that I love her cause I love you/Tell your father we go farther as a couple/They ain't lose a daughter, got a son."

8. Pusha T - "Millions" (Ft. Rick Ross)
"Millions" pairs Pusha T with MMG boss Rick Ross. That hardbody beat sounds familiar, as do their subject matter—drug game, fly chicks, etc.— but the execution makes it a solid listen. You can find "Millions" on Pusha T's Wrath of Caine mixtape.

7. Raekwon - "New Day" (Ft. Freddie Gibbs)
Easily the highlight from Raekwon the Chef's undercooked Lost Jewlry.

6. Rockie Fresh - "The Future"
MMG rookie Rocky Fresh has a thing for Back to the Future. Last year, he released a song and music video inspired by the film series. His new single, "The Future," continues that theme, movie samples and all. "Driving a DeLorean/Feelings of being born again," he raps. The autotuned anthem appears on Rockie's mixtape, The Electric Highway.
Tweetable: "I'd rather listen to Taylor Swift than most of you ni--as."

5. Blu, R.A. The Rugged Man, Tristate - "Thelonius King"
Blu enlists R.A. The Rugged Man and Tristate (Durag Dynasty) for "Thelonius King," a rugged track with an air of confidence, tracked by Bombay.

4. Meek Mill - "From Da Bottom" (Ft. Gourdon)
Just two months removed from his debut, Dreams & Nightmares, Meek Mill is already back on the saddle. Next up is: a third Dreamchasers mixtape, with "From Da Bottom" leading off the campaign. Meek has been wrapped up in a battle with fellow Philly rapper Cassidy lately. He doesn't address that here, but he does address a host of unnamed haters.

3. THURZ - "Acura Legend"
Acura Legend was the only car I ever wanted as a snotty-nosed lad. So Thurz had me from the title alone. Then, the track kicks in and it's all gritty drum shivers doing donuts around grimy synths and hi-hats, while Thurz drapes braggart rhymes over the mix, and I'm six all over again.

2. Ill Bill - "Truth"
Ill Bill's upcoming album, The Grimy Awards, features a who's who of lineup of sound architects. Among them, Pete Rock who produced this super soulful number dubbed "Truth." The Grimy Awards, out February 26, also features DJ Premier, El-P, DJ Muggs, and Large Professor.

1. Joey Bada$$ - "Unorthodox"
Joey's vintage rap aesthetics sparked an intense bidding war last year. The 17-year-old picks up where he left off, teaming up with the iconic DJ Premier on "Unorthodox." The single art bears a tribute to late Pro Era member Capital STEEZ, who allegedly committed suicide last December. Nice touch.

MY DAD WOULD'VE EMBRACED SNOOP LION ~ ROHAN MARLEY


Rohan Marley responds to the Rastafari movement's backlash against Snoop Lion.

Rohan Marley has responded to the backlash against Snoop Lion for joining the Rastafari movement.

Bunny Wailer, Rasta practitioner and original member of Bob Marley & the Wailers, initially criticized the rapper for exploiting the movement for personal gain. Now, Marley's son has come to Snoop's defense, telling TMZ that his father would have "embraced" him instead of publicly airing him out.

"Our father's name should not even be mentioned in this issue because like a true Rasta, he would have embraced Snoop's reincarnation and welcomed the positivity," he said. "Why condemn a man for his love of Rastafari and Bob Marley? We have been cool with Snoop before his transformation and he will continue to have our blessings and support."

Wailer publicly denounced Snoop after seeing his film Reincarnated, which documents his conversion to become a Rasta. "[His conversion is] outright fraudulent use of [the] Rastafari Community's personalities and symbolism," he said. "[Snoop has failed to meet the] contractual, moral and verbal commitments [of the Rastafarian religion]."

Last July, Snoop announced his official name change from Snoop Dogg to Snoop Lion. He said "It's not Snoop Dogg on a Reggae track. I want to bury Snoop Dogg and become Snoop Lion. But I didn't know that until I went to the temple. The high priest, when I walked in, he asked what is my name. I said, 'Snoop Dogg.' He said, 'No more...You are the light. You are the Lion.' From that moment on, I had started to understand why I was there. We hadn't even recorded one song, but I was taking all of this information and spirit."

NEW MUSIC: WANDE COAL -- THE KICK FEAT. DON.JAZZY


the-kick-2


Award-winning singer Wande Coal of Mavin Records has delighted fans by releasing a brand new single ‘The Kick’ on 23 January 2013.

Wande Ojosipe, also known as Wande Coal, is known for his improvisational skill and unique dance moves. His inimitable vocal style and dexterity has endeared him to thousands of music lovers and fans nationwide and earned him critical and commercial success. He started gaining national attention after being featured on D’banj’sRundown/Funk You Upalbum on singles like“Loke,”“Tonosibe” and “Why Me.”

Wande became a household name with his prominent vocals on the Mo’Hits All Star’s compilation album Curriculum Vitae. His first single from the album ‘Ololufe’ was described as the greatest love song written by a Nigerian. Demand for a solo album grew and Wande duly obliged with 2008’s hugely successful Mushin 2 MoHits. The album broke several records by racing to sell over 3 million copies with 3 singles that shot straight to Number 1 on the charts.

In early May 2012, when Don Jazzy announced a new record label, Mavin Records, Wande Coal became part of the first wave of artists signed to the label including D’Prince, Dr SID and Tiwa Savage. His musical prowess was noticeable in the first singles released in the Solar Plexus album – Wande Coal has three singles featured in the Solar Plexus album, which was released in May 2012, “Forever,” “See me Ri,” and “Pretty Girls.”

The new single “The Kick”, produced by and featuring the award-winning ace producer Don Jazzy, is one of the songs in Wande Coal’s forthcoming album, and takes off from the success of his other singles.

TECH NEWS: WHY SAMSUNG GALAXY S3?

2012 was the quite the year for technology, especially went it came to the battle of the phones. The Samsang Galaxy S III put up quite a fight against Apple's iPhone, but even after losing a lawsuit, the billion-dollar company still came out on top. People across the world were asked, Galaxy S III or iPhone5? And while many iPhone users may have seemed brand loyal at the time, the S III found its way to the top outselling the Apple product in multiple countries. So if you're "that guy" that's still stuck on the iPhone, check out what five things Samsung has to change your mind.


1. All Share Play Group Cast
[What this feature] allows you to do is--in real time--share a PDF, a presentation or a bunch of pictures with a bunch of people sitting around with the same phone. So basically, if you ever walk into a meeting and don't have the projector or something like that, now you can share instantly through phones. [People] can all slide back and forth across the pictures in real time.

2. S Beam
If you've ever shot a video on your phone and you're wondering how to get it to somebody [because] you can't email it, it's too big, you can't post it...and you're wondering what you do. With S Beam, just by touching the too phones back-to-back you can transfer large files, music, photos, videos [and] all of that stuff just by touching [them together].

3. Pop-Up Play
This is video, picture and picture. Just like on your TV, you can watch a video while doing other stuff on your phone. You can minimize a window, move it around the screen, text, email and surf the web all while doing that stuff.

4. Smart Stay
If it's working properly, nothing happens. Say if you're reading an article or surfing the Web or reading a book or something--if you're looking at it too long, you're device will time out and go dark--but Smart Stay is smart enough to know if you're watching the screen. It keeps the light on so you don't have to worry about touching it or turning the light back on.

5. Share Shot
If you and five of your friends go to a sports event or a party, and everybody's like, Send me the pictures! Nobody ever sends the pictures. So what you can actually do is link your six phones together, and as you're taking a photo they're showing up in your friends' galleries. As long as you guys are around the same place, [pictures] will share automatically across the phones.
You Decide. Will you cop the new Samsung Galaxy S III instead of the iPhone5?

2CHAINZ TO GUEST STAR ON "TWO BROKE GIRLS"

Atlanta rapper 2 Chainz's Cinderella story turns another page as the hip-hop artist formerly known as "Tity Boi" has landed a spot on an upcoming episode of CBS's "2 Broke Girls."

2 Chainz will hit the small screen on the night after the Grammy Awards.

2 Chainz has been tapped to appear as a special guest on CBS' comedy series 2 Broke Girls.

According to THR, Tity Boi is scheduled to make a cameo as himself on February 11th, which is the day after the Grammy Awards.

On the episode, Max (played by Kat Dennings) meets a record label employee who falls for her and offers to fly her and Caroline (Beth Behrs) to Los Angeles, California for the Grammys on a private plane. The "No Lie" rapper will appear as the last passenger waiting to board the plane.

2 Chainz, who released his debut Based on a T.R.U. Story last year, was recently honored with the Street Soldier Award at the Hip Hop Inaugural Ball.

"SPARTACUS 'WAR OF THE DAMNED'" PROMISES TO BE AN EPIC SERIES CONCLUSION

The Starz series comes to a close, but could Caesar get a spinoff?

The legend of Spartacus, the warrior-slave who led a bloody but doomed rebellion against the Roman Republic, took root in history 2,000 years ago. Starz ends its contribution to the legacy this year with the final season of its original series about the gladiator who became a formidable rebel leader.

Initially, series creator Steven DeKnight had hoped the series would run five to seven seasons. He now says ending with Season 3, War of the Damned (premiering Friday), is the best possible outcome. He's also grateful the show didn't end with the death of Andy Whitfield, the Australian actor who starred as Spartacus in 2010's Season 1, Blood and Sand, before leaving the series with non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

"Ending it is bittersweet," says DeKnight, "but I'm happy that we continued because we had the chance to tell the whole story. And it was very important to Andy that the story should be told. He really loved the show and wanted it to go on."

When Whitfield was diagnosed, Season 2 was postponed and production shifted to a prequel, Gods of the Arena, in order to give Whitfield time to recover. But that never happened; he died in 2011. Liam McIntyre was chosen to assume the role of Spartacus in Vengeance, Season 2, which aired last year.

DeKnight says wrapping up now will prevent the show from becoming repetitive or veering too far from the historical record. "In War of the Damned we probably stray about as far from history as we have in past seasons," DeKnight says. "Most of it is based on things that actually happened, but to get it all to work in a dramatic way through 10 episodes we had to shuffle a lot of events."

Season 3 picks up months after Vengeance (which drew about 1.5 million viewers for premiere episodes) ends. Spartacus' army numbers tens of thousands. Vengeance closed with the death of Gaius Claudius Glaber, one of Spartacus' most formidable enemies, and the rebels continue to beat the Romans on every bloody battlefield. With Rome determined to break the rebellion, all-out war is declared.

Despite the spectacular battle scenes, the major story line throughout Spartacus has centered on the evolution of its hero, says McIntyre. "Andy (in Blood and Sand) was the reluctant slave trying to lash out against the horrible things done to him," McIntyre says. "Vengeance was about him finding his new place in the world, the responsibility given to him."

Now, McIntyre says. "He's absolutely the commander-in-chief of this ragtag band of thousands, this army that's trying to do the impossible and take over and destroy the undefeatable armies of Rome."

To rout Spartacus, Roman general Marcus Crassus will join forces with the man whose name is synonymous with ancient Rome: Julius Caesar.

DeKnight asked the show's historical consultants how much the show would be breaking with history by weaving Caesar into the plot. "I was shocked when they said not at all," DeKnight says. "Caesar is the most written-about Roman, but this is one tiny sliver of history where not a lot is known about what he's doing. Lots of historians think he more than likely had some part in the war against Spartacus."

Chosen to play the 20-something Caesar is Australian actor Todd Lasance, who says he enjoyed bringing the young emperor-to-be to life. "That's the exciting part," Lasance says. "There are not going to be any comparisons, and I get to delve into a Caesar who hasn't been explored before on screen. It's a chance to set a new benchmark, I would hope, in portraying him in a period in which a lot of people don't really know about Caesar."

Lasance says that before researching Caesar, he had no idea what he was like as a young man. "I guess, naively, I had the idea that he would be in a toga, have the typical Caesar haircut and have the leaves around his head, but this Caesar couldn't be any further from that. I like the fact that the writers made him a lot more rugged, and they focused on the battlefield elements."

Starz won't officially comment, but deadline.com and other outlets have reported the network is considering a spinoff following the story of Caesar. It's a series Lasance says he'd consider, and one that DeKnight and McIntyre would love to watch. "I know there's the rumor, and I don't know anything officially, but I hope that happens," says McIntyre. "Todd's got this sort of Brad Pitt thing about him, and I'd watch any show with him in it."

But first, fans must bid farewell to Spartacus. "If you do your Wikipedia research, you know it's not the happiest ending," says McIntyre, who promises a finale of epic proportions.

"I got to see a rough cut of it. It was heartbreaking, and Steven and his team do a really good job of keeping you guessing. You never quite know, as Steven says, if it's going to go all Inglourious Basterds and kill Hitler. It's a very heart-rending story, but its also uplifting," McIntyre says. "I think they really found the right tone and went out in a huge way."

“No Iyanya please!” Tinsel’s Uru Eke answers ‘Ebuka’s 10 Questions’ on Rubbin' Minds Live




On the last episode of Rubbin’ Minds on Channels Television (21 January, 2013) host Ebuka Obi-Uchendu discussed the African Cup of Nations and The Future Awards National Enterprise Conference holding this Saturday, January 26.

But perhaps the highlight of the show was the interview with the next big thing on Nigeria’s acting scene – Tinsel’s Uru Eke. She has also been in Dark Side alongside leading man, Joseph Benjamin and Amina alongside Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde and others.

The actress who moved from the United States late last year spoke honestly about her career, the Nollywood tradition and then was refreshingly candid in answering the trivia!

Do you wish you were sometimes Tonto Dikeh?
No (Laughter).  I can’t deal with that much drama.

You’ve heard about the Tonto-Iyanya-Yvonne Nelson love drama. Would you fight for Iyanya?
Oh, no way. Because he is not my ‘spec’ (laughter).


Who is a better actress - Rita Dominic, Genevieve Nnaji or Nse Ikpe-Etim?
(Long laughter) No you can’t do that to me. None of the above… oh, sorry I mean all of the above. All of the above please!

Who will you take home: Dbanj, Jim Iyke, Iyanya or me?
You, of course. You should know that already. We are both Okija now!

Amala or Ugba?
Ugba definitely. But I can't make it. I didn't go with my mum into the kitchen when she was making it.

Which actor won't you be caught dead with?
Babasuwe. I feel he will make me look like an idiot!

What is your state of mind right now?
That you don't ask me another question I can't answer.

Did you see the recent Channels documentary on the Ikeja police college? What are your thoughts?
Sad. I felt ashamed. So ashamed. I could go on…

If you had to be born again, what country will it be?
America. I love the United States. I love the country. The spirit. The vibe. I'll be moving there at some point.

What other talent do you have, singing?

None. Maybe dancing. Yes, I'd like to dance for Psquare. That would be fun!

Rubbin’ Minds is a production of Y! TV and shows every Sunday at 3pm on Channels Television. For more information, visit @YNaijaTV on Twitter or www.ynaija.com/tv. The show’s hashtag is #RubbinMinds

KRIS HUMPHRIES SLAMMED BY NY KNICKS STAR

Brooklyn Nets player Kris Humphries continues to fall victim to Kanye West/Kim Kardashian jokes, notably last night at the hands of local New York Knicks rival player JR Smith.


Boasting over a three-point win, Humphries put himself in a vulnerable position following Monday afternoon's game with a simple tweet.

Things are going well for the Brooklyn Nets lately, winning 10 of 12 games since P.J. Carlesimo took over as head coach, including Monday night's win over the rival Knicks at Madison Square Garden. However, the same can't be said for Nets big man Kris Humphries. The 27-year-old has spent the last two seasons enduring ruthless taunts regarding his failed 72-day marriage in 2011 with socialite Kim Kardashian and recently, the news that she's pregnant with Kanye West's child. But he's not just getting grief from fans. After Monday's win, Humphries tweeted: "Big game tonight! The Garden got really quiet on the way out! #Brooklyn" (USA Today)

Smith immediately followed Humphries' comment by taunting him about his separated wife Kim Kardashian and her current boyfriend Kanye West's relationship.
Knicks shooting guard J.R. Smith, a frequent tweeter and excellent trash-talker, didn't let Humphries get the last word, and tweeted back: "Wasnt quiet when Kanye tore it down last month!" Rapper Kanye West recently announced that he's having a baby with Kardashian. In Twitter terms, that's a slam dunk.

Recently, reports of Kris getting taunted around the local New York City party scene surfaced.
Deejays seem to love torturing the Net forward with the vocal stylings of his ex-wife's new beau. Humphries' anguish was apparent Wednesday night at WIP, when he arrived to let off steam after a tough loss to the Knicks, but was left fuming after consecutive West songs blared in his ears. "He was trying to talk to every girl in there and was getting turned down by every girl he spoke to," an eyewitness tells Confidenti@l's Marianne Garvey.

According to reports, he will not sign any divorce papers until Kim K admits their marriage was bogus.

CONSEQUENCE ADMITS KIM K CHEATED ON REGGIE BUSH WITH KANYE WEST

Estranged G.O.O.D. Music affiliate Consequence and girlfriend Jen the Pen have spilled the beans on Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's secret love affair from a few years back and how they kept silent on the steamy hook-up.


According to Jen the Pen, they kept their lips sealed despite knowing Kim was cheating on ex-boyfriend/NFL player Reggie Bush with Yeezy.
"Cons did nothing to him. Nothing. I'm telling you, I hear this man's every single conversation -- I know every single thing that has ever happened, and I could say on my son, he never did anything to Kanye for Kanye not to give a congratulations [for our newborn baby], to him or to me, for that matter. ... When he 'was' sticking Kim, when he 'was' sticking Kim, when Kim was with Reggie, you know whose secret that was? That was our secret, when the rest of the world didn't know. No one blew up his spot. He had his back. Every night that man called, 'What do I do? What do I do, you know, about Kim? I need to be with her, I want to be with her,' this, that and the third. That secret was in 'my' home." ("The Breakfast Club")

Cons confirmed Jen's comments and said he even provided transportation for West to meet up with Kim at hotels.
"I was driving him to the telly," Cons said when asked if Kanye was having an affair with Kim during her hook-up with Bush. "And that's why I flipped [because he didn't send a congratulations for my newborn]. I didn't even want no bread, my thing was -- [DJ] Envy, that's like, [DJ] Clue knowing you're having a baby and y'all have a discrepancy and honestly, he owe 'you' money. First off, he doesn't want to give you your bread. ...." 

Back in early 2012, Kanye's ex-girlfriend Amber Rose claimed he cheated on her with Kim during the Bush days.
"I don't want to get into details on how I know but I still stick by my words, you know what I mean," she said in an interview. "The story is very much true. I just feel like I'm all about women empowerment and I feel like I stooped down to her level by calling her a name. I didn't have to call her a home-wrecker. I don't believe, I know [she slept with Kanye]. I really don't want to get into details about it, there's a whole 'nother story -- I forgive, I forget, and I'm just done with that whole situation. She definitely didn't deny it because she can't because that's not the truth. I know what the truth is, she knows what the truth is, Reggie [Bush] knows what the truth is and so does Kanye. ... I have solid proof, I just don't want to take it there. If her fans want to believe her and if my fans want to believe me and you guys want to believe whoever, then that's fine, I'm not trying to take it to the next level because I could really embarrass her and prove everybody wrong and I'm not about doing that."

Leading up to those comments, Rose fully exposed KimYe's secret relationship.
"Kim is one of the main reasons why me and Kanye are not together," Amber exclusively told Star. "She's a homewrecker!" According to Amber, she was dating Kanye when he and Kim first hooked up -- and Kim was dating NFL star Reggie Bush! "They were both cheating," Amber, 28, said. "They were both cheating on me and Reggie with each other." Amber says it was Kim, 31, who instigated the whole affair by calling, texting and sending racy photos of herself to Kanye. "She was sending pictures, and I was like, 'Kim, just stop. Don't be that person,'" but apparently Kim didn't care enough to respond when Amber emailed her for an explanation. "I thought at least she'd be woman enough to respond to me. She never responded." Amber slammed Kim for her cheating ways. "It's very important that us women stick together and we don't f**k each other over like that."


COPS SWARM CHRIS BROWN'S HOLLYWOOD HOME


R&B singer Chris Brown has fallen victim to the latest series of local Hollywood pranks involving cops getting called to criminal activity in the area only to find out nothing is wrong.

According to reports, Chris Breezy's crib got surrounded by police Monday (January 21).
Cops raced to Chris Brown's Hollywood Hills home Monday afternoon ... after someone called 911 and reported a domestic incident involving a gun, but we're told it was all a prank. Law enforcement sources said ... the caller claimed a mother and father were in a fight and the father went to another room in the house to get a gun. At that point the caller hung up, never mentioning it was Chris Brown's house. When cops arrived there was no evidence of a gunman or for that matter any dispute. (TMZ)

The mega R&B star, fortunately, was not home when this all went down.
Chris was NOT home at the time. This is the latest in a string of swatting incidents involving celebs, the most recent being last Friday when someone falsely reported a man with a gun in the home of Kris and Bruce Jenner. LAPD law enforcement sources tell us ... they are determined to catch the culprits ... and STAT. 

Other high-profile celebrities have also fallen victim to the prank including Hollywood mogul Tom Cruise.
It's the latest so-called "swatting" prank targeting celebrities. The practice is intended to get multiple officers, including specialized SWAT teams sent to a home. Last week, Beverly Hills police responded to a fake armed robbery call at Tom Cruise's house. Other hoax calls have been made involving the homes of Justin Bieber, Ashton Kutcher and Miley Cyrus. (ABC News)

Outside of pranks, Brown is reportedly working on a new record with R&B diva Rihanna.

FABOLOUS SAYS 'WEEZY PROBABLY' STILL DOESN'T LIKE HIM, DROPS "SO NY" VIDEO


Brooklyn rapper Fabolous has finally put a visual together for last year's "So NY" anthem with a vivid music video for the Just Blaze-produced track.

After dropping last September, Loso's new video arrived today (January 22) to heat up the winter.
New York City's own, Fabolous, returns to the game today with a dope new video for his track "So NY". The track was produced by Just Blaze and finds Fab putting on for his hometown in lyrical form. The video for "So NY" plays out like an urban commercial trying to draw folks to visit from out of town. As it starts out we get a beautiful view of the city before hitting the streets to see what life is like in the Big Apple. Fab hits the track running and gives us a history lesson while showing off the streets that raised him. (Stupid Dope)
On the record, Fab playfully name-drops Lil Wayne for taking a jab at his hometown last summer.
"I'm so New York, Weezy probably don't like me, I'm so New York, Weezy probably don't like me," Fab raps. "For my city, emphasis on my city/You gotta go to LA if you looking for Diddy/You gotta check CT if you looking for Fiddy/N*ggas in Paris, but what about the city/I'm so NY like the folks who make Playstation/Hope y'all enjoyed your summer vacation..." ("So NY")

Back in August, Weezy F. Baby ruffled some feathers when he revealed his dislike for the Big Apple.
Lil Wayne has never been shy about expressing his disdain for New York, but that didn't stop Tunechi from rolling through the Roseland Ballroom to rock the stage with Nicki Minaj. "Flat out: I don't like New York," Weezy told MTV News on Monday night while in Las Vegas to introduce his new line of sneakers with Supra. Wayne's distaste for the Big Apple performances is understandable, considering it was his 2007 gun arrest after a NYC show that led to his 2010 incarceration. "You're not supposed to leave it at, 'Everything happens for a reason,' " Wayne said of how the failed Summer Jam set turned into a blessing in disguise. "I believe everything happens for a reason and then you make the most of that reason. I think we made the most of it last week." (MTV)
Recently, Fab talked about wanting to put on for his city and fill any void rap mogul Jay-Z has left.

"DETOX" IS LIKE JESUS COMING ~ GAME

West Coast rapper Game recently talked about former Aftermath boss Dr. Dre's elusive Detox solo album release date and why he is not holding out on the LP hitting store shelves anytime soon.


In Game's perspective, Dre's delayed album could easily be shelved for good.
"Detox, it's like Jesus," says Game. "Will you ever get to see Jesus? It's like a hip-hop Jesus." In 2011, Dr. Dre released two cuts off the elusive album -- "Kush" and "I Need a Doctor." Things were looking up for fans, who had been paitently waiting for a follow-up to Dre's 2001, which was released in 1999. But, then, it was crickets all over again. "Dre's a hard guy to please," adds Game, noting Dr. Dre's attention to detail and perfection. "If he doesn't become 100 percent happy, then we'll probably never end up hearing Detox. I'll say never." Game also notes that the success that came with Dr. Dre's headphone company Beats by Dre, also interferes with a new Dr. Dre album.

A couple years ago, the platinum-selling rapper promised he would appear on the project if it ever dropped.
"If there is a Detox, then Game is on it more than once. But if it never comes out, then nobody's on it," Game said in an interview. "Detox man, I don't know about Detox man. I've been thinking about detoxing lately, because I've been back on my workout grind and I've been thinking about detoxing. That's the only thing I can tell you about Detox." (KISS 107.5)

Over the fall, Aftermath protégé Kendrick Lamar took the blame for delaying Detox.
"Detox got pushed ot the back just because my album, Dre really found interest in my music [and] wanted me to go forward and push that immediately," Lamar said in an interview. "That's a great thing. I've heard the records on Detox, they're insane, and the opportunity to be on that is a privilege and an honor."

Back in 2011, former N.W.A. group member Ice Cube gave his spin on why the project has not come out.
Still to this day, there is no official word on 'Detox,' and Dre has even stated that he was taking a break from music to focus on other things in his life. Aside from music, Dr. Dre's Beats By Dre headphones have become a massive success, and it seems the super producer has focused most of his time and energy to that particular business venture. Fellow N.W.A. rapper Ice Cube recently addressed the issue of Dre's multiple delays on 'Detox' album, which coincides with the aforementioned statements about the Beats by Dre headphones. In a recent interview with Sway, Ice Cube stated, " "Honestly? Them headphones are selling, selling, selling. What would you rather sell somebody: $300 headphones, or a $10 tape?"
