In a recent interview with Sneeze Magazine, Pusha T says that he passed on the "N*ggas In Paris" beat...that shit cray:
Sneeze: You were around for some of the Watch The Throne sessions, were there any beats on that album that you passed on?
PUSHA: “Niggas in Paris!” [Laughs.] I tell people all the time that I don’t know if I would’ve attacked it that way which means the record might not have been as special once I got on it.
Pusha goes on to say that he found the beat too playful:
PUSHA: ‘Ye gave me beats and that was in the bunch. “Niggas in Paris” was playful to me and I was in demonic rap mode. I was like, “Yo, I don’t want this right now,” he was like, “Man, this will be a club smash,” and I’m like, “Maybe, but don’t ask me to wrap my brain around that when I’m writing stuff like ‘My God,’ which is another Hit Boy beat.”
According to an US Weekly report (via Pink Is The New Blog), Jay-Z and Beyonce are expecting a baby girl.
“Beyoncé is thrilled she’s having a daughter,” confides a close friend of the singer’s, explaining that while Beyoncé and her husband, Jay-Z, would be happy to have a healthy child of either sex, she’d secretly been hoping for a girl. “She and her mother are so close, and she’s wanted to have that relationship with her own child.”
I'd like to invite Jay and Bey to check out brokencool's suggestions for baby names.
What's gonna happen to that whole "So at 13 we’ll have our first drink together
Black bar mitzvahs, mazel tov, mogul talk?"
You know how it goes with 50. If he's not selling records no one is.
In a recent interview with GlobalGrind, 50 talks about the first week sales numbers of Lil' Wayne's 'Tha Carter IV':
“To be honest with you, the Lil Wayne sales are a little suspect to me,” 50 told Global Grind. “Because it was trending 600,000 pieces that week. And they didn’t do a million copies, it was like 900,000. Tha Carter III commanded that energy, but the last one that just came out, those numbers are funny.”
In what may or may not be good news, 50 says his new album will be out by year's end.
