His fourth studio album, C.A.S.H. (Cass A Straight Hustla), is set to be released on November 2nd, 2010 on Denver Nuggets star Carmelo Anthony’s new label, Krossover Entertainment.

“I’m happy to be in business with E1,” Carmelo Anthony said. “I came to E1 because I know all the hard work they are going to put into the project and I’m glad to have an artist like Cassidy. Cassidy has been through so much and has a tremendous story to tell.”

Jay Z says Willow Smith may be the next Micheal Jackson!!!

Posted by yoMcLovin on September 9, 2010

Jay-Z is confirming that the 9-year-old daughter of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith is an official Roc Nation signee.

Hov hopped Ryan Seacrest’s morning radio show today (Sept. 9) to explain Willow’s joining the Roc roster. “I heard the record first before I knew that it was recorded by a nine year old and I was like man that records a smash,” Jay-Z told Seacrest. “I believe in superstars. I believe on big records on superstars and I think she has both.”

 During the Seacrest interview, the precocious singer talked about hating math homework and inheriting her individuality from her mama.

Explaining the meaning of “Whip My Hair,” Willow, whose musical inspirations include Michael Jackson and Billy Idol, said, “It means just being an individual. You can’t be afraid to be yourself and you can’t let anybody tell you that that’s wrong… My mom and me are very strong individuals. A lot of people don’t act like themselves so they’re not happy.”

“She has a clear vision of what she wants and who she wants to be,” said Jay-Z. “I don’t want to go so far but I can imagine that’s how Mike was as a young kid. He knew exactly what he wanted.”

When Seacrest asked, “Did you ever worry she’s too young?” Jay-Z reminded him how early the King of Pop got started.

“I believe you have to start somewhere. When you have that sort of talent and you have that sort of vision, there’s no such thing as too young. Again, I heard the record without knowing who it was. It’s a hit record,” said Jay. “If you listen to any comments, everyone says I can’t believe that as an adult that you like a record that’s made by a 9-year-old. But we all danced to Michael Jackson records when he was 8. Stevie Wonder started at 8.”

His advice to Willow: “Just enjoy the process and have fun doing it and just stay true to the values that she had coming in the door.”

Kanye West using Taylor Swifts name to promote his new album and she’s not happy about it at all

Taylor Swift reportedly is not happy when learning that Kanye West keeps bringing up the MTV Video Music Awards incident which saw her standing in embarrassment while he rudely threw drunken rants on stage. She allegedly accused the rapper of using her name to promote his new music.

“Taylor is furious that Kanye keeps discussing the VMAs incident,” a source said. “She’s fed up of hearing about it and is disgusted that he has the cheek to use her name to promote his new album! Taylor has moved on from the incident and is hoping Kanye will – eventually – do the same.”

Kanye West previously admitted to public that he was wrong for attacking Taylor Swift in front of live audience. “With new found humility … who am I to run on stage? I would never ever again in a million years do that. Sorry to let you down,” he wrote on Twitter.

Blaming the media for “getting between” him and Taylor, he insists he’s actually not a bad person. He explained, “That moment I was only trying to do good but people don’t always need my help. Beyonce [Knowles] didn’t need that. MTV didn’t need that and Taylor and her family friends and fans definitely didn’t want or need that.”

T.I. Covers Upscale Magazine (September / October 2010)

Posted by yoMcLovin on September 1, 2010

Clifford is on two covers of the September and October issue of Upscale magazine.

On his new album:
This project just like all of my projects will be a open window into my life, what I’m going through, how I feel and where I am right now.

On where he is:
I’m still learning and growing everyday. I do believe this project is in some ways the final installment of a trilogy. TI vs. TIP being the first one…. I hope that events of my life are captured in music in all of my records. So they were there for the beginning, they saw the middle (with Paper Trail) and now the only thing left to be seen is the conclusion.

On the advice he’d give to young Clifford Harris:
I would say man, if you knew what I knew, you would chill out… I would tell myself you’re going to be alright later on, all you have to do is cool out, you might not see it right now, but you have a reason to fall back. I just hope that I would listen.

On his best and worst character traits:
I can manage to be arrogant or confident as well as be humble and possess a certain level of humility. I can be aggressive and I can also be mild mannered.

On his future in hip hop:
I know I still have the ability to do it, but I don’t know if I have as much passion to do it as I once did… I might find that I’m more effective in another capacity, but I won’t know if I don’t ever try. I have other talents and abilities that I may not be paying any attention to because I have this first one that I’m very fond of and I’ve grown attached to… As an artist I still would like to be better, but as an artist, I think TI has had a stellar career already.

On loyalty getting in the way of business:
…If I say I’m gonna ride with you, I’m gonna ride with you. That’s personally, professionally. So even if I know that you might not be all what everyone else thinks you’re cracked up to be, I’m still gonna ride it out with you. It does get tiresome and it does get gruesome at time, but I don’t know no other way to be.

On being a daddy:
I make them look up different places and ask them where would they like to go. I just spend time with them. I try to stimulate their interests and build on that.

On his favorite quality in a woman:
Just having that instinct of when to take charge and when to fall back.

Nicki Minaj

Posted by yoMcLovin on August 24, 2010

The Harajuku Barbie lives up to her moniker in this latest promo photo from her shoot with photographer Howard Huang. Nicki looks pretty in pink as she strikes a deadly pose, brandishing a hot magenta sword over her clementine tuft of hair as she finds her inner Zen in front of a rocky cove.

This is just one of the many looks that the versatile Young Money rapstress has tried on in the promotional pictures for her upcoming debut album Pink Friday, currently slated to hit stores November 23, with previous pics showcasing the rap Hannah Montana clutching brass knuckles as she seductively stares at the camera. But based on this picture alone, Minaj is ready to strike—and won’t be taking any prisoners.

Whip Game Proper (in my T.I voice)

Posted by yoMcLovin on August 24, 2010

T.I. tore up the Las Vegas strip this past weekend at the annual Magic convention, held at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center. The 29-year-old was on hand to unveil a one-of-a-kind R 1 motorcycle, a collaboration between the Yamaha & Voodoo Custom Sport Bikes and the rapper’s AKOO clothing brand.

The bike, customized by Voodoo Industries’ Rob Uecker, retails for a healthy $80,000, featuring wood paneling, air ride rear suspension, full custom paint inspired by AKOO’s style and integrated turn signals. Sporting selections from his clothing brand, T.I. mounted the bike as convention-goers snapped pictures from the sidelines, getting a first glimpse of the vehicle. We wouldn’t mind riding that mean-looking whip, either.
