Last night Jazmine Sullivan stopped through Atlanta, GA and packed out her venue at The Tabernacle. Celebrity friends like Kerii Hilson stopped in to show support. Keri took to her Instagram to say this about the show and their history of friendship:
got goosebumps, shed a tear, & lost my voice…we shared our first ever promo tour together (Russ Parr), & it was encouraging to witness her return after similar experiences…I think I’ve made it clear that I LOVE@jsullivanmusic!
Goosebumps are right! Jazmine sent chills through every fan in the house with her live performance of In Love With Another Man. We have the footage so you can get into that below. (more…)

It’s no secret how much Kanye West loved his momma Donda West. In this extended clip of an MTV special that aired a few years back we were given a closer glimpse of how dynamic their relationship was.
In the first half of the clip you’ll see Momma Donda reciting one of Ye’s favorite verses that he recited as a teenager but never recorded. The two sat together and tried their best to recite the lyrics verbatim and when they were finished she looked at him and said:
Momma West: I loved that rap, — you didn’t think it was good? Now its mad wack, huh?
Kanye: Naw its good. That shows you if you have a rap that actually means something its good.
Momma West: You gone come back with it?
It’s amazing to see how she supportive she was not only in this video but throughout his career. The second half of the video brought us to tears as we watched the intimate son and mother heartfelt duet to Kanye’s Hey Mama song. Although she passed suddenly back in 2007 she still lives through his lyrics, interviews and through the foundation he created in her honor titled Donda.

Just like most of the world the Kardashian clan took their talents to church yesterday on Easter Sunday. The family color coordinated in mostly white with the exception of Kourtney who opted for navy blue and tan.
While we’re used to Kim Kardashian showing off her curvaceous body she was probably the least revealing yesterday. While on the other hand her younger sisters Kendall and Kylie caused an uproar on social media for their ensembles of choice. Kendall went to church in a crop top and a pair of capris. Kylie, although she was a lot less revealing, slipped into a crop top as well and a pair of really fitted skinny jeans.
Kylie’s boo thang Tyga and his son King Cairo were also photographed coming out of church with the fam. Fans are questioning whether Blac Chyna has a problem with this. Hmmm, guess we’ll have to wait to find out.
And it looks like Kris Jenner and her chocolate young boo are still at it. Where’s French Montana?

Will Smith stole hearts all over the world last night with the heartfelt speech he dedicated to his wife of 20 years during the Black Girls Rock Awards. He brought up that nasty rumor that was swirling around last year about Jada divorcing him and began to reminisce on what his life would have been like without her. Lets just say he’s happy that the rumor was only a rumor.
This years Black Girls Rock was pegged as the best one yet and we most certainly agree. Aside from Will’s heartfelt speech there were plenty of other memorable occurrencess and tear jerkers that took lace throughout the night.
Check out a few of our favorites below. (more…)
Cha now you knew I was going to be all over this story! Tea for dayz. LOL!
Okay so last time we checked Rick Ross was dating Atlanta boss chick Ming Lee and we were definitely rooting for them. On Christmas Day Ming let it be known that the two were official when she posted a flick of her and Ross spending quality time together. For a month or two we would see photos of Ming and Ross boo’d up religiously, up until a video clip was released on Diddy’s Instagram of Ross sitting next to a beautiful brownskin during All Star Weekend in NYC.
Shortly after that video hit the net Ross was pictured with his stylist looking suspect as ever. From the looks of the photos ole’ girl appeared to be giving Rozay a kiss on the lips. (more…)
Kendrick Lamar takes us into the hood of Compton in his latest video King Kunta. The video could’ve been a scene out of Boyz In The Hood with its pimped out low riders, LA fitted caps and beautiful women such as Lira Galore and Briana Bette.
Yesterday K. Dot debuted his video on the Jumbatron in New York City’s Times Square. Aside from that great marketing tactic, it appears that his How To Pimp A Butterfly album is still charting No. 1 on Billboard.
Watch Kendrick sit on his the throne in the video below. (more…)
It’s no secret that rapper Wale wears his heart on his sleeves. Although the DC native has achieved much success it seems as if he isn’t comfortable at his level of artistry and in his most recent interview with Billboard he gets candid about it. The rapper also gets personal while sharing stories about taking pills, going through a miscarriage with his ex and more.
These are the things you are most likely going to hear about on his new album The Album About Nothing.
Get into it below.
What are you talking about on this album that hits closest to home when it comes to your life?
The music industry. You can say I’m sensitive, but music is why I live. Other people have kids or a strong woman in their lives; all I have is my music. I constantly work my ass off and I’m not in these magazines — all I can go by is the people and what they say. People ask, “Why do you check social-media comments?” But what else do I have, bro? I don’t get no major articles. Nobody talks about Wale like that. So what do you do when you’re busting your ass and taking pills to stay up and be able to provide the right energy, and you’re not seeing the proper response?
What kind of pills?
My confidence was shot, so I’d be taking whatever to keep me in a good mood, to get me in the right mood for an interview. I’m not going into the details as to what I was taking, but there’s definitely something for that. Just like there’s a fuckin’ app for everything, there’s a damn pill for everything. Or something you can pour in your glass. I was depressed not being where I wanna be in my career when I’ve put the work in. I wasn’t sleeping. I was drinking all day and I didn’t have anyone to go to. I couldn’t fight it. Those are some of the demons I talk about on the album.
On “The Matrimony,” you rap about going through a miscarriage… (more…)
