Hey Byrd!!! Man I've been so super busy myself. Sorry I haven't called you in a while. Between this business and pulling a full time job I barely get time to even sleep. But it'll all pay off in the long run. Don't kill me about not putting your music up yet. I'm so slow. I'm gonna make that happen though. So how are you and how's everything going? Where have you been performing at lately? And how's Butter? We need to get together ASAP bro for real!!!!!!!
LOL. Yeah I got 3 bucks, but spending your 3 bucks is much more fun. You gotta take care of your sis man!!!! And I'm about to add your music right now. Sorry I haven't done it before now. I'm a little absent minded, especially now that my time is so consumed with this business. You know your sis got your back though.
Wondaland records founder Janelle Monae partied alongside her labelmates last night, supporting rapper 2 Chainz at the release of his mixtape Trapaveli 3. See the photos and pics of "The Real" co-hosts taking over NYC inside...
Last night, Janelle Monae stepped out to support rapper 2 Chainz during his Trapaveli 3 mixtape release party in Atlanta.
Janelle ditched her signature look (tuxedo pants) for an eye-catching black and white dress that showed off her curves and "Yoga"-toned thighs.
Shown above with labelmate Nate ‘Rocket’ Wonder (of Deep Cotton), Janelle recently wrapped The EEPHUS tour, which celebrated the release of Wondaland's latest EP.
"Classic Man" Jidenna was in the building, posing with producer Nana Kwabena.
"Hollywood Exes" star Andrea Kelly was out and about.
Onto the man of the hour...
2 Chainz rolled up a joint to celebrate his new mixtape.
And he sipped from a white paper cup. SMH....the club couldn't spring for glasses?
DJ Drama., DJ D Nice and music manager Chaka Zulu hung out with the hair weave killer too.
Check out a track from the album...
Over in the Big Apple....
After announcing she will flexing her dancing skills on “DWTS” this morning, R&B songstress and “The Real” co-host Tamar Braxton made her way to the “Good Day New York” set (looking fresh faced and fancy) to promote the upcoming new season of the FOX daytime talk show.
The Love & War singer will have her plate overflowing with gigs. On top of joining “DWTS,” and co-hosting on “The Real,” she’s gearing to release her new album Calling All Lovers, she has to film for two reality shows (“Braxton Family Values” & “Tamar & Vince”) AND be a wife and mother. Sheesh!
“The Real” co-host Adrienne Bailon took time from planning her wedding with fiancé Lenny Santiago to serve up a flawless shot while promoting the show. Chick slayed in a cut-out LBD that she paired with a Giuseppe Zanotti’s ‘Cruel Summer’ sandals. HOT.
We spotted new mom again Tamera Mowry Housley traveling from L.A. to the Big Apple with her 2-month-old baby girl Ariah Housley (catch the first peek at her face HERE) yesterday, so we knew she would be front-and-center for “The Real’s” NYC takeover. She rocked a simple, yet clean ensemble wearing a white button up shirt that was tied up at the waist paried with a blue-stripped skirt and nude Christian Louboutin pumps.
The fab mom stopped to sign a few autographs for the adoring fans waiting outside.
Meanwhile, Tamar flashed a gorgeous smile as she made her way to her next destination.
"The Real" returns for a new season September 14th on FOX.
1. If you’re a fan of “Survivor’s Remorse,” we have good news. STARZ has renewed the hit basketball themed series for a third season. Nice!
Outspoken rap star Azealia Banks is back to poppin’ off on Twitter. And this time she’s going in on the VMA beef between Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus, which we're not even mad at. Then, she drags Beyonce in the mix while she aims for Nicki. Peep her tweets inside…
We knew it would only be a matter of time before Harlem raptress Azealia Banks started poppin’ off about the 2015 MTV VMAs. Y’all know chick always has an opinion and is never afraid to express EXACTLY how she feels about certain topics…even on public platforms. In fact, she loves sharing her gems, whether others agree with her or not, on social media. And this time, we agree.
Case in point: Nicki Minaj vs. Miley Cyrus’ on-stage “beef” during Nicki’s acceptance speech. In so many words, the Broke With Expensive Taste rapper called their feud a “contest of the basics” and called Miley’s music “WHACK AS F*CK.” We can always count on her to say the things other folk in the limelight are scared to say.
Fans begin asking Azealia why she started going in on Nicki when she once supported her. Her response was that she likes some of the Young Money star’s music, but she believes her own music is BETTER.
When a fan asked her about Beyonce getting rid of her remix and adding Nicki’s (OH?) she said the reason Bey supposedly axed her tracks is because of her lack of skin bleaching tablets. No sure if she's coming for Bey or Nicki with that comment...but we're going with the latter.
Peep most of her tweets, because there are a SLEW of them, below (read from the bottom up):
So…those rumors swirling around last month about Teyana Taylor and Iman Shumpert expecting ARE in fact true. Despite Teyana saying they weren't. Get the deets and find out what they’re having inside…
Well this is interesting.
Last month, rumors that “Maybe” singer Teyana Taylor and her NBA baller boo Iman Shumpert were making rounds on these Internet streets, claiming they were expecting their first child together.
Teyana wasted NO time to hop on Instagram to clap back at the alleged pregnancy rumors. She posted a picture of her flat, washboard abs to her Instagram account with the caption, “Thursday no throwback bih #RuthlessRecords #StraightOuttaSources,” in an effort to say she's not pregnant.
But, it appears the picture she threw up WAS a throwback pic.
Today, her Cleveland Cavalier baller boyfriend took to his Instagram to make the official announcement that they are pregnant with their first child together! He posted the baby’s sonogram picture on IG with a long, sweet message dishing on all the baby deets. He revealed they're having a baby girl and she’s expected to make her arrival on January 16, 2016, which means she's about 5-6 months along.
Not only that, the happy couple has already picked out a name: Iman Tayla Shumpert Jr.
Hmm…Iman must not know “Jr.” doesn't normally go at the end of a little girl’s name…but you know how everyone is always trying to be different, so that could be the case.
Check out his full announcement below:
When a man loves a woman how she was born to be loved...procreation is the best blessing you can receive! I couldn't be more happy than to share my first child with the woman I intended to have my family with. Iman Tayla Shumpert, Jr. is expected to enter this world "1.16.16". We want that world to be as pure as possible for her. We people, show the world what we feel the world should see when we want them to see it...something this beautiful had to be announced when we were ready for everyone to know...this is what happiness grows into! I love you @teyanataylor thank you for your sacrifice in starting our very own family! P.s. I know you see my daughter with her hand behind her head and her feet kicked up....she's already daddy's little girl!!!
We heard she wanted to wait until her appearance on Chris Brown's One Hell Of A Nite tour was complete before announcing. So much for that.
Now, it looks like she and her ex-bestie Tae Heckard (who is pregnant with Teyana's ex Brandon Jennings' baby) are expecting at the same time.
