Beyonce and Jay-Z Use the Migos to Stay Relevant on New ApeSh#t Song

By: Jarrod Horton

Beyonce and Jay-Z who should be formally referred to as the Carters drop a surprising joint album out the blue called Everything is Love. They also released their first single accompanied by a video titled ApeShit. The song has Beyonce rapping not singing on most of the song, with Jigga contributing a verse. If you wondering what is up with Beyonce’s new flow; you should look no further than the Migos. A reference track has surfaced online of the Migos rapping the song, and apparently Bey used that to complete it. Basically, the Migos are the ghostwriters and I guessed Beyonce thought it was wise to leave them for the adlibs, since it is their song. One may wonder why Jay didn’t write the song? I mean he is one of the best writers in rap history and he is on the song. I don’t know the answer , but it seems that regardless of their success, the Carters have to remain current. A lot of people have speculated that the only reason that the Carters dropped their album was to upstage Nas album and the stream of new music that has came from Kanye’s G.O.O.D Music camp. Whatever the reason is, you still have to respect their hustle.

In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, comedienne Tiffany Haddish open up with her interactions with other celebrities. She talked about greeting and figuring out Roseanne was a racist back in the early 2000’s.   ‘Hi, Roseanne! I love your comedy,’ and she (makes the same disgusted face) and turns her head. I think ‘Fuck that bitch.’ That was 2000, maybe 2001, so it’s not new. She been racist, why’d you all give her a TV show?” she said about her encounter with Roseanne.

Tiffany also admitted that Sanaa Lathan’s family was upset after she told about an encounter between Sanaa and Beyonce. “They were like, ‘Why would you do this to the family? You know, black actresses, you guys have to stick together, it’s so hard for you guys to get work as it is, why would you try to ruin her career?’ But I didn’t try to ruin her career. I never said her name! I was just trying to say how Beyoncé kept me from goin’ to jail that night. I coulda just shut my whole career down.” she said.

Amongst other things, Tiffany talked about how she wasn’t trippin that Tracy Morgan brushed her off in an interview. “I’m not mad about it, I love me some Tracy.” she said about the incident. She also talked about flirting with Leonardo Di Caprio. “Yeah, I met him at a party two, three months ago, and I asked him if he’d let me hit that.” To read Tiffany’s full interview click here.

Confusion and Chaos Describes Kanye West + Kid Cudi’s “Kids See Ghosts” Album

By: Jarrod Horton

Staff Writer

The third installment from Kanye’s G.O.O.D Music camp comes in the form of a collaboration album between Kanye West and Kid Cudi. Their seven track album titled Kid See Ghost features Pusha T, Yasiin Bey (Mos Def) and Louis Prima. The first track Feel the Love sounds like an intro. and pretty much sets the tone on the album. On this particular song their is just one verse from Pusha T and nothing else, however it is consistent with the concept of Kid Cudi singing or harmonizing hooks accompanied by random verses from Kanye West. The second track Fire kicks off with Ye and follows with a verse from Kid Cudi. I can say after the track went off, I wasn’t feeling the direction the album was going in. Honestly, I was confused on what the hell was going on. The 4th Dimension was the best song I heard in the beginning I like the beat and I thought the lyrics was nice. It was the first song that I nodded my head to. Continue reading
