In a recent interview with Vibe Magazine, rapper Tyga, shares his disdain for his Young Money label and fellow label mates Drake and Nicki Minaj. The 24-year-old rapper candidly opened up about how Young Money is not a part of the creative process with his album, his dislike for Drake, and black women having no role models.
When asked about breaking away from Young Money he responded, “Yeah I’m tryna go independent. I don’t really get along with Drake. I don’t really get along with Nicki.”
Earlier in the week, August Alsina got a surprise visit from his “No Love” collaborator, Nicki Minaj.. Last week we reported that the singer had been hospitalized after suffering multiple seizures following his September 15, 2014 show in New York City.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z‘s, “On the Run” tour has been the most talked about event this past summer. All of the fans that are apart of the “BeyHive” have been attending the fun thrilled show to see Queen Bey slay the stage. As usual, Beyoncé always performs alone but Friday night in Paris, France changed it all. Performing songs from her latest album, “Beyoncé”, she gracefully killed her performance.

Nicki Minaj left her fans speechless on Twitter, Tuesday night, when she announced the official release date for her highly anticipated “Pink Print” album. As per the rapper, the “Pink Print” will be in stores November 24, 2014. After her very memorable performance at the VMA’s and the release of her video “Anaconda,” many were anxious to know what Onika (the rapper’s given name) would be up to next.
When you’ve been given the ultimate seal of approval from superstar, Beyonce, you know you’ve arrived. After being featured on Bey’s “Flawless” remix, Nicki Minaj, was given a diamond “Flawless” necklace by the Queen Bee herself.
While both in attendance at this year’s MTV VMAs, Nicki shared the news with fans when she unveiled a photo of the beautiful necklace. The photo was captioned with this message, “If Beyonce didn’t walk into your dressing room and give you a diamond “FLAWLESS” necklace, then there’s no way you could be having a better week than me. Lol. Awwwww thank u QUEEN. ur just a precious gem. I could never thank you enough for your influence on powerful women all around the world. #WeFlawless.”
What more can a girl ask for, right?
On Wednesday Nicki Minaj released the official video for new single “Anaconda.” Although the title is straight-forward enough, I was perplex by the soft porn we were presented with.
Let me be clear, I do not see anything wrong with a woman being completely comfortable in her body and/or showing it off.
If you’ve been tuning in to all things Lil’ Kim these days, then you know, she’s dissing nemesis Nicki Minaj again! This time, the Queen Bee is claiming identity theft.
Kim shared the above image on Wednesday adding, “Be careful what you wish for… #HardCoreMixtapeUpNext #TheQueenIsBack #QueenBee”
It’s clear Kim was taking a jab at Nicki for presumably biting off of her image to launch her now success rap career.
Are you on Nicki Minaj overload? We hope not, because the rapper is just getting started. Ms. Onika has just kicked off the official promotion of highly anticipated album, ‘The Pink Print,’ with the release of new single, “Anaconda.”
Over the weekend, we got a sneak peek and listen to Nicki Minaj’s new single “Anaconda.”
The racy single art and visuals had everyone in a frenzy, to say the least, but today Ms. Onika is getting the last laugh. The single is now the #1 rap single on the i-Tunes charts. _______READMORE
Nicki Minaj caused a frenzy last week when she unveiled the above image of the single art for new single, “Anaconda.” The highly anticipated debut single, off Nicki’s forthcoming album The Pink Print, was officially set to debut on Monday, August 4th, but has been leaked.
And there’s just one problem, despite the hot and steamy cover, the single has garnered mostly negative feedback. Sampling Sir Mix A Lot‘s 1992 single, “Baby Got Back,” the single hasn’t yet resonated with fans. Our opinion, however, the upbeat booty poppin’ number will be a commercial success.
Head over to Hot New Hip Hop to listen to the track and share your thoughts.

During a recent phone interview with radio personality Angie Martinez, Remy revealed that not only was she excited about being released from prison but for getting her life and career back on track.
As for her competition in Hip Hop right now, Remy notes fellow rapper, Nicki Minaj, as always being supportive but also says that she’s ready to claim her spot as the dominant female emcee in the game.
As for her husband and rapper Papoose, whom she wed while incarcerated, Remy says that she was surprised by his loyalty and that he has always supported her since day one.
There are also some talk that the rapstress may have a reality show deal in the works to document her life and career post prison. We’ll keep you posted.
Are you excited from Remy’s release and return to Hip Hop?
*Update:* As of July 31, 2014, Remy’s release date has been pushed back due to a “disciplinary incident” that occurred on July 21st. It’s believed the rapper may have had an altercation with another inmate. No word yet on a future release date.
Nicki Minaj has just unveiled her cover artwork for new single “Anaconda.” Ms. Onika shared the very hot and steamy single art, Thursday morning, to announce, “7/28 #ANACONDA on iTunes.”
Although Nicki has posed “spread-eagle” before, she’s previously opted out of doing so for fear of not being taken seriously as a rapper and being seen as another overtly sexy female rapper. Well, it seems, that faze has passed. And, Nicki has long proven her skill-set as an MC and as one of the most influential and dominating female rappers of our time.
With that being said, the new single will be featured on Minaj’s upcoming and highly anticipated album ‘The Pink Print.’
