T.I. To Youth: “Take It Slow, Buy Your Artillery Legally”

anthonyjmiccio | April 11, 2008 - 3:30 am

T.I. recently gave the Atlanta Journal-Constitution a look into his chastened, post-trial soul as he prepares to fufill a year of community service before imprisonment. “Sometimes it was like, ‘If I don’t get this right now I’m just going to lose it’… When you’re going 350 mph it tends to be that way. But when… More »

Bobby Valentino Leaves Def Jam, Loves Bloggers

anthonyjmiccio | April 11, 2008 - 2:45 am

Bobby Valentino has left his contract with Def Jam records, seemingly because he (like everyone here at Idolator), was bummed at the lack of attention his last album, Special Occasion, and its outstanding Timbaland-assisted single “Anonymous” received. He claims to still be cool with former label Disturbing Tha Peace and its owner Ludacris (“I was… More »

Part 2: Singalongs, Puppy-Filled Dreams, And “Passionate Kisses”

Kate Richardson | April 11, 2008 - 2:15 am

It’s been a minute since last I filed a music report from Madrid. I’d like to claim that it’s because I’ve been busy, but to be honest I’ve just been lazy and negligent, and for that I apologize. I still have a few albums waiting in my listening queue, but until I get around to… More »

Somehow, Jack Johnson Is Only Playing Five Festivals This Summer

Maura | April 11, 2008 - 1:45 am

That’s the word from Jeff Leeds at the New York Times, who penned a story on the fact that there may be something of a summer-rockfest glut hitting the U.S. over the coming months. With the lousy economy putting the hurt on potential cabana sales and the overlapping lineups making each festival less of a… More »

Maura | April 10, 2008 - 12:15 pm

If you had “April 10″ in your “When will Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter III be delayed once again?” pool, congratulations: The long-in-the-works album has been pushed back from its already-delayed release date, and is now set to hit stores on June 10, a date that Universal execs no doubt picked in part because it kept… More »

The Regeneration Tour: Because There Aren’t Enough Naked Ploys For Nostalgia Out There

Maura | April 10, 2008 - 11:00 am

Perhaps realizing that “’80s music” has become a genre of its own, and that there’s no better way to grab dollars from the thirtysomething demographic than to remind them of the hits of their youth, Red Entertainment Agency has announced that this summer would mark the first Regeneration Tour, in which six artists from the… More »

Soulja Boyz II Men: An Idea Whose Time Has Come?

Maura | April 10, 2008 - 10:30 am

This video of “failed ideas in hip-hop” has its moments–the RickRossRoll being one that some enterprising YouTuber should seize upon immediately–but the last 30 seconds, which are taken over by an unholy wedding between “Crank That” and “End Of The Road,” may be the most sublime sound-collision… More »

“Idol Gives Back” Gives Us Controversy, Takes Up Way Too Much Space On Our DVR

Maura | April 10, 2008 - 9:30 am

I’ll confess: Thanks to a demanding blogging schedule and something resembling a vague sense of dread, I still haven’t watched all of “Idol Gives Back” yet. It was long–and that was before it ran overtime! (Seriously, a pretaped television program running over? Why not just start it at 7, and pre-empt that awful TMZ show?)… More »

Countin’ Down The Drum Stems! Remixable Single Gives Radiohead A Hit

Chris Molanphy | April 10, 2008 - 5:15 am

Ed. note: Chris “dennisobell” Molanphy, our resident chart guru, looks at the upward, downward, and lack of movement on this week’s Billboard charts:

For all their popularity the world over, songs by Radiohead haven’t exactly set the charts alight. (Even in their homeland: they’ve never scored a U.K. No. 1.) In part that’s due… More »
