Lupe Fiasco Suicidal Over Atlantic Choosing B.o.B’s “Nothin’ On You” Over His

The pity party continues for Lupe Fiasco. The Chicago rapper recently discussed the fight with Atlantic to release his shelved LP Lasers, despite the fact the album was mostly filled with tracks he didn’t much care for. Now we learn that Lupe was nearly suicidal when his label chose B.o.B’s version of “Nothin’ On You”…

“Things Get Worse” For Eminem And B.o.B On New Track

Eminem and B.o.B scored a hit with their Grammy-nominated track “Airplanes (Part II)”, but that apparently wasn’t the only existing collaboration between the two rappers. A previously unreleased jam featuring both MCs on the mic, “Things Get Worse”, popped up on the interwebs today, hearkening back a time when the member of the YouTube Billionaires

Wiz Khalifa, Bruno Mars, B.o.B Cover ‘VIBE’

On the cover of next month’s VIBE magazine are Bruno Mars, B.o.B. and Wiz Khalifa—we’re assuming that’s the reason the colors this issue simply had to be “Black And Yellow”. Considering this is the Rolling Papers rapper’s first cover for the music mag, we have to wonder, why the long face? Was this photo taken…

Grammy Awards 2011: Who Will Win Record Of The Year?

Earlier this week we gave our two cents on who will win and who should win Grammys for Best new Artist and all the Pop categories. That brings us to one of the biggies—Record Of The Year. This award is for whatever tune NARAS deems the most anthem-like for the year prior (no easy feat!),…

Grammy Awards 2011: We Pick The Pop Winners

Sunday’s 2011 Grammy Awards telecast is sure to be noteworthy — everyone from Lady Gaga to Gwyneth Paltrow seems to be on the bill to perform — but as stoked as we are to see whether Cee Lo sticks to the censored version of his song or lets the FCC go ballistic, we’re most excited…

B.o.B Performs “Airplanes” On A Plane While Taking Off For The Grammys

In a very meta moment, B.o.B performed his hit song “Airplanes” while on an actual airplane on route to Los Angeles for the Grammys. (Sadly, Hayley Williams was not an on-board passenger.) Bobby Ray was flying Delta, the airline that recently let Kanye take over the loudspeaker with a mini-concert and also just happens to…

B.o.B Takes A Pass At J. Cole’s “Pass Me By”

J. Cole’s “Pass Me By” has been floating around in various incarnations for awhile — we previously posted a rendition featuring Kevin Cossom called “Leave Me Alone”— and today it comes with none other than B.o.B on the hook. Is this the last version we’ll hear of this charming Jim Jonsin-produced tune? Doubtful. Jump below…

B.o.B Raises Paranoia In His Video For “The Watchers”

Multiple Grammy nominee B.o.B directed the video for “The Watchers”, a song off his new mixtape No Genre (download from his official site). And in the clip, images of crop circles, soldiers, children in coffins, cats with guns (no, really) and UFOs fuel the paranoid/boastful lyrics of the Atlanta rapper’s jam. Check it below.

Bruno Mars, Katy Perry, Justin Bieber Rock ‘GRAMMY Nominations Concert Live!’

While we may not have gotten everything we wanted off of our 2011 Grammy Nominee wish list (no “Dog Days Are Over” or Ke$ha?), last night’s performances from the live telecast did not disappoint—with perhaps the exception of Katy Perry opting for a non-latex dress for “California Gurls”.

B.o.B Holds On Strong In His “Don’t Let Me Fall” Video

We were underwhelmed with B.o.B’s video for “Airplanes“, which, despite being nothing spectacular, was nominated for Video Of The Year at this past year’s VMAs. But we’re enchanted by the Atalanta rapper’s latest aspirational clip for his single, “Don’t Let Me Fall”. The Ethan Lader-directed vid was cut together using footage from B.o.B’s live shows,…

2010 MTV VMAs—Who Got Shut Out?

Lady Gaga and Eminem have so many Moonmen between them from last night’s MTV VMAs, they could start their own VMA-themed chess board. But there were plenty of big names who had to sashay throughout the after-parties empty-handed. Below, a round-up of those artists who got totally shut out at last night’s show:…
