Nicki Minaj’s Powerhouse Set: “Dropping My Single On Wednesday”

Yasss, Bish
Nicki Minaj invited Soulja Boy during Power 106′s Powerhouse show in Los Angeles, to perform their collaboration “Yasss Bish!!!” as it was released two weeks ago. When it wrapped, though, Minaj offered a correction — or as she said, “a little tiny remix” — to her lyrics. “I was saying, ‘Dropping my single in two weeks.’ Now I said, ‘Dropping my single on Wednesday / tell them bitches I’m their sensei.’”

For fans, that first line was crucial. By then, they already told Minaj that they had been counting down from when “Yasss Bish!!!” dropped, only to feel misled. More »

Nicki Minaj Reveals New Single Release Date In “Yasss Bish” Featuring Soulja Boy: Listen

Nicki Minaj, tell ‘em. In her new song “Yasss Bish,” she places a bid for the Los Angeles Clippers as Dr. Dre, Puff Daddy and Rick Ross did earlier this week. In between calls for a babysitter (see, her rap competition requires supervision), she praises Jada Pinkett-Smith: “Look up to Jada, I love her and Will.”

And as he did for Instagram (above), Soulja Boy grovels to Minaj at the hook. Yes, that’s him saying, “Yasss bish, yasss.”

To Minaj, Soulja Boy’s gracious hook predict how Barbs will soon praise her – for “Yasss Bish,” sure, but also for something even bigger. “Dropping my single in two weeks /The Pink Print album a movie,” she squeals, as if stoked to kick off her next album era. Say it with Soulja Boy, now — “Yasss bish, yasss” — and hear Minaj’s explosive new song below. More »

Drake Remixes Soulja Boy’s “We Made It”: Listen

How does Drake create a New Year’s anthem? Mostly by refusing to change. In a remix of Soulja Boy‘s “We Made It,” he tweaks the cycling-class flow snatched from Migos‘ “Versace” to add a remorseful note here, cue a moment of silence there — for his non-competition, obviously — and reels through a list of accomplishments that includes paying off his lawyer’s fees.

“My resolution for New Year’s is n—-, we made it,” Drake crows, as he reduces Soulja Boy to a yes man on his own track.

Drake’s “We Made It” remix is just one of several “New Year’s Eve Anthems” to be released over the next few days, including the Hit-Boy-produced “Trophies.” Clearly, the Nothing Was the Same rapper isn’t cutting tracks about resolving to lose weight, volunteer to help others or save money. Instead, he’s recording drinking-out-of-your-Grammy music, Kanye-West-is-my-only-competition music, as many sequels to “Worst Behavior” as he can stand. Hear it after the jump. More »

Soulja Boy Is Back With A Highly Dubious New Song Called “She Twerkin’ Like Miley”: Listen

What happened to Soulja Boy? His music was never particularly high brow but “Crank That (Soulja Boy)” was an absolute jam and has the receipts to prove it. (Billboard ranked it as the 23rd most successful song of the 2000s). Unfortunately, I doubt this latest effort will meet with as much success. A new track called “She Twerkin’ Like Miley” has surfaced online and it’s… and acquired taste.

The 23-year-old raps about Miley Cyrus‘ infamous booty-clapping ability — like Jay Z did before him — but this not as polished as Hov’s effort. The MC drops clangers like “she’s twerkin’ like she Miley Cyrus, I’m like baby I need to try this” and “she twerkin’ like her name is Miley, I’m lovin’ the way that she wind it” before descending into bizarre brags about living in a condo and being really high.

The highlight is when the MC tries to rhyme “Cyrus” with “stylist”. Listen if you dare after the jump. More »

Drake And Chris Brown Collaborate On Soulja Boy’s “Yamaha Mama”: Listen

Drake and Chris Brown have yet to team up on anything besides their respective (alleged) Rihanna disses, which makes this recently surfaced collaboration between the two of them noteworthy. The two artists teamed up way back in the day on “Yamaha Mama”, their take on Soulja Boy and Sean Kingston‘s collab of the same name off 2008′s iSouljaBoyTellem. We’re not exactly sure when this was recorded, why it was shelved, or why they decided to rework this harmless love song, but some things were never meant to be known.

Grammys Backlash: 10 Artists Who Are Over The Awards Show

For as long as there have been music awards, there have been musicians with opinions about those music awards, and the Grammys are no exception. Depending on your point of view, Arcade Fire trumping commercial heavyweights Lady Gaga, Eminem and Katy Perry for Album of the Year at last year’s ceremony was either the event’s salvation or the moment it jumped the shark.

That polarizing victory reignited a decades-old debate about the relevance and future direction of the awards show. Grammy nominees — and Grammy wannabes — have long argued over whether the music industry’s most prestigious trophy has become meaningless in the face of commercialization, and whether an artist’s sales figures and cultural impact should be taken into account when choosing Grammy winners. Jump below to see 10 of the most famous Grammy beefs in recent memory. More »
