It has come to our attention that DJ Khaled is screaming over giant, Jeep-ready beats that have lots of names and almost nothing else of any merit going for them. Again. More »
Papoose, vocally reminiscent of Jay-Z and physically reminiscent of an emaciated Panthro, swears he will marry troubled rapper Remy Ma, despite her assault conviction last Thursday, which could potentially put her in jail for the next 25 years. “We always wanted to keep our personal lives personal, so that’s why we never went public with our relationship,” said Papoose. “Right now, I just feel like she gotta live through me. Yes, we were scheduled to be married on a yacht April 27th. But due to circumstances beyond our control, we are now making arrangements to be married in prison.” if this wasn’t enough chaos, Papoose is still dealing with the fallout of punching Fat Joe in the face. Something the rapper, whose long-delayed debut album has yet to be released, is willing to do again.

Fat Joe has decided to drop his Diddy Sean John-assisted cover of Eddie Murphy’s “Party All The Time” from his forthcoming album, no doubt because he realized that you just don’t mess with success. More »
Diddy’s long history of plundering the most obvious pop hits from years past is apparently continuing, as MTV reports that he’s working with Fat Joe on a song based around Eddie Murphy’s “Party All The Time.” When I told Jess about this news, he just typed “no.” over and over again into his IM window–even though the prospect of a Ma$e remix is high! But his reaction prompted me to let all of you know something: I don’t think “Party All The Time,” which was a Z100 staple back in the station’s earliest days, is all that bad. Sure, Eddie Murphy can’t really sing and the whole song sounds like it’s been coated in an inch-thick layer of blow, but Murphy’s crap voice makes it sort of fun (and easy!) to sing along with. Not to mention that Ted Leo covered it on the street and it made him more money than any other song from Blender‘s worst-songs-ever list. So I throw it to you, readers: Is “Party All The Time” a secret smash, or does it deserve to be swept into history’s dustbin? Poll after the jump.
