Here is a behind the scenes look at Big Boi’s next video for ‘In The A’ featuring T.I. and Ludacris. The visual was of course shot in Atlanta and will be released soon. “Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors” in stores now.
Atlanta rapper T.I. is set to release his eighth studio album titled “Trouble Man: Heavy Is the Head” in mid-December, and one of the tracks on the project named “Addresses” is a diss track reportedly aimed at either Gucci Mane or Alley Boy. T.I. stopped by DJ Drama’s Shade45 show to discuss the matter and speak on who it’s aimed at.
“Nah it was direct, yeah it was direct,” T.I. explained when asked if the track was even aimed at a particular target.
Drama then asked Tip who it was aimed at and without name-dropping an artist, T.I. thoroughly explained his motives behind the track.
“The thing about who it’s directed to it benefits them more than me for me to put that out there so I made it directly to them in a way so only they will know. Therefore they can not get any shine off of it. So I’m gonna make a prediction here everybody on Shade45 on Drama show. They’ll shall be a few rappers that feel they will be benefited by accepting that burden and they will step into that line of fire knowing that it is not them but they feel that is is better for them to step into that line of fire, be hit, and receive the benefits that come with being hit by a T.I. bullet. That will be the greatest thing to ever happen to them in they life, man.”
Here is the official music video for DJ Khaled‘s “Bitches & Bottles (Let’s Get It Started)” single featuring Lil Wayne, Future, T.I., and Ace Hood. Cameos can be seen from Birdman, Mack Maine, Gudda Gudda, Mavado, and Mike Will. This visual, which was directed by Gil Green, was shot in Miami. The original song (without Ace Hood‘s verse) can be found on Khaled‘s Kiss The Ring album.
T.I.’s latest single ‘Ball’ with Lil Wayne is currently spinning on the radio and gaining momentum but Tip already has 2 more promo singles lined up before the release of Trouble Man: Heavy Is The Head on December 18th. On November 27th, one of the most anticipated songs from the album ‘Sorry’ featuring Andre 3000 will be released exclusively on iTunes, followed by “Meet The Musician” podcast on December 4th and another single ‘Hello’ with Cee-Lo Green on the 11th.
After releasing his new Young Jeezy diss track ‘Truth’ recently, Gucci Mane follows it up with some visuals. He has also brought T.I. and Slick Pulla into this, saying they can both get it. Alley Boy has also jumped in the beef, saying he is going to run Young Jeezy out of Atlanta. According to Lil Lody, a response from Jeezy featuring Lil Boosie is coming soon.
During my tracking session with DJ Jeff Phantom last night, I stumbled across a song that struck me as kind of odd. Not odd in a bad way, but I just could not let the entire song finish. About half way through T.I.’s verse on Iggy Azalea’s ‘Murda Buziness’, I just kept starting the song from the beginning, over and over again. With a wild beat produced by Bei Maejor, this track found a way to fly to the top of my favorite track list before the first time I even listened to the entire thing. Check the method below.
Rack City was such a recognizable track, that a remix was only the logical step in keeping the banger alive on the airwaves. This time around, YMCMB’s Tyga teamed up with Wale, Fabolous, Young Jeezy, Meek Mill and T.I. to deliver a remix worthy of radio spins I’m positive it’ll attain. Check out the official video below.
Tip Harris has been a well known face in the Hip Hop community for many a year, but some of the decisions he’s made in his personal life since his entrance into the spot light have been a bit… odd. Weather you’ve been waiting for it since it was announced, or never cared enough to remember hearing about it, T.I.’s reality show has almost reached the airwaves. VH1 released a preview recently about the man, the mogul, and the myths that surround his mind-state. Check the method below.
There are so many artists who cross genres of entertainment and up losing respect from some of their once loyal fans. I’m not sure how much of that has happened to the R&B singer Tyrese, but I feel the opposite way. You simply have to give the man his props for being able to draw an audience to a movie theater (Fast Five and of course Baby Boy), and still keep things rockin’ with songs like ‘Too Easy’ ft. Ludacris, and his newest remix featuring T.I. titled ‘Fireworkz’. Click the pic to take a listen to the song.
Flexin’ is a urban term that can be used to describe many things, flexing muscles, initiating physical conflict, or boasting materialistic wealth. All of these various definitions could very well be attributes of both T.I. and Big Krit, so it’s no wonder they came together to film the video for their new track “I’m Flexin”. The official video has yet to be released, but you can check out some of the behind the scenes footage below.
Since breaking through with 2010′s K.R.I.T. Wuz Here, Big K.R.I.T. has been on rap’s fast track. As an MC, he has worked alongside Bun B, Ludacris and David Banner, and last week, he landed his biggest production credit yet with T.I. On “I’m Flexin’,” Tip’s first single since being released from Prison last week, the Meridian, Mississippi, producer gave the Grand Hustle CEO a rocked-tinged, Southern-fried banger.

I respect anyone that can get up and admit when they’ve made a mistake, but you keep making the same mistake over and over, you better come back with a damn good apology. That being said I was very interested to hear what T.I. would have to say on his first interview back from the slammer. Check it out below.
I know quite a few people that think of cover bands as groups who can’t produce their own material, and are forced to take the already successful material of others. But in most cases, this is very far from the truth. Even further away from the truth is the belief that hip hop songs can’t be properly re-conceived by anyone other than a hip hop artist. I’ve got 5 videos that prove otherwise.
5. Anya Marina – Whatever You Like
Thanks to exposure from Gossip Girl (yeah son) this song flew into all of our hearts with Anya Marina’s exotic voice singing to pre-jail T.I. Sung from a female perspective, Marina seem completely in charge. it’s more pop than rock, but it’s still an amazing rendition.
4. The Fray – Heartless
Say what you will about Isaac Slade’s sing-song voice, but it does wonders to Kanye’s heavily auto-tuned break-up jam. The band’s cover is haunting and you can really feel the pain behind the lyrics the way they perform it.
3. Jenny Owen Youngs – Hot In Herre
Hearing a soft-spoken Jenny Owen Youngs sing “I was like, good gracious ass is bodacious / flirtaticious, tryin’ to show faces / lookin’ for the right time to shoot my steam” is the best way to open the most awesome rap cover ever. Throughout the song she sings with such seriousness about “poppin’ the bottles” that I had to listen to it twice to hear through my own laughter.
2. Framing Hanley – Lollipop
I know many readers may not know that a mashup of Lil Wayne’s track Lollipop that basically took me from an amateur with a buzz, to a up-and-coming professional. That being said, I have a special appreciate for this song, and personal distaste for anyone who messes it up. But when my good friend Adam Patton shot the Framing Hanley version my way, I was far more than impressed. When you watch the video however, keep in mind that this version is like a little mini movie, with a plot and the whole nine yards, but the actual songs starts at about 2:20 into the video.
1. Ben Folds – B*tches Aint Shit
This song was the inspiration for this list. It’s everything a rap cover needs to be: make it original without changing lyrics. By far one the best and funniest covers I’ve ever heard… Hands down.
T.I. has been removed from a halfway house to a “different facility” a day after he was released, CNN report. His attorney said that his return is due to prison officials’ objection over his using a tour bus to move between facilities in Arkansas and Georgia. T.I. was being held in the U.S Penitentiary in Atlanta on Friday morning, according to the Bureau of Prison’s online inmate locator.
The rapper had walked out of a federal prison in Arkansas on Wednesday morning, 10 months after he began serving a sentence for violating his parole on a gun conviction. He had been expected to complete the last weeks of his 11-month sentence in a community service center, or halfway house, in Atlanta. Steve Sadow, T.I.’s attorney, said the issue that prompted his client’s latest move related to how the rapper got from the Federal Correctional Center in Forrest City, Arkansas, to Atlanta.
T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris, had agreed to provide his own transportation between the two locales, but federal prison officials are reviewing how he got there — in a tour bus — according to Sadow. A U.S. Bureau of Prisons spokeswoman told CNN Thursday night she was not immediately able to disclose where he was transferred. The bureau’s online inmate locator listed Harris as being “in transit” Thursday evening.
The rapper was joyous in Twitter postings immediately after he walked from the prison Wednesday morning. “The storm is over & da sun back out. IT’S OUR TIME TO SHINE SHAWTY!!!!! Welcome to the beginning of our Happy Ending!!!!” he tweeted. He also immediately began taping a new reality TV show as he boarded his bus, a series that cable channel VH-1 announced just hours after his release.
The as yet-untitled 10-episode series, which will premiere in December, will show T.I. “as he re-adjusts to life as a free man after being incarcerated for nearly a year in a federal prison in Arkansas.” VH-1 said. “Viewers will get a behind-the-scenes look at the most private and personal moments of one of today’s hottest, most sought after Grammy winning artists as he is reunited with his wife and kids and thrust back into society at this crucial juncture in his life,” the channel said.
This was the rapper’s second stint in the Arkansas prison. He served seven months there in 2009 as part of an unusual sentence negotiated two years ago to resolve federal gun charges. Those charges followed his attempt to buy three machine guns in the parking lot of an Atlanta grocery store. His latest stint behind bars was triggered by his arrest, along with that of his wife, after a motorcycle officer stopped their car on Sunset Boulevard in Beverly Hills, California, a year ago. A police report said suspected drugs were found in the couple’s car and they were both arrested on drug charges. While the charge against the rapper was later dropped, he failed a drug test given by his parole officer.
Many of the posts on this blog have come to fruition because of conversations or arguments I have with my friends, and this one is no different. A homegirl of mine in Walnut Creek, CA, made a statement about Hawaiian girls being over rated, and I was a bit taken aback. I’ve dated a Hawaiian girl or two in my yesteryears, and I wanted to prove my friend wrong, so I dug up two of the hottest Hawaiian models I could find in 5 minutes. Both Kailia Williams and Nina Roxanne are incredibly gorgeous natives of the 50th state, and I’d love to get your opinion of who you think is hotter.
The 25 years old model Kalia Willams, is originally from a small town called Haleiwa located on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. Though She is from Hawaii, she’s of mixed backgrounds, (black and white). She even has a twin sister. Kalia left the islands to see what the rest of the world was up to, and landed in San Francisco where her and her twins’s father’s side of the family is from. Afterwards it was off to Toronto where they both worked with a lingerie company (modeling) for about a year, then finally landing in Los Angeles. Kalia has made So. Cal her home for a number of reasons. Most recently, she’s put her mind toward perusing a career in event coordinating and wedding planning alongside modeling.
Nina Roxanne is a 24 year old established model more in the “Import” scene, but she wants to widen her portfolio to other horizons as well. She’s a splendid mix of Filipina, German, Irish and French. Nina grew up in Honolulu Hawaii where she started her modeling career with Island girl calendars and gogo dancing for major events and club nights, which led her to dancing all over the US and Canada. Nina now has since moved to California from Honolulu. Nina has also appreared as one of the girl’s in TI’s “Why You Wanna” and key figure in the Making of the video on MTV.
T.I. played Superman today, talking a suicidal jumper off the ledge. According to TMZ, cops responded to a 911 call about a man who was threatening to jump off a building in downtown Atlanta … the same building where Ryan Cameron’s Radio Show on V103 is based. T.I. heard about the jumper on the radio — and called Ryan Cameron to see if there was anything he could do to help out with the situation. Ryan Cameron tells TMZ … he told T.I. to roll over to the building, where the rapper met with police and recorded a heartfelt video message which cops then played for the man on the roof. After the man saw T.I.’s video he agreed to step off the ledge … and met T.I. in the lobby, where the two were able to talk things out.
