Vincent_Powell_American_Idol

“It doesn’t matter what type of song you perform. What matters is the message.” These are wise words from vocal artist Vincent Powell, who had the opportunity to share his message of love to millions people this year with the platform of American Idol. Though Vincent was not crowned the victor, the Houston native still made quite the impact drawing responses from celebrity judges like “that hit me somewhere,” “finally,” and “the show started right here.” With comments like that as well as Vincent’s vocal ability and drive, you know that we certainly haven’t seen the last of him yet.

Kendrick Lamar seems to be one of hip-hop’s latest saviors. The critical acclaim and fan praise still continues to pour in over his sophomore studio album, Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City, and is showing no signs of slowing down. His ability to illustrate the story of his life growing up in Compton so that the listener can visualize everything that he describes is just one of the reasons that Lamar has become a breath of fresh air for the world of hip-hop.

I immerse myself in every album the same as I do when I watch a movie. Each record is like a dream. The vibrant sounds of Yeezus come through singing, screaming, and spitting at me like an echo in a hollow chamber.

Rapper Kurupt has released a statement following the shocking death of his former fiancee Natina Reed, calling her passing a “tremendous loss.”

v42_jayzFor the last concert of Jay-Z’s eight-night run at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, not only did the rapper allow the show to be live-streamed (via his new Life and Times YouTube channel), but he brought out the wifey, Beyonce Knowles.

“I’m so proud to be here,” said Beyonce as part of her “Diva”-“Crazy In Love” medley — with hubby Jay joining the singer for the latter number, as he did on the 2003 track.

v38_atlanta2The numbers are in, and based on the results, audiences love drama.

The finale episode of ‘Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta,’ featuring love triangles and relationship issues with K. Michelle, Stevie J, Joseline, Mimi, Lil Scrappy, Erica Dixon, and Buckey attracted over six million viewers, making it the highest rated episode in the series history.
