After nearly a week, Philly-bred emcee Meek Mill, whose currently on tour with his girlfriend Nicki Minaj finally responds to not one, but two diss records his rival Drake previously released. The response, “Wanna Know” produced by both Jahlil Beats & Swizz Beatz includes snippets in between bars taking jabs at Drake and his alleged ghostwriting claims (Quentin Miller). Meek was supposed to appear on Funkmaster Flex’s show, but due to touring obligations canceled, which in turn delayed getting his response out sooner. Weigh in below and let us know if Meek’s record was worth the wait. Who’s currently winning this battle on wax?

Def Jam’s latest signee Alessia Cara is currently the talk of town. So much so that she made her late night debut on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon yesterday evening. The 19 year old Canadian songbird performed her single, “Here.” The song pretty much describes a young lady who’s invited to a party, but finds herself not fitting in and feeling uncomfortable being there. The environment is not her cup of tea, but ironically enough she wore a shirt during her performance that read: “Life of the party.” Strange enough huh?

Well it looks like the curtains won’t go up this fall for bad girls K. Michelle and Azealia Banks. Apparently, AB took to Twitter earlier to announce that she received an email from K’s camp stating that she is unavailable this fall due to prior commitments. K. Michelle later explained her reasoning on why she wouldn’t be able to continue with the tour, explaining that she’s busy at work on her third studio album, filming various TV shows and her latest business ventures. She sincerely apologized to her fans and expressed it had nothing to do with low ticket sales or bad blood between herself and Ms. Banks, but rather due to not overworking herself.
Hey Kunts ! I just got an email from @kmichelle team and she is unfortunately unavailable this fall so she is canceling our tour.

R&B newcomer Tiara Thomas is not here for the haters, and she’s making it very clear in her latest video, “On Me.” The record was produced by Ryan “Ryghteous” Tedder. The Indianapolis songstress recently parted ways with Rico Love’s Division1 label, but is signed under Jeff Robinson’s MBK Entertainment (Alicia Keys, Brandy, Elle Varner) company and is currently operating independently as she readies her upcoming EP, Up in Smoke, which will release on August 12.
It’s been almost 2 years since the piped-piper R. Kelly dropped his last album, Black Panties, which went Gold. The hitmaker himself is ready to get back to business and release his 14th studio album, Buffet this fall and based on our recent interview with the Chicago native, there’s a little bit of something for everyone on this project.
“You’ve got Hip-Hop, you’ve got old school music with the Step In The Name of Love type, then you’ve got traditional R. Kelly, sensuous sexual kind of music. It’s just a variety of things, so I call it the Buffet.”
