Written by thejasminebrand in Blog

Tuesday evening, links to Nicki Minaj’s upcoming album, Pink Friday, seemed to be circulating. I briefly listened to a few songs, but haven’t listened to enough of it to form an opinion. My question is, is she aware that it’s leaked yet?

Check two songs off of her album

Quote of the Day…DMX, “F*ck Jay-Z.” + DMX Backpeddles, Planning to Apologize

Written by thejasminebrand in Blog

Compliments of Hip-Hop Wired, we’ve learned that during a recent Arizona, DMX went ape sh*t and expressed his content for Jigga.

He told the crowd, “From New York to AZ,” DMX rapped. “N**gas must be crazy, I’m a dog, f*ck Jay-Z!”

We are now hearing from DMX’s team that he (DMX) is planning to apologize. DMX’s manager, Nakia Walker, told XXL, “Jay called Swizz and Swizz called us and we’ve been on the phone, back and forth over the last couple of days. He was just freestyling, he doesn’t feel that way at all; not at all.”
