Django Unchained's 2Pac & James Brown Music Vid Mashup Is Masterful!

Filed under: Quentin TarantinoOscars

This song is off the chain!

Literally! It's called Unchained and we love it!!!

This marvelous mashup combines the fantastic funk of James Brown's The Payback, the hardcore hook from one of Tupac Shakur's last singles, and the sweet Western twang of a campfire sing-a-long!

Ch-ch-check out the ah-mazing music video (above) from Quentin Tarantino's heavily nominated film!!

Hopefully holographic 2Pac & the holographic Godfather of Soul surprise the world and perform their cut live, so to speak, at Sunday's Oscars! HA!

Lil' Wayne Charts 100th Track On Billboard's Hip-Hop List

Filed under: Music MinuteJay ZLil WayneBusiness BlitzDrake

Lil Wayne Concert Shirtless 100 Hits

One hundred hit songs in 13 years??

That's insane!!

It takes some musicians longer to count that high!!

We're AMAZED Lil' Wayne recorded so many hits so quickly!!

Are you curious which track pushed the New Orleans born rapper over the hump?

French Montana’s Pop That, featuring Weezy, Rick Ross, and Drake — it just debuted at 57 on Billboard's R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart!

Only two other artists have recorded as many chart-smashing tracks in the same category — James Brown (111) and Jay-Z (108).

It took Jay “I own a plane” Z a year longer to hit triple-digits, but he was the lead artist on a much higher percentage of those songs!

Will Weezy eventually li-li-li-lick their records like a lollipop???

Deets On Kate Moss & Jamie Hince's Wedding

kate-moss-jamie-hince-wedding-details.jpg

The final preparations for Kate Moss and Jamie Hince's weekend wedding celebration are underway and thanks to the British press and their need to know every single detail before the big day we have all the deets!

The July 1st wedding will take take place at the supermodel's 10 bedroom mansion in Cotswolds village near Burford.

Guests expected to attend include Kate's good friend and wedding gown designer John Galliano, Naomi Campbell, Sir Philip Green, Vivienne Westwood, Stella McCartney, wedding photographer for the day Mario Testino, Banksy and Jude Law.

Following the ceremony, the 300+ guests will enjoy a formal dinner catered by China Tang, Kate's favorite restaurant at the Dorchester Hotel. For the rest of the weekend, Mossy hired staff from the Ritz Hotel in Paris to oversee the food.

Oh yeah, there will also be plenty of booze, but that was kind of a given, right?

The entertainment portion of the wedding is being billed as Moss-Stock and will include performances from Snoop Dogg, Carl Barat, Iggy Pop and Beth Ditto.

We're already worn out just thinking about Kate and Jamie's wedding!

Lucky for us we'll get to see some of the pictures in Vogue's September issue.

James Brown's Former Producer Battles With Family AND Al Sharpton Over His Estate

Filed under: Music MinuteLegal MattersSad Sad

james-brown-family-fight-over-estate.jpg

It's sad that it's come to this.

James Brown's former producer, Jacque Hollander, is fighting with the deceased star's family AND Rev. Al Sharpton over his estate.

She is suing Brown's children over a settlement agreement that gives his children a share of his $100 million estate - 50% of it to be exact. Hollander says that Brown wanted the majority of his money to go to two trusts, including one for his grandchildren's education and another to fund the "I Feel Good" Trust, which helps fund the education of kids in Georgia and South Carolina.

In his will, he left personal and household items to his six children and wrote that if he failed to mention any other relatives, "such failure is intentional and not occasioned by accident or mistake."

Wow.

His daughter, Deanna Brown Thomas said that she and her siblgings were fighting to overturn the will because they believed that it does not accurately reflect their father's true wishes.

And to make matters worse, Rev. Al Sharpton has gotten involved and is siding with the children because "he was left out of it."

Sources say, "he always felt that he would walk away with a pretty sizeable chunk of James Brown and was left nothing."

UGH. Is there anything that Al Sharpton DOESN'T get involved with??

Just let the poor man rest in peace.

X Factor: Our Favorite Performance Of The Weekend Was….

Filed under: X Factor

Wow! Wow! Wow! Wow! Wow!

Go, Mary! Go, Mary! Go!

We must admit, we were BLOWN AWAY by Mary Byrne's performance on X Factor Saturday night!

It was a revelation!

Prior to this weekend's show, we appreciated her big voice but we also through it was a bit shrill. However, last night she gave a nuanced and command performance of James Brown's classic This Is A Man's World.

Her voice was on-point and everything just gelled!

We find it hard to believe that just a few weeks ago she was working as a cashier at Tesco. She truly came across as a seasoned entertainer this weekend! Not only did she sing the song, but she also interpreted it. She SOLD it!

Mary came across as cool, calm, collected, confident and SEXY! Yes, sexy!

She's like SuBo but with more personality and stage presence!

This was our favorite performance of the evening - by far!

Check out Mary (above)!

Thoughts?????

So she's nuts!

James Brown's daughter LaRhonda Pettit alleged that her father's body was missing from his temporary crypt in South Carolina, but the lawyer who represents 5 of Brown's other children confirms that the body is still there.

He's even still in one of his famous "farewell" get-ups!

Good to know!
