We absolutely adore Mike Posner!
The man has this incredible ability of taking a song previously recorded by someone else, and making it completely his own when he covers it!
Ch-ch-check out the singer's acoustic performance with Blackbear of the Rick Ross, Drake, and French Montana collaboration Stay Schemin', which is actually samples a previously unreleased track from Nas (above)!
So rad! And actually kind of pretty, stripped down like this!
This just gets us all the more excited for his new album, Sky High!
How about U??
As Chris Brown continues to get more tattoos, his new album is coming out.
This is some DEEP shiz!
We hope Nas is proud of himself. An American concert promoter, named Patrick Allocco, was kidnaped in and held at gun point in Angola simply because the rapper failed to show up for a heavily promoted concert!
You see, the Nas and opening act Jemiah Jai were paid $315,000 to perform two shows in the African country but "missed their flight" and couldn't make the concert.
This really pissed off the people that invested in the the concert, especially since Naz and Jemiah Jai had already been paid. So they did the most business savvy and terrifying thing they could think of: they kidnapped Allocco and his son and held their ransom at $315,000!
After lots of scariness and drama the U.S. Embassy stepped in a bailed out the concert promoter and is boy.
Patrick and his son issued this statement from the local hotel were they are now "in residence":
Sounds like this was a blast!
Celebs in attendance at the event included
Sean Combs is sticking with Diddy.
At least for now.
A rep for the hip-hop mogul said that rumors of Diddy going back to Puffy are "completely untrue."
It was previously reported at an art book launch in L.A. that Diddy would switch to his oldest nickname.
As happy as we are to have new music from her, it's only that much more of a reminder that she'll never be able to make any more.
Check out the first song to debut from Amy Winehouse's upcoming posthumous album, Lioness: Hidden Treasures - which was compiled by producers Salaam Remi and Mark Ronson with the consent of the late singer's family - called Like Smoke, which also features fresh verses from Nas (above)!
Definitely sounds as though this one may have been recorded earlier in her career, during the Frank sessions, but her voice is as flawless and soulful as ever, and the rapping fits well with the tone of the track!
May Amy be at peace.
You're missed, gurl.
