For any J Cole fan, this is a must see!! It will def make you appreciate him even more!
D’Angelo surprises everyone with the release of his first album in nearly 15 years, “Black Messiah”. The follow-up to 2000′s Voodoo hit iTunes on Sunday night and shocked even me.
The 12 tracks, which he recorded with his band The Vanguard, include the lead single “Really Love” and funky “Sugah Daddy,”.
D’Angelo addressed the controversial album title. “It’s about people rising up in Ferguson and in Egypt and in Occupy Wall Street and in every place where a community has had enough and decided to make change happen,” he said in a statement. “Not every song on this album is politically charged (though many are), but calling this album Black Messiah creates a landscape where those songs can live to the fullest.”

26 year old Rihanna has been named Creative Director of Puma. According to WWD, she will oversee the direction of the sporting brand’s womenswear line.
The singer got right to work, flying to Puma’s headquarters in Herzogenaurach, Germany, on Monday to meet with the design team and pick out colors, styles, and discuss the line’s direction.
As part of a multi-year partnership, Rihanna will take a hands-on approach with Puma’s fitness and training line, including apparel as well as shoes.
She “will work with Puma to design and customize classic Puma styles as well as create new styles to add to the Puma product portfolio,” the company said in a statement.
In her new role, she will also act as Puma’s global brand ambassador, joining Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt and football star striker Mario Balotelli, and star in Puma’s fall 2015 ad campaign.
“Signing Rihanna is a fantastic step for Puma,” said Puma’s chief executive officer Bjørn Gulden. “Her global profile, her charisma and individuality, her ambition—all these things make her a perfect ambassador for our brand. With a strong portfolio in football, running and motorsport, finding an inspiring partner for women’s training was very important. Rihanna was a natural choice for us. We’re delighted to have her as a partner, and we’re looking forward to what’s to come.”
Word on the block is that Lil Wayne is working on releasing a mix tape “Sorry 4 the Wait 2″ soon to hold fans over until the release of Tha Carter V.
Earlier this month, Wayne took to Twitter to reveal that Tha Carter V won’t be released because Birdman and Cash Money refuse to put it out.
The album, which will be released in two parts, has no current release date, but Mack Maine did say that it would arrive in the first quarter of 2015. He also remains optimistic about Wayne’s future with YMCMB.
“I pray that everything works itself out,” said Mack. “It’s getting handled as we speak.”
His soundtrack “Blame It On the Streets” is now in stores.It includes a 30-minute short film, which YG stars in and co-wrote, and a 10-track album featuring Mack 10, Nipsey Hussle, and The Neighbourhood…. Check out the video for his DJ Mustard-produced joint “2015 Flow.”
Word on the block is that Tink will be taking over in 2015…. At least Timbaland is sure of it…meet his 19-year-old protégée from Chicago..After being introduced through Da Internz, Timbaland signed Tink to his label Mosley Music Group, where she will release her debut in 2015. “I will put my whole entire money in my account on her. She is a superstar,” he said.
Iggy Azalea has topped the Billboard charts, won two American Music Awards, and scored four Grammy nominations in the past year—and she has no plans of stopping. She just announced that she will be going on tour in 2015, “The Great Escape Tour” with special guest Nick Jonas.
