{September 16, 2010}   Kanye West Covers XXL (Oct. 2010)

The monster who’s most loved and hated, will not only take the cover of next month’s issue of XXL, but Kanye also penned his own cover story and creative directed a 40 page section of the magazine. The issue hits newsstands on September 28. Until then check out this excerpt below.

“I knew I wasn’t in a great spot publicly after the incident, but I would just block it out and work as hard as possible and let my work be my saving grace. In a way, I had thrown a Molotov cocktail at my own career, and it gave me an opportunity, for the first time, to go away and find out who I was. Because I felt very alone.”

{September 10, 2010}   Jay-Z Speaks On Signing Willow Smith

After 12 years of announcing the entrance of the horses at the Belmont Stakes, Frank Sinatra’s classic song  “New York New York” is being retired.

Well Jay-Z calls himself the “new Sinatra” in his New York anthem “Empire State of Mind”, now his song is actually replacing Sinatra’s classic and will be played as the horses are brought out on the track for the 142nd Belmont Stakes horse race.

This a sign of the times…people are more accepting of change and are embracing the hip-hop culture more than ever before…I love it!

R&B singer Trey Songz recently spoke about the possibility of recording a collaboration song with Young Jeezy and Jay-Z.

According to Songz, fans should reach out and ask Jay-Z about the record.

Now that his dream has become a reality, what are the chances of a collabo between him and his Mob Squad partners in crime? “Ask Jay,” he jokes. “We’ve spoken about collaborations–Jay, Jeezy, and I–and hopefully it all works out. I’mma do my part. I got a record to play [Jay]. We’ll see what it is.” (Rap-Up)
Jay-Z protegé Memphis Bleek recently shared his thoughts on the rapper’s Mob Squad members.

“You know this dude Jay got an endless list of hits and that’s what makes me say I need some new joints,” Bleek said about Hov’s touring gigs. “It’s been cool, you know I knew Trey for a little while before when I was doing the club dates with him, now, to see him come and do his thing like he’s doing now, it’s just like come on, I’m always happy to see somebody gradually grow to a bigger success than they started, you know what I mean? Then Jeezy? Come on, that’s the homie, he make me feel like, I left my team at home but like I got another rider out here on the road with me.” (”Jenny Boom Boom TV”)
Earlier this month, Jay confirmed speculation that a record was in the works.

“Yeah, the Mob Squad, I’m trying to put that together,” Jay told radio personality Greg Street. “Trey made a song, I’m just trying to refine the hook so we can get our first song out there. I don’t know if Jeezy heard it yet so I’m probably gonna surprise him with this but we got [it.] Mob Squad.” (V-103 Atlanta)
Last January, it was Trey who hinted at a possible collaboration with Jay and Jeezy being on the table.

“The way Jay explained it to me, he wanted to give people the best show possible,” Songz said in an interview about the tour. “They could have easily done it by themselves and it’d be great. But [Jay] wanted to give the best show. All of us bring a separate aspect to the table, making it a great show all the way. I’m there for the ladies, of course. Then I bring an R&B soul vibe and my hip-hop. Jeezy got the streets. And Hov is Hov. It’s definitely all in the talks [as far as collaborations.] It’s the Mob Squad. Me, Jay, Jeezy, we plan on working together while we on this tour because the energy we have together when we get around each other is amazing. And like I said, all aspects like that on a record is amazing. Maybe while we out on the road we get it done.” (MTV)

Well, I’m excited because that would definately be a crazy collabo!

Here are photos from Jigga and Trigga’s visit to the White House  on Wednesday March 3rd.

Hov even brought Bey and her mama, Tina Knowles along for the trip.

Writing via Twitter, Trey Songz confirmed their visit to the White House.

“DC chillin,” he wrote Wednesday. “Had the honor of meeting Barack

Obama today – Surreal – GOD bless The President and his family. @oneflynerd when he told me “Congratulations on all your success, I’m proud of you” @kauaib0y808 incredible right?” (Trey Songz’s Twitter)

According to The Washington Post, Jay revealed his recent visit to the White House at his concert on Wednesday.

“I just came from the White House,” he told the audience at the Verizon Center on the Washington, D.C., stop of his Blueprint 3 tour.

Hov made the remark during the last minutes of his concert. Officials confirmed to The Washington Post on March 4th that President Barack Obama had indeed met with Jay and the two chatted briefly.

According to MTV News, in an overseas interview in February, Jay-Z revealed that when he once called President Obama, he heard BP3 playing in the background.

“Barack loves hip hop. When I called him he was playing Blueprint in the gym,” Jay-Z said.

From Marcy projects to the White House…go head Jay!!!
