Ready To Settle Down: Amber Rose Wants To Tie The Knot & Have Kids With Wiz Khalifa

Model and socialite Amber Rose is ready to settle down, tie the knot and have some kids with her rapper boyfriend Wiz Khalifa. They two have been dating for a little over a year now. Global Grind caught up with Rose and she revealed that she is “ready to be a mom.” Rose also talked about marrying Khalifa, rumors and seeking attention. Below are a few excerpts:

Amber Rose On Planning To Marry Wiz Khalifa:

“We’re definitely going to get married and have babies. Not right now because we’re still busy and we still want to enjoy each other first. We want to go on vacation, travel and just enjoy each other company, but he’s definitely the one. We’re definitely going to lay it down and get it done.”

Amber Rose On The Rumors and Lies:

“Worst thing I read about myself, are the countless rumors that are just made up off the top of someone’s head. They don’t care about my life or my livelihood. They were just like ‘Oh there’s nothing going on in the world, let’s make up something about Amber, post it and everyone in the world believed it.'”

Amber Rose On All The Attention:

“I do not like attention at all. I don’t like to be out there. It seems like that because the paparazzi follows me and I’ll get photographed, but I’m always kind of like really low key and they just catch me. I always try to go another way so I’m not bothered or out there. I’m really shy.”

Celebs Style: Rappers In A Snapback Cap [WHO ROCKED IT THE BEST]?

A snapback is a baseball cap style hat. The size of the cap is adjustable by a snap on the back. Tupac and N.W.A are the first people I’ve seen wearing a snapback. I’m a little to young to actually know their music, however I studied their history and style. At one point, snapbacks kind of drifted to the side and everybody started rocking fitted caps. Maybe a few years ago, Tyga, Chris Brown and New Boyz brought back snapbacks. The cap has since crossed over to the Hip-Hop industry. I came up with a list of six rappers rocking snapbacks. Peep my list and vote who rocked a snapback the best below:

Earlier in the summer producer/rapper Kanye West was spotted walking across the street in NYC. He was going to get some sushi at posh eatery Lure Fishbar in SoHo. Yeezy was styling on them lames in a limited edition Prada embroidered monkeys t-shirt, with a pair of mustard yellow pants and some all white Balenciaga sneakers. Also Yeezy was wearing a Just DON Dallas Maverick snakeskin cap.

Back in March, Chris Brown was spotted exiting his hotel room in NYC. Breezy was wearing a pair of $150 Air Jordan Retro 3 sneakers, a Polo Ralph Lauren zip hoodie and a Lakers snapback cap. This fall Breezy will  be embarking on his United States “F.A.M.E. (Forgiving All My Enemies)” tour with Kelly Rowland, Tyga and T-Pain.

Double Up: French Montana & Waka Flocka Are Releasing A Collaborative LP

Nowadays every rapper and their labelmates are so-called releasing a collaborative LP. First it was Jay-Z & Kanye West, then Gucci Mane & Waka Flocka, it’s rumored that Lil Wayne and Drake are doing a collab’d LP, yesterday I reported that Jim Jones announced that he’s working on a collab’d LP with Jim Jones; now French Montana and Waka Flocka are releasing a collab’d LP. French broke the news to MTV.

“I got an album coming out with me and Waka. It’s called Lock Out. It’s gonna be out in five weeks,” French told Mixtape Daily of his new project. “The first single is called ‘I Want It.” It’s crazy. It’s some crunk, like some ‘Choppa Down,’ but on steroids.”

French is also working on his debut LP.

“I got that Excuse My French joint — it’s coming like late this year or early next year — but for now I’m just doing the street album,” he said before talking about the different contracts being thrown his way. “I ain’t gonna let the cat out the bag, but it’s about seven labels right now. So we’re just workin’, lookin’ for the best one.

Earlier in the week, I exclusively reported that Kanye West reached out to French Montana and is interested in signing him to his G.O.O.D. Music label.

Quick Convo: Swizz Beatz Speaks On His Style Of Music, His Catalogue & ‘Haute Living’

Last weekend, producer/rapper and Reebok creative director Swizz Beatz performed at Billboard’s “Summer Blowout” concert. During his set, Swizzy ran through some of the hottest tracks he released and produced like T.I.’s “Bring Em Out,” Jay-Z’s “On To the Next One” and DMX’s “Party Up,” and previews of his new solo material. After his set wrapped, Swizz caught up with Billboard.com to discuss the energy of the crowd at his recent shows. Below are some excerpts:

On his style of music and going through his catalogue. 

The music that I make, I try to make it to where it’s international, whether it’s a street record or a club record,” says the producer. “Being able to perform for different crowds and go through my catalogue, from ’98 to songs that I didn’t even put out yet, it’s a great challenge and it lets you know that you have the right idea, especially when the crowd reacts and goes crazy. So man, it’s a blessing to be able to share all those onstage with the fans.”

 On his new album Haute Living.

I’m not dropping it as an album,” says Swizz. “I don’t wanna do the week thing — I wanna put out every single as a movement. Right now I got ‘International Party,’ which is now the global campaign for Reebok. I got ‘Rock’N’Roll,’ me, Lenny Kravitz, Lil Wayne… I want people to feel every single like it’s an album.”
