Long Hair, Don’t Care: Amber Rose’s New Hairdo

Ha! She switched it up on you hoes. Over this past weekend, model and actress Amber Rose was spotted in Atlanta at the Tabernacle. She was there to watch her boyfriend Wiz Khalifa and rapper Snoop Dogg perform some tracks for the their new soundtrack, Mac & Devin Go To High School from their upcoming movie with the same name. Amber Rose was sporting a new hairdo. This time, she was wearing a long black wig. I think the long black hair on Amber is so sexy. Rose was also wearing a white blazer, denim daisy dukes, and a pair of wolford tights.

Rose is also in the studio working on an album. “I’m still in the beginning stages of it right now. I’m working hard. I’m in the studio every single day. I’m just really inspired and motivated,” Amber Rose told The Juice. “My music is like house-club music, fun dance music. I’m singing, I’m rapping, I’m talking a little shit.”

Show & Prove: A$AP Rocky’s Music Spread In XXL Magazine

Harlem’s rapper A$AP Rocky has a spread in the December/January issue of XXL magazine. He is featured in the “Show & Prove” section. Take a look at the excerpt above and be sure to pick up your own copy at news stands today. I swear, this dude is dope. I support the A$AP movement. I believe Rocky is one of the new faces of NY Hip-Hop. I respect him a lot because he came into this industry with a style of his own and wasn’t trying to sound like the average New York rapper. Last month, Rocky released his debut mixtape, entitled LiveLoveA$AP. In October, Rocky signed a $3 million record deal with Polo Grounds Music/RCA Records. This past summer, the 23-year-old rapper became popular and made a name for himself with his singles “Purple Swag” and “Peso,” which gathered millions of views online and is in heavy rotation on New York’s radio station Hot 97.

Trouble Man: T.I. Speaks On The Tracks He Recorded For His New Album

Rapper T.I. is busy working on his new album, as well as promoting his new docu-style show T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle. Since being released from prison this past September, T.I. recorded over 50 tracks for his upcoming album Trouble Man, which will be released February 2012. T.I.’s first post prison released single “I’m Flexin’” proved that he is indeed back. The recently surfaced club banger “Pyro,” and the title track “Trouble Man,” which features a sample of Marvin Gaye‘s 1972 Motown hit “Trouble Man” are making it rounds to urban radio stations across the country. MTV recently caught up with T.I. Below are some excerpts from their interview:

On the tracks he recorded for Trouble Man.

“My life inspires my lyrics at all times, so at that moment in time, when I first came home, I have about 15 songs just totally focusing on that,” T.I. said. “Out of those 15, I probably picked the two or three most significant, most compelling, impactful ones, and after I’ve been out for a minute, then I’ve got records totally focusing on speaking to people who can only focus on that and telling them I’m ready to move on.”

The title of T.I.’s album is inspired by a 1972 Marvin Gaye song of the same name.

The name of the album is Trouble Man, and every song on here is about things that can get me in trouble,” he explained. “I’m reminiscing on the days when I used to run wild and do my thing the way I used to do it. I’ve got records that are just totally intellectually ignorant.”

On his late album No Mercy.

I was able to release a project that did well considering the circumstances, but I wasn’t able to put my all into it, which made it only a fraction of my usual contribution to the game,” he said.
