She Is Really Shaking Her A** & Very Flexible: Nicki Minaj “Stupid H*e” Official Video

Platinum-selling female rapper Nicki Minaj recently released the new visual from her single “Stupid H*e,” which is featured on her sophomore album, entitled, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded. The disc is scheduled to drop February 14. Peep the video below:

Last month, Minaj took to her official Twitter account @NickiMinaj to hint a big collaboration for her upcoming disc. “Just got some heron from one of ur fave artists. In the studio shakin my fuckin head right now. WOW. Roman Reloaded,” Minaj tweeted late-last night. “Like. Yall will fcn spazz.”

Even though Minaj hinted that she has a big collaboration on the album, she kept tight-lipped about who this artist is but dropped one clue about the artist. “Never worked w/’them’ b4,” Minaj told one of her followers.

Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded is the follow-up to Minaj’s double platinum debut album Pink Friday. The disc is scheduled to hit stores and online on Valentine’s Day (February 14) and features the singles “Roman in Moscow” and “Stupid Hoe,” for which videos have been filmed.

New York’s 2012 Rising Star: French Montana Talks Being Featured On “Stop Schemin,” Diddy, Akon, His Debut LP & More

New York’s rapper French Montana already created a buzz for himself before inking a deal with Diddy’s Bad Boy label, last December. Montana is one of Hip-Hop’s “2012 Rising Stars.” Jay-Z, Kanye West and Rick Ross were also interested in signing this Bronx native. Montana was heavy on the mixtapes/DVD circuit in NYC. He even released his own DVD’s, entitled Cocaine City, which sold almost one-million copies. The BoomBox caught up with Montana to discuss him being featured on Rick Ross and Drake’s “Stop Schemin,” his take on the Common vs. Drake battle, “Shot Caller,” relocating from Morocco to the U.S.A, success, debut album and more. Below are some excerpts:

You are featured on one of the most talked about songs in the country right now, Rick Ross’ ‘Stop Schemin.” How does it feel to be a dude from the Bronx, N.Y., who is making this kind of noise?

Man, it’s been like a blessing. One day you wake up and you the most hated, and the next day you the most loved. It shows you how much things have turned. Like I said, it’s a blessing for me.

What’s your take on the Drake and Common battle, given they both used the ‘Stop Schemin” record to air out their beefs?

I didn’t really know it was going to happen like that [laughs]. I didn’t even know who was taking shots at who. But big shot-out to Drake. I’ve known Drake for a minute. He’s my brother. And shout out to Rozay. I just stay away from all of that stuff. I’m trying to make music and make some money.

The song ‘Shot Caller’ seems to be one of the few East Coast-sounding records out right now, even down to its sampling of the Lords of the Underground’s early ’90s classic ‘Funky Child.’ And then there’s the video, which was shot in the Bronx and features Fat Joe, Busta Rhymes, Diddy and N.O.R.E. Were you making a New York statement with that song and clip?

I just made it in my own New York state of mind. I can’t really control what goes on out here and what kind of music people make. I just know what I can make. But it’s very New York. And shooting that video [with the artists you mentioned] was a blessing. It’s so humbling. It’s the Bronx. I’m just soaking it in.

This Is A Don Bleek Exclusive: Yandy Smith Of ‘Love & Hip-Hop’ Is Pregnant

Earlier in the week, I reported that one of the cast members from Love & Hip-Hop could be pregnant. I also mentioned that I knew who it was but didn’t reveal which lady is pregnant because of personal reasons. Since it is leaked, I will say that Yandy Smith is three months pregnant. According to Baller Alert, the Harlem talent/music manager is knocked-up by her boyfriend, who was rumored to have robbed Jim Jones. Below is how they’re reporting the story:

Hey BA! Yandy Smith from VH1’s Love And Hip Hop show is keeping a little secret. It turns out she is 3 months pregnant by her boyfriend. The same boyfriend who [allegedly] tried to rob Jim Jones a few months ago.”

They also added, “Yandy doesn’t want to tape the reunion today 1/19 or tomorrow because she is pregnant. Her and momma jones are not cool anymore and she doesn’t want to be upset on the show. VH1 is begging her to be on the reunion.”

The Season finale airs on Monday and we will just have to wait to see if Yandy will do the reunion.
