Earlier in the year, I reported that talent/music manager Yandy Smith of VH1‘s ‘Love & Hip-Hop’ was pregnant by her boyfriend, who was rumored to have robbed Jim Jones. Smith was recently spotted at Club Dolce in New Jersey. The female hustla and her BIG belly sure did partied it up. It’s estimated that Smith is at least five months pregnant. Season three of Love & Hip-Hop should be very interesting. Congrats Yandy!

Keeping It Trill: A$AP Rocky Speaks On Generating His Buzz, Music, Style & Fashion

24-year-old Harlem rapper A$AP Rocky success came overnight, thanks to the Interweb. Every since being introduced to the music industry last spring, Rocky has been keeping it trill with his lyrics, gold grill, Houston influenced flow, expensive taste and dope style. His videos “Purple Swag” and “Peso” combined has over 10-million views on YouTube. His most recent video “Wassup” has the internet going nuts. The video features Rocky in a bathtub with a lot of money, a foreign car, big house, naked women and designer clothes. In October 2011, Rocky signed a $3-million dollar record deal with RCA/Pologrounds. While in Toronto, i-D online interviewed Rocky. Below are some excerpts:

You kind of just came on the scene out of nowhere and immediately generated a lot of buzz, what do you think caught peoples’ attention? I’m this dude from New York talking about this high fashion lifestyle stuff, ignorant stuff and positive stuff all at the same time. It’s just leaving people confused. I like to leave people in a state of mind where they don’t even know what’s going on.  People think I’m illuminati or a devil worshiper because of the “Wassup” video.  People don’t even get the message. So it’s cool. I like people to just wonder, that’s my thing.

You rap a lot about clothes, what’s your first memory of being exposed to fashion? There were these shoes from Alessandro Dell’acqua that I had when I was younger. I also really liked Marc Jacobs.

So how important is fashion to your music? It is what it is. I didn’t realise the importance until people made it a big deal. I’m gonna do this regardless. I might stop name-dropping though. I’m not even gonna rap about brands anymore because I don’t want people to think I’m doing it on purpose. If you see me, you see me; you don’t then you don’t. I don’t even wear stuff with monograms on it because I don’t want people to identify what I’m wearing. I don’t want no name brand tags and labels and all that. You’re supposed to try to figure out, “What does this dude have on right now?” Only a real fashion dude would know.

Who are your five favourite designers right now… This guy right here (points at his jacket) Raf Simons, of course Rick Owens, Jeremy Scott, Alexander Wang and I want to say ksubi.

Love & Hip-Hop: Erica Mena Gives An Update On Her Music Career & Speaks On Being Compared To Amber Rose

After the reunion special of VH1‘s ‘Love & Hip-Hop’, we haven’t heard much from model-turned-singer Erica Mena. On season two of Love & Hip-Hop, she gave the viewers a sneak peek of her singing. This 24-year-old Bronx native is still focusing on pursuing her music dreams and balancing mother duties. In a recent interview with SOHH, Mena gave an update on her music career and spoke about being compared to Amber Rose. Below are some excerpts:

On balancing mother duties, modeling and singing.

“Right now, it’s definitely about the music and trying to figure out what we’re going to be putting out, but I’m really excited,” Mena told SOHH when asked what fans can expect from her in the near future. “I think you guys are going to be surprised and won’t know what to expect is coming from me. I try to dedicate as much time as possible for the music. I try to put in studio time while my son is in school or after he’s home and asleep. It really depends on what’s going on because all of my days are different. Right now, any little bit of studio time for me is liberating. Even if I only get an hour a day, I’m in the studio writing, recording and doing as much as possible. For me, it’s definitely about perfecting the craft and making sure what I deliver is something I feel proud of.”

On being compared to Amber Rose.

“Modeling is always going to be my first love, I’ve been modeling since I was 16, so it’s been a big part of my life,” Mena added. “I think where I’m coming from with the music is definitely going to be different. I’m not really worried about being compared to someone like Amber Rose. Her style and work ethic right now is amazing. I don’t find it insulting to be compared to Amber Rose. I love her. I definitely think once people hear the sound, I think I’ll be able to build my own category of my own.”

Owwww, The Wave Isn’t Over Yet: French Montana Says Max B Was NOT Denied On His Appeal & His Court Date Is Coming Up

Yesterday morning (Wednesday (February 29), rumors hit the Internet and I also posted that former Byrdgang/Dipset rapper Max B’s appeal has been denied according to the CEO of his record label. As I reported, DJ Next of Amalgam Digital tweeted the news, Tuesday (February 28). Those rumors were officially false. Somehow there was a miscommunication which resulted in that information being incorrect. Max-B’s good friend French Montana spoke to him last light and confirmed that those rumors were false. Peep Montana’s tweet below:

Max also forwarded a statement to AllHipHop.com in regards to the issue. “This was just a test from God. A battle cry..a call to arms,” Max B. told AllHipHop.com. “I’m bullet proof. And I’m coming out on my grown man s**t.”

In 2009, Max-B, born Charly Wingate, was Convicted of felony murder, aggravated manslaughter, kidnapping, armed robbery and conspiracy. The charges are tied to a 2006 botched robbery attempt of two men in a Fort Lee, New Jersey Holiday Inn. He was sentenced to 75-years in prison. Max-B will be releasing his autobiography The Wavy Baby, later this year. In his upcoming memoir, Max-B will discuss his life, growing up in Harlem, and personal relationship with Jim Jones and Chrissy.
