Singer and actress Brandy is covering the May 2012 issue of Upscale magazine. On the front page, Brandy is looking flawless in a black dress. In the cover story, the platinum-selling singer and successful actress talks about her upcoming LP, entitled Two-Eleven, musical comeback, and the negative press directed towards her little brother Ray-J. Below is an excerpt where she talks about Ray-J.
“I know who he is. And I’m pissed off about some of the things I’ve been hearing. It really bothers me that [those are] the kind of things that people do for money. He’s misunderstood. This is a man who loves his mama and his sister and his niece.”
Musically, the world was introduced to Jay-Z’s childhood friend Emory Jones on Jay’s song “Do U Wanna Ride?” off Kingdom Come. The two grew up together in Brooklyn’s Marcy Projects. Today, Emory is working as an executive assistant at Roc Apparel Group. Whenever, I am able to attend the New Jersey Nets game (I live about 15 minutes from the Prudential Center where the Nets play at), I sometimes see Emory and Jay-Z there, sitting court side. Emory is also the mind behind his South Beach flavored New Balance 999. “Jones and Pimp My Kicks came together to restart the South Beach theme, focusing on contrasting grey, black and aqua blue with pink laces and stitching as well as a touch of speckling on the midsole. This shoe is Part One of the PMK x Emory Jones Private Stock Collection,”-said CounterKicks. At the release/preview party Jones was rocking a Dolo Clothing tee-shirt with a pair of his New Balance 999 “South Beach”. Be sure to visit Dolo online shop over at DoloClothing.Com.

One thing that I don’t like is when these new music artists take shots at/diss legends. Lil Kim is a legend and this new chick Azealia Banks should pay homage. Every time she is in the news, it’s because she is taking shots/dissing another rapper. In the past she dissed T.I., Nicki Minaj and Iggy Azalea. Where is her music? She should let her music speak for her. In fact, who is this chick? I’ve NEVER heard of her! Now she is starting a phony beef with veteran rapper Lil Kim. As always, Azealia Banks took to Twitter, where she tweeted a series of negative tweets directed at Lil Kim. A couple of weeks ago, this is the same chick that was praising Lil Kim and lied and said that Lil Kim will be feature on her new mixtape Broke With Expensive Taste. Apparently, that’s false! Lil Kim publicist CJ Carter released a statement to popular site AllHipHop.Com. Read the statement below:
“Earlier today a press release went out making a claim that there was friction between Hip Hop Icon “Lil Kim” and aspiring hip artist azealia banks. The release comes as a surprise to our team,being that my client and azealia have NEVER spoke to one another or met AT ALL. Kim was actually very flattered azealia’s public admiration for her, which is why it’s so hard to understand how someone who claims to be a true Lil Kim fan could flip the script so easily on someone who was supposedly their idol. It is also VERY interesting that NO ONE from her team made any attempts to reach out to anyone from our team to voice any concerns or problems that they may have had. I have NEVER heard of anyone having a conflict with someone they have NEVER met with or personally spoke with. We have no idea what they are referencing and have no desire to discuss the matter any further as there is nothing to talk about. It honestly seems that someone from azealia’s team would rather have her fans buy into manufactured drama instead of buying music. Kim knows nothing of any beef, and furthermore has had nothing but nice things to say about her. We don’t know what this is and will not address this any further. It seems that this is another sad attempt by someone trying to use my client for publicity. We wish her nothing but the best.”
