Jeezy Joins Jay-Z’s Roc Nation MANAGEMENT; Juelz Santana Is Signing To Birdman’s Rich Gang/YMCMB


Despite having issues with his current label, Def Jam. Multi-platinum rapper Jeezy joined forces with Jay-Z and is now signed to Roc Nation management. The news was announced via Jay-Z’s site Life + Times. Details about the deal are still unclear as the time of the press, but expect a lot of business ventures and endorsements in the coming months.


Jeezy isn’t the only rapper that’s having issues with his label, Def Jam. Harlem’s own Juelz Santana is also going through it with the prominent Hip-Hop label. He sent out a few tweets venting about his problems with the label. He still doesn’t have a release date for his long-awaited forthcoming LP, Born 2 Lose, Built 2 Win. Back in September, Birdman confirmed via MTV’s RapFix that he was in the process of signing a well-known established rapper from New York who had already released major albums to his Rich Gang/YMCMB imprint. I can attest that the rapper is Juelz Santana. The deal should be finalized by the end of 2013 and an announcement should be made in the coming weeks.

Christina Milian For Rolling Out Magazine; Speaks On ‘The Voice,’ Forthcoming LP & Motherhood


Singer, actress and media personality Christina Milian has a lot on her plate. She is in the studio working on her YMCMB debut, serving as the social media correspondent for The Voice, recently shot a commercial for Viva Diva Wines (she has an equity stake of ownership in the company), and of course she is a mother. However, the 31-year Jersey City-bred cleared her busy scheduled for a fashion shoot with Rolling Out. She also sat down with journalist Terry Shropshire for an interview. For this issue, Jas Prince’s girlfriend was styled by celebrity stylist Olori Swank and shot by famed photographer DeWayne Rogers. In the photos, Milian posed in a grey dress and silver floor length gown. Below are some highlights:


On being the social media correspondent for The Voice:

“I have a lot of fun doing what I do. At the end of the day, l love to talk, I love music, I love watching artists really striving and really reaching their dreams. And being a part of that is really special to me. For me, I get to do all the behind-the-scene interviews and give the fans all the exclusive content you can’t find anywhere. It’s a lot of fun. I love the coaches. We have an awesome set and I feel very fortunate that my Twitter account and my Instagram and anything online just continues to grow constantly because of the show,” she says.

On her forthcoming LP:

“I have a good team around me. With this album, I have Young Money and this is great because they are the first team of people that understood that I needed a family, that I don’t feel like I’m out here on my own. There’s a difference with being with a label and being out on your own, like, ‘hey, I run this and no one else is with me.’ Let’s be real; there’s nothing better than having a family to back you up. And that’s how Young Money is. And we have the best of the best. We have Drake, we have Nicki, we have Tigga. We have so many people on that label so that when the music comes, it can only make it better,” says Milian.

On how she reacted when she found out that she was with child:

“I wasn’t scared. I was excited when I found out I was pregnant. Of course, when you find out that first time, you’re like ‘Oh my God! My life is changing. From here on out my life has changed.’ And then you realize that miracle that is inside of you and what’s happening. Even the ups and downs outside my pregnancy, I enjoyed each and every moment of my pregnancy. And the second that I had her, I knew that it was meant to be. Like I never questioned God and I knew that everything was happening for a reason. Now if you had asked me before I was pregnant and before I was married to The-Dream, I thought that I would never have a baby at this time in my life. But everything fell into place,” she says.

Keeping It All Music: Mack Maine Confirms That There Is NO YMCMB/G.O.O.D. Music Beef & Compares Pusha To A Fly

Because of the ongoing feud between Pusha T and Drake/Lil Wayne, some people thought that there was going to be a G.O.O.D. Music/YMCMB beef but when Lil Wayne released his new track “My Homies Still” Ft. Big Sean, many people had second thoughts and doubted that there will be a beef. It all started because last week, Pusha T released “Exodus 23:1″ Ft. The Dream (dissin Drake) and YMCMB and Lil Wayne replied with “Goulish (Pusha T Diss). However Young Money’s President Mack Maine confirmed to MTV that there is NO beef in a recent interview. Below are some excerpts:

On is there’s a YMCMB/G.O.O.D. Music beef:

“It’s not like that. I don’t see it like that. That’s not what we in the game for,” Young Money president Mack Maine told MTV News of a potential G.O.O.D./YMCMB dustup. “If it ever came to that, God forbid, that’s a whole different story, but right now we’re just tryin’ to get paper, we’re just tryin’ to get money, man, and make good music. And that was a great song that was made before that situation happened, and I’m not ’bout to go into the studio and tell Wayne to take [Big Sean] off. Wayne not tryna take him off — he’s good peeps, he’s fam.”

On Weezy’s track “Goulish” dissin Pusha T:

“It’s crazy — I can’t front. Unbiased opinion: It’s crazy. I hope the world feels the same,” Mack said before commending Big Sean for his recent guest appearances with G.O.O.D. Music, Meek Mill, Chris Brown and now Weezy. “He killed it. I think that’s big for him. We’re always collabin’ with people and he earned it, he earned his way. He’s been handling his weight on different tracks, and it’s his time.”

More on “Goulish” and comparing Pusha T to a fly:

So what about “Goulish”? “In a nutshell, if a gnat or a fly keep flyin’ around you, eventually you gonna swing and swat it and just get it out the way,” Mack said, using an analogy in which Pusha would play the insect. “Sometimes you swat it and the gnat dies; sometimes it just go away. … You can keep flyin’, just fly somewhere else, though. We chillin’.”
