Rap On Broadway

Monday, March 23rd, 2015

Russel Simmons is bringing Rap to Broadway in a Hip Hop inspired musical he is developing. Simmons expects to get his new musical on Broadway in 2016. He’s hired Dan Charnas to pen the script.

Simmons says the musical will have the feel of Love Story meets Public Enemy and will be something he believes the Broadway world will enjoy. He says there will be a mixture of Rap songs as well as free form within the musical.

There have been some mixed reviews with some saying it won’t work. TheWetSeal suggests that recent stink with another rap Broadway musical didn’t work at all, but a different take on Hip Hop with looking at it’s history as the theme of the musical was well received. It’s too soon to tell how this one is going to end up working for Simmons

There are a lot of different people creating musicals and a Rap or Hip Hop one may just hit the mark for Broadway.

Skout Growing More and More

Monday, March 16th, 2015

I was sick and tired of the dating scene, and I really wanted to try something new. I was told about a website, which allowed people to meet other people, from anywhere in the world, so I was interested. I joined the website when I was sitting at my PC, and I decided that I would create a great profile. I added several pictures of myself, in an effort to allow others to really get to know me, and see what I look like. I thought to even add a few sexy pictures of myself, just in case I found a good looking guy.

I created my profile in a matter of minutes, and I was ready to start searching the website. I decided that I would buy some Skout points, because I could use them to purchase some features that the website had to offer. The website offers different ways to contact people, and I can also send greeting to others, in case I’m looking to be friendly. I also am able to find out if someone else has added me as a favorite, so I can really see who likes me, and who doesn’t like me.

I decided to use my Skout points, in order to check on someone else’s favorites list, after I had met a guy that really drew my interest. I did a specific search on the website, and I was trying to find a guy that might interest me. I found a great guy, he looks good, and we ended up having a lot in common, but he’s in another country. I didn’t realize that Skout is available in over 180 countries, and I just so happen to find someone all the way in Australia. I guess I was ignorant to think that I was speaking with somebody in the USA.

I didn’t let the accidental love connection get me down, instead, I decided that I would speak to this person, and try to see what could become of the relationship. I would speak with him first thing in the morning when I got up, because we were in different time zones. Even before I went to sleep at night, he made sure to contact me, just to let me know he was thinking of me. Skout has been so beneficial to my love life, and I think I’m going to meet this guy in person one day.

Ariana Grande Surprises Detroit With A Kiss To Big Sean

Monday, March 9th, 2015

Looks like Detroit got to witness some hot live action from Ariana Grande and Big Sean as they decided to show a little public display of affection, and believe me Detroit is grateful.

On Saturday night, Ariana was having her honeymoon tour stop in Big Sean’s hometown. Dr Jennifer Walden suggests that the two were on stage together singing their song “Best Mistake”, which says is a part of Ariana’s new album My Everything. Needless to say Ariana looked quite good in her outfit, and Sean is one lucky man for having her as his girl.

The two were very private about their relationship in the beginning but are now headed to a whole new direction. They are enjoying all the love that the fans are giving them, and we can’t lie they are cute together.

Right before the show started, Ariana posted a photo of her looking at Sean and saying that the two are together right before the show which gave hints to the fans that he will be a part of the show. Isn’t it nice to be able to get Big Sean to play at your concert whenever you want. It is lucky to be Ariana.

Ariana posted a big thank you to Sean after the show on Twitter by announcing how good of a show it was and how grateful she is that he came and surprised everyone even though he just released a new album and his schedule is full.

Drake Might Be Getting Into Rap Battles

Thursday, March 5th, 2015

After Drake has come on top by releasing an album without any prior notice, and have 14 of the songs on the album make it to the billboard charts, you’d think nothing would peak his interest anymore.

That’s not the case at all because it seems that Drake may be getting himself involved into a rap battle ladies n gentlemen. And to make matters worse, Drake wants to battle non other than the Harlem, New York MC Murda Mook.

Paul Mathieson pointed out that Mook has previously mentioned that is almost went down during the Grammy weekend, reported between him and Drake, and everyone would probably love to see that go down.

Drake unfortunately wasn’t able to make it to the event back in February due to prior commitments he had in his hometown.

Can you believe that the fans almost got to see a Drake and Mook rap battle for free. That would piss off the record labels and waste a lot of money that could be made if the battle was to take place during a live show.

If these two go on stage for a battle, you better be prepared to spend a lot of money to get a piece of the action and fast too, the tickets will most likely sell out before anyone gets the chance to go online and try to buy them.

Drake had a very big year and we never know what he might do next.

Travis Scott Fights A Fan At His Concert

Wednesday, March 4th, 2015

What nobody can makes sense of is, if you don’t like an artist or a certain figure, then why go wait in lines for hours and pay money just to wait 5 hours and in the end act as a hater.

What the video posted on Youtube on Tuusday night shows about the scuffle between Travis Scott and a fan is that while Travis while performing a song as a part of his G.O.O.D. Rodero Tour, a fan tried to snatch the young 22 year old rappers chain as he approached the fans while singing. The video shows a scuffle taking place but it is unclear exactly what happened.

Young Thug appears in the beginning of the video but it is also unclear what he was up to. Travis Scott is not known to fight his fans or anyone, unlike Pitbul who knocked out a fan cold just for coming on stage without an invitation Jaime Garcia Dias recalls.

There is also the Akon incident in which Akon had something thrown at him while performing on stage, and instead of running in to the crowd to fight the fan he invited him up on stage, and as soon as the fan came up, Akon picked him up and threw him back into the crowd.

Good thing the Travis incident wasn’t anything like Afroman’s incident when he punched a female fan who came up on stage and started dancing as he was performing. He was arrested and charged with assault, and later responded about the incident by saying he was retiring from the tour life.

It ain’t easy being a singer.

Can Denver Convince Manning to Take a Pay Cut?

Monday, March 2nd, 2015

All professional football teams adjust rosters annually, as contracts play out and injuries create position problems. This year, the Denver Broncos may be at the top of this list of adjustments. And for Denver, that primary adjust is a financial adjustment. The Broncos shocked the football world a few years ago when they signed Peyton Manning to a three-year deal, with $19 million riding on the last year of the contract. That money is guaranteed on March 9th, leaving the Broncos wondering how to implement some creative salary cap accounting.

Of course, the biggest question in this issue is Manning’s health. Jason Halpern thinks that while Manning has indicated that he wants to play out the final year of his contract and the Bronco’s GM John Elway has concurred the same, the designation of Delmaryius Thomas as the Bronco’s franchise player makes it complicated. His salary for 2015 is approximately $13 million. With the NFL draft and signing season right around the corner, the window for a decision is short.

Many football fans and critics alike expect Manning to retire after the 2015 season. There are several NFL career records clearly within reach for Manning, and there will be little impetus to continue playing. However, the rumor mill in Tennessee and Indianapolis is abuzz with the reported notion that Manning will buy the Tennessee Titans after the 2015 season, along with a “significant” financial partner. Manning has privately expressed an interest in remaining in football as a team owner and GM.
