(AllHipHop News) Today (Jan. 9), Percy "Master P" Miller, directly reached out to AllHipHop to explain the details surrounding the cancellation of a New Years Eve appearance in Dubai, UAE. "I love my fans in Dubai, they have been loyal to me and No Limit," said Master P, but declares that, "breach of contract," is a reason why he didn't visit Dubai for New Years Eve.
The family focused entrepreneur insists, "I normally don't do shows on New Years, I'm with my family." The opportunity to perform in Dubai on New Years Eve was pitched to P by a long-time associate. Eventually Master P was persuaded to do the show. For a time, P worked with a Dubai-based promoter. The promoter also wanted to add Snoop Dogg to the bill. The music mogul then agreed to reach out to the Doggfather's camp.
"I talked to Snoop personally, and he said that he was booked for New Years in Las Vegas. My team reached out to Snoop's management and tried to find other dates but they were not interested, which I informed the promoter," said Master P. On Dec. 4, Master P received a surprising text message from Snoop's management team. Due to its content it instantly alarmed the veteran businessman. It contained a picture of a flier purporting that both he and Snoop were performing in Dubai on NYE.
The promoter informed Master P that the scheduled show would continue with the international artists that were slated to perform. Get this - that same promoter then requested assistance from P to secure an American artist for the line-up. "He begged if I could reach out to Rihanna, Pharrell, or Flo Rida, which I did out of good faith but that didn't work out either," said Master P, "Flo Rida's management team told me that the Dubai promoter only sent them part of the deposit and two days before the show." The Dubai promoter emailed them a cancellation notice of the show due to death in the family, this according to P.
Disappointed that he didn't get to perform for his supportive Dubai fans, Master P, closed with the following statement. "My advice to any artist performing internationally, get your total fee upfront. We have forwarded all adequate information to U.S. intelligence to assure International security. My attorneys are prepared to handle any legal matters and disputes that may arise out of this. As a business man, my intentions always are to do good business locally or internationally."

(AllHipHop News) Billboard magazine sparked heated debate with its "10 Greatest Rappers Of All Time" list. Both fans and artists offered their thoughts about the selections and omissions. Ty Dolla Sign addressed the controversial list during an interview with Hot 97.
Billboard provided the following explanation for why the selections were chosen:
Diehard fans, music nerds and critics love lists. But in rap, rankings like this take on a special level of import: aside from moving a crowd (shouts to Rakim), MC means proving you're the best. In no other genre do artists so blatantly express their desire to outdo competition. That made Billboard's editorial list a more high-stakes undertaking than usual. Many favorites - Kane, Drake, KRS - didn't make it, and each of those omissions hurts deep down. Note: we're ranking these folks as MCs, not artists. That's why Dr. Dre and Kanye West, for example, two legendary producer-rappers who don't match the mic skills of those listed here, were left out. Even Tupac, perhaps the most influential rapper ever globally, is arguably known more for great songwriting than dominant bars.
It seems that description was not enough to satisfy rap legend Snoop Dogg. The West Coast representative took to Instagram to blast the list. But not because Billboard omitted his name. Uncle Snoop took issue with his "2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted" rhyme partner 2Pac being snubbed.
Roc Nation spitter Jay Electronica offered a different take on Billboard's G.O.A.T emcees. Instead of outright chastising the publication, Jay E decided to share the article's two authors (Steven J. Horowitz and Alex Gale) with his Twitter followers.
