Stirring. "This Bitter Land" is a bit o' provocation from the soundtrack for "The Land" (as in CleveLAND), the forthcoming coming-of-age skater movie being produced by Nas and Machine Gun Kelly. The former teams up with Erykah Badu on this track you gotta take at least two listens to.
Ja tells TMZ ... he and Ashanti have decided to change the original tour name, Natural Born Killers, because they thought it would be "insensitive to the families of the victims" of senseless violence. Ja reposted a promo for their 12-show tour with the word "Killers" crossed out. It's now called the Natural Born Tour. (TMZ)
Last year, the R&B veteran revealed how close rap star Jay Z came to landing on her "Foolish" smash.
"[Irv] called him, he sent Jay the record and Jay was like, 'I'm in.' He said, 'I wanna get on the record.' I don't know if he came up to office or what, but Irv changed his mind. He was like, 'You know what? That's typical. I'm not gonna do the typical R&B record and get the big rapper to co-sign it.' He said, 'I'm gonna make her write an ill verse.' And that's how that came about." (VLAD TV)
"I played him records from the album, he was super excited for me. We're definitely gonna do something. Right now, we're kind of like on our paths of-you know we haven't put music out in a long time, so we kind of want to reestablish our own lanes first and then do something amazing together. Because the thing about it is, our chemistry is just so organic, it really doesn't take a lot. If we get in the studio, we're good, you know what I mean? So, we're both really, really excited and happy for each other." (Complex TV)

God Is Us.

"Power" actress Naturi Naughton recently talked about her feelings toward rap veteran Lil' Kim and revealed she had no idea why a beef between them exists.
In a new interview, Naturi suggested her past portrayal as Kim in 2009's Notorious biopic ultimately sparked the friction.
"The shade is real. I don't understand it. I wish, you know what Marc, maybe you can find out why. All I know is I had the pleasure and honor of playing Lil' Kim in the film Notorious. I would love to have her, some kind of affinity - the thing is I was a first-time actress in a film. This was the beginning of my career. I'm a little black girl from Jersey, why not uplift and support that? I've always loved and appreciated her work and I wish her nothing but the best." (VH1 Live)
Naturi had revealed off air that Lil Kim tried to keep her away from herself during VH1's "Hip Hop Honors: All Hail The Queens" show last night. Why? Well, Kim - who was being honored - is still salty about Naturi portraying her in the Biggie biopic Notorious. (The YBF)
Naughton has kept busy over the past few weeks promoting the return of her "Power" series.
With his iPhone in hand, the animated MC runs through Central Park in his hometown of NYC screaming out his signature ad libs, and almost gets hit by a city bus while throwing out Poké Balls. In between hopping fences and running through fields, he gets recognized by fans. (Rap-Up)
Music mogul Jermaine "JD" Dupri recently talked about his relationship with Jay Z and revealed Young Hov has a new album in the works.
Although slim with his words, Dupri announced Jigga has a follow-up to 2013's Magna Carta Holy Grail album coming.
"Me and Jay have, like, conversations that I'm sure I'm probably sure he don't have with nobody else because that's how we met each other," JD said. "Our relationship from 'Money Ain't A Thing' came from him taking something on a mixtape that I heard that he did repeating, 'I'm gonna make you dance,' something he said that sounded like what I did on the Dru Hill [song 'In My Bed'] like, 'Oh, dude be listening to me.' I'm thinking this is, 'Can't Knock The Hustle' dude - I've spoken to Hov, even at the Beyoncé concert. I know the name of Hov's new album and everything right now. [laughs] Yeah, like, me and him, we're good. [Will I get a beat on there?] It might be done. I'm just saying. I don't know." (Rap Radar)
Sources confirmed exclusively to Page Six that Jay and Bey's surprise album is complete, and it will drop on his streaming service Tidal very soon. One source told us, "Jay and Beyoncé were never going to do an interview to address all the questions that came up after 'Lemonade.' It's more their style to respond through music." (Page Six)
Long before there was Lemonade, Beyonce and Jay Z attempted to put out a joint album, sources tell Billboard, and the power couple still may see the project through in the near future. According to a source, Jay Z and Beyonce had "nearly finished" a record together but never quite did. "The label wouldn't agree to the joint album," says an insider of Beyonce's longtime home at Columbia Records, a subsidiary of Sony Music. But a Sony source counters that claim, insisting that the company is "open to" partnering with the husband-and-wife team for such a project. (Billboard)
Sean Carter, aka Jay-Z, is allegedly already at work on a new album, which explores his side of the marital schism Beyoncé's Lemonade covered. This news, of course, is according to US Weekly, so until we hear it from Mr. Carter's lips, we should probably take it with a pinch of lemon juice. (Ugh, sorry) Regardless of the validity in this claim, do we really need to hear Jay's side? (PAPER Mag)
Ray Rice says ... if an NFL team signs him this year, he'd donate EVERY PENNY to charity. The former running back told USA Today's Tom Pelissero he would specifically give to organizations with programs focusing on education and prevention of…
Man WHAT? Countless survivalist shows all over TV will demo making fire with sticks, each sure to tell you how hard it is. But for this dude Kap... child's play. Watch and learn, rookies. Then see how he flips the skills and breaks it down for the ladies. Putting that primal game down to 'em... like... if your man doesn't smell like that real smoke, he is not 'cooking' for you. That smoke is older AND spicier than Old Spice, too. Hahaa!
But the real question: Who weaved up that grass headband?? Don't act like you wouldn't rock that on some tropical 'ish!
Hip Hop artists in Houston flexed their financial muscle on Tuesday (July 18) as they opened accounts at the black-owned, Unity National Bank. Artists present included Slim Thug, Paul Wall, Willie D, and Trae The Truth.
New York rap veteran KRS-One recently shared his thoughts on the controversy surrounding hip-hop icon Afrika Bambaataa and why critics should seriously reconsider their interest in the genre.
In a new interview, KRS explained why Bambaataa's contributions to hip-hop make him iconic despite being recently accused of past child molestation incidents.
"When you're talking about Afrika Bambaataa, first of all, you're talking about the person who invented hip-hop. Not participated in it. There was no hip-hop before Afrika Bambaataa. Let's start there. So anyone who has a problem with Afrika Bambaataa should quit hip-hop."
"I never abused nobody. It just sounds crazy to people to say that, hear 'you abused me.' You know my thing is you know all my people back then, you know the hundreds of people that been around me. If something like that happened, why you never went to none of them?" (Fox 5)
Bambaataa's lawyer, Charles Tucker, blasted the decision as a public relations move. Certain members pressured Bambaataa to take some type of public action because they fear funding for Zulu Nation programs will dry up. Zulu Nation said its changes include "providing support for victims of abuse, rape and molestation and working more closely on other social issues existing in communities such as drug addiction, alcoholism and mental health," the group said. (New York Daily News)
"He's a f*cking pedophile and this is coming from his former bodyguard," Lord Shariyf. "Absolutely. This is a well-known fact in the Zulu Nation. In the inner circle. Me being his former bodyguard - there were many instances where I saw young boys in and out of his room - I hope my homebody [name not given] is listening because he was one of those young boys who Bambaataa had come to his house."
