Wednesday, Jan 25, 2012 9:00AM
Olivia has been trying to drop that sophomore album for almost a decade now and during a recent visit to Funk Flex's radio show, the popular DJ let her know why she's failed to get any real shine since 2001.
Olivia started the interview out mad confrontational, but was soon humbled by Flexington.
Olivia's radio interview with Flex was edited and played on the reality show, Love and Hip Hop, but the Funkmaster dropped the full version on his Web site. Flex pulls no punches, giving some tough love that a lot of reality stars could use. But do you think he went too far?
In other news ... Hip Hop back. At least for a day or so. MTV2 is doing a special episode of Yo! MTV Raps that will highlight classic raps vids. Also, they will do their Hottest MCs in the game episode, which is always a great argument starter. These air on Sunday, February 19th, beginning at 10 pm ET/PT.
MTV2 is set to honor Hip-Hop history with a special night of programming that includes an episode of "MTV2 Presents: Yo! MTV Raps Classic Cuts," on Sunday. The special show will be followed a special with MTV News crowning the "Hottest MCs in the Game VII" and a "Sucker Free Countdown" that will name five "Sucker Free Certified" rising stars. The return of "Yo! MTV Raps" brings back one of Hip-Hop's most-celebrated and influential music shows.(All Hip Hop)
