Yes, yes y'all. It's Friday. Time to get ya mind right for the weekend, but first -- we're gonna hit you with a few interesting music news bites. Enjoy.
Trick Daddy is gonna keep it real. Always. Like DMX's interview on Power 105 yesterday, Trick recently let his feelings be known about a few artists. But his thoughts on fellow Florida rapper Plies definitely raised some eyebrows.
Plies is a bitch. Me and Plies' problem started because I walked up on Plies [in Orlando at the Roxy] talking about he didn't want me at his show, and I was only coming to support. Ever since then he has refused to even get on the phone like a man and talk to me about it. Anytime I walk by accidentally they start running. When I shot the [DJ Khaled] "Out Here Grindin'" video shoot in New York, Plies wouldn't come because he didn't know I was on the record.(Ozone Mag)
Trick went on to add that Plies has a good education so he ought to fall back with all the goon talk.
I just think Plies should just realize that it's easier to be amongst us than on top of us. When I listen to [Plies'] music, he tries to be so ghetto and hard. Then I research and find out the nigga graduated at the top of his class. The nigga went to college. I would trade for that. You could be Trick Daddy, shit. If I could go to college and have a clean record and graduate as valedictorian, I'd trade Trick Daddy for that.(Ozone Mag)
In other news ... a source has revealed that Hov is still not cool with Chris and Rihanna working together. The music mogul is reportedly disappointed that RiRi has run back to her "Mr. Wrong." Well, Jay, she's a grown woman now: Gotta let her make her own decisions.
"Jay was absolutely disgusted by what Chris did to Rihanna. Jay doesn't understand how a man could ever lay hands on a woman; it just goes against who he is and about. Chris is absolutely dead to Jay, he wants nothing to do with him ever. Now that Rihanna is hooking up with Chris and recording songs with him, Jay is deeply disappointed in her actions. He can't fathom why Rihanna is doing the things she is doing. He understands the need for forgiveness, but he is adamant that Rihanna shouldn't forget what Chris did to her. Jay wonders what kind of message this is sending to Rihanna's young female fans. Rihanna knows how Jay feels about Chris, but she doesn't care, she is going to do what she wants," a source close to the situation tells us.(Rap Radar)
The story went on to say that the Jigga Man believes that their situation will never be right and that Chris still has an anger problem. Jay might be right: Just recently, Chris was accused of snatching a chick's celly because she took some unapproved pics of him.
Now that Jay-Z is a proud daddy to daughter, Blue Ivy, with wife Beyoncé, "he is even more protective of the women in his life. Jay has told Rihanna he will never give his blessing for what she is doing with Chris. He has told her, this isn't going to end well, it never does. In Jay's opinion, Chris has rage issues that he doesn't think have been dealt with," the insider says.(Rap Radar)
SOHH Watcha Think -- Does Hov have a right to still be upset over the Chris/RiRi incident, or should he forgive and forget as she has?
Oh yeah. Peep this new track by Nicki Minaj f/ Lil Wayne.
