Nas Still Misses B.I.G., RZA Reveals What Wu Member Went Ghost, Eve’s Wedding Date Revealed?

Wicked Wednesday. It’s a day full of wicked things, so why not start it off with Nas speaking on the late Notorious B.I.G. amongst other things? Speaking of New York figures, did RZA reveal which active Wu-Tang Clan member won’t appear on their long-awaited reunion album? They might not play Wu at their wedding but it looks like Eve and her fiancé have a date penciled in? All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. Nas Is Like

Would Nas and B.I.G. have teamed up and made timeless classics if a fatal shooting hadn’t stopped Smalls’ life? You have to think something would have went down between Nas and the late Frank White, especially musically. Rap-Up is all over Nas’ Huffington Post interview:

To celebrate the release of Illmatic XX, Nas stopped by “HuffPost Live” on Tuesday. The hip-hop icon reminisced on the 20th anniversary of his seminal debut Illmatic and his legacy.

“I knew that it would be an important album at the time,” he said of his groundbreaking debut, “but I just thought at the time and maybe five years from there, but not this far.”

He touched on his relationship with Biggie (“I miss him today because he was a class act”), his rivalry with Tupac (“I had way too much respect for Tupac. He was a god”), and his original idea to put Maxwell instead of Ginuwine on “You Owe Me.” (Rap-Up)

Could Nas and B.I.G. make a bid for the best rappers alive? Biggie will always be considered the King of New York but with him still being alive, could Nas’ competitive side have put him up there as well? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

2. Chef’s Special

Are you ready for the long-awaited Wu-Tang Clan reunion album? Hopefully you’re not a huge Raekwon fan because RZA is saying the Chef is not going to take part in the project. NME has the skinny on this awkward situation:

Speaking to Vlad TV about why Raekwon will not be on ‘A Better Tomorrow’, RZA said: “I haven’t had a chance to really talk to him about why not. All I see is the press going back and forth. But I would say that maybe creatively we on different paths. I’m creatively different than I was in the ‘90s.” RZA previously revealed that the group have already been offered $5 million (£3,006,070) for The Wu – Once Upon A Time In Shaolin’. (NME)

That doesn’t give us a lot of information on why Raekwon won’t be involved. Is it too late to think Rae could submit a few verses and be a part of the project? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

3. Save The Date

With so many couples breaking up these days as seen courtesy of Big Sean/Naya Rivera and Brandy Norwood/Ryan Press it’s great to see there are a few engaged duos still going strong in the form of Eve and Maximillion Cooper. Nothing has been confirmed but there’s buzz about a projected wedding date. Express UK is on it:

The Who’s That Girl hitmaker is set to tie the knot with Cooper in a lavish ceremony at Ibiza nightclub Blue Marlin in June (14), according to the New York Post’s gossip column Page Six.

The 35 year old became engaged to the fashion designer and Gumball 3000 founder after he proposed to her on Christmas Day (25Dec13) following three years of dating.

Eve is developing a semi-autobiographical TV series inspired by her relationship with Cooper. (Express UK)

Could these two be waiting to see how big the Kanye West and Kim Kardashian wedding goes down before doing it big themselves? Will this be kept quiet or done on a large scale? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

That about wraps it up for today. This is SOHH On The Spot giving you the morning scoop from your favorite gossip sites.

Khloe K Hints At French Montana Status, Game Reveals New LP Title, Ice Cube Disses Late Hollywood Actor?

Thirsty Tuesday. It’s a day filled with trying to quench your thirst, so let’s start things off with Khloe Kardashian finally addressing her romance with French Montana? Speaking of Khloe’s pals, did Game just unveil the title of a new album? Keeping your mind on the West Coast, did Ice Cube go too far and diss a late actor? All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

[Editor's Note: The views expressed in this column do not necessarily reflect those of SOHH]

1. Undressed?

Did Khloe K finally admit she’s been dating and loving some French Montana? That appears to be the case if you look at what she’s been doing on social media as of late. The Daily Mail has the skinny:

It seemed Khloe Kardashian was contemplating the nature of love on Monday.

The 29-year-old reality star Instagrammed a quote by poet Christopher Poindexter, suggesting that all people are the same in that they perceive love as the answer to their existential pain.

Such ruminating may not come as a surprise, as the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star is likely entertaining a complex emotional life, as she moves on from her split with Lamar Odom and gets back into the dating world – her current rumoured beau being rapper French Montana. (Daily Mail)

Is this proof Khloe is relying on French’s love to get her over the recent divorce? Could love be as serious as she’s making it out to be or could it be friendly love? There’s all types of love out there, does it have to mean they’re bumping and grinding it out? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

2. Blood Moon

Did Game unveil the title of a new album? Even better, did the moon inspire what he will call a new project? If you’re following him on Instagram, you might have to ask yourself the same questions. Game’s Instagram has all the info:

Screen Shot 2014-04-15 at 11.51.52 AM

The best picture I could get of the #BloodMoon. 4-15-2014 12:44 am. Thanks to the universe, I now have the album title for the #BloodMoney compilation ha ha ha #LaFamilia……. It was really a dope site to see.. Hope everyone got to check it out, if not… Walk outside & bare witness to greatness !!!! (Game’s Instagram)

It’s unlikely Game will really call any upcoming project “Blood Moon” but considering how much he bases his life around the color red and his whole “Blood Money” movement, is it possible? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

3. Cold As Ice

Did Ice Cube take a nasty shot at the late Paul Walker during the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday? The Internet is blowing up over all these nasty accusations. TMZ has this covered:

Ice Cube is setting the record straight … saying he was not taking a huge shot at Paul Walker when he griped about losing to him at the MTV Movie Awards — and claims his words were misinterpreted.

Cube raised eyebrows when, according to USA Today, he said … “We was robbed” in the Best Onscreen Duo category. He and Kevin Hart’s “Ride Along” lost to Paul Walker and Vin Diesel’s “Fast & Furious 6.”

He added, “We had the best chemistry of everybody nominated, for us not to win was crazy.”

Sounds like Cube was getting some heat … because he’s now saying, “I wasn’t really mad we didn’t win. So I would never diss the actors who won. Not even Paul Walker.”

Ice Cube also tweeted, “Ice Cube is not a sore loser. I was born losing. This winning s*** is what I gotta get use to.”

Sources close to the actor/rapper tell us he had a joking tone during the USA Today interview … and was just busting on award shows since he doesn’t take them seriously. (TMZ)

Ouch? It looks like Ice Cube should have played it safe and just stayed mum on the entire topic. In all fairness though, does anyone really take the MTV Movie Awards seriously? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

That about wraps it up for today. This is SOHH On The Spot giving you the morning scoop from your favorite gossip sites.

Nicki Minaj Ditches Her Underwear, Iggy Azalea Bootyful Outfit, T.I. Cops A Bachelor Pad?

Moving Monday. We’re moving all over the place today, so why not get things started with Nicki Minaj not rocking with underwear? Speaking of curvy women, is Iggy Azalea going to give Nicki a run for her money with booty comparisons? Iggy’s boss T.I. is keeping busy these days, especially after getting his hands on a huge mansion to ball in? All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

[Editor's Note: The views expressed in this column do not necessarily reflect those of SOHH]

1. You Had To See It

Did anyone else get to see Nicki Minaj’s curves from last night’s Movie Awards? MTV almost had to bust out their censors when you saw all that Nicki was packing. It’s funny how even when she’s in a legit dress it feels NSFW. Entertainmentwise has the pics:

Nicki Minaj is not one for the demure look, but last night she nailed it at the MTV Movie Awards as she squeezed her curves into a tight black dress for the ceremony but unashamedly left her underwear at home. The Starships hitmaker often shares near-naked selfies with her fans on Instagram, but last night the star covered up and let her Alexander McQueen dress do the talking. Nicki, 31, who went bra-free for the occasion ditched the bright colours and dramatic make-up for a more toned down look with her hair pulled to one side. When asked by a fan if she was going to wear underwear at the MTV Movie Awards, she replied on Twitter: “Of course not”. (Entertainmentwise)

Are the days of Nicki busting out tons of skin and getting all explicit over? Is she finally getting her grown woman on? Is this a new look we should expect from Nicki? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

2. Round Of Applause

Much like Nicki Minaj, Iggy Azalea gave people a reason to watch the MTV Movie Awards in light of her own curves. She might not have a lot going on above the waist other than a gorgeous smile but what’s below the waist is enough to have all of the cameras snapping. Daily Mail UK is on it:

The blonde beauty’s hourglass figure was on full display beneath the mid-length dress, which featured sheer panels and embellishment across the chest.

Iggy, real name Amethyst Amelia Kelly, kept her blonde locks pulled back in a sleek ponytail not to detract from the designer creation.

The quirky singer, who grew up in regional Australia before to the US at 16 to pursue her dreams of becoming a successful rapper, is about to release her new album The New Classic. (Daily Mail UK)

Are you digging this look? Did Iggy have the edge over Nicki? What’s the verdict? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

3. The King’s Home

Is T.I. preparing for the bachelor life? Probably not but he’s going all out as if he is a single man these days after buying a decked-out home. TMZ has the info:

When ballers like T.I. want to cut down their commute they do NOT carpool — they just spend more cash on a new home … closer to work. Genius.

Atlanta sources tell TMZ … Tip just leased a 4 BR, European estate in the exclusive Buckhead neighborhood — even though he and his wife Tiny already have a house in A-Town.

We’re told … the rapper’s real estate motivation is simple. The place is just two minutes from his studio — erasing his usual 40 minute drive home after a night of recording.

But check out the pics — with a massive pool, outdoor kitchen, and entertainment area — we doubt there will be a lot of sleep going down at this crash pad. (TMZ)

Can you hate on T.I. for such a big purchase? Is T.I. still the king of the South? Considering how he’s living, with that VH1 money too, it looks like he’s at least the king of the real estate in Atlanta. #SOHHWhatchaThink?
