Hip Hop is taking a stand against the Grammys this year, as Drake, Kendrick Lamar and Childish Gambino have all declined to perform at the 61st annual music awards show, despite being nominated for multiple awards.
“The fact of the matter is, we continue to have a problem in the hip-hop world,” said Ken Ehrlich, the Grammy’s longtime producer. “When they don’t take home the big prize, the regard of the academy, and what the Grammys represent, continue to be less meaningful to the hip-hop community, which is sad.
Lamar has garnered eight Grammy nominations, while Drake follows behind with seven. Gambino has also been nominated in five categories including “Song of The Year” with his 2018 release, “This Is America.”
Joe Budden Announces New Amazon Radio Show ‘Music Lovers Only’
Joe Budden is reintroducing himself to radio with his new Amazon Radio Show, Music Lovers Only.
Premiering on May 16 at 5 pm EST, Music Lovers Only with Joe Budden will be a weekly syndicated series where he’ll be able to interact with fans using the live call-in feature on Amp —the new live-radio app from Amazon. According to the press release, Budden will also be able to curate playlists featuring his favorite songs, all while tapping in with fans about the latest news and issues that matter to the culture.
“As music lovers all we have is each other to spread the word of a good song, a good vibe, and a good set for the spirit,” said Budden. “Get to your favorite spot in the house and get comfortable, we’re just here to have a good time.”
Earlier this year, Nicki Minaj announced she would be leaving Apple Music Beats 1 for Amp, where she’ll be reviving Queen Radio.
Thank you Joe, I rlly appreciate you asking & caring. We have a new home. Official announcement coming soon. I gotta s/o Larry Jackson @ Apple tho, for originally putting the idea on my radar & giving me his blessing to explore new avenues for the show. #QueenRadio 🎀 pic.twitter.com/kX7KYPS7G6— Nicki Minaj (@NICKIMINAJ) December 14, 2021
New Certifications: ‘Mystery Lady’ Certifies Gold!
There’s a new certification out! As of May 3, ‘Mystery Lady’ by Masego and Don Toliver just went gold, selling 500,000 copies! The two artists sing out to a lady they have no clue about. They’re just enveloped in how enticing she is.
This lady is unlike any fans whom Masego has given roses to. In his eyes, she’s like no other, which is probably why he’s never seen her!
“Thinking I can make as many songs ’bout a lady
When I haven’t met her
But she on me heavy, on my cerebellum
If I say I love her, am I wrong? Am I crazy?
Am I overzealous?”
In their music video, their mystique breezes through gardens, beach sands, city streets and more just minding hers while Masego follows after her.
Toliver doesn’t bother chasing but he still sings out to this mystery lady.
“Ring, ring, hit my celly (ring, ring)
Remember you went you bad on me, I won’t forget it (ring, ring)
You said you wanna tell on me, now, won’t you tell it? (Yeah)
In between the sheets, you know I got you yellin’ (yellin’)”
This single marks the third track of Masego’s 2020 EP called ‘Studying Abroad: Extended Stay‘ with features from Shenseea, Toliver, Sheléa, and TeaMarrr.
