ARTICLE: 50 Cent Clears Up Twitter “Beef”

50 Cent went into renegade mode Thursday, blasting his label on Twitter and releasing his new single “Outlaw” independently of Interscope. Don’t get it twisted, however: The G-Unit General isn’t just acting off of emotion. This is all part of his plan to light a fire under the label in preparation of his fifth, yet-untitled album. (50 confirmed to MTV News that this is not the Black Magic album he had announced in 2010.)

On April 18, Fif announced via Twitter that he was going to be dropping a single from his new album, but never did. When MTV News caught up with him a few days later on the L.A. set of Nicole Scherzinger’s “Right There” video, 50 backtracked, saying that instead, he opted to work in conjunction with Interscope on the release.

“So I had the record I was ready to launch, and we sat down and everybody talked,” Fif told MTV News in an interview Friday (June 17). “What happens is, there are a lot of people involved in my actual launch, because its three parties; it’s Shady, then you got Aftermath, then you got Interscope, and then you got me on my end. So by the time we got to go sit down with [Interscope chairman] Jimmy [Iovine], we talked a little bit, and then I ended up having to go see Dre, because we had the little issue, the confusion about the Twitter stuff.”

The “Twitter stuff” the Southside Jamaica, Queens, rapper is referencing is when he charged on the social-networking site that Dre and Jimmy Iovine were “mad” because Fif announced that he was developing his own brand of high-end headphones to rival the Good Doctor’s Beats by Dre.

“We sat down, we cleared that up, me and Dre, and then we said, ‘Let’s just get back to the music and do what we do,’ ” Curtis said before revealing his and Dre’s next move. “Immediately after, we wrote a song together called ‘The Psycho’; it’s Dre’s next single.”

After making peace with his partners, it was 50′s intention to release his own single with his label’s support and have a record that would impact radio so he could perform at Hot 97′s annual Summer Jam concert at Giants Stadium in New Jersey. There was no single and, subsequently, no 50 Cent at the show, which took place June 5. “Why would I be going to Summer Jam to perform a bunch of feature songs?” the rapper asked rhetorically. “That’s not for me. I rather not be there than to go through that.”

Things took a turn Thursday when the MC tweeted: “Ok I tried to be cool with my record company. I went to the meeting talk to everyone and sh– feels like there moving in slow motion,” adding that he wouldn’t drop an album in 2011 unless Interscope got “on the same page.” Then he premiered his new song “Outlaw” later that evening in an effort to cause excitement for his upcoming LP, which will be his last on Interscope.

Though he is visibly concerned about how the rollout of his album is being handled, Fif wants to be clear about where he places the blame. “It’s not necessarily Dre or Jimmy; it’s more the guys that they pass the responsibilities onto. It takes longer for people, because they’ll be like, ‘OK, we’re gonna do this and we’re gonna do that,’ and the building will start having those conversations, but they’re not actually moving at that point.”- mtvnews


ARTICLE: Director A. “Rokafella” Garcia Brings You Into The World Of A B-Girl With Her Documentary “ALL THE LADIES SAY”

“All The Ladies Say” is a film that highlights the lives of six iconic female street dancers from San Jose, Atlanta, Miami and Chicago, who have carved a niche in the physically challenging, male dominated breakdance world. Discussions about motherhood, sexual tension, femininity versus masculinity and the rap industry/mainstream images are a few of the themes explored by the documentary’s main characters. International dancers not only make appearances but also add their two cents about life as a B Girl in the Hip-hop world.

The director is a veteran female breakdancer, (B Girl Rokafella), who co-founded Full Circle Producutions, Inc. in 1996 with her husband Kwikstep. For over a decade, their mission has been to present uplifting Hip Hop dance performances and provide educational Hip Hop dance programming through out NYC. In 2005, Rokafella felt the timing was perfect to introduce a national introspective discussion series, bringing the community together to address issues on personal and professional levels that can be resolved with sensitive and open dialogue.

She wrote a grant proposal to the Ford Foundation to fund this series of discussions called “The B Girl Sitdowns”. In 2006 she curated a six city series of discussions and activities that would be organized and hosted by female street dancers in their respective cities, extending an invitation to all Hip Hop artists, male and female alike. The archival footage began to develop a story of its own and so began the quest to produce a documentary about the journey of B Girls. Full Circle has recently received a film production grant from Bronx Council on the Arts, which adds to Rokafella’s continuous fund raising efforts.

On June 3, 2009, Full Circle brought the main characters of “All The Ladies Say” to the Bronx Museum to partake in a film screening, Q & A, dance classes and dance demonstration, as part of local teen council party and film fund raising activity. The website for the film has been recently launched, http://www.alltheladiessay.com, and more information can be also seen at http://www.fullcirclesoul.com. SUPPORT ALL ELEMENTS OF HIP-HOP!!!!!

ARTICLE: Audi Fights Against Eminem’s Lawsuit


A U.S. spokesperson for Audi has responded to the lawsuit filed in Hamburg Regional Court in Germany this week by Eight Mile Style LLC, Eminem’s publishing company. The German automobile manufacturer is being sued for using an unauthorized sample of Eminem’s Academy Award-winning song “Lose Yourself” from his film “8 Mile.”

The Audi spokesperson told Yahoo! Music that the video that has sparked the debate is not a commercial. “The video referred to is not an advertisement,” he said via email. “Also, this does not involve Audi of America. The video was not shown here in the U.S.” The spokesperson added that due to the legal nature of the matter, he could not comment further.

In the European spot for the 2012 Audi A6 Avant, a professionally-dressed man drives the luxury vehicle through a city as the memorable guitar rift and snare taps from “Lose Yourself” play in the background.

The song choice and the video concept have also drawn comparisons to a 2011 Super Bowl advertisement Eminem made for Chrysler.-yahoo

“We believe Audi not only used ‘Lose Yourself’ to sell their product without permission, but their spot actually feels inspired by elements of Chrysler’s commercial campaign,” a spokesperson for Eight Mile Style told Billboard.

In Eminem’s advertisement for the Chrysler 200, a faceless driver tours Detroit, showing both the rundown and flourishing parts of the city. The marquee on the town’s landmark Fox Theater reads, “Keep Detroit Beautiful,” a reference to Eminem’s 2009 song “Beautiful.” The rapper is revealed as the driver of the car.

The 2012 Audi A6 clip is a more pristine version of the Chrysler 200 spot.

According to Billboard, Chrysler had not announced any plans to also file a suit against Audi.

MUSIC NEWS: Adele Cancels Remaining Dates on her North American Tour

Adele has canceled the remainder of her sold-out North American tour due to “ongoing illness,” a spokesperson for her label, Columbia Records, announced Friday.

Last week, the British belter was forced to cancel a show in Minneapolis due to a case of laryngitis, but came back to perform a concert in Denver. Then, earlier this week, under doctor’s orders, she canceled five West Coast gigs and hoped that her voice would improve with rest. Adele had originally planned to return to the stage on Saturday at San Francisco’s Warfield Theatre, but those plans went awry when her vocal condition didn’t improve.

“Adele recently postponed five shows under doctor’s orders when she was diagnosed with laryngitis,” a statement from Columbia read. “While resting in Los Angeles, Adele met with an otolaryngology specialist who determined it was imperative that she take the next few weeks to recover with absolute voice rest.”

All told, the final nine dates of her tour will be scrapped.

“I’m really frustrated,” Adele said in a statement. “I was hoping with a week’s rest, I’d be better to sing again straight away. However, there is absolutely nothing I can do but take the doctor’s advice and rest some more. I’m so sorry.”

Columbia said that plans to reschedule the cancelled tour dates “are being investigated,” and that more information would be provided.

Since launching in North America in early May, Adele’s tour has been a sold-out smash, thanks in no small part to the continued success of her 21 album, which has sold nearly 2 million copies since being released in February and has topped the Billboard albums chart on nine different occasions.-mtvnews


Music News: Says Single “Born This Way” is not worth more than 99 cents

Ever since Lady Gaga’s Born This Way was released on May 23, much has been made of its pricing and promotion, a multi-tiered plan that included partnerships with everyone from the folks behind “FarmVille” to Best Buy … and, of course, Amazon.com, which decided to price the album at 99 cents on the day of release to promote its Cloud Drive service (and when the download demand subsequently sank the site, they extended the deal for a second day).

According to some estimates, downloads through Amazon accounted for nearly half of Born This Way’s 1.1 million sales — which certainly proved that it worked — but at the same time, it also sparked genuine debate about the inherent worth of an album … and whether the Amazon model may have fundamentally changed the way new releases are promoted and priced.

So, in a new interview with The Wall Street Journal, Gaga was asked whether she believed that Born This Way was worth more than 99 cents. And her answer was somewhat surprising.

“No. I absolutely do not, especially for MP3s and digital music. It’s invisible. It’s in space. If anything, I applaud a company like Amazon for equating the value of digital versus the physical copy, and giving the opportunity to everyone to buy music,” she said. “It also wasn’t really 99 cents, because Amazon paid the difference on all of those purchases as part of their promotional campaign for one of their new services. I think it’s amazing and it was a really nice surprise and I felt honored that they chose my record to be part of it.”

Amazon would be paying the difference on all those 99-cent purchases to Interscope/ Universal Music Group — a tab that could run as high $3.2 million, according to Billboard.biz — but in the long run, that loss might actually be viewed as a win, since it drove traffic to the site and raised awareness of its fledgling Cloud Drive service. And Gaga is the first to admit that the plan isn’t for everyone … it’s up to individual artists (and their labels) to determine a price point. But she’s happy with the results this time out.

“I don’t know if other artists or other companies would want to adopt the same model,” she told the WSJ. “Everyone always has the opportunity to sell their music at any price they want to. This sort of happened this way and it’s very exciting.” -mtv news


MUSIC NEWS: Sean Kingston In a Jetski Accident

Rapper Sean Kingston is in a Miami area hospital Sunday night after crashing into a bridge while riding a watercraft, officials said.

MUSIC NEWS: DRAKE To Drop New Album Titled “Take Care”

“So this is my first Memorial weekend really particpating this heavily,” Drizzy said from the set of DJ Khaled’s “I’m On One” video shoot in Miami. “I just want to get out there and touch the people, slap everybody’s hand, see the women; just let them know im out here. Let them see me, because they havent seen me in a while.” It isn’t all work however.

Drake hints that will be observing the crowds and using his expirence to fine tune his album. “And I got this album coming it’s called Take Care, so I just really want to get out here and check the climate. I wanna hear the records, see how everybody’s moving, see what everybody’s lovin’, because I know I got a great body of work,” he said. “I’m ready to give it away, I’m using this weekend as study research. I’ll be getting as drunk as I can trying to fit in, doin’ it like that.”

Drake recently raised eyebrows after dropping his new “Dreams Money Can Buy” single.
“My favorite rappers either lost it or they ain’t alive,” he raps in the second verse of the song, rumored to be the intro to his new album, Take Care. Fans quickly began assuming Drizzy was taking a jab at his “Light Up” collaboration partner Jay-Z, whom he’s regarded as a mentor and one of his favorite rappers.

Drale also goes on to say that his first album was rushed which is why he decided to name this one “Take Care”
Rumor has it it will be released sometime in the fall.


MUSIC NEWS: EVE To Release New Album Titled “LipLock”

Ruff Ryders’ First Lady is working on her newest album “Lip Lock” and is five songs away from its completion.

“I need her to stop. If I was Kim’s friend, I’d be like, yo. Because she’s Kim, period. So she never has to feed. She shouldn’t. It’s bad. It’s not a good look. If I was her friend, I’d tell her, yo, just come back bigger and better. The best way to get at people is to do you better than you’ve ever done you. So that’s it.”

The Philly native also made sure to give an update on her delayed album Lip Lock, revealing that she’ll be dropping her new single “Mama’s In The Kitchen” featuring Swizz Beatz in the next few weeks.

ARTICLE: Main Chick Or Side Chick That Is The Question ?

Chick: The woman who is one level above a man’s jumpoff but
ALWAYS a step below the wifey or girlfriend.

I’m not here to put down the side chick, do you, and better you than
me so we’re cool. I’m just here to help the confused ladies who are
having a side chick/main chick identity crisis. So after I give you my
clear cut signs that you are indeed the side chick, ihiphop’s own
sexpert Mike Stylezz will come in and give you hopefuls a few tips on
what you can do to become a main chick (here’s to hoping) More often
than I would like I see my girls get caught up and infatuated with a
dude so quickly that they can’t even see the most obvious of signs he
already has a main bitch, so my first gem of advice to you is to open
your damn eyes get your head out of your ass and start to pay
attention. The following are my clear cut signs that you are in fact
the backup second string QB in his game.

1. You do not get holiday’s which includes Christmas, Halloween,
Thanksgiving, and especially Valentine’s Day (you may get the night
before or after but never on the actual holiday. Also you do not get
birthday’s (other than your own).

2. While he may meet your family (which doesn’t mean he wanted to) You
will never meet this…let me repeat NEVER meet his, so stop asking.
Although you will never meet ANY of his family, you may meet SOME of
his friends but don’t get it twisted that it only because those boys
have side chicks too and can relate…it’s like a side chick meet and
greet if you will.

3. You do get presents, he may know your dress size and/or shoe size,
but that’s because those are things he can give you- material things.
The main chick is the HBIC, she gets everything else from him
(emotions, babies, his balls) you get sex and gifts THATS IT.

4.He always comes to you, he meets you at the place, he will meet you
at your house, sound familiar? He knows he can’t take the chance of
your hoop earring falling off in his ride and his main chick finding
it, thats side chick 101.

5.As a side chick you get special phone etiquette: he will never use
your name when on the phone with you, that’s when he answers the phone
because he will definitely prefer to text you since he’s probably with
wifey, and he will always delete any all messages to and from you on a
daily basis.

If you aren’t paying attention you could easily mistake a side chick
for the main chick. The side chick has certain privileges, receives
gifts, and probably gets it in more than the main chick, but at the
end of the day you are disposable. So for you wifey wannabes here’s
some tips from an expert.

How To Step It Up From Side Chick To Main Chick (Mike Stylezz):

1. You need to prove to him you`re more than a side chick, that you`ll be there no matter what happens. Ride or die chick. Say things that`ll make him question how loyal she is. Say things like I would rock with you even if you were broke and bummy.

2. First make sure you look better than his girl, if you dont then lets be honest you`re just a good time, and he`ll never leave her for you. If you are somewhat better looking then go to the gym wear your sexy heels all the time. Make sure your hair and nails are always on point.

3. Listen to him very carefully. When he talks about her try to be the opposite of everything she is. If she complains be super understanding. If she never has time for him pretend your taking off from work just to see him.

4. Sex game has to always be on point! Super on point. You`re obviously a good lay if hes coming back for more and risking his relationship but be consistent. The day you start slipping is the day hes out. Just got tired of the cooch. You`re done.

5. Dont Pressure him to leave his girl. If you butter him up enough and treat him like a king he`s gunna start doubting how much he likes or loves her. Then one day their gunna fight and hes going to think about how much better life is with you (if you done everything right so far) and its a wrap.

6. Do not ask him to buy you anything! Dont get in the “I`m you`re side chick you better bribe me or i`ll tell” mindset. Guys are severely turned off by that, for that they can just cheat with a nasty hooker and she wouldn’t tell and most likely cost way less.

7. Make sure he knows hes the only one getting to smash that a$$, he`ll never take you serious if he knows you`re also giving the business to other dudes. Remember you`re trying to make him think you`re better than wifey not a slide.

-In conclusion as a dude the only reason I would get a side chick is because I`m bored, you have alot of skank swag compared to my main girl, you`ll do things sexually she wont, I just want to prove that I still got it or you`re just so hot I dont want to let the chance go by. Its hard for a guy to change his mind once hes wifed up, he has so much invested but if he is slightly attracted to you and you follow my rules and be patient there is chance that he`ll hip toss that broad and rock with you.

MUSIC NEWS: Fans Throw Bottles At Odd Future During A Show In Detroit.


MUSIC NEWS: Snoop Dogg Wants To Make a “HipHop X-Factor”

Snoop Dogg, citing the success of televised musical talent contests, has revealed plans to produce a hip-hop version of The X Factor. Saying that The X Factor and American Idol are “great shows,” Snoop wants to create a version with a little more street savvy and find hip-hop’s next big star.

“I’m looking for a deal from a network to find America’s hottest hood artists,” Snoop said at a London press conference flanked by smoke and pole dancers, adding that he hopes to make the show “straight directed to the hood… at people with no money, just talent.”

In the UK to perform a show in support of his recent Doggumentary album, Snoop also teased an idea to start a supermarket chain (called “Snoopermarkets,” of course) and basked in the glory of some recent acting success.

Snoop recently appeared in a cameo role in the Antonio Banderas movie The Big Bang. The film opened last Friday (May 20) and is currently in theaters. —Carter Maness


Industry Tips & Advice: MUSIC SYNCHRONIZATION RIGHTS by Walter G. Lehmann

The use of music in film, TV, video and webcast production involves two aspects of copyright law: synchronization rights and performance rights. Performance rights come into play when a production is shown to the public — typically via broadcast or cablecast. Performance rights are primarily of concern to film distributors and TV and cable stations.
Synchronization or “sync” rights, on the other hand, are involved whenever recorded music is used in combination with visual images in a production. It is important for producers to understand what is involved in obtaining sync rights.

Some producers incorporate music in their productions without permission, particularly for programming produced for private use (in in-company training videos, for example) or for distribution in the smallest markets where the likelihood of detection is low. Not only does this practice violate the copyright law (for which the consequences can be severe) but it can also unnecessarily limit opportunities to exploit the production. Other producers treat music rights clearance as an afterthought, only to discover that obtaining sync rights can be complicated, time-consuming, expensive and not
guaranteed. Experienced producers budget for, and negotiate the terms of, sync licenses before including music in a production. If the rights are too costly or are not available, the producer is able to look for alternatives.

In many cases, a producer commissions original music for a production. When a musician is hired to compose original music, the producer may own the work outright under a “work-made-for-hire” agreement and does not need to license the sync rights separately. In such an agreement, the producer may agree to pay the musician or music publisher a flat fee and/or grant a royalty interest in the production. Work-for-hire agreements must be in writing and contain specific language to be enforceable.

More typically, the musician or music publisher insists on retaining all or part ownership of the work and agrees only to license the sync rights to the producer for a set fee, a royalty interest, or based on some other formula. Under this approach, the producer can usually keep the cost of the sync license low (perhaps only compensating the musician for actual costs), because the performance license fees for a commissioned work — which the producer does not pay — can
be very lucrative for the musician and/or music publisher.

In a typical flat fee arrangement, the musician is paid fifty percent of the total compensation to start work. Music is composed and presented to the producer who offers comments and criticism. After revisions are made, players are hired and the music is recorded. An additional twenty-five percent is usually paid on the first day of recording. The music is then mixed and edited and the final twenty-five percent is paid on delivery.

If the music was previously recorded and published, the producer will have to obtain a sync license from the copyright owner (usually the music publisher, or the musician in the case of self-published work). The use of music in film, TV, video and webcast is not covered by the compulsory license provisions of the Copyright Act. As a result, sync licenses for these uses must be negotiated on an individual basis between the copyright owner and the producer.

The heart of the sync license describes the rights which are being licensed. This normally will be a non-exclusive right to record and edit the music in sync with the production, to make copies of the recording in sync with the production, to perform the music in sync with the production in theaters, through broadcast and cablecast, and to reproduce and sell home videos containing the music in sync. Usually the sync right is structured so that all other rights other than the sync right may continue to be licensed or otherwise exploited by the musician. The sync license is also normally limited to a specific period of time, after which the sync rights themselves can also be licensed to other productions.

The sync license may also provide for use of the music for promotional purposes such as advertising the production, and for other ancillary uses. Musicians with particularly strong bargaining power may insist on additional compensation for such ancillary uses. For relatively unknown musicians, however, the additional exposure gained from such uses can be invaluable. In a similar vein, the sync license typically requires the producer to credit the musician not only
in the production, but also in connection with advertising and promotional activities, and on home videos. Due to the current lucrative market for soundtrack albums, it is becoming increasingly common in film and TV sync licenses to also negotiate for the right to produce a soundtrack album containing the music featured in the production.
