#1 Wake Up Everybody – John Legend & The Roots feat Common & Melanie Fiona.
Usually when I hear that artists are embarking on a cover album of Soul classics, I cringe, whine and moan and the end product falls way short of the mark and in most cases, quite embarrassingly so. Gladly this is not the case with Wake Up, the new album from John Legend & The Roots. It’s choc full of reworked and remoded classics that do the original artists proud. The first single is their take on the O’jays 73 classic Wake Up Everybody and man it’s a belter. Other highlights include Compared To What, Love The Way It Should Be and the brilliant Donnie Hathaway classic Little Ghetto Boy. The album is released Sept 21st. and is a must have for any serious soul fan.
Lloyd Banks is off the hook.
G-Unit rapper Lloyd Banks has been cleared of all charges filed during a 2009 altercation in Ontario, Canada. A confrontation between Banks, his entourage and promoter Chris Hines began after the two parties got into a disagreement over being compensated for a show in Brantford, Ontario. Banks posted bond and was later, but news broke that the charges were formally dropped Thursday afternoon via the following statement from Banks attorney, Scott E. Leemon, Esq. "Banks would like to thank his Canadian counsel, Patrick Ducharme, and the authorities in Ontario for ‘doing the right thing’ after a careful and neutral evaluation of the facts. It is good to see the system actually worked.”
The perils of Foxy .
Diva rapper Foxy Brown faces felony charges as the result of a recent altercation with a neighbor. Foxy got into a confrontation with a woman that had an order of protection against her, stemming from a previous 2007 incident where Foxy was accused of clubbing her with a BlackBerry. The two women crossed paths, at which point the accuser, Arlene Raymond, looked at Foxy. “Bitch, what are you looking at? What the fuck are you looking at?” yelled the rapper, according to police sources. Raymond called police, at which point Brown was arrested. For violating the order of protection, she was charged with one count of criminal contempt - a class E felony. Foxy’s rep was not available for comment.
Beats for Bieber WTF?.
While Dr. Dre has inched his way closer to presenting fans with his long-awaited Detox album, he’s also taken some time out to collaborate with other artists. He recently produced a song with Jay-Z, “Under Pressure,” which is said to be the first single from the album and now he’s reportedly teamed up with Justin Bieber to crank out some tracks. The 16-year old pop star tweeted today, “Got to be in the studio with the legend himself Dr. Dre. Made a couple beats and he gave me some advice...i was hyped. can u blame me?” The young singer has gained co-signs not only from his mentor Usher, but also from rappers like Game. “He’s another artist that breaks the color lines,” Game told Rap-Up TV. “Everyone loves this kid and he seems like a good kid. More power to him." Bieber’s peer Sean Kingston also tweeted that he’d spent some time with Dre and Bieber in the studio.
