JAY-Z to Drop Visual Album at End of June

By: Taylor Gates

JAY-Z has had a whirlwind of a week. Between his wife Beyoncé giving birth to twins to spending father’s day bailing out incarcerated dads to changing the stylization of his name to include a hyphen and be in all caps, the 21-time Grammy winner has been keeping busy. And now, four years after ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail,’ JAY-Z has set a date for his next record—‘4:44’ will be released on June 30th exclusively on his streaming service, TIDAL.

The entire album was reportedly produced by No I.D, who was involved in JAY’Z’s hits “Run This Town” and “Holy Grail.” No I.D has also recently worked with Kanye West, Nas, and Common.

Like ‘Lemonade,’ ‘4:44’ will be a visual album featuring A-list talent including Mahershala Ali, Lupita Nyong’o, and Danny Glover.

Not much is yet known about the album’s contents besides the fact it will feature a song called “Adnis” about his father.

Beyonce Gives Birth to Twins!

By: Taylor Gates

Queen Bey has given birth to a princess and a prince! Multiple sources report that Beyoncé and husband Jay Z welcomed their twins—one girl, one boy—in Los Angeles on June 12.

Rumors started circulating that the 22-time Grammy winner might have gone into labor early last week when there were reports of increased security around the hospital.

The “Lemonade” singer announced that she was pregnant in what has since become the most-liked picture on Instagram.

“We would like to share our love and happiness,” she captioned the adorable snapshot of herself cradling her baby bump. “We have been blessed two times over. We are incredibly grateful that our family will be growing by two, and we thank you for your well wishes.”

Beyoncé’s father confirmed the news on June 18th via Twitter. “They’re here!” he tweeted along with a picture of balloons that read “Happy birthday to the twins, love granddad.”

There is no word yet on the twins’ names, but considering their first child’s name is Blue Ivy, they’re sure to be unique and iconic!

Will Jay Z’s 4:44 Album Overthrow Beyoncé’s Lemonade Throne?

By: Ali Marashi

There have been many speculations that Jay Z has been dropping an album. The twitter account @DJBooth recently leaked a since deleted tweet that Jay Z’s 13 th studio album will be called 4:44 in Roman Numerals. For years now, Jigga has been making us all wait years for this new release.

After his wife dropped the Platinum Album, Lemonade, the entire universe has been asking the questions about their marriage and relationship status but now are expecting twins. Moreover, the world has been heated up over these subtle hints at the new album. This connection of the number 4 and this album title can be traced back to their daughter Blue Ivy (IV, the Roman numeral for 4), Beyoncé and Jay Z’s matching IV tattoos, or their birthdays both being on the 4 th , Hova has us all sitting by our computer screens waiting for the album release.

In addition, these past few months rumors have been circulating about the salmon and black ad campaign with the numbers “4:44” all over New York City and Jay St. subway stop. Are all these rumors true? Will this album be as prominent as Lemonade?

She may have sat out of Coachella last minute due to her pregnancy, but Queen Bey made up for it, flower crown and all.

This past Saturday, Beyoncé was in full support of her mother Tina Knowles-Lawson at the Wearable Art Gala. At the event, Beyoncé was also accompanied by her husband Jay Z and daughter Blue Ivy. The expecting mother of twins wore a form-fitting scarlet gown that hugged every inch of her body flawlessly. The finishing touch of the ensemble included an elegant crown, complete with a garden of flowers and shimmering butterflies.

The Wearable Art Gala marks the first annual event to celebrate the WACO Theater Center in Los Angeles. The new theater was established by Tina and her husband, Richard Lawson. Another surprise at the event was the addition of Beyoncé’s former bandmates, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams who also stunned in gorgeous gowns of their own.

Jay Z Says Goodbye to Spotify and Apple Music

Screen Shot 2017-04-09 at 6.24.50 PM

It looks like Jay Z has officially taken the full plunge as, following a move that began two years back, he has quietly removed the remainder of his solo music catalog from major streaming platforms Spotify and Apple Music.

According to Complex, the move was finalized on Friday when Spotify’s reps said the records were all pulled “at the request of the artist.” Apple Music, however, failed to comment on the removal.

This all comes as Jigga’s own streaming service, Tidal, continues to compete with the juggernauts of the industry, having launched just two years ago.

Back in 2015, Hov started the process by removing his classic 1996 debut LP Reasonable Doubt from all of Tidal’s competitors. He followed that up in 2016 by taking all three volumes of his Blueprint series off as well. The only albums that remain are his collaborative efforts with R. Kelly and Collision Corse, his joint venture with Linkin Park.

As for Watch the Throne, his monster smash album with Kanye West, that has also disappeared from all streaming services but Tidal.

While the streaming component of his solo albums have been removed, all of Jigga’s albums remain available for purchase on iTunes.

This news was first reported by BET.

Screen Shot 2017-03-13 at 7.45.35 PM

By: Briana Phipps

It looks lie Jay Z and Beyoncé have adapted quite well to Los Angeles. So well in fact that they are reportedly opening a restaurant business on Sunset Boulevard.

So far most of the details are under wraps, but Love B Scott is reporting that the shuttered Cat and Fiddle location is being re-developed into the power couple’s culinary vision.

The report says the original 1920s building is a Spanish-style stone complex built around a large courtyard, but it’s unclear how much of if they’re keeping. Supposedly local chefs are already being interviewed by managers for the as yet unnamed venture

Speaking of restaurants and the Carters, down under in Australia, The Carter is a new establishment in Sydney, that’s dedicated to Jay-Z and Beyoncé.

The Carter features a lot of artwork dedicated to the power couple. There’s also pics of Kanye West

“The Carter was inspired by New York’s great architecture, food and controversial entertainment,” the bar’s manager Chady Khouzame told The Music.

Charlamagne Tha God Pens ‘Black Privilege’ Book

screen-shot-2016-11-07-at-3-34-05-pm

By: Briana Phipps

After interviewing Hillary Clinton, Kanye West, Jay Z, and a slew of A-list talent, “The Breakfast Club” co-host Charlamagne Tha God is writing a book called “Black Privilege: Opportunity Comes to Those Who Create It.” The book is scheduled for next spring via the Simon & Schuster imprint Touchstone.

“Personally, I think Hillary is more than qualified to be President of the United States of America,” Charlamagne told NBCBLK. “Plus, I like what she represents as a symbol. She’s a woman. I have two daughters. I feel like that’s empowering for women the same way watching Barack Obama was empowering for black people.”

With “brutally honest insights,” he plans to recount his rise from a dirt road in Moncks Corner, South Carolina, to national fame through radio and MTV.

Charlamagne said in a statement that as an English teacher’s son, he had always loved books, and penning one himself was a “dream fulfilled.”

Kanye West Publicly Addresses His Issues with Jay-Z on Stage

screen-shot-2016-10-20-at-8-13-34-pm

By: Rhelin Taylor

Kanye West spilled ALL the tea at his Saint Pablo Tour in Seattle Wednesday night, and let’s just say it was piping hot!

The rapper known for telling it how it is, opened up about his relationship with Jay-Z.
If you’re familiar with Kanye’s rise to stardom, then you know Jay-Z played a huge part in his career. Jay signed him to Roc-A-Fella Records back in early 2000. Ever since then we’ve known the two to have a powerful bond. In 2011 they blessed us with their collaborative album “Watch The Throne.”
Yet, ever since the start of Kanye’s relationship with Kim Kardashian, we started seeing Jay-Z less and less. Even more eyebrows raised when neither Jay-Z or Beyonce attended the “Kimye” wedding.
Well last night’s rant started off with Kanye explaining why him and Jay-Z didn’t appear on the final version of Drake’s song “Pop Style.” Since Drake is signed to Apple and not TIDAL, Jay-Z saw this as a conflict of interest. (Oh, and for those of you who don’t know, Jay-Z owns TIDAL!)
Kanye also took to the stage to say that he wasn’t satisfied with receiving just a phone call from Jay-Z after news spread of Kim K’s robbery.
 
He said, “Don’t call me, after the robbery, and say “how you feelin?” You wanna know how I’m feelin? Come by the house.” 
Oh, and if you were hoping that another Watch the Throne album was in the works, prepare to be disappointed. Kanye says “There will never be a ‘Watch The Throne 2’.”
Hopefully Jay & Ye’ can work this out because come on…we NEED a ‘Watch the Throne 2!’

HBO’s Emmett Till Miniseries From Producer Jay-Z and Will Smith Lands Writer

screen-shot-2016-09-26-at-3-57-11-pm

By: Briana Phipps

Steven Caple Jr. has been tapped to write HBO’s upcoming miniseries on Emmett Till from a stellar producing team that includes Jay Z, Will Smith, Casey Affleck and Aaron Kaplan.

The untitled mini, currently in development, will tell the heartbreaking story of 14-year-old black teenager Emmett Till, who was brutally murdered after allegedly whistling at a white woman in Mississippi in 1955. His brutal murder galvanized the burgeoning civil rights movement.

Caple will write a script based on the book Emmett Till: The Murder That Shocked The World And Propelled The Civil Rights Movement by Devery Anderson.

The project is being executive produced by Roc Nation’s Jay Z, Jay Brown and Ty Ty Smith, Overbrook Entertainment’s Will Smith and James Lassiter, Kapital Entertainment’s Aaron Kaplan, The Affleck Middleton Project’s Casey Affleck and John Middleton, Serendipity Film Group’s Rosanna Grace, as well as Alex Foster and David Clark.

Caple wrote and directed “The Land,” about skateboarders caught in the drug world of his native Cleveland. The film, his feature debut, was selected for the 2016 Sundance Film Festival and was acquired by IFC Films.

This news was first reported by Variety.
