Nicki Minaj Going To Perform On SNL

Nicki Minaj will perform on Saturday Night Live on January 29th. No word on the song she will perform on SNL. It will most likely be more than one song as normally most music artists on there perform two or three songs on the show. With the next video from Nicki Minaj will be "Moment 4 Life" which features Drake which we have a preview of the video. Then she is already started filming the video for her next single which is expected to be "Fly" which features Rihanna as they tweeted a picture of them on the set of it.

On the sidenote Nicki Minaj has denied that she is not living with Rihanna after rumors said were on the internet. Rumors started as they tweeted the picture of each other on the set of "Fly". Below is what she told MTV about the rumor.
"I don't know where people got this really insane, hilarious, random rumor that she and I were living together," Minaj explained in an interview. "We just shot the video for a song I have on the album I have called 'Fly,' and when I saw her, the first thing I said was, 'So, did you hear we're living together?' and we just started cracking up laughing. She was like, 'Yo, I can't believe that people are, like, this ridiculous. So we Twit-Pic'd ourselves, and she put it on Twitter and said 'Me and Nicki at our new pad' or something. The funny thing is, people didn't realize we were joking. People still were hitting me like, 'Oh my God, you're so lucky. You and Rihanna living together?' It was like, 'What?' It's like, you can't even be sarcastic anymore. It was hilarious, though...No, we're not getting cozy. I mean, we're not getting cozy yet. I mean, there is a possibility 'cause she's just like a bad b*tch. So you just never know!" (MTV)
More information the Young Money artist said about shooting the video "Fly" and Rihanna. Which she talked about it to E Online. Its all below and it did make me laugh what she said.

"We're shooting the video with Rihanna for 'Fly' this weekend," Minaj said in an interview last Friday. "We're going to save the world in more ways than one with the video and that's all I can say about that... I love Ri-Ri! I mean, when she's not grabbing my a** [at the American Music Awards] she's a sweet girl...I like everyone. I don't listen to music based on genre. Like, I'll hear a song and then I'll live for that song for like months and I'll be like, 'Who the h*ll is that?' I listen to Taylor Swift. I like Coldplay. I listen to gospel a lot. I listen to anything that's just beautiful music." (E! Online)

What Slaughterhouse Say About Signing To Shady Records?

After the announcement of Slaughterhouse signing to Eminem label Shady Records. Three members of the group have spoke about joining the label and talked about the next album. So what did the members say and what can expect? Royce Da 5'9 said Eminem wants Slaughterhouse to do what they done with there first LP. He also went on to say getting Dr Dre production would be an honor and definitely someone they want to wrok with. The goal is to put the album out somewhen this year and they will have more time to work on it. As there first album they only worked six days on it so think what a few months would be like.

Crooked I said its good for hip-hop as a whole as its got four members from all different places. Then went on to say about the West Coast saying its good for it. How Slaughterhouse was formed and this deal will get there music more on the radio. One of the main things he said the group are going to come with the same style as before which is lyrical ability of the four members. Joe Budden interview with RealTalkNY about the deal he said what the group was passionate about and it was say with thing Eminem was passionate about. Went on to say this album will have a bigger budget for it and how Eminem is very passionate was the group and signing them. He said its going to be very competitive which you have to agree as in Slaughterhouse you got four lyrical artists then when they do a song with Eminem, there all wanting to have the best verse.

There has not been a interview yet with Joell Ortiz about signing to Eminem label or with the other signing Yelawolf. The label still has Eminem's group D-12 who have been working on a new album together still no date for it though. 50 Cent is also still on it who been working and writting on his new album since last year which is expected to come out this year. Another artist Cashis is still on the label and Slim Da Mobster who signed to Dr Dre label as well.

Question - Female Mcs?

What is happening to female hip-hop artists? After hearing some new music from Foxy Brown and Lil Kim in recent days I just want to know whats going on. Foxy Brown song was a dissed towards Lil Kim which you hear here. What is the point of this song its harming her career you cant even hear what she saying that well. Then after the Kim song "Black Friday" which was meant to be a diss to Nicki Minaj which was awful. Why are they making songs like this its ruining there past success? Both have been the biggest female hip-hop artists at one point in there career. But that was then this is now.

I just want to see a Lauryn Hill come back just think what it would do it hip-hop it make artists have to raise there game. After she headline Rock The Bells last year people were saying she going to return. Then some unreleased music from her hit the internet which no one knew where it came from. Look at another female artist Jean Grae she very talented and never disapoints in her music. There are a few female hip-hop artists out there its justs a lack of recession as not many are hitting the main stream.

Hopefully we will see some underground female artists breakthrough or something. Its lacking at this current time as all the attention is on Nicki Minaj at the moment which I say she deserves it. After getting signed to Young Money she has risen to the top of hip-hop which you cant argue. When I say top of hip-hop last year she was one of the hottest artists of winning awards, breaking records for records sales, number one songs in the music charts and many more.
