First Rick Ross, Now Pharrell?

Footage leaked on the internet yesterday revealing that Pharrell Williams was at one point a security officer. For muppets… Really, I have no idea what this is from.

Real Talk Barack

Barack Obama doesn’t care about jack-people.

Jay-Z Beats The Beatles. Kind Of.

Jay got the #1 spot this week with a better-than-expected 465,448 total albums sold. Rae sold 400,000 less, which is also better-than-expected even though the album was arguably better-than-BP3. Buuuut The Beatles are the real winners with roughly 485,000 total albums sold this week after the release of the remaster of their entire catalogue. #1’s still good though.

The Black Keys – Hoochie Coo (Feat. Mos Def & Jim Jones)

Dame Dash recently reached out to The Black Keys to see if they were interested in Hip-Hop. What resulted is Blak Roc, an album pairing the Keys with rappers including Q-Tip, Ludacris, Raekwon, Pharaoh Monche, & ODB. The LP will apparently be released independently by Dash, who had this to say:
My assistants, who are now actually A&Rs, were going to a Black Keys concert for their birthday and I wasn’t invited,” he explained. “Usually on their birthdays we all do it together and the reason why I wasn’t invited was because the concert was sold out . And I had never heard of The Black Keys and I was like y’all still gonna go without me. And they was like ‘Yo it’s The Black Keys.” So I was like, lemme hear this group. So I start listening to them and they actually became my favorite group. They were on heavy rotation so we just reached out and we kicked it with them and I was like, ‘I wonder what would happen if we got Jim Jones and the Keys in the studio’ and Jim came in and all of a sudden Mos came in and then [it] just built from there.

Blak Roc drops Black Friday.
