New Video: Nicki Minaj F/ Chris Brown & Nas – ‘Right By Your Side’

This is definitely radio friendly with lots of crossover appeal. I said immediately upon hearing this Nicki should count this as single and low and behold a video surfaces on yesterday.

New Music: Nas – ‘Daughters’

The struggles of raising a daughter can be incredibly hard especially for a single dad. In a world filled with Facebook, Twitter, Tagged and every other thinkable social networking hub the dangers of losing our young ladies to an unforseen world is alarming…..

Thankfully Nas sees what’s really not good out there as he shares his own experiences with raising a daughter. Nas speaks about the increasing dangers that may await young princesses and raps about how his own daughter was posing on photo-sharing site…… with a box of condoms (Safe Sex is The Best Sex)…..

Anyway I’m thoroughly enjoying the direction Nas is taking with his new album ‘Life Is Good’ which is dropping in stores July 17th.

Take a listen…

New Music: Nicki Minaj Ft. Drake/Nas/Young Jeezy/ – ‘Champion’

Nicki Minaj has recruited some top heavy ammunition for her forthcoming album and the proof can be found in the pudding. Label Mate Drake, Young Jeezy, and hip hop royalty Nas join Nicki Minaj on the highly anticipated ‘Champion’.

It’s quite the best Nicki flow I’ve heard in a while and she definitely holds her own among her male counterparts. It would have been cool to see them go ham but the mellow ‘Champion‘gives us opportunity to divulge and take in their signature styles one by one.

Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded will be in stores April 2nd in both standard and deluxe versions
