[www.mixtapedrop.info] Exclusive #DropSt**r$ #ModelOFTheWeek - Kristina Love @XLoveKristinaX

My name is Kristina Love and I currently am living in the Bay area of CA. I am 25 years old (DOB is 3/23/1987) and have been modeling now for around a year. I have done print and magazine work, but am wanting to start working more on music videos. I was born and raised in the South, so I definitely would consider myself a country girl. I moved to the west coast after finishing grad school in order to broaden my options in my business career but also to pursue modeling. I am a very outgoing and artistic person and I love the creative aspect of modeling. I love to try new concepts with photo shoots and really think outside the box. I will not shoot nude (implied is ok) and am willing to travel pretty much anywhere.

Miley Cyrus Has Some Advice For Justin Beiber

While visiting The Tonight Show With Jay Leno Thursday (Jan. 30), Miley Cyrus gave her pal Justin Bieber some advice. The Biebs recently got caught up in a DUI arrest last week and has been on his bad boy behavior. for staying out of trouble with the law. The “Wrecking Ball” singer said that JB should make his Benjamins work for him and "Pay people to make sure you don't get in trouble and party at your house, buy a house, and add a club to it. You've got a lot of money," she said. The Smiler gang leader also told Leno how she’s managed to stay out of trouble. "I'm not doing anything illegal! I'm doing a lot of s--t but I'm not doing anything illegal! So that's all right. Everything I do is legal in California."

Eve Owes The Taxman $327,000

It looks like Eve may be facing some trouble, as it appears she owes over 300 grand to the IRS. It might well be a good thing that the rapper, Eve, is engaged to the billionaire, Maximillion Cooper (whose name resembles that of a cartoon billionaire). The "Rich Girl" rapper faces allegations of unpaid taxes from 2007, 2010, 2011 in addition to another claim for over 10 grand from the federal government in 2012. The total tally: $327,000. Of course, if you redact her engagement from the record, Eve still looks forward to the release of her new album, Lip Lock, and a starring role in a new ABC comedy. So she can still recoup her losses even if she ends up having to pay the IRS back in full.

Jadakiss Says “Grammy’s Aint Hip Hop”

Jadakiss and Styles P find themselves free agents and disgruntled by the Grammy upset with the Kendrick Lamar/Macklemore "Best Rap Album" upset. Talking to the Breakfast Club, Jadakiss and Styles P find themselves to be free agents for the first time in a while, after Def Jam was reluctant to give them their full support. Jadakiss also find himself angered at the outcome for "Best Rap Album," as many were when Kendrick Lamar's heralded album lost to Macklemore's. On the subject, Jadakiss says: "60/40, the white man still win," says Jadakiss. "Grammys ain’t Hip Hop. We they do the Hip Hop categories on the Grammy’s. Every nominee, only one or two are really Hip Hop." This is a sentiment shared by many. What do you think? Is Jadakiss on the money? Or is he being unfair? Check out the full interview with Jadakiss, and the rest of The Lox trio, talk it out with The Breakfast Club, below.

Rick Ross Unveils New "MasterMind" Deluxe Edition Cover Art

Rick Ross has unveiled the deluxe edition cover art for the upcoming Mastermind album, and as with the standard edition, it may not be what you expect from the Bawse. The album art features a close up of Rozay's face, with a colorful splash of paint coming out the right-hand corner, however, if you see the full image as he displays it in his YouTube video, you'll see a gun is raised to Ross' head (it seems by Ross' own hand) and the paint splatters are a result of a gun shot to the head. Ross previously tweeted the cover art was done by his favorite artist, Mr. Brainwash. Peep the full painting above and the one used as cover art below. Mastermind drops March 4th.

A$AP Mob Announce Album Release Date For "L.O.R.D."

A$AP Mob are releasing their album "L.O.R.D." on March 4th. The A$AP Mob has been relatively quiet in past months. We heard in August that there would be an official A$AP Mob album to follow up their mixtape, Lord$ Never Worry, and although it was originally supposed to drop in October, obviously October has came and went without signs of an album from the collective. Now we've received word of a release date for the upcoming A$AP Mob album, which continues the mixtape theme with the title L.O.R.D. The album has a release date of March 4th, according to XXL. There aren't any other details yet, but we can assume it'll feature collaborations from A$AP Rocky, A$AP Ferg, A$AP Twelvyy, A$AP Nast, A$AP Ant, and probably some notable guest appearances. We'll update you once more details on the collaborative effort arrive. You can go back to Lord$ Never Worry in the meantime.

Drake Gets A Tattoo Of His Dad's Mugshot

Drake adds a portrait of his dad to his collection of tattoos. So you know it's real. We all know how Game loves to document every tattoo he gets, and in recent months, he's paid homage to many people through tattoos. Drake is not quite as vocal about his tattoos, but we did see him get a tattoo of one of his favorite artists, Aaliyah, back in 2011, and more recently, on November 18th, he showed off his tattoo of the letter "H" for Houston. Now Drizzy has decided to pay tribute to another artist on his body, with a mini portrait of his dad, Dennis Graham. You may recognize his father from the "Worst Behavior" music video, where he swagged out in a pink suit alongside Drake's uncles, out in Memphis. Funnily enough, Drake decided to tattoo his father's mugshot for the portrait. The ink was done by Dr. Woo of Shamrock Social Club in Hollywood this past Saturday. This latest tattoo is in addition to portraits of the previously mentioned Aaliyah, his grandmother, his mother and his uncle, all of which are on his back. Check out images of the new tattoo and the original photo below

Mike WiLL Made It Reveals Collabos With Kanye West, Pharrell, Pusha T On Future's "Honest"

Mike WiLL Made It discusses Future's upcoming album "Honest", and reveals he's started working on a new album for Diddy. Future tweeted the other day that we would be receiving the official album art and finally, a release date for his delayed album Honest in the coming week. While we wait on that information, Mike WiLL Made It, who's been working on Honest with Future, has revealed a few collaborations for the LP which we were not previously aware of. We've seen the photo evidence of Future and Andre 3000 connecting, as well, we were told about Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus features for Honest. As it turns out, Future has some other big named-artists on the forthcoming debut, including Kanye West and Pharrell. As Mike WiLL Made It told Rolling Stone at a pre-Grammy red carpet gala, "We have some good collaborations on there like Nicki Minaj, Drake, Kanye West, Pharrell, Pusha T. It’s a real dope album and it should be eventful when it comes out. We’re trying to figure out the exact date right now." In addition to revealing those details, Mike WiLL announced that he's working on a new album for Bad Boy Diddy."Diddy – we’re working on a new album right now. I’m a fan of Puff," he said, without revealing more details than that. In addition to working on Future and Diddy albums, Mike also has his own album on his plate, and promises the project will be nothing but heat. "I’ve been working with Kendrick, Nicki, Future, Rick Ross, Drake, everybody. I’m trying to figure out what songs make the cut. My album has to be the 10 hottest songs. It has to be like the Now CD. It’s going to be called Established in 1989 Part 3 because I drew up three other mixtapes earlier, Part 1, Part 2, Part 2.5." Which project are you most excited to hear: Future, Diddy or Mike WiLL Made It?

Game Would Like George Zimmerman To Fight Him In A Celebrity Boxing Match

Game mentioned that he would like to see the infamous George Zimmerman, at the other side of the ring with him in a celebrity boxing match, promoted by Damon Feldman. Game is known to sport a short fuse and pack a mean punch. However this time, he has a victim in mind: the notorious George Zimmerman, of national Trayvon Martin infamy. Of course, many other rappers have expressed their opinion on George Zimmerman and like the rest of the world, they are not pleased with him or the shocking verdict handed to him. But we like Game's idea the best: to box George Zimmerman in a ring in a celebrity boxing match, as he told TMZ. On the topic, he said: "I will beat the fuck out of him,” says Game, while assuring us that, “I would not be boxing for me. I’d be boxing for the legacy of Trayvon Martin and for his family." He also expressed that it would be a good demonstration on how to solve your disputes without a gun. Oh, sweet Karma. What do you think about the whole prospect?

Joe Budden Addresses Potential Battle Against Hollow Da Don

Joe Budden says he is going to battle Hollow Da Don "once the business gets right." Joe Budden addressed a potential battle against Hollow Da Don in a Twitter update and in an Instagram post made today (January 30). Budden posted an image of himself standing in front of Hollow Da Don. "Niggas always think they want a problem til they get it," Budden wrote in a caption. Hollow Da Don also posted the same photograph with the following caption: "Who want to see me vs Joe Budden." Battle rapper JC asked Budden to "lock" the battle in via Twitter. Budden responded that he and Hollow would do that "once the business gets right." Yesterday (January 29) Budden and his fellow Slaughterhouse members announced a Battle Rap tournament that pits eight battle rappers against each other. Slaughterhouse also announced Road to Total Slaughter, a reality show that is set to air the preparation for each battle, including matches that feature Dizaster, Daylyt and Math Hoffa, among others. Hollow Da Don recently battled Loaded Lux as part of UW Battle League's "High Stakes." JC @ThekidJ_c @chillajones @JoeBudden @HollowDaDonLOM don't pump fake lol lock dat in!!!!

50 Cent Says Kanye West Can't Just Walk Into The High-End Fashion World

50 Cent says luxury car companies no longer have to put out commercials thanks to rappers. While touring the country last year as part of his Yeezus tour, Chicago rapper Kanye West spoke on his desire to infiltrate the fashion world. Through tour rants and radio interviews, the G.O.O.D. Music emcee took aim at the fashion world as he called out the likes of Louis Vuitton, Nike, and other companies. Fellow rapper 50 Cent recently commented on Ye and the musician’s attempt to break into high fashion during an interview with XXL. According to Fifty, the Windy City emcee’s goal is one that won’t be met overnight. “In Kanye’s case, wanting to be a part of high-end fashion that’s a process,” 50 Cent said. “It’s not something that just happens. It’s like—they’re not gonna allow you to tomorrow wake up, say ‘This idea, that idea. This idea and I’m in. and I’m hot.’” Prior to speaking on Kanye, 50 Cent touched on the evolution of fashion in Hip Hop. He recalled seeing rappers sporting white t-shirts with their names or labels plastered on them at past BET Hip Hop Awards. The Queens emcee then went on to point out that Hip Hop artists are now leaning more towards what he referred to as “European-cut clothing.” “It’s a shift in the way the actual audience is hanging. Now they’re into high-end clothing now,” he said. “They’re wearing European-cut clothing. And as clothes got tighter and tighter and tighter they start buying designer clothing that’s—the person probably wouldn’t want to see them in their clothes. But they don’t realize how much influence pop culture actually has.” Fifty also discussed high-end car companies like Ferrari and Rolls Royce during his interview with XXL. He pointed out that most of these high-end car companies rarely release commercials since rap videos double as ads for them. “Just look at the major car companies,” the rapper said. “Look at Ferrari, Bentley, Rolls Royce, Lamborghini. Those car companies, when’s the last time you saw a commercial for them? They don’t have to if they’re in our music [videos]. And we’re not sending them a bill for it. You see what I’m saying?” Although 50 Cent has taken time recently to promote his SMS Audio line of headphones, the rapper at one point did launch his own fashion line, G-Unit Clothing Company. Backed by Ecko Unlimited founder Marc Ecko, the G-Unit Clothing Company launched in 2003 and has since taken a hiatus.

Azealia Banks Claims She's "The Best Female In Hip-Hop"

Azealia Banks boldly claims that she is the "best female in hip-hop." Azealia Banks is back at it again. She knows exactly what buttons to push to make controversy on Twitter. Following her recent rant against Universal Records, where she begged someone from Sony to take over her deal, she's been on Twitter today declaring herself as the best female rapper in the game. The thing is, Azealia hasn't really been dropping music lately so how can we judge this statement? Last time we heard from Ms. Banks was when she hopped on Britney Spears' "Work Bitch" for a remix and that was in October. This lack of music could be blamed on her major label issues, Azealia herself stated on Twitter, "My fans really need some new music. I've been gratefully riding off of mixtape fumes for the past two years but I'm more ready than ever....." Back to the controversy at hand, Azealia took to Twitter to boldly declare, "I'm the best female in hip-hop. Sorry, not sorry. I'm better than most of you niggas too. Real Talk." She continued, "I'm the only new female rapper with her own voice. All the other girls are doing the post-nicki minaj thing." Do you agree with Azealia? Strongly disagree? Let us know.

Petition To Deport Justin Bieber May Be Reviewed By White House

Justin Bieber Arrested For DUI, Drag Racing In Miami BeachJustin Bieber Arrested For DUI, Drag Racing In Miami Beach There's A Petition Asking Jay Z To End His Partnership w/ Barneys After Discrimination Allegations SurfaceThere's A Petition Asking Jay Z To End His Partnership w/ Barneys After Discrimination Allegations Surface Slaughterhouse Announces New Battle Rap Series Slaughterhouse Announces New Battle Rap Series "Total Slaughter"; Reveals Producers For New Album Online petition to deport Justin Bieber reaches the necessary 100,000 signatures to reach White House. By now, most of us are aware of Justin Bieber's recent antics. From egging his neighbor's home to getting a D.U.I. in his yellow Lambo, the Biebs has been runnin "wild" in these streets. Justin has caused such a stir lately that people are no longer sitting back and watching it happen. There is an online petition going around right now to deport Justin Bieber back to his home country of Canada. It’s so serious, that the White House must issue a statement regarding the matter, according to the rules. The online petition, titled "Deport Justin Bieber and revoke his green card," was created less than a week ago and has already surpassed the 100,000 required signatures long before the 30 day deadline for the "We the People" petition program. The program states that by the White House rules, any petition receiving 100,00 signatures must issue a response from them. The petition reads something like this: "We the people of the United States feel that we are being wrongly represented in the world of pop culture," the petition states. "We would like to see the dangerous, reckless, destructive, and drug abusing, Justin Bieber deported and his green card revoked. He is not only threatening the safety of our people but he is also a terrible influence on our nations youth. We the people would like to remove Justin Bieber from our society." As of 9 P.M. tonight, the online petition has over 160K signatures. Experts say not to expect a statement from the White House any time soon however. A facetious pop-star petition isn’t exactly a top priority for the White House. Let it be known, DUIs and drag-racing aren't deportable offenses. As The Hollywood Reporter points out, immigration visas can only be revoked in the event of a violent crime or a prison sentence that exceeds one year; Bieber faces many potential consequences, but if he is sentenced to prison, he'd only get up to six months for drag racing and up to six months for the DUI. So basically, it doesn't hurt to voice your opinion, but it probably won't get him kicked out of the U.S. You can sign the online petition HERE.

Lil Boosie Reportedly Being Released From Prison In February

According to reports, Boosie will officially be released from prison in February. Lil Boosie has been incarcerated since 2009, and while many rumors of his return to rap have circulated since his prison bid began, it seems as though the Baton Rouge cult legend is finally coming home. Originally arrested on a parole violation and third strike marijuana charge, Boosie unfortunately extended his stay after being caught trying to smuggle drugs into prison. The rapper was able to turn things around following the incident, acquiring his GED while behind bars. Initial reports indicated that the Bad Azz emcee would see release in August of 2014, though brother and manager to the rapper, Taquari Hatch revealed that he could be out a great deal earlier if he completed two classes. Sources now report that Boosie's good behavior has paid off, earning him a release date of February 13, 2014. Only about two weeks away! His official twitter account also tweeted "#COUNTDOWN" last week, so it appears that the reports could definitely be accurate. LIL BOOSIE ✔ @BOOSIEOFFICIAL Follow #COUNTDOWN 9:52 PM - 23 Jan 2014

Nas Speaks About The Possibility Of "Illmatic 2"

Nas is asked if he would ever consider doing an "Illmatic 2." The thought of a sequel to Illmatic would make many a Hip-Hop aficionado shudder, equal in both excitement and nervousness. For good reason, too. Nas' Illmatic is considered one of the greatest Hip-Hop albums of all time by many and some would even consider it sacred. But what exactly does Nas think on the matter? When asked by VIBE whether he would consider a sequel, Nas pondered: "Yes and No, I've thought about it before," Nas says. "I definitely thought about that. It just has to flow, it has to be natural. I can work on that and if I don't like it [just scrap it]." But he adds, with a note of finality, "I have to feel it. It got to to be honest." What do you think of an Illmatic sequel? Great idea? Bad idea? Really bad idea? Let us know.

Bun B Announces "The Trillest" Tour With Kirko Bangz

Bun B announces a trill tour with fellow Southern rapper, Kirko Bangz. We recently saw Bun B and Kirko Bangz hit up The Breakfast Club together, and that wasn't the first time the two Houston rappers linked up. They've collaborated on tracks before, like the "What Yo Name Iz" remix, and more recently, Bun B's "Triller" record. The two emcees will be connecting yet again, this time for an upcoming Bun B tour. Bun B took to his Instagram account to announce "The Trillest" tour.

J. Cole Speaks On His New Dreamville Imprint

J. Cole speaks on his big move with the Dreamville imprint. As we reported last night, J. Cole has announced the official launch of his Dreamville imprint, which will host his Dreamvillain artists whom we've become familiar with through Cole, such as Bas and Omen. The Cole World rapper made the announcement prior to hitting the stage at Madison Square Gardens in NYC, and after he got off stage, Forbes was able to catch up with him to get a few words about the move. “We provide the artist, the direction, the guidance, the music, the new ideas, and they provide muscle and years of experience of really giving artists the proper push,” Cole said referring to linking up with Interscope Records. “We hope to add to the list of legendary albums that were made over in that building.” He continued, “As an executive it gives me the opportunity to sign acts and break them, but as a producer it allows me to produce someone’s entire album and put it out – that’s what I really look forward to.” Cole tipped his hat to those music moguls that came before him specifically Dr. Dre and Jay Z, “It’s definitely a path that’s been made possible by the Dr. Dres and the Jay Zs – these guys who had amazing artistic ability in terms of rapping and production and song writing, but also had a double-sided executive mind.” Yesterday was a pretty big day for North Carolina native. Not only was it his birthday, but he dropped a Dreamville compilation mixtape, and received his Roc Nation chain from Hov himself. Congratulations are in order!

Kendrick Lamar On Grammy Snub: "Everything Happens For A Reason"

Kendrick Lamar speaks about The Grammys and how they undervalue hip-hop. The Grammy Awards were once again in the crossfire of the hip-hop community when Macklemore took home four Grammys and Kendrick Lamar took home zero. We've heard Macklemore's stance on the subject plenty of times now, he even put a text message he sent to K. Dot following his Grammy win on display for the world to see. He's basically being the most humble/regretful Grammy winner ever. We have yet to hear from the good kid himself how he feels about the Grammy snub. After a performance in New York City last night with fellow West Coaster Dom Kennedy, XXL caught up with Kendrick to get his take on the Grammys. Kendrick had nothing but praise for his competitor. "It’s well deserved; he did what he did, man," Kendrick said. "He went out there and hustled and grinded. Everything happens for a reason; the universe comes back around, that’s how it go." The Compton native went on to speak on the Grammys undervaluing hip-hop. "I definitely feel like they should always have more of the culture up in there, for sure, because we definitely stand out just like any other genre," Kendrick said. "We part of the world. We part of the movement. So I think any awards, including the Grammys, should always push for more hip-hop because it’s music as a whole, it’s not just splitting different regions. Everything moves as far as sound and vibrations, and that’s how it goes. And we are a part of that." Kendrick also confirmed that he has no idea when or what his next project will be. As he told XXL, "I wouldn’t even know. I got to get back into the studio and vibe out. But once I get in there, for sure, I’ll let y’all know." We're waiting.

Kanye West Settles Assault Case For Over $250,000

Kanye West is shelling out over $250,000 to the young man he allegedly assaulted in Beverly Hills earlier in the month. The kid who notoriously tossed some racial slurs at Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, and subsequently caught a beatdown from 'Ye earlier in the month is in for quite the payday. Sources tell TMZ that the Kanye and the young man have come to a settlement over the altercation, which will see Yeezus dishing out upwards of $250,000. The D.A. has yet to decide on whether to actually charge the rapper with battery over the incident, but following the settlement, the victim will no longer be cooperating. On top of that, the jury was none too impressed by the racist remarks aimed at Kim and 'Ye, so it's looking like the rapper is off the hook. Apparently, the kid was looking for something in the higher 6 figure range, so it's possible he's made a considerable amount more from the exchange.

Ty Dolla $ign is making a name for himself as a solo artist, but he's also got a potential career as a songwriter. In a new interview with the breakfast club, Ty$ revealed some of the artists he's written for, as well as giving some updates on his next moves. "I've got other songs I've been writing on," Ty said of his songwriting side hustle. "That 'Headband' song with B.o.B-- a lot of people don't know I'm on that doing the little backgrounds. J. Lo's song she just dropped with Mustard, I did all her backgrounds, she re-sung them." Ty also revealed that he wrote a good chunk of Chris Brown's "Loyal," which, in retrospect, definitely bears his vocal inflection. "I wrote the first verse and the hook, and then he wrote the second verse," he said. The singer couldn't be happier with the coverage West Coast hip hop is getting these days. "I'm just happy to be a part of it," he said. "All the homies, we're doing our stuff, me, Mustard, YG, we even got Sage The Gemini going platinum from the Bay," he exclaimed, before citing "Toot It And Boot It," as turning point in his career."That was the first song we did that really changed my life, and his life. Now he got "My Hitta", I've got "Paranoid"." As far as his album, we should see something in the warmer months of 2014. "We're trying to do something for the summer. Either July or September, said Ty. "I know Mustard's coming out either June or July, so I'm gonna let his come out, and then I'll do mine right after." Dolla Sign will also be touring a lot in the near future. "Tyga just hit me up to do his tour, Big Sean wants me to his tour, and Wiz we're gonna do our tour in the summer again, the "Under The Influence Tour 3". Watch the full interview below.

The music world has contributed to countless half time shows for the Super Bowl over the years. As expected, Pepsi and the NFL decided to return the favor for the biggest night in music this year.. While promoting their own Super Bowl half time show featuring Bruno Mars, Pepsi hosted a mini-concert from the likes of Terry Bradshaw, Deion Sanders, Shannon Sharpe, Mathew Stafford and Mike Ditka in a 2 and a half minute long commercial that aired last night during The Grammys. Super Bowl Champion Deion Sanders belted out an auto-tuned ballad which Bradshaw cuts short when he comes in and kicks off a pyrotechnic country rock show. Only until Sharpe grabs the stage Kanye West style, spitting some bars while clips of Kim Kardshian played by New York Jets player Nick Mangold, are shown on the big screen. It was a total re-make of the infamous motorcycle scene from Yeezy's ‘Bound 2’ video. Detroit Lions player Mathew Stafford then comes in with an electronic pop light show, only to lead to the group joining together and singing in unison while Ditka channels his inner Miley as he swings across the stage on a football shaped wrecking ball. Catch cameos from Juicy J, Wale and Jhene Aiko in the audience while the NFL stars take a step away from their day jobs and become performing artists.
