Wu-Tang Clan Will Release New Album On Black Friday

At the beginning of the year Wu-Tang Clan made headlines all over the United States when they announced that only one copy of their album Once Upon A Time In Shaolin would be released, the Clan has now announced a new strategy for the release of their new album, A Better Tomorrow.

Yesterday, RZA revealed that the album would be released around Black Friday or November 28, and that a limited edition Boombotix portable speaker would be released with five album tracks and three bonus tracks. He also added that only 3,000 would be made.

“I had the idea pop up into my head, for a while, about music being kind of disconnected to us. Of being so digitized and accessible, but yet not tangible,” said RZA as he described his motivation for the idea of the speaker.

“But this thing here, a tangible item, like your old Walkman or your old cassette, or your old record, that’s what this is bringing back,” he added.

What is your opinion on the idea of the speaker? Do you think it will be successful or a fail?

2 Chainz Drops Almost $300 On A Burger

How much would you be willing to spend on a burger? Five, Ten maybe $13? Well if you follow 2 Chainz you know that he’s getting money and spending it as well.

According to MTV news, 2 Chainz spent $295 on a burger made by Chef Joe Calderone, which was served at New York City’s Serendipity 3. The burger named “Le Burger Extravagant” looks up to what it is billed to be.

The burger contains Japanese beef, cheese that was aged in a cave and extraordinarily expensive caviar. Not only did it contain these rare ingredients but it also had 24 karat gold shavings on top of the bun.

“This burger was more than just food; it was an experience for me. I’m gonna have to challenge my chef to order some things from a cave,” said the rapper, 2 Chainz.

According to the chef, all of the profits made from the sales of the burger go to the Bowery Mission, which offers food and shelter to the homeless of New York City.

What do you think about this? Is the good cause worth the price of the burger or nah?

Gabrielle Union, Meagan Good and Iggy Azalea Are All Victims Of Leaked Nudes

As we all know, there has been a “leak” of celebrity nudes on the internet thanks to an unknown hacker(s). First Kim Kardashian, then this morning, Meagan Good, Rihanna, Gabrielle Union and Iggy Azalea.

Most people were not surprised by Kim’s or Rihanna’s but Iggy’s was by far one of the worst.

According to Inflexwetrust.com, Gabrielle and Dwayne Wade released joint statements that said, “It has come to our attention that our private moments, that were shared and deleted solely between my husband and myself, have been leaked by some vultures.”

They added, “I can’t help but be reminded that since the dawn of time women and children, specifically women of color, have been victimized, and the power over their own bodies taken from them. These atrocities against women and children continue worldwide. For anyone out there also being affected by these and other hacking and hate crimes – We send our love, support and prayers. We have done nothing wrong.”

Along with this, Gabrielle and Dwayne are having the FBI investigate who the hacker was. Following behind their steps Meagan Good released a statement as well. Good has been getting a lot of criticism via the internet (with memes) the fact that her husband, DeVon Franklin is a well-known pastor has a lot to do with it. 

“We all know these pictures were for my husband… and at the end of the day evidently we all know how I feel about my titties,” She said.

What is your opinion on this story? Is the thought that someone can just hack your phone frightening? Or are the celebrities at blame?

XXL Hip-Hop Magazine Prints Its Final Issue Jay R the Superstar | Nights

XXL Hip-Hop Magazine Prints Its Final Issue

A week after VIBE magazine shut down officially, XXL magazine is set to follow.

The hip-hop magazine has been around for 17 years. It made sure that fans received all the news on rap music the old fashioned way, before the internet/blogosphere took over. With technology taking over this generation’s attention, young readers find online publications more attractive than the print ones. Therefore, XXL was bought out by Townsquare Media.

The October/November edition of XXL, currently at the printers, will be the final edition of the magazine. Ben Harris, the president of Harris Publications, which began publishing XXL in 1997, said, “We incubated something digitally, but the Townsquare people can take it to the next level with their digital expertise.”

Although most buy-outs lead to layoffs, Bill Wilson, the chief content officer of Townsquare says that “11 XXL editorial and digital ad sales team employees will be offered jobs.”

Wilson also added that it is possible that the publication will return to print for rare, special issues. “We think XXL has strong potential in both the digital and live events market,” he added.

Is there a possibility that all media will eventually discontinue printed publications? With XXL being around for so many years, is it fair to the audience to just discontinue the magazine? What’s your opinion?
