Mel'isa Morgan Talks Collaborating With Jay Z & Mary J. Blige & How No One Can Sample Her Music Without Sending Her A Check!

A few weeks back, I had the honor of interviewing one of R&B's greats, Mel'isa Morgan. If you young bucks have no idea who she is, she sang classic 70's and 80's hits like "Fools Paradise", "Do Me Baby" and "Love Changes".

One of my most favorite singles from Mel'isa Morgan would have to have been "Fools Paradise" which you can take a listen to below:

That classic was loved by so many that even Jay Z and Mary J. Blige collab'ed and did "Can't Knock The Hustle" which was off the premise of Mel'isa Morgan's "Fools Paradise". If you don't remember that collabo, check it out below:

Well, check out what Mel'isa Morgan had to say about that collabo and how no one can use her voice, words, or samples without first sending out that check first below:

R&B Diva, Monifah, Talks Heavy D & Her Fondest Memory Of Him

In this part 1 interview with R&B Diva, Monifah, I ask her about her thoughts on legendary rapper/her mentor, Heavy D.

For those who may not be aware, Heavy D is the person responsible for putting Monifah out into the limelight. He saw her singing and was impelled to work with her and showcase her talent. Not to long after discovering Monifah and her talent for singing, Monifah signed to Uptown Records where she became a household name and voice of R&B during the late 90's and early 2000's.

During our interview, Monifah recalls a time when she had fallen out with Heavy D over a Christmas gift he had gotten her and how they hadn't talked for 2 days after that argument. The story was cute, fun and entertaining and I'm sure you guys will get a kick out of it. So check out her story below:

Please stay tuned to my part 2 interview where Monifah and I talk about the come back, or lack there of, of the highly popular reality show "R&B Divas Atlanta".


Was Amber Rose Cheating On Wiz Khalifa With Gene Simmons' Son?

Word around town is that Amber Rose was spotted getting really comfy and cozy with Gene Simmons' son, Nick Simmons! So I'm guessing the rumors about Amber Rose cheating with Nick Cannon are definitely false, but were they 100% false?

According to TMZ.com, Amber Rose and Nick Simmons were spotted together at Nick Cannon's 34th birthday party celebration in L.A. at club "Playhouse". You can check out the two being real flirty in the club when you go (here).  

TMZ didn't allow folks to have the embed code that's why I had to resort to a link, but you guys can see what I mean!

However, Nick Simmons is adamant that the two are just friends! Peep his response to TMZ.com (here).

So what do you guys think? Is Amber already on to the next one? I'll hold for your thoughts!

Just last week, the crew and I interviewed popular New York stripper, Cardi B. If you haven't heard about Cardi B, then chances are you're not in the strip clubs like that.

Apparently, Cardi B is nice on the pole (or so I've heard) and her tricks outdo some other strippers who will remain nameless....Cardi B's words not mine. You can check out some of Cardi B's pole moves below:

With that being said, we talked to Cardi B about being a stripper, what her measurements were, what's allowed in the VIP room at strip clubs, and how far she let's guys go with her! So find out what her answers were below:

ThisIs50 Radio's Interview With Rah Digga Goes Viral!!

A few weeks ago, when I booked Rah Digga (formerly of the Flip Mode Squad) to come up to ThisIs50 radio, I had no idea that our interview would go viral and get so much love. A simple question was asked of a veteran female MC....and that question was....what do you think of the female rappers that are out now like Nicki Minaj, Iggy Azalea and Remy Ma? If you missed out on that interview, check it out below to find out what Rah Digga's response was:

I had no idea that Iggy herself would have responded to our interview via her Twitter page like she did. Peep Iggy's comments below:

What's even crazier is when I heard Charlamagne The God from Power 105's "The Breakfast Club" ask Lil Kim what she thought about Rah Digga's comments about Iggy! If you didn't peep that during Lil Kim's interview with Power 105 the other day, check it out below:

Big Sean Comes For Naya Rivera's Neck In "I Dont Fuck With You"

I may be a little late with this one, but I just heard a new joint from Big Sean that features E40 titled "I Don't Fuck With You".

The song is absolute fire in my book! The track was produced by DJ Mustard, Kanye West and DJ Dahi and is a song about Big Sean screaming about how much he doesn't give a fuck about his old bitch (Naya Rivera) and towards the end of the joint, he praises his new chick (Ariana Grande) YIKES!!!

I'm sure this stems from the fact that once Big Sean and Naya Rivera broke up, Naya Rivera quickly jumped the broom with someone new. Many fans were in shock about Naya's decision to get married so quickly to someone when she had just broken up with Big Sean, but that's just how the story went.

Hence, the song you're about to hear below:

Let me know what you think of it. I actually like the song and the hook is catchy as hell!!

Amber Rose Takes To Twitter To Say Wiz Khalifa Is The One Cheating

The news that Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa are getting divorced kind of rocked the Hip Hop community. I mean, I was rooting for them, but I know that sometimes things just aren't always meant to be. And so is the case with Wiz and Amber.

Not only is the divorce news devastating to hear about, but the plot thickens as folks tried to tie Amber Rose up with Nick Cannon by insinuating that she has been cheating on Wiz Khalifa with Nick Cannon. It was recently reported that Nick Cannon would start managing Amber's career, but folks were saying Amber's career wasn't the only thing he was managing.

Fast forward to today, and Amber Rose decided to take to her Twitter page to dead the Nick Cannon cheating rumors and clear things up about who was the actual one "cheating". Check out what Amber Rose had to say below:

So what do you think is the reason behind this divorce? Could it be cheating? Or could it be the two just stopped getting along? I'll hold!

So find out everything Rah Digga had to say below:


Ladies!!!! Omarion's Nudes Get Leaked!!!

With all of the nudes that have been leaking on the internet lately, many have wondered why haven't any mens nudes been leaked yet? I mean, just this past weekend, we were bombarded with nudes from Rihanna, to Gabrielle Union, to Meagan Good. And although these women look great naked and some have even issued public statements, it left many ladies wondering why haven't any mens pics been leaked?

Well, I've got the answers for you ladies!!

iCloud has leaked nudes of Omarion in the buff!! And let's just say you won't be disappointed in what you see! Unfortunately, I can't post any nudes on this site because it will interrupt me from getting my checks from my advertisers, however, I have provided a link that you can click on (no its not spam or a virus) for you to check out Omarion's nudes for yourself.

Young Thug Addresses Why He Calls His Male Friends Bae, Lovers & Hubby!!

I'm going to need Young Thug to have several seats with the publicity stunts he has been pulling lately. In an interview with "The Fader", Young Thug addressed the reason why he calls his male friends bae, lovers and hubbies.

And in all honesty, Young Thug's response is going to need more people. If this is a ploy just to get people to start talking about him and his music.....I think this is a low blow to the LGBTQ community. Looking for attention by allowing others to think that your sexuality is a factor in your career is just insulting. Maybe its just me, but I don't like it. Here's what I do think though:

Young Thug is not a homosexual, however, I do think he's a crackhead! Peep what I mean when you watch the clip below:

K. Michelle Exposes Soulja Boy For Having Relations With Transgender, Sydney Starr

I don't know who, what, where, when or why K. Michelle and Soulja Boy are arguing on social networks, but whatever the case is, they both were going at each other recently and things got pretty ugly between the two. Apparently, there seems to be some sort of misunderstanding where K. Michelle went on Power 105's "The Breakfast Club" and blasted Soulja Boy for saying he smashed when he didn't.

So Soulja Boy responded last night to K. Michelle via his Twitter page below:

K. Michelle responded with the following below:

And then the responses of all responses took place....Sydney Starr confirmed what K. Michelle had been saying when she posted the following below:

Yikes!!! What do yall think about this? I'll hold!


Gossip of The Week: Ray Rice, Tahiry, Khloe & French Montana & More!!

Now before you guys watch our "Gossip of The Week" segment, let me put out my thoughts, because it seems that people have taken my commentary the wrong way.

When it comes to the whole Ray Rice situation, I am appalled. I do NOT condone domestic violence in any way, shape or form. I, myself, was in a very violent relationship with my first children's father.....and let's just say he was far from being a father and a man, yet I stayed for almost 7 years. Make a long story short, I ended up finding my husband who showed me what a man really was and the rest is history.

In saying all that, my only concern about the whole Ray Rice situation was the fact that this footage was old....and his wife married him regardless. Which means that she forgave him at some point. So I'm not sure why this footage was released in the first place was all I was saying.

Was this footage released for financial gain? To destroy a mans career? I guess we'll never know, but for now, check out what I had to say below:

ThisIs50 Radio Interviews The Boss Man Himself, 50 Cent!!!

Just last week, us good folks over at ThisIs50 radio got a chance to interview our boss, 50 Cent. His busy schedule and hectic music promotions for the reunion of G-Unit had him out of the office for quite some time, and we were never really able to catch up with him. However, last week was a different story.

We got to chop it up real quick with our boss and talked about G-Unit's "The Beauty of Independence", the second season of "Power" and some rumors! So get ready to check it all out below:


What Beef? Nicki Minaj & Iggy Azalea Are Good!

Last night at the VMA's, Nicki Minaj had a serious wardrobe malfunction. If you missed out on that, check it out below:

So while Nicki was backstage interviewing with Rob Markman, Iggy Azalea happened to walk by and told Nicki she didn't have anything to worry about with her dress and that she did a great job. Peep that footage below:

So despite what you guys may be thinking, it seems like all is well on the homefront!

Kandi Replaces Porsha Stewart With Meelah Williams

According to ItsOnlyEntertainment.net, it seems that Porsha Stewart has run her course with Kandi's stage play titled "A Mother's Love". Not sure what the reason is behind Kandi's choice to replace Porsha Stewart is, but taking Porsha's place in the play is Meelah Williams formerly of the group 702.

Meelah will replace Porsha as Jada, the little sister of Lena, played by Kandi. Jada and Lena are in a singing group called "Brick Rose" along with D. Woods' character. Jada is married to a famous R&B singer, so it appears she has it all, but as we all know, all that glitters ain't gold.

The stage play will be going on a US tour starting Sept 4th in Columbus, GA and ending in New York City on Dec 14th. For tickets go (here).

HHGS Rumor: Did Chris Brown Stab Rihanna's Ex-Boyfriend?

It's being "alleged" that Chris Brown was involved in an apparent stabbing Wednesday night on August 20th at club VIP in New York City and the VIP nightclub is keeping it on the hush.

Apparently, a dispute broke out between Chris Brown and up-and-coming singer KISSK: Rihanna's ex-lover. KISSK was reported as having to get 13 stitches on his back..... It is "alleged" that these two have been feuding in the past because KISSK was the reason Rihanna was beatin ...

"Allegedly" the horrible night of the fight before the Grammys, Rihanna requested some very scandalous photos of the two of them which KISSK sent. Some of those photos below:

Chris saw the photos and the rest we all know..... The love for each other KISSK and Rihanna - his name was kept from being put out to the public... However, it all came to a head the other night..... The yelling, pushing and cursing match between Chris Brown and KISSK was obviously a big attraction for other patrons in the club to experience.

The incident was quickly defused, but KISSK was seen leaving the club bleeding out his back. Lil Wayne's manager Cortez Bryant urged KISSK to talk to the police, but all he said as he left club VIP was "fuck the police this will be handled my way. Chris Brown will get his. I'm NO RAT! I'm NO RAT, it's on."

Pictures of Kiss K leaving the club below:

Chris left a few minutes after in a drunkin daze. TMZ is reportly on this story as we speak, but due to Chris Brown's ongoing problems with the law, it may not be reported as of yet..... Video and pictures are leaking, but this stir has not been public until all the parties involved will be contacted.....


HHGS Confirmation: There Will Be A Season 2 of "Power"

50 Cent's new "Power" series which aired on the Starz network did really well. Everywhere I turned, I heard someone either talking about the show, or people would just ask me about the show simply because I work up at ThisIs50 radio. -_- And although I do know that filming for season 2 of "Power" will begin in about 2 weeks, that doesn't mean I'm going to spill the beans about anything else!

However, I didn't have to spill the beans about the 2nd season of the show because 50 Cent did it himself on Instagram. Peep what 50 said via BallerAlert.com and their "Comment Creepin" segment below:

So there you have it folks! 2nd season of "Power" has been confirmed!!

Floyd Mayweather Comes For 50 Cent & His Son (No Bueno)

The feud between 50 Cent and Floyd Mayweather has been getting pretty ugly. And I'm not sure if the feud is going to end well.....here's why. 50 Cent recently challenged Floyd Mayweather to a reading challenge. If you guys missed out on that challenge, check it out below:

Things got even more interesting when 50 made another IG video, this time with another challenge. Check that one out below:

After these challenges were made, the internet started circulating a tweet that Floyd (allegedly) put out to 50 Cent....however, I do want to say that when I checked Floyd's Twitter page, there was no such tweet. Not sure if he deleted it, but check out the "alleged" tweet below:

Now, I'm all for a good back and forth argument, but when folks start bringing up your children, that's when things can start to get ugly. Lord knows yall seen how I cut up on TV about my kids, so imagine how 50 is going to cut up?

Its never a good look for the folks who come for 50's children! EVER! So see how 50 Cent responded via BallerAlert.com to the above tweet that was reposted by a guy named Jay Bling below:

Now this has become extremely ugly!! You should NEVER bring innocent children into the mix! I'm with 50 on that one! You wanna come for me, then come for me, but don't bring my children into our shenanigans. #ImJustSaying

And about 9 hours ago, Floyd posted the following to his Twitter below:

I'm just hoping these rich, talented men can just keep it entertaining and leave the kids out of it! What are your thoughts?
