In lieu of her recent breakup to longtime boyfriend Safaree, the timing is good for a proper leak of Nicki Minaj’s “Bed Of Lies.” First heard last week with Nicki’s appearance on the MTV EMAs,”Bed of Lies” features Skylar Grey on the hook and Minaj narrates the end of a broken relationship.



I know dis may ruffle some feathers…. But my people need to hear this…. BAD!!!!

After penning controversial editorial (since¬†redacted)¬†a few days ago on the Ferguson uprising, T.I. links up with Skylar Grey to clarify his views on what injustice is in America. Production-wise this is ready made for radio, but the content likely ensures it won’t gain that type of mainstream traction.

Slaughterhouse’s “Our House” is the backdrop for this new Miguel Cotto¬†vs. Austin Trout trailer courtesy of Showtime Sports. The two will duel¬†for Trout’s WBA light middleweight title on December 1 at Madison Square Garden.

“You should always criticize power even if you agree with it.”

Lupe Fiasco and Skylar Grey made a stop on Colbert’s Report to perform their hit “Word I Never Said.” Lupe sits down and also clarifies his views about President Obama, the War on Terror and Osama bin Laden.

A video can subtract or add to the value of a song. While I’m¬†not a fan of these Hip-Pop power ballads, this video for Dr. Dre’s “I Need a Doctor” definitely aids the song’s appeal. The best part is the beginning, which shows a montage of scenes from Dr. Dre’s career going all the way back to the World Class Wreckin’ Cru. Most sobering¬†are clips of the late Eazy-E¬†and Tupac¬†Shakur.¬†They serve to¬†remind you of the classic, genre-changing work Dre’s made in the past. You have songs like this and¬†“Under Pressure”¬†which make you think we’ll be getting Dr. Dre Presents Aftermath¬†2. Other leaked songs like “Topless” and “Shit Popped Off”¬†give hope Detox will come through. Time will tell.

Dr. Dre feat. Eminem & Skylar Grey “I Need a Doctor”

A Detox leak? Scrapped Recovery track? A joint that didn’t make Relapse?¬†For now it’s only speculation, but Rap Basement got a hold of this track new track featuring two Em verses and a finale from the good doctor. It has a nice concept of Eminem giving Dre a good tongue-lashing for staying away from the game for too long. Eminem pleads with his mentor to not only save him, but to save Hip-Hop as well. One major problem is Skylar Grey’s grating chorus, which comes off as a poor man’s¬†version of Rihanna’s work on “Love the Way You Lie.” The rock-infused beat is in line with the rapid-fire, emotional flow that Em has become fond of, but it still comes off as derivative.

I’m sure we’ll be hearing soon where this track¬†came from. Dr. Dre explained “Kush” as a leak they’ll go with since the public likes it. But, he also¬†made it clear the album sounded completely different from it. If¬†“I Need a Doctor”¬†turns out to be the “true sound” of Detox, we may be getting set up for a massive disappointment.
