In the clip, the judges praise contestant, Just Brittany, for her rendition of Rick Ross’ “Aston Martin Music” even though many thought another contestant, Kaiya, had the better version. Viewers thought Brittany ultimately won the show because of her complexion and looks.

The-Dream was prompted to defend himself after the clip made its rounds.

“I’m completely surprised by even the smallest amount of people that would ever test my Blackness and my love for my people and my culture in everyshade esp. the darkest of u,” he wrote. “I’m not overly surprised. But as much as I’ve done to move women forward through songs and always Being the one that make sure shit looks a certain way.”

Ashanti Explains Why There Are Two Versions of Fabolous’ ‘I’m So Into You’

big ralph | January 27, 2021

Fabolous 2003 hit single, “So Into You” has two different versions with the sampled artist, Tamia, and another one with Ashanti.

Fab and Tamia disagree on the origin of the collaboration, but Ashanti shared her version of the story during an appearance on Hot 97.

The singer said she was aware that her part was for Tamia, but she recorded it as per Fabolous’ request but was ultimately replaced with Tamia.

“Fab and them wanted me to shoot the video, and I think Irv [Gotti] … he didn’t want me to shoot the video,” Ashanti explained (13:12). “I guess he felt like I was being oversaturated. So for them, business-wise, it’s like, ‘Why would we have the single out with her and then not be able to shoot the video?’ And then, I think that’s when they got Tamia to shoot the video and then do the song. I really believe that is what happened. ‘Cause there’s a bunch of different stories, but I feel like that’s what I was told.”

Ashanti also touched on her Verzuz battle, where she waited on the..

big ralph | January 27, 2021

French Montana says his link up with Jay-Z is more than likely on the way. Back in November 2020, the New York rapper dropped the 5th installment of his reoccurring mixtape, CB5 (Coke Boys 5). The project featured cameos from the late Pop Smoke & Chinx. French also tapped Lil Durk, Jack Harlow, Max B, Benny The Butcher, NBA Youngboy & more. With the momentum carrying over from the project into the New Year, Montana looks to capitalize.

During the early stages of Verzuz, both artists and fans alike began to pit names together to anticipate potential Verzuz matchups. In French’s case, during an interview, he stated that he may “outshine” TDE rapper Kendrick Lamar if the two were headlining a festival.

He also tweeted that he and K-Dot would go neck and neck if “anthems” or “hit for hit” is the criteria. His statement was met with much ridicule from Twitter and even garnered some commentary from YSL CEO, Young Thug. French later tweeted in clarification that his statement derived from..
