DJ Khaled Has a Song Ready for Eminem

DJ Khaled and Eminem
DJ Khaled assembled an all-star cast for his latest album We the Best Forever, but there’s still one collaboration that has escaped him. The Miami DJ has his sights set on a record with Eminem.

“I wanted Eminem,” Khaled told Hot 97’s Angie Martinez of his desire to work with the in-demand MC. “I really want to make it happen, I think it’s gon’ happen.”
Despite his ability to get everyone from Mary J. Blige to Cee Lo Green on his records, the Cash Money signee has never approached Eminem’s camp about a collaboration. “I never really sat down and talked to him,” he added. “I’m a fan of him and I’m cool with him, but he doesn’t know me like that. I really don’t know what route to get him.”
Khaled wants the track to come together organically. “I don’t just ask people to get on records. I want people to want to do the records and know I’m gonna make a hit record ’cause that’s what I do. I’ve worked with Jay-Z before, I’ve worked with Kanye before, so I wanted to reach out to Eminem.”
When Em is ready, Khaled already has the song picked out. “I actually have a track waiting,” he added. “Ya’ll A&R that.”
Next up, he plans to shoot a video for his album’s R&B offering, “Legendary” featuring Chris Brown, Keyshia Cole, and Ne-Yo.

Chris Brown -- Neighbors Say He's a Nightmare

Chris Brown is at war with his fellow West Hollywood condo owners, who claim the rapper is the neighbor from hell, parking in handicapped spaces, blasting music, and racing dogs in hallways.  

TMZ has obtained several pics of Brown's super-expensive rides ... clearly parked in spaces reserved for disabled drivers.  We're told Chris has been ticketed numerous times by the city.

The building manager tells us everyone is fed up and they're now planning on towing Chris' cars if he dares park there again. 

Chris' lawyer, Mark Geragos, tells TMZ, Chris is the one who's getting screwed.  Geragos says, the deed clearly shows the two spaces belong to Chris, but the developer never disclosed the spots were reserved for the handicapped.  Geragos says Chris is in litigation with the building over the spaces and plans to fight the tickets as well.  But the building manager says Chris is parking in other handicapped spots as well.

But the gripes go beyond parking spaces.  Chris' fellow condo-owners tell TMZ ... the dude is utterly disrespectful, blasting loud music and partying day and night ... even racing dogs down the hallways at all hours.

And that's not all.  We're told police showed up this week, after someone vandalized the elevator by carving "C.B." on the elevator door.

Mind you ... Chris has only lived in the building a few months.

It's condo-mania!

Beyonce's Producer Disses Kelly Rowland's "Motivation" Single

Beyonce's Producer Disses Kelly Rowland
Despite having the #1 urban song in the country, some people (Beyonce stans included), won't let Kelly Rowland be great.
The latest example comes from Beyonce's producer, Jeff Bhasker, who's credit with producing three songs on Beyonce's new album 4.
The producer hit Twitter to say this:
Kelly Rowland fans spent the next few hours criticizing Bhasker for his comments, until he responded with the following tweet hours later:
Bhasker has received production credits for a number of songs, including Kanye West's “Runaway,” Alicia Keys' "Try Sleeping with a Broken Heart" and "Wait Til You See My Smile."
Bhasker could say what he wants, but "Motivation" is still the #1 Hip-Hop/R&B song on Billboard.
And if he keeps talking slick about Beyonce's girl, he might get demoted to producing songs for Solange Knowles.

Florida Teen Blames Rap Music And Ecstasy For Killing Parents And Throwing Party [Video]

Teen Who Killed Parents With Hammer Then Threw Party Blames Rap Music
Tyler Hadley knew that murdering his parents was going to result in a prison sentence that he planned to skip.
The 17-year-old's best friend, Michael Mandell claims Hadley confessed to the crimes and told him he was possessed by the devil and had taken three ecstasy tablets and wanted to commit suicide if he was caught.
He also allegedly told his pal he did it because of a combination of rap music, constant fights with his parents and the fact they had financial problems.

Mandell stated, "He asked me to stay there until after everyone left to see them and I didn't want to. I went in there and checked for myself. I opened the door. I saw bloody sheets piled everywhere. I saw broken pictures with blood on them and I looked down and I saw his dad's leg there."
Authorities believe the Hadleys were not killed where they were found and another motive was that he was not allowed to throw a party.
Maybe he figured he could relieve them of their money issues and resolve beef with them by ending their lives. No specific rap song was cited as the cause of the killing but look at the footage below.

Andre 3000 Not Playing Jimi Hendrix, Biopic Shot Down By Estate [Photos]

Jimi Hendrix's Estate Quashes Biopic Rumours
Andre 3000's dream of playing Jimi Hendrix in a biopic may not come to life.
Despite rumors, Jimi Hendrix's estate has put an end to the speculation of a Jimi Hendrix movie starring Andre 3000.
Reports state that:
The estate of Jimi Hendrix has responded to rumours of a biopic being completed but confirm they are working on releasing more documentary footage.
Experience Hendrix, the group that administers the posthumous affairs of guitar icon Jimi Hendrix, have sent out a press release responding to media reports that a feature-length biopic of the man is nearing production.
Experience Hendrix say they have “made it known many times in the past that no such film, were it to include original music or copyrights created by Jimi Hendrix, can be undertaken without its full participation.”
To put the statement into Hip-Hop terms, a Jimi Hendrix biopic ain't going down...unless Jimi Hendrix's estate says so.
Sorry, Three Stacks...but you could always give the people what they want and make a solo album.

Check out some of Andre's most eclectic looks below.
Would he have done Jimi Hendrix justice?

T-Pain Ditches Auto-Tune For T-Pain Effect On New Album

T-Pain Replaces Auto Tune on RevolveR Album
T-Pain announced the death of auto-tune last month, now the Southern crooner is saying he will replace his signature sound with “The T-Pain Effect.”
“You can't stick with one thing forever," said T-Pain in a recent interview with
"After you figure out how stuff works, you've got to start making your own. When everybody talks about (Auto-Tune), they pretty much say T-Pain. So what simpler thing to do? It's supply and demand. You want the T-Pain sound? I'm gonna give you the T-Pain effect."
Details of the The T-Pain Effect were disclosed in June and involve a partnership with the Boston-based audio technology company iZotope.
The T-Pain Effect which features 50 beats as well as recording and distribution software can purchase it through iZotope for $99. Look for Pain's new sound on his upcoming album, RevolveR.
"There's so much different stuff on [RevolveR],” said T-Pain. “I almost confused myself on what I wanted to do because I've gotten such a completely different audience from...the Taylor Swift stuff and the Bud Light commercial and Toshiba...I've just gotten so many other people and so many different audiences. I had to make different kinds of music for everybody but still keep it classic T-Pain at the same time. That got kind of confusing and hard, but it all worked out."
Pain's fourth album RevolveR is scheduled for release later this year.
