2012 Coachella Music Festival - Day 3

A myriad of unreleased tracks were dumped onto the public following the 1996 death of Tupac Shakur in the form of additional albums and a series of mixtapes. But apparently there is still a number of Shakur recordings just waiting to see the light of day. That could happen soon. According to Billboard, a company called JAM Inc. has been working the rapper’s mother, Afeni Shakur, for the last two years and have access to everything in her vault of Tupac material. They plan to put out the material soon.

The company’s recent clients include the Michael Jackson estate, the Doors, Janis Joplin and Otis Redding. According to JAM Inc owner Jeff Jampol the Tupac releases don’t just pertain to new music. There are also “remixes, original demos, writings, scripts, plans, video treatments [and] poems.”

“Some of [the material] is in bits and pieces, some of it is complete; some of it is good, some of it needs work,” said Tom Whalley, who put together Shakur’s Interscope deal and is working with Jampol on putting out the unreleased material. “But I think the work that is left can be completed, and is worth his fans hearing.” There is also a biography in the plans.

Tupac recently made his way back on the scene when his voice was used for a PowerAde commercial featuring Derrick Rose. Kendrick Lamar also recently brought a buzz back to Pac’s name by using a 21-year-old interview with late MC on his recent album To Pimp A Butterfly.

The Grammy Museum currently has a Tupac exhibit on display titled “All Eyez on Me: The Writings of Tupac Shakur.” A biopic about the beloved MC will start filming this summer. It looks like there is much more to come.

Rapper Fabolous returns with the fourth installment of his popular #FridayNightFreestyles series. This time the veteran wordsmith spits some crazy bars over Mobb Deep’s classic song “Shook Ones Part II” from their 1995 album Infamous.

Along with DJ Clue dropping echoic ad-libs, Fabo raps rewindable punchlines and braggadocios lyrics.

“There’s a difference in getting money and got money / I’m just a winner with a pocket full of pot money / I ain’t judging baby, go on and get that thot money / Better save it for a rainy day when it’s not sunny,” he spits.

Near the end, the Brooklyn rhymer closes with a clever reference to Damon Dash’s infamous “I’m a boss” interview with Power 105.1’s Breakfast Club.

“I’ll give it to you n—-s on some AIM blast shit / Then give it to your sons on some Dame Dash s—, boy / You n—-s ain’t bosses anyway / A nine-to-five beat a 10-to-life any day / Get your money,” he raps.

Reactions to Fab’s freestyle were unanimous — he killed it. “Fabolous snapped on that “shook ones” freestyle. S— is flames!! Ma nig!!” he tweeted.

2-chainz-ceo-504x656

Sondra Rose reports,

Rapper 2 Chainz was named Chief Executive Officer of the struggling Atlanta Hawks franchise for a week.

This isn’t the first time that a major sports organization has utilized rappers to attract more urban sports fans into the arena.

2 Chainz’s official duties include hosting the March 27 “2 Chainz Night” festivities and designing colorful t-shirts that will serve as giveaways to urban fans who can name at least one of 2 Chainz’s rap songs.

2 Chainz, formerly of the rap duo Playaz Circle, will also distribute copies of his latest mixtape to his fans.

The Hawks dropped their last 3 games, including a 114-95 rout by the San Antonio Spurs on the Hawks’ home court on Sunday.

Vin-Diesel

Get ready to get a little teary-eyed: Vin Diesel announced on Today that he named his new baby daughter after his deceased Furious 7 co-star and pal Paul Walker, who passed away at 40 years old after a fatal car crash in late 2013.

Her name is Pauline.

“He was in the room,” Diesel told Natalie Morales. “There’s no other person that I was thinking about as I was cutting this umbilical cord. I just … knew he was there.”

After Walker died, Diesel expressed how much he valued his relationship to Walker. “I have a lot of friends and I have a lot of family, but my most prized relationship in some ways was always Paul,” he told Access Hollywood,” because we started as unknowns and we became iconic together over 15 years and dealt with the pressure of that and we were free people back in 2000 and then as the fame came, we both became more and more recluse.”

And now Walker’s memory can continue to live on through the Pauline.

kanye-west 2

Kanye West’s various accomplishments have been the talk of the town for the last few weeks. From his successful Adidas Yeezy Boost launch and first New York Fashion Week show to new music gigs, things have been in the green for ‘Ye. That is, until the Glastonbury Festival.

Just three days ago (Mar. 16), the London fest (which runs from June 24-28) excitedly announced that Kanye would be following in Jay Z’s footsteps as the big headliner.

But then, the big news was met with dissatisfaction instead of jubilation across the pond. A petition has been circulating around the ‘net asking Glastonbury to “cancel Kanye West’s headline slot and get a rock band.” So far, nearly 60,000 people have signed the petition.

Petition-starter Neil Lonsdale argues that having West as the headliner would be a “musical injustice” and “an insult to music fans all over the world.” Harsh, much?

So far, Glastonbury hasn’t responded to the petitioners.

Suge Knight‘s health is quickly deteriorating as he faces murder charges for a fatal hit-and-run. The former Death Row Records co-founder collapsed in a Los Angeles courtroom after a judge set his bail at $25 million during a hearing Friday afternoon (March 20).

In a video of the incident, provided by TMZ, court officials are shown coming to Knight’s aid, rubbing him on the back as he lays motionless in a chair. An ambulance reportedly arrived at the scene and transported him to a nearby hospital.

NBC Los Angeles reporter Patrick Healy was at the scene and shared news of Knight’s collapse through his Twitter and Instagram accounts. “#Suge Knight collapsed in court moments after hearing reconvened,” he wrote. “#Suge Knight attorney Matt Fletcher says Knight hit his head on chair when collapsed, went unconscious. Believes related to diabetes, lack of food.”

Fletcher states that his client wasn’t given his medication and was sweating profusely in court before he fell unconscious. “He was dripping sweat, like someone poured a bucket of water on him,” he told NBC. “He wiped the sweat off his head and said, ‘I haven’t had my medication.’”

During the hearing, which was initially postponed because Knight missed a transport bus from jail to court, the judge ruled that the rap mogul must prove that any money used to pay for bail came from legitimate sources.

Details regarding Suge Knight’s health are currently unavailable. This is not the first time Knight was rushed to the hospital following a court appearance. After his arraignment on murder and attempted murder charges in February, he had a panic attack, which caused him to make a visit to the hospital.

Knight is accused of murder and attempted murder after driving his pick up truck and striking Cle “Bone” Sloan and Terry Carter, who died. The tragic hit-and-run occurred in the parking lot of Tam’s Burgers on Jan. 29.
