I wonder if MTV will feature Ron Paul or the President heavily, hmmm?
On Tuesday, MTV will officially launch the Power of 12, our coverage of the 2012 election, beginning with the premiere of the documentary “Our Voice.” The doc follows filmmaker Andrew Jenks as he crosses the country — and hits the campaign trail — to speak with young voters about the issues that concern them most, and the Republican candidates that are vying for their support.
“Our Voice” will debut Tuesday at 4:54 p.m. ET/PT on MTV. And if you think you know everything about the concerns of the nation’s 45 million voters ages 18 to 29 (or the GOP hopefuls currently courting them), well, you’re in for an eye-opener. Because, as the 25-year-old behind MTV’s doc-style series “World of Jenks” told MTV News, he thought he did too. It was only when Jenks hit the road that he discovered how much he didn’t know.
TheWrap.com reports the network is planning to bring back the hip-hop show “Yo! MTV Raps!” for a one-off episode dubbed “Yo! MTV Raps Classic Cuts.”
The 30-minute retrospective is scheduled to air December 4th on MTV2 after the first-ever “Sucker Free Awards,” which start at 11:00 p.m. Eastern. It will feature former hosts Fab 5 Freddy, Ed Lover and Dr. Dre, as well as the artists behind three hip-hop classics — A Tribe Called Quest’s “Scenario,” Geto Boys’ “My Mind’s Playing Tricks on Me,” and Ice Cube’s “It Was a Good Day.”
Some of today’s most popular emcees will also be taking part, including Wiz Khalifa, DJ Khaled, Questlove, Mac Miller, Common, Fat Joe and more.
Ed Lover calls it a “great moment to be reconnected with ‘Yo!,’” which originally aired from 1988 to 1995. He adds that looking back at the classic songs originally featured on the show makes it “clear that hip-hop would inevitably transcend distance and generations.”
Although megastar rappers Lil Wayne and Jay-Z share the same surname, there have been rumblings over the years that the Carters have been in direct competition with each other. One of the latest flare-ups in the alleged feud happened with Watch The Throne’s first leak “H.A.M.” in where Jay-Z’s line “Really you got baby money” got the attention of both Wayne and YMCMB boss Birdman who responded to the verse via Twitter. Although Wayne initially brushed off the assumed jab, it appears that on a new song from Tha Carter IV may be reigniting a clash between the two rap titans.
On the track “It’s Good,” Wayne is assisted by Jadakiss and YM soldier Drake before launching a not so subtle shot in the direction of Jay-Z with the lines “talk about Baby money, I got your baby money/Kidnap your bi–h, get that how much you love your lady money” – with the lines appearing to be in direct response to Jigga’s verse. In the battle of rap superiority, both men have claimed their greatness and can certainly boast a litany of accomplishments between them. But even with their respective paths to fame, is this current dustup imagined or is the Lil Wayne and Jay-Z beef headed towards an epic head to head showdown?
Fans have been chiming in on the song shortly after it leaked to the Web with fans, especially on social networking site Twitter.
User @bigfella1906 said, “Lil wayne knows exactly wat he doin. Jay z know it too. #publicity”.
While fan @FerrariBacardi added, “Jay-Z vs. Lil Wayne is gonna be awesome. Even if its only sub dissing… We gotta catch all that.”
Fans have been going back and forth over the supposed dis; with some openly wondering what Jay will say in return while others are thinking the move is calculated. Whatever the case, this makes Lil Wayne’s upcoming August 29 release of Tha Carter IV even more intriguing as he continues to climb his way back to the top of the Hip Hop mountain. Stay tuned as this story will certainly develop.
Listen to “It’s Good” below:
"Beautiful Girls", 'MTV First', Candid, Injuries, Interview, Iyaz, Jet-Ski Accident, Miama Hospital, MTV, Near-Fatal, Nicki Minaj, Recovery, Sean Kingston, Soulja Boy, Sway Calloway, Travie McCoy, Truama
Sean Kingston will sit down with MTV News Sway Calloway on Tuesday, August 2, to set the record straight about his headline-making jet-ski accident.
During “MTV First: Sean Kingston,” the chart-topping artist will talk about his recovery from the near-fatal accident and his plans to get back in the recording studio.
The special is set to air at 7:57 p.m. ET on MTV and then continue for 30 minutes on MTV.com. Beginning Monday (August 1), fans can submit questions for Sean through MTV.com or via Twitter (using @MTVNews/ hashtag #AskSean).
Fans first learned of the accident that landed Kingston in a Miami hospital trauma ward during this past Memorial Day weekend. He suffered from a broken jaw, a fractured wrist and water in his lungs. Nearly four weeks after the accident, the “Beautiful Girls” singer tweeted a photo of himself from what looked like his hospital bed. He was released in late June.
Recently, Kingston has been slowly getting back to work, turning up on stage with Nicki Minaj on July 24, and shooting a music video with Iyaz, Travie McCoy and Soulja Boy earlier this month.
On “MTV First,” Sean will open up about the cause of the jet-ski accident and go into detail about the various medical procedures he underwent to treat his injuries. The singer will also speak candidly about how the accident helped him to focus on living a healthier lifestyle. And, of course, we’ll find out what’s up next for the star in his music career.
The day just got a lot hotter. Former G.O.O.D. Music frontman Consequence held his word and today launched a war against Kanye West and his army. In what’s expected to be the first of many attacks, on his first try Cons puts the spotlight directly on the labels latest signee, lyrical monster Pusha-T.
On the track titled “The Plagurist Society” Cons questions Pusha’s coke-dealing raps while reminding the VA hustler that he comes from the land of the elite weight movers, the notorious Supreme Team. Consequence saves the best for last towards the end of the record when the Queens native promises to take aim at West on the next go round.
“As a man, you can’t hang your fate on no other man, but when you think the man is your brother and you talk about every other single situation known to man, you would think it would dawn on somebody to say, ‘Hey, let me make sure this all right, let me make sure my guy is good.’ If I’m not your guy, that’s fine; let’s just have clarity on it.”
For the most part Kanye has remained silent adressing the litany of Consequence’s gripes with him. G.O.O.D. Music artist CyHi The Prynce recently spoke out following his former labelmates accusations directed at his boss.
“I can’t really speak on Consequence, ’cause I don’t know the agreements they had,” CyHi said on “RapFix Live.” “They had their relationship before I came along, so I don’t have no problem with him. That’s my guy.”
