Lil Kim Destroys K. Michelle

Rap icon Lil Kim went from 0-100 on R&B singer and reality star K. Michelle yesterday. Before we get to the roasting I should mention that K. Michelle’s current album, Anybody Wanna Buy a Heart? (Atlantic Records), is on pace to top 100,000 in record sales next week. That puts her in very rare company as only 2 other urban artists — and no other female R&B singer — sold more than 100K records in all of 2014!

Furthermore, I listened to K. Michelle’s album yesterday and it’s actually pretty good. So put aside your personal opinion of her and go support our urban artists by copping the CD!

Now on to the roasting!

Mariah Carey Cuts Ties With Manager Jermaine Dupri

Mariah Carey and Jermaine Dupri part ways

Songbird Mariah Carey seems to be blaming her manager and producer Jermaine Dupri for the poor performance of her current album.

Mariah’s unfortunately named album, Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse, sold a measly 83,000 total albums in the US. That wasn’t good enough for the 45-year-old Diva who has 17 top ten albums to her credit.
