Standard

This is an interesting collection of names together, but they do go very well together!

Snoop and his upcoming album “Doggumentary” enlisted the help of John Legend and Mr West for the track “Eyez Closed” that leaked a couple of months back. Without even hearing Kanye the beat invites us into his presence and the track ain’t half bad…

Lauryn Hill is the star @ Rock The Bells 7th Annual HipHop Festival! (Pics and Video)

Standard

The 7th Annual Rock The Bells Concert took place yesterday at San Bernadino @ The Nos Center New York. The whole of NY came out to check out headline act Lauryn Hill with other mega acts such as Wu Tang, Snoop Dogg, A Tribe Called Quest and much more.

With Ms Lauryn Hill

And it wasn’t just her performance that got everyone hyped up. Watching from backstage were some of 2010 urban A-list celebrities (watch the clip and check out the guests) who watched her bring back old-time classic “Fu Gee La” as well as bringing them out!

I am so glad Lauryn is back, as a little while ago we bought you a track from the legend called “Repercussions”. Even though it was not completed just having her back on the radio takes us all back to when her album never came out of the CD player, but alas I bring you more good news!!

Dana Rivera of Boywonder Entertainment, producer and co-writer of Lauryn Hill’s newly released track “Repercussions,” tells TheYBF.com that “Repercussions” was just a track the dup started working on. But thanks to its leak on to the net and airwaves, and despite it being unfinished, it is burning up the R&B charts.

Reports previously speculated that the mysteriously released track was actually a demo for Lauryn’s Miseducation of Lauryn Hill album. But Lauryn’s high school friend Dana tells us that’s not the case.

No, this is not an out take from the Miseducation album, it is a “work in progress,” Dana tells TheYBF.com today. He went on to explain to us, “Lauryn’s ability to move from smooth vocals to rippin’ a rap verse is necessary to make “Repercussions” complete.”

While Dana confirms that Lauryn has indeed been back in the studio, he can’t yet confirm that she is working on a new full album. Neither Lauryn, nor her label Sony, have yet to confirm anything yet as well.

Check out Lauryn in full swing and more of the fun below in pics… enjoy xx

John Legend ft The Roots, Melanie Fiona & Common “Wake Up Everybody” (New Music 2010)

Standard

So what happens when four amazing artists are put into a booth to do a track for a old-school cover album?

Magic is created!

John Legend alongside The Roots formed the idea of collaborating on a whole album together in 2008, and two years later they have decided to bring it to life. This project is inspired by old-school soul of the late 60s and 70s and will feature covers from prominent artists of that time like Marvin Gaye, Donny Hathaway and Teddy Pendergrass.

How exciting!

“Wake Up Everybody” is the 1st single of the album and features Melanie Fiona & Common on the track, which is due for release September 21st 2010 entitled Wake Up!

Let me know your comments!
