Rapsody On Female Rappers Selling Sex Before Music

[anvplayer video=”4242078″]

One of the best things about SXSW is the all the great spots to eat in Austin. One of my go-to spots is called Gourdoughs, it’s basically burgers with donut buns. It’s completely amazing.

So this year I decided to bring my friend, Rapsody here to enjoy some food and talk about her SXSW experience. This was her first time in Austin in five years. She told us “I’m still having flashbacks from five years ago.”

Since her last time at SXSW, she’s been working on new music, building her brand with straight bars and even got featured on a track with Kendrick Lamar. With 9th Wonder and Roc Nation behind her, she was ready to take the festival and this Big Baller Burger by storm. Check out our discussion above!

Is Beyonce About To Dump Jay-Z As Her Manager?

Jay-Z and BeyonceWord on the street is that Beyonce is not happy with her husband Jay-Z and his RocNation as her managers and her team called an “emergency meeting” with Bey to make things right.

Sources are saying that the meeting was called because of the lukewarm responses Beyonce’s new album received during a private screening yesterday.

One snitch said: “We had a screening of [Beyonce’s new album, entitled] Four. A number of people told [Beyonce’s label] privately that they were disappointed with the work.”

Among the topics discussed were: re-recording her ENTIRE album (to include more R&B ballads) and dropping Jay Z and RocNation as her managers. The insider explained, “A lot of people blame this album on [Jay Z and RocNation]. They think it’s time she went with one of the major [Management companies in Los Angeles], at least as far as her music career.”

I’m thinking it’s not always a good thing to have your husband as your manager, sometimes you really have to separate the two!
