Cannes, France was not only the place to be during its film festival. It is also a new place to make major moves… BOSS moves to be exact. While in France with the Baddest Boy, Diddy, Rick Ross decided to call up a camera crew and make an unofficial video for his hit single with Usher; Touch’N You. The video started off as a tour vlog and ended up looking like the real thing. Diddy shows up in full motivational speaker fashion and leaves us with some very encouraging thoughts and even Cassie is around. Watch above and be inspired.
Pharrell Williams has decided to bless us all with new music. Now, the really blessed fans were those who were lucky enough to be in Club Gotha in Cannes who actually heard the new releases live. Mac Miller and Swizz Beatz are each featured on one of the songs. While no song titles are out, you can watch the performance of the tracks by Pharrell in the video above.Read More

I think 2012 will be referred to as the year of the beefs…Iggy Azalea vs. Azealia Banks. Well, come to think of it, Azealia Banks vs. the entire world. Chris Brown vs. Meek Mill. Drake vs. Pusha T, which shifted into Lil Wayne vs. Pusha T. Now, Big Sean, Pusha T’s G.O.O.D. Music labelmate, has spoken out on the beef surrounding the G.O.O.D. Music vs. Young Money artists. In an interview with Casey from Philly’s Wired 96.5, he shared his opinions on the situation. To sum it all up, he doesn’t support it, and he actually shows them both a little love in the video. You can watch the entire interview above.
In other beefing news, the newest beefers on the block are Chris Brown and Brian McKnight. I know, odd enough without even taking time to explain, but here goes. So, we all heard the infamous “Show Me How Your P**** Works,” but that didn’t seem to satisfy Mr. McKnight’s nasty side. He just recently released a jingle for YouPorn; and it even features classy lyrics like “You wanna see some f–king anal, I can get you close enough to smell.” Oh, but wait, there’s more. Following the release of the jingle, fans went crazy on twitter and Brian responded with the following messages to them.
Since everyone’s so opinionated I’m taking suggestions on what I should do next I’m thinking rent a lambo and beat the shit outta my girl…That’s acceptable these days
Or maybe have sex with a 14 year old girl on film it, that’s acceptable these days
Or let the court system let me make 35 million before I do my 87 days in a private cell for domestic abuse that’s acceptable these days
It’s not shade I’m just reminding all of us what we accept on a daily basis

YMCMB and G.O.O.D. Music have really been at each other necks for the past week courtesy of Pusha T and Lil’ Wayne. But instead of a crew vs. crew battle, Wayne still enlists Big Sean for the first single of his 10th studio album I Am Not A Human Being II, with the hit “My Homies Still.” The song features two verses from each artist as they go back-and-forth on the Streetrunner and Sarom-produced track.
Also check out what Mack Maine had to say to MTV News about the collaboration and the beef between Pusha T and Lil Wayne in the video below.
“It’s not like that. I don’t see it like that. That’s not what we in the game for. If it ever came to that, God forbid, that’s a whole different story, but right now we’re just tryin’ to get paper, we’re just tryin’ to get money, man, and make good music. And that was a great song that was made before that situation happened, and I’m not ’bout to go into the studio and tell Wayne to take [Big Sean] off. Wayne not tryna take him off — he’s good peeps, he’s fam.”
