‘Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe’ has provided Kendrick Lamar with a lot of success in the past year. That track and his critically acclaimed 2012 album “good kid, m.A.A.d city” ensured the 25 year old’s number one spot on MTV’s HottestMC’s list.
Maybe that’s why Jay-Z has decided to jump on the track. Rap’s hottest new star meets rap’s resident legend has hit written all over it. Unfortunately we’ve only been given a preview of the track so we’ll have to wait for the whole thing.

Nicki spazzed on Da Brat because a blog falsely reported that Da Brat had tweeted something in defense of Mariah Carey. We all have heard about the strong friendship between Da Brat and Mariah Carey, so the tweet seemed plausible.
The fake tweet, allegedly from Da Brat, reads as follows:
“I ALREADY HAD TO BUST ONE B!TCH OVER THE HEAD WITH A BOTTLE, AND I WILL DO IT AGAIN. DON’T F@CK WITH MY PEOPLES CAUSE I WILL F@CK WITH U EVEN HARDER. IT’S NOT A GAME AND I’M NOT A JOKE. B!TCHES GOT IT TWISTED AND I’M A UNTWIST SOME SH!T” Continue reading
