Who Has the Filthiest 'Drunk in Love' Remix: Kanye or T.I.?

By Alicia Dennis on
(YouTube)Beyoncé treated fans to a very dirty Valentine's Day present last week with the surprise release of Kanye West's "Drunk in Love" remix. The new track takes the already raunchy song to new filthy heights with its wildly explicit rhymes, many of them seemingly inspired by his fiancée Kim Kardashian. Now T.I. has tried his hand at a remix, and though his version strays much further from the song's original formula (he's made it into a trap song) it's pretty similar, thematically. Lots...Read Full Story

Robin Thicke and Company File a Lawsuit Against Marvin Gaye's Family Over 'Blurred Lines'

By Alicia Dennis on
In his interview with High Snobiety last month, Robin Thicke essentially admitted that "Blurred Lines" would not exist were it not for a certain musical inspiration."We'd been recording for a couple days, we made a couple other songs and then I wanted to do something like Marvin Gaye's 'Got to Give It Up,' which is one of my favorite songs," Thicke explained. "Pharrell started messing with the drums, and an hour and half later the whole record was done. It was pretty dope."Naturally...Read Full Story

WATCH: Lil Wayne and T.I. Let It Burn in 'Wit Me'

By Lani Conway on
Health scare? What health scare? Lil Wayne comes out swinging (and speeding, and rocking out on a boat, and raising all hell at an underground Florida party) in the latest video for the T.I.-assisted single "Wit Me." In the video, the two rappers are on the run from the law and appear to not really give a damn about anything but their expensive cars, bikini-clad models, and coolness factor against a Miami city skyline. But hey, it's better than a hospital bed we guess.Read Full Story

T.I. Says Will Smith Tried to Pull Favors with President Obama to Get Him Out of Jail

By Alicia Dennis on
(Getty)When T.I. returned to prison in 2010 for violating the terms of his probation, he effectively threw a wrench in his career. Though the rapper found himself more famous than ever, it was for all the wrong reasons, as he recently explained to Billboard. "[People] probably know my situation more than they know my music. However, it also interrupted a lot of very lucrative and noteworthy opportunities. In my case, I lost as much as I gained, probably."But the Atlanta-based rapper had a...Read Full Story

T.I. Thinks Gays Are Too Sensitive, 'Not American'

By Alicia Dennis on
T.I. covers the December issue of Vibe magazine, which features a candid interview in which he voices cynicism about Bin Laden's death and asserts that being offended by homophobic jokes is anti-American.We're guessing T.I. didn't think that Tracy Morgan needed to apologize for saying he'd stab his son to death for using a "gay voice," given his thoughts on oversensitivity in the gay community: Man, I will say this, the funniest joke I ever heard Tracy say during a stand-up [routine] was, 'C...Read Full Story
