Prince once again rocked Madison Square Garden last night with the fourth of his Welcome 2 America shows. These exclusive photos landed in our inbox just now - thanks to the purple one for sharing them. Hot, no?

Last night's openers were ol' skool band Mint Condition and the funkified Janelle Monae (who also joined Prince on stage for "If I Was Your Girlfriend" during his set). Rolling Stone had this to say about Prince's high-energy, hit-packed, sold-out show: "Such is the power of Prince: With songs as funky and fresh as that, the party doesn't ever stop." (full RS review here).

Were you at the show? Was it as funky as these pics??? -Dr.FB

Another Eminem Leak Featuring Dr. Dre & Nas. Listen Now!~

2 Eminem leaks in one day? I could get used to this!  This one  is called "Topless" and features Eminem with Dr. Dre and Nas.

It is not the full version and is most likely the basic track but it is sheer hotness and I cannot wait for the full complete version.

Earlier today "Syllables" leaked, a track featuring Eminem, Jay-Z, 50 Cent, and Dr. Dre recorded in 2007.  No record date is known now but we hope to know soon.

For now, enjoy "Topless" from Eminem, Dr. Dre, and Nas and let us know what you think.-Dr.FB


Listen Now! New Eminem Featuring Jay-Z, 50 Cent, Dr. Dre, Cashis & Stat Surfaces

Schweet!  Why am I saying that?  A track featuring Eminem, Jay-Z, 50 Cent, Dr. Dre, and others came out today.  It is called "Syllables" and gives you something to think about even if it is not the greatest track ever made.

The track was recorded in 2007 but is just surfacing now..... It is crazy when you think about the names involved in this project.

"It is not about lyrics anymore.  It's about a hot beat and a catchy hook."

Talking about how the industry is dumbing down it's lyrics to the public.  Hmm.  Interesting.

So check out "Syllables" and let me know what you think.-Dr.FB
