Eminem is going down....under and bringing Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole with for a stadium tour. The event is being billed as a "game-changing tour" and will take place in 2014.
Australian hip hop artist 360 will open up and New Zealand rapper David Dallas will play Auckland date.
Hip Hoop festivals have been struggling in Australia but we have a feeling this one is going to do quite well.
Online ticket sales start Oct. 31. Tickets for all dates are priced from about U.S. $95 to $290. There will be a pre-sale on October 24th.
After an outcry from Autism Awareness, J. Cole has apologized for his offensive lyric in Drake's "Jodeci Freestyle" song.
Cole made the announcement stating:
"he doesn't agree with the recent trend of pressure rappers have faced to apologize when they step over a perceived line, but in this case he feels he went too far in a verse he contributed to Drake's "Jodeci Freestyle."
"To the parents who are fighting through the frustrations that must come with raising a child with severe autism, finding strength and patience that they never knew they had; to the college student with Asperger's syndrome; to all those overcoming autism,"
"You deserve medals, not disrespect. I hope you accept my sincere apology."-DocFB
Diagnosis: Cole seems apologetic although at first it sounded like he doesn't like to apologize for lyrics like others have lately. I think Cole gets it and will write better lyrics going forward.
Here is "Party" the latest video by Beyonce and J. Cole. We are not sure if she has lifted anyone else's video yet however.
The make up and lipstick we can confirm was used by the girls in the 80's video "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go" by Wham!
I do like the line bout "Friday" and thanking Ice Cube for it. It has a cool beat that I may bob my head at a party but not sure I would be rolling round bumping it.
Check it out and let me know what you think.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Swagoo? Seriously?
Here is the cover and back of Jay-Z's New CD "The Blueprint 3" and check out the line up on the back cover:
Alicia Keys, Kanye West, Rihanna, Young Jeezy, J. Cole, Swizz Beatz, Drake, Kid Cudi, Pharrell, and Mr. Hudson.
Looks like Eminem may have company when it comes to the best selling CD of the year. The CD drops the week of September 11th.-Dr.FB
