ashanti 980 e1343654625186 Hot Shots: Ashanti Shoots Video With...Fat Joe

The whereabouts of Ashanti‘s ‘Braveheart’ project may be an Unsolved Mystery, yet that hasn’t stopped the former INC maven from helping out Fat Joe on his comeback campaign.

A one-time chart-topper, the ‘Lean Back’ MC is trying to claw back relevancy with new cut ‘Pride & Joy’ – enlisting Ms. Douglas, Kanye West, Roscoe Dash, and more for its accompanying video.

Peep shots from the shoot below…

From The Vault: Fat Joe – ‘What’s Luv (ft. Ashanti)’

Having been rested on the bench for a while, this week marks the return of our From The Vault feature (with a bunch of other features set to make re-surface in the coming weeks). From The Vault sees us re-visit classic music videos, performances etc. Fat Joe’s 2002 smash collabo with Ashanti ‘What’s Luv?’ serves as this week’s clip. A bonafide hit all over the globe, who wasn’t bumping this one?

Ahh…the days when Murder Inc ruled the industry. While it was pretty much standard fare for Fat Joe to only have a hit every other album, Ashanti and her Murder Inc members – especially a certain Ja Rule continued to churn out hit after hit following this one. How the times have changed…

Fat Joe Takes Aim At 50 Cent

lil wayne makes it rain Fat Joe Takes Aim At 50 CentRapper Fat Joe has hit out at 50 Cent again, this time in a video where he vows to break 50′s “f**king new teeth”. Check out the report via Contact Music below:

In the footage, which is set to appear on music website All Access later this month (Mar08), the hip-hop star reiterates his desire to fight the In Da Club hitmaker – even though he is positive the G-Unit rapper would win. The 37-year-old – real name Joseph Cartagena – says, “He’s mad. We never fought a one-on-one. He should win. I’m being honest with you. “You can put your money on that guy. I just want to bust his f**king new teeth he got. Wide-open. “What he doesn’t understand is that Fat Joe is straight brave heart. I’m a warrior, win or lose… I’m a warrior.”

Ok then…lol. As much as I feel 50′s career is on a downward spiral, Fat Joe stopped being relevant way before. This just comes off as a desperate attempt to drum up interest in whatever, harsh as it sounds, destined-to-flop album he’s looking to release.

Any thoughts?

Pick Danity Kane’s Next Single

2c6fd62c4b5de5086f64f60bc9806ca5 Pick Danity Kanes Next SingleWith the new season of Making The Band set to kick off in a couple of weeks, Danity Kane are giving the public the opportunity to pick their new single. You can listen both tracks, ‘Damaged’ and ‘Pretty Boy’ below and follow the link to cast your vote. I, personally, went for the Danja produced ‘Pretty Boy’. The uptempo track does a good job of encapsulating the group’s Pop/R&B sound with Danja’s trademark Hip-House sound that seems to be all the rage these days. What’s more, the girl’s are doing different things with their voices – in terms of vocal arrangement, the hook etc. Great track. Not really feeling ‘Damaged’.

Which song did you choose? Hit or Miss?

Chrisette Michelle – ‘Be OK’ Video

The video for Chrisette Michelle’s latest single ‘Be OK’ premiered recently. I was kinda surprised to see this, as I was under the impression that Chrisette’s project had all but been abandoned. Considering ‘Be OK’ is one of the standout tracks from her ‘I Am’ album (IMO), I’m glad it got the single treatment. About the video, director Little X did a pretty good job; the vid is pretty simplistic, yet works all the same.

What do you think of the video?

Fat Joe – ‘I Won’t Tell’ (ft. J. Holiday) Video

The video for Fat Joe’s new single ‘I Won’t Tell’ made its debut yesterday on the rapper’s official MySpace page. Featuring 2007 breakout star J. Holiday, the song is the 2nd single to be lifted from Joe’s forthcoming album ‘The Elephant In The Room’ (due March 11th 2008). I’m feeling the song and the video is pretty good too. See if you can spot cameos by, among others, LeToya, Bow Wow, Christina Milian and Scott Storch. With his post-’Lean Back’ efforts pretty much tanking, I’m sure Joe is hoping this puts him back on the map.

What do you think of the song / video?

New Kelly Rowland – ‘Work’ (ft. Fat Joe)

f80db49eabab4f4d3ca5c286ed6224a6 New Kelly Rowland   Work (ft. Fat Joe)As Kelly Rowland preps the release of her sophomore CD ‘Ms Kelly’ (due July 3rd), a new track from the set has surfaced on a Tapemasters Inc mixtape. This version of ‘Work’ features rapper Fat Joe, although it’s unclear whether he will feature on the album version. The uptempo track, produced by Scott Storch, sees Kelly in unfamiliar territory – we haven’t heard anything from her like this before. It’s not what I initially expected and I’m liking some of the other tracks from the set better, but it’s still a good song nonetheless.

What do you think?
