Watch: That Grape Juice Interviews A$AP Rocky

*Pinned: Posts Resume As Normal Below*

Few artists can weather the storm of an album leak ONE MONTH ahead of its release date, speak less debut at #1 with the same project. However, such was the fortune of rapper A$AP Rocky, who we caught up with in London over the weekend.

The ‘F**king Problems’ MC was in town to promote his scorching debut ‘Long.Live.A$AP’, which topped the Billboard 200 this week and charted at #7 on the Official UK Album Chart on Sunday.

Watch above as the 24 year old dishes on his journey to the “major leagues”, homophobia in Hip-Hop, his album, and much more.

 ‘Long.Live.A$AP’ is available on iTunes now! {US} {UK}

Exclusive Video: Dorinda Clark Cole Talks New “Clark Sisters” Album?

While some of the music world awaits the reunion of R&B girl group Destiny’s Child at this year’s Superbowl,  there has been chatter about another all female supergroup reuniting – The Clark Sisters.

Indeed, the legendary foursome that lent such hits as “Blessed & Highly Favored” and “You Brought the Sunshine” promised their 2007 compilation ‘Live: One Last Time’ would be just that – their last.

However, chatting with the group’s jazziest member Dorinda Clark Cole (“I’m Still Here”, “Take It Back”) at last night’s 2013 Stellar Awards, That Grape Juice uncovered news that a united return featuring sisters Karen Clark Sheard, Twinkie Clark, and Jackie may be on the horizon.

Also dishing on her ‘Female Vocalist of the Year’ nomination for her latest effort ‘I Survived’ (subsequently awarded to niece Kierra Sheard), press PLAY above to get the scoop.

That Grape Juice Interviews Dorinda Clark Cole

Say hello to Dr. Dorinda Clark Cole, undoubtedly the hardest working woman in the gospel music industry.

Affectionately known as the ‘Rose of Gospel’ – a fitting title for the beauty who, under the guidance of mother Dr. Mattie Moss Clark, sprouted from gospel supergroup The Clark Sisters to now blossom in her own solo career as a frontrunner of the genre.  And, with a career spanning four decades, the songstress appears to show no signs of stopping soon.

As Grammy, Stellar, and a host of other awards decorate her shelves, the ‘I’m Still Here’ songstress tells us she still has much uncharted territory to conquer.  Sitting down exclusively with That Grape Juice, Cole chats about her dynamic plans for the near future as well her hit television and radio shows, ‘I Survived’ album, and more.

Love Fantasia? Love Jazmine Sullivan?  Meet the legend those singers and many like them cite as an inspiration.  As always, this is a must read:

That Grape Juice Interviews Gospel Hitmaker Israel Houghton

Over the past two decades Gospel hitmaker Israel Houghton has seen his name blasted atop Billboard’s Gospel Charts for hits like ‘Again I Say Rejoice’, ‘Friend of God’, and the most recent #1 hit ‘It’s Not Over (When God Is In It)’.

In such time, the ‘New Breed’ captain has not only racked up 4 Grammy awards and a host of other accolades, but has become one of the genre’s frontrunners – with 2012 seeing him join fellow Gospel gents Kirk Franklin, Donnie McClurkin, and Marvin Sapp for the hotly-selling ‘King’s Men’ national tour.

But, despite his successes, the ‘Jesus At the Center’ maestro maintains that his family remains the center of his devotion as he still juggles the demands of being the worship leader for mega-pastor Joel Osteen‘s Lakewood Church (Houston, TX) with touring and recording.

Click below to read our candid interview with Houghton as he discusses this topic and many more, exclusively with That Grape Juice:
