Ever keen on keeping the masses abreast of fresh and/or often underrated talent, That Grape Juice presents ‘The Spill’ – a renewed look at not-so-new, yet active, acts.
Much like its ‘Freshly Squeezed’ sister segment, this revived assay aims to put the magnifying glass on talents who may not appeal to the buying public on a broad scale yet are still serving material that could easily spin side-by-side with some of today’s top hits.
Covering a kaleidoscope of genres, ‘The Spill’ is set to feature some names you probably know and love as well as some you’ll (soon) be glad to know. Click below to find out the spill on Shanell, Romeo Santos & Nicki Minaj, Ledisi, Estelle, and Raheem Devaughn…

Has Hip-Hop found a new smash hit in Nicki Minaj‘s ‘Lookin Ass‘?
Let her naysayers tell it, the answer to that question is no. Alas, they’d soon find their voices blotted out by the 17.6 million streams the cut garnered on VEVO in the last week, going on to outperform Mariah Carey‘s latest release ‘You’re Mine’…launched on the very same day!

Consider yourself a fan of Lil Kim, but detest Rap Queen Nicki Minaj?
You do? Well, today might be the day for you to reconsider your stance on the ‘Bought the Bar‘ ‘Barb‘, seeing as Kim seems to have developed quite the admiration for the star’s signature flow.
Confused? Join the club. For, in a brand new number named ‘Haterz‘, the Queen Bee takes a leaf (or two) from Minaj, and delivers a verse that goes a long way to expose the latter’s ironic influence on her Hip Hop sister.
Ready to give it a spin?

Has Nicki Minaj cut ties with manager Manny Halley?
Well, if a remark shared by the ‘I Ain’t Thru’ contributor during a recent interview with DJ Drama is anything to go by, she has.
For, during the pair’s 40 minute long conversation, the entertainer surprised any familiar with her management team when she referred to Hip Hop Since 1978‘s Gee Roberson as her manager.
This, set to cause quite the confusion for her fans, who have long known Halley to have held the coveted title, managing both she and ‘Woman to Woman‘ belle Keyshia Cole.

Trey Songz is barking back!
Indeed, while Nicki Minaj‘s budding hit ‘Lookin’ Ass’ only took aim at the ‘less fortunate’ members of the male race, it seems many have taken the cut as a slight to all men.
One of these, being ‘Trigga’ purveyor Trey Songz.
So, perhaps in a bid to boost his ‘male market share’, the performer has taken it upon himself to represent any who may have offended by Minaj’s lyrics and launched a response at the star.
The end result? ‘Look At Y’all.’
