Hot Shot: Shakira Launches Million Dollar School Project

Just as renowned for her philanthropy as she is for her well flavored music, Shakira continues in her efforts to aid her homeland, Colombia.

For on Thursday, the star took to the Afro-Colombian district of Ciudad Bicentenario to help launch a $36 million education initiative for the nation’s children, as part of a series of events linked to the weekend Summit of the Americas.

This comes 15 years after the Roc Nation signee launched the Pies Descaloz Foundation,to help poor and poverty stricken children by way of education and healthy meals.

To date, the foundation has opened 5 schools in Columbia reaching over 1000 kids and recently joined forces with FC Barcelona to add sports to the services it already provides.

From The Vault: Missy Elliott – ‘Gossip Folks’

Here at That Grape Juice HQ, we love us some Missy Elliott! What’s not to hail about her? Killer flow, stellar songs, outstanding videos, impeccable stage shows and ever-enduring humility.

From The Vault this week journeys back to the year 2002 when Elliott released ‘Gossip Folks’ as the second offering from her fourth album ‘Under Construction’.

‘Gossip’, an open-letter to critics and bandwagon “fans”, was produced by partner-in-crime Timbaland and featured Hip-Hop heavyweight Ludacris. It was yet another hit for the rapper-singer-producer-songwriter, peaking inside the Top 10s of the US and UK charts. The song’s unusual chorus is built around a sample of ‘Double Dutch Bus’ by Frankie Smith.

As is always the case with Elliott, the accompanying visual is quite the event. Boasting CGI aplenty and appearances from the likes of friend Eve and then-protégé Tweet, the video was also notable for its tribute to late artists and friends Jam Master Jay, Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes and of course Aaliyah.

*************

With breakthrough act Azealia Banks confirming that she and Missy are to log in studio time, and with Timbo claiming her highly delayed album ‘Block Party’ is finally poised for released in June, the triple-threat seems on the right path to continue her reign as the one-and-only Queen of Hip-Hop. And we, for one, can’t wait!

Missy’s career is one to be both celebrated and adhered to as the definitive rule-book for Hip-Hop hopefuls. For her status is one achieved on the merit of skill and ever-flowing creativity; not scandal or gimmicks.

Hot Topic: What Do You Think Of Rita Ora?

It’s safe to say Rita Ora has finally landed.

After spending the last four or so years in Pop’s stockroom, this year saw the star make an explosive debut, scoring a #1 single and launching the radio hits ‘RIP’ and ‘How We Do(Party)‘.

Arriving in a Beyonce/Rihanna world, her hype- when not being pushed by her own team- has been heightened by the all powerful ‘stans‘, filling with That Grape Juice comment sections with Ora-centric debate.

This, upping her stock in the blogosphere in ways her label couldn’t have imagined.

So with her debut album set to drop this year, we ask:

What do you think of Rita Ora?
