Pinned: Posts Resume As Normal Below

As such, we were elated to catch up with the crooner at the BET American Black Film Festival Honors in Los Angeles this week.

In attendance to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the movie ‘Love Jones’ (the soundtrack for which housed his song ‘Sumthin’ Sumthin’), the singer stopped to chat EXCLUSIVELY with That Grape Juice; dishing on the film and its significance and and his upcoming new album.

The latter will serve as the final instalment of his ‘BLACKsummer’snight’ trilogy.

Last year brought with it the second part, which arrived after a seven year hiatus.

This go round, Maxwell says he won’t be leaving his fans waiting as long. Watch his chat with TGJ’s Ques above to find out why.

Is Kmart dispensing some bargain brand shade? Let the Barbz tell it the answer is “yes.”

Shade or maybe coincidence, an unofficial account (@KmartFashions) took to Twitter today – amidst Nicki Minaj having the worst day ever after a recently released diss track from Remy Ma – to reveal the retail giants will be discontinuing sales of her collection of clothing due to “dramatically low sales.”

Announcing a slash of prices on the urban-inspired wear, moments after fans uncovered the account was potentially a hoax they were stunned to learn the retail giants confirmed the departure of Minaj’s threads from their roster via their official account.

Opting not to clarify the exact reason, tuck in below to see how Kmart shared the news with its followers:

Nicki Minaj & Trey Songz Beef Over Remy Ma Diss

Nicki Minaj wasn’t exactly lovin’ recent comments made by her ‘Touchin, Lovin’ co-star Trey Songz when he weighed in on the blistering beef between her and the rapstress Remy Ma.

As the internet is still catching its breath from Ma’s monstrous ‘Shether’ – a direct clap back at subliminal shots taken by Minaj – a line from the diss track alleges Songz engaged in a sexual encounter with the ‘Harajuku Barbie.’

Needless to say, the Young Money maven wasn’t pleased when the singer’s first response was not him denying the claim.  See the exchange inside:

Nicki Minaj Fans Take To Twitter To Mock Remy Ma Sales

Though sales of her latest LP ‘The Pinkprint’ have stalled around the 700,000 units point mark, Nicki Minaj continues to stand as one of the highest-selling artists to have debuted within the last decade…sans streams.

Indeed, with ticket, single, album and merchandising sales that see her dwarf Pop stars and Hip-Hop veterans alike, the rapper’s gargantuan brand has now become the standard for success for anyone hoping to assert themselves as a market leader in her field.

Alas, one of these artists is the gifted Remy Ma.

For, after releasing a number of cuts which gave many good reason to believe she had a bone to pick with Minaj, industry fanatics set their sights on the release of her new studio album to see just how loyal her fanbase was.
