      Nick Cannon Calls Eminem "Elvis On Crack" & Says White Women Are Hip Hop's Biggest Consumers

      Nick Cannon Calls Eminem "Elvis On Crack" & Says White Women Are Hip Hop's Biggest Consumers

      LOS ANGELES, CA – Nick Cannon was a recent guest on VladTV where he was asked about Lord Jamar’s claim that nobody in the hood listened to Eminem. While he didn’t initially answer the question directly, he eventually got to his point.

      The Power 106 host started off by explaining how white women turn artists into superstars.

      “It’s capitalism at the end of the day,” he says in the clip. “Hip Hop music, the people that buy Hip Hop music are white people, specifically white girls. Like if you look at the actual demographics and how it all breaks down, well music in general. Even when you look at the streaming numbers.

      “Women, number one, are the biggest connoisseurs when it comes to consumption. When you break down demographically how it all works — from the fanbases to the girls who buy tickets and are screaming in the front rows, they create the stars.”

      He continues, “Us as guys, we sit back and we respect cats — we respect Nas, we respect Hov, we respect E-40 and [Ice] Cube and we can sit there and talk about them, but we ain’t gonna go out and fanboy for the muthafucka. Fanning for somebody is where the money is.”

       

      Finally, Cannon gets to Slim Shady and basically describes him as a marketing dream.

      “When you get a blonde-haired white boy that is actually dope, that’s like the second coming of Christ to the music industry,” he continues. “Because you gonna get all of the credibility, like dude you can’t deny that he’s dope. He’ll get in front of anybody, battle anybody. Then ,the fact it’s like, ‘Oh shit! I can sell and market this muthafucka like Pepsi? And he’s crazy and entertaining too? Oh, he’s a superstar. Oh he’s Elvis on crack.’

      However, he does admit he and his friends weren’t really into Eminem when he first emerged.

      “As much as I loved his approach, we wasn’t rocking with him like that,” he adds. “One thing I did know if you heard about an Eminem concert, it was gonna be flooded with women and those are the number one consumers of the product.”

      In May, Jamar told Vlad pointblank, “White people will crown Eminem king because he sold the most records out of all rappers. But, when we go into every day life of black people, people who are the originators of this shit, we don’t fucking listen to Eminem.

      “We don’t listen to Eminem. We don’t go to the gym and turn on Eminem. We don’t listen to him on the way to the club. We don’t play him in the club … now, corny places I can’t speak for that.”

      The Brand Nubian MC is one of several rappers Em dissed on Kamikaze, his tenth studio album. Check out Jamar’s original comments below.

      Kanye West's Neighbors Call 911 Over Dome Construction Noise

      Kanye West's Neighbors Call 911 Over Dome Construction Noise

      CALABASAS, CA – Police officers reportedly showed up at Kanye West’s Calabasas home on Sunday (August 18). According to TMZ, a few of his neighbors called 911 to complain about the construction noise coming from his property.

      The neighbors reportedly said construction crews were working on several dome structures for more than 12 hours on Saturday (August 17). While the the city allows construction from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. local time on Saturdays, it doesn’t allow Sunday construction.

      Evidently, ‘Ye didn’t get the memo.

      Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies responded at 7:30 p.m. that evening and found a construction crew working on one of the domes.

      Kanye created the prototypes to use as models for his vision of an “egalitarian community,” but his crews didn’t get proper permits. Consequently, he was cited for violating the building code.

      The G.O.O.D. Music boss was given the option to either get the proper permits or dismantle the four structures by September 15.

      He decided to rip them all down, which contributed to the extra noise. The crews stopped working once police told them to and the matter was resolved peacefully.

      Big Sean Blesses Detroit Boys & Girls Club With $100K Recording Studio

      DETROIT, MI – Big Sean and his Sean Anderson Foundation brought the second annual DONWeekend celebration, featuring a free block party and a mental health panel, to Detroit Saturday (August 17), and Sunday (August 18).

      In addition to gifting the children and people of his community with free carnival rides, and haircuts, the “Single Again” rapper also donated a $100,000 studio to the Dauch Boys & Girls Club.

      The Sean Anderson Foundation shared video highlights capturing the unveiling of the new content and production studio that was christened by the performance of students from the Midwest artist development company Star Factory.

      Sean reflected on the event with a series of photos in an Instagram post on Saturday (August 17).

      “Went and threw the most legendary Block Party! Free hair braiding n cuts, rides, food, etc. but what’s fire is we introduced kids/grown folk to self-healing, coding, music/engineering lighting programs, yoga, and more, right in my old neighborhood where they never get anything like this n need the inspiration n our guidance the most. All King’s n Queens” he wrote in the post caption.

      ” It’s our 2nd year doing it and I intend to do it every year til I die and even after that. ”

      Sean Don has been making a serious effort to put on for the D since publicly sharing his triumph over depression earlier this year.

      The 31-year-old rap star recently announced his plans to return to his roots on his forthcoming album Don Life, and linked with fellow hometown hero Kash Doll in the video for her track “Ready Set.”

       

       

       

       

       

       

      Nas, Mass Appeal & UMG Sign Rapper DIVINE As Part Of Mass Appeal India Launch

      Nas, Mass Appeal & UMG Sign Rapper DIVINE As Part Of Mass Appeal India Launch

      MUMBAI, INDIA – Mass Appeal is going international as they announce the signing of Indian rapper DIVINE. Nas’ imprint joined forces with Universal Music Group to form a new label, Mass Appeal India, concentrated on highlighting the country’s growing Hip Hop culture.

      DIVINE is one of the most-streamed artists in South Asia. He is known for “gully rap” — a sub-genre filled with raw and uncensored bars.

      “Hip Hop is the world’s most influential culture — it’s only right to share what we do at Mass Appeal on a global level,” Nas said via press release.

      “It’s an honour to be associated with a legend like Nas… For him to recognise not just me, but the whole Indian Hip Hop scene is a big win for Hip Hop, and for Hip Hop in India,” the newly Mass Appeal signee stated.

      The Mumbai native’s story of surviving the streets inspired the Zoya Akhtar-directed feature film Gully Boy which exposed him to an international audience including the Mass Appeal Founder.

      “I was first introduced to DIVINE’s music through the brilliant film Gully Boy. I’m proud to announce the launch of Mass Appeal India with DIVINE as the first artist on our roster,” Nas stated.
