A$AP Rocky Talks About Rihanna Photos

Rapper A$AP Rocky and pop superstar Rihanna were spotted in what appeared to be an intimate moment in New York City last week, but it was widely reported that they weren’t hooking up–they were only shooting a scene from a music video. Despite the presence of cameras and extras, Rocky recently denied that claim.

“Nah, we weren’t filming no video, we were just chillin,’” Rocky told MTV.

“People crazy,” he added. “You know people say a lot.”

Rocky was at the VMAs with his girlfriend, model Chanel Iman, so it doesn’t look like there’s any trouble. But these conflicting stories are very interesting.

Pusha T ft. Chris Brown – “Sweet Serenade” [LISTEN]

Pusha T drops “Sweet Serenade,” featuring Chris Brown, the latest single from his forthcoming My Name Is My Name album. 

That first verse finds Push dialing back his bars but he follows up with the rewind worthy material we’ve come to expect on verses two and three. Breezy holds things down with a smoothly delivered hook to complete this VA connection. As for the haunting beat with the shuffling drums, it was surprisingly produced by Swizz Beatz.

At this very moment, the G.O.O.D. Music rapper is conduction a Q&A via Twitter. When asked when we will finally see his new album’s track list, he answered/tweeted, “*Idk @kanyewest is handling the marketing, I just rap*”

My Name Is My Name is now due in stores October 8. Listen to “Sweet Serenade” below.

PUMA by Alexander McQueen 2013 Fall/Winter Joust III Mid “Sunflower”

While brands like Common Projects are busy designing minimalist footwear – stripping away excess panels, de-saturating colorways, and putting silhouettes on a diet, PUMA and Alexander McQueen have sat behind their presumably large drafting tables to devise an alternative for the footwear game. This has recently been unveiled in the newest release by the design duo, the Joust III Mid “Sunflower” for Fall/Winter 2013. The mid-top features beige giraffe contrasting brown snake prints around the leather upper, and accented with green suede. These features rest atop an opaque rubber sole, lending a bit of balance to the wildlife-inspired sneaker. Should this iteration of the Joust III tickle your fancy for Fall/Winter 2013, the shoe is available at Concepts now.

Lil’ Scrappy ARRESTED For PUTTIN’ DEM PAWS On Man Who DISRESPECTED Bambi At A Gas Station! + Tamar Braxton’s “Hot Sugar” Video SNEAK PEEK

 photo DSC_0242_zps964ae964.jpg

"LAHH ATL" star Lil’ Scrappy was arrested yesterday after brawling at a gas station with a man who disrespected his girlfriend Bambi.  Get the deets inside and watch Tamar Braxton’s "Hot Sugar" sneak peek.  

 

Rapper Lil’ Scrappy got "scrappy" with a man named Kenny Rogers (not the country singer) at a Georgia gas station yesterday after he disrespected his "BBW LA" girlfriend Bambi.  Sigh.

According to TMZ, police were called to the gas station at 2:33 AM after Lil’ Scrappy and Kenny got into a full-on altercation. The fight was broken up by an off-duty cop who just happened to be in the store at the same time. Both men were booked for disorderly conduct and Lil’ Scrappy was released a short time later.  As if Scrapy has room for stupid ish like this after JUST leaving jail recently.

When TMZ asked the rapper about the brawl, he said, "He was calling my girlfriend names and then put his hands on me … so I had to lay them paws on him."  This guy…

Scrappy’s lawyer Mawuli Mel Davis says surveillance tape will prove that Scrappy was acting in self-defense.

Let’s hope so. We wouldn’t want Scrappy to violate his parole and there’s no sense in going back to jail if Mona Scott Young has already shut down production for the summer….
 

 

Meanwhile…

September 2013 will be a huge month for Tamar Braxton as the new mommy drops her cd Love And War (September 3rd) and season 2 of "Tamar & Vince" kicks off on September 5th at 9/8c on WeTV.  And to ramp up some excitement about the new disc, Tamar unleased a sneak peek at the "Hot Sugar" video on Instagram.  Watch the clip above…..
 

Listen to the unofficial version of "Hot Sugar" here:

Chris Brown & Karrueche Unwind In Hawaii

Fans may have been wondering why R&B bad boy Chris Brown didn’t make an appearance at the MTV Video Music Awards this past weekend, but it looks like Breezy decided to spend some quality with his unofficial boo Karrueche Tran. The couple shared some photos of them hanging out in Hawaii around the same time the awards were taking place in Brooklyn, NY.

The couple shared pics of them on the beach and cruising around together.

Its interesting to note that Chris Brown and his ex-girlfriend Rihanna made headlines at last year’s awards show when they were spotted kissing in the audience. It was the first public display of affection between the couple in three years. They eventually got back together, only to broke up earlier this year.
