With another episode of Love & Hip-Hop in the can, Consequence delivers the second installment of his ConsTV Tuesdays series. This time fans receive a soulful gem titled “Scared of Commitment,” co-starring Sacramento MC Chuuwee and Killer Mike. Listeners get just what the title implies here, as the three lyricists explain why they aren’t quite ready to settle down with a that special someone.
At least the track’s jazzy horn loop softens the blow for Cons and company to break the bad news to their respective belles. With that said, pay homage to The Produce Section for their efforts on the beat. According to the rapper’s Soundcloud account, “the song title plays right into Cons & Jen’s storyline perfectly.” Not sure what that means, though.
Avid followers of Love & Hip-Hop will also recall that this is the track the Queens lyricist was going to record with Olivia and Erica Mena. Upon hearing the final product, it’s a blessing that didn’t happen.
If you didn’t know, Consequence will premier a new track every Tuesday following the airing VH1′s Love & Hip Hop episodes on Monday nights. Click here for the inaugural tune from ConsTV Tuesdays.
Hear “Scared of Commitment” below.

The last few years have been non-stop for Nicki Minaj, yet even as her star continues to rise, she’s fearful of fame.
In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Minaj opened up about joining American Idol, and potentially being too accessible to the public.
“Sometimes you are afraid of being too famous because it’s almost, like, is that even cool? Being that accessible, someone you see on TV every week? I never pictured myself as that type of person. I’m still surprised that I decided to do it.”
In choosing to become a judge on the show, the Young Money star consulted with her inner circle. “I had a lot of talks with people— my family, my best friends, my label, Lil Wayne, management and then the producers.”
Much has been made about the 30-year-old’s feud with fellow judge Mariah Carey, and as the Idol premiere date draws near fans will get a chance to see how the two communicate with one another. Since the firestorm behind their disagreement died down, Minaj has somewhat changed her tune, and doesn’t rule out a potential second collaboration with Carey. “If she’ll have me, I’ll be here waiting,” she told Ryan Seacrest, last November.
Carey’s husband, Nick Cannon, has also said that the two should jump on another record together (their previous collaboration was for Carey’s “Up Out My Face” in 2010), but as of now there are no plans to get in the studio.
In the meantime, fans can see Carey and Minaj when American Idol premieres Jan. 16 on Fox.
Django Unchained star Jamie Foxx appeared on "Oprah’s Next Chapter" last night where he talk about getting his heartbroken and why he isn’t ready for marriage. Watch the episode inside…
On the heels of a great hosting gig on "SNL," Oscar-winning actor Jamie Foxx appeared on "Oprah’s Next Chapter" last night where he talked about his upbringing in Terrell, Texas, being trained in classical piano and falling in love with comedy.
When it came to the subject of his romantic life, the funnyman–who chatted it up at NYC’s Soho house–revealed he isn’t ready for marriage or commitment. It seems that he shies away from both because of an earlier experience. He said, ‘You get your heart broken one good time and, especially for a man, it’s catastrophic.’
Part two of Jamie’s interview airs on December 23 at 9/8pmCST

”He Was Trying To Find Out How Did I Leave”
In an interview with Complex, former Cash Money Records star Juvenile spoke at-length about his departure from Cash Money in the early 2000s. According to Juvie, labelmate Lil Wayne was also considering a departure from the label he made famous.
“When Wayne was trying to leave Cash Money [in the mid 2000s], same thing. He was trying to find out how did I leave, what did I do, he wanted to see my paperwork,” Juvenile revealed. “I was like ‘You can see it, but you’re gonna have to pay me for it now because now I know you ain’t with me. You’re own your own because I’m definitely on my own. If you want the paperwork and help from my end, I need to be compensated for it.’ [He never paid for it]. … I thought he was scared [that's why he stayed]. That’s how I took it. I was like, ‘You don’t have to be scared.’ I’m really from the projects. No disrespect to them, but I’m 10 times more street than they are. They would never go to some of the places I’d go, they’d never turn some of the corners I turned because they’re not like that. It’s two different ballgames.”
“So I’m like, ‘Don’t let them n***as intimidate you. Don’t let that looking hard sh*t intimidate you because n***a I’m really with it. If you wanna leave, leave. You’re with me now, not them.’ One thing led to another and he signed back, but I took it as he was scared,” Juvenile continued. “Wayne is doing good right now, but if you go off of capital and off of who made the most money, he still ain’t top my numbers yet off one album. He’s still doing good, but he still never topped my numbers. If you go off of who could benefit most at the end of the day, in my book I feel like I’ve lost everything. They won. These n*ggas ate off the house I built.”
50 Cent shook up the boxing world last week when he announced that he was going into business with Floyd Mayweather’s rival, Manny Pacquiao. Floyd Mayweather and 50 Cent also reportedly got into a rift, and although Floyd refuses to talk down on Curtis, this has done nothing but reignite the flame of a possible Pacquiao-Mayweather bout.
While on ESPN’s First Take yesterday, Pacquiao was on the show with Juan Manuel Marquez to promote their [fourth] fight against each other. Around the 6:10-min mark, perennial button pusher, Skip Bayless, gets Manny to say in a playful manner that Floyd is scared to fight him. Hit the jump to check it out.

”Just the Culture That He Represents…”
Lupe Fiasco, in an interview with Baltimoreâs 92Q Jams, spoke about fellow Chicagoan Chief Keef and what the young Windy City rhymer represents. Fiasco says that, being from Chicago, he worries about young people and a culture of violence.
âChief Keef scares me. Not him specifically, but just the culture that he represents,â said Lupe. âSpecifically in Chicago. And I donât speak this about any other city because Iâm not from there. But like my family lives in Chicago. So my nephews, my cousins, my friends, and my peoples they all in those hoods that he represents. When you drive through Chicagoâ¦The hoodlums, the gangsters, and the ones you see killing each other. And the murder rate in Chicago is skyrocketing and you see whoâs doing it and perpetrating it, they all look like Chief Keef.â
âWhen it comes to the point that you know that the kids who are doing the killings, and theyâre kids 13 to 19-years-old, and you can replicate that in New Orleans, you can replicate that in Oakland,” he added. “All the kids look the same. But to know that those are the kids doing the killing and you take one of those kids and you celebrate thatâ¦When youâre at high schools speaking to students, telling âem how to survive the summer and you turn on the radio and you hear that? You like, âAw nah.ââ
”He Just Had A Lot of Game…”
Young Money’s Shanell got Too $hort to assist her on the track “These H*es Winning,” and as she broke down her time with the $hort Dog in a post for SOHH, the femcee revealed how nervous the Oakland rap legend made her initially.
“When I very first started out, I did a couple of songs on Too Short’s What’s My Favorite Word album,” Shanell wrote. “I was scared of him at first because he says ‘B*tch’ and to a lot of people he’s disrespectful when it comes to women. But he was really, really nice and respectful and he just had a lot of game on how you look at things.”
“So when I was doing this record, ‘These H*es Is Winning,’ I knew it was something that people were either gonna to love or hate, especially women,” she continued. “No woman really wants to be called a h*e but, again, that word, to me, has been given a meaning based on how society expects a woman to act.”
In the song, I’m not really saying be a h*e, but who cares what they call you? Be about what you want to be about,” wrote Shanell. “If they want to call it being a h*e, then be a h*e but you’ve got to win. A lot of women out here are trying not to be a h*e but are really being taken advantage of in situations because they feel like, ‘If I do anything else, I’ll be looked at as a h*e or a b*tch.’”
”I’m Pissed Because Chris Brown Wanted This…”
Boxing promoter Damon Feldman has announced that there will be no boxing match between Drake and Chris Brown. According to Feldman, the event won’t be happening because Drake is not down to throw gloves with Brown.
The two stars’ infamous nightclub brawl back in June sparked speculation of a celebrity boxing match and Feldman and wealthy entrepreneur Alki David offered the two million each to box for three rounds in a Las Vegas fight.
“Drake won’t box,” Feldman tells RapFlix. “He said he doesn’t want to go that route. So basically he punked out. There will be no fight now.”
“The boxing match would have settled the grudge and helped charities,” he added. “I’m pissed because Chris Brown wanted this and everything was set!”

We told you earlier that Allen and Tawanna Iverson had reconciled…..well, at least long enough to get it in. But now they’re back on the "outs" and Tawanna wants a restraining order.

So now, Tawanna wants a restraining order and she’s accusing Allen of hiding money from her. Sigh….we will keep you posted. But am I the only one who wants to see these two on next season of VH1′s "Couples Therapy"?
