Soulja Boy loves him some Soulja Boy, and why shouldn’t he? He’s wanted by multiple record labels, and he’s the hottest rapper in the game after having the biggest 2018 comeback … according to him.
The rapper tells TMZ his old record label, Interscope, desperately wants to sign him back, so he used it as leverage with his current label, eOne, to strike a deal for a new album … which he says is coming soon. Soulja says it’s 12 or 13 tracks … and it’s going to get the year kicked off right.
Soulja’s also got a list a mile long to prove he’s hip-hop’s rising star once again — including playing a venue he never landed back in the day — and doubles down on his Tyga bashing.
There’s more, though … because the rapper’s still got beef with Drake over allegedly stealing bars from his song in 2006. Oh, and he reminds us he paved the way for Justin Bieber on YouTube.
Dolores O’Riordan is being honored by her bandmates exactly 1 year after her sudden death.
The Cranberries announced Tuesday they’ll be releasing a final album featuring Dolores. The album’s titled “In the End” and it’s already catching plenty of buzz following the release of the album’s first single, “All Over Now.”
The album’s a collection of songs Dolores worked on before she died last January in London from an accidental drowning. Dolores and bandmate Noel Hogan reportedly started working on the songs in May 2017 and demoed 11 songs later that winter.
But, Dolores died before the band could play the songs for its record label. And, after months of mourning, Rolling Stone reports the band got the O’Riordan family’s support to move forward with the last album.
“The worry was that we would destroy the legacy of the band by making an album that wasn’t up to standard,” Hogan told Rolling Stone. “Once we had gone through all the demos that Dolores and I had worked on and decided that we had such a strong album we knew it would be the right thing and the best way that we could honor Dolores.”
The album’s available for preorder now and is slated for an April 26 release.
Leave it to Banksy to take Paris Hilton‘s first album and turn it into a work of art so coveted, it’s fetching more than $ 2,000 on the auction block!!!
The street artist totally reimagined Paris’ self-titled 2006 album, complete with spoofed song titles and a topless Hilton on the cover, plus tons of not-so-subtle digs at Paris inside the CD booklet.
According to RR Auction, Banksy re-interpreted about 500 copies of “Paris” immediately after the album dropped, and placed his work in 48 record stores across the United Kingdom. Bids for the rare copy have already surpassed its $ 2k estimate!
With Bansky spoofing album art and track titles, he enlisted DJ Danger Mouse to remix the tunes … and, we gotta say, it still bumps.
Check out the gallery … we’re guessing Paris’ exposed breast on the cover will draw your eye, but the real fun is inside the booklet. Banksy depicts Paris in tons of different poses, next to captions mixing funny insults with social commentary.
Here’s the original “Paris” cover from ’06, and as you can see, Banksy’s version is way more risque.
The auction officially closes January 9 … good luck!!!
