If you’re one of those people who will spend an entire concert filming it from your iPhone, just be sure NOT to post clips of Janet Jackson on Instagram!
Several of Janet’s loyal fans got the shock of their lives recently when their Instagram Accounts were suspended after they posted a few 15 second clips from her ‘Unbreakable’ tour.
Turns out, Janet isn’t too keen on the clips being distributed online and she’s been filing ‘copyright violation’ notices to keep ‘CONTROL’ of the clips.

Usher has joined forces with Nas and Bibi Bourelly for a newly released song called “Chains.”
The artists address racial injustice and police brutality in the song’s visuals, which feature portraits of Black lives lost to police brutality, as well as their names, ages, and stories.
The video was released on Tidal earlier today and in the opening text, states: “While racial injustice keeps killing, society keeps looking away.”
From Travyon Martin to Sean Bell, the images presented serve as evidence of what Nas sums up in one succinct bar: “We’ve got a problem that needs to be solved.”

Michel’le is back with a new single called ‘It’s Nothing’ and she’s also released an official video for the track.
The song, a powerful testament of the personal evolution of the songstress, showcases her innate ability to pen a ballad and sing from the depths of her soul.
Michel’le’s rich vocal style shines through on this emotional ballad that speaks of a woman who chooses herself over the unhappiness of a failed relationship. “It’s Nothing,” describes the dismissive way in which she lets her man know it’s nothing for her to walk away from something or someone who hurts her.
In the video Michel’le shows fans why she is the woman that music lovers of all races, genders and ages can relate to. This vocal powerhouse contradicts her title as an R&B Diva; which brings to mind over-the-top glam; instead she saw the vision of the video producer, Brooke Coleman, who wanted to showcase the emotion of the song and Michel’le’s natural beauty. This was more than accomplished by featuring Michel’le in a relaxed setting with minimal make-up. All you get is raw emotion and in your face vocals.

On the eve of releasing his latest single, Young Jeezy released an open-letter to his fans about social injustice, poverty, and the plight of being a Black man in America. The thought provoking letter is accompanied by Jeezy’s TM88 and Southside-produced song titled “God.”
As you know, 2015 marked the 10th anniversary of Jeezy’s Thug Motivation 101, so it’s definitely been a benchmark year for him.
In the letter, Jeezy (who signed the letter ‘Pastor Young’) preaches about several issues, including systemic racism, stating:
I would like to take this time to ADDRESS the Street Disciples and Congregation to express my concerns and frustrations on what’s going on in our communities all over the world today.
There’s a war going on, but you have to ask yourself, who is the enemy? We die to claim our streets and hoods when we don’t own as much as a mail box. That tells me one thing—If we all were on the same page and had the same cause, there is nothing in the world we can’t change or make happen.

If you’re tuning in late to the Meek Mill
rap beef, it may already be too late but let me catch you up a bit.
A little over a week ago, rapper Meek Mill instigated a bit of online beef by calling out Drake via Twitter, implying that Drake hires a ghostwriter to pen his rhymes:
While Drake could have struck back online, he chose to go old school and put his writing skills to the test with not one but TWO Meek Mill diss tracks: “Charged Up” and “Back to Back Freestyle.”

Most following the new millennium rap beef expected a quick response from Meek Mill, whose latest album is topping the charts, but it took over 5 days for him the clap back with a track of his own, ‘Wanna Know,’ that didn’t even come close to touching either of Drake’s tracks.
Now that Meek has responded, many have suggested that the battle is over. Especially since Meek Mill’s new diss track, created a firestorm of memes suggesting that he call it quits.
