Lauryn Hill was NEVER scheduled as Nicki Minaj's Guest #SummerJam #Hot97



Turns out that Lauryn was Nas's guest not Nicki's so it makes me wonder what that last nicki tweet was about when she said
Camron,2chainz,Nas,LaurynHill,BeenieMan,FoxyBrown,LilWayne,Birdman,Tyga,JaeMillz,GuddaGudda
Makes it sound like Lauryn was apart of her set. But anway back to what Ms Hill had to say via twitter today.
No disrespect to Nicki, but I need to clear up an inaccuracy. I was not scheduled to be a special guest on her set at Summer Jam, I was invited by Nas to perform with him. I don't have details on exactly what transpired between the station and the artists, but I do support artists standing by their beliefs, and walking with integrity. We have to find a better way to commercially exploit music, while giving artists their proper respect. This cannot be done while taking their contributions for granted, or trying to control the scope of their growth and power through threats and fear tactics. We can do better than this, there is a better way, or else 'we' (the proverbial we) find ourselves in danger of being hypocrites!!!
Now i don't know how stating a fact was a fear tactic but We respect what you saying on walking with integrity. But If it was that it wouldn't even be a issue. Nick backed out because wayne said so not because SHE herself felt disrespected. If thats what it was then i think her fans would of understood more instead of her saying:
I go above and beyond for my fans. But won't ever go against wayne's word. What he says, goes.
Because in all reality the barbs paid to see her Not WAYNE. But hey that's just my opinion. Whats yours??

BVM Music Choice: Anthony Flammia ( @AnthonyFlammia) - The Looper

As a blogger I love finding new talent (well knew talent to me) and I can say I have listening to Anthony Flammia.. Surfing social media and I happen to stumbld upon this video on my dash Those raw vocals made me do a quick search and that is how I found his "The Looper" project. What is the looper you ask?? The Looper was created in its entirety tonight, May 1, live at Premiere Studios in New York. With the help of his RC-505 Roland Loopstation, Anthony created every song onstage through a process of looping himself beatboxing and stacking blended harmonies with sound effects, together making up the instrumentals over which he sung, audience participation very much included. All songs are original and were written, produced, arranged and performed by Flammia himself. Check it out here  and enjoy the dope harmonies
