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??

New Music: @YoungVinchi Mixtape "ITS ME" 2012 / Get Ya Hands Up

Get The Mixtape Now You know the drill when most unsigned new artists drop a mixtape: disappointing generic- sounding music, tired themes, lame lyrics, fake bravado on the visuals. But then, every so often, a new rapper hits the streets and just like a tasty cheeseburger, the more you bite off and chew, the better he gets. Put your order in now and make it official; “It’s Me” by Young Vinchi is 2012’s best- kept tasty secret. No need to take the D Train uptown to the Bronx’s Bainbridge Avenue to get it, Young Vinchi – with his clever rhymes, sly imagination and hype J Staffz beats - brings it to you . “It’s Me” – hosted by DJ Lyle of BET’s 106 and Park - appeals to all your senses of having fun, looking good, feeling good, being young at the club: smokin’, drinkin’ and thinkin’, chasing “Shaquana and Shaquita”, and getting paid. The music - layered sonic arrangements of speaker-rattling percussion bombs, horns and keyboards- is a human bobble-head soundtrack. No
