“the4orth – Soulution”
Yonkers, NY native the4orth arrives just in time to deliver his “Soulution” for today’s current music scene. Not sticking to the typical trap-like phase the game currently seems to be stuck in, the4orth takes us in a different direction with his Soul & Hip Hop infused project to create a unique sound that belongs to him and only him. “Soulution” offers up features from Gnarly Phelps, Pe$os, Eades and A-Rain with the production side of things coming from Ryan “Ryu” Alexy, Benjamin Hype, Eli Myles, Until, DB andFRE$CO. Constantly evolving, the4orth has certainly laid the ground work for anyone trying to bring a problem to his “Soulution“.
Nicki Minaj just could not keep her eyes open during her interview for GQ magazine’s latest issue.
Writer Taffy Brodesser-Akner said she met with the rapper in her dressing room at the Barclays Center in New York, but Minaj was apparently too tired to talk.
The article begins:
“Her eyelashes are even and delicate, like wisps from a dandelion, and I can’t recall if I’ve ever seen her without prosthetic versions. I have had plenty of time to search my memory, though, because here on this couch, in this room, during this interview, with me sitting next to her, Nicki Minaj has fallen asleep.”
The writer adds, “To be completely accurate, she never fell into actual REM sleep during our interview, but at four separate times she dozed off, her head jerking awake at just the moment it had started to dip. In between, she was what I could call low-key and reserved, because I am generous, but the picture looked like this: those eyelids, falling, falling over eyes that would cross momentarily, closing for a moment but staying too long – a blink that lasted a few blinks longer than a blink.”
Tyga lands on the cover of the latest issue of Vibe. As we previously reported, theYoung Money rapper is at odds with his label because of the delay in releasing his new project, The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty.
In his Vibe cover story T-Raww adds fuel to the fire by dissing Drake and more. He also addresses the rumors that he’s dating Kylie Jenner.
The Kardashians fit the profile. Speaking of, you’re not dating Kylie Jenner?
Kylie? Nah. See the thing about Kylie… I’ve known Kylie and the whole family for four years. I introduced Chyna to Kim about a year ago. So everybody’s been cool, but like it’s just so hard, their world is different. If somebody wanna’ hang out, cool, I’m not opposed to hanging out with somebody. I hang out with her [Kylie], her sister [Kendall], I hang out with Scott [Disick] sometimes, I hang out with Khloe sometimes. But people wanna take the situation [with Kylie] to the next level.
The perception that’s out there on you doesn’t match the real life individual.
Yeah, my biggest song is “RACK City.” It’s just like a party song about a stripper. But anybody that meets me knows I’m a genuine person when they talk to me. I just didn’t want to make music like this, I didn’t want to be labeled, and I didn’t want to be no backpack rapper. I wanted to make music I can party and have fun to and that’s what I like doing. But if you talk to me, it’s a whole other thing.
Is Young Money a part of the creative process on this album?
Nah. I tend to distance myself from them.
Are you trying to break out on your own?
Yeah, I’m tryna’ go independent. I don’t really get along with Drake. I don’t really get along with Nicki.
I don’t like Drake as a person. He’s just fake to me. I like his music; you know what I’m saying? I think his music is good, but we’re all different people. We were forced together and it was kinda’ like we were forcing relationships together. It is what it is. But I been friends with Chris [Brown] for like six years. That’s my real genuine friend. We hang out all the time. He lives up the street from me, so we don’t just do music we hang. I think being signed to Young Money, everybody felt like they had to force a relationship ‘cause Wayne put us together. At the end of the day the reason why I signed to Young Money is because of Wayne. Not because of Drake, not because of Nicki. It was because of Wayne and my relationship with him. I try to be cool with everybody, but sometimes, everybody just has different personalities, motives, and different characters. When you realize that, you realize that’s not a place where you want to CONTINUE to grow.
