Swizzy swung by Funk Flex’s shop to talk art, music and even takes to the ones and twos. Nicki later brought her junk in the trunk by to talk about sneakers and critiques some of the hottest male artists in the game.

The secrets out. Reps from Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys have finally confirmed with AP that the couple are having their first child and are set to tie the knot at a private ceremony later this year. Swizz was previously married to singer, Mashonda. Congrats!
DJ Scoob Doo & Drama are prepared to release, Fetti Holmes Pt. 2, which will contain new music from Birdman and Drake. The project will also be hosted by Lil Wayne with recorded phone conversations from Rikers. Here is one of them, where Weezy says he doesn’t recall one of the many videos he shot before he went in.
“Everybody’s calling me. I talk about that shit. Once a day somebody’s gotta say something about the muthafuckin’ ‘Single’ video. I forgot we did that. I was like, ‘I don’t even remember even doing that.”1515
Banks says he and his G-Unit compadres are going to heat things up this summer with solo projects to Fif’s Invitation tour. One of the things Lloyd’s particularly hyped about is his next batch of material.
“I just been so eager to get out there and give the people what they expect from Lloyd Banks. If they think ‘Beamer, Benz, or Bentley’ is it, wait until you hear my second and third official single. It’s definitely gonna be crazy.”1515

Man, where do we begin? This afternoon, Puff held a press conference for his Diddy Beats headphones at the Best Buy in Union Square, NY. He was joined by Monster Cable founder Noel Lee, Dr. Dre, and Jimmy Iovine. Unlike the previous in-store, the panel only answered set questions. However, Puff and Dre did participate in a 106 & Park interview via Skype. (Check clip above).
After the conference, I made my way to the backstage area and checked in with the Doc. Sorry guys, no footage of that. He gave an ineffable response when asked to describe the sound of “Under Pressure” and speculated that the record should drop sometime next month. I know, I know. Don’t shoot the messenger.
Next, we took a freight elevator down to 13th St. Peep Puff in the corner. That’s Dre with his back turned.
Outside, Puff and Biggie’s former right hand man, D-Roc braved the heat and walked to their next location. Along the way, I asked Puff to clear something up. Last March, word spread that he was set to purchase the Crystal Palace soccer team. He confirmed that he was interested in franchise, but said “nah we rolling off on that, right now”. No goal.
By now, Diddy’s making his way south of 5th Ave and is followed by a thick entourage. Eventually, journalist Martin Bashir catches up and interviews him all the way to an ice cream truck parked on the corner of 13th St. Of course, this story’s far from over.
It’s less than 24 hours until Ross drops his mixtape, The Albert Anastasia EP. But until then, Styles and Ricky got some money to blow on track number tree.
Cube spoke briefly earlier this month on wanting to produce a N.W.A. biopic epic drama. This afternoon on Hot 97, he gave an update to Angie Martinez and said that everyone’s on board including Eazy-E’s widow, Tomica. Yeah, yea!
Guess Sanaa didn’t work out. The free agent hops on the Drizzy joint and does what he does best. Everyone is looking for love these days.
