K. Dot and the Breakfast Club so you know what you’ll be in store for.
More specifically, Kendrick reveals how he got the 2Pac interview in “Mortal Man”, being a fan of Killer Mike, his relationship with fellow TDE members (with no features from them on TPAB, btw), and his actual relationship with a longtime girlfriend, and now, fiancé. Watch/run it in the bg below.
Chance The Rapper and Donnie Trumpet are the latest to stop by Charlamagne and Co. at the Breakfast Club and talked on all things him and Social Experiment. This includes the whereabouts of SURF, supposed beef with Drake (this is new to me), and how he got a call from Jay Z to work with Madonna. Dang.
Also The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore and… from the looks of the pic… new BFF Martin Short!?! Hah! Love the randomness here. Watch a clip of that below the Breakfast Club interview where Sean talks all things album and personal life. Finally, stream the entire album on Spotify as Dark Sky Paradise is in stores today.
Saturday funnies courtesy of Kevin Hart as his promo run is on one hundred with The Wedding Ringer out soon (and then Get Hard with Will Ferrell later this spring).
Up above, he shares a classic Jay Z & Beyonce story that you may have heard before. But if not, it’s worth fast forwarding to the 22 minute mark for just a couple of minutes. The interview as a whole with The Breakfast Club is a great listen though as Hart gets serious about his mindset and approach to things, which makes me respect his hustle even more.
Back to the funnies, Kevin Hart was also on Jimmy Fallon and they created a game called ‘Slapjack’. Basically, Blackjack but the winner gets to slap the other. Pretty hilarious. Kevin Hart is hosting SNL tonite, so tune in for more fun.
During an NYC promo trip this week, Big Sean chatted with The Breakfast Club on a variety of topics from his ex-girl to his new girl (Naya Rivera and Ariana Grande, you should know by now…) and he was first immediately asked about if “IDFWU” was about Naya Rivera.
Sean clarifies that he played Naya an early version of the record he calls an anthem that can be relatable to a lot of situations (true). He does also admit he “may have gone back and changed a few lines.” …Yeah, I can see that.
They also talk about the “IDFWU” video, and scarce details on an album coming soon. It’s darker and Kanye West will be featured on it. There’s the summary, but it’s still a fun watch up above this morning.
Yup, Charlamagne’s on it, but no, he’s not rapping. Instead it’s some deep quotables from the radio personality that kick off the song with Tink handling the rapping duties. It’s over a minimal production from Timbaland, who concludes the recording telling the Breakfast Club that Tink’s album is one of the best he’s done since Aaliyah’s. Dang. We shall see…
Timbaland, producer of last week’s Rick Ross featuring Jay Z collab “Movin Bass”, joined The Breakfast Club today and actually premiered the original version of the track helmed by Chicago’s Tink. Everyone trades bars and this is how it was intended to be heard. Hey, better than last week’s version.
