For those of you who thought Usher’s new single was about sex, you got it all wrong.
While out in Atlanta, Usher talked to Ryan Cameron about the concept of the Diplo-produced record, telling him it’s about a relationship and how it’s reached its peak. He also says it’s a double entendre, but it’s not specifically about sex.
His album sounds like it might be a complete monster, though.

Nipsey Hussle & Jonathan Mannion linked up for a piece of artwork (a one of one) in the studio one day, as they create it from a photo shoot & Neighborhood Nip’s creative drawing. The artwork is a moment in time that Jonathan is proud of.
It’s been a big year for Chris Brown so far. Not only did he redeem himself at the Grammys by taking home a couple of awards and performing his hit single “Turn Up The Music,” but he’s now in good graces with Rihanna as they both remixed each other’s track.
Will it be enough to bring home another platinum plaque for his upcoming album Fortune? We’ll find out May 8 when the record hits stores, 3 days after his birthday.
Let’s hope he can stay controversy free until then.

Here’s a new one from Peedi Crakk called “Rocket” produced by the homey Cardiak.

This one is jamming now all we need is a video to make it complete.
