It's been a busy week for Rihanna. Not only has she been named sexiest women alive by Esquire Magazine (Is there a sexiest women not alive award?). She also released the cover art for her new album, "Talk that Talk". It's hitting stores November 21st, just in time for the Christmas season. If any friends or family are reading this post, this album would be the perfect gift, supposing you couldn't get me Rihanna herself.

This song debuted on the Battle of the Fresh Jams tonight and I was told the music video was hilarious. I can now confirm that this vidja did make me chuckle, but more importantly it made me really want some watermelon.
Posting the video after the jump.(Disclaimer: The video is pretty harmless but the lyrics aren't)
"I've listened to "Give Me Everything" about 100 times now and everytime it gets to Pitbulls line:
"Hustlers move aside, so I'm tiptoein, keep flowin'...I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan."
I always wonder, can he say that?
Welp, the answer is NO. Lindsey is now sueing him for damage to her charcter and to have the song stripped from radio broadcast.
Sooooo make sure you really enjoy it next time you hear it on POWER, it might be the last time.

An Israeli couple have given a completely unique name to their newborn daughter. A name that doesn't exist anywhere else in the country.
They named their new little girl after one of the most popular features on facebook... "Like". "Like" is named after the like button on facebook, which either lets people know when a friend approves of something or has too much time on their hands.
They took the number one name on my list of possible names for my children. Good thing I always have "Netflix Jr." to fall back on.

FIRST, Lil Wayne has confirmed that his new album, Tha Carter IV, is complete and set to release August 29th (maybe) .
What I thought was interesting was his influence for his acoustic single that's destroying the charts, "How To Love". Lil Wayne explanied:
"That song is just sweeping the world. It's touching every woman, that's what it was for, itwas like Tupac had 'Keep Ya Head Up' and it was a message to women and little girls across the world just to keep your head up even though things are hard. That's what my song was. A lot of women don't know how to love because there's deep reasons for them not knowing how to love."
EVERYONE knows that texting while driving is a bad deal. I'm not sure anyone can argue against that, but it's a whole lot safer than playing, lets say Angry Birds, while driving.
A new study shows that around 35 percent of drivers now use mobile apps while driving. EESH, I hope getting in an accident was worth breaking a record on Hold The Button.
ONE APP you can't ever get in trouble for (probably) is our Power 93.9 App. Look up KDGS or Power939 and grab it for free on the Apple App Store.
Lupe Fiasco is making the interview rounds on the heels of his release of his new album, "Lasers" with the hit single "The Show Goes On". In a recent interview he revealed that he thinks Obama's international policy promotes terrorism and went even so far as to call Obama himself, "the biggest terrorist is Obama in the United States of America."
Lupe countined to defend his point by saying,
"The root cause of terrorism is the stuff that the U.S. government allows to happen, the foreign policies that we have in place in different countries that inspire people to become terrorists. And it's easy for us, because it's really just some oil that we can really get on our own.â

It's always interesting to hear artists speak about something other then their music. You may not like what he stands for, but its refreshing to hear a guy who won't compromise.
That title comes courtesy of this new joint by an Oakland born rapper name Kreayshawn. She went from relative obscurity to a record deal with Sony this week, all due to her viral youtube music video for her incredibly catch song, Gucci Gucci . After getting over 1.5 million views, Sony offered her a one million dollar record deal.
That's whats up!
Here is the link ----> Gucci Gucci
Listen if you dare, you'll be humming it all frickin day.
Also probably NSFW. Just a heads up.
One last thing, is it me or is a women rapping just so incredibly hot?
Alright, I've got a beef. I like 50 cent just fine. His old stuff isn't terrible and I'm sure his new stuff will be passable. As a person, he seems like he would be alright.
I felt that way until I heard this rumor. The word on the web is that 50 cent is going to sign Jersey Shores, Pauly D, to a three record CD deal. If you aren't familiar with Jersey Shore, Pauly D is the orange one who wears tight shirts and impossible to like. It seems 50 Cent is trying to become relevant again for something other than really inappropriate tweets about Japan.
"Wave will hit 8am them crazy white boys gonna try to go surfing."
- 50 Cent
It's ironic that 50 is offering Pauly this deal, because that's roughly how much I'd be willing to pay for one of their "Frisbees".
Full Pauly and Fifty deal HERE
Also, 50 is making it happen with a new single for yall sometime soon.
Charlie Sheen just tweeted that he and Snoop were in the studios working on a collaboration :
âWarlock meets his makers-music makers that is @SnoopDogg @robpatterson666 get ready to rock the Sheenius within.â
No date for their "song?" has been announced.
I'm expecting musical and lyrical greatness.
If Snoop or Sheen are reading this, if you want an instant hit, you should sample a little Rebecca Black in your joint...
Supposing your only inspiration is a calendar.

So everyone is lovin the stuff Wiz has already put out and it's making me impatient for his first full-length record. Amazon.co.uk recently revealed the track list for the Pittsburg natives first major-label LP.
The tracklisting for Rolling Papers:
"When I'm Gone"
"On My Level" -- ft. Too $hort
"Black and Yellow"
"Hopes & Dreams"
"Star of the Show" -- ft. Chevy Woods
"Get Your Sh**"
"Rooftops" -- ft. Curren$y
I was shocked to see only a few collaborations on this record. Looks like Khalifa is doing it his way and earning his paycheck on his own skills.
The world will have to wait to see if the Black and Yellow emcee will see any green from his debut attempt.
Rolling Papers drops March 29th.
Forbes just released the top wealthiest hip-hop artists. It breaks down like this:
1. Diddy ($475 million)
2. Jay-Z ($450 million)

(If I made as much as Diddy; I'd pay people to carry me too)
Diddy, Jay-Z and Mr. Young are the top three no doubt, but what might surprise you is who came in a very respectable forth place:
4. Youso ($12 thousand)
My hip-hop career hasn't exactly taken off. Here areÂ the real artistsÂ rounding outÂ the top five richest hip-hop artists:
4. Birdman ($100 million)
5. 50 Cent ($100 million)
Why isn't some of your other favorite artists on the top 5? These estimations by Forbes are built on some specific criteria.
"Â valuing current holdings, looking at past earnings, leafing through financial documents
and talking to a bevy of analysts, attorneys, managers and other industry players to find the nitty-gritty details.
We considered only performers, which is why Hip Hop mogul Russell Simmons isnât on this list."
