Young Jeezy Shares His Good Ass Night On ‘Guy Code’

A new season of MTV 2’s “Guy Code” is well underway, and on Tuesday night’s epsiode, which airs at 11pm EST on MTV 2, Young Jeezy shares his idea of a ‘Good Ass Night.’ Think you can keep up with Jeezy’s agenda from sundown to sunrise? Find out.

“‘A Good Ass Night’ for me would start off in maybe 8 to 10 different clubs, some of them would be exotic entertainment, the rest of them would be probably the hoodest clubs in America,” Jeezy admits. What’s next?

“We’re gonna get an assortment of chicks, we’re gonna put them on the party bus and party no the way to the next club,” he adds, noting that there will be plenty of Patron, Ciroc and champagne involved. The party will obviously rage until the early morning hours, when breakfast will simply be topped off with more champagne.

Catch “Guy Code” at 11p.m. on MTV 2.

50 Cent’s Street King Immortal Due In November

Get More: Music News

50 Cent dropped his free album 5 (Murder By Numbers) only a few weeks ago, but he’s already looking forward to his upcoming 5th studio project Street King Immortal. The LP is now expected to arrive on November 13 via Interscope and Shady/Aftermath Records.

Fif has fought some very public battles with his label recently, airing them out on Twitter for not supporting him, then later backtracking. All of that aside, though, it seems like there might be smooth sailing for here on in. Knowing that his studio album would be delayed, 50 told MTV News that he needed to drop a street LP.

“What I’m releasing right now is a part of me wanting music out during the middle of the summer,” he said about 5 (Murder By Numbers). “I had a plan for myself: I wanted to have the new record come out during my birthday. I don’t really need label support for this project. It’s about the actual music, and I don’t think people buy what record label you’re on; I think they buy music or buy into the actual artist themselves.”

Drake Gets Custom NCAA Championship Ring From Kentucky Wildcats

If you remember this line from “Thank Me Later”: “Damn, I swear sports and music are so synonymous, Cause we want to be them, and they want to be us,” know that Drake wasn’t kidding at all. Rappers and athletes clearly share a bond, but that was taken to a new level this weekend when Drake received a personalized NCAA Championship ring from the Kentucky Wildcats.

Drake shared a photo of the ring, engraved with “Drizzy,” via Instagram this weekend, probably confusing some fans as to why he’d received a ring…since he doesn’t play ball with them. But the Toronto rapper has been building a relationship with the team over the past three years, making a notable appearance at Big Blue Madness in 2009 after coach John Calipari was hired.

He had this to say in 2010, “All of us really just bonded this year. I went to see a lot of the games last season. I’m also very close with Coach Cal, so I just showed my support. I took a lot of planes to see a lot of games.”

Drake also beat Kevin Hart in a heated game of paintball this past weekend while back at home, but he didn’t receive a ring for that victory.

Lupe Fiasco Ready To Record All City Chess Club Mixtape

By Nadeska Alexis with reporting by Sway Calloway

It’s amazing what a little pressure can do. Fans have been waiting patiently for music (or any news, really) from Lupe Fiasco and his All City Chess Club, and now it finally seems like a mixtape could be on the way.

The first rule of All City Chess Club is: “If they said it, they’re in it.” That’s the word according to Lupe Fiasco, who gathered a few talented young rappers that were “rocking on the same wavelength” to form a powerhouse collective. The problem, however, is that J. Cole, Wale, Blu, Mickey Factz, B.o.B, Asher Roth and company haven’t linked up to record anything substantial, but Lupe says the right efforts could yield a mixtape in the near future.

Lupe has his own album, Food Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album, Part 1, coming up this fall, but during this week’s episode of“RapFix Live,” a few members of his club — Diggy, Mickey Factz, and B.o.B — had questions for him about the status of the collective.

Mickey Factz, echoing the sentiments of fans, wanted to know, “When are we gonna get everybody to do this All City Chess Club project, brother?” adding, “Call B.o.B, I’ll get Wale, I’ll get Cole — let’s just make this happen. It’s getting ridiculous now. We’re going on about two years now. Let’s make it work.” Lupe, momentarily taken aback but generally amused by the barrage of questions, laughed it off, then gave in. “Aight, let’s do it,” he said. “Everybody who’s a part of the All City Chess Club, let’s do it. Let’s make something happen. I’m ready.”

Since we’ve haven’t heard much from or about the crew, save for their “I’m Beamin’ (remix),” Lupe explained his original vision behind the all-star collective: “Everybody [has] their own piece, and I never meant it to be a Wu-Tang thing or nothing like that,” he said. “[It was] just to show some unity from everybody who was rocking on the same wavelength — so Blu, Asher Roth, the Cool Kids, Mickey, I reached out to J. Cole, I reached out to Wale, Diggy of course, and my man Dosage from Philadelphia.”

Of trying to rope everyone in to record a project, Lupe said, “That’s gonna be mayhem, but ya’ll wanna do it? Let’s do it. It’s a process. We’ll put it together correctly and write, and make sure everybody gets their fair share. I think it’ll most likely live in the mixtape world so we don’t get caught up in that label thing.”

With the head count over 10 at this point, it seems reasonable to expect a mixtape project from the All City Chess Club over a studio-backed LP. “You know, the publishing splits on that are gonna be bananas?” Lupe said, laughing. “And that’s what I was tryna tell ’em, like, ‘Man, you gonna get like 30 cents [each].’ “

So, new mixtape from All City Chess Club following Food Liquor II? “I’ll do my best. I can’t make any promises, but I’ll do my best,” Lupe said. Currently, the full lineup stands as: J. Cole, Wale, B.o.B, Charles Hamilton, Blu, the Cool Kids, Dosage, Diggy, Asher Roth and Pharrell.

And far as his Child Rebel Soldier supergroup with Kane West and Pharrell, Lupe explained: “Everybody’s schedule is mad different, everybody’s in mad different places. I honestly think it’s something that went into a coma on the operating table, and it’s just in a coma in the other wing of the hospital, waiting to wake up.”

Rihanna And Calvin Harris Have Awkward Dressing Room Encounter

By Sowmya Krishnamurthy

In a new interview, Rihanna’s “We Found Love” cohort, Calvin Harris, reportedly jokes about a very awkward encounter he had when the songbird tried to get close to him. 

Via Entertainment Wise, in an upcoming interview with Q magazine, Harris shares that Rihanna once tried to get more friendly with him, by inviting him into her dressing room, but it didn’t really work out.

“She’s tried,” he reportedly told Q. “She’s like, ‘Yeah, come on and hang out in my dressing room.’ I’m like, ‘Arrrgh!’ I mean, what do I say to Rihanna?” Harris ultimately missed his chance to hang with Rihanna due to his own nervousness. “She’s great, she’s well friendly, she’s nice, I see that,” he said. “But, I can’t. That’s my own fault because I’m really awkward around her.”

The duo shared the stage at this year’s Coachella festival without any apparent awkwardness. During Calvin’s set, Rihanna (who was not expected to show up) announced her arrival at the festival with a series of tweets and racy Instagram pics, and on Sunday night she joined him to perform her hit single “We Found Love.” The two seem to be fine platonic friends. Rihanna recently tweeted a line from Harris’ “Feel So Close” which he retweeted.
