Tweet, Charlene Keys

New Music: Tweet “C 4EVA”

Before Twitter’s first Tweet by Jack Dorsey, we knew Tweet as singer, Charlene Keys. Brain fart? You know her from “Oops Oh My” w/ Missy Elliot; although digging for personal favorites, I prefer “Turn Da Lights Off”.

These days, Tweet is signed to Dubose Music Group, working on her third album Simply Tweet. Yesterday she released “C 4EVA”; the third of her #TweetTuesday series; it’s a hint of where her head is at in 2012.

Can we say a very relaxed, chill state of mind? Yes, we can.

Joseline Hernandez, Love and Hip-Hop Atlanta

Joseline, Love and Hip Hop Atlanta: “I Have Drama with Everybody”

One episode in and Joseline Hernandez is the star of Love and Hip-Hop Atlanta. The former stripper/Rihanna look-a-like’s incredulous in-your-face ‘management’ issues between her, Stevie J. and his girlfriend, Mimi, has everyone talking. For me, it’s her indecipherable accent; a mix of Spanish, hood, southern yams and brash ignorance.

I know @MsJoseline, I’m not/you’re not ignorant, but Concreteloop got it right.

Check out Joseline’s VH1 profile video.

“I just really want to teach young girls how to really make it without having to do the things that I had to do. Being in the streets since I was 13-years-old. On my own. Stripping at a young age. I just want to show girls that they can love their self more and know that they can do something with their life.”

Immediately after that, those slick VH1 producers cut to her throwing a drink at Stevie J. That ain’t right.

Hot 97 Peter Rosenberg

HOT 97 Peter Rosenberg Speaks on Nicki Minaj/Summer Jam

Let’s face it, Funkmaster Flex did not give Nicki Minaj the tongue-lashing he should have or at least hyped up at Summer Jam. One of the real problems with the interview was Peter Rosenberg, the person who made the comment, wasn’t in on the phone call.

Well he spoke to TMZ on Monday afternoon and his explanation shows why he should have been involved.

“When I went out there I wasn’t really thinking about it. I was trying to hype up all of the fans who were there to see Kendrick Lamar, School Boy Q and more underground acts, and yeah, that sort of just came out. “

Here’s the actual footage.

So what happened next?

“I get off stage from introducing Slaughterhouse and I walk back and my boss is like, ‘Dude, did you say something, because Nicki says she’s not doing the show.’ I’m like, ‘Uh, yeah I said something on the festival stage.’ I didn’t think it was that big of a deal.”

The complete TMZ interview

The main point..

“Why would she listen to me? I’m a Jewish kid from the suburbs of Maryland who grew up on hip-hop and loves hip-hop, and I take it seriously, but it’s just an opinion. I don’t hate Nicki Minaj. i don’t have any beef with her at all. I think that song is wack and corny. I always have. I know there are people sitting in the studio right now who feel the same way.

That’s just all I said. I don’t see why it’s that big a deal. We’re HOT 97. We have opinions over there, we always have and no one crew is going to come out and say we can’t have opinions.”

Now that would’ve been a good starting point for Nicki Minaj to bounce off of; instead of Funkmaster Flex giving the third hand, let’s be friends, back and forth interview that it was.
