Hot wings are big business in the hood and whether you get em from your neighborhood Chinese spot or right off of Nicki Minaj’s neck (remember that?), everyone appreciates a well done wing.
2 Chainz rams that notion home in his visual for “Hot Wings” where the rapper that tends to rock way more than 2 chains finds himself inside American Deli where two shorties end up scrapping over an order of lemon pepper wings. Truth be told we don’t know what kind of wings they were but only an order of some lemon pepper wet would lead to that kind of hysteria.
Top NBA Rookie Marvin Bagley III meanwhile has become the latest player to try his hand at rapping and in his clip to “Look At Me Now” spits a positive message for the young generation wishing on a star. Is Shaquille O’Neal still the greatest baller/rapper in Hip-Hop history?

Wellllll as if this week wasn’t bad enough for Pharrell and Robin Thicke. Pharrell may be getting ready for another battle with the Marvin Gaye Estate over his song “Happy”. Jurors determined that Robin Thicke and producer Pharrell violated the rights of the late Marvin Gaye and now must pay $ 7.4 million. The copyright case stated that the pair essentially stole the sound of Marvin Gaye’s hit song “Got To Give It Up.” The problem now is there are conversations taken place about the Gaye estate going after Pharrell for “Happy” sounding like Marvin Gaye’s “Aint That Peculiar”. This may not end well. Take a listen to the mashup below and tell us what you think.
Take a listen below.
Good artists borrow. Great artists steal. On Tuesday, a California federal jury delivered its own message to artists everywhere that inspiration can rise to copyright infringement.
Robin Thicke and Pharrell had their fun getting rich off of Marvin Gaye’s handiwork but now it’s time to pay the piper. In other words, fork over a good chunk of those incredulous profits they made from the ubiquitous single, “Blurred Lines.”
A jury of their peers has agreed that the Star Trek pair copied Gaye’s 1977 smash hit “Got to Give Up” and Variety is reporting that they’ll have to pay $ 7.3 million to the family for copyright infringement. “Blurred Lines” co-star Clifford Harris Jr., a.k.a. T.I. was also named in the lawsuit but it was specified if he would have to break off his reported $ 704,774 in earnings.
The eight-person jury ceased its full day of closed-door deliberations last Friday and resumed on Tuesday hearing to reach the verdict. The Gaye family was originally asking for $ 25 million in damages but they’re still happy with the outcome.
“Right now, I feel free,” Marvin Gaye’s daughter, Nona Gaye, said after the verdict was passed. “Free from … Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke’s chains and what they tried to keep on us and the lies that were told.” Thicke and Williams made a reported $ 5,658,214 and $ 5,153,457, respectively but the money stream will end soon. Richard Busch, the Gaye family lawyer, is filing official paperwork next week to halt sales of “Blurred Lines.”
Released on March 26, 2013, “Blurred Lines” went on to become the top song of the year, selling more than seven million records in the United States alone.
Hit the flip to hear both songs side by side.

Now that Marvin Gaye’s family has won a copyright suit regarding the similarity of Robin Thicke, Pharrell Williams and T.I.’s “Blurred Lines” and the soul icon’s “Got to Give It Up,” their lawyer wants to stop the sales of that song.
“We’ll be asking the court to enter an injunction prohibiting the…
