Rapper 2 Chainz is covering the March 2012 issue of Truemagazine. On the cover, the Atlanta native is wearing a white Polo bucket hat, tee-shirt, denim jean vest and jeans. This issue also features YG and French Montana. Back in January, 2 Chainz revealed to XXL that he parted ways with Ludacris’ DTP Records and signed a solo deal with Def Jam. “2 Chainz just signed to Def Jam,” 2 Chainz proudly announced to XXL.
“It’s the Real University, Two Gun Gang, Street Executives. It’s not DTP no more,” he says. “I’m actually behind [Ludacris], he’s still my homie. I just took another route as far as running my own company and bossing up. But on the other hand, I’m still working with him. He has an album coming out this year, as well. Matter of fact, we are label mates, now, which is crazy. So, yeah, that’ll be cool. I’m looking forward to that.”
Music producer and fashion designer Pharrell Williams recently dyed his hair green. Skateboard P who is also known for his outrageous outfits was spotted at the Lanvin’s Fall-Winter 2012-2013 Ready-To-Wear collection show during Paris Fashion Week in France. Skateboard P rocked his green hair-do with a Lanvin cotton and silk zip-up hoodie, a Jeanne Lanvin Tag screen print oversized tee-shirt, black leather shorts, and hiking boots from the Lanvin Spring/Summer 2012 Collection.
MTV Newscaught up with Pharrell Williams earlier this month, and he said that he is working on something ‘crazy’ with Jay. “We’re working on something, it’s crazy,” Skateboard P said after a long pause.
Pharrell also produced “Gotta Have It” to last year’s Watch the Throne album and also laid the beat for Jay’s Blue Ivy dedication, “Glory”. With things still in the works, Pharrell is reluctant to let go of any info. Instead, he’d rather just let Jay speak on things when he is ready. “Well, you know, he’s very discreet about details and stuff,” P said. “I’m just a filmmaker, musically. I let everybody else play the roles.”
This Harlem rapper style is dope! I like how A$AP Rocky mix his music with fashion. He already became known for his music, now he is becoming a fashion icon. Rocky recently performed at Houston’s Warehouse Live. During his set, Rocky wore an $880 Y-3 Armando Shirt, $96 T by Alexander Wang stripedcrewneck tee-shirtand his signature SSUR Comme Des Fuckdown Beanie, which cost. What do you think about Rocky’s shirt and hat?
A$AP Rocky is working on his debut solo album, an A$AP Mob compilation album and a collabo album with Schoolboy Q. A few weeks ago, A$AP Rocky hit the road with Drake and Kendrick Lamar as part of the “Club Paradise” tour.
Lil Kim was photo’d chilling with Maybach Music Group CEO & Rapper Rick Ross and recording artist Meek Mill at New York’s Power 105.1 DJ, DJ Self’s annual Winter Fetish concert in PA. Lil Kim performed her verse to Mobb Deep’s “Quiet Storm” and brought a few girls on stage to twerk it to Rihanna and Chris Brown’s “Cake (Remix).” In the few pictures, Lil Kim was looking very sexy and happy as Rick Ross and Meek Mill hugged her.
