Quavo and Offset were arrested for marijuana posession, possession of a schedule II narcotic, and possession of a firearm.

TIDAL has not gotten off to a fast start. The other day news broke that Andy Chen, who is the CEO of TIDAL’s parent company Aspiro, was forced out along with 25 other employees. Aspiro was acquired by Jay Z last month for $56 million dollars. A statement was released…

“TIDAL’s new interum CEO is Peter Tonstad – a former CEO of parent company Aspiro Group. He has a better understanding of the industry and a clear vision for how the company is looking to change the status quo. He’s streamlining resources to ensure talent is maximized to enhance the customer experience. We’ve eliminated a handful of positions and refocused our company-wide talent to address departments that need support and cut redundancies. TIDAL’s offices globally will remain and grow: we are already hiring for several new positions now. We’re excited about our future and what’s in-store for fans who want the best listening experience.”

Chile over the weekend Nelly was arrested on charges of felony possession of drugs, simple possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. Trooper Michael Loftis pulled over a coach bus that was carrying Nelly and five others around 9:20am on Saturday because it failed to display the stickers mandated by the U.S. DOT and International Fuel Tax Association. The trooper smelled marijuana and felt it was appropriate to conduct a probable cause search of the bus. A plastic bag containing five colored crystal-type rocks that tested positive for meth, as well as a small amount of marijuana and other drug paraphernalia. Multiple guns were also discovered such as a gold plated 50 caliber Desert Eagle pistol, a 45 caliber Tarus pistol, and a 500 magnum Smith and Wesson. Nelly was taken to jail. Developing!

Seems like that artists who exclusively release music on Tidal, which happens to be the new streaming service headed by Jay Z, just might suffer on the charts. Even though the service has said to pay the highest royalty percentage to these artists, this is still something to consider. According to a study and report from Billboard, if an artist puts out a song on Tidal the song will chart lower on Billboard’s Hot 100 since the service isn’t as popular as other platforms like iTunes and Spotify. Of course Billboard came up with these chart positions by assuming a song released on Tidal would possibly suffer 95% decline in streams compared to being on other on-demand music services. Lets see what happens with Tidal!

kanye west

Kanye West did a surprise show in Armenia which is Kim Kardashian’s homeland. Yeezy opened the show with a few popular hits and the whole city surrounded Swan Lake, in center city. Kanye took things a bit far and jumped in the lake while performing. The crowd followed Kanye to the lake and the police called off the rest of the performance. The West’s are leaving Armenia and headed for Israel. Wonder what’s going to happen next .. 🙂

The saga continues! After being in the hospital for over two weeks with little brain activity, the Houston and Brown family have reportedly decided to take Bobbi Kristina off of life support tomorrow on February 11th. The grandmother Cissy Houston is said to want it to happen tomorrow because it is the anniversary of Whitney Houston’s death. Sources close to the family allegedly say letting go of Bobbi on Feb. 11th will “keep the mother and daughter together for eternity.” Authorities are still investigating to see if there was any foul play.

Beyonce released a behind the scenes video from her “Precious Lord Take My Hand” performance at the 2015 Grammy’s and explained why it was so important for HER to sing that song..

“My grandparents marched with Dr. King. My father was a part of the first generation of Black men that attended an all-White school. My father has grown up with a lot of trauma from those experiences. I feel like now I can sing for his pain. I can sing for my grandparents’ pain. I can sing for some of the families that have lost their sons.”
