Juelz Santana Covers Rolling Out Magazine!
Rapper Juelz Santana got his big break as a part of the New York hip-hop group the Diplomats in the early 2000s. The rap group led by Santana and fellow rap legends Camron and Jim Jones rose to stardom, carrying unmatchable charisma and the borough identified as Harlem on their backs.
As a solo artist, Santana has been featured on various projects with some of music’s biggest stars. In 2005, he released a mixtape titled What the Game’s Been Missing. It was one of the top projects released that year. Santana landed his first top 10 hit with “There It Go! (The Whistle Song)” that earned a peak position of No. 6 and spent 24 weeks on the Billboard charts.
Santana has taken a step back to reflect on his achievements and tend to his family. Now a part of VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop” show, he has given viewers a peek at his personal life. Joined by his gorgeous wife Kimbella, the two unveil the struggles and balances of being married within the entertainment industry.
Santana also started to release new music that has captivated the streets. With a new single out titled “Dip’d N Coke” featuring French Montana and fellow Diplomat phenomenon Camron, he has once again set himself apart in search of continued success.
Our friends over at Rolling out got a chance to catch up with the hip-hop heavyweight for an exclusive interview. You can read that HERE!
#RHoA: Shamea Morton Wasn't the Least Bit Surprised Phaedra Parks Brought Up Those Rumors About Her and Kandi Burruss
"After her making those types of accusations, she just went too far," the #RHOA pal said.
Phaedra Parks shocked us all when she brought up rumors earlier this season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta that Shamea Morton had hooked up with Kandi Burruss and her husband Todd Tucker. So imagine how Shamea herself felt when she watched that moment back on TV. "I played it back several times, but when I first saw it, my mouth just dropped open, I was like, 'Oh my God,’" Shamea recently told The Folks Over At Bravo’s The Daily Dish. "I was watching it with my fiancé actually, and he just burst out laughing."
Shamea said her fiancé, Gerald Mwangi, didn't take it too seriously because he knew it wasn't true, and after the initial shock of it all, she brushed off the comments as well. "They always say when you’re doing really well, your name is going to come up. When they’re not talking about you, that’s when you should worry. Half of those things and the person that kind of put them out there, she’s the devil in a dress," Shamea said. "So I always knew that. So when those things came out, I wasn’t too shocked."
Earlier this season of RHOA, Shamea had spilled some tea of her own about Phaedra, saying that she tried to "holler" at her ex-husband. When Porsha brought those comments up to Phaedra, that's when Phaedra mentioned the Kandi and Shamea rumors to Porsha and Shereé Whitfield. Shamea said that she never trusted Phaedra, but was still able to remain friendly with her prior to this incident. "I was cordial to Phaedra because of Porsha even last season in Miami, I tolerated Phaedra just because of Porsha’s new friendship with her," Shamea explained. "But now, after her making those types of accusations, she just went too far."
If there is a silver lining to this situation for Shamea, it's that her friendship with Kandi has not only survived but become even stronger through it all, especially since the RHOA hitmaker has faced her fair share of allegations about her sex life from Porsha as well this season. "We have been able to lean on each other through this ordeal," Shamea said. "I think we were able to vent to each other because we were both put in the hot seat and betrayed by people we once called friends."
Shamea can also thank Kandi for one of her favorite moments this season. "This season was definitely an eye opener for me, to say the least. I just could never [have] predicted some of the things that went on," she said. "I had some highs and lows this season, I had some exciting moments with me getting engaged and Kandi throwing me a surprise engagement party, and then I’ve had lows, like not having my best friend Porsha show up at the engagement party and things just kind of down spiraling from there. It’s been an emotional roller coaster."

#NEWMUSIC from Sean Garrett – Do What You Say
Sean Garrett is making his comeback this year as an artist, and he’s delivering something for the bedroom with his raunchy new single, “Do What You Say.”
Over a melodic track, The Pen requests his girl to undress, and he promises to follow her orders. “You know I want this / I’m gonna do what you say / When we start fuckin’ / I’m gonna do what you say / But I’ve got one question / How much can you take? / ‘Cause when we start fuckin’ / I’m gonna do what you say,” he sings.
“Do What You Say” follows Garrett’s Lil Yachty-assisted single “Look On Your Face,” and according to Sean, this is just one of the many emotions that his forthcoming album will feature.
Take a listen to Sean’s new joint HERE
“The album is full of emotions, some are more gritty than others,” he told Rap-Up. “‘Do What You Say’ embodies the emotion when you instantly connect with a woman and every time you look at her, you know it’s go season.”
New #HIPHOP from New Music: Kendrick Lamar – ‘The Heart Part 4’
King Kendrick returns. After posting a cryptic “IV” teaser on Instagram earlier in the day, Kendrick Lamar unleashes the fourth installment in his series “The Heart.” Part 4, which arrives nearly five years after “Part 3,” finds Kendrick fired up and firing on all cylinders.
“The five-foot giant woke up out of his sleep, ni**a,” declares K-Dot before taking shots at President Trump (“Donald Trump is a chump, know how we feel punk”) and an unnamed foe.
“My fans can’t wait for me to son your punk ass and crush your whole little shit,” he raps. “I’ll Big Pun your punk ass, you a scared little bitch / Tiptoein’ around my name, you’re lame / When I get at you, homie / Don’t you tell me you was just playin’.”
And make no mistake about it, Kendrick is here to claim the throne, with boastful rhymes (“I am the greatest rapper alive”) and a reference to Jay Z’s recent Songwriters Hall of Fame honor (“Ho, Jay Z Hall of Fame, sit your punk ass down”).
Over the explosive five-minute track, he also hints at the release of his next album on April 7. “You know what time it is / Ante up, this is here forever / Y’all got till April the 7th to get y’all shit together.”
“The Heart Part 1” appeared on 2010’s K. Dot Drops project, while “Part 2” was on Lamar’s Overly Dedicated mixtape, released later that same year. “Part 3,” featuring Ab-Soul and Jay Rock, dropped on the eve of good kid, m.A.A.d city‘s release in 2012.
“Part 4” arrives on the heels of Kendrick’s performance at Coachella next month. The Compton MC will headline both weekends of the festival in Indio, Calif. on April 16 and April 23

Awwww, “The T.D Jakes” Show Has Been Canceled
Tegna has decided not to renew The T.D. Jakes Show. Apparently Jakes was the one with poor ratings. After only six months, the show, which was only cleared in about 60% of the country, has officially been canceled.
“We are really proud of T.D. Jakes,” said Bob Sullivan, Tegna senior VP of programming. “The economics of daytime, not Jakes or the quality of the show itself, is what has taken us out of play for the second season, which is frustrating.”
The show premiered in Fall 2016 and aired primarily on Tegna-owned stations and re-aired on OWN at 5 p.m. ET. After two months of poor ratings, however, OWN executives moved the show from its daily evening slot to Sunday mornings, where the show ran as a marathon starting at 8 a.m. ET through the early afternoon.

Becky G, New Yellow Power Ranger, Will Play First Big-Screen LGBT Superhero
The Power Rangers‘ Trini will come to terms with her status as a superhero — and her identity as a queer woman — in the series’ upcoming movie reboot, marking a first in cinema.
The Yellow Ranger, played by Becky G, will be in the early stages of exploring her sexuality in the film, according to The Hollywood Reporter, and it just so happens that she’ll be the first big-screen superhero to be a decisive part of the LGBT community.
“For Trini, really she’s questioning a lot about who she is,” Power Rangers director Dean Israelite told THR. “She hasn’t fully figured it out yet. I think what’s great about that scene and what that scene propels for the rest of the movie is, ‘That’s OK.’ The movie is saying, ‘That’s OK,’ and all of the kids have to own who they are and find their tribe.”
Trini’s sexuality will come into question in the movie’s second act, when a fellow character assumes she’s out of sorts because of “boyfriend problems” — ultimately, they’re corrected to “girlfriend problems.”
David Yost, a gay actor who played the 1990s origin series’ Blue Ranger, said Trini’s new story marks a huge step for the community and will likely inspire many young kids who are having a tough time nailing down who they are.
“They really stepped up to the plate,” says Yost. “I think so many people in the LGBTQ community are going to be excited to see that representation.”
