Looks like Mr. Justin Bieber is an unofficial Young Money affiliate.
Today (April 4th), Justin Bieber was spotted sporting a red YMCMB (Young Money Cash Money Billionaires) shirt while being escorted through a Berlin airport. The teen pop idol was wearing a Blood red (uh oh) long sleeve tee with a black YMCMB logo embossed across the chest. Bieber paired his Young Money garb with a backwards Obey cap and some Family Guy bling – a diamond encrusted Stewie.
Last month, Justin Bieber tweeted “Thank you #ymcmb for my bday gift..” with a photo displaying a box full of YMCMB shirts in an assortment of colors. Lil Wayne & co. will keep the artist dipped in YM gear for a while with all of those shirts. Read More...
In the icy homeland of mythic figures Thor and Odin, two god-like trailblazers of hip hop joined forces yesterday (March 29) in Oslo, Norway.
While on the final date of his solo European tour, Queens native Nas was seen cooling out with Wu-tang Clan swordsman Raekwon backstage at the Sentrum Scene venue. The pair reconnected on Rae’s latest long player on the track “Rich and Black” after first connecting on Raekwon’s classic debut album Only Built For Cuban Linx and the song “Verbal Intercourse.”
DJ Green Lantern tweeted a photo in the wee hours of the morning of the pair enjoying the spoils of being virtual rap royalty. The always fashionably dipped Raekwon sported a red and white pullover cap with matching scarf, a black jacket and keeping it low key on the jewels with just a right hand pinky ring and left wrist watch.

On Sunday (February 27th), while backstage at Ne-Yo’s U.K. tour, Ne-Yo and Trey Songz were spotted discussing a possible collaboration on Ne-Yo’s untitled fifth studio album. Trey Songz opened up for Ne-Yo Sunday night at the UK venue, The O2.
Ne-Yo spoke briefly with MTV News about his fifth album, “Libra Scale was a project, it was an experiment. The people that got it, got it. The people that didn't, it's all good. I got a little cool for the room, I understand that.” Ne-Yo told MTV News. “But this next album is more about just listening to the music, vibing out, determine your own adventure, back to what it is I normally do. Be looking for that around September." Read More...
NBA all-star forward Carmelo Anthony made his national television debut as a New York Knick against the loaded Miami Heat team starring Lebron James Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh this evening in a crushing defeat for the empire state. However, there were a few sports junkie rappers inside Miami’s American Airlines arena, one in particular who once chastised James and Wade for not acknowledging him in print.
New Orleans native and current Miami resident Lil Wayne was spotted courtside at tonight’s game and while the comments Wayne made in his post-prison Rolling Stone magazine interview were indeed blistering, Lebron and Weezy have seemingly patched up the rift. No word on if Wade and the rapper have made the same truce since the interview was released to the public.
Other attendees at tonight's game include Birdman, sitting alongside DJ Khaled as well as producer Timbaland.
Lil Wayne has been a fixture at Heat games of late, with the Young Money honcho appearing courtside at Miami’s close win over the lowly Washington Wizards this past Friday. A known sports enthusiast, the man born Wayne Carter has been a guest on the sports cable network ESPN’s "First Take" morning show various times and seen playfully warring with long time analyst Skip Bayless.
Wayne also made the Made U Look segment during Super Bowl XLV in where the southern megastar was seen adorned in his beloved Green Bay Packers gear, complete with the “Cheesehead” hat. Although his home team of the Saints won the Super Bowl in 2010, Weezy has long ago claimed Green Bay as his favorite team.
The Knicks defeated the home team Miami Heat 91-86.
Kanye West loves Twitter and for fans wanting a glimpse into the daily life of a megastar, this is a good thing. The superstar tweeted a photo earlier tonight of he and teen sensation Justin Bieber working together in a studio.
In RapFix’s ongoing "Made U Look" series, we’re turning our eyes on the curious photo of the stars in nearly identical poses with the Chicago vet supposedly mentoring the youngster on production. Read More...

After the release of his fifth studio album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, Kanye West shied away from doing press, until now. For RapFix’s “Made U Look” series, we’re spotlighting Kanye West on the cover of VMAN’s Spring 2011 “No Risk, No Reward: The Thrill of the Game” issue. On VMAN’s 21st issue, in Louis Vuitton, Kanye West has a mouth full of money. Who can blame him?
Photographer Karl Lagerfeld shared a few words on the Chicago rapper/producer. “His strength is mixing music and fashion. He has an instant instinct for what looks and sounds good. He makes everything new and different.” Read More...
