MICHAEL BARBER’S TAKE YOUR TIME RE-RELEASED (FORMER INTERSCOPE DIGITAL RELEASE

September 9, 2016
Leave a Comment

Michael Barber and Josh Tifer’s song, Take Your Time, was originally released on Interscope Digital back in 2011. The song charted on Itunes and sold over 109,000 copies to date, has been re-released on Michael’s newly released album, Sand Dollars.

Michael Barber is a rapducer, from Evansville, Indiana, best known for being the last artist signed to Death Row Records. That label deal went by the wayside and under water as Death Row entered into it’s last bankruptcy. Barber’s highly touted album, Thrift Shop II Hip Hop was never released.

“Take Your Time” was the first of a music fusion between metal rock guitarist and producer Tifer and self proclaimed, “rapducer” (rapper + producer) Barber. The duo formed the group, Illuminati Sky, and toured the state of Florida twice most notably opening for Naughty by Nature.

Sand Dollars is a mix of those songs that were stranded on Death Row as well as a few projects recorded with Illuminati Sky. Illuminati Sky described their fusion sound as RUNK(Runk = Rap + Punk).

Barber and Tifer, wisely, owned the rights to Take Your Time, and the release is all within the legal limits. The whole album, Sand Dollars is available for sale on all digital outlets online.

Purchase Sand Dollars & Take Your Time on Itunes or Bandcamp Now!

Jared Leto says he was ‘tricked’ into playing Joker in ‘Suicide Squad’ says ‘fu-k WB’

August 22, 2016

After months of boasting and broadcasting about his performance as The Joker in the recently released movie Suicide Squad, Jared Leto seems to be backpedalling about his “method” approach: the Oscar-winning actor now claims he was “tricked”into playing the role.

Coincidentally timed with backlash about the movie’s lacklustre vibe and countless tepid reviews, Leto reportedly opened up to “campers” at a Q&A session at Camp Mars, a wilderness retreat for fans of Leto and his band, 30 Seconds to Mars.

An attendee of the camp, who identified themselves only as “La Leto,” posted Leto’s thoughts from the Q&A. [The post has now been deleted.]

“He was very honest about the film this weekend,” read the post. “His disappointment in what he’s learned of the theatrical cut (he’s still not seen the film); feeling sort of tricked into being a part of something that had been pitched to him very differently; thinking it would’ve been more artistic than what it became; feeling overwhelmed by the hate regarding the look and choices.”

Leto also confirmed his Suicide Squad contract banned him from doing certain activities he enjoys, like rock climbing.

It’s been reported by numerous sources that Leto shot hours of footage for the film that ended up on the cutting-room floor.

Reviews indicate that The Joker is also a fringe character, only appearing sporadically in a handful of scenes, despite the trailers that make him seem like a main character in the movie.

he Joker star was asked about his contract with the film company, which is rumoured to contain a clause preventing him from undertaking any dangerous activities like rock climbing and wearing garish clothing to film premieres.

“fu*k ’em,” Leto is said to have responded, provoking laughter from the crowd.


Lil Wayne Sues Universal Music, Says He’s Owed Profits From Drake, Nicki Minaj & Tyga

March 29, 2016

Universal Music Group is paying itself instead of shelling out royalties it owes Lil Wayne, according to a federal lawsuit filed by the rapper-producer’s attorneys Monday in California.

Dwayne Carter Jr., known as Lil Wayne, is suing UMG and SoundExchange, claiming he’s been shorted millions from his work discovering and nurturing artists like Drake, Nicki Minaj and Tyga.

Carter claims Universal has diverted tens of millions of dollars of his profits to repay itself for the $100 million it advanced to Cash Money Records, Inc.

“With Universal’s knowledge of Lil Wayne’s rights to partial ownership and profits from those artists, Universal and Cash Money entered into a series of agreements which, among other things, diverted Lil Wayne’s substantial profits to repay debts of Cash Money,” states the complaint. “As a result, 100% of the profits that should have been paid to Lil Wayne as a result of his ownership of Drake, Nicki Minaj and Tyga records have been seized by Universal to repay debts that were neither incurred by nor were the obligations of Lil Wayne.”

Carter’s Young Money Label is a joint venture with Universal’s Cash Money Records designed to manufacture, distribute, promote and exploit performances of new recording artists discovered by Carter and signed to the label, according to the complaint.

He claims their 2003 agreement states the label’s profits “would be divided 51% – 49% between Cash Money and Carter, and ownership of all the Young Money Label property, (e.g., master recordings, copyrights, intellectual property, good will) similarly would be owned 51% – 49% between Cash Money and Carter, respectively.”

After multiple extensions, the term expired June 4, 2015, which puts Drake’s upcoming album in the crosshairs.

“Universal should be grateful and respectful to Lil Wayne for the millions of dollars in distribution fees and profits they have earned on the artists he brought to the company, instead of seizing all of his profits on those artists in a desperate attempt to recoup the tens of millions of dollars they are owed by Cash Money Records,” said Carter’s attorney Howard E. King of King, Holmes, Paterno & Soriano in a Monday statement.

SoundExchange, the nonprofit that collects and distributes digital performance royalties on behalf of copyright owners, is also named as a defendant in the suit.

Carter claims “Universal has claimed a right to 100% of the label performance royalties attributed to the YME Records” and “SoundExchange refuses to pay any of the money due to Young Money LLC and Carter individually based on Universal’s conflicting demand.”

Carter wants the court to clear it up and is seeking at least $40 million in damages and disgorged profits and a “judgment declaring the parties’ respective rights with regard to Plaintiffs’ share of label performance royalties.”

Universal Music Group did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

2015 Boxing Globe Boxer of the Year: Kell Brook

January 3, 2016
Leave a Comment

Kell Brook only fought two times this year after coming to America and taking the belt from Shawn Porter in 2014, but in those 2 fights Brook was barely touched and undefeated in every round.

The vote was tight between our staff, and we had to come back to look at the overall numbers a 2nd time, but Kell Brook is our Boxer of the Year.

The man called Special K, had an impressive year, (or year in a half but who is counting?) and did more than enough as the IBF Welterweight Champion in 2015.

We understand that JoJo Dan isn’t a top of crop opponent, but Brook didn’t handle him like one. He easily dismantled Dan in just 4 easy rounds, and when talking about the fight at our staff meeting we couldn’t remember if Dan even landed a good solid punch in those 4 rounds.

It was a take care of business fight, and Brook handled it like he was working from home on his day off. Light work.

Just 2 months later, Brook entered the ring at the O2 Center as the headliner of a giant card to face Frankie Gavin, and he was on point like a rifle gauge. The fight was called in just 6 rounds.

The 2015 Boxing Globe Boxer of the Year, only fought for 10 rounds in 2015. So it wasn’t by the amount of work, but the dominance in those 10 rounds.

Dominated is an understatement. Brook won all 10 rounds, and wasn’t even hit hard enough to kill a wasp in any of the rounds.

This was the closest vote we have had in our 3 years of naming a boxer of the year, but it was hard to not pick Brook even over PBC Boxer of the Year, Keith Thurman and ESPN’s pick of Canelo Alvarez who actually tied Brook in our first vote.

Congrats to Special K, Kell Brook! @SpecialKBrook on Twitter
