Drake Speaks to The SOurce About The Grammy's

“The one award that means most to me would be Best New Artist, based off the fact that it lets people know how early in our relationship we still are. It lets a fan know, because sometimes, even to me, the last two years feels like ten years, and Thank Me Later is really my first full length album. So Far Gone was really the first time the world got to hear from me, but it’s only really been two years and I’m really just a new artist and God willing if I can still find the creativity to have the inspiration to make music that moves people, I feel like I still have years to go. I think being in that category with such stiff competition is such a great time marker for me. It really even reminded me how young I am in this. With me and (Justin) Bieber, we are two artists that used two new forms of getting discovered. We were found on the internet in a way more independent fashion in a way people used to be discovered. We weren’t found in a showcase and signed to a label, we were discovered on a very grassroots ground level tool which now runs the world. We are internet first artists. To make it from playing an acoustic guitar in your living room, or to make it from 40’s apartment to the GRAMMYs , it’s one of the most inspiring things of our generation. “

Ms. Keri Gave You Raunchy and Makes no Excuses For It.

So by now most of the fired masses on these Internets have jumped on Keri Hilson for her recently released video. I dropped comments too because I don't think it was a good video. Raunchy yes but not a good video IMO. But with that said the over the top back lash is a bit comical to me. Especially at a time when so many folk are picking sides between Nicki and Kim but Keri is the villian for her wild expression?
If you haven't seen Keri's "controversial" video check it outafter the jump with my full thoughts on the issue.

T.I.: “Prison Ain’t For Gangsters, Prison Is For Losers.”

On Monday November 29, BET will air their next installment to their Food For Thought series. And their 1st artist is none other then T.I, Clifford Harris. Check out an excerpt below.

“To be candid with you, I learned, man, prison ain’t for gangsters, prison is for losers,” he told Smith. “Gangsters find ways to avoid prison. Gansters find ways to exit the game and legitimize their businesses and learn how to turn their strengths into enterprises. If you look around in a prison, at least myself, I saw thieves, I saw burglars, I saw crackheads, I saw, you know, the same people that I would walk around on the street, and you would never associate with these people out of respect for yourself,” he continued. “Ok, so if you’re on the street and you’re looking at these people and you are above their standards, how do you and them end up in the same place, one bed next to each other? I got to be better than that.”

T.I.’s Food For Thought airs Monday November 29 at 10:30pm on BET

Interview Mag; Rihanna by Kanye West

Here's a small portion of the sit down between Mr West and recently red hair rocking Rihanna. 
I don’t really plan on the age. It could be a year from now. It could be 10 years from now. Whenever is right. I mean, I have a lot of other stuff to accomplish before I get to kids. Whenever the time is right, I’ll just know. If I had a girl, she’d probably be really rebellious,” she laughs. “She would be like a bundle of karma.”
 After the Jump peep a few of the Mag pix........

Lloyd Banks Answers: “Is Gangsta Rap Dead?”

”I don’t think gangsta rap could ever be done or finished. When you ask yourself ‘what’s gangsta’? To me being gangsta is being responsible for your actions. Being a stand-up dude or girl, and don’t compromise for anything. Somebody who don’t bend, someone who does what they want to do.

Quincy Jones: “Don’t compare me to Kanye”

Not much love for Ye' from Quincy Jones.

Us: Kanye West is similar to you in that he’s the producer everybody wants to work with in the last decade….

Quincy Jones: “How man? No way. Did he write for a symphony orchestra? Does he write for a jazz orchestra? Come on, man. He’s just a rapper. There’s no comparison. I’m not putting him down or making a judgement or anything, but we come from two different sides of the planet. I spent 28 years learning my first skill. I don’t rap. It’s not the same thing. A producer has to have some sort of skills that enable him to be a producer. It’s totally different to know what to do with 16 woodwinds you know from piccolos down to bass clarinet. It’s a whole different mindset. No comparison. None. “

Analysis: Asia's economic history foretells Chinese slowdown

(Reuters) - The past is not an infallible guide to the future, but a reading of how East Asia's economies developed suggests China needs to get ready for an appreciable slowdown in growth in the years ahead.

And that same history lesson must have Beijing praying that it can follow in the footsteps of vibrant South Korea, not stagnant Japan.

Last weekend's gathering of the Group of 20 major economies was aimed at securing short-term growth and currency stability.

But the opulence of the lake resort where G20 finance ministers met was a vivid illustration of how South Korea has avoided the so-called middle-income trap and continued to push living standards closer to those of advanced countries.

For decades, many countries in Latin America and the Middle East have failed in this task. In Asia, the Philippines is a prominent example.

"Many countries make it from low-income to middle-income, but very few actually make that second leap to high-income. They seem to get stuck in a trap where your costs are escalating and you lose competitiveness," said Ardo Hansson, a World Bank economist in Beijing.

Not so South Korea. When war on the divided peninsula ended in 1953, the south was poorer than the north.

By 1997, though, South Korean per capita GDP (at purchasing power parity exchange rates) had reached 57 percent of the average of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, a forum of industrial democracies that Seoul joined a year earlier.

The 1997/98 Asian financial meltdown set back many middle-income countries across the region. Investment, vital to sustain medium-term growth, has still not recovered to pre-crisis levels in Thailand, Malaysia and the Philippines.

South Korea, though, after nearly defaulting on its debts at the end of 1997, pulled itself together and resumed its march up the value chain.


The key reason is that Seoul embarked on far-reaching market reforms. In particular, the government reduced the power of the chaebol, sprawling debt-heavy conglomerates whose links to the state created the impression that they were too big to fail.

But many did fail as South Korea injected more competition into the economy, liberalized imports and deregulated the financial sector that was a captive source of funding for the chaebol.

"They really changed the rules of the game for the large corporations. It became clear that being big and being close to government was not enough to keep you alive," said Randall Jones, who heads the OECD's South Korea desk.

Since the crisis, the country has grown more than twice as fast as the OECD norm, propelling per capita GDP to 83 percent of the group average by 2008.
