Jay-z and Alicia Keys are set to hit the stage and perform “Empire State of Mind” for the World Series Game 2 as the New York Yankees host the Phillies.  This track off Jay’s platinum selling Blueprint 3 album serves as the theme song for every New Yorker and what’s better than a live performance from the hometown artists themselves.

Hopefully, Lil Mama isnt around or this time Jay-z and Alicia Keys will need extra security!! lol

Carolina Hurricanes Sue Rapper Over Song

nhl09

Tyrone Banks was just a fan and aspiring MC when he created his “Carolina Hurricanes” track to promote his favorite team, and the Carolina Hurricanes front office had no problem with this.  He asked that the track be played during home games and the team went as far as to playing it during television commercials and online ads.  As compensation, the team would give him home game tickets.  Now the team is suing the hometown MC for trademark infringement.

The Hurricanes claims he misused their trademarks and he promoted the song in ways that would illustarte a relationship b/w the team and himself.  They also noted he wearing memorabilia which could damage their reputation.

Guess u can say, he got caught skating on thin ice…lol

Timbaland, the super producer has made hits for everybody, I mean everybody.  He’s produced for the Justin Timberlake, The Pussycat Dolls, Nelly Furtado, Jay-z, One Republic, P. Diddy, Danity Kane, The Game, Brandy, Ginuwine, Aaliyah, Missy Elliott, LL Cool J, Rihanna, Omarion, Brittney Spears and a host of other big name artists.  But he’s still hungry to conquer more mountains standing in his way and he hasn’t forgot where he first began: his music.

That’s why he’s teamed up w/ Rockstar Games to create “Beaterator”.  It comes out for PSP & Playstation (sorry XBOX gamers) on Sept 29th & Oct 2nd.  Rockstar had this to say about their new game: “Featuring thousands of loops and sounds made by both Timbaland and Rockstar, Beaterator puts the power to make professional-level music at your fingertips in a format that’s portable, accessible and fun as anyone can now create great-sounding music.”  Here’s the trailer for the “Beaterator”!!!

Look out Guitar Hero, you may have some competition in the future lol
