Drake and Majid Jordan are Surrounded By Hot Women in “My Love” Video

The video for Drake and Majid Jordan’s single “My Love” is out. It’s nothing particularly exciting or noteworthy in the visuals. The artists are just surround by a ton of hot, weed smoking women in a fancy motel. The music video is shot in ominous dark color multicolor light, which is fitting with the songs lyrics. Even though Majid Al Maskati, Jordan Ullman and Heartbreak Drake are being caressed and seduced by beautiful half naked hotties, they still ask repeated “Why you want to be my love?” That takes self-control. The video was directed by Common Good.

The mysterious OVO duo loos like they’re gearing up to make an official return to music. Hopefully “My Love” is the start to something big (hopefully a new project). The record debuted on Apple Music along with Drizzy’s “Energy” video. Check out the video above.

Listen to Rick Ross Feat. The-Dream, “Money Dance”

For the second day in a row, Rick Ross drops a new song. Today Ross releases “Money Dance” featuring The-Dream. The new cut is kind reminiscent of “Dice Pineapple” with is smooth production, sultry hook and light keys. ”Money Dance” is over seven minutes long and will be featured on the MMG bawse’s upcoming album, Black Dollar. Ross shines, handling the beat like a hip-hop vet. “Funny to see a ghetto nigga so classy/Enchanted by women who speak nasty/Tip toeing to court, went there for the past week/Leaning on my lawyer pinky looking glassy/Charges dropped, these plaintiffs just wanna tax me/Secret service wanna see me driving taxis,” he raps. Not to be outdone, Dream snaps on the hook and the final verse, “This for real niggas with Maybachs/All debts forgiven this is the payback.”

Black Dollar drops Thursday, Sept. 3. Yesterday (Aug. 31) Ross released “Foreclosures,” now listen to the Jake One-produced “Money Dance” above.

Jay Z Asks Judge to Keep His Criminal Past and Finances Out of “Big Pimpin’” Case

Jay Z is getting ready to head to court to head to trial for the long-running “Big Pimpin” lawsuit and is asking the judge to keep his personal history and finances out of the courtroom. In October, Hov will take the stand and testify to the court as a defendant as plaintiff Osama Ahmen Fahmy, the nephew of Baligh Hamdy, the artist responsible for the original “Big Pimpin” trial, and his lawyer team grill the rapper for copyright infringement.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jay’s lawyer, Andrew Bart, made a motion to the judge to “preclude evidence and arguments relating to the superstar’s financial condition.” TMZ takes it a step further claiming that Jay’s lawyer team is also asking the court to keep his criminal history out of the court room but since Fahmy is claiming Hov and Timbaland stole the sample, his life of crime before hitting it big in music is relevant.

Bart believes that his client’s financial status will be used by the plaintiff’s legal team to attempt to “bias the jury” and “artificially inflate the size of a potential damages award.” U.S. District Judge Christina Snyder will hear arguments from both sides at a hearing scheduled for Sept. 16.

Jim Lauderdale Goes ‘Soul Searching’ on New Album

A two-time Grammy winner whose songs have been recorded by George Strait, Patty Loveless, the Dixie Chicks and many others, Jim Lauderdale’s own recorded input spans nearly 20 years and has encompassed country, bluegrass, folk, gospel and other genres. Now, the musician who has also become one of the most visible proponents of the genre known as Americana is exposing listeners to a wide array of his influences in a two-volume collection called Soul Searching, which will be released on September 25th. Soul Searching, Vol. 1 (Memphis) and Vol. 2 (Nashville) will be available as a double-LP or as individual records.

In Memphis, Lauderdale recorded at Royal Studios, home base for producer Willie Mitchell and Hi Records, where Al Green cut such iconic tracks as “Tired of Being Alone” and “Let’s Stay Together.” Produced by Lauderdale, the LP spotlights some of Memphis’ finest musicians, including Charles and Leroy Hodges, and Alvin Youngblood Hart. Volume 2, Nashville, was produced by Lauderdale with Luther Dickinson, and was recorded at the historic Nashville RCA Victor Studio A, where music legends Dolly Parton, Waylon Jennings, Roy Orbison, Elvis Presley, George Jones and many others have recorded. The recording celebrates the successful effort to save the studio from fading into obscurity at the hands of real-estate developers.

Lauderdale also hosts the weekly “Buddy and Jim Show,” on SiriusXM satellite radio, with ABC’s Nashville bandleader Buddy Miller and is also co-host of “Music City Roots,” the weekly live radio, podcast and PBS series. He’s also the subject of the documentary, Jim Lauderdale: The King of Broken Hearts, released in 2010. A recipient of the SESAC Inspiration Award, he recently received the prestigious American Eagle Award from the National Music Council.
