Azealia Banks Drops Video For “Harlem Shake Remix”….Despite Beef With Creator Baauer

 photo ScreenShot2013-02-16at101526AM_zps7b4cd526.png

Azealia Banks just dropped the video for her "Harlem Shake Remix."  Just to prove she really doesn’t care what creator of the (new) song, Baauer, had to say about her using his track.

 

Peep the hair twirling video inside….

Azealia Banks loves to stir the pot of drama.  But this time, we don’t really think it’s her fault. 

This "Harlem Shake" craze taking over Youtube and everywhere else–where one person in a group starts dancing to the Electro House track, then the camera cuts to everyone in the camera shot doing their own crazy dance once the beat drops.

So Azealia took the track and rapped over it for a remix.  Something often done by rappers and singers int he business who want to put their own spin on things.  And rarely–especially if they are not selling it–do they need to get permission to do so.

When "Harlem Shake" creator Baauer (no, not the one we’re used to hearing/seeing Diddy do back in the 90′s…this is some new ish..but we were confused to) heard Azealia’s remix, he went off on her via Twitter and had her remix snatched off Soundcloud on Valentine’s Day. But we’re sure if Jay-Z had laid some tracks on that mug he would have been saying "Thank You."

Billboard reports:

Azealia took to Twitter to respond to Baauer, who tried to block her remix of his surprise hit "Harlem Shake." She responded to the Mad Decent artist by calling him a "pussy" and stating that he doesn’t "belong in hip-hop."

After musician Brillz wrote that they were "too busy making tunes for u to steal tho," the Harlem native fired back, "you guys are all fagots… May you drown in faggotry."

And now we’re here.  With a video.  And we like her version.  But she’s on her own with the F bombs.  Check it above.

BROTHAZ WITH PROBLEMS: “Elmo” Creator Kevin Clash INVOLVED In Alleged UNDERAGE SEX SCANDAL + Swizz Beatz OWES Nearly $2.7 Million In TAXES

Rapper Swizz Beatz was slapped with a New York state tax lien while "Elmo" creator Kevin Clash took a leave of absence from "Sesame Street" because of a sex scandal.  Find out more info inside…

"Elmo" creator Kevin Clash has taken a leave of absence from his role on Sesame Street to deal with allegations stemming from an underage sex scandal.

Kevin (who was 45 at the time)  was accused of being sexually involved with a 16-year-old boy (who’s now 23) after the accuser revealed their relationship to lawyers at Sesame Workshop.

In response to the revelation, Sesame Workshop told TMZ …

"In June of this year, Sesame Workshop received a communication from a young man who alleged that he had a relationship with Kevin Clash beginning when he was 16-years-old. This was a personal relationship, unrelated to the workplace. We took the allegation very seriously and took immediate action."

Officials from the company say an investigation was conducted and they found that the allegations of underage sex was unsubstantiated.  But clearly this issue isn’t over.

Kevin told TMZ that "I had a relationship with [the accuser]. It was between two consenting adults and I am deeply saddened that he is trying to make it into something it was not."

So what does that mean for Elmo?

Sesame Workshop said, .

"Kevin insists that these allegations are false and defamatory and he has taken actions to protect his reputation. We have granted him a leave of absence to do so."  And they added, "Elmo is bigger than any one person and will continue to be an integral part of Sesame Street to engage, educate and inspire children around the world."

So it sounds like the Elmo character will live on….Kevin Clash’s career at Sesame Street might not.   He’s been associated wiht the character for YEARS.  This is a sad situation.

 

 

And another guy with problems…..

Though he’s made millions producing for artists like Alicia Keys and Eve, in addition to signing lucrative endorsements with companies like Reebok, producer Swizz Beatz is still millions in debt to the IRS and NY.

The state of NY recently filed a tax lien against Swizz for unpaid taxes from 2010 amounting to $ 98,246.18 while the IRS says he owes them $ 2.6 million.  Damn!

While he’s constantly ranked as one of hip hop’s highest earners, Swizz has been consistently plagued with a slew of taxes issues.  Maybe Mr. Dean needs to hire some new folks to watch his money in the bank and pay those taxes correctly.  Especially when you have umpteen kids and a wife to care for.

So far, he and his reps haven’t addressed the tax woes publically.

Rick Ross, The Throne + Tyler, the Creator Are Big Winners at 2011 Sucker Free Awards

There’s nothing sucky about this. Rap superstars Rick Ross, the Throne (aka Jay-Z and Kanye West) and Tyler, the Creator were some of the honorees at MTV2?s first annual Sucker Free Awards in Miami on Dec. 4 (Sunday). The all-star event was created to salute rap artists who made an impact in the music game within the past year.

Rozay was on hand to accept his Artist of the Year award, which is a heavy, silver-coated king’s crown trophy. The Miami rapper uttered his infamous grunt (“R-Ruh”) before thanking his team, Maybach Music Group. “I’m so grateful and so thankful,” he said during his acceptance speech. Meanwhile, his MMG artist Meek Mill nabbed the Who’s Got Next honor. “I want to shout out Ricky Rozay, the whole MMG team, the Warner Bros. team and people who help me get here today,” he said.

Although they weren’t in attendance, Jay-Z and Kanye West were double winners at the Sucker Free Awards, winning Club Banger: Song of the Year (‘N—as in Paris’) and Certified Classic: Best Album of the Year (‘Watch the Throne’). Also, snatching two awards was Tyler, the Creator, who won for Must Follow Artist (for his Twitter game) and Rookie of the Year.

Despite these wins, the night truly belonged to Lil Wayne and Birdman, who won the much-deserved Crew of the Year award for their team YMCMB. There’s no question the duo had a big year with the success of Nick Minaj, Drake and Weezy, himself. They were certainly sucker free in 2011.

Tyler, The Creator Gets Animated on Cartoon Network’s ‘Regular Show’ Series

Tyler, the Creator As Blitz Comet

Cartoon Network

An animated version of Tyler, the Creator appeared on the Cartoon Network’s series ‘Regular Show‘ on Nov. 21. The program follows Mordecai, a blue jay, who is best friends with a raccoon named Rigby. Together, they spend their days trying to entertain themselves whenever possible.

In the ‘Rap it Up’ episode, Tyler plays bully rapper Blitz Comet who is a member of a rap posse called CrewCrew featuring Alpha Dog (Donald Glover) and a female spitter named Demolition (MC Lyte). When Mordecai and Rigby’s bubbled-headed (literally) friend named Pops gets humiliated for reciting poetry, the duo challenges CrewCrew to a rap battle. There’s only one problem: Pops can’t rap, he can only recite Shakespearean-style poetry.

Tyler is hilarious as the wise-cracking rhymer Blitz Comet. In an earlier freestyle session, Blitz disses his rap competitor Big Trouble (also played by Tyler) with some comical verses. “Blitz Comet on the scene / Step to me and you are gonna get creamed / Corn / All up in your teeth / You reek / You’re the opposite of Chic / You’re a Freak / You’re rhymes are like antique,” he spits.

This is a funny 11-minute episode that offers a cool moral at the end that goes something like, “Poets are not losers.”

Tyler isn’t the only high-profiled rapper who has been turned into a cartoon. Rap mogul Jay-Z recently made an animated appearance on Hub TV’s children’s show ‘The Secret Millionaires Club.’

Is this the new trend in hip-hop — rappers on cartoon shows? If it is, then this is a trend we fully support.
