Mary J. Blige is a timeless artist with more hits under belt than a Major League slugger.

This extremely awesome lady has been out of the musical limelight for awhile now. Nevertheless, she is back and better than ever with a new music, a documentary, and a  new album (the latter two of which are named), “The London Sessions!” Kontrol Magazine was privileged to attend a screening for the documentary, which has been met with rave reviews. Never before have people seen this amazing star so vulnerable or truly seen what it takes for her to deliver the quality she and her fans enjoy. Mary admits she felt as if she was becoming stagnant in her music in recent years. Not wanting to glide on the sheer loyalty of her fans she opted to record and live in London for a month naming the album and the documentary for her experiences there.

“The London Sessions,” may prove to be Mary’s most eclectic album to date. While in London she even worked with producers and artist there. One such artist being, Sam Smith. The hybridization of their style and with her own should prove to be a truly beautiful mix! Then again, she always delivers there is no reason to doubt her now! Mary is slated to perform at the upcoming American Music Awards. Will we be hearing a new single, or seeing a collaboration with Sam?

Mary was recently a recipient of Atlanta’s prestigious, “Phoenix Award.” This award is the highest honor an individual, or group, can receive from the Mayor of Atlanta. It recognizes major accomplishments and services rendered to the city, state, nation or world! Other recent Phoenix Award recipients include Nobel Peace Prize winner Muhammad Yunnus; former heavyweight boxer and champion Evander Holyfield, Tyler Perry, WSB-TV Channel 2 journalist Monica Pearson (formerly Kaufman) and TBS Chairman and CEO, Philip Kent. As you can see Mary is in good company. With so much going on for her right now, one has to wonder what is next for Ms. Blige. All we know is she has not reached her peak and The London Sessions should be apart of your musical library on Monday, November 24th! Click the video links to hear more of Mary J. Blige’s amazing interview following the screening of her documentary!

New Music Alert! Check Out “The Oracle,” Mase’s Diss Song Against Cam’ron (@Mr_Camron) AND Cam’ron’s Clapback!

It has been awhile since any male rappers had a good beef with one another. Lately it seems the beefs have been between Nicki Minaj and her rivals (or haters if you’re one of her Kenz), Remy Ma, Cardi B, and Lil Kim.

Well two rappers who we consider true blasts from the past, Ma$e and Cam’ron are apparently beefing, with the former releasing a diss track entitled The Oracle

It has been awhile since any male rappers had a good beef with one another. Lately it seems the beefs have been between Nicki Minaj and her rivals (or haters if you’re one of her Kenz), Remy Ma, Cardi B, and Lil Kim.

Well two rappers who we consider true blasts from the past, Ma$e and Cam’ron are apparently beefing, with the former releasing a diss track entitled The Oracle!

We are not sure what events prompted Ma$e to drop the track on Black Friday morning, but check out a few lyrics from the track below:

mase and cam'ron

“Ever since 10 you was a thirst n***a/And I ain’t gone talk about the time you fuck your sister”

“You always play the sucker part/Where was all that Rico shit when you left Jim in Rucker Park?”

“I’m the pretty n***a, wrist litty, sunwear/Diplomat only meaning that you ain’t from here/You had a run here but y’all n***as is done here/All these pretty women and y’all n***as bringing guns here/You way pass the gun line/Every time you talk of me you sound like one time”

“I know you need money I get it/I know your digital sells I know about your digits I know Sony Red don’t want to see your shit distribute/I know it’s crickets so fuck it use my name so they can click it/I made you, I raised you, why would I play you/When you dealing with this power n***a Flex can’t save you”

“Now you can tell Dave East, ASAP Mob whatever you want/The whole hood know I’m the origin”

“Any n***a ever got diplomatic immunity was n***as who ratted/Or wanna snitch on their community”

Listen to the entire song below:

Cam’ron you have got some explaining to do! He definitely had to respond to this as Ma$e has pretty much called him broke and accused of him being a rat–not a good look or reputation to have in the rap world. Cam’ron surprisingly clapped back with an Instagram post:

Cam’ron hasn’t really been one to utter threats publicly or anything like that unless necessary. However, Cam is definitely one of the best at roasting in the rap game. After hearing Mase’s diss track towards him, Cam’Ron took to Instagram to post a picture of Pastor Mase holding a bible in front of the Roxy with the caption, “Good morning to u to betha…lol, Let’s play nigga..” There’s no saying what might end up happening in the beef but it could pretty much be assumed that there’s definitely going to be one or two memorable hip hop beef moments throughout it all. 

Good morning to u to betha…lol, Let's play nigga.. 😘

We would have preferred he released a diss track of his own, but this clap back is hella funny! We’ll keep you posted!

We were surprised to learn Niko is an actual artist in real life with an amazing voice that lures you in like a Siren; hence why we are currently “intoxicated” by Intoxicated. The song is so sultry and alluring.
