First Lady Michelle Obama is gearing up to release a Hip-Hop album. That is not a misprint. Although Mrs. Obama won’t be dropping any verses, she has collected a handful of rap vets and younger acts for the record as part of her “Let’s Move” anti-child obesity campaign.
Surprise, surprise. Along with sharing the new release date of his oft-delayed debut album, Excuse My French, French Montana revealed that his next official single, “Freaks,” featuring Nicki Minaj, will feature a recognizable sample.
The Hip-Hop Inaugural Ball was held last night (January 20) at the Harman Center for the Arts in Washington, DC. Artists like 2 Chainz, MC Lyte, Meek Mill and John Legend were honored with awards. Legend also stated that he believe Hip-Hop helped Barack Obama become President of the United States.
