About the Wayne and Birdman beef:

“It was a wild interview and the outtakes of the interview got out, so there’s was a lot of loose-talk. To have someone that big say disparaging things about you, that’s a heavy-hit.”

The Daily Word: Kanye “of ALL Trades” West Stars In New Film with Common

 

image (1) 2

 

It’s clear, Kanye West is out here like an octopus with limbs in every pot! Aside for his #AllThingsYeezy releases and his clothing line debut fashion week, he’s executive producing albums like Rihanna‘s #R8, Taylor Swift‘s upcoming album Loisaidas, a film he’s working on with Damon Dash, a new series called Underground and now he’s going to be acting along with G.O.O.D. Music member Common in a film called Chiraq. Evidently, Ye’ has as many hours in a day as Beyoncé!

In this film which is a Spike Lee production, Kanye and Common unite to bring their town together. It will be exclusively available on Amazon.

 

As mentioned before, Kanye is also working on ‘Underground.’ The storyline follows slaves who plan to escape a Georgia plantation. Kanye is scoring the show — meaning choosing the soundtrack. Hmmm… Makes us think Yeezus but messing with this genius it could be anything..

Make everyday count — clearly Kanye does.

Stay Fly!

Watch: Ledisi Speaks About The Beyonce ‘Selma’ Controversy And Why She Didn’t Perform with John Legend & Common

The uproar still continues as the public wants to know why Ledisi did not perform alongside Common and John Legend during their performance for this year’s Grammy’s ceremony, representing the iconic movie, SELMA. Instead, 20-time Grammy Award winner Beyonce belted out the lyrics of the spiritual, “Precious Lord, Take My Hand,” that Ledisi originally performed in the actual movie portraying gospel legend, Mahalia Jackson in the Martin Luther King, Jr. biopic.

When asked by reporter, ET’s Kevin Frazier as to “why she’s not singing the song?,” Ledisi says:

I don’t have a clue — but I will say, what I’m excited about is that I had the pleasure of playing an iconic figure in ‘Selma,’ and the song, “Precious Lord, Take My Hand,” it’s been going on forever – starting with the queen Mahalia Jackson, the queen of soul Aretha Franklin, then I was able to portray and sing my version of the song; and now we have Beyonce — I mean, her generation will now know this song — so now i’m apart of history. I look at it like that, instead of looking at it as a negative. To me, it’s a great, GREAT honor to be apart of a legacy of a great song by Thomas Dorsey.

When Kevin asked John Legend about the topic at hand, he says:

We were actually approached by Beyonce. She wanted to do an intro to our performance and introduce us,” Legend told Kevin. You don’t really say no to Beyonce if she asks to perform with you.

And this is why we LOVE Ledisi here at SFPL and fully support her! That was the most intelligent and mature answer that we have ever heard from any celebrity.

Great statement Ledisi! And you will hit that Grammy stage!

Thoughts?

-Stay Fly!
