Thanks to VH1 and Palladia ?uestlove will be bring forth his new executive produced show called SoundClash. The idea for the show stemmed from Jamaican sound clashing he was exposed to growing up. For SoundClash ?uestlove has recruited likes of Ed Sheeran, Fall Out Boy, Sia and T.I. who will share the stage to perform striped down versions of their classics along with covers their favorite artists.

He explained that by allowing artists to cover song is “a serious form of showing where your roots come from.”

?uestlove believes music is changing, specifically hip-hop.

“You know, we as black people have to come to grips that hip-hop is a contagious culture. If you love something, you gotta set it free,” he said to TIME. “I will say that “Fancy,” above any song that I’ve ever heard or dealt with, is a game-changer in that fact that we’re truly going to have to come to grips with the fact that hip-hop has spread its wings.”

Nicki Minaj took to her Twitter today (July 23) to lightly discuss a controversial issue that many believe to be dead, while others live that sad truth everyday. The “Pills and Potions” rapper spoke on racism still existing in today’s world, but shortly after encouraged fans to keep their head up and aim for the best.

Minaj tweeted: “Racism is alive and well”, “Some people have to put in work. others get to cut corners. we see it but don’t say it. welcome to the real world.”, and ultimately, “Continue to strive for GREATNESS.”.

Although she denied the 2014 BET Award allegations, could this be another shot fired at Iggy Azalea?
