Lil B Talks Jay Electronica, Charles Hamilton, Soulja Boy, And Secret Album [Pg. 2]

Fill us in, Based God.

This is a VIBE first: Look out for some music from Lil' B featuring Jay Electronica and Lupe Fiasco, coming real soon. No one knows about this. I got a text from Jay Electronica last night. It’s just a respect thing between us. I mean he’s such a dope emcee.

What did he text to you?

He just showed me love, and I sent my blessings back to him. Jay Electronica to me is one of the most original in the game right now. I love his creativity. And I’ma tell you who else I think is one of the most original in the game and that’s Charles Hamilton. I’m a just leave it at that.

It seems like Hamilton been going through some things, have you spoken to him lately?

I haven’t, but he hit me up on Twitter, and I definitely gave him my support. I like artists that are true to themselves and aren’t copying off anybody. I can’t even listen to certain rappers now because they got that same Drake flow. If it’s not you, stop doing it. I’m hearing a lot of people just copying. I love artists who take pride in being original.

I’ve noticed you seemed to have a big influence on Soulja Boy’s music.

Soulja Boy always been showing love. He is one of the realest people in the industry and coolest people in general. He’s a real honest and respectful dude, so I really got nothing but love for him, and I got his back on the music tip.

What’s behind the “30 Thousand 100 Million” music video you guys just released?

“30 Thousand 100 Million”... I freestyled that in one of my songs. But Soulja just took it to another level. He made the beat at his crib, and we laid it that night. I think they’re going to also premiere it on 106 & Park soon. That’s going to be my first TV look. I’m definitely excited about that.

Did you officially sign with SB yet?

As of right now, I’m an independent artist. Me and Soulja Boy are finishing up like the last parts of the deal that we’re doing together. Out of anybody in the game that’s who I want to work with business wise. I’m rocking with Soulja.

With that situation, there’s definitely a huge opportunity to take your movement to the masses.

Listen: I have a secret album that I’m working on with a private title which is going to be my mainstream album and the album that I use to break through. I have about three singles ready to go. It’s going to be big, big year in 2011. I’m swagged up heavily. Think about it like this, you see how Trey Songz made that turn around. Trey Songz back then is way different then the Trey Songz now, so think about that. I look at my situation the same way.

Would you say this secret album has a more universal sound?

My new album everybody will understand. You can’t deny it, people are going to have to like something on there. Right now, I have couple a cats doing beats for me. I’m releasing new videos on the regular still. I’m continuously building.

Do you still stand by your comments regarding doing something to Kanye West’s backdoor?

What’s funny is that before I made that comment, I forgot that he posted one of my videos on his blog. God bless Kanye. He posted “Swag OD,” the song I did with Soulja Boy. I just forgot about that. Bottom line is I really just want to work with him and do some production for him. No one on earth is doing what I’m doing and time will prevail. I ain’t going to rush nothing. But he knows I respect him and his artistic ability. One day it will happen, he know I got love for him.

On Friday (Dec. 14), McClurkin posted to his Facebook page again, sharing several photos of his destroyed car.

Nicki Minaj's Boyfriend Kenneth Petty Received 18 Violations During Prison Stint

Nicki Minaj's new boyfriend, Kenneth Petty has a very troubled past.

On Friday (Dec. 14), TMZ revealed court documents disclosing Petty's history of disciplinary actions while he was an inmate in New York for manslaughter from 2006 to 2013.

When he entered the correctional facility, he was reportedly written up for creating a disturbance. Later during his stint, he was hit with a slew of disciplinary actions following a series of violent actions that included fighting, making terroristic threats, and "disobeying a direct order."

In 2009, prison faculty placed him in solitary confinement for four months as part of being reprimanded for nine different violations. Petty lost privileges that included the usage of the inmate telephone service, recreational activity, and the prison canteen.

In addition to his prison violations, Petty is a convicted sex offender. At the age of 16, he was tried as an adult served a four-year sentence for attempted rape of a minor.

Petty, who hails from the same borough as Nicki, Queens, knew the platinum-selling rap star since she was a teenager. They dated for a short period years prior to reuniting.

Minaj posted various photos of her and Petty going on a vacation getaway earlier this month. Sources close to Minaj told the celebrity gossip website that the 36-year-old hip-hop artist is  "happier than she's been in years" with Petty.

Sandy Hook Elementary Evacuates After Bomb Threat On 6th Anniversary Of Mass Shooting

Sandy Hook Elementary School was reportedly forced to evacuate its students and administration on Friday (Dec. 14), after receiving a bomb threat, CNN reports. The incident occurred on the sixth anniversary of the school's tragic mass shooting.

Newtown, Connecticut Police Lt. Aaron Bahamonde stated that the threat didn't appear to be substantial, but they decided to  evacuate the facility as an extra precaution.

Bomb squads reportedly swept the school and surrounding area for explosive devices but did not discover anything on the property. They later concluded that there was no immediate threat. The school administration dismissed students and faculty for the rest of the day however, considering the previous incident.

As previously noted, Sandy Hook endured a horrific mass shooting on Dec. 14, 2012, in which 20-year-old Adam Lanza shot and killed 20 children between six and seven years old, as well as six adult, staff members.

Earlier this month, thousands of documents were released about Lanza that revealed his mental state and social status in the years leading up to the shooting.

The shooting is not believed to be in connection to the recent string of bomb scares around the nation that targeted major politicians including the former first families Barack and Michelle Obama and Bill and Hillary Clinton.
