Now, as fans work to climb the ranks of hip-hop super celebrity with the option to record their own rhymes and win special awards from Minaj herself, Billboard is sharing an exclusive behind the scenes look with the app’s star.


Nicki Minaj: The Empire was developed with gaming heavyweight Glu Mobile, the company responsible for Kim Kardashian: HollywoodBritney Spears: American Dreamand Katy Perry Pop, and offers a world of gameplay options sure to excite Barbz and Boyz. In addition to the narrative gameplay where users can rock virtual stages, customize their crib and host parties, The Empire empowers players creative inklings with functions to write and record their own songs in-app. For those just starting out, there’s a “raplibs” (think Mad Libs) function that helps write lyrics for you.

DJ Mustard Releases ‘Cold Summer’ Album Feat. YG, Nicki Minaj, John Legend, Rick Ross & More

By | Music, News | No Comments

HustleTV Music News….  DJ Mustard has corralled hip-hop and R&B A-listers for his sophomore album Cold Summer (Roc Nation), the follow-up to his star-studded 2014 debut 10 Summers.

After releasing the Nicki Minaj and Jeremih-assisted jam “Don’t Hurt Me,” Mustard and his popular tagline — “Mustard on the beat, ho” — sprinkle the 13-track set. Cold Summer opens with the West Coast-flavored banger “Been a Long Time” featuring frequent collaborators and fellow California reps YG and Ty Dolla $ign (the three are set to collaborate on Mustard and YG’s forthcoming joint ‘tape 400 Summers).



Mustard keeps the headphone party bumping with club-friendly joints alongside Nipsey Hussle (“Ridin’ Around”), Migos’ Quavo (“Want Her”), Young Thug (“Party”), Meek Mill (the DMX-referencing “What These B-tches Want”). Perhaps the most surprising features come from R&B savants John Legend and James Fauntleroy who appear on the final track, the smooth farewell to summer called “Another Summer,” which also co-stars Rick Ross. His 10 Summers imprint signee Ella Maialso appears on “10,000 Hours.”  HustleTV

“This past year I’ve grown a lot, both as a producer and a DJ. You can hear it in my music,” says Mustard in a statement. “Touring oversees with Rihanna and seeing the fans I have all over the world inspired by me – it was motivation to release this album and not let them down.”

Beyonce, Rihanna Dominated MTV VMAs,

By | Featured, News, Recap | No Comments

HustleTV Entertainment News….  For the past dozen years, as MTV’s once-titanic grip upon music and pop culture has dwindled, the Video Music Awards have been its ace-in-the-hole — the annual ratings and water-cooler-moment jackpot that keep it anchored in a media world that continues to evolve far beyond television networks. And while the network has continued to hit those moments — which usually involve the names Kanye WestTaylor Swift or Miley Cyrus — the VMAs are unlikely ever to reach the gold standard of 13 years ago when it was Britney Spears and Madonna.

But in a year that’s been tumultuous even by this beleaguered network’s standards (see the Sumner Redstone/Phillippe Daumann drama), there’s opportunity. The medium that stole the thunder (and lunch) of MTV and the industries around it — the Internet and YouTube in particular, duh — has made music videos more relevant than they’ve been since the turn of the millennium. And whether it’s luck or changes in leadership or tactics, the 2016 VMAs were the first in recent memory that actually felt different.

The show’s format was only the most obvious change. It was less rigid and predictable — for an awards show, anyway — and, in a way that reflects the changing power dynamic in the music business, large segments were basically handed over to superstar artists. Rihanna performed four separate times and was presented with the Video Vanguard award by a be-tuxed — and possibly lovelorn — Drake, occupying approximately 30 minutes of the nearly three-hour-long show. Kanye West filled around 12 minutes with a stream-of-consciousness speech and a soft-porn new music video; Alicia Keys spoke and sang a poem inspired by Martin Luther King. Beyonce, suiting her imperial status, delivered a mind-blowing 15-minute medley that showed her peerless mastery of the live television moment. Diddy‘s relentless brand-dropping (he strategically mentioned Ciroc vodka, with which he has a 50-50 profit split, in both of his on-camera appearances) felt like a throwback.

The visuals and staging were as vivid as ever but woozier and more surreal: the show opened with a barrage of pink — Rihanna’s sterile, bathroom-esque opening number was followed by Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj performing in a set seemingly modeled on a West Village Soul Cycle, and that was just the first 15 minutes.
The tone of the show was different as well: While there was no shortage of the corny jokes that seem obligatory for awards shows, the familiar Caddyshack humor that was a hallmark of longtime president Van Toffler — who left MTV last September after 28 years at the network — was nowhere in sight, replaced by a social-media based sass that didn’t always work but at least was trying to look forward. HustleTV

Which leads to the biggest change of all: Whether by circumstance or design, this was unquestionably the blackest VMAs ever, and possibly the blackest mainstream awards show to date. The main “commentators” (basically a revolving set of hosts) — Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, former Saturday Night Live actor Jay Pharoah and comedian Nicole Byer — and the most prominent headlining performers were nearly all black or mixed-race. Few of the white nominees or usual suspects were in attendance — multiple nominees Adele and Justin Bieber sat the night out (and did not win any Moonmen), as did awards-show junkie Taylor Swift, who probably elected to stay home rather than risk another run-in with the West-Kardashians — or even got much mention or play during the show (save for a brief Kanye mention).

Not a single rock band performed and most of the white performers underwhelmed: While Nick Jonas delivered a solid show-piece of his hit “Bacon” in the diner across from Madison Square Garden, Britney Spears and G-Eazy were stuck with the thankless task of following Beyonce, and Halsey did her best to fill the charisma vacuum created by her duet partners The Chainsmokers, who were clearly out of their depth on the big stage. Olympic superswimmer Michael Phelps talked about “the motivation and inspiration I get from hip-hop” and explained that “when I made that face that ended up all over the Internet, I was in the zone with Future’s track ‘Stick Talk’ blaring in my headphones.”

Yet even in these racially charged times, the subject scarcely came up during the show itself. Beyonce made a big statement by walking the white carpet (!) with the mothers of police-violence victims Eric Garner, Michael Brown, Oscar Grant and Trayvon Martin, and part of her performance featured several dancers falling, bathed in pools of red light, as if shot. Yet much of the symbolism in her performance was focused on another long-oppressed demographic — females — and her acceptance speeches were directed at family and colleagues and teams. Kanye West had a seemingly poignant set-up about the horrifying gun violence in Chicago, but it just led to him making a point, as usual, about himself. There were multiple missed opportunities to grab the mic and Say Something. HustleTV

Maybe the network was leery of making those kinds of waves — although it’s not like these are artists who can be told what to do. Maybe, in a year that’s seen more far-reaching tumult hit closer to home than any since the ’60s, the performers figured people have had enough.

But for all the bad jokes and missed moments, and for all the inevitable post-show snark attacks on social media, at least this year’s VMAs suggest a different way forward. One speech along the lines of Jesse Williams’ Black Lives Matter broadsideduring the BET Awards, and we’d be talking about something besides Beyonce’s flawlessness and Kanye’s Olympic narcissism.

2016 MTV VMAs

Rihanna performs onstage during the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards at Madison Square Garden on Aug. 28, 2016 in New York City.

1. Rihanna goes monochrome to run through her hits “Don’t Stop The Music,” “We Found Love,” and “Don’t Stop The Music” for her first performance of the night.

Beyonce and Blue Ivy Carter attend the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards on Aug. 28, 2016 in New York City.

The trend-setting tot wore a $10,950 Mischka Aoki dress on the VMAs red carpet. “The Grand Royalle” dress with gold leatherette bodice, a high-low hem and 3D floral appliques is available at Bergdorf Goodman.

An Australian designer, Winnie Aoki is known for luxury materials and craftsmanship. She presents her collections on the runway at New York Kids Fashion Week. Her fairytale-like clothes have been worn by Blue Ivy before, as well as Suri Cruise and Penelope Scotland Disick. She started her label in 2009 when she couldn’t find clothes good enough for her first daughter, Mischka, after whom the label is named.

At the VMAs, Blue Ivy also wore a diamond tiara by jewelry designer Lorraine Schwartz adn pale pink high top sneakers by Giuseppe Zanotti.

Two other little girls who made an entrance with Beyonce were also dressed in Aoki’s designs, the Fairy Queen dress ($9200) and the Aurora dress ($2318).

MIschka Aoki is known as an haute couturier for children. A dress can take up to 300 hours to produce, with at least 8 seamstresses working on one. HustleTV

Drake presents Rihanna with the The Video Vanguard Award during the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards at Madison Square Garden on Aug. 28, 2016 in New York City.



Is there anything left to say about Beyoncé? Just when you thought Lemonade had taken you everywhere it could, Bey brings virtually the whole album to life with a show-stopping spectacle at the VMAs. She was a last-minute addition to the night’s performance list, but by the time she was done, jaws were all over the floor.

Beyonce opened with the first track from her visual album, “Pray You Catch Me,” which then led to “Hold Up,” “Sorry,” “Don’t Hurt Yourself,” and “Formation.” It was a masterfully-produced, expertly executed show that did justice to Lemonade, and then some. Really, it seemed like it was out of another world above the rest of the night’s acts.

We heard Kanye was scheduled to appear at the VMAs a few days ago, so we knew we were in for a trip. What we got was a Yeezy monologue that wasn’t quite as drop-what-you’re-doing climactic as last year’s “KANYE 2020” moment, but on-point nonetheless. He was real, and he was relatable.

Kanye brought up his Taylor Swift tiff, but only to emphasize more pressing issues, like violence and systematic racism in America. There was this touching anecdote:

So I was speaking at the Art Institute last year, and one kid came up to me and he said, “Three of my friends died, and I don’t know if I’m gonna be the next.” And you have to think, like, when you’re a senior and it’s the last month and you don’t feel like doing any more work. If you feel like you’re seeing people dying right next to you, you might feel like, “What’s the point?” Life could start to feel worthless in a way.

He then shouted out his inspirations (“Truman. Ford. Hughes. Disney. Jobs.”) and premiered the video for “Fade,” starring Teyana Taylor and Iman Shumpert.

You can read Ye’s whole speech here.

And let’s not forget Chance the Rapper’s reaction to Kanye shouting him out: HustleTV

Alicia Keys gave an incredible speech while presenting the moon man for Best Male Video. The show was on Aug. 28, the 53rd anniversary of Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream Speech.” In that spirit, she recited a beautiful poem, beginning with the line, “If war is holy and sex is obscene, then we got it twisted in this lucid dream,” and not ending without Keys belting into song.

Rihanna’s Career Comes to Life

Rihanna won the lifetime achievement Video Vanguard award (at only 28!) so it goes without saying she had a big night. The VMAs made sure she was properly honored, and this meant multiple Ri Ri performances, featuring songs from all over her career. She kicked off the show performing classics like “Please Don’t Stop the Music” and “We Found Love” and ended it with newer hits like “Work” after accepting the big prize.

Drake was late to the show and couldn’t accept his moon man for Best Rap Video on air, but boy did he do Rihanna’s trophy justice. Aubrey gave a fawning, sincere speech to present the Video Vanguard. At the end, it looked like he went in for a big kiss, but Rihanna wasn’t having it. HustleTV Entertainment News…. 



DJ Khaled Drops ‘Do You Mind’ Ft. Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown, Future, More

By | Music | No Comments

HustleTV Music News…. DJ Khaled’s ninth studio album Major Key will be available at midnight July 29. (See track list below). To get fans excited for the star-studded album, Khaled shared a new single, “Do You Mind” today (July 28). DJ Hustle

The sultry bedroom song samples Michael Sterling’s “Lovers and Friends,” which comes across in a romantic piano that crosses with a strong beat. Because Khaled isn’t satisfied with just one or two features on his singles aka “keys,” he tapped six names to join him on “Do You Mind.” Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown, Future, Jermih, Rick Ross and August Alsina all appear on the track (via SPIN).

Minaj starts things off. “Yo, he ain’t messin’ with no average trick, pop pop/ He got Nicki, he know dat he hit the jackpot,” she raps in the opening seconds of her verse. Brown and Jeremih combine their vocal strengths on the chorus. “Let me be the one/ Do you mind? Do you mind?/ Do you mind if I talk to you?/ Do you mind if I touch you there?” they sing together. Future comes in after the 3-minute mark with a passionate verse. HustleTV
