  1. By Nadeska Alexis with reporting by Rya Backer Mac Miller is gearing up to drop his new Pink Slime EP with Pharrell after releasing the first single last week, and when MTV News caught up with Miller at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Tennessee, he explained that Skateboard P gets the credit for the project's title. The Pittsburgh rapper released the first Pink Slime single, "Onaroll," on June 5 and performed it for the first time at Bonnaroo just a few days later. Before hitting the stage, he opened up about the collaborative project, admitting that he was nervous to record with Pharrell at first. "Pharrell is a very creative person with everything he does," Mac said, detailing one of their recording sessions. "We did this one record called 'Dreams,' and he was like, 'I'ma rap on this.' So he goes outside for 20 minutes and he just comes back, gets in the booth and raps. I don't know what he did in those 20 minutes, but he just went out and came back in with no paper, no anything, and just had a verse ready." As far as the name of the project, that was Pharrell's brainchild as well. "It was his idea. I was at a loss for names," Mac admits. "I was on tour and I was talking to him and he's like, 'I got the name — it's Pink Slime.' I was like, 'That sounds tight. What the f--- is "pink slime"?' He's like, 'Pink slime is the fake meat they use at McDonald's,' and I was like, 'Cool, man.' " From there, the Blue Slide Park rapper got a little bit silly about the deeper meaning in the title. "The meaning is that there is so much filth and ammonia in the world and we're just speaking on how we need to clean up the environment," he joked. "The message is ... we pay for a Big Mac, maybe give me some good beef in there. It's really a political statement we're making."

  3. Alex Welsh via Fader By Miranda Johnson 2 Chainz, a once overlooked MC, is now receiving a well-deserved amount of shine. Still, most new fans aren't aware that 2 Chainz, formerly known as Tity Boi, has actually been in the rap game for the past 13 years. He encountered several dead-ends throughout his career, but he's spawned hits like Playaz Cirlce’s “Duffle Bag Boy” and was featured on some of Luda and Chingy’s biggest hits when he was signed to DTP. In his new Fader cover story, the ATL rapper opens up about his journey. 2 Chainz broke down the trials and tribulations of his journey to success. During the chat he answered any and all questions fans might have, covering his name change, solo deal, and even adjusting to his new found fame. Although the name change most certainly helped boost Tit to the top, many are wondering how exactly he concocted the name 2 Chainz to begin with. Well in the interview Chainz revealed that he retrofitted his new title as a loose homonym for “to change.” He also talked about his past and current label situations, revealing what steps he took to secure a spot at the top. After talking about his former deal with DTP 2 Chainz stated, “After that didn’t do nothing, I was like, Let me figure this sh-- the fu-- out. Let me go to work.” By work he meant releasing seven solo mixtapes in the last five years since “Duffle Bag Boy,” with each project gaining slightly more notoriety than the last. Last year’s Codeine Cowboy and T.R.U. REALigion became street favorites along with his classic “Spend It” which is now a Southern anthem. On his new found fame, Tit told Fader that although he is most certainly recognized more times than none, fans do not often run up on him. He joked that instead they tend to operate more on the shy side whispering “Is that 2 Chainz?!" It's been a long time coming but now Tauheed Epps aka 2 Chainz is most certainly in the lime light and by the looks of it he’s staying. He is currently on Drake’s Club Paradise Tour along with French Montana, Meek Mill, Waka Flocka Flame and J. Cole. Earlier this week the bunch performed a rainy show in New Jersey but please believe the rain didn’t stop the reign.

  5.

  6. Just when we thought no one would speak up. Drake's rep has issued a statement denying that his actions resulted in Chris Brown's injury, following a brief brawl a New York City nightclub, while Chris Brown had addressed the incident on Twitter and via a statement from his own rep. Meek Mill sent one coy tweet early this morning, playfully trying to distance himself from the drama, but when Roscoe Dash called him out for being involved in the fight, he responded more forcefully, telling him, “@Roscoedash you gotta chill b4 you b tweeting my name in some sh-- i wasn't even really in! Stay in ya lane!” Drake's rep issued a statement on his behalf, telling TMZ, "Drake did not participate in any wrongdoing of any kind last night at W.I.P. He was on his way out of the club when the altercation began. [Drake] did not engage in any activity which resulted in injury to person or damage to property." Chris Brown was the last to chime in, sending a tweet around 4pm, writing, "Me and @MeekMill ain't on that bulls---. Real respect Real...." and his rep told GossipCop.com, "Chris, [girlfriend] Karrueche [Tran] and his friends were victims of a brutal attack last night at WIP. They sustained several injuries. Chris and his party are cooperating with NY authorities who are pursuing this incident further." TMZ further reports that the fight broke out between the two camps after Brown and Meek Mill, who was at Drizzy's table, started "trash talking" each other. According to the TMZ source, Brown's face was hurt when Mill threw a bottle at him. Other sources told GossipCop.com that the incident went down around the same time as last call, at 3:50 a.m., when the two crews were partying along with Mary J. Blige, Ne-Yo and Fabolous. Right before Brown got hit in the face with the bottle, the eyewitness said Drake looked "pissed" and "serious." Once the bottle was thrown, by someone in Drake's camp — though the site does not specify Mill as the assailant — that's when things got ugly. For about 15 seconds, the two parties, made up of about 15 people each, began throwing glasses, bottles and metal ice containers at each other, with some people getting caught in the crossfire. The site also obtained a photo of Brown's bodyguard, Big Pat, who got a serious head injury during the scuffle. In the photo, Pat is lying on a stretcher with his bloody head bandaged. While GossipCop reported that neither Drake nor Brown ever hit each other, Brown did get a wound on his chin. Right after the incident, both parties left the club and then police officials and the club's bouncers cleared out the club. In addition to the two entourages partaking in the scuffle — which not only injured Brown, but also his bodyguard, Big Pat — one bystander was also injured during the altercation. TMZ reports that a 24-year-old Australian tourist, Hollie C., had been at the club when the incident occurred and was struck by a flying bottle. "Within a few moments of noticing glass being thrown around, I saw a glass bottle headed towards me, consequently hitting me in the head," she told the site. "I immediately started to bleed and proceeded to fall in and out of consciousness." She was brought to the hospital, where she received stitches. She has since filed a police report. "I had to take the subway home with no money or jacket," she added. "Nobody would even sit beside me. My friends were so scared because they did not know where I was."

  12. [img]http://moviesblog.mtv.com//wp-content/uploads/movies/2012/06/jOBS.jpg[/img] Okay, we get it already, [url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/person/208080/personmain.jhtml"]Ashton Kutcher[/url] is sort of the perfect casting choice for a young Steve Jobs. After he was cast in the upcoming Jobs biopic that's been [url="http://moviesblog.mtv.com/2012/05/21/ashton-kutcher-jobs-announce/"]appropriately titled "jOBS,"[/url] we've seen plenty of pictures pop up online comparing the "Two and a Half Men" star to a younger version of the Apple co-founder. We'll admit, it's hard to deny the striking resemblance. Now some photos from the Los Altos set of "jOBS" have hit the web, and it turns out that the crew has made great casting decisions across the board. Chief among them are Josh Gad as Apple's [i]other[/i] co-founder, Steve Wozniak; Ahna O'Reilly as Jobs' first serious girlfriend, Chris-Ann Brennan; Dermot Mulroney as the second Apple CEO, Mike Markkula and some unnamed actor as a very convincing Bill Gates. The shots of these stars on set show us that Kutcher isn't the only one who looks a heck of a lot like the person he is portraying. Well, maybe Gad needs to straighten his hair a little bit more. Currently filming in Jobs' childhood Los Altos, there's no word yet on when the indie will hit theaters. "jOBS" is being directed by "Swing Vote" helmer Joshua Michael Stern. The film will follow Jobs from "his early years as an impressionable youth and wayward hippie, through his initial successes and infamous ousting, to his storybook return and ultimate triumphs as a man who set out to change the world and did just that."

  13. By Gil Kaufman Lauryn Hill recently made headlines for failure to pay taxes, and now R. Kelly has been added to the list of stars in trouble with Uncle Sam. Kellz owes the IRS over $4.8 million in overdue taxes, stretching all the way back to 2007.A rep for the singer said, "R. Kelly is in the process of working everything out with the government and is confident that all his obligations will be satisfied." The breakdown of the alleged non-payments includes: $1,472,366.77 (2005), $710,520.51 (2006), $376,180.11 (2007), $1,122,694.90 (2008), $173,815.18 (2009) and $992,495.24 (2010). The total bill comes to $4,848,072.71. After taking some time off to recover from emergency throat surgery? last year, Kells is expected to make his music return later this month with his 11th studio album, Write Me Back. The lead single from the disc, "Share My Love," was released in February and a second song, "Feelin' Single" hit late last month. The disc is the follow-up to 2010's Love Letter, an ode to Kelly's favorite music from the 1950's and '60's. In December, Kelly shocked fans when he announced that he would be adding 32 chapters to his popular "Trapped in the Closet" series, and in March it was confirmed that the series would be aired on IFC later this year. Twenty-two chapters exist thus far in the soap opera series that begins with a one-night stand and weaves into an extended tale of sex and lies, starring Kelly's alter ego, Sylvester.

  15. [url="http://torrentfreak.com/images/oneddl.jpg"][img]http://torrentfreak.com/images/oneddl.jpg[/img][/url]With the rise and rise of cheap hosting with masses of available bandwidth and endless cloud storage, cyberlocker hosting sites have become the weapon of choice for many file-sharers. Of course, in January the cyberlocker market had a rude awakening in the form of the Megaupload raids, and ever since the release scene has been shuffling around and reorganizing. Several file-hosting sites decided to call it quits and with their demise many so-called indexing ‘release’ sites couldn’t find the strength to carry on. Some, however, such as the hugely popular Rlslog.net, carried on regardless but in the last 24 hours perhaps the biggest indexing/release site casualty of 2012 has been announced. OneDDL, a site that in one form or another has been around for the past seven years, has decided to call it quits. The announcement comes as quite a surprise, since only 24 hours ago the site was still posting popular US TV shows and movies. The fact that it did so regularly has not been lost on the studios. The site has operated two domains (OneDDL.com and OneDDL.eu) since Google started logging rightsholder takedown requests against the site in May 2011. During that time Google has received 544 takedowns, of which 356 came from NBC Universal. [img]http://torrentfreak.com/images/oneddlzenith.jpg[/img] Although OneDDL have offered no concrete information, between the lines of their shutdown statement reads a familiar story. “The legality of websites, such as ours, has always been a rather grey area. I had believed that this ambiguity would work to our advantage and originally, that is what lawyers told us (yes, we went to see lawyers),” says site owner ‘okone’. “Lately however, the landscape has changed, and it appears the grey is gradually becoming black and white, unfortunately not in our favour.” Okone continues by stating that the site always operated within the law by responding to takedown requests from copyright holders, but that even that couldn’t save the site. “For some people, this is simply not enough,” he adds. When contacted by TorrentFreak, okone would not be drawn on the exact reasons for the shutdown. As usual though, the Internet rumor mill is churning with stories of the site being “under investigation” and threats from US entertainment companies and their UK proxies. We have been unable to confirm any of the claims. What seems completely certain is that from a downloading perspective OneDDL is no more. That has saddened the site’s considerable userbase – Alexa has OneDDL ranked as the 4,419th most popular site in the world – but perhaps inevitably the main [url="http://www.oneddl.eu/#comment-557002102"]discussion point[/url] in the site’s goodbye statement has quickly turned from farewells into where to find OneDDL alternatives.

  18. Meeting over! As a sidenote, I'm an SME: a Subject Matter Expert... news to me!

  19. Were Drake and Chris Brown really sparring over Rihanna last night? The two got into a scuffle at a New York City club on Wednesday that ended with the NYPD showing up around 4am. As usual, Chris Brown took to Twitter in a moment of reckless abandon, rattling off a few details about the incident, including a photo of his injury, only to delete it minutes later. But was it all over Rihanna? Most signs point to yes. Various reports paint this picture: Chris Brown sent a bottle of champagne over to Drake’s table, but eventually the YMCMB rapper made his way over to Brown and they got into an argument that ended with Rih’s ex being punched in the face and hit with a bottle. Despite Chris Brown’s tweets, there’s no confirmation that Drake actually tossed the bottle, but tensions have been building here for awhile. MMG rapper Meek Mill was also named in the incident for reportedly instigating the fight, and his tweet this morning, "It wasn't me.... (shaggy voice) lol” doesn't do anything to convince us otherwise. Last month, Meek, who’s hung out with Rihanna in NYC over the past few weeks (they hit the strip club for his birthday and she shared pics via Instagram) threw some jabs on Twitter that drew eyes to their relationship. “U took me off ya song cause she let me watch da throne! #dreamsandnightmares," he wrote, alluding that Chris Brown had removed him from his upcoming LP after a fling with Rihanna. Brown’s response? "She's a dream chaser! There are alot of dreamers so she'll be running forever!" (a play on Meek's mixtape name). It didn’t end without a little shot from Drake though, who added, "Oh that's your ho? That's our ho too. Lol" and "We get gyal eeeeaasy." Meek Mill maintains that he has a ‘girl at home’ but that hasn’t stopped rumors that he’s hooked up with Rihanna. As for Drake, after admitting that they had a brief romance a couple years back, he had Rihanna have remained close.

  20. [img]http://moviesblog.mtv.com//wp-content/uploads/movies/2012/06/Bill-Murray-Ghostbusters.jpg[/img] We hoped when [url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/person/91861/personmain.jhtml"]Bill Murray[/url] appeared on [url="http://www.cbs.com/late_night/late_show/video/?pid=h3ulbnHOI4oDMYRfTeboxXOqmjo8qA_r"]"The Late Show with David Letterman"[/url] earlier in the week that he might have something important to say about "Ghostbusters 3," but the funnyman didn't throw us much of a bone about the possible horror-comedy. When host Dave asked about the film, which mastermind Dan Aykroyd has been trying to get off the ground for some time now, Murray had this to say: "That's about all they want to know at Cannes, too... But, um... They just don't have a really good script. It's hard. Even the second 'Ghostbusters' wasn't as much fun for me as the first one. It's hard to make a sequel. That first one was really funny. It was just so darn funny, it's hard for me... I always drag my feet on it, but you know, we'll try again." Please don't tell us this is stuck in development hell forever, Bill. Are you tired of the vague "Ghostbusters 3" chatter, or are you still hanging onto hope that the supernatural-fighting trio will reunite once more? Mull that question over and keep reading for more of this week’s Horror Bites. [b]Supernatural Chiller 'Sinister' Haunts Home Movies in New Trailer[/b] [url="http://www.dreadcentral.com/news/56439/world-premiere-official-trailer-sinister"]Dread Central[/url] has the trailer for the world premiere of "Sinister," starring Ethan Hawke as a thoroughly spooked dad. The film — which releases in theaters during the Halloween season — follows a family coping with the discovery of a disturbing set of home movies. Hawke plays a novelist who tries to solve the crime — and is that "Law & Order's" Vincent D'Onofrio as a bearded occult specialist helping him? The supernatural chills come from the producer of "Paranormal Activity" and the writer-director of "The Exorcism of Emily Rose" on October 5. [b]The History of Troubled Zombie Epic 'World War Z'[/b] In case you're wondering what happened to that adaptation of Max Brooks' zombie opus "World War Z" starring Brad Pitt, [url="http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/brad-pitt-world-war-z-production-nightmare-336422"]THR[/url] has a few details to help fill in the blanks. Production was rocky for the apocalyptic epic, which was set to release this December, but has since been pushed to June 2013. One inside source claims the project was a "nightmare from top to bottom" — and we don't mean the kind of undead ordeal horror fans love. Multiple sources told THR that "World War Z" became "a seemingly headless enterprise driven by conflicts." Read the full scoop on their website. Does the drama concern you where the finished product is concerned, or make you more anxious to see what the fuss was all about? [b]Clive Barker's 'Nightbreed' Headed to Blu-ray Soon![/b] Fans of famed horror author Clive Barker can rejoice: his "Nightbreed" will be headed to Blu-ray soon (the right cut, even!). The 1990 movie written and directed by Barker — starring "Cosmopolis" director David Cronenberg as a creepy masked doctor — had had a long and troubled history. The studio forced various edits and re-shoots to create a more marketable effort, which resulted in a fascinating creature feature that looked great, but felt underdeveloped and out of synch. Later, the original work prints were discovered, pieced together, and dubbed The Cabal Cut. Since then, Barker has been trying to give the more cohesive version a proper release, and production company Morgan Creek has finally given him permission to move forward with his efforts. Head to [url="https://twitter.com/#!/RealCliveBarker"]Clive's Twitter page[/url] to see what the author had to say, and let us know if you'll be picking up a high-def copy of Cronenberg's best role ever. [b]Real-Life Crime-Inspired Tale 'Devil's Knot' Adds Three to Cast[/b] [url="http://www.deadline.com/2012/06/devils-knot-adds-trio-to-cast/"]Deadline[/url] reports that Collette Wolfe ("Young Adult") and Kris Polaha ("Ringer") are joining the cast of Atom Egoyan's drama about the West Memphis Three, while "Glee's" Justin Castor is considering a role. Polaha will play public defender Val Price, Wolfe will play assistant Glori Shettles, and Castor is in talks to play Jason Baldwin, one of the West Memphis Three. Colin Firth, Mireille Enos and Reese Witherspoon all star in the movie about the young men who were wrongly accused of murder, devil worship, and ritualistic sacrifice. They were recently freed from prison, where they spent 18 years in lockdown. [b]Art House Director Takes on Vampire Love Story with 'Fright Night' Star[/b] "Fright Night" star Anton Yelchin [url="http://www.dreadcentral.com/news/56387/anton-yelchin-out-prove-there-are-only-lovers-left-alive"]will appear[/url] alongside Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska, and John Hurt in Jim Jarmusch's "Only Lovers Left Alive." It's a vamp tale about star-crossed lovers set to film this summer. We don't know much about Yelchin's role yet, but we're assuming he's one half of the lovelorn couple, possibly paired with Wasikowska. The "Dead Man" director is an unlikely choice for a vampire love story, but that's what makes it so exciting and full of potential. Do you have room in your life for an intelligent and beautiful bloodsucker story, or are you drained of all enthusiasm for vampires?

  21. Music News By Rob Markman Over ten years later and rap fans are still intrigued by Jay-Z and Nas epic rap battle. The two rap legends have clearly moved past their beef, but an old wound seemingly opened earlier this month after a video titled "Nas Hanging Jay-Z" popped up on YouTube, giving a behind-the-scenes look at the over-the-top stunt God's Son had planned for Hot 97's 2002 Summer Jam concert. The story goes that Nas plotted to perform a mock lynching of his then-rival Jay-Z onstage, but these days, the Queens, New York, rap legend does not want to feed into the negativity. "I really don't even want to acknowledge it," Nas told MTV News on Tuesday. "Everybody's in a different place. I don't even want to acknowledge it. I can't acknowledge that. Jay's my man, and that's that, that's all I'm gonna say." You can imagine Nas' difficulty with the subject considering he and Hov buried the hatchet years ago, but back in 2002, things were rocky, to say the least. A year after Jay-Z debuted his Mobb Deep and Nas dis track "Takeover," Nas aimed to return the favor with an attack of his own on Hot 97's storied Summer Jam stage. Things didn't work out as planned: Once the radio station caught wind of Nas' intentions, it put constraints on his performance and he pulled out of the show. The recently unearthed video documented the creation of an animatronic Jay-Z figure that Nas wanted to hang and the gallows from which he planned to hang the figure. Nas did not appear in the clip, but it was edited with his 2001 track "What Goes Around" playing in the background. It was the hottest story in rap at the time, but 10 years later, it comes off as a moot point. In 2005, Nas and Jay-Z squashed their beef onstage at Power 105.1's Power House concert in New Jersey, and then a year later, God's Son signed to Def Jam Records, where Jay held a position as label president. The two have since collaborated on a number of songs, including "Success," "Black President" and Ludacris' "I Do It for Hip-Hop." Should Nas acknowledge the recently unearthed video?

  22. A lot has happened since the days of [url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/person/30357/personmain.jhtml"]Vanilla Ice[/url] and "Ice Ice Baby." Parachute pants went out of style, most people don't bleach single streaks in their hair, and Vanilla Ice doesn't get quite as many endorsement deals as he used to. That's why Robert Van Winkle, as he's known now, is hosting a fire sale to get rid of all the extra merchandise that he's amassed over the years. Everything must go, and he stars in this brand new video commercial to tell you all about it. [img]http://mtv.mtvnimages.com/uri/mgid:uma:video:mtv.com:791334?width=512&height=320[/img] [ video unavailable on this device ] The sale happens to be taking place right around the same time that Vanilla Ice is starring in the new [url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/person/55545/personmain.jhtml"]Adam Sandler[/url]-[url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/person/446132/personmain.jhtml"]Andy Samberg[/url] film, "[url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/movie/473569/moviemain.jhtml"]That's My Boy[/url]."

  23. [img]http://moviesblog.mtv.com//wp-content/uploads/movies/2012/06/Will-Smith-Wild-Wild-West.jpg[/img] Not so long ago, [url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/person/100683/personmain.jhtml"]Quentin Tarantino[/url] was dreaming up his ideal cast for his then-upcoming Southern "[url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/movie/476781/moviemain.jhtml"]Django Unchained[/url]." His tale of a freed slaved searching for his still captive wife was sure to drum up controversy, so a recognizable star was needed for the title role to ground the premise. Tarantino's first choice was reportedly none other than mega-star [url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/person/58720/personmain.jhtml"]Will Smith[/url]. The role would have been Smith's most controversial to date, so it didn't exactly come as a surprise when the actor passed on it. But in a new interview with [url="http://www.empireonline.com/news/story.asp?nid=34104"][i]Empire[/i][/url] (via [url="http://blogs.indiewire.com/theplaylist/will-smiths-not-that-interested-in-i-am-legend-2-explains-why-he-bailed-on-django-unchained-20120613#"]The Playlist[/url]), Smith opened up about why he turned down the role of Django, ultimately allowing [url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/person/21681/personmain.jhtml"]Jamie Foxx[/url] to step in. Learn more after the jump! For Smith, the decision came down to timing. According to the actor, "Men In Black 3" got in the way of making "Django Unchained," which Smith complimented for its script. "I came really close, it was one of the most amazing screenplays I had ever ever seen," said Smith about Tarantino's screenplay. "I was in the middle of 'Men In Black 3' and [Tarantino] was ready to go, and I just couldn't sit with him and get through the issues, so I didn't want to hold him up. That thing's going to be ridiculous. It is a genius screenplay." As fun as it would have been to see Smith really move outside his comfort zone, the two trailers we've seen so far seem to indicate that Foxx is really going for broke on this one.

  25. [img]http://moviesblog.mtv.com//wp-content/uploads/movies/2012/06/pi.jpg[/img] The first clip from [url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/person/142466/personmain.jhtml"]Ang Lee[/url]'s upcoming feature, "[url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/movie/420082/moviemain.jhtml"]Life of Pi[/url]," has made its way online. Though the snippet is only 10 seconds long, it's the first we've seen of the flick so far and leaves a great first impression. What it seems to show is one of the first interactions the title character Pi ([url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/person/1131649/personmain.jhtml"]Suraj Sharma[/url]) has with the tiger, Richard Parker, when he realizes he is stranded on a boat with the beast. It definitely doesn't seem like that tiny boat is large enough for the two of them. Just what will Pi do when he finds out that there's also a hyena, a zebra and an orangutan on board? This clip, as well as four marketing banners like the one above, can all be found on [url="http://www.lifeofpimovie.com/"]"Life of Pi's" official website[/url]. There's also a tease of the score used in the movie, which seems like a perfect fit for the surreal story. This is Sharma's [url="http://moviesblog.mtv.com/2010/10/26/ang-lee-life-of-pi-suraj-sharma/"]first film role[/url], and it's hard to judge his performance from the one shot of his terrified face. But the effects Lee is using for this movie look fantastic. When a tiger is half of the main cast of the movie, there's some obvious concern that the flick will look corny or not work, but this first look at "Life of Pi" makes it seem like Lee has succeeded at making us a fantastic visual treat. "Life of Pi" hits theaters on November 21. [i]What did you think of the first clip from "Life of Pi"?
