J. Cole’s forthcoming third studio album, ‘2014 Forest Hills Drive’ drops next Tuesday, but a new track from the album — ‘Fire Squad’— has leaked, and it is already causing some huge controversy in the urban world.
On ‘Fire Squad’, J. Cole calls out famous white rappers and singers: Eminem, Justin Timberlake and Iggy Azalea and compares them to the King of Rock n Roll, Elvis Presley, who has been accused of swagger jacking Black singers in the 50s.
He spits: “History repeats itself and that’s just how it goes / Same way that these rappers always bite each other’s flows / Same thing that my ni**a Elvis did with rock ‘n’ roll / Justin Timberlake, Eminem, and then Macklemore”

There was no better way for Rihanna and Eminem to end their highly successful Monster Tour than raising awareness for ALS and taking part in the Ice Bucket Challenge.
The music titans performed their sixth and final date for the Monster tour in Detroit last night (August 23). They ended the concert by accepting Dr Dre’s ALS Challenge. Em did his first as his co-headliner, Rihanna pour ice water on him. After shaking himself off, he nominated Rihanna to undertake hers on stage.

MONSTER TOUR: Rihanna Performs at MetLife Stadium
Rihanna and rapper Eminem shook MetLife Stadium with the performances of their hit songs last night.
Riri performed all her greatest hits at MetLife — Diamonds, Rude Boy, Stay, Love The Way You Lie, The Monster, Umbrella and We Found Love. Lesser known songs like Rockstar 101, ‘Numb’ and ‘Where Have You Been’ were also performed in New Jersey last night.
When performing ballads like Diamonds and Stay, Rihanna was vocally amazing. Her performance of Diamonds and Stay were breathtaking. But when hit the stage to perform her uptempo tracks like Rude Boy and Only Girl (In the World), it was quite poor.
Also Riri’s stage presence leaves much to be desired. She performs as if she is drugged a bit. Always sleepwalking.
