Chris Brown -- Hearing Had Zero to Do with Grammys

by TMZ
Staff

chris_brown_court_grammy.jpgChris Brown is not attending this year's Grammy Awards -- so the idea that he was in court yesterday to try and have the restraining order against him reduced just so he could go (and not risk running into Rihanna) is way off base ... this according to his rep.

As part of the Rihanna assault case, Brown's attorney asked the judge yesterday to reduce the "stay away" order against him to a "do not annoy" order. Doing so would have removed the part about Brown having to stay 50 yards away from RiRi.

Ultimately, while the judge again praised Brown for his progress, the ruling was put off until a later date because an attorney for Rihanna could not be reached.

As for the idea that this hearing has anything to do with Brown going to the Grammys ... Tammy Brook, a rep for Brown, tells TMZ, "This court date and the lifting of the restraining order is part of the planned ongoing legal proceedings. The date was scheduled months ago. Chris Brown is very thankful for his Grammy nominations, but due to scheduling conflicts, he will not be attending the Grammys."

In continuing this momentum, January 2011 has not yet passed and CODE RED is already 'painting the streets RED' with new material.

The Code Red team, consisting of Zj Rush, Blade, Chris Dymond, Dj Lank, Dj Skrible & CEO Master Lee; have wasted no time in hitting back the studio to create a barrage of new singles, riddims, remixes and mixed CDs for the New Year. The group will be celebrating its 10th year in the business this April with their staple anniversary event in Ocho Rios. That milestone event, plus the release of these high profile songs on their newly formed Code Red Records label, indicates clearly that they are poised to make this year the most significant one for them since they started the brand. Code Red Music Group CEO Master Lee states, "We have always been putting in the work, and with the start of the New Year, the work continues. We've never stopped growing and we have many new ventures on the horizon".

Out of the many projects launched in this first month, some of the key ones to note include:
- 'Celebrate by Voicemail' - a high energy party track featuring the recently passed on third member of Voicemail, Oneil Edwards. The song premiered world-wide on New Year's Eve.
- 'Japan Get Crazy by Mr. Vegas' - written and produced by Master Lee and Mr. Vegas exclusively for Japanese dancehall fans. This song tells the story of the artist’s experiences when performing in Japan.

Aidonia and Blak Ryno Make Peace

blak_ryno_aidonia_friends.jpgAs the famous American inventor and industrialist Henry Ford once said, "Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.” and that is the mindset that dancehall artiste Aidonia has adopted for 2011 despite musical differences with the Gaza boss over utterances he made in a recent radio interview.

Earlier this week the deejay known for his hard hitting lyrics extended the olive branch to former Gaza lieutenant Blak Ryno putting an end to the longstanding tension that existed between them. The peace initiative was orchestrated by a mutual friend who has been in dialog with both parties for some time now.

According to Aidonia, “Me and Ryno never really have anything but you know how it go more time, a man haffi just hold him own and do weh him haffi do. Ah positivity and upliftment me seh, so if me see a way how me can help some yutes then me ago do that.” Ryno concurred as he works assiduously to transform his career.

With this renewed friendship, members of both management team have hinted at the possibility of some collaborative projects in the future.

Meanwhile, Ryno fresh from his Bahamian stint and Aidonia from his European tour are expected to release a cluster of new singles in the weeks ahead.

The Jamaican star talks skin bleaching…

When black women stop straightening their hair and wearing wigs and weaves, when white women stop getting lip and butt injections and implants, when bald men stop getting hair transplants, and when people stop getting nose jobs and cosmetic surgery then I'll stop using the 'cakesoap' and we'll all live naturally ever after. Until then, f**k you all."

Out Everywhere January 25, 2011 through Don Corleon Records

protoje_7_year_itch_album.jpgLos Angeles - January 25th 2011- Reggae revolutionary Protoje releases his long-awaited debut album, "Seven Year Itch" on Don Corleon Records, January 25, 2011. The album comes after the success of several already released singles (all on the album), including hit "J.A." and lead single, "Rasta Love" featuring Ky-Mani Marley.

"Seven Year Itch" arrives to an anxious crowd who has come to know Protoje from his intimate performances in Jamaica's live music scene, to his phenomenal performances on the prestigious stages of Caribbean Fashion Week and Reggae Sumfest. Protoje has passed on opportunities to put his voice to many mainstream riddims, instead remaining focused on the art itself, perfecting his performance and writing the songs on "Seven Year Itch." The resulting album is sure to both inspire and enlighten Reggae admirers who long for the raw style revolutionized by artists in the 1960s, but with enough modern vibe to relate to a brand new century.

Protoje explains, "This album documents my journey since I started doing music and if it listened as a whole work it will give a clearer understanding you know, all the songs are connected in one way or another. I just ask for people to share this music once they like it, spread music spread love."

Lil Wayne Opens Up About His Time In Jail

lil_wayne_rollin_stones.jpgJudging by rapper Lil Wayne's latest interview, he mainly did three things while he was in prison last year! Weezy opens up to Rolling Stone about his time in jail and it looks like the New Orleans native focused on three things; he fought for his cookies, read the Bible and spent time in solitary confinement. Ouch!

Wayne spent eight months in jail last year for attempted criminal possession of a weapon. While in prison, Lil Wayne started a blog. With the help of online marketer Karen Civil, he created an outlet for his boredom by starting a blog called "WeezyThanxYou.com." In his first entry, Young Weezy wrote, "because of you Young Money is and will always be a movement."

So what does Lil Wayne, who started spitting rhymes the moment he found his freedom, have to say about those difficult months? Well first of all he had to fight just to keep his belongings! "We gamble for phone time. I'd take n!@#$^a's commissary: Lemme get them cookies, lemme get them chips, get that soup. They'd be like, 'Oh, we thought you were asleep.' Like you can't look inside my cell and see that I'm right there! We ain't got no doors!"

Rihanna Fuels Lesbian Rumors: Nicki Minaj is My "Sex Partner"

nicki_minaj_rihanna_couple_girlfriends_lesbian.jpgRihanna fueled rumors she’s been hitching up with gal pal Nick Minaj Thursday night after she joked that she and her frequent collaborator were “sex partners.”

After leaving dinner with her friends, paparazzi surrounded the “What’s My Name” singer, asking her if they were really more than just friends.

“You’re not really roommates with Nicki Minaj are you?” he asked Rihanna.

“No. We’re just sex partners!” Rihanna joked.

Lesbian rumors between the musical duo seemed to start last month when Minaj said in an interview that Rihanna was the “best fondler ever.” Later, the pair were spotted being cute together as they sent messages back and forth on Twitter.

After Minaj had knocked Rihanna for misspelling her name, Rihanna quipped back: "B***h don't u hear me askin what my OWN name is??? Lol! My bad, I'll make it up to u wink (sic).”

Meanwhile, Minaj hit back at rumors yesterday when she appeared on the Ryan Seacrest morning show, labeling the rumors as “really insane” and “hilarious.”

Nicki Minaj laughs off Rihanna rumours

By Lara Martin, US Correspondent

Nicki Minaj has laughed off reports that she and Rihanna are living together.

nicki_minaj_rihanna_rumour.jpgThe rapper told Ryan Seacrest's radio show, which airs weekday mornings on KIIS-FM, that some people didn't realise the pair were only joking when they had a Twitter conversation about sharing a home.

"We just shot the video for a song I have on the album called 'Fly'," she explained. "When I saw her I said, 'So, do you hear we're living together?' We started cracking up laughing. She was like, 'I can't believe people are this ridiculous!'"

The Pink Friday star went on to say that the "random rumour" prompted the singers to post a joke message online about their "new crib" earlier this week.

"The funny thing is some people still didn't realise we were joking," she continued. "People were like, 'Oh my God, you're so lucky! You and Rihanna living together!' You can't even be sarcastic anymore, it's hilarious!"

However, she admitted that there was always a "possibility" of the duo becoming housemates in the future. "She is a badass," she added. "You never know!"

Minaj previously described 'Fly' - which appears on her platinum debut Pink Friday - as an "empowering" collaboration between the pair, saying that it encourages women to "soar high in the face of adversity".

Johnny Wonder & Hapilos Celebrate A Great 2010 in Dancehall

hapilos_johnny_wonder.jpgLast year was an undeniably good one for the 21st/Hapilos International Digital Distribution company. After introducing what seemed to be a strange and even far-fetched idea to many in the Jamaican music industry - that of selling and properly marketing their music via the web (digitally) - Johnny Wonder, executive vice-president of the company, can now say the decision to do so was a excellent one.

"What 21st/Hapilos International managed to do was to re-introduce and for some, introduce the idea of properly selling music online to people across the world. In the age of technology we were happy to be at the forefront of the reggae/dancehall revolution and give our local producers the opportunity to not only gain a wider fan-base by having the music available and marketed online, but also the opportunity to gain financially from making music," says Wonder.

In 2010 alone, the US/Jamaican digital distribution company marketed and sold over 130 riddims and tracks. They include: the smash hit Clarks by Vybz Kartel ft Popcaan, Table Fi Table Riddim produced by Romeich, Chan Dizzy's single Nuh Strange Face produced by Russian, Buju Banton's Things A Come Up produced by Delly Ranks, Cr203's Dancehall EFX riddim, Mavado's Stulla produced by ZJ Chrome, I-Octane's Cyan Do Wi Nuttn produced by Russian, Seanizzle's One Day Riddim and more.

Head of Marketing for Pepsi Cola, Jamaica, Carlo Redwood explained that Jamaicans love music and in that regard partnering with the promoters of events that involve music is a natural step in that direction. “Globally, Pepsi has for a long time been involved in music. Now we are focused on getting involved at a local level,” he said.

Pepsi commands more than 90 per cent market share but according to Carlo Redwood, Head of Marketing for Pepsi Cola Jamaica, this initiative is all about being more aggressive in the local marketplace. “Our sales continue to be strong as market leaders but in this initiative we are using music to continue to drive sales,” he said.

According to Redwood, Pepsi will be heavily involved in music-based events in the New Year. “Come January you will see a marketing push associated with music and in February we will be a major sponsor of the Youth View Awards,” he said.

Banton Thanks Fans For Support During Drug Troubles

By contactmusic

buju_banton_free.jpgReggae star BUJU BANTON has publicly thanked his fans for standing by him throughout his "turbulent times" after he was imprisoned and hit with a string of drug charges last year (10).

The music veteran, real name Mark Myrie, went on trial in September (10), facing allegations including conspiracy to possess and intent to distribute cocaine following his arrest in December 2009, when he was reportedly caught attempting to buy drugs from an undercover police officer in Sarasota, Florida.

The case collapsed when jurors were unable to reach a verdict following three days of deliberations and he walked free from prison in November (10), after Bob Marley's son Stephen offered up his own house as a bail bond for his troubled pal.

Banton has remained quiet on his legal troubles since his release, but he has now broken his silence to pay tribute to his loyal devotees.

'Moment 4 Life' Video Teaser: Nicki Minaj and Drake Kissing

nicki_minaj_drake_kissing.jpgNicki Minaj has filmed "Moment 4 Life" music video with Drake, and several pictures have been unleashed via Hip-Hop Connection to reveal what to expect from the clip. Apparently playing a couple, the two Young Money rappers get intimate in the video, sharing laugh in one image.

They are seen leaning on each other for a kiss in another picture. The scene looks like a wedding with Minaj wearing a pink wig and what seems to be a white gown while holding a bouquet of flowers, while Drizzy sporting a tuxedo. Back in August 2010, they had stunned their fans when jokingly announcing marriage on Twitter.

Taken from Minaj's first studio album "Pink Friday", the song "is about 2 kids that grew up on the same block." Drizzy once explained, "They shared their dreams of making it as rappers. They laughed together, they cried together. One day they realize that their dreams have come to fruition. Though they know all things come to an end, they celebrate."

Almost at the same time the pictures hit the web, Nicki Minaj took the stage with Lil Wayne for NBC's "New Year's Eve with Carson Daly". She performed "Save Me", and Weezy treated revelers with "6'7"."
