10 Songs You Didn’t Know Were Written by The Dream

TheSource Feed - 9 hours 31 min ago

The-Dream has been the go-to guy behind-the-scenes of the R&B game for well over a decade. He has penned songs for the likes of Beyonce, Janet Jackson, Mariah Carey, Rihanna, Mary J. Blige and many more prominent singers. It’s general music knowledge that The Dream is behind Riri’s “Umbrella”, Bey’s “Single Ladies”, and J. Holiday’s “Bed”, but The Source is going to celebrate his birthday today by listing 10 songs that you wouldn’t even guess he he has writing credit for.

1. “Cheetah Love” by the Cheetah Girls

The Cheetah Girls installments are memorable for their catchy songs that promote unity and girl power. But who would have known that The Dream was behind the song “Cheetah Love” alongside his creative brother Tricky Stewart.

2. “Girlfriend” by Bow Wow and Omarion

It’s no denying that Bow and O had the hits back in the day. They released a collaborative album called Face Off in 2007 that spawned the single “Girlfriend”. The single debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 at number 82 and peaked at number 33. Guess who is a credited songwriter on this beloved throwback? The birthday boy!

3. “Jam (Turn It Up)” by Kim Kardashian

Remember that time Kim attempted to pursue a music career and dropped only one song? Well, that one song was written by The Dream. I know what you’re thinking, but money talks! Go collect them coins Dream.

4. “Moving Mountains” by Usher

One of Usher’s most successful ballads was not only co-written by The Dream, but he also co-produced it.

5. “Suffocate” by J. Holiday

By the sounds of the catchy hook and repition, you can safely assume that The Dream wrote J. Holiday’s “Bed”. But did you know he also wrote “Suffocate”?

6. “Fashion Killa” by ASAP Rocky

When you come across this song on the list you probably won’t be surprised that The Dream was behind this. The repetitive, catchy “Her pistol go ‘bang-bang, boom-boom, pop-pop,” is the signature that gives it away.

7. “Heaven” by JAY-Z featuring Justin Timberlake

If you need a measurement of how long The Dream’s money is, or how influential he is, he’s out here writing hooks for Justin Timberlake. That is all.

8. “No Church in the Wild” by JAY-Z and Kanye West

The recipe for a masterpiece is Hov, Ye, Dream, James Brown, the guitarist of Roxy Music, and five more musicians. Apparently Frank Ocean took the lead vocals, but The Dream also contributed some unaccredited ones.

9. “Coffee Shop” by Yung Joc

Before the Love and Hip Hop shenanigans people used to actually listen to Yung Joc. The Dream has songwriting credit for this song, and if you listen closely, you can hear his unaccredited vocals on the hook.

10. “Wamp Wamp (What It Do) by Clipse featuring Slim Thug

Before pursuing a solo career, Pusha T was half of the group Clipse with his brother, No Malice. Their song “Wamp Wamp (What It Do)” was produced by The Neptunes and co-written by The-Dream.

Trump Vows To “Totally Destroy North Korea” If Threatened

TheSource Feed - 13 hours 28 min ago

Donald Trump has used his first address to the UN General Assembly to make clear that the US may have no choice but to “totally destroy” North Korea.

With North Korean diplomats sitting just yards from him, Mr Trump said he will have no option to resort to such actions if Pyongyang does not halt the development of its nuclear weapons programme.

In perhaps the most striking piece of sabre-rattling yet, Mr Trump said that unless the regime of leader Kim Jong-un backed down, “we will have no choice than to totally destroy North Korea”.

In a reference to Mr Kim and a tweet he had sent at the weekend, the US President claimed the North Korean leader appeared to determined to choose a path of self-destruction.

“Rocket man is on a suicide mission for himself and his regime,” he said.

He said North Korea’s pursuit of nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles “threatens the entire world with unthinkable cost of human life.”

In what may have been a veiled prod at China, the North’s major trading partner, Mr Trump said: “It is an outrage that some nations would not only trade with such a regime but would arm, supply and financially support a country that imperils the world with nuclear conflict.”

In a speech that appeared to be aimed as much at middle America as at the world leaders listening to him, Mr Trump spent much of his focus on the issue of North Korea’s nuclear weapons programme – something his predecessor, Barack Obama, warned would be likely to be his toughest foreign policy challenge.

He said Pyongyang’s increased testing of intercontinental missiles and nuclear payloads, “threatens the entire world with unthinkable loss of life”.

“If the righteous many don’t confront the wicked few, then evil will triumph,” he said as he called the Kim regime “depraved” and detailed several egregious human rights violations including the death of 22-year-old American college student Otto Warmbier.

Shortly before Trump’s speech, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres appealed from the General Assembly lectern for statesmanship to avoid war with North Korea.

“We must not sleepwalk our way into war,” said Guterres, the former prime minister of Portugal.

DMX is Clean and Sober But Staying in Rehab

TheSource Feed - 13 hours 38 min ago

DMX has been responding well to rehab according to his lawyer, Murray Richman. Richman says X has put on a solid 40lbs since starting the program in August. He reassures that the legendary rapper is “back to being human again”.

Although the program is almost complete, Richman suggests for X to stay for 30 more days since its had a positive effect on the emcee. X is even granted day visits with a friend to a nearby town.

After hitting a series of bad breaks from his erratic performance at the Ruff Ryders Tour, his federal arrest on tax evasions, and landing house arrest, it’s good to hear that the rap icon is doing well. Maybe we can get the trap music he hinted at sooner than later.

JAY-Z and Kanye West Reportedly Plan to Meet Face-to-Face to Squash Beef

TheSource Feed - 14 hours 14 sec ago

Things have not been peaches and cream between JAY-Z and Kanye West for a while. There’s no telling how long the feud has been going on, but it became apparent that there was trouble in paradise after Ye went on a rant during his Saint Pablo Tour and came for Beyonce and Blue Ivy, and you know Hov is a geek about his family.

So one thing led to another and Ye parted ways from Tidal, and hit them with a $3.5 million lawsuit. Hov told his side of the story during the Rap Radar interview with Elliot Wilson, but there hasn’t been much chatter about the beef until now.

TMZ reports that Hov and Ye are scheduled to meet face-to-face with intentions to bury the hatchet. As one source put it, “The Generals [Kanye and Jay] have to meet face-to-face. When that happens, the resolving the money dispute is a piece of cake.”

Two Black Men Killed In Racially Motivated Murder In Louisiana

TheSource Feed - Tue, 09/19/2017 - 8:36pm

A 23-year-old white man was arrested on Tuesday and will be charged with murder in the shooting deaths of two black men in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, authorities said.

Kenneth Gleason is accused of carrying out the killings on Sept. 12 and Sept. 14. Local media reported that police have said the killings may be racially motivated, but officials would not confirm that.

The suspect was charged on Tuesday with two counts of first degree murder in the killings of Bruce Cofield and Donald Smart, as well as two counts of attempted first degree murder in an unrelated shooting.

In both incidents a motorist opened fire on a pedestrian, said Parish of East Baton Rouge District Attorney Hillar Moore. Once the victims were on the ground, Moore said, the assailant got out of the car and shot them again several times.

Moore said prosecutors may seek the death penalty for Gleason if he is convicted.

But Moore said that even if the killings were determined to be racially motivated, it was unlikely Gleason would also face hate crime charges.

“You can’t kill him twice,” Moore told reporters at a news conference on Tuesday, saying such a charge was unnecessary in a death penalty case.

Baton Rouge Police spokesman Sergeant L’Jean McKneely would not say if the killings were racially motivated, but added, “We’re not completely closed off to that.”

Interim Baton Rouge Police Chief Jonny Dunnam noted the city has suffered racial turmoil in the past year or so.

In July 2016, a 37-year-old black man, Alton Sterling, was killed while scuffling with two police officers outside a convenience store. In May, the two officers were spared federal charges but still face a state investigation.

Twelve days after Sterling’s death, a 29-year-old black man opened fire on Baton Rouge police, killing three officers before being fatally shot himself.

If police had not been able to bring “a swift conclusion” to last week’s killings, Dunnam said, “(Gleason) could have potentially created a tear in the fabric that holds this community together.”

McKneely would not comment when asked about reports that Nazi and satanic literature had been at the house where Gleason lived with parents outside Baton Rouge.

Gleason was detained on Saturday by a Baton Rouge police officer who recognized him from the description of the shooter driving a red car. Had Gleason not been arrested, said Dunnam, “this killer probably would have killed again.”

Gleason will also be charged with shooting into an occupied residence near his parents’ house. Moore said the homeowners were black. No one was injured in that Sept. 11 incident, he said.

Watch “Dark Skin” Video by Toronto’s Jayd Ink

TheSource Feed - Tue, 09/19/2017 - 7:18pm

Toronto artist Jayd Ink is the one to watch out for. Her chic aesthetic is inviting but her approach to song writing is downright wicked. Her latest song “Dark Skin” is a bold statement: float over trap beats with little regard to sub-genre because she raps when she wants and sings when she wants. The song and the video send out a positive message to strong people all around the world and encourages them to love themselves for who they are which is nothing less than beautiful.

The 88everything-directed video matches the high quality single. It is cinematic and clean whilst showing everyday life things going on in the Greater Toronto Area, Galloway reference intact. The look of the video has a hint of golden-era T-Dot rap: think Maestro, Choclair or say Bakardi Slang.

Take in the Kaui-produced track below.

Nicki Minaj Promises Her Next Move is Going to be a “Billion Times More Epic Than Anything ‘Anaconda’ Could Have Delivered”

TheSource Feed - Tue, 09/19/2017 - 6:49pm

Nicki Minaj is long overdue for a new album. Meanwhile, she’s been doing features with almost everybody and dropping diss tracks, we’ve been bumping The Pinkprint since 2014. Although it may look like she’s out here just flaunting her good looks, she has been hard at work. “Some days I’ll go into the studio at six in the morning, some days I won’t come out until six in the morning,” Nicki told DAZED.

Nicki has had a great career as the reigning Queen of Rap, and she claims that it’s only going to get better.

This era will be a billion times more epic than anything ‘Anaconda’ could have delivered. I think this era will definitely be the most memorable and the most impactful of my career yet.

As far as any details of her forthcoming album like the title, features, or a release date she kept it tightly under wraps. But she had us feeling like she was about to channel her old self and deliver us them bars like we know she could.

I’ve made it my business with this album to not even put a date or a deadline on it. I can’t say if I’m fifty-per-cent, eighty-per-cent or ten-per-cent done, because I don’t know. Tomorrow, I might walk into the studio and decide that I don’t like anything I’ve done in the last six months. Or, tomorrow I might walk in and feel like the whole album is done. There’s so much beauty in not knowing. I just want to go in the studio and create like I used to, before there were any expectations. You know? When I was just having fun, working on my mixtapes, going in and creating… writing my little life.

‘Everybody Black’ : A Peek At Old Hollywood’s Treatment Towards POC

TheSource Feed - Tue, 09/19/2017 - 3:27pm

Imagine working cheek to cheek with some of H-wood’s biggest stars, being nominated and winning an academy award, and being lucky enough to be the first to do it.

Now imagine doing your business on a toilet designated for ‘Colored’s Only’ while on set, because despite your glittering stardom, segregation was still a thing.

Welcome to Old Hollywood. Minority stars who shined on the black and white screen endured treatment that would make the most politically incorrect behavior of 2017 seem like a cakewalk.

In 1939, Gone With The Wind was a block buster hit thanks to Hattie McDaniel. Her huge personality and on screen persona out-shined her white costars landing her an Academy Award for her role. However on the night of the ceremony, which took place at a “whites-only” hotel in L.A., McDaniel got was only allowed in after her agent  pulled a few strings. Once there she could not sit at the table with her co-stars, so she sat separately.

*Cues Solange’s A Seat At The Table*

Behavior like this in Old Hollywood was common in the 1930–1950s on and off the screen.

Actress Kim Novak and singer Sammy Davis Jr. had grown a liking to one another. There romance posed only one problem. She was a white actress and he was a black singer. Getting your swirl-on could cost you your life back then and for Davis it almost did. Producer Harry Cohen had the mob put a hit on him threatening to have him killed if the affair with Novak continued. Davis backed down from the relationship for his own safety.

Mega star Lena Horne, made a point to secretly marry her Caucasian husband in Europe so not to upset her producers. All the while Horne, who emerged on the scene “clouted up” thanks to her affluent father, became a “sex-symbol” among the black men who had not seen an actress like Horne on-screen before. How was she able to deviate away from the “mammy” and “maid” typecasting? By her father’s request to never be casted in such roles. As a result she faced a lot of controversy in her career off-screen for being “boujie” as described by other Black actors and actresses.

Clearly the politics and culture of Hollywood isn’t particularly fair for POC. At this year’s 69th Primetime Emmy Awards, actress and creator of Insecure, Issa Rae, was interviewed by the press in regards to who she would like to see go home with the golden statue of honor. In two words she summed up the disposition of hope many African Americans have after facing years of hardships in media and other industries. “Everybody Black.”

Judge Blocks Airing of Bobbi Kristina Biopic

TheSource Feed - Tue, 09/19/2017 - 1:29pm

Biopics have grown fairly popular in Hollywood. There have been some good ones, and a few bad ones but the biopics are here to stay. The latest biopic in production was Bobbi Kristina, a biopic about the tragic death of Bobbi Kristina Brown.

Bobby Brown made legal actions to stop the television biopic of his daughter because it falsely portrays him as a drug using, neglectful, abusive father. Bobby’s suit requests to permanently stop the making of the film and claims the production company did not get his permission or the permission of his daughter’s estate to use their likenesses in a film. A Manahattan federal job temporarily stopped the airing of the biopic and ordered both parties to court to discuss the matter further.

Bobbi Kristina was 22-years-old when she was found unconscious in a bathtub by her then boyfriend Nick Gordon in January 2015. She was pronounced dead in July, and the cause of death remained unclear. The parties are scheduled to appear in court Sept. 29.

Kyrie Irving Says He Doesn’t Care About LeBron’s Feelings On “First Take”

TheSource Feed - Tue, 09/19/2017 - 12:13pm

Kyrie Irving is a young dude in the NBA living out his dreams and doing what he said he would as a freshman at Duke University with Coach K. He’s had his stumbles and his major points as a Cleveland Cavalier. Now, that he’s officially moved on to bigger and better things with the Boston Celtics he hasn’t been very quiet on his status with LeBron James. He visited “First Take” with Stephen A. Smith today and of course they lit him up with various questions about his downfalls in Cleveland, his future in Boston and the main issue: his problems with LBJ.

“I don’t think you owe anything to another person in terms of figuring out what you want to do with your life. It’s not anything personal, I’m not here to tirade anybody or to go at any particular person or the organization because I have nothing but love for Cleveland. I have nothing but love for the time I spent there. It’s nothing about that. There comes a time where you mature as an individual, it’s time to make that decision, and there is no looking back from that standpoint. There is no time to figure out how to save somebody’s feelings when ultimately you have to be selfish in figuring out what you want to do. It wasn’t about me not wanting to win. It wasn’t about that.

I want to be extremely, extremely happy, like, in perfecting my craft. And that was the only intent that I had in all of this.”

Smith asked Irving if he mentioned the trade to LeBron, Irving said, “No. Why would I have to?” Smith later asked “If you don’t speak to somebody about it, they might take it personally. Do you care about that at all?” to which Irving replied, “No.”

Clearly this guy is cut from a different cloth and is out to be #1 this upcoming NBA season. We are rooting for you Kyrie. Check out the interview below.
