Who's the Real Barbie? "Carbon Copy" Lil Kim's Documentary

Marketing scheme or truth? Lil' Kim once again is stating that Nicki Minaj is copying her. This time she has created a documentary that shows evidence of how Nicki Minaj copied her. I will always like and support Nicki but this documentary had me thinking about what Lil' Kim has been saying all along. This documentary was released after her "Black Friday" CD which supposedly sold over a million in sales on pay pal, even though people around the way is saying those figures are false. This video may be away for people to join "team Kim" and buy CD's.

Video of the Week: Diddy Dirty Money- "I Hate That You Love Me"

Diddy Dirty Money has been killing the air with their current radio banger "A** On the Floor". I personally bought their CD and let me just say I LOVE IT! its very "hip pop" which is fine with me cause the music is great and the collabs are amazing. The "I Hate That You Love Me" video is reminds me of  Diddy in the late 90's early 2000's or maybe its just me. I  like the video anyways so hope you enjoy the video of the week.

Love Peace and Hairgrease,
