The show will give viewers a revealing look inside the songstress’ life as she heads out on a European tour and prepares for her lavish wedding to billionaire fiancé James Packer. Although she hasn’t confirmed it, twins Moroccan and Monroe and ex-husband Nick Cannon will appear on the show. “Mariah’s Word” premieres on Dec. 4 on E! Singer/rapper/songwriter Lauryn Hill is hitting the road. In association with Live Nation and Tidal, the iconic artist has announced dates for the :”MLH Caravan: A Diaspora Calling!

Netflix is currently working on an original animated series for children based on the Jobete catalog of Motown hits from artists, including Marvin Gaye, The Jackson 5, Lionel Richie, Smokey Robinson, The Supremes, The Temptations and Stevie Wonder. Smokey Robinson, who played  an integral role in the cultural impact of Motown, will serve as the show’s executive producer. Robinson will also curate song choices and select cover artists.  The first season soundtrack will feature songs covered by contemporary artists and will be released on Melodia/Motown Records to coincide with the still unannounced air date of the show. The Motown series will follow the adventures of an 8-year-old boy named Ben, who lives in the imaginary city of Motown and possesses the ability to bring street art to life. Striking a similar chord to “Beat Bugs”, each episode will draw inspiration from Jobete classics, bringing 52 songs from the label to the small screen. Drake shouted out New York City radio station Hot 97 during his “Summer Sixteen” tour stop at Madison Square Garden last night, but not in a good way. Dreezy said, “they telling lies on Hot 97 and that’s how it goes”, during a freestyle near the beginning of the show, revving up a beef he’s had with several of the stations DJs. He later added, “I told them fire Funk Flex, then I’ll come and do your show.” The shot at Hot 97 came after the station’s Ebro Darden suggested that Drake once told him in private that he’d respond to Eminem if Marshall Mathers ever dissed the 6 God on record. Ebro later stated that it was a joke tied to Drake’s ongoing beef with a member of Eminem’s Shady Records crew, Slaughterhouse’s Joe Budden. Ebro responded to the alleged concert diss by saying that Drake has been at odds with Funkmaster Flex. Rapper Juicy J is back on his grind. After releasing “Stay Trippy” in 2013, the Memphis MC returns with his sophomore effort “Rubba Band Business: The Album.” The project is due this fall via Columbia Records/Kemosabe, according to a press release. Juicy J has delivered the visual for the album’s first single “No English”, which co-stars Travis Scott. Directed by RJ Sanchez and Brendan Vaughan of Snow Beach, the video is a salute to foreign women who can’t speak English. The former Three Six Mafia member and Academy Award winner has had prior mainstream success with such hits as “Bandz A Maker Dance”. He has collaborated with Justin Timberlake, Big Sean, Wale and Chris Brown.
