Singer Anthony Hamilton recently appeared in the NPR Music documentary  “Noteworthy.” Host Jay King, curator of  NPR Music’s R&B stream, “I’ll Take You There”, revealed new insight behind the singer/songwriter’s creative direction, inspiration and early development. Hamilton took King to the home were he grew up; the barber shop where he cut hair and found stories for his songs; and the church where he sang his first solo. Before he got the record deal that took him to New York, and then to millions around the world with the release of his debut album “Coming From Where I’m From”, Hamilton cut hair in a Charlotte NC barber shop. He stated that in that environment you have men, woman and children entering and ideas for songs come to mind. “Noteworthy” is certainly worth a watch. As fans eagerly await new music from PARTYNEXTDOOR and Jeremih, the collaborators are now heading out on the road for a joint tour. Following the release of PARTYNEXTDOOR’s new album “P3”, he announced the “Summer’s Over Tour”, featuring Jeremih. The 19 date trek is scheduled to begin on Nov. 8 in Miami and will run through North America before culminating on Dec. 11 in San Francisco. This past June, the two artists announced their joint project “Late Night Part”, which has produced the Lil Wayne assisted single “Like Dat.” Tickets for the tour go on sale Friday, September 30. Presale tickets can be purchased PND’s website. Last night, Beyoncé took time to honor rapper Shawty Lo during a “Formation World Tour” stop in Atlanta. Sadly, Lo died in a car accident, and to honor his musical contributions, Beyoncé and her dancers broke out in a dance break to his hit “Dey Know” mixed with her hit “Diva.” She  later blew a kiss to the sky to honor his spirit. The Game’s verbal attack against rapper Meek Mill continues. In the visual for his new single “Pest Control”, which is a flip on the Young MA hit “OOOUUU”, the West Coast rapper describes the Philadelphia native as a rodent dubbed “Meeky Mouse.” The clip opens with a young boy calling pest control to his house to take care of a rat in his room. The exterminator opens the door and is greeted by Meek Mill’s music before whacking the rat with a bat. The Game then takes his bars to the projects of New York and weaves in classic films such as “Friday” along with football game footage to drive his point home. Game also took aim at Meek Mill’s Dream Chasers signee Omelly during a recent freestyle on “Sway In The Morning” and plugged a clip of Sigel being punched backstage at a Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour concert in Philadelphia, allegedly by a member of Mill’s crew, according to TMZ. Game says the feud started after Mill allegedly admitted to being involved in a nightclub robbery where Sean Kingston’s $300,000 chain was snatched back in June where robberies were apparently running rampant. Stay tuned. Only time will tell where things will go from here.
