Fantasia isn’t letting her injury slow her down. It was revealed that the songstress was hospitalized over the weekend after suffering second degree burns on her arm stemming from an accident on her tour bus. Fans will be happy to know that she’s back on stage. Last night, she returned to the stage along  with Johnny Gill and Charlie Wilson on the “In It To Win It Tour” at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. She posted a photograph of herself with her husband with a bandaged right arm writing that she doesn’t intend to let the setback stop her and she thanked those who have supported her. It’s great to see Fantasia back up and at em! For those who are unware, Marsha Ambrosius gave birth to her first child, a daughter named Nyla in December. Last month, the British singer/songwriter announced that she’ll hit the road on the “M.E. Tour” with Eric Benet. Now, she’s released a new single for fans. On the track titled “Don’t Wake The Baby”, the songstress delivers a playful rap/sung style as she shares her thoughts on her relationship with the father of her child and how she’s feeling sexier than ever as a mother. The “M.E. Tour” begins on March 30 in Detroit and will travel to 38 dates, including Atlanta, Houston, New Orleans, New York, Philadelphia, Washington D C, and others before it ends with a 4 night stint at Yoshi’s in San Francisco June 4-8. “Don’t Wake The Baby” is worth a listen. Singe/songwriter Eric Bellinger  shared an acoustic performance of his latest single “Make You Mind”, taken from his forthcoming EP “Eric B. For President: Term 2”, which will be released tomorrow. Laying on a shag rug as waves rush under the glass room, Bellinger and his guitar delivered a laid back performance of the dancehall inspired jam, which he says was inspired by his wife La’Mayia. Bellinger is definitely one to watch. On March 9, 1997, the hip hop community mourned the passing of Christopher “The Notorious B.I.G” Wallace after he was gunned down in Los Angeles. His impeccable flare and innate word play captivated fans on such tracks as “Juicy”, “One More Chance” and “Big Poppa.” Despite having his career curtailed at the very  young age of 24, his debut album, “Ready To Die”, is still revered by hip hop culture 20 years later. In hopes of maintaining his legacy, Fox new reporter Lisa Evers  created a television special to celebrate Biggie’s illustrious career. Evers recruited Lil Cease of Junior M.A.F.I.A. and Hot 97’s DJ Enuff, Biggie’s tour DJ, to reminisce regarding their time spent with the late rapper. During it’s March 3 airing, the special uncovered many hidden gems about Mr. Wallace, who is still missed by many.
