Check out the spread:

Here's Behind The Scenes footage of Travie's shoot:


In his exclusive interview with Honey, Travie talks about his upcoming album, breakups, his love for rap beef, and Forgetting Katy Perry. Cute. Hear more about it in his interview.


Yes! I absolutely love this man! I've been following Travie and GCH since the beginning of their time. I'm so ecstatic that he's doing a project outside of GCH. From the sound of his first single, "Billionaire" ft. Bruno Mars, I know this album will be my ish! The video makes it even better. It makes me wanna go back to Cali, to Venice beach. Beautiful! and might I add, I die for Travie's blog.

If you've missed it, peep:

Travie's first project outside of GCH, Lazarus, is set to drop June 8.

Fun Fact: Travie's middle name is Lazarus.

Video | Bobby Brown Proposes During Concert.

Bobby Brown surprised everyone as he got down on one knee to propose to his girlfriend Alecia (of three years) on stage during a concert in Jacksonville, FL. Their 11-month-old son, Cassius, accompanied Alecia on stage.


Seems like Bobby is really trying to get himself together. He's laying off of the drugs, working on his weight, touring with Ralph and Johnny. Hopefully he's really found true love.

When Ralph Tresvant asked Bobby, "This one's forever, right?" Bobby replied, "Yeah, I hope so. Ima work harder on this one than I did on the last one." We'll see. Congrats and good luck!

New Music | TheSekondElement - The Kommencement.

TheSeKondElement drops her debut LP, The Kommencement today.

"The timing & title is more than fitting. Commencement means a beginning or start. It is also a ceremony in which degrees or diplomas are conferred on graduating students. Dropping a year & 1 day after she received her own degree from Xavier University and two days after many of her closest friends received theirs, this truly is just the beginning for TheSeKondElement and everyone in her camp.

If you love Hip Hop &/or poetry you are sure to love this project. If you aren't feeling Hip Hop or poetry so much, this is the perfect project for you to give either genre another try. Listeners and fans across the country have called TheSeKondElement's music refreshing and a detour from current radio & TV play.
