IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: VH1's Behind The Music: Nas

Nas isn't the most talkative interview subject, so some fans might be a bit surprised that the Queensbridge rapper signed on to film an episode of VH1's "Behind the Music." When MTV News caught up with him recently, Nas revealed that he was very reluctant to be featured on the show. "It was tough. I didn't want to do 'Behind the Music,' " Nas admits. "I didn't. But at some point, if you don't tell your story, somebody else will. So I gave them a little peek inside.

MUSIC NEWS: Rihanna teases with 'Where Have You Been?' Video Stills

The pieces of Rihanna's "Where Have You Been" music video puzzle are coming together, one photo at a time. 

In a new black-and-white pic posted Monday on her Facebook page, the singer kneels in a landscape of tree branches and cascading flowers. Next to her is a white fur throw. Clad in a mesh bikini top and a metallic skirt, Rihanna is wearing her hair down and sporting big bangles. 

In March, Rihanna was snapped on the set of the video. In a candid picture posted online, the singer is looking down, her hair is done up in a messy way and she's sporting no top, but is wearing lots of clunky bracelets. About the video, she teased, "Video shoot goin MAJAH!" 

Weeks later, she dropped the single art for the song. In it, Rihanna covers most of her face with a leopard-print scarf. All fans see of her is her eye, all dolled up with heavy, smoky eye makeup. 

"Where Have You Been" will be the third video released from Talk That Talk, following the footsteps of the quirky "You Da One" clip and the cinematic "We Found Love." This is also her second single produced and written by Calvin Harris, who also worked with her on "WFL." The song's production also gets an assist from Dr. Luke and Ester Dean, among others. 

While she has yet to announce a release date for the video, she did offer a bit of insight into when it might drop, writing on Facebook, "The countdown to 'Where Have You Been' is on." 


MAG SCANS: Waka Flocka covers SPIN Magazine [VIDEO]

Waka Flocka Flame is upside down on the cover of SPIN Magazine's May/June issue. The 25-year-old Atlanta rapper is the couldn't-be-more-perfect face of our first-ever Loud Issue, dedicated to all things enjoyably and compellingly disruptive. 

Not just because of his blaring dreadlocks or booming sonics or growled hooks, but — as writer Julianne Escobedo Shepherd discovers during a whirlwind international adventure — he's a character at a moment when that quality seems at a premium.

 And while he's on the cusp of mega stardom, flying to Paris at a moment's notice when Kanye beckons, he's held in check by two personal tragedies, even if you couldn't tell from his fun-loving, club-destroying image. "I'm 25, but I got an old man's soul," he says. "I just know how to camouflage it."  

Check out Waka showing a bit of his funny side in the below clip!

Ex-Bad Boy rapper-turned-preacher Mase is making a comeback for the second time round and has been spotted in the studio with Omarion.

GOSSIP: Nicki Minaj deletes her TWITTER page?

Nicki Minaj seems to have had enough of the Twitter world. The star recently deleted her popular Twitter page, igniting a firestorm of outcries and shock from her legions of fans.

It’s still unclear why Minaj deleted her account, but it’s assumed that it may have something to do with negativity that she’s received from her some of her 11 million Twitter followers and an early leak of snippets of her Roman Reloaded album on a fansite.

Shortly before Minaj deleted her page, she tweeted, “Like seriously, it’s but so much a person can take. Good f—-ing bye.”
Minaj warned fans of the deletion the previous day when she wrote that she was angry with her beloved “Barbz.”

“And that’s exactly why I’m paying the barbz DUST right now! And deleting my twitter. Smdh – don’t cry 4 me argentina.” Minaj tweeted, adding, “On 2nd thought I’ll just follow a new set of barbz. The ones I follow r very mean and ratchet.*side eyes them*”

Just minutes after Minaj deleted her account, a slew of her loyal Barbz went into action and started the trending topic #NickiComeBack, while sharing their disappointment and rage over their leader’s departure.

Her hype man and alleged boyfriend, Scaff Breezy, tweeted “s— just got real.”

We’re not sure what Minaj is going through, but her fans sure aren’t happy, but then again, neither is she.


MUSIC NEWS: Kanye West changes song title from 'Theraflu' to 'Way Too Cold'

Kanye West has changed the title of his most recent single from "Theraflu" to "Way Too Cold." But while Island Def Jam claims the change was a "creative decision," the move was more likely made to avoid potential legal action from the medicine brand.

"Last week, Kanye West lit up the airwaves with a surprise Funkmaster Flex exclusive of his incendiary new track 'Theraflu' through New York’s Hot 97. Within hours, the track and its vivid, revealing, personal lyrics had taken over the blogosphere, streets and clubs, inciting a firestorm in the press, both on and offline," a press release from West's label read. "Today, Kanye announces the creative decision to title the track 'Way Too Cold' feat. DJ Khaled."
Peep the track below. I'm feeling this from Kanye.
