And Tyson, it turns out, has more than just punches to level at Soulja Boy. He's recording a diss track aimed at the rapper. Tyson tweeted a picture on January 8th standing in front of a microphone. "In studio. Dropping heat. Wait and see what this is about…" he wrote.
TMZ got their hands on the first few seconds of the track. "If you show up, it's going down/ I'm going to teach him how to knock your a– out," Tyson threatens in the first verse. And he's not stopping there. Brown is reportedly contributing a verse to the track soon, and they'll even film a music video to back it up. So the war of words that began between Brown and Soulja Boy and turned into a very real boxing match has now turned into a new war of words. It's the beef that won't stop broiling. Checkout the cliphere.

Speaking with Billboard, Nineteen85 explained, "More Life is interesting because this is [Drake] right on the peak of his biggest project yet [with Views], doing his biggest tour and still having so many good ideas that he just wants to put out without making it a big ordeal," he said.
But more than releasing More Life without a bunch of fanfare, Drake is interested in continuing to introduce listeners to artists doing special work. "That's why he's trying to call it a playlist because he has a bunch of people in a space, hanging out," Nineteen85 continued. "He's so aware of what everybody else is doing musically that he likes to introduce new music and new artists to the rest of the world."
It sounds as though, besides individual tracks from other artists, More Life will involve several collaborations. Read morehere.

Lauper recently wrapped up a headlining nationwide tour in 2016 after reigning in a new legion of fans with her new country-tinged album DETOUR, which features a collection of country covers from the 40's, 50's and 60's.
Detour, which debuted No. 4 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart, features duets with several special guests, including country music royalty: Emmylou Harris (on the title track), Willie Nelson ("Night Life," a song he wrote over 50 years ago), Vince Gill (Loretta Lynn and Conway Twitty's "You're The Reason Our Kids Are Ugly") and Alison Krauss (Dolly Parton's "Hard Candy Christmas.")

He co-wrote much of the album, but that song came to him from some pretty high profile writers: Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley of Florida Georgia Line (along with James McNair and Cameron Montgomery).
"I just went out on tour with them," Brown says. "Tyler Hubbard from FGL came on the bus and said, ' I have a song to show you.' I was super pumped." He said that the song immediately resonated with him. "I'm from a small hometown, and when I heard the song, 'All I want to do is make my hometown proud,' and then we get to the bridge and they were shouting out their hometowns, so it was a chance for me to shout my hometown out. I just fell in love with the song. My hometown loves it!"

The alt-rock trio--Corin Tucker, Carrie Brownstein and Janet Weiss--ended their show at Nob Hill Masonic Auditorium with Michael's 'Faith" and Bowie's 'Rebel Rebel."
Balloons lined the stage while a Happy New Year sign hung on the backdrop.

Now a trailer has arrived and it has an absurdist screwball quality: Fiennes and Stockard Channing play Jackson and Elizabeth Taylor on a cross-country road trip in the immediate aftermath of 9/11. Brian Cox plays Marlon Brando, who also joined the alleged ride.
The show appears to feature disconnected vignettes: Cary Grant and Timothy Leary taking LSD, Adolph Hitler and a "friend" working on art together, and Bob Dylan searching for "Dave." The trailer lampoons its subjects as well as the public curiosity that surrounds the tallest tales about them. It's not going for hyper-realism. Watch the Urban Mythshere.
