RAPPER JAY Z TO MAKE A DOCUMENTARY ABOUT TRAYVON MARTIN

jayzpicThe rap mogul Jay Z is partnering with the Weinstein Company to produce a feature film and documentary series about the killing of Trayvon Martin, the teen whose death in 2012 set off nationwide protests.

They will make the film and six-part docu-series after winning a bidding war for the rights to two books about the killing of the unarmed black teenager by George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer, the trade magazine Variety reported on Thursday.

The case ignited civil unrest across the country and a debate about racial profiling. It also gave birth to the Black Lives Matter movement.

Zimmerman, who claimed he shot Martin in self-defense, was acquitted of a charge of second degree murder in 2013 by a jury in Florida.

The film and series projects will be based on the books Suspicion Nation: The Inside Story of the Trayvon Martin Injustice and Why We Continue to Repeat It and Rest in Power: The Enduring Life of Trayvon Martin, Variety said.

NICKI MINAJ TO RE-SHOOT NO FRAUDS VIDEO

nickiminnajNicki Minaj is reportedly re-shooting her latest music video following the terrorist attack in London last week.

The rap star filmed scenes for the No Frauds video on Westminster Bridge just a day before three people were killed on the iconic landmark last Wednesday (22.03.17) when a terrorist drove a car into pedestrians but the footage is now unlikely to make the final edit, with Nicki feeling it would be inappropriate.

A source said: When everybody involved in the project heard the news they were devastated and thought it would be in bad taste to feature it.

The other London scenes will remain, but its highly doubtful the bridge footage will make the cut.

Nicki who wore a silver-beaded corset and headdress while filming on Westminster Bridge previously paid tribute to the victims of the terrorism incident, which ultimately led to the deaths of five people, on Twitter.

DRAKE RETURNS WITH A DANCEHALL BEAT ON MADIBA RIDDIM

drakeoneDrake, the prolific hip-hop star who was last years top-selling artist, has returned with a song collection in which he ventures further into dancehall rhythms and taps fellow big names.

The Toronto rapper, who has long challenged industry definitions, on Saturday dropped More Life and called it not an album or a mixtape but his first playlist.

More Life is anchored by Fake Love, Drakes infectious hit about the phoniness of those around him. He released the song late last year but it did not appear on his blockbuster album Views.

The track is built off a stripped-down beat reminiscent of dancehall, the energetic popular music of Jamaica. He goes more heavily into dancehall on Madiba Riddim, which alludes to anti-apartheid hero Nelson Mandela and has echoes of Drakes mega-hit with Rihanna Too Good.

Drake, who says he resents being labeled simply as a rapper, goes into full-fledged pop on tracks such as Teenage Fever, a love song that is partially a cover of Jennifer Lopezs If You Had My Love.

LOURDE MAKES A COMEBACK WITH A DANCE TRACK

lordeIn one of the most anticipated returns in pop music, Lorde unveiled a new song Thursday in which the onetime teenage star takes a new dance sound and adult look.

The now 20-year-old New Zealander announced a second album called Melodrama, her follow-up to 2013s Pure Heroine which won her phenomenal success while still a teenager.

Lorde released the albums first single, Green Light, which is driven by a strikingly more lively beat than her Grammy-winning breakthrough hit, the minimalist Royals.

Green Light starts off with a sullen piano as Lorde, appearing to explain a breakup, sings: I do my makeup in somebody elses car / We order different drinks at the same bars.

The track quickly heads in a dance direction, with the piano backed up by a driving bass-line, a back-up chorus and a subtle electronica beat.
