Tweets Of The Week
It has been a turbulent week on the celebrity Twittersphere. J. Cole dropped ‘Truly Yours 2’, which had Tia from ‘Sister Sister’ asking questions, Justin Timberlake broke the news that there will be a ‘20/20 Experience’ part two and Mic Righteous dropped a free mixtape for the fans! However, another tragic incident brought the timeline back to reality, as stars mourned the death of Kris Kross star Chris Kelly…
@Drake: @Binkdog and @ovo40 on a beat together… scary.
As Drake fans wait patiently for the release of his third studio album ‘Nothing Was The Same’, the Toronto emcee revealed the production on a new track. The collaboration between Drizzy’s best friend and trusted producer 40 and Bink Dog who is best known for his production with some of the great Roc-A-Fella artists was hinted about by the Young Money artist; now all we can do is wait.
@Liannelahavas: My dad: “I’ve done an Ouija Board and it was weird; I couldn’t put my finger on it.”
Well, Lianne La Havas must have had a pretty comedic upbringing if her father stayed consistent with his material. The London born singer revealed one of her father’s jokes to the timeline this week and to be fair, it was a solid attempt! Lianne is currently touring and her most recent date was at the Cheltenham festival on May 5.
@Wale: I wrote a book. 6/25
As the anticipation builds for Wale’s new album ‘The Gifted’, the MMG rapper is slowly but surely building the hype around the project. With online episodes showcasing the making of the album as well as a strong online Twitter campaign, the Washington native is sure to bring the heat come June 25.
@2Chainz: My theory is that sumone WILL always be doin better than you, and sumone WILL always be doin worse… As long as you in the middle u good dog
I present to you, 2 Chainz the philosopher… Minus the spelling mistakes. The ‘No Lie’ rapper decided to preach to the timeline this week, revealing that he sees no harm in occupying the middle ground. Something tells me that he should be pushing himself more, however, after his success last year, being in the middle surely can’t be that bad?
@ChrisBrown: Sometimes loving someone is too much! So loving from a distance will help everyone grow! Be blessed! Live ya Life!
Chris Brown’s latest indirect to his on again, off again partner Rihanna surely confirms that they are no longer together. This tweet came after Brown’s controversial interview with Australian radio hosts Kyle and Jackie O. On the show Breezy confessed: “The way I look at it is… I’m always going to love that person, but people have differences, and people have different wants and needs. At the end of the day [Rihanna’s] a young girl. I can’t really be focused on wife-ing somebody that young… and I’m young too.”
@JColeNC: Noooo @tiamowry Don’t do itttttttt
Roc Nation lyricist J. Cole recently rapped about his sexual fantasies of getting intimate with twin actresses Tia and Tamera Mowry from the 90s TV show ‘Sister, Sister’, and to Cole’s surprise Tia took notice! Cole rhymed, "If I had one wish, I would f**k Tia and Tamera, at the same time/And put name tags on they titties so I don’t get they name wrong/Screamin' "Game on"/Like Wayne's World, that just came on." Tia responded tweeting: "So I'm hearing J Cole mentioned the sis and I in a song? Send me the link? I'm curious.." How awkward.

Justin Timberlake unveiled the most exciting piece of news this week. The ‘Pusher Love Girl’ crooner revealed that the second and final installment to his ‘20/20 Experience’ franchise will be released on September 30. Timberlake has to be the hardest working star in the industry right now; not only is the singer releasing two albums in a year but he also revealed his tour dates, which commence on October 31. Timberlake is also hosting Capital FM’s Summertime Ball (June 9) and headlining at Yahoo Wireless festival (July 14) alongside Jay-Z.
@Ludacris: One of my motivations as a kid to even get into the rap game. You will be missed. R.I.P. Chris Kelly
@KeriHilson: Rest In Peace, Chris Kelly. Kris Kross lives forever. Thank you for the memories. #AtlantasOwn
@DeLaSoulsDugOut: RIP Chris Kelly from Kris Kross
@BigBoi: R.I.P. Chris Kelly #KrisKross
On the night of May 1, the world of hip-hop suffered a tragedy when news broke that Chris ‘Mac Daddy’ Kelly, part of the iconic duo Kris Kross, was found dead in his Atlanta home. For many fans Kris Kross were an early introduction to the hip-hop genre with their legendary track ‘Jump’, which everyone, even if not a fan of hip-hop, can appreciate. Artists rightfully paid tribute to the fallen star.
