Fabolous, Jadakiss – Theme Music ft. Swizz Beatz – Video
After dropping the horror-themed video for “F vs. J” in January, Fabolous and Jadakiss are back with new visuals but leave their frightening alter egos behind.
Teaming up with Swizz Beatz, Fab and Jada head to the roller skating rink for the “Theme Music” video. Rapping over a classic Marvin Gaye sample, Fab, Jada and Swizzy get all dressed up for the old school party.
The three artists celebrate with a group of people as guests pop champagne and dance in the rink on their roller skates. Swizz also show off some of his moves, hitting the two-step as Fab and Jada try to stay upright on their skates.
“Theme Music” is featured on the Friday on Elm Street project which was released in November. Featuring appearances from Future, Teyana Taylor, French Montana, Jeezy and more, Fab said the idea for the project came from him and Jada freestyling together in the past.
“You can take that chemistry and see that we’ve been able to do records,” he told XXL. “It’s not like putting NSYNC with DMX. We got mutual respect for each other. We’re fans of each other’s music and art.”
The Brooklyn rapper also teased a sequel, telling us, “I feel it can be traditional. The same way Thanksgiving meals is traditional, you might need this every once a year. We’ll see.”

Jermaine Dupri Among 2018 Songwriters Hall Of Fame Inductees
A lot of people would tell you it’s close to impossible to write about the history of Atlanta hip-hop without mentioning Jermaine Dupri. It turns out that The Songwriters Hall definitely belong to that group.
On Tuesday (Feb. 6), the organization revealed their 2018 Songwriters Hall of Fame inductees, and the rap trail blazer found himself included on the hallowed list. Other inductees include the likes of John Mellencamp, Alan Jackson, Kool & the Gang and songwriters Bill Anderson and Steve Dorff.
The weight of this accomplishment isn’t lost on Dupri, who uploaded an Instagram post commemorating the feat yesterday. “I can’t fucking believe it!!! This what all the long nights and early mornings is all about #SOSODEF25,” the So So Def Recordings founder wrote in the caption for the post, which included a video of him celebrating the accomplishment.
Just last year, Jay-Z became the very first rapper to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, so, again, Dupri’s induction is no small feat. It’s also completely deserved.
If you didn’t know, Dupri has more than a few hits as a rapper. Even more significantly, though, he penned many of the lyrics for Usher’s acclaimed Confessions album, as well as cuts for the likes of Mariah Carey (“We Belong Together”). Salute to Jermaine.

Watch Justin Timberlake Honor Prince in Halftime Spectacle
Justin Timberlake tore through a bevy of his hits including “Suit & Tie,” “Rock Your Body,” “SexyBack” and his new song, “Filthy,” during his performance at the Super Bowl LII Halftime Show.
Timberlake’s set marked his record-setting third time playing the Super Bowl, following appearances at Super Bowls XXXV and XXXVII. The latter performance, in 2004, became infamous when Janet Jackson joined the singer onstage and Timberlake, during a rendition of “Rock Your Body,” reached and pulled off a piece of Jackson’s bustier, exposing her breast.
In a recent interview with Zane Lowe, Timberlake spoke about the wardrobe malfunction, saying, “I stumbled through it … to be quite honest, I had my wires crossed. It’s just something that you have to look back on and go, ‘OK, you can’t change what’s happened, but you can move forward and learn from it … It’s just one of those things were you go, like, ‘Yeah, what do you want me to say?’ We’re not going to do that again.”
Timberlake released his new album, Man of the Woods, last Friday. The pop star will kick off a North American tour in support of the record March 13th in Toronto.

Kylie Minogue in New ‘Dancing’ Video
Kylie Minogue plays both honky tonk angel and club queen in the glitzy new video for “Dancing.” The track will appear on the Australian pop star’s new album, Golden, out April 6th.
Despite years of experience, Minogue said this choreography presented a new challenge for her. “I always thought I could learn routines quickly, but this was different,” she said. “However, by the time I had to dance with the Grim Reaper at the end I had mastered it. And if that’s not a funny allegory for life I don’t know what is!”
