YG and Fergie

Westside connection. Fergie grabs YG 4 Hunnid for the official remix to her comeback record “L.A.LOVE (la la).” The Compton MC adds some West Coast flavor to the DJ Mustard-produced banger, which you can expect to hear rattling out of a lowrider near you.


In addition to repping his city, YG shouts out billionaire Beats founder Dr. Dre and calls out the LAPD for the Rodney King beating and banning him from the “Drake Vs. Lil Wayne” tour.


Over the weekend, Fergie Ferg and YG boarded a tricked-out party bus and traveled through the streets of L.A. while shooting the video, which features cameos from Sevyn Streeter and Kelly Osbourne.


The Black Eyed Peas singer has been in the studio with Mike WiLL Made-It, Rae Sremmurd, and will.i.am working on the follow-up to 2006′s The Dutchess.

Chris Brown Appears in Court for Progress Hearing

Chris Brown

Chris Brown was back in an L.A. courtroom on Thursday for a progress report hearing in the Rihanna assault case. According to TMZ, his community labor was increased to four days a week, so he can finish his required hours by January.


A somber-looking Chris joined his lawyer Mark Geragos as he faced the judge, who also mentioned that he violated his probation by getting a speeding ticket.


With his new schedule (community service typically lasts eight hours a day), he won’t have much time to rehearse for his upcoming tour with Trey Songz.


The R&B superstars are scheduled to hit the road with Tyga in the months ahead. Breezy will also open the Soul Train Awards in Las Vegas on November 7 and perform with Trigga at Power 106′s Cali Christmas on December 5.


Earlier in the week, he joined Karrueche, Kanye West, and Big Sean at Teyana Taylor’s album listening party in L.A.

Video: Tamar Braxton f/ Future – ‘Let Me Know’

Tamar Braxton

In between hosting “The Real” and taping her reality show “Tamar & Vince,” Tamar Braxton still finds time to slay the screen in the extravagant video with her new single “Let Me Know.” The R&B songstress shines in all her diva glory in the clip, which she directed. She switches up her look several times, from blonde to brunette, and even covers her naked body in glitter.


The Future-assisted song samples Aaliyah’s “At Your Best (You Are Love).” “I’m definitely a fan of Aaliyah,” Tamar said of the late singer. “She was one of my good friends because her uncle [Barry Hankerson] and my sister [Toni] were affiliated at the time, so I spent a lot of time with her.”


Tamar is currently in the studio working on the follow-up to last year’s Love and War. The new season of “Tamar & Vince” premieres tonight at 10 p.m. on WE tv.

He is gearing up to release his sophomore album Mac & Cheese in December. He recently shot a video for his new single “Gucci Mane” with Lil Wayne and Rick Ross, and joined Jeremih on set of the “Don’t Tell ‘Em (Remix)” video.
