Queen Sleeze, better known as Nicki Minaj (New York's current Rap Queen) or Ms. Do We Have A Problem?, bussed out of writer's block and topped off the year with a few bangers....  Followed by some controversial features... and even more controversial appearances; at Essence and Wireless Fests.

Blick Blick.  In true Queen fashion, Nicki bodied verses on all her latest singles, but We Go Up ft. Fivio Foreign is our fav!

🎵 "New York City please go easy, on me tonight",  sings Alicia Keys on City of Gods ft. Kanye West, a track off Fivio Foreign's latest album, B.I.B.L.E.

The tracks allows Fivio to paint the portrait, of an inner-city Black male from Brooklyn, who believes success is a win for him, and others alike.

B.I.B.L.E shows Foreign's range as an artist, while providing female fans with relatable R&B sampled tracks, like, What's My Name ft. Coi Leray & Queen Naija.  A fresh take on a 90's smash hit, Naija, melodically pays homage to Destiny's Childs', 'Say My Name', the second single off The Writings on the Wall.

Fivio gotta be this years' number one featured artist - also appearing on City Girls' Top Notch, Skillibeng's Whap Whap Remix, and Slide by the Lobby Boyz, Maino and Jim Jones.

Speaking of Jimmy, he dropped a monster banger; 'We Set The Trends' ft. Migos, this past December, and celebrated his 46th birthday a few days ago with friends and family.  

Maino recently collaborated with Macy Gray on a new single; 'Every Night', and joined her (and the California Jet Club band), for a performance on the Today Show, where Gray spoke with Hoda Kotb about her upcoming album, The Reset.

"The upside of the shutdown was that it was a good time to be creative", said Gray, who's album is scheduled to be released August 10th.
