Girl, Go Play Candy Crush: Carmen Bryan

Good news for those of you who have been eagerly anticipating Carmen Bryan‘s second book. All four of you.

Nas’ former girlfriend and mother to daughter Destiny offered her thoughts on the Queensbridge rapper, his bromance with Jay-Z, his ex-wife Kelis and more in a recent “Ask Me Anything” session while teasing the follow up to her 2007 tell-all on Twitter this week.

“I didn’t didn’t realize you and Jay were serious about each other. I thought it was just a fling,” one of her followers tweeted. “Wars don’t start over flings,” Bryan began. “There’s no doubt Jay-Z excited the world, however, I’m the girl that excited Jay-Z.”

No need to pay a king’s ransom to splash your face with water from the fountain of youth when you’re Nas.

The veteran rapper jogged the memories of fans by performing classic cuts off his earlier albums before presenting fresh selections from his latest studio album ‘Life Is Good’ at the Rock The Bells festival in Mountain View, California over the weekend.

“If I was ever to be a guy who threw a tour together, it would be this type of tour,” he explained to Rolling Stone. “It wouldn’t be anything pop; it would be everyone who claims hip-hop gets down on the stage, so you get the best show in the world. I couldn’t do it no other way.”

Watch Nas bid ex-wife Kelis a musical farewell while taking a fond look back at their wedding in the teaser clip for his new video “Bye Baby” below.

Journeys In Crunk: Moet Rose Lounge Presents Nas’ Life Is Good Album Release Party

Written by Crissle | @Crissles

I showed up at Bagatelle last night to cover Nas‘ album release party for ‘Life Is Good’ on behalf of Crunk + Disorderly prepared for only one thing – unlimited Moët. As an Oklahoma girl who just relocated to New York City six weeks ago, I’ve never been to an industry party and the biggest celebrity I’ve ever been within ten feet of is Toby Keith. So I decided to go with an open mind, a fully charged phone, and a two drink maximum just to keep it classy.

I arrived exactly at 10:00, made it inside by 10:30, and was half-drunk by 10:45. Girls dressed like Kardashians stood at the entrance, smiling and holding trays of miniature bottles of Moët. Two drink maximum? Whoops. Yes I sure will take one, thank you miss. And yes I sure will take another. Y’all are so sweet.

Waiters buzzed around the room offering appetizers I’ve never seen before, but since I didn’t want to drink on an empty stomach (and rarely turn down a snack) I ate them anyway.

Everyone there seemed to know each other but people were surprisingly friendly, breaking into big smiles when I told them I was present on behalf of Crunk + Disorderly. “Really?” said one girl, motioning to her friend. “I love that blog!” I smiled and kept drinking.
