Jay-Z & Beyonce Celebrate in Cuba, Amy Winehouse’s Dad Asks Beyonce for £100,000 & More


Jay-Z and Beyonce were a pretty big deal in Cuba today. The power couple were spotted celebrating their five year anniversary at a restaurant in Havana, where police had to step in to keep the crowd under control. So crazy in love. [RapFix]

Meanwhile, Amy Winehouse‘s father Mitch thinks that Beyonce should pay £100,000 to the Amy Winehouse Foundation for covering her song “Back to Black” on The Great Gatsby soundtrack. “I don’t know this but what if Beyonce gave £100,000 to foundation. Do you know how many kids that would help? Just putting it out there.” Not really mad at that. [YahooUK]

Nicki Minaj has teamed up with Beats by Dre to release a portable pink “Pill” wireless speaker. “I am so excited about this product. It’s something I actually use,” Nicki said. “It’s a little tiny speaker that I can travel with yet the sound is incredibly loud and rich. I knew the Barbz would not only love it, but that they’d want it in pink! So, here ya go Barbz!!!! My PINK PILL!” Kinda making us wish someone else had taken a pill, but whatever. Holla. [Rap-Up]

Almost a decade after releasing their last official album, The Grind Date, De La Soul are releasing a series of digital singles, starting next week with “Get Away (Feat. the Spirit of Wu-Tang).” “It’s pretty much reflecting on the state of hip-hop at this moment. Everything is redundant. Everything sounds the same. No real lyrical content. Everybody’s just doing business, not really creating,” De La DJ Maseo said in a recent interview. [RollingStone]
