Chris Brown has warned the Jackson family that their feud may harm Michael’s children. “That Jackson family feud shit gotta stop! Stop making y’all business public!” he tweeted. ” Michael was under enough scrutiny … Don’t put the kids through the bullshit! Work y’all shit out as a family and stop giving them the pleasure of fucking wit y’all!” [Twitter]

Nas has scored yet another No. 1 album with Life Is Good, exceeding industry expectations by over 25,000 units, selling 139,402 last week. [HDD]

According to industry insiders, Amazon’s pricing has damaged Frank Ocean‘s Channel Orange sales, “punishing the artist and the label in a pretty sneaky and clever way. They are also definitely sending a message to other labels that giving iTunes an exclusive will have consequences.” Interesting. [Billboard]
