Will J. Cole Top the Charts with ‘Cole World’?

Not so long ago, J. Cole was just another budding rapper hoping for a shot at the big time. In fact, his first meeting with his future mentor and label boss Jay-Z occurred when he brushed past the hip-hop icon on the street, failing to get his attention.

Now, of course, all that persistence has paid off: He’s one of the hottest young performers in hip-hop, and if industry predictions are correct, he could top the Billboard charts next week with his debut album ‘Cole World: The Sideline Story.’

Is Snoop Dogg Going to Star in His Own Sitcom?

As a young Dr. Dre protege, Snoop Doggy Dogg only had his mind on his money and his money on his mind. The idea that he’d one day be making cameos on ‘One Life to Live’ or starring in a reality series about his family would have seemed ludicrous.

The older, wiser Snoop Dogg knows how to step back from the game and have fun, however — and now he’s developing a family-friendly sitcom to prove it.

Footage from Kanye West’s Dirty Puppet Show, ‘Alligator Boots,’ Surfaces [VIDEO]

What do you get when you put together Kanye West, a bunch of puppets, and Kim Kardashian in a Princess Leia bikini?

Thanks to some old footage that has leaked onto the Web, we now know the answer: the never-aired pilot for ‘Alligator Boots,’ the grown-up puppet variety show that West and Rhymefest tried to get off the ground back in 2005. Comedy Central passed on the project, but thanks to the magic of YouTube, now you can see it for yourself — and you really have to see it to believe it.

Tinie Tempah Spends $37,500 on ‘Back to the Future’ Nike Sneakers

When he traveled to the year 2015 in ‘Back to the Future Part II,’ Marty McFly, played by Michael J. Fox, saw plenty of amazing things, and a sizable portion of them — including hoverboards, flying cars, and, thankfully, ‘Jaws Part 19′ — haven’t come to pass.

But thanks to the hardworking scientists in the Nike labs, we now have the glowing, self-lacing sneakers that Marty wore in the future — and they’re being auctioned off to benefit Parkinson’s disease research. UK rapper Tinie Tempah got his hands on the first pair, which set him back the eye-popping sum of $37,500.

Is Will Smith Working on a New Album?

It’s been a long time since Will Smith focused on his music career — and even longer since his days as a chart-topping, multiplatinum hitmaker.

But for Smith, who achieved fame in the ’80s and early ’90s as one half of DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince before launching a wildly successful acting career — and then returning to music with 1997′s massive ‘Big Willie Style’ — a comeback is never out of the question. And it sounds like that might be exactly what he’s planning.
