The long anticipated straight Hip-Hop volume of music from Dark House 415’s Shagg Colie aka Mr. 478 has hit the streets!

Dark House 415 is a movement that demands attention! If you were taken by a storm when Dungeon Family, No Limit, or Cash Money hit the scene dropping artist after artist, hit after hit, show after show, then you better get your storm gear back out! Often times I’ve been guilty of saying that Hip-Hop is dead with the way the Rap game has landed on the scene, but Shagg Colie brings us HOPE! If you think you’re the master of freestyle I suggest you challenge Shagg Colie. He don’t need a beat, he don’t need a story line, all he needs is “ONE” word and the battle is on! This brother will destroy you!

His entire, “No Pen, No Pad, No Sleep” was released on Tuesday, November 8th and has already slammed the hits on Youtube and ReverbNation. If you haven’t heard him do his thang at Monday Night Live in Macon, GA, don’t sweat it, just scroll down and find the entire mixtape uploaded from

DJ REUP Tha Boss has struck gold with Shagg Colie. The organization has people from every end of the states scratching their heads trying to figure out, “where did this phenomenal fall from the sky”?

Check him out for yourself.

THE HEAT: Hey Shag, what they say to you when they hear you on the mic?
COLIE: They say, “REALITY”!

I feel you, I do!
Much Love! One Love!

Uncle Luke Gives Diddy & Lil Wayne A Deadline To Start Giving Back To Miami Or Have Their Passes Revoked

Wednesday, October 5th, 2011

Luther Campbell aka Uncle Luke is getting tired of celebrities living in his city, but not giving back to the community.

The former 2 Live Crew front man wrote an article yesterday for the Miami New Times calling out Diddy, Lil Wayne and DJ Khaled. He’s giving them until January 2012 to start helping in the community or risk having their Miami passes revoked.

I’ve got a message for Lil Wayne, his Cash Money Brothers, DJ Khaled, Puff Daddy and all the rappers from other parts of the country who now live in Miami. I’m tired of seeing these cats using up our beaches, soaking up our sunshine, taking over the nightclubs, and sleeping with our women without investing anything into the community. I want to know when Lil Wayne is going to do more than show up courtside at the American Airlines Arena. Hell, it’s not like he paid for them anyway. You know he got comped.

This free loading and mooching of my city has got to stop. There used to be a day when out of town rappers were scared to throw their weight around Miami. It didn’t matter if they were coming from New York or Los Angeles, they knew better than to act like they owned this mother f*****.

Artists knew better than to come to Miami and disrespect us.But now folks in Miami’s entertainment industry have gone soft, turning into a bunch of groupies just because they want to say they drank Rozay with the Cash Money crew.

Just cause Lil Wayne and DJ Khaled are from New Orleans doesn’t mean they don’t have to be a part of the community. They’re getting rich under fun and sun. They rap in their songs about King of Diamonds and LIV nightclub, where Lil Wayne was partying it up with Dirk Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks after they beat the Miami Heat for the NBA championship.

What kind of sell-out move is that? I want to see Lil Wayne, DJ Khaled, Puff Daddy and all their boys start doing more for Miami. I want to see them doing fundraisers to help youth sports and after school programs. I want to see them at FCAT rallies. I want to see them do like Pitbull who works closely with the Kiwanis Club in Little Havana and DJ Irie who puts on a charity weekend for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

I’m giving them a deadline. They got until January 1. If I don’t see them giving back to the Magic City, I’m gonna have their Miami cards revoked. They won’t be getting into any more nightclubs. They won’t be able to go near our women. And Lil Wayne is gonna have to find floor seats for New Orleans Hornets home games because he won’t be allowed inside the Triple A.

Alwasyz Thoro chose to define this very talented, unique, and heart-warming goddess, “triple threat”, as she calls herself, “Cash Money’s latest R&Booty artist”. This all came with the release of her single, “Clean Up Woman”. For real, I didn’t know booties could sing! Although I have heard they can clap…but seriously! No disrespect meant at Alwasyz Thoro, but he missed the mark on this one. And if that wasn’t enough, Karlie Redd is being compared bootilicious with her label sister, Nicki Minaj. Not saying that’s a bad thing, Nikki Minaj is surely one to be compared to, but after getting the opportunity to have a chit chat with Redd, I would compare her to the likes of Queen Latifah and Beyounce`, because of her charisma and entrepreneurship success.

Although Karlie Redd spent most of her childhood in Trinidad, she was born in New York where she cultivated her style and vision at the Harlem School of Arts and Alvin Ailey Dance Company. Thinking ahead, she realized at some point in her music career there would be the decision of who would shoot her videos, so to lock that aspect of her career down as well, she earned her degree in film directing and producing. I say she cuts herself short when she describes herself as a triple threat. Maybe that was just for Alwasyz Thoro, physically describing her looks, her tits, and her booty, but in my book she could easily weigh in as a Heavyweight, scaling her career as a beautiful entertainer, singer, dancer, model, actress, writer, producer and director. Karlie Redd is aiming high and has put together a professional profile with artist as, Tyrese Gibson, Jamie Foxx, Sean Kingston, Claudette Ortiz, and Will.I.Am, to say the least. Signing Karlie Redd was a smart move by Cash Money because the list is LONG of people who wish they had discovered the gem first. The competition to rise to the top at Cash Money is slim to none since Redd is only the third hottest female to grace the over populated male roster of; Lil Wayne, Cory Cruz, Drake, Gudda Gudda, Jae Millz, Lil Chuckie, Lil Twist, Mack Maine, Short Dawg, T-Streets, and Tyga. Redd will be joining the short list of females which is made up of Nicki Minag, Shanell, and now Karlie Redd. So Alwasyz Thoro, there’s the triple threat indeed!

Redd only had a few moments to spend with Nik-O-Licious and here’s what she wanted her fans to know.

The Heat:You have a limelight of career hats you wear, tell us about them?
Redd: Well everybody this is Karlie Redd, over here with The Heat Magazine excited to be apart of you guys! First thing is my singing. I’m an R&B artist signed with Cash Money. I’m an actress as well. I’ve been on a promotional for the T.V. show I was on called “Scream Queens” on VH1. I graduated with a degree in film directing. I’ve directed films, wrote scripts and treatments. I produce film as well. I’m a dancer and I have a Promotions company in LA. I also do Urban modeling and Fashion modeling. I’ve been in magazines like Essence and most of the Urban magazines. Oh my God, it’s crazy. I’ve been really busy. (she giggles shyly)
The Heat: You doing the thang lady. Of all those hats, which is the most passionate for Karlie Redd?
Redd: I can’t pen point one thing that I’m most passionate about because everything I put my hands on, it’s my passion. It’s just delegating the right team to make it work. I’m most passionate about everything because if you’re not, you’re not gonna want to do it, you know.
The Heat: What is it like being the Eye Candy of the industry right now representing Cash Money?
Redd: It’s great! It’s a new thing for me. Right now they’re developing me as an artist. It’s great!
The Heat: We know you can’t talk about the movie project in depth you’re currently working on, but can you share with us some of the other actresses or actors you’re currently working with?
Redd: You’re right, I can’t talk about it but there’s one coming out that I can talk about. It’s called “We Are Family”. Omarosa, Christian Keys, Chyna Layne, D Woods, and Frenchie Davis are all in “We Are Family” to be released before the end of the year. The Project I’m currently on, no I can’t talk about it but I can tell you it has a lot of Reality Show stars, basically all of them…all of us, you know I was on the Reality Show Scream Queens. That should be coming out next year.
The Heat: When you look at your life today, versus what it was when you first made the leap into doing Karlie Redd, is there anything you feel you would have done differently?
Redd: (she sighs and gently giggles) Ummm, that’s such an emotional question for me. It takes me to an emotional place. It’s so many things I would have done differently. But one of the most things I realize now that I should have realized then is called, “time”. Can’t get back time. You just can not get back time. When you’re doing this entertainment industry period, you can fall into a trap where you can play a lot. You get involved in the parting and the this and the that and you waste a lot of time doing frivolous things. Now I know better.
The Heat: What ‘s in the future for Karlie Redd that her fans should be on the lookout for?

Redd:My new single, “Louie Prada Gucci..LPG”..I have a lot of features on this CD and we’re just gonna drop all of them and take it to the streets, you know..create a buzz and make it happen. It’s going to be really hot! Also I’m going to be doing somethings on the producing side. I can’t say if it’s film or music, but when I do it, I’ll come back and talk to The Heat Magazine about them. I’m going to be producing and creating some projects that are going to be re-di-cu-lous! Also I’m writing a book that’s soon to be published. It’s a sex book. It’s not a tell all, it’s a fictional sex book in exactly the way Zane puts it down..(she laughs hard)
The Heat: Any last minute thoughts or shout outs before we wrap up?
Redd: Definitely, I would like for everyone when my single drops to buy, copy, share, download, however you can get your hands on it. It’s some great names on it, it’s gonna be “hot”, “Louie Prada Gucci”..”L.P.G”. I definitely want to thank my team, for all their hard work, I love you. My family, my fans; we all know without “fans”, we are nothing. My label, my manager, and EVERYONE that has a hand in developing Karlie Redd and her success. I have to thank you Nik and The Heat Magazine for reaching out to me to be apart of The Heat Family. Thanks Everyone!

We Love you Karlie Redd! Can’t wait for that “SEX” book to be released, gotta get a copy! Make your mark lady! We got your back at The Heat Magazine.
Much Love! One Love!

Birdman Predicts Jay-Z is On His Way Out the Game

Friday, August 12th, 2011

Cash Money co-founder Brian “Birdman” Williams recently sat down for an interview where he dished on Lil Wayne & Drake’s joint album, which he loosely compared to Watch the Throne. He says the album is still in the works and gives a fresh approach to Jay & Ye’s new album.

“I listened to a few songs [off Watch The Throne] and it feels like an older feel to me. I think with Drake and Wayne, they young. They young cats. You got 23 and 28. Then you got Jay-Z and them, who are older and really on their way out the game. Then you got Wayne and Drake and them, who are still youthful […] So, it’s two different types of music all the way across the board.”

Birdman also added that he thinks what Jay-Z and Kanye are doing is “great for the game,” but he’s confident Drake and Lil Wayne’s more youthful approach will take over.

Do you agree?

Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass” Becomes The Biggest Single By A Female Rapper In Almost A Decade

Thursday, August 11th, 2011

The Young Money artist’s song “Super Bass” is the biggest single by a female rapper in nearly a decade according to Billboard.

The song, which has been sitting on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart for 14 weeks, moved up a spot from No. 4 to No. 3, becoming the highest-charting Hot 100 rap hit by a solo female rapper since Missy Eliot’s “Work It” in 2002.

In addition to ” Super Bass,” Minaj has also made the top 10 as a featured artist on songs by Trey Songz’s “Bottoms Up” (No. 6) and Britney Spears’ “Till the World Ends” (No. 3).

“Nicki isn’t like any other female rapper,” Cash Money co-founder/co-CEO Ronald “Slim” Williams told Billboard, “We knew she had the goods when Lil Wayne signed her. She’s not a female rapper — she’s a pop star who happens to rap.”

1.91 million people have copped “Super Bass” via digital download in 2011. While Nicki’s album ‘Pink Friday’ has sold more than 1.5 million copies since it’s Nov. 22, 2010 release.

Check out the other female rappers besides Missy and Nicki who have had a top 10 hits below.

M.I.A., “Paper Planes” (No. 4; Sept. 27, 2008)
Lil Mama, “Lip Gloss” (No. 10; June 30, 2007)
Missy Elliott, “Get Ur Freak On” (No. 7; June 30, 2001)
Lauryn Hill, “Doo W** (That Thing)” (No. 1; Nov. 14, 1998)
Da Brat, “Funkdafied” (No. 6; Aug. 13, 1994)
Neneh Cherry, “Buffalo Stance” (No. 3; June 24, 1989)

Lil Wayne Being Denied a Visa is Only a Rumor (VIDEO)

Saturday, April 9th, 2011

A representative for Lil Wayne is confirming that the report that surfaced earlier this week claiming he was denied a visa, is false.

Various media outlets reported this week that Lil Wayne applied for and was denied a visa to travel abroad in Europe, due to his parole status. His representative says this is false and that he had not even applied for a visa.

It seems this week was the week for Wayne to be all over the rumor mill.  The Heat Magazine won’t rehash the rest of the events of the week, but suffice it to say, we’re supporters of Lil Wayne and wish him luck in all of his endeavors.
