This past weekend was the Summer Jam Concert in New York City. Everyone who is anyone was definitely in the building. And representatives of The Black Tie Affair were in effect also. We even managed to snap a few pics of Gucci Mane, Wakka Flakka, Nicki Minaj, and Fabolous. Check them out. Shouts to Nicki, I hear she lovs the blog.

First there was Whitney, then there was Beyonce', now it Monica. R&B singer, and big sister to the site Monica, sang at The Lakers v. Celtics Game 3 last night. Her rendition of the National Anthem was by far superb. Monica, who recently released her latest album "Still Standing" is truly showing the music game that she hasn't gone anywhere. In case you were living under a rock last night and missed my big sister kill the National Anthem, The Black Tie Affair is broadcasting it to you right here. And if you haven't picked up Mo's album, I need you to do it ASAP! Much love to Monica and the family.

Ever since our girl Nicki Minaj has hit the scene, everyone wants to say that she's coming for Lil' Kim's title as the freaky girl in Hip-Hop. But for the record, Nicki is making a name for herself in her own way. This past weekend, Lil' Kim did a performance were her longtime ex-boyfriend Ray-J accompanied her. Ray took shots at Nicki and Kim egged him on as well. On the other hand a NYC underground rapper by the name of Keyz fired a few shots at the Harajuku Barbie over her freestyle "Itty Bitty Piggy", featured on her mixtape "Beam Me Up Scotty". Why all the hatred toward Nicki? I personally love Miss Minaj, and had the pleasure of meeting her in Atlanta were TBTA did a feature on her B-Day even in December. But i guess its true. Everyone isn't gonna like you. And in this industry, its more than just a few. Keep Your Head Up NICKI! we love u!
Checkout the video of Keys "Nicki Minaj diss" ma was fly, but Nicki has a deal. She doesnt.
