In a series of candid tweets on Thursday, Weezy revealed that his long-awaited album Tha Carter V, which was due December 9th, won’t be released because Birdman and Cash Money refuse to put it out.

Doris Rowland Garrison, mother of singer-songwriter Kelly Rowland, has passed away at age 66.
“It is with deep sadness that I announce the passing of my mother, Doris Rowland Garrison,” Kelly said in a statement to ESSENCE. “She was an incredible soul who made countless sacrifices so that I could become the woman—and now mother—I am today. We humbly appreciate all the love and support and only ask for privacy during this difficult time.”
Rowland Garrison suffered a heart attack on Monday December 1 and passed away early Tuesday morning. Her death come just a few weeks after her daughter, Kelly, gave birth to her first child, Titan Jewell Weatherspoon.
When Kelly was child, her mother worked as a live-in nanny. After leaving her abusive husband, she and her daughter relocated to Houston, Texas. Rowland Garrison reportedly gave Beyoncé’s parents, Tina and Matthew Knowles, legal guardianship over Kelly when she was very young. The friendship that budded between the two girls soon led them to form the group Girls Tyme, and later Destiny’s Child. Kelly credits her mother with helping her reach superstardom.
“It was because of your strength and sacrifice that I was able to dream big,” Kelly wrote in a 2006 Mother’s Day tribute published in ESSENCE Magazine.
Our condolences to Kelly Rowland and her family.

Method Behind the Madness:
“The process of making this song was kind of intense. But then again, it always is when I am re-enacting a classic concept such as this one. It’s been done so many times over and over by a few of the greatest the game has ever seen, so if you care about that sort of thing, the pressure was going to be there. I was worried that The Beat was a little too mellow for the concept. I was scared that the cinematic and dramatic feel would be lost. But in the end, I realize that your creation is only going to be what you make it. And, at the end of the day, you have that power to make it what you want. You just have to find that power and apply it. Or am I being too philosophical??? “(Laughs)
