Gucci Mane, Waka Flocka ‘Smash The Game’ On Ferrari Boyz

Check out ‘RapFix Live’ Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET on MTV.com for more from the duo. By Rob Markman, with reporting by Sway Calloway Gucci Mane and Waka Flocka Flame Photo: MTV News Jay-Z and Kanye West aren’t the only rappers dropping a collab album this week. As soloists, Atlanta’s Gucci Mane and Waka Flocka Flame have taken their Southern-drenched sound worldwide, and on Tuesday (August 9), the duo released Ferrari Boyz, an LP Waka said was inspired by the people. “Fans were like, ‘Man, y’all need to do somethin’ together, work with people in the industry,’ ” Waka told MTV News’ Sway. “See, we could agree with one of the statements: We’ll work together, but the industry folks, they industry, you follow me?” On Ferrari Boyz, the 1017 representatives keep everything in-house. The majority of the album was produced by Lex Luger and Southside, both of whom contributed largely to Waka’s first album, Flockaveli, in 2010. As far as guest appearances go, the Ferrari Boyz didn’t call on any of their past big-name collaborators like Rick Ross, Diddy or Usher. Instead, underground MCs like Tity Boi (a.k.a. 2 Chainz) and Georgia rapper Rocko rounded out the track list. “Man, we just came to smash the game — point blank, period,” Waka said. “They chasin’ our sound, folks’ singles is on our sound, and we might as well just go ‘head and give it all to ‘em.” For Gucci, who was freed from Fulton County Jail in July after a three-month stint, working with his rap prot

 The Sound of ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2′

After looking at preliminary box office estimates, “the sound of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2″ could easily refer to screaming fans and stacking money. According to early estimates, the eighth and final Potter film grossed an estimated $43.5 million from midnight shows alone, putting it well on the way to break the single day box office record and compete for the all time three day record… Broadcasting platform : Vimeo Source : /Film Discovery Date : 16/07/2011 01:27 Number of articles : 2

My name is Megan, I’m 15 years old from Washington State and the best day of my life was July 13 th  2010. That’s the day I talked to Justin Bieber and was front row at his concert. My mom ordered the ultimate V.I.P package for my friend Kaitlyn and I. About a week later, we received the news we were sitting seats 43 and 44 in row 1!  I was thinking, no way did I get FRONT ROW tickets.. this must be a joke. To pay back my mom for the tickets, Kaitlyn and I had to do a lot of yard/house work almost every day, but it was worth it. Finally it was July 13 th ! We drove down to Everett Event Center around 12 pm. Kaitlyn and I met our friend Taylor there and our mom’s saved us spots in line as we went to the other side of the building to watch the tour buses come in. We then saw all of Justin’s dancers get off the bus, then we saw DAN KANTER. We started screaming and Dan looked up at us, smiled and waved. We then went back to the line and got our V.I.P lanyards to wear we walked into the arena and waited to go in to the sound check. We were sitting in the front row at the sound check. First the dancers came out and Ryan talked to us for a bit. Then the amazing moment happened when Justin walked out on stage. I screamed at the top of my lungs. Justin talked to us for a bit and asked if we had questions. I raised my hand super high and Justin called on me. I asked, “What’s your favorite part about performing?” looked at me smiled and said, “To see all you beautiful ladies in the audience.” I think that’s the moment where I thought I was dreaming.   After questions, Justin sang the Dan Kanter song with us and my friend Taylor and I sang at the top of our lungs and Dan gave his pick necklace to Taylor. Then a girl close to me said, “It’smy birthday so I decided to yell, “It’s my birthday in a week!” Then Justin said he will sing happy birthday to all his fans with birthdays! All my dreams were coming true, I felt like I was in heaven. Near the end of the soundcheck, the girl next to me was talking about how her granddaughter was related to Chuck Norris, so I yelled “JUSTIN!” He said, “Who said that?” and walked over to us. She said, “Chuck Norris is my uncle!” and Justin was so amazed he wanted to touch her so she got to go touch him.  After the soundcheck was over, we went to the V.I.P party were I met Justin’s dancer Marvin and got a signed Justin concert program. Then it was time for Justin’s concert. I was so amazed when we went in sat in our seats in THE FRONT ROW! After a lady gave us wristbands, we got to stand right in the middle of the front row and Kenny was standing right in front of us!  Kenny came up and tapped my hand, I still have no idea why? Justin came out singing Love Me and I was so close to him, I felt like I was on stage too. I took pictures and video of the whole concert to remember it forever. It was the best day ever! Justin bent down during OLLG and sang to me.  My favorite was That Should Be Me. Justin even came over and threw me his towel then they put me on THE BIG SCREEN!  All I can say is dreams come true…. NEVER SAY NEVER – Megan (@MeganIsHerself) Read more: My name is Megan, I’m 15 years old from Washington State and the…

Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Big Debut: Where Does It Rank?

Gaga’s latest posted the 10th-biggest week in SoundScan history. By James Montgomery Lady Gaga Photo: Kevin Mazur/ WireImage By now, you’re probably aware that Lady Gaga’s Born This Way is the #1 album in the country, selling an impressive 1,108,000 copies in its first week of release. You’re probably also aware that her first-week tally is the highest in more than six years, since 50 Cent’s The Massacre moved more than 1,140,000 copies back in March 2005. But what you might not be aware of is just where Born This Way ‘s big debut ranks among the all-time greats. According to Billboard , since the debut of the SoundScan era in 1991, only 17 albums have sold more than 1 million copies in a week … and Born This Way ‘s bow lands on the very edge of the top 10. Ahead of BTW on the list are a myriad of albums from early-2000s teen-pop sensations, including two released from ‘NSYNC — No Strings Attached, which holds the record for the biggest one-week sales number in SoundScan history (it sold a whopping 2.4 million copies in 2000), and the follow-up, 2001′s Celebrity, which sold 1.89 million in a week — the Backstreet Boys’ Black & Blue and Millennium, and Britney Spears’ Oops! … I Did It Again. Eminem also placed a pair of albums in the all-time top 10 — 2000′s The Marshall Mathers LP and 2002′s The Eminem Show — and 50 Cent and the Beatles are represented too. In fact, the top 10 is dominated by male artists: Only Spears (and now Gaga) have made the cut. And of the 17 albums to break the million mark in the SoundScan era, only five are by female artists, including Whitney Houston’s “The Bodyguard” Soundtrack, Norah Jones’ Feels Like Home and Taylor Swift’s Speak Now also accomplished the feat. So while Born This Way ‘s debut is certainly massive, it’s by no means the most massive … Here’s a look at the list of albums that have sold more than 1 million copies in a week, with sales data courtesy of Nielsen SoundScan. (And yes, Limp Bizkit is on the list.)

Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Cover: ‘American Chopper’ Star Weighs In

Paul Teutul Jr. tells MTV News he’s puzzled by Gaga’s motorcycle makeover. By James Montgomery Lady Gaga Photo: Noel Vasquez/ Getty Images When Lady Gaga unveiled the cover art for her much-anticipated Born This Way album over the weekend, even the most manic of Little Monsters seemed perplexed by her brand-new motorcycle makeover … with some even going so far as to speculate that the cover was fake . And if you think Gaga’s fans are confused by the BTW cover, well, then you should hear Paul Teutul Jr.’s take on it. After all, he designs motorcycles for a living, first under his dad’s tutelage at Orange County Choppers — made famous on Discovery Channel’s “American Choppers” — and now with his own shop, Paul Jr. Designs . Turns out Junior’s sort of at a loss when it comes to Gaga’s new look. “This chopper is very, kind of, uh, interesting. They kind of melted the motor around and stuff so it’s hard to even see what they have … they almost did a ribcage, kinda see-through in the tank. But none of it feels really smooth,” he told MTV News. “The bike that it emulates the most is that ‘Easy Rider’ bike … it has that king and queen seat, it’s got the old-school exhaust, but I can’t really tell what kind of bike it is.” Of course, aside from the assumed technical issues, Teutul Jr. said that he’s most puzzled that the Born This Way album cover didn’t go even further. Because, as he put it, what could be cooler than a full-fledged Gaga-cycle? “Looking at it, I would’ve made it more of an integration of her into the bike. It would be more seamless. In other words, it would be her and the bike morphed,” he said. “If you’re Born This Way, then it almost has to look kind of mermaid-ish, in the sense that there’s this fusion between the actual mechanical aspect and the human perspective. … It’s a little cut-and-paste looking. I would’ve done something even integrated throughout the bike that would’ve been more ‘Lady Gaga.’ “How awesome would it have been if her entire body, like, her feet actually became the axle rod for the rear tire, and her body actually formed the entire bike? I mean, it could’ve been a more flowing, freakier look,” he continued. “And that’s what we do at Paul Jr. Designs. Our full integration isn’t ‘put a sticker on it.’ Our full integration is we make that bike what the theme is intended to be. It’s about pulling off the theme front-to-back.” And to that end, Teutul Jr. said that he’d love to work with Gaga on an actual motorcycle — it’d probably make for an interesting episode of his show, “American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior,” which returns April 25 — because it would give him and his team a chance to do what they do best. “I would get inside her head on the whole project, and really be able to pull off what it is, creatively, that she would want integrated into the bike,” he said. “And for this tour, she could come out onstage and it could be a whole theatrical thing that ties around the actual album cover. I think it would be a great fit and we’re both young and creative. It would be a great collaboration for sure.” What do you think of the Born This Way cover art? Tell us in the comments!

‘Scream 4′ Stars Pick Their Favorite Death Scenes

‘What freaks me out the most with all the deaths is the sound effects,’ Emma Roberts tells MTV News. By Kara Warner Courteney Cox in “Scream 4″ Photo: Gemma La Mana/ Dimension Films For those of you who didn’t make it to the theater over the weekend to see “Scream 4,” stop reading now — we don’t want to spoil anything! For everyone else, MTV News thought it would be fun to find out the cast’s favorite death scenes in the new slasher pic, along with some technical insight from director Wes Craven. And because there are so many gruesome offings from which to choose, the results of our little poll are all over the map, despite some persuasive campaigning by Anthony Anderson. “I think the one that freaked me out the most, her name is Marielle in real life — Marielle’s death,” Emma Roberts said, choosing the bloody demise of Marielle Jaffe’s character, Olivia Morris. “It’s one of the first, and she’s the popular girl, but she gets massacred. Totally just done. “That, to me, was the freakiest, because she’s running around her room, and they keep stabbing her and stabbing her,” she added. “I guess what freaks me out the most with all the deaths is the sound effects. When you’re doing it, it’s like a retractable knife and there’s fake blood squirting out, but when you have that sound effect, it totally adds another level of horror to the scene.” Adam Brody’s favorite death involved the special cameos from Kristen Bell and Anna Paquin. “I thought that was one of the more surprising ones,” he said, before pointing to his co-star Anthony Anderson. “And then he’s got a fantastic, dragged-out [scene].” “Yeah, I’m going to say the black guy’s death in this movie is great,” Anderson joked. “I’m not going to say who it is, though, but the black guy’s death in this movie. NAACP Image Award contention. We’re going to go beyond Oscar and Emmy and Golden Globe; we’re going to go straight to the Image Awards.” When asked how many takes it took to get that one just right, Brody and Anderson joked that there was a lot of work to it. “I think they really worked that scene,” Anderson said. “They shot that from all kinds of angles.” “[There were] 30 cameras,” Brody added. “Yeah, 30 cameras,” Anderson agreed, continuing the joke. “And some of it was the super slo-mo stuff, so yeah, the black guy.” Interestingly enough, when we mentioned Anderson’s epic death scene to Craven, he revealed that the drawn-out aspect wasn’t originally in the script but inspired by a real-life medical emergency. “That wasn’t in the script,” Craven said. “I did it without announcing it to the studio. I was hoping that they didn’t fire me the next day,” he recalled with a chuckle. “It was written that the killer just comes in and pins him to the seat,” Craven explained. “I had seen this thing on television, this documentary about somebody being stabbed right through the head and they actually showed the X-ray … and the guy walked into the emergency room, so I thought it would be extraordinary if somebody was stabbed in the head and still be alive for a while.” The fact that Anderson was campaigning for his death scene to be named the best won over co-star David Arquette. “I do love a good Anthony Anderson death scene,” he laughed. “He was a little zombie-like. There was a moment of ‘Night of the Living Dead’ [in there].” Check out everything we’ve got on “Scream 4.” For breaking news, celebrity columns, humor and more — updated around the clock — visit MTVMoviesBlog.com .
