Troubled actress Amanda Bynes has made it clear that she wants to put out a rap album, and now her dream just may come true.
HipHollywood spoke with Dan Herman, the CEO of Chinga Chang Records, a small East-Coast hip-hop label, who confirmed a record deal with Amanda is under negotiations.
“I distribute through Sony Entertainment and asked them if it’s OK if I reach out to her and see what she says. They said go for it, so I did. Our generation doesn’t seem to have respect for the talent Amanda has, but I think she’s the perfect candidate. She can sing, dance, tour, looks good. She has it all.“
Herman got in touch with Amanda’s camp and said they are talking numbers right now, telling HH that he is expecting to get something in writing by the end of the day or early tomorrow. “My lawyers are negotiating with hers, so they can go back and fourth and settle the deal soon. This is a legit record label aiming to put out real hip-hop music. It’s going to happen.”
The 28-year old CEO says he’s gotten some positive feedback about the suggested deal claiming celebrities, including Charlie Sheen and DJ Premiere, have reached out sending good vibes. Not everyone has approved though.
“Everyone thinks I’m crazy. Drake apparently wants to fight me now. I’ve gotten calls from random numbers claiming they’re with Drake saying they’re gonna find out how gangsta I am. Who knows, I just laugh. I don’t get it. Growing up I didn’t understand why everyone in hip-hop had to be Black. Legit hip-hop can do something to shock the culture; it’s the art itself, not the color of the person behind it. With Amanda that’s what we’re gonna do, we’re gonna shock the culture. We’ll find a common ground and we’ll put out a hit record.”
If Amanda does sign the deal, we’ll make sure to let you know. Who knows? Maybe she can settle her beef with Drake and put him on a song. Or … maybe not.
Is Trey Songz Completely Out Of Control?!
Trey Songz used to be a singer known for sexually suggestive lyrics and his panache for saying “yuuuup.” Now, he may be known more as an R&B singer with a possible rage problem…
Trigga Trey has been accused of smacking a girl in the face with her own phone and now that accuser is suing for $50,000. The unidentified woman says that while at Philadelphia’s Vanity Grand Cabaret strip club she sought to get a snapshot with the singer, but he didn’t oblige. Instead, according to the woman, he pushed her phone back into her face and caused her glasses to break.
If true, this isn’t Trey’s first time getting way too aggressive for no d@mn reason. Just last year he became so upset over authorities ending his show in Detroit that he threw microphones and speakers from the stage. Unfortunately, he also injured a police officer in the process. In August, he reached a plea deal in that case and got his felony assault charge reduced to just two counts of disturbing the peace.
So, back to the fan who just wanted a photo. It looks like she’s only seeking coin and not criminal charges. And in Songz’s defense he does take pictures with some fans (see below), so maybe it was just the way she asked.
