First, the coolest of the news for Big Sean: he graces this mural in his hometown of Detroit with fellow D-Town artists Mike Posner, SAYITAINTTONE, and Earlly Mac. That's a "Mama we made it!" moment if I've ever seen one. The mural looks dope! Congrats to all the artist involved.
One more Big Sean note: he spoke with MTV about working with Eminem after it was revealed he was in the studio with him last month. Sean says the collab will be a "Detroit classic" and is not sure whose album it'll appear on just yet. Watch the interview below.
A couple more news and notes: DJ Paul confirmed to HHDX that some Three 6 Mafia members are reuniting for a new group called Da Mafia 6iX. They all are: Gangsta Boo, Koopsta Knicca, Lord Infamous and Crunchy Black. Here's DJ Paul on talking with Juicy J:
"Given his absence in the new group, Paul also added that he has remained on good terms and is often in contact with Juicy J though they no longer collaborate musically: “We still talk. But no, I’m not on his album and we haven’t did nothing musically. But we still talk because we still own all the companies together, we still get big checks together, so we still talk business stuff but I’m not on the album."

And finally, a picture below was on Pharrell's Facebook page today; a studio session with Wiz Khalifa, Akon, Kelly Rowland, and Amber Rose was there. I thought I saw a photo of this before, but nevertheless, here it is. Should be a good collab.
Wiz Khalifa and his expecting fiancee Amber Rose cover the new October/November issue of XXL as revealed today. The mag has a preview of their interview, which talks about their love for each other, the baby on the way, and more, as seen here.
Wiz On Recording His New Album With Amber At Home:
“I just gotta do it. The most important thing is knowing that she is there and I have to tend to my babies. This is my first child ever in life. I gotta go hard at everything. As hard as I go in the studio, I gotta go just as hard taking care of my baby and making sure she’s alright, and I’m spending time with her and she doesn’t feel neglected.”
The first news from tonight's VMA's is that Wiz & Amber have confirmed that they're having a baby. Congrats to the couple who also got engaged in March! The quoteable from Wiz below, with more from the VMAs coming to the Blog throughout the night.
“Well, Sway, you know you my brother man, so we had to do it with you first and we had to do it with the whole world, and just let everybody know that we’re expecting a beautiful young baby. We’re having a baby.”
In bonus Wiz news, his upcoming album, O.N.I.F.C. is no longer coming out September 18th, but instead on a TBD date. He did announce a new tour - the 2050 Tour - and tickets go on sale this Friday. More info/dates at WizKhalifa.com.
