Kanye West took to Twitter on Thursday morning for a major announcement: " June Eighteen . " And that's it -- no context, no explanation, no additional clues as to what that date might bring. Is it the release date for his new album, which Pop & Hiss reported Tuesday has been completed ? The disc's first single? Perhaps it's the due date for West and Kim Kardashian's baby. Or a wedding date. Whatever the case, West isn't elaborating (yet). IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: Remembering Kriss Kross' Chris Kelly As the hip-hop pundit Elliott Wilson tweeted early Thursday, "Ambiguity is the new press release.

It's midnight and Nas is out of patience. Hunched over his glass of Patron in the dim bar of a Manhattan hotel, the renowned rapper has been asked to explicate what he calls the greatest song he's ever written: "Bridging the Gap," a genre-bending collaboration with his father, jazz trumpeter Olu Dara.

If you're looking for laughs, ask a music-savvy friend to take a stab at some contemporary hip-hop karaoke. Besides a good dose of bad singing -- riotous impressions of falsetto-fixated rappers such as Pharrell Williams and Andre 3000 -- you'll get an entertaining earful of what sounds strangely like aural spam.

The nine young women of Girls' Generation sauntered onto the performance stage of "Late Show With David Letterman. " Flanked by a DJ and live drummer, the South Korean pop group wore lacy black mini-dresses and thigh-high leather boots, as if they were hosting a goth cocktail party. It was a rare American network television performance from a South Korean music group. The song they performed on the January show, a slinky bit of minor-key dance-pop called "The Boys," owed an obvious debt to Kelis' catcalling hit "Milkshake.

Kim Kyung-soo (Jang Hyuk) is pretty much your average bleached-blond Korean high-school transfer student with telekinetic powers acquired from a childhood encounter with an electric eel during a lightning storm. If when he speaks he sounds a lot like OutKast's Andre 3000, that's just because nearly every kid at "Volcano High," a South Korean cult-fu flick dubbed into English by MTV and premiering Sunday night at 9, has the voice of a hip-hop artist.

It's official: The Black-Eyed Peas' ever industrious rapper-producer-songwriter and all-around marketing genius will.i.am has officially exhausted every promotional opportunity on Earth. So he's arranged to premiere his new single, “Reach for the Stars,” today at 1 p.m. Pacific time from Mars. Yes, Mars -- the red planet. Will.i.am is a self-professed science, tech and space travel geek and has taken numerous opportunities to hang out at NASA facilities, including the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in La Cañada Flintridge , where students will gather for a news conference to hear the song when it comes booming out of the speakers of NASA's Mars Curiosity robot.

In a recession that's forced large malls to reevaluate leases and diversify offerings to the public, Universal CityWalk's most anticipated new tenant this summer isn't a restaurant but an upscale nightclub. Infusion Lounge L.A., which held a "first look" open-to-the-public preview event last weekend preceding an official opening Aug. 18, is the chain's first outpost outside of San Francisco, where the original Infusion Lounge has been making consistent money on dancing and bottle service since 2009 — right through the recession.
