Dmx Released From Hospital


DMX Swizz Beatz

Officers in Yonkers, New York found a 45-year-old man with no pulse collapsed at a hotel parking lot, but he resumed breathing after cops performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and gave him oxygen, according to Yonkers Police Detective Lt. Patrick MCCormack.

MCCormack, who tells the Associated Press privacy laws prevent him from identifying the man, reveals paramedics gave him an opioid reversal medication, which helps with slowed breathing or loss of consciousness.

DMX's attorney Murray Richman corroborated the police's report on Tuesday (09Feb16), adding that while he did not know the exact cause for his client's health scare, he does suffer from asthma.

Swizz Beatz Alicia Keys

The No One singer, who celebrated her 35th birthday on 25 January (16), is as career-driven as ever.

"I love what I do, I love music, it’s so powerful," she told Gayle King at Hearst's masterclass, according to WWD.com "What’s becoming more evident is that I’m becoming more powerful. I’m getting more clarity and more wisdom of what’s happening in the world and how to talk about it, how to access my feelings more."

Alicia's continued confidence has translated into her new music - something that will become more evident with the release of her upcoming sixth album.

Kanye West Backtracks: 'Waves Is One Of The Greatest Albums Ever'


Kanye West Swizz Beatz

The 38-year-old rapper had previously boasted that his upcoming record is the "best of all time". But on Tuesday (02Feb16), he took to Twitter to clarify his statement.

"Out of respect for Q-Tip, Puff, Hov, Lauren, Pharcyde, Mary, Stevie, Michael, Hendrix, James, Pete Rock, Pac, Marvin... this new album is ONE of the greatest albums not the greatest just one of,” Kanye wrote on Twitter. “So many musicians touch my life and made me who I am... I want to make something great to honour my idols.”

The album hasn't been without controversy. It was originally slated for release in mid 2014, but Kanye has been working hard to ensure it's the best it can be. He has also had several changes of heart regarding the name, as it was originally called SWISH but he changed that to Waves last month (Jan16).
