Chris Brown Set To Head Michael Jackson Tribute Concert+T-Pain Pops Off On Jay-Z

Chris Brown is set to make his musical comeback by headlining the upcoming tribute concert to Michael Jackson in Vienna, Austria on September 26th. Chris has not performed in public since the Chrihannagate incident. The news was revealed by the King of Pop's brother Jermaine at a press conference in Vienna today. Jermaine told reporters, "Michael was his idol and he (Brown) dedicated his first number one hit in the U.S. to Michael. Chris is a very, very talented artist." Other artists on the bill include Mary J. Blige, Natalie Cole and Sister Sledge, as well as American boyband US5. The rest of the line up will be unveiled in a series of press conferences to be held over the course of this week with scheduled stops in both London and Berlin, Germany. Jermaine revealed the tribute concert, which will take place in front of 65,000 fans at Vienna's former imperial Schoenbrunn Palace, will feature a multi-cultural line up - because his brother's music touched people all over the globe. He adds, "We have many, many surprises. This is growing more and more, and we have more names to announce. We want this to be a dignified performance for Michael - he attracted people from around the globe so we need to have a diverse mix of talent."

News on T-Pain's feud with Jay-Z when you read the rest...

So T-Pain DJ'd and performed at Rehab in Vegas for Labor Day. And he took tot he mic to pop off about Mr. auto-tune disser himself Jay-Z. T-Pain said a 59 year old shouldn't be trying to dictate what's hot in rap. *snickers* He basically went on to say all rappers are trying to be like him doing all this autotune anyway. Def Jam labelees Fabolous and Rihanna were in the crowd and I hear they weren't feeling all the disses. Fab even Tweeted that he couldn't let T-Pain keep going off about his boy like that.

Shayla: Good for Chris! I’m happy for him!! Headlining the Micheal Jackson tribute concert that is actually being presented to the public BY THE JACKSON FAMILY is a much bigger deal than performing at the thrown together at the last minute BET tribute any day.As for T-…ummm…SIT DOWN. Why wasn’t he poppin off at the mouth when he was ONSTAGE with Jay-z during the DOA Summer Jam perfomance?? He is so lame. And who is he calling old? Ain’t he in this thirties??? He act like he invented the concept of Auto Tune. Roger Troutman oughta come back from the grave and slap him in the mouth for his blatant overuse of the vocoder for purely purposes. No T-Pain is pretty young he is only 23 years old! I know it's hard to believe but true...he just looks old!

Look I like Jay, but him and his greedy wife need to let others shine, their very talented, but he is not ALL that "real" rap has to offer, just like B is not all that r&b or pop has to offer... Chris Brown deserves a comeback, but on a personal note...he still should get counseling, but I love him as an artist.

Dwriter: Who cares what

Dwriter: Who cares what AutoTune King T-Pain has to say-Jay has WAY more hits than T-Pain. I will be getting BP3 no matter how old Jay is-he is still at the top of his game. Period! thank u, i so agree
scj's picture

Never cared for "Autotune"

Never cared for "Autotune" even back in the day when I was introduced to it by Roger & Zap, still don't care for it, it is DEAD TO ME, why shouldn't Jay be critical and voice is criticism of certain artist and their forms of so called "musical" entertainment? Who are we to tell me to "Fall Back, Your to old, let the youngins run this? Hell if most of us think the state of Hip Hop is dead and sorry and whack then where would it be if these "youngins" were running sh**? And since when was there and age limit in Hip Hop? Hell there should be a creative grading scale in RAP & Hip HOp with all these sorry ass folks in the RAP & Hip Hop game, Please! Jay-Z is not taking any money out of TPain's mouths and vice versa. As far as Jay-Z dissing the use of "Autotune" Hip Hop was and still is bout dissing, one-upping someone, bragging, shit talking @ sweetlove so stop whinnying about Jay-Z "knocking" another man down. And @kay p....SuperDime - While I do agree with some of your points, I have to disagree about "and write and entire orginal song without referencing someone else’s lines" Please reference Jay's 1st 2 cd's, hell just the 1st cd even, and plenty of artist pay respect to other artist by quoting from a song of theirs or copying a certain style or whatever, but I think it's fair to say Jay-Z didn't base his career nor did he become as successful as he is by just "referencing someone else's lines" the man deserves more credit than that. Now I can go back to bumping Jay-Z's The BluePrint 2 "Guns & Roses" with my man Lenny Kravitz, peep the Grav...(wink, wink)

@ pwhat? Sweetlove and Kay p

@ pwhat? Sweetlove and Kay p SuperDime PLEASE SAY IT AGAIN! Your comments hit the nail on the head with these Jay Z/T-pain comments. Truthfully, Jay Z is a bit to old to worry about what younger artist are doing what THEIR music and THEIR brand. Who the hell is he to tell others what he likes or what he don't like and that they need to stop. If you are that confident in your career why are you worrying about how others making their music. Their is enough money for everyone in this business and music sytles sales to different people. So Jay need to sit his old behind down because he is knocking someone else hustle. I think T-pain should have came out with is opinion when DOA first dropped though. And Fabulous, please go sit down and take Rihanna with you. Congrats to Chris Brown. If Hollywood is built on second chances why can't he get one. He stood up and get his punishment so people should stop beating a dead horse. Rihanna is not worrying about it why should we. And Chris is very befitting for a M.J. tribute. So good for him and I hope he makes the most of jump starting his career again.

Jay Z and T-Pain... Jay feels

Jay Z and T-Pain... Jay feels its his "duty" as veteran to let these "new comers" know what is real hip-hop. BUT - Hip-hop has always been the voice of the youth...so today's youth is loving the auto-tune shit..so be it. there was a time when JayZ's brand of hip-hop was looked down upon by the "veterans" of that day. Hip hop was party and BS - then it turned black power, then gangsta rap, now millionaire mogul "i got too much money to spend and you can never be me" rap... so really - who is JayZ again to dictate true hip-hop? True hip-hop is an evolution - never even started with profound lyricist...the very first rap songs were so elementary. give me a break "Hov" and get over yourself....(and write and entire orginal song without referencing someone else's lines - please, do it for the children)

And i will quote the “Bible” dont look down on a man unless your picking him up. You dont see Tina Turner knocking Beyonce down cause Tina is already on Top and cant be replaced, Beyonce is trying to get there and its all fair game.

Booooooo T-Pain you have no

Booooooo T-Pain you have no talent, just hush!! Jay-Z could retire and still have more money and fame than you will ever have. stop dissing and start taking notes from someone is who actually successful. your 5 mins of ridiculousness is soon up

People stay hatin for no

People stay hatin for no reason, Jay-Z old, but he right. D.O.A was an attack on lame, uncreative artist using auto-tune as a gimmick. Plus I swear when D.O.A dropped T-Pain said being mentioned by Jay-Z was a compliment o_O ?!? And what's wit the age discrimination? Jay-Z bukkin 40 doesn't mean he outta the loop. The avg. record exec ain't 21??? Jay is part of the generation that made hip-hop mainstream, so if he can still sell records & make hot tracks then that's all that matters, cuz who under 25 (wit an album out) really runnin the game right now???
BNyce's picture

T-Pain really can't talk

T-Pain really can't talk about anyone's age when he is 24 and looks like he is on the brink of 80. He is a mess. And Jay is still rapping better than people like him could ever imagine. if Jay wasn't in the game would people really want to listen to T-Pain??? Come on you've got to be kidding me. Jayz is a beast, A LEGEND, icon in the hip hop game, and he will never sit down until he decides to. And he shouldn't because BP3 shows that he still has remarkable talent, and his music is taking over the city NYC, 24/7 can't go n e where without people talking about his concert which is about to sell out the first day it's on sale. He's about to have his 11th number one studio album!! T-Pain can only wish to have the longevity and relevance at the game. While Jay can retire at this age and be comfortable with his half a billy nearly in money and assets. If T-Pain sat down he wouldn't have a dime, which is quite irnoic. Keep doin you Jay!!

Im the song we gona run this

Im the song we gona run this town, isn't auto tune used on rihanna's voice? Doesn't kanye use auto tune? I just think mr beyonce wants attention, jay-z might be a big star to black folks but in the u.k most people are like "oh beyonce's husband" until glastonbury most people didn't know his music. Good for chris brown, he made a mistake everyone behaving like he killed someone

This is what is wrong in the

This is what is wrong in the black community we cant just be happy for someones come, this is the what this man(t-pain) does to feed his family and it is positive he is not selling drugs to our kids and bring down our hoods, was why another black man (Jay-z) have to put out a diss song like this was just stupid to me, When we got all these white men hating on him (jay-z) we need to stick together as a race of people not rip each other apart for album sales. Jay-z had his time in the game for years on top why he had to result back to dissing to sale tracks is beyond me. Come on Jay you should no better then to go at people like that, T-pain is a man with kids, dont disrecpect a mans work like that his kids my look up to him and love what thier Daddy does for work.

Tpain has his style. Jay Z has his style. Tpain is on some ole ignorant ish with that comment he made though. But I do agree with him when he said come kick my butt if you see Jay Z do this...well I'm sure Jay Z will kick his own butt if he even thought about hopping around singing and dancing on stage. Thats not his style, never has been. Now I love me some TPain, but come on man. Don't get on the let me start a beef bandwagon. You're way too talented for that. If anything, you and Jay should hook up, make some hits and get that money.

ppl need to get off these

ppl need to get off these tall buildings of fake moral character. Isn't America built on second chances?? Chris made a huge mistake and he's paying his price, he's the one that has to live with this ish for the rest of his life. I'm glad he's going to do the tribute to MJ cause really he's the only one that can bring it "dance wise" next to Mike. Chris is like the Kobe of dancing, dude is the best right now but he'll never be like the King!!! Everyone is dissing Jay cause he dissed everybody else. I don't think he cares lol He has enough issues to deal with in hoping that this BP3 lives up to the hype

I Know he is scared and probably feel the effects of being an old rapper but dont try and take other people down with you. If your age is making your career D.O.A. so be it but leave other people out of it. I used to thing Jayz was better than that and didnt get into Kiddie mess. LOL!!! You are so right.

bored: I will be glad when

bored: I will be glad when all these fake no talent singers go home! Rihanna, T-Pain, Britney, Ciara, so many more now that’s it’s hard to mention all. I believe people should go off on J especially when he knows artist like Rihanna and Ciara and some more of his label mates need Autotune to survive.. That was very wrong of him to say in the first place since music is not real anymore, the music that comes out today is crazy, when you have rappers lip syncing you know it’s time to get out of that business..All these songs coming out with this nice beat, with these artist singing them terrible live. I feel J but he was the wrong person to bring it up when he has profited from it. I love DOA anyway.. OKKKKAYYYY... i agree wit u with rih ciara and tpain but why britney... imean everybody be talkin about this bitch like she aint somebody.. just cuz u may not be into pop or watever dont mean britney aint shit... she is the only one who cud shave her head... act like an ass and go completly nuts and can cum bac into the game and be the biggest feamle artist rite know... im sorry but ur facts straight britney is the shiznit... im not that big of a brit fan now... but i used to love her in the 90s.. she not that great of a singer but she can dance her ass off and make gud songs and i heard her concerts r really gud 2

Sorry, young rappers, Jay-Z's

Sorry, young rappers, Jay-Z's whole "Blueprint" thing was a trick. These albums don't show a path to success. They show how Jay succeeds, why he cannot be duplicated. And "The Blueprint 3" (Roc Nation) is the most untouchable of them all. Put aside that no one else could nab Kanye West to produce the bulk of the tracks or get Alicia Keys to sing a memorable hook. Though they're part of what makes this so special, in the end, it all rests with Jay, whose rhymes are as pointed as ever and whose flow proves to be more flexible than ever before. He out-Ems Eminem on the quirky "Thank You." He outpaces hip-hop's leading edge by twisting the Europop-influenced "What We Talkin' About" and "On to the Next One" around his style. But most important, he tops himself, both as he takes a victory lap as hip-hop's reigning champion - on "Run This Town" and "Empire State of Mind," where he declares, "I'm the new Sinatra" - and when he pushes for change. Though Jay-Z is known for his party anthems, he's actually at his best when he speaks out on what's irking him - whether it's his campaign against AutoTune on the hard-hitting "D.O.A. (Death of AutoTune)" or the takedown culture on "Hate," where he and West egg each other on, pushing each other to try wilder approaches. But it's "Off That," where Jay takes on race-baiting and pushes back at Bill O'Reilly and Rush Limbaugh, that shows his best skills. It's both pointed ("It's 2010, not 1864," he deadpans) and still lighthearted enough to remain accessible. It would be great if that touched off a run on well-crafted, well-meaning hip-hop, but Jay-Z's latest "Blueprint" is so good that it's almost impossible to follow. "The Blueprint 3" comes out TODAY!
