She's baaaaaaack! Yahoo Music premiered Brandy's new video for "Right Here (Departed)" last night.  Check it out below:

It's very barren, but I think it really works for the song. I also love that Mara Hoffman dress she's rocking but not feeling the capri leggings underneath.  What do you guys think? I know the B-Rocka fans are happy.

Ever wish you knew more about some of music's icons? Well Toronto rapper Shaun Boothe (aka SEAZON) has picked up where Nas' Unauthorized Biography of Rakim left off with an Unauthorized Biography series of his own.  Shaun has announced plans to drop 12 bios in all, each focusing on a different icon. I'm posting the first one here on the Godfather of Soul – James Brown. Check it out below.

"Unauthorized Biography of James Brown"

Wow. I can't wait for the Bob Marley chapter.  Visit www.myspace.com/shaunboothe for more on Shaun Boothe.

This year marks the 10th anniversary of The Mis-Education of Lauryn Hill and Rolling Stone Magazine did a banging write up of the making of the album.  Check out the full interview here.  A previously unreleased Lauryn Track "World Is a Hustle" also hit the net this week.  Listen below:

Congrats on Brandy and her return on the scene. She deserves it, and I really don't care for her or her music. But she is a veteran in the game and has been through thick and thin. She honestly has a thicker skin then Beyonce with all the past B.S that she has endured over the last decade. The song that Monica has "Still Standing", really should of been made for Brandy. Congrats girl, you were able to walk through the fire and fan out all the smoke.

YES, Afrodisiac was a "slept On' album. That album should have went plat! Brandy, its about time.

F_CK BRANDY! She Killed a Woman. Enough said. She doesn't deserve any praise from the public. There are 2 kids with out a mother because Brandy was too busy trynna to talk on her phone while driving!!! That mother should not have died, it was only because of Brandy's carelesness that she did. Not only that, what a slap in the face is it to the family of the deceased to have no one in the DA's office prosecute or file any charges of manslaughter, whether it was voluntary or involuntary, Brandy should have been charged with something, SHE KILLED A WOMAN! So to now have her trying to come in to the spot light again is a slap in the face to that poor children. Where was Brandy before, I'll tell you where, hiding like the coward that she is. Hiding because she knows she did something wrong and because she wanted to be exonerated from all charges in the vehicular manslaughter case that she smoothly evaded. Im sick of rich people getting the upper hand when it comes to the law. I dont care if she's rich or not, she should be punished and for her to now be pursuing the lime light while two kids sit alone with out a mother is Blasphemy! F_CK BRANDY I HOPE SHE FLOPS AND HER CAREER IS OVER!!!

I agree, don't really care for Brandy and I don't know what she's been through that she didn't put on herself to have Monica song "still standing" be given to her.

I assume you are an illegal alien since you choose to call yourself an undocumented dishwasher. If so, take your law breaking behavior back to your own country.
Your attack on Brandy is juvenile and immature. The woman is a pure class act. She handled her business and took care of the situation in private. She never sought to gain public attention nor sympathy.

Unfortunately, accidents happy every day. People die every day. People loose their children to illiness and accidents. People loose their parents to illness and accidents. That is life. Get over it.

And, when you send negative energy into the universe it only impacts your own personal life experience.

Love you Brandy. Great song. Great video. Plan to buy both.

Video works for me. Meaningful and fits well with the song. It's simple and doesn't need alot of extras.

Brandy is a great artist. Much better than some currently hot artist who are overrated.

@ Mitch4000 - Well said.

We don't know what Brandy did for that family. She made a mistake as I am sure we all make every day. Her's just had a devasting result. I feel for the children and for that family, but I could only imagine that this had a great impact on Brandy as well.

I pray that the family will be okay and because GOD is great, I know GOD will take care of them. I also hope that Brandy did do something for the family.

@ both you above:
First, I am a U.S. Citizen, Natural Born, and the moiker is just that, a moniker...got your attention with it though. Second, my personal life experience is great and you know nothing about it. Finally, people make mistakes i agree, examples: they write a bad check and it bounces - you jay-walk and get a ticket - you forget to tie your shoe and you trip...those are just a few mistakes, if you are ill thats unfortunate and I feel for that, but you dont KiLL a HUMAN BEiNG and call that a mistake, I am sorry you just dont. If I was drunk driving could i get off with just a warning because I made the mistake of drinking and driving? I dont think so. You mean to tell me that you are soooo stupid that you think if you were in the same situation she was you would get away with it? If you are under that impression then you are oblivious to the class devide that exist with in American society. She's in the public eye and the fact that she decided to deal with it in private makes it even worse. She tried to buy her way out of this and the family said, "Fuck That, we want justice not money." and you know what they got, screwed. The public records are there, go and do some research before you open your gap.

How come ppl always resort to name calling when someone doesn't agree?


Okay first, Brandy never got arrested. Second, she was not under the influence of alcohol or drugs. That's why she wasn't put away. So YOU DO YOUR RESEARCH. She even left her show "America's Got Talent" to take the time off to handle this situation. AND the family didn't exactly get screwed. Yes,it was a tragedy that they lost there child, but they wanted MILLIONS from Brandy, and the court found out that THEY IN FACT, didnt even have a relationship with the victim. I am not saying that all should be forgotten. But I am saying that I don't believe this accident was intentional. You paint her out as if she is a monster! And I guess the police believed that too because she was never CHARGED. INSUFFICIENT EVIDENCE.

And yes we all know that CELEBS have it better, but has brandy ever really been known to be in the tabloids? I mean can you even COMPARE her to PARIS, and LINDSEY and the rest of the them? I don't think she meant to "kill" anyone. I think it was just a UNFORTUNATE EVENT.
