Ambrosia For Heads: How long did it take to complete Imperius Rex on your own after Sean passed?

AFH: Did you work closely with him on any of his other projects?

Bernadette Price: No. Never.

AFH: Sean made plenty of dedication songs and references to you in his music. He must have asked for some feedback from you during the creative stages of his other projects.

AFH: How many years were you and Sean together?

Bernadette Price: 23 years.

AFH: How did you both meet each other?

Bernadette Price: We met through mutual friends who lived in my building. He would come by and see them, and through them, we met and hooked up with each other.

That being the case, it makes sense that Cole is going to be executive producing a new PBS docuseries called Raising Bertie which follows the lives of three young men growing up in Bertie County, NC.

From the city to the country, Raising Bertie seems to demonstrate that the struggle is always real and always the same.

LeBron James Producing Comedy Series About Sneaker Culture For HBO

Sorry Cleveland, but it seems more and more likely that LeBron James is LA bound come next summer. The latest clue comes out of tinseltown where LeBron is going to be producing his new HBO project which centers around two friends who own an up and coming sneaker store in Los Angeles.

The half-hour single-camera comedy about the insanity that surrounds the sneaker culture phenomenon that’s taken over the world seems to be filling a part of the culture that’s yet to be explored by a television series. If done right, it should be a smash. And with LeBron’s Nike connect who knows what kind of original sneakers and designs will make their debut in this series. Don’t expect Big Baller Brand or Kyrie’s to get any shine though.

Though the project has yet to be named according to Highsnobiety the series is going to be written by Shawn Wines (High Maintenance) and Lemon Andersen (She’s Gotta Have It).

No word on when a pilot might air but best believe sneakerheads around the world will be glued to their tubes and tablets when it does indeed debut.

Everybody thought [Dr. Dre] would be doing the records, but Daz pretty much did the whole album,” Suge told in an interview that was published on Monday. Read the full story at MTV News.


Is Tyga Producing Tracks For Scott Disick?


By Jocelyn Vena

These days the only people Scott Disick is keeping up with are rappers.

He has already collaborated with Kanye West, appearing in his short film for the Yeezus track, “New Slaves,”  and now it seems like Disick might be tipping another toe into the hip-hop pond.

The reality star and Tyga were spotted out together in Los Angeles Thursday night at Beverly Hills hotspot Hakkasan. And that’s where Tyga revealed the details of their upcoming collaboration. (Mind you, we’re pretty sure he was joking.)

“Scott’s coming out with a new rap album,” Tyga told the prying TMZ camera man. “I’m producing the whole thing,” he added with a smile on his face. Disick remained pretty quiet throughout the whole thing, but did smile here and there. After the back-and-forth, Yeezy’s close pal, Scott, and Tyga drove off together, leaving the world waiting for their collaboration to drop.
