*Sade is no conventional singer.
In fact, she surprisingly is inspired by Hip Hop and vice versa. The performer, who has never disappointed fans and even after a decade of missing in action, still knows how to woo the crowd.
Sade and her bandleader Stuart Matthewman, interviewed with Life+Times about what makes the group the group and keeps them going strong.

As far as keeping things unique and their style untouchable, Sade responded saying her goal is to remain different.
“I don’t want to be a one trick pony,” she said. “I like to leave what we’ve already done behind.”
But in leaving the past in the past, Sade has noticed that the fans have changed. Typically fans grow older with the music style, but she noticed there’s a growing interest with the younger crowd.
And with the youth, she admitted if she could do anything different, she would have reached out to Jay Z.
“If I could turn back time? I would have asked JAY Z to rap on ‘Soldier Of Love’ in 2010. There’s not much else I would change-the mistakes I’ve made have made me grow braver.”
Sade released their “Bring Me Home Live 2011” DVD recently, which serves as something of an ode to their good work and celebration for being on the road again after 10 years.

*Looks like there is some old school/new school ish brewing between Ice-T and Soulja Boy.
The legendary West Coast rapper explained in a recent interview that hip hop has really gone south, referring to Soulja Boy’s music and specifically his goal to produce a mini-movie remake of “Juice.”
“At some point somebody gotta stop it,” Ice-T said. It’s unclear whether he was referring to stopping Soulja Boy or stopping the beef between the two artists.
However, Ice-T obviously isn’t a fan of the movie remake idea.
“If the masses accept it, it just shows you the state we’re in,” said Ice-T, who clarified that he’s not a hater, but would never try to remake a Tupac classic.
He didn’t mention the Boy’s name but he did share that making it in the industry is a lot easier than when he was coming around.
“It would be easy for me today because it doesn’t really require any backbone or anything that comes from anywhere. If you can sing along with the beat, it’s cool.”
Again, no mention of the “Turn My Swag On” singer, but it looked as if he did take the comments personally.
Perhaps it’s because Ice-T referred to his music as “garbage” back in 2008.
Needless to say the hot headed youngster, yes, Soulja Boy, didn’t waste anytime responding to his elder, ice-T with these disprespectful tweets:
