In a similar new school helps throwback story, J. Cole will be producing a track on the upcoming TLC album. The North Carolina rapper and producer said, “I was such a fan of theirs growing up. I still am. It’s like when I made ‘Crooked Smile,’ I instantly thought of them because not only did I miss their voice, but they had these huge positive records, like ‘Unpretty’ and ‘Waterfalls.’ And I was just like, ‘Man, it makes too much sense. I gotta have them on a song like ‘Crooked Smile.’” Please be better to TLC this time, y’all. I remember how the world heard the Lil’ Jon—produced TLC track “Come Get Some” and went about their business as if nothing ever happened. [Billboard]

When you’re interviewing Naomi Campbell, mind your manners and escort yourself out of her personal life. That’s one lesson a journalist for Britain’s Radio Times magazine quickly learned when he tried to ask her about her ex, billionaire Vladimi Doronin, and Nay Nay interviewed the interview just as fast. The journalist in question, Kirsty Lang, explained: “Before I get half the question out of my mouth, she cuts me short by holding out her hand like a policewoman stopping traffic. The two PR men sitting in the corner jump up and start to usher me out… My audience is over.” As the da baddest [redacted] once said, “Diamond princess, just mind ya business.” [EURWeb]

Drake and Chris Brown have made peace and may potentially make music together. The Toronto-bred rapper watched the Tappahannock native’s set at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas last weekend. The two hugged, drank and probably threw shade about Rihanna. Don’t roll your eyes: It wouldn’t be the first time for either party. Speaking of, how long before a peace summit is scheduled between Rih Rih and Teyana Taylor? [Page Six]
