DJ Orange Calderón, whom we came across perusing Soundcloud, is actually one of those #rare female DJs, or as...

    Wylin' out in a hotel seems like a pretty universal concept, but when it forms the basis of two music videos released in the last few months, does it constitute copyright infringement? While he doesn't go as far to suggest legal action, OG Maco is now claiming that Beyoncé took the concept of his "U Guessed It" video and used it for her recent "7/11" visuals.  On Saturday (one...
