The show was called 'State Of Emergency 2' and went down at the Chaifetz Arena on Saturday night.

    R&B will always hold a special place in our hearts. If not for R&B, that first crush, love, kiss, or more might be that much less special. The fact is, today's R&B is a bit different than our parent's R&B.  Nowadays, Hip-Hop culture permeates R&B records, and the music is generally more raw, rugged, and edgy-- however, it is still important to all of our lives and ears.

    DJ Khaled has become an expert in crafting the "event" single. Always making sure to assemble an elite group of guests, the DJ has given us unforgettable crew tracks like "We Takin Over" and "I'm On One" time and time again. Generally, at least when it comes to singles, the tracks have always been primarily rap-oriented, but it seems his latest offering will be a crooner epic.

    Although his music shows little sign of it, R&B crooner August Alsina has quite the temper. We've already seen it flare up in a beef with Trey Songz and a resulting 106 & Park incident, but last night he also let it loose on some fans at his Little Rock concert. Towards the end of his performance of "Kissin' On My Tattoos," Alsina leaned back and crowd surfed for a few seconds, only to return without his hat.

    This week three new rappers entered the Billboard 200, with Future's Honest topping them all sales-wise (we'll let you be the judge on the music). Asher Roth, who has calmed way down from his College Rap days, moved under 10,000 units with his new album RetroHash, released independently. Future and Iggy Azalea also came in neck-and-neck with their respective albums Honest and The New Classic. However Future managed to top Iggy by 1,000 units, which is contrary to the projections we mentioned last week in Charts Don't Lie.
