The song broke the record for the highest radio audience ever, although it recently caused some controversy. It should be recalled that Thicke sued Marvin Gaye’s family due to lawsuit threats that stemmed from Blurred Lines.

Aside from receiving an award, T.I. performed at the 2013 Soul Train Awards. Other performances include Jennifer Hudson, Chaka Khan, Warren G. Doug E. Fresh, Slick Rick, and Big Daddy Kane.

We’re not exactly sure what the scoop is with AKOO’s upcoming “Book of Kings” project, but we’re definitely excited. If you weren’t paying attention, AKOO Clothing announced the project back on August 26th with an image that featured T.I., Joel ’40oz Van’ Fuller and Pharrell Williams.

There weren’t any other details except that Vol. 1 of the “Book of Kings” will drop soon, which probably means sooner than later. A couple of days later, AKOO released a behind-the-scenes pic with Pharrell. And, it’s been silent ever since, except for some other behind-the-scenes shots. Hopefully, it won’t be that much longer before we find out what this collaboration is all about.

Make sure that you follow AKOO Clothing for the latest updates on the publication, set to debut Fall 2013.
