R&B supertsar Mariah Carey is returing to the screen in the upcoming independant movie "Tennessee" although her 2001 movie debut in "Glitter" failed.

The new movie premiered at New York´s Tribeca Film Festival last Saturday (April 26). In the flick, the multi-platinum songbird plays a waitress named Krystal who meets two brothers on a journey to find their estranged father.

"Mariah said, 'This is going to be refreshing for me; this is actually something that I want', even knowing that it was a gritty, hard shoot," director Aaron Woodley told Reuters. "Some people even told me that they forgot it was Mariah Carey when they were watching the film."

"The whole Glitter experience was very, very hard to go through, but I learned from it," Carey said in a statement about her movie debut.

"She's not a diva and she came to work - and work hard she did," added producer Lee Daniels. "Because this character is interracial and struggles with all sorts of issues because of that, I thought she was perfect," Daniels continued.

Yo! Raps has learned that Wu-Tang´s Ghostface Killah has been cut from the upcoming Marvel movie "Iron Man".

The movie will hit theaters this Friday (May 2) but unfortunatley without the rapper although the Staten Island MC was awarded to make a cameo in the film.

"Marvel and Paramount eliminated the story line that led to Ghostface's scene in Dubai," a spokesperson for Ghostface told SOHH. "Robert Downey Jr. [who plays Iron Man] was having a party in Dubai where he runs into Ghostface and they have some dialogue, an exchange about lending each other yachts and Bentleys."

"Iron Man" director Jon Favreau called Ghostface to apologize for it. "After the change John Favreau called apologizing and made a quick fix by licensing the 'Celebrate' video," Ghost's rep said. "Then Def Jam allowed us to replace the music with an original song for the movie, which all happened within 3 days and 5 days before [the] final edit."

Ghost however will be included on the movie´s soundtrack. Iron Man hits theaters May 2nd.

Soulja Boy not only had hit singles and started a new dance craze but he is busy working on his next album. The young MC doesn't stop with releasing albums and already preps the release of "Back To School".

"My new album is called Back To School", he tells MTV news. "Basically, it is really me taking it back to the basics. It's time to start studying again. Make it happen, man. ... The time I drop the album, everybody is gonna be going back to school. My fans are 21 and under. That's what I'm focusing on."

Soulja Boy laughs off all the suggestions that he'll be a one hit wonder and focuses on making money and his fans. He is learning the business from the likes of 50 Cent, Jay-Z, Diddy and Nelly by putting out a signature shoe, sunglasses, and a clothing line.

He is dropping the Soulja Boy sunglasses, his own signature shoes called "Yums", a cartoon titled "Bad Little Homies" about him and his friends and a clothing line "S.O.D.". The clothing is named after his record label "Stacks On Deck". He will top all that off with the "Soulja Boy & Friends Tour," featuring himself and other young acts.

On "Back To School", Soulja is open to collaborations and production from big names in the game. He produced 90 percent of his debut album "www.souljaboytellem.com".
