Continuing its

efforts to infiltrate its Big Mac sandwich into Rap music, McDonalds has joined

with House of Blues for a three-week "Are You MAC Enough?" sweepstakes

from April 12 through May 2 beginning with two concert events. Fabolous will

perform tracks from his latest album Real Talk at the Chicago concert

tonight (April 11). "The [sweepstakes] gives us a great opportunity to

blend our style of music with this promotion," said Fabolous in a statement.

D12’s Bizarre is

stepping out on his own from Eminem’s Dirty Dozen rap crew to release his solo

debut Hannicap Circus. "I reveal more topics and let people know

who I am," said Bizarre in a statement. "I have a crazy-a** rap style,

a crazy a** image, but I’m really a laid back guy named Rufus that likes to

pop Vicodin and go fishing." The rotund rapper will release the Eminem-produced

"Rock Star" as the first single. "Every entertainer is weird

in their own way. It’s what makes them special. I feel like I’m just a little

more specialer," Bizarre proclaimed. The album hits stores on June 28 and

features Eminem, Big Boi, Dead Prez and Raphael Saadiq.

Sean "P. Diddy"

Combs was ordered to pay more than $21,000 a month in child support for him

and his ex-girlfriend Misa Hylton-Brim’s 11-year-old son Justin. The order,

issued April 7 by the New York Supreme Court’s Appellate Division, mandated

that Combs pay monthly payments of $21,782. Rob Shuter, a spokesman for Combs,

said the hip-hop mogul plans to appeal the decision. Combs currently pays Hylton-Brim

about $5,000 a month. He was sued by his ex-girlfriend Kim Porter when the pair

was separated, for child support for their son, Christian. Combs currently pays

Porter about $30,000 a month.

Lauryn Hill is scheduled to perform at the Taste of Chicago

11-day music and food festival this summer, according to United Press International.

The former Fugees member will headline opening night on June 24 at Grant Park.

Other acts include Clint Black, LeAnn Rimes, Santana, and Donna Summer.
