BIG TIME REST IN PEACE
From what I understand, Donnie Simpson (legendary BET host) Big Tigger (another legendary BET host) and Stephon Marbury (legendary ball player) all lost their fathers over the previous weekend. I dont know all of the circumstances surrounding this, but that pretty crazy. Their deaths were not related in any way, as far as I know. We should send a R.I.P./Thank you since the fathers (and mothers) gave us their super talented sons.
DEHAVEN: THE SUBJECT ON JAY-ZS IT WAS ALL GOOD JUST A WEEK AGO?
Jay-Z: is he such a bad guy? I jokingly made reference to the song A Week Ago, (From Vol 2.) but I am hearing that that song is actually about Jay-Z and DeHaven! I dont know! But here is a rumor from what seems to be an informed person. The person decried the notion that Jay-Z doesnt take care of the homies. We all know that Jaz-O and Sauce could have signed with The Roc, but choose not to. Now, my source said it was, because they didnt believe in the Roc, but I heard that they couldnt rock with the paperwork. Jay-Z was used to that old school money and was insulted. Remember, Sauce was writing joints for Puff and had gotten a Grammy by this time, I believe. Anyway, think on that.
SPICE ONE: IT WAS ALL GOOD JUST A WEEK AGO!
Some of you might not remember Spice-1, one of the realest rappers ever! I mean, I wasnt a huge fan, but the respect was always there. Well. Spice has been shot and critically wounded. Apparently, he was shot two times and one of the bullets nearly hit him in the heart. Times are crazy, for real! Get better Spice!
R.KELLY DISMISSING NE-YOs CLAIMS!
So, I have a homey that has Northern VA on smash, so it seems and he hit me with a few good rumors.
He told me that R. Kelly denied Ne-Yos claims that he took all the dressing rooms and left none for the others singers.
He said that Omarion doesnt sex his fans or girls that he doesnt know.
Supposedly, Tyson Beckford is known to get busy with an L or seven.
STUCK ON THE FOULNESS?! JANETS NOT TOURING?
Everybody got all hyped up from The Jacksons doing their thing next year all of them on tour! Word! Even Michael and even Janet now no Janet! Rumor has it, the 40-city world tour was going to be the grand daddy of all the tours! Now, I am not going to get all crazy and mention J.D.s, because hes just written a serious blog about the rumors. Lets just say that it would appear that Janet is just going to work on her next album instead. I heard L.A. Reid is the one really pushing this album along, not Dupri.
DEF JAM LAYOFFS?
I dont how factual this is, but I am getting word that there have been a series of major layoffs at Def Jam. Well, I have to wonder why and who? I mean think about it, the MUSIC Def Jam is putting out right now is actually pretty good. Im not mad at it one single bit (Jay-Z, Freeway, Kanye, Ghostface )! So, I am hearing A&Rs got the cut and some others. I mean, this isnt really something that I care about but it does come at a bad time because of the holiday.
YOUNG CHRIS TAKES BIG BROTHER TO THE NEXT LEVEL!

JIM JONES GETS SERIOUS AND EMOTIONAL
Yo, I have a newfound amount of respect for Jim Jones after seeing him talk about how AIDS and drugs have affected his family. Shout out to Jim!
WHERES CAMRON NO. 7,002.5
My homey, seen in the pic below, spotted Camron the same day beef jumped off between Plies and Trick Daddy in Orlando. He bumped in to Cam (not literally) when he was getting his car valet parked. He said that Cams crew pulled up in the Pink Range and Cam pulled up in a white one (let me find out). He said Cam gave him a copy of the mixtape and its fire (I still havent heard it). Anyway, I need to get that mixtape, I keep hearing its good stuff.
(Pushing mixtapes must be hard. Caam looks kinda tired here.)
THIS KID TELLS ME ABOUT ANGEL LOLA LUVS BOO-TAY!
I got a lil chuckle out of this young fellow. His name is Coop and he told me, Im here to tell you the Angel booty is real, even with injections or implants see still wouldn’t get a booty like that. Ive asked many of my family members that are in the plastic surgery field and they say its real. I totally love the way the Hip-Hop Nation comes together to determine of Lolas butt is real. Lola aint talking, but shes gone on record that she takes all the speculation as a compliment saying she is THAT close to perfection that people consider her a faker!
(Is it me or does he looks like he could be Scott Storch’s son? Step your glasses game up, Coop!)
I DIDNT HEAR THIS
But Black did. Here is what he said 50 Cent balked about on HowardTV:
I recently subscribed to Howard Stern TV and watched his 50 Cent interview. Howard asked 50 about the rumors about him and Ciara and 50 said he can’t answer that (laughing while he said it). 50 was asked if he hooked up with Paris Hilton and he definitely killed that rumor. But when Howard asked about the video he seen 50 in with “a hot piece of ass” (and they showed the picture of Meagan Goode, 50 was laughing and saying he can’t answer that and Howard said I can tell you did. Howard went on to ask him why he never settles down when he gets “hot ass chicks” and asked 50 if he had a trust issue with women, and 50 responded that he remembers when b****es ain’t think he was as cute before (“Back then they didn’t want me, etc….”). So Howard then try to ease in “So how many times did you sleep with Meagan before you dumped her?” 50 responded with his laugh saying I can’t answer that Howard.
Why is Eddie Winslow allllll in the video rubbing on Superheads feet? Blah!
From what I understand, even Def Jam didnt know that Jay-Z was going to pop up at the Kanye West show in Manchester, UK.
Romeo played his first basketball game of the season for Beverly Hills High School last night. I thought he was already in college!
Robert Kardashian Jr and Cheetah Girl Adrienne Bailon are getting married? Yo, I thought the Cheetah Girls were for lil kids!?! They cant be getting married and having kids!
C-Gutta1 from the Ill Community hit me off to some rumors that hes heard. Here they go: There is a New Street Fighter Film coming out with Chung Li. A Max Payne featuring Marky Mark Wahlberg as the lead? Tekken: The Movie? A God of War with Djimon Honsou (Amistad, Kimoras man and former Janet Jackson dancer). Shout out to the IC!
Who knows about this? Keisha told me that Lil Wayne and Lauren London used to date before she became the star she is today and that he makes reference to her in the song :Youngen Blues verse 2.
Luther Vandross owned all sorts of riches and his objects like diamond watches and mink coats are going up for sale. Luther was one of a kind.

Quincy Jones on meeting Tupac after Pac dissed him [Click here for full interview]:
Anyway, I wasnt worried about [Pac having a gun]. I was raised in Chicago, honey. Are you kidding? Thats the OG ghetto. So I said, Pac we have to talk a minute.
RZA on why Ghost should have pushed his wig back [Pyro Radio]:
The wise thing to do is that Ghost should have held his record till next year because he put out an album last year and it didn`t really have the same kind of success it usually does so therefore you need to take a chill pill and get your stocks back up, get this Guitar Gently Weeps video which is a big big thing for you and come back like yo it`s Ghost.
GHOSTFACE right back atcha [AllHipHop]!
Ni**as still love RZA. Its just that…he just did a few f***ed up things. The album could have been a little more better, but I guess to each his own.
Styles P on how J-Hood Can Get Off D-Block [AllHiphop]
Make a public apology the same way he went on the Internet and acted like a f*cking buffoon with the dragging of and disrespecting of the chain. Tell him to get on the Internet and make it nice and humble and hell be right off.

SIGNS THE WORLD IS COMING TO AN END
I recently got a story that theorized that the AIDS virus came from Haiti, which refutes the notion that there was a sexually active male flight attendant spreading it coast to coast. I see somebody is trying to pin something like that one the people of Haiti. THIS, I dont believe. I believe the powers are trying to re-write history AGAIN! Wyclef is with me. He told the AP, World AIDS Day (December 1) is an opportunity to evoke the progress and challenges that Haiti must confront in order to fight this epidemic, but also the recent news that unjustly targeted our country and showed serious prejudice. Michael Worobey, an assistant professor of evolutionary biology at the University of Arizona, has released a report saying that AIDS actually came into power in 1969 and started running rampant in America in the 1980s. Like I said, sounds like they are trying to pin this on a voiceless community. Tell em Clef!
