THE NEWS IS MORE INTERESTING THAN THE RUMORS!
A LOT happened yesterday. Here are a few headlines:
BETS NEW RAP SHOW?
I am not sure if BET is looking for new hosts on 106 & Park, but I heard a rumor that might have been confusing things. From what I heard, BET is looking to do another Hip-Hop show. I did hear that they had open casting calls for that as well. It is speculated that this show will replace the ailing Rap City.
CONGRATS TO MONICA AND ROCKO!
From what I hear, Rocko and Monica have been blessed with the birth of their second son named Romello M.Hill. He was born Jan 8th. I heard the lil’ tike is very cute. Shout out the ATL crew on getting another member to the family.
I HATE ALLHIPPITYHOP! (SIKE)
Aw come on, people! I cant even be tongue-and-cheek with you! I am still here. Email is the same. Myspace is the same. SMH at somebody starting a new blog saying they are me. If I ever get fired, you know the world is coming to an end! (I dont know, I might get fired one day, because thats what happens to employees from time to time. But, I am here still. I love the love though.) Thanks a lot! AllHipHop is the best site on Earth! If I left here, I dont know where I would go! Id just start my own site, which I plan to do anyway. Even if I do that, Im going to be here. AllHipHop is like Jay-Z and Im Bleek! 50 and Yayo! Batman and Robin!
BOBBY BROWN ON THAT WHITE?
It looks like Bobby Brown has some coke head charges coming his way from the Massachusetts State Police. It seems they want to charge Brownie with cocaine possession, but dude skipped a court date the other day. Apparently, they caught him outside of his house after a disturbance and they identified some coke in Browns 2004 Navigator. Now, they want him to show up.
DAVE GET SONNED?
Dave Chappelles personal life is just that personal, but a few days ago, it peeped out in New York. Honestly, I skipped past this rumor when it happened, because Dave is so cool. But I gotta do what I gotta do. They saying that his wife Elaine screamed on Dave in public over another woman. The Coffee Shop in Union Square ois a hot spot and a witness said the couple was there eating with their sons. Dave allegedly (ALLEGEDLY, because I am riding for the homey!) went out and had a chat with model Geena Rocero. This prompted his wife to go ballistic on Dave. Wifey needs to chill on that insecurity.
MORE ON THIS JOE BUDDEN STUFF
I am not sure if Shady Records is on the table with Joe Budden. From what I understand Eminem may have a copy of Mood Muzik 3. A person over there that seems to know whats up didnt know about the alleged deal. Im not sure, but I can say that Em just got out of the hospital and is maybe thinking about his health issues more than anything else. More on this as it develops if it develops.
LIL WAYNE HMMMM
I have a guess. Lil Wayne will never drop another CD. I know thats not realistic, but I think he is making mad money doing all these shows and guest appearances. Hes got all the press and acclaim that way. Anyway, Wayne and Gucci Mane had a concert in Columbus, OH a few days ago. They said Bizzy Bone came out to show them some love. Some of the people I know that saw it, said that he came from outt of nowhere and was totally unexpected. It might not have been a good look for Bizzy based on the comments I got from them. Bizzy just needs to get back with the other Bone Thugs. They had a tight jawn with Akon last year.
Anyway, a recent report said that Wayne just wrapped a new video, is writing for Dr. Dre and wants to work with Mariah Carey because he likes older babes.
I know I am wrong.
For whatever reason, the link didnt take on Jeezy so click here to see the mess.
I dont know if this is just publicity for the show but, Paula Abdul supposedly had a nervous breakdown for 10 minutes at an airport.
There is a terrible rumor that Boosie was killed in his neighborhood. I doubt there is any truth to that or I would have heard it.
Wendy Williams is missing from the airwaves of Philadelphia for some unknown reason. I heard some grumblings and poof she was gone! Ill find out!
I dont like T.O., but I certainly dont condone calling him the N-Word on TV. Click here to see it.
Mariah has reportedly said those comments werent true that she would rather sing with a pig than J.Lo.
RANDOM QUOTES: THE PRODIGY EDITION
Prodigy: Let me start off like this, I dont like talking about ni***s like Saigon, and certain ni***s I got beef with. Its like Im giving them free promotion.
Prodigy: My kids know whats going on, they know Im going to jail for a minute. They know Ill be right back. Its nothing, I got people in jail thats never coming home.
Prodigy [quoting a gun salesman]: If you dont teach them the power of the weapon, then they will be curious and thats how kids accidentally shoot themselves or shoot somebody.
Prodigy: I know for a fact that a super power that exists on this earth blew those buildings up to change American and international law so they can say youre a terrorist and lock you up for simpler reasons than they were used to years ago.
Prodigy: I never really committed no violent crime. I always kept a gun for protection; Im not a violent person. I dont go out starting trouble, I do music everyday.
BENZINO COMMENTS ON THE XXL CHANGES IN THE MAGAZINE WORLD!
Mahoganygirl.com got in touch with Zino and Dave about the recent changes at XXL and here is what Zino had to say:
Karma is a muthaf**ka!!! The little b***h should have been let go years ago if you ask me When I heard about this I thought it was beautiful He doesnt represent Hip Hop or the culture anyway. XXL and all the editors over there are just a copy cat of The Source and now them, Source and Vibe are feeling the f***ing pinch .Now Yellow N***a can go get a job sucking f**king Jimmy Iovine since thats what he was doing anyway G Unit is over and so is Elliot. If I see him in the streets Ima put a foot in his a**. Ima do that for Hip Hop
KRS said, “Hate is a very, very big mistake.” Lets let the anger go in 08!
NEW GANGSTA RAP! IN MY HOUSE SHOES
SIGNS THE WORLD IS COMING TO AN END
I am telling you, people have lost 1) their minds 2) hope and 3) connection to reality. This Sign has gone across the world and back, but I cant let it slide. This mans roommate died. What does he do? 911? What? No way. The man put his buddy on an office chair and wheels him through the streets of New York City to a check-cashing store. And? Yes, the friend and another associate tried to cash the dead mans $355 Social Security check. Here is some color from the Associated Press.
“The witnesses saw the two pushing the chair with Cintron flopping from side to side and the two individuals propping him up and keeping him from flopping from side to side,” a Brown said.
The men left Cintron’s body outside the store, went inside and tried to cash his $355 check, Browne said. The store’s clerk, who knew Cintron, asked the men where he was, and O’Hare told the clerk they would go and get him, Browne said.
A police detective who was having lunch at a restaurant next to the check-cashing store noticed a crowd forming around Cintron’s body and “it’s immediately apparent to him that Cintron is dead,” Browne said.
The men face CHECK FRAUD CHARGES for this heinous act! Where is the you cant wheel your dead friend and try to cash his check felony?
A reporter named Chidi Ogbuta got a live sized cake made of herself. That’s right, and people had to eat it. The Best Week Ever posted a blog on it and cracked me up with the pics. See below. A LIFE SIZED CAKE. That dude is like, “WTF have I gotten myself into?”
This is an oldie, but I crack up every time I see it.
CUBE IN THE A-TEAM!
In our recent interview with Cube, he said he was down to play B.A. Baracus if John Singleton goes and messes up the A-Team in a movie. Just kidding, John! Mr. T is not to be replaced!
If you remember back a ways back I had the homey Freeze Fiyah helping me out with the rumors. Freezy was cool, but he has moved on. With that said, I think I want somebody to offer a fresh voice here in the rumors like back then. I mean, if you are nice with your rumors, and can write better than me, then holla at me and put “Rumors Sidekick” in the subject. I am not leaning to men or women, but I think a female could balance out my mania.
TOMORROW, WE LOVE YOU!
