LAURYN HILL’S DREAM TO COME TRUE?
Y’all know, Lauryn Hill is as much of an actress as she is rapper/singer, right? Well, I hear there is a full movie version of Rita Marley’s 2004 autobiography “No Woman No Cry: My Life With Bob Marley” on the way. The movie will chronicle their rocky 15-year marriage until Bobs death in 1981. You also know that Lauryn is very “into” the Marley Family in many different ways. So, Rita Marley is already looking to get Lauryn Hill to portray her onscreen – with no audition! All of Lauryn’s kids are from Rohan Marley so I am sure she and Rita can swap stories – like father like son!
In other Fugee news, Pras has optioned the film and TV rights to “Dark Oz,” a comic book trilogy based on “Wonderful Wizard of Oz” by Frank L. Baum.
SUGE KNIGHT IS NEVER GIVING DRE “THE CHRONIC”
Check this out. I don’t know the legalities about it but it is not looking good for Dr. Dre EVER getting the masters to the Chronic. Wendy Williams and Charlemagne interviewed Suge and he made it clear Dre wasn’t going to get that album. Also, he dismissed the rumor that he got beat up by a soap opera babe. Time for Dre to make a new Chronic with Detox.
HIP-HOP IS NOW WRESTLEMANIA?
Shout out to DJ R.o.B. from Vallejo, CA, who confirmed out worst fears! People have long criticized Hip-Hop for being the new WWE (or the WWF for the older folks). I am not big on wrestling, but he has informed me that Hip-Hop is going to be represented in a big way at Wrestlemania this year. Thats right! We saw Floyd Mayweather bust the nose of the Big Show. To survive, Money Man is going to need some help and so he is reportedly pulling 50 Cent in to duke it out when he is in the ring. Also, there is a Bunnymania match, where all females will wrestle each other. Snoop Dogg is supposedly going to be in that one. John Legend is going to be singing the National Anthem for the people. Also, the claim that Mayweather got $20 million for his acting, I mean, wrestling appearance is a hoax.
THE WIRE ENDING
If you didnt hear it yet, HBOs The Wire is coming to an end and the last episode is on Biggies Bday of March 9th. The 90-minute episode is driving people crazy, because it is not coming on early on the On Demand platform like the rest of the season. Why? I heard that people from the show (producers) said that the early previews were spoiling the show for so many people. I know for a fact, the episode of _____ getting killed messed it all up. And when ______ found out that ______ was an alleged snitch? Game over for ____. Anyway, this is all good I guess, but I think people deserved to get their last fix early!
THE BEST RUMORS!
I get at least 5-10 rumors that start off like this, There is a crazy rumor coming out of (Pick any city) that (Pick any rapper in your city) is about to take the whole rap game by storm. Im not sure, but I also heard that Lil Wayne signed him when he stopped through on tour and (the rapper) spit 20,361 bars for him STRAIGHT! Im not affiliated with him at all, I just wanted to let you know thats what Im hearing, fam.
DIAMOND IS SO NOT PREGGERS – BUT SHE IS COMMUNITY ACTIVE
Ahhhh I think Diamond can do it. I think she has what it takes to do this solo thing. She recently was found down in Atlanta talking to young girls about how It’s Cool To Be Smart Music Mentor Program for teen girls. This went down in the A with HOT 107.9 FM from Radio One.
Here are a couple pictures.
At the event, Diamond stressed the importance of staying true to yourself and not letting anybody take advantage you. The teen girls also identified with Diamond and respected advice on how women should act in music videos while on set or around young men.
GNARLS BARKLEY VIDEO CAUSES SEIZURES?
Oh Boy! This is a new one! According to Billboard magazine, the new Gnarl Barkley video is banned from TV. Why? You would think since it is Hip-Hop(ish), it would be because of the movie being too raw or something. No, apparently there are some strobe light effects “Run that dont pass the Harding Test. What the devil is the Harding Test? It is a set of rules in TV production that prevent images from igniting epileptic seizures.
The video is below. I dont recommend watching it if you have epilepsy.

NEW G-UNIT – “I’M LEAVING” ( ARE THEY BACK 100%?)
FAT JOE: THESE DUDES IS CLOWNS
Fat Joe goes into details about what happened or didnt happen with him and Papoose. Hes saying he beat up Pap and sent his boy to the hospital. Who do you believe? Was he defending Remy’s honor? I heard in CT, when Remy’s people got into that “dust up” Pap was all in! I’m not sure, but I do know this: there is an incredible size difference between FJ and Pap. If Pap’s jab is like Hitman Hearns, maybe! I don’t know! Also, I think this clears things up with Cassidy being some sort of alleged set-up dude (again!).
RANDOM QUOTES THE JUVIE EDITION
AllHipHop.com talked to several artists and they sent their love and condolences to Juvenile.
BG: I love Juve like a brother. We came up together as Hot Boys. Now we are men, fathers with families. I send out my prayers to Juve and his family as well as my sympathy to him. In our lives, Juve and I have seen a lot of death and lost a lot of friends too soon. But nothing can compare to what Juve has lost – his baby girl. My heart goes out to my homie and I am sure that I can speak for all of New Orleans during this difficult time: we want him to know that we praying for him, we love him and we support him through this and forever.
Trina: My prayers are with him at this time and may God continue to give him strength to deal with such a terrible loss. This is devastating for such a beautiful family all gone too soon!

Eightball of 8Ball MJG “Its crazy whats going on with these kids and guns, man. We had three school shootings here in Memphis in the last few weeks. We gotta figure out whats going on!”
SIGNS THE WORLD IS COMING TO AN END
People really hate themselves and that turns outward to others. Case in point, family and friends of a 17-year-old Los Angeles High School football star are now in mourning. Jamiel Shaw, 17, was shot and murdered on Sunday evening by gang members for apparently no reason. Shaw was a good kid, got good grades and was his teams MVP. According to reports, several colleges were looking at him. On top of it all, his mother is a sergeant on a tour of duty in Iraq. I know this isnt the time for political commentary, but you can see there is something to be juxtaposed here. Not to fan any flames or tensions, but the gang members were Latino and they inquired as to his gang affiliation. I love all people, but this Black and Brown stuff certainly has to stop. (Thanks, Panther.)
SIGNS THE WORLD IS COMING TO AN END PART 2
Check this one out from the AP:
A 3-year-old girl who had become intoxicated with alcohol has been released from a Cincinnati hospital. The girl was admitted to the hospital last month with two fractures to her left arm and bleeding on the brain. Her blood-alcohol level was 0.15, nearly twice the legal limit for motorists in Kentucky. She is being cared for by relatives along with her 4-year-old sibling, who was not hurt.
The cops are now looking for somebody to arrest. There were several adults in contact with the kid. Three words: Under The Jail. (Thanks, Lisa.)
