A NIKE DEAL FOR KANYE!?
NAHHHHMEEEEEN? I heard that Kanye West is the man and I heard the man has a deal on the table with Nike. Initially, it was thought that Kanye had created or customized these, but now that has changed. I am not hearing that Kanyeezie is working with Nike to mass make these glowing kicks. Hes had them for the Glow In The Dark” tour but, this is crazy. My homey at Ikon Radio said they look like a mix between the Supra Skytops and the Lebron II. I dont know what those kicks look like.

DOES USHER HAVE A BONE TO PICK OVER CHRIS BROWN?
I dont know that this is a beef with Usher and Chris Brown, but I am hearing a tense situation is formulating. I hear Usher is having friction with key people that hes worked with. Also, on the flip side, they have issues with him. Well, I heard that Usher has problems because his normal, longtime A&R has and president of Jive, Mr. Mark Pitts has sort of resigned to giving Chris Brown a sound and swagger that is reminiscent of Usher. Also, I heard that Usher really wanted Gucci Mane on the song Make Love In The Club. As you know, Jeezy is on there. I herd that Usher is also upset at the the marketing and promotional staff for botching his single at radio. (Honestly, I thought it was doing rather well. At least The Game says its doing really well in Cali. Click here for The Game Part 2.) NOW, the record label has allegedly pushed back and blames his George Bush-like popularity rating with the ladies on his choice of bride. Who’s right?
HIDING IN HIP-HOP THE DOWN LOW!
I dont know who Terrance Dean, but it looks like hes using Hip-Hop to get some attention when this book is more indicative of the entertainment industry as a whole. However, if you are looking for some crazy rumors, I heard he is going to out some rappers as being gay. See a synopsis of Hiding In Hip-Hop.
Everyone wants to know the truth about their favorite celebrities’ heart’s desire. Within the masculine culture of Hip Hop and Hollywood, there is a well-known gay subculture that industry insiders are keenly aware of but choose to hide. Terrance Dean worked his way up for more than ten years in the entertainment industry from intern to executive, and has lived the life of glitz and bling along with Hollywood and Hip Hop’s most glamorous. With a family full of secrets and working in an industry founded on maleness — where one’s job, friendships, and reputation all depend on remaining on the down low and in hiding — Dean writes a revealing account of the journey of coming out from hiding.
Full of startling anecdotes and incredible true stories, Hiding in Hip Hop is not a traditional tell-all. A personal and poignant memoir, it is also one of the most provocative and honest looks at stardom and sexuality.
POOR JORDIN SPARKS!
Jordin Sparks, the American Idol, has been forced to withdraw from Alicia Keys’ highly anticipated tour and cancel all performances for the rest of this month. The singer has experienced severe vocal problems and may actually lose her lovely voice. I know she was looking forward to this opportunity. Sparks was supposed to open over the weekend in Hampton, Va. In addition to Ms. Keys tour, Jordin couldnt perform at an Earth Day concert in Washington, D.C. Hopefully, she will be back in May.
THIS IS STILL NEWS?
Sheeeeesh! Its like so whatever at this point, but if you dont know by now Jay-Z and Beyonce are indeed MARRIED. We verified it, others places verified it and once again, it is verified! They did the deed this last Friday, before it could expire. We are all liberated.
CAN I SMELL YO .
This song is in such poor taste! Riskay or somebody has a song called Can I Smell Yo D***. Dont you think its the end when you have to go that far? I think its time to go at that point.
WHATS THE REAL REASON MARY AND JAY DEADED OAKLAND?
My homey over at Shameless Hype hit me up and gave me the 411 on why a scheduled show in Oakland was cancelled on Sunday. The actual show went down Monday night, as re-scheduled. Anyway, technical difficulties were cited as the real reason, but I heard a more nefarious reason was at hand. A source claiming to be an employee for Jay-Z and/or Mary J. Blige has spilled some beans. Question: were the dynamic duo in Las Vegas on Saturday night partying and drinking and unable to make that Oakland show? Or was there some attempt to delay the show, because it wasnt sold out? I dont know. I suppose those that cared got to see their show, unlike myself.
I heard Treach of Naughty By Nature might have gotten caught out there for riding dirty. From what my intell has been telling me, Treach was riding his car somewhere in New Jersey, I would assume Newark, Orange or Jersey City. Well, Treach to this day still wears a bulletproof vest out in the streets. Details are murky, but he might have been spotted by police and vests arent legal. You know cops want you easy to slay if they have to. Anyway, I heard Treach got busted for the vest and then they found a gun in the car. On top of it all, I heard he was driving with a suspended license. Anyway, there hve been a number of shootings in the Newark, NJ area and they attempted to pin that on Treach, I heard. They soon determined that the gat that Treach allegedly had was not fired. Hes good. Guess what?
All I can say is damn!
Are you tired of the election stuff? Just wondering?
I am sick of this too but click here for an excellent interview with a priest about Rev. Wright and even Farrakhan. The media wont stop their attacks this report is from this APRIL. Props to Father Pfleger.
Did you listen to that new Nas song? Yo, thats the song I mentioned was on Grand Theft Auto video game! I didnt even know.
Never say die, eh? Sam and Bo aka The Eastside Boyz of Lil Jon are about to drop and album, I heard.
Mariah Carey hit No 1, moving 475,607 units of E=MC2.
Wendy is working with Fox on a new show that will drop in July in NY, LA, Dallas and Detroit. It will be released nationwide in the fall of 08.
Want to see all the old Making The Band people? I heard that Da Band will make an appearance on Diddys current show. Look for Babs, Dylan, Ness, Mysterious, Freddy, Sara and others on the show. I dunno I hope they dont fight!
Did Foxy Brown and Lil Kim officially dead their beef? It would seem so.
Jesse Martin is leaving Law & Order and I heard Anthony Anderson is replacing him? I dont know about that one!
I heard that Kanye West and Alexis were doomed mainly because of the pressures of the glow tour. Other people are saying that Kanye looped back around with his former flame, Brooke Crittenton. She was hot, but a lil immature as I saw it.
If you read the AHH news story on Swizz Beatz and Mashonda, it sounded nice and neat. I heard it is quite messy behind the scenes.
Nas and Kelis are allegedly going to war with the city of Miami in the form of a $100 million lawsuit for racial profiling. They felt like they were scoped out last year for no good reason.
Mos Defs ex-wife is planning a tell-all book. Sheeesh
DUDE FIGHTS OLDER DUDE
This skater dude is lucky this older dude didnt throw his belly around too much. See below: WHEN OLD DUDES ATTACK!
THE IRON MAN REVISTED
I was practicing the Iron Man dance and I noticed this song is a diss to Soulja Boy. In the song they say, destroy all the targets / no Souljah boy, hes lost it. And in the song, they got Cannon, Cannon and blast their target.
SOULJA BOY DRY HUMPS HIS HOMEY?
Check out the video. Soulja Boy actually humps on his homey. Hmmmmmm (I hope he doesn’t pop up in that book. LOL!)
THE WU OFFICE PART 2
On some real s**t, I want to encourage people to cop that new Prodigy album. I am so impressed by this CD. Hes in rare form like he was in the Shook Ones era! Damn, P! Im sorry hes in jail and not in the world to enjoy this!
Here is the latest video for Dirty New Yorker.
WELCOME HOME FOXY – AGAIN!
You know, if you missed this, you have to see it. Its pretty good. The AHH team put this together and Foxy even busts a free style. Fresh out of from prison, Foxy Brown went to church for a prayer at St Pauls The Apostle Church last Sunday. She prayed a lil more and then I heard she went to the church gift shop for a lil shopping. Rumor has it, Foxy tried to buy about $200 worth of stuff from the church and realized she left her cash somewhere. Well, her bodyguard acted like a human ATM and gave her the money.
MICHAEL JACKSON AND STEPHANIE MILLS USED TO DATE?
This is wild, but MiJac didnt tap S.M. I see you, MJ getting that kiss!
