HIP-HOP 4 HAITI
Shout out to everybody that did Hip-Hop 4 Haiti on Saturday Night! I heard it was a glorious affair in NYC that symbolically represented the possibilities. AllHipHop was at the event in New York, it was a part of over 30 events that took place across America. Congrats to everybody that partook in the event. In NY, Naughty By Nature (seen above), Styles P, Esso, Emilo Rojas (Green Lantern’s artist), Sugar Hill Gang, Super Nova Slom, Drag On, and Saigon, among many others like Queen Mother Blakely, Black Dot and Shaka Shakur.
As far as the rumors, I don’t really have any to tell. I heard it was a great event. Here are some of the pictures from Saturday. More to come. Ernie Paniccioli took the flicks.
RICK ROSS AND DIDDY = THE NEW PUFFY AND BIGGIE?
Well, Diddy tried to get a new “Biggie” when he first signed Shyne, didn’t he? I mean, that is common information, correct? Anyway, you’ve seen Diddy and Ross hanging out like old friends at several instances. And Diddy included Ross in one of those songs from the Dirty Money project. SO, with that, I’ll tell you what I am hearing. Somebody hit me up and said that Diddy and Ross are working on some sort of collaborative album. I don’t know much more about it, other than I’m told it will come out towards the end of 2010.
NO GAME AND ASHANTI RELATIONSHIP
These rumors get crazier an crazier. I mean, it maybe time for me to get out of the game (no pun intended), because this stuff gets sillier and sillier. Nevertheless, The Game has told TMZ that there is no relationship of note between him and Ashanti.
“No, no man. Ashanti came by the studio and worked with me and Dre the other day. She’s real cool and that was it. And they took a picture of me and Dre and Ashanti and put it on the net and that’s how rumors start.”
THE GAME IS BACK ON AFTERMATH?
I have heard a lot of Game-related rumors recently, but the one that sticks out the most is that Game is AGAIN on Aftermath. Well, various people are on Twitter congratulating The Game for coming BACK to Aftermath. So, how does his work?
I could be totally wrong, but it seems like Dr. Dre is saying something to 50 Cent. They are working with Ashanti and The Game, who are both the mortal enemy of 50 Cent. And 50 Cent has been adamant about NOT doing any such song with The Game. Not sure if Dre took that some kind of way, but it seems like it going somewhere.
JAY-Z’S SECURITY PUNCHED ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT DUDE
I thought this was interesting. A guy named Kevin Frazier twittered the following:@KevinFrazier Just intvw’d Jay-Z, he was great. I reached out to touch him to get his attention and his security punched my arm
Come to find out, this fella is a reporter for Entertainment Tonight. I guess Jay is on a different level of the game now. The crazy thing is, dude had just INTERVIEWED Jay before he was punched. SMH.
CHILLI AND USHER ARE BACK? OR IS IT MYA?
Here is a picture of Usher and Mya at the Grammys. It seemed like they were actually there as a couple. I mean, it is merely a picture, but it has started rumors.
Then there is what we have not seen, but HEARD. Sources are saying that its pretty close to confirmed that Usher and Chilli are back together. Industry sources are claiming that Usher and Chilli have started dating again. Usher was dating Def Jam executive Grace Miguel but that is reportedly a wrap. They saying shes the reason for the Tameka Foster-Raymond divorce. Chilii and Usher are supposed to be taking it slow.
WAS BEANIE SUPPOSED TO BE ON THAT DIRTY MONEY SONG?
Check out the link, but they are saying that originally Beanie was supposed to be on the Dirty Money song that Ross wound up on. What do you think?
Skillz sneaked into the Grammys some how…lol
I heard Lil” Duval’s not banned from Detroit as far as Royce Da 5’9″ is concerned. He took no offense from the “Haiti/Detroit” comment last week.
Keri Hilson has admitted that she has a crush on me…I mean, Tyson Beckford.
Rumor has it, LeBron James “smashed” Kim Kardashian down there in Cleveland.
Red Cafe is supposed to come out this year, after Diddy’s Dirty Money comes out.
The Game may be looking to make a label switch!
SIGNS THE WORLD IS COMING TO AN END
St. Petersburg sucks. The people stab each other over idols. Allow me to explain. Last Tuesday night a woman ended up stabbing her boyfriend over “American Idol.” This is what I got from the local paper:
Police arrested Cynthia E. Bettis-Ware, 52, on a charge of first-degree attempted murder of Kevin Johnson, 47.
It happened at 11:22 p.m. at the Empress Motel, 1501 Martin Luther King St. N, which the couple listed as their permanent address, said police spokeswoman Jennifer Dawkins.
The couple was watching American Idol when they began arguing over something that happened on the show, Dawkins said. He changed the channel to stop the argument, Dawkins said, but she kept arguing so “he decided, ‘Well, I’ll go to bed.”’
He awoke to Bettis-Ware wielding a 10-inch butcher knife. She stabbed him five times in the back and twice in the chest, an arrest affidavit states. Police said she also severely burned Johnson with hot cocoa.
Johnson took the knife from her and ran to the motel parking lot, Dawkins said. Bettis-Ware chased after him with another knife, she said.
I dont really think St. Petersburg sucks, but it sure sucks to be that dude.
EPIC WIN OF THE DAY
This crazy old fool found his way to the Grammys and I SAT HOME? I lost.
BIGGIE, WE LOVE YOU!
