SNOOP IN DETROIT
Snoop Dogg rocked the legendary St. Andrews Hall last nite supported by Daz Dillinger, Kurupt, Battlecat and even Bishop Magic Don Juan made an appearance. Sporting a Detroit jacket in the venue which is still owned in part by Eminem, the Doggfather reminded a sold out venue of his legendary status in hip hop by performing his stable of hits that range 15 years. Detroit was loving Snoop who was loving them right back. The show was sold out and was immediately following a listening party for the press and DJ’s. After the show, Snoop lounged upstairs in a room appropriately titled The Burn Room. Security told the throng of fans at the bottom of the steps that there would be no pictures or autographs and no ugly girls allowed. LMAO!
DID HULK HOGAN SMASH HIS DAUGHTERS FRIEND?
Man, remember how The Incredible Hulk comic used to say Hulk Smash? Well, wrestling sensation Hulk Hogan might have taken that literally. You know The Hulkster is in the middle of a bitter divorce and it looks like a new situation with his daughter Brooke has exacerbated that. Christiane Plante, a Brooke buddy, was helping with Brookes album and reportedly did the nasty with Hulk Hogan. This allegedly happened when they were filming the reality show, but they mysteriously didnt capture any of that reality. Thats for the best.
SALES, SALES, SALES
Janet Jackson is expected to move about 180k in sales in her first week based on a one day assessment of her sales. She should be at No. 2, according to Hits Daily Double. What I found to be shocking was that Shawty Lo was looking to move about 35k, which seems small considering his big buzz.
THE FIRST BLACK COUNTRY SINGER!
I had to carve out a special niche about a country singer in Japan that recently debuted historically high on the Japanese charts. Click here to read and listen to Jero, the Hip-Hop-looking Enka singer!
Anybody looking for more information on Static Majors sudden death, click here. I got a lot of requests on it and the official news story is there.
Ashanti and her girls recently went out and partied at Prime to celebrate her new video called “The Way That I Love You.” I love that video too. See it again right here!
Did you remember the rumor yesterday? The one about Loud N Wyld Entertainment? A rap group said THEY were pissed because they paid $500 to be on a bill with T-Pain, Fabolous, Yung Berg, Sean Kingston and others. The show supposedly never happened and they supposedly didnt get their cake back. Just playing fair.
I heard Mopreme is doing his own, brand new Tupac dedication song with his new rap group. Anybody heard that?
Somebody told me that Mike Vick has had to hire some Mexican (their words, not mine) gangs to protect him in jail.
YO! My homey Mario from Jamaica is telling me that Chubb Rocks hit song Treat Em Right is now like a new record in his country. For some reason, the song has gotten some kind of new life its being rotated heavily of late.
Cheri Dennis and Jimmy Cozier (who remembers him and how Alicia Keys fame bumped him?) were seen really cozied (get it?) up recently. But I thought Cheri played for the other team?
I heard Rihannas brother told Chris Brown that he was a little too short for his sister. Foul, yo.
I reiterate. There is no way Kelly Rowland is going to pose for Playboy.
Civil Rights leader and Democratic Atlanta congressman John Lewis is now backing Barack Obama after initially supporting Hillary Clinton politically:
After taking some time for serious reflection on this issue, I have decided that when I cast my vote as a superdelegate at the Democratic convention, it is my duty to express the will of the people.
I actually am interested in hearing what hes got to say, if he is rapping himself or does he have guest rappers or if hes going to do his thing because hes a funny dude.
Parenting advice to Jennifer Lopez from Papa Snoop Dogg (OK! Magazine):
“One baby at a time. She’s going to have a good time with it. Babies are beautiful, especially having two at one time. I wish her luck, and that her babies remain safe and healthy.” [Illseed note: Only thing is, she had two babies at one time twins!]
Maxim magazine reviewing the Black Crowes new album without listening to the whole album:
“They sound pretty much like they always have: boozy, competent, and in slavish debt to the Stones, the Allmans, and the Faces.” [Illseed note: The Crowes, like Nas, rejected the subsequent apology.]
RIHANNA IN HIGH SCHOOL!
Here is Rihanna singing Mariah Careys Hero when she was still in high school. But wasnt that just last year? She looks and sounds about the same. Robyn Fenty is her real name? Damn, I thought it was really Rihanna! LOL! Check it!
SIGNS THE WORLD IS COMING TO AN END!
Triplets is a lot of kids for anybody, whether you are single, parents, old or young. Well, peep this bit of f**kery. A 16-year-old Argentine girl gave birth to a son when she was 14. Then at the age of 15, she got pregnant again and gave birth to triplets. Not satisfied with that, the young, finely-lubed sex machine went and did it again she had her second set of triplets at the tender age of 16. There was NO fertility treatment whatsoever. She is just fertile! She turns 17 on Monday and hopefully she will get some form of contraception wrapped in a bow.
SIGNS PART 2
What the blotclot is this mess right here? Racism is always ugly, but this is crazy:
Several white students in South Africa face criminal charges after allegedly forcing black campus employees to eat food that had been urinated on.
A video has surfaced which appears to show the students instructing five elderly workers to drink beer and perform athletic tasks.
At one point, the University of Free State employees are apparently forced to eat food which has been urinated on.
The rector at the university has strongly condemned the video.
On Wednesday, hundreds of black students and workers from the institution handed over a list of demands to management.
Siviwe Vamva, from the South African Students Congress, said the group was planning to call a national strike on Thursday 6 March to raise the profile its anti-racism campaign.
He said racism was also still a problem in other universities.
“It’s not only the University of Free State,” Mr Vamva said.
“We are saying that all these issues must be brought forward so that all the people of South Africa can see that racism is still a dominant feature in South African society.”
Shout out to all of South Africa. Stay Strong!
I am actually boring myself today, but read this and tell me what you think. Somebody sent it to me.
The America I Am exhibit will the largest African American exhibit EVER. They have soooo many artifacts of African American History its quite amazing. They are so large that their are only two or three museums in America large enough to hold it. I encourage all people, not only people of color, to get a ticket when and/or if it rolls through your town. They are sponsored by not only Wal-Mart, but also McDonalds, Exxon-Mobile as well and countless others.
I guess I have to go out and see whats the big deal.
MIKE JACKSONS STEADY SLIDE
Lady Drama checked in with this bit. Michael Jackson’s Neverland Ranch may be going into foreclosure peep this:
Jackson received word Monday from Financial Title Company, the trustee, that unless he pays off $24,525,906.61 by that date, a public auction will go forward in Santa Barbara, Calif., in front of the county courthouse.
Its not just the house either. When Neverland is auctioned, it will include everything: all personal property inside, all fixtures and appliances, furniture, and all merry go round type devices, any rides, games. The auction literally includes every single thing that is or isnt nailed down.
It was a time when that much money was like chump change to the King of Pop but when you waste money on monkeys, lace fronts, and Arabian getaways $25 mil may not be as easy to come by! Good luck though Mike we’re pullin for ya! You’re not a wacko or a Jacko. Anyway, there are new rumors that Neverland is going nowhere!

JAY-ZS VIDEO FOR I KNOW
I actually like this video so I hope its the real one. Kind of reminds me of something that Kanye would do. Thats Zoe Kravitz, daughter of Lenny. So artsy!
THE MOST IMPORTANT TOPIC THIS ELECTION
You think? Keyshia and Floyd. It might work if Big Show doesn’t get at Money Mayweather.
This is Wu-affiliate Moe Roc and Badu at her recent listening party.
Even though the Diddy thing is over, I haven’t stopped getting pics from models so I will just put them up. This is Dy’Sha, a lady from ATL. Ladies, I am going to get some of the zillion dudes that sent pics too. Nothing will offend Cam’ron though. Never fear.
1,000 Words. Out of the eyes of babes.
