TODAY’S RUMORSRIHANNA: THE LUPE FIASCO OF R&B?
am hearing Rihanna has a new hobby: skateboarding. I heard the dime was
“doing an Ollie” on a dime in Canada with her man. Apparently, she was
doing some touring on the Glow tip and took in some skating, dude. I
heard she was doing pretty well for a new jack to the world of
skate-or-die. Rumor has it, her handlers were petrified that something
might happen to her.
HE’S LISTENING, BARACK!
I keep making this mistake. Trying to help some of the fledgling artists that are trying to make it in this world. The problem comes when I get flooded with all sorts of emails. I cant even sift through my regular email, because almost every one is from a rapper. Now, Im not hating I love Hip-Hop from the underground up, but Im the rumors dude. If you email me, make it about a rumor or something you heard in your hood about an artist people care about. Love is love, but if I dont respond to those email, its because I have a job and its not Breeding Ground.
STOP THE PRESSES .QUEEN PEN NEEDS HELP!
I guess many of us though Queen Pen was out of the woods after she and her people said that she was OK and had actually fought her boyfriend off her. NOT! Her man is still running the streets of BROOKLYN after he brutally beat a female up in front of her own kids. So, her man beast is STILL out there. According to Queen Pens allegations, he is really dangerous and not in the good way.
Kendall Wicker is the name and according to Queen Pen, here is his game.
-Held a machete to her neck
-Beat her unconscious
-Smashed her Grammy, thrashed her art work and apartment
-Threatened to kill her
She is still scared that hes going to pop up and kill her. NYPD ya got Sean Bell. Do the right thing.
KANYE WEST AND NICK CANNONS EX?
Selita Ebanks and Kanye West? Acccording to reports, Selita Ebanks might have made a come up that makes Nick Cannon look like St. Nick. For those that dont know Selita is Nicky Boys ex-fiancé. A pretty hot model, Selita partied with Kanye West on Saturday night at Tenjune in New York. Now this could be a bad rumor, but they reportedly sneaked out and sought to get something to eat. Apparently they were very cozy and close. Thats about it, folks.
GOTDAMN THAT DJ MADE MY .DAY?
YOOOOOO there is a rumor that Lil Waynes Carter III has already been downloaded over 1 Million times. I have NO idea how they managed to arrive at that number. Is there now a Bootleg Soundscan? NOT.
IM RIDING WITH JIM THIS TIME!
Jim Jones is charging that the cops harassed him after the concert at Summer Jam. I believe him! “As you know, I just got into it with the police and had an incident where they pulled a gun out on me for NO reason. Undercover. And I didn’t know who the fuck they were and they didn’t come out with any badges until after they had sprayed mase, then they want to say they are police. S**t is crazy.”
As I was writing this positive note, Ske Cone sent me the following letter.
What up iilseed? Im writing this email in regards to summer jam. What up with your boy Jim Jones getting sprayed with mace by the police backstage? Then crying like a little b***h talking about they they trying to Sean Bell his a**. I guess wasn’t too wise to talk slick to the police. I guess he’s too fly to talk about that s**t.
CHUCK T WOW
When I first heard DJ Chuck T had leaked The Carter III, I didnt know that he was going to go hard and co-sign it with a signature. But, he did. Here is part of the statement thats been online.
“Lil Wayne said f**k mixtape DJs… so now I’m about to show that boy the meaning of bootleg. I’ll be damned if I let (anyone) get away with saying f**k me without him facing some type of repercussions, including Lil Wayne… Don’t buy the new Lil Wayne album. Download it for free!”
SHAWTY LO GETS CALLED OUT!
Why are they calling for peace at the Thug Awards? Step Yo Game up!
SHARON STONE DISSES DIDDY?
Is this lady on crack? I heard she was trying to collect money for charity and Diddy only had a Black Card by American Express and she made the following comment:
RANDOM QUOTES: THE USHER EDITION
My family members sent me a real nice interview with Usher, compliments of RWD, and I love the way Usher is flicking away the assertion that he should be a gigolo. Here are some of my favorite quotes.
RWD: Have you had the call to work with Michael Jackson yet?
No, but actually I spoke to Michael yesterday. I ran into his attorney in the lobby of my hotel and he called Michael up, who was asking me about the album. It was good because I had wanted to thank him for giving me a shout out in an interview. He also didnt know I had a child so I told him and he said Oh wow, congratulations, the universe is open to you now. But who knows, maybe youll see us working together one day.
RWD: You seem pretty tight with Jay-Z?
Yeah, were basically a crew right now. Were both in very serious relationships (laughs) and if thats a testament to growth, then I think were leading the way. Maybe youll start to see more artists taking that plunge and really getting serious in their relationships. Hey, the world doesnt stop on account of you getting married. You actually become more attractive I think I got more women trying to get at me now than I did before s**t!
RWD: Have you, erm, made love to this record?
Yeah, I made love to a few songs; I made love to Trading Places, you know. Gently is one of my favorite records thats daddy business right there. Make her call you daddy when you put that one on! [T.M.I., Usher.]
RWD: Chilli was quoted as saying you were the one she truly did love. I’m not in love with him anymore, but I can’t say I don’t love him. Do you think it’s appropriate for her to make these comments considering youre married with a child?
I mean, I think its a little unrealistic, Im married (laughs), Im not a boy. Its been three years past, you know? But we all have unrealistic goals too. Like shoot, I will always forever love Katie Holmes and Halle Berry. I dont feel anyway about it. It does appear maybe to be a plug for something. She got a record coming or something? [Chilli was so ILL!]
Quick Shoutout to Esco at K97.5 in Raleigh, NC!
I Dont Believe! While I would love it if its true, I know its not. I heard Rakim and Nas are working a CD for 2009.
Not A Rumor: Comedian D.L. Hughley serve as the host of the BET Awards 2008. I hope he does better than that show he had on BET.
Lil Wayne To Rehab? Im going to take the Amy Winehouse on this one and say, Ill believe it when I see it. They seem to think Weezy is a quitter or something. I did hear this is probably conditional of those drug charges he picked up in Arizona.
RIP TO BO: Bo Diddley’s last word was Wow as the legendary rocker, singer and guitarist died.
A Step Closer To Divorce: Amy Winehouse was four hours late for her husband Blake’s court date. They said she was walking with a crack limp. Not my words.
Do That, Son! Ne-Yo plead guilty to driving without a license and no contest to a reckless driving charge Monday. Hes got to do 24 hours of community service and must perform a show at a local Georgia Boys & Girls Club.
Wig Pushed Back: Busta Rhymes album was looking good to me, but somebody decided to push the CD back to August.
Stay Grinding! DJ Khaled taped a new video for “We Out Here Grinding in New York. Akon, Jeezy, Rick Ross, Boosie and others popped up on the set, as did a number of other goons.
ONE DAY! One day, I am going to pull my yatch right up next to Diddys.
TIL THAT DAY: Sean “Diddy” Combs recently purchased a new 54-foot motor yacht for a cool $33 million. He named it “The Maraya and it comes with a stage.
SIGNS THE WORLD IS COMING TO AN END
When the girl lies, the rules change. I feel sorry for this man. Whats worse, is this is the second man this lil trick has gotten incarcerated. Peep this:
ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — A 13-year-old girl’s sexual shenanigans have put a second man behind bars. Morris Williams, 22, told the judge he thought the girl was 18-years-old, but he found out Tuesday that ignorance is not a defense.
Morris Williams’ mother wailed as he went off to jail. The judge asked for media not to show 13-year-old Alisha Dean’s face in court, but her pictures are all over her MySpace page and they portray a sexy, 19-year-old divorced woman.
Slap that judge too!
DUO LIVE F/ ANGIE STONE
Nice positive summer song for the Kool Aid community.
CHARLIE B-MORE STILL HOT!
But, whats this stuff about not rhyming for the love? Shes a lil too old for that. Nevertheless, shout out to Scott Storch on the beat, who is clearly doing it for the love. (It ain’t the money!)
MY LAST WORD
Hillary Clinton: Get Down Or Sit Down.
