MY DAILY TWO CENTS
I just want to say thanks to everybody that has hit me with their rumors, gossip and viewings. Also, thanks to the people that send commentary or feedback.
I dont have a lot to for my two cents, but if you SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING!
Thanks a lot! The rumors are crackin
WHAT? 50 CENT COMES ON, YOUNG BUCK EXITS?
This is crazy, but my homey Amsterdam hit me up on this one. Im not even going to try to recount what I didnt see. Check out what he had to say:
What’s up illseed? My name’s Amsterdam and I’m one third of an Oregon-based group called Top Shelf. Young Buck is touring with the Outlawz through Oregon right now and was in Bend, OR last night. My boy owns a store called Showcase Hats & Apparel, where Young Buck was scheduled to do an in-store meet and greet from 5-6 PM yesterday evening before the concert got started. He shows up with the Outlawz around 5:30 (who were not promoted on the flyer but gracious enough to show up and be friendly with everyone there). There were probably 50 kids or so waiting outside in line and a few of us inside chilling waiting for Buck. Very small gathering all things considered.
My boy had put on a random Buck mixtape (I never got a look at it, not sure what it is) and Buck was laughing cause he said he hadn’t heard the final versions of a couple of the songs that were playing. So Buck signs autographs for all the people in line and was real cool about everything. He was upstairs taking a few pics with fans when out of the blue, a new song on the mixtape starts and I hear 50 Cent’s voice. I laugh and glance around the room, where I see a couple members of Buck’s entourage whispering to each other. Not even 30 seconds later Buck walks down the stairs and announces, “Stay up folks, I’m out.” Bounced around 6:15 or so. He was clearly agitated that a 50 Cent song had come on while he was in the building and left in a rush.
I feel bad for rappers that have beef with other big name rappers, because their music is always on. Id like to beef with somebody that fell off or is way underground. That way, we can just ignore them easily.
ARAB BEEF WITH BUSTA?
Waaaaay back in Jan. of 2007, AllHipHop did an interview on a rapper name Narcicyst (click here to read that interview by Chris Sweeny) Narcicyst is an Iraqi MC that is now in the Middle East after going to college in Canada. Now, I am getting word that this dude has taken total offense from Bustas new song Arab Money to the point where hes recorded a diss record. Now, I know rap beef isnt what it was, but I wouldnt want a beef with Busta, because he is known to spazz a bit. Still, as an Arab, hes taken exception to the record, which is hugely popular. Hmmm apparently, Narc has been in talks with other Arab rappers on this. Stay tuned.
You know, I want to bring this up since we are talking about Busta. Where do you rank him in Hip-Hop? In terms of spittin there are VERY, VERY few people that can see Bussa Bus. I think he needs a lil more credit. Click here for his new song Blown, because even the autotune isnt irritating on this song.
ILLSEED TO MANAGE KELLY ROWLAND?!
My pretend wife Kelly Rowland is rumored to have a major shocker to announce at the top of the new year. Apparently, she is looking to break away from manager Mr. Matthew Knowles. The rumor is, Mr. Knowles has put all of his energon cubes into Beyonce and really hasnt focused on her much. Beyonce is a juggernaut! The thing is, I know a lot of people that feel Solanges CD is better than Bs. I wouldnt know, since I havent heard either. Still, Kelly is a huge star overseas and she seems to think that her success stateside should be bigger as well. Now, here is the kicker Kelly MIGHT get Simon from American Idol to manage her career. Rumors! Rumors! Rumors! So, with that said, I think Kelly should let me manage her instead and I would promote her all she wants right here on the rumors page. Im throwing my fitted in the mix!
HE LUH ME: LYFE GETS ENGAGED!
Remember that situation with Lyfe Jennings? A restraining order from his wife. A gun fired. An accident. All sorts of chaos! Well, I am hearing that a lot has changed with him and his fiancé, which I thought was already his wife. Apparently, she has withdrawn her restraining order despite the craziness and gone on and gotten engaged to Lyfe for LIFE in marriage. Congrats to the couple. Love conquers all even a gun.
NO 4-SOME FOR DEELISHUS
Here is a letter from none other than Deelishus (real name London Charles) in response to the rumors surrounding her alleged wedding break up and a purported 4-some with Allen Iverson.
nope, still Deelishis and Orlando. We wont wither, but we shall weather the storm! A.I. and myself are friends and like any other celebrity male figure who Ive met in the industry and have become an aquaintance of, of course we hang out and like friends do, laugh, kick it and keep it moving. It is a shame that two adults of the opposite sex cannot be friends without someone assuming bullsh*t. This is just one of many rumors that many celebs have heard or dealt with about themselves and I know I shouldnt be moved by it, but he has a family and so do I, and they dont appreciate having to hear bullsh*t every 5 seconds just because some blogger, onlooker or just a flatout HATER is being nosey, messy or having a bad day! Grow Up!!! One day all that BAD karma is gonna come back to bite you in the ass! God Bless You, and may you continue to live your life, and stop being overly involved in others.
To my real ones out there, I love you and please continue to pray for myself and Orlando,
RECESSION IS REAL
Times are rough and there is nothing realer than that. This recession is making things tight here. Anyway, I got a rumor that T-Mo Goodie of the Goodie Mob now works at a gas station in or around ATL. Im not even trying to clown. I know a lot of rappers that are dead broke trying to be “too big” to work and can’t afford rent. I heard that T-Mo has grinding on his music thing still and gives people his music as they come through. His new single is called Bounce Wit Dis. I went to his myspace to hear it and I really like it. So, click here to listen to it and the other songs too: http://www.myspace.com/tmo2thefullest
I miss Goodie Mob Cell Therapy was one of the illest songs of the 90s.
This was the South too. What happened these sort of rappers from the Dirty?
JIM JONES WANTS TO GROW UP!?
Well, Jim Jones has been doing his thing for a minute. I heard a few things out of a couple recent outing from him. This first one started after his acclaimed play. I heard that Jim seeks to retool his image a bit and that was reflected in the play. I think he is married and definitely know that hes got a baby now to take care off. His recent show was with a live band a definite different look. Also, rumor has it, Jim has signed a very talented artist named Star, who is a bangin singer. Previously, I had a rumor about Jim needing Max B, but it would seem that came from a Max B fan more than anything.
FIGHT AT CHAMILLIONAIRE PARTY?
If you are in Houston and go to a spot called Flyrides, you are probably at a spot owned by Chamllioaire. Well, I am getting word that he had a party and CD signing for his latest mixtape called “Mixtape Messiah V.” I heard that several of H-Towns finest came to support, including some cats from Rap-A-Lot. Well, what happened? Allegedly a fight breaks out between two girls and a spilled drink. Somehow, some way, the fight got to Mike Jones lil brother, who was allegedly picking people off. Anyway, I cant say who but somebodys chain and bracelet came undone. Then somebody else, picked it up to get it appraised. When they got it appraised, the jeweler reportedly said that the bracelet was completely fake and the chain/medallion was worth like $1,100. OUCH.
SOMEBODY IS GOING TO HELL .
William Balfour allegedly killed the Hudson family members over jealousy over Julia Hudson. She started dating another man and he allegedly told her hed merk the whole family if she did. SMH at this alleged heartbroken coward gangsta. Peep this one as an EZ Pass to hell. Jennifer Hudsons nephew, Julian King, 7, was also found shot to death (Oct. 27), as you know. But here is the BS. Investigators are leaking that the boy could have been straight up tortured before he was slain. They are saying that the the fingers on his right hand were broken or fractured and his other hand was mutilated to the point where the police thought it was cut off.
F**K YOU LUDA!
Why would illseed say, “f**k you. Luda?” you may ask.
Well, they didn’t invite me to be in the video, you will see below. Soooooooo…F**k you Luda!
I mentioned it earlier and Im telling you again DJ Khaled is the VP of Def Jam South.
You probably heard this too, but I am getting word that Bow Wow has quit rappin to act whyd he do that song Marco Polo then?
Shout out to all the Grammy nominees, including the nominees are: Coldplay, Lil Wayne, Ne-Yo, and Radiohead. Overall, the year in music wasnt so bad. Too bad Dre, Em and 50s Three Headed Monster didnt come in the 4th. Jay-Z too.
Hmmmm I dont know about this one, but I guess I will run it. A person told me that they were driving down 7th Ave & 49th in NYC and pulled up next to Diddy and Aubrey from Danity Kane inside his Maybach at a light at around 49th. Thoughts? I think Diddy values discretion a lil more than that not sure.
Polow Da Don is now working out like a mad man and has reportedly obtained a personal trainer to keep him on point. I need to do that too. Shout out to Gyant.
Also sigh Shyne is supposedly going to drop a new album called Godfather Resurrected. How is this for a better album title Godfather, gets out of jail, gets life together and then gets to record CD ?
I covered this WAY back! But Rihanna and Chris Brown are the plaintiffs in the lawsuit for $1 million by a photographer that got beat down allegedly by their security detail. This happened in May allegedly.
You want to see Prince, the purple one, perform with Q-Tip and DJ Scratch? Wow click here.
Have the Free Masons hijacked Hip-Hop to achieve their maniacal goals? Click here for this one at illseed.com.
Jaz-O hearts Jay-Z (who Jaz calls Big Lip Shawn) so much, he hates his freakin guts (mimyl.com):
Hes a disgusting, greedy, cowardly, lying son of a b***h. Tell em how ya really feel, Jaz!
Kanye wow dude is going full throttle with the mutha f**ka please comments:
“Nobody really wants to recognize that Beyonce is a f***ing living legend and that she is just as great, if not greater, than the artists that we had in the past…that she’s probably greater than Tina Turner.” Why throw Tina under a fake a** bus? Without Tina, aint no Beyonce! Period!
Shots fired? Brandy comments on RiRi and B:
“I love Rihanna’s style and Beyonce’s style but my style is very classy, very simple and fashion forward.” (Nah, Brandys not like Ray-J!)
I don’t know Bran Bran…this wasn’t the classiest move you made. Hot…but classy? NAH!
FREDRO IS OK!
Speaking of classy and Brandy. Here is an update on Fredro Starr. He replies directly to the illseed rumors. Thanks, Onyx rules. I cant wait for the Black Rock album.
THE SOURCE TO GO BACK TO MAYS AND ZINO?
I don’t know how true it is but word on the street up in Boston is that Benzino and Dave Mays are working on getting back The Source. I am not certain how this is possible considering there are new owners. Now, perhaps they are looking to buy it back. I know they are doing some other ventures and the word is, those other ventures will supposedly back their efforts. You know, this is purely rumor and frankly, I dont think business works like that. Good luck to all and to all good luck.
EPIC FAIL OF THE DAY
Amy Winehouse can prepare for divorce, Id say. Amy Winehouse’s husband Blake is finished. The dude is back in prison, because he wasnt smart enough to comply with the terms of his bail. Guess how he messed up? He broke the conditions of bail by failing a drug test in rehab. He was about to get out of rehab in December and would be free. But, no he busted out and tried to go see Amy or some mess. Anyway, between the two places, he must have scored some smack or crack Now hes staring at a jail term that will take him clear to 2010.
SIGNS THE WORLD IS COMING TO AN END
How can a president be unprepared for war? I know he pardoned John Forte, but this is unacceptable!
COMMON GETS STUCK IN AN ELEVATOR
STEPHEN COLBERT DISSES KANYE AND KANYE STRIKES BACK
Before you get to the Colbert diss, I want to print what is allegedly Kanyes response. Kanye West reportedly said, “I could end Steven Colbert’s career but I would never take food off another man’s plate.” (I dont have the source on this one). Now, these two have something in common. They both dissed George Bush. Google that and you will KNOW, Ye can’t end Colbert’s career ever.
Now, here is what Cobert said to warrant such an absurd response from Yeezy.
LIL WAYNES DAUGHTER HAS TO BE THE COOLEST KID
In her school. Sheesh. Her daddy is Lil Wayne for
goodness sake. She had a party at a bowling alley and even T.I. showed
I DID NOT WANT TO DO THIS
But the pressure is coming from all angles for me to keep it real.
Now, I am going to keep it real. Whats the big deal REALLY? Beyonce is human like every other human – last time I checked at least. In this blog nation, its hard out here to be a celeb. Now, do you get why illseed ducks the fame at all costs? Im not letting yall destroy me.
Remember the man that was arrested in Dallas, TX for giving kids weed? The man was caught on tape after police investigated a burglary. Well the man has been slapped up and will likely serve a term of up to seven years. Remember, the kids had both weed AND cocaine in their systems. You may not remember but AllHipHops own Jigsaw had to come to the rescue when they tried to suggest Hip-Hop was to blame. Check it out.
THE OTHER SIDE
I am all about being fair so here is a letter from a reader that I respect tremendously. I am going to print a portion of a letter that he sent me, as it pertains to G.W. Bush getting dissed at that Global Summit thing. Remember when the word leaders didnt shake his hand? Here is what Majico said:
On the the song by Jasari , please inform my fellow readers that president bush already shook those leaders hands TWICE and but only for a leader who came late they wouldnt have redid the handshakes for the third time. CNN even issued another clip correcting themselves I really respect you and your website and i will keep on viewing it but sometimes i just would like to give the other side of the story. as a respectable American Im sure you can respect that thank you
I AM A RESPECTABLE AMERICAN! ILLSEED!
OBAMA, WE LOVE YOU!!!
They keep us talking, but if we stop talking about them then they should worry!
