THE DAILY TWO SENSE
I am so bored right now, it doesnt make any sense! Hmmmm…wondering if its time for me to bow out with grace! Anyway, theres still a drought in the rumor land. There is a lot of BS and pics and vids out there. I have some of that on here. Anyway, shout out to Rick Ross the Soundscan is in! See it below!
Lets get onto the rumors!
SOMEBODYS SMASHING CIARA!? WHO!?
I know that was so rude to say, but Darius hit me up and gave me the scoop on a recent interview from Ciara. Before CiCi was an admitted virgin check out what she said when somebody ask about her cookies.
wasup illseed, u said- if i see something, say something…well i didnt really see it but matta-fact i heard it. Ciara wuz on our local radio station power98 in charlotte, nc and dey wur having her go through fan mail and answer questions…well one of the craziest questions came out on the air, the question was “Ciara yo song goodies was a hit, but have the goodies been unlocked now?” i was like woooowww…after he finished dat question her manager sandy interuppted da show and was like she has to go, Ciara said “no, i can answer dat”….she said dat she made the song when she was young and all she has to say is “Yes i have grown up” Her manager jumped on again and was like she has to go..the radio station thanked CiCi and her manager, CiCi was polite but da manager was mad…Shout out to POWER 98 for being real wit da ppl..
DIPSET REUNION UPDATE!
I dont know who talked some sense into Cam, but it looks like the crew is coming back like a reported a week or so ago. Here are some quotes from Juelz and Zeke:
I just gotta tell you, stay tuned for Summer Jam, he declared. Like I said, it is what it is right now. N*ggas aint talking to each other over simple sh*t, nobody killed nobody took no money from nobody, it aint even no beef This is a family dispute We gonna be jammin in the summer.
Now that they all have crews, they are going to be stronger. Per Juelz:
Ah, man, its beautiful. That was the whole plot. For everybody, for all of us to have, how can I put it? Roc-A-Fella, Bad Boy and Death Row, we all bosses in our own right. We got the swag, we got the energy. Thats what I feel the whole idea of it is. To get us to the point where everybodys team is solidified and all the bosses are still comfortable with each other and we can all come to the table. Roc-A-Fella, Death Row and Bad Boy, imagine what the tour would have been like.
SOUNDSCAN IS IN TODAY!
So, the day is here and well see what Rick Ross moved in terms of his units sold. Sales dont matter to me. I think the album is really good and I like it based on the artistic merits. Im not concerned with his past too much. I only know a couple rappers that actually live what they say totally. 50 Cent must have done a number on Ross in NYC though. I got this letter well its very telling. LOL!
I actually work at the Best Buy at 44th and 5th where the Rick Ross signing was…. and the pictures didn’t lie, really there was about ten people that came through for it. It was like when Bobby Valentino came, and we, as employees, we given the opportunity to chill with him before the signing with “only” ten spots available… No one jumped on it. And, to be fair, with Bobby Valentino, we didn’t have as much promotion. But for Rick Ross, he had promo in our windows for a good two weeks leading up to it. Personally, I’m not a fan (though I tried, I bought Port of Miami, and vowed to never buy a Rick Ross album ever again), and maybe New York just isn’t his market….
PS – Kim Kardashian looks better with dark hair.

50 CENT IS WORKING ON IT!
An insider emailed me with some information that I pretty much assumed. Check it out here.
The reason why 50 isnt responding to Ross right now is b/c they stopped until his album releases. Once his album releases, it will be back to normal. I already know what they will compare his lack luster sales to BUT if he sells more than expected then I dont know. But thats what it is! But you didnt hear it from me…. I know all them dudes. But this isnt really a rumor because if you know music then you know Ross better do wayyyyyy better than Kiss did on his album with no radio, no video and he did 130K! They put at least 2M for Ross. At least!
JAY-ZS NEW ACT!
I keep hearing about Jay-Z signing this group and that rapper. But, the fact remains; Jays not even putting any of these acts out yet. Im wondering whats the time frame on this? When is Jay album coming out!? Oh sorry! Jigga has reportedly signed British girl group Sugababes to his Roc Nation imprint. I never heard of them, but I heard that they are all the rage in the UK. The group recently flew to LA to record and stuff. Lets hear some music!
ITS DEEPER THAN SNACKS!
I tried not to post this, but its just too funny.
People are too much. LOL!
THE NOTORIOUS B.U.M.
I think I posted this guy up before, but this is a rare performance indeed. I present The Notorious B.U.M.
LOL. The LAPD thinks they SLICK! Rihanna requested that the Los Angeles police return jewelry worth about $1.4 million that was seized the night Chris Brown pummeled her.
This aint funny, but it is. I heard Atlanta wasnt too kind to Mike Jones. He was performing and he allegedly said, This is gonna be a top 10 single real soon” and then some White guys says, “Yeah f***ing right, top 10 single, where at? Indonesia?” Flagrant! Read the new interview with Mike right here!
Naomi Campbell is retiring. She got that Russian boyfriend with a billi in the bank.
T.I. did not go to jail yet. I think he goes in sometime in May. He was sentenced. I thought that does mean you go to jail, but I guess not.
Rumor has it Zab Judah has signed to Floyd Mayweathers boxing promotions company.
GINUWINE AIRS OUT R.KELLY
What was it like working with Aaliyah:
Ginny didnt hold back in a recent interview where he dissed R. Kelly.
Taking shots at Kelly? I think he deserved it. I mean, you dont do that. You dont do that man. I just feel like if youre going to mess with somebody, mess with somebody your age. Okay, they said it wasnt him, so if it was true, you mess with somebody your age.
I bet somebody is going to say hes just hating.
SIGNS THE WORLD IS COMING TO AN END
This is getting crazy like a fox with rabies. The NYPD is at it again! WOW. If these guys were a criminal they were be like a serial offender. Sorry, good cops, but the bad apples are running things now. According to police, a pair of cops were called to help a drunk woman get home safely. Guess what happened instead? She got raped by one of the cops while the other one played lookout. YEP. How two people decide this is a good idea is beyond me. They allegedly took the woman home and laid her face down, covered in vomit and raped her. On Tuesday the coppers pleaded not guilty to rape, burglary and official misconduct. A cabbie called 911 when the drunken 27 year old couldn’t get herself out of the car. They probably didn’t know they were on camera. They went in the house, left. They returned 34 minutes after leaving the first time. This is when the rape allegedly occurred. These NYPD cops are staring at 25 years in jail for this.

SOME ILLY PICS
Sorry Obama haters and super-duper conspiracy theorists. There is still some cool stuff going on. US First Lady Michelle Obama, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and others like actress Cicely Tyson unveiled the bust of Sojourner Truth in Emancipation Hall of the US Capitol on April 28, 2009 in Washington. Sojourner Truth was an 19th century American slave, abolitionist, and women’s rights activist who is best-known for her speech, “Ain’t I a Woman?”. This rocks!
MR. & MRS KNOWLES, WE LOVE YOU!!!
They keep us talking, but if we stop talking about them then they should worry!
