Hip-Hop Rumors: Shyne Wants Off Def Jam, Kat Stacks Plays Another Fool, Lupe To G.O.O.D. Music?

SHYNE WANTS OFF DEF JAM?

What the hell? I thought Shyne got like $5 milli to sign? Can’t be true if he is trying to get off? Looks like Nas done started something. Peep this:

“I’m definitely trying to get with Cash Money but the Def Jam thing is a question mark right now,” Shyne told SOHH. “I’ve been fixing to get up out of there for a while now because [Island Def Jam CEO] L.A. Reid don’t care about hip-hop. The people up there, they don’t know what they’re doing. When you don’t have a strong leader, where you gonna go? … They don’t care about hip-hop music. You give them a hip-hop record with an R&B singer, you “might” have a chance. They don’t care. You got The Roots, Ghostface, Nas, probably the best hip-hop roster you could imagine and they do nothing. L.A. Reid doesn’t want nothing to do with rappers — it’s nothing personal, I don’t have nothing personal with dude but he makes it known he doesn’t care about hip-hop. So I’m really interested in seeing who’s gonna replace him. Because I know he’s been replaced — so I wanna find out who’s gonna take his spot before I decide what I’m gonna do with Def Jam…The music that we make is responsible for pop, R&B, everything that’s jumping right now…

“They gotta care about [what we’ve done] the way Jimmy Iovine cares about that, the way Lyor Cohen cares about that,” Shyne added. “I’m definitely not gonna scrap everything I recorded. I put in so much, I’ve come so far. From the first record I did when I got out to the new records I’ve done while going to all these different countries, I ain’t scrapping nothing. I paid for that. I’m not signed to Def Jam anyway, I just need to find another distributor. I might just have Cash Money do everything. Who knows? That’s the beauty about being in the business for yourself. You can decide where you want to go and what you want to do.”

LUPE TO JOIN GOOD MUSIC?

I don’t know how true this is, but there is a rumor floating that Lupe Fiasco may be joining with Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music. Now, that would be very interesting to me and you too, I be. Why? Because to me, it seems that Lupe has been running into too many industry issues. He needs that backing. Second, Lupe already has a posse of fans that are fanatical. This makes for a good combo when it comes to dropping an album! Lupe got his big break via Kanye so it only makes sense. Lets revisit that moment.

By the way, this is what Lupe said about his situation with Atlantic. “We just came to a reconciliation, saw both sides of the argument of what was going down, found a midway point that we can all agree on, and we’re rolling.”

HOW DUMB ARE RAPPERS AND SINGER?

I know people hate Kat Stacks, but I have to say this. The boy Jerimiah has reportedly been exposed trying to get some some ‘tang from Kat Stacks. WHY? I suspect record labels are using this hoe as a part of their marketing and promo plans. What do you think? Here is the fail.

He claims to have something on her too, but WHO CARES!

She’s a known hooker than half of the dumb rappers beat.

ILLSEED’S QUICKIES

Diddy and Cassie are rumored to be back together.

RIP shout out to Harve Pierre. His 11-year-old daughter died recently. I don’t know what happened. You should know Harve as one of Diddy’s executive Bad Boys that used to sing dope hooks.

Shout out to Ludacris who is engaged to a medical student.

I don’t know if we care about this, but Amber Rose and Dez (Mario’s new gal) are no longer best friends. Why? Seems that Amber told Mario he was being used by Dez to get fame. Makes sense…since Amber made a similar move with Yeezy. Right?

EPIC FAIL OF THE DAY

If you are married at 21, why are you dating a 15 year old girl? That’s the first thing I asked. Then, it gets weirder. A 15-year-old girl convinced her her married 21-year-old boyfriend that it was a good idea to kill HER father. He did it too. I know this doesn’t matter, but I have to say that the girl is White and the man is Black. The girl convinced dude that if he killed her daddy, they could live together with her mother. UH. They are trying to get the girl to be charged as an adult in the case. Never trust a girl named Kaleigh (Lynn Fryer)! Jerry Jerone Chiles Jr. stabbed Lewis Keith Fryer, 50, to death. Jerry flipped fast and told police she put him up to it. SMH!!!! You big DUMMY!!!!!

EPIC WIN OF THE DAY

Finally, some “classy” people acting like common gutter trash. Some models bumped into each other and started to fight right there on the cat walk!
