of the biggest events that cross over into Hip-Hop and entertainment have happened
this past week - the MAGIC Clothing Convention in Vegas and the NBA All-Star
Weekend in New Orleans.
AllHipHop.com represented at both, I have been stuck here in Hollywood and
missed out. But at least that means we have been able to get some more juicy Hollywood smack down for you . so here comes another
exciting edition of the Hollywood Shuffle!
The Game goes to jail in the movies and real
the upcoming police action thriller Street
Kings, The Game plays a Los Angeles gang banger who goes by the name of
Grill. As Los Angeles
police men (Keanu Reeves, Chris Evans) slowly take matters in to their own
hands to clean up the streets, they also end up throwing Grill in jail.
quite ironic considering the fact that The Game is now serving two months in
prison for gun charges. I heard Jayceon didnt need much direction when filming
his jail scenes he felt right at home. The good thing though, is if he gets
out early for good behavior, The Game might be able to make it for his own
movie premiere when Street Kings comes
out in theaters on April 11.
Street Kings also stars Common,
Forest Whitaker and Hugh Laurie, and is from the writer of Training Day.
Bai Ling steals $16 worth of merchandise
Bai Ling, who is known as the sex crazed Asian woman in countless films and TV
shows (Entourage, She Hate Me, The Crow) was caught
stealing $16 worth of tabloid magazines and batteries at the Los Angeles
International Airport last week. My philosophy is if you are famous and want to
steal things, well, they should be things worth stealing. Like rare things such
as a Ferrari Enzo or a pair of tickets to Kanyes Flashing Lights tour
successful seasons, the CW show Girlfriends
will not be returning for a ninth season. Rumors were all over the place as
to the exact reasoning, especially since the writers strike had finished and Girlfriends season eight was supposed to
film eight more episodes. Instead, CW pulled the plug on the remaining episodes
and killed any chance at a season nine.
many fans of the show left to hang with no finale and no sense of closure. Word
is the CW will not be having a finale, but instead a one hour retrospective of
past season clips to close out the series.
Krayzie Bones Ghetto Cowboy
Bone-Thugs has been making their mini-comeback, Krayzie Bone has been taking
advantage of his revived career and has announced he has been working on a
black outlaw cowboy movie for the past couple of years called Ghetto Cowboy. While casting and production has not started yet, Krayzie
did say that he would star in it and is looking for other Hip-Hop artists to
join as well.
looks to be a smaller film production similar to the other Bone-Thugs movie, Tried. As Ghetto Cowboyis still in early stages, there is no planned release date.
Jack Ass Johnny
Knoxville almost loses balls literally
just gotta bring this up, because Im always amazed how insane (and stupid) the
guys from Jackass are. Apparently
head Jackass Johnny Knoxville was filming a stunt which required him to do a
backflip on a motor bike. The only problem was, Johnny does not know how to
ride a motorbike.
result of the stunt? He obviously crashed, but almost lost his balls in the
process, has a torn urethra and must piss in a bag attached to his leg for the
next two weeks. Yet somehow Johnny still insists it was all worth it.
Did OJ assault his girlfriend?
Im all for giving a guy a second chance. I mean even though Im from Los Angeles, Im still
rooting for Shaq to do his thing with the Suns. But now giving OJ Simpson
another chance? Word is that OJs girlfriend Christie Prody reported in to a Florida hospital this
past week with head injuries.
that Prodys head injuries are the result of being drunk and falling down the
stairs, but a hospital neurologist has stated that the injuries look to be
consistent with an assault. Im not gonna state my opinion on this, but how
many chances would you give this guy?

upcoming film Soul Men. Legend joins
the cast alongside Samuel L. Jackson, Bernie Mac and Isaac Hayes. Soul Men, not the sequel to Soul Plane, is
