LIL WAYNES JAY-Z TATTOO?
First of all, my boy Chris told me that Lil Wayne actually has a Jay-Z tattoo. Now, I asked around and a number of people confirmed this information, but I still dont have a confirmation confirmation (if you catch my drift). Anyway, Chris has a Jay-Z tat that I put on AHH and after I did several people hit me saying that they had Jay-Z verses on them. Im waiting to hear about the person that has an illseed tat engraved on their body. About Waynes tattoo, I heard it was a verse from Lucky Me from In My Lifetime, Vol. 1. Nothing in stone, but a great homage from one artist to another.
LIL WAYNE AND JAY-Z CROSS PATHS?
So, Jay-Z dates Beyonce. Lil Wayne was briefly connected (in rumors) to Solange, Beyonces younger sister. Well, last night Solange had a party celebrating her 21st birthday. Here is the information:
Celebrate 21 years of Solange with two star studded birthday bashes in two different states! The first is, this Sunday, July 1, 2007 in Houston, Texas and the second is on Friday, July 6, 2007 in New Orleans, LA during the Essence Festival! This is a celebration of creativity, individuality, music, art, fashion, dance and expression.
So, in Houston, Solange at the Museum of Contemporary Arts we had Swizz Beatz, Lupe Fiasco performing, Maseo of De La Soul on the wheels of steel and from what I heard both Jay-Z and Lil Wayne in the building. I have to admit that nothing absurd happened like Jay and Weezy battling in the VIP. According to observers, there was a bit of anticipation of some drama. I recently saw Lil Wayne and he just seemed more mature and we know Jay-Z is more mature. Maybe those battle days are over? NAH! That would be battle royale if it could pop off correctly.
Anyway, happy birthday to Solange Knowles. Her Friday (July 6) will feature Q-Tip on the DJ tip and a special performance by Chrisette Michele. I like their taste in music!
So, Jay-Zs presidency is up in less than six months. Ive been hearing that Jay isnt going away from Def Jam from the officials. Then there are the rumors. These rumors dont listen to officials. Im hearing that there are about three candidates up for serious contention for Jays job if there is no renewal. As you know, Dame Dashs name has been tossed around and hes one of the three. From what I gather, this is slightly far-fetched and probably wont pop off for the obvious reasons. The other candidate is Jimmy Henchman Rosemond, who has done some pretty good work managing The Games career. As you rumor mongers recall, Jimmy was being courted for months to replace Jermaine Dupri at Virgin. I also heard Warner Brothers was trying to get him. Now, Def Jam has thrown its hat into the rumors about Mr. Henchman. And, I dont know who the third candidate is, but when I find out, will let you know!
LUPE FIASCO FALLS THE HELL OFF!
Lupe is the homey, but it is what it is. Watch the video to the very end.
50 CENT SAYS F**K 50 CENT!
50 recently did a show over in the UK for all the homeys at the Hammersmith Apollo. Well, hes frickin tired of all the hate sort of. The rapper reportedly got the crowd to curse him. He reportedly said, "You all know Game? He said f**k 50 Cent, but it aint hurt my feelings. You all say f**k 50. The raucous crowd shouts, F**k 50! Then 50 comes back with a last diss to The Game. Ok I won't write your next albums either, he said. I also heard Timbaland appeared on the stage with 50, but it was a very weird showing for the producer. Nobody knew why the hell he was there. I dont know who his hypeman was, but 50 Cent also kicked his hypeman off the stage after he forgot the words to Wanksta. I pray it wasnt Tony Yayo. After the T.I. stuff, that would be a bad look!
I dont know what Tims current CD is selling like, but I am hearing that hes looking to make a dramatic move in the near future. In fact, I heard that hes looking to retire and just do special projects for his closest friends. From what I understand, Timbaland has made substantial income with these pop singers like Justin and Nelly F, not to mention Bjork. With that, hes taking his chips and spending quality time with this family and his friends. The exact words used were considering retiring from music. Maybe its not true.
There is no beef with 50 Cent and T.I., according to a recent conversation with 50s close associates. I heard they are admitted fans of T.I. COOL!
Lil Mama & Missy? Missy is in studio working on new album, I heard. Im also hearing that her and Lil Mama just collaborated on a new song for the young bucks new album.
Remember how Steve Rifkind was looking to sign Ma$e? Im hearing that these tranny rumors have that deal in a tizzy.
I heard Nas recently rocked Dream in DC. I heard the show was so hot that several fights broke out in the floor, kind of like a mosh pit. On top of that, Shaq was there for some odd reason. Hip-Hop is alive in D.C.
IF YOU HAVE HIV OR AIDS READ THIS. IN FACT, READ THIS IF YOU DONT
CHICAGO (AFP) - In a breakthrough that could potentially lead to a cure for HIV infection, scientists have discovered a way to remove the virus from infected cells, a study released Thursday said.
The scientists engineered an enzyme which attacks the DNA of the HIV virus and cuts it out of the infected cell, according to the study published in Science magazine.
The enzyme is still far from being ready to use as a treatment, the authors warned, but it offers a glimmer of hope for the more than 40 million people infected worldwide.
SIGNS THE WORLD IS COMING TO AN END!
I know you didn't think I would end on that positive note, did you?
Authorities in Maryland are looking for a man that attempted to rob an ICE CREAM TRUCK, but managed to kill a 13-year-old girl. The police want to holla at Kevin Mark Warren of Waldorf, MD and slap him up with first-degree murder charges. For whatever reason, this man allegedly used a gun in this heist. In most instances, couldnt you just slap the ice cream man up for the Bugs Bunny money? Sadly and tragically, Briona Jasmine Porter was in the truck with her mother, who was testing the truck out. She told this guy that there was no money on the truck. Moms tried to speed off and Warren shot the truck up, killing Briona. Did he really thing there was going to be a lot of cash in an ICE CREAM TRUCK? Perhaps, he should have robbed another form of ice cream man, if you catch my drift. Anyway, thats my sign the world is coming to an end report for today.
TOMORROW, WE LOVE YOU!
They keep us talking, but if we stop talking about them then they should worry!
