I tried my best not to include a big time 50 Cent rumor today, but he released this new song where he says, “F**k Jimmy Iovine!” there is more to the song, but you just have to hear it to believe it. I wonder what this means in the big scheme of things. Clearly, 50's time at Interscope is drawing to a close. Is this the beginning of Before I Self Destruct?

While you are at it, read the new 50 Cent interview...I know this is a lotta 50, but the interview is actually good.THE FIRST REVIEW OF GRADUATION!


OH! Its about to be on in a major way! I was perusing through the Ill

Community and I found this thread on the first review of Kanye’s

Graduation album. The rapper just did a listening session over in the

UK to get them excited about the joint. Somebody went and wrote about

it. It sounds like its going to be a banger! Click here for the review.

Also, Kanye has reportedly accused Jay-Z of biting off of him in the form of a “cold collabo” with Chris Martin of Coldplay.


the song called “Big Brother” he raps: “I told Jay I did a song with

Coldplay, Next thing I know he did a song with Coldplay.”Remember

I told you that this song was gonna appear to be a diss to Jay-Z?! Like

I said, its not, but its supposedly a really honest record.


You know, Young Buck is definitely the type of rapper that could stand alone, with or without a crew. Now, from what I understand, he is releasing a new compilation CD from his Cashville Records. This is rumored to come through Koch Records, the same place that Prodigy and MOP go through. Here is a rundown of the folks you can expect on that album: D-Tay, Lil Murda, Hi-C, C-Bo and The Outlawz with guest appearnces from Buck, 50 Cent, LLoyd Banks, Mobb Deep, B.G, Jayo Felony and Maino. Is 50 interested in picking up Maino? Just a question.


I can’t say for certain, but I am hearing that Raekwon the chef is really ready to move forward with his album. Apparently, the album is ready, but it needs that Dr. Dre magic to be complete. How does that happen when he hasn’t been able to get in the studio with Dre? That’s just what I am hearing. Anyway. I’m hearing Aftermath might be unloading other artists that haven’t quite gotten the “traction” that they were expected to get. No names. Anyway, that’s that.


I thought Kanye was a part of this, but I suppose not. Lupe Fiasco and Pharrell Williams have apparently joined forces to create CRS (Child Rebel Soldiers). Remember they have that song that samples Radiohead’s Thom Yorke? Kanye was on it, but apparently he’s got nothing to do with the group. I forget where, but somebody asked Ye about it and he was like, “I don’t know what you’re talking about.” No label has been named for the group just yet, but I recommend they get Tay “Chocolate Rain” in the mix. He’s a nerd too.


Yo, on the real…who remembers when I was obsessive over Free? Ok, well I think I'm going back to that, because I heard that Free is about to come back to Hip-Hop and me! Ayo…I was reading this AHH interview with producer Salaam Remi and he said that he’s working with Free on her new album, yo! Read the quote!

AllHipHop.com: I almost forgot, you’re also working with Free from 106 & Park. The buzz about her skills was high for a while but has kind of fallen off due to some tracks released on the net. I know you were doing some work with her on her debut album. Can you tell us anything about that?

Salaam Remi: I mean, Free has talent across the boards. She can rap, sing, whatever. She has more music than I can possibly count, but she’s been working on a lot of stuff over the last month or two. You should definitely get some new music from her over the next week or two. And the album should be out before the end of the year. She just wants to work on the songs and I’m like “let them go so we can get this done.”

AIN’T THAT A KICK IN THE HEAD? This all got sparked by a rumor that Free is dropping on Koch in the near future. Its time to do it, Free! She could be the best female rapper!!!!


I heard a rumor about Foxy and then there is the bad news. I heard that Foxy recently came home from Africa. But upon her return, her Range was taken from her as he went to the Paramus, NJ Prestige Range dealership. Sadly, I heard Fox was all broken up and crying over this. This was about day before the most current stuff. She is now charged with a new felony in a new assault case.

There you have it. Foxy allegedly strikes her neighbor with her Blackberry. On top of everything, I heard that she left Def Jam, but the rumor mills are saying she was dropped. And she’s now preparing to release an album on Koch. On the good side, I heard the deal was a multimillion-dollar deal. That means she can get the Range back and she can get some legal defense. Is Foxy our Paris, Linday and Britney? I’m just asking! I love her, but what’s going on!?

Here is the Koch statement:

"I have always been a symbol of independence as a female in music. My brand is already established, millions of my records have already been sold, and I have a fan base already loyal. After 13 years at Def Jam, I felt it was time as a matured business women to move on and continue my brand under the roof of something I own. I have two albums of music recorded, and my fans have waited long enough, I'm back bitches."


Maybe Hype Williams wanted Nas and DMX, but he didn’t get them? He’s got nothing to do with “The Game” version of “Belly.”

I don’t know that I believe this one, but I was told that perhaps Diddy was considering proposing to Kim Porter. Wouldn’t that complete the fairy tale?

Rumor has it Ne-Yo got robbed of some jewels after a performance in Montreal, Canada at Club Opera. I thought Ne-Yo was above clubs.

G-Dep’s DJ E.NYCE hit me up and let me know that Dep is going to be dropping a mixtape within the next three weeks and I will be able to get you some music when it hits. Stay tuned!

Shout out to my homey Edwin ChuCho! He hit me with the PR police footage. For the update on that situation, click here.

Halle Berry is reportedly two months pregnant.

Amy Winehouse is resting and recovering after being admitted to rehab.

Madonna reportedly injects her vitamins into her veins. She did the deed in front of a gang of people on a plane or something.

After tongue-kissing Madonna, I heard Britney Spears has officially crossed to the other side and gotten a girlfriend.


Kelly is chillin!

Kim Kardashian has a patented "I have a fat butt so let me look over my shoulder and see you looking" pose.

Wonder Women to the rescue!


Check this crazy mess out…”Same Dude” by Mimi and Flo. Shout out to Sevard from Toronto.

This is a serious read, but it details the push to have microchips inserted into humans for tracking purposes. Now, this isn’t anything new. Remember after the Sept. 11 tragedy, there was a huge push for microchips? The “vaseline” was inserting them so you could locate lost loved ones in the event of a bombing? Well, nobody was with that so it switched to imputing them in your dog or cat in case they get lost. Click here to get the update on the microchip, which is about the size of a grain of rice.
