NEW RUN DOWN
LIL WAYNE SIGNS JAE MILLZ!
Jae Millz finally gets a frickin break thanks to Lil Wayne. For those of you that didnt already hear it, Weezy signed Millz to his Young Money imprint. Thank God, because I didnt know where Millz was going to end up. Hopefully, the heat Weezy is generating will transfer over.
JAY-Z / MARY RUMORS GET REFUELED!
Jay-Z and Mary are the elder states people of Hip-Hop/R&B. Thats not to say they are old, but to say they are the blueprint. When they get together you know it's going to be something special. Here is the latest to fuel the rumors that they are gonna be doing an album together.
Shout out to You Heard That New for that.
Also, I dont know if this has leaked but NY folks can still see these two even though the one show sold out.
Due to overwhelming demand, Jay Z and Mary J Blige are adding a second Madison Square Garden date on May 7th. Tickets on sale Friday 2/29 at 10am. Also, The Dream has been added to Heart of the City Tour. GOOD LUCK
BAD LUCK ON THE JAY-Z / NAS CD
It was fun while it was rumored. But, sadly I heard this rumored Nas / Jay-Z album is a bust already. From what I was told, Hot 97 had an interview with Jay-Z and Mary and they were promoting their upcoming tour. Well, they asked Jay about it and he said something like, Man thats unfounded, I just heard about that rumor yesterday." Well, Jay should read AllHipHop more often so we can debunk this stuff faster. Now, Jay did say he would like to do an album with Mary (see above for proof). Mary was there too, but thats just jibba jabber about her not being better than Whitney. Stand up Mary!
T.I. GETS THE OFFER OF A LIFETIME!
I am so happy to be a square type dude these days. I am hearing from reliable sources down in Atlanta that the Feds have made their offer to Clifford Joseph Harris, Jr aka T.I. aka T.I.P. They are saying prosecutors offered him a 15-year plea. From what I understand, just possessing a silencer carries at 10-year bid. Then there are the priors. Ohhhhhhhh how I hope Tip doesnt go down over something like this.
On the other side of life, Tip is being positive. Read our recent interview with him. He's got new music coming!
AllHipHop.com: We know you're working on a new album and we're anticipating that coming out soon...
T.I.: It's entitled Paper Trail, because this is the first time since my very first album that I'm actually writing down lyrics on paper like the old days. From Trap Muzik to T.I. vs. T.I.P. I would always listen to the music, formulate in my head what I wanted to say, step into the booth and rhyme. I never really wrote anything down since I'm Serious, and people were saying that they were missing that sound, and that they were looking forward to that sound being brought back again.
GOTDAMN IT! RAS KASS GETS THREE YEARS IN JAIL!
Man, Ras Kass f**ked up. You heard it here first and you heard it here first before. Remember a few months ago when Ras Kass appeared on BETs Hip-Hop Awards show rapping? Well, remember he was on probation at that time and you need to get permission to do that. So, he was on TV, in Atlanta without permission. What made him think nobody would see is baffling. ANYWAY. At that time, they said OHHHHH Ras is in a MIAMI STUDIO working on his new album. WHATEVER MAN!
Ras is in JAIL right now and will be serving another THREE years in jail for that violation. People, just play by the rules for a few please! Hell be gone for three Novembers. THE GOOD SIDE. Super underground producer Domingo will be releasing the next album for Ras, Institutionalized Vol 2. The irony is too thick to mention. Domingo and Ras are collaborating on Deranged Music/Re-up Entertainment. Domingo is more than respectable as a producer and is known as a very good dude. Hold it down!
DR. DRE IS IN THE STUDIO!
Normally, this would be a illseed quickie, but since it is Dr. Dre, we have to talk about it. Anyway, the good doctor according to my sources - is in the studio with Scott Storch working on his long-awaited Detox album. Sources have learned that the West Coast based-producer who rarely travels is now in Miami to record with Storch. Dre and Storchs last collaboration was in 2001.
NEW ROOTS VIDEO! 75 BARS!

Kelly Rowland is releasing a digital album is called Diva Delux. It goes on sale March 25. I heard there is a special secret shoutout to me.
Bill OReilly saying a half-assed apology about mentioning lynching and Obamas wife:
"While talking to a radio caller, I said there should be no lynching in the case, that comment off Clarence Thomas saying he was the victim of a high tech lynching (he said that on 60 Minutes, you may remember). I'm sorry if my statement offended anybody. That, of course, was not the intention. Context is everything."
Put this into context:
Star Jones Reynolds to Bill ORacist:
Be clear Bill O'Reilly: there will be no lynch party for that Black woman. And this Black woman assures you that if you come for her, you come for all of us." (Read the whole thing right here)
AHH reader Mardro on the memory of Static Major:
I had the chance to meet Static a few years back. He was a guest speaker at a music conference and he was working on his album. Static was such a humble, caring and genuine person.
SIGNS THE WORLD IS COMING TO AN END
SMH at the faculty at Elizabeth City State University. The school somehow thought it was a great idea to stage a mock shooting spree on the college campus. Wait. Here is the catch. They didnt tell any of the students that it was fake. Furthermore, they did this a mere eight days after the tragedy at Northern Illinois University, where five people were slained by a renegade gunman. WOW. Here is how it went down according to the AP:
The News & Observer of Raleigh reported in Wednesday's editions that an armed man burst into a classroom Friday, threatening to kill students. The drill came eight days after a gunman killed five people and himself in a classroom at Northern Illinois University.
Anthony Brown, vice chancellor of student affairs, said ECSU was testing its response to such shootings. E-mail and text messages were sent five days before the drill, notifying students, staff and faculty, he said.
"The intent was not to frighten them but to test our system and also to test the response of the security that was on campus and the people that were notified," Brown said.
The problem is, email gets missed by people such as myself. You know how it goes! So, people were assaulted and held hostage, not knowing it was a drill. The school has been offering counseling to faculty and students. "I was prepared to die at that moment," said Jingbin Wang, a student. Papa Musica thanks!
THE WENG WENG RAP!
Thanks for sending this one, Kanye! TOOOO Funny! He is 2 foot '9 inches of pure fighting fury. Look at this:
HERE IS WAYNE AND JAE MILLZ
ARE YOU A B***H OR A QUEEEN?
