BET AWARDS RUMORS AND COMMENTS
Well, the BET Awards came off without a hitch, from what I have been told. Based on everything I amassed, people talking and twitter, I was informed of a number of key thing. First, BET wants everybody to watch the actual show on October 27. How do you know? Well, they didn't announce most of the winners to "encourage" everybody to watch instead of finding all the result from Twitter. As you know, I am up for an award...ooops...I mean, AllHipHop is up for an award, so I guess we'll have to wait, right? Oh well!
As for the awards, I heard it was pretty peaceful. I heard security was on total LOCK and if you weren't properly credentialed, you couldn't even get close. There were a lot of stars there and Ice Cube got the "I Am Hip-Hop" Award. Fatima Robinson and Missy Elliot got something related to being great women in rap/Hip-Hop. I heard Mike Epps was funny, but got tongue tied quite a bit. LOL.
I heard Eminem, Nicki Minaj and Joe Budden had the illest verses in the BET Cyphas. I heard the Goodie Mob had the ATL Crowd screaming for more.
I heard Gucci Mane performed more than anybody else, roughly five times. In second place was Soulja Boy, at 3 performances. In third place, was The Dream, who performed two times. Jay was there and left after saying AGAIN, "Men like, women lie - numbers don't." I happen to think numbers can even distort the truth, but that's another story.
You have to see the Kid N Play / New Boyz interaction at the BET Awards. I got a peep of it, because some "people" I know taped some of the show. Hee hee!
Nicki Minaj...was looking awesome. JEEZ.
I really didn't get much from the event in terms of drama or shocking events. Basically, hit me up if you have any insider or outsider intel!!!!
BIG MEECH IS GETTING OUT?
I got a rumor that Big Meech of BMF fame is working on getting out of jail. Before you lambast me with all of the legal mumbo jumbo, I don't know all those details... I just know he is working on getting out. Apparently, Big Meech has internet access as well as a phone in jail. Now, I have known a number of high-profile people in jail that have had phones and internet access in jail. Anything is possible.
REAL TALK ON MR. MAGIC...
I never really heard a lot from Mr. Magic. I'm not from NYC so most of what I know about him is second hand information. That's OK. So, know a lot of people are like me. So, we are going to keep paying our respects to Mr. Magic. Here is a video of Funk Master Flex, Positive K and Chuck Chillout talking about the late, pioneering great Mr. Magic.
KANYE WEST GOES AWAY?
Kanye West is reportedly GONE. The Star magazine is moving forward with their rumors about Kanye West and talking about how dude has moved to India for a bit to get his mind right. Yeezy is reportedly traveling to Sri Aurobindo Ashram in Pondicherry to reassess his life. There might be some facts to this, because the Universal Society of Hinduism issued a statement that said they encouraged Kanye to "immerse himself in the rich philosophy of Hinduism while he was in India." Thirty days with no Amber Rose? That's like rehab!
