KANYE IS IN THE LEAD NOW!
50 Cent had the lead in the presales, but it looks like Kanye might have taken over from there in sales. Obviously it is early, but hitsdailydouble is stating that Kanye West is on pace to move about 700,000 Graduation units in his first week. They say that 50 Cent is set to move about 500,000 to 700,000 units of Curtis. And that country dude might see his first non-number one entry in the charts. Hes looking to move about 450k 500k, which is insanely good considering hes not on all the Viacom properties. Time will reveal all.
Its not a contest. Just make music, dude, Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters.
Speaking of the country dude - Kenny Chesney was popping a lil bit of junk himself
He told Houstons KBXX. I am so NOT about a beef, but you know I am sick and tired of everyone acting like because it's country music and the media doesn't care, that all the people listening to our music are invisible. When I look out there every night, I see a lot of kids and people who love this music every bit as much as Kanye or 50's fans love theirsand we have the numbers to back it up, so I wish people would give our fans and this music some credit! I mean, we did do six NFL stadiums, in Boston, Philly, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Detroit and Seattle, so this isnt something people should ignore.
I think he might be about a beef!

TIMBALAND AND JENNIFER HUDSON?
So, Jennifer Hudson is working on an album, right? This much we know. But I am hearing the musical maestro Timbaland has secured a song with Jennifer and it might be her first single. Jen, Tim and a young upstart named Jim Beanz apparently got down with Ludacris for Pocketbook, according to the Thomas Crown Chronicles. With Tim being the go to guy for all things pop, I think hes the man to get that mass appeal.
FREE THE JENA 6!!!!!!
Click here to hear a song from Jasiri X! The song is called Free The Jena 6 and its hella tight. (You like how I just used hella in a sentence.) Anyway, this is a great song and an example of what Hip-Hop really is. Anyway. Click here to hear the song. (I've heard this beat before.)
I get it in, I get it in.
SUPERHEAD ENGAGED TO LIL WAYNE?
Superhead is supposedly engaged. To who, she wont say. I dont understand why somebody would marry this chick, but thats none of my concern to be honest. Anyway, TV One Access Jamal Munnerlyn, conducted an interview with Superhead, according to mediatakeout. They said she had a huge rock on her finger. Now, she says the man is a celebrity, but what other celeb has she been associated with recently? Wayne. Below is a supposed transcript of her interview. I didnt think they let people like Superhead on TV One. LOL.
TV One Interviewer: Are you engaged?
TV One Interviewer: So who is the lucky man?
Superhead: I cant tell you. I know, Im the worst.
TV One Interviewer: Is he a celebrity? Is he somebody that we might know of?
TV One Interviewer: Is it Lil Wayne?
Superhead: I cant tell you. I cant even hint. I want to protect our privacy for now. Maybe after the nuptials, well discuss it. But you guys will be the first I tell, I promise.
ROC-A-FELLA BILLIONAIRE TOUR
Remember I mentioned that Showtime wanted to do a 50 Cent / Jay-Z concert? Well, that show is no longer on. I did hear that Roc-A-Fella might be doing a tour called the Roc-A-Fella Billionaire Tour. I guess if you can believe it, you can conceive it or something like that. Anyway, I heard it will consist of Jay-Z and Kanye West on selected dates, but not all of them.
KANYE THROWING THE FIGHT?
They are trying to say that MTV actually offered Kanye the main stage, but he declined in exchange for the private suite for the VMAs. Hmmmmm ..nevertheless, MTV still wants to work with Kanye and probably will. Still until they resolve this, Kanye has continued his boycott of the network. Ye was supposed to appear on MTV yesterday with 50 Cent, but didnt. 50 Did and they blanked out Kanyes album cover in the promo. Id hate to see Ye lose due to a misplaced boycott! Its too close for that now!
The Insider has the scoop:
THE FOXY BROWN UPDATE (DAY 6)
Today it is six days since Foxy Brown has been sentenced to a year in jail. I cry like Reh Dogg in the shower. Here is the update. I heard that just before she was sentenced, she was dissing some of the other girls in jail. The assumption is that she SWORE she was going home not a YEAR.
A correctional officer takes her to her housing area and Foxy just started dissing him, according to rumor.
"You aint nobody, you're just an officer, you aint a warden or captain so dont tell me nothing," she reportedly said.
The CO reportedly fired back, "I get to go home at night, bitch, so get your green cup, put those f**ing skippies on and lets go!"
(I dont know what a skippy is, by the way.)
When they leave the housing area so Fox can change for her court appearance, a few inmate fans she has wished her luck. She allegedly said to no one in particular, "Them b***hes are stupid." (I do find this hard to believe.) A female officer says to her, "You should be happy they still like youre a**, because you aint had a hit record out since Jay stopped writing your s**t. The COs got a kick and a laugh out of that.
THEN FOXY GETS A YEAR IN JAIL the story continues in the next rumor installment.
CAN THIS MAN TAKE THE RAP AHH CELEBRITY RAP BATTLE?
I'm not up on Mistah FAB too tough, but I KEEP hearing great things about him as a lyricist. I think this Bay area rapper can be the spoiler! Also, so you know, a lot of people were approached for this battle and Joe Budden, Mistah FAB and Royce Da 5' 9" were the ones that stepped up. If anybody that is a CELEBRITY wants to step into the space left by Phonte, let me know. The AHH staff has people they are working on and I do my own thing. Here is Mistah FAB out in Las Vegas.
Love the Cazals.
STAR IS WRITING A TELL-ALL BOOK ABOUT MISS JONES?
I know Miss Jones hates me, but I am going to tell you what I found from writer Karu Daniels of the Black Voices Newswire. Star (Troi Torain) is going to be writing a tell-all book about Miss Jones, who used to host the morning show with him on Hot 97. YEAH THAT. Now, here are some of the selling points that Mr. Daniels discovered.
The Name of the book is called Yes, Ive Met Miss Jones.
Apparently, in Miss Jones new book Have You Met Miss Jones there are roughly 30 pages devoted to Star.
Of the book, Star told Karu Daniels, "Please note that I'm not a vindictive person, nor do I need closure on the inner thoughts of Tarsha Jones, but ... I felt the need to give further perspective on my incomparable journey.
Of Star, Miss Jones called him a "A knuckle-dragging motherf#$%& wearing tight, high-water pants that emphasized how small his nuts were.
Of Miss Jones, Star said the following:
"Miss Jones short-lived contributions to my grind came at a point in her life where she has already admitted to being desperate for a dollar. After leaving such a lasting impression on her, I now take this opportunity to drive the nail home for the sake of my legacy."
Star apparently alluded that he and Miss Jones had an intimate relationship, something I dont care to confirm. Still, he said that the experience has seemingly caused him to swear off Black women. I dont think Ive cared for a Black b***h since then."SMH.
He said that he kept that b***hes belly full" and will now release this crazy book. Well see if the public is interested in it.
Shout out to Karu and AOLs BV Newswire.
"FREE" NO SHOW IN CHICAGO
Well it was official! Free was going to join the WGCI 107.5 (Chicago) radio family but according to my sources Free is no longer making that move! What happened? There was a memo sent out to the staff announcing her arrival and her name was even on flyers throughout Chicago further indicating that she was coming to town as a WGCI radio host, so what happened? No one knows...but I hope this means she is somewhere recording that longggggggggggggggg awaited album! Salaam Remi talk to me.
DAMN, DAME! DAME DASH BEATS UP PIMPS!
50 CENT AND A LIVE BAND?
Word? WORD 50? I see somebody is trying to take things in a new direction. This is way better than that BET Awards show.
BIG BROTHER, HUH? OK, Kanye got the Cuban link thing on and does an introspective song. This is interesting.
Shout out to Queen Latifah. The Queen was nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress In A Miniseries Or A Movie her roles in Life Support.
Um sorry Angie Locc. From what I have been told there is no way she could be Hurricane Chris mother. She was born in 1980.
Oprah will give her dogs $30 million if she passes away. The National Enquirer is also stating that O will give Stedman 215 million in hush money to stop him from writing a tell-all book.
Season 2 of I Love New York will feature a midget. I cant give this the time of day. Not because of the lil man either.
Kanye West is supposed to join Office star Rainn Wilson at the Emmys in some capacity.
Dawn, the former member of EnVogue, is rumored to be starting her own reality show with her husband. I know she was hot, but I dont know that this idea is.
Rumor has it, Nelly and Ashanti were secretly engaged. Im not sure, but thats the word on the block.
Rumor says, Tony Yayo beat up Steve-O. That dude stays losing. Remember when Raekwon and Wu Tank sonned dude for disrespecting ODB?
MASH IT UP OLD LADY!
You have to see this! This is soooooo funny! Sue Teller Mashes It Up
SIGNS ITS TIME TO PUT A CAP IN SOMEBODYS A**
I dont mean any harm, but it is time to place a cap firmly in somebodys hind parts. Six people have been arrested in the rape, torture and kidnapping of a Black woman. It so happened that her capturers and torturers happened to be White trash from West Virginia.
Every time they stabbed her, they called her nigger, her mother said.
The people are all aged 50 to 20 and they all took part in raping and torturing this woman. The people planned this out and had a pair of other people bring the female to the shed where she was assaulted. Now, tell me isnt it time to get some payback? Im tired of all this s**t. The Jena 6, Sean Bell, that old man down in New Orleans. I am sick and tired of the blatant racist actions of bigots. All people have to talk about is rap lyrics, but what about the people actually out there DOING CRIMES. Im so beside myself I cant even write bout it. TORTURING SOMEBODY FOR A WEEK? For no reason? Forced to eat RAT and DOG FECES? Im sorry they need to get about life in jail.
TO SWITCH GEARS COMPLETELY
I don't use the b-word...but for the chick below...I will make an exception. This B-WORD is crazy. She said, "If you have a problem with Britney, come see me." Now, if a million people beat her up, she would have an issue with that. She is PSYCHO.
MAN! I did a lil' research and THAT SOBBING THING IS A MAN!
TOMMY LEE TALKS ABOUT KID ROCK B***H SLAP!
