ALLHIPHOP IN THE BIGGIE MOVIE
I have just been informed that one of AllHipHop.coms staffers is officially in the Notorious movie! Dennis "Da Menace" White (AllHipHop Direct correspondent) is playing Damion "D-Roc" Butler, who was Biggie's best friend and confidant. Shout out to Denise and well see him soon! Big things!
Here is some stuff for you on Detox.
Dre and the crew have about a zillion songs to pick from. I heard some are from inside and others are from outside of the immediate camp. From what I understand Dr. Dre has scrapped several records that people close by feel are pure hits. The finicky nature of the good doc has caused countless delays on the completion of the album. From what I hear there is a rapper named Prophet, who submitted several songs for Detox. None of the songs for the album were accepted, but I heard the crew actually liked his raps style. They also liked Prophets producer WallStreet so they were flown out to Cali for a trial run. Once they arrived I heard everyone got acquainted and started working.
Rumor has it, WallStreet pulled up a sample and started crafting the drums as Prophet began writing the rap. I heard it was cool, but Dre had to work his special magic. I heard he walked in, heard the track and immediately got a studio person to replay the sample. As urban lore holds, Dre got on the boards and started to get more involved with the production. He started to EQ WallStreet's drums making them sound 10 times bigger. Additionally. he had the guitar and strings played over until it was another Dre classic. This song is likely to turn into a buzz single for Detox. I hear Prophet continued to write the record and then laid his vocals to the record so Dre could learn the song. Dre is expected to put down vocals to this song in the next day or so.
A lot of people think this is actually Dr. Dre, but those folks clearly dont know the good Doctor! The Dre vocals are probably never going to come out until Dre wants that. Im sure this is behind several layer of vault!
NEW KANYE WEST SONG KIND OF.
There is a guy named 88 Keys (no relation to Alicia) and he is reportedly working with Kanye West, the executive producer of his upcoming debut. Well, I received this video that has excerpts from the new 88 Keys / Kanye collabo. Check it out, but its a bit hard to understand.
FOXY AND AZ A SECRET ROMANCE?
From what I heard this is ancient history, but rumor has it, back in the days, Foxy Brown and BK rapper AZ had a lil fling. Honestly, I always thought that was more of a Nas thing, but I have been told otherwise. It is rumored that AZ got in those drawers many moons ago, possibly from the Firm era. Im not verifying this as fact, but I am hearing that Foxy lives up to the name The Ill Na Na.
IS RYAN LESLIE HEARTBROKEN?
I will be real honest. Ive put Ryan Leslie in the rumors quite a few times, but I never sat and studied some of the sciences that revolve around him. Well, I heard a few tidbits about him recently. I head that his recent hit record, Diamond Girl, is about none other than Cassie. I assumed he was just singing, but its a call out to Cassie. These two were doing their thing when they were in the grind and, in many respects, Ryan made Cassie into what she is now. Dont laugh, shes a star! Anyway, I heard he misses her, but might have lost her to a certain mogul in the rap game. Somebody told me Cassie got some diamonds right before she signed to Bad Boy too. Poor guy!
SOULJA GIRL IS WANTED!

It is looking like Kanye is going to be the first non-athlete to get a Nike shoe.
Mariah Carey on why she didnt want kids and why she may change her mind:
"I never wanted to feel violated and I know that's a kind of weird thing to say, but that's how I am. I don't think I could properly educate a child right now. Maybe in the future, but I actually haven't thought about it. [Kids are] part of the whole purpose of getting married. Id just want our children to have the best childhood and upbringing they possibly could."
Toni Morrison falls back on that first Black president statement about Bill Clinton (Time magazine):
People misunderstood that phrase. I was deploring the way in which President Clinton was being treated, vis-à-vis the sex scandal that was surrounding him. I said he was being treated like a Black on the street, already guilty, already a perp. I have no idea what his real instincts are, in terms of race.
Shawty Lo talking to Kay Slay about T.I.:

I got an interesting letter about the T.I. situation. I dont want to devote too much time on this, but check it out.
I just watched the video of King K-Dot Talking about T.I and I have read a lot of comments about T.I's case and how people feel about the case. With everything I hear and read people are saying that he is a snitch, now everyone is calling him a snitch but no one has a clue who he would snitch on. From what I have read the only people who were involved were him and his bodyguard and the bodyguard set him up. There were no other report of any other persons that was involved with this ordeal so who is there to snitch on? unless T.I was buying guns for someone else but who knows? the point that I'm tying to get at is that this is a case of monkey see monkey do. I say that is because when one reader states a comment of T.I being a snitch then everyone makes the same comment in contrast, when the comment of him being a snitch comes up no one even backs up their comment on who he snitch on. why? because no one has a clue who he would snitch on.
SIGNS THE WORLD IS COMING TO AN END
OK, we all love pizza, but this is crazy! The Papa John's Pizza in Shaker Heights Cleveland decided it was a great giveback to the community with a promise to sell a large, one-topping pizza for 23 cents to customers. Guess how many people came through? OVER 2,000! And people waited upwards of 3.5 - 4 hours for a damn pizza! This started at 10 am! This was a citywide promotion that resulted in traffic jams and people that tried to cut into the line were bood to the back!
Now, in Philly a lot of the Black community didnt come out and VOTE and I doubt that anybody is going to wait 4 hours to vote, even though its way more important than a .23 cent pizza! Should Barak build with Papa Johns to get it poppin at the polls?

IMPALA MONEY COME ON DOWN
This is a new section called Come On Down. This is the rumor section, but I continue to get letters, emails, myspace pages and all other sorts of people wanting to get on. SO, a ways back, I started illseeds breeding ground. There were personal people that I liked. Oh well. That didnt work. So, this is something different, but similar.
I got this letter from dude by the name of Impala Money, who is definitely hungry to get on. He has also been a member of the AllHipHop Ill Community for about three years. Check him out, vote and comment. Impala Money, make your way to the stage. COME ON DOWN.
