DMX'S SPLIT FROM WIFE?
The last time I saw DMXs wife was on the Irv Gotti reality show, where all the wives were basically exhaling about their men. Well, I dont know that this is really out there, but DMX and his wife Tashera Simmons are rumored to have split. I dont know of any formal notification, but I heard that its a wrap. There have been recent pictures of DMX driving with a woman other than his wife, but that doesnt necessarily mean hes doing wrong. I will have something more on this soon.
Anyway, DMX got some good news over the weekend when AHH broke news that a $1.5 million suit again the Dog had been dismissed. Read all about it.
MORE DMX RUMORS DID HE DIP ON HOSPITAL?
Just when you thought it was cool.
DMX allegedly tried to skip out on a medical bill from an Arizona Hospital, according to tmz. They are saying that DMX used the name Troy Jones when he came down with pneumonia. Here is some of the report:
According to court documents obtained Friday by The Arizona Republic, DMX checked into the hospital's emergency room, complaining of shortness of breath and chest pains. He was diagnosed with pneumonia and released eight hours later.
DMX could be charged with "theft of services" but right now, he is clear. Lord knows DMX needs a break.
WENDY'S MAN - I KNOW!
I don't ever quite know how Wendy Williams feels about this sort of gossip about her. As a woman, she can't be happy. Well, her hubby apparently has a sex tape. I don't want to see that mess. This is me acknowledging that I know about it.
Hold your head, Wendy - that is if this is bothersome to you. Shout out to Necole Bitchie. If you want the rest of the scandal, go here.
50 CENTS DEAL IS RUMOR FOR NOW!
Violator Management has confirmed with AllHipHop.com that reports of a proposed merger between rapper 50 Cent and Rupert Murdochs News Corporation are false. According to reports, the rapper was supposedly negotiating a $300 million dollar deal that would have brought 50 Cent to MySpace Records. The deal also reportedly would have given News Corporation control over 50 Cents past and present tours, books and film projects, as well as his website, thisis50.com.
WILL.I.AM GETS MICHAEL JACKSON!
Michael Jackson is joining forces with Will.I.Am to finally make that comeback happen.
Mike is expected to move somewhere up in New York to start working again. Congrats Poughkeepsie, N.Y there is a star in your midst! Rumor has it, Jackson is moving into a gated community up top and hopes to start recording again. Part of that will be to appear on the new album by Will.I.Am. I guess will did work on the 25th Anniversary of Thiller and this is the get back! That CD sold like 3 million units! We want Mike back!
FUNNY MONEY MAYWEATHER?
All Over A Kardashian: Floyd Mayweather has reportedly stated that he would fight Reggie Bush over Kim Kardashian. He also said hes retiring, but he must mean after the fight with Oscar De La Hoya. LMAO! On the same note, Floyd Mayweather allegedly made it rain at a ATL strip bar, but when people went to spent the money, it came up counterfeit. Its all about the fake Benjamins? [Click here to listen to the Money Man diss Reggie Bush and also talk about all the money hes got to give.] Maybe it was the party promoter's money?

TURK IS COMING HOME?!?
Turk the incarcerated Cash Money Hot Boy might be out of jail as early as this summer, I am hearing. Turk has been on lock down since his arrest in 2004. Now, he was sentenced to 10 years in the bing, but his guilty plea has apparently been rescinded, because he didnt know the gravity of pleading guilty. Anyway, he apparently has quite a bit of time served and is coming home and straight to Hip-Hop.
IS SHAWTY LO STRETCHING THE FACTS?
I got this email from somebody. I cannot corroborate the facts inside this email and that is why they are rumors. Peep it!
With all this stuff coming from Shawty Lo saying T.I. not from Bankhead. What he fails to mention he hasn't lived in Bankhead his whole life either. That little punk from Moultrie, GA, home of the world's largest tractor show. Yea that's hood for ya. How exactly or when he got to Bankhead I'm not sure, but I do know all his family, the Walkers, all live down here. Alot of people I know all say Shawty Lo lived down here for sometime. It isn't uncommon for Lo to be seen down here. What it all boils down to is Shawty Lo got mad at T.I. cuz T.I. wouldn't get on his song and I heard this almost 2 years ago from some of Shawty Lo's own family. Now I'm not saying Shawty Lo never sold s**t in Bankhead or didn't ever live in Bankhead b/c I know that would be a false statement. Just saying while he trying to be Bankhead nigga ain't 100% Bankhead either.
[Illseed note: With all the fighting over who from where, I WISH I was from Bankhead.]
WHERE T.I. AND SHAWTY LO ARE (OR ARENT) FROM
Here is a lil youtube special on Bankhead, Atlanta. The skreets aint a game:
IS IT GETTING WACK BETWEEN RUSSELL AND KIMORA?
Not sure where this came from, but I heard that Russell and Kimmy sat down to get on the same page about their divorce. Apparently, Russell is willing and ready to pull her cheating out in court should it have to get super ugly. I dont know what Russ may have confirmed, but there are a few things in circulation, namely Baby of Cash Money and Djimon. I heard things are increasingly getting difficult because their business and personal stuff is all intertwined. Also, I heard that the prenup favors Russ, but I dont know how this will turn out.

WILL SMITH IS ON THE WAY BACK!
You gotta Love IT! Everybody knows I am a big Will Smith fan, from the early days of Just Rockin to the movie career. Well, I am hearing that Will Smith is now in the studio and working on a new album. You might recall his last CD, Lost and Found, which featured production by Jazzy Jeff, DJ Twinz, Kwamé "K1 Mil" and even everybodys homey Polow Da Don. I dont know what Will is doing this time, but I heard he financed the last CD himself and made a lotta money since it broke Gold or came really close.
I am also big on the DJ-rapper combo so Jazzy Jeff gets a huge nod. Jeff might be the best DJ ever. Anyway, check out a rare performance where Jeff and Will Rock Right Now.
DR. DRE KINDA SORTA DOESNT SPEAK ON SUGE
MR. T WOULD BE PROUD
Remember the rumors about Ice Cube being appointed to the role of BA Baracus for the new version of the A-Team? Well, I heard that is totally out now. Guess who the replacement is? I hear it issss (drum roll)....TYRESE! I don't know for certain, but I heard Tyrese is now the No. 1 candidate for that gig. I just cannot see anybody but Mr. T as BA Baracus and mass boycotts may ensue if he isnt involved somehow. No hate to Cube or Black Ty.

THE REAL JOHN MCCAIN!
I love John McCain like a card carrying Republican. I will give this to my friends in the Obama and/or Hillary campaign.
The McCain Double Talk Express continues:
Almost A Dice: Rumor has it (or fact has it) that Ciara is making like 5 different versions of her next album. Each cover will each display a unique aspect of her personality.
Dubai Is The SPOT: Dave Chappelle is trying to do it again with the Block Party, but this time, he is reportedly doing it in Dubai.

Breaks are an intricate part of your car aint they? Dont you change them all the time, well, once they start acting funny? This whole thing is my car. I drive this foreign right here. Nobody else driving this here, ya dig? It was more business than anything.
Barack Obama telling McCain (and his buddy Bush) to put on a hardhat for those November:
If George Bush and John McCain want to have a debate about protecting the United States of America, that is a debate that Im happy to have any time, any place, and that is a debate I will win because George Bush and John McCain have a lot to answer for. I believe that there is no separation between George Bush and John McCain when it comes to our Middle East policy, and I think their policy has failed.
Polow Da Don on why Ma$e wasnt in Rich Boys Get This Paper video (Source):
Mase had got caught up. There was a rumor that he was looking for a transvestite. The video shoot was the day after. It was crazy because people were killing him on the radio. He was like, I aint worried about that. Im on the way. He just never showed up.
