These guys are not playing! Late last week, Jay-Z and Beyonce flew into Australia for the U2 tour that he is on. Well, that move is big unto itself. But, here is the catch according to sources of mine. Kanye went as well and he and Jigga Man went into the studio over there to finish up their highly anticipated album "The Throne." I heard they also went out to the Crown Casino, whatever that means.
DUCK DOWN RECORDS' LATEST SIGNEES?
I am hearing some interesting news. Duck Down records may be having three more signees to their label. They are reportedly about to announce the signing of Peedi Crak and Freeway, according to my sources! I think this is a great look as long as they can give the guys the proper push. There is one more artist that will reportedly sign as well. I won't reveal that one at this time. As you know, Black Rob recently signed with them in a one off album deal. We'll see.40 GLOCC DUMBS OUT ON THE GAME AND RICK ROSS
50's Cali muscle lets it be known.
SUGE KNIGHT'S STUFF SOLD IN AN AUCTION!
Damn! They straight auctioned off Suge's stuff on a reality TV show. I'm not even going to tell you what the highest bid was.
KURTIS BLOW DENIES THE WEED BUST!
That's what's good KB! Don't let them son you! LOL!
ALICIA KEYS IS STILL DEAD!
Uh oh! This may not have worked. Basically, the whole celebrities is dead thing was a protest in order to raise money for AIDS awareness. They were gunning for $1 million. The only thing is, they haven't come even close to raising that million. So, Alicia and the family cannot get back on Twitter or Facebook until WE donate enough money to bring them back to life. As of this writing, fans have donated $290k. I think Swizz Beatz is going to be the first to break the deal and resurrect himself. He seems to love Twitter too much. LOL!

RAP NEWS ON THE WIKILEAKS!
Check this out and let me know what you think. This is interesting to me. I really didn't know a lot about the details surrounding this Wikileaks stuff. This was a great way to present the info. The real dude from Wikileaks is in this video.
Former U.S. Vice President, Dick Cheney, is scheduled to be charged for issuing $180,000,000 in bribe money to Nigerian officials, during his time at Halliburton. Hopefully they can convict dude. WORD! R.I.P. FRED HAMPTON
Yesteryday, while everybody was wishing Jay-Z a happy birthday, there was something else that was going on. It was the anniversary of Fred Hampton's death. Hampton was the Black Panther Party leader that was killed by police while in his bed. It is widely regarded as an assassination. I'm sure most people won't watch, but below is a full documentary on this called "The Murder of Fred Hampton."
Roman Polanski, the person that spawned Nicki Minaj's Lil Kim beefin' alter ego Roman Zolanski, was charged with the rape and sodomy of a 13-year-old girl in California. He reportedly got her drunk and went to work. SMH. He admitted to the deed. But, apparently dude is such a great film maker, he still won six European Film Academy Awards.
Shout out to Black Faff! He was out there in South Africa hanging with Public Enemy, DJ Drama and DJ Green Lantern! Johannesburg in the house.
I'm hearing rumors that Charles Hamilton may be dead due to an overdose of some sort of drug. Hoping this is false. Dude really has been looking kind of wild lately. Also, he's not really on social networks like that these days. Not sure where to catch up with him.
No disrespect, but do people still care about 5 mics? I hope Kanye does.
Mike Vick is still largely in debt, to the tune of about $12 million. But, after this season, it looks like he's going to be good - hopefully. I think the Eagles need to keep him.
Flo Rida recently gave out his real phone number and was subsequently sent 10,000 texts in about 24 hours. He's done that two times now. What was he thinking!?
RIP to Don King's wife, who succumbed to cancer recently. Don has a fight coming up later this month. I wonder if he will be able to finish that. THE NEGRO COLLEGE FUND..
Oh boy! Throw some money Chris Brown's way.
