THE HOT BOYS ARE COMING!
If you are looking for the Hot Boy to reunite in a formal manner, you are in luck!
BG has a song coming out called Ya Heard Me and thats a song that airs out the entire Hot Boys reunion situation. Basically, the crew all had to prove that they could do all their collective projects separately before coming back to the table as the Hot Boys. From what I know they are definitely going to do it and are now working out the particulars on the deal. Its my understanding the Universal Records still has the contract, but somehow Atlantic might come into effect.
RHIANNA THE LOUIS VUITTON DONNA
Rihanna is a hot chick. She is so hot I heard she is in talks to be the new face of Louis Vuitton. I dont know all the details, but I think is a great look for a great looker.
KANYE WEST DOES A BID!
I know you saw this already, but I cannot believe Kanye West got arrested on Sept. 11 at an airport! Those paparazzi are crazy, aint they? Anyway, You probably saw it already, but if you didnt, here it is.
I dont know why people were suggesting that it was a bodyguard that was doing damage and trying to take the charge. That was actually manage Don C going out like a G. I dont know, but Kanye is the last person I thought would dumb out on the paparazzi. Hes staring at a felony, but I know his money and power will get him out of this. He has no priors!
HERE IS THE POLICE STATEMENT
I heard Kanye got out of the jail and his real bodyguard blocked him from the rabid press with an umbrella.
Entertainer Kanye West and Don Crowley, his road manager and body guard, were arrested at Los Angeles International Airport, today by Los Angeles World Airports Police following an altercation with two members of the paparazzi. The incident occurred at 7:51 a.m.
West and Crowley were at Terminal 4 to depart on a flight to Honolulu. In the public area prior to passenger screening, they were met by a photographer and videographer who were taking their photos. An altercation ensued between the two cameramen, West and Crowley.
The cameras of the paparazzi were damaged in the altercation.
West and Crowley were taken into custody, each charged with felony vandalism. Airport Police had initially received the call as also involving a potential battery. However, following initial investigation, it was determined that no battery occurred.
Both men have been transported to Los Angeles Police Department Pacific Division for booking.Man, I had already printed up a FREE KANYE WEST t-shirt!
THE GAME TO GET DROPPED?
I know you thought I was talking about that dude from Compton, bit Im not. I am not an avid watcher of The Game, the show on the CW, not the rapper. But I heard the show is in jeopardy even though it has been hugely successful. Please keep Tia Mowry and Raquel Robinson working and watch it! The insider that I talked to told me that the show is getting almost no promo or marketing dollars to make it. There may even be a conspiracy to dump it and drop it from the CW roster. So, spread the word! Look for the Oct. 3rd premier.
LOST KELLY I LOST
Ahhhhh just call me a sucker for Kelly. Weve been on the rocks for a minute now and now its over. Shes got another dude. I got another situation anyway!
Kelly, you with out me...is like cornflakes without the milk. Step into the "Rain" with me.
Shout out to Oran Juice Jones!

THE GILLIE THE KID / HEAVY SPITTERS / G-UNIT PHILLY SITUATION
You should remember a day or so, I told you that their may have been an altercation between the good people of Heavy Spitters and Gillie the Kid, a Philly rapper that used to beef with Lil Wayne. I dont know, but somebody said that I had it all wrong so here is there version of what happened. This information is coming from somebody down with G-Unit Philly so take it for what its worth. (No editing was done to the letter, but I did change the ALL CAPS.)
What's good, illseed??? I'm going to officially give you some "intel" on the gillie da kid/heavy spitters incident. Whoever told you that version is 110% misinformed. Mike knox asked me to tell you how it really went down. What happened was........
Slick from "heavy spitters" is from philadelphia. However, he recently started dealing with new york rappers and he has become unloyal in the sense that he is now letting other rappers make philly rappers look bad on his dvd's. First, he let a new york rapper disrespect cyssero over the phone on three-way (which slick secretly recorded) and he put it on a dvd/worldstarhiphop. Then, he allowed tone trump (a philly rapper) disrespect oschino (state property) on another dvd. Recently, alot of philly rappers have united (especially those from north philly) and we are now our own "hip-hop police" in the sense that we have a problem with anyone making loyal philly artists look bad. Slick was just an example of an unloyal philadelphia resident being "disciplined".
Gillie did not hit slick from heavy spitters. Gillie was involved, but mike knox (g-unit philly) is the one who smacked him at least 10 times. Knox and gillie set-up slick and had him come to a studio (under false pretenses, obviously) where gillie & knox had their own "camera crew" prepared to record the incident. Gillie & knox confronted him verbally at first, but when slick tried to lie about the situation to their face, that is when he was slapped many, many times. They had "fun" with the situation and made him apologize to oschino & cyssero on our footage. This was done to set an example to anyone who disrespects philly artists in our "alliance". Slick tried to get away, but we had people watching the door to prevent his "escape". They embarrassed him to the point of no return. I don't think you'll be seeing anymore philly-based "heavy spitters" dvd's.
The video of the whole incident is in the possession of gillie da kid. To my knowledge, gillie plans to release it on worldstarhiphop. However, mike knox and i have no idea why he hasn't done it yet. Maybe gillie wants someone to cut him a check??? I honestly don't know because gillie said he was going to post the video the next day. So, stay tuned......
I dont know about this one, but you have read about the lady that was convicted of murdering her child by frying her inside of a microwave. I am going to play slightly fair and say that there are charges that something else is going on. Recently, but after her conviction, there has been a new witness (actually old witness) to come forward and say that China didn't confess to the murder. This person, who I believe was her lesbian lover/ cellmate, claims the state paid her $3500 to get lost during the last trial. I know China probably had a wack lawyer so maybe getting lost was realistic? Anyway, China's attorney has already filed an appeal for a new trial. I guess they arent that wack, eh? I also heard that some boy known to be strange may have put the baby in the mic and killed it. I dont know, but that mess is crazy. I dont know where China was, but her kid was 28 days. Most mothers dont let their kid out of their sight at that age. Lemme stop, before I get in trouble. Free China Arnold right?!
DMX was arrested, released and put back in jail. I cant keep up. Read the story here.
Mr. or Ms Rapper, did you think the music business was actually a regular business? JOKES ON YOU! Wendy Day clocks in and gives you the straight deal, no chaser allowed.
You know G-Dep was ill. Somebody just asked me whats up with him. Truth is, I dont know. I heard he did a show recently with DJ Premier. Lemme know Dep!

Rumor has it, the Violator All-Star DJs and the Shadyville DJs may merge. That seems to make some sense since Violator manages 50 Cent and Shadyville is 50s homey Whoo-Kid.
Shout out to Taraji P. Henson! The actress adopted a Katrina Family.
I am hearing that Saigon is getting ready to drop his highly delayed album. Come on Sai!
Micheal Jackson took his kids to see his hometown of Gary, Indiana and Michael showed his kids where he grew up.
If you think they arent going to do all they can to stop you from voting, think again. Check this twist of BS.
We will have a list of foreclosed homes and will make sure people arent voting from those addresses, party chairman James Carabelli told Michigan Messenger in a telephone interview earlier this week. He said the local Republican party wanted to make sure that proper electoral procedures were followed. The Michigan Republicans planned use of foreclosure lists is apparently an attempt to challenge ineligible voters as not being true residents.
Daddy Yankee responds to his critics that call him a sell out irrelevant nobody (NY Post):
"I don't care who I piss off. This is about my ideals, not about making friends. Senator McCain is the kind of man whose promises you can actually believe in. I like his stance on immigration reform, that he works across party lines to help immigrants, that he agreed to take a look and help the dire situation of aid to the veterans of Puerto Rico.
This is about PRESS, dude..not policy. Dude hasnt gotten this much press since Reggaeton went out.
Juelz Santan is wild. He said he wants to be the Monica Lewinsky for Sarah Palin:
I wanna smash her just to wreck the whole McCain thing. Itd look like she was cheating and thatd be all crazy for the White House. Only thing is America would say, Shes just like us now.
SIGNS THE WORLD IS COMING TO AN END
I hope you dont think I just do this particular part of the column for fun. OH NO. Im serious! This world as we know it is coming to an END! Why do you think they are going to Mars? They know! Anyway, a man with a child beats another man WITH A HAMMER on a Philadelphia subway train. What the hell just happened? In one moment, the man is tenderly talking to his son and in the next instance, he is beating the life out of a man with a HAMMER. See it:
Here is the update:
Thomas Scantling, 26, of Philadelphia is the person that attacked a man with a hammer as he slept. He has been charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault, among other charges. He is no angel with a lengthy criminal history of rape, robbery, assault, and drug violations. He was actually taken to a mental hospital. He was apparently upset that other train passengers were too close to him and his kid. The victim was 20-year-old Dewayne Taylor. He was fortunate. He was admitted and released from the hospital for head and neck injuries. He didnt know that NUTJOB. Throw away the key!
I dont know why, but this was supposed to be included in yesterdays report. But, Matt Damon tore Sarah Palin out of the frame. I totally agree with him and have a hard time understanding why people with any inkling of common sense cannot see this point of view.
SHELZ ARBITRARY MOMENTS
Score One for the Mogul
This hasn't been the best year for Dame Dash, but at least his son is coming home. Or he should be per the order of the courts. The judge ruled yesterday that Linda Williams was going to have to turn Dame Jr. over to his father. Only thing is Ms. Williams (baby momma) didn't bother to show up for court. No warrant was issued, as the court wasn't positive she had been contacted. Another session is scheduled for 9/15 and at that time Dame and Dame should be reunited. It appears if baby momma doesn't show up on the 15th, then a warrant may be issued.
Come Back Bristol. Come Back .
Oh my at the level of talent in this drop. Note to Kev . Don't quit your day job. But he definitely gets an A for the creative angle. Claim White House hopeful's daughter's unborn child, reap rap benefits. It's definitely worth a try.
Cashville Chain Spotted on Ebay
Now some folks are suggesting this belongs to Buck. How they know that, I don't know. I'm sure he's not the only one with a Cashville chain. Too late for anyone interested. The bidding, which started at $7000.00, is closed.
[illseed note: I've never seen Buck with a chain like that!]
I NEEDED THIS
Q-Tip. I want to thank you for such a great song that really reminds me of the good, ol days of Hip-Hop. Feel good music. The world is so nuts that this song and video is really on time.

Dixon seems to fill that she is entitled to more money than the 2,000 bucks she receives a month. The two have two sons 7 and 8 whom Dixon claims need more financial support. TI and his BM were together before his rise to fame, and it comes as no surprise that she would want more money seeing ow TIs income has increased!

Complex: Wait, she took a **** before or after? DMX: Yo, peep it. I was tired on tour, so I chose my girls, like, All right, come with me. She got in the bed. So, like Im walking up, Im just smelling sh*t! Straight shi*! Know what Im saying? I guess she heard me moving around or something, so she just jumped in the bed. So, Im there just waiting, just sleeping. I wake up, Im like, Yo, the sh*t smell up the whole ******* room! I go in the bathroom to take a piss, and see big ass logs of sh*t. Like four of them big logs of ****. But I noticed there was no toilet tissue in there. Complex: Interesting. Maybe she DMX: Nah, there was sh*t. Papers supposed to be the last thing in toilet. Paper goes on top of the sh*t. So I saw sh*t and no paper. Seeing as hes on something imma let this one pass! Janet Still Got It!
