SCOTT STORCH STILL BALLIN?
We all know Scott Storch is a baller at heart. But is he a real life baller and we've all been duped? The producer was recently seen perusing in the Miami area at various car dealerships looking at exotic cars. Dude was seen driving in a droptop Rolls Royce Phantom and looking at a yellow Lamborghini. Those things can run almost to a half a milli. Way to go!
RICK ROSS SPEAKS AGAIN
Rick Ross recently talked to Don Diva magazine and spoke on the charges that he was once a correctional officer. He says his life is all real, like he once told AllHipHop.com I just hope hes not telling on himself in the interest of being real.
When Im making my music and Im talking about blow, its because I did it, the Miami rapper says. When I say Im rich off cocaine, its cause I did it I took a lot of losses in this game. I took losses in the street, losses in this music. I never ratted on a n***a I never locked up a n***a. I believe in the death penalty for rats.
JACK BAUER TO DO AN R&B ALBUM!?!
Kiefer Sutherland, the actor from 24 is reportedly working on an R&B album? HUH? Isnt he supposed to be working on saving the world? Rumor says, his singer name is K. Sutherland and the album will come out on his own Ironworks record label. I think this rumor might actually be true or a freaking joke!
At any rate, here is something thats not a rumor. 24 is coming back with a 2-hour prequel in November 08 and the regular season in January 2009!
JAY-Z SHOWED UP TO ROCK THE BELLS WITH NAS!
It all went down last night in New York! Ohhhhh yeah! Thank Aqua!
PAUL WALLS FRIEND WAS A GOOD KID
You know, on Friday I didnt get a chance to read the comments, but a few people did. One person complained about what the AHH Community was saying about Paul Walls friend that died. I dont know the character of the dude that was killed (and sparked rumors that Paul was killed). But, I read a report. The report said that all the men involved in the gunbattle wielded guns and the firefight occurred at 11:30 am. Apparently the man that was slain was Emmanuel Hobbs. Here are some quotes used to describe him. "A good kid, very responsible, very sweet. Not sure what went wrong, but something indeed went wrong if this is the person that was killed. Three others were wounded in the Houston shooting.
KHIA: 998 THOUSAND SHORT OF A MILLI!
Shelz told me that there was this ridiculous rumor that Khia's Nasti Muzik album was supposed to have sold over a million copies its first week. Im not sure when it came out, but am sure that I enjoy Khias music. It sooths my mind. But, selling mad units like is indeed mad. So when the numbers came in, Skelz said she was close, but no cigar. Lo and behold, Khia pushed about 1,400 in her first week. So she only has 998,600 to go. From illseed and Shelz we are rooting for Khia! Haters be damned!
MORE ON DR. DRE, BUSTA AND MR. PORTER
I heard there was a beat battle in Detroit and producer extraordinaire Mr. Porter was in the place to be. First, as you should know, Mr. Porter is a member of D12 and has been working for years on the Detox project with Dr. Dre. From what I heard, Porter played a number of his own tracks from the album. The only thing is, they didnt make the album. I heard they were all sick, but didnt fit.
What does fit really mean? I heard he played an incredible song with Busta Rhymes, Mary J, Jamie Foxx, and John Legend that was supposed to be on Detox. But the dope song isn't because of the fact that Busta is no longer on Interscope. Obviously, this isnt confirmed but it seems to be a rumor leaning on the truth. From what I am hearing about Detox is that there are going to be a lot of big stars on the opus. I have a feeling that this album is going to be ridiculously huge.
Maybe its time for Mr. Porter to do an album? You think? I do!
Detox is on the way: Do The Rog! Do The Rog!
THE OZONE AWARDS COMETH!Here's what's happening!

BILL OREILLY YAPS ABOUT OBAMA AND LUDACRIS
SHELZ WEIGHS IN ON RUMORVILLE!
Folks are Shooting in the Club Again .
Jermaine Dupri is hosting his annual So So Def Summerfest this weekend here in the A with events spread over the entirety of the three days. Friday night was a big party at Club Dreams, a huge venue in Dekalb County. Late into the night JD, Usher, Nelly and Diddy took the stage, but some real angry dude took all the attention. Seems folk were mad that they were getting double charged to get into the VIP section of the club. Well, they were getting charged to get into the club and then an additional fee was being charged to get to VIP which is how I thought it was supposed to be. But I guess the guy with the gun thought differently. Anyways, security told him no. He said huh? There was all this pushing, shoving and general disorder and then he shot one of the security guards in the elbow. Didz, Nellz, Usher and JD as well as the other famous folk in the club; Sanaa Lathan, Gabrielle Union and Larenz Tate to name a few were alright. The mad un-VIP gunman has not been identified.
SHELZ'S RANDOM QUOTES
Well, it looks like folks have been shaking their heads, rattling that lil jelly bean between their ears. Interviewers and bloggers were making our favorite artists think this week. Here are some of my favorite quotes:
David Banner on the whole Obama/Luda thing:
"I believe in my heart that Ludacris should have the ability to say what he wants to say, but why should Obama connect himself to any negativity right now? We need to get Obama in office and Obama has to play the middle role. I think we're too close to winning this thing to get off on frivolous stuff and to give people a reason to spit fire."
Kanye West on being named to the "Best Dressed" list in Vanity Fair
"I've sat in front of this computer for 20 minutes trying to put into words how I feel... who all to thank... and how to celebrate... this is a true honor and I am humbled by it!!!"
-Kanye humble? When pigs fly past a frozen over hell. We know he knows he totally deserved it!
The automated time count down for phone calls at whatever jail Prodigy currently calls home letting P know his time was about up.
"You have 30 seconds left on this phone call."
I think this was my favorite quote because it broke the monotony of listening to P drone on with his usual "Jay Z is a bitch" rant. We've heard it before P. We know you're still mad he called you a ballerina. Get over it.
Jay-Z on the "Put On" Remix
"I put Prodigy in his place on that summer jam screen"
Thanks, Jay! That one line will assure Prodigy will continue to babble on about S Dots bitchassness for decades to come.
Jackie-O on screwing for her advance
"I am not a whore!"
Well, it sounds more like sexual harassment at its most elevated level than hoe-ism to me, but some folks do see having sex for money as getting your whore on. So she should have expected the backlash.
Mims on his relationship with 106 and Park's hostess with the mostess
"I have never engaged in any sexual activity with Rocsi."
Sounds like one of those Clinton denials to me. Maybe G-Unit missed the mark with this one. Hmmmm.
LADY DRAMA COMETH!
YAY.......Bernie Mac is still kicking!
A midst those horrible rumors Bernie Mac is alive and recovering from a case of pneumonia. According to people.com the funny man is alive and being treated in a Chicago hospital. Read on:
Mr. Mac is responding well to treatment and will be released soon. He asked that his privacy and that of his family is respected while he gets well.
I wish him a expedited recovery! Glad to hear he's alive!
Nelly and TI get together.... Not like that ya'll are NASTY ;-)
So as usual my ears were to the streets and my eyes are glued to the monitor and low and behold I found out that Nelly and TI may be planning a joint album! According to Rap-up magazine the two rappers who both have solo albums releasing this year have thought about coming together on an album project! During a recent interview with Rap Up magazine Nelly stated:
We talked about doing a joint together, a whole album, the St. Louis rapper disclosed to the magazine. Its not about just selling records for me anymore cause Ive done that. Its about making something that people will remember.
Now although both rappers have collaborated with each other on different tracks for each of their albums I don't know if I could stand a whole album with them both! I can hardly stomach but so much of them one at a time let alone both! Not hatin I'm just saying! What do you all think?
Speaking of Nelly...... Congrats to him for joing the CSI cast, I hear he'll be playing a club owner! Good look! See I give respect and props when it's due guys!
Lady Drama's Food For Thought:
Who was really hurt when they thought Bernie Mac really died? Aww :-(
I hear Mya was photo'd with a wedding ring on... It's about time someone wife'd that up, she needed something major to happen in her life cause her career is null and void!
Word is Chris Brown and Rihanna may be having issues but why is it that when a celebrity couple decides to do something separate they're having problems.... Why can't they just be tired of seeing a mofo's face once in a while damn!
Am I the only one anxious to see Diddy's new show on VH1 tomorrow? It's so sweet to see people make fools of themselves on cable TV at someone else's expense! I LOVE it ;-)
Remember go hard or go home!
A TRIBE CALLED QUEST!
Nas and Jay got people hype, but from what I heard, A Tribe Called Quest were the real stars of the show. The entire group and friends like Busta Rhymes and Consequence killed it! DJ Scratch, former DJ for EPMD, is now down with Q-Tip. Erick and P lost one right there.
DAVID BANNER VENTS ABOUT THE GAME
He doesn't always finish his sentences, but you have to respect the passion Banner brings to the table. So all you "inspiring" rappers, take notes.
THIS IS BREAKIN' : ELECTRIC BOOGALOO
When are Turbo and Ozone gonna get a Hip-Hop Honor?!
Phil Spector's murder trial is about to start and guess what he decided to do? ENDORSE BARACK OBAMA! (See the little button that say "Barack Obama Rocks!") Barack must be overjoy that such a musical genius-slash-wack job has endorsed him. This makes Ludacris look like Hanna Montana. Look at his deranged face, lip and that fabulous wig. Barack really does rock!
YESTERDAY, WE LOVE YOU!
They keep us talking, but if we stop talking about them then they should worry!
