“We love you Kanye. We got you. Stay strong,” Jay-Z.

On the real, the Hip-Hop community is feeling for Kanye and his loss. I heard that nearly all of Roc-A-Fella Records will be flying to Chicago for funeral and memorial services for Donda West, Kanye’s doting mother. Here is a statement I got from a rep at The Roc, “We are saddened by the loss of Ms. West. The offices of Roc-A-Fella will be totally empty today by request of Mr. Carter.” Kanye did what he said to do: “If you admire somebody, you should gon’ head [and] tell ‘em / People never get the flowers, while they can still smell ‘em.”” Kanye’s mother had mad flowers.

Instead of flowers, Kanye West and his family request that donations be made in Dr. West’s name to Kanye West Foundation/Loop Dreams Teacher Training Institute at 8560 W. Sunset Blvd., West Hollywood, CA 90069. Donations may also be made at http://www.kanyewestfoundation.org.

R.I.P O.D.B.

Russell Tyrone Jones (November 15, 1968 – November 13, 2004). You know, O.D.B. was a rare breed. I loved the guy for his lyrics, his humor and energy. AllHipHop.com got Ol’ Dirt Dog right as he got out of jail. He was funny, but at the same time, I think he was trying to say something. Peep this clip and tell me your thoughts. Also, check out my ODB dedication at the bottom.


Ironically, I got this on Veterans Day, but a friend of T.I.’s former bodyguard has strong words for those of you that have been talking bad about him. Check out the letter. I had to remove a couple of the names because I didn’t want to implicate any of your favorite trap stars.

“I am writing as a friend to the ex bodyguard of T I. I know the bodyguard very well and everything that’s being said isn’t true. He asked me not to say anything but, I’m getting tired of idiots talking about this man like they know the full story and they haven’t heard his side. I served in Iraq with the bodyguard. He was Special Forces and the man saved my life. He took a bullet for me. People think that this started with the bodyguard when actually it started with a young man in T.I. camp. He is a 16 or 17-year-old boy who runs his mouth to much. I also know that he never went into a gun store asking how could he buy some unregistered guns. We need to here both their stories before we cast judgments on them. I believe both of them made a mistake that they regret. I am a T.I. fan. I have bought all of his albums but, I am the bodyguard’s friend and he saved my life in Iraq. The man took a bullet for me. So believe me, if someone run up on him. They will have to deal with a lot more than just him. They may have goons but, he has soldiers watching his back. This isn’t a rumor.”

So, I had to edit some of the details, because I am not about to have the trial start on my rumor page. But I will say that this person places blame on somebody else within the T.I. camp on why the Feds came crashing down. I’m not co-signing at all.


What’s this I hear? I heard Ray-J hanging out with Lil’ Kim for more reasons than the obvious. He’s about to drop his slammin’ new rap CD, which is supposed to be underground. We all know nothing Ray-J does is underground. Even his sex tapes come to the surface! Anyway, the album is called Ray-J Uncut and it’s a lot of raps where Rayster is bragging about the girls he taps like his name was Luke or something. Anyway, I heard Lil’ Kim is on this album…but I heard that Ray-J cold gets ill. He allegedly accuses Paris Hilton of giving him herpes. Then there is the question of this audio with Kim Kardashian…

Remember that voicemail tape released where Kim K. repeatedly called Ray-J “sick?” Well, I heard that was a set up. I heard that Ray and Kim K. were in cahoots and did the “angry” tape as promotion for his CD and the sex DVD that the two are in – again. .


Check out the pics of Jay-Z live on stage at the Hammerstein…Lil’ Wayne was even there. So was Jadakiss!

Who saw Frank Lucas on Star Jones on Court TV? Shout out to Jalewisxx for tipping me off. I’m having a hard time pinning Lucas down. Star called Frank the “most charming sociopath she has ever dealt with in her whole life.”

Uh-Oh…there is a rumor that Twista may have been dropped by Atlantic Records.

50 Cent had a hell of a time choosing what to drive to an after party in the UK –McLaren, top, or a Maybach! I forget what he picked…who cares!

Let Snoop back in the UK! Remember that fight Snoop had? The UK Hip-Hop community is rebelling! Here is a petition to get Snoop back in the UK!

Robin Thicke canceled his US tour at the last minute, because of a vocal ailment, according to reports.

Yo man! Saigon’s CD has been pushed back to 08. Sai has reportedly stated that its not ready. It’s been like crazy long! What’s up!?

Do you think its possible that Andre 3000 and Erykah Badu would ever do an album together? That’s what I am hearing.

Remember Jay-Z and Diddy got together and gave all that money to Katrina relief? Well, I heard they are doing something philanthropic again. No, not the American Gangster CD either.

My girl Toccara got a man? I heard she has been seen walking hand-in-hand with Lamman Rucker (Why Did I Get Married?) at the American Black Film Festival.

Kim Kardashian’s show has been picked up for a second season. Why aren’t Armenian people in an uproar!?



Am I wrong for thinking that Pepa of Salt-N-Pepa looks like LaToya Jackson, Michael’s sister?


Rumor has it, the lipstick Paris Hilton was wearing complained of a burning sensation. YUCK!


That fool is crazy – hitting that woman like that. Imagine him getting p##### during a root canal!


Louisiana State Rep. Carla Blanchard Dartez to the NAACP’s rep Hazel Boykin, thanking her for driving voters to the polls:

“Talk to you later, Buckwheat.” [YO, I love the outright racism – in yo’ face, n-word!]

Darius “Eddie Winslow” McCrary on Karrine “Superhead” Steffans (Sister 2 Sister):

“If you’re gonna turn a ho into a housewife, that’s the one to get.” (That’s not right, Eddie!)

Ja Rule on being married (Sister 2 Sister):

“I’m a family man. I love my family…[I’ve] been married six years.”

Beyonce is not ghetto. Reno, Nevada people are heated at a billboard of Beyonce in a bikini (Las Vegas Sun):

“It’s obscene. I have my two little grand kids coming over here, and they don’t need to be seeing that. You can change the channel on the TV, but you can’t change that. If you come out here it now dominates the skyline. It just screams of degradation, it screams of ghettoizing a good neighborhood.” (So what is a beach considered?)

A reader wrote this:

“Why do you throw 911 conspiracy theories in a Rumors section made for Hip-Hop?

Have you forgotten what you are supposed to report? 911 was real and for any of you f**king morons that don’t believe it and think the U.S. is at fault, then do all of us a favor and go and fight with the terrorists…” (I do what I want, Jarred.)

King Kong ain’t got s**t on these kids! I can’t even write around this one. Check out part of an AP report right here.

Two thrill-seeking teenagers stabbed an adult acquaintance, took a blowtorch to his corpse and threw his severed head into a river, prosecutors said Monday as they charged the pair.

Alexander Letkemann, 18, left, and Jean Orlewicz, 17, are accused of planning the slaying of a 26-year-old acquaintance earlier this month. The victim’s hands and feet reportedly were burned with a blowtorch in a possible effort to conceal his identity.

Canton High School senior Jean Pierre Orlewicz, 17, and Alexander James Letkemann, 18, ambushed 26-year-old Daniel Sorenson on Wednesday in a garage owned by Orlewicz’s grandfather, Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy said. A tarp had been spread on the floor, she said.

“They lured him in the garage, where they prepared a space to kill him,” Worthy said at a news conference.

Sorenson, who had worked as a bouncer, was stabbed multiple times in the back, his head sawed off and his body wrapped in the tarp, authorities said. Orlewicz and Letkemann burned his hands and feet with a blowtorch, possibly in an effort to conceal his identity, Worthy said.

They are looking at life in jail and 10 other years for mutilating a dead body.
