YOUNG JEEZY COMMENTS ON KEYSHIA COLE
You know, there have been persistent rumors about Jeezy and Keyshia Cole. Well, it seems like these two are no longer any sort of item. Now, Jeezy makes a comment that says a lot if you read in between the lines.
AllHipHop.com: So what¹s your take on Keisha Coles article in Essence Magazine?
Young Jeezy: Aww man, ya know, I guess it's publicity season everybody trying to sell records. Cant knock her for that but I aint really tripping because that dont pertain to me. She cant obviously be talking about me. Its publicity season, everybody's doing what they do, so I guess that's what that is.
If you dont know, Keyshia made reference to her breaking up a long-term relationship with a rapper that had a 10-year-old son. She expressed that she had grown close to the kid and missed him.
Here is that blurb from Essence:
I just couldnt do it. Its weird. After this guy proposed to me, I was like, dang, this is everything a woman lives for: to be married, with a ring, to be able to represent something. But for me, it was the opposite. I was scared. When you get married, you become one; you dont live just for yourself anymore. Im just not ready for that. Im not done with my goals in life. Whats the word when you just kind of fall back and let your man do the man thing? Submit? Im all jacked up on that word. I just couldnt submit. But I loved him. Thats the crazy thing about it. Its been hard because I really missed that child.
SPIDER LOC NEEDS A MANAGER!
We all thought Spider Loc left G-Unit, but thats not the case. He just needs a good manager. Click here to read a statement he wrote to correct the erroneous rumor that he had left the Unit.
"SPIDER IS SELF MANAGED, I DONT HAVE NO MANAGER AND I WAS SHOOTIN A TELEVISION SHOW DURING THAT TOUR I WAS ON THE WARNER BROS. LOT AS A GUESS STAR ON COLD CASE ALONG SIDE TOM BERRY AND SOME MORE ACTING VETS, I WOULD HAVE LOVED TO BE IN NY BUT I HAD TO GET MY MONEY FAM, CHECC ME OUT ON THE NEW SEASON OF COLD CASE EPISODE NUMBER 6 "DA WONDERKIND" THE CHARACTER NAME IS DELONTE, BE ABOUT YA MONEY AT ALL COST FOLKS G WEST"
"SPIDER AINT NEVA SAID HE'S NEVA SIGNED A DEAL, THE ONLY DEAL IVE EVA SIGNED OR THE FIRST ONE WAS WITH G UNIT / INTERSCOPE / UNIVERSAL IN SUMMER OF 05"
WHY DETOX ISNT OUT!?!
There are a number of theories and there are a number of facts. Here are the theories (rumors) and the facts will come afterwards. Here is what I was given by a person that has a pretty decent inroad to the Detox situation. Basically, the rumor says that Detox doesnt have a lead rapper to anchor it. Think Snoop Dogg and Eminem. Now, I thought this would have been Bishop Lamont (or The Game if they didnt have a falling out), but its not looking clear. So, I heard that Dre has discovered a new talent (who shall remain nameless for now) and that hes recorded about three songs for Detox. Now, from what I heard Jay-Z will be on one of the singles for the Detox album and it will also feature this new artist.
Here are some facts, from the Los Angeles Times, who interviewed Dre.:
Dr. Dre on working out:
"That's another of my obsessions. I go in the gym two to 2 1/2 hours Monday through Friday. It makes me feel better and look better. I feel like I can kick a brick wall down now."
"I was really hoping to have it out this year, but it's going to have to be pushed back a while because of some other things I've got to work on," he continues, sitting in the lounge of the recording studio where he spends all those hours behind the buttons. He's still two or three tracks away from calling it finished, he says.
On the future:
"When I think of the future, I think a lot of Quincy Jones and how he is an inspiration," Dre says. "Look at the quality of his work over so many years. He didn't even make his best record, 'Thriller,' until he was 50. That gives me something to look forward to. Nothing pulls you back into the studio more than the belief that your best record is still ahead."
COMMON DAY IN CHI-TOWN
I was all caught up with AHH Week and missed some goodies. Chicago radio station Power 92 and the City of Chicago recently proclaimed Sept. 20th as "Common Day" in Chicago. The proclamation event took place at the historical Regal Theater in Chicago. The event was hosted by my homegirl, Chicago radio host, Kendra G. According to Kendra G., Common was very humbled by the whole experience. I know you true Common fans are screaming it's about time, but hey, better late than never! Although Common has been representing for the Chi for almost 15 years he just recently started to receive commercial success. His latest album Finding Forever debuted at number one on the billboard album charts. Big ups to the Chi-town MC! He just inspired me! What do I have to do to get "Illseed Day" declared on the East Coast?
JAY-Zs VIDEO TRAILER
Interesting Jay-Z is going all out with this Blue Magic stuff. He has a trailer for the video. I dont know if this is official or not, but it is of interest and very timely.
IS LL COOL J GOING TO BATTLE JAY-Z?
Speaking of Jay-Z...I dont think anybody mentions names, but I think I smell a challenge coming down the line from Mr. Cool J. LL vs Jay-Z? That would be very interesting. Lets face it, LL has vanquished every foe hes faced. Jay-Z has bodied almost everybody as well. Anyway, Blok TV got with LL at the AHH Fashion show during AHH Week 2007.
EVERYBODY LOVES JIM JONES
The VH1 guys chop it up with Jim Jones as he counts money for Max B and his bail...only thing is they made him mad.
TALIB KWELI ROCKED IT!
Did you get to the AllHipHop Rebirth Concert at the Nokia Theater in NYC? If not, here is Talibs portion with Jean Grae. Also present was Joe Budden, Cassidy, Swizz Beatz and Mike Millz (Alicia Keys artist who did very well). Shoutout to AHH friend Gentle Jones. No relation to Jim.
SIGNS THE WORLD IS COMING TO AND END (FOR BLACK MEN)
A new study suggests that the stress and strain of racism and discrimination might be shortening the life span of Black men. According to the UCLA Center on Research, Education, Training and Strategic Communication on Minority Health Disparities, Black premature death can in-part be blamed on racism. They do make the distinction, between real and perceived racism. (I think with the Jena 6, Sean Bell, the WV torture-rape victim and other unpublicized incidents, we can say that there is a basis for this in 07.)
The reaction contributes to a chain of biological events known as the stress response, which can put people at higher risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes and infectious disease, says Namdi Barnes, a researcher with the UCLA center. That protective response includes the release of cortisol, often called the stress hormone. It increases blood pressure and blood sugar levels and suppresses the immune system. Those are all good things when it comes to fleeing a wild beast or a suspicious sound in a dark parking lot. But for many African Americans, these responses may occur so frequently that they eventually result in a breakdown of the physiological system.
"This whole phenomenon of cumulative biologic stress is real," says Nicole Lurie, director of the Rand Center for Population Health and Health Disparities.
ANOTHER PROBLEM FOR DE LA HOYA
I am not a Photoshop expert, so I cannot verify the validity of an image. All I do is look at it and if it seems real it LOOKS real. With that, my girl Slj140 sent me a new report on Oscar De La Hoya. Im a fan of the guy for one, but a stripper has opened her trap to speak on him. According to News of the World, a UK website, Oscar likes to be called Goldie and dominated. Milana Dravnel is her name and she said that the Champ likes to get freakin freaky like Adina Howard times 10. She did say that they never had sex, just played around and whatnot.
She told NOTW:
"He loved to dress up in lingerie. He would strip down naked in front of me and try on outfits. He asked me to bring him clothes he could wear and loved the fishnet tights and wigs.
"Once he borrowed my glitzy full length sash dress and pranced around the room singing in a woman's voice, saying: Ooooh, look at me'.
And here is the picture she provided them. If this is a bad photoshop, somebody has a serious lawsuit on the way. Oscar says all of the images are FAKE, just so you know.
This sounds a lil silly, but I heard that MF Doom had a heart attack. I heard that over in Japan they even had a moment of silence at a show where the rapper was supposed to perform.
Saigon has finished his new video. Finally, we are starting to see some forward progress. If you count his duffng out Prodigy, thats backwards movement.
Rumor has it Shyne will be home in time for X-Mas.
Bushwick Chuckwick Bill gets a starring role in the next Childs Play? Just a rumor.
UGLY RICKY GETS UGLIER
Over the weekend, at a club in Tallahassee Pleasure P of Pretty Ricky was there allegedly dissing everybody in his group and saying he was emancipated. I heard he also got on the mic and dissed T-Pain for some reason. . I guess PP lives in Tally now and allegedly said, Yo, T-Pain from Tally, but I run Tally! T-Pain Claims ATL now." I dont think thats true at all. P was wilding, I heard, so maybe he was just a lil Tipsy. Shout out to FAMU, because one of the people there hit me with the audio.
