Wow Bow doesn’t have to do this. He doesn’t. He can still make his name Bow Wow again. The rumor is that he got p##### off at Chris Brown and spit on his R&B counterpart. That’s word to Omarion! Anyway apparently at a show in Dallas, Wow Bow ended his set off and accused Brown of messing up his set. How? I’m not sure how. Chris Brown is the headliner of the show, but I don’t know what he did. Anyway, Wow Bow had to be restrained and out came the spit. I know this is only a rumor, but I have to ask: IS WOW BOW CRAZY?

Now that I got a good laugh out of that, you should know that Wow Bow has stated on the record that this never happened. Chris Brown hasn’t issued any denial.


OK, I know one doesn’t have anything to do with the other, but I thought I would say this anyway. Denzel Washington was voted in as American’s favorite movie star over other people like Tom Cruise and pal Will Smith. The American Gangster-slash-Great Debater topped the list for the second year in a row. If America likes Denzel, maybe they will like Obama. Clearly, race isn’t the issue. Racism is leaving America? Praise the Lawd!


Ice Cube recently checked in with the ‘Trey the Chocolate Jock Morning Jump-off’ (Power 92 Chicago) to promote his new movie. Morning Show co-host (and my homey) Kendra G. hit me up and gave me some exciting news about the ‘Friday’ sequels. Will there be a ‘Last Friday’ with Chris Tucker? This is what Ice Cube had to say to that:

‘I hope so! I can’t really say for sure because it depends on whether or not Chris (Tucker) wants to be a part of it. If he wants to be a part of it I will do it, if not I won’t do it because I think that’s what the people really want and we have to give the people what they want.’

For years, rumors circulated that the reason Chris Tucker was no longer affiliated with the ‘Friday’ sequels was because he was asking for too much money, basically he became too expensive! According to Ice Cube, ‘He is not too expensive, I have deep pockets!’ There you go! On the other side, maybe Chris isn’t interested in being seen as an N-Word? LMAO! “Last Friday’ without Chris Tucker is like a Monday morning. Step up Chris!


I often think about Foxy Brown. What she is doing. What she is thinking. What kind of slippers she is wearing. With that said, whenever there is some good news, I get excited. You all know that Foxy didn’t like her last album cover for Brooklyn Don Diva, right? Well, the issue was that it might be a bit too close to an album cover from Lil Kim. Well, they flipped the script and here is the new one:

From what I understand, the rapper will finally drop her CD on February 19th. Expact to see Mavado, Amy Winehouse, Grafh and others on the album.


JOELL ORTIZ OFF AFTERMATH? What in the Sam Hill is going on? From what I have been told, Joell Ortiz is no longer on Aftermath Entertainment, Dr. Dre’s label. I am not really sure how this happened, but it might be a good thing. Joell is really dope and Dre’s label isn’t an assembly line. He’ll be fine for certain.

Support the homey and buy his CD!

Melyssa Ford is now an actress that is starring in a movie with Russ Parr. Word? Ok, so that means Russ Parr is now an actor in a movie with Ms. Ford.

Naomi Campbell is rumored to be dating Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez for two months? Chavez is a gangster G. I approve.

Nukkas are saying that Jennifer Lopez might retire after she drops these babies. Good for her. She had a good run.

It is looking like T.I. is going to drop that album Papertrail before he comes to trial on gun charges.

Jill Scott better not pose nude for Allure magazine!

Remember how I told you that Snoop was getting his vows renewed with his wife Shante? I hear the Dogg Father was moved to tears with emotion. That’s cool with me. Just not those blubbering things T.O. did.

Is it possible that Beyonce is preggers? I’m just asking.

Listen to the new Young Buck song…its really dope. I like this one. Buck needs to be liberated. He’s too talented!


You can forget about Amy Winehoue being at the Grammys. They are saying homegirl has to take a drug test before getting on the show bill. SMH at this discrimination.

Here is the skinny from Now magazine.

Amy Winehouse could face drugs tests to prove she’s clean before jetting to the US for the Grammy Awards next month. The troubled singer is being lined up to headline the glitzy ceremony in LA but US officials reportedly want proof she’s sorted herself out before she crosses the pond.

‘Amy’s been told she needs to pass a drugs test before she can get a visa,’ a pal reveals. ‘She is doing much better and has cut down her drug use but still isn’t clean. Her team are desperate to clean her up as the Grammy’s is such a big deal. But Amy’s not so bothered.’

If they did this for everybody, nobody in entertainment would be on the lineup of any show.


Lil’ Duval has his way with T.O.’s life and makes a mockery of Cry-gate.

Here is T.O. again. “Its really unFIR.” Why didn’t McNabb get the crocodile tears?


I don’t know what to make of this one.

Here is the situation in a nutshell.

An 18-year-old man rapes his 8-year-old stepsister. The father of the girl takes man to an abandoned building and rapes him.

Now, here is the fleshed out version from the Star-Telegram.

The 18-year-old was arrested by Arlington police on suspicion of aggravated sexual assault. The girl was taken to the hospital where an examination revealed she’d been raped anally. And the father issued a stern warning to his wife.

But unbeknownst to the father, police say, the man’s wife posted bond for her son’s release from the Arlington Jail. When the teen called home for a ride on the early afternoon of Jan. 3, his stepfather answered the phone and arrived at the jail to pick up the teen.

But the pair didn’t go home, investigators say. Instead, the Arlington man reportedly drove his stepson to an abandoned house in east Fort Worth where he delivered his own brand of justice. Police say he severely beat the teen with a baseball bat, then anally raped him with a wrenchlike metal tool.

Good lord. When you look up revenge in the dictionary, there should put a picture of that man. What do you all think of that brand of vigilantism?


Is this the new album cover for Janet’s next masterpiece? I like the art of it..hope the music is artsy too.


I am not sure how Bizarre is trying to spin this, but it sure looks like he is just trying to make a quick buck for a verse. I think Eminem needs to break him off with a couple of duckets so he doesn’t have to put his verses on for sale like a K-Mart Blue Light Special.

TRAE…Just Watch!
