TODAY'S RUMORS!RUMOR: JENNIFER HUDSON MAY HAVE BEEN KILLERS TARGET
I just got this from MissDallasTx214, one member of the Ill Community. Rumor has it, Jennifer Hudson was the real target of these sick killers. All of this is alleged and obviously not fact.:
According to the National Enquirer, Jennifer Hudson may have been the real target of William Balfour - the man who brutally murdered Jennifer's mother, brother and nephew.
Here's how they describe what set William off:
Julia [Hudson's] mother kicked [William] out of the family home last May because of his drug dealing, and he was furious. He vowed to Julia that her family would regret it and said he'd kill Jennifer ... He knew Jennifer was the most important person in their lives and that her death would devastate them...
He also said he was going to kidnap [7 year old] Julian and she'd never see him again. And he said, 'Then when your famous sister gets back into town, I'll do her too!' said the source.
On why no one had him arrested for making threats:
"Jennifer and Julia thought he wouldn't do anything that would send him back to jail," said one source.
LIL WAYNES CARTER 4 IN 09?!?
First of all, Lil Wayne did manage to make it to the Izod Center in New Jersey. Jay-Z was there too and a lot of people were hopeful that the two would rock the stage together. No dice. In fact, Lil Wayne left the whole venue before Jay finished his set. Wayne is bout his business.
Speaking of business, somebody told me that Lil Wayne is NOT high all the time and is very much about his business in this music game. One of his friends hit me up and wanted that to be made very clear. Well, its good to know and that takes me to my next Wayne rumor.
The Carter 4 is supposedly coming out in Feb of 2009. Wayne is attempting to put the the game in a strangle hold and wont let up. Whew. Scary! Anyway, it would be cool to see him and Jay perform or tour together.
JAY-Z PUSHED BACK TIL 09!
Jay-Z has come out in the 4h quarter for so long, I cannot remember the last time he didnt drop then. Well, the next time is now. The rappers Blueprint 3 album is looking like its going to come out in March of 2009. There you go The Carter Tour! We do know a few good things about this album. Part of that is Jay and Kanye have recorded a number of songs. I am hoping there is a lack of vocoder in them. Speaking of the vocoder why is Diddy doing a whole CD of that mess? I like Diddy, but this is nuts!
KANYE LEAVING THE US FOR INTERNATIONAL WATERS?
I dont know why Kanye hasnt come to New York to do a listening party for his new album. I dont know if thats a good or bad sign. Maybe its no sign. Anyway, the point is, I heard he is going to be doing a listening session in some international places in a couple of weeks. My sources say that this will be no ordinary party, because hell be playing his album on a boat. I wonder if that is some odd security measure or just hot?
I hear Kanye has also found a new artist in the UK by the name of Mr. Hudson. Not to be funny, but I somehow thought that was somehow related to Jennifer Hudson. Hudson is down with Kanye via his GOOD Music imprint. More on that soon.
AMY WINEHOUSE WILL NEVER SING AGAIN?
We may never hear Amy Winehouse sing again, accoding to rumors and reports. She was just hospitalized for a chest infection. But the rumor is, her voice has been irreparably damaged through the consumption of drugs. She might never get to crank out another album. On top of that, she is supposedly working on a new CD, but the material isnt there. Shes way behind schedule and there is concern at the label. It seems odd that an addict of this stature is allowed to work on new material in such a state of sickness. Oh, I forgot..thats the music game they dont give a f**k about you like that.
JOE THE PLUMBER GETS A RECORD DEAL?
WOW. Just when you thought the election couldnt get any stranger, somebody went and offered Joe The Damn Plumber a record deal. Dont get too crazy though. They want Joe to record a country and Western album to capitalize off his new fame. I got this from Jigsaws twitter:
Joe aka Samuel Wurzelbacher, a Holland, Ohio, pipe-and-toilet man just signed with a Nashville public relations and management firm to handle interview requests and media appearances, as well as create new career opportunities, including a shift out of the plumbing trade into stage and studio performances.
On Tuesday, Wurzelbacher joined country music artist and producer Aaron Tippin to form a new partnership that includes booking-management firm Bobby Roberts and publicity-management concern The Press Office to field the multiple media offers hes received over the past few weeks.
Among the requests: a possible record deal with a major label, personal appearances and corporate sponsorships. A longtime country music fan, Wurzelbacher can sing and knocks around on guitar but is not an accomplished musician or songwriter, according to The Press Offices Jim Della Croce.
WHITNEY AND BOBBY ARE BACK TOGETHER!?!?!
Whitney and Bobby are back together? Kinda sorta! There are rumors that the pair will both appear on the UK version of Celebrity Big Brother. Whitney Houston, I believe, has already been confirmed for the show and Bobby was brought to the table later down the line. Now, this has plenty of time to fall through, because the show isnt set until January of 09. Whitney is 45 and Bobby is now 39. I can see this is going to be craaaaaazy!
HIP-HOP IN NYC!
Last NY was poppin. While I was a little worried that the crowd might be a little light because of the Jay Z and Wayne concert, NYC (read that here) did not dissapoint. At Roseland Ballroom Estelle Gym Class Hero's and The Legendary Roots Crew put in work to a packed house and it was banannas!!!!!!! First Estelle did her thing, and she souded "suprisingly" good, although her band was more of a fascade than actual musicians. They actually played their instruments about 20 percent fo the time. Next up was Gym Class Hero's they were hype and to be honest I aint even a big fan of theirs like that but they did their thing to the delight of everyone in the audience. Then came The Roots.. The Roots are legendary and just when you think that they might be running out of tricks, they bring out Q-Tip and he performs his single "Getting Up" . The Crowd goes nuts.. Then you hear BROOOOOOOOOOKLLLLLYYYYN, and MOS DEF comes out and performs with Black Thought.. I thought the roof was gonna pop off the place. Also there were other celebrities in the building, Jimmy Fallon was there bouncing around like a ping-pong ball all night, up and coming punk rock singer PATTY CRASH was seen floating around and the beautifully delicous looking Zoe Kravitz was seen in the VIP kicking it. Overall it was a great night in NY..
Dont forget to tell me whats going on in your neck of the city or woods.
IMPROPER CREDIT GOING ON LUDACRIS ALBUM?
I dont have too many people that I am cool with in the music game. Everybody is shady, but one person that has been real cool. Wyldfyer. Good guy, great producer. Anyway, the point? Ludacris album is about to come out it features a lot of great songs and great producers. He did a couple songs on the album, Last of a Dying Breed Feat. Lil Wayne and I Do It for Hip Hop, which is going to feature Nas. On the rumor tip Jay-Z may be added to that song. Wouldnt that be a nice end-of-the-year treat? Anyway, Wyldfyer did the songs. Also, the improper credit is coming from the internet.
Somebody is lying in this J-Hud murder case, because you dont cut hands off a child unless you are trying to send a real message. Sick.
Here is some more BS. Obama wants to pay for his 30 min slot on ABC and they wont let him. SMH at Disney. I wonder if people know his real history anyway. I cant believe Obama is pushing the World Series wig back on TV!

Murphy Lee reportedly has a new project called Murph or Die. After hearing that, why did I just envision all types of dead people all over in my head? No good.

Dr. Dre has sued the mess out of a former friend. According to tmz, Bruce Williams allegedly owes the good Doc $101,377.85 and now it seems that he cannot pay it back. I think Dre might be upset that his bud "Rollin' With Dre: The Unauthorized Account - An Insider's Tale of the Rise, Fall, and Rebirth of West Coast Hip Hop." Epic fail.
Kwame Kilpatrick was sentenced to 120 days in jail. Another Epic fail that I hope becomes a win one day.
I heard Busta Rhymes has also been pushed back to February 2009.
We thought we would see any Eminem album, but nope. I am hearing that that lil buddy isnt going to see the light of day until 2009 too.

Will people please give Joe Budden created for creating the saying Hi Hater ? Please act like you know. There is a group down South saying Maino took it from them. A few years ago, Budden was saying this phrase on just about every other song and even his first album. Peep this song (2:15):
GLASSES MALONE EXPLAINS JOE BUDDEN DISS
I dont know what Joe Budden said in the first place, but he has confirmed with AHH Staff that there is no beef at all. Oh yeah, I am sure I am late, but The Game and joe Budden have a song called The Future, but we probably wont hear it until next year. This is a lot of Joe Budden today, sorry.

SIGNS THE WORLD IS COMING TO AN END
This is certainly a sign the world is coming to an end! Rupert Murdoch is the founder of Fox News and oddly, a fan of Barack Obama. His own paper, the NY Post endorsed Obama and he didnt like that at all.
FOXS FOUNDER PREDICTS OBAMA WILL WIN! THE APOCALYPSE IS UPON US!
If that wasnt a good enough sign for you, check this out from Yahoo News:
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. A Florida teenager has been sentenced to 18 months in juvenile detention for coaxing his senile grandmother into holding a gun and threatening to shoot "all the pigs" in a homemade "gangster rap" video.
Eighteen-year-old Michael Alfinez pleaded guilty Tuesday to elder abuse charges. His family has said the case was a misunderstanding.
The 85-year-old grandmother can be seen in the video holding a handgun, wearing a black mask and threatening to shoot "all the pigs."
Alfinez was arrested in April after authorities seized the tape during a routine traffic stop. Alfinez and others also could be seen in the video shooting a pistol around town.
Alfinez also pleaded guilty to charges of firing out of a moving vehicle and into a building.
(Am I wrong for wanting to see the video?)
If you are grown, you remember the Whassup beer commercials from the 90s or early 2000s. Well, here is the updated version.
Just for fun, here is the original that spawned zillions of copy cats before the youtube era.
EPIC FAIL OF THE DAY

EPIC WIN OF THE YEAR!
SHOUT OUT TO THE PHILLIES! All you haters, sit down and shut it up! Now, I have to say that there are rumors! I heard that there was total chaos from the Philly fans after the win. I dont know if you people know but Philly fans are the craziest in the Unitied States. Fans outside Citizens Bank Parking lot were buggin! I heard they were breaking bottles on cars and tried to light fire to a damn SUV! Then I heard they started to fight with the police. Obviously, the cops won, but that SUV took a loss. When it was all said and done, that sucker was turned over and jacked up. the police. By then, the crowd had also completely overturned a green Ford Explorer. Congrats to the Phils!
THE ILLEST SUPER GROUP SINCE THE 1990S
I know a certain label that saw this youtube and is looking to lock down the illest super group since the 1990s. The super group is: Crooked I, Royce Da 59, Joe Budden and Joell Ortiz. The group name will allegedly be called Slaughterhouse. Crooked isnt here, but he reportedly got NYC today to meet with the rest of the dudes. Check out the youtube link below of all the guys politikin.
