THE DAILY TWO SENSE
First of all, check out Jigsaws column on how Twitter Will End Your Music Career. It is a MUST read for any artist out there and anybody interested in the blogging/video/social media scene.
So, moving on, I am really sad to say, this was a weird week for rumors. Nothing crazy happened! I dont know. I guess, well see! Continue to send me your artist sightings and anything else that you may hear.
EMINEM'S BROTHER'S MUG SHOT

REDMAN TELLS IT!

LA REID DEEMS 50 CENT "ONE OF THE ALL TIME GREATS!"Charlie Rose is one of the greats as far as journalists are concerned. He got LA Reid, head of Def Jam, to say the following:
"50 Cent is one of the all time greatest [rappers]. He's one of the greats. First of all, he had a great voice and as a rapper, an amazing voice. He was authentic, he is also a great song writer, right? So they were evenly matched for the sort of battle. And I think Kanye, at that point, had the better song...I like to believe it's always the great song. It's always the song...[But] a good artist with a great song can be a one-hit wonder. It can be number one...Some of the greats don't always go for a number one record...Or Jay-Z who in my opinon is the Frank Sinatra of our day has had many, many hits and has huge success but Jay told me he had never had a number one pop record. But he has more number one albums than any artist alive...But I
do know he won't jeopardize his integrity to get a number one record." Do you agree?!
ILLSEED'S PLUS 1 These taxes are biting people BADLY. Apparently, he owes $500,000! Half a milli in taxes! Read about it here. Good luck X to the Z. I will support whatever you are doing!Because the rumors are coming in slowly, I am going to try to add on during the day a bit right here.The dude that put the Domino's Pizza in his nasty nose has been arrested, along with the female that video tapedit. What idiots!I just heard that a famous Black actor in a famous Boxing movie not named Mr. T is gay.Also, I want to comment on something from a ways back. Somebody said I tried to slander that transexual that got raped. I did not. Rape isn't cool. And if I thought it was, I wouldn't broadcast it. Amy Winehouse is working on a children's book. Hmmm...I wonder if it will serve as an anti-drug PSA?
I knew Jada's new album wasn't the last kiss! Caption this!
Caption this! What are Latifah and Aunt Viv saying?
Jeezy and Boosie did an Easter Egg Hunt!
I know Dougie Fresh has to be feeling some kind of way about Biz on the Beat!
Boxing ROYALTY! Sugar Ray Leonard, Iron Mike Tyson and Sugar Shane Mosley!
Ice-T is aging, but he's still the man. Sorry, kids.
Classic ILL PIC!
It was all good...13 years ago.
JAY-Z'S MOTHER DOES GOOD!
I was talking to my dude JG over at Shaw University in NC. He told me earlier this week he was with some kids from his job in Columbus, Ohio and happened to come across some of the NYC students that were from the Shawn Carter Foundation. As if it wasn't cool enough to see the Hova Foundation supporting the youth of NY, their chaperon introduced herself as none other than Gloria Carter aka Mama Hov. I didnt even know jay-Z STILL did this! You know, these stars do stuff and is just for show and then it disappears. But Jays doing it and including his mother. Dope! JG told me she was a real cool lady and used the word non-descript. She introduced herself (allow me to re-introduce myself, Im Mama Hov H to the OV!!) and went back to tending to her kids but the family resemblance was undeniable. Thanks JG aka your favorite rappers favorite poet.
SHOOTING AT RICK ROSS SHOW
This was kind of crazy. I have to say, when bullets fly, I fly out! I dont play it cool at all. Im not like Rick Ross or Scarface.
LIL KIM IN SCOTT STORCHS MESS
Lil Kim must have the bomb choch! Scott Storch gave her the leased Bentley that sent him to the slammer! I wonder what happened to that sucker? Looks like Lil Kim will have to testify in court next month. Will they brand her like they branded Cease!? LOL! Nah, no dis to Cease. Speaking of Cease, does anybody know what happened to Maino and the NYPD? Moving along
IS FERGIE BALDING?
I have to say, I am getting desperate for good rumors when I start talking about the follicles in Fergies head. Anyway, somebody took a picture of Fergie and her hair seemed a bit thin at the top. I dont know man. Who cares right? Anyway, they are saying that Fergie might be losing her hair because she is under a tremendous amount of stress or she is experiencing unfavorable changes in her diet. I hope Fergie gets help and I will take all advice from her doctor, because I am trying to grow and afro and its not working.
OJ DA JUICE MAN TALKS ABOUT GETTING SHOT 8 TIMES
Remember when getting shot, meant something? Now, you can get shot survive, and nobody really cares. But we care about the music from OJ Da Juice man! Hes a strong dude. Did a week show after getting shot! WOW.
The Game is on his way back. Here is the stuff that's going around! The Game is reportedly working with Kanye, Timbaland, Cool & Dre and DJ Premier!
Juelz Santanta and Skull Gang are on their way! They are coming out soon. I wonder how they are going to contend with this UK situation. Its getting hectic.
INTERESTING AD, KANYE
Kanye did an ad for something hes selling and he decided to do his girl Amber another solid. Pause. He put her in the ad, even though weve been hearing they are no longer an item. The gift that keeps on giving.
HULK HOGAN EATS HIS WORDS
A rep sent out the following statement: "Hulk in no way condones the O.J. situation. As part of a larger conversation, he referred to it to exemplify his frustration with his own situation."
His wife's rep issued the following statement, "We are taking these recent comments seriously... We have always maintained that the fear that Linda has had to live with comes from the rage and instability much too often associated with pro wrestlers."
JD BEEFS WITH BLOGGERS AND BOW WOW WANTS TO EAT JOE BUDDEN'S GIRL
SMH. "No disrespect to Joe, I'll eat it, my n***a."
Cats need to log off.
EPIC WIN OF THE DAY
Somebody decided to do this mock conversation between Foxy and Lil Kim. CLASSIC.
SIGNS THE WORLD IS COMING TO AN END
What the hell? A damn porn star rapper has come out and dissed Rick Ross! B. Pumper has a song called "Cut It Out Ricky" -- WTF!?
EPIC FAIL OF THE DAY
People are losing their minds. A man decided it was a good idea...to stand up during a flight to Hawaii and PEE on a fellow passenger. Jerome Kenneth Kingzio, 28, of Saipan, Northern Marina Islands was sentenced to 21 day in jail for assault. No, he didn't hit a person...he PEED on her! A 66-year-old woman got the R. Kelly treatment from this perverted monk during a March 21 flight from Los Angeles to Honolulu, the Honolulu. The old woman was watching a movie when the golden shower started to rain. I swear...people are crazy.
READER OF THE DAY
What in the heck is going on. This is regarding the book cover that oddly had Jay-Z on the cover. Read this unedited letter for a great reader named Kristen.
Hi illseed and everyone else!!! I read your posts everyday and generally never have any gripes but toddy is another story!!I just want to make a comment on the posting that was on the site today. I am not trying to come off as being mean i just want you to know your facts before you start making a diss!!! Olaudah Equiano was a British Black man who fought for the abolishment of slavery in the 1700's. He was first enslaved at the age of eleven and refused to change his name to the name that his slave master gave him. It is a lot more to this story but I am pretty sure you aren't interested. All I am saying is when you put a story on your site do a little research first because he is one of our African ancestors that tried to do some good for us black people. Also he did write the book but someone else obviously decided that the only way to draw readers now a days is by depicting a portrait of Jay-Z so when you say "sic em Jay" you are making a positive situation into a negative one. If Jay-Z has any common sense he would be happy that his ugly ass is even on the cover of that book. I believe the Illustrator and Publishing Company decided to put his face on their to get people interested in the book! Might I add it is a very good book I had to read it for one of my classes you should check it out too!!! Thanks Illseed and like i previously said I am not trying to be mean I just want you to know that this is definitely not a diss to Jay-Z since the book is an autobiography of one of our people that were enslaved back in the day!!!
SHOW ME YOUR GENITALS
This was going to be the fail of the day and then I saw it had 9 million views. This is a better one...lol...I love this.
JAY-Z'S MOTHER, WE LOVE YOU!!!
