Hip-Hop Rumors: Kanye Makes Diddy Love Hip-Hop Again


Please be CLEAR – I am dead set against the N-Word! PERIOD! But, Nas has a new song called “N****r” and he really does open the floor for discussion. Certainly, the discussion could be had regardless, but this song his crazy fresh. If you don’t like to think, don’t bother. If you like music that gives you something to mull on when its quiet time, listen up.

Here are some lyrics.

“People [are] afraid of criticism/ But I always put myself in this sacrificial position/ …Anytime we mention our condition, our history or existence, they calling it reverse racism.”

"In the land of the blind, the man with one eye is the king,” Nas raps as he leads into the chorus, “They say we N-I-double G-E-R / We are, much more / but still we choose to ignore the obvious/ Man, this history don’t acknowledge us /we were scholars way before colleges.”

Nas on changing the title of the N-Word album:


important to me that this album gets to the fans. It's been a long time coming. I want my fans to know that creatively and lyrically, they can expect the same content and the same messages. I just didn't want an album title to be the sticking point that holds up this record or blocks it in any way. It's that important. The streets have been waiting for this for a long time. The people will always know what the

real title of this album is and what to call it."

What do you think?


“The man” is working overtime! They went and took The Game’s Bentley because of expired tags. The po po took it from him and now he has to go to the DMV and stand in mile-long lines just to get his car back! Right now, his car is in an impound and he’s got late fees, fines and proof of insurance to produce. At that point, he will get his expensive whip back, according to tmz. Oh, hate can’t stop the money from coming in July, baby!


Mariah Carey is rumored to be working on her master production that will surpass everything! This production will co-star Nick Cannon and cost about $4 or $5 million. The rumored wedding ceremony will take place in New York City. “It’s going to be held in New York City in the next six weeks. We are looking at 2,000 guess and 14 bridesmaids. I guess Nick Cannon will have to match that level of “grandiousness.” This seems to feed into rumors that she is pregnant, but I don’t believe it.


I am hearing Wendy Williams needs to be very careful of the people who are in her circle. Apparently, when images from the sex tape that her now-husband Kevin was in was sent to various media outlets and blogs by WENDY’S email account. That’s right, from her own account. It looks like somebody is looking to severely damage Wendy Williams these days. I know she withstood the Puffy banning, but this is getting crazy! I am hearing that the actual thing is in circulation on the net.


What did Queen Pen do to deserve all this? Nothing! There’s a fact: her boyfriend beat her up something awful and messed up her Grammy Awards. Well, he did all this beating right in front of her own kids and has Queen Pen fearing for her life. The attack happened earlier this month and police are still looking for Kendall Wicker! She’s gave birth to two of his kids. He beat her once before and it required her to have oral surgery. Sad. I don’t think this has anything to do with anything, but Queen Pen once bragged about stealing chicks from men. Oh, nevermind. Anyway, I hope that they get the bastard for threatening to kill Q.P.

Read the full story on Queen Pen’s domestic dispute, right here.


Jacob the Jeweler is making a 40-Carat diamond ring for the lucky lady in his life. The only thing is, we aren’t sure who he is getting it made for. They are saying it is for Cassie, but I personally hope it is for Kim. Anyway, the ring have a 25-Carat center diamond and 15 carats worth of baguettes. Diddy is preparing for his 10th Annual White Party in the Hamptons this summer. See you there, bud!


Is Justin Timberlake following Usher again? According to reports, ‘Lake is all read to propose to girlfriend Jessica Biel. They have been dating for over a year and he’s about ready to call it a day at the age of 27, The Sun reports. Timberlake is expected to wed on the West Indian island of Mustique. Paparazzi cannot get in there, because the entire island is privately known. .Dude wants kids and a wife. You can’t be mad at that, can you? If you are Usher, you can. Usher has claimed that Justin has been a biter of his style for some time now. Anyway, good look to Justin, but he better go easy on the bras.


I don’t know how true this is, but I heard this person in this picture is one of Suge Knight’s kids. Apparently, he is very well taken off. The person that sent it wanted it to be know, because Suge gets such a bad rap, but he’s actually a good father. At least this kid is happy and he has a lot of friends named Ben.


Lil’ Wayne supposedly going to start in a straight-to-DVD movie, The Fast and Furious 4. I guess Bow Wow totally killed the franchise? I don’t know though, because they say this new installment will include Vin Diesel and Paul Walker, who are still major draws. Even jailbird and consummate bad a**Michelle Rodriguez is supposed to be in this one. No word on what sort of criminal Wayne will be playing.

Wayne Boycott?

Rumor has it, 102 Jamz in NC is on a Lil Wayne and Baby strike for some reason or another. I’m not sure why they’d do such a thing, but maybe it will unfurl later.


Ursh Can Win! Even thought buzz is a bit low, I am hearing that Usher’s new CD is really good. I think he’ll be fine.

A Classy Act: I am not dissing! I heard that a famous Argentineans photographer recently did a classy semi-nude photo shoot of Kelis inAmsterdam. I heard they were shot in the city and were meant to be a gift for Nas.

Girl Beef: I heard that Nicki Minaj and Lil’ Mama might have some beef. I hope not.

Brooke Valentine’s Day: I am hearing that “Crunk-N-B” singer is in talks to sign to G-Unit.

Brit Sex Tape: Supposedly, there is a Britney Spear and K-Fed Sex Tape.

Babity Kane:There is a rumor going around that Audrina from Danity Kane is pregnant. Honestly, her name could be Bawrdy and I could say she was from Danity Kane. I don't know these folks!

Veggie Heat: Peta is naming the hottest veggie men and, in Hip-Hop, we have nominees in Masta Killa, Damon Dash, Jeru Da Damaja, KRS-ONE, Black Thought, GZA, Tajai (Hieroglyphics) and a bunch of others.

Kimbo Slice = Mr. T 2008: Somebody hit me and suggested that Kimbo Slice be considered for the role of BA Baracus for the A-Team remake. Lets start the petition!

Correction: The 50 Cent movie is apparently called “Microwave Park.”

I’m Hearing T.I. Is BACK: T.I.'s first concert appearance since his arrest will be June 14 at the Hot 107.9 annual birthday bash. Guess who is also on the same bill? You guessed it – SHAWTY LO.

Good Lord: Dwyane Wade gave his mother a new church. She was a former drug user/seller, but cleaned up. This was his gift to her: Temple of Praise. Incredible.


Usher On Him & Jay-Z Maturing In The Music Game:

“With the talk of both of us now being newlyweds, there is a question as to why, and is it real. Well, if you hear the song we did together, you’ll understand what he meant when he says seeds becomes plants, boys become men, you’ve got to grow up not down. In some point in life you’ve got to grow up– grow away from certain immaturities.”

Diddy going for the “Brotha Please” of the decade:

"Sean John is fashion Viagra. I’ve had 40 year-old men tell me that once they started wearing Sean Jean, everything changed for them, [including] their sex life."

Jay-Z on repping the Nets at the NBA Draft Lottery today:

"This is very exciting and I hope my nickname 'Lucky Lefty' holds up.” (Khalif from Milwaukee – what’s good!)

Play with Barack if you want. He will bust dat a** if you mess with his family:

“If they think that they’re going to try to make Michelle an issue in this campaign, they should be careful, because that I find unacceptable — the notion that you start attacking my wife or my family.” (I double dog dare ya!)

Illseed in Newsweek? Yes, I am. Here is my quote in the story “Outing Hip-Hop.”

"There are people in the tabloid media dying to confirm something of this sort. But at the very end of the day, it's not what you know, its what you can prove—or, these days, what you can print." (Here is the story and part 2 is where I am)


The Brits are pursuing what seems like a page of H. G. Wells’ fictitious book The Island of Doctor Moreau (from 1896). Gordon Brown, the Prime Minister of Britain, has decided that is it perfectly OK for scientist start using animal-human hybrid embryos! What they want to do – in the name of saving lives – is take the nuclei of human cells into animal eggs and allow them to grow. That creates a hybrid embryos. The embyos are supposedly harvested only until they can grow valuable human skin and heart tissue. I don’t know if anybody read or saw the Moreau movies, but this is not a joke. The Prime Minister said that they would not violate common morality. I don’t know about this, but people ALWAYS doing something for the good of humankind…like microchips. A slippery slope, I tell ya…

A Boston doctor offers SEX CHANGE treatments for kids as young as 7 – Read Signs The World Is Coming To An End Part II!WHOA!


My homey Freezy hit me with this dance months ago, but I forgot about it (my bad Freezy!). Anyway, this new dance called “The Dougie” is sweeping the net by storm. Its named after one of the greats, Dougie Fresh. Cut that check!


Check here to see the real Dougie Fresh in action! I’m so ‘88 with it.

(To Peta, Dougie Fresh is also a long running vegetarian!)


Talib Kweli and Res = a new group called Idle Warship. I thought they were more of a pop collaboration, but now I see they have some of those good, old political sentiments as well. Check out this video for “Fall Back.”


This is so wrong! Karma might come knocking for me over posting this.


This is a shame to see fellow people of color fighting each other. Sad.



I ain't mad at Usher.

Dude is a man.

Some ladies you all know!


They keep us talking, but if we stop talking about them then they should worry!
