CTE RAPPER IN ACCIDENT?
CTE Rapper Boo Da Boss Player aka Boo was in a horrible car accident that broke two bones in his back and one of his arms, I am being told. I heard that he was driving from his home town of Canton, MS to Atlanta and got in a very bad car accident. Get better!
FIELD MOB REUNION?!
Fans of Hip-Hop! I have an announcement to make! Field Mob has decided to put aside their differences and reunite, from my sources. They have reportedly recorded a number of songs together and will probably start putting them out soon. If you look hard on the net, you can find their new stuff, I am told. I havent yet found it, but I am going to start looking as soon as you see todays rumors. Also Kenjo is the man behind the beats, as he usually is when Field Mob decides to get it together. I wonder DTP?
WAS SHAKIR STEWARTS DEATH SHADY?
I will be the first to admit, I didnt want to break this rumor even though I had been hearing it from the jump. Recent industry chatter reinforced what I had been hearing. Now, the leaks are all over the place. People are suggesting that it may be possible that Shakir was somehow affiliated with an ATL street gang and that lead to his untimely demise. Now, there is no evidence supporting that at all. In fact, no foul play has been inferred either only suicide. But, the streets are talking. It has been stated that he had been forced to borrow a lot of money from people that might want to collect in creative ways, if you catch my drift. Also, they said that he wasnt very happy and worked endlessly. The one thing that continues to stick out is that Shakir;s behavior had changed radically in the weeks leading up to his death. We have about 12 weeks to wait for autopsy reports.
MY BOY GOT LET GO?! WENDY WILLIAMS WHOA!
Wendy Williams and Charlamagne Tha God they are like my rumor family. They get it gully. Now, as told by Lady Drama, radio station WBLS has fired C tha G! Wendy released a statement on the air and they are saying that the financial crisis has forced them to cut staff. Its real in the field everybody. TRUST. C has been down with Wendy for a few years now. "They say unemployment has surges higher now than it has in the last 25 years, shoppers have turned frugal, the economy is sinking. The credit problem, financial stresses and everybody is suffering, me, you and everybody. I just want to be honest with you all as honest as I possibly can be....This is not the end of the changes that are happening here." That last statement is highly suggestive that Wendy may be off the air completely, as Drama stated. I heard that the whole Wendy team was let go. Damn. Charlamagne is a cool cat, who never ceases to amaze with his candid talk.
XM / SIRIUS MERGER = JOBS LOST
I have some information for you all. You know Sirius and XM satellite radio stations are merging. Well, here is the deal. Several Hip-Hop and R&B shows will be lost. These station channels are about to become a part of the Shade45 family. Some of the other XM stuff will be converted into Hip-Hop Nation. The whole mess will get some people gone and other working with strangers.

THE FULL LUPE INTERVIEW WITH TIGGER
OK, there is no more speculation. Check it out right here.
LOL OPRAH USES PORT-A-POTTY
How funny is this? Oprah Winfrey the QUEEN had to use a port-a-potty at the celebration for Barack Obama on Tues. She had never used a portable toilet before that and decided to just use the damn thing, rather than miss Baracks ceremony. Oprah hopes that Barack will stay in touch.
I just hope Michelle is cool:
Also, the word on the street is that Oprah is giving refuge to Jennifer Hudson in her time of mourning. O is letting the actress stay at her luxury Chicago condo. I know she would be singing at the inaugural. Hopefully she can transition by that time.
KATT WILLIAMS ARRESTED!!!!
Katt Willams was supposed to be doing a show at Carnagie Hall, but I dont think thats going to happen. I got word last night from a very reliable source that Katt was arrested last night on felony gun charges. Not only the comedian. About five other people from his camp where also arrested including his security, from what I am getting. Believe it or not, I am hearing that, Katt was at Jim Jones' studio when it all took place, and they called the dog out on him literally. I dont know if he is going to get out in time for his highly anticipated show. From what I hear, they called Bomb Squad, extra units, narcotics and whatever on the man. I dont know what he did to constitute all that. There was a swarm of armed uniformed officers, sources say. I wonder what Jim did?
JIM JONES HAS ANOTHER HIT!
I know its been a minute since We Fly, but Jim Jones has got another hit it would seem. Check out Jim Jones Pop Champagne with Ron Browz and Juelz Santana. I am not in error, this started out as Rons song. Hes so generous, but I am sure he saw the longterm benefits of the collaboration.
Keri Hilson has been pushed back to the year 2009. Beyonce is always messing people up when they want to come out.
Mak from the IC still around? Tell him I'm still listening to his American Gangster remixes! Whew!
Speaking of, Beyonce has offered her services at the 2009 inaugural celebration. Yeah, me too.
Danity Kane will not do another season of Making The Band with Diddy. They are made, unmade and probably will make up.
Kelly Rowland has reportedly moved all the way to the UK for good. I think she needs to come back home.
For all you people mad that Barack got elected, Palin didnt know that Africa was a continent. S-M-H. Also, the GOP went and got those $150k in clothing from Palin. LMAO.
Tweet from Next is NOT a rapper and has no beefs to mention. Stay tuned - or not.
Girls Next Door star Kendra Wilkinson is engaged to Hank Baskett, a player with the Philly Eagles. I cant give him a pass though. Dude is got sloppy thirds and fourths! Its crazy! More below with Shelz!
Joe The Fake Plumber smartens up:
"Hey, the American people spoke. They elected Barack Obama as our president and our new Commander in Chief, and Im behind that 100 percent.
David Letterman went in on Bush and McCain. Of Bush as it relates to Obama, the late night talker said:
"I think I speak for most Americans when I say, anybody mind if [Obama] starts a little early? Would that be a problem?"
Of McCain, he said:
"I would like to say one thing to John McCain. Listen, Senator: you don't show up for me, America doesn't show up for you."
Ouch! Remember, McCain lied to Letterman. Said he couldnt do the show, but got caught doing an interview with another show.
KANYE WESTS NEW VIDEO HEARTLESS
REH DOG IS AN IDIOT.
Why are we talking about Reh Dog? This dude is the wackest wack job EVER.
Obama is not my president. Im shocked by the amount of ignorant Americans out there. Its the end of the United States of America as we know it. I wish I could go into hibernation for 4 years. To say I dislike this Marxist would not be too strong. To say Im ashamed to be black would not be too strong. In 4 years I will be saying you made your beds Americans now die in it. Israel will now have no other choice but to start a war with Iran because Obama will not help them and it has to be done before President Bush leaves office. To call him the anti-Christ would not be too far off base. Im literally sick to my stomach.
So many Americans want to sit back and let the Government take care of them instead of working hard for what they want. No wonder so many Americans have no self esteem, lazy, fat, and out of shape. I bow my head in shame. I shake my fist with disgust. But so it is written and God words are coming to pass. So many people are lost sheeps and cannot think independently. Im a leader and know that this man child is wrong for American capitalist society. If so many of you love socialism why dont you get the hell out and live in Europe? Rev. Wright is indeed correct in saying Americans chickens are coming home to roost. Because in 4 years we will pay for electing Obama as your president not mines.
Now we know why hes crying. Please let me remind you this is the man doing the talking here:
EPIC FAIL OF THE DAY
Good lord this is a fail on any day, any society in any century.
I threw up..but I had to see another one.
One more for you super big butt lovers!
SIGNS THE WORLD IS COMING TO AN END

SHELZ TELLS THE TRUTH:
Soulja Boy Says He Didn't Mean It
We all knew he would have to address it sooner or later; and he did. The below quote was respectfully jacked from Streetcred.
"Man basically what happened that day, I was at BET filming the last episode of Rap City and then the Touré dude asked me if I wanted to do an interview with him and I said no. I had seen the interview with Bow Wow and Omarion and he was like roasting them or whatever and it turned out to be bad. I was like, I'm straight, I don't want to do an interview with you. Then, my management was like if he's good we can do an interview with him...for promotion or whatever...I was just joking. Most of the questions he was asking me wasn't making no sense. Like, he was asking me how I wanted to die and asking me all these questions so I thought he was joking with me. I didn't really take it seriously. Basically it was sarcasm that got blown out of proportion."
Hindsight is well, y'all know what it is. I'm curious though. Am I the only one who has a hard time believing SB's wit and sarcasm is so crafty it snuck past Toure?
Saksgate? Africagate? North Americagate? Half-nakedgate? Damn Sarah.
It's being reported that the GOP is sending a lawyer to Alaska to catalogue and retrieve the $150,000 worth of clothing Palin bought during her short contribution to the McCain ticket. The Republican Party has suggested that much of the clothing was purchased on the personal credit cards of campaign staffers. Oh and someone else from the GOP said Palin didn't realize Africa was a continent. She thought it was a country with two separate sides; Africa and South Africa. The GOP even suggested Mrs. Palin couldn't name the countries that comprised North America. Then there was talk about her greeting the staffers one morning in her hotel room wearing nothing but a towel. I'm thinking the Repubs are going to donate Palin to the Scapegoat Hall of Shame. Maybe that was her purpose from jump.
Hank Baskett and Kendra Wilkenson Engaged? DeAngelo Hall Unemployed?
He's a Philadelphia Eagle. She's one of Hugh Hefner's cast aways from The Girls Next Door. And they are getting married. Ummm ok. Congrats. Oh and the Raiders waived DeAngelo Hall. Maybe the Falcons will take him back.
There will be a public memorial for Shakir Stewart on today at Kings Chapel on the campus of Morehouse College. For anyone in Atlanta who would like to attend, the service starts at 3pm. However, the school is requesting you try to get there an hour early. The family has also requested donations to the Stewart children in lieu of flowers via The Shakir Stewart Memorial Fund.
Well folks . Fridays seem to creep around, but the weekend is gone in a blink. There is much to grieve, but more to celebrate. Find the balance and I'll catch ya next week.
THE OBAMA MOMENT
Hip-Hop doesnt mean we all agree. Some of my readers are LIVID that Obama is the president. I remember feeling that way a few years ago when Bush stole the election. Four years later we have redemption in the form of progression! So, I wanted you to know that Obama has already made plans to meeting with leaders of business, government and academia. This meeting will include Delawares own Vice President-elect Joe Biden, former Cabinet officials, executives from Xerox Corp., Time Warner Inc., Google Inc. and the Hyatt hotel company. Investor Warren Buffett (yeah, that super richest dude guy) will also help solve Americas woes. All you haters, look at McCains economic strategy and hollerate. We dont have to agree, but we have to do better.
On that note...PEACE!
OBAMA, WE LOVE YOU!!!
