THE DAILY TWO SENSEI felt like this after writing these rumors...seriously...
I want to say that I really appreciate Kid from Kid-N-Play. His best rap days are behind him, but he is a legend! He had a cartoon!
I want to know where is Alfamega? Did he ever respond to the latest from the Smoking Gun?
Did you see AllHipHops review of Jay-Zs CD? What do you think of the album?
I dude that threw the shoe at G.W. Bush has been freed from jail.
Eminem and Rick Ross should battle. Ross wants it and Eminem kinda needs it.
I was talking to one of my esteemed sources and he brought up an interesting point. He announced the furor that we all have had at some point in time over the Detox album. Dr. Dre is older than Jay-Z, so what is the difference. People dissed Jay-Z for being old, but waiting for Dre? Sheeeeeeeeeet ..Hip-Hop confuses me!
KEVIN LILES FIRED?
Can we get a yay or nay on this? I dont know what it is but I am slowly starting to get sources that are saying Kevin Liles was actually fired. I take that back. I was told that K.L. was looking for a raise and a renewal of his contract. From what I understand, that was either denied or they couldnt find a middle ground on the negotiations. Some others that I have talked to have speculated that hes going into politics (old), but more recently suggested that he may be joining Jay-Z at Roc Nation with Live Nation. Tell me something, somebody!
DID DJ AM WANT TO DIE?
DJ AM is just a tragic case. Sad. The latest is that he tried to kill himself with pills. He had eight undigested OxyContin pills in his stomach and a ninth in his mouth, according to People magazine. They are saying he swallowed these pills fast and in succession to kill himself. They are saying that he was very depressed about breaking up with his girlfriend. The found an old Valentines Day card there where their love was proclaimed just earlier this year. Sucks.

The two recorded music together before stack went back to NYC and linked up with Jim Jones.
SIGNS THE WORLD IS COMING TO AN END
A 19-year-old woman attempted to kill a baby. WOW. The 19-year-old Canada woman was not related to the the 14-month-old girl, but that didnt stop her from straight up trying to swipe her from her family. The crazy women stole the kid and ran, only to beat on the kid. A man named Tyler Bilsborrow saw what was happening as he took a smoke. He heard screams and saw a women slamming SOMETHING against the damn sidewalk. It was the kid. The baby survived and Tyler held the kid in his arms until the police and ambulance got there. That crazy 19 year old is in jail.
THE KIDS LOVE ILLSEED
My homey Domingo has a kid and his kid can draw! Guess who he drew?
Illseed! Thanks, Domingo! Appreciate it!
EPIC WIN OF THE DAY!
My boy Boss Up is now the proud father of a baby boy. On September 1st, Dominic Holiday Duke was born!! 7 pounds and 19 inches! Congrats, Boss Up! Its a shame that hes having kids before I do. Fail on me.
EPIC FAIL OF THE DAY
I preface this by saying that I love Roxanne Shante. I think she is a pioneer and shes got classic songs, for sure. And I pray that she has a very good, strong and powerful explanation for this. Until that explanation comes, I have to label her the Epic Fail of the Day.
Apparently, the story of Dr. Roxanne Shante well let me let Wikipedia tell it.
She was rumored to have earned her bachelor's degree from Marymount Manhattan College and was alleged to have gotten her Ph.D in psychology from Cornell University due to a quirk in her recording contract obligating Warner Music to fund her college education with a practice in Queens. However, an investigative article by Slate magazine found no evidence of Shanté's claims: she was never signed to Warner Music, which only distributed her recordings, but was under contract to the independent label Cold Chillin' Records. Records indicate that she attended only three months at Marymount Manhattan College; she never earned any degree; and she is unlicensed by New York state officials to practice psychology or similar disciplines. When questioned about the Slate investigation, Shanté claimed to have attended Cornell under an pseudonym due to problems with "domestic violence," but she was unable to substantiate these claims.
Please let this be some media BS or my feelings are going to be hurt.
CHRIS BROWN THROWS HIMSELF ON THE MERCY OF THE COURT OF PUBLIC OPINION
Was it me or did it seem like Chris Brown was getting aggy with Larry King? King was diggin, but CB wasnt trying to talk about the details of RiRis butt beating.
What was up with his bowtie get up? He should have worn a suit or something.
SOME MORE JAY-Z STUFF
Here, Jay-Z addresses the idea that Kanye bodied him on his own ish.
XXL: Youve been getting a lot of heat about your second single Run This Town, featuring Kanye and Rihanna. Critics and the blog world have said Ye out rapped you.
Jay-Z: I think that thing has gone a little too far. I think its more about that than the song now. What Im saying is thats just life. If [whose verse was better] was the thing, and we based [song quality] on that, after Ive done 400 songs, Im sure once the average of who was better on the song weighs out, Im pretty high. Some nights [L.A. Lakers player] Pau Gasol can score more points than Kobe Bryantnot saying that Kanye is Pau Gasol, cause you have to be really clear with that[but] as long as Ive been in the game, thats going to happen, once or twice or even three times.
And also the interview between Jay-Z and his shawty Oprah:
Jay-Z: It was natural
Oprah: Because drug dealers were your role models. There wasnt a teacher or lawyer or nurse of doctor or and accountant in the neighborhood?
Jay-Z: Well, we were living in Marcy by then, so no. And if anyone did become something like that, they moved out. They never came back to share the wisdom of how they made it. If anyone made it, you never knew it. Thats why Ive always said that if I become successful, Id come back here, grab somebody, and show him how it can be done.
On being shot at:
Oprah: Werent you shot at three timeswithin six feetand you lived to talk about it?
Jay-Z: That was divine intervention. Divine intervention, and nobody knew how to shoot.
Oprah: What happened in each situation?
Jay-Z: It was one situation, three shots.
Oprah: So he had a bad shot?
Jay-Z: Well, no one really practices shooting a TEC-9 machine gun, right? And when youre a kid with little bony armsno wonder nobody could aim.
Using the N-Word:
Oprah: Do you believe that using the N word is necessary?
Jay-Z: Nothing is necessary. Its just become part of the way we communicate. My generation hasnt had the same experience with that word that generations of people before us had. We werent so close to the pain. So in our way, we disarmed the word. We took the fire pin out of the grenade.
MC SHAN DISSES JOE BUDDEN
Shan had some points though...but he even challenged Joe to a fight. What happened!?!?! LOL!!
