Hip-Hop Rumors: Pharrell & Rihanna Couple Up? Frankie Cheating? Mike Jones Retires?
content within this section is pure rumor and generally have no factual
info outside of what the streets have whispered in our ear. Read on.
RIHANNA AND PHARRELL A COUPLE?
Rihanna and Pharrell? WOW.
There are rumors flourishing (you like that word) that Pharrell and RiRi are working on making beautiful music together. I dont mean a new song either. Dude was/is in London over the weekend (Click here to see what he was doing with BAPE) and the paps over their claim they are spending an interesting time together. What could that all mean? It could me nothing. But the UK Mirror said the following. Its no secret that Rihanna and Pharrell have chemistry and not just in the studio they seem mesmerized by each other. But Chris will be gutted to learn he could have lost Rihanna to one of the sexiest men in music. Rihanna and Pharrell talk on the phone all the time and whenever she can get a break in her schedule shell go and support him at a gig. Pharrell is in his 30s and RiRi is early 20s. Age is a number, I guess.
ILLSEEDS AFTERNOON QUICKIES
Well, they are saying that Paula Abdul may not be back for American Idol. Did you know that Hot 97s Angie Martinez was originally up for that gig, but didnt want to diss people?
On Twitter, Chris Browns former security has revealed what we all knew Chris and Rihanna fought all the time. Remember my rumors from Chris VA home? They said she tossed some giant object through his flat screen TV.
Here is the rumor that I will probably elaborate on tomorrow. Did you know that Prince and Michael Jackson had a serious beef back in the day? I heard Prince used to terrorize MJ.
THE DAILY TWO CENTS
What wasnt correct is now corrected. More things to be announced soon. Illseed is back.
GUCCI MANE BACK IN JAIL?
Soulja Boy told it all:
Just woke up to some bullshit... my nigga Gucci back in jail Free Gucci.
Later, this is what Soulja boy said.
Gucci Mane is not in jail
Well, which is it? These stars acting as defacto media outlets is going to be a problem. They are going to be starting more rumors than I have in my career. I heard that Gucci is fine.
Nicki Minaj, my new boo, said that he IS in jail and shes cool with Gucci.
Yes, unfortunately it is true. Let's just all prey for Gucci and hold him down while he's gone.
And then later she said:
false info bout gucci bra aint locked up.
THE VERDICT Gucci Mane isnt locked up, but he may be soon.
According to my folks on twitter and other sources, Gucci Mane failed a urine test and he has officially violated his probation. Now, his lawyers are reportedly and feverishly fighting to keep him out of jail. Stay tuned.
IS FRANKIE LONS CHEATING ON HER FIANCÉE?
Peep what I got from a reader. All I have to say is I have the hots for Frankie. Here is the letter:
I was at the Car & Bike Show for V-103 in ATL this past weekend. I saw keyshia cole's mom Frankie with Fatigue getting real close and i think they were kissing too couldn't really tell from where i was from, all i know is that the looked real lovey-dovey. This picture was after the fact. But Frankie's fiance was there i think they are on the DL or something. I didn't know who Fatigue was but they said he won BET freestyle friday competition and I searched it on BET and I found him.
Fatigue isnt even her fiancées name! I see Frankie, getting her alleged swerve on with these young dudes.
Get a real man!
THE GAME TO DO D.O.H.?
The Game is playing a game of seek and destroy with Jay-Z. This is the first look that The Game is looking to take this to the next level. I am hearing he is going to do D.O.H.
JAY-Z REMIXES D.O.A.?
On the flip side of life, I heard that Jay-Z is in the process of constructing a remix of his street single, D.O.A. I find it interesting that he is going to take it to the next level with all of the backlash. I have nothing else on this other than this remix is supposedly coming soon.
Here is a video remix of the song. Thoughts?
JAY-Z POSSES UP FOR BP3
It looks like some good news is on tap for Jay-Z. No, its not that he is going to battle The Game! It is that the feature appearances for Blueprint 3 have been released. They are MGMT, Drake, Mr. Hudson, Rihanna and Kid Cudi. There will be producers like Kanye West, No I.D. and Timbaland. What these all mean? Means the Roc is way different.
MIKE JONES RETIRING?
I am getting some serious intel surrounding Mike Jones. As you make or may not know, Mike Jones released a new album this year, but I dont think it sold too well. I mean, the buzz just wasnt there for whatever reason. So, now I am hearing the Mike is considering a straight up retirement from music. From what I heard, he just doesnt know if he is going to be doing another album. I know that he didnt have any artists signed to his label so he may not have any inroads from the CEO lane. Ill sign to Ice Age! Holla!
OUTKAST IS COMING BACK!
During my break, I didnt get a lot of new rumors, but I want you to know that my intel is telling me that OutKast is actually in the studio and working on a new KAST album. So, this is a great day in rumors. Definitely need that fresh blast of air that only OutKast can offer.
Shout out to Big Boi, who recently signed to Def Jam. Maybe he can jump on tour with Red, Meth and Ghostface.
Dallas is on the come up. Now that we have established that, I am hearing the Dallas is taking exception to the new song from J-Kwon. The song is called Louie Bounce (I Smacked Nikki) and it has a different sound that we are used to hearing from J-Kwon. Nevertheless, people I know in Dallas are crying foul. They are saying hes jacked the Dallas Swag, Dallas Boogie, Texas Jig movement and put a St. Louis stamp on it. On top of that, like that rapper Dorrough, they are also calling out Hurricane Chris for branding Halle Berry as only his. The song came from a Dallas rapper named Superstar. Somebody told me to expect s**t to hit the fan soon.
RIHANNAS NEW DEW .
She may be on the verge of a breakdown or something. I dont think Ive seen her smile since her first album.
ON 50 CENTs PAYROLL?
This dude has been going at Rick Ross on the parody side so hard that there are now rumors that he is on the G-Unit rappers pay roll. Check out his latest:
NO SLAUGHTERHOUSE VS WU AT ROCK THE BELLS, BUT THERE WAS A FIGHT...
First of all, I am going to preface this with AllHipHop has reached out to a representative for Slaughterhouse and he said that this rumor I am about to tell you is false. We reached out for comment and they said they are all good with Wu and to prove it, here is Joe Buddens apology to Method Man.
Now for the rumor:
I heard the Joe Budden and Meth were having a real moment of conversation, but a photographer decided to bust in and started to take pictures of them. Well, somebody near didnt like it and that photographer got the business as in some fists hitting him. Now, this is not saying that Budden or Meth were involved in any violence. But, eyewitnesses say that there was confusion over the altercation with the photog and Wu and SH got into it. My other source said there was no fighting between Wu and SH though, but that photog got it very bad by some random crew. They supposedly asked him nicely three times to get out of there while peace was being levied and he didn't comply.
Royce Da 5 9 reiterated the facts that there is no beef. I want to keep it 100 here, because I do not start beefs!
There were some pretty strong rumors that Katt Williams had filed for bankruptcy, but those rumors have been proven false. Looks like some former workers for Katt put out some bad info on dude.
Hurricane Chris and Dorrough may clash both are booked for TwanBigFace Entertainments Rick Ross After Party in Pontiacs Club Sevin on July 24, 2009. Thoughts?
This is pretty funny. There are outlandish accusations that Joe Jacksons beatings of Michael Jackson rendered him impotent. They are saying JJ kicked MJ in the sac.
Even though I heard JD and Janet had broken up some time ago, word is it just happened. Janet is reportedly devastated.
The rumored Destinys Child reunion is just that RUMORS. Michelle said it and now Kelly has said it too.
ILLSEEDS WACK ISH OF THE DAY
Well, here is a new segment called Wack Ish of the Day and it will typically highlight something wack about Hip-Hop. Generally, I would ignore these things or sweep them under the rug, but no more. This is the latest. I Eats Da P***y is the name of the song and when this person performs it, he has lil boys and girls on stage to hear this. What the heck is this? TRASH.
LIL KIM IS STILL A STAR PERFORMS AT MANDELA DEDICATION
Lil Kim the singer?
Kim looks pretty darn good, but I think Cyndi Lauper got her on the rap part haha!
GUCCI MANE IS FREE!
DID FOXY B GET BOOED IN CT?
The homies sent this video of Foxy Brown and said that her show was under par and that she got booed. I wonder this is all the vid I have right now, but you can hear some grumblings.
JAY-Z COMMENTS ON YOUNGER RAPPERS
Jay-Z talked to Reuters and here is what he said about people asking him to retire to let younger rappers get in.
"I hear it all the time -- 'Yo, he should let the young guys, the new generation of guys come in.' But you don't become the front-runner in music because someone lets you. You have to claim your shoes. If you grow up listening to hip-hop, you love hip-hop and that's the end of it. But if you're a 30-year-old rapper still trying to make music like you're 15, then you're making it narrow. At my age, I can't relate to a 15-year-old. I deal with mature and relevant topics for my age group -- it has to all be based on true emotions. The more diversity and the more mature we make hip-hop, the bigger the net you cast."
What do you think of THAT?
BEANS IS BACK!
The Game is pretty lucky that Beans isnt in this beef. Beans is a game changer. LOL! Anyway, Beans has a new CD coming out this September or December. No label has been announced.
I'M BACK LIKE BEANS...Thanks to the supporters and those that understood. Give me a few to be 100%...
RUMORS, WE LOVE YOU!!!
