THE DAILY TWO SENSE
I am going to start this Illseed Rap Talent Search! The rules are simple! Send me a page that I can listen to you music. If you send me an Mp3, I will delete it into oblivion! I am looking for Myspace pages, or band sites with some form of streaming media. Even some youtube accounts. Make it easy to listen. The last rule is this: put Illseed Rap Search : YOU RAP NAME in the subject heading. If you fail to adhere to these rules you shall be eliminated from the contest.
BEEF WITH NICKI MINAJ AND SEAN GARRETT?
It aint looking good for Sean Garrett and Nicki Minaj! The pair somehow collaborated on the song with Massive Attack, but didnt collab on the damn video! Im not sure exactly what happened, but I will try to accurately tell you what I have heard. Sean Garrett is a pretty acclaimed songwriter. Nicki is nothing to sneeze at. Now, Sean wrote this song and Nicki got to it and reportedly changed up the lyrics a bit into the song you hear today. Pop hit, right? Not exactly. I am hearing there is some dispute over the publishing rights and stuff. What has been rumored to be a point of contention is that Sean wanted Nicki at his vid shoot in Miami for the song Get It All. Nicki didnt make it, apparently. Im not sure why she missed it, but I heard Sean wasnt a happy camper! Now, I did some investigating and Seans Twitter shows no animosity or anything, but you never know. He could be seething quietly behind the pen.
NOT A RUMOR Q-TIP IS WORKING WITH KANYE
I think Jay-Z is very ready to work with Q-Tip right now.
Q-Tip says he's working with Nas, Kanye, and trying to collab with Jay-Z!
BB: You seem to be very selective when it comes to picking artists to produce for. So how do you go about choosing projects?
Q-Tip: I just try to work with people who I admire or whom I think has got it. So right now Im working on Nas shit, about to work with Kanye on his shit. Just trying to keep up my momentum. Im about to work with Talib on his project. I been trying to work with Hova for a while so hopefully hell realize the heat I got and come with it [laughs].
BB: Do you have any other solo projects coming up?
Q-Tip: My solo shit is on deck for sometime this year. I cant reveal what the name of it is just yet but Im real excited about it. So for all the people that fucked with the Renaissance and knew what it was, or for those who are just finding out now - we going to come crazy on this one. And the Nas shit is going to be fucking bananas. Look for that at the end of the year.
There were rumors that Q-Tip had a bit of beef over Jay-Z and his purported ego, but apparently thats not true. Right?
INDECENT EXPOSURE WAS THE CASE THEY GAVE ME!
Badu may just catch a charge over that video. Indecent exposure was the case they gave me! may be her new song! But, yes. After they initially expressed outrage over her failure to get a permit, it has escalated. At any rate, she should be good unless SOMEBODY SNITCHES! Damn, groupthinkers! Anyway, from what one of my readers told me, she is really in hot water because THE MAN is pissed at her artistic interpretation of JFKs murder in her native Dallas.
THE FINAL WORD ON MIKE JONES!!!
As far as Mike Jones is concerned, from what I understand, dude is just living a different life. Hes healthier and has lost a lot of weight in the pursuit of that. Here is an old interview we did with dude and hes just no sippin and tippin anymore. LOL!

Apparently, Dr. Dre has sent some obscure message saying that it is almost time and "some big news is coming" for Detox. Well see, but this is on the Aftermath site.

Looks like a bunch of rappers had to change their numbers, because Kat Stacks, slore supreme, gave them all out.

Howard Stern has threatened to expose Jamie Foxx as a homosexual. Uhmm Jamie fall back. Jamie reportedly called them some names!
Kelis got served with papers to pay for that $5,000 weave. I can give her a weave for that and I can walk away with $4,990 in profit.
There is no protective custody in Rikers from what I understand so I dont know how Wayne is in there. These are the rumors.
