Oh NO! You know, I know the heavy-weight division is really waning right now, but that is no reason to start hearing rumors of a Mike Tyson / Evander Holyfield rematch. As far as I can see, there is no reason to do this. My name aint Tyson or Evander though. So, here is the deal. Evander is 45 and Tyson is 41. Both need money. I heard Evander was over in the UK and was pushing a recently published autobiography. Somewhere in there he said that he was going to fight Iron Mike again in a possible PPV event. Sadly, even though this seems outrageous, it would beat the crappy PPV that Wladimir Klitschko and Sultan Ibragimov recently gave. That was a waste of my money. Hopefully, if this happens, nobody gets hurt.
RAZ-Bs BROTHER RAISES UP WITH FLOYD MAYWEATHER?
Ricky Romance is supposedly the head of Floyd Mayweathers new label called Mayweather Music. Well, this rumor has circulated for quite some time, but I didnt think it would actually happen. They are saying that Ricky is heading up the label, even though like a month ago there was a ferocious rumor that Money Mayweathers security beat the crap up out of him. Then, I got his message from Raz-B:
On behalf of the misfortunate event that occurred on the night of February 9, 2008 during the Floyd Mayweather weekend in Grand Rapids, MI; I, Raz B would like to formally apologize on behalf of my brother's actions that night within the vicinity of Floyd and his guest.
Floyd Mayweather and his camp/family/foundation have been loyal to myself for 5 years and I can not express enough of how truly sorry I am about the misconduct that occurred that night within the hotel.
The weekend was fun filled and enjoyable, but due to some mishaps, misunderstandings and being under the influence of alcohol; my brother stepped out of line in more ways than one and Floyd's security had to step in and rectify the situation the way it needed to be handle. In no way was Floyd's security in the wrong for handling the situation because that's what they were there for and they did their job like they were supposed to.
I look forward to working with Floyd and his camp in the very near future and I appreciate all the support thus far he has shown on my behalf.

The website Hits Daily Double pulled no punches in a recent report:
Executives within WMG now believe the board has finally figured out that Cohen has neither the talent nor the intelligence to lead the company, and that the man behind the curtain at Def Jam was obviously Russell Simmons.
Jay-Z on the person he wants for president:
Bring your friends and families make sure your voices are heard for change. Its time for change. Its time for Barack Obama.
I told ya yesterday that DTP wasnt going anywhere. Hear LA Reid say it:
The Atlanta hip-hop scene and the Dirty South movement in general owe more than they can ever repay to Chris. Now changing business conditions necessitate that we review our respective rosters and focus to ensure that future opportunities and challenges are aggressively achieved. Ludacris has built Disturbing Tha Peace into one of the iconic names in hip-hop, one that will remain an important part of the Island Def Jam family. [Illseed note: that does read like some of the fat is going to get trimmed. What your back Shareefa! Or Ill watch it for you.]
Rihanna on her relationship status [Page Six]:
Im single. If a good guy comes along well make it work, but for now Im having fun being a single woman.
Rhianna on Jay-Z and her being cut buddies:

Rihanna on her favorite body part:
She said: "I absolutely love my bum, and I keep working at it because I want it to be perfect. It makes my clothes look good, and guys like it!"
THE COPS IN KILLA CALI:
If you read the last rumors entry, you know there was an incident of alleged police brutality in Cali after a dead prez concert. Here are remarks from people that saw it or were nearby:
"I want to comment on the Kaisor Sosa article. I saw it all go down. I was walking to show when I saw this cop just hating on dude. A bunch of girls said that the dude had just performed. Dude didn't do anything. All of a sudden [the cops] tackled his ass, it was f***ed up. People should so something."
One of the DJs that night:
I didnt see what happened to dude but I know that sunset blvd. was pretty much shut down for a while with about 20 cop cars, sheriffs standing in the street and what not. I can vouch for cops being there in full force and being absolute assholes as usual.
One of the bouncers that night:
Im actually one of the bouncers at the Key Club and Kaisor Sosa is actually a cool ass dude he real down to earth. Its obvious it was more security than usual for Dead Prez than the usual headliner. I heard about it but I didnt see him get his ass beat by the police but I dont doubt it 4 a second. People be drunk and belligerent and they get smashed by me or the Sheriff Department but [Kaisor Sosa] actually a standup dude.
LIP CHAP ANYBODY?
I know Chapstick and/or MAC is going to put the firing squad out on this chick, because she is hurting the lip gloss industry as a whole! Flavor of Love must be stopped.
D-TAY AIRS OUT YOUNG BUCK PART 2!
What are your thoughts and notions about this one?
SIGNS THE WORLD IS COMING TO AN END!
These signs get more and more depressing as we go along. A damn fool went on a shooting spree in a West Palm Beach Wendy's fast food restaurant. The damn fool shot and killed a fire-rescue lieutenant who was waiting in line for a Wendys toy for his kid. Whats equally nuts is that the shooter was a 60-year-old man named Alburn Edward Blake. Blake ended up turning the gun on himself. What a coward. Nobody knows why the man shot and killed four other people, but he was shaking like a leaf before the act.
FAT JOE LASHES BACK AT PAPOOSE RUMORS!
YEP! Fat Joe lashes back at those that think he got knuckled down by a dude 1/3 his size. Damn, son he did a rap video for it! Joes still got it. Watch it.
RUSSELL ENDORSES OBAMA?!
You probably already heard this, but I was a bit baffled all things considered. Here we go straight from Russell Simmons:
Today I am announcing my personal endorsement of Senator Barack Obama for President of the United States. During the last nine months, I have closely observed the presidential campaigns, analyzed the issues and platforms of the major candidates, and have had substantive discussions with Senator Clinton and Senator Obama. From the sidelines of the primaries and debates, I have been particularly inspired by the fact that Senator Obama has built an unprecedented, national movement comprised of people from all ethnic, racial, political, social and economic backgrounds.
In particular, the response to Obama by young voters across America continues to be monumental. Obama's leadership, passion and demand for a change resonates effectively with the aspirations of millions of people who want a better quality of life. This is truly a transcendent and historic moment in American politics and I am obligated not to remain on the sidelines.
Although I have great respect for the accomplishments of Senator Clinton and I have personally worked with Senator Clinton successfully on issues concerning education, prison reform and poverty, I am now compelled by my own personal conscience to publicly state, "I support and endorse Barack Obama for President."
As the Chairman of the non-partisan, nonprofit The Foundation for Ethnic Understanding, it is my personal opinion that Senator Obama's campaign for President has and will continue to transcend race in America and have a profound positive impact on the very issues I have been fighting for my whole life. Many of you know my work as Chairman of the non-partisan, nonprofit Hip-Hop Summit Action Network. Hip-Hop as a cultural phenomenon is also about transformation and taking action to end poverty, war and ignorance. While I am endorsing Senator Obama as a private citizen, I do believe there is a reason why so many artists and young people in the hip-hop generation are overwhelmingly supporting his campaign.
Q-TIP RIPS IT! INTERVIEW & PERFORMANCE!

If you never heard of the Troubleneck Brothers. For a quick second (it was a very QUICK second), they were neck-in-neck with The Wu-Tang Clan. Some of you know about Hip-Hop, so I apologize for assuming. HEY, all 90s cats rise up! (Shout out to Samuels Troubleneck official!)
