YESTERDAY'S RUMORS (ARCHIVES)Hip-Hop Rumors: Kanye Supports Soulja Boy!

Hip-Hop Rumors: Suge Knight Sighting In L.A.! Soulja Boy Disses Ice-T Something Awful!



I got a lil’ birdie that says Rick Ross and Foxy Brown (aka Roxy) might be attending the BET Awards tonight in Los Angeles. Now, nobody knows for sure, but I hear The Boss did an interview on “106 and Park” and they asked him if he was taking a date. Do you want to know what he said? He said, “We’ll see” and people will have to “stay tuned.” I guess we’ll just have to wait. I wonder what Rocsi says about the couple’s name “Roxy.”


I am getting intel that rapper Dolla beat up rapper 2 Pistols right inside the BET Awards radio room. Not sure, but I heard that 2 Pistols said that Dolla’s song "Who the F**k is That" was his very first song. DAMN. At least….the song is hot…if it is his first song. Then add T-Pain gets in the mix. Oh well. More drama in Rapperland.

Here is the press release – yes, press release – sent out from Dolla’s people.

Subject: **MEDIA ALERT - DOLLA knocks out 2 Pistols at the BET Awards**


LOS ANGELES, CA - June 26, 2008 - Atlanta based rap artist Dolla (The Gang Ent./Konvict Muzik/Jive) "Knocks Out" rapper 2 Pistols at the Shrine Auditorium during the Media Day Event at the BET Awards '08. 2 Pistols was immediately rushed to the nearest hospital. The physical altercation occurred on Monday, June 23, 2008 after Dolla heard 2 Pistols making a public statement to the media that Dolla has no street credibility and isn't really a rap artist from the streets. Dolla had no issues to prove he is from the street. With the latest release of his single, "Loud Mouth," off his "Another Day Another Dolla Mixtape," Dolla had no issues calling out loud mouth "rappers types" one in particular being 2 Pistols. Dolla confronted 2 Pistols at the event about his public statements and knocked out the rap artist with a single jab.

ASCAP AWARDSThe Ascap Rhythm Soul awards were as peaceful as a flock of doves. This event is a very upscale classy affair and it attracts the cream of the crop. Anyway, New Edition got honored and the whole group was there. They were the stars of the night. But there was a lil star named Shawty Lo. He performed "Dey Know." My sources thought he might diss T.I., but he didn't. He just did his shuffle-foot dance to the delight of the crowd. Other rappers there were Flo Ridah, J. Holiday (rapper look-alike), Skillz, Luda and....Ne-Yo, since he wants to diss Chris Brown. LOL.NEW EDITION MOVIE?The New Edition movie? YEP! Fans of NE are going to go bonkers, because the group is planning to do a total movie about the inner workings of "the original boy band." Ronnie Devoe announced it at the ASCAP Awards and said it will help people to know the "half of the half."Bobby Brown definitely stole the show and Biv knew it. Bobby spoke about them kicking him out and started cussing. He said they kicked him out of the group and he's now "working on another marriage." So, I guess Bob has a new boo! Ok, son son! Bobby said "When I'm in the group, they call it 'Just for men" and said he's still young. Bobby Crazy.<!--[if !supportLineBreakNewLine]--><!--[endif]-->


Timbaland got married for the second time in Aruba. The super Hip-hop producer actually missed his producer of the year honors at the Ascap Awards to do something NORMAL! He officially married publicist Monique Idlett on Sunday and Missy Elliott and Keri Hilson were in the place to be. Guess who else was there? Omarion, rapper Magoo, Ginuwine, Nate "Danja" Hills and Jimmy Iovine and others. I wonder…if…(I am going to stop right there!

DEFENDING T.I.Regarding yesterday's controversy over T.I., my homey sent me an expanation anyway. I almost didn't do the rumors today so, I'm not going to do the additional research on this. Just read yesterday to get the perspective. "Peace Fam, I just wanted to shed some light on the TI situation in Chicago. Dude was late for the show, but only because he had alot of obligations when he hit the city. I know personally that he was at a DTLR store as soon as he landed to do a free meet and greet with fans and dj's in the market. He even stayed late to sign autographs for the shorites in the hood (76th and Stony Island). Tip was suppose to come out here when he caught that case, so he was trying to make good on some past due obligations. On top of that, this was the day that the dudes got indited for killing his hommie out in Ohio, so I know he had alot on his mind.... Im not really a TI fan, and personally I rock with Luda, but I think the peeps should cut dude a little slack!!!! Peace & Respect!"AMMO FOR ICE-T?<!--[if !supportLineBreakNewLine]--><!--[endif]-->

Soulja Boy drives his fans insane….have we forgotten Soulja Girl? Thanks Shelz!


D-Tay talks about how close he and 50 Cent are. <!--[if !supportLineBreakNewLine]--><!--[endif]-->

SHAQ DISSES THE MESS OUTTA KOBEShelz: Ya know, I don't even know what to say about this. We are all aware being a rapper is Shaq-Fu's non-basketball obsession. He's been recording for 15 years and say what you want, Shaq Diesel went platinum. So somebody was feeling him. But I had not had the pleasure of witnessing his freestyle skills until now. And whoa...... Now a few hours later after revisitng what he said in this freestyle, he told the folks over at ESPN that he was just having fun. Blah Blah. He and Kobe are cool. Blah Blah. It's nothing and people should accept it as that. Blah Blah Blah. Take a look at this vid (compliments of TMZ) and tell me if this is just some fun, free-spirited rapping. So Kobe? How does it taste? 

Damn, Kobe…Last year you was the man, Kobe! Y’all forget…Kobe can spit too!


This is a statement issued by Mr. Collipark about the beef between Ice-T and Soulja Boy.

"It's a sad day when a 40 year old black man who means so much to the foundation of hip hop goes in on a 17 year old black kid in the name of selling a record. I really looked up to the accomplishments of Ice T. He went from being a skinny pimp with a perm rapping over gangster beats to one of the most talented actors to be birthed from hip hop. I can't understand why instead of reaching out to Soulja Boy behind the scene and having a talk with him about his views on Soulja's influence, he chose the route of dissing him. On top of all that, he wasn't that good a rapper himself, but he stood for hip hop. Therefore, I had love for him. What's even worse, the blogs that i've seen on the internet don't see anything wrong with his attack. It's not even about music at this point. He is a disgrace as a black man. That's sick. That's the state of shit in the world right now. There is no sense of right or wrong anymore. It's every man for himself. Good luck y'all!"

[Correction: Ice-T was a GREAT rapper-always. Stop that.]


Diddy is so caked up that he’s building with Burger King in ways only we can imagine. Enter The Sean Jean Frypod:


As you know, the homey Rass Kass is incarcerated, but I believe he will be out later this year. Here is his new address for you guys that want to write him. He is definitely writing people back.


R. Austin T

99907 GIA 205L 900

Quebec 2V PO Box 7100

Corcoran, CA 93212

That’s some address!


The “beef” between Ice-T and Soulja Boy has gone mainstream. Check out the clip and see the ways rappers are “caked up” and have their “cake” while eating it too.


Nas performed at Club Love this passed Friday and I am being told that HORSE is back with the Bravehearts. I don’t know if you all remember who he is, but he was a former bodyguard that picked up the mic. Now, it was a bit turbulent in the rap game and he went and got married. Shout out to Big Ed from urbanflavorz.com


Baby JD! Word on the skreet is that JD and JJ are looking to have a baby real soon.

Congrats: Jill Scott recently announced an engagement to be married.

LIVE: The BET Awards are straight live today. Don’t blink.

They Say: Alicia Keyes is going to perform with 90’s super group En Vogue at the BET Awards.

Rumor has it, Lil Wayne wants a new deal with Cash Money due to his newfound sales power.

You know – DMX was arrested. He needs a driver.

You know – Nate Dog was arrested. Not a good time for dogs, eh?

Jump that broom! American Idol winner Ruben Studdard has obtained a marriage license and is all set to get hitched.


Jay-Z talks to UK’s Radio1 about the friction surrounding his headlining the Glastonbury Festival:

"These barriers that they have are only put up there to separate us- They are there so people have a way of filing the music but that's not the way kids today listen to music.”

Don Imus on Adam “PacMan” Jones as it relates to his legal woes:

“What color is he? [“He’s African American,” said his co-host] Well, there you go. Now we know.”

Will Smith gets deep…very deep or a Scientologist:

“I study the patterns of the universe. I watch how things happen, because they happen the same way over and over again. Definitely plot it out in advance. But I would say, as far as hitting the mark for exactly where I’m aiming, that’s kind of rare. There’s a flow of the universe that I’ve grown to know just how to go with it.”

On his M.O. on preserving his sexy, Diddy says:

"It takes me two hours to get ready. Worse than any woman I've ever been with. I take a long bath and then moisturise with oils when I'm still wet so that it all seeps into my pores."

Lisa Van Allen to Essence on how she linked with R. Kelly as an underage girl [Essence]:

“He started with a kiss, and from there we leaned back, and I just didn’t stop him. I was kind of worried that he wouldn’t want to see me again after that, but I wasn’t worried about the actual act at that time because I was just honored that he picked me. Being a young girl, I was like, “Wow.” I wasn’t thinking as a woman would. Now that I’m older, things are different. I would never go that route today. As a child, you don’t make all the right decisions. That’s why young girls shouldn’t be involved with grown men.”

Lil’ Mama is pissed at her label. She gets a lil’ cocky with it. [rap-up .com]:

“I’m very disappointed in my label, Jive Records, for not promoting my record properly. I’m not a rapper first and foremost. I’m the birth of hip-pop. I’m an innovator and everything that I do is fresh. When you have something so new and fresh in your hands, you’re supposed to know what to do with it. By signing with a label, I signed knowing that everyone was on the same page as me and understanding what was going on. But that wasn’t what I thought it was.”

Xzibit on alien life forms.

"I don't believe in aliens. I don't think aliens or ghosts like black people. We never get abducted. Our houses never get haunted.”

I guess Lil Wayne doesn’t count.


You knew the game and you still ended up on your back…now ask yourself…

Everybody loves a pimp is a song that was created by Slim Thug. But, what if your pimp is a little person and you are an underage prostitute? On Monday, a dwarf was charged with putting an underage girl on a hoe-stroll in New York. Even more unique is the fact that this pimp is a woman. Jacqueline Green, a.k.a. “Shorty,” who is 3 foot 9 inches tall, is charged with “promoting prostitution and child endangerment for allegedly pimping a 15-year-old that ran away from a troubled home.” Her clientele paid $250 per half-hour for sexual intercourse, and about $100 per half-hour of oral sex. Green says she didn’t do it, but snitch neighbors are now ratting her out. Anyway, the dwarf is only 26. Maybe the girl didn’t know the game.


If you don’t love this, kill yo’ self! The Japanese invented the remix. We got one, they got one. Even Ray Charles – God Bless The Dead.


My boy put this on youtube and I figured I’d help him get some attention. This is the actor boy that plays both the female and the male roles.
