TODAY'S RUMORS!KELLY IS CHEATING ON ME WITH USHER!?
Kelly is really starting to upset me. I cut her off
and now she is just spiting me. According to the Daily Star, Usher and
Kelly Rowland were in the UK balling out and spending obscene amounts
of money on champagne and vodka at the Amika nightclub. They said Nelly
was there too, but the main focus of the story was Kelly, not Nelly.
They are saying that to have these secret meetings, they have to link
in Europe. SMH.
Anyway, although Usher and Tomeke are reportedly OK, this seems to suggest there is a problem in Usherville.
RICK ROSS IS ALIVE
I got word from my homies in Virgina that Rick Ross had died. Now, you know, I stopped everything I was doing to verify that. We dont want that tragedy. Come to find out, it seems, that one of Ross friends had passed away and word of mouth got carried away.
B.o.B. GETS DOWN WITH T.I.
You know B.o.B., right? Hes the young upstart from down in the Dirty. Some people have referred to him as a young Andre 3000 with the flow, but hes definitely his own person. Anyway, from what I heard, he is now officially a member of the Grand Hustle team and has signed on to bolster the staff with Big Kuntry and Alfamega and them. Its also very cool that B.o.B. was an artist that has been represented in AllHipHops Breeding Ground. So, some of us have already seen him rock the stage as well as heard him on the mixtapes.
JUELZ SANTANA TALKS
Did you hear the new? The new interview with Juelz Santana? Below is what most closely resembles some rumor stuff, but the whole interview is right here .. Juelz Santana: Skull Gang Primer, Pt. 1.
AllHipHop.com: Speaking of family, you began your career as part of one of the most powerful movements in Hip-Hop, the Diplomats...
Juelz: I am the Diplomats movement. I ain't parts of it, I am it.
AllHipHop.com: Well, to be fair, that's the way it seems since you and Jim are the only ones still repping for the Dips.
Juelz to AllHipHop.com: Thats what I want all the fans to know, thats what were doing. Bottom line is, theres a thin line between loyalty and stupidity. N****s tried to make the situation work the best way possible. It just got to a point where I couldnt. Like I told people, I got to a point where I got tired of being taken advantage of. I felt like I wasnt getting my just due for the work I was putting in.
Juelz to AllHipHop.com: It wasnt like I was asking for back credit or back money which was there but thats nothing to me. The whole point was about moving on and it just didnt happen and not because of me. I been blessed to see all the things Ive seen so early. Im still young. But I want the fans to know what were doing. Like, what if we wouldve just sat back and waited for Cam to sit there and decided to do what he wanted to do? Nobody really even heard from Cam in a minute so where would we be? Then how would our Dipset fans be looking at us like, Where y'all at?
Q-TIP AND MOD GET INTO IN A BIT
Yesterday Q-Tip was on a panel and was getting into a semi-heated debate with a writer named Jon Caramanica. From what I was told it was all over Hip-Hop mostly about hot producers of the moment. Tip apparently argued that it was all about the stock producers like Timbaland, Ron Browz, and others. Producers = hit records. Caramanica charged that it's easier to make a hit record now without the pricey producers. I think this happened at the CMJ convention that just started in NYC.
50 CENT AND LOLA LUV THE REAL DEAL
I forgot this totally. Too many rumors. 50 Cent and Lola have an arrangement on the music side. Click here to read the story on it. So um she is supposedly rapping with 50 Cent too. See the video below.
T.I. GETS BALLER BLOCKED
"Swing Ya Rag" is a great song. There is a problem with it. The song seems to refer to a lifestyle very closely related to gang culture and getting active. Well, the video for the song has been blocked, because in T.I. video, he is swinging rags by Louis Vuitton and Gucci. Both companies have hit him with copyright infringement charges and have stopped the video from coming out. SMH. Even the fashinistas know what rap music is really saying. We need a new code. Swing Ya Coffee Cup or Swing Ya Shoestrings. We need something they cant understand.
JAY-Z / COLDPLAY ALBUM?
Did you hear the new Coldplay song with Jay-Z? Check that out. So, we have been hearing multiple rumors that Jay-Z and Coldplay are going to do an album together and so on. Well, thats cool and I think its a good idea. I do wonder what Hip-Hop will say. But, in the midst of all this Coldplay/Jay Z talk, I am hearing a new rumor. There is supposedly a really big time DJ creating a mixtape ala the Gray Album. (Do you remember that?) This effort will be combining Jays musical elements with Coldplay elements. It almost sounds mythical.
A REAL BATTLE ROXANNE SHANTE VS BUSY BEE
By the end of the battle, Busy Bee seemed like he was getting heated. Roxanne Shante was a beaaaaaast! This was off the top of the head too. WOW! 1985!
When/if you listen to this all the way to the end, you WILL get a kick out of the celebrity judges decision. Thanks Jubilee Shine!
Diddy gets business bizzy after buying Enyce from Liz Claiborne:
Im extremely excited about this purchase, Combs told AllHipHop.com exclusively. And above all, as a black businessman I want to keep inspiring the African-American community to keep moving forward and pursuing opportunities in business. Black entrepreneurship and wealth building is very important to me and I want the youth and everyone to know these goals are attainable to them as well.
T-Pain talks about his love of fam and marriage.
I love reading my daughter to sleepshe loves this one book called Ducks in Muck. Ill be at a club, just surrounded by hos, and Ill literally call my wife, like, Im so, so happy I married you.
MORE ON DIDDY! DIDDY AS T LA ROCK?
What the HECK? There are rumors stating that Diddy looking to play in the movie about rapper T La Rock. The movie is about the legendary, old-school rap king Terry T La Rock Keaton. He was really the very first artist to work with Russell Simmons and Rick Rubin under the Def Jam banner. Denzel Washington is supposedly the man behind this story! Wow. In 1994, T La Rock was trying to break up a fight and was hit with a brain injury. I hope this movie comes out, I promise it will be better than most rapper flicks you have seen. Shoutout to Jazzy Jay.
Here is a video, after the Russell days. You know, T La Rock was going to sue Russ, but nothing ever came out of it.
Shout out to my Twitter pals like ChicaGOrilla, Gyant, TaiSaintBoogie and others. They told me all about the M.O.P. show at The Loft Atlanta. Wow. Why do I feel like I missed a monumental event? Because I did. How About Some Hardcore!!!
Some of the AHH staff emailed me about Craig G and Agallah dumbing out last night at the Justo Mixtape event last night. I heard they freestyled like crazy! If you have this on video, let me know when its online. I need to see this.
I didnt hear the actual song yet, but I love the fact that Asher Roth has a song called "I Love College." I know its probably about parties and stuff, but you have to get kids there somehow!
Im not even going there with Will Smith and the DL rumors. Wills the big homey! You know I made him the Illseed Person of the Year a couple years ago.
EPIC FAIL OF THE DAY

Dont support them, dont buy from them.
SHELZ DIDDY AND LIL WAYNE
One Day Diddy Will Own the World
I'm not sure when that will be, but he's building his empire one acquisition at a time. Next up, Enyce. The clothing company has been purchased by Mr. Diddy Bop and he's got plans to beef up the label and possibly add some other elements, or as he said "launch into new licensing categories." Hopefully, the brand will remain loyal to the style of its wearers (if there are any left) and not be subject to those awful half-sweaters we saw in the latest Sean John showing. Good luck Diddy.
Lil Lil Wayne .
So someone with a page over at Global Grind posted this very fuzzy, very old video and swears up and down it's Lil Wayne. He said he's a student at the same high school that Wayne attended and this is archive footage of a play that Wayne was in when he was a 7th grader. I don't now if it's him or not, but the kid posting the video said the school wouldn't let him have a copy per Mr. Carter's orders so he filmed it with his phone or something.
THE BLACK MALE THEME SONG
This song is so ill.
CITIZENS ARREST KARL ROVE!?!
GUNNING FOR THAT NO. 1 SPOT!
Peep this crazy fresh B-ball documentary trailer with Bobbito and Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys. It would really be nice to get paid to do something other than what youve been doing for 10 years. Hint.
THE LO LIFES CALL KANYE A BITER
Kanye is way gone from those Polo days though.
I love the 80s.
IM OUT, BUT FIRST
OBAMA AND BIDEN, WE LOVE YOU! EVERYTHING'S GONNA BE ALRIGHT!
