TI VS TIP: THE REVENGE. A NEW ALBUM!
Thats right, everybody. Somebody lit a fire under T.I. and he is about to come back with a vengeance. One of my esteemed writer friends interviewed T.I. and T.I.P. said hes going to return with a new album called T.I.P vs T.I: The Revenge! Guess what? He wants to drop it this year! Now, he and we know that is not likely to happen, but we can hope. Anyway, he said this CD would pick up right where T.I vs T.I.P. left off. On top of all that, hes got the artists he wants to work with lined up. You guys are on notice The King wants to work with you Dr Dre, Outkast, Alicia Keys, Robin Thicke and Mary J Blige.
GHOSTFACE IN IRON MAN?
Well, well, well what do we have here? According to Urb magazine, Hip-Hops Iron Man Ghostface Killah is going to make an appearance in the upcoming film, Iron Man. Robert Downey Jr. is going to be playing the role of Tony Stark, who has the alter ego of Iron Man. These sources are saying that Ghost will actually play a sheikh living in Dubai and he might be a good guy that helps Tony. I think it is a good idea that Ghost is down with Iron Man. Id hate to see him get merked off in the blockbuster of 2008. Dont do it Marvel! Ghosts role might have some sort of political implications since his character is from the Middle East.
FLAVOR FLAV IS COMING BACK!
If you thought Flavor of Love was over, because of a few bastard spin-offs? No. Flavor of Love TRE is on the way. Flav seems to be a bit unlucky in love so he is trying for a third time. I want to know what happened with Deelishus. If you are a transsexual, you are also allowed to enter the contest as well. Im just saying well, Im not saying anything.
Shout out to Brock.
DRAMA FOR LIL WAYNE?
I dont make this stuff up, but according to the Miami New Times, there was some potential drama for Lil Wayne down in the town. There is a rapper named Brisco that hails from Opa-Locka and he was shooting a video. Well, there was all sorts of drama, because wherever they were shooting the vid, there were some local hustlers that offered some friction. Fortunately the situation was diffused. Then, Lil Wayne was supposed to appear, but was very late. I guess he was just taking his time in his Rolls Royce. Well, yada, yada, yada the situation gets diffused too. They all had a lil time out and they wrapped the whole video, with Wayne involved at like 9:30 Wednesday (Aug. 2) night. Wayne got out of there safely, but afterwards, I heard the guns were going off. I never been to this area, but I heard even cops are afraid to go down there.
CASSIE RUMORS SHES TURNED TO ACTING!
AHA! Here is another one for heads to jack! People love Cassie. Shes the special babe in the new Kanye video and shes taking it a step farther with Step Up 2. The songbird is currently shooting the feature film. From what I understand, shes got a song on the soundtrack called Is It You and its hot.
On top of that, Cassie is going to be a spokes person for Sean John. Did I mention Sean John? Yes, ladies, Diddy is launching Sean Jean Women next spring. Scoop that up and spit it out into the atmosphere. I think I need a radio show. Anyway, the heavily dimpled Lauren London and Asia from the Pussycat Dolls will reportedly join Cassie in the ads.
DYLAN GETS A NEW DEAL
After all these years, we finally get that album from Dylan DilinJah, the former member of Diddys Band. This isnt even a rumor. Check out a part of the press release.
Uprising Records is especially excited about DilinJah's recent signing to the label, for despite being primarily known as a rock label, and more recently moving into the realm of Hip Hop (with releases by Amir Sulaiman, and iCON The Mic King as well as more slated by the likes of Tragedy Khadafi, and Taj Mahal) - Uprising's first release some 14 years ago was actually a reggae album, and the label's owner, Sean Muttaqi, has long been involved in the reggae and dancehall scenes (both as musician, as well as fan).
Congrats to Dylan. He stood up to Diddy and got parodies by Chappelle. What else is there?
I MISS MY LAURYN!
I dont know who these people are, but they scored an interview with Lauryn Hill. At any rate, this proves that she isnt crazy, because gems are being dropped.
THE MOST RELIGIOUS SONNING EVER.
My goodness. This was sent to me from Doniela and it had me in STITCHES. YO. This could easily be a quickie, but it deserves its own category so that everybody gets a huge laugh. I dont know about the Church of Mormons, but these young men got a first class religious sonning. Word to God - DONT LET THE DOO-RAG FOOL YA!
Hey, you listen to me! LMBAO!
I KNOW PIMP C SAID SORRY, BUT
You really have to HEAR his apology and it definitely speaks louder than his previous statement. Click here to listen in. Hell, it really makes me wanna say sorry to somebody and I didnt even do anything wrong. Check out Pimp C and DJ Greg Street, who gave the TX Boss the platform to talk on. Can Jeezy get a lil' "shorry" is all I want to know.
DID CHAMILLIONAIRE BITE?
I dont think Cham is the biter type so his Hip-Hop Police stands. This guy deserves a look regardless, because both the song and the video are hype. This is Seazon, hes from Canada and hes got a pretty hot video right here.
HIP-HOP WRITES A LETTER TO MCDONALDS
Thats right. Illsee I mean, Hip-Hop took time out of its busy day to write a letter to McDonalds in light of the dropping of our brother Twista. This letter talks about the love/love relationship with the establishment known in Anyhood, USA as Mickey Deez. Just read the darn letter!
AYO! 50 CENT AND JUSTIN AND TIMBALAND PUT THE VID OUT!
MORE ON JAY-Z
So here is the definition of statutory employer:
One who employs another (as a contractor) to perform work in the course of a business and who is liable for workers' compensation according to a statute establishing such an employment relationship or liability.
So from what I understand, Jay-Z is probably not liable for the claims of that employee, because he is more of a silent partner that has nothing to do with the day-to-day operations. Again, Im not sure how that would protect him from legal action, but I guess thats why I didnt go to law school.
More on Jay-Z. My homey and I were choppin it up and he asked me what if Jay-Z does go to Columbia. Thats where DMX is signed right now and Def Jam let him go under Jay-Z's regime! Remember these words from the Dog in VIBE?
The flip-flops - hes just not the same. Its Beyoncé. Hes a sucker for love. Yo, no matter how much vacation Im on - we been to St. Thomas, Bahamas, all the little islands - I dont wear no flip-flops. Im never that comfortable, not even in my own house.
Looks like DMX might feel the corporate wrath of Jigga. I just hope Jay doesn't feel the street wrath of X.
GOD BLESS ODB!
Here is the trailer for Ol Dirty Bastards documentary. Was ODB killed? Mannnnnnn dont get me started. This is sad, man.
Check out the first episode of Kimoras new show, compliments of AOL Black Voices. Please tell them illseed sent you over there.
My boss forbade me to write about Rocsi from 106 & Park, but I am going to say it anyway. I heard that the Memphis rapper Kia Shine is dating the hostess.
Did reggae-pop artist Sean Kingston get robbed in New York for his chain after a performance at Club Avalon? Just a question.
I heard the homey Donnie Goines signed a deal? Donnie, come out, come out wherever you are!
I know a lot of you are going to that King Eminem site and saying thats whats next for Em. Interscope has reportedly shot that down, claiming its actually a hoax.
Mel B formally filed a paternity suit against Eddie Murphy. Damn, Norbit won with Tracey and then lost.
Common wins. He is expected to push about 150k of his new album, Finding Forever.
SUPERHEAD GETS TOSSED IN THE TRASH!
Superhead has a mouth on her. See, I know what you are thinking, but I didnt even mean it like that. I meant she seemed to be poppin too much trash and a dude physically picks her up and drops her booty in the trash. I give her credit that mouth kept on talking.
SIGNS THE WORLD IS COMING TO AN END!
Have you ever been hit with a brick? How about a fish that hits as hard as a brick? Oh yeah, human, Mother Nature is slapping you up. There is a 40-mile stretch of water in Florida where the fish decided, Were not having it and they are hitting humans at an alarming rate. Ask Allie about the fish known as a sturgeon referring humans to surgeons:
Allie Katrick, 14, of Brevard County, Fla., was recently on a jet ski with her friend Kori Snitker, when a sturgeon leaped in front of them. The sturgeon's thick armor-like skin sliced into her knee, requiring stitches.
THIS IS WHY IM HOTCUZ IM DEPLOYED
I thought it was hot yesterday, but I can't imagine what the troops in Iraq must feel. SMH at spending all this money, time and energy on war and New Orleans is still in shambles. Time magazine gets deep.
