T.I. PROB NOT HOME YET!
After doing some investigating ok I didnt, but some others did. It would appear that T.I. is probably still in jail.
This is where they say Tip is and will be until late March:
FCI Forrest City Low The Federal Correctional Institution (FCI) - Low in Forrest City is a low security facility housing male offenders. It is part of the Forrest City Federal Correctional Complex (FCC). A satellite prison camp adjacent to the facility houses minimum security male offenders. FCI Forrest City is located in eastern Arkansas, 85 miles east of Little Rock and 45 miles west of Memphis, Tennessee. Judicial District: Eastern Arkansas Actively Hiring: This location is in urgent need of physician assistants to fill vacant positions.
Now, I am not some expert here, but this says he is technically still in a minimum-security facility. Hey, they are hiring. Maybe I will go work there and leave the rumors to Chance and Miss Mouth?
Here is the previous rumor.T.I. IS HOME?
The streets are talking. Peep this email I got:
TIP HAS BEEN HOME IN ATL FOR SEVERAL DAYS AND IS CURRENTLY UNDER "HOUSE ARREST"....IF YOU DONT BELIEVE ME CHECK N SEE IF HE IS SOMEONE HAS SEN HIM IN JAIL!! HE WAS IN PROTECTIVE CUSTODY SO NOT ALOT OF PEOPLE SAW HIM, NUT HE HAD A PHONE AND BLACKBERRY IN JAIL WIT HIM THE WHOLE TIME...
Now, what do we have here? There is more to the email, but it looks like T.I. is going to be riding out the rest of his time out of the bing. Now, theres another source saying hes not home per se but in more of a halfway house or something until hes actually released. I am certain his family is happy and hes writing raps if hes home.
THE DAILY TWO SENSE!
GOODNIGHT TWITTER - Love, CHRIS BROWN.
I dont know if you read it, but AllHipHop ran a story this
year called, Twitter
Will End Your Music Career. Did you read it? The reason for the rumor is
Chris Browns Twitter was recently ended following the controversy that he has
been blackballed from retail outlets like Wal-Mart. Over the weekend, Chris
just went off on everybody from haters to people at the stores. He may have
some valid points, but Twitter is probably not the best outlet. ANYWAY, somebody
with some sense pulled the plug and rightfully so. Chris was doing more harm
than good.Shout out to Michael Jackson. I cannot believe he's gone! If Chris thinks he's going through something, he should look at that man's life and times.
THE DAILY TWO SENSE
You know, its getting harder and harder for me to reveal
certain rumors that I get. Man, thats the one thing I like about not really
being too cool with artists or their people. You can say whatever when you
dont know them. As soon as you are cool with them BAM you start thinking
about their feelings and alla that. With that said, I got a couple rumors and I
feel like a nut for not being able to say anything.
RAPPERS R IN DANJA?
I got this email right here. Rappers: stay in your lane.

On the other side, I havent heard about any of this so I cannot verify it at all. Oh man whew! more on this later down the page. BUSTA IN AFRICA I got word from my peeps in Africa that Busta Rhymes was in Nigeria to grace the 2009 edition of the Star Mega Jam. The Flipmode General was there over the weekend alongside Spliff Star. From what I was told Bussa Buss performed in Lagos & Abuja on December 11th and 12th. I heard Luda was there, but my people didnt say much about him. I did see Luda twittering something about Africa, but I didnt think much of it. Luda said something like he feels at home whenever hes in Africa. SIGNS THE WORLD IS COMING TO AN END According to the Associated Press, this girl should have just taken a shower and her mother should be taken to jail. This story is from November, but a girl allegedly was tasered, because she refused to take a shower. What seems to have happened was the 10-year-old was just acting a fool all day and the cops were called. When the cops got there, she dumbed out on them too. Apparently, she kicked one cop in the sack. Then she got tazed and dazed. The mother allegedly gave the OK, but the father later denounced the move. The cop has been put on leave or something pending an investigation. ITS TIMBALANDS LOSS This is what Timbaland had to say about Hip-Hop to MTV: "I was done with hip-hop a long time ago. Once my generation left, I left. I do it, but there's nobody from my generation besides Jay-Z who's doing it. I look at Lil Wayne as being from my generation. Some people are still acceptable. Kanye (West) is acceptable from my generation. It's just not the same. By it not being the same, I kind of fade to black. I did music that fits where I was going to in my age bracket. I believe Tims got some points, but I think that it's actually his own loss in abandoning Hip-Hop and it's all too convenient if you ask me. I mean, Tim is a legend and a trendsetter like no other so Im not dissing. I just think that cats are looking for that pop paper and dont think rap can do that anymore. Jay-Z/Kanye/Wayne and others are definitely proof thats not the case. EPIC WIN OF THE DAY LOL! How to beat a bully! Check this one out . [Source]
SNOOP DOGG IS NEVER GOING TO RETIRE!
Why should he?
HIP-HOP VERSION OF THE VIRGIN MARY?
Can you get kicked out of the house if God is your babydaddy? Oh man...this is too much!
Hey, people...illseed and Chance are two different people so please take note, when you see CHANCE ENCOUNTERS, that is the end of illseed until further notified. I keep getting people talking all crazy about what Chance said. SMH.
PLEASURE P UNDER ATTACKSo while I was gone it came out that Pleasure P was playing with little boys. I was hoping it wasn't true and was relieved when he issued a statement denying the whole thing. But now a woman is coming forward saying although he did not molest her son, she was told about his past by authorities who asked her not to leave her son in the same house as him. SMH if this is true...
KID CUDI NOT SO TOUGHAHH posted the footage of Kid Cudi punching a party-goer he thought threw something at him and it looked like he really gave it to dude. Well, the guy is saying it was nothing and not even worth pressing charges over. Seems like he's a real fan. He says: "I just want to meet
him and be like Im the guy you punched.'" Good to he's not going to try and milk the $ituation.
MORE ON TIMBO
It's no surprise that Hip-Hop isn't high on Timbaland's list of priorities these days. Ever since he got down with Nelly Furtado, he's been a lost cause to us. Well, he's come out and said he wont come back since we don't support our artists and the fans that support him are (basically) white women. Here is more of what Timbo had to say from what illseed already said:"I know 75 percent [of the people who buy my album] are women...I did this research. It's the women who watch Sex and the City, Desperate Housewives all the real go-to-the-bar women...and mostly European women. It's not a person who loves mostly Hip-Hop. It's a person who loves everything besides Hip-Hop..."
Is he turning his back on the next generation or is it the young boys fault for not exciting him anymore...whatever genre he's making now, you can't deny Timbo was one of the "best we ever had." Let the debate begin.P.S. He obviously still supports Drake.
HIYA!!!!So the dude from Twilight who also happens to be Taylor Swift's boyfriend took this opportunity to pretend beat up Kanye...where was all this chivalry at the VMA's when he ran up on your jawn???
DON'T CALL IT A COMEBACK
Beat boxing has been a major part of Hip-Hop from day one and it's good to see this tradition isn't dead yet:
Shaq's soon to be ex-wife just got the go ahead to produce a reality show centered around the wives, ex-wives and baby mothers of Jermaine ONeal, Antoine Walker, Udonis Haslem, Eric Williams and Dwight Howard, who is suing his wife for posting not-so-flattering information about him online (he's looking for $500 a view or $9.5 million). Even though Shaunie O'neil wont be a regular on the show she may make occasional appearances. At least the wives are getting some shine and not the mistresses this time around.
TELL EM WHY YOU MAD SON!!!!The 2010 Grammy nominations came out a little while ago and not everyone is happy about the list. The Dream went in on Twitter about his disgust with the academy and the industry in general...how dare they not recognize his brilliance..."BaBy, yo Baby, yo Baby, Yo Baby etc..."
Isnt it funny the best album of 2009 didnt get a nomination for the second year strait [sic]...Man, Im black. Im paranoid, I already
expect bullsh anyway. When I see the names nominated, Im saying, Are
you saying my name dont belong with the people in this category?...Nobody released more titles. Its not even close. Its not even close, dude...When youre growing up, it means so much...the Grammys always pull out the best s**t. I dont think that happens now. I should be able to get nominated or be able
to win based off the strength of music if were talking about the best music. If its a popularity contest, lets just say its a
popularity contest."Does anybody even still believe the Grammys are based on quality???
I'M JUST SAYIN'The Game says he's going to win a Grammy with his new album ... it has Justin Timberlake on it.MTV says So Far Gone was the '09 mixtape of the year...big surprise there...what else had as much impact???In a ceremony on January 30, 2010, Michael Jackson will receive a lifetime achievement Grammy Award.Jim Jones says even though he doesn't like Jay-Z, he still respects his music...he wrapped it up by saying "f**k that ni**a and the camel he rode in on".Chris Brown deleted his Twitter yesterday. Didn't say why.Kelis says RiRi and and Cassie duplicated her style. I credit FeFe Dobson as the originator of RiRi's persona.
Some people were upset Floyd Mayweather left a photo shoot for 2 1/2 hours to go to the bank. That must have been a hell of a withdrawal and we know Floyd has a penchant for making it rain.
Here is the pic of Soulja Boy and Lil Scrappy's matching tattoos I told you about yesterday:
FOXY, WE LOVE YOU!!!
