THE DAILY TWO CENTS
Good luck Cali. This is really crazy to see those fires poppin up all over the place. I cant fathom it. Over in The New York/ New Jersey area, they had a tornado watch. Crazy! These are times that test the heart, nerve and soul. Be strong.

T.I. AND SHAWTY LO HEATS UP AGAIN
TIP and Akon had a concert over the weekend in Wichita, KS (Nov. 15) and he had some choice words for Shawty Lo. Before he performed "What's Up, What's Happenin" he said something along the lines of him having haters all over the world. Then before "Live Your Life" he said you cant be considered successful, until you have some haters in your life. After that, Tip reportedly said, Yall can have some of my haters since I have so many. Shawty Lo and his crew stay hatin! F**k them n****s! Then he sang "Live Your Life." Well, it was bound to happen. Hopefully, it just stays a war of words or no words at all.
LIL KIMS NEW MAN?
This was emailed to me and I am adding it to the rumor page word for word, typo for typo:
Hey... I got a letter fwd'd from a lawyer just that fast. Thanks. Will update later.
Honestly, Im not sure I believe this has any merit so dont blame me if there is a statement issued immediately denying it.
THE STEP SHOW GOES ON WITH BOBBY VALENTINO
Last night, on the 15th, the University of Florida hosted their annual "Battle of the Greeks" step show, which was phenomenal. Anyways, I heard Bobby Valentino was there as a special guest. The only this is, he said he wasn't going to perform long because he didn't want to hold up the stepshow. The odd thing is, when he said this, the step show was over. I heard he grooved to about five songs that he cameoed on, but werent actually his. Then, he did get into some joints that were his you know oldies, but goodies. He refused to continue the show, because the security wouldn't let the females to the stage. I heard he also cursed out his own security guard. Everybody needs security these days, huh? Times are tough.
THE LONDON URBAN AWARDS END HORRIBLY
London, please chill out. My boy Chris hit me up from London and tells me that there were about three stabbings at the Urban Music Awards over the weekend. This went down at the O2 Indigo arena. Police locked the place down! Man, why do a few fools always have to mess something up for the rest of us. I heard the lovely Estelle was there, along with Dizzee Rascal and others. Now, some people say they heard gunshots and then it was absolute mayhem. That is actually when the stabbings happened, amidst the chaos. Why did this happen? I heard some producers gave a rapper a beat and then turned around and sold the same beat to an American. Well, the dollar isnt worth a lick so I hope thats not the case. Anyway, thats possibly where it all started.
I have been talking about Katt Williams quite a bit in the rumors. Click here to read abut the latest of him and his seeming meltdown. Read: Katt Williams Hospitalized for Psychiatric Treatment.
Tyrese sent me an email and said I just finished Transformers 2!!! I cant wait for that. I only hope they leave the comedy alone and bring the big guns.
Did Mos Defs recent arrest prevent him from making it to the UKs Rock The Bells? People in the UK are asking me since they wanted to see him there.
Rumor has is G.W. Bush is going to pardon MAD people before he leaves office. Furthermore, I heard Bush's plans to block all investigations of his crimes and even to pardon everyone involved - including Cheney and himself. Chris Matthews is even counting down the days.
Im sure you heard this already, but Yung Berg is reportedly working on a new chain of his whole body with a detachable Louie backpack. Stay away from Trick Trick and them!
R.I.P. TRL I never watched anyway, but some of the young bucks are all broken up over it.
EPIC FAIL OF THE DAY
A jury gave justice to Jordan Gruver, a 16-year-old teenager that was attacked by a facet of the Ku Klux Klan. The teen was awarded $2.5 million in damages by a jury on Friday. The Imperial Klans of America FAILED. There is so much fail here, I nearly cannot process it. First, they attacked a person (Jordan) thinking he was Hispanic/Latino and an illegal immigrant. WRONG. Jordan is Panamanian and Native-American. Second, they cannot afford to pay the $2.5 million they are losing. So that means Jordan gets all of their assets. What are there assets? According to CNN, they own a 15-acre compound in Dawson Springs, Kentucky. Take that, boyeeeeee . I dont know if Jordan would want to live there though, since the land is probably filthy with hate and mental sickness. The jury was all White and they blessed Jordan even though he was looking to get $6 million. I would have giving him a cool $10 million for the hell of it. They beat him up and left him with a broken jaw, broken left forearm, two cracked ribs and cuts and bruises. He also has nightmares and rarely sleeps over two hours straight.
SIGNS THE WORLD IS COMING TO AN END
A man weighing 430-Pounds is getting out of jail early. Thats right. Check out this AP report.
TORONTO An obese inmate who goes by the nickname "Big Mike" has been granted early parole because a Canadian prison could not accommodate his 430-pound frame.
Michel Lapointe, 37, was released from prison earlier this week after serving 25 months in Montreal's Bordeaux Jail for conspiracy, drug trafficking and gangsterism.
The Quebec Parole Board said this week that it based its decision for an early release on Lapointe's health, along with factors such as good behavior and the support of his wife and mother.
The two-officer board stressed that Lapointe was not violent and did not pose a risk to society.
Lapointe will have to follow a series of conditions, such as finding a job and staying away from bars. He will also have to meet with a parole officer on a regular basis over the next three months.
A former chef, Lapointe was arrested on drug-related charges in 2006. In February 2008, he pleaded guilty to all of his charges. At the time of his arrest, Lapointe weighed 375 pounds.
Defense lawyer Clemente Monterosso said the prison's poor diet caused his client to gain more than 50 pounds.
THE GAME IN AFRICA
It doesnt look like Bishop Lamont is gonna get that beef he wants, because Game is in the Motherland!
WANDA SYKES COMES OUT
I always suspected that she was gay, but now it is official. I wonder if Trick Trick will include her in the beef.
She said: You know, I dont really talk about my sexual orientation. I didnt feel like I had to. I was just living my life, not necessarily in the closet, but I was living my life. Everybody that knows me personally they know Im gay. But thats the way people should be able to live their lives.

Pure Folly...Rihanna Cancels a Show but gets $800 worth of Undies...Must Be Nice!
Rihanna cancelled a show in Indonesia that was sold out to 6,000 fans. Apparently Rih Rih decided to can the show after her performance in Australia. On the upside her beau Chris breezy dropped $800 on her while they were out shopping in Paddington. Now $800 may not seem outrageous for a purchase but when its for some under garments now that LOVE! Read the details below:
Chris and his love, the worlds hottest pop singer, Rihanna, spent half an hour inside Ariane Lingerie in Paddington. And he dipped into his pocket to buy The Shut Up and Drive singer $800 on sexy undies, a surefire pick-me-up after her stage troubles at the weekend. The With You singer might also have been checking an even closer look at the merchandise than normal, having recently signed a deal to sell his own line of underwear.
hmmm... must of been some real nice Lingerie ;-)
Knocked up Swag... Pregnant Man Edition
Yup folks you read the title right, pregnant man Thomas Beatie is knocked up again and is expected to deliver in June! Read below via the Sun Times:

Barbara Walters whos profiling Beatie and his wife in a one-hour special tomorrow night on ABC called Journey of a Pregnant Man revealed today on The View that during their interview, the couple said theyll give birth again in June. I said Im speechless, Walters said during the morning gab fest. Beatie legally a man gave birth to his first child, a baby girl, back in June.

Something tells me ole dude is about to start some type of fad! But hell Im just glad someone else besides Ushers wife is knocked up! While Im on the subject of Usher....
Chilli Clears the Air for Publicity... Again!
So Chilli is featured in an Essence mag interview and she once again is asked about Tameeka and Usher relationship... and instead of keeping it real and saying Tameeka looks like Sasquatch.. She decided to take another approach! Check it out:
On whether Tameka broke up her relationship with Usher
When people ask whether or not I think she is the reason we broke up, I have no clue what Usher was doing outside of our relationship. When we broke up, it was because it wasnt working out. I later found out there was some infidelity, but he never said who that woman or who those women were, because Im sure it was more than one. Again, I heard things, but Tameka never crossed my mind. The first time I strolled across that [infamous] beach photo I thought somebody photoshopped that. I didnt believe it. I did wonder if she was one of the girls, but again, I never asked. My memory of her was that she was the stylist.
Doesn't she realize if she wants to really get some pub she should just say how she really feels... It would be a hell of a lot more entertaining! DAMN.
SHELZ BRINGS IT HOME WITH HER QUIRKY THOUGHTS!
God Don't Like Ugly
Do you remember Bishop Weeks? He was married to National Evangelist Juanita Bynum and then beat her up and then got divorced and then started the holy online dating show to find his next wife? Well, his church was evicted from its building. Weeks lost half (yes, only half) of his congregation after his wife said he laid his mean man hands on her. So I guess the half he lost was the half that tithed because the landLORD said he hadn't paid his rent since July. They are holding service at Holiday Inn till they figure out what to do.
Common Is Single and Cheap?
I said single because he's still trying to convince people that he's not dating Serena Williams. Now he is going on telling media that Hip-Hop is his girlfriend, not the Grand Slam champ. IF that's the case...LISTEN TO THIS:
