YESTERDAY'S RUMORSHip-Hop Rumors: Did Somebody Poop In Lupe's Car? Did Bad Boy's New Act! More Rumors Candidates!TEST FAILED!
You know, when you
have a job you get sick days. You get sick and you get allocated days to take off. Guess, what? Illseed gets ill from time to time. Today is one of those days. I put it in the page the other day that I was feeling a lil weird, but does anybody care? NO. And why would you? If Im not doing rumors, Im useless to people like Tywlite! Its all good I pulled myself up just enough to do some stuff that may or may not be up to par. One person did
hit me up, but Im not going to say their name. But, thats a good look homey! (Most people take sick days and they aren't even sick!!!)
Damn, I feel like Ghostface
IRON MIKE TYSON IN SOUTH AFRICA!
If you are from South Africa, email me! Yo! Somebody I know is in South Africa and told me that Iron
Mike Tyson is out there too! Guess what? Iron Mike has cause a whirlwind of
issues, because of his rape conviction! ANC (African National Congress) president
Jacob Zuma cancelled a party for Mike in South Africa
after the people protested his co-signage of the ex-champ. Thats a rumor,
because according to the statement released, Zuma didnt
show due to a more pressing engagement. Oh well, Mike is still Mike! Hes over
there doing some boxing commentary and I heard that Winnie Mandela has no
issues with the Champ. What more is there? I dont know, but its
not a lot.
FREE SAIGON, FREE SAIGON?
Rumor has it, Saigons
album has been pushed back again. I understand that Saigon is very unhappy with
his position at Atlantic and currently looking
for a new deal. I cant say that as fact, but that is the word. Now, we have
already been waiting for years for Saigon to
come back out so what the hell? Just put the damn thing out so we can get our
fix. No word on who Saigon is trying to get to
on the label side, but its really getting dark for real MCs on the rap side. A
lot of these fun rappers have their place, but if you are some sort of spitter whew!
GAMES MOTHER CUSSES
OUT SPIDER LOC
Games mother is a real G, G.
STEVIE J THE NEW
I got a letter from Mike J, who is Stevie
Js brother (Im assuming hes telling the truth). He let me know whats good
with his brother marrying Whoopi Goldbergs daughter.
Steve has some other things poppin so we might be seeing
him more now.
It's true, my brother is going to marry Alex. They got engaged
during Christmas. He also had a good meeting with Diddy. He is due to start working with him in March. He is also in the works to head up the newly created urban wear of the skateboard shoe, DC. God Bless,
BEEF DANITY KANE AND
There is a new reported beef coming up. There is a new
interview with Miss Jones (aka Jonesy)
and they apparently expressed their discontent over Keyshia
Cole. Just listen to this and tell me what you think about it.
BLUEPRINT 3 OR EURO GANGSTER?
I could be wrong or just WAY clueless so help me work this
out. Jay-Z has a new song called Aint I and hes a
Timbaland-produced joint. Now, DJ Clues drops have
fueled the rumors that Jay-Z is now looking to do a third installment of the
Blueprint series. Will that come to fruition? I dont know. Maybe it will also
include that Cant Knock The Hustle remix. Anyway,
from what I understand, there is nothing new about this, but certain clearances
werent met to make the deadline for American Gangster. Now, there is the Euro
Gangster and that just means American Gangster was released in Europe with a bonus track called Aint
Then is Jay-Z dissing? On Aint I, he has a few lines that suggest he is talking to
people like Beans and the always vocal Peedi Crakk.
"I took a pay cut
to become a exec/ So the next motherf***er can earn his paycheck/ And even though these n---as talk greasy 'bout me/ Ask these n***as how they gonna eat
WOW BOWS FIGHT WAS WITH ANOTHER RAPPER?
I dont know if anybody else picked this nugget up about Wow
Bow, but I heard that his lil Cleveland scuffle was regarding a rapper
named Epik. Apparently, Epic dissed
Wow to the Bow. Why? I dont know. Thats what rappers do they diss each other and idiots like myself
write about it. Anyway, I think Epik was attending
the concert and he and Wow to thegot into a
confrontation. Nobody was hurt, lets be clear andif you are at a Chris Brown/Wow to the Bow concert, its
not really going to get but so gullified.
Nevertheless thats that and thats it.
EPIK SUING THE GAME?
Oh, more on this Epik guy. Hes
not actually suing The Game but it involves Jayceon.
From somebody close to the situation, Epik is
reportedly suing JT Tha Bigga
Figga. Seems like Epik had a song with The Game from way back in the day,
during the Bay era and JT allegedly go ahold of the
song. Allegedly, Epiks song turned into Get Ya Money Right on the new JT/Game album. They are taking
action legally. There you have it. One rapper two rumors.
DIDDY SHOWS OFF THE
My girl Marvelous
Mo did some legwork and hit me
with some of the sights and sounds at a talent showcase for Diddys
babes Cheri Dennis and new signee Janelle Monae:
I attended the BadBoy Roster performance @ spotlight live this past
Tuesday. So Cheri Dennis is on stage and she is working her ass off. Diddy is standing on the couch and he's into her performance but the crowd...not so much. Everyone was quiet and let her perform, but the attentiveness of the crowd wasn't so hot. I
can't call what it was...her voice was on point. * shrugs*
So as the evening goes
on, most of the crowd starts to get impatient and keeps talking about Janelle Monae and when is she coming on. The Bad Boy Street Team did a great job posting Cheri Dennis's poster and flyers all over the bar, bathroom, and the venue. That doesn't compare to the amount of people who voluntarily sought out Janelle Monae signs and were
holding it up chanting her name.
So finally Diddy introduces her as a new signee
to BadBoy and for us to check her out. Her drummer and guitarist came out in white souljah boyish glasses, one of them had a Moe style'd wig on as well. So she comes out and is just a big fat POW to the audience. Everyone pays attention, everyone is curious about this chick if they never heard of her before. Diddy is dancing hard on the couch. Janelle Monae is doing the mean dances...and has the entire venue screaming "heeeyyyy hoooooo heyyyy hooo" while she gets her boogie on. She does a slow ballad and boy did that song
showcase her vocal range.
I have to say she was
the best performance the entire night. Hands down. I have a feeling Cheri feels a way about Janelle Monae because the first thing most people thought of after Janelle left the stage was "uh oh..someones future might not be too bright." Hell, most of the people in the venue left after Janelle preformed. She should have headlined the showcase to be
honest with you.
conclusion, Janelle > Cheri. (No bus throwing)
note: there is no reason for Cheri to feel bad. Shes really a dope a** singer and entertainer. She was at the AllHipHop Week celebration two years ago and she killed it. Again, that was two years ago. She needs a serious boost and perhaps this new energy named Janelle is just what
the Diddy ordered. Holla.)
Check out this lesbian rap group AHH interviewed. They already have a song with Pharrell...I'm not mad at them. Better than that Caushion dude.
I might not be able to have a sidekick in the way I wanted
to. Seems like my superiors are looking for something that wasnt
represented on the page when I posted them. I might have to figure out a
different way if this doesnt work.
I think one of the illseed kickers
got something wrong about Beanie and Gillie. I think I was old info based on
what a lot of people told me.
Lil Kim going to G-Unit? Ill believe it when I see it. Thats

Oh yeah, Blakkween told me that

50 Cent has told Ciara that she

My boy Jye hit me up with some
rumors. See them below:
CRASH - word on the skreet...(been in the south too long) is that Don Cheadle is gonna be producing a TV
show based on the movie "Crash". So far I'm hearing that Starz is onboard to show 13 episodes starting in august and
Don Cheadle is going to be executive producer for the
DEADED? - Can you believe the Montel Williams show has been on for 13 years? I stopped
watching it around the time he divorced his wife. What's that all about she wasn't bad on the eyes. CBS is going to give fans a
years worth of "Best Of Montel"
shows since no new episodes are being filmed. (illseed: is this a part of the writers strike or is
SHOUT OUT TO WESLEY
I swear Blade was going to jail, but lo and behold, the AP
sent the headline:
Action star Wesley
Snipes was found not guilty of federal tax-fraud and conspiracy charges Friday,
but was convicted on three misdemeanor counts of failing to file a tax return.
YAY! He was facing over a decade and a half in jail and now it
is three years. You know, Wesley as Blade was listed as one of my Top
SIGNS THE WORLD IS
COMING TO AN END
Here is your Sign,
compliments of Blakkween and Examiner.com.
A woman accused of
leaving eight children with little food and no money while she traveled to Africa to marry a man she met on the Internet has been arrested. Shanell Monique Mosley, 33, was met by authorities as she got off an Air France jet Monday at George Bush Intercontinental Airport, and charged with child endangerment and child
abandonment for leaving the children in squalid conditions.
When she left for Nigeria on
December 31, Mosley told her 15 year-old daughter she would return in a month. Mosleys children are ages 1, 7, 8, 9, 15 and 16, Jordan said. The other two children found in the home were 3 and 4 year-olds the family cared for on behalf of a single father who worked, Jordan
The 9 year-old son
told authorities he and the baby ate a still-frozen pizza for breakfast the morning they were discovered home alone. There were no diapers, baby food or
formula for the infant, no sheets on beds and fruit was rotting in a basket.
One word: SMH.
Obama vs. Clinton, and now Toni Morrison vs. Maya
Maya Angelou on Hillary:
"I know what kind of president Hillary Clinton will be
because I know who she is. Hillary Clinton has always been a strong woman and a passionate protector
(Hillary is protecting her own family from the Lewd-inskys of the world!)
Toni Morrison directly
to Barack Obama:
"In addition to keen intelligence, integrity and a rare authenticity, you exhibit something that has nothing to do with age, experience, race or gender and something I don't see in other candidates. That something is a creative imagination which coupled with brilliance equals wisdom. It is too bad if we associate it only with gray hair and old age. Wisdom is a gift; you can't train for it, inherit it, learn it in a class, or earn it in the workplace -
that access can foster the acquisition of knowledge, but not wisdom."
Illseed on Barack Obama:
I formally endorse the movement for Barack
Obama! This country is more than two families running
the nation! This is the time for fresh faces, new leadership and change for a
whole nation! OBAMA 2008 THE INSPIRATION!
Fat Joe disses 50 Cent and his water:
And they hustle yay not Vitamin
water, Fat cause Im so rich, Rich cause Im so hood" (Thanks Amar)
Shawty Lo's pay per play on radio...:I was paying for radio everywhere. Once the song
caught, other stations and everything started picking up, and thats when the label- they seen the BDS spins start going up- thats when they
stepped in and put they radio folks on it. And now its crazy.(Illseed Note: About time somebody was honest! Now the question is WHO was being paid!?!)
I just wanted to post this Kanye
West video for Cant Tell Me Nothing Isnt that titled poor English? Yeah,
well we love it anyway. At any rate, I dedicate this to Lil
Andre (Was you sayin something?). You know who you
are and you cant tell me nothing. If I can move through
the rumors, I can drive off of fumes, homey. You are a bug on my windshield. (I
love this song and its not all about new..) SMH.
TOMORROW, WE LOVE YOU!
They keep us talking, but if we stop talking about them then they should worry!
