Hip-Hop Rumors: Timbaland Says Sorry To Jay? Nas Turns Down Rae & Jay?
All content within this section is pure rumor and generally have no factual info outside of what the streets have whispered in our ear. Read on.
THE DAILY TWO SENSE
I watched the Jay-Z concert from the comforts of my home. Great show. How cool was it that both Jay and Jordan were recognized on the same day for their greatness? DOPE. Anyway, I had to chill yesterday, but here to give you a lil something to hold you down until Monday for the rumors.
Got some goodies. Check em out.
TIMBALAND SAYS SORRY!
Timbaland finally comes forward to say sorry about the leaked tracks from Jay-Zs Blueprint:
Jay-Z said: Bleeks my guy so hes super protective, so hes hurt. I think they hacked his account. I called (Timbaland) and said, Hey man, whats going on over there, whats happening? The first thing he said was, I dont have the songs. Then he thought about it for a day and the next day he called and apologized for it. Thats all I wanted to hear. They were all his songs, so obviously someone in his camp leaked the songs.
NICKI MINAJ EXPOSURE?
Is Nicki Minaj signed by somebody else? Some people out of Greensboro, NC are charging that Nicki Minaj is actually an artist on their roster. She recently signed to Young Money and is now down with Lil Wayne and the family over there. But, these dudes are claiming that then Nicki got down South from New York, she signed to another company, but the company didn't represent for her once she did actually sign. Apparently, these dudes signed her and helped her with some money issues but nothing came out of it. I wonder if there is any fact in this or if its trash? The name of t he label is Dirty Money Records.
THE JAY-Z DECEPTION?
Hip-Hop has a long, long and storied history with conspiracy theories surrounding secret societies, the occult and other such entities. Groups like Mobb Deep, Killarmy and a number of others address the Illuminati at length in their lyrics. This person deals with suggesting that mega rich rappers like Jay are party to, not only these covert organizations, but even more nefarious allies as well. WHAT!? What do you think? Is this just some well-timed BS that some crackpot decided to spew out or an unspoken truth?
Q-TIP TALKS ABOUT THE KAMAAL ALBUM!
IS 50 CENT TUPAC TO DR. DRE?
Check this out. Remember when Pac got out of jail and hit the Row? Pac recorded "California Love with Dr. Dre soon after. In an interview, Pac said that Dre was just sitting on "California Love," and wasn't planning on releasing it anytime soon. So Pac said "yo Dre, give it to me, let's mash out some hits NOW."
Maybe 50 is feeling the same way regarding production?

SIGNS THE WORLD IS COMING TO AN END
WOW. There are a few times in this world where you are going to have a chance to do something where you really just ruin your life. For Aimee Sword, that time is now. This chick is 35 and has done the dumbest, most insane thing I have ever seen. Aimee gave away her son for adoption over 10 years ago. She decides to track the now-teenager on the internet. She finds him and rapes him. That's right. She found her son and rapped him. The police don't know if HE knew that it was his biological mother putting her lady parts on him. They also say this may very well be the boys first sexual encounter. EW! Aimee hails from a town right outside of Detroit. She has been charged with three charges of criminal sexual conduct for the alleged rape.On top of it all, she allegedly stated that Lil Kim was her inspiration. SMH.
EPIC FAIL OF THE DAY
My homeboy Tim hit me up with this one. This is the wildest man ever. Ohio police had the opportunity to arrested the dumbest person ever. A suspect in a robbery was arrested after he came back to the scene of the crime and ASKED THE VICTIM OUT FOR A DATE. This dude is one big time fool. Stephfon Bennett of Columbus, OH robbed a COUPLE (yes, the girl was taken) and this 20 year old nut came back two hours later to ask another man's wife on a date. Bennett was one of three men that robbed this house. The girl who he hit on recognized him and had a relative call 911 on him. He was arrested at the house. He remains in jail.
EPIC WIN OF THE DAY
Teacher slaps student - For The WIN! This isn't new, but it is as real as it gets.
