Hip-Hop Rumors: Game and Young Buck Mixtape? Jay-Z Disses! DMX Stuck In Bad Deal?
DID 50 CENTS CHAIN GET SNATCHED IN AFRICA?
Based on what I have heard, they really like G-Unit in African. But, I hear one dude broke from the conventional script and did the unthinkable: snatched a chain off 50 Cent. Here is what I heard happened. I heard 50 and the Unit had a show yesterday in Angola, Africa. I heard some dude went on the stage to give him 50 Cent a hug and somebody pushed him away. In the process of getting pushed, the little dude allegedly grabbed the chain and jumped off the stage. Dude hauled his butt outta there and nobody could find him, I hear. This happened in Luanda, Angola legend holds. I heard Tony Yayo was on the prowl, but he came up with nothing. The positive side of things, I heard the show was off the hook for the people that saw it. NICE.
JAY-Z AND BEYONCE: JUST 2 QUICK THINGS.
Sooooo Here is the latest yip-yap on Jay-Z and Beyonce. People are saying that Beyonce and Jay have a secret to tell the world. The first is THEY ARE MARRIED!
I heard the second is to tell the world that Beyonce is PREGNANT!
I heard the announcement may be made in Cali. What do you think? I dont think much. I think they are going to have to say something very soon though. Beyonce has been notably absent from the scene. I think it is high time that Jay take a needed break and be a good daddy to some lucky kid.
NICK AND MARIAH: ENGAGED OR HOAX?
Who knows? I mean, both of these guys are cool, but who cares? I guess I do. Mariah Carey is engaged to Nick Cannon, sources have confirmed to Access Hollywood gossip show. On the flip side, I have heard that this is one nuptial that is nothing but a hoax to get publicity for two megastars. I dont know. Who cares.
DENIAL: YUNG BERG AND BOW WOW FIGHT!
Despite intel that suggests there was something going on, Yung Bergs reps have stated that it just isnt true. Read this:
The rumor about the alleged beef between Yung Berg & Bow Wow is untrue and completely FALSE. The two were in ALT this weekend working on track together which will be featured on Yung Berg's debut album 'Look What You Made Me" in stores August 12th!
Well, I have to say that I am totally convinced that there is no beef since they say these two are working on a song together. I know a couple people that were there and they didnt see anything either. God Bless Em.
DAME DASH THE FATHER RUMORS
I am an admitted fan of Dame Dash. I think he was the brains of the Roc and I think that his pioneering contributions to the rap game (Samantha Ronson or Roc Box anybody?) With that said I have a letter a friend of the mother of Dames son. I guess I could print the letter, but it really has private information in it. I will say that she charges Dame with being a dead beat dad and one that does not take care of Boogie, his son. According to the letter, Linda Williams (baby moms) has complained to child services and has gotten nothing. Lastly, they said they are lobbying to put Dame in jail for this.
Well, thats some serious beef.
On the flip side, I found out that Dame is actually working on a few film with Jim Jones and expects it to hit it big. This is great, I think. Well, well see the movie and then determine if its great. I have already reported (if you want to call it that) that Jim is getting his acting on. If he can score big with this Jim Jones movie, it is expected that it will ease some of the tensions with him and Linda Williams. Somehow, I dont know. In the meantime, I hear they have a formal petition they are going to unleash in the Hip-Hop community for all to sign.
KARL MALONE: DID THE MAIL COME EARLY?
Damn, Karl! Everybody knows Karl The Mailman Malone (NBA star). Well his son is now drafted to the NFLs Buffalo Bills, but something strange has allegedly come out of this. New Buffalo Bills Offensive Tackle draft pick Demetrius Bell (the son) was born to a mother that was a mere 13 years old and the daddy was allegedly Karl Malone. Now, when the baby was born, Karl was a sophomore at Louisiana Tech. Karl got his young girl on - allegedly. Remember the rumors that Karl was trying to get his swerve on with Kobes wife back in the day? SMH!
LIL KIMS FAILED BENTLEY REPO!
This video sucks, but its basically the same one I showed you yesterday. In that vid, you can hear Kims distinct voice cussing the repo man out of her life.
DIDDY AND KIM ARE UNOFFICIALLY BACK!
I hear Diddy is all ready to do the damn thing in Hollywood! YES! The rumor mill is ablaze that he is going to be hand-in-hand with his baby momma with no drama KIM PORTER. She lives in Cali too so that makes sense. They have been seen out and about so its not a biggie. Here is a rundown of what Diddy is going to do in Hollywood when she gets his star on the Walk of Fame (or whatever they call that strip of concrete).
- 10 private jets on standby to whisk his nearest and dearest to a mansion in Beverly Hills.
- Five different custom-made Sean Jean outfits: a tux, a smoking jacket, a top hat and other extremities.
- Luxury French Ciroc vodka and bubbly flown in from NY.
- 300 white lily arrangements.
- Pricey goodie bags including Unforgivable Black perfume.
According to a UK publication Diddy will be joined by Victoria Beckham, Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes, Pharrell Williams, Jamie Foxx, Eva Longoria, Mel B and AllHipHop. (Oh yea. Sorry about what Lady Drama said about you, Didster! That wasnt me.)
RYAN LESLIE BEFORE ALL THE DIAMOND GIRLS!
I put this up like a year ago, but I thought I would reintroduce it since dude is such a baller. Ryan Leslie good geek gone bad. I kid, I kid. He is a chorus of understanding.
Proverbs is the name and DMV is District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia. I only know about Delaware, Maryland and Virginia aka DelMArVa.
I found out the reason why The Game was wearing the white makeup. It's an allusion to the scene in Dead Presidents when they went ape on the cops and just started killing them.
I heard the coveted Obama mixtape has been hit with hiccups because some of the rappers are slow returning their songs. I guess its hard to be positive.
Congrats to Mary J for making the People magazines Top 100 most beautiful people.
Jay-Z reportedly went to the studio 24 hours after getting married. No rest!
I told yall Gary Coleman was going to be on Divorce Court. People tried to tell me he was going to be the JUDGE.
RANDOM QUOTESTerrance Howard talks about people mistaking him for being gay (Source: AllHipHop.com):"I don't mind being considered eccentric, but sometimes within the Hip-Hop or Black community, eccentric is oftentimes associated with being gay or something like that. I'm a hell of an individual."
Gwyneth Paltrow on who is the iller MC Kanye or Jay-Z:
Oooh thats a difficult one, but Im going to have to go with uncle Jay well my kids calls him uncle Jay.
Click here to listen to the new Nas BANGER, called "War Is Necessary." Oh - here is the quote. Nas on the use of the word n****r causing such a fuss (King magazine):
That starts a revolution. It sparks something within the hip-hop community, within the streets, within the people outside the streets. It raises an eyebrow to the situation, you know? Nobody wants to deal with the word n***er, because what comes with the word n***er is a whole history where you show so much injustice, and you show so much that has not been fixed yet. So its a scary thing. But its also uncomfortable when Im dealing with it. Like, no one can tell me what to do. None of the black leaders, none of these motherfuckers, record companies, none of them can tell me what to do. Because you cant stop what I want to do, you understand?
ALICIA KEYS ON LETTERMAN!
Yesterday, I yapped about it and today I have the video. Swizz is ma dude for that one. OK, not really, but I understand.
FAKE GANGSTERS ARENT ALWAYS RAPPERS
Harry Allen, PEs media assassin, unearthed this video of Margaret B. Jones faking the funk on her gang banging past. Remember? She wrote a book of lies and even got on Oprah with it. Peep the fakery.
SIGNS THE WORLD IS COMING TO AND END
If you are a sex offender, you might as well put bumpers on your butt. The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation has decided to put a GPS system inside of every high risk sex offender parolees. This will allow the government to track and monitor sex offenders in the interest of public safety. These people are deemed high risk to re-offend." About 2,500 people are going to be strapped down for the rest of their days. All 9,000 sex offenders in Cali are expected to have these ankle monitoring devices by 2009. They will have those ankle GPSs on their body for the rest of their days at least its not an implant. Im not sure I agree with this. If they are so bad, why dont they just stay the heck in jail?
SIGNS PART TWO
I am sure you all have seen this, but I just couldnt ignore it. A 7 year old stole his grandmothers car and got in all sorts of trouble, including a grand theft auto charge.
THE REV. WRIGHT ISSUE.
I write a lot, about 2,000 3,000 words a day. So, every so often, I crank out my daily boom bang and something gets misinterpreted. I got a long monster email from somebody from Trinity Church in Chicago. I really question that, because the email was profanity laden and full of rage more devilish than Christian. Anyway. I want to clarify that when I said that I was no longer down with Rev. Wright. I AM down with seeing Barack Obama as the next president of the United States of America, even though the political game of America is getting wack. To me, there is a bigger picture here and that involves a unified front. With the latest developments, Im not feeling Rev. Wright. Now, do I have the same feelings about the way he was attacked and basically slandered by the media? SURE. Am I pleased to see him pop up at the most inopportune time? NO. The good Rev. is threatening the whole campaign. Im not down with that. Love and respect to the people of Chicago's Trinity United Church of Christ.

THE TRIUMPHANT RETURN OF BUSTA RHYMES!
