WHERES CAMRON PART 300
Yesterday there was a Camron sighting in New York! Cam was spotted leaving the EMI Music (Virgin, Capitol Records) in New York on 5th Avenue and 20th street. In Manhattan. From what I understand, Cam was visiting Virgin Records, which is on the third floor of the building. No pictures were taken and nobody I know really got to chat with Cam. Questions are raised at this point. Is he planning a move to Virgin?
Shout out to White Pete! Youre a rebel with a cause!
WHY LIL WAYNE HAD A BABY?
Lil Wayne has a beautiful daughter and thats something to behold. In the new issue of VIBE, he reveals how he came to have his daughter at such a young age 15.
A year after Rabbit was gone, I was on tour like crazy with Cash Money, and my momma said she was bored, alone, and scared in the house by herself. She was like, Why dont you just have a baby with somebody? Just tell the little girls mom Ima take care of the baby, dont worry about that. I was like, I dont have nobody I like like that! She was like, Just find somebody! You dont like Toya? I was like, Alright, I like her then. Toya was 14 when she got pregnant, and I was 15 asking 14-year-olds. Toyas the only person that agreed outta all the ones I asked. I said that my momma wants a child. And they was like, Thats your mommas problem! So Toya was like, Shiiit, when we due, boo?
I think they could have just got mom a puppy.
IS LL COOLING OFF TO THE JAY-Z BATTLE?
You know, LL Cool J IS HIP-HOP. I will explain that in a minute. But, let us start with the gossip. Well, this seems to be mostly about fact and how LL plans to deal with his situation at Def Jam. He recently told New York mag writer Jada Yuan that he wasnt really looking for a drag-out beef with Jay-Z or Def Jam.
He said: We need to meet and figure it out. Its tough. Lets be real. You know, they have an artist (Jay-Z) running a label full of artists. Okay? Thats like Calvin Klein running a fashion label and Varvatos and everyone else is underneath him. What kind of sense does that make? This hierarchy? It doesnt work for me.
Im going to approach [the situation / meeting] from a positive, optimistic viewpoint. Hopefully it will work.
What is interesting is LLs next CD will be called Exit 13: The Icon Versus the Wolf Pack. It is a concept CD where LL battles the very rappers he put on in the game. I want him to battle the older guy lmao!
WAS COMMON DISSING 50 CENT OR WHAT?
You remember when it looked like Common was about to go to war with 50 Cent? Well, he never did. If you heard a line like, with twelve monkeys on stage, it's hard to see who's a gorilla, you was better as a drug dealer you kind of think hes talking about 50 Cent. AllHipHop.com got to the root of the line and Common explained:
AllHipHop.com: Speaking of love we know Common is all about peace and love, but what did you mean when you said that gorilla line on Finding Forever? Why you starting stuff?
Common: Nah, people keep thinking I'm going at somebody [50 Cent!] and I'm not really even going at nobody specifically. It's just that I see a lot of rappers and they always got a lot of dudes on stage and you don't get to see them perform, because you don't know who is who. I just gave the example using monkeys, because I was just making it real raw and sayin it the way I would say it
AllHipHop.com: Oh ok, so that wasn't some subliminal G-Unit diss?
Common: No, I'm a live and direct dude, you know, if I got something against somebody I'm probably gonna say their name. Any time I had a battle you'd know who I was coming at.
AllHipHop.com: Speaking of battle rap, would you battle rap now, because I know a lot of established rappers who aren't tryin to battle because they don't want to get played by some young hungry up and comer?
Common: Yeah, if I felt the urge. I was a battle rapper, but you gotta be smart with it
AllHipHop.com: Not even on some beef stuff but who would you like to battle?
Common: Kanye (laughs)
AllHipHop.com: That would be a good one.
Common: Yeah, and because you know it would be friendly and it's still love, but we could go because that dude got a lot of good raps in him.
I don't know if I believe Common! Shout out to Octavia Bostick for the interview that I have stolen for my own purposes.
HILLARY CLINTON MIGHT NOT BE THE BEST PRESIDENT!
One of the most important facets of being a president is keeping the nations secrets. Well, this might be where Hillary Clinton falls short. Russell Simmons just turned 50 (actually he turns 5-0 tomorrow) and all his friends and family had a surprise party for him. On Saturday night, Russ was at the Black Caucus thing I couldnt afford to go to and Hillary hollered at Russ like, Sorry I wont be able to make your party. Russ had no clue what she was talking about, assuming the potential president was talking about another random party. So, being clueless turned out to be an asset and the party went off without a hitch. The show offered performances by LL Cool J, Musiq and others so much fun being filthy rich.Here is Mr. Simmons and his lovely daughters.
ELEPHANT MAN HES SO STRONG
Shout out to SLUG fam from Toronto! The homies told me that Elephant Man did perform in Canada with Nas and eluded his detractors. Also, Ele brought a huge chick on stage that I heard was no less than 250 pounds. They tried to dance. But, when she was riding up on him he lost his footing and they fell, knocking over the DJ's equipment. I heard the whole crowd was in stitches at what they saw. And, you wont get any elephant jokes out of me. I like bigger girls.
KEYSHIA COLE IS COLD
Keyshia Cole heated people up with this interview she did with 92Q Jamz in Baltimore. Click here to listen. She really clashed with the DJ on the mic, but they came back and cleaned it up. People are really talking about it and so should you. LOL. Key Key just had a bad day!
TIMBALAND CONTINUES HIS RUN FOR THE THRONE
I heard that not only is he working with Nelly Furtado, Bjork, Justin, Celine Dion and others, but Timbaland is now working with Duran Duran on some stuff. But, there is nothing new about this. AHH chatted with Tim-collaborator Danjahandz and he broke it down proper.
"The actual process of making the album [with Duran Duran] was cool," Danjahandz told AllHipHop.com. "We just went in there as musicians, I think that's what was beneficial for me, playing those instruments, came into play. Because I had to become a musician, not a producer a beat maker, I had to become a musician and write songs. It was just an easy thing for me, the dudes were real open for me and where I was taking them. It was just a cool experience.
Back in the day, Duran Duran was the sure shot. Here is something they did that I always felt was very Hip-Hop.
ROXANNE SHANTE IS 1000% MORE GANGSTA THAN ANY RAPPER
See this. (Shes more of a pimp as well.)
Rumor has it, Kanyes next CD will be called Masters Degree. I think it should be called First Job, Pay Off Loans.
There is a silly rumor going around that Alicia Keys suffered a mild stroke. Silly rumors.
I heard Beanie Sigel recently signed a pair of female rappers named Paperdoll and Nina Ross. I cant verify though.
I heard Mya recently had an interview where she dissed 50 Cent by stating that his new CD, Curtis, was a coaster on a table to her. If you dont know, Mya was in the middle of the 50 / Game beef for a second.
Eva Longoria's got a sex tape on the internet they say! I saw part on TV, but there isnt much of anything online yet. Well see.
Halle Berrys biracial baby with Gabriel Aubry has been threatened by heathens! She has beefed up security.
My boy Allen told me that Hollywood is planning to do a new version of The Karate Kid with Will Smiths son.
This night be old to you, but its new to me. I heard that Shaqs wife bought that trainer a $650K condo in Miami! What the devil is her problem?! And how big is the trainer? I wouldnt want Shaq mad at me. LOL.
Keith Murray and Francis Ford Coppola [of Godfather fame] have something in common. Coppoloa got his laptop stolen from thieves in Buenos Aires. In it was the script for his upcoming film Tetro.Britney lost the kids. That girl is a MESS.
Eve aint coming out til 2008. Why is it so hard for artists to get any traction in this climate? Same thing for David Banner and his The Greatest Story Ever Told.
DAVID BANNER IN TROUBLE?
Now, when David Banner was at AHHs Social Lounge, he was very passionate and articulate. In fact, the people that attended really felt him and what he was saying. A few days later, after AHH Week, Banner goes before Congress to speak regarding controversial lyrics, misogyny and a bunch of other things that they feel Hip-Hop promotes. I heard that Universal Records, the parent company to SRC, wasnt very pleased at Banner being on the panel. What isnt clear is what actually upset them. I heard the higher-ups werent happy about WHAT he said more than him actually being involved.
Here is a bit of Banner and Master P going at it at the Social Lounge.
AHH RUN DOWN!
I miss Scott Sterling from a Boogie Down Productions from a fan point of view. Ever ask yourself What if Scott La Rock Had Lived? Click here to read the piece of fiction.
Check out this really cool interview with Soulja Boy. I know, people hate on the kid, but this was really cool. It is like a lesson in "Creating A Buzz 101."
Cool & Dre! Last time we got them, one of them was in the hospital after a car accident or something...so we got "him."
Young Jeezy talks about the Pimp C situation. Very interesting.
Want to see what JR Rotem's take on Britney Spears, click here. You all might recall, he dated the pop-wreck briefly. That girl needs Jesus.

I have to admit, I didnt think this was all that funny, but a lot of other people did.
