T.I. and Jay-Z - Watch What You Say
|NahRight has the new T.I. with Jay track, the track actually comes from HiphopDX and has the HiphopDX drops in it. I share the opinion that many seem to have of this, 'Jay hasn't sounded this good since....' maybe Sean is really going out of his way to impress Rihanna. There is some talk that Jay is going at Wayne on this track, and maybe Game a little. What do you guys think?|

Faith Community of Saint Sabina Thinks Lil Wayne and Others Are Trash
|(thanks to Trac for the picture)|
Taken from the Saint Sabina web site:
Saint Sabina puts up billboards targeting negative musicAccording to church spokesman Vince Clark, the rappers targeted by the include 50 Cent and G-Unit, Nelly, Ludacris, Fat Joe, Lil Wayne, Twista Snoop Dogg and “all negative rappers.” I would have thought a church in Chicago would have at least over looked Twista. If anyone can get a picture please let me know.

Lil' Wayne Has Been Busy
Often times while listening to Lil' Wayne, I just want to stop and tell everyone to listen to him. My jaw hit the floor when he dropped the Eric Bieniemy (who is from the NO) line. At this point someone needs to put out a coffee table book with Lil Wayne one-liners so they can be closer examined.
If you have been away from the internet the last couple of days you have missed quite a bit from Dwayne. All the 'Carter 3' tracks that leaked a few weeks ago (such as "La, La" and "Dyin'") can all be heard on the "Carter 3 Sessions"-that is old news. This week "1000 Degreez" and "Love Me or Hate Me" leaked (which will more than likely appear on the new 'WEEZYAVELI' mixtape) have reached the internet. Wayne mentioned in an interview this week that he will be gathering up all the leaked tracks and come out with a mixtape called 'The Leak'. 'Carter 3' isn't even supposed to come out till early 2008.
Not only has Wayne been pumping out plenty of original material, but he also appears on the " Party Like A Rockstar" remix and a "Prostitute" remix with Trina ( listen to at The Fader ). Oh, and there is also The Cool Kids track .
Somewhere in all of this Weezy has recorded a mixtape with Game and 'I Can't Feel My Face' with Juelz. That has to come out one of these days, right?
In the coming months, Wayne will be featured on lots of guest spots (that is what he wanted to do in '07 anyway). Look for Wayne on the new T.I. record on a track called "Raw", on Kayne's new album 'Graduation' and the Zeke album to name a few. In the new issue of Scratch Magazine Wayne says "when you're hot it doesn't matter who calls: Whitney Houston, Yung Joc, anybody." Could this mean Wayne and Whitney are up to something? I am also hearing rumors that Wayne will have a song on the new Madden and the Simpsons movie soundtrack.
So, when did Lil' Wayne enter the next level? Was it 'Lil Weezyana' or was it ' Drought 3'?
By the time you finish reading this, I'm sure Lil Wayne recorded and leaked a few more tracks.

Hurricane Chris - A Bay Bay
According to Hurricane Chris, "A Bay Bay" has its genesis in the namesake of the Ratchet movement's cornerstone DJ, Hollyhood Bay Bay, who DJ's at a club called KoKo Pellisin Shreveport, Louisiana. Whenever the DJ would come in the club the crowd would start chanting "hey Bay Bay, hey Bay Bay." After a while the crowd would do the chant whenever the club got ratchet regardless of who was on the wheels of steel.
"That became so catchy that I changed it from somebody's name to a slang 'A Bay Bay'," says Hurricane Chris. "Now it's a word, it means fa sho."
Does this put the nail in the coffin of the whole "Hip Hop is Dead" idea? Or are blogs going to be attracted to this? There is discussion of this over at Miss Info's blog, what do you guys think?

Jim Jones Issues Statement Regard Stack Bundles
|Posted on Jimmy's Myspace|
Where do we begin? The Dipset/ByrdGang family is deeply saddened by our loss. Not only did we lose a member but we lost a brother and a friend. Rayquon Elliot a.k.a Stack Bundles was a joy to be around, charming, very intelligent, compassionate and concerned about the upliftment and enrichment of his community and the people in it. Unfortunately his goals and aspirations were cut short by the hands of dream stealers. We can not stress enough that a young star's light was put out before he had a chance to shine in front of the world. We would like this to be a lesson to the rap game...too many of our talented artist are losing the battle of life before their voices have a chance to be heard. Something must change...

Rihanna Says Jay-Z Screens Her Dates
|Guys looking to date Rihanna have to go through a screening process..|
He's very protective. Jay has my best interests in mind. If it's a good guy I know Jay won't shut him down. But if he's not, Jay will be like, 'No, no, no.'Isn't that a tad strange? Well, it wouldn't be weird if Jay didn't have the 'hottest girl in the game wearing his chain'.

Enrique Iglesias + Lil Wayne = Guitar Solo
|Make sure you grab/read the new issue of Scratch Magazine. Here is a little bit about Lil Wayne and a collaboration with Ebrique Iglesias. The Iglesias stuff alone is something else, but it also involves Wayne and that guitar playing of his.|
You've been playing the guitar for a little time now. Any chance we might hear a Lil Wayne guitar solo some time soon?
I've already done it I'm featured on the new Enrique Iglesias single, "Push Up On It." I played the guitar on that song. I also played on my artist Currency the Hot Sptter;s first song, "Staring at the World." So I've already recored and laid the guitar down [on tracks]. I'm on tour right now and I've played the guitar at every show, so I'm good. So the question isn't, "Am I gonna start puttin' the guitar in music?" I've already done it. Enrique Iglesias, homie. Holla at ya boy!
Ebrique Iglesias doesn't seem like your typical running mate. How'd you link up with him?
'Cause I'm cold, my nigga! That's how we hooked up. When you cold, everybody gon' hook up with you. When your good at what you do, it dont matter if it;s Whitney Houston, it don't matter if it's Yung Joc, it don't matter if it's Lil Bow Wow to Enrique Iglesias. It's gon' happen if your good. If you good they gon' call you. Nah, but real talk, shout out my man Steve Morals---that's one of the producers who worked on my album and he did the beat for that song and he recommended for me to be on there.

R. Kelly - Double Up (Review)
Buy 'Double Up' from itunes
When you are dealing with a dude that makes you sign a confidentiality agreement to attend his record release party, you are dealing with a serious dude. R.Kelly travels in his own orbit and exists in a world somewhere around Phil Spector, Kool Keith, and Howard Hughes. Try and keep up. Mike Jackon is too obvious a comparison. The main difference between Kells, or Kellz or whatever he is today, is that he has clearly lived with and loved women. That separates him from most of the other R&B chart toppers who sing about woman, but don't sound like they know women. Most of the competition sound like they are haven't every really been with a woman. They sound like they are singing about cars they haven't driven or guns they haven't shot. Well Kells has driven all the cars and his experience is his authenticity. The ups, the downs, Kells feels it and puts it out there. To me the standout moment is "Real Talk". This is song that all real men can relate to. Who hasn't been there? And as far as the rushed delivery, is there a chorus? Who cares? "What they eat don't make us shit". Real talk.
Want R.Kelly as a midwife? Well you can come close on "Havin a Baby". Kells is constantly contradictory and conflicted like 2 other great lovers of women 2 Pac and ODB. Think about it. Ever wonder what his phone message sounds like? Check "Leave Your Name". You wish you did it like this I don't think that any of the guest stars really push it to the next level and I can definitely ride out the rest of '07 without this whole hip hop discovers the rock star life trend. Kells drops one of a kind jams whether they are stories or novelty tracks and after all this time you know what you are in for and you either already bought it or can't stand it. At the end of the day, the songs are almost irrelevant. It is the trials and tribulations of R.Kelly are truly compelling and that's what keeps us coming back. For instance the most amazing and creepy thing in here is the "To my kids" thank yous on the tray card. WTF? Daddy is proud of you for "not crying when and being a big boy when they trapped you in the closet"??? Is that a coded message or parenting via thanks list???

50 Cent - Rap City (6/1/07)
As OnSmash puts it "Starts off with the wackest In The Booth in history..."
Friday, June 01, 2007
Real Life "Stan" Steals Kim Mathers' Cell Phone
Kyle Spratt, from Windsor, Ontario jacked Kim Mathers' phone from a Windsor bingo hall, where he worked, while she was outside smoking. Spratt then called Eminem on her phone asking him to listen to his demo track. Spratt didn't appreciate Eminem using a fake voice in an effort to avoid Spratt and took action by recording a song about it. Eminem must have phoned the police on Spratt because shortly after posting the song "Slim Sellout" on his myspace the Detroit Police were involved. The song contains samples from conversations Spratt had with the Police and Eminem.
There are a few things to learn here:
1) Kim Mathers now hangs out at Bingo Halls
2) Opening for Obie Trice doesn't mean that Eminem will listen to your music (see myspace photos)
3) Stan's are very real.
There is also a whole mess of a story here in which Spratt texted back and forth with Kim telling her that he was going to post pictures all over of her family.
The song was removed from Spratt's page, but you can hear "Slim Sellout" right here.
Can you imagine how excited Spratt must have been when he realized Kim was at his bingo hall.
