Mid Week Things

The word is that Ghostface will not be appearing on the new Wu-Tang album '8 Diagrams' I have heard multiple sources report this, and all site the RZA as their source. I'm sure this dampens the excitement for many. I wonder if Ghost will be the only original member out.

BBC Radio 1 DJ Tim Westwood has heard a new 50 Cent track off 'Before I Self Destruct' that features Jay-Z and is produced by Dr. Dre. Westwood says the song is incredible and the best thing he has heard since Ice Cube's "Today Was A Good Day". HHNLive adds that Jay-Z shouts out at the entire G-Unit crew at the start of the track and even adds a "GGGGG-Unit"

For those wondering what Benzino has been up to recently, you don't have to wonder any more. The former co-owner of The Source has been video taping himself making some real raw moves. This video is really NSFW.

Those more curious what former Russian pop group T.A.T.U has been doing will find more enjoyment out of looking at these pictures from the Russian GQ than that Benzino video.

I was watching BET yesterday and I hadn't realized how much of a hit MIMS track "This Is Why I'm Hot" has become. It is the first single off the album 'Music Is My Savior', which is due in stores April 3rd. For those that have missed out, here is a stream for the single "This Is Why I'm Hot" and here is a link to the video.

Finally, I repeat make sure you check out the mix from DJ Joe Cruse below

Rich Boy - Throw Some D's feat. Polow Da Don (Live on 106 and Park)

Rich Boy's album comes March 13th.

Watching this video you really get an idea how small Rich Boy is. The girls really go wild when he takes his jacket off, the ladies must really like small guys.

RealTalkNY was at the Rich Boy listening station last night with pictures and a video.

Sorry for the second video update today, I figured since they are both quality it would slide.

Jim Jones and Dipset Update

Things have been quiet on the Jim Jones front, so I did some looking around and have a bit of an update as to what to expect from Capo in the first half of 07.

Jimmy posted the 2 Million Dollar bail for Max B and is currently working on a new mixtape with Max B called 'Out On Bail With A Story To Tell'.

Jimmy is also working on his first featured role in a movie titled 'Thug Passion'. This is what Jimmy had to say about the role:
It’s a little different role I’m playing. I’m playing a lover-boy type. It’s a little hot and steamy. I’m having sex all over the place. It’ll be a different look for the ladies. No guns involved, just my charm. It’s my first experience, I’m learning it. It’s not the regular type of role they give young black men such as myself. They give us the gangster role, the drug-dealer role. That’s why I took it: because it’s a stretch.
When done with the movie Jimmy is going out on tour (March). The tour is set to include Juelz, Lil Wayne and Birdman. There are 30 dates planned for the tour (dates not announced yet). Jim also plans on releasing a compilation along with a DVD for the tour.

As far as other Diplomats news goes, JR Writer has 'Writers Block 4' on the way (February 13th) , 'More Than Music Vol.2' and the long awaited 'Diplomats Vol.6'.

Kay Slay,Rich Boy Remix, Jay - Z and More

The above image is Kay Slay's attempt to maybe fool the RIAA, or at least throw them a curve ball. It also is the worst cover for a mixtape I have ever seen.

My friend Loren sent me the Rich Boy (Feat Lil' Jon, Andre 3000, Jim Jones, Murphy Lee, & The Game) - Throw Some D's (Remix) last night and you can grab it over at Che Sing the Cool right now.

Go to XXL to listen to the Curren$y ft. Lil Wayne “Dead Presidents Freestyle”. I think Curren$y might be the best weed carrier in the game right now. I am really looking forward to his record 'Music To Fly To".

Did anyone catch the Jay-Z's stalker on Dr. Phil yesterday? I will post a video as soon as I find it.

Jay-Z's Nets get $400M from Ex-Slave-Trade Co. Jigga what?

Rich Boy Cover Art and Info on the Fabolous Album

It took seeing this cover to remember how excited I am about this record dropping. If you haven't read it make sure you check out the interview I did with Rich Boy back in December.

I saw Rizoh also posted up this cover today over at the Rap Up.

Rich Boy will be preforming live on 106 and Park tomorrow (Jan 30th)

I am skeptical about everything I read about a new Fabolous album, but apparently Fabolous's album 'From Nothin To Something' will be dropping on March 27th. The first single "Return Of The Hustle" and features Swizz Beatz and produced by Just Blaze". Listen this track on his myspace page.

Juelz Santana and Lil Wayne - Black Republicans

Juelz Santana and Lil Wayne - Black Republican (YSI)/(Z-Share)

This is a radio rip from the Mr.C radio show. Despite it being a radio rip it is decent quality.

Didn't Jay-Z say something on the Kayne "Diamonds" Remix like "How could you falter when you're the rock of Gibraltar"? Is is it a coincidence that Juelz says "The rock of Gibraltar has now fallen" on this track?

Now does this track mean that we might actually get 'I Can't Feel My Face' this year?

powered by ODEO

There are a bunch of real-life rappers and stand-up comedians such as Too $hort and Eddie Griffin involved in the movie.

Does this kind of movie support or serve as an pathway for kids to think it is acceptable to throw parties like this one, or this one? I have been reading a pretty interesting debate on this recently and I wanted to see what some people here thought.

Interview with Lil B from The Pack

The Pack just released a 7 song EP called 'Skateboards 2 Scrapers ' through Up All Night/Jive Records. The single "Vans" was covered in all corners of the internet and raised controversy after being edited for MTV after their refusal to air the video due to the product placement. Regardless of support the video received, "Vans" was listed as the number 5 song of the year by Rolling Stone. "I'm Shining"(which in my opinion is the best song on the EP) has just been released as the next single.

After some initial confusion about the name of this web site I was able to settle in for an interview with Lil B from The Pack (Lil Uno, Young L, and Young $tunna stepped out). I explained where I was from and it some how resulted in Lil B thinking I had some purple haze.

The most surprising thing in the interview was that Lil B didn't know about the DJ Drama/Donald Cannon stuff. I was also taken back by Lil B's answer to who he would like to work with if he could work with anyone.

JJ: What was your reaction to name change from 'The Wolfpack' to 'The Pack'?
Lil B: It's all good there were a lot of groups out there with the name and we had to distinguish ourselves

JJ: You know about the wrestlers right
Lil B: Oh yea Kevin Nash and those dudes

JJ:You didn't name yourselves after them did you?
Lil B: Nahh

JJ: What producers are you looking for for the LP
Lil B: Young L is gonna do the whole thing, Lil Jon, we are hoping to get and Jazzie Pha

JJ: What guests would you want to get if you could get anyone?
Lil B: Weebie, Jeezy, Twista

JJ: What do you think of Lil Wayne?
Lil B:Wayne is the man, we are gonna get his boy Curren$y on something

JJ: What do you think about the DJ Drama/Cannnon stuff?
Lil B: Oh we hopefully can get a gangsta grillz

JJ:Those dudes are in big trouble, they might go to jail
Lil B: What?

JJ: Yea, bit RIAA/CIA swat team raid for bootlegging. They don't know what they do and how vital what they do is to rap music
Lil B:They went to jail? that is some deep shit. For sure.

JJ: I heard some rumors about some distaste for Pharrell, what do you have to say about that?
Lil B: Nah, we down with Pharrell. We are good friends.

JJ: What do you think of Moss in Oakland?
Lil B: I don't know man, I don't know much about that.

JJ: Do you follow Bay Area sports?
Lil B: I got a few teams I like, but I'm not really into football.

JJ: What sports do you watch?
Lil B: I don't really watch sports, I stopped a long time ago.

JJ: I was talking to a friend in Paris and I told him I would be talking to you today and he wanted me to let you know how much they are feeling hyphy and the pack out there
Lil B:Tell him whats up and we are going to try to rock it out there. We would love to get get out to Paris.

JJ:Thanks for your time and best of luck to you guys.
Lil B: Anytime man, keep me updated and tell me whats good.


Jim Jones Dissing Joe Budden

Joe might as well add a permanent "S" to Joe's name at this point.

XXL recently ran a story with their top 10 most anticipated albums of 2007. I can't disagree with putting Lil Wayne at number 1. They also provide some new information on the 'The Carter 3' apparently the first single will be a song called "La La"

1. Lil Wayne

Album Title: Tha Carter 3
Release: Late Second Quarter
Beats: Timbaland,, Scott Storch and Swizz Beats
Features: Twista, Junior Reid and Sizzla
First Single: La La

The other nine most anticipated albums of 2007 are new records by Cassidy, Papoose, Fabolous, Lil Jon, Raekwon, Three 6 Mafia, Chamillionaire, Young Buck and T.I.

Speaking of Raekwon, listen to his first single "My Corner" over at NahRight

Word is that Young Buck's new album isn't going to be called "Buck the World" anymore but "Get Bucked".

There is also a rumor floating around that Mystikal is out of prison. I guess he was released on January 11th and he didn't tell anyone. All eyes on Mystikal. (via HHNLive)

In case you didn't see this earlier in the week, here is an apparent list of Gay Bands via a web site called Love God's Way. Ghostface makes the list via his collab with NeYo which isn't so obvious, but Judas Priest and Le Tigre come on. I think they put DMX and Eminem on there just to piss them off, have they even listed to any DMX or Eminem records over at Love God's Way. Oh and Lil Wayne did make the list....

Juelz Santana's Valentine's Day Ideas

Valentine's Day is just around the corner and I received a friendly reminder of this filled with gift suggestions today from Mr. Bandanna from Santana's Town. Here are some ideas along with a short explanation for why your this would make your lady happy. This list goes to show two things about Juelz and his gift giving 1)He really wants to sell stuff via his site or 2)He has absolutely no idea what would make a good gift.

Diplomats Embroidered Thongs (pictured above) - These are of top quality material and the finest embroidery art making the perfect gift to your lady. Regular price $19.99, currently on sale at $13.99 (for a limited time). If I got these for my girlfriend and she actually wore them would I brag about this to my friends? I don't think so. That saying she is still my girlfriend after getting her a Dipset thong.

Genuine Sterling Silver Chains - These are only $130 bucks. I don't have to think what my valentine's reaction would be if I surprised her with one of these. I'm pretty sure it would have something to do with the word "dumped"

New Ballin Shirts By Skorpleo on the other hand would make a great gift, I'm sure this would make the lady really happy. Here is a XXXL white t-shirt, happy Valentine's Day (I guess they come in 'small', so this could work).

Juelz Santana & Diplomats Airbrushed Shirts by Paul Labelle, this actually seems like the most sensible gift to give your Valentine from Santana's Town. If given in the correct context it might not actually end the same way giving the Dipset chain would.

In conclusion, do not buy a gift from Santana's Town for your Valentine unless you don't really care about her and you really want the gift when it gets thrown back in your face.

For those that are not familiar with Disco D, he has produced tracks for Trick Daddy ("I Pop") , 50 Cent ("Ski Mask Way") and Lil’ Scrappy (“Right Away”). For more information on his work visit his discography on his official website.

Regardless of if they are tight jeans or not, it is a Donald Trump tactic to be so focused on one aspect of the ether. Tru life better enjoy it while he can because his kufi is going to get smacked all the way across the Atlantic for this (the myspace hack was nothing). My hat goes off to Jay who sure too the high road here and sent his little rookie to go after the Dips. Mission accomplished Jay, people are now going to pay attention to Tru Life. All eyes on Tru.

Sean Carter's weed carrier Tru Life just released a mixtape called 'Tru York' hosted by J-Love and Tru Life seems to be going to go at the Dips pretty hard on this.

Listen to the "Intro" track at his myspace, it features Jigga going off on Jimmy. You can't say that Jimmy only used the feud as promotions and deny that Jigga is doing the same thing with Tru Life.

The Superficial has the real reason why Justin Timberlake and Cameron Diaz broke up, big surprise that it has to do with Scarlett Johansson.

While on the topic of Timberlake, have you heard the new version of his new single "What Goes Around...Comes Around"? Also, what do you know about his new movie 'Black Snake Moan'? I really can't miss a movie that has Christina Ricci half-naked and chained to a radiator.

Different Kitchen has some new Stephen Marley things. If you don't know, his new album is called "Mind Control" and is out March 20th.

Lil Wayne - Broken Jaw

According to Mary Bowlin (J&M Entertainment/Gillie The Kid's Publicist), Lil' Wayne's jaw was broken at a tour stop this past weekend. Apparently Lil Wayne became involved in a heated argument with a fellow entourage member, it all ended with the argument coming to blows and Lil Wayne receiving a broken jaw. I'm not sure why Gillie The Kid's Publicist has anything to say about this unless she is strictly trying to get involved because it is such a bad look for Wayne to get beaten down by someone in his entourage.

While on the topic of Lil Wayne, here are a couple of things you should check out. If you haven't yet downloaded 'Lil Weezyana' from the Young Money web site, do it now. It is a free mixtape being offered by Young Money and Weezy F B has never sounded so good.

Donald Trump's Letter to Rosie

Trump had wrote this letter to Rosie today.
Dear Rosie,

I hope you had a wonderful vacation with your wife -- you needed the rest.

An article in today's New York Post, indicates that you blew up at Barbara Walter for being a 'liar.' Actually, I don't blame you, but in fact she lied to both of us! After your maniacal and foolish rant against me two weeks ago, Barbara called me from her vacation (I did not call her) in order to apologize for your behavior. She had heard that I was going to retaliate against you and tried to talk me out of it. She very much wanted me to go on the show as soon as she got back so that she could 'patch things up' (I said no). To be exact, she said that 'working with her is like living in hell' and, more pointedly, 'Donald never get into the mud with pigs' and, 'don't worry, she won't be here for long.' Barbara knows exactly what she told me over the phone and she has to live with it. Perhaps that's why her initial statement was so mild!

In another incident, when I saw her eating at Le Cirque about two months ago and asked how 'Rosie was doing,' 'she sarcastically rolled her eyes and said 'Donald, do you have to ruin my meal.'

In any event, you have a good reason to be angry. Please give my warmest regards to Kelly!

Sincerely, Donald J. Trump


I was surprised that you let your spat with Barbara get into the newspapers, but, as I have always said and as you proved with Rosie, the magazine, you are very self destructive. You must work on this for your own good!


Rosie vs Barbara

The New York Post is reporting that a confrontation went down on Monday in the makeup room between Barbara Walters and Rosie O'Donnell spotted via Perez.

Here is full detail of the fight according to Page Six:

- The fight started around 8:30 a.m. when Walters walked into the hair and makeup room at ABC studios and tried to hug O'Donnell.
- According to spies, O'Donnell recoiled from Walters' touch and yelled, "You kept me in the newspapers this whole time!"
- Both View producer Bill Geddie and Walters tried to calm O'Donnell. Walters told her, "I did everything I could to squash the story" - prompting Rosie to scream, "You didn't call me for 10 goddamn days, and you didn't tell me what you were going to say on television!"
- During her vacation, Walters issued a carefully worded statement saying, "I'm sorry there is friction between Donald and Rosie. That said, I do not regret for one moment my choice to hire Rosie O'Donnell as the moderator of The View. "
- After O'Donnell's outburst at Walters yesterday, Geddie jumped in and told her, "You've crossed the line." O'Donnell retorted, "Cameras are now outside of my house where my wife and kids are." She turned to Walters and said, "You went all around this and never called [Trump] a liar. You never said, 'Donald is lying.' You never called him a liar."
- When Walters tried to defend herself, O'Donnell erupted, "Are you looking me in the face and denying you didn't tell him you didn't say this? You're a fucking liar."

In case you missed it last night on WWE there was a fake Trump vs a fake Rosie, as soon as I find a link to a clip of this I will put it up.

I don't mean to pimp out any of the ads on this site, I try to keep them as out of site as possible, but how slick is the new Fresh Good Friday Hat? In case you don't know Lids has a new limited edition hat the first Friday of every month. They are only available for a month and then they are gone (also not available in stores). Anyway, I'm loving this Moonman hat.

Friday Things

So, it turns out my tipster might have been on to something when a few weeks ago it was predicted that Justin Timberlake would start dating Scarlett Johansson. Perez is now reporting it, so it must be true.

Mike Jones - The American Dream

I left 'The American Dream' off the most anticipated releases of the year list and I don't know how I could have. "Mr. Jones" might be the hottest track I have heard so far this year. The word is that 'The American Dream' is going to be released on February 14.

Producers on the album are said to be Cool and Dre, Scott Storch, amongst others. I'm told guests include Paul Wall, Bun B, Pimp C, Scarface, Trae, Diddy, T-Pain, Z-Ro, and Jim Jones. I can only hope that the Jimmy Jones/Mike Jones track is called something like "Keeping up with the Joneses".

Here are some audio streams of the first single from 'The American Dream'

On a completely unrelated note, in honor of their 25th anniversary Thrasher has posted their first twelve issues online in their entirety. Issue five contains the important guide to constructing your very own skateboard ramp and you can't ignore the first issue on indoor skateboarding.

Donald Trump vs Rosie O' Donnell Round 2

On the view this morning Barbra Walters finally spoke up about Trump's claims that Barbra regrets having Rosie on the view:
Donald Trump [claimed] that I am not happy with my decision to bring Rosie O'Donnell to this table. Nothing could be further from the truth. I have never regretted, nor do I now, the hiring of Rosie O'Donnell. She has brought a new vitality to the show, and the ratings prove it.
Meanwhile Trump continues the ether and goes straight for Barbra now calling her a liar.

Everyone gets a kick out of this right?

Justin Timberlake and Cameron Diaz have broken up

My tipster let me know about this break up earlier in the week. This information first came when it was reported that Scarlett Johansson was to be in the new video for "What Goes Around (Comes Around)" (new JT single) and now I have learned that the split happened in early/mid December...

Remember in Lost in Translation when Scarlett Johansson's character gets all jealous of the character that so obviously is Cameron Diaz? It all comes full circle.

My tipster also suggested that we will soon hear that JT is with Scarlett.

Michael Jackson and to work on comback album sums it up perfectly with this quote from entertainment:
He could go anywhere. I think we have a real opportunity to do something here. It's either gonna be really big or nobody's gonna care. Ain't no middle ground on this one.
For those who don't already know, is working with Michael Jackson on his comeback album. Chris Brown is listed as a confirmed rumor to collaborate on the record. Other names being rumored are Akon, DJ Whoo Kid and Usher. has had a pretty big year and I agree with this article from XXL's Bryon Crawford about being "Hip-Hop's new go-to guy"

Regardless, the new MJ record will be interesting...I hope can deal with Michael Jackson writing songs while he is sitting up in a tree.

Talib Kweli and Madlib - Liberation

I rarely get into this side of rap, but I endorse the principle behind what Talib is doing here. Talib Kweli and producer Madlib have released their nine-song collaboration titled 'Liberation'. This release is available as a free download and with cover art via This concept succeeds and people that would have passed on this release will no doubt listen and might even really like it.

Talib Kweli isn't the only person who supports downloads, the creators of South Park have stated that they support episode downloading. I watched some of Season 8 yesterday, I really suggest the 'AWESOM-O' Episode.

Discobelle has a Rich Boy remix of 'Throw Some D's" with Rick Ross and The Game. This will be enough to hold me over until the Jim Jones verse gets added.
