WHERE ARE YOU YEEZY?
People are wondering where Kanye is. Well, from what I understand, Kanye is not over in India taking a religious sabbatical as reported. From what I understand, Kanye is right in Illinois and making music with a rapper he’s been affiliated with for a long time. That rapper’s name is ______. From what I was told by a super credible source is that Kanye was “around the way” very recently and is working with this rapper again, because they are close friends. I was told not to divulge the name of the rapper, because it could cause problems for somebody. But just understand that the rapper is 1) from Chicago, 2) not Common and 3) Helped Kamye score a huge hit. Anyway, Kanye just strolled in and people were shocked. Good to see him laying low.
WYCLEF DISSED KANYE?
I got a line from my homey Phil from Kenya and he checked in with me on the African Hip-Hop Scene. But he also hit me up with some rumors from the Motherland. He told me that ‘Clef said that somebody should have beaten Kanye up for what he did at the video music awards.
Also, after the African Music Awards, I heard that a women that was or claimed to be Akon’s baby moms was not allowed to see him at the hotel where he stayed. In fact, I heard security kicked her out.
Phil also told me that Jay-Z’s Blueprint 3 is the hottest CD in Africa right now. He even said that they don’t appreciate the previous “attacks” that T-Pain has levied against Jay-Z. I heard they said and felt similar things about The Game.
50 CENT NOT WORKING WITH THE GAME
The Game and Dr. Dre recently let their personal issues come to a close. The rumor then was that the West Coast producer would then get the two guys back on a stong.
“You shouldn’t really hold your breath. If Dre decides to work with him, that’s Dre’s prerogative.”
50 Cent recently said that to MTV and somebody picked up the audio and sent it over. So, that basically dashes that on the rocks below. I think with all the G-Unity going around this may have been true. Guess not.
DMX CAUSES A RUCKUS
DMX got into a big thingy over the weekend in Colorado. Well, he got to a concert late and they didn’t want him to go on. DMX wanted to go on and they threatened him. Whatever. Here are some other details I heard. I heard the security there tried to pepper spray DMX about a foot from his eyeball. LOL! The way my homey Irv Da Phenom described it was crazy. He sald the cops – key stone cops – were slamming people and being abusive. DMX finally got to a mic and had all the people engage in a prayer. After that, everybody chilled out and stuff.
BEYONCE’S LABEL IS COMING
Clearly, Beyonce is on a path of world domination.
One of the main parts of the industry that B has not taken on is the area of the record label. I’m hearing that’s all soon to change in a few. Yes. My peoples sent me a lil note that said that Beyonce is going to soon get going on her label after much of the dusk has settled with touring and her recent album stuff, she is going to start on a label. There was no timetable given, but she did suggest that she’d be willing to start a “family” in about 5 years.
MASE DEBOS PUFFY INTO LETTING HIM GO!
This was weird. Mase gets at Diddy at the radio station in Atlanta and basically has release papers in his hand. He wanted his “freedom” and it looks like he got it. Check it out.
There was something sad about that right there.
Looks like a lot of Lil Wayne’s music is insecure and leaking.
New songs from T-Wayne (T-Pain and Lil Wayne) have now leaked and the labels are trying to stop it.
Also, there is likely a threat that Drake’s project is going to leak EARLY. Apparently, there is somebody that claims to have Drake’s album and intends to leak it because he doesn’t like Drake.
This same person claims to have Lil Wayne’s rock album and will leak it too. I know this…
Andre Dirrell got robbed on Saturday and Jermain Taylor got KTFO. Read about it here.
EPIC FAIL OF THE DAY
Goodness. This is a fail beyond belief. Three punks decide to assault a man’s fiancée and do they get a knuckle sandwich deluxe – right in the middle of Times Square! Sheeeeet!
Dude straight beat up all three dudes at once and then some!
SIGNS THE WORLD IS COMING TO AND END
This one is awesomely tragic. A mother has been arrested for shooting her sons – one 5 years old and the other 1 year old. The one that’s dead is the one that is 5 and the one that is alive is the one that is one. The one-year old child is now in the fight of his young life. The woman called 911 and admitted to the crime. When the police arrived, she basically was waving a gun around wildly and asked that the police shoot her. They didn’t. they just took her gun and too her to jail. The one year old was shot several times and its now in the hospital. Tragic.
Here are the rumors that Chance did over the weekend but I didn’t update. Here you go:
NO LOVE FOR WENDY??
Wendy Williams is apparently having a hard time booking guests for her show. After years of trashing celebrities over the air a lot of them aren’t eager to support her move to TV. Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Diddy, LL Cool J, Tyler Perry and Usher have all turned her down. I never really watched the show but I heard it was OK and she’s been very cool with the site for a few years now. I’m diggin Moniques show though … just wish she’d use her inside voice a little more.
…to Drake, Wale and Kid Cudi for collectively being named GQ’s Man Of The Year
MC BALLOON BOY

called the cops. They even dabble in Hip Hop. Check out this video

GOOD CALL MADGE
Madonna was going
to call her last album “Black Madonna” and even shot the cover in black
face with red lipstick and white eyes. However, she figured people
wouldn’t “get it” and nixed the idea. Good call if Nas can’t name his
album “N#####” that is definitely NO BUENO.
AMY BREAKS A BOOB
addict/singer Amy Winehouse recently got some breast implants that
brought her from a 32B to a 32D. Well after a performance last week
she was rushed to the hospital because her boobs were “f**king killing
[her]” as she put it. Rumor is one of them broke during the show.
the news of Matthew Knowles’s jump off being pregnant is new, the
actual pregnancy isn’t. She’s six months pregnant and word is Bey’s
pops may have known the whole time and tried to hush her up with a job

of experience and penchant for drama resulted in her getting fired real
It might not have been a cover up though just MK trying to hold his side chick down.IS MONICA A HOME WRECKER???
is working on a comeback but there’s always someone with some dirt to
throw … a woman says she ran into Monica at Saks in NY and while she
was shopping in another section her husband claims Monica approached

off when his wife called to check up on him.
