YESTERDAY’S RUMORS!Hip-Hop Rumors: Mariah Carey And Nick Cannon Got Married! Did Scott Storch Give Lil’ Kim The Bentley!Hip-Hop Rumors: Was 50 Cent Robbed In Africa? Ryan Leslie’s Past Comes Back!

I’m not trying to suggest a beef, by any stretch of the hipster’s imagination. I will state that there is a powerful, mighty rumor going around that Common will not feature Kanye on his next album. Why? I don’t know. May I speculate? (The IC & AHH fam says, “Yes you may!”) At the Grammys, Kanye won and made a comment about Common insisting on coming out at the same time as him. As you know, they were both nominated in the same category and ‘Ye won. And to mainstream America, Common is like Kanye’s boy or something, but don’t remember when he wanted to “borrow a dollar.” Anyway, Common, in the aftermath of the Grammys, made a statement about Kanye loving himself. I say all that to say that we shouldn’t expect to see ‘Ye on Common’s CD. And that’s a good thing. Both are 1000% legit artists and Common is a 5-Star Veteran all by himself. Invincible Summer is Com’s eighth solo release and we can expect it in July.

Here is a partial tracklisting for Common’s new album, Invincible Summer:

“Universal Mind Control (U.M.C.)”

“Make My Day” feat. Cee-Lo

“Punch Love”

“What A World” feat. Chester French


“Party S###”


“Runaway” feat. Santogold

AIIIIGHT, HOLLA DEN.THE MARIAH CAREY / NICK CANNON SECTIONGuess who came before Nick Cannon (not Tommy!)? Oh…yeah. Click here!

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon reportedly got married in the Bahamas on the Island of Eluthra early yesterday. Also,

there are reports CONFIRMING that Mariah is sporting the exact same

engagement ring that his previous fiancée Selita Ebanks rocked. But, you know the media. I got from more reliable sources that Cannon Nick actually had the ring designed a $2.5 million ring for Mariah.Keep

it, pimpin’, pimpin! Click here to see a nice photo shoot of Mariah Carey looking delectable.


This might be blasphemy, but when I saw this video of G-Unit getting boo’d and bottled in the UK, I immeditately thought of Martin Luther King, Jr.

“The ultimate test of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and moments of convenience, but where he stands in moments of challenge and moments of controversy.”

Check it out.

That was in 2004 and this is 2008.


Check out a preview of Foxy Brown’s upcoming reality show! Hot diggity Dog! This look really good!

ONE MORE THING…I promise, I am not trying to badger Mr. Scott Storch. But, it would seem that people are trying to prey on his stuff…basically hoping he sells more of his possessions. SMH at these vultures. I kind of hope I don’t get any money like that! ILLSEED’S QUICKIES

I heard Too Short is coming out with a reality show on how to “mack” a chick. I think this is for men, but I think Snoop from “The Wire” could be on as an advisor.

Barbara Walters and Alicia Keys might have something in common – married men! Barbara admitted she had an affair with a married senator named Senator Edward Brooke. He was he first African American Senator elected by popular vote. POWER and women – its like a aphrodisiac. (Thanks Yardseed!)

I am hearing that Omarion might have joined The Inc over there with Lloyd. I have a bone to pick with Irv Gotti though. What the hell did he did to Vanessa Charlton’s career?

50 Cent should be releasing his next solo disc, Before I Self Destruct, this fall, according to Billboard.

Do you believe the rumors that I am getting, that T.I. and Chris Brown might be working on an album together.

Did 50 Cent sign his own baby moms to a book deal? That would truly be Gangsta.

Amy Winehouse is strongly considering a rehab facility in the United States. DO IT!

Hip-Hop is getting healthy! That’s what’s good! You know, AHH has a health section, right? We’re trying to keep Hip-Hop healthy!


Here he is talking about it! David Banner says he lost for a various reasons, including sleep apnea. Click here to read our full story on Sleep Apnea, which afflicted Big Pun and Pimp C.

SHOUT OUT TO DIDDY WITH THE STAR ON HOLLYWOOD’S WALK OF FAME!Lookie here. You can say what you want, but Diddy getting this honor is a win for Hip-Hop! BIG JYE COMES IN WITH THE STRAIGHT JAB!

My homey Jye has been giving me rumors for quite some time and here is what he’s bringing to the “rumor ring” on a Friday.

Big Comeback!!!!

Charli Baltimore recently did an interview from the 40/40 club sporting a new look. Now word is Charli is about to make a strong comeback which is pretty good timing since there’s a female emcee drought going on right now. I heard she just signed back with Murder Inc (Why Charli???) and they’re starting work on her new album. So hopefully this project will materialize for her. Now we need is for Murder Inc’s other female emcee to return to the label and this year will be poppin. [Illseed note: I love C. B-more!]

Struggles of gay rappers:

For those interested, here is an interview with a gay female emcee who is speaking on gays in rap music, and the struggles they have within the business. Hmmmm could your favorite rapper be gay??? Check out Jenro’s interview.

B***h Please!

Time for a crazy rumor… ok so everyone is looking forward to NOTORIOUS the movie about Biggie, and as a result some of black Hollywood’s finest are joining the project to support this important flick. Well the craziest thing I heard was that Lil’ Kim actually wanted Megan Good to play her in the movie and Good wanted $1 million/per day! SMH….Back folks. So far this is the line up: Angela Bassett as Voletta Wallace, Derek Luke as P.Diddy, Anthony Mackie as 2Pac, Jamal Woolard as Biggie, Naturi Naughton as Lil Kim and Antonique Smith as Faith Evans. (Illseed note: they need to let me play Craig Mack! )

Brooklyn’s Finest

Word is my boy Wesley Snipes is gonna be in a new movie called “Brooklyn’s Finest.” This movie is gonna be a star filled flick people like Don Cheadle, Richard Gere, and Ethan Hawke will be in this movie. Keep your eyes open for this and, Wes, don’t pick up the soap.



This goes out to all my people in Angola. His name is Paul G and he’s from Angola. So, I told my people there that I would put him on the site. He’s a singer, but I think his song is hot. There is a rapper named Alashus on there. Akon – watch out!


YO! Yesterday, I put up Ryan Leslie at his geekiest but now I have to make amends. Dude is actually a great producer. Now, you have to see what he did to Lil’ Wayne’s “Lollipop.” Pause for the cause.


Shout out to Joell Oritz, who has recorded “50 Shots (Stream of Consciousness)” I like this. Nuff Respect to Mr. Ortiz. Not only does it respect Sean Bell, but its dope with the Public Enemy track.


Big LeBron and the Cleveland Cavaliers leads the best-of-seven series, 3-2, but the Wizards are hanging right in there. Will Jay-Z and Bron man DeShawn Stevenson pay or will he get the last laugh?! Did you hear Prov, a rapper from DC, diss Jay and Bron on behalf of DeShawn? Click HERE!


They keep us talking, but if we stop talking about them then they should worry!
