UPDATE: JAY-Z: SET TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM – ‘THE BLUEPRINT 3’

Yes that’s right. He still refuses to leave the rap game a lone. He still wants to drop albums. He still feels like he’s got something to prove. What’s left for Jay to say? READ UPDATE: According to a representative Jay will NOT be releasing a new album. Now this has become a pattern with Jay.  He gets his cronies to leak information (e.g. stepping down as Def Jam President), causes a stir, then promptly denies the stories. Then weeks/months down the line instructs his publicist to release a statement informing []

NEW UK ARTIST: DAVID JORDAN – IS HE BRITAIN’S ANSWER TO JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE?

This morning I came across new “British singing sensation” David Jordan on early morning breakfast show, GMTV. Presenter, Andrew Castle, introduced David as being “Britain’s answer to Justin Timberlake” and my response to that was ‘whatever Andrew!!!’. If any thing he would probably just be the poor man’s Justin Timberlake, just like Mystique were the poor man’s  Destiny’s Child and Billie was the poor man’s Britney Spears.  But I stopped what I was doing and watched David’s performance….. Now as I watched – CRINGING, because at one point during an incredibly  ‘camp’ performance, David insisted on dropping the odd, slightly revised Michael []

QUOTES OF THE DAY: FAT JOE

   Rapper Fat Joe speaks to Complex Magazine….. “As a Puerto Rican rapper, have you ever been criticized for using the N Word? No absolutely not. Because blacks and Latinos anywhere you go in any hood, any ghetto, we’re right beside each other, and with each other all the time especially in New York City.

TOO BLACK FOR THE CAMERA!

Which reality-show clogged network had to change its casting procedures after a racist internal policy was leaked? Producers had an informal ban on considering cast members who were “too black.” They claimed it was because darker skin tones were hard to pick up on camera. (Source NY Post)

WTF!!!!! OF THE DAY: SOULJAH BOY – ‘CRANK DAT’ THE REAL MEANING BEHIND THOSE LYRICS…..

   A friend forwarded this email on to me today and I am disgusted! Read below…. “I wanted to pass this information on, I didn’t know if anyone else was as behind on things as I was. Thanks to Tom Joyner’s show this morning with Kirk Franklin I was enlightened. Kirk Franklin said he did not let his children listen to the song Souljah boy because of the words and the meaning of Superman. With that information I needed to find out exactly []
