Raglin Daisy Lowe, Noel Ashman and Damon ‘bruk pocket’ Dash According to WireImage, several nights ago Damon Dash and Noel Ashman (never heard of the man) hosted a party for non entity Daisy Lowe in New York City. Is this what it’s come to Dame??? Hanging out and hosting birthday parties for the likes of Daisy Lowe? Well…. I guess if it helps to maintain your ‘baller’ lifestyle and helps to keep one foot in the heady world of entertainment….. For those who are […]
Estelle attended Marquee’s 5th Annivesary party last night ( December 18th) in New York City. The boots and jeans are fine. But whose idea was it to wear a shiny black puffa jacket (circa 98) with a belt around the waste? I’ve chosen to ignore the new hairstyle……. Photographs: WireImage/Nunez
I’m sorry but does he really deserve those 8 nominations???? Oh but wait! What am I saying? The single ‘Lollypop’ was an absolute classic! And ‘The Carter III’ an absolute masterpiece! It put ‘Ready To Die’ in the shade……. …..When will this sick love affair with Lil Wayne end????? Click here to view full nominations list.

Who convinced you John… Who convinced you? Was it your stylist? Was it Kanye? Was it Common? Or was it Estelle? Tell me! Enquiring minds want to know!
Last night (November 12th) Jim Jones made his theatrical debut in the play The Hip Hop Monologues ‘Inside The Life And Mind Of Jim Jones’. The production also featured tracks from his forthcoming album ‘Pray For Reign’, which will drop early next year. From what I understand both he and Damon ‘bruk pocket’ Dash came up with this unique concept. Bruk Pocket who is desperate to become relevant again is now Jim’s manager/business partner. Any way I’ve said this before and will say it again, Denzel Washington needs to […]
I am sitting here watching the awards ceremony right now. So far….. Mel B and Rev Run are doing a decent job of hosting the ceremony. They have good chemistry. John Legend opened the show. His performance was surprisingly weak and he was failing to hit the high notes. Estelle won Best UK Female. Congratulations! But her dress looked like it was designed by Tina Knowles and she has now developed an annoying transatlantic twang. Leona Lewis won Best Album (‘Spirit’). She wasn’t there to collect her […]

Rapper Jay-Z (real name Shawn Carter) received his Global Leadership Award last night (October 1st) at the ultra plush Waldorf Astoria in New York. He received the award for his visionary leadership of ‘Water For Life’ project, and for his partnership with the United Nations. I remember the ‘Water For Life’ project fronted by Jay. MTV covered the whole event. About a year and a half ago he embarked on a lucrative tour which covered Europe and then Africa. In Africa he ventured in to various poverty stricken regions with his […]
