Photograph: WireImage/B. 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….

VIDEO: JIM JONES THEATRICAL DEBUT – THE HIP HOP MONOLOGUES ‘INSIDE THE LIFE AND MIND OF JIM JONES’

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 []

PICS/LIVE RUN DOWN: MOBO AWARDS 2008 (WEMBLEY ARENA – LONDON)

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.

JAY-Z RECEIVES GLOBAL LEADERSHIP AWARD

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 []
