DAMON DASH’S STRANGE NEW VENTURE – THE HIPPIE ART COLLECTIVE

  We all know that after riding on the crest of a wave for a number of years (boasting and often humiliating people in public) former music mogul Damon Dash finally crashed and burned after he cut all ties with Jay-Z back in 2004. However this recently published article in the New York Observer caught my attention today. Dame might be still struggling financially but he has a number of projects on the go, including the critically acclaimed Blak Roc project, and also seems to have lost his mind (as well as weight) in []

U2, JAY-Z AND SWIZZ BEATZ RECORD SONG FOR HAITI

I just love it when major artists from different genres come together and produce a song within a matter of minutes to raise money for charity… Via BBC News U2, Jay-Z and producer Swizz Beatz have recorded a song together to raise money for victims of the Haiti earthquake. U2’s guitarist The Edge told Irish radio station 2FM the band “wrote a song, finished and recorded” last week after being contacted about the idea. The Edge, Bono and Jay-Z, along with Rihanna, are due to appear in []

QUOTE OF THE DAY: JAY-Z (I AM NOT A DEVIL WORSHIPPER)

“I don’t know where it started. I don’t know where it came from. I really think it’s really silly. For the record, I of course believe in God, but I believe in one God. If people must know my religious beliefs, I believe in one God. I don’t believe in religion. I don’t believe in Christians or Muslims. I think all that separates people. I think it’s one God. I think it’s all the same God, and I don’t believe in Hell. []

VIDEO: JAY-Z – ‘ON TO THE NEXT ONE’ (FT SWIZZ BEATZ)

Taken from the album Blue Print 3, the ‘mighty J-Hova’ drops the new video for On To The Next One, produced by Swizz Beatz. Oh and look the video is released just as a new decade begins! A genius move Jay! For some strange reason this track reminds me of Snoop’s Drop It Like It’s Hot. Yeah we get it Jay! You’re a very rich man, you have President Obama on speed dial and you roll with the men who pull all the strings! Good for you!!! Happy New Year!!! Your []

JAY-Z’S MANAGER: DO NOT REFER TO JAY-Z AS A ‘RAPPER’, HE IS AN ICON!

Today I visited the The Voice Online  website and came across one of the funniest quote’s ever via Jasmine’s Juice column. Jasmine disclosed that Jay-Z’s manager always scolds her when she refers to his client as being a rapper.   According to Jay’s manager/camp, the RAPPER is NOT a rapper.  “He’s an icon on a level with Bono and the rest”. I spat out my ginger beer when I first read this. If Jay’s manager had said that to me I would have laughed out loud and then followed that up with ” You obviously smoke crack. Get out []

Cheryl Cole is the “nations sweetheart” a “national treasure”. She can do no wrong!!! US stars like Jay-Z and Will I.AM should do their research first before jumping on the Cheryl Cole bandwagon! If this story is true then I wholeheartedly agree with fellow blogger Marvin Sparks who said today “Jay’s on some wasteman vibe”. People here have short memories but not me! Cheryl’s flawless L’Oreal fake mask will slip again!
