KANYE WEST VICTIM OF HOAX

This morning the news (posted on a fake FOX News website) of rapper Kanye West’s untimely death was the top trending topic on Twitter. But all you Kanye fans out there will be relieved to know that the man is still in fact living and this was just some sick joke. Hours later Kanye’s girlfriend the remarkably talented Amber Rose, took to her Twitter page and expressed her disgust and outrage. She basically went on about it not being funny and standing by []

VIDEO: YO GOTTI FT GUCCI MANE, TRINA AND NICKI MINAJ – 5 STAR CHICK (REMIX)

Up until this point I had successfully avoided listening to the much hyped remix of ‘5 Star Chick’ and the female “rapper” of the moment Nicki Minaj, but I finally gave in today. Curiousity got the better of me. People Stateside seem to be going crazy over this Nicki Minaj, and after listening to her “spit” I am baffled as to why anyone would give her props. Has it really come to this on the female rapper front? Trina refuses to disappear []

UK MUSIC: POUND STERLING – ‘FRESH’

I love it! LOL! [Thanks K] Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?

HIP HOP NEWS FLASH BACK: FOXY BROWN ‘I’M DEAF’ (2005)

In December 2005 rapper Foxy Brown held a press conference and announced to the universe that she was suffering from severe hearing loss. Foxy gave a highly emotional speech flanked by Russell Simmons, his former wife Kimora Lee, Doug E Fresh and some other random people. I’m guessing that Russell was the one who helped to orchestrate this entire production, because old ‘fact finder’ just LOVES to create ‘hype’ and ‘exitement’ by holding pointless press conferences.   I mean for a start who calls a press conference and then announces that they are suffering []
