EMINEM – WE MADE YOU

Eminem’s back with new single ‘We Made You’, which is obviously geared towards his mainstream audience.  It’s the same old Em, attacking ‘celebs’ of the moment… yeah heard it seen it all before. It’s just all a bit tired. Your thoughts please…..

‘THIS IS JIM JONES’ DOCUMENTARY PREVIEW – JAY-Z VS DAMON DASH

Interesting……… Poor old Brukkers Dash. He still hasn’t gotten over the Roc-A-Fella split. And look at former Roc-A-Fella part owner Kareem ‘Biggs’ Burke [mark: 2.49].  When they were riding high on a crest of a wave he refused to speak/grant interviews.  But since being shoved in to obscurity he has suddenly found his voice. I had the misfortune of meeting Kareem once. WHAT a dick head! The man behaved and walked around as if his s**t didn’t stink! Anyway,  Dash is the ‘brains’ behind this documentary. But from what I hear it isn’t really about []

UK RAPPER BASHY ASSAULTED?

I have a feeling that this is just one big joke. I mean what rapper in this day and age would admit to being beat down and then pose for pictures, showing off his bruised and cut face? The majority would rather eat dirt then admit to something like this happening. Anyway apparently UK rapper Bashy has been brutally assaulted and has posted the picture below on his blog. This looks like the work of a skilled make-up artist. Allhiphop reports that Bashy is furious and is out to get revenge for the beating he []

*HUGE SIGH* Where to begin…………. Rapper Plies is about to release a documentary (I guess you could call it that) entitled Goonette (smh), and this is the trailer. All I am going to say is ‘PLEASE just watch’. *HUGE SIGH* Your thoughts please……

JIM JONES/KERI HILSON – FIRST WEEK SALES

Rapper Jim Jones’ latest album Pray IV Reign (EI/Columbia/Sony) has entered the Billboard album chart at No.9 and sold 43,000 (first week sales). Keri Hilson’s debut album In a Perfect World went in at No. 4 and sold 94,000 (first weeks sales). Jim sold more when he was just signed solely to an independent label. It hurts me to say this but to be brutally honest I think his album will be out of the top 10 come next week. I think Bruk Pocket Dash cursed Jim’s latest offering by saying []

DAMON DASH BLAMES MONEY WOES ON BEING GENEROUS

Damon ‘Bruk Pocket’ Dash has revealed to Billboard.com that blames his financial downfall on being overly generous. Brukkers says,  “My mistake was watching everyone else’s careers and not watching mine. After being able to settle my wife’s company, I was able to start doing other things. My first approach was the music business and getting with Jim Jones… I spent the last six months doing research, trying to figure out how to use all my resources to blow this out (make his album []
