Grammy Award-winning musician, Wyclef Jean was in Atlanta recently promoting the release of his mixtape EP, Wyclef Jean AKA Toussaint St Jean From The Hut To The Projects To The Mansion, a collaboration with DJ Drama.
Toussaint St. Jean, the title character of the new CD, is a persona suggested to Wyclef by his friend and collaborator rapper T.I. and is loosely based on an 18th-century Haitian revolutionary hero.
Wyclef and Drama hit up Criminal Records in Little Five Points where they performed during a free concert and gave away $50 gift cards through a venture with Western Union. The pair also appeared on Good Day Atlanta, where Wyclef spoke about his humanitarian efforts and performed a song off the EP.
During the performance Jean threw in a few adlibs telling the media to “leave Tiger alone” and congratulating Mayoral candidate Kasim Reed.

After yesterday’s Grammy announcements, singer/songwriter/producer Terius “The-Dream” Nash hit up his Twitter account in a self-professed “bitching” session. In his rant, Nash addressed feeling snubbed by the fact that he didn’t get nominated for best album of 2009, although he is nominated in Song of the Year and Best R&B Song categories, thanks to Beyonce’s “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” which he wrote with Thaddis Harrell, Beyonce and Christopher “Tricky” Stewart.

Pleasure P has finally spoken up about those recent child molestation allegations. Due to those rumors, P made it all the way to Number 1 in the twitter trending topic, as everyone put in their 2 cents on the story, even I:
There’s more to be revealed about this Pleasure P situation. That twitter page is suspect but the docs arent. Dec 3rd
I question the validity of the page. Even an atty’s assistant would know 2 remove the names of the victim Dec 3rd
I still don’t know for certain if those allegations are true or false but some of it doesn’t add up. P’s NOT registered as a sex offender in Florida, the date on the paperwork and alleged age at the time of the incident are off, his name (Marcus Cooper) is pretty common and the timing is suspect since it’s Grammy season….but then add in the fact that at least one of his former bandmates co-signed the chick who released what she said was documented proof and Pretty Ricky’s statement on the situation and I’m still scratching my head in wonder… I’m still willing to give him the benefit of the doubt though.

Shawty Lo dropped his “Fright Night” mixtape on halloween and I still haven’t listened to it, but I got a new video in my inbox last night. Deejays, Drama, Scream, & Whoo Kid compiled 16 new tracks from Mr. Dunn Dunn It All, which features appearances from Gucci Mane, Busta Rhymes, Ludacris, The Dream, Mya, Bun B, Rick Ross, and more. Grab the tracklisting and download link by clicking here.
The new video is for a song, entitled “Birds,” which is not about peacocks and canaries but you probably already know that. Lo has stuck with the standard “Bankhead” [aka Donald Lee Hollowell Parkway] theme of rappin bout that “white girl” and as I always say, if it aint broke… *sigh*
At the end of the video Lo sends a heartfelt goodbye to his old home of Bowen Homes Projects, which should be demolished any day now. View the video below (STRONG LANGUAGE): Continue Reading…
