Jay-Z hit up the Oprah Winfrey Show today and almost everyone I know, including myself, rushed home to see it. Oprah visisted Jay’s childhood home in the Marcy projects in New York and also followed him around as CEO of Rockafella. What I found most interesting about the show was Oprah & Jay-Z’s discussion about the use of the “N” word in rap songs. As we know, O is not real tolerant of rappers (ask Ludacris) but she allowed Jay-Z to have his say on the matter. In the end, they agreed to disagree with both making valid points on the subject.

Big Boi leaked “For Your Sorrows” last night on Ustream and promised to drop the full version soon. Well soon is today and I’ve got it right here for you! After listening to the entire Sir Lucious Leftfoot: The Son of Chico Dusty last night, I’m anxiously awaiting the day when I can bump it over and over again. But for now, I’m happy to add this song to my “A”pod playlist.

Soulja Boy was spotted boo’d up with video chick Rosa Acosta recently and the net is buzzing that the two may even be engaged! I don’t follow who’s who in video chicks but hopefully this is just a rumor.
SouljaBoy has yet to comment, but he does look pretty content in this last photo.

You’ve probably realized by now that Ciara’s “Mama I Want to Sing” didn’t hit theatres Spring 2008 as planned. The film, based on the hit off-Broadway stage play by Vy Higginsen, was loosely based on the career of Higginsen’s late sister, R&B vocalist Doris Troy, whose big hit was 1963’s ‘Just One Look.’ The musical ran for eight years at Harlem’s Heckscher Theater, making it the longest-running off-Broadway black theater musical in history.
Ciara was chosen to play the vocalist in the film alongside Lynn Whitfield as her mother. Now after several delays and reshoots, the film will finaly make its world premiere as the closing night selection at the 13th Annual Urbanworld Film Festival in New York on september 26th.

Oh Lawd! Killer Mike has done a “Diddy” on us. He’s gone and changed his dayum name! Crazy thing is… he didn’t even call to tell me. I had to read it on the gotdayum net. Needless to say, I’m a bit perturbed, but I ain’t trippin. Mike, who now wants to be known as “MIKE BIGGA” says that it’s something he’s wanted to do for quite some time now and after reading his statement, I can understand and stand by his decision. Mike says:
Big Boi aka Daddy Fat Sacks aka Sir Luscious Leftfoot aka my future ex-husband aka the son of Chico Dusty invited me for a special listening session last night at Stankonia Studios. As I was treated to a musical tour of Twan’s unrealeased cd by candlelight and kush, I felt a familiar affinity to the music. This ain’t just no regular CD y’all! I’ve already got a few favorites. I was sworn to secrecy but there’s quite a few surprises in store and I’m almost positive that Sir Luscious Leftfoot: The Son of Chico Dusty will be an instant classic.
Big Boi cleared up a few rumors last night as well, the first being that he’s signed to Def Jam. He’s not. He says that his album company came back to him with an offer he couldn’t refuse so he’s still Jive and he ain’t going nowhere.
It’s taken some time to complete this album cause classics aren’t created overnight, but from the tracks I heard, it’s well worth the wait. I talked Big Boi into going live last night and we acted a fool on UStream for a while. I dunno if it was the Kush or my company, but Big Boi eventually decided to premiere an ENTIRE song for his fans, LIVE…on air last night! The song, “For Your Sorrows” features George Clinton and Too Short and he got quite a bit of positive feedback. So much so, that he promised to send over the full HQ version in a few days.
So check out our ustream footage from last night below to listen to the world premiere of Big Boi’s “For Your Sorrows” : Continue Reading…
