I know….I know….better late than NEVER! Jay-z hosted a party at the Velvet Room last Sunday for his American Gangster album release. The usual “A” listers were in attendance….Jermaine Dupri, Young Jeezy, DJ Toomp, Usher, Frank Ski (V-103), DJ Trauma (the Superfriends DJs), in addition to Rick Ross and Freeway. I also have to mention Alex Gidewon (AG Entertainment), the man who made it all possible. The only people missing were T.I. and Michael Vick…
Jay-Z’s new CD is on fire! Shout out to one of my favorite people, DJ Toomp, who produced track #11 (Say Hello)! Also check out Jay’s new video for my favorite song (this week) ~ Roc Boys (and the winner is) below:
Sorry I haven’t posted this week…I’m still in mourning for T.I. aka Clifford Harris, Jr. I tried to show my support by going on a hunger strike until he is released (hoping I could lose 10 a few pounds this week), but my will power sucks! Now….I don’t know about you, but the thought of not eating for 6 days does not give you energy and creativity. Anyway, my hunger strike didn’t work….T.I.’s still locked up!
So…back to work I go! Here’s a recap of the events this week:
Last but not least, T.I. appeared in court today on federal gun charges. He pled not guilty and his attorneys have proposed that he be released on a $2.2 million bond and given house arrest. The judge in the case has agreed to consider the proposal and has given his attorneys another week to gather additional information before he rules. It has also been released that T.I. was allegedly in possession 2 and 1/2 pounds of weed on the day of his arrest. What I find terribly odd is that he is accused of admitting to a federal agent that he smoked the weed in preparation for BET Awards. OK…who besides me thinks this is all a bunch of B.S.?? Can you just imagine him sitting on the curb conversing with the feds and saying….”yeah, it’s mine….and I just smoked it”…? Whatever?!?!
“I bet you niggaz think I’m livin it up
Til you see polices laughin as they pickin me up
Went from seeing how many bitches I could fit in the truck
To three hots and a cot, is you kiddin or what?
Fuck how many millions I got, nigga, so what if I’m hot
When I got prices on my head, feds rushin my spot
A million haters want me dead, forced to carry a gat …”
Once again, Bankhead Donald Lee Hollowell Highway was the place to be! I told y’all! Don’t sleep!! T.I., Lil Wayne and Young Jeezy combined their good looks and talent to host a 1920’s Birthday Bash at Club Crucial. Continue Reading…
Jeezy sports a “Free Vick” black tee….but Vick’s not in jail (yet). I give him an “A” for effort. He should have just wore a jersey. Source (C&D)
Whoopi Goldberg officially joined the view today and spoke about the Michael Vick dogfighting case. Goldberg stated that Vick, having grown up in “the rural south” was participating in dogfighting because it is “culturally acceptable” and she likened it to people worshipping cows in India vs. Americans who eat beef….or how cats are food in China. WTF!?! Is she crazy?? Although I can see where she was TRYING to go with this…she failed miserably by making it seem that dogfighting is a “BLACK” sport. View the video below judge for yourself…
