“Beautiful Girls” buys Iced Out Crayons?

November 23, 2007

I had to post this ridiculously absurd piece of jewelery that Sean Kingston, the “Genius” behind everyones favorite radio hit Beautiful Girls, has been sporting around town. Personally I think he should have bought an iced out McDonalds French Fry box. Now that would have been worth the tens of thousands of dollars I am sure this cost.

Now you know where your ringtone cash goes….  I feel sad inside…


Busta Ryhmes – Step Up (Produced by J Dilla)

November 23, 2007

Busta Rhymes – Step Up (Produced by J Dilla) For More Info and songs Click Here This is off the Busta Rhymes/Mick Boogie Mixtape called Dillagence which is coming out exclusively online on Tuesday. This mixtape will feature only J Dilla beats that were made exclusively for Busta Rhymes. These beats are brand new never heard before which is both awesome and strange. It’s awesome because we will have a whole slew of new Dilla beats. It is strange because Busta Rhymes and J Dilla are certainly an odd couple.Here is what Busta and Mick Boogie had to say about the project:

“When Mick brought this concept to the table, I felt the timing was right. Dilla left so much incredible music behind with me personally,” says Busta Rhymes. “It’s almost like he knew I was a vessel for him, and would be able to continue to champion his movement.”“When I called Busta with this idea, he was so excited,” said Mick Boogie. “One day I woke up and my in-box was flooded with songs and songs of crazy Busta/Dilla material. I’m honored to be a part of this project.”

Once again it is a shame that Dilla’s star continues to rise after his untimely death last year.I think I like the song, but I still think it’s a bit odd. What do you think?

50 Cent sends his condolences to Kanye West

November 22, 2007

50 spoke to the Associated Press yesterday and had this to say about his record sales rival Kanye West.

“That’s really an unfortunate situation and I hope he can work his way through it,” 50 Cent said Tuesday (Nov. 20). “It’s good to see him actually touring: You can work your way back into a comfortable space where you can deal with those situations.”

“I was telling him, ‘You need to go back and do what you need to do,’ and he thought maybe I was a little insensitive,” 50 Cent revealed. “But I can definitely understand how that’s a huge loss, and how that would be, and then (Kanye’s) relationship with his mom had a lot more depth to it than a lot of people’s. He was real close to his mom.”

“He’s a talented artist. I actually sat with him during the creation of Curtis while he was creating his new album,” the rapper told the AP. “I never viewed him as an actual enemy; what I was trying to do is build a competition.”

November 20, 2007

Saigon has had enough. Before even dropping his first album, Saigon has announced that he will no longer rap on mixtapes, albums, or live shows. That’s it he’s done…

Here is what Saigon had to say on his Myspace Blog last night:

“I QUIT…….. You see I got into rap a very very long time ago, I didnt do it to become rich, I didnt do it to become famous, I did it because it was a way for me to vent about the bad things that were happening around me, It was therapy for me so to speak…..

…I dont try to start shit to cause contraversy, its the media, the press and yall who eat off contraversy who start the shit, try to make me look wild or out of control when Im just being who I am. Everybody is like, ‘OMG how is gonna show up to a radio station drunk’, hahaha, Im a rebel, I done showed up to court drunk facing 15 years and yall talking about a radio show..
