Listen/Download: The Game - Sound Scan
I don't like a nigga who can't make up his mind. Don't like someone who apologizes, and takes it back. Don't like a name dropper. Don't appreciate someone who can't get off someone else's jock.
The Game's music has been jammin. Say what you will.

UGK - The Game Belongs to ME
powered by ODEO
Whitney by the key
DJ screw by the gallon
The game belong to me
Ok, Janet's album wasn't a huge or normal success. I don't understand why everyone is blaming Jermaine Dupri though. He did the best with what he had. He might look like a little elf but the nigga can't do Majic. Janet aint no Mariah. There is only so much you can do with a person who ACTUALLY can't sing. Janet was great in her day. You loved her for being a sexy, young, great dancer/performer. Well, she's still in shape and she's still a lovely lady, but over time that cute airy voice has turned into the 40 year old voice of a chic who was never a songstress. ("She's not a songstress" -- NY from Flava of Love...but I digress). I really like Janet's video for Excited though. I know it took a lot of Geritol and exercise to get thru that one.
Jermaine Quits As Virgin Executive
I don't think this was necessarily the best decision to make. But J&J are sticking together. Maybe they can be the next (mostly) sober Bobby and Whitney?
Listen/Download: Jay-Z - Lost Ones
I dont think its meant to be, Bey (?)
For she loves her work
more than she does
Hova probably loved my work more than I did she.
Cuz what she prefers
And that's where we
So I have to give her
Even if it hurts.
So Breathe, Mami
You been put on this earth to be all you can be
like the Reserves.
My timin is on me
So I have to allow
time to serve.
The times now for her
In time she'll mature
And maybe we can
Again like we were.
my times too short to share;
And I'd ask her now
But aint fair.
So yeah, she lost one...
From Ring the Alarm to Irreplaceable to, now, Lost Ones...they got some things to say to each another. Loves it.

So this is the controversial album cover? Pale ass doughboy Ice T and his butt implanted
whore wife? I'mma need more from this CD.
Like a single.
According to AllAfrica.com, Jay-Z was like "Fk it" when it came time to discuss conserving water with the VP of Ghana. Was the trip publicity for his new album? A photo op? Was he in over his head and out of his range of expertise? Did he think becoming a humanitarian would be easy when he don't really give a damn?
Beyonce didn't even want the lil African children getting too close to her:
But at the end of the day, the most pressing issue of water conservation that was widely publicized was relegated to the background.
Speaking on United Nations Radio, Jay-Z said, "I'm using my music to educate my folks in Africa about conserving water, since water is a very big issue, I'm using my music to educate my people about the importance of conserving water". [WTF? I see why he's with Beyonce.]
Jay-Z received a lot of goodwill and support from the U.N for his contribution in sensitizing Africa about preserving water; however, reports by the BBC indicated that most people in Africa did not know what Jay-Z's tour was all about.
Other sources close to Charter House told this reporter that the local event organizers had an itinerary for the artiste, but when he got to Ghana, he and his team ignored all the plans that had been made. He disclosed that as part of the programme, Jay-Z was to discuss with the Vice President, Alhaji Aliu Mahama about his water conservation advocacy but he and his team decided to forget about it. ["I got 99 problems, but yo water aint one..."]
A Ghanaian event organizer, Kwame Sarpong said, "some international artistes use Africa's plight to get sponsorship to tour the continent, and they make the money and forget about whatever theme they were supposed to be sensitizing the people about".
Several interviews with music fans and the general public clearly reveal that very little is known to the public about Jay-Z's water project.

Unnecessary song; unnecessary video. Catchy hook though.
Listen to Lil Flip feat. Lyfe Jennings – Ghetto Mindstate
Come on back Flip! This is more like it. It's got that certain something that only Flip can deliver. I am not a huge fan of Lyfe Jennings, but he's growing fast on me; I like his messages.

I like it*. Hate me.
Listen to Jibbs featuring Chamillionaire - "King Kong"
* not really
I am speechless, but this deserves words.
Serena should have hidden from the camera. No need to take a picture in this condition.
Of course Al can't miss a photo op, so we'd expect her to be in a picture gaying it up, but is Serena having a nervous breakdown?
Now, I loved NY. Crazy and unique looking as she is - I loved NY's fire and, well, her craziness. I hear she's going to have her own "Flavorette" type show. I can't wait to see her lording over a group of men. En-ter-tain-ment.
I liked Deelishis. She was calm when necessary, street when necessary, sexy when necessary, nurting when necessary, and then...she sang. So Flave had to pick her. Do I think she really loves him? Hell no. But she did what she had to do! And she did it with her arms, shoulders, and back out in every episode—with pride. Bravo, Detroit, Bravo!
(Gotta love how NY cussed Flave out at the end. It's a shame they couldn't have make up sex after all of that though. Read about NY's new show HERE.)
(Oh yeah! WHO is Deelishus' PAID baby daddy? All that money he's supposed to have - and Deelishus had to tongue Flava Flave to get on???)

I knew it was too good to be true. For 4 years the R'uh has dodged sexual battery charges. Now, when it's finally time for a trial -- no trial. I saw the tape. So I know why the boy is scared. But, he has nothing to worry about; he'll get off. Every since OJ's glove didn't fit, niggas been getting off. Well, except for Mystikal and Shyne.

Jay-Z in Africa
Was there no other traditional attire he could have worn?

"Rappin is the simplest, easiest shit in the world. That aint shit to brag about. That shit aint hard. Cause all you gotta do is write some shit on paper... All I'm doin is writin some shit down I done seen with my own eyes..."
*you MUST watch the video. audio is imperitive to the post.*
If this white boy is really serious—not just trying to sell an image, but actually that dumb—I'm shocked. I thought he might be somewhat of a gimmick. Not 100% gimmick, but about 30%. I knew he was raised with black boys, but he used to be this guy:
SO you can understand why I thought that some of his foolishness was just an attempt to be an authentic white/black boy. I knew he had a real affinity for us, but I believed that deep down inside lived a smart white kid trying to get on. Even got a black wife to get that stamp of approval. (I still respected his hustle.)
But then... I saw this video. Right now I'm convinced that Paul Wall was actually raised by a drunk, black uncle who didn't make it to his 5th grade Graduation.
Only a real, true nigga can be as ignut as I just witnessed. Paul can just about say nigga now. Wish we could see his eyes b/c if he's as crazy as he's portraying himself to be, his words should be a direct result of a day's worth of blunts, syrup, and Hennessy. Anything less is unacceptable.
I been doin this too long, but I'll be damned if I see another chic on your arm!!!
Jay-Z responds to China's Performance Ban
"I look forward to rescheduling my concert date in Shanghai," Jay-Z told AllHipHop.com in a statement. "This world tour has been a life changing experience and it has only been made better by touching the fans that I am seeing for the first time."
That's IT, Jigga?

Kanye and his "girlfriend"
Now, Kanye’s running all over the country promoting Farnsworth Bentley as a r a p p e r. WTF? First, Puff put him on, now Kanye has signed him to a RECORD DEAL. The Umbrella Man needs to stop the madness and just write a book about how to whip a superstar.
See Farnsworth performing at Fashion Rocks below. Pretty boring stunt.

Nice new song by Omarion. I'm not a fan, but I love music. Sounds nice. I just wish it would have lived up to it's beginning.

J. Lo at a charity event. Less really is...less. Keep this up and she'll be looking like Farrah Fawcett in 10 years.

SNOOP FINDS SOME FIRE
Seems Snoop Dogg got ahold of some kill/kill:
I could waste a lot of time and just put out negative music and n***as would do what I say ‘cause I’m Snoop-mothaf**kin’-Dogg. King of this Crippin’, King of whatever the f**k I want to. I could be the king of New York right now if I wanted to be. Who is it, Jay-Z and 50, that’s it? Them my lil’ homeboys. If you wanna keep it real, I could be the King of mothaf**kin’ New York and mash on n***as. But I got my hand out in peace and love because I’m a grown man and I understand that when I make peace with Jay-Z and make peace with 50 and I sincerely love them and treat them with respect and love all their homeboys, I get more out of it. The game expands more as opposed to me sayin, "I’m riding with the mothaf**kin’ West Coast, n***a. F**k y’all n***as. It is what it is." I been on that page before. I ain’t get far. (rest here)

Jay-Z - Show Me What You Got
Story behind the "leak" of the song here
I don't really like it. Big disappointment.

Are all you simple biatches satisfied? Beyonce made a calm, quiet video for y'all since you didn't appreciate anything remotely creative, exciting, or outside of your structured black boxes.
I've read various blogs and your reluctant "approvals" of the video. Of course, you can't give the girl all her props though -- you want this video to have more of a "storyline"; you don't understand the 20 minutes of silence at the beginning; and you wish she'd do something else with the last few seconds of the video.
Know what? Why don't you just go to film school and make your own videos instead of typing letters (for someone else to sign) and paying invoices from 8-5, Mon.-Fri? Let's see what kind of video YOU come up with.
As for my opinion of Irreplaceable, I love the song and the video is cool. I actually enjoy the non-composed, erratic Beyonce more, but Beyonce is gorgeous and "KMA"-ish in this one. She looks a whole lot like Solange - or maybe Solange looks a whole lot like her.

I've always respected the Amish -- and except for a few things, I've also envied their simpler way of living. Until recently, they were able to exist with little-to-no violence. However, the psycho pictured below, 32 year old Carl Roberts IV, changed all of that when he took a one-room school hostage and killed 5 young girls.
Before taking his own life, Roberts called his wife to confess about molesting young family members two decades ago. Wait. That means he was only 12. So, he was essentially a kid himself at that time. I think the girls were only 3 and 5, though. So that's pretty horrible - but how senseless his actions were today!
There have been too many school shootings in the past month alone, the previous one at the hands of that Bailey fool.
Schools should be equipped with metal detecters and security officers at the front doors. Perhaps some soldiers in Iraq can come home and hold guard?
Mark Foley, disgraced Republican Congressman
I think these are just excuses disguised as honesty. Why isn't he honest enough to admit what he really is?
When the scandal broke, Mark Foley ran to rehab for alcoholism. I'm sorry, but you can't tell me that Crown & Coke will turn me into a pedophile.
(Veering off subject: Mark Foley reminds me of Leslie Jordan, the little man on Will & Grace.)
Now, the man below, Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert, should leave the post. Just get up and go because anyone who can ignore—and by that I mean *accept *—a man running around hitting on teenage male pages needs to go the hell home. He looks like he's one burger bun away from a heart attack anyway.
Let's back up to Foley's confessions. After running like a bitch to AA, he had his lawyer say that he's been depressed, molested and blah, blah, blah. Those are some hard blows, but the fact that he's been a crusader for strict laws against pedophiles - yet an undercover pedophile himself - rubs me the wrong way. I've read that he was known for harassing young boys around the Capital. They were warned: "Watch out for Foley". Foley is not only a pedophile, but he's a Classic Pedophile.
Mark Foley needs to shut up instead of crying to the public.
"Any suggestion that Mark Foley is a pedophile is false, categorically false," Roth said. "Mark Foley denies ever, ever having any sexual contact with a minor." [But he sent emails to boys asking if they are horny? So bold! And, in 40 years he's never made sexual contact with a minor...?]
"Mark was the under the influence of alcohol at the time he sent the alleged e-mails and IMs that I have been informed of," Roth added. [Alcoholics should be pissed and insulted.]
Roth also announced for the first time that Foley was gay. "Finally, Mark Foley wants you to know that he is a gay man," Roth said in concluding his prepared remarks. [No, he is a pedophilic man. Ex Gov. James McGreevy and his GROWN lover are gay. If I were a gay male I'd be mad.]
Of course, Foley was abused by a Catholic Priest. No offense to holy Catholics, but I'm starting to think that that whole religion was created as a secret Mecca for gay pedophiles. I mean it is THE Place to Be if that's your thing.
I want Mark Foley to go to jail and get dealt with.

Is Alicia Keys gay or not? The hug in the last pic is pretty innocent. Maybe white people are more affectionate than we are. Alicia is black, yes, but her mother is white: so technically, she's a white woman on the inside. Other sites are assuming that Alicia and Erika (friend) are more than homegirls, but I beg to differ. Notice how their mid sections don't even threaten to touch?
