Music Tidbits

50 Cent will be releasing his new album, "Curtis" on June 25, 2007. The album was originally titled "Curtis SSK." The SSK stood for Soundscan Killer. Soundscan is the data that is accumulated to determine singles, albums, and videos positions on Billboard charts. As we all know album sales have been very low. 50 hopes to change that. We just have to wait and see on that.

Amy Winehouse continues to take America by storm. Her album, "Back to Black" is a hit on both the Pop/R&B charts. Amy is definitely in a league of her own. The hair, outfits, and rowdy behavior is synonymous with her reputation.

Keri Hilson is being hailed as the next big thing in "R&B." She has worked with everyone from Britney Spears to Omarion. She is down with Timbaland's Geffen Music Group. You can listen/download an exclusive song from her below.

Rihanna Underexposed, I Love New York 2

Rihanna is releasing her 3rd album, "Good Girl, Gone Bad" on June 5, 2007. It is the first of many albums to drop this summer. My friend and I were recently talking about Rihanna. We both agreed that Rihanna stays consistent. Unlike her counterpart Beyonce, Rihanna is not overexposed even at 3 albums deep.

You ever thought about being on reality tv? Well here is your chance. There is an open casting call for the second season of "I Love New York" Don't act like you didn't see this coming! To apply or just check it out: Click Here

Beyonce's Vibe Cover

Beyonce gets soak and wet for Vibe's summer issue. Now why isn't Kelly on the cover, and she has album coming out for the month of June? Just a thought.

Mya v. Kelly Rowland: Again

Hey! I'm really not trying to pit these two against each other. I'm really not. The fans and their own teams are behind this. Snoop Dogg is set to appear on both ladies 2nd single's respectively. I imagine this will change though. Mya found herself in a similar situation(before) when her planned 2nd single with Sean Paul was switched in favor of "Fallin." The reason? Beyonce had Sean Paul on her "Baby Boy" single. Having not heard Mya's song with Snoop yet, I can't speak on it. I have heard Kelly's song with Snoop, and I didn't like it.

Artist Spotlight: Snoop Dogg

Image
Snoop Dogg debuted on scene in 1992 on the "Deep Cover" sdtrk. His debut, "Doggystyle" became the first rap album to debut at #1. His association with Dr. Dre catapulted him to become one of rap's most premier artists. His numerous run-ins with the laws are the things legends are made of. His most recently album "Tha Blu Carpet Treatment" recently went platinum. Here are some songs from Cali's original OG:

Snoop Dogg feat. Fabolous & Notorious B.I.G. - Runnin' Yo MouthSnoop Dogg feat. Bad Azz, Kokane, and Lil' HD - Wrong IdeaYoung Buck feat.

Big Update

There is so much news to report. I literally don't know where to start. I will start by saying thank you all to who visit. I have decided to post music more often because that is what you want!

Ashanti is starring in a new movie entitled "Your Nobody 'Til Somebody Kills You." The movie also stars Jadakiss and Treach. Can you say straight to DVD release?Beyonce is having "B'Day - Deluxe Edition" pulled from the shelves. The impending lawsuit against her is the reason behind it.Rosie O' Donnell is leaving The View after nearly a year. Good riddance! I was tired of that woman beefing with everybody and their mama. Mike Jones is the latest sex tape star. It can be debated whether or not it is him. Click here to see it.

Rap Is Back

Cam'ron - Suga DugaI actually like the Cam joint. It is the kind of song he is known for. I'm not sure if this song is from his upcoming album or not.

Memphis Bleek - I Can't BeJay-Z's sidekick is back at it again. The track is okay imo. I do admire Bleek for not giving up and keeping the ball rolling.

MIMS - Like ThisI believe this is MIMS second single. It is okay imo. While everyone(but myself) liked the first single, I can't help but think of him as gimicky.

Diddy feat. Keyshia Cole, Lil' Kim & Busta Rhymes - Last Night Remix(Official Remix)
Diddy's current top 10 hit has been remixed a few times over. This is said to be the official remix. There is also a version floating around with Game and Pharrell.

Bobby Valentino feat. Fabolous - Let Him GoThis is included on Bobby V's new album, "Special Occasion" due May 8, 2007. The track is ok imo.

Jacki O - MonkeyR. Kelly - Slow WindAshanti - HappyGinuwine - PonyGerald Levert - DJ Don't

Nivea is Complicated

Nivea debuted on Mystikal's "Danger" shortly before releasing her debut, Nivea. Her first single, "Don't Mess With The Radio" made a dent on the R&B charts. It was her second single, "Don't Mess With My Man" feat. Jagged Edge that put her on the map. It was a top 10 single on the Pop charts. She was also nominated for a Grammy. Her second album, "Complicated" featured the hit single, "Okay" featuring Lil' Jon & Youngbloodz. It would be the only single released on this slept on album. Fast forward some years later and Nivea has released an album overseas, "Animalistic." But here is an exclusive link to Nivea's Complicated album. Enjoy!

Nivea - Complicated

Here's Your Chance

You like coming here? Well here's your chance to voice your opinion. Is there something here you don't like? Something you want to see more of. Something you don't want to see. Let me know. Leave comments or e-mail.

In other news ...

Amerie is overseas promoting her new album, "Because I Love It." The album will be released there very soon. No release date has been set for the project in the States yet. You can expect the album to leak very soon. You can always expect Amerie to come with something different.

More Kelly Rowland news. I'm reading that her album may be digitally released on Itunes in May. But the physical album will still come out on June 26th. I don't understand the reasoning behind that. In that case you might as well release the physical copy in May as well. Either way the album is gonna leak out to the public.

50 Cent's new album is called "Curtis." It will be released on June 25, 2007(That's a Monday). 50 hooked up with Th…

Ooooooh

My job is a mess! I'm on my way there as I type this. Last week one of our co-worker's got caught stealing. He had a bag full of toilet paper and sugar. He'd been taking stuff like that for years. He just finally got caught! Our chef walked out last week after being upset. Our genernal manager is leaving as well. She was in the office crying the other day! People are calling off and complaining. Hey! I even took Saturday off just to give them a taste of their own medicine.

Angelina Jolie, Diddy, Charm School

Angelina Jolie recently admitted to being sexually active since she was in Kindergarten. Can you believe that? By the time she was 14 she had a boyfriend and she starting cutting him after sex wasn't enough. Ok? This is the same woman who was kissing her brother in public. She also wore a locket of ex-husband, Billy Bob Thornton's blood. No telling what weird things she does with Brad.

So Diddy is going to release a fourth single from his gold, "Press Play" album? Poor Danity Kane only got 2 singles and almost didn't get the second one. My friend along with DK fans were upset at the promotion and marketing of the album. That's what happens when the CEO is an artist. He puts his needs first. The other artists suffer, and it just leads to more problems.

Who watches Charm School? Apparently a lot of you do. The premiere of the show averaged 5 million viewers during its premiere. It beat out the 4 million that tuned into the premiere of "I Love New York."…

Showdown

Mya and Kelly Rowland will be releasing albums on June 26, 2007. Kelly's single, "Like This" feat. Eve is climbing the charts. She has the Knowles clan in her corner. Hopefully Mathew Knowles will work his magic with Kelly as he did with Beyonce. One would think anyway! This is the same man who sent Kelly back to the lab. It was a very needed decision after bad reviews of her songs. Interestingly enough a lot of these songs can be found on the new album. Some of the tracks have been reworked or slightly modified.

Mya just shot the video for her single, "Lock U Down" feat. Lil' Wayne. The song was leaked months ago, but is starting to surface on radio. Mya is also on a promo tour and is making the rounds. She is also gracing numerous magazine covers. I have yet to see Kelly on any magazine covers or any appearances as of yet. I'm sure things will kick into high gear very soon though.

Who are you rooting for? Who are you looking forward to? Do you even ca…

Snoop's Upside Ya Head

You know what I like about Snoop. He's so laid-back, and he doesn't give a fuck! It is a far cry from the persona he started out with. He was wild, outspoken and always ready to rumble with the best of them. Since then Snoop has moved on to building a huge and successful empire. Unfortunately his last album was overshadowed by his trouble with the law. Snoop shows no signs of slowing down. We can expect to hear Snoop on upcoming albums from Ashanti, Mya, and Kelly Rowland.

Mya, Charli Baltimore, and Tank

Mya will release her long awaited album, Liberation. The album features the first single, "Lock U Down" featuring Lil' Wayne. Mya is currently touring to promote the album. Guest and production include Bryan Michael Cox, Snoop, Kwame (Tweet), etc.

Charli Baltimore is ready to give it yet another try. Her new album, "Built To Last" will be released on July 3, 2007 on Interscope Records. Producer Scott Storch will produce the bulk of the album. I hope Charli actually comes out. Every deal she's had thus far hasn't worked out. If this one folds, I think she should go back to being a paralegal.

Tank will release his 3rd album, "Love, Sex, & Pain" on May 15, 2007. The album features 12 tracks. Production from Timbaland and The Underdogs.

Here are the latest singles from the aforementioned artists:
Mya feat. Lil' Wayne - Lock U Down
Charli Baltimore feat. Lil' Wayne - Test Us
Tank - Please Don't Go

The Top 5 Most Hated Artists

1. Beyonce

Coming in at #1 on the list of the Top 5 Most Hated Artists is Beyonce. Beyonce is possibly at the peak of her popularity(right now). Every ten seconds there is a new Beyonce rumor. Her popularity makes her an even bigger target for hate. When Destiny's Child started having problems within the group, Beyonce was blamed. There was even an anti-Beyonce site in existance. The oversaturation and success keeps the level of hate at full steam. It is the reason why Beyonce comes in at #1 on the list of the Top 5 Most Hated Artists.

The Top 5 Most Hated Artists

2. 50 Cent

Coming in at #2 on the list of the Top 5 Most Hated Artists is 50 Cent. Lewd, gimmicky, controversial, and cocky all describe 50 Cent's persona. It is the constant feuds with rappers, singers, and entertainers that keeps 50 Cent in the headlines. It has become a gimic of his. It is one that has worked to his advantage and disadvantage. That is the reason why 50 Cent comes in at #2 on the list of the Top 5 Most Hated Artists.

The Top 5 Most Hated Artists

3. Ashanti

Ashanti comes in at #3 on the list of the Top 5 Most Hated Artists. The first bout of "hate" came with the Soul Train Awards Entertainer of the Year award of which Ashanti was to receive. Thousands of people signed a petition(the first in many petitions to follow for similar artists) that Ashanti was not deserving of the award. Ashanti's vocal ability and dancing is often questioned and ridiculed. It is the reason why Ashanti comes in at #3 on the list of the Top 5 Most Hated Artists.

The Top 5 Most Hated Artists

4. Brandy

Brandy comes in at #4 on the list of the Top 5 Most Hated Artists. The first bout of "hate" came with criticism of the singers' image and vocal talent or lack thereof. The hate continued when it was revealed that she was never married(like she claimed). There was also the news of a tragic car accident that left one mother dead. While cruising along the highway, Brandy hit one car which resulted in a four car pile up. That's why Brandy comes in at #4 on the list of the Top 5 Most Hated Artists.

The Top 5 Most Hated Artists

5. Cassie

Cassie comes in at #5 on the list of the Top 5 Most Hated Artists. Cassie's live performances on 106&Park and TRL damaged her credibility. It showed her inexperience as a vocalist and dancer. That's why Cassie comes in at #5 on the list of the Top 5 Most Hated Artists.

Agree or disagree. Rant or Rave. Debate or relate. These are the artists who get the most hate.

I compiled results from the following:
BrandyHorizons, AshantiDaily, UltimateKelis, RealestNi**az, HipHopHideout, FaithEvansOnline, UBG, Myspace, Foxboogie, Cigna's Sounds & Views, and friends.

Mario Doesn't Know....................'Bout Ne-Yo

Mario's new album, "Go" is on the horizon.......so I think. If Mario can get the date right, people will know when it is coming out. Appearing on 106&Park yesterday, Tuesday he said his album is coming out on July 30th. I know that is not right! Music is not released on Monday. There are rare exceptions (Eminem and Destiny's Child). Music (and DVDs) are released on Tuesdays. I think he meant to say July 31, 2007 (the correct date). But I also read July 17th on mtv.com. Who knows?

Mario said Ne-Yo's recent contribution to his album was not needed. He claims it didn't fit the direction he was going this time around. You can hear the song Ne-Yo penned for Mario in the link below.

Mario - What's It Gonna Be

College Hill

BET hyped up last night's episode of College Hill so much. I was really hoping it would live up to the hype, and it did. I can't wait to see what happens next. In reality style fashion, anyone who fights gets kicked off. Two of the girls, Krystal and Vanessa fought after words were exchanged. The other housemates were struggling to keep the girls apart. Once the fight was broke up, Vanessa's face was covered in blood. So the big question is who's gonna go home? JT who started the whole argument by calling Idesha a "bitch." Or will it be Vanessa who attacked Krystal first? Or will it be Krystal for using a weapon. I don't know what she had in her hand. Everyone is saying she either had a high heel or a brush in her hand.

Ashanti/Beyonce Leaves, G-Unit Still Cool

Ashanti is leaving The Inc! I don't believe that just yet. I do believe there is some tension between her and Irv. A few weeks ago Irv confirmed Ashanti was still on The Inc. He said she is the captain of her ship. Ashanti was noticeably absent on Lloyd's new album. I'm not sure if she will be featured on Ja's new album or not.

Beyonce is leaving Columbia Records! I don't think this true. She is just going to renew her contract more than likely. Jay-Z reportedly has been trying to lure her over to Def Jam. Why? Jay-Z might be leaving Def Jam too. The two were reportedly rumored to start their own label. As if?

The G-Unit camp is still going strong. 50 Cent and Young Buck have kissed and made up. I'm so happy for them.....hahahaha!

Me & My Jokes

Anyone who knows me well enough knows that I like to joke around. I have played some rather cruel and crazy jokes on a lot of people. Recently I told this guy I was going to be on BET's College Hill Intern. I said the camera crew would be here this week. The guy was like "I'm gon be down here! I gotta get on TV." After I told him I waited a lil' while and told him I'm a good liar! He didn't think anymore about it. Then I repeated it to him again, and he was like "And I really believed you!"

One time at work I came in and acted like I didn't have a voice. So I was hoarse the whole day.

I also told this girl I work with that her boyfriend roughed me up and told me to stay away from her lol. He was in on the joke as well. It's a joke I've yet to come clean about!

My friend once said to me my sense of humor is "seriously dry." LOL I'm a very sarcastic person, and I can often fool people into thinking I'm serious when I'…

Rihanna

There are a few rumors going around about Rihanna. First, Rihanna is said to be dating Omarion. Second, her ex-bf is supposedly DL. He appeared in two of her videos (Unfaithful, SOS), and was also her background dancer. The ex-bf was said to be dating a VP of Sony Urban Music. Take this all with a grain of salt. I'm only reporting and commenting on what I read. I firmly believe there is always truth to a rumor. Stay tuned as this story unfolds. And if you didn't know already Rihanna's new album, "Good Girl, Gone Bad" will be released June 5, 2007!

I Need Your Help

I am urging all my fellow bloggers/readers for your help. Please! It is not as urgent as it sounds. LOL! I am conducting a survey. I am compiling a list of the Top 5 Most Hated Artists in music. I am in the process of compiling info from friends, family, and other message boards. I would like you all to submit your picks. It can be artists you hate, or artists you know get the most hate. You can comment here or you can e-mail me. Be sure to explain some of the reasoning behind your decisions. You have until Wednesday to submit your picks. Thanks!

Ne-Yo's Leak, Kels Doubles Up, Timbo & Justin

Ne-Yo's album leaked, and I don't like it! I haven't listened to the album straight through just yet. Maybe once I really listen to it my mind will change. I am however in no way anxious to hear it again at this point.

R. Kelly shows no sign of aging or slowing down with his new album, "Double Up." The album will be in stores on May 29, 2007. The album is proceeded by the first single "I'm A Flirt" featuring T.I. & T-Pain. The new album will be a mostly hip-hop affair aided by such rap lumanaries as Young Jeezy, Young Dro, etc.

Timbaland and Justin Timberlake are becoming the new tag team in production. They successfully updated Prince/Michael Jackson's sound on Justin's "FutureSexLoveSounds" album. They will also put in work on Madonna's new album.

Toni Braxton, Nas, Ginuwine, The Spinners, Monie Love

Kimora Lee = Reality TV

Kimora Lee is getting her on reality show to air on the Style network. Kimora joins the growing list of celebs with reality shows. The reality show genre was dismissed early on. It has since proven to be very popular. So popular that it has rivaled some of the highest-rated sitcoms on TV. Look for upcoming reality shows from Kelis & Nas, Remy Ma, Shaq, Ice Cube, Paula Abdul, Bobby Brown, etc.

Foxy or DMX?

Who is in and out of court more? Who is arrested more? Who spazzes more? Foxy or DMX? These two have more in common than I thought. This comes on the heels of an arrest warrant being issued for DMX. The charge? Who knows! Interestingly enough Foxy & DMX were once rumored to be romantically involved.

T.I. Talks, Usher's Plans, Marsha's Solo

T.I. recently spoke about his upcoming album, T.I. vs. TIP which is a concept album. The first single is entitled "Big Things Poppin," and it is produced by Mannie Fresh. Look for guest spots by Ciara, Eminem, Lil' Wayne, and the aforementioned Fresh. The first single goes to radio April 17, 2007. The album will be released this July.

Usher says his new album is six months near completion. He obviously still has a way to go. He has said that his engagement will reflect in his music. He spoke about a song entitled "The Realest" which describes his new boo. The song is produced by JD. Could it be a possible first single? We can expect Usher's new album this November.

Marsha (The Songstress) of Floetry is recording her solo debut. She is working with Dr. Dre, The Neptunes, Scott Storch, and Just Blaze. What does the future hold for Floetry? One can only wonder. Marsha's solo plans has caused a rift between her and duo partner, Natalie.

Trey Songz Pushed Back

Trey Songz' upcoming album "Trey Day" has been pushed back to June 12, 2007. I previously reported the album was being released next month. Trey's first single, "Wonder Woman" is on the airwaves now, and the video recently premiered on BET.

Ne-Yo says Whitney's new album is boring

Ne-Yo, in all his cocky glory recently said Whitney's upcoming album is.........................boring! He said a lot of the songs are in reference to her return. He also went onto say he hopes to bring some excitement into the record. First of all, Ne-Yo is a very gifted songwriter. He is the go-to guy for a hit single. But all of Ne-Yo's songs have the same melody. I just don't see how he plans to do something different for Whitney. He said it though, so we shall see.

Remy Ma keeps it fresh

Remy Ma has officially severed ties with Terror Squad. She has expressed her desire to leave last year after dismal sales of her debut album. Remy is currently working on her new album entitled "Punisher." She is also working on her upcoming collabo album, 3Sum with Jacki-O. I have the exclusive first single from Remy and it is called "Fresh."

Hear it here: Remy Ma - Fresh

If you haven't heard

50 Cent has denounced Young Buck! Last week 50 appeared on Angie Martinez' radio show where he expressed his disdain for Young Buck. 50 stated that he holds Buck in the same place as Game. Ouch! He also went onto say he won't collaborate or promote him! This comes on the heels of Buck's recent truce with Game. Buck stated that the truce was on behalf of G-Unit. Apparently not!

Brandy's Back, Monica's New Single

Brandy is coming back this fall with her new album entitled "Enter My World." You can expect her first single to debut this August. A new website is in the works. It will feature everything from new music to never before seen photos of the star.

Monica has ditched "Sideline Ho" in favor of "Hell No" featuring Twista. Hell No is the fourth single from Monica's "The Makings Of Me" album. Last year the album debuted at #1 on the R&B/Hip-Hop charts. Here is the new single:

Monica feat. Twista - Hell No

Cam'ron reaches an all new low

Cam'ron has named his new album "Courtesy Curtis." You read it right! The title is in reference to Cam's arch-nemesis 50 Cent. This is a move (on Cam's part) to simply stir up controversy. The two rappers have been beefing for awhile now. I'm not quite clear on the origin of the beef. Cam's original working title for this new album was "Shade of Black." I liked that title much better!

BET's Top 25 Dancers

Did anyone see the buffoonery the BET Top 25 Dancers was? I think the show should of been retitled "BET's Top 25 R&B/Hip-Hop Dancers." I was expecting a more varied list. I think BET needs to leave the countdowns to E! and VH1. Here is a rundown of a few of the #'s:

25. Ciara

24. Diddy

23. Big Daddy Kane

18. Aaliyah

17. Mary J. Blige

4. Chris Brown

May Men

The month of May is shaping up to be a big month for several R&B males. Ne-Yo's"Because of You" is due on May 1, 2007. Bobby Valentino's "Special Occasion" is due May 8th. Tank and Trey Songz, "Trey Day" are due on May 15th. And how could I forget the king R. Kelly'z "Double Up" due May 29.

Note: Release dates are subject to change.

Happy Easter

How could I forget to say Happy Easter to all my fellow bloggers/readers? I hope you all are enjoying your holiday! No candy for me! I cut out all candy and sugar pretty much.

Mario switches up

Mario will be releasing his new album "GO" on July 31, 2007. The album was originally set to come out on May 8, 2007. The first single is entitled "How Do I Breathe." The song can be described as Let Me Love You Part 2. I take it that everyone has heard that. The song hit the net months ago. Countless other songs have hit the net from Mario, and I can't wait to hear the new album.

Ashanti Returns

Ashanti is hard at work on her upcoming album, "Incredible." The album will be released this fall on The Inc./Universal Motown. Ashanti is working with The Neptunes, Snoop, Jim Jones, Robin Thicke, LT Hutton, and many others. This is shaping up to be a very interesting album. I can't wait to hear it.

April '06 - A Look Back

We're 7 days into the new month, and there have been a few news stories. I kept a log of some events from the year prior. This time last year these were some of the headlines that kept us talking:

Suge Knight files for bankruptcy.Lil' Cease is arrested. Eminem divorces wife (ex-wife) again.Proof of D12 is shot dead.Babyface sues Anita Baker.Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes welcome baby girl Suri. Micheal Jackson clears up financial debt, recording new album on new label. Whitney Houston reportedly goes back to rehab for a 3rd time. Boris Kudjoe & Nicole Ari Parker expecting 2nd child. Snoop Dogg is arrested in London airport.

Shawnna leaves DTP

Ludacris appeared on a radio show and confirmed that Shawnna is no longer on DTP. As I reported earlier, Shawnna is no longer with 3Sum(group with Remy Ma & Jacki-O). I read a rumor that Ms. Jade (Big Head, Ching Ching) might take her place. Meanwhile Shawnna is looking at other labels. One possible label/imprint being eyed is Kanye's G.O.O.D. Music. Her upcoming album is titled "Just Shawnna."

Lloyd - One For Me

This is one of my favorite songs on Lloyd's new cd, Street Love. It is called "One For Me." The songs samples Art of Noises' "Moments In Love." The sample is very popular as it has been used numerous times.

Lloyd - One For Me

Usher's Baby, Olivia Dropped, Game's Beef

There are rumors that Usher's fiance Tameka Foster is pregnant. It is unclear if Usher or Tameka's ex-husband is the baby's father. She will have to wait 'til the baby's birth to do a paternity test.

50 Cent confirmed a number of rumors circulating him and G-Unit. 50 confirmed that Olivia has been dropped from G-Unit. 50 blamed her management for not seeing eye to eye with him. It was basically a mismatch from the start. 50 harbors no bad feelings, and the sexual harrasment thing was false.

Game has reignited the beef with G-Unit. It was only a matter of time before this happened. The beef (this time) is in response to Yayo's assualt on Game's manager's son. Game attacks the whole G-Unit even Buck, who he allegedly made up with. You can here Game's new diss, Body Bag here with a slew of new and old songs:

*NEW* Game - Body Bags*NEW* Yung Joc - Coffee Shop
*NEW/OLD* Mario - Go
*NEW* 50 Cent - Straight To The Bank*NEW* Timbaland feat. Keri Hilson - Miscomm…

Making the band follow up

I reported a few weeks ago that Aubrey from Danity Kane was rumored to be pregnant. It turns out that the rumors were untrue. The rumors were part of an April Fool's joke started by the singer. She was seen in a store along with D. Woods shoppping for baby accessories. It was an attempt to make the rumors appear true, but they are false.

In other news, Danity Kane is working on their follow-up to their platinum debut. The girls are currently in the planning stages of the album. They are said to be more involved this time with the writing and production aspects. They are seeking past and new collaborators for the album due this fall.

I love new york finale

So what did you all think about the finale? I was surprised then again I wasn't. I knew Chance wasn't going to win. He had been on Tyra's show along with a few other cast members. That is what gave it away. So I knew Tango had it. The surprising part for me was that he proposed. He was really confident he had her and he was right. I know a lot of people wanted her to pick Chance. I think Tango was a better choice though. He seems to be more stable and respectful. Only time will tell if these lovebirds will last. I can't wait to see the reunion show which will air in 2 weeks, April 15, 2007.

G-Unit makes nice

Have you noticed Young Buck playing the role of good samaritain for G-Unit? Buck has been deading his beef with everyone from Jadakiss to Dipset. How real is this though? Is this a move to do away with the bad publicity G-Unit has received lately? Is this a ploy to plug Buck's own album? Where is Lloyd Banks? He's been M.I.A. for a minute. I think he's still trying to get over the embarrassment his last album was. I thought it was a good album by the way.

March Madness '07 - A Look Back

Whew! 3 months down. 9 to go. Not that I was keeping count lol. It has become a regular occurence for me to recap the prior month when heading into a new one. I compiled the most memorable headlines of the past month. Please be advised as this list is pretty lengthy.
