Joell Ortiz Feat. Novel "Duffle Bag Boy" (Remix)

One of my favorite up and coming artist is Joell Ortiz. So I am glad to hear him bring some justice to this track. He is trying to keep his name out there until that Aftermath album comes out.

Music: Ray J On the Mixtape Scene! (Kay Slay)

I guess it all makes sense now... a couple of weeks ago I saw this video with Kay Slay and Papoose. In the background you saw Ray J looking like the thug he is NOT..LOL. So he linked up with Kay to actually put this Mixtape called Ray J Unkut. You have audios, one of Kim Kardashian leaving Ray J a voice mail regarding the whole porn video, the next is called (im assuming here) My bottom bitch. Ray J couldn't get his career going with the porn now he wants to rap/sing... The track is actually funny to me - you guys let me know what you think. oh yeah im sure Kim is going to Sue his ass for the voice dumb ass.

GARBEGE and the Skate life style brand SNEAUX collaborated to bring you The Black Diamond Sneaker. These kicks are off the hook, so go and get yourselves a pair because these are limited edition joints 360 pairs made (hey I need to talk to them Garbege Guys, they should've made 365 - One for every day of the year!). The Black Diamonds will be out on Black Friday the kick off for Xmas shopping.

Kanye West in Denial of Mother's Death

Kanye West is devastated and seemingly "in denial" after a botched plastic surgery likely led to the sudden death of his beloved mother, friends told the Daily News.

The rapper, who has been in Europe on tour with his album "Graduation," needed several days to gather the strength to fly back to the U.S., family friends said.

Adding to the tragedy, a friend says, the Grammy-winning rapper didn't think his mom, Donda West, needed any physical improvement - much less radical cosmetic surgery.

"I don't think Kanye was aware Donda was getting the surgery, or certainly the extent of it," a family friend said. "He loved and supported her just the way she was. He thought she was beautiful."

When The Source Was Pure...Flashback

As I am watching this, I can see how the times have changed (drastically). Check out the un-cool Dave Mays (Minus wack ass Benzino) back in the late 80's early 90's. This was when the Source Magazine was the ONLY mag catering to us Hip Hop heads (no the Rap Up never counted for me... That was more bubble gum shit). I got that magazine religiously as I get my XXL now (kind of upset at XXL for there new cover artist...)- But check out the clip which features MC Serch from 3rd Base (You get the gasss face!!!!!) Enjoy the blast from the past.

Oh yea check out: The dress code, The Cassette library and Dave Mays Mac (lol)

Foxy Brown's Album Pushed Back To Feb. 5th

Foxy Brown’s new album, Brooklyn’s Don Diva, has a new street date of February 5th, 2008. And the album push backs keep coming. This is a good move from the labels involved (just this time) because the rumor is that she will be out in December (internet rumors) So this will give her time to adjust and make her promotional rounds...and hopefully create a buzz.

On another related Foxy tip... BET will be airing an episode of its American Gangster series spotlighting Foxy’s manager, Chaz Williams, on November 21st, 2007. Williams has been Foxy’s manager for the past year, and has become an integral part of her career.

Should the VMA's, World Music Awards, The Grammys, vibe awards, Source Awards (damn did i just write that...Don't mind me) and the BET awards have a new category like "Best Pushed Back Album of the Year!? Shiiiit who would win that one ...Give me your thoughts.

JadaKiss Officially Signs with Roc-A-Fella

It’s official, Yonkers MC and member of the LOX Jadakiss has inked a new joint solo deal with Jay-Z’s Roc-A-Fella Records and Ruff Ryders. Although rumors of a move to Def Jam by Kiss have circulated for some time now, Jay-Z confirmed the deal during a recent show at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom.

This is great for Jada and his whole Yonkers crew...its a good look. I am thrilled that all the LOX members are doing good thing in their careers- Styles P. Is doing his thing Jada just signed with the ROC and Sheek is still trying to sell records. But I want to see LOX album, fuck a mixtape...Give me an Album! Wiild out!

LMAO!!!!

Saigon's Album Gets Pushed back Till The New Year

Saigon joins the push back album of the year award AGAIN... I can surely talk for a lot of people when I say that I've been waiting on this album for the past 3 years- So does anyone at Atlantic know what they are doing, or are they waiting for T.I. House arrest album to finish up? This is what the Yardfather had to say to SOHH.

"It ain't comin out till its ready," Sai told SOHH. "The album's not even done yet. Just Blaze is such a perfectionist, even more so than me. And we keep finding things that can make it better."

The Story isn't specific to Saigon, but it's that of Black people in general. The rapper said his album is about ways that African-Americans can improve their standing in this country.

"It's the story of what we need to do as black people to get on track," he explained. "We fu**ed up in the country. Our mindset is fu**ed up."

The album tackles such issues as being a father to your children, a positive contributor to your community and becoming economically responsible.

Gym Class Heroes Working on New Album

This has to be one of my favorite groups (thanks josh for putting me on).

T.I. is writing his lyrics down on paper, which he hasn't done since his debut album, "I'm Serious," in 2001.
