Jay Z Jockin’ (Dope Boy Fresh) Track Leaks

The Jay Z Jockin’ (Dope Boy Fresh) track leaked day before yesterday on the Internets. I didn’t post it because – unlike the Jay Z d*ck riders – my ears are clean and what I hear is straight garbage. (Click to listen)

Jay Z Live Nation Deal Not Falling Apart

P. Diddy boasts about sex skills
(Digital Spy)

P. Diddy has claimed that he could win an Olympic medal for his stamina in the bedroom. The rapper was asked what Olympic title he could win at the summer presentation of his Sean John fashion line. “Who could have sex the longest,” the hip-hop star responded. Read More…

Santogold, aka Santi White, is extremely talented. You can tell she’s talented because she’s achieved amazing crossover appeal in this new LSITNB era. Now if Santogold had no talent, it would be necessary for her to look like Beyonce, Ashanti, Cassie, or Mya – to achieve any measure of success.

Please don’t blame me for making that analogy – blame yourselves for allowing no talent singers like them to muck up the musical landscape so real singers like Monica or Trina Broussard have to work twice as hard to get a hit record.

Anyway, I guess I should be happy that a Nubian sister is getting some love from the establishment without having to wear any tail feathers at all.

Bernie Mac’s friends and fellow comedians Cedric The Entertainer and DL Hughley paid tribute to B Mac on Larry King Live last night. It was a fitting sendoff for one of the greatest comedians who ever lived. Ceddy and DL remembered the good times during the successful “Kings of Comedy” tour.

Oh, and Steve Harvey listened in from a studio in Atlanta. He tried his best to act like he really cared, but he was so transparent in his expressions. An uncomfortable hush fell over the studio when Harvey tried to get a few laughs in. When King asked Harvey if he visited B Mac in the hospital, Harvey responded that he had just arrived in Chicago the morning Mac died. He claimed he was “at the hotel eating breakfast” as if to suggest that he was on his way to the hospital to visit Bernie but didn’t make it in time.

But wasn’t B Mac in the hospital for at least three weeks?

Jeremy Suarez who played Mac’s homosexual nephew on the Bernie Mac Show, also paid tribute to the great comedian along with the other cast members, Kellita Smith, Camille Winbush and Dee Dee Davis.

Loyal readers Jonathan and Emilio sent in more pics of themselves – even though you hated on them earlier. You know what the sad thing is? They love this community because they recognize there are “good good people” here. Most of you are hating on people that you don’t even know. These guys would probably be in a position to save your life one day, yet here you are hating on them.

Again, I do this for a living. What’s your excuse?

Violator Records CEO Chris Lighty believes Barack Obama has more to worry about than what some rapper has to say. In a blog post on Huffingtonpost.com this morning, Lighty suggested that Obama stick to the important issues affecting black and white America, such as lowering the gas prices and ending the war in Iraq.

Lighty urges Obama not to waste his time with rappers who disrespect our women in their lyrics, then yuck it up in the boardrooms with the ones who encourage the misogyny.

Don’t lower yourself to speak to rappers! Just because you are African-American, don’t allow the press to make you step down from the plate of being one of the most powerful men in the world to address a comment from a rapper, no matter how great he or she is. If the Dixie Chicks stand up and attack McCain, the press already knows it’s almost worthless to ask him about it. He wouldn’t have a clue who they are… (Source)

Lighty does have a point there, but he’s wasting his time. Obama is a mere puppet in the hands of the old money in Washington who really control the government. Whether Obama wins or loses in November is entirely up to them.
