You Decided...

After careful consideration, you-- my faithful flock has decided that RYAN LESLIE is undoubtedly the one to watch out for in 2009. According to you, he is definitely creepin' on a come up this year! I must say, I am happy about this choice. It shows the sophistication and good taste of the people who read my blog. KUDOS!

Ryan is a highly sophisticated, uber-talented young man. Hailing from my home of HARLEM WORLD, NYC-- Ryan is definitely on my top list as the one to watch. He graduated from Harvard by the AGE OF FIFTEEN, and graduated at 19 with a degree in government and economics. He's a young genius in his own right. But besides his brains, he also has impeccable style and talent. He is a singer, song-writer and producer who has consistently been the saving grace for acts like Cassie (his debut artist) who has been down with his Next Selection production team since she came on the scene. Ryan has his own debut album coming out in a matter of weeks, so look out for updates on that!

With a whopping 45% OF YOUR VOTE, Ryan was undoubtedly our winner. Coming in second place at 30% of the vote was another young-stunner known as SANTOGOLD. Once again, proving that my readers have the best taste! Closing in third is Lady Gaga with 15% of your votes. Ron Browz slides in at fourth place with 10% of your votes. Thank you for participating and look out for our new poll coming..... NOW!

The New Era Is Here...

Hello my faithful flock! Hope everyone is enjoying their Friday's (whether they be freaky or otherwise-- ha). I am writing you all to debut my new illustrated-logo for your viewing pleasure. I have been working with artist/designer/novice Chris Oricchio who designed the dope picture above. Please don't hesitate to check him out at: www.decoratelierfineart.com.... Basically, I wanted my logo to embody a piece of art that you will remember. The girl looks tortured, and tormented-- although her large earrings and "NY" pendant suggest an urban-consciousness-- almost a coolness. She is supposed to be ambiguous. Not just White, or Black, or Asian, or Latino, or Pacific Islander, or even Middle-eastern-- but possibly all of those. I want my site to be a place where people of any color can come to and feel they can relate . This is why I wanted the girl to look so ambiguous. Ya feel me?

Ladies & Gents, this is just one stop on the long road ahead for 2009 that I hope will yield the most success yet for CCW. Next month, I plan on moving this site to my own domain, and look out for t-shirts this summer bearing my new logo. New artists a slated to be premiered right here, as well as huge local acts straight from the nitty gritty of NYC. Look out for names like: NIRE, Ron Browz, Meeno, Dame Grease, & fly clothing labels like: "Most Official Bitches". They will all soon make their mark right here on my site. Big shouts to loyal readers like: SpinDoctor5, D-Dubs, Mz Virgo, Fly girl, and all my followers. You always make an effort to comment and participate-- this means a lot to me. It is because of you that I have the persevearance to keep at this, and invest in this. Thank you.

Black Designers Attack Michelle O.

I'm telling you, there are times when I press my temples together and look up to the sky and ask the LORD what is wrong with my own people. YES! My own people. You don't see anyone else doing this kinda ish, other than "us". Crabs in a barrel is what we are. Self-defeating is so often our attitude... But why???? Apparently Black designers are pissed that Michelle Obama chose Asian and Cuban designers: Jason Wu & Isabel Toledo to design her inauguration fits. These designers claim it was "their moment" and she should have let at least one of them shine:

“It’s fine and good if you want to be all ‘Kumbaya’ and ‘We Are the World’ by representing all different countries. But if you are going to have Isabel Toledo do the inauguration dress, and Jason Wu do the evening gown, why not have Kevan Hall, B Michael [Knight], Stephen Burrows or any of the other black designers do something too?

“It’s one thing to look at the world without color but she had seven slots to wear designer clothes. Why wasn’t she wearing the clothes of a black designer? That was our moment.


Blah, blah, blah, whine, whine, whine. Get over it. Her choice of outfits didn't make that day any less "ours", and why gripe over something so trivial after the leaps and bounds we've come simply by her presence in the White House? These people just finished a 2 YEAR CAMPAIGN!!! Didn't they do ENOUGH for our community? Now this? And FYI, she chose minority designers-- Jason Wu is creepin-on-the-come-up, why can't we be color-blind and applaud that? I personally adored Michelle's choices for the event no matter what some nay-sayers may think. She was stunning. She couldn't have done it better. I mean, even the BIG TIME DESIGNERS sounded off and gave Michelle kudos for looking so fab and fashion-forward.Certain people just need to sit their tired-asses down. Brush it off Chelly-Chelle, brush ALL DAT OFF!

Jeezy Takes On Bill O'Reilly...

I think deep down inside, Bill O'Reilly is a hip-hop fan. That's the only way I can explain him constantly giving rappers free publicity and airtime with his silly ranting and raving. His latest target? Young Jeezy. Apparently, O'Reilly (and many other conservatives) were not happy with the "My President is Black" remix that Jeezy did with Jay-Z during inauguration weekend. Check it out below:

Bill claims that the content is totally against the "unity" that Obama represents and so on and so fourth. He challenged Jeezy to "defend his ignorance" on an upcoming show, and Jeezy has agreed. This should be very interesting. Check your tv station for local listings!

New Ginuwine???

Yup. And it's called: "My Last Chance". And baby, it just might be, LOL! CLICK HERE FOR ACCESS

Quote of The Day

Charlie Baltimore on Lil' Kim's Gripes with Notorious movie:

Wanted Christina Milian to portray her as Lil’ Kim? I wasn’t aware they were the same complexion [laughs]. Again I didn’t see the movie but last I checked, well I don’t know what color she is right now, but she was brown-skinned. Maybe she’s light-skinned now. I don’t know. People change skin tones in this day and age. I can’t see Christina Milian portraying Lil Kim. That’s not…that seems really weird to me, but you know, to each his own.

Lol, I just thought that was funny. I always thought Kim had a color-complex, and I think she has admitted to it in the past... Mainly bc Big tended to surround himself with very fair-skinned or bi-racial women (ie: Faith & Charli B. who are both from Black & European descent). No one ever called her out about it, til now I guess. But enough already ladies, we get the point... Like seriously.

Martin Louis The King, Jr.

Honestly, I can turn this blog into a 24-7 Kanye Westravaganza, because the man is constantly supplying me with quality entertaining material. What's the latest from the dueling divo? His new name. According to the good folks at Drew Reports, 'Ye is asking everyone to refer to him as: Martin Louis The King, Jr. as opposed to his former "Louis Vuitton Don" mantra. For serious. Here's more from 'Ye at his hotel room in gay ol' Paris yesterday:

“I know I’ve been called the Louis Vuitton Don, I know, I’ve been called a lot of names, uh mostly The Don, the Louis Vuitton Don — due to what happened — when the red shoes hit the runway, I was forced to change my name, to, Martin Louis The King, Jr. Address me as such. And until then, I will be in the building, swagger on a hundred thousand trillion.”

Yeah.... Ummmmmmm nah. Who does he think he is-- DIDDY or somebody? LOL, Diddy is the only one who can get away with this kind of ridiculous extravagance and even when he DOES do it, it's barely tolerable. Here's a word to the wise: if you want people to stop calling you a diva and a bi-sexual porn star, then stop giving them endless hours of supporting material! I'm jus sayin.

A True Life-Saver...

Ladies (and gentlemen) of my flock I would like you to lend me your ears (or should I say eyes). I had an epiphany today, almost cliche in a way but an epiphany all the same... Have y'all ever dated someone for more than 6 months and never met their family? Their friends? Have you ever dated someone for a few months who constantly flakes on you, or has a million and one excuses? Well clearly-- he/she is just not that into you, and it seems like it's easier than rocket-science, yet we often find ourselves in a crazy messed-up situation of unevens. Well THIS ARTICLE has put together a laundry-list of text-book symptoms that lets you know if this is the case for sure. Not only is this article on-point, concise and witty, but it's just so DARN TRUE! Believe it or not, I myself (ahaha) have been in that situation before (not often, mind you-- but I have been). It's not fun. It really sucks. You feel like a loser (although you're not). Almost like you want the earth to swallow you whole (but it won't). This article right here is my new Bible for dating. I encourage all of you out there in webland that are single (or even in a relationship) to check this out and assess your situation. I invite you to e-mail me with your thoughts!

And don't forget to check out our girls: FRANGELA in the new flick, "He's Just Not That Into You" coming to theatres February 6th!

The "REAL" Kim...

Lil' Kim has been all over the media giving her views about the new NOTORIOUS movie... Well, she's not done yet. The Brooklyn-native wants everyone to know that the REAL love story about her and BIG will come out, and she will be represented right. I know Kim is getting a lot of flack for speaking out-- but I think she's right. If you, me or anyone else was being portrayed in a film that can potentially be seen all over the world, wouldn't you want to be portrayed accurately? Or would you just sit back and say, " Oh well, I look like a crazy, obsessive, bitter slore but it's all good"... Ummmmm, no. So let's not be so hard on her. I saw the film, and I agree. The actress who played her was shamefully off the mark, and if you didn't know Kim's relationship with BIG, you'd reduce her to a random, stalker-type-- which I'm pretty sure his and her fans know isn't the case. Thanks to the good folks at Bossip for this quote... Kim has some final words on the issue. Check it:

“I feel like I was not portrayed how I should have been in this movie. I was in love with BIG and he was in love with me. I was never a JUMP-OFF, I know this and BIG knew this. I wasn’t even able to choose who I wanted to portray me in this movie. I would have never picked Naturi, she doesn’t have a Lil Kim aura at all! She looks nothing like I looked back then. We have NO similarities. Watching her on-screen was so “dreadful” as Simon Cowell would say. She is tasteless and talentless. Never once did she contact me for input or to get a feel of me for the character. A “TRUE” actress would contact the source to be the best they can be in portraying someone. That told me right there, she wasn’t right for the part and not to mention, Naturi has got to be one of THE worst actresses I’ve ever seen and I can’t believe they chose her. I really can’t!

Another thing is, I have been dealing with legal matters as far as them not wanting to pay me and sh*t for this movie, got a lawyer involved, so everything is cool with that, but it still doesn’t change my views and feelings. This is truly Faith and Ms. Wallace’s movie. And Ms. Wallace is right, this isn’t a Lil’ Kim movie and it’s not about me. I didn’t want it to be about me, I wanted it to be REAL though. And that it is NOT. I take no part in this movie and have nothing to do with it. I love BIG and will never stop reppin him. There is NOTHING anyone can do about it. The world will see the Lil Kim story, THE REAL ME! Not some made up bullshit portrayed by a talentless has-been back up singer.”


Weren't we just talking about Strangee last week? Well the fashion-Gods must have heard me because Grace Jones is covering the uber-chic "V" magazine this month. I love her, she is so fierce, so strange, so interesting, so... TIMELESS. She is WAY ahead of her time-- even now? And when's the last time you saw a 60-year-old (white or black) with absolutely NO WRINKLES??? MMMMM... FABULOUS!

You can pick up this issue at your nearest grocer or news stand!

Fruitiest... Pic... EVER!

Kanye West and tha "Fonze" (otherwise known as Fonzworth Bentley, also known as: Diddy's ex-personal umbrella-holder, smh) have been flitting around during PAris fashion week striking their best poses... Kanye better stop before those gay rumors get worse! LMAO... How YOU doin' 'ye? I keed, I keed!

Your Daily Freshness...

Yup, there goes my girl V-B showing the chicken-heads how to do fake-fur RIGHT. Take notes, take a picture, make a video, pdf-it, do SOMETHING. After all, wasn't Jigga the one who said, "You can learn from the best by jockin my fresh, jock-jockin my fresh"? I'm just sayin.

Kanye West Collabs Wit Marc Jacobs-- Wants To Stay "Great"

In the image above, Kanyeezy is rockin his new kicks that he made with Louis Vuitton. 'Ye and Marc Jacobs (the novice behind the brand) kicked off the launch of this shoe in Paris earlier this week. Artists like Pharell have collaborated with the Louis Vuitton brand before. I think it's great. Marc Jacobs is a rare talent and a couture-powerhouse. Few people know that he calls Lil' Kim a bff. He is very in-touch with the hip-hop genre that constantly promotes and flaunts the brand. It's nice to see a high-fashion label actually appreciate Black consumpption for once-- but I digress...

Kanye claims that he has been on such an emotional high after performing for Obama, and then launching his shoes-- yet we all want to rain on his parade:

This guy is hilarious. He doesn't get it yet... Life is full of pro's and cons. You are a world-renowned superstar with riches, cars, women and fame. Do you really think there are no draw-backs for that? If you feel bad for yourself 'Ye, then talk to Paris Hilton. Lawd knows how many times she been robbed, hacked into, mis-quoted, talked trash about-- the list goes on. But you don't see her throwing a temper-tantrum. It's the nature of the beast. Get over it-- or disappear into obscurity. Your choice.

Chuck Baltimore, Where Are You?

Well, it looks like Lil' Kim isn't the only one to have a gripe about the new "NOTORIOUS" movie. One of Kim's long-standing rivals, Tiffany Lane, aka Charli Baltimore, should be more than a little annoyed that she was not portrayed in the movie... AT ALL. See, Charli was the late, great, Notorious B.I.G's girlfriend in the midst of his turmoil and break-up with Faith Evans. She was also the woman he was supposedly claiming at the time of his death. The relationship with Charli was highly publicized, especially when Biggie put her in his video, "Get Money". Many did not know Baltimore at the time, and being that she was fair-skinned and had blond hair, they thought she was playing the part of Faith in that video... This made Charli infamous. She went on to have a rap career, that bubbled but never truly broke-in. I personally always liked her. In my opinion she probably could have been much more famous if she had the right management-- I guess.

Charli started off on the Untertainment label with Cam'ron, and later joined Murder Inc with labelmates: Ashanti, Ja Rule and Vita.

Although the relationship she had with Biggie was well-known, even to his then-wife Faith, Charli was not portrayed in his film what-so-ever. I believe that true fans who grew up on this music, and know the culture will be disappointed if they have not seen it already. Charli was definitely a major player in this story, and it's too bad it was not included. Foxy Brown
once said that Charli was the hardest working woman in the rap game... Who knew?

Earlier this week, Charli gave her feelings about the issue on Vlad TV. WATCH:

Just Remember...

I was sitting in my crib last night, chit-chatting with two of my homeboys, when they got into a conversation about the future of Black-America. They laughed and joked about how thuggin' just ain't cool no more-- but education is. They speculated that young black men in the 'hood will start arguing over who has the better degree from the nicer school, rather than who sells more drugs, or hits off more women. I don't know exactly what the future will bring, but this is a PSA to all the brothers (and the sisters) out there reading. NO MORE EXCUSES! I don't even wanna hear a black man or woman say they can't do what they wanna do because someone is "keeping them down". The sky is our limit, let's help make this change, make a difference, and most importantly HEAL OUR COMMUNITY! There's no better time than right now... Our President is Black! Haha.

(INTRO FOR : "The More You Know" music with the shooting rainbow)...

Pre-Inaugural Swag...

Yes! She made it to my BEST DRESSED in 2008 list, and she's back for an honorable mention! Check out that fierce feline Kerry Washington on the red carpet at Huffington Post's Pre-Inaugural Ball earlier this week. She's not only killin 'em-- she murdered them, buried them, dug them back up, chopped them up into pieces, put em on a skillet til it burned into ashes, and spread that ish over the Hudson River... I'm just sayin'.

First-Lady Swagger...

No one on the corner got swagger like THIS first lady, baby! Mrs. Obama was looking elegant, fashion-forward and simply stunning last night during her and Barack's tour of all 14 or so balls/gala's for the inauguration. I know the first thing on my mind (and everyone elses) was who made that fabulous gown Michelle was wearing? Well the good people at Bossip hooked it up:

Michelle Obama celebrated her husband Barack Obama’s Inauguration in a dazzling white, one-shouldered Jason Wu gown.

“Michelle Obama once more does something new and fresh [by] working with an emerging fashion star and turning Jason Wu overnight into a household name,” Us Weekly fashion director Sasha Charnin Morrison says.

“This type of dress shape/silhouette is something that’s completely unexpected. [It's] vibrant and aspirational, full and gorgeous,” Charnin Morrison adds. “No one else in the past would have been this striking, this ravishing or been able to pull this look off. She’s bringing sexy back.”

How fresh that she linked up with a new designer, rather than do the old-reliable thing with an Armani, Gucci, Dior or Prada gown. Good for her, she's definitley bringing sexy back-- she's quite a woman. And she's prolly the only thing stopping me from jumping on her husband and sucking his face off... Oh, don't look shocked. I'm just saying what all y'all were thinking! LOL

"Barack Is Not Black", Disgruntled Cartoonist Laments

"Here we go, here we go again..." Misery loves company they say. Aaron McGruder must be lonely...Aaron McGruder used to be one of my favorite people (operative words being "USED TO"), until he fell into some mystical, magical black hole of ignorance-- which he seemingly can't get out of. ON MLK day, the Boondocks creator went to Earlham College to speak. Not only was he making unfounded claims that this Presidency is a sham because the election system in America is a complete sham (**as a side note: it is not the system, but the PEOPLE IN IT that make it corrupt... DUH**)-- but he also went on to claim Barack is not black:

McGruder said that to him, Obama is not black because he is not a descendant of a slave. “The person who is one of us in the White House is Michelle Obama and her momma,” McGruder said.
Ohhhh Lawd, where do I start? So I guess he's claiming that you're not "black" unless you've been enslaved in America. Forget the scores of countries with African-descendants (aka "black poeple"), or the thousands of years of history that we all share in the African Diaspora-- yeah, let's forget about that. Oh, and lets also forget that every country and every nation on every corner of this earth has at one time or another endured slavery... YES... Even NATIVE Africans IN AFRICA. THEM TOO! So not only is Aaron's claim technically wrong, it's philosophically wrong, plus it just sounds ignorant, hateful and baseless. I know Boondock's is no more, and people have to do things to remain relevant, or at least notable-- but this is weak and pathetic. A participant during the speech said that she wanted her $5 back, and McGruder should go back to school. I second that notion.

Out With The Old... In With The New!

Rejoice! My faithful flock... Today is the best day in history. Yes-- the best day in history. The most powerful man in the world is President Barack Hussein Obama, and we are so proud! So proud that our country finally hurdled the race barrier, proud that MLK's dream has finally come true, proud that this fine brother right here is sharp, intelligent, amazing, and will do all he can to turn us back around. Check out the the first and "second" couples:

Step aside Bush's we got some NEW FLAVOR in the White House! LOL! Obama-Biden for the next 4-8 sounds just about great.... Wouldn't you agree???

Things are so emotional right now-- even Don King had to throw himself in the mix and show some true patriotism... Awww, how lovely!

Let's all sit in wonder and happiness as we witness the fiercest couple I know take on one of the biggest challenges in world-history and turn our nation around! The road will be long, arduous, tedious, and sometimes fruitless... But our hope, determination and energy is what is going to turn our nation around. Remember, Barack Obama is only one man, and he needs all of our help! Let's get educated, let's fight racism, let's go green and help save mother-earth. Let's all do our part. Today is a great day, and will be the first of many more. HISTORY has been changed... Here's to our FUTURE!!!!

Chrianna Does It Again!

I try to discuss this couple as little as possible. I mean, everyone else does it for me, so why sweat over it... Right? Anyway, the inseparable twosome have a hot single out called "Bad Girl" and I just can't get it out of my head... Plus it describes me to a "t": Shopoholic... Exotic, hypnotic and MELODIC!! Hahaha. Rihanna is belting it out, while Chris adds a couple rap bars... Interesting. Nice beat-- cool tune. Check it out below:

Bad Girl f. Chris Brown - Rihanna

January 15, 2009


According to Newsday.com, a little over 30 minutes ago a small Airbus 320 US Airways plane crash-landed into the icy waters of NYC's Hudson River. As we speak, the rescue efforts are going on at the Hudson, and survivors are sitting on the plane wings, and floating in the freezing-cold waters to survive.The number of passengers/survivors is currently unknown, but ABC News has predicted over 150 passengers were on-board. All are set to survive.

Apparently, the plane hit two birds while it was in the air, and both engines malfunctioned and the plane took a dive. GOD Bless everyone on that flight, and I hope they are all safe and get the treatment they need for injuries, frostbite, etc. Wow.

Picture Of The Day

The woman... the legend... The enigma that is GRACE JONES. Two things about her that ring true: you NEVER know what this woman is going to say/think/ or do next, AND she never seems to get old... EVER. She looks just like she did as "Strangee" in Boomerang-- throwing her panties around the boardroom and acting all crazy. Gotta love Grace.

For The Love Of All That Is Sane & Righteous....

Why in sam-hill (yes, I said sam-hill) is VH-1 giving Ray-J a television show? What has the man done (besides thrown his weiner around) that could possibly consititue him getting a whole show? And more importantly, WHERE IS MY SHOW??? I'm WAAAAAY more interesting than him... SMH. I mean... This is Ray-J as in Brandy's little brother. IN fact, I was just talking to my bff about this the other day, and I just don't get it. How has he managed to bang Whitney Houston, Kim Kardashian, AND Lil' Kim? How is it possible? What, is he sprinkling pixie-dust in their drinks?

Anyway, Ray-J's new "show" titled, "For the Love Of Ray-J" will premiere on VH-1 on February 2nd. The premise is that same as the other 5,345,789 VH-1 "love search" shows-- so I'm not going to insult your intelligence by actually attempting to break it down for you... VH-1 if you're reading I'm telling you right now: You're cruisin' for a bruisin'-- next reality show, it better be ME you're choosin'! And I'm gone.

Yes, Oprah Smoked Crack!

Oprah Winfrey isn't a saint, and she isn't infallible. That might just be why I like her-- but I digress. Word on the Street is that Oprah used to smoke crack with an ex-boyfriend of hers back in 1985 when she was a news anchor. She used to cut that coke, cook it up and ssshhhhhmoke it. Strange huh? I'm telling you, life is truly stranger than fiction. But y'all don't hear me though. Check it:

“Oprah made a “rock” of cocaine and baking soda in the tube and heated it, a method known as freebasing.

“[Oprah] then put the lit torch on the rock, inhaled and held the smoke in her lungs for a long time. When she finally exhaled, she began to shake violently as she put the pipe down, she had trouble catching her breath and her eyes got big as saucers.”

We smoked at least a couple of times a week. Sometimes we would smoke up until her limo was waiting to take her to the studio to perform her show…”

Oprah had actually confirmed her drug-use in a show that she had taped back in the 80's. She revealed the following:

“In my 20’s, I’d done this drug and I know exactly what you are talking about.” She said the drug use occurred while she was an anchorwoman on a television news show.

“It’s my life’s great big secret. It was such a secret because–I realize (with) the public person I have become–if the story ever were revealed, the tabloids would exploit it and what a big issue it would be.”

She went on to explain, “But I was involved with a man in my 20s who introduced me to the same drug that you’ve been talking about and, like Patrice, I always felt that the drug itself is not the problem but that I was addicted to the man.” She admitted: “I can’t think of anything I wouldn’t have done for that man.”

It's official. I perpetually will never put anything past anyone for any reason ever again in life. If this is not a testament to that, then I don't know what is...

Everyone's Gone Gay....

...Why not your favorite super-hero? Comic-creator extraordinaire (behind such classics as Spiderman and X-Men) Stan Lee is gearing up to launch the story of the only gay super-hero of our times. There will be an hour-long presentation of the comic coming to s station near you. Check out what UK's The SUN had to say about this:

Spider-Man creator Stan Lee is to unveil the world’s first gay superhero. High school basketball star Thom Creed hides his developing superpowers along with his sexuality. Former Marvel Comics boss Stan, 86 — who also created the Hulk and the X-Men — will unleash the character in an hour-long TV drama being shot in the US. If it’s a hit there it will cross to the UK. TV execs hope it will rival the huge success of shows likes Heroes. Lee developed the idea of a gay character from the award-winning novel Hero by Perry Moore. A TV insider said: “It was only a matter of time before we had our first gay superhero. And if there is one man who can make him a success it is Stan Lee. “There’s a real buzz among comic book fans.”

I don't have any problems with it... In fact, I think it's kinda cool that Stan Lee is an all-inclusive, equal-opportunity, creative force. Big ups to all my friends playing for the rainbow-team-- looks like GAY is the new BLACK!

50 Cent Gettin @ Kanye, Weezy, and YES.. OPRAH!

Budgets must be air-tight these days, because people are doing anything possible to remain relevant-- including 50 Cent. I can't knock his hustle though, that's how he became famous-- off the backs of people like Ja Rule and Fat Joe, but isn't it getting a little out of hand? Anyway, 50 is claiming that Kanye is soft, Wayne is overrated, and Oprah is STILL prejudiced against hip hop. Check it out...

@ Kanye:

“It’s the return of the heartless monster/I should give you n***s a whole R&B record/808s and my heart’s broken/I hate all these f***ers with the rainbow colors on.”

@ Weezy:

“First they said that f—-t’s hot, then they let that junkie shine,” 50 raps to lead off the record. “Gave him all the f—in’ trophies
, tell me, where the f— is mine?”

As the song closes out, 50 threatens Wayne. “I’m on your heels, Mr. Carter. I heard you. You want me to ‘die ugly?’ OK. Don’t end up on the list, n—a. Be a missing person like Cam’ron, like Ja [Rule], like [Fat] Joe. Who wants some?”

@ Oprah:

”I don’t wanna chit-chat on your sofa/ I ain’t Jay-Z, f— you Oprah”, accusing Winfrey yet again of being “prejudiced” against hip-hop.

I mean, seriously. I'd tell these artists to no and nevermind, because clearly this is a marketing scheme-- as always. And if I had any advice to give to Mr. Formula-50 I'd say, "Get a new formula, 50..." Ha!

Harlem Soldiers...

! My Harlem-boys Juelz Santana, Jim Jones & Frekey Zeeky are representing hard for Harlem on the latest cover of XXL Magazine. Juelz has made no secret of his disdain for his former boss Cam'ron's management styles. Late last year, Santana finally got out of his contract with Cam, and is scheduled to release a double-album with Lil' Wayne titled, 'I Can't feel My Face Vol. I'. So look out for that... In addition, Jim jones has managed to stay relevant since his hit "We Fly High", and hate him or love him-- it doesn't seem like he's going anywhere. "Pop Champagne" remix got him back on track where he wants to be. And I can't even front-- he definitely puts a sexy edge on the dirty-old-man look he rocks so well, lol. As for Freaky, I dunno what he's doin, but if you care you'll Google him baby!

Mandatory Golden Globe Post.

After all, I DO cover entertainment **YAWN**... The Golden Globes took place last night in Los Angeles (if anyone cares)... So, Kate Winslet took home best actress, and "Slum Dog Millionaire" took home about everything else. Oh yeah, and Tina Fey also kicked ass. Brangelina was there, random-ass people like Kim Zolciak and Bai Ling were at the after-parties, and Jennifer Lopez showed y'all bitches how to get your groove back in this statement of a dress... WHAM:
