I miss Tupac. I wanna challenge every rapper to make more music about something with substance. Just think, when is the last time you heard a song like this on the radio. It’s cool to dance and party but it’s more important to change lives. Enjoy.
Apparently the next Dogg Pound album will drop on Cash Money Records. No timetable has been set yet but it sounds like a good look for Daz and Kurupt. Their last album didn’t do too well with sells but that will change with Baby and Slim behind them.
This week I’ve heard two new rumors on Damon Dash. The first was that the IRS was after him for 5 million, and Dame had to ask Jay-Z for it to escape jail time. The second rumor is that Dame has been up at Def Jam looking for office space. BET’s Black Carpet speculate that he will be taking over for Jay-Z or maybe he’s just starting a new label. You be the judge. I’m still trying to find out where to cop that CEO gear.
A lawsuit brought against rapper Ja Rule over an unpaid construction bill has been dropped by the contractor who originally brought the matter to court. According to The Bergen Record, contractor Joel Tobia told Superior Court Judge Roy F. McGeady that since the story hit the media, several people he knew had warned him about moving forward with the case. Tobia claims that Ja, whose real name is Jeffrey Atkins, still owes him $8,000 for extensive work he performed on the rapper’s $3.5 million mansion. “I feel extremely uncomfortable going forward with this case,” Tobia told Judge McGeady. “People are asking me, ‘Do you know what you are doing?’ I have two children. I am concerned. I hope you are reading between the lines.” The judge replied that it was not his job to read between the lines and dismissed the case. Tobia, who has already won a default judgment against Ja for the unpaid money in civil court, was trying to have criminal charges brought against the rapper. Continue reading →
