MOS DEF TO PLAY CHUCK BERRY!!!

244_def_mos_092806.jpg

I guess on a slow news day you just have to make up a story.

Billboard.com reports: Rapper/actor Mos Def will play legendary rock’n’roller Chuck Berry in “Cadillac Records,” which is filming in New Jersey. Beyonce is starring as Etta James in the film, which chronicles the rise of legendary label Chess Records.

Big ups to Mos Def for doing his acting thing for real. I’m glad someone told Shaq to stop wasting the studio’s money lol.

SAID THE GUY WHO SOLD 40-SUMPN THOUSAND!!!

Saw this over at mediatakeout. Fat Joe says that the Rev. Al Sharpton gave him PERMISSION to use the N word. WOW!!! Term of endearment huh? I hate when people use that as an excuse. Anyway check out the ignant ass video and let me know what you think. I’m sure the Rev. is preparing a speech right now…at least he’d better be for the way he crucified Imus…

WAL-MART FORCING LABLES TO CUT DOWN PRICES!!!

wal-mart.gif

Rolling Stone reports that Wal-Mart is forcing labels to cut down prices. Labels stand to lose almost 10 million bucks if they take prices down but Wal-Mart is the largest music retailer in the nation so I’m not sure how much of a choice they have. Personally I hope this happens because I still buy music, but I’m not sure how much this is going to change the sales in the music industry.

Well I guess this is what money gets you huh? Justice in the US of A. TI is sentenced to only 12 months and 1500 community service hours for getting busted with all those guns. Now I hate to wish hard time on someone but…well I’m not even going to get into it. Big ups to the lawyer for getting him off. I heard he was trying to be a minister…I’ll let all four of you take that one LOL.

NEW MUSIC FROM BEYONCE!!!

Now this is the best thing I’ve heard all day. Definitely better than that of her sister. This one was produced by Polow Da Don who is burning up the charts lately.  I like this song. AHM said it sounds like one long intro which is true but the vocals are what got to me first. Anyway check it out and let me know what you think. I think it’s stong enough to be a single.

Shoutout to mediatakeout for the song.

NEW MUSIC FROM SOLANGE!!!

solange_knowles.jpg

What’s up world I’m back after a long hiatus and tired of doing home and frat work on spring break. So I decided to hit up my favorite blogs and see what’s new in the world of music. Unfortunately I came across new music from Solange.

Now I had high hopes for her when she joined PCD but this takes those hopes back down to moderate. In this song she addresses issues of comparisons to her sister and I think her baby or something like that. I think it’s trying to be a little too poetic. But anyway, take a listen and let me know what you think.
