    With The Game’s third and supposively last album L.A.X being pushed back to August 26, 2008, there has been a lot of new material floating around the Internet including this track “Gangsta” featuring J. Holiday. I am not sure if this track will appear on the rapper’s next album. This song hasn’t grown on me yet but it’s not that bad either. Take a listen and vote!

    On Thursday June 26, 2008, various rappers from New York performed at the Celebrate Brooklyn Summer Season at the Prospect Park Bandshell in New York City. Performers included Special Ed, DJ Premier, Sadat X, Buckshot, Jeru the Damaja, Chubb Rock, D-Nice and the infamous Crooklyn Dodgers. I wish I was there to experience an old school hip hop event like this but i gotta wait for Rock The Bells on July 20th. Check out the photos.

    In Concert: Jay-Z Live Performance at the 2008 Glastonbury Festival

    June 29.08 @ 11:22 pm
    Posted By: admin

    Jay-Z made some serious history at the Glastonbury Festival on Saturday. Noel Gallagher from Oasis said that Hip Hop does not belong at the Glastonbury Festival. Little does Mr. Gallagher know that Hip Hop has a strong presence around the world. (Where the hell have you been? Probably in Never Never Land). Jay-Z responded by performing one of their hit singles “Wonderwall” and shutting the whole place down. The audience sang every song word to word. (So what are you saying Noel???) As usual, Jay-z gave an amazing one hour performance. Peep the videos

    ” Only Fox that I love was the red one/
    Only black man that Fox loves is in jail or a dead one/
    Red rum, political bedlam/
    Don’t let the hype into your eyes and ear drum/
    Murdoch on Fox, not 18 with barracas/
    and he hate Barack cause he march with the marchers/”

    Another Nas track is floating around called “Sly Fox” which is a FOX News diss. Produced by Stic.Man of Dead Prez – it is a rock-inspired beat with some really intense lyrics.

    New Music: Young Buck “Laugh Now Cry Later // The Game “Pain” Remix

    Young Buck “Laugh Now Cry Later”

    There are a bunch of Young Buck tracks all over the Internet and I am not sure if they are for a mixtape or an upcoming album. It’s definitely part of the buzz with the whole 50 Cent vs. Young Buck beef. “Laugh Now, Cry Later” is another attempt to reassure that haters can not stand in Buck’s way. Not sure where the Cry Later comes in.

    The Game “Pain” feat. Keyshia Cole, Jadakiss, Bun B, Pusha-T, Fat Joe, Young Buck, and Queen Latifah

    What’s with everyone and this “Juicy Fruit” sample by James Mtume? Didn’t Keyshia Cole already do a song on this beat? Let’s pay attention to the real deal. This remix is pretty good and it got a little bit of every city in it. We are talking about Houston, New York, Virgina, and Tennessee. Better yet, Young Buck and The Game appear on the track together!!! Should I say anything more, listen to the track.

    Out and Abouts: Nick Cannon at Los Angeles Film Festival

    “Does Nick look happy”

    Mr. Mariah Carey Nick Cannon made an appearance at the 2008 Los Angeles Film Festival for the screening of American Son. He clearly got permission from his wife Mariah to come out and play for one night.

    It appears that Nick is still married to his beloved wife Mariah as he did wear his wedding ring. I mean why wouldn’t he, she might throw a fit if he doesn’t. After all, they are “happily married” and does he look happy?? I don’t think so.

    Nick’s fashion game has really stepped up since he’s been married. I have seen him in suits as of late and wearing a lot of pink. I wonder if he is trying to get the GQ title??? We’ll see.
