    One of my FAVORITE DJs – DJ Baby Yu from Toronto who is now out in the ATL released his latest mixtape in his tribute to the greatest rapper of all time and his favourite rapper – Notorious B.I.G.  DJ Baby Yu warned me about this mixtape last week and quoted “If you don’t understand or appreciate this mixtape, I will quit DJing and from MUSIC period!”  I’ve been a major fan of DJ Baby Yu for a while and he never fails me with his mixtapes.

    News Roundup: Which couple is calling it a quit? Usher & Tameka

    June 11.09 @ 2:46 pm
    Posted By: admin


    (Source: Hollywood Scoop)

    Usher’s rating has been slowing going up and I didn’t think back to wonder why people are starting to like him again. Now the answers are here – Usher Raymond & Tameka Foster Raymond are calling it a quit after almost two years of marriage. The couple filed for divoruce today (June 11th). They have been living apart for almost a year and have two sons together – Raymond V born in Nov 2007 and, Naviyd Ely Raymond born in Dec 2008. Poor kids.

    After dodging breakup rumors for months, Usher and his wife Tameka Foster have reportedly called it quits.

    Several media outlets are reporting that Usher filed divorce papers in Atlanta this morning.

    “The Grammy winner has been living apart from his wife for nearly a year after almost two years of marriage,” an insider tells In Touch.

    “Usher’s primary concern is for his children. He is a great father and just wants to do what is right for them.”

    The couple has reportedly been having problems for a really long time. Last November Usher rushed to Tameka’s side after she had complications with plastic surgery in Brazil. Apparently he “had no idea that she was there to have surgery.”

    If he was unaware of his wife being in a different country having plastic surgery, it sounds like there’s a real big problem there. Hollyscoop contacted Usher’s rep for comment, but didn’t receive a reply at press time.

    I personally never really paid attention to their “bogus” relationship but I wonder what the pre-nuptials papers look like. Considering they have two children together, Usher does have to pay child support.  I wonder how much it will cost Usher to care for his children. On a brighter note ladies, Usher is BACK on the market and I wonder who will scoop him up next. Word on the street is that he has been seen around ATL with an older unindentified female [source]. So for all you older women, Usher likes what you got!

    That’s What’s Up: Neako “Get It In Ohio” Replayed Freestyle

    June 11.09 @ 1:06 am
    Posted By: admin

    Last month, I wrote about a rapper/producer named @Neako from Newark, NJ who released a dope mixtape called Rubix Cube (Green Edition) [read the original post about here.] Neako is back with a freestyle on Cam’ron “Get It In Ohio”. The freestyle is called “Get It In Ohio” replayed and for good reasons. Neako made an attempt along with Sickamore to obtain the “Get It In Ohio” instrumental but wasn’t successful. So what did he do? Being that he is a highly creative producer, he created a similar beat. In the video below, Neako breaks down some elements and techniques he used and added his own special touches to put the final product together.  Overall, the production sound amazing. As for the freestyle, you will not forget his name – Neako. Remember where you heard it first. Peep & enjoy!
