ERYKAH’S THOUGHTS
For those of you who ALREADY have Badu’s new album “New Amerykah Part Two (Return of the Ankh)”, you may find yourself comparing it to the 1st… kinda like Jay Z’s “Blueprint” albums

Quite different isn’t it?  I bet you’re already saying either “Part 1 is better” or “I like Part 2 more”… well before you come to a FINAL conclusion, here’s Erykah’s thoughts on her new project:

“I called it Part II: The Return of the Ankh because this album is the sister of the left side of my brain — it is the right side… Part I was the left side of my thoughts — it was more socially political and my thought process was more analytical.”
- Erykah Badu, Billboard

Hmmm… Fair enough

Maybe instead of over analyzing it, we should just enjoy the music for what it is!

BIG BOI’S DEAL
It looks like OutKast’s own Big Boi has found himself a new home for his new solo album “Sir Lucious Leftfoot: The Son of Chico Dusty”

WOTS… the rapper has inked a deal w/ Def Jam records

Finally fans of OutKast here a new album from one of it’s members.  (we were beginning to think this may fall into the same trap as Dre’s “Detox”)

“People might say [Def Jam] doesn’t have any hot artists, but he got the number one record with Ludacris’ last week . . . My album is a musical nuclear bomb, and we finna drop it”
- Big Boi, Gyantunplugged.com

FINALLY!  Big Boi’s been workin on this album for bout 3 years!!!

Featured on “Sir Lucious Leftfoot: The Son of Chico Dusty”… Raekwon, Mary J Blige, George Clinton, Too Short, and more

Boi’s new album SHOULD be hitting shelves in May  (keep your fingers crossed!)

RIHANNA’S NEW MAN?  TRAVIS’S NEW FLING?  NEW COUPLE?
Not quite…

WOTS… Blink 182′s Travis Barker has been teaching singer Rihanna to rock out on the drums for her European tour

According to his latest tweet:

http://twitpic.com/1adwoq – Teaching Rihanna some things on drums. She JAMS!!!!! Watch out for her!! “
- Travis Barker, Twitter

WOW… can RiRi really jam?  We’ll have to wait & see!
