JUMPING ON THE BANDWAGON
Now by now some of us already know that Wu Tang members Meth, Raekwon & Ghostface have gotten together to make a new album… NOW it looks like another member of the clan wants to join in on all the fun!

WOTS… RZA loves the idea so much he’s gonna try to make himself a part of the project!!!

“I think it’s a great idea. I was pushing that idea to them years ago… I’m gonna see Meth tonight in the studio to see if I could add on something to that project… Add some depth to it.”
– RZA, MTV

Sounds like a good idea… BUT does the the other 3 think it is?  If you remember Ghostface has had some beef w/ RZA regarding money that he feels it owed to him

According to the MC who goes by “Tony Starks”… RZA owes  him over $150,000 in back royalties. Unfortunately it doesn’t look like the RZA plans on forking over any money (he feels he’s earned it since he was the group’s producer

Hmmm… I wonder if there’s some bad blood?  WHAT DO YOU THINK!?

KANYE’S SHORT FILM… SHORT LIVED!
Fans of Kanye West were given an online treat… only to be taken away!

WOTS… Mr West’s short film collabo w/ director Spike Jonze “We Were Once A Fairytale” was pulled from the rapper’s website shortly after making its online premiere

There’s no word on why Kanye pulled the video… only a message from the rapper:

“Sorry I had to take it down”
– Kanye West

Sounds like he was forced to pull the video…

LUCKY FOR US!!!  You can check out the video right here…  You better hurry though, you know they’ll end up pulling this one as well!  ENJOY!!

RATED R
So the good girl gone bad is BACK!!!  And this time she’s “Rated R” (or at least her next album is)

WOTS… expect the Barbadian (is that right) to be releasing her next album in November

With her 1st single “Russina Roulette” out… fans of Ri-Ri can expect more work on her CD from super-producers Tricky Stewart, The Dream, Justin TImberlake & Stargate

Speaking of Ne Yo… having worked on the album, the singer/songwriter & producer says the world needs to get ready for a Rihanna that has things to say!

“…she ain’t going to make no apologies for it… I’ve heard a good majority of the album”
– Ne Yo, MTV News

“Rated R” should be hitting stores Nov 23
