Check out his appearance HERE!

A STATEMENT FROM GUCCI MANE!!!
As YOUR favorite rapper serves it up in prison for violating his probation, word is Gucci Mane has released a statement w/ “XXL Magazine”

“I have accepted full responsibility for my actions and I am ready to deal with what is in front of me right now… Thankfully, my label is still moving forward with my album release so I will have plenty to look forward to when I get out…”
– Gucci Mane, XXL Magazine

Speaking of getting out… the rapper has been sentenced to a year in prison (we’ll see if he serves the entire term)

Look out for Gucci Mane’s “The State vs. Radric Davis” to hit shelves Dec 8th!

DID YOU MISS MJ’s “THIS IS IT”!?
Well be happy to know that MTV has obtained the rights to broadcast Michael’s documentary in 2011!

What does that mean!???  It means that MTV will be able to show “This Is It” on the channel for the next 6 yrs!

Along w/ MTV… the rights to the film are good for the networks other stations: VH1, VH1 Classic, Palladia AND… BET

WOW!!!  The only thing that sucks bout this deal is that WE have to wait till 2011!

I can wait…

ALICIA’S JEWELS
WOTS… on November 23rd & 24th Alicia Keys will be launching her new line of jewelry @ the Collette Blanchard Gallery in NY

The grammy winning singer has teamed up w/ The Barber’s Daughters to create this new line of jewels which will make its debut next week

As a matter of fact… word is, anyone who comes to the jewelry launch can enter into a special raffle to meet Alicia Keys the next day

Look out for Keys new album… “The Element of Freedom” in stores next month, Dec 15

JAY Z GOES BROADWAY!???
Has he dominated the game so long that he’s decided to move on to something new!??

Hmm… maybe?  Well according to KN sources… Jay Z along w/ Will Smith & his wife Jada Pinkett-Smith have teamed up to produce a new Broadway musical… “Fela!”

Not quite sure how they’re helping (other than financially), but the trio’s involvement will definitely help get the word out about the play

“Fela!” is a show that centers around the life & work of the Nigerian Afrobeat musician & political activist Fe;a Anikulapo Kuti

Be assured that Jigga, Will Smith AND Jada are planning on attending the show’s opening night on Nov 23rd @ the Eugene O’Neill Theater

CHECK OUT THE CLIP FROM THE STAGE PLAY…

It’s a GOOD LOOK for the ARTS… Rrrrespect!

  1. Fantastic site, I really like your writing style. Very distinctive and easy to follow. On a lot of blogs people just drone on and on, but not you – very nice. I don’t have time to read everything here right now, I found this site when looking for something else on Yahoo, but I’ve bookmarked your homepage and will visit again soon to see the latest. Keep up the fine work! Beyonce and Jay-Z are such a inspiration to me. I really respect both of them for keeping it together through it all. And Jay-Z and Alicia Keys singing Empire State of Mind at the World Series was awesome! Did you see it? I love reading other sites my favorite artist, Beyonce K. Can’t wait for her Thanksgiving concert! Visit my site if you’d like to read more. Peace!
