R.I.P. B.I.G.
Before we get to anything else… we have to pay respect to one of our favorite MC’s

Christopher George Latore Wallace  (May 21, 1972 – March 9, 1997)

He is definitely one of the greatest… The music community misses him

D’ANGELO:  SEX FOR MONEY!??
The singer D’Angelo has seemed to take the words “Will work for food/money” to the very extreme

Looks like the R&B star wanted to break someone off w/ his “brown sugar”!!!

Over the weekend, the 90’s soul singer was arrested for “allegedly” offering an undercover policewoman $40 in exchange for ORAL SEX!!!

Now according to D’Angelo & his people… he has asked his fans to not “jump to any conclusions” & to continue to support him during this time

“We know there is a lot of speculation in regard to the arrest of D’Angelo in New York City this past weekend… We would like his fans and the public at large to know that D’Angelo has pled not guilty – and is contesting the allegations made against him. Also know that, he is in good health and extremely excited about his forthcoming new album.”
– Lindsay Guion (D’Angelo’s manager), official statement

QUESTION:  Is D’Angelo & Angie Stone still together?

LOOK WHO’S BACK!!!
No it’s not Uncle Face… but it is someone who had once said he would retire from the game  (at least if my memory serves me right)

It’s BOW WOW!!!

The rapper turned actor has announced that he will be dropping a DOUBLE ALBUM!

Does he even have that much new material?

“I am here to announce that I will have a double disc album… I have no name yet, but I chose 2 discs in 1 because every album I always say ‘Man I wish the whole album was like my Greenlight mixtapes because everybody loves the Greenlight series.'”
– Bow Wow blog post

This will be the rapper’s 1st release on Cash Money Records

No release date has been announced

DO YOU LIKE CUDI!?
Well if you do… here’s a leak to his new single w/ the doggfather

“I Do My Thing”  by Kid Cudi feat Snoop Dogg

Off of the upcoming album “Cudder: The Revolution of Evolution” … it is rumored that the track is produced by Dr Dre, but instead its by Austin “Watts” Garrick & Rashad “Ringo” Smith

“I recorded the snoop joint that leaked around the time i was workin on MOTM, its a deleted scene that im including on Cudder… I DID NOT LEAK IT and i barely have a name for it so ill let u guys kno whats its really called as soon as i figure it out haha. By the time u hear it on the album it will be a bit diff with a better mix and some other s**t added.”

NWA REUNION?
Not quite… but its close to it!

WOTS… Dr Dre & Ice Cube on a NEW project TOGETHER!!!?

Well contrary to the rumors, the 2 haven’t gotten together to work on Ice Cube’s new album (yet!)

According to Cube…

“I wanna answer a few questions you have for ya’ boy – Beats by Dre? Not yet. Haven’t asked him, but I will”
– Ice Cube, icecube.com

WOW!  (imagine the 2 back together again)

“I Am The West” by Ice Cube is expected to drop this summer
