Lil Wayne Sets The Record Straight On DJ Diss


When I first heard that
Wayne dissed mixtape DJ's in some magazine my first thought was 'talk about biting the hand that feeds you' plus what a stupid, arrogant prick Wayne had become. But then he calls into DJ Drama's show, expands on what he meant and actually makes a good point about how some amateur DJ's be using him to get some shine for themselves based on his hard work:

After Lil’ Wayne torched the mixtape scene with scathing comments in an interview with Foundation Magazine [click to read], the entire mixtape scene was up in arms. Even the legendary DJ Doo Wop decided to get in on the mix and fire back at Weezy F Baby [click to read]. Late last night, Lil Wayne called in to DJ Drama’s Shade 45 Sirius Satellite Radio show to explain his position to the world.

“First off I ain’t mean to disrespect no deejays, no mixtape deejays, whatever kind of deejay you is, there was no kind of disrespect,” Wayne said on the air. “Especially given the fact that me and Drama, me and [DJ] Khaled and me and my homeboy Raj Smooth from New Orleans, we all get it in and do the mixtape thing. So given that fact, I think things were blew out of proportion."

Many may know that Wayne has been a fixture in the mixtape scene and recorded some of his most popular work with the likes of DJ Drama, Smoov and DJ Khaled. So who exactly was Wayne coming after with those sentiments?

“This Empire nigga, I don’t fuck with him. For all deejays I just want you to know that [the diss] was meant for that Empire nigga. I don’t fuck the Empire nigga. The nigga put a CD out on me every month and I couldn’t tell you how none of them niggas look in person,” Weezy said in regard to Worldwide Legacy’s brand of mixtapes. There is a popular series produced by The Empire titled The Drought Is Over which has been making its rounds in mixtape circles for some time.

Too bad for Wayne some yahoos had to get personal and leak his new album, but I predict that he'll still go platinum twice at least, esp. considering that its been so long since he last put out an official LP.

50 Cent Babymama's House Burned To Ground



The drama between 50 Cent and his babymama is getting crazier and crazier as the $1.4million Long Island mansion at the center of his and Shaniqua’s legal battle burned to the ground early this morning. Fire officials are calling the blaze “definitely suspicious":

An eyewitness told Newsday that among the injured, all of whom suffered smoke inhalation according to fire officials, were 50 Cent’s ex-girlfriend, Shaniqua Tompkins, and their 10-year-old son, Marquise.

“She was all right,” eyewitness Frank Hoyte, a Newsday employee, said, adding: “But she was angry.”

He said Tompkins was standing outside the home barefoot as it burned, wearing a bathrobe. Two young boys, one of them Marquise, two teenage girls and “an older woman” were also standing with Tompkins, Hoyte said.

Thank goodness nobody was hurt, but you just know there's gonna be much more to this story esp. what with 50 already being labeled as a "suspect".

Why Is Jennifer Hudson In "Sex and the City"?


Seriously, I used watch the series and can hardly ever recall black people being in the show, much less having any decent roles. Then too playing an 'assistant' is so obviously degrading....just a bad move (or strictly $$$ move) by Jennifer in my opinion:

Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson admits that she had not watched Sex And The City during its original run on HBO, though she was aware of it. Since being cast as character Carrie Bradshaw's assistant in the big-screen version, she has lived with all six seasons on DVD and become an avid fan.

Hudson explained: "I didn't know that much about it, I've never really watched it, so once I got called -- oh yeah -- for the audition and got sent the script that's when I fell in love with it and I started watching it from there and that's when I became addicted."

The actress and singer explained that shooting Sex And The City on the streets of New York City was a challenge after the closed sets of Dreamgirls. Hudson said: "I just did Dreamgirls and it's in a stage and there was never anyone around and if we did shoot outside it was extras that was in the scenes with us. Well here, New York was the extras. So, I had a scene coming and I think it was one of my first days, and I had to come out of the subway. And people were stopping me getting off the subway, 'Oh my God, you're Jennifer Hudson, can I get an autograph and a picture?'And I'm like, 'I'm in the middle of a scene! I'm not Jennifer right now.'"

Sex And The City reunites series regulars Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis, and Chris Noth and opens in theaters on Friday, May 30th.

Eminem To Be Featured On New G-Unit Album?


It's MediaTakeOut so feel free to raise your eyebrows:

If you were anxiously awaiting the summer release of the new G-Unit album, you'll love this. MediaTakeOut.com spoke with a member of 50's clan who told us that rapper Eminem will be featured "prominently" on the album.

And there's more. According to the insider, Em might even be out promoting the album with 50 - doing performances and TV appearances.

Can't wait to see what he looks like ... and sounds like ...
Personally I don't blame Eminem for taking a break what with his best friend dying last year, another divorce from his baby's mom the year before and just all the stress that comes with the record industry. Yet, what with record sales being in the tank like they are, you just know there's gonna be a huge buzz around this record if this news is true.

Shay "Buckeey" Johnson Has A Sex Tape Out


Shay was always my favorite from the "Flavor of Love" shows not just because of her exquisite, all-around sexiness, but how she kept it real with everybody without being too ghetto, even getting in the face of that superbitch Bootz when she had to. But the more I hear about her skankiness, the more I lose respect for her. And now comes this news:

“MediaTakeOut.com has just learned that Shay “Buckeey” Johnson allegedly has an explicit tape of her and her ex-boyfriend. And while we can’t authenticate the tape fully. It sure as heck looks like her ….” [Link]
Damn.

Usher Says His Marriage Is Fine


Good. I can sleep tonight:
A minor-league blog might be saying "yeah," but Usher's people are saying "absolutely not." The R&B star's manager calls an anonymously sourced breakup report on the website theybf.com "100 percent not true."

"Usher and Tameka are currently traveling in Europe together as a family on his promotional tour," Benny Medina told E! News. "This rumor is completely false."

Not to mention, Tameka—who's also the mother of 6-month-old Usher Raymond V—was spotted with her hubby of nearly nine months at an MTV taping on Sunday.


But, if nothing else, with Usher's marital life squared away, that leaves his fans free to talk about that upcoming album release on Tuesday, eh?
By the way and for the record, I don't care how much flack she gets for supposedly being a bitch, Tameka Foster is one independent, smart and very sexy lady.

Flavor Flav Chooses Thing 2


You just knew that Flav was gonna pick Thing 2 after he brought her all the way back to Paris and esp. after he dumped Sinceer (who I think loved Flav as much as Thing 2, but was obviously much more crazy). He just kept around for her looks and a chance to bone her.

Justin Timberlake To Propose To Jessica Biel


Apparently Justin's 27 now and wants to settle down, which tells me that that rich bitch Cameron Diaz didn't want any kids:
Justin Timberlake is planning to propose to Jessica Biel. The singer is going to pop the question to the ‘I Now Pronounce You Chuck And Larry’ actress, who sparked rumors she is pregnant after she recently stopped drinking.

A source said: “
Justin is 27 and thinking about marriage and kids. For the first time in his life he is feeling settled and has definitely decided to pop the question to Jessica.

He is so happy with her. They spent quite a bit of time apart recently when Justin was working with Madonna. That made him certain Jessica was the person he wanted to spend the rest of his life with.”
Good for Justin and Jessica! I only hope they won't get all corny and have all their kid names start with a 'J'.

R. Kelly Still Trying To Stall Trial


It's been six years since Robert got charged with all those sex crimes and now with the trial finally getting some jury members on board, Robert's still playing games:

CHICAGO (AP) — Jury selection was completed at R. Kelly's child pornography trial Thursday amid contentious exchanges between prosecutors and defense attorneys, who accused each other of trying to stack the panel along racial lines.

Of the 12 jurors who will open the case, eight are white and four are black. The four alternates include two blacks, one Hispanic and one white.

Defense attorneys objected several times as prosecutors used challenges to have several blacks dismissed from the jury pool.

"I think they're using these (challenges) to get rid of African Americans," said Sam Adam Sr., one of Kelly's attorneys. A little later, he complained that "they've used 50 percent of their challenges on African Americans."

Amazing. And somehow, someway, you just know that the prosecution is going to find some way to mess this up even more with all their ghetto witnesses.

Foxy Brown Gets Off Easy


Amazing. Bitch gets "time served" for beating up some chick with a phone who dared to complain about her playing music too loud.

Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey?!?


Considering his B-list career (I'll give him credit for "Drumline" but not much else) Nick Cannon has done a great job at picking up hot chicks in the industry: Kim Kardashian, Selita Ebanks, Christina Milian and now Mariah Carey. Well you know what they say about skinny dudes...must be true.

Assault Victim Suing Foxy Brown


About time one of these victims of Foxy Brown's ghetto rage step up to the plate and sue her dumb ass:

A Brooklyn woman who claims she was assaulted by Foxy Brown with a Blackberry cell phone has filed a lawsuit against the rapper.

As reported earlier, Arlene Raymond filed a complaint against Brown last year claiming that the Brooklyn bred rapper hit her in the face with a Blackberry cell phone during an argument.

Brown would turn herself in and would be charged with felony assault, menacing, harassment and criminal possession of a weapon. She would be released on $5,000 bail.

According to The New York Post, Raymond filed her suit against Brown yesterday (May 2) and is seeking unspecified damages.

Next up needs to be one of Busta's Rhymes many assault victims.
