::Snitchin’- Would you do it?::

April 27, 2007


I don’t know what happen to Hip Hop over the past few years but it is going through a real sudden demise. We have come to a real realization that we do not know how to communicate effectively to the masses with out involving BITCH or HOE.

A few days ago there was a 60 minutes special involving rapper Cam’ron and his statement about Snitchin’.

If you missed some of the reckless things this man has said, he briefly mentioned that he would move from his house if a serial killer lived down stairs from him instead of snitchn’. You have to be kidding me … what did he say? “I would move from my house instead of Snitchin’

This has become an epidemic in the hip hop community-Snitchin. Have we lost our sense of values? Have we lost the understanding of the black family?

Now I do not want to get heavy with the topic but we need to start to understand that we need to be held accountable for our actions.

Hear What Cam’ron has to say

::"Micheal Jordan’s ex wife with a new man"::

April 26, 2007


Now we all know that there is no replacing Micheal Jordan in your household (NO HOMO), but former wife of Jordan , Juanita Jordan is dating a investment banker that she is getting very serious with. I dont knwo if this is the age of “Stella’s” but i need to grab me one ! At least I can say they dont have all the hang up like these damn young girls.

And in AKON & R Kelly situation, you dont have to worry if they are old enough.

Juanita is dating a man nearly 15 years younger then her…. DAMN SHE IS PIMPIN….

Word is that Juanita and new beau, a 29 year old investment banker from the Chicago branch of Credit Suisse, are getting pretty serious. Tells one of Juanita’s pals, “he’s really smart and really good looking – actually he looks a lot like a young Michael [Jordan].”

And the news just keeps getting better for the newly-single Juanita. When her divorce from Michael is finalized in the next few months, Juanita is slated to get close to $200 million in cash and assets.

Akon Investigated For Allegedly Molesting Girl: What is his problem

April 25, 2007

A pastor and father of a 14-year-old girl has defended his daughter, after she engaged in a raunchy dance with singer Akon. During a tour stop in Trinidad, Akon and the girl engaged in a dance that simulated aggressive sexual acts on stage in front of a rambunctious crowd. Pastor Dave Alleyne of the Flaming Word Ministry of Chaguanas told The Trinidad Express that his daughter was not in control of the situation. The girl was one of seven females that joined Akon on stage to compete for a chance to dance with the Senegal-born singer.

Pastor Alleyne did describe the dance of his 14-year-old daughter and Akon as “atrocious.” Many in his church want Akon banned from public performances in the area. In the video, the crowd is seen cheering on both Akon and the girl to dance the way they did.

What is happening with our young men. Now i know that some of these girls do look grown when they are young … but give me a break! Lets have some damn self control . We are already getting the unneeded backlacsh from America and their blame tactics. Men lets step up and have some self control.

But again in Akon’s defense, How did the women get on stage?

What made her feel like she wanted to get on stage?

If she is so young an innocent, why was she there at an Akon concert… We all know that Akon does not have a clean image….despite is success on POP RADIO.

April 19, 2007

After all of the support, blogs and websites that was trying to keep him on , Sanjaya finally fell yesturday in the rigor or his aweful performance. Singing a Bonnie Rait song “give you something to talk about is surely giving me something to talk about.

lets face it , this boy should have been gone along time ago. But looking at the society that we live in , Sanjaya is not far from stardom. This is not the end of his 15 minutes of fame. you will see this joker looking character again…

.:Should Hip Hop Be the Blame?:.

April 18, 2007


The blogs were blazing nearly a week ago about Don Imus’s comments he spouted out on his nationally syndicated radio show. Over the past week there has been a bigger issue that took precedence over DON IMUS (Virginia Tech Shooting) that has gotten Imus off the hook for a minute.

But before the Don Imus tirade nearly fizzled out, the focus of hip hop was attacked by many people. Figurehead from all walks of life, even famous dignitaries and influential people in the African American community in fact.

The big deal was yesterday afternoon, the media Mogul Oprah Winfrey decided to express her deepest sincerity about journalism and took and active stand on having Hip Hop leaders on her show.

As we all know Opfree-I mean Oprah makes it very clear that she does not like hip hop and their misogynistic lyrics that they convey. What was the point of this show? Was it to attack? Was it to dispel the myth? Or was it just an educational debate with educated scholars about the state of black America? All in all , this can be looked at as great strides in our society.

The question arose about Hip Hop taking an active role in standing up and being responsible for some of the blame. Should Hip Hop be the blame? Is the media or others that have an agenda for the demise of hip hop trying to blame hip hop for an escape-goat?

.:ERIKA MARTIN CO-HOSTS STYLE NETWORK’S :.

April 18, 2007


New Show Utilizes a Homeowner’s Favorite Outfit for a Total Room Makeover

Erika Martin, has hit the entertainment and fashion scene with a unique Latina flavor of her own. She is currently co-hosting a brand new show on E! Entertainment Television called “Dress My Nest” with Thom Filicia of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. In each episode Erika and Thom team up to find the interior design that best compliments their guest’s own unique personal style.

In each “Dress My Nest” episode, Filicia and resident fashion expert Erika Martin meet with a lucky fan looking to redesign their living space. They check out the space they want designed and review their wardrobe to help find that “defining outfit.” Then the two experts “hatch the plan”—analyzing the inspirational outfit to determine exactly what it is saying about the homeowner and how it can inspire the décor of the room to be made over.

Erika was recently named one of New York City’s hottest female rockers by Trace Magazine. She previously worked as a co-host on “LatiNation” for CBS Latin News Entertainment. Erika also co-hosted the wildly entertaining makeover show “Trailer Fabulous” on MTV. She has also styled numerous celebrities and has contributed to many national and international advertising campaigns. In addition, Erika will be playing the role of “Marsha”, within two weeks in Los Angeles’ longest running new play “Eavesdropper”.

The multi-talented Erika Martin is a breath of fresh air to reality television. “Dress My Nest” already premiered in March and ratings have already proven that it will quickly become a household favorite. Check your local listings for specific channels and times.

It all rests on the RADIO STATION …says Ithan Payne on of my avid readers of The Hip HOp Publicist Newsletter about the on-going talk about Hip Hop.

Read more of what Ithan says:::::

it all rest on the RADIO STATION AND THE MUSIC PROGRAMER! THEY ARE THE ONES THAT HAVE FINAL SAY SO OVER WHATS BEING PLAYED – IF THE RADIO WON’T PLAY IT IT DOESN’T GET HEARD AND IT DOESN’T SELL – THEN THE LABEL WILL TELL THE ARTIST TO DO WHAT WILL GET PLAYED ON THE AIR!!!! IT’S THAT SIMPLE – TELL THE MUSIC DIRECTORS TO STOP HIDING UNDER THE ROCK OF “OH WE’RE ONLY PLAYIN WHAT THE PEOPLE WANNA HEAR . . . ” THAT BULLSHIT AND THEY KNOW IT – THEY PLAY WHAT THEY ARE PAID TO PLAY AND TAKE NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE REPROCUTIONS – EXAMPLE: YOU CAN NOT TELL ME THAT SOMEONE WASN’T PAID OFF TO PLAY “GEEKED UP” BY FABO – THAT SONG EXPLICITLY PROMOTES COCAINE USE! – BUT THE MUSIC DIRECTOR AT HOT 107.9FM ALLOWED IT TO BE PLAYED – SO DON’T TRIP ON THE ARTIST WHEN YOUR KIDS ARE SITTING IN THE BACK SEAT SING FABO, YING YANG TWINS OR EVEN AKON! THEY HEARD IT ON THE RADIO AND THEY ARE THE ONES RESPONSILE FOR DOWNSLIDE IN THE HIP HOP CULTURE!

PROTEST THE RADIO STATIONS AND TAKE CONTROL OF WHAT IS PLAYED! REGAIN A STANDARD BACK IN OUR CULTURE!
REMEMBER PEOPLE – HIP HOP IS WHAT HAVE BROUGHT TO WESTERN CULTURE AND NO MATTER WHERE I GO IN THE WORLD THAT IS HOW AFRICAN AMERICANS ARE SEEN – THROUGH THE LENS OF HIP HOP – LIKE IT OR NOT!
