JUST WHEN YOU THOUGHT YOU HAD ONE MORE CHECK !!!

February 6, 2008

Rolling Stone reports Warner Music Group has offered to purchase the entire Death Row Records catalogue for 25-million dollars. The catalogue features albums like Dr. Dre’s The Chronic and Snoop Dogg’s Doggy Style.

I don’t know if this is a smart sale for Mr. Red Devil (Suge Knight) but he has been offered a hefty sum of money for some very valuable things to him.

What would Suge do if he didn’t have this catalog?

We took the liberty to make a list of some of the occupations Suge knight would have if not holding on to this catalog:

  • A Manager at Fat Burger (saying: Welcome to the good burger, home of the good burger, MAY I TAKE YORU ORDER PLEASE?”)
  • Probably a body guard at a Bay area Strip Club
  • Probably doing hair in a salon in Rikers Island ( “A Suge can you braid me up man?”

    We all know that Missy has not dropped an album in forever, now she is resulting in some randomness. I guess this is what you do when you have no street cred anymore.

    According to the Hollywood Reporter, Walt Disney Studios is creating a stereoscopic 3-D video for Missy that combines the tunes “Ching-a-Ling” and “Shake Your Pom Pom” from the upcoming soundtrack to the movie Step Up 2: The Streets. The video will premiere on MTV’s TRL on Monday.

    This has come to a surprise to us but the music industry downloading craze is just about to heat up !Sony BMG has confirmed that they have made an agreement that will allow Amazon.com to sell tracks from their artists without copy protection. That means that the songs can be played on any portable music player. According to the BBC, all of Sony’s catalog will appear on Amazon’s MP3 store by the end of January. It makes Amazon the only company to be selling MP3s from the four major music companies without the copy protection, immediately making the online store a far more significant rival of Apple’s iTunes.

    I guess Jigga-man is not worried about any of the recent woes about him leaving Def Jam because he plans to open locations of his sports club in Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago, London and Houston. We know some of our Atlanta folks are mad that he is not coming to Atlanta but really is the Atlanta market ready for it. Every time something opens in ATL it gets played out in 2 months. Then all the promoters in Atlanta want a piece of it by that time it is slutted out in less then 6mths. LMAO !

    They hope to have all of the opening a smash because the last one drew out stars like; Pauly Shore, Beyonce, Robin Thicke and Al Sharpton were among those in attendance for the celebration.
