Aug 31 - Hip-Hop Goddess Foxy Brown Blasts Jay-Z Over Lack of Support

Foxy Brown seems to be upset at at Jay-Z for not being there for her while she spent time in jail for a probation violation, even after she showed him so much loyalty when 50 Cent wanted to snatch her from Def Jam.

She tells XXL mag, “There are times when I just really needed him… and he just wasn’t there.”

Shortly after being release from jail Foxy had said, “I’ve been incarcerated for eight months, and Jay’s been everywhere, and he hasn’t mentioned one thing about, ‘Tell her I love her. Tell her to be strong.’ That broke my heart more than anything. When they sent me to jail, I just knew he would be there - everyone came. But he never showed up.”

To the people of the Gulf Coast...

I wish nothing but the best for those about to be struck by Hurricane Gustav. It's eerie how a hurricane is about to strike the same communities that still have the destruction of Katrina fresh on their minds. I pray that this storm does not cause as much damage as its predecessor, but the reports I am reading about the storm are not positive. The last reports states the storm has increased to a category 4 storm with winds over 150 miles per hour.

There are about 6 or 7 classmates of mine that I graduted from college with (who are in New Orleans) and several people I am close to in the Houston area. I pray that they make it through this ordeal with no injuries and their places of living in tact. I also pray that the government is taking the necessary precautions and that the same delayed response does not happen as it did exactly three years ago.

If you have any family/friends/associates in that part of the country, send a prayer up for them and call them to assure that they are in a safe place.

Top 10 Cities to Earn a Living...

Though Houston has plenty of fat cats, this is not a story about America's Most Overweight Cities.

Rather, Houston is recognized here for its dynamic business environment, low unemployment and high wages relative to income. These factors make Houston the best city to earn a living by our calculations.

A record amount of money has been made off oil and commodities this year, and Houston is the American business hub of those industries. Throw in the weak dollar, which allows Houston-based materials companies to glean more cash off exports and increases the price of gasoline, and it's easy to understand why the city excels.

And it's not likely to change anytime soon. When you add up the projected gross state product growth, business openings vs. closings, and venture capital investments in Texas, based on data from Moody's and Pacific Research Institute, the Lone Star state ranks fourth in the country for its future economic prospects.

Right behind Houston are Minneapolis, home to more of the nation's top companies per capita than any other city; Boston, fueled heavily by the biotech industry; and Washington, D.C., where unless the government goes out of business, consulting firms will continue to make a killing.

1. Houston, Texas
2. Minneapolis, Minn.
3. Boston, Mass.
4. Washington, D.C.
5. New York, N.Y.
6. Pittsburgh, Pa.
7. San Francisco, Calif.
8. Dallas, Texas
9. Milwaukee, Wis.
10.Philadelphia, Pa.

King, X...Obama?

It remains to be seen if Barack Obama will indeed become the next President of the United States of America. But if last night was any indication of the time to come, maybe the morale in this country will begin to take a turn for the better. For over 45 minutes last night, the senator from Illinois captivated the world with one of the better political speeches since Dr. King marched on Washington four and a half decades to the day.

On the biggest of all stages, Obama delivered with an eerie like calmness. He set the bar so high for McCain, Bush and the rest of the Republican party that only an Olympic pole vaulter could fathom clearing. During his speech, Obama continued to excel on what may very well be his best quality...the ability to connect with so many people on so many levels. He took the struggles of everyAmerican and projected them in his speech for the world to hear. In essence, taking those pains and broadcasting them to the world was a form of therapy...basically letting them know that a change was coming and they could rest easy.

He even turned many Clinton supporters into the newest members of the "Barack Bandwagon", which many thought would be one of his most difficult tasks. He has the swagger, the charisma, the personality and the view to be the change he so desperately wants to see in America. Since April 4, 1968, many have searched for the next great leader in America. Maybe last night, with the thought of Dr. King, Malcolm X and all those who made the Civil Rights Movement possible, that question was finally answered...

66 days until Election Day...are you registered to vote?

Martin Luther King's "I Have A Dream Speech"

Forty-five years later...M.L.K. still remains arguably the most influential African-American of all time.

In all honesty, this isn't even my favorite King speech (the "Mountaintop" speech still remains my favorite of ALL time), but this is by far his most recognized and most revered. In a time where not only African Americans were experiencing economic hardships and a war that not many knew the real cause for (sort of like today actually), King was the face of the Civil Rights Movement (along with X and the Black Panthers) and he, himself, represented the change he wanted to see in the world.

Forty-five years ago almost to this exact minute, King stood in Washington D.C. and proclaimed to the world that change was coming. It's funny how things come full circle. And tonight, although it's not the nation's capital, Obama will make history in the house John Elway built.

And maybe, just maybe, that "dream" that MLK talked about...can be a little closer to becoming a reality...

Swagger Like Us...

When I woke up this morning I thought about a couple of things. How much I could accomplish today before work and what to blog about. Turning on the TV, MSNBC was covering highlights from the DNC and gearing up for tonight's speech like most other media channels.

I began to reflect on how this political race has just now captured my attention, without Hip Hop's influence. By far, I think John Kerry's speech last night was great. No errors and you could really get a good sense of him believing in what he was saying. His highlights shown on MSNBC were evidence.

Two more things happened this AM. First, I searched Google for politics and hip hop and saw Chris Lightly's article which I disagreed with (I'll touch on this later).

Meka, one of the hosts on MSNBC's morning show basically showed her political stance by displaying her anger of the fact that media coverage surrounding the Obama campaign making history has received unbalanced attention. No doubt, history is taking place. Is it wrong not to cover history as it unfolds?

One could feel inspired by Obama's campaign and feel the need for change. Instinctively, naysayers have come out of nowhere to give their two cents on what Obama should do. Lightly's article does just that. Check it here.

While Hip Hop may embrace Obama, some are not getting why Obama can't acknowledge the Hip Hop community the way Lightly hopes for. While Ludacris' song (Obama Is Here) may be a bit wreckless, I think Nas made a better attempt at focusing a song around Obama. Check it here.

Commentators this morning also said that Obama's speech tonight will be tougher to pull off with it being the anniversary of the "I Have a Dream" speech and the "columns" placed at Invesco Field which will convey a mixed message. I definitely believe that America does not care about stage props.

In the era, criticism can come from many angles. Especially when you have media outlets such as Fox news conjuring up their imposing political agendas. Misleading the population away from whats important seems like a daily goal for them.

Attention needs to be given to what's important in America. No matter what side of the spectrum you are on, there is no doubt American needs change. A different direction...

Guess what I'm watching tonight?

Despite Leakage, T.I. Sets New Record

T.I. establishes the mark for biggest jump to the top of the Billboard Hot 100, as "Whatever You Like" soars 71-1 in its third week on the list. The new chart will be published tomorrow (Aug. 28) on A No. 1 opening on Hot Digital Songs with debut-week sales of 205,000 downloads is the impetus for the record-setting Hot 100 move, which surpasses the 64-1 hike taken by Maroon 5's "Makes Me Wonder" in the May 12, 2007, issue.

"Like" is the rapper's first No. 1 as a lead artist (he was featured on Justin Timberlake's 2006 chart-topper, "My Love") and his opening-week digital sum is the best by a rap track since Nielsen SoundScan began compiling download data in 2003.

The song is also faring well at radio, jumping 33-20 on Hot 100 Airplay and 13-8 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay.

T.I.'s new Grand Hustle/Atlantic album, "Paper Trail," is due Sept. 30. The rapper, who pled guilty to federal weapons charges in conjunction with an October 2007 arrest in Atlanta, will eventually serve a year in jail following the completion of 1,000 hours of community service.

TIP talks about "Swagger Like Us" being leaked...

On Friday, thousands of hip-hop fans might have felt just like the Geto Boys' Bushwick Bill: "Ah man, homie, my mind's playin' tricks on me!" A song called "Swagger Like Us" -- featuring the rap dream team of T.I., Jay-Z, Lil Wayne and Kanye West -- leaked onto the Internet. How could a song so big -- a real song, too, not something a DJ patched together by extracting verses from other records -- just appear out of nowhere?

One of the record's stars has some questions of his own: T.I. would like to know how the song leaked. It's one of the premier records from his forthcoming LP, Paper Trail. The album -- which Tip previewed for MTV News back in May -- isn't due out until September 30, and the King of the South said the cut wasn't supposed to be debuted so soon.

"That's some bullsh--," a disappointed Tip told MTV News Saturday afternoon (August 23) via phone. "I'm beating down the Internet as we speak."

The MC -- who will perform a song from Paper Trail at the MTV Video Music Awards on September 7 -- obviously isn't upset with how well "Swagger Like Us" (or "S.L.U.") turned out or even the immediate positive reaction it's gotten. He just had planned on presenting his song properly rather than having it just thrown out there. He said it could have been "that much bigger" if he'd had the chance to roll it out in grand fashion.

"Don't ruin the event," he lamented. "Wait till the cake comes out the kitchen before you eat it. That's like a kid who sees his toys before Christmas; it takes away from me and I think it takes away from the fans as well. When it's time, I'mma give it to you. They leaked my record with me and The-Dream ["Like I Do"] too. Leakage is never a problem I have had. I'm not used to it."

Tip theorized that the high anticipation for Paper Trail may be the reason why songs such as "S.L.U.," "Like I Do" and "Life of the Party" (the latter isn't even slated to be on the LP) have found their way onto the Internet without his permission, but he quickly said "that's neither here nor there" and moved onto discussing the creation of "S.L.U."

"It's been done about a month," he said. "It was a song that Kanye and I had done first; me featuring Kanye. An idea had presented itself -- 'What if we included these people and made it an event record?' -- and I was like, 'That's a very ambitious idea but a lovely one.' "

Soon after, Hov and Weezy submitted verses. Jay liked the song so much that Tip said it will also appear on Jay's The Blueprint 3 album later this year. He did note that Paper Trail is where it will officially be released first.

"Swagger Like Us" was produced by Kanye West and features a sample of M.I.A.'s ubiquitous "Paper Planes," where she declares "No one on the corner got swagger like us." Kanye, who compares his swagger to singer Mick Jagger, starts off with punchlines aplenty: "I know I got it first/ I'm Christopher Columbus, y'all just the Pilgrims/ How it feel to wake up and be the sh--and the urine?/ Nah-na-na, trying to get that Kobe number, one over Jordan."

Jay follows -- "You can pay for school, but you can't buy class" -- Weezy bats third and Tip is the cleanup hitter. T.I. raps about his real-life controversies and how he doesn't worry about other rappers. "Sell a lot of records, I respect it and salute that/ But spitting real life on hot beats, I'm the truth at/ When you kick it like me, no exaggeration necessary."

In addition to the aforementioned trio of guests, Paper Trail has even more A-list guests: Usher has been added to "My Life, Your Entertainment," Rihanna appears on "Living My Life" and Justin Timberlake joins him on "Dead and Gone."

"I really appreciate it, man," Tip said humbly about the support he's gotten from his peers. "It's definitely an honor man to be among the elite in the game. To have as much respect from them as they have for me is also a privilege. I just wanna live up to all the expectations."

He talked a bit about "Dead and Gone," the Timberlake collaboration. "Basically, man, it's about the lessons I've learned in life, the old me being dead and gone. How I've changed, how my life has taken new meaning."

Surprisingly, a Kanye West cameo has been removed from a song on the album: "Sitting on Top of the World," which features B.O.B. from T.I.'s Grand Hustle label.

"Kanye's verse has been swapped," Tip said. "I still have Kanye's verse so maybe we'll a remix down the line."

T.I.'s current video and single is "Whatever You Like." Videos have also been shot for "Swing Your Rag" and "What Up."

Michelle Obama DELIVERS Powerful Speech


No, this has nothing to do with music and no those videos will not have a Lil' Wayne guest verse or a T-Pain assisted hook (although that's not a bad idea for the remix). For those who did not see Michelle Obama give her speech at the opening night of the Democratic National Convention, they missed quite possibly one of the best speeches in recent memory. It wasn't just the oh "my husband will do this once he gets in office"...rather it was the potential First Lady giving a heartfelt and passionate speech about where Obama came from...not just the man you associate with "change". She talked about her father battling multiple sclerosis and him awaking an hour early every morning just so he could go to work. She touched on how her husband was a nervous wreck driving her and their first born daughter back from the hospital.

That is just what many people not only wanted to hear, but NEEDED to hear. All too often in politics it's a game about what one person can do if they get picked...which is the nature of the game. But rarely do you get a candidate who can empathize with the public on such a personal level. It was REAL, something you don't get to often in politics. She related to the person who is working 35 hours a day to make ends the person who is unemployed and can't find work anywhere in the family who is trying to do right in a world full of wrongs. She stood there proud, she stood there strong...she stood there as a proud, strong BLACK WOMAN...a polar opposite from what is portrayed on a day-to-day basis.

Now who knows what the Obamas will if the election swings their way...I just hope they deliver on all this talk. But even if it was for one night only, I finally do have hope...which I haven't really had about America in quite some time...

Hopefully Sam Cooke will be right this time...change is gonna come…

Yung Berg gets chain snatched and BEAT DOWN


I received an email yesterday night that stated Yung Berg (affectionately known as "Light Butt" on this blog) caught a beat down at a club in Detroit. Before running with it, I decided to check some sources to validate if the story was true and I found out that he indeed caught a beat down. Here's what happened:

Yung Berg flew into Detroit late friday night for Hot 102.7's annual Summer Jamz concert but instead of going straight to his hotel as scheduled, he made a pit stop at a club called Plan B, which i'm hearing is partially owned by Detroit rapper Trick Trick. Now mind you, Berg didn't tell his label, his management or anyone that he was about to sneak off to the club.

Within minutes of getting inside the club, both Yung Berg and Cap (the person he met up with) were attacked by a group of men affiliated with Trick Trick. I am hearing that Trick Trick was NOT a part of the beat down. In fact, he helped break the fight up. Yung Berg's security quickly scooped him off the ground and rushed him onto Cap's tour bus that was parked right outside of the club. His transformer chain (pictured above) was indeed snatched during the mayhem. He was then taken to his hotel but did not receive any medical attention. He only suffered minor cuts and bruises and of course he's a** was in total shock. He literally landed in Detroit and within that same hour caught a beat down. "Welcome To The Detroit"!

By this time, Berg wanted to get the hell out of dodge, so arrangements were made and he was put on a plane back home. To all the Detroit fans that were disappointed that he didn't perform, he really wanted to please his fans but when +$% like this go down, please understand "it's time to go".

As far as the cause of the beat down, Yung Berg apparently said something in the past that was very disrespectful about Detroit rappers and Detroit don't play that. Not sure if you remember, but Trick Daddy ended up catching it in Detroit by Trick Trick a few years ago.

Lesson Learned: Don't say sh*t about Detroit, unless you want to suffer some consequences.
