Jay-Z Rolling Stone Cover

Wednesday, November 30th, 2005


Cover of Rolling Stone? Check. 

In a corner of Jay’s office, on the floor, there’s a street sign that says MARCY AVE., a remnant from his days in the Marcy projects. And on his desk, in the center, is the Best Rap Solo Performance Grammy he won for "99 Problems," the guitar-heavy 2003 single produced by Rick Rubin from the CD that announced Jay’s retirement as a recording artist, The Black Album. The Grammy arrived a few days ago, and he decided to let it sit on his desk for a moment before bringing it home. Six years ago, Jay boycotted the Grammy Awards, saying, "Too many major rap artists continue to be overlooked." Not anymore. "I didn’t care about Grammys until we won one," he says. This is his fourth. Beyonce has eight. He says she teases him about having so few.

Go Shorty…

Wednesday, November 30th, 2005


…it’s your Bat Mitzvah.

For his estimated $500,000, I hear that 50 Cent performed only four or five songs – and badly – though he did manage to work in the lyric, "Go shorty, it’s your bat miztvah, we gonna party like it’s your bat mitzvah."

At one point, I’m told, one of Fitty’s beefy bodyguards blocked shots of his boss performing and batted down the kids’ cameras, shouting "No pictures! No pictures!" – even preventing Brooks’ personal videographers and photographers from capturing 50 Cent’s bat-miztvah moment.

"Fitty and his posse smelled like an open bottle of Hennessy," a witness told told me, adding that when the departing rapper prepared to enter his limo in the loading dock, a naked woman was spotted inside. – NYDN

Kanye on Barbara Walters Tonight

Wednesday, November 30th, 2005


Oh boy, you just know some classic statements are gonna be made during this interview. We already know that Kanye kept it gangsta and didn’t back down from his Bush comments (which I would hope he wouldn’t), but who knows what egomaniacal statements this guy is gonna utter with a straight face. The reason for the interview is Kanye has been selected by Walters as one 2005′s Most Fascinating People.

From the interview:

Barbara Walters: “During a telethon for Hurricane Katrina, Kanye caused a storm of his own.”

Kanye West on the telethon: “George Bush doesn’t care about black people.”

Walters to West: “Do you think what you said then you still feel today?”

West: “I spoke from, I spoke from my heart, and I stand by my statement.”

This should be interesting. I hear Barbara also spits a freestyle and works the boards in the studio with Kanyeezy.

Notorious party girl and all around Hollywood slut and alcoholic Lindsay Lohan got her grind on with Juelz Santana on Jay Leno the other night.  Even funnier to me though is how Juelz had his trademark ad-lib ‘A!’ encrusted with diamonds and turned into a pendant for his chain. Say what you want about Dipset but they broke the mold when they made these guys. (Pic jacked from The Fader)

Damian Marley ft. Nas – Road to Zion *Video*

Road to Zion – Damian Marley ft. Nas  

The video for Damian Marley’s Road to Zion featuring Nas. Good video, but I had to laugh at George Clinton and The Game being locked up with Nas, and Damian handing out postcards with the Lion of Judah on them(??). After Nas analyzes the card, he manages to escape the prison he’s in and reunite with the young Marley back in a project hallway. At that point the video ends, but there’s no doubt these two righteous men hung around burning incense, praising Jah, and chanting down babylon.
