This is by far the funniest shit I’ve heard all month. ABC News reports that Styles P went and got into a little road rage incident this past weekend:

The 32-year-old, whose real name is David Styles, told police his 2003 Mercedes-Benz was cut off by a truck on Saw Mill River Road on Saturday afternoon.

He said he then cut off the truck, got out and threw napkins at the window.

As he was getting back in his car, Styles told police that truck rammed him.

The rapper’s left leg was broken and he was taken to Westchester Medical Center for treatment.

The driver, 50-year-old John Henson, was charged with second-degree assault.

He told police he was not aware he had cut off Styles’ car and that he was "in fear for his safety" when Styles got back into his car after throwing the napkins, according to a police report.  

I can’t believe this guy made it out of this situation without any kind of charge.  Get well soon Ghost, and next time just spit in dude’s window and keep it moving.

Sean Price – P-Body

Wednesday, December 27th, 2006

Here’s the first leaked track from Jesus Price Superstar which, incidentally, I got a chance to hear in it’s entirety about a week and a half ago on a party bus (long story). As usual, I was imbibing copious amounts of alcohol while I was listening, plus Sean P’s man has some purple that’ll have your eyes looking violet, so I’m gonna hold off on saying that it’s a better effort than Monkey Bars until I get another listen. I will say that it bangs in usual Sean P fashion and features standout appearances from Rock and Steele as well as Buckshot and Phonte of Little Brother. If you fucks with Sean P, you won’t be disappointed. If you don’t, then you are a disappointment.

Hip Hop Lives

In case you haven’t heard:

Nas scores his third No. 1 on The Billboard 200 this week with his eighth studio set, "Hip Hop Is Dead." The Def Jam effort moved 355,000 copies last week in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The rapper’s last effort, "Street’s Disciple," peaked at No. 5 on the chart. Nas’ two other sets to take the summit were 1999′s "I Am… The Autobiography" and 1996′s "It Was Written." 

Personally, I’m proud of the Little Homey. He stepped up and made a much better album than Street’s Disciple and people went out and copped’s as simple as that.

Let’s talk about it.
