We had a whole lot of superstars on this stage here tonight. But this is… Papoose's house? We're all still reeling that the 20th anniversary of Hip-Hop's Super Bowl featured the Nacirema Dream as a headliner. Damn you Kendrick Lamar and your generous ways. Yeah it's hip-hop to bum rush the show but c'mon Pap you know you didn't deserve that look. And you gave even less fucks by performing a new song. C'mon fam. You've paid a lot of dues through the years but this was the big dawg time in the program. Don't disrespect the game in your pursuit for fame. Oh well, Brooklyn took it.
You Played Yourself
Speaking of BK, Fab had a master plan of bringing Lil Kim and Foxy Brown back together again. But when it was time to make history, Fox Boogie was nowhere to be found. Where was you at? Wack.

“Our DJ’s don’t make it no better neither…You gon’ talk about we need to hip-hop back, but yet you the muthafucka that spinning the shit 100 times a day. And then when we ask why you spinning it, because ‘Yo, that’s what the people’s calling for.’ They wouldn’t be calling for shit if you wasn’t playing it.”
Basically, it’s a trite subject, but Ghost always brings a fresh perspective. Here he speaks on the culture’s devolution. Starks is right, we have got to do better.

So after all this foolery, I just got a press release saying Ri-Ri’s album is called Rated R. Yup, the same info leaked months ago. The fine folks at IDJ deny that the image above is the final cover. Isn’t it time for the single already?

Justin interrupts a terrible interview to let the world know that he is in fact cookin’ up some marvelous things with Marshall Mathers.
“Now that he’s put it out there, I am working with Eminem on his new album. We are working on Relapse 2 pretty heavily. As of yesterday, we’ve done about six or seven records. I go back in with him in a couple of weeks and do three or four more maybe. I’ve been quietly goin’ back forth from New York to Detroit the past two months. Just gettin’ a feel for it and gettin’ a feel for working with each other. He hasn’t worked with too many people outside his camp. I haven’t worked with him before. We got a good working relationship now. A good friendship now so the records is comin’ out good.”

Yup I don’t fuck with dude’s Obama diss, but hey new rap is new rap, and I got a job to do. In case you missed it Sunday night, Peter Rosenberg had an action-packed hip-hop show which included new material from Scooter Braun’s property. Hate it or love it, this white dude can still flow.
