You ain’t the only one, Cee. This afternoon during his Old School At Noon set on Hot 97, Big Daddy Kane’s former DJ spoke on the usage of bands at last night’s Hip Hop Honors ceremony. He says he was also disappointed by the exclusion of any mention of Shakir Stewart.
It’s been reported that wrestling Hall of Famer, Captain Lou Albano passed away this morning at age 76. According to the Miami Herald, he was bedridden under hospice care.

Ron Browz’s raps are less than desired. But I gotta admit, this song is a guilty pleasure. In fact, when I was in Miami this past Memorial Day weekend, he was slingin’ “No-Wifin’ In The Club Shirts” on Washington Ave. for $10 a pop…I bought two. Ironic ain’t it?

People love to tell this story again and again about how hard 50 works. I get it, he works hard. We all should. No hard feelings but I missed seeing myself in last night’s Behind The Music. Guess I wasn’t holding my poms poms high enough in front of the camera to make the final cut. Ha!
You rep for my weed carrier group. I’ll rep for yours. Favor for a favor. Ha!
Anyways, on the set of a Triple C’s video, The Bawse and Da Snowman had some interesting things to say about carrying on tradition and their status in the game.
Ross: “To be a part of Def Jam, I feel that the biggest legacies have been lived at Def Jam. From the dudes I love like EPMD, of course the LL Cool Js, of course Jay-Zs—but this is that next run. When you think of the classic tours, the Ruff Ryders, Cash Money tours, I feel like we bubbling and building these brands too. Most definitely, with the moves we making, we both bosses, we gonna keep it like that.”
Jeezy adds: “We’re the new generation of hustlas. New generation of entrepreneurs. We’re the new generation of going out there and getting it from the streets. We’re selling a lifestyle. This is how we live every day. The better you live like that, the better music you sell.”
Is this the part where Antonio puts his feet up?

Guess who’s bizack. Ri-Ri announced on her new Twitter account last night that she’s ready to knock a few cats off the top of the charts this fourth quarter.
