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.
On the set of a photo shoot for her new album, AK reveals to AP at the 1:28 mark that she’s planting her flag on the Internets. Damn, more competition.
“I felt there’s a missing piece in the blog world that allows you to have a really, inspiring positive experience. We don’t have to tear each other down to have a good time… It really calls out to all those brilliant, amazing, fantastic women every day that are doing their thing and need kind of a community to support each other.”
And you thought she’d go back and forth with you-know-who. SMH. Ha.

Once upon a time, Joe Budden was billed as The Streetz # 1 Draft Pick. After a string of mixtape releases, Def Jam added him to their roster in 2001 and two years later released his self-titled debut. A VH1 special soon followed (Anyone remember that?!) and the disc clocked at 429,158 after spawning three singles (“Pump It Up” , “Focus”, and “Fire”). Unfortunately, Def Jam stunted his follow up, The Growth and he was dropped in 2007.
For his skill set, the album was average. Although there were standouts like “10 Minutes” and “Calm Down,” the overall project lacked replay value. When was the last time you bumped “Ma Ma Ma”? Since then, he’s released a bunch of street albums, joined a group, and increased his profile thanks to vlogs and ex-girlfriend, Tahiry Jose. The End.

Here’s a taste of chocolate, Big Daddy Kane, performing as the surprise act at the Hennessy Artist Series stop in Houston. Common and The Roots bring the fun to the NYC tonight which I’m sure will include a gang of guests. If I’m not too lazy, I might stop by.
