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.

To help plug the Big Pun: The Legacy DVD (I still need to get my copy), the Doggfather pays homage to The Punisher. Peep his interesting take on Mr. Rios’ current status in hip-hop history.
“I feel like Big Pun’s memory has been put aside in a treasured way and not in a distasteful way. A lot of people doin’ songs with Tupac and Biggie that they probably wouldn’t have never fuck with. So that disrespects their whole likeness. So Pun’s memory is still untarnished because it’s not highly publicized. It’s precious because you only remember the moments that you’ve seen him on this Earth.”
Guess Calvin’s immune to any and all of Liza’s fuckery.

Here’s a final taste from the “Common and Friends” gala this past Saturday. How ’bout some crisp soundboard audio courtesy of All The Way Live? In one of the many highlights of the evening, Luda and Nas join forces for the culture. Once again, no Hova. No problem. No shots.

After a weekend filled with car accident rumors and food poisoning claims, Fab continues to give his all into his Twitter account and tonight revealed that he’s been quietly filming a pilot. Don’t worry no tonguing chicks down here; in fact, the premise revolves around familia.
Hey I’ve done a couple reality shows. Fab is cool and his son is light-skinned. I’m all for it. Ha!

This past weekend, Mrs. Carter put Lindsay Lohan in check (allegedly. Ha!) and, more importantly, gave a super performance of her biggest solo hit at Singapore’s F1 Rocks concert. B in HD, FTW! No guest Hova appearance. No problem.

First Miss Info speculated, then Vibe spoke to 2/4ths of Slaughterhouse, and now Royce provides the 1515 Boys with some insight into the behind-the-scenes talks about the possibility of his group joining Eminem’s label.
“It’s very much what it looks like,” Royce said of Slaughterhouse joining forces with Eminem. “That’s always a possibility. It’s conversations being had, very good conversations. I just did an interview recently and they asked me to a address the rumors. I said, ‘Rumors are what they are, people see things and they jump to a conclusion.’ I never said it wasn’t going to happen — I left it right there in the middle. I think it would be a great thing if it could happen.”
“I’ve been talking to Em and Paul for a long time,” Royce added. “With this particular situation, things are falling into place. Everything is in place where it’s supposed to be. I’m very prepared [for] when the opportunity presented itself. It’s a time where there’s things they need over here and certain things we need in order to move over there. I think it’s a good marriage. Like I said, I just hope it can happen.”
My Jewish partner would never give me a straight answer about this. Call me a hater, but I don’t think this is really gonna happen. Sorry.

Whether those nuptials were real or staged, one thing that’s undisputed about Lamar and Khloe’s big day was that they chose a great DJ to tear down their reception. And I thought I had a gold star for gettin’ Just Blaze. SMH. Ha!
