Move over kanye and 50, another girl fight is on deck!..MEOWWWWW!!!....An official release date for Britney Spears untitled album has been set for November 13th, the EXACT same day as Alicia Keys "As I Am" is scheduled to be released....My 2 cents on things? Alicia will come out on top with ATLEAST 200,000 over Britney...yesss britney has fans and blah blah blah....but her last 2 albums were a FAR CRY from the monumental success, and opening week, of her "Oops, i did it again" album, and ontop of that..the bish is crazy...at this point in her career more people are focused on britney the trainwreck rather than britney the recording artist(or whatever the hell she considers herself)...and that equals magazine covers, NOT album sales.
Celine Dion will be dropping her new album "Taking Chances" on November 13th aswell...ehhh atleast we kno whos gonna be holdin down the number 3 spot *shrugs*....
Hell since everybody is eyeing November 13th for their release date...i think imma cash in too! look forword to my debut album tentatively titled "PuppykissesKittenpaws: The Album. Love, Lies, and Lacefronts Vol. 1"....with special guest including Papoose, Remy Ma, atleast 1 dead rapper, the homeless guy that roams around the Arco Gas station, and CeCe Winans(cuzz we all need that 1 track for the lawd)... britney and alicia dont want none

Now supposedly this is for a Lane Bryant ad or something, im not sure how accurate that info is (i honestly dont feel like goin all columbo to see if its true or not either)..i doubt it is tho, Lane Bryant be havin some sassy shit now...but whatever its for, Bish still fierce...did u guys kno that she is the ONLY winner of americas next top model to have her contract renewed with Covergirl?...basically they said WOMP WOMP to all the other gals after the initial ad, thats always shot on the last episode of ANTM, ran...learn somethin new everyday
Now this is how i like my jill...served up fierce with a side of sass....this is an absolutely beautiful album cover, without her even trying..i love it....the delux edition is what I will be purchasing...LEGALLY!...no coppin her shit from the "cd man" infront of the donut shop!...take yall happy ass on to the virgin megastore, or where ever....pretend that beyonce is comin out with a brand new album!, cuzz u kno somewhere in the world her ass most likely is... Im still alil salty about the original album cover...when i see it all i hear is "IS YA, IS YA, IS YA HUNGRAY!?!...WHY YES IAM!" but still, Jill can do NO WRONG in my eyes...Now go mosey on over to Crunk N Disorderly to take a gander at the tracklisting for "The Real Thing"....droppin September 25th.....September 25th.....September 25th......September 25th....September 25th.....September 25th....ahem...TEAM JILL!!!!
Big Girls Dont Cry....but grown men do....
Fergie has further proved that America is at an all time wackness when it comes to music by climbing up to The number 1 spot on the billboard 100. This week she is followed by the bane of my existence, Souljah Boy, with the song that is sure to melt the brain cells of our youth "crank that". In better news, Kanye's "stronger" climbs up to the 3rd spot, which means im one step closer toward seeing 50 cent sling his future albums out the back of his la sabre on crenshaw and western...*crosses fingers* oh, from my mouth to God's ears

So on my daily trip over to Toyas World i seen that Ms Keys is finally giving a sneak peak of her new look and her new track "No One"that shes HYPED UP for MONTHS now...honestly, the way the chile was carryin on u could swear up and down Jesus was on back up!....i absolutely adore the new promo pics, classy, tasteful and Alicia looks absolutely flawless in both of them...which only means her actual album cover will probably be her sitting on the toilet or some other dumb unflattering type shit that will be deemed as "deep"...but about the song...from the EXTREMELY small clip that she put out..i must admit im underwhelmed...i think from reading her blog and looking at the updates of the project she would post up, i was expecting somethin that would make me fall INLOVE with R&b music all over again, make me immediately fall inlove with it, the way "U Dont Kno My Name" did.... Ofcourse im still buying the album because i believe it will be hot....but this "No One" is not it...what do u guys think?
Here polow just thought..this beat is SOOOO hot he has to give it to as many bishes as humanly possible...when kelis originally had the beat i must admit, i liked it...but once he switched it up alil to throw at chilli, he realized that no one either heard, or gave a shit about chillis version, or chilli in general.... so he passed it to everyones favorite Badussy Cat Doll...Nicole Scherewtdgsdoinnaziginger...for shame polow...for shame
Take a Listen to them all for urself....
Nicole - Whatever U Like
Chili - Straight Jack Em
Kelis - Blind fold Me
Now i never got this cat...when everyone was singin his praises and pissin the sheets over him i was feeling as if i were left out of the loop...Yes "Be without you" was an undeniable hit, BUT if it was anyone else other than mary can u say it would have had the same effect??...his productions do NOTHING for me..midtempo, ballad, or club banger..it just doesnt move me...but once i heard him REPEATEDLY use this piano driven beat for a Soul music icon, a nobody and Danity Lame i knew...he must be STOPPED...
Mary j blige - We Ride
Marques houston - Circles
Danity Kane - Ride For U
I use to be a BIG rich harrison fan, BEFORE he created the ass shaking phenomenom that was "Crazy In love"....ofcourse the song was something infectious that grew on you, if it didnt catch u from the first listen..but after that it seem like he found a sound that sold and he went CRAZY with it...i miss the versatility in his production...the man made the beat to "beautiful ones" by Mary J, and ALL the beats on one of the most under rated albums in R&b music..."All I have" by Amerie...now im not saying it went all downhill after crazy in love...but it just all seemed to sound like one big GoGo percussive mash up that would never end.. I kno producers can have a signature sound, but theres a difference between having a sound all your own and just regurgitating the same thing over and over with alil difference here and there....and sadly i think Rich has fallen into the latter category
Amerie - One Thing
Toni Braxton - Take This Ring
Missy Elliot - Cant Stop
Thats why when it comes to producers i stick with Raphael Saadiq(Genius), Wil.I.Am(when he doesnt cater to the Laguna Beach Crowd), and Salaam Remi(dont kno? u betta ask somebody)...all the other big names usually put out uninspired, typical, watered down songs that are generally forgettable...but what do u guys think? what are some of your favorite producers?? any producers u think i left out??? yes im aware that this may cause u guys to comment..i kno i kno...God forbid! *hisses @ yall*
The world can rejoice, its TYRA TIME again! heres a sneak peek at the new snatches for this cycle of top model..they all look one elimination away from workin the counter at claire's if u ask me...nothin special at all...and not too sure about the lost in space meets ho stroll theme of this pic either...but thats the magic of tyra, she loves a blank canvas...and pastries..Oh how i do look forword to rich's recap over at FourFour
that ebony looks like she up to no damn good

Or should i just say the rock? anyhoo... britian mess and STILL all around fierce bitch, Amy Winehouse and her husband decided to reinact the limo scene from "whats love got to do with it" yesterday....heres a snippet of what happened..
"The fight in the early hours of yesterday left 23-year-old Miss Winehouse with blood staining her pink ballet shoes and the knees of her jeans.
Purple bruises could be seen on the side of her neck and her knuckles were swollen.
But her 24-year-old husband appeared to have come off a lot worse - with cuts and scratches on both cheeks and around his neck. "
im sorry but LMAO! @ the picture of her ballerina slippers all fucked up...that should show her ass to put some real damn shoes on...stilettos dont stain like that girly!, getchu some fierceness in yo life amy...hell, and some stability while u at it
In sad sad news, Television Evangelist Juanita Bynum got ike'd the other night by her estranged husband in the parking lot of the Renaissance Concourse Hotel ...now while i tell a joke every now and then, domestic violence is never a laughing matter..i pray juanita successfully recovers and makes it through this, because this too shall pass...HALLELUJAH HOLLABACK!

Lil Fizz recently wasted his time by trying to put the good word out there about his
and yes, i kno im wrong for pickin that brokeback mountainish pic up above...but theyre even more wrong for reinacting the movie scene for scene so *shrugs*
Source: Media Take Out
Word on the blog street is that in the latest issue of "Fashion Rocks" magazine, Jennifer hudson was quoted as saying this about her new album...
"It's not hip-hop," she says firmly. "Let's just say that. I don't have anything against it, but it's not the music that I like to sing. There’s some pop in there, and some R&B-soul, but," she pauses for emphasis, "not hip-hop."
that lil snippet from the magazine is already making people piss the sheets...hell its HER album and if she doesn't wany young jeezy in the background yellin YEAHHHHHHHHHH then its her choice... personally i cant say i blame her..half the niggas in the game now SUCK any damn way..maybe shes actually tryna make music that will stand the test of time, instead of being just some banger of the moment that will be forgotten in a month or 2, which is pretty much the state of hiphop at the moment, (how U durin jim jones?!?!)...so on that note jennifer, i say SING! sing ur little heart out girl....as if Clive davis is hiding the last cup of gravy from u and holding it ransom unless u hit an earth shattering note!!!!
The funny people over at The Real has taken us behind the scenes of the top secret round table behind the Rkelly writing process....funny stuff...lmao @ a durango
Make sure u check out their blog and take a gander at some of the other funny clips.. The Lloyd Banks Retirement Party is my personal favorite...and dont feel bad guys, i thought he was retiring too...not like hes doing anything else :-/

"After a five-year absence from The Billboard 200, UGK returns to the tally in a big way as "Underground Kingz" debuts at No. 1. The hip-hop troupe's first chart-topper, the Jive set moved 160,000 copies in the United States"
congrats to ugk, definately well deserved and long overdue..but check out the number 2 spot..plies came in selling ONLY 96,000...great for him, but not so great that an album selling less than 100,000 can debute at the number 2 spot...im hoping the BIG fall line up can put some life back into the charts, shits been DEAD for months...
Yes gotdammit, im a Jlo fan...get over it...this song "Do it well" is from her new album "Brave" set to drop October 9th. Im LOVING this track, definately the uptempo, high paced song thats pretty much been lacking all summer...yea snappin and pop lockin all around the damn place is great, but i miss DANCING...and this is definately a track that will make u wanna get UP..although i prefer her other song "Hold It Dont Drop It", which is set to be released to POP outlets while "Do it well" is set for urban, Do it well is still a banger none the less...

Sassy import, and all around fierce bish Amy
"Jazz diva Amy's drink and drug problems came to a head on Wednesday when she collapsed following a three-day bender with 25-year-old Blake.
Amy, 23, was taken to hospital in the early hours after taking a cocktail of heroin, ecstasy, cocaine, the horse tranquilliser ketamine and booze."
well damn Amy, is it that bad girl? if it is, just do what i do...getchu alil boonesfarm, alot of vodka, and take u a nice nap..you'll wake up feeling grrrrrrrrrrrrrreat! with a nice lil koolaid moustache!...now dont ever say ive never dropped any advice on this blog

Mtv.com did a nifty lil breakdown of the fall music line up, looking at all the major release dates down into the 3 categories..the heavy weights, the middle weights and the contenders...ofcourse dates are liable to change and some artists will release mediocre first singles that will require pushbacks...*QQN @ mya*...but for the most part im REALLY Looking forword to some of the artist to come, and slowly saying a prayer for tolerance and understanding for others.....heres my 2 cents on some artist that are scheduled to release in the coming months...
Swizz Beatz - August 21.....ehhh no
M.I.A. - August 21 DTP Compilation - August 28....HOLLER
Chris Brown - August 28...i'll pass on remedial roy's sophmore effort
Yung Joc - August 28 ...as if
Akon (Konvicted Repackaged) - August 28...why the anti-christ of music insist on assaulting ears drums everywhere, im not sure why
Yung Berg - September 4...lol rrrrright
50 Cent - September 11...what what, in the butt?
Kanye West - September 11...dropping on the same day as 50 are we? lemme set a nice chunk of my financial aid check aside to buy as MANY copies as possible
Eve - September 18...im running straight to the store!....to cop a blank cd so i can burn this one
Keyshia Cole - September 18...^^^^^ ditto
Nelly - September 18...seeing how theres NO single, NO nelly and NO overproduced neptune beat blasting on the radio..im guessing this is definately a push back
Mya - September 18...who?
Chamillionaire - September 18...i pass
Twista - September 18...nope nope
Jill Scott - September 25...will be standing in line with bells on!
will.i.am - September 25...his first single is horrible dissapointing, considering ive LOVED all his production on other records this past year..so untill he embraces the SOUL and leaves the laguna beach sound alone, he gets no love from me...
Trina - September 25...wont be buying this one...lol only if trina got a dollar everytime she heard that when she
use to strip
Jennifer Lopez - October 9...EVERYONES ENTILTED TO THEIR ONE GUILTY PLEASURE!..STOP JUDGING ME!
Ashanti - October 23...yeaaaaaaaa....no
Erykah Badu - October 23..about GOTDAMN TIME!
Nicole Scherzinger - October 30...still on the fence about this one
Alicia Keys - November 6...eagerly anticipating the first single!!!!!!
Mariah Carey - November 20...HELL YEA!...but to be honest im alil scared..she either hit or miss...im hoping its another HIT, because my heart and her waistline cant afford another miss
(the list, curtosy of Rap-up.com)
Whitney Houston performs "Count on me" with Cece Winans from the waiting to exhale soundtrack at the 2007 Sisters Conference...remember the soundtrack? i still own it and play it occasionally lol....but its good seeing Whitney put a mic up to her mouth again...yanno apposed to a pipe...i hope the comeback album is coming along nicely, aslong as clive is behind it im sure it will be, unless his contract with satan has expired

I was originally gonna call this post "where the divas at?" focusing on the female
Why is it that in a world where rihanna can release an album everytime she decides she wants to do jay-z's laundry she can, but if an artist with substance, a voice and oh yea..TALENT wants to..its like pulling teeth? im honestly not sure..could it be the fact that the artist is praised SO MUCH that they become full of themselves and feel like releasing another album would be SOOO brilliant and SOOO influential it would mark the return of Christ? (lauryn it aint that serious boo, come back)...OR the artist go back into the studio thinking that they can be TRUE artist and make music without gimmicks and their record label reminds them that, without a gimmick or sellin sex, they will continue to go double plexyglass on the charts? and there for DROPS them? (its ok res, ur still the bees knees to me!)...again, im not exactly sure...OR! OR! OR!!!... wack artist of today feel they CONSTANTLY need to prove themselves as SERIOUS artist that they MUST release an album every season?....whatever the case may be, i wish the SOUL would make a triumphant COMEBACK..not saying it ever left, with great artist like; Lina, Angie Stone, Anthony Hamilton, India Arie, Rhian Benson, Donnie and Amel Larriuex holdin us down...but i MISS back when everything was new and
In a world full of strategically placed lacefronts, overly manufactored personas (good girl gone bad my ass), and a bunch of other wack shit..JILL SCOTT is the REAL thing...i seriously consider her first album "Who is Jill Scott: Words and Sounds Vol. 1" a CLASSIC (and not just in black music but in music in general) her third album "The Real Thing" drops next month on the 25th...on her myspace page she has 4 new tracks up! who in the hell does that u ask?!...people not tryna trick u into buying their album for a hot first single and then the remainder of the album bein filled with bullshit..*QQN @ mya* yea i see u heffa....so definately check out jills myspace and her webpage..show love..and DONT HATE
check out jills brand new video from her first single "Hate On Me" from her Upcoming album "The Real Thing" in stores Sep 25th

"A week after soaring 23-1 on the Billboard Hot 100, Sean Kingston's "Beautiful Girls" begins a second week in the top spot on the chart. The newcomer's self-titled debut album, released by Beluga Heights/Epic, opened yesterday at No. 6 on The Billboard 200. Kingston also has the Hot 100's top debut at No. 28 with "Me Love," the first time an artist ranked No. 1 and scored Hot Shot Debut honors since Beyonce's "Irreplaceable" and "Listen" in January."
Jesus be a hearing aid for America...
"Yes, I came in at No. 6 and sold 86,000 records - in a declining market, might I add. I'm very proud of that. Not everybody's selling records like they used to. Even the biggest artists don't come out and go platinum in a week anymore. It's a different day and age in the music industry."
girrrrl, ive seen artist on the gospel charts debut with higher sales than that....i mean, im sure somebody named Maybelle Jean Merryweather could come out with a album named "Comin atchall, IN THE NAME OF JESUS!" and could bust 100,000 in the first week!...but i guess whatever helps you not down a pinesole cocktail with a bleach chaser is all to the good right?

The Angry Blogger:
This is the type of blogger that basically hates everything and everyone he/she post about, with a sassy wit and sharp tongue that rivals that of sophia from the Golden Girls ( and dont act like u aint up on that shit! Lifetime HOLLA)...but in all actuality probably secretly owns a copy of B'day just like the rest of us...but its cool to hate beyonce publicly...so ahem...fuck that bish *hoping that since i just mentioned beyonce in a post, im gonna recieve atleast 1242145 comments alone"....oh from my mouth to Gods ears...
