Rapper DMX, who once was at the top of the music game, has been arrested AGAIN. Is he trying to break some record or just beat his personal best? He was picked up yesterday on an arrest warrant for driving on a suspended license. Aw, that’s nothing! That’s like G-rated, compared to all that dog abuse crap from last year. Maybe DMX is trying to make a comeback?
Anyway, now would be a fun time to guess how many time’s DMX’s been arrested. What do you think?
Well that’s not entirely true – we can think of a couple words to describe Heidi Montag‘s new single “Fashion”. “Total crap” comes to mind, for example. Watching Heidi pursue a music career is liking watching a cat try to swim. It just ain’t gonna happen! The plastic princess has released her latest “song,” which totally reps her token sound: voice-morphing electronics, terrible lyrics, and an uncomfortably weird, unidentifiable French accent used to describe the clothes that make Heidi go crazy . In other words, it’s awesome!
Click here to enjoy such mind-blowing lyrics like “Oh oh la la la, we love designers,” and “I’m so fierce that it’s so nuts.” But the best line of all? “I live to be model thin.” Inspiring young women to destroy their bodies one beat at a time. Nice work Heidi!
Nate Dogg was arrested for making terrorist threats (say what?) and driving on a suspended license after his estranged wife call 911 freaking out, accusing the rapper of trying to run her off the road at 8:30 AM.? [TMZ]
Nicole Richie and her baby Harlow make an adorable mother-daughter couple.? Narlow!? [ONTD]
Kate Hudson is still bangin’ Lance Armstrong in their NYC Tour de Love.? [ICYDK]
Here we go again. Ice-T set up his video camera, pressed record, and went on a four-minute rant against his new enemy, Soulja Boy. Ice started by apologizing for telling him to “eat a dick” on that now infamous mixtape, but then went on to call his music garbage, and threatened ramifications “from hip-hop.” Ice was also pissed that Soulja Boy didn’t just shut up and accept his beef, telling the youngin’ “you supposed to take that” and instructed him to “respect your elders.” So what’s next in this battle of young vs. old? Ice is betting on a hip-hop war – not like the gruesome fights between east coast and west coast, but rather “good hip-hop vs. wack hip-hop.” You can probably imagine which side Ice thinks he’ll be fightin’ for.
Our favorite part of the 4 minute rant is the cameo by Ice-T’s 16-year old son, who tells his peer Soulja Boy to - what else – eat a dick.
Peep the clip above, and turn your volume down, Ice’s language is seriously NSFW. Obviously. [Via YBF]
Awwww. It’s so nice to get normal celeb news now and then, and Timbaland has totally come through! The rapper/producer married his girlfriend Monique Idlett this weekend in front of 300 guests in Aruba. Lots of famous friends showed up to honor the couple – Missy Elliot, Omarion, Keri Hilson – and Timbaland’s sons walked the bride down the aisle and served as the ringer bearer, respectively. How cute is that? The couple have one daughter together named Reign (like a king) who was born in November.
And now, back to our regularly scheduled crazy. [Us]
Holy crap. Have you ever met at 24-year old suffering from the early stages of emphysema? Now you have! Wino is still hospitalized after fainting last week, and she’s frankly not doing well at all. Her dad Mitch – the Joe Simpson of London – told the Daily Mail that, “With smoking the crack cocaine and the cigarettes her lungs are all gunked up. There are nodules around the chest and dark marks. She’s got 70 per cent lung capacity. ” If that sounds bad, it is. “The doctors have told her if she goes back to smoking drugs, it won’t just ruin her voice,” sez Dad.” It will kill her.”
What’s a controversy without commentary from Kanye West? The biggest ego in hip-hop took to his blog to weigh in on the new beef between veteran rapper Ice-T and newcomer Soulja Boy, and Mr. West is all about the teen in this tit-for-tat. Who woulda thought? Kanye even compares the Southern kid to Nas, which is a pretty hardcore hip-hop compliment. However we imagine that had Soulja Boy beat out Kanye for that Best Rap Song Grammy, he may be singing a different tune. His full blog post is below.
Soulja boy is fresh ass hell and is actually the true meaning of what hip hop is sposed to be. He came from the hood, made his own beats, made up a new saying, new sound and a new dance with one song. He had all of America rapping this summer. If that ain’t Hip Hop then what is? A bunch of wannabe keep it real rappers that ain’t even relevant, recycling samples trying to act like it’s 96 again and all they do is hate on new sh*t? N*ggas always talk about the golden age but for a 13 year old kid, this is the golden age!!! That song was so dope cause everything he said had a hidden meaning… that’s Nas level sh*t… he just put it over some steel drums which is also some Nas sh*t if you had the 2nd album cassette with the bonus track “Silent Murder” on it. In closing… new n*ggas get ya money$$$$$$$$$$ Keep this shit fresh and original…. ain’t no f*ckin’ rules to this sh*t and that’s what real hip hop is to me.
Ouch. Fiddy‘s ex Shaniqua Tompkins just scored a big victory in her battle against her baby daddy. She asked for and received a restraining order against the rapper, which means he will have to “forfeit any guns and other firearms.” When visiting his 11-year old sun he must pick him up at “curbside,” and may not be in the same location as Shaniqua at any time. Next up: Tompkins and her lawyer will be in court next month pushing for a permanent restraining order against 50 Cent. Everyone should just make their lives a lot easier and give up dating once and for all!
Britney wants to give us more songs! But do we even want them? The “singer” is back in the studio recording a follow up album to last year’s kinda hit “Blackout,” and her producer/co-writer calls her “amazing.”
He must be taking about her weave or Brit’s ability to chug back 32 ounces of frapp in half a minute. Surely he can’t mean her voice, right? The dude goes on to babble about how Brit is a “true professional” and only bringing positive stuff to the table. We don’t doubt that she can deliver a solid album – she did that already this fall. The real question is if she can deliver a solid version of herself – no meltdowns, no platform flip flops, and no half-assed lipsyncing. Is it possible? [Us]
