The Inside Scoop on this week in Hip Hop.
Week of: 11/13-11-17
By: Natalie Hinds
Your girl is back
to fill all my humble readers on whats transpired this week within the
hip-hop industry! I have several new names in the headlines this week, from
Mariah Carey to Bill Cosby and former Hot 97 personality, Star of Star
& Buc Wild to Ghostface Killahs new "More Fish"
The Asia-based concert promotions company ONE Group Investments
Private Ltd. is faced with a lawsuit from Mariahs production company
on the grounds that the company ONE Group wasted her time and money.
According to the suit, Mariah demanded $1 million in reimbursement for
expenses accumulated while she prepared for a Hong Kong performance
that was later cancelled.
We are confident that the company
will prevail, stated Careys attorney. May the best man win
that case, you know Asian people dont play with their money, then
again neither do black folks!
were on the subject of lawsuits, actor / comedian Bill Cosby discretely
settled a molestation lawsuit with a woman who accused him of drugging
and sexually assaulting her in his Philadelphia home. The woman, named
Andrea Constand, accused Cosby of slipping her three blue pills
that knocked her out. He then sexually molested her according to her complaint.
I also find it ironically coincidental that now three women are prepared
to testify against this 69-year old man. One woman came out the wood-works
with an accusation stemming from an incident, which occurred
in 1985 after her agent introduced her to Cosby and she passed out
in his New York brownstone. Come on now ladies, Id love to see and
hear proof of these so-called incidents of molestation.
is allowing the next man to co-control his music career?? Yes he is
ladies and gentlemen; The self-acclaimed King Of New York has signed
a new deal with Chris Lighty and Violator Management. The goal of this
agreement is to expand Diddys reach and influence exponentially
in music. This announcement comes after the squashing of a beef
between Lightys Get Rich Or Die Tryin client, 50 Cent
and Diddy himself. Call him the peacemaker if you will. Not a bad way
to build up clientele, cant we all just get along??
of getting along, it seems as if this feud between Jim Jones and
Jay-Z is never going to end. After Jay-Z dropped a dis track over
Jimmys We fly High beat, Jones says he plans to add
yet another verse to Jays Brooklyn High track, labeling
it the first Jay-Z and Jim Jones remix. In a recent interview, Jones
goes on to speak on his song is number one on the BET playlist, along
with the Hot 97s playlist. He was quoted saying, Im
glad that he knows Im not in no ones top five, I aint,
Im number one B&%$t! It aint no more room up here
Okay Jimmy lets not get ahead of ourselves. You had a hit single
for the entire summer! Of course youre going to have more spins
song has been out since the first daylights savings time went
into effect! Get a grip!
is official ladies and gents! You may have spotted her as Ushers
leading lady in the video Yeah along with Chris Browns
Run It video. It has been confirmed that Destiny Lightsy
will be playing are fallen angel Aaliyah in an upcoming film
about her life. Although the role was initially supposed to be for Meghan
Goode, Destiny would be a better fit due to her exceptional dance skills;
hopefully her acting skills are equivalent. Im definitely looking
forward to the release of that film.
but certainly not the least. Wutangs infamous Ghostface Killah
is back with a sequel to his Fishscale LP, which came out just 10 months
ago. The album features the Theodore Unit, a group from the rappers
hometown of Staten Island, NY. Also on the album is Ghostfaces
17-year old son, Sun God. The album, titled More Fish, is set to release
on December 12 on Def Jam Records. Who does he think he is?? Beyonce?
SHOWCASES HER MILKSHAKE.
