Week of 10/9-10/13
Written By: Natalie
theme for the infamous rundown of whats what in hip is Did you
know? From new albums on the rise, to DMX in trouble with the law again
right along with Mr. Kiss as in Jadakiss that is, to Jigga Mans prohibition
to perform in China due to vulgar lyrics, the drama keeps rolling
and the stories continue to surface. Now, shall I proceed?? Yes indeed!
With this new, short-term
contract the singer will retain ownership and creative control over the way
his product is marketed and promoted. Looks like this may be a good look for
Case, we look forward to the come back!
YOU KNOW? R&B singer Case is back and backed by a new label
and a new album, which is set to drop next year. Originally the first
R&B artist to sign to Def Jams Def Soul label, Case was able
to negotiate a release from the label and sign a new record deal with
Skeleton Key Entertainment.
YOU KNOW? DMX is
in the news, yet again! The rapper is facing a misdemeanor charge after
NYPD stopped him yesterday to find that he was unlicensed to drive in
the state of New York and his registration was also suspended. His 2001
Chevy Suburban was impounded and he was also issued three summonses, all
of which were: driving with a suspended license, driving with a suspended
registration, which is a misdemeanor and driving with an un-inspected
vehicle, which is a driving fraction. Theres no hope for this man,
Its been a long
time coming for Drag-On, cant wait to see what this album will sound like.
YOU KNOW? Former Ruff Ryder rapper, Drag-On has plans on making
a comeback! He is currently in the studio working on his new album and
has ownership of his own label called, Hood Environment
with plans on the release of three new artists signed to his label.
This is a new me and a new sound Im bringing. Of course
its going to be growth from my last album, stated the rapper,
We got club bangers and the hood joints. We always keep the hood
involved. Look out for his new single titled, Shoe Box.
It has that southern Midwest mix with that New York kind
he pleaded not guilty
in court on the 2 felony charges, possession of a weapon and possession of stolen
property. He is due back in court on the 20th of October and also awaits a pending
drug possession charge in the meantime. This sounds like a case of you should
have been in the house at this time of day. You should know better than that
YOU KNOW? Rapper Jadakiss was arrested last Saturday on gun and drug
possession charges. It was reported that the cops rolled up on the MC
while he was sitting in his 2006 Toyota Camry at around 5 a.m. They noticed
that the driver was behaving oddly and that there was an aroma
of marijuana exerting from the vehicle. Upon approaching the car, the
cops found a .38 caliber revolver that had been reported stolen. All of
the occupants inside the vehicle were charged with possession of a stolen
firearm and drug possession. They were all reprimanded to the Westchester
County Jail until this past Tuesday. Jada has since posted a $5,000 bail;
YOU KNOW? Jay-Zs performance was banned in China due to his
vulgar lyrics. A Chinese newspaper circulated this information,
which comes as a surprise as the country has housed several vulgar
performances including one by the Rolling Stones and the Black Eyed Peas.
The performance has been postponed and a new date should be released shortly.
It would have been Js first performance in the Asian country.
And that sums up
this weeks daily recap of all the interesting news and events that surround
some of our industrys best. Until next week my humble readers, this
is ya girl Miss Hinds!..... Im Out!
