  • Jay-Z Inspires Hip-Hop Musical
    Confessions of a Thug - A Hip-Hop Musical is a gritty, underground psychological exploration into the mind of a college educated street hustler named South Boy (Daron Fordham) who becomes unfulfilled in his life of crime. Dramatically acted and told through hard-hitting music and rap performances. It premieres at the Urbanworld/Vibe Film Festival in NYC, June 21-25

  • Oprah says she doesn't have beef with hip-hop
    I really wish this discussion would end already. Dissing Oprah, the queen of all media, was a PR move for Ice Cube considering he has a new album coming out --- that he's paid for with his own money. But for Ludacris and 50 Cent - what the? Oprah is not Bill O'Reilly, the women who watch her show have kids who listen to hip-hop.

  • LL Cool J Comes Clean About Plastic Surgery, Steroid Use & Heartbreak
    James Todd tells Ebony that anyone who thinks he's using steroids and has had plastic surgery is "weak" and "flawed."

    “Weak” and “flawed,” that’s the way he describes those who say that he has taken steroids and has had plastic surgery to sculpt his abs. “There have been a lot of questions, a lot of speculation. To be real frank, there are so many people speculating over what they think that I am doing. Is he doing steroids? Did he get plastic surgery?” he says. “It speaks more about the people who are making comments than it does about me. It tells me that they cheat and they’re cheaters. They are not willing to make the sacrifices necessary, and go through the pain necessary, in order to get in the best shape they can possibly be. So they don’t believe I would be willing to do it either. So it is really more about their weakness, and less about mine. It doesn’t make me feel anything other than that it is unfortunate that people are weak like that. They are weak. It points out their flaws.”

    Wow, that's an even better interview than the US Weekly exclusive on Janet Jackson losing 60 pounds in 4 months.

  • Social networks poised to shape Net's future
    Safa Rashtchy, managing director and senior analyst at investment firm Piper Jaffray, at the Piper Jaffray Second Global Internet Forum opening June 12, said:

    The Google revolution is not over yet. It has been inspiration for many new companies, as well as changing how many companies are formed today. Social networks, for example, are poised to shape the Internet's future, despite some skepticism about how they will make money. Social networks like are already challenging traditional portals. MySpace, for example, has surpassed MSN and AOL by measure of monthly page views, and its traffic equals roughly 75 percent of Yahoo's, the No. 1 site on the Web

  • World's First Phone Fragrance
    Mobiado and Bissol have teamed up to create Perfume No. 919, the first fragrance designed for the "sophisticated luxury mobile phone user."

    Awwww, come on now.
