Justin Timberlake is at the Top of Pop, Hip Hop and R&B
Monday. 11.6.06 10:41 am
Justin Timberlake is doing the damn thing. For all those that hated on him along the way, it's time to drop it. Get off your high horse and drink this white milk like the rest of world. Because it's clear this kat is going nowhere but straight to the top.
And speaking of going straight to the top, his single "My Love" featuring T.I. and Timbaland is now #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. All that and he hasn't even released "Love Stoned" yet.
What I find curious is that Hot 97, home of Miss Jones and Funk Master Flex, are sponsoring his concert here in New York this coming February. That's kinda odd because aside from Summer Jam, Hot 97 doesn't really sponsor too many concerts and since they are the self-declared home of HIP HOP and R&B in the Tri State area, they opted for Justin as opposed to Beyonce, Jay Z, Diddy, T.I., Mary J. Blige or even Lady Sovereign. They've never even sponsored Eminem. Who's next, Fergi

Jeezy Going on Tour With Hov, Nas, Ghostface and Diddy?
Monday. 11.6.06 10:34 am
One of ATL's hip hop golden boys may be rolling out soon with some of the big wigs. On Hot 97 a few days ago, Jay talked about wanting to do a tour here in the US. And of course he named Jeezy to jump on and rep the south. Folks have been buzzing for a few days on whether a tour like this could fill up arenas across the country. And y'all already know ticket sales will be crazy. So supposedly the only thing holding Hov back from solidifying this domestic tour is the doubt that it won't sell out. Everybody on the tour's album is dropping November/December, so a January tour date is supposedly being looked at. The real question here is can Jeezy hold his own in a lineup like this? Regardless, having the south repped in something like this is some good shit. But can Jeezy hold it down?

Irv Gotti Clearing Up Rumors? New Leaked Music From Nas, Ghostface, and Hov
Thursday. 11.2.06 10:13 am
First off, I'm not 100% sure this is a message from Irv Gotti himself, but this is a blog for gossip and the unconfirmed. So....
Irv Gotti posted a message on the Murder Inc. news site around 3 a.m. this morning. He basically talked about upcoming projects and cleared up the rumors about his newest pop signeee Vanessa Carlton. He says he and "V" are not involved as a couple like everyone is saying. And that is definitely not the reason she came over to the Inc. Irv told the fans that "The Game and Murder Inc is like that now. Me and Rule speak to Game all the time." So I guess Game is buddy buddy with the Inc now. Game and Weezy F.will be on several tracks of Ja Rule's upcoming album as well. That ought to be interesting.
Here's the exact message:
Its your boy Irv Gotti. I have been posting stuff on my new artist Vanessa "V" Carltons site. And I just seen that someone posted that I should post on here since I am posting on there. I felt that. but I feel you guys on here know me already. and the people on V's site need to get to know me. but I kind of like interacting with the people. I'm feeling it. so I will be on here from time to time to see what my people are saying and thinking. I gotta be honest. yall say some pretty funny shhiiittt. NO. I am not fuuuccckkiiing V. I have a great relationship with her boyfriend Stephan Jenkins of the group Third Eye Blind. Me and V have gotten extremely close in a short time tho. so I could easily see why people may think that. but its not the case. she is my bfff. hahahahaha. as far as Murder Inc goes. 07 is looking like its gonna be a HUGE year for us. The young lion Lloyd "Ladi" is really getting things going. his YOU record with Lil Wayne is starting to explode at radio. feels great. as far as my brother Ja Rule goes. Yall all should know i would give my life for him. so as far as his project goes. you should know we coming. and yes. The Game and Murder Inc is like that now. me and rule speak to Game all the time. and you will be hearing some crazy songs with Rule and Game. I also have alot of new artist coming. 7, who is arguably the most talented person I have ever been around, is making a jump into being an artist. he is with Murder Inc. and his album is incredible. Imagine Prince if he fuuccckkked with Hip Hop. thats the best way to explain 7. I seen a post that chink santana is not with the INC anymore. yall make me laugh when yall run with the bullssshhit. Chink Santana and Murder Inc. is forever. feel me. what I have with my family is deep. and its rare in this fuucckkedd up biz. He has a label called Black Flag. that I am fully behind. and yes he co exec. jim jones album. my nigguz talents run deep. so hopefully it clears up a few things. I will end with this. after i got acquitted and didn't have to do that 20 years. it changed my life. i became more spiritual and believing in GOD. but yet i'm still Thugging it til the casket drops. my nigguz call me the Spiritual Thug now. hahahaha. but I just feel an obligation to make everyone whoever believed in me. to make them proud. I am way more of a people person now. cause 12 juror members that I didn't know. seen the good in me when the government was saying I was the head of a criminal empire with my brother for life SUPREME! and they acquitted me. so I owe them and every person out there a service to do them proud. I guess thats why i am on this sites now. I guess I am really FOR THE PEOPLE NOW! Ride wit ME! its real. Irv Gotti
p.s. i am very busy so do not get mad at me if i'm not on here as much as you guys may like. I'm trying to make history and change the way people think and feel. but i will be on here.
The funniest thing about this message is that he doesn't mention a damn thing about Ashanti. Rumor has it she left the Inc. a while ago, even though she's still listed as a signee on their official website. Maybe Irv is still pissy that she chose to be with Nelly regardless of how the dudes in The Inc. felt about it. Still, I hear Irv has signed Vanessa to somewhat take Ashanti's place.
On another note, I'm still laughing Hov and Def Jam actually dropped this Lady Soverign chick's Public Warning album yesterday.
Here's what is rumored to be Jay-Z's new Kingdom Come album cover:
Check out the new leaked music:
Ghostface-"Ghost Is Back"
Nas-"The 'N' "
Jay-Z-"The Corporate Takeover" off the Green Lantern Mixtape Presidential Invasion

You Gotta Respect It: Young Jeezy and Ludacris are the Real Deal
Thursday. 11.2.06 9:53 am
A lot of people have been trashing ATL for the snap music heatwave that lasted for *snap* this long, and that vulgar Reckless character has done his best to ravage, demolish, and denounce whatever credibilty the South has ever had. But the snap sub-genre, despite its popularity and airwave control, has never really sold that many records. If you think about it, D4L struggled to hit 400K after months of release, and Dem Franchize Boys just barely topped gold before they fell off the charts and failed to make a return in the sales department even after their third single was released.
Now, if you look at Luda's past album sales and his current Soundscan takeover, T.I's digits, Jeezy's last album selling 1.5 mill, and his upcoming sophomore LP building more buzz than "Soul Survivor," its easy to differentiate their style of rap music, which has more of a real feel to it; the better the quality, the better the sales. Outkast, Gnarls Barkley -- this is what I call real music. It's different, and it's sometimes off the meter when measuring the realms of what hip-hop music should be, but these people are pushing units. Whether they're wearing diapers (not a good look) or white wigs, they're giving the people what they want: Real music.
Just a thought. Like them or not, you gotta respect it. This is why the South is on top. And in the name of these artists, it is a well-deserved title. That other bull sh*t I can't really co-sign.
And by the way, you would never guess who this is. Let's just say that in my blog, nothing is ever censored.
Shout out to SOHH Southern.

the south running shit!!!! luda going plat again and jeezy going plat again
Posted by: houston's finest at November 1, 2006 10:27 AM
Luda looks good in that picture...Thank goodness he didn't sign to Bad Boys when he was first starting out!!!
Posted by: barbaraa.jackson at November 1, 2006 10:39 AM
I have been a Luda fan since his first album. I buy every single album that drops on the day it drops. I am from New Jersey and most of my friends listen to southern rappers before we even fuck with East Coast/NYC rappers.
Jeezy album was refreshing and his style is hot. His album was fire and I cant wait til the next one.
Many reasons can attribute to why the south is "runnin' thangs" right now, but the main reason is the South is putting out great music. HANDS DOWN!
I keep telling people, STOP SLEEPING ON LUDACRIS!!! lyrically, the man is a problem. And when you can dish out club bangers at the same time, you got a bonafide superstar.

Update: Source Sex Verdict Official, Osorio Wins $8 Mil
Thursday. 11.2.06 9:49 am
Wednesday - November 1, 2006 by Brandi Hopper
The Source - July 2003
It's still a multi-million dollar win for Kim Osorio, but the jilted former editor-in-chief of The Source is only entitled to about half the money she and her lawyers thought she was awarded.
As previously reported by SOHH, The Source's lawyer, Mercedes Colwin, and counsel for the magazine's former co-owners, David Mays and Raymond "Benzino" Scott, called the dollar amount into question in court yesterday (October 31) after a $15.5 million verdict was widely reported in media outlets across the country.
Apparently the plaintiff's attorneys misunderstood the verdict.
After considering an appeal from Osorio's lawyers Kenneth Thompson and Doug Wigdor to recall the jury in order to clarify the verdict, Judge Jed S. Rakoff shut them down and issued his final judgement: Osorio was actually awarded $8 million, not $15.5 million. The amount breaks down to $3.5 million against Benzino for defamation, $4 million for retaliation from Benzino, Mays and The Source together and around $500,000 for lost wages.
Osorio was not awarded any money for her charges of hostile work environment or sexual harassment.

Bun B Attacks MySpace Spammers
Tuesday. 10.17.06 12:07 am
The other day I was perusing Isiah Carey's Insite when I came across this Bun B article:
Bun: I see some fools like to ignore the blogs and the bulletins that say no spamming, but thats aight. I'm now only manually approving comments on the page to stop these people from fillin up the entire page with advertisements. I've already said countless times for people not to do this, but no one seems to care so for now on there is gonna be no more advertising. Sorry to all the fans for this cause now your comment may not be approved because it might simply just get skipped =/ Sorry guys but blame all these cats that like to say "ayo check me out" a million times.
Unlike many of his peers, Bun seems like the "let me check the internet and see who's talking bad 'bout me"-type. First, he attacks one XXL Blogger for calling out the south, now he's taking war to MySpace spammers. You gotta love him for taking a stand, though. (No Clay Aiken). I like Rhymefest and all, but I still think SOHH should have kept Bun B's blog alive as well.
Speaking of Bun, I'll leave you with my favorite song at the moment:
Hi-Tek feat. Bun B, Devin the Dude & Dion - "So Tired" (mp3)
