    Beyonce Tributes Janet Jackson
    Friday. 9.1.06 4:36 pm
    Beyonce... Lord have mercy. I WILL NO LONGER TOLERATE THE HYPE AROUND THIS CHICK! Yes Beyonce can sing. Yes Beyonce is beautiful. Yes she works hard. She gets an "A' for effort, but how dare she re-enact Janet Jackson's Rhythm Nation on a VMA ceremony that clearly is shutting Janet out. Not only is that an insane lack of orginality but it's just disrespectful. Janet is promoting a cd that celebrates 20 years of creative innovation and excellence and here comes SONY/Columbia's cash cow giving the world justification for all the hate/venom she has received lately. No one is asking the world of Beyonce, we are just asking that you live up to all this ridiculous self importance you exude. Rather than release an album you should have gone back to school and by school I am not talking about Janet's entire video catalog. (Shakira should be a little pissed too... )

    LL Cool J Puts Jay Z on Blast,
    Friday. 9.1.06 4:23 pm
    The night's biggest shocker wasn't even on the actually VMA telecast. It was during the pre-show when LL COOL J shows up with 50cent and says that the music at Def Jam hasn't been good lately and he wants to surround himself with good music, hence his new alliance with 50cent. He went on to say how the promotions at Def Jam sucked ass and that basically he gonna suck 50's dick because he prefers a bukakke to the kink that Jay Z is into which involves shitting on people. All this while R&B is the biggest thing at the once legendary rap label and the label president prepare his world tour and sets up a Rocawear boutique in NYC for fashion week.

    I am happy that LL bosses up, too bad it comes after people are losing respect for 50s ability to breathe life back in this hip hop game.

    Khia: Who's Really The Baddest Bitch?
    Thursday. 8.31.06 10:28 pm
    Four years after her worldwide smash, the explicit "My Neck, My Back (Lick It)", Khia returns to the rap game with her sophomore LP, Gangstress. Since her last outing in the hip hop industry, rumors have been abound as to the Philly rapper’s whereabouts – some had her locked up in jail, others dead. But, as HHDX found out, the mother of two is well and truly alive, and has been keeping herself busy on tour across the globe and in the studio, working on her latest album. Still going strong on the indie route, Khia spoke to HHDX about music, porn and being the Queen of the South… Don't forget to check Khia's diss track towards Trina! Click Here! What have you been up to since Thug Misses? Why did it take you so long to come out with another album? I’ve been on the road, touring. Just as big as it was here in the States, Thug Misses was huge overseas, in Japan, Africa, Greece and Brazil… So I do a lot of touring overseas, in the UK and Europe. It’s definitely been all work and all love just to be able to tour and be able to have a song that has stuck and had the impact that "My Neck, My Back (Lick It)" and the album Thug Misses did. The fans [have been] overwhelming, so I guess I really have been busy. I’m just able to get back and really get in the studio to get everything prepared for the new album, so I’ve been working hard, and that’s a good thing. Now, Gangstress is like my baby, and I’m excited about it! You don’t have any features on your new LP, was there any reason for this? No, I don’t do features; I didn’t do features on my first album, and I don’t feel I need them. You know, I think a lot of artists piggy back off of features and you get an album and it’s full of features… I just don’t feel that I need that on my album. I like to showcase my talent on my own and I just really think that hip hop has gone feature crazy, and I don’t agree with that. Your new single, "Snatch Da Kat Back", is kind of a ladies’ anthem again, like "My Neck, My Back" was… Yeah, again! Well, I just felt that every woman in the world has wanted to snatch her cat back from somebody, and I chose that single because I knew a lot of women would be able to relate. It’s definitely a ‘respect me’ track for the ladies, you know, it’s like if a guy’s not respecting you, messing with other women, or just not treating you right, then you just gotta snatch ya cat back! It is another anthem and you know, the guys gotta straighten up for the ladies! Continued on page 2 » You worked with Janet Jackson on "So Excited" for her album. How did that come about? I’m a fan of Janet, but her camp called me, and they wanted me to do the song that’s gonna be on her album, so I’m not promoting it with mine, but it was definitely a pleasure working with her. I’m a huge fan of hers, and I had no problems doing the track; I know everyone’s gonna love it. I’m praying it’s the second single! You’ve got a book coming out at Christmas called Gangsta Love – what made you turn into an author? Well I’m a creative writer, that’s what I do. I write plays and scripts, and I write all of my own music, so it’s definitely a hobby for me; I love writing stories and books and plays, and Gangsta Love is kinda my life story. If you’re a fan, it definitely shows where my music comes from and how I deal with relationships and just gangster stuff really. I was using the mug shots for my album cover, so you know, I think people will definitely be able to relate to my book. It’s straight through hood life, but it’s a love story too; you’re gonna enjoy it. You’ve criticized other female rappers before for using ghostwriters write their lyrics. How do you feel about that now? That’s a good question, because I’m kinda against artists who do that. A lot of people are like, ‘Oh, you don’t respect other female artists’, but I’m like, it’s because a lot of female artists out don’t write all their songs themselves – you can tell that they have ghostwriters; other females can’t relate ‘cos it’s too hardcore, for a man it’s pleasing to the ears. I’ve been in this industry; I know what goes on. As an artist, a writer and song composer, I’m kinda against it, especially when you act like you write your own stuff when you know that you don’t. I’m against that; I’m not respecting them with that crap and their style and their deliverance. It’s just totally different when you know that they’re writing their stuff and there’s a creativity that you can identify with them. A lot of female artists out there, they don’t have their own identity. The image you have at the moment has been described as ‘porn for hip hop’ – is that kind of an alter ego for yourself? Hmm… it’s not really like porn… Just everything I talk about is real, and is from life experiences. I think talking about relationships and sex and guys is something women can kinda relate to, and my music is sexually explicit, but it’s just me being real, raw and uncut. People have come up to me and said, ‘You’re like the porn of hip hop; we love "My Neck, My Back", it’s so graphic, so real!’ It’s not just my music, anything that I rap or write about is real because it’s me. I wouldn’t really call it porn, it’s just female aggression in the topics that I’m talking about, whether it’s jealousy, lies or sex, you know, those are just some of the things women go through. Sex is a key issue when talking about men, but it’s definitely not just that. Continued on page 3 » Due to your image, you’ve been treated quite harshly by the media. What do you have to say to these critics? I’m not real good with all of this industry stuff. I’m just real and hands on with my business. I’m independent, so definitely, I don’t have people who go any pay for radio and pay for four or five videos and pay for me to be on the cover of every magazine. Those artists who have that are still not really selling records so to me, being independent and selling 800,000 copies my first time, doing my own writing, in control of my own projects, my own masters, publishing, copyright… A lot of artists don’t have this much control over their project and they want the fame and the TV time and the exposure, but they’re broke and they’re not in control of the situation. I’m independent and handle my business, manage myself, do all of my own touring, booking, promotion… everything is coming through me, so I’m really happy with that. I don’t care being labeled a one hit wonder, ‘cos "My Neck, My Back" is a classic and I’m not really concerned with the TV or the videos or being in the spotlight. I’m on the road touring and my fanbase is solid, so I’m definitely making my money selling independently and not having the big budget stuff means I don’t owe anybody. You call yourself the Queen of the South – do you see any competition from anyone else? No, never! I call myself the Queen of the South because I am an independent female artist and I came out by myself. A lot of female artists out there came out piggybacking off a man’s label; they’re always the first lady of this, the first lady of that. You have Trina with Slip-N-Slide, Lil’ Kim with Biggie, and Foxy/Jay-Z, Remy/Fat Joe… Every single female has come out under a label and used that as a crutch. They had ghostwriters, they had the men to kind of introduce them; I never had that. I came out by myself, I didn’t have a major label, and I didn’t have a guy to say this is Khia, the first lady of… So I call myself the Queen because I moved mountains by myself; I’ve carried the weight, and I might not have the promotion, but I’m making things happen by myself. I call that a Queen move, and my accomplishments are a Queen status, so I’m claiming to be the Queen of the South because it is what it is! Is there anyone else in the rap game that you admire? I just love Cee-Lo, Cee-Lo Green. I just love Cee-Lo to death, and he’s so talented and so underrated here in the United States. I love Andre 3000< and a lot of the guys! Lil’ Wayne, T.I., E-40, you know, I’m a huge fan of B.G. and Cash Money and No Limit, but no females…! Continued on page 4 » I just think that because they don’t have their own identities, I can’t relate to them. Either they’re too hard, or they’re carrying guns, or I’ma suck your dick and I’ma do this and do that, I’m gonna hold it down for you… It’s just like, you ain’t doing that out here girl, I can’t relate to all that. It’s fake and just not real for me; I’m not reppin’ that and I’m just not a fan of that kinda music. How do your kids feel about their mum being a rap star? Oh, they love it! My babies are teenagers, 14 and 15; they’re big. They come on the road with me sometimes and they just really excited for me, seeing mommy’s dreams come true. To see me on TV, they really appreciate the drive and the struggle that I had, so for it to be unfolding in front of their eyes, it’s just a blessing for them to see that experience. They happy for me, they’re like my biggest fans! Where do you see yourself in five years? I wanna do some acting, some real, hood stuff. I’m hoping I can maybe bring one of my books to life. I definitely wanna write some scripts and do some movies and producing, so I’m just tryna do my music and write my books. I’m just trying to keep it real and get deals through my writing. Finally, do you have a message for your fans? Oh, it’s all about the fans for me! Much love to my fans, and if it wasn’t for my fans, I wouldn’t be here. The Gangstress album is dedicated to them; it’s more of what they asked for and it’s just for them. hiphopdx.com----source

    Jamie Foxx: From Booty Call to Getting Much Booty - The Journey of Jamie
    Thursday. 8.31.06 10:19 pm
    t’s been a bit of a rollercoaster ride for Jamie Foxx in the years since winning the Oscar for his portrayal of the legendary Ray Charles. From the immense failure of Stealth to the meager $25 million opening weekend for Miami Vice, director Michael Mann’s slick re-imagining of his classic TV series, Foxx has seen his fair share of bumps in the Hollywood road, but the former In Living Color funnyman seemed to maintain his trademark sense of humor and winning smile during our recent interview. You’ve had a fairly broad and varied film career, from the Booty Call era... I still don't understand why we got overlooked at the Oscars! ...to films like Ray. Could you talk about that arc? It's been a great ride. If you look at In Living Color, you see the training ground. Those guys were doing things-- I laugh even harder now-- and they were doing things that weren't just jokes in your face, but real characters. We were trying to make them more than one-dimensional, so it was a great training ground, being under Keenan (Ivory Wayans) and Damon and Jim Carrey and all of those cats. So now I’m happy that I had that background and those tools. You do Ray Charles or Stevie Wonder, knock off the funny and actually DO the character, then let it play out like it's played out. It really makes you feel good on the inside for whatever's coming next, knowing you're going to be able to get into it and try to make it happen for you. Have you ever had moments where you thought you'd quit? Oh yeah, man. I moved to Vegas right after In Living Color. I couldn't get any work, and it was like if you lived in L.A., you've got to have your shine on. I remember seeing this girl at the Comedy Store, and this is when I knew it was time for me to get out. This girl was walking towards me, and I was like, “Oh yeah, she's probably been watching the show!” She says hi. I say hey. She says, “Do you know where Chris Tucker is?” I said no, and she looked back and said, “You look so familiar.” And I was like, oh man, my shine is gone! I had gotten so into myself because I thought everybody was watching the show. I remember going up on stage and doing rich jokes in front of these folks from the hood. “Yeah man, I just got that Range Rover. Anybody else? My house went into Escrow. Anybody? Man, it's crazy when your house go on escrow!” It was like, “What are you talking about?!” I walk off stage, and I'm outside the club talking to somebody when I hear the doors open and [makes sound of audience’s roar]. “Who is that? What are they laughing about?” I walked in, and it was Chris Tucker, and he was killing ‘em. I sat down and I said, “That's what I need to do– go back and find what it is that I do,” because I’d lost it. So I moved to Vegas, and found out the WB was looking for shows. So we went there and did The Jamie Foxx Show, and I got a brand new start. I said, “I don't want to ever slip like that again.” Years went by and I'm in the Laugh Factory, and they bring out Chris Tucker. He had a suit on and he was telling rich jokes. “I wonder if you girls really love me for me, or for my money.” I went to him and said, “I see what's happening. You've gotta go back and get it!” And I challenged him, Cedric the Entertainer and Bernie Mac. I said, “Don't lose that, because once you do, it's hard to get it back.” Continued on page 2 » How have perceptions changed in the industry since you've won the Oscar? I don't know if it's necessarily that the perception has changed. But what you have to do every day is kill that Oscar beast and go out and try to take two or three steps back and not be the ugly person that, I guess, it could turn you into. The way I've done that is just kept telling jokes about it. If you feel like you’ve won the Oscar and you're at the top of your game, you're at the top of the mountain. Then you come off the elevator and there's a brother going, “Hey Jamie, man, congratulations on that Grammy, dog! I mean, you did your thing, dog! Hey, what song was that they acknowledged you for?" (Laughter) It lets you know that everybody ain't feelin' it. So you bring it back down and you use the Oscar for those things that you really wanted. Now they're offering great roles, and what's great is we create [opportunities] on the dribble. Are you more selective in the roles you take? Yeah, that's what I mean. It's like when they talk about the Oscar Curse. When I say create off the dribble, that's a person in basketball that has to come off the screen and shoot it, meaning that somebody's got to set up the shot for him. With us, we create off the dribble: We do standup comedy, so we can go to our left; we do music, so we can go to our right; we can write movies, so we can go around our backs. You know, we can shoot the three. So we use it as our tool and try not to bastardize it, because sometimes I've used it for the wrong things. Speaking of which, how is your pickup with the ladies since the Oscars? It's changed drastically. I bought a Lamborghini, too. It's crazy. I think it's a different type of women [you attract] when you win an Oscar. All the young ladies in the club, I ain't messing with you right now. I got this over here– the 35 and over women with their own companies. They break down everything: “You know, that night I was soooo touched.” I say, “Girl, I'm gonna touch you again!” I'll never forget the joke I told Will Smith... "I'm making love to this girl right after I won the Oscar. She said, 'Oh, Jamie!' I said, 'No, no, no– that's not my name!' 'Oh, Academy Award Winner Jamie Foxx!'" So I'll tell you, if you ain't got [an Oscar], get you one. So what attracted you to the idea of doing Miami Vice? The hotness of this idea. When I talked to Michael Mann, and just learned about who Michael Mann was, I made a couple rookie mistakes, saying, "Why don't you do Miami Vice? You did it as a television show. We could get Jay-Z [to do the music], and we could do this and that..." He was like, "Get out of here!" But after enough of me going up to him and saying, "Look, I really think that this is a great opportunity for you to take a commercial hit– a franchise– and bring the real film capability that Michael Mann has together," he agreed. So now we're all protected, in the sense of we're doing a big-time summer movie, but it's still held together by the Michael Mann way of thinking. Continued on page 3 » Do you think the film will make people forget the iconic imagery of the TV show? How challenging was it for you to step into another actor’s shoes? Not everybody is thinking about the TV series, because I don't think people are actually remembering every single episode. This is a different thing, and I don't think they're going to be comparing the two. I always view things like this: What do I want to see when I'm in the movie theater? I'm not quite as deep as Michael Mann is, in that sense. I've got my popcorn, I'm sitting there thinking, "What would be hot to see right now? A car, two guys in Miami, Jay-Z on the soundtrack and something is going down." Not everybody is relating back to what they saw [in the ‘80s]. They know what happened years ago, but they're ready to see what the new thing is. I believe this movie is high risk, high return because you do go away from what you think Miami Vice is. It's like watching the dunk contest today: You can't go in and do the Dr. J dunk anymore, because you're kinda past that. But if you're wearing Dr. J's jersey and you bounce it off the backboard from the back, and then you dunk it, you've got the spirit of Dr. J and yet you changed it. Did that do it for you? [Laughs] Can you talk about your next movie, Dreamgirls? At first I wasn't going to do it. They didn't know what was going on. Then I found out that Eddie Murphy was doing it, Beyonce was on it... I said, “Come on, man, I've got to GET THAT! I don't care if you pay a dollar, I need to be in that!” Because it's going to be outstanding. You were so great as Ray Charles. Would you ever do more musical biopics, like maybe Marvin Gaye or Rick James? I always thought the Marvin Gaye story was incredible. I mean, if you know anything about his story, there's some things about his life that will blow your mind. Not even his music, just him as a man, there's some things that would make you go, “What?!” So whoever tells this story, you know it's going to be great. Do you think you could pull it off? Could I pull it off? I'm sure that I could give a good crack at it. But I think the Mike Tyson story is the most interesting thing to me that you don't know. The stuff that I found out about him would blow your mind. Mike Tyson gives you phrases that, if you listen to it, will blow your mind. They said, “How do you feel?” and he said (imitating Tyson's voice), “I'm more happy now that I don't have any money... I don't have to worry about anything. I'm just here.” I don't know if you saw the interview, but he was teaching a kid how to box. He stopped and said, “I'm so glad I don't have any more money. Nobody has to do me wrong. Nobody has to [fuck] me over.” To me, that's where you go. Do the story about THAT! About how he feels now, after he looks back on what all happened. A reporter once asked him, ”Why are things so crazy for you, Mike?” And [Tyson] says: “You give a kid who's 19 years old $60 million and see how crazy it'd be for him!” Are you trying to do a film based on that? No, but sometimes you just kind of put things out there in the air and hopefully they catch on. That's what I did with Miami Vice– just threw it out there. hiphopdx.com----source

    Daily Hip-Hop News:Judge Penalizes C-Murder For Attending Spike Lee Premiere
    Thursday. 8.31.06 10:08 pm
    Thursday - August 31, 2006 by Jolene "foxxylady" Petipas C-Murder A recent appearance at a Spike Lee movie premiere by Corey Miller, formerly known as C-Murder, has led a judge to put the rapper on 24-hour house arrest until his re-trial. As SOHH previously reported, the New Orleans bred rapper was originally put on 24-hour house arrest in March when he was released from jail, after the Louisiana Supreme Court overturned his murder conviction and accepted his request for a new trial. Miller was convicted of second-degree murder in 2003, for his alleged involvement in the fatal shooting of Steve Thomas, 16, outside the now-defunct Pl Platinum Club in Louisiana. On July 14, Judge Martha Sassone, who set Miller's bond in March, released the rapper from home incarceration, giving him a 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew and ordered him to remain within Orleans and Jefferson Parishes. Barely a month later, Miller's house arrest was reinstated by a state appeals court that ruled Sassone's decision to remove the rapper from home confinement was improper. According to The Times-Picayune , Sassone had planned to put Miller on partial house arrest but changed her mind after she saw the rapper violate his home confinement by doing a televised interview at the August 16th premiere of Spike Lee's HBO documentary, "When the Levees Broke: A Requiem in Four Acts." "You're on home incarceration to prepare for a defense, not to have a social life," Sassone told Miller during a hearing on Tuesday (August 29). Sassone allowed Miller to attend Sunday church services, but rejected a request to let him exercise in a park. The date for Miller's re-trial has yet to be announced.

    Daily Hip-Hop News:Twista Hit With Lawsuit From Touring Accident
    Thursday. 8.31.06 10:02 pm
    Thursday - August 31, 2006 by Jolene "foxxylady" Petipas Twista Chicago bred rapper Twista and his management team have reportedly been sued by a man who claims he was seriously injured after a 2004 tour bus accident. As SOHH previously reported, Twista (born Carl Mitchell) and his entourage were driving from a show in Syracuse, N.Y., to Chicago when their tour bus veered off the road on Erie, PA's Interstate 90 and crashed into a median. The accident killed Twista's security guard Arthur Dixon, the son of legendary blues singer Willie Dixon, and injured five others. According to the Chicago Sun Times, Renaldo Jones, who filed his lawsuit in Cook County Circuit Court on Wednesday (August 30), charges that the bus driver, Otis Bankhead, fell asleep while driving and lost control of the bus. Jones, who claims to have broken his collarbone, is seeking unspecified damages from Twista, Bankhead, Showtime Entertainment Agency and its representatives, Rawle Stewart and Tyshawn Carr. Twista or his management could not be reached for comment on the suit.
