Blog Roundup

Dag, you know, I just don't get around much, what with how hectic my life of 36 years is. So, its good to see that I can get a blogger round up at About rap regarding what is going on, cuz I sure as hell will admit that I dont know!

From:LiveJournal Hip HopWord is 50 says he'd like to executive produce 2Pac's new album and make sure 2Pac is promoted correctly. 50 also says he's concerned about the direction of 2Pac's material from his last effort. "I mean look at his last album. You can say there was no single and if it was it wasn't released in time and not only that, but it was probably released quietly, where absolutely no one heard about it. How do they expect to make money by doing that if the marketing isn't on point," asked 50.

From:Assimillated Negro:So last night was the first of a two night engagement for The Roots and Company at Radio City Music Hall. The first night had Nas, Common, Talib Kweli on the bill. The second has Erykah Badu, Mos Def, Angelique Kidjo, and R&B duo J. Davey. Which means the first night might be worth the $75-80 beans. But Day2 ... ehh. (UPDATE: this would be true except Day 2 apparently had a ten minute set by Dave Chappelle and a finale with Jay-Z, D'OH!!!)

From:Bitter VibesI just received an email from an angry and obviously, very disgruntled freelance writer regarding The Source Magazine. Apparently, the gangster tactics didn't stop when Dave Mays and Benzino were given the boot
