ART IN MOTION

JAY-Z CONTINUES TO IMPRESS US



In the commercial, Jay-Z reenacted ALL of his album covers. This is simply GENIUS to say the least. It’s like seeing all of his masterpieces come to life. Even those who aren’t Jay-Z fans can appreciate this.

THE BEST FEMALE RAP PROTÉGÉ

Most people believe that most women rappers are the female version of the male rapper that brought them into music industry. For instance, most rap fans would say that Lil Kim is the female rap version of Biggie. So if you had to choose the BEST female protégé, who would you choose? If I had to choose one, it would be FOXY BROWN. She would be in my top 10 rappers of all time (male or female).


Notorious BIG: Lil Kim

Jay-Z: Foxy Brown

Lil Wayne: Nicki Minaj

Lil Jon: Chyna White

Jermaine Dupri: Da Brat

Ice Cube: Yo-Yo

Trick Daddy: Trina

Ludacris: Shawnna

Fat Joe: Remy Ma

THE CLEVELAND SHOW- FIRST LOOK

Dont miss the season premiere of The Cleveland Show, SUN 9/27at 8:30/7:30c, only on FOX!





Family Guy is the FUNNIEST show on television. Hopefully, Cleveland will come back and visit the folks in Quahog. It's going to be crazy watching Family Guy without him. Cleveland's mild-mannered and off-beat mannerisms are simply BRILLIANT.  I can't wait for the season premiere!!

Foxy Brown confirmed to a Philadelphia radio show that she was doing a reality show. Although the radio show originally aired in June, reports have resurfaced that the show will air on VH1. I'm not sure if Foxy really has a twitter page but on August 19th, she tweeted that she was in a meeting with VH1...STAY TUNED!

NEW TECH TUESDAYS

RELEASING TODAY ON DVD







Closer co-stars Julia Roberts and Clive Owen reunite for Oscar-nominated director Tony Gilroys drama tracing the illicit love affair between two spies-turned-corporate operatives.







Small-town boy Shawn MacArthur (Channing Tatum) knows firsthand that every day in New York City is a struggle to survive. So scam artist Harvey Boarden (Terrence Howard) gives him a chance to be something more in the brutal underground world of bare-knuckle street-fighting.

KEEPING UP WITH THE JONESES

Will Pacman Jones Return For The 2009 NFL Season?



Now that we are just a few weeks away from the start of the 2009 NFL season, do you think an NFL team will take a chance and sign Adam "Pacman" Jones? Well, I guess the real question is, does Jones deserve the right to play again in the NFL?

WILL THE RETURN OF THE LOX BRING BAD BOY BACK TO THE TOP?

The Lox recently resigned with Bad Boy Entertainment and their album is slated for a late 2009 release. If The Lox's new album lives up to the hype maybe more hip hop legends will follow suit and join the Bad Boy roster. The Lox's return could very well be the spark Bad Boy needs in order to regain its dominant stance in the rap game.

AT 4 O'CLOCK, WE WERE ALL IN THE HOUSE FOR ONE REASON

BET's Rap City was the BEST hip hop show of its generation. Big Tigger held it down EVERYDAY AT 4 O'CLOCK! The highlight of the show was ALWAYS the freestyles in the booth. I miss the music videos the most, back then, rappers didn't have to be commercial in order for Rap City to play their videos...awww, those were the days. RAP CITY WAS REAL HIP HOP AT ITS FINEST!

IVERSON GOING TO CHARLOTTE?

More than likely, Allen Iverson is going to sign a deal with the Charlotte Bobcats. It's crazy it took so long for Iverson to sign a deal in the NBA. On August 19th, Iverson tweeted "My people just informed me that we are getting close to a deal. I asked them to call me when its done. I am so ready to know!"  I think this on-going saga will rejuvenate Iverson and he will make a lot of NBA teams regret not signing him (well, at least I hope so).

HAS STARBURY HAD ENOUGH OF STARBURY?

After all of the madness surrounding Stephon Marbury, I think even he's had enough of himself. I've been a fan of his since his Georgia Tech days and I still believe he can compete in the NBA. Skills like his don't just GO AWAY, yes, I do believe with age, his skills will slowly fade away but I think he still has some JUICE left in the tank. I know he won't play in the NBA this season but I wonder if an International team will take a gamble and sign him...

WHERE ARE THEY NOW: CECE PENISTON

CeCe Peniston, R&B singer who first came on the scene in 1991, best known for her hits "Finally" and "Keep On Walkin".


WHERE IS SHE NOW? CeCe was recently on The Wendy Williams Show and she will be releasing an album sometime this year or early 2010. I was a huge CeCe fan because she had a POWERFUL and DISTINCTIVE VOICE...SHE WAS A RARE TALENT

DOES REALITY TV REALLY DO BACKGROUND CHECKS?

Given the recent controversy surrounding the Megan Wants A Millionaire reality show, I have one question, WHO'S DOING THE BACKGROUND CHECKS ON REALITY TV? Besides the VH1 show, some other reality shows validity has come under question---if these WEALTHY reality stars have so much money, why don't they OWN their homes?????????

WHY DON'T MORE R&B ARTISTS RELEASE MIXTAPES?

SAMMIE "SKY'S THE LIMIT" video for his mixtape hosted by DJ HOLIDAY




In the HIP HOP WORLD, you MUST put out a mixtape before you release an album BUT R&B artists have never caught on to this concept. To date, only a few R&B artists have released mixtapes---Trey Songz, Amerie, and most notably, R. Kelly. Will releasing a R&B mixtape FINALLY become a trend in R&B music?

WHO'S MORE ANGRY? EAGLES OR PACKERS FANS?

I'LL HAVE A PHILLY STEAK WITH CHEESE, THANK YOU





Obviously, the bigger story is VICK but Favre managed to do the unthinkable by signing with the VIKINGS. For those who don't understand the magnitude of the rivalry between the Packers and the Vikings, just imagine if MICHAEL JORDAN  retired and then decided to come back and play for the CELTICS, or even worse, THE LAKERS!!!

CAN USAIN BOLT, THE FASTEST MAN ON EARTH, PLAY IN THE NFL?

There's no doubt Usain Bolt is the fastest man on earth but you MUST  have more than just SPEED to play in the NFL...SPRINTING ON A TRACK DOESN'T TRANSLATE TO SPRINTING, CATCHING, AND TAKING A HIT ON A FOOTBALL FIELD
