    Food 4 Thought!
    Annan, Jay-Z announce UN-MTV global campaign on world's water crisis

    "Diary Of Jay Z: Water For Life" will air on MTV in November.

    Photo: Washington Post
    "....Rapper Young City has been arrested for an armed robbery charge he picked up as a juvenile.....Police continued to hold the rapper (born Kevin Barnes) after discovering he was wanted for armed robbery in Baltimore, Maryland."

    Mario News: He is OPENING shows for Bow Wow....WOW! (is that a step up or down?) and he has 2 new movies coming out later this year.


    "I've got to do my own thing, I'm not coming out of the '40s or '50s, so it'd be wrong to pretend," states Gilchrist. "I see myself as a child of the hip-hop nation. Hip-hop doesn't have a deep instrumental voice in its thing right now, and we need to represent in that vein. And we're not going to be all apologetic for being overly heady. Hip-hop as a culture has grown up a little now and the musical part of the culture has to grow and expand with it. I see the music I'm doing as representing that 'cause it's where I'm from."


    In traditional West African culture the Griot (Gree-o) served the role as an oral historian, who in the great tradition of Eshu-elebara (The Signifying Monkey) was uniquely empowered to interpret the history of the people as the primary keeper of that history. The Griot was valued both for his capacity to remember and to deliver that history to the convening masses in a way that could hold them in rapture for hours. The tradition of the Griot is one of the critical links that Hip-hop artists have to West African culture.

    Saw several Spitters Club members at the 5 Seasons on Monday (Hip Hop 101 with Sonny Brown and DJ Jabril). Great seeing ya!

    Ty Scripts of the Ministry asked me to check out a few of his new tracks on MYSPACE and they were HOT.

    Ike Carter will from this point forward be referred to as IKE FROM MYSPACE.

    DJ Reddz probably thinks I am a stalker because just about every party he did this week I showed up (except his weekly at Gossips on Sunday).

    I have been very negligent in gettin back to people lately. Boogie (BMore's VA transplant who was featured on the Ray Victory track, "Root 4 the bad guy").....holla at me!

    Jeneba Suma uses the word "paralyzed" a lot. LOL!

    Phathead of HEAD NOD ENTERTAINMENT is not only a great producer, but is also a Baltimore historian. He has vast knowledge of the city as well as the Hip Hop scene.

    Big Ups to Jah, B Fly, Kelly, Ebony, DNA, KD, Ike, Phathead who all came over my house for an impromptu dinner party on Sunday. We had a ball....would you believe the last person didn't leave until 3:30 AM?

    Skarr has this song called "Baby Mama" (Not baby mam as I indicated in my IBB re-cap post...LOL!) that is CRAZY! Women need to stop using their children as bargaining chips. Also....have you heard his new song "BANG"? It bangs!

    Che and Tiona T. Agent (aka The Kween) are staring in the new Lamar Hill Play (showing at the Arena Players on Mc Culloh Street), Never Sleep Alone.

    J-Funk is one of Baltimore's hottest producers. He has been out of town for a min - makin it pop! The new joint that he produced for C.O.M.P. is crazy!

    C.O.M.P. is the only rapper I know that can get away with saying a line like, "....staring at me like I got a boogie in my nose"...LOL!

    Welding Productions got PORN! LOL! What up, Peoples!! Yall gonna get rich before all of us.

    Bunny of M.O.L. will be making an appearence at this month's IBB!!! WELCOME BACK HOMIE!!! Tim of M.O.L. has backstage passes at my shows for life! You my peeps!

    Debonair Samir's first National release (via KOCH) is gettin ready to drop (October I believe). A lil bird told me that he is still looking for talent to spit over his "club crack" tracks.....if you think you are ready for the big leagues........holla!

    Who is this producer Sucram? $Joe Click$ sent me a message about him a few days ago and he is on April Love's top friends list (Ms. "Get it Poppin").......I feel so out of the loop!

    Street Radio Vol 3 is in the STREETZ! 20,000 copies are being given out for FREE!!! Those #s are crazy!

    Did you know that D.O.G. opened the LL Cool J show at Rams Head Live?

    I haven't talked to Ty Gudda in a while. Where are you buddy!

    What up N.O.M. Click..where is the music man!???

    XO finally replaced the pictures of HUGE asses that used to greet you when you visited his MYSPACE page with very charming pics of himself - BOUT DANG TIME!!!!

    Kariz of Bang-N-Beat really shows his versatility on the new Ogun and Che song entitled, "YEAH YEAH"

    The STONE SOUL PICNIC is next weekend at Druid Hill Park. Make sure you come out, check out a show, buy some food and cop a DNA mixtape while your at it (HE WILL BE A VENDOR THIS YEAR!). Speaking of mixtapes....DNA and Jabril just released a second "MYSPACE IS SOLIDIFED" mixtape on Saturday. Seems like everyone is doing something MYSPACE related now-a-days.

    Jeneba Suma and Unreal are working on a new song together........I heard a "lil something*something!" WATCH OUT NOW!!!

    Did you know that Lil Mic provides sound for events also??? Yes........he will come out and mic up your spot for you. Not only did he set up the sound for the Flywire Anniversary party held this weekend, but he is also providing the sound for the Street Radio Release Party that's being held on the 20th at the Latin Palace.

    I like that name - B. Hurd! It commands attention.

    Dirt Platoon are currently in the lab working on a new CD. These guys are really good!

    Brotha E (the poet emcee) is giving another event at the Theater Project............he is offering FREE tickets to the upcoming Spoken Word/Hip Hop Sound Clash for anyone that posts his flyer on their MYSPACE page NOW until the day of the show........WOW! Tickets are $20!

    I met the lead singer from Jah Works (Scotty P) at the Charles Village Pub 2 weeks ago. This dude put salt on every bite of his food...LOL! He said he does it because he's IRISH. I still haven't called him..........isn't that the worse...when you get a card with the intention to call and never get around to it. I need a body double.

    Jinx from Dream Big has a new CD.........and I have yet to get one. Add TM the Giant to the list as well. REAL BUMZ!!!!

    DJ Nelly Nel has a new CD out.........ah shucks! I wonder what blends he has for us this time.

    Everyone agrees...........Joe Davidge (from the Foundation) is a great show DJ!

    Who's heard of this femcee Hedonis the Amazon (from Philly)........she sent me an friend request. She's kinda hot too. A fellow 6 footer!

    Brown F.I.S.H.'s "F.I.S.H.and friends 2" is in the makin! Have they even released 1 yet? LOL!

    Grasshopper (of Grasshopper Philms) has a comic strip on his site...LOL! PLEASE check it out...VERY EYE OPENING!

    I've already RSVP-ed for the FREE Premier and Jazzy Jeff show at Sonar on the 19th......HAVE YOU? Note to self: GET THERE EARLY!!!

    Team Fifty was going to be performing on the Boot Camp Click show card, but I hear that they will now be performing with Slick Rick...wow! thats a step up! even tho they may have fit a lil better with BCC.

    WORD! - I have been usuing that word waaaaay too often lately.

    Oh ....guess what! The Roost will be re-opening! I hope the fish is fresh.....I am sick of perfectly shaped and formed fish...something ain't right about that. I like it when it when my trout rolls up on the sides.

    I finally met Young Crip (and he says that his name bears no relation to the deadly gang)! He gave me a mixtape at the past IBB show....this guy has a voice on him. I'm the biggest fan he just realized he had.

    PX's new CD "Hood Therapy" will be dropping next month. They are posting promo links all over the net!

    Van Silk is having a Birthday party! Im sure all the models will be present.

    I love me some Suga Bear and he loves him some big gurls! His fashions are out of site. He is most def going to be making me something soon. Speaking of designers....my girl Iris, CEO of the Elena Siri (custom crocheted fashions @ http://www.elenasiri.zoomshare.com) is featured in the July/August issue of Name It! Magazine.
