Video: Kanye West & Don C Escape from L.A.

| September 12, 2008 | 0 Comments

After posting that $20,000 bail ($2,000 down!), Kanye and Don C (or as the paparazzi referred to him, Kanye’s “bodyguard”) high-tailed it out of L.A. on a private jet.  To where? I don’t know.

But this had truly turned into a media circus.  What great promo for “Love Lockdown” and his new album.  You couldn’t pay for this type of stuff.

I bet Kanye’s feeling a bit like Master P and TRU right about now.

The Gent$ – "Cold"

| September 11, 2008 | 0 Comments

First, as you know, I’m late on everything today, so I’ll go ahead and revoke my own late pass on this one.

The Gent$ are the power trio of Pugslee Atomz, iLL Legit and Wes Restless, and they’ve come together for a new album which drops on October 14th.  The track was produced by Wes, by the way.

I also like how they’re incorporating the $$$ sign into their group name.  What up Ma$e?  What up Too $hort?  (who else am I missing here?)

Shouts to Pugs for sending over, and a big what up to iLL Legit.

So I Guess Kanye Got Arrested Today?

| September 11, 2008 | 0 Comments

I guess if this is your first time seeing (not hearing about) this, like me, then you may have been on airplanes and in meetings all day long. Well, the good news, besides the fact that I’m back in the Chi, would be that the Paparazzi didn’t harass your boy in the American Airlines terminal today the way they did ‘Ye. But you know those Paps sweat FSD, joe!

(**crickets**)

Anyhoo,  the way I was receiving phone calls, text messages and emails, I thought either someone died, Tupac resurrected himself or Memphis Bleek had the #1 single in America.

Every news website, blog and celebrity tabloid in the world was reporting on this today.  Heck, I’d bet dollars to donuts that my Grandparents were talking about this over dinner this evening.
And that, my friends, is when you’ve become the biggest star in music. 
Shit, NBC 5 just used the Kanye clip to tease 10 o’clock news: “Kanye loses it today…Has he gone too far?”
Oh, and finally, Don C was pretty gully.  ”I’ll snatch him out his truck, hit him with a brick and I’m dancin”
