“Richie the real Rozay, King Kong”
Shots fired at Rick Ross? It appears that way…
I know Cap 1 a.k.a. Rozay Richie isn’t too happy with Rawse’s new moniker and Twitter name, Rozay Ricky or Ricky Rozay, or whatever. So in return Cap has taken his beat, taken his song and made his own “B.M.F.”, shouting out some of Chicago’s legendary street figures.

Good Lord that’s a lot of money.
WoooHa first reported (but have since removed the post), that Kanye’s new Horus piece, that he rocked at the BET Awards, ran him $300k and he purchased from the-recently-free-man, Jacob the Jeweler. It looks like a midget is hangin’ from his necklace.
Yep, it appears Jayceon has had a change of heart (zing!) regarding Curtis and the Guerilla Unit. Here, The Game surprisingly admits he wants to get the band back together, and claims he was the motor that keep the G-Unit engine running. Huh, what? He even tosses in a “G-Unit!” call for good measures. This can’t be life!
This is Part 1 of our week long Tone & Shag Go To Hollywood series, featuring Power 92’s Hot Boyz, Tone & Shag. They were out in the City of Angels last weekend for the BET Awards and nailed down a slew of interviews and features that we’ll be bringing to you on FSD. Stay tuned.
If I had an unlimited budget, I think I’d create a cooking show featuring both Cold Hard and GLC, showcasing their mastery in the culinary arts. It’d be nothing but player peach drinks and pimpin’s cookin’. Ya diiig?
FACT: Public Enemy’s Fear of a Black Planet was the fourth hip-hop tape I ever owned. The first was DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince’s He’s The DJ I’m The Rapper. What was in between was either The Cactus Album, Straight Outta Compton, or one of those rap compilations you could buy at K-Mart called Rap Hits, or something. Or maybe The D.O.C. But, whatever, that’s not important….
Without a Public Enemy there wouldn’t be a BBU. It’s as simple as that. Chicago’s rising trio credits Public Enemy as a direct influence, even naming their debut mixtape, Fear of A Clear Channel Planet, after PE’s seminal release, Fear of A Black Planet. In what should be a rite of passage for every band, and what is for those that are lucky, BBU was able to open up for Public Enemy on June 26th at The Congress Theater. We followed BBU on their big night, capturing the show and what it meant to the crew known as Bin Laden Blowin’ Up.
First and foremost I’d like to welcome our newest addition to the FSD team, Ms. Laura Mitchell, who makes her FSD debut today. She’ll be handling a lot of our interview and hosting duties, and will be playing a big part in a major venture we’re about to embark on. You can expect details on said venture very, very soon.
Now back to business. Big Boi of the legendary duo Outkast was recently in the Chi for an album listening session for his upcoming release, Sir Lucious Leftfoot: The Son of Chico Dusty, which is due out next Tuesday (July 6th) on Def Jam. This project has been a long time coming, and I know I speak for a lot of people when I say I’ve been waiting on this one for years. Big was always my favorite member of the duo (yeah I said it), who ranked at the top of my favorite emcees list for years. His verses on tracks like “Benz or A Beamer“, “Return of the G”, and “13th Floor” , (just to name a few) have cemented him as one of the all time greats to bless the mic.
On the verge releasing his first solo album, we caught up with Mr. Patton at CRC Studios to discuss the title of the project, the videos for both “Shutterbug” and “General Patton” , his love for bowling, why Jive blocked Dre’s guest features, being signed to Def Jam and Maurice Garland’s Creative Loafing article . He also reveals that the Dungeon Family is working on new material, including new tracks from Goodie Mob and announces his hopes to work with Kanye West.

This is video #6 from ‘Fest’s El Che album, which is now available at fine retailers and online stores everywhere. If they really are dropping a video for every song they have 10 more to go.
