soundBLAST! Media Buzz (April 2011 Edition)


Got a lil bit of Media Buzz for you, but I’m not like the others. My shit can be googled and proven. Here yall go tho.

Quickly Criticized Buzz:

–  Former Murder Inc. rapper JaRule has 2 albums in the works, P.ain I.s L.ove 2 and The Renaissance Project, has pleaded guilty to tax evasion and is set to serve a two-year prison sentence in June for his 07 conviction. Well alrighty then…
–  Mobb Deep is freed from their G-Unit contract and now has an album slated for August.
–  Nate Dogg passed away recently (RIP). Warren G plans on releasing a Nate Dogg album.
–  Eminem and Royce Da 5’9″ are back in the studio to release another Bad Meets Evil EP, untitled.
–  Lil Wayne’s The Carter IV pushed back from May 16 to June 21 because Wayne is a perfectionist.
–  Lil B titled his LP I’m Gay and is now getting threats. He said he did it because he doesn’t give a fuck about what people think. He also says he is a “gay (happy), heterosexual male” and has never been a homosexual. LOL.
–  Jay Z cost the NJ Nets $50, 000 dollars after visiting the Kentucky Wildcats locker room to congratulate them. Jay is a minority owner of the Nets and as such, cannot have contact with players not yet eligible for the draft. Smooth move Hov…
–  Mariah Carey posed for Life & Style magazine, pregnant and topless. Eh…
–  Bey got rid of her dad, Mat Knowles, as manager. She is reportedly close to finishing up a new album. Her new single, Who Run The World, eh… Her $100 mil lawsuit plans? Say WHAAAT? Apparently, a motion sensitive game called Starpower: Beyonce, was in the works by company Gate Five and Bey backed out of the contract and is being sued for breach of contract and profit loses. Damn Bey…
–  DJ Megatron was shot and killed last month (RIP), some arrests were made recently.
–  Gucci and Waka Flocka collabo… -___-

– Donald Trump is apparently running for president and prides himself on getting Obama to put out a birth certificate, while doubting its legitimacy. SMMFH…
– Tyler Perry’s House of Payne is being cancelled after 5 seasons and being replaced with For Better or Worse. The new show is based on Perry’s “Why Did I Get Married?”.
– 60 something year old Arnold Schwarzenegger has signed on to do the 5th installment of Terminator. Why does this not surprise me?
– Scre4m is actually doing well. EH…
– Madea’s Big Happy Family is also doing well and Tyler said to one main hater, named Spike Lee, to go “Straight to hell”.
– Hanna is a great suspense movie, go see it.
– Insidious would have sucked if the ending wasn’t so damn funny to me LOL.
