50 Cent denies shooting has anything to do with rap battles.
This just in: 50 Cent also made ambassador to Neverland for the sunken city of Atlantis.

Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda claims that his “friends” Common and Black Thought will be guest rapping on his new hip hop album. They are not your friends, Mike.

The Weezer album has a title! And a release…month! Little tidbits of Weezer news. Like manna from heaven.

The Oasis album. Also a title! And an actual release date! And a single called “Lyla.” Little tidbits of Oasis news. Sort of like a stale saltine.

We can’t even imagine the total awesomeness of the benefit concerts that are going to result from this: CBGB’s may be forced to close if Hilly Kristal can’t get enough money to sign a new lease.

Al Sharpton asks the FCC to ban rappers who “use violence to settle scores.” Can’t save the world. But he will save hip-hop, damn it!
