[video] FreeCreditReport.com’s New Rap Ad

Don’t know if I like this one as much as the others, but after seeing it a couple of hundred times on cable that might change.

via Huffington Post
FreeCreditReport.com has finally unveiled a new ad. The previous ads, songs about marrying a girl with bad credit, being forced to work as pirate in a restaurant, and having to buy a used subcompact car, have played repeatedly and is invariably in the head of anyone who sees it for hours later.

38 Million Watch Obama Speech, More Than Beijing Cermony & Idol Finale

I would hope that people are just a tad bit more interested in the political process than Phelps, Simon, Randy and Paula. The speech was also broadcast in a live stream on the internet, so his numbers are even larger than we know. Is it me or did McCain just give the presidency to Obama today?

NEW YORK — Barack Obama’s acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention was seen by more than 38 million people.

Nielsen Media Research said more people watched Obama speak than watched the Olympics opening ceremony in Beijing, the final “American Idol” or the Academy Awards this year. Obama talked before a live audience of 80,000 people in Denver.

His TV audience nearly doubled the amount of people who watched John Kerry accept the Democratic nomination to run against President Bush four years ago. Kerry’s speech was seen by just over 20 million people.

Obama’s audience might be higher, since Nielsen didn’t have an estimate for how many people watched Obama on PBS or C-SPAN Thursday night.

John Lennon biopic ‘Nowhere Boy’ finally hits big screen

Can you believe a movie on his life has taken this long to come to fruition? Reminds me of why Marvin Gaye, Bob Marley, and Miles Davis have taken forever to hit the big screen. Hopefully this will spurn these projects into production for a release in the next year or two.

via THR

LONDON — The story of John Lennon is headed for the big screen with “Nowhere Boy,” a biopic that will be directed by visual artist Sam Taylor-Wood.

Produced by U.K. shingle Ecosse Films, the script from “Control” screenwriter Matt Greenhalgh will focus on the Beatle’s childhood and subsequent journey to icon status. Filming is set to take place on location in Lennon’s hometown of Liverpool.

Greenhalgh’s script details the story of Lennon as a lonely teenager growing up as his aunt and the mother who gave him up fight for his love. His only escape is music, art and his fateful friendship with Paul McCartney.

Casting for the major roles “is under way,” the backers said of the project that is being co-developed with the U.K. Film Council.

Sales and finance house HanWay Films is handling worldwide sales and will be trying to get sellers to tune in at the upcoming Toronto International Film Festival.

“The women in John’s early life truly shaped who he became,” Taylor-Wood said, “and the strengths and weaknesses of their relationships are central to this film.”

Ecosse and HanWay also worked together on “Becoming Jane” and “Brideshead Revisited.”

Facebook Film in the Works, Sorkin to Pen Script

Facebook Founder Mark Zuckerberg

Facebook Founder Mark Zuckerberg

This movie will be a crock of sh*t if they do not go into the story of how the idea for this mega social network was stolen from some of Facebook’s owner Mark Zuckerberg’s school buddies that he was doing some coding for. Rolling Stone has a great detailed account of this and in fact these guys recently settled for an undisclosed amount of money. The seedy parts of this American success story will make or break this movie! Details below:

via THR

Aaron Sorkin is about to get a whole lot of friends on Facebook.

Sorkin, one of the town’s biggest writers and show creators, is in negotiations to write an untitled film project about the founders of the popular social networking site that Scott Rudin will produce for Columbia.

Sorkin broke the news on Facebook when he opened up his own account.

Aaron Sorkin has been tapped to write a film on Social networking site Facebook.

Aaron Sorkin has been tapped to write a film on Social networking site Facebook.

“I understand there are a few other people using Facebook pages under my name — which I find more flattering than creepy — but this is me. I don’t know how I can prove that but feel free to test me,” he wrote before going on to talk about the movie project.

“I figured a good first step in my preparation would be finding out what Facebook is, so I’ve started this page. (Actually it was started by my researcher, Ian Reichbach, because my grandmother has more Internet savvy than I do and she’s been dead for 33 years.)”

Sorkin also asked the Facebook public for any stories relating to the site.

Facebook was founded by Mark Zuckerberg while studying at Harvard along with pals Dustin Moskovitz and Chris Hughes. At first, membership was restricted to Harvard students, then expanded to all Ivy League schools before going on to open up for all universities and high schools in Canada and the U.S. The site now has more than 100 million users worldwide.

Despite offers in the billions of dollars, Zuckerberg has steadfastly remained independent.

Endeavor-repped Sorkin last wrote “Charlie Wilson’s War,” while Rudin has “Revolutionary Road,” starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet, and the film adaptation of the Broadway play “Doubt” coming out this fall.

“I feel about this introduction the way I felt about ‘Sophie’s Choice’: It could have been funnier,” Sorkin finished.

McCain Picks Unknown Palin as VP Running Mate

In an attempt to appeal to women, John McCain has chosen Alaska Gov. Sarah  Palin to be his running mate. But if she is against abortion rights then who does this help him in the long run?

DAYTON, Ohio (Reuters) – Republican John McCain picked Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as his surprise choice for running mate on Friday, adding a political unknown to the presidential ticket who could help him appeal to women voters.

Palin, 44, will appear with McCain later on Friday in a rally in Dayton, Ohio, as the Arizona senator grabs the political focus away from Democratic rival Barack Obama one day after Obama accepted his party’s presidential nomination.

“Governor Palin is a tough executive who has demonstrated during her time in office that she is ready to be president,” McCain said in a statement announcing the choice.

“She has brought Republicans and Democrats together within her administration and has a record of delivering on the change and reform that we need in Washington,” the statement said.

Pope Hopping Mad about Crucified Frog

Source: My Way News

It seems that the Pope is hopping mad about this crucified frog. Whatever. In my humble opinion the Pope should be more concerned about the heinous acts of violence going on in Darfur ,Iraq,China and hundreds of places across the planet. Where is Sinead O’ Connor when you need her?

Read the story Below:

 In this photo taken May 24, 2008 a view of a green frog nailed to a cross outside an office, during a protest inside the "Museion" museum in Bolzano , northern Italy. Museum officials said Thursday Aug. 28, 2008 the sculpture that has angered Pope Benedict XVI and local officials will continue to be on display. The board of the foundation of the "Museion", voted to keep the work by the late German artist Martin Kippenberger, the museum said in a statement. Earlier in August the pope had written a letter to Franz Pahl, the president of the Trentino-Alto Adige region that includes Bolzano, denouncing the sculpture. "(It) has offended the religious feelings of many people who consider the cross a symbol of God's love and of our redemption," (AP Photo/Othmar Seehauser)

[Op-Ed] Obama’s “Defining Moment”

ALL HAIL THE CHIEF! Obama’s historic speech is being heralded as the defining moment of the campaign.  Taking the podium at approximately  10:11 p.m. Senator Obama was met with thunderous applause.  As he patiently waited to begin the “speech of a lifetime” Obama tempered the crowd then proceeded to deliver the magnum opus of modern day politics, a eloquently worded, masterful execution of an indictment against the current administration and a blank slate of promises to appease the needs of the American voter as it relates to domestic policy and concerns about “national” security.

At 11 p.m. Obama had done and formally become one of the things considered an anomaly when one is thinking about the “full” fruition of the American Dream; a viable “non-European” candidate for the highest office in the land, the seat of President of the UNITED STATES.  This “crowning” moment in American history took place on a date already historic in origin and intricately tied into the events taking place on stage in Denver tonight.  The “Civil” Rights leader and world renowned orator Martin Luther King delivered his “I Have a Dream” speech in Washington, atop the National Mall 45 years earlier, signaling the ideal of a change to come in American society, be it political, religious or societal, change by any name is CHANGE.

So along comes a Senator from the state of Illinois who is able to embody that dream and connect with the frequency of CHANGE, faithful enough in the realization of that dream that he had the audacity to HOPE that his message would resonate.  It did.  Tonight’s speech connected and took care of the constituency of voters who were waiting for their marching orders.  The campaign has been turned up another notch and herein begins the final lap to the White House.  How will history shape up in the next 70 days?  It should be an interesting ride, none the less.

50 Offers GAME’s Album for FREE as Mixtape

Curtis Strikes Again!  This has got to go down as one of the most conniving things one artist can do to another. In order to cut into The GAME‘s first week sales, Curtis has released a ‘free’ mixtape version of The GAME’s entire album, titled LAX via his website ThisIs50.com.  Now, maybe it’s me but isn’t both of these artists signed to the same conglomerate at the end of the day? How can one employee f*ck up the bottom line of the corporation and live to tell about it?  This can’t be Hip Hop, more like a Hip Hopera. or something.

Kate Moss gold statue ‘largest since ancient Egypt’

Who was the person who thought about making a statue of ‘anorexic, cocaine-loving overpaid’ model Kate Moss?

Out of all the women in the world you mean to tell me this dunce could only come up with Kate Moss?

Shit, Oprah could have gotten a pass from me!! Anyway read the story below:

LONDON, England (CNN) — The British Museum plans to display a statue of supermodel Kate Moss that it bills as the largest gold statue built since ancient Egypt.

Called “Siren,” the statue will be part of a group of major sculptures by leading British artists to go on display at the museum in October, the museum announced.

The museum says the artist, Marc Quinn, claims it’s the largest gold statue since ancient Egypt.

His previous work included the marble sculpture Alison Lapper Pregnant, which appeared on a plinth in London’s Trafalgar Square.

The Kate Moss statue, weighing 50kg, will be displayed in a gallery of the museum that houses ancient Greek sculpture. The museum calls it a “fitting setting” for the statue of Moss, “interacting with the great Greek beauties that surround it.”

Moss, whose slight frame was at the forefront of the waif look in the mid-1990s, is now nearly as well known for her celebrity lifestyle as her modeling career.

The one-time girlfriend of British rocker Pete Doherty is a tabloid newspaper and celebrity magazine favorite, and now dates Kills guitarist Jamie Hince.

(Teflon) Gotti Jr. pleads not guilty of U.S. murder charges

Well if this guy beats the Feds again he will be looked upon by millions as a hero and will put a damper on any big cases brought by the government with murderers and drug dealers as the basis for their cases. I say not guilty again.

Junior Gotti walks from court in a previous case brought by  Federal prosecutors that was eventually was dismissed.

Gotti, 44, was arrested on August 5 in New York after he and five other men were indicted by a federal grand jury in Tampa. Federal prosecutors said they were members of New York’s Gambino crime family who were trying to expand to Tampa.

Gotti did not speak during the five-minute court hearing. His attorney, Charles Carnesi, entered the plea for him.

The trial is scheduled to take place in Tampa but no date has been set. Gotti remains in federal custody and could get life in prison if he is convicted.

The indictment says he conspired to traffic cocaine and murder three men between 1988 and 1991, killings it says were aimed at creating and maintaining “fear and dread.”

T.I. sets record for jump to top of singles chart

Well it seems that T.I. is still a strong commodity despite his recent troubles over the past year. Check out our recent collab with Real Talk NY as we talk with T.I about his new album Paper Trail.

via Reuters

By Silvio Pietroluongo

NEW YORK (Billboard) – Rapper T.I. establishes the mark for biggest jump to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 as his single “Whatever You Like” soars from No. 71 to No. 1 in its third week on the list.

The new chart will be published Thursday (August 28) on Billboard.com.

A No. 1 opening on the Hot Digital Songs chart with debut-week sales of 205,000 downloads is the impetus for the record-setting Hot 100 move, which surpasses the leap from No. 64 to No. 1 that Maroon 5’s “Makes Me Wonder” took in May 2007.

“Like” is the rapper’s first No. 1 as a lead artist (he was featured on Justin Timberlake’s 2006 chart-topper “My Love”), and his opening-week digital sum is the best by a rap track since Nielsen SoundScan began compiling download data in 2003.

T.I.’s new Grand Hustle/Atlantic album, “Paper Trail,” will be released September 30.

The performer pled guilty to federal weapons charges in conjunction with an October 2007 arrest in Atlanta. He will serve a year in jail after completing 1,000 hours of community service.

Phelps & Lil Wayne Dive in SNL Hosting & Performing Duties…

When your hot, your hot!!! Michael Phelps just got the plum gig that we all knew was coming hosting SNL. I can imagine the corny Olympic skits that will make fun of the new uniforms and who knows what else. Lil Wayne is the only artist that matters at the moment so the combo should be a ratings bonanza.

Anyway here is the low down:

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Butterfly, freestyle, relay—monologue? Michael Phelps is trading the pool for the “Saturday Night Live” stage.The recording-breaking swimmer, who took home eight gold medals at the Bejing Olympics, will host the 34th season premiere of NBC’s long-running late-night sketch-comedy series on Sept. 13. Joining the 23-year-old athlete as musical guest will be rapper Lil Wayne.

It will be the debut “SNL” appearances for both.

The network will air seven new “SNL” episodes before November’s presidential election. The Sept. 13th premiere will mark the beginning of four new “SNL” shows in a row. NBC will also air three prime-time episodes of “Saturday Night Live Weekend Update Thursday,” a special half-hour “Weekend Update” edition of the show, beginning Oct. 9.

Suge Knight Arrested For Domestic Battery

This has definitely not been a good summer for the former record mogul. Losing his catalog, getting knocked out by an avearge joe, and this recent arrest shows that even the most feared are capable of having the biggest falls. TMZ got the scoop:

via TMZ

Suge Knight has been busted again, this time for allegedly terrorizing and attacking his girlfriend.

The former rap impresario was busted by Las Vegas cops for assault with a deadly weapon, possession of controlled substances and domestic violence.

Law enforcement tells us Suge allegedly attacked his girlfriend of three years early this morning. She claims he punched her in the back of the head while they were driving. She claims she tried getting out of the car, grabbed the steering wheel to cause an accident so someone would notice her peril.

The car struck the curb and stopped. She fled from the car and allegedly Suge chased her, caught her and that’s when the cops came.

Cops say they saw Suge kick the woman in the head and was wielding a knife in his hand.

The End of Blogging : FBI arrests man over leak of Guns N’ Roses songs

Did this guy really need to be arrested? He probably gave this project more press and hype than any major media outlet in the last 13 years.

He actually pushed the project forward and got people excited again about this album that is neck and neck with Dre’s Detox with album’s that people have been anticipating but dissapointed every year when it does not see the light of day. Unbelievable!!!!

via Breibart

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Federal authorities say they have arrested a blogger suspected of streaming songs from Guns N’ Roses unreleased album, “Chinese Democracy,” on his Web site.FBI agents arrested 27-year-old Kevin Cogill on Wednesday morning on suspicion of violating federal copyright laws. Federal authorities say Cogill posted nine unreleased Guns N’ Roses songs on his Web site in June.

The songs were later removed.

According to an arrest affidavit, Cogill admitted to agents that he posted the songs on his Web site.

“Chinese Democracy” is a much anticipated—and repeatedly delayed—new album by Guns N’ Roses that is more than 10 years in the making.

2009: Tiger Woods Open $ 200 Million Dollar Golf Course in Dubai

Once again we see another unbelievable project in the city of Dubai. With only 200 hundred memberships available this takes super exclusive to the next level.

As Clyde Smith(Pro Hip Hop) commented in an earlier post about the Tallest Building in The World also located in Dubai, will these places be so heavily secure with police and the military that any normal person would not feel comfortable there? Is places like this built for only a class of people who already are use to having tons of military security where ever they go?


via NYP

Although Tiger Woods isn’t sure when he will return to competition, his huge golf course project in the Persian Gulf is rapidly rising out of the desert sand.

The initial phase of The Tiger Woods Dubai – a 13 million-square-foot golf course designed by the world’s top player – is on track to be completed sometime in the first quarter of 2009.

The mega-project, which also features a luxury boutique hotel, a Guy Savoy restaurant and upscale shopping, is part of a massive amusement park, called Dubailand, that is being built on the edge of a desert.

Yesterday, Woods unveiled the master plan for the course and confirmed it was on schedule amid growing concern that Dubai is headed for a real-estate glut.

The Woods’ project was announced more than a year-and-a-half ago.

It was his first visit to the oil-rich region since he announced in June that he would miss the rest of the 2008 golf season because of surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left knee.


[video] WTF!!? Americas Top Model uses Transgender Man For Ratings Stunt?

That is all I can say about this move on the part of the producers behind Americas Top Model. This is probably going to be their worst season ever because they are tampering with the essence of the show.
Throwing in a transgender wild card to spark ratings is cruel to an average guy like me who loved to see a bunch of pretty women albeit skinny, strutting their stuff with virtually nothing on. Tyra Banks is still sexy but now has morphed into the Anti-Christ!!

I want all our loyal readers to stop this madness and bring back 100 % per cent vagina to ATM.

“America’s Next Top Model” gets underway featuring the show’s first transgender model/contestant Isis, who was born a man but will compete as a woman. The show debuts Wednesday September 3 on The CW, but the network has posted interviews with the contestants on YouTube.

Isis talks about what makes her special and her excitement to compete in hers.

“I think I bring a lot to this competition that might give me an advantage… I’m saying, I really want this… I think I’m creative and unique”

Snoop Preps Upscale Clothing Line Called ‘Rich & Infamous’

When Snoop Dogg paid homage to the late Johnny Cash on the record “My Medicine,” it was obvious that his influences ran far deeper than just Hip Hop. Taking that idea to the next level, Snoop is gearing up to release a clothing line solely inspired by men like Cash who push their success to the limit.

Titled Rich & Infamous, the clothing brand is described on the official website as “A fraternity of sorts — from presidents to gangsters — who’ve been able to endure the burden of gaining wealth at any cost. Garnering equal parts admiration and disdain, these men savor the fruits and relish the spotlight. Jimi Hendrix, Ronald Reagan, Frank Sinatra, and Muhammad Ali, among many others, are all included in Snoop Dogg’s euphoric aspirations to make Rich & Infamous a powerful brand. Continue reading

Fab Preps Thanksgiving Release for ‘Loso’s Way’

via Hip Hop DX

Fabolous is back. After a brief hiatus, Loso is ready to go to work. Quietly, he has been gearing up for the next album, one he just explained, will be out by year’s end.

“We’re cookin’ now,”
Fab told MTV while standing alongside Swizz Beatz and Ryan Leslie. “You might be looking at two of the producers on that ‘Loso’s Way’ coming this Thanksgiving. We’re letting the world know we’re coming now.”

For now, fans can catch him heating up the collaborative world ads he has been featured as a guest on various tracks alongside Red Cafe, Mariah Carey and more.

“Anybody who knows me know I love to step out to the collabo world. Best verse? That’s a hard one. I go in different lanes. I give it my all wherever I step up.”

With all the love he’s getting for verses, you’d think Los wanted to flow from the jump. However, Loso wasn’t always thinking of holding a mic. He was also thinking of holding art supplies.

“I thought I was going to be an artist. I went to art and design high school. I drew cartoon characters. Then I realized I wasn’t very good, so I turned to music,” he told WENN.

Failed cartoon characters aside, Loso‘s next art project will be released in the form of his new LP, Loso’s Way, set for a Thanksgiving release date.

The “God MC” Rakim Signs New Deal, Project Being Prepped

via Its Another One

After a much hyped, yet failed stint with Dr. Dre and Aftermath, Rakim has found a new home. Although there was talk of Rakim planning to sign to Talib Kweli’s Blacksmith label some time ago, only one label can state that they have finally inked Rakim to a deal. Bay Area based SMC Recordings – home of Killer Mike, San Quinn, Mistah Fab, Pastor Troy and others – can now lay claim that the “God” emcee has officially signed with the label.

A release went out stating that “SMC Recordings signs the largest act in the history of the company,” as the signing sends a message to the many labels that have long been after the legendary emcee. What this signing also means is that the long awaited The Seventh Seal album will finally see the light of day – although it won’t be before the end of 2008. Continue reading

[video] McCain Democrats vs. Obama Democrats at the DNC

This vid is of an ardent supporter of Hillary who is vowing to never vote for an Obama presidency because she has solid proof that he was enrolled in a Muslim school and identified as a “Muslim” on paperwork. The reporter repeatedly grilled her and asked her what her sources were to which she replied a secret Congressional Report into Barack’s activities as a child in Indonesia. She cited a story we covered over [HERE] that supports her allegations about there being paperwork, even displaying photocopies of the “incriminating” evidence. In response the Obama supporters dismantle her limb for limb.  Guess what, chances are they don’t care, they desperately want CHANGE.  So, soon the argument will be even if he was once a Muslim should that exclude him from public service to the most diversely populated “countries” on the planet?

Homeland Security Enlists Clergy to Quell Public Unrest if Martial Law Ever Declared

via Shreveport News

Could martial law ever become a reality in America? Some fear that any nuclear, biological or chemical attack on U.S. soil might trigger just that. KSLA News 12 has discovered that the 26,000 clergy has been enlisted to help the government with potentially their biggest problem: Us!!!
Charleton Heston’s now-famous speech before the National Rifle Association at a convention back in 2000 will forever be remembered as a stirring moment for all 2nd Amendment advocates. At the end of his remarks, Heston held up his antique rifle and told the crowd in his Moses-like voice, “over my cold, dead hands.”
While Heston, then serving as the NRA President, made those remarks in response to calls for more gun control laws at the time, those words live on. Heston’s declaration captured a truly American value: An over-arching desire to protect our freedoms to possess firearms

But gun confiscation is exactly what happened during the state of emergency following Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans, along with forced relocation. U.S. Troops also arrived, something far easier to do now, thanks to last year’s elimination of the 1878 Posse Comitatus act, which had formally forbade regular U.S. Army troops from policing on American soil.
