[video] Scream 4 (International Trailer)

The other Ghostface Killer is back.

Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell), now the author of a self-help book, returns home to Woodsboro on the last stop of her book tour. There she reconnects with Sheriff Dewey (David Arquette) and Gale (Courteney Cox), who are now married, as well as her cousin Jill (Emma Roberts) and her Aunt Kate (Mary McDonnell). Unfortunately Sidney’s appearance also brings about the return of Ghostface, putting Sidney, Gale, and Dewey, along with Jill, her friends, and the whole town of Woodsboro in danger.

Ghostface: How I Nearly Killed Method Man In A Tour Prank Gone Wrong

Pretty Toney might not have impressed the PopBitch massive with his London gig, but there’s still time to catch him and his Theodore roadies in the UK when they bring the ruckus to theirremaining UK gigs.

In the meantime, here’s a sneak peak preview from HHC Digital’s interview with Ghost Deini that’ll be appearing in full in the next issue…

“A tour’s about having fun, doing what you gotta do, get to your destination safe, get back safe and just rocking the people, man. We had a lotta fun, a lotta things you can’t even talk about… But I remember one time we was in the hotel when we was younger – me, Method Man and all of us, we’d play tricks on each other. We took the fire extinguisher while he was asleep, went to his room, put it under his door, and just let the whole fire extinguisher out in his room!

“So he started choking though, but that wasn’t good. We was young, we could’a kilt him! He was breathing all of that in, and he came out the door, coughing, and his whole head was white! That was one of the moments from back then that you remember that was kinda like crazy, but you learn from that.”

I knew it was something in the air, I been listening to early Ghost all week, then I been catching some new fever courtesy of Raekwon, now this. They can f*ck around and salvage the summer if they execute this campaign with precision. Plus I see they got the RZA back in the mix, it needs to be a Shaolin revolution this summer.

The vets to the rescue!  This joint is absolutely bananas, thus reinforcing my argument that the only ones that can resuscitate this dying artform are the legends that have already mastered the formula (with a few exceptions like Nipsey).  These dudes are rapping their asses off, well into their 30’s. This apparently ain’t no country for young boys, where is the teenage spitters?  I can only do the Stanky Leg but for so long, or the motha f*ckin’ Ricky Bobby.

Rae has been going the f*ck in as of lately, representing that rare link to the past, present and future of where the game can still go.  His brand of “reflection” rap has been refreshing in this market cluttered with nonsense not rooted in any slice of “reality.”  To top it off I been listening strictly to early Ghostface and Nas circa The Lost Tapes and appreciating what N.Y. rap was good for…slick talk sprinkled with street knowledge.

Study Links Blogs, MySpace And Album Sales

via HipHopDX

When Ghostface Killah [click to read] professed his disappointment last year about the lack of sales for The Big Doe Rehab [click to read] compared to the amount of friends he had listed on his MySpace page, questions on the real influence the giant networking site had already been raised.myspace_screenshot1

In a recent study titled, “Does Chatter Matter? The Impact of User-Generated Content on Music Sales,” New York University researchers looked to reveal this problem concerning online content and sales, and whether or not there was a way for music Web sites to increase sales inadvertently through independent content.

With MySpace being one of the major resources for fans to check out their favorite artists, researchers hypothesized that, “On average, a band with thousands of friends on MySpace to be more popular with MySpace users than a band with a handful,” thus selling more albums in the first month. Using the rankings of Amazon.com, one of the world’s largest online retailers, researchers determined the outcome of their studies surprising to say the least. [More…] For one, they found that an increase in MySpace friends for an artist did not correlate to an increase in sales. Not only that, but the amount of MySpace friends did not serve as a strong indicator for album sales in general.

On the other hand, blogs that posted content of artists repeatedly on their sites, termed “blog chatter,” resulted in relatively more sales for the artist. Through this study, it would seem that Ghostface’s concerns and artists expectations in general for sales should now be attributed to blogs rather than label-invested outlets.

[video] Audi’s “Iron Man” Commercial

As the release date (May 2) for the highly anticipated summer blockbuster Iron Man approaches, the corporate Big Dogs will start rolling out their cross promotions. This is Audi’s effort to align itself with Tony Starks and his Enterprise. Their R8 will be featured heavily throughout the flick. Their brand integration is not so much a shove it in your face approach but rather Audi as a technologically superior work of machinery is tied into the theme of Iron Man and his many technologically superior machinery (his armor). They’ve developed a very engaging website around the promo campaign as well. To check it out go HERE
