After DMX completes his Arizona Prison bid he will back in public view. X will join the cast of VH1’s Celebrity Rehab and spend 21 days of detoxification and group therapy in the L.A. area. I hope X really goes through with the treatment and cleans up his act, we need that old X back.

jim-jones-3

Jimmy was arrested on Sunday (Apr. 5th) night in New Jersey for an outstanding warrant. All this info was of course found on Jimmy’s Twitter page, the rapper updated followers as the encounter was in place.  The rapper updated by writing, “Just got pulled over by the boys. Of all days I decide to drive by myself … let’s see how this plays out.” It was all over a parking ticket. He paid the fee and was free to go. This fucking Twitter shit is out of control, you gonna have these fake muthafuckas caught up real soon! Dumb niggas gonna be posting drug deals on twitter and shit, fucking sill ass technology.

Air Yeezy’s

Nike and Kanye have teamed up to release a sneaker called the “Air Yeezy’s. Usually I don’t like when rappers endorse shoes cause they end up being a piece of pure shit but with Kanye I have a feeling this might actually be hot. Kanye has a good eye for fashion and hip getting up with Nike is pure brilliance, Ye is a sneaker head from the glory days like myself so I know he wont disappoint.

Kool & The Gang – Summer Madness/Winter Sadness

SUMMER

These are two of my favorite songs of all time. There are barley any words on these songs but what Kool and the Gang give you is fantastic melody. “Summer Madness” is the classic song which Will Smith took sample for his hit “Summertime” . The way the beat builds in Summer Madness is legendary and truly displays the artistic creativity of this group. Pac sampled “Winter Sadness” for his track “Picture me rollin”, but I must say I still prefer the originals to any remix or remake. These are songs I been listening to for years and hold a special place to me, as I grow older I find myself enjoying “Winter Sadness” more. Maybe it’s cause summer is fun and youthful and winter is cold and harsh, kind of like life.

The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button

new-benjamin-button-poster-02

I heard of the short story many years ago by F. Scott Fitzgerald and thought it was amazing. A man born old who ages young was so interesting to me because I thought how life would have to be, the people who seen you as old, when they get old you become younger. I love movies like this that make you think and see through the characters eyes, and sometimes feel there sorrow.

The overall feel seems very distant, which is not bad but it makes you connect with Brad Pitt. I think once again Mr. Pitt has done it. The film is directed by David Leo Fincher, and if you know his work then you know the movie is in very good hands. I know I will be watching this Christmas.

John Forté Gets Presidential Pardon

President Bush has granted pardons to 14 individuals and commuted the sentences of two, one of those two was John Forte. Remember John Forte? The dude who was on Wyclef’s joint “Staying Alive”, the man was brilliant he even wrote two joints on the Fugees classic album “The Score”. His solo album in 98 didn’t do so well but it did showcase a rising star to the world. In 2000 Forte fell upon bad luck when he got caught trying to peddle 1.4 mili in liquid crack (this dude is g, please praise this man, he more thug than 99% of these rap niggas out). Forte was sentenced to a 14 year minimum, but today all that has changed. The exact details are not fully released yet but we do now his sentence has been commuted, hopefully he will be released very soon.

I have a feeling this man has got a lot to say and I’m mos def gonna listen

Update: With the commutation, Forte will be released Dec. 22, after serving just over seven years. He still faces five years of supervised probation.
