Welcome back to Turning the Screw, Rocks Off's weekly rap post. It probably won’t rhyme, at least most of the time. E-mail tips to introducingliston@gmail.com. Thanks, homies.

Turning The Screw: Crew54, DJ AM & Travis Barker, G- Unit, Pharrell, Eminem, Nate Dogg, Kanye, Wu-Tang vs. UFC and More

Sadly, DJ AM and Travis Barker were critically injured in a plane crash.

Game time, bitches. It’s SOHH's World Series of Hip Hop.

The baggy-pants law may have been ruled unconstitutional, but that doesn’t make it any less any stupid. In related news, G-Unit’s clothing is coming back. Boy, bad news all the way around today.

Microsoft just got a whole lot cooler.

Eminem to make comeback. Thank God, because Asher Roth is soooo not a suitable replacement.

New beef in town: Royce Da 5’9” vs. Joe Budden, or, as we’ve been calling it, the "Who Gives A Shit About This Beef?" beef.

MTV (finally) got rid of TRL. That sucks. Where are we supposed to go now to see 1:00 clips of the new Jonas Brothers video?

Nate Dogg (above) had another stroke. Shit, man. And Webbie arrested after a high-speed chase? How come all the good performers are the ones that have this type of stuff happen to them? Is it seriously too much to ask for Flo Rida to get hit by a bus or something?

BET announced their Hip Hop Awards nominees. We didn’t read through the entire email yet, but we’re assuming Lil’ Wayne and Kanye West got a nomination or two.

Kanye and 50 look like they’re going to pull another of their "I’m Going To Sell More Records Than You" mock-beefs again. How much do you wanna bet that 50 avoids any “I’ll retire if Kanye sells more than me” pronouncements this time?

The RZA and GZA (above, with Bill Murray in Jim Jarmusch's Coffee and Cigarettes) are going to square off against two UFC fighters. In a chess match. For charity. Because that’s totally normal.

Man, the Gladiator has all kinds of clout in Australia.
