Z-Ro's Heroin Due Next Month... Maybe
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks, homies.
Single of the Week: "I'm Hungry," Coota Bang Wire to Wire The "Dirty South" will be honored at this year's VH1 Hip-Hop Honors. Naturally, Scarface is the one offering up the "This whole situation is a backwards insult" insight. Z-Ro's Heroin is supposed to come out this June. Note: Always agree to produce an inmate's album, lest you be stabbed repeatedly. New Yeezy this September? New Nelly music! New Nelly music! (Those are sarcastic exclamation points.)
Pitbull cancelled a show because of Arizona's incendiary immigration law? Okay, okay. There's one good thing about the law then. John Legend and The Roots were feeling a bit karaoke-y , apparently. Did you know that Shawty Lo has been arrested 28 times ? That's retarded, right? After time 23 or 24 he should've been like, "Maybe I'm not the criminal mastermind I assumed myself to be." Everything Eminem touches turns to gold . Gucci Mane is out of jail , which means in about a week or so you'll probably see a bullet in here about how he's been thrown back in jail. Weezy had earphones and an MP3 charger found in his jail cell. Drake was just playing when he called DJ Drama's Gangsta Grillz mixtape series boring, says Drake .
