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:
J-Dawg, "Never"Wire To Wire
Did you know that it costs $240,000 to impersonate an FBI agent?DMX does.
Birdman sayshe will totally kiss Weezy on the mouth again.
Adds, "Big whoop, wanna fight about it?"The real Ricky Ross is getting released from prison.
Somewhere, the fake Rick Ross is crapping himself.Kelis' milkshake no longer brings Nas to the yard.
Ever heard of a book calledSubway Art
?The fairly influential hip-hop book
is celebrating its 25th anniversary. Eminem is releasing his video for "3 a.m."on Cinemax because it's too risqué
. We're reminded of BET's now-defunct video showUncut
, which would all but show people having sex. We missUncut
. Foxy Brown not going to jail,still looks like a zombie
. How the hell did Lil' Wayne rank higher onTime
's most influential people listthan Barack Obama
? Seriously? Seriously. You read it correctly:Best Buy to start stocking vinyl
. Anthony Gonzalez decidedhe'd rather not go to jail
behind that $10 million drug ring he was allegedly running. Sears denies the rumor that it will no longer carry LL Cool J's clothing line, which begs the question:Why is Sears carrying LL Cool J's clothing line?
Was it a clothing line for farmers or guys from the '50s? Snoop Dogg gave his rebuttal in court re: that guy that sued him for $22 millionafter he said he was assaulted after climbing onstage
. Said Snoop (and this is not a joke), "The best way for the injuries not to have occurred [was] for him to stay in his seat and enjoy the show like the rest of the fans." Stay in his seat: how gangster is that? Sadly,the reports of DMX joing VH-1's Celebrity Rehab were false.
