Turning the Screw: Nosaprise, (More) Trae vs. Mike Jones, Slim Thug & Devin the Dude, Jin, The Game, Kanye, GZA and More

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.

Single of the Week

Nosaprise (above), “All In The Family”

Wire to Wire

Trae > Mike Jones

Slim Thug and Devin the Dude are back, bitch.

DJ Vlad is suing Rick Ross for beating him up at the Ozone Awards, but c’mon, can you really blame Ross for wanting to?

Turns out, according to the Westboro Baptist Church, God hated Bernie Mac.

The Source will celebrate its 20th anniversary with a re-launch. That’s cute. Remember when the magazine was relevant?

Battle rapper Jin (right) is going to give the mainstream another go. We suppose it can’t turn out any worse than the first time.

Master P wants to make TV meaningful again with a “Better Black Television" network. We assume it’s going to be of the highest quality. Ya heard?

The Game is trying to start some beef with Jay-Z, who is apparently too busy not being a douche to engage.

VH1 announces its annual hip-hop honorees. Can someone please explain why Tracy Morgan is hosting this? Or, more to the point, why he’s famous?

If you listen to Lil’ Wayne, you can expect to win gold medals, too. (Thankfully, the rumors about Weezy’s daughter dying were untrue.)

Kanye is a fan of Fatburger.

Add “sex” to the list of things Diddy is better at than you.

B.G. talks about the Hot Boys reunion and his new album. Wonder if there’s any chance Weezy makes an appearance?

Three Pointers

GZA, Pro Tools

Charlamagne Tha God, South Crack The Album

Peedi Crack, Spazzmatik - Shea Serrano
