Turning The Screw: Troublesum, Limp Bizkit & Paul Wall, Rap-A-Lot's Mike Dean, Miley Chopped & Screwed, Beyonce, Z-Ro 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 [email protected]. Thanks, homies.

Single of the Week:

"I Wanna Rock Remix," Troublesum

"I Wanna Rock Remix," Troublesum

Wire To Wire

Limp Bizkit asked Paul Wall to be on their new album. He agreed. Let that sink in for a minute.

Rap-A-Lot's Mike Dean got with Hip Hop DX to talk about things. Curiously, nobody bothered to mention J. Prince's notorious strong-arm tactics. Someday somebody is going to break that story and it's going to be badass.

D'Angelo unknowingly tried to get a femme cop to give him a blow job. When he was arrested, he had $12,000 in cash on his person. Guess how much he offered her for the BJ? $40.

Blasphemous Screwed and Chopped Video of the Week

"Party In The USA," Miley Cyrus

The Roots will release their How I Got Over album in June. Diddy picked a June release date too.

Jay-Z popped in at the White House to say hello. He brought Beyonce with him. And Trey Songz. Fuckin' Trey Songz? For real? Yuck.

T.I. is supposed to be out of that halfway house sometime this month.

Actual Chopped and Screwed Youtube Video of the Week

"On The Way To Space," Jay'Ton

Oh good, J-Kwon isn't dead.

After multiple postponements, Weezy is supposed to be in jail today. Yikes.

There is a documentary about A Tribe Called Quest, one of the most influential African-American groups of all time, being worked on. Curiously, it's being put together by Michael Rapaport, who you might remember from his role in Higher Learning where he played a neo-Nazi who killed Tyra Banks and then himself.

Some crazy woman was so convinced that she was Diddy's wife that she broke into a house she thought was his and just hung out.

Z-Ro Going Away Video of the Week

Jump to the 1:15 mark. Listen to it. It sounds like a cult's prayer or something. Amazing.
