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:

"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.


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.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
