In an interview with AllHipHop.com, Snoop Dogg explains why he promotes Crippin including the positive side of Crippin:
I’m just tellin’ you if you’re Crippin’, you know what comes with the territory. But you don’t see me on a poster sayin, “Uncle Snoop Dogg wants you in this here Crippin’,” like Uncle Sam. This is what I am. I’m not tellin’ you to do it, but I’m sayin’ if you do do it, these are the consequences. This is what you gotta got through. This is what I went through. I make it look easy, but it ain’t easy. I had to fight a murder case. I had to fight my homies. I had to fight Mexicans, Blacks, Whites, all kinda s**t comin’ up. I didn’t get these scars on my face from just rippin’ and runnin’ down the street. That’s real s**t I had to go through.
But at the same time, when you realize what’s right and what’s wrong you have to say as a man, “I want to do what’s right.” What’s right is to educate and to elevate. I could waste a lot of time and just put out negative music and n***as would do what I say ‘cause I’m Snoop-mothaf**kin’-Dogg. King of this Crippin’, King of whatever the f**k I want to. I could be the king of New York right now if I wanted to be. Who is it, Jay-Z and 50, that’s it? Them my lil’ homeboys. If you wanna keep it real, I could be the King of mothaf**kin’ New York and mash on n***as. But I got my hand out in peace and love because I’m a grown man and I understand that when I make peace with Jay-Z and make peace with 50 and I sincerely love them and treat them with respect and love all their homeboys, I get more out of it. The game expands more as opposed to me sayin, “I’m riding with the mothaf**kin’ West Coast, n***a. F**k y’all n***as. It is what it is.” I been on that page before. I ain’t get far. When I was on Death Row, I was on that page. It was, “F**k everybody!” And nobody wanted to see me or none of the people I was moving with, and I didn’t like that. Because that’s the reputation I was trying to get rid of as a youngster, so why would I bring that in as a musician; as a businessman. So you know, don’t be offended by this Crippin’, because this Crippin’ is very educational. This is a man trying to save lives as opposed to take lives.
Negro are you crazy? No matter how you twist it, it is GANG BANGING— there will never be any thing good about that.

“Singer Michelle Williams, 26, of Destiny’s Child is dating Cleveland Browns cornerback Gary Baxter, 27. The two have been dating for several months and Williams is often spotted in the game box cheering on her beau and his team. Baxter has been sidelined this season after straining his pectoral muscle. Williams, fresh off an appearance on ‘Celebrity Duets,’ is currently in the studio readying her third solo album. This time, in lieu of singing gospel, Williams is recording an R&B album.”
Last year Baxter signed a six-year $30 million contract with the Browns that included a $10.5 million signing bonus. We will give this relationship a couple more weeks.
SMH, nothing wrong with finding a date here or there online but damn, screaming your pockets out loud with a username Havoc255 on wealthymen.com is outright moronic. LMAO@ relationship type: “Just Experimenting”. Times much be rough. Havoc is starting to look like the gay guy from the movie Hitch. He isn’t the only one thats starting to look a little suspect in G UNIT. Spotted@ Media Takeout
Looks like that “interrupted” and pyscho Tom Cruise let this naive robot bitch out the house again and told her it was ok to be friends with Victoria Beckham. Note: UK press has previously reported that Victoria Beckham is considering joining the Church of Scientology. Don’t they look like Alien twins? Dudes who have trouble with their women may have to start looking into slapping some Scientology on them as Tom got his pimpin going on strong. Little Katie: Tom can I watch tv, Tom can I go out with my friend Karen, Tom can I wear this today?…..

Madonna going with the new Hollywood trend of looking out for the poor people in Africa.
Via NY Post:
NOT only is Madonna planning to spend $3 million helping orphans in Malawi – she’s going to turn the African children onto Kaballah, the mystical Jewish sect that boasts its own brand of spiritual water. Madonna wants some of her money to go for drilling wells so the orphans will have clean water and no longer suffer from dysentery and waterborne parasites. “Water is the purest expression of God’s sharing essence,” our spy said. “The water will be Kaballah water.” The pop queen went to an orphanage yesterday in Malawi’s commercial capital. Her publicist, Liz Rosenberg, said she’s “involved in the building of an orphanage/child care center,” but reiterated that Madonna was just window-shopping when she checked out the orphans there yesterday: “She has not adopted a baby boy as has been previously and incorrectly reported.”
SMH@”window shopping”. You know Madonna and Angelina Jolie are known as rebels and it seems the most “f*ck everyone, I am different” thing you could possibly do is adopt and be a mother to a “little poor African”. To help Madonna on her crusade go here

It looks like Kells will be heading to court again. Former employee and mentor, Henry “Love” Vaughn is suing the Pied Piper for never receiving compensation for “Step in the Name of Love”—which he says was completly his idea. Also, there are allegations that Vaughn was verbally abused, assaulted, and held hostage in the basement of R.Kelly’s home in February.
For more on this story go to yahoo news and check out the title of the article. LMAO at “Rap Star” goes to show you who wrote that…..

The number one album on Billboard charts this week was “Release Therapy”, the new album from Ludacris. This is his third album that has it number one. The album has sold 309,000 copies this week. Congrats Luda! The number two spot went to Janet Jackson’s album “20 Y.O” selling 296,000 copies. It’s good to see Hip Hop and R&B albums in the #1 and #2 spots. We are hearing rumors that Virgin is not pleased with Janet’s numbers and that Jermaine who produced this album may be showed the door soon.
Nicky Hilton and Jay-Z at the Roberto Cavalli show in Milan over the weekend. Now put your arm around Beyonce like that when she is faded and can’t hold her alci.
Tatyana Ali attends Complex Magazine and Osiris Present the Abe Froman Showmen Friday in LA. Tatyana looks like she has been picking up some weight.
Mariah Carey performs with Busta Rhymes Sunday night. And yet she still feels the need not to wear any clothes. At least she has that pancake booty covered.
Heineken Red Star Soul Concert Featuring Raphael Saadiq & Guests Sunday night in New York. Claudette Ortiz (City High) is almost there with the trendy look but here is a tip: lay off on all the costume jewlery. Looks like she couldn’t decide which necklace she wanted to wear.

….”‘Girlfriends’ has never had a billboard, even though more times than not we’ve been the No. 1 show in black households,” Akil told the LA Times’ Greg Braxton. She continued: “That’s not right. If I meet this challenge, even though our numbers may be small, I will consider them double what they are, because we would have done it without marketing support. I know it’s the reality of the business, but I don’t like it.”… Full Story
