Alleged album art for Styles P's long-overdue album, Time Is Money, now slated for November 14th. Good to see that Curtis finally gave the go-ahead on this one. I'm sure the art guy didn't run out of colored ink.

The Game - Hustler's Dream (poor quality) Dre or no Dre, about 500,000 people will still go out and cop the Doctor's Advocate within the first couple of weeks. My only gripe with JT is that he's quickly morphing into the "Ludacris of the west coast"; His ability to soar is often grounded by his reluctance inability to push that potential of his to the limit. It's like duke takes two steps forward and 4 back.
Still, Game is 2/3 right now. Notice that there's barely any name-dropping on "Hustler's Dream"? Hopefully, we'll have a better version of later. Stay tuned.
hahahaha....hi my peoples...actually this weeks Billboards numbers are off because of an error!!!...Best Buy hadnt turned in their sales...I must remind I was the number #1 seller at Best Buy this week...the numbers without Best Buy stand at 57,000...the new numbers will be out this friday after they turn in...hahahahaha...GOD IS GREAT!!!!
Judging by the same user's previous posts, there's no doubt in my mind that Lupe truly made the above entry. I wonder why he didn't post this on his MySpace blog which is more popular and obviously has the capacity to reach more folks. Then again, I wonder why hitsdailydouble.com reported 85,000, while Billboard claimed it was only 58,000.
Not that it's impossible for him to have really done those shitty numbers--after all, he's not dissin' anybody or making up some gimmicky dance moves. However, according to Best Buy's official website,Lupe Fiasco's Food & Liquor is the current best seller in the rap / hip-hop category.
UPDATE: Lupe was absolutely right. Not only did a recent Atlantic Records press release corroborate this claim, Billboard has also noted that "system failure at a significant chain made it impossible for data from that company's stores to be included when Nielsen SoundScan processed the sales charts that were released Sept. 29 on Billboard.com and Billboard.biz."
You probably remember Ms Myles from Rhymefest's first video, "Brand New," with K-West. Since then, she's added more music clips to her resume including, but not limited to, Nelly Furtado's brand new video for "Promiscous Girl." The ever-smiling California-e native recently unveiled a multimedia CD available through her official website, BriaMyles.com. Move over, Buffie.
-Not that it's the first time I've noticed this sort of plagiarism, but, there's something unethical about jacking another person's piece word for word. I'm talking about these guys jacking this article. He eventually agreed to add the source.
CL Smooth - American Me Album Cover / Track Listing
Contrary to popular belief, "It's a Love Thing" is a Pete Rock & CL Smooth throwback that first appeared on PR's Soul Survivor 2. I know you don't buy records, so I had to clarify that.
As far as American Me, Corey Penn's Soul Food kitchen is still open for business. Of course, it's nowhere near Mecca & The Soul Brother, but CL's spit game is still as smooth as ever. I'll have a review on it later. For now, listen to these three songs and let me know if it's 'yay' or 'nay'.
