This hilarious web commercial is Obama’s way of warning his supporters about the danger of celebrating before the race is won. Apparently, Obama’s camp got the idea from this video.

Q-Tip Move

By Konsept (10/16/2008):
"And so the fascination for the 80's lives on with the single off of Q-Tip's 'The Renaissance' called "Move". I can say the video idea does make sense if you know where the sample of the song comes from...

De La Soul, M1 and Jay Electronica Talk Voting

Jay Electronica, M1 of dead prez, Maseo of De La Soul recently took time out to weigh in on getting over the stigma of voting.

With the 2008 election a little over a week away, Jay Electronica spoke on the distrust many have of the electoral process and Maseo expressed “hope” for the future, but it was M1 who took the boldest stance.

“If you ask me about what its gonna be, how important it is to choose wisely, I say choose independently,” M1, a Cynthia McKinney supporter says. “I say choose self determination. That’s not on Obama’s ballot, that’s not on McCain’s ballot. For us we need to make a stake for the future and a new identity.”

Aubrey ODay Speaks On Being Kicked Out Of Diddys Bed!

If you caught the season finale of Making The Band Part 10, you’ll know that Aubrey got the boot from Dainty Kane -which if you ask me benefits her the most because she was the star of that manufactured group anyway.

Eminem Named Best Rapper Alive

Eminem has been voted the Best Rapper Alive in a new poll by Vibe magazine. He was named number one by readers in an online survey. Eminem beat Jay-Z to the title in the final round of voting with 69 per cent but he doesn’t think any single rapper deserves the title.

“It’s obviously an honour to have won the fans’ support by being voted the Best Rapper Alive. I don’t think that there is any one rapper that is simply the best, though. Everyone who was in consideration and many others are the best at certain things, and at what they do. But since Vibe’s offering the distinction, hell yeah, I’ll accept !”

Before I Self Destruct Trailer (Starring 50 Cent)

Here’s the trailer for that ghetto mess Boo Boo has been passing off as a movie. He figured that by naming so-called movie after his new album, Before I Self Destruct, he could confuse a handful of G-Unit stans into buying one or the other.

New! Jedi Mind Tricks - Monolith

Over the past 12+ years, the name Jedi Mind Tricks has become
synonymous with raw, gritty underground hip-hop. With November 11th's
6th studio release, "A History of Violence," Vinnie Paz, beat maestro
Stoupe and long estranged "partner in rhyme" Jus Allah reunite,
rekindling the spirit of their last collaborative full length, 1998's
renowned classic "Violent By Design." A mature masterpiece, Jedi's
signature style continues to evolve as the group moves self-assuredly
into their second decade as undisputed leaders within the independent
hip-hop landscape; their unique sound, and the movement that it has
spawned, is responsible for no less than the genesis of an entire
sub-genre of music.

And now Jedi Mind Tricks has returned with a renewed vigor. With the
first single, "Monolith," Stoupe laces sultry vocals upon a
head-nodding drum line, setting the backdrop for Vinnie's politically
and socially incendiary lyrical delivery (political sentiment also
served to inspire the album title and accompanying cover imagery).

And for the first time in years, the duo's inimitable sound is rounded
out by the fiery vocals of erstwhile member Jus Allah. Re-united and
reconstituted, this is the Jedi Mind Tricks that both captivated a
generation and paved the way for a flourishing sub-culture of hardcore
independent hip-hop.

50 Cent has leaked the first single to Before I Self Destruct and it is probably the worst song I have ever heard. I really thought Fifty would have learned his lesson from the atrocity that was Curtis but apparently not. [Sidebar: Swizz Beatz produced this? WTF]

Black Mafia Family Story Rights Sold For Television

After the success of Frank Lucas' story evolving to American Gangster , another urban drug saga may be coming to screens in upcoming years. The Black Mafia Family, a nationwide ring of high-volume cocaine distributors, better known as BMF, has been sold to DuBose Entertainment.

Announced today, the terms of the sale were not made public. However, a statement from the company declared that a TV series, similar to The Wire, was being scripted. The statement also alluded to a film script in development as well.

Per DuBose' report, "Brothers Demetrious 'Big Meech' Flenory and Terry Flenory were sentenced to 30 years in prison for operating a multi-state criminal enterprise involving cocaine distribution. 'Big Meech,' the leader of the notorious BMF, lived a lavish lifestyle that he generously shared with his members garnering him a level of notoriety and celebrity status usually reserved for hip hop royalty. Authorities estimate the operation began in Detroit during the 1990s and eventually expanded to Missouri, Kentucky, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, California and Texas."

Meech had been widely known in Hip Hop for his close association with Young Jeezy as well as BMF Entertainment's own artist Bleu DaVinci.

"This is a complex crime story that weaves elements of humanity, a strong family bond, street-level survival and opulence with real consequences," says James DuBose. "The acquisition of the Black Mafia Family story reflects my mission to pursue contemporary and authentic stories."

DuBose also recently announced a partnership with Disturbing Tha Peace's Chaka Zulu and Jeff Dixon on their own venture Ebony Son Entertainment.

Kim Kardashian to replace injured Misty?

KIM K SEX TAPKim Kardashian might be returning to Dancing With the Stars to replace the injured Misty May-Treanor. She should go back to being a jump off.

Kim was eliminated from the show last week. But looks like she might get a second chance.

According to ABC: “[Misty's] condition will be addressed on the show,” and Kim is not officially confirming that she is back in if Misty is out, but when contacted by E! News, Kardashian (who is in New Orleans for boyfriend Reggie Bush’s Monday Night Football game at the Superdome) says: “If they ask me to, I’m available. I’m back home tomorrow. We’ll see!”

Misty suffered an Achilles tendon injury on Friday.

Producers released a statement saying, “Doctors will reevaluate her condition on Monday and determine the outcome of her participation on the show.”

They voted untalented people off for a reason and let’s face it, Kim has no talent whatsoever.

Why put her and us through the whole thing again?

Kim should just go back and do what she’s good at.

2Pac Producer Johnny J Dies Tragically In Jail

It has been reported that seminal 2Pac producer Johnny "J" Jackson died Friday in a Los Angeles jail, from what's being considered as a suicide.

Per reports, the '90s Hip Hop producer threw himself from an upper level at Los Angeles County Jail, killing himself on impact. Jackson was incarcerated from DUI charges.

Beginning with 1994's Thug Life single, "Pour Out A Little Liquor," the Mexican-born, Los Angeles-raised producer began producing records for Tupac Shakur. Prior, he had worked with bilingual rapper Candyman, as well as his own Solar Records release I Gotta Be Me.

After work on Thug Life, Above The Rim Soundtrack and Me Against The World, Johnny J assumed the role as Tupac's lead producer after his release from prison and subsequent signing to Death Row Records. There, Jackson, due to his similar work ethic, worked extensively with Shakur.

In the final year of Shakur's life, Johnny J would produce controversial diss record "Hit 'Em Up," single "All About U" as well as posthumous mega-hit "Until The End Of Time."

After 2Pac's death in 1996, Johnny J remained an supervisor with Interscope and Death Row in collecting, remixing and upholding the slain rapper's material. He remained close with The Outlawz [click to read] and Thug Life members, producing for Big Syke on 2001's Big Syke Daddy album and more recently with Napoleon. Jackson also produced for Bizzy Bone [click to read] as well as Mack 10's then-artist CJ Mac.
Real Rap Newz extends our condolences to Jackson's family and fans.
