"The Life And Times Of Prophecy"
Ya know, I’m rather upset to hear that the sound man at Coachella’s main stage pulled the plug on Cee-Lo this weekend. So what if he was a little late. He obviously has no idea how powerful a dude Cee-Lo really is. And unlike Lauryn Hill, he’s actually cared enough to make some music in the last decade.
For those of you who don’t know, Cee-Lo first appeared on Outkast’s debut album “Southernplayalisticadillacfunkymuzik” on the song, which crazy to say was release 17 years ago, the anniversary coming on April 26th. Aside from Cee-Lo’s distinctive voice on the hook, he starts the entire song out with :
I don’t recall, ever graduatin at all
Sometimes I feel I’m just a disappointment to y’all
And have you ever heard Goodie Mob’s debut album “Soul Food”, remember? The other Dungeon Family group also produced by Organized Noize? That entire album opens up with Cee-Lo singing “Free” in true Negro Spiritual style. And I would have to tell you, if you didn’t know God before hearing this song, you might have started to open up.
Lord it’s so hard living this life
A constant struggle each and every day
Some wonder why I’d rather die
Than to continue living this way
Many are blind and cannot find
The truth cause no one seems to really know
But I won’t accept that this is how it’s gon’ be
Devil you gotta let me and my people go
And the song’s first track “Thought Process” was a deeply heartbreaking expression of pain suffered by those in the world we’re living in, but the blessing of an incredible thought process that is birthed through such trials and ordeals. Cee-Lo’s verse was one of the most powerful I had ever heard about that time, especially where he said
“That little money be gone, God damnit I’m grown
Gotta help keep the heat and the lights on
It would be nice to have more, but I kinda like bein’ poor
At least I know what my friends here for”
So to the punka$$ soundman who obviously doesn’t know who he was really dealing with… Eff you and Eff her too.
That’s why you’re stuck as a soundman doing a gig once a year, and not being a respected member of the Hip-Hop and Music community for nearly 20years. Must piss you off to see Cee-Lo killin the game huh? Well, Cee-Lo is not an overnight success. He’s a dude who’s been spreading the power of his spirit for almost 2 decades. Get yer facts straight homey. And Coachella, find another punka$$ b!tch.
Hotzpotz: Last night Rihanna was spotted at Hollywood Hotzpot “Las Palmas” … and apparently she had somewhat of a wardrobe malfunction of her own. Well, sort of.
Rihanna tweeted at the end of the night that, thanks to her BFF’s, she was set to leave the club with a brand new white dress, and red wine stains. All I have to say about that, is I’m sure the red wine stains went perfect with her bold red hair. And if there was any way she would’ve worn a dress like the one she did to the Grammy’s this year, that would definitely be an amazing sight… like a Peppermint Candy Cane that you would never wanna stop suckin’ on.
And unfortunately, nobody got a pic of this Red wine mishap. Cause I would have to say, from a paparazzi standpoint, a pic like that of Rihanna would fetch 4 to 5 figures easily, if it was exclusive of course.
Hey Rihanna, you can be our Exclusive any day, just make sure to remove the rest of the stripes from that dress please.
Chris Brown.. You’z a foolish man… If you’d only waited 2 more Grammy’s, you coulda had that ^

While many may have forgotten about him since he has had to remove himself from the work of the industry, to me, Michael J. Fox is a public figure who is an incredible hero of our time.
First off, I would have to say that the “Back To The Future” Trilogy has to be in the Top 5 of Trilogy’s, if not the top trilogy behind “Star Wars” (the first three from the 70’s and 80’s). While “The Matrix” Trilogy had the potential to be 2nd to Star Wars, the disappointing failures of “Reloaded” and “Revolutions” made them lose their place in line. Ya know, parts 2 and 3 were so bad, they made the original “Matrix” less memorable than it was.
The Back To The Future Trilogy was so well written and so well executed, that there will never be another like it in history. And the best part of the films, is Michael J. Fox. Michael has been one of the few people in the industry where he stayed an all around genuine and good guy, so much so, that you can see it in his soul and in his eyes when he was even performing.
So needless to say, i too was very heartbroken when Michael was diagnosed with Parkinsons Disease in 1991, and had to bow out from the industry. It is sad and tragic that his career was cut short due to this circumstance, when he clearly had so much more to give. But the heroic part of it all, is that Michael never let that break his stride. He continued to be a great husband to his wife Tracy Pollan and father to his four children, and decided to be a patriarch and a pioneer in the fight against Parkinsons. He has continued to do all he can to raise awareness, money for research, and to try and find a cure for the disease that has tried to take his joy.
Here he is seen with his daughter, Esme, at the Empire State Building in New York City. Michael lit the building Orange and White to raise awareness for the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinsons Research today, and it looks like Michael never let Parkinsons stop his stride
We love you Michael, we salute you, and we will always remember the man you’ve been, and the man you remain.

Amanda Bynes took to her twitter yesterday to try and find her little Angel, a 4 month old teacup Pomeranian she has avidly been posting twitpics of. She tweeted that Angel somehow got out of the house, and she was desperately trying to find her, and hoping that any twitter followers that may have seen her would contact her immediately through twitter. Sadly, Amanda just tweeted the following message…
We are truly saddened to hear about your loss Amanda, and we pray you keep your head up and stay strong.
We know you will never forget your time with Little Angel… All Angels go to Heaven

Yeah, so who discovered that Chelsea Kane was dating Lauren Conrad’s ex-boyfriend Stephen Colletti?
It wasn’t Radar’s bitcha$$, and it sure as heck wasn’t all those blogs that have been citing Radar.
Yeah I saw them kissin and sh*t… And what???
Huggin and all that jazz, wassup foo ?!!
So while the rest of the world is fakin’ the funk, pretendin they know what’s goin on…
without yer boy, they still wouldn’t know a Gottdamn thang.
I’m high in low places, and on the low in high places
We spotted “Fergamel” this Sunday… That’s Fergamel as in Fergie and Josh Duhamel, yeah, I coined the name so if you use me you owe me some loot.
Anywho, Josh was hosting the Relief Run for the American Red Cross to benefit victims of the Tsunami in Japan in Santa Monica, California.
Before the race began though, Josh let us know what really keeps him happy through all his Blackberry/Airplane drama…
Fergie’s Fergalicious bootay!!
Yeah, dude’s smilin so hard we can see it from the back, it’s like a new earring.
But props to the happy couple, as Fergie spent her birthday 36th birthday shakin’ that moneymaker to help those lives affected by the tragic earthquake and tsunami on March 11th.
Paris and Nicky Hilton also came out to show their support for the stricken nation.
Candice Swanepoel found herself in a lot of internet related hot water this week after photos of her surfaced causing concern over an emaciated look. Candice was seen with fellow Victoria’s Secret Angels, Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio this week launching Victoria’s Secret’s 2011 “Swim” line of swimwear at the Mondrian Hotel in Hollywood.
Now, I will have to admit… Even when I first saw these photos, I thought to myself “What in the heck do these girls eat? Do they even eat at all? Or do they just drink smoothies all day?” And my thoughts were mainly because of none other than Candice herself, as both Alessandra and Adriana, now mothers, look quite healthy. Cause let’s be real folks, it looks like she has a spine with skin wrapped around it… Where the heck is her stomach at !!! How do you fuel that amazing body of yours? Do you feed intravenously and that’s it??
daamnit if the entire West Coast didn’t come out for Snoop’s party to launch Blast from the makers of Colt 45 and Snoop’s new album “Doggumentary” which was released on MySpace earlier this week… Kurupt, Warren G, Too Short, DJ Quik and … wait, hold up !! Paris and Nicky Hilton?
Now if this were to have happened back in the day, Snoop might’ve risked losing some “street cred”… but lucky for him, not only is he a superstar in his own right, but Hip-Hop culture is completely intertwined now with Pop Culture. As a matter of fact, having Paris and Nicky at your Hip-Hop party probably adds to your street cred, cause it shows just how much your music crosses all boundaries.
And boy, was Colt 45 really trying their hardest to sell that “Blast”… They sure did the damn thang… They even brought out 101 Damenations lookin fine and crowdin up the entire sidewalk across Sunset Blvd. outside of Trousdale, where the event was being held.
Outside of the club, DJ Quik gave love to Nate Dogg’s families to the cameras… and in addition to that, it’s lookin like DJ Quik may just be down to work with the kid. Stay tuned and I’ll keep you posted on that shizz.
Other celebrity guests included Ryan Cabrera, Megan Goode, Chris Evans, and Natasha Henstridge, as well as the always beautiful Ashlan Gorse from E!. You know that chick is tall as fu*k!!
And you know what, it def felt like an old school West Coast Gangsta Rap party since there was like 6 squad cars of sheriffs outside, just itchin and waitin for some whoridaz.
Luckily, there wasn’t one. Keep the peace ladies and gentlemen
btw, u know people have been wondering why Snoop would release his new album on MySpace. Execs were telling the company they need to turn it around or else… I guess this is their first step in heading back into our culture… and they must’ve paid Snoop some major loot $$$
