been a very interesting month in the music business.
In my last article, I addressed the local strip-scene
and how I felt about some of the strippers.
This month I will update you on "whatz crackin'"
on the national scene and some of the parties
I recently checked out.
Be Caught is Back!!!
of weeks ago I had the chance to check out one
of the hottest rap groups that Portland has
to offer. Dale Davis of the Portland Trailblazers
signed Kant Be Caught to his new company
and they had a big showcase performance in the
heart of downtown Portland, OR. The event took
place at one of my favorite party spots, the
Red Sea. I got to the club right before the
group hit the stage and the place was packed.
I was straight enjoying their new joints and
proud to see these catz puttin' it down live.
If you weren't there, you missed a treat because
it was a bomb ass show. Keep up the good work
y'all and reach ya boy that new CD when it drops....Big
Headlines-- Luther has a stroke... TLC says
goodbye to the stage...
Hip-Hop Feud continues...
Vandross, one of the best baby-making music
singers of all time, recently suffered a stroke.
He is currently undergoing medical treatment
in an undisclosed New York hospital. Luther
just turned 52 and has had a lifetime of hit
records. He is also a five-time Grammy Award
Winner. I wish you a speedy recovery man and
I hope you'll continue to make that good shhhhh......
will be performing their last live performance
on June 1, 2003. Both Chilli and T.Boz said
that it is too hard to continue without their
friend and former band member Lisa "Left Eye"
Lopes, who was tragically killed in a car wreck
last year. The show is going to take place at
Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
TLC will be honoring their late band member
as well as Aaliya and RUN-DMC's Jam Master Jay.
It is uncertain if the girls will release any
new albums under the TLC name, but a greatest
hits album is due out this fall. I wish you
both well and thanks for the beautiful talent
that you've shared with us all. God Bless!!!
vs. Ja Rule/Murder Inc.
battle continues with these catz and in my opinion
it's not looking too good for Ja Rule. He recently
said on a free-style record that 50 Cent was
loose change. He also said that Suge Night had
told him that Dr. Dre used to take transvestites
home. Say what??? He says that's the reason
Eminem be dressing in pumps and tight little
dresses. Ja Rule then goes on to say that he
couldn't tell if Truth Hurts was a man or a
woman. Ouch!!! 50 Cent says that Ja Rule is
simply making a desperate attempt to keep his
name alive. In a remix of Tupac's "Hail Mary",
Eminem lashes back with some funny shit! He
says "You ain't a killer, you a pussy/ That
ecstasy got you all emotional and mushy." Damnnn!!!
And that's only one line of the song. To hear
the whole thing, pick up a copy of the Invasion
Part 2 Mix Tape in stores soon.
of the Month - Ms.
sexy sister is one of the coolest chicks you
ever want to meet. She is a hard-working beautiful
mommy that's straight "Bout It"!!!
with my column in next month's magazine, I
will be adding a new feature entitled "Who's
Hot?" This article will feature an up and
coming artist or record label that's doing
thangz in the Northwest. Brian of Exotic
Magazine thought that it would be cool
to give some exposure to these individuals
and companies that are working hard to get
off the ground. So if you're a recording artist
or have your own label, please contact me
for the hook-up.
can be reached at email@example.com.
next month y'all be cool and keep it Crackin'!!!
