Foxy Duets Track

That Foxy track was mentioned on MTV.com:

[Doug E.] Fresh also said that when Brown was in the studio with Diddy recently to record a track for the upcoming Notorious B.I.G. album, Duets: The Final Chapter (see “Biggie Duets LP Features Eminem, Snoop, Tupac, Nas, Ludacris”), someone had to tap the beat of the song on her shoulder, so that she could keep her rhymes on pace. The track didn’t make the album’s final cut, and Fresh said he wasn’t sure what would come of the tune, which might be used as a B-side to a Duets single or make its way onto Black Roses.

Happy Holidays!

I just wanted to say Happy Holidays and wish everyone who might read my blog a happy and healthy 2006. Thanks for reading. :)

Thoughts on Duets

After listening to it all, here are my top 5 favorites:

1. It Has Been Said featuring Diddy, Eminem and Obie Trice.
2. Whatchu Want featuring Jay-Z and Diddy.
3. Living In Pain featuring 2Pac, Nas and Mary J. Blige.
4. Nasty Girl featuring Diddy, Nelly, Jagged Edge and Jazze Pha.
5. Beef featuring Mobb Deep and Diddy.

Honorable mention:

Just a Memory featuring The Clipse and Diddy.
Hold Ya Head featuring Bob Marley.
1970 Somethin’ featuring Game and Faith Evans.

The thing is, even the tracks I didn’t love, I still liked. Spit Your Game, Wake Up Now and Hustler’s Story are all listenable tracks and the rest are fine as well. Put it this way: they’ll all be in my playlist, which means I really like the album. I look forward to getting it.

Cast of House Signed Happy Holidays Card

I received a card signed by the cast of House today. You can read more about it at DrGregHouse.com.

Listen to the Whole Biggie Duets Album

You can do it at MTV.com. That’s what I’ll be listening to this evening. I’ll write about it here after I’m done listening.

The Community Admin Show Promo (Banned User, November 2005)

For the show, I created a promo featuring a (pretend) banned user (played by Jeremy). Check it out.

Simpsons: The Complete Sixth Season for $9.90

I picked up Simpsons: The Complete Sixth Season for $9.90 (after rebate) shipped with tax (Massachusets). Lowest on PriceGrabber from someone I’d buy from is $32.48. So, I figure that’s a pretty good deal.

I’m Wit Whateva by The Notorious B.I.G. featuring Jim Jones, Juelz Santana and Lil’ Wayne

You can listen to it over at Warner Urban, along with 5 other tracks and the Hold Ya Head video. Really looking forward to this album. I’ve liked a great deal of what I have heard.

Dumber Than Mud

While I was doing some reading at Mena Trott’s blog, I came across this post and watched the video.

He seemed like a nice enough guy and the advice he gave was good, common sense advice, certainly. But, one of the things he said was “kids are naive and, to be real frank about it, they’re dumb as mud sometimes.” No arguments here. Sometimes, they are. Of course, adults (18 through 200) are naive and dumb as mud sometimes, as well. What Mrs. Trott said was good, as well.

It’s like anything else. People kill people. People are nuts. So, by extension: people who blog kill people and/or are nuts. But, people who don’t blog kill people and/or are nuts. It’s like what some people would say about homeschooling, which is bogus. People who homeschool kill people and are nuts. But, people who don’t homeschool kill people and are nuts. Our population does it – as such, people from all walks and of all interests do it.

Diddy Gives The Lox Their Publishing

According to AllHipHop.com:

The Lox and Bad Boy mogul Sean ”Diddy” Combs have settled a music publishing dispute after a furious on-air clash that was broadcast on Hot 97 last month. …

“What he did was sweet. He came back [with his offer] and I almost jumped out my seat,” Styles P said to Angie Martinez. “Basically, he gave us all our publishing back. He didn’t have to do what he did. In the business world, what he did, was like a four-leaf clover. The results was great.”

You’re kidding me. After they get on the radio, make a big deal out of something that they themself did and are to blame for, made it out like he was getting more than he was getting, that he was not being fair, threatening his life (Jadakiss was and anyone can see that), etc. etc…. they come back with this?! You’re kidding me. “He didn’t have to do it.” LOL, what were you on the radio kicking up dust for? On the radio, they made it like he had to do it. Like he was a crook if he didn’t. Hilarious. In my opinion, they come out of this looking very, very bad.

I doubt he just gave it to them, but if he did… The Lox are the luckiest people on the face of the earth. I had one of my stocks go out of business – I don’t remember them giving me my money back.

By the way, check out Hot 97. The day they were bashing Diddy and Diddy responded, etc. they had the interviews up within like an hour or so, I think. Where’s the interview today where they make have come to an agreement? No where. Perfect example. Diddy was right (and it’s common sense): it is like WWF.
