By: Hot Gossip Gal Seriously..is it just me or has Jayonce’s chi chi’s jumped a cuple of cups sizes? You saw my entry the other week..here she is again looking somewhat bigger than normal..the only time I see an increase in size like that without going under the knife is due to pregnancy..but looking at that dress on her..no chance of that. Hmmm but those bone corsets would help keep the curves too.

Bay Area rapper Spice 1 (born Robert Green Jr.) was shot early Monday morning in his hometown of Haywood, California and is said to be in critical condition. Spice-1 was reportedly shot in the face and in the chest and has been hospitalized at an undisclosed hospital. The good news is that Spice-1 is expected to recover from the shooting, since the bullet that struck his chest narrowly missed his heart.
By: Hot Gossip Gal Word on the street is that Sanaa Lathan likes the mamis more than she does the papis. Now I remember back in the day when she was dating Omar Epps someone telling me that if he messed her about she had a chick that would take care of him anyway and there was innocent old me thinking that they meant her home girls would be looking out for her. Turns out I wasn’t thinking literally enough. Anyhow whatever way she gets down..she one of my faves.
By Quibian Salazar-Moreno Lil Kim is busy working on a new mixtape called Ms. G.O.AT. where she gives tribute to all the female emcees that have inspired her by remaking their classic hits. Femcees like The Lady of Rage, MC Lyte, and Lauryn Hill get remake treatment from the Queen Bee. "This mixtape is special to me because I do a lot of female-rapper songs over, and it’s almost a tribute to them and a thank-you and a shout-out," Kim told MTV News. "If no one else is gonna recognize them, I’m gonna recognize the women I looked up to and respect and love.” But what everyone is really wondering about is the diss Kim sent Remy Ma’s way over 50’s “I Get Money” beat. "At the end of the day, I’m not gonna sit there and not say nothing," Kim said. "I spoke how I felt. She can take it how she wanna take it. She goes in on me, I go in back. It ain’t even nothing to think about. At the end of the day, it’s on wax, but whatever … because if you go in on me, I got the right to go in on you — bottom line! Next! I don’t even look at it as competition. I’m the hottest bitch out. I’m real cocky these days, huh? I’m loving it.”

By Quibian Salazar-Moreno Wyclef Jean is currently promoting his new album, “Carnival Volume II (Memoirs of an Immigrant)” which hits stores today. He’s doing a handful of interviews and one of the most popular questions he gets is, of course, about Lauryn Hill and the Fugees reunion that never happened. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Wyclef shared what it was like to go on tour with L-Boogie last year in Europe. “Man, it was like pulling thirty-two teeth out of my mouth,” Wyclef told Rolling Stones. “You can’t be on a stage an hour and a half late, like she was. So I blew up on, like, the tenth night. Cursed her out. I was like, ‘Listen, either you want to fucking do this shit, or I’m going to fucking go home.’ I felt sorry for her, because I think she needs psychiatric help. I felt like she’s bipolar. You can’t get angry with someone who’s sick. So I even called her mom, and I stressed to her, ‘Yo, you need to get her psychiatric help.’ But I think they all fear her to death. She wasn’t always like this — but if someone has the ego and you keep feeding the ego, it’s going to turn monstrous.” Here’s the tracklisting to Clef’s new album: 1. Intro 2. Riot (featuring Serj Tankian and Sizzla) 3. Sweetest Girl (Dollar Bill) (featuring Akon, Lil Wayne and introducing Niia) 4. Welcome To The East (featuring Sizzla) 5. Slow Down (featuring T.I.) 6. King & Queen (featuring Shakira) 7. Fast Car (featuring Paul Simon) 8. What About The Baby (featuring Mary J. Blige) 9. Hollywood Meets Bollywood (Immigration) (featuring Chamillionaire) 10. Any Other Day (featuring Norah Jones) 11. Heaven’s In New York 12. Selena (featuring Melissa Jimenez) 13. Touch Your Button Carnival Jam (featuring Will.I.Am, Melissa Jimenez, Machel Montano, Daniela Mercury, Black Alex, Djkout Mizik) 14. Outro

By: Hot Gossip Gal DeHaven is now saying he is worried about his safety since speaking out about El Presidente Jay Z. I find it highly unlikely that Jay Z would want to damage DeHaven anymore than he already did in No Hook. Grown men need to stop blaming others for their lack of a situation basically.

By: Hot Gossip Gal But it has to go to Ghostface for telling Tony Yayo to ‘suck a big fat d**k’ when being asked about Yayo’s comments about Ghost not writing on his classic Supreme Clientèle. Ghost is a lil upset about a lot of things right now and once again has Def Jam forgot that he is on their roster when it comes to marketing and promotion of his new album? Looks that way…again.
By Quibian Salazar-Moreno Former Little Brother producer 9th Wonder just released his new album, “Dream Merchant Vol. 2,” a couple of months ago and now he’s gearing up to drop another. On January 29, 2008 he will drop, “The Wonder Years,” an album that will feature appearances from Erykah Badu, Talib Kweli, Q-Tip, Teedra Moses, Mos Def, Little Brother and others. "Sonically people can expect bigger sounding beats, more expansion of my sound," 9th said. "There will be an element of classic, throwback R&B, but with a current twist. With this album I’m not only defining myself, but I’m defining people in my age group. It’s not necessarily an underground or overground thing, you just want to find the music that fits you and where you are in your life right about now. That’s what The Wonder Years is for me." 9th said the purpose for this album is to make music for people in his age group that want something a bit more positive and not the everyday stuff you get on the radio. “My calling is soul music – just good for the soul and good to listen to,” 9th said. “As regular, uneventful and boring as that may sound, once you get a taste of some soul music it’s like, ‘Finally something I can listen to around my kids, something I can listen to at cookouts.’ It’s more reminiscent of the great pantheon of Black music, and I want to be mentioned in that somewhere. Somebody has to come along and join what Common and all of these other great MCs started, we really have to start looking at the situation of how we affect young Black men and women. In the past music has been used for good, music has always had a message in it, and I just want to be a part of that legacy.” Click here for his interview
