By Quibian Salazar-Moreno Last year’s “Blue Carpet Treatment” was a welcomed return for Snoop Dogg, and now the rapper is hoping for a similar response for his upcoming album “Ego Trippin’”. Snoop announced that the album will drop in March on Doggystyle/Geffen Records with the first single being “Sensual Seduction”. The video for the song will debut on November 28 on MTV’s TRL and Snoop will personally introduce his video on BET’s 106 & Park on November 29. To get you amped for the release of the album, Snoop’s reality show, “Doggfather” will debut on E! on December 9. The show will focus on Snoop’s home life, similar to the The Osbournes, Hogan Knows Best and Gene Simmon’s Family Jewels. “It is based on the life and times of Snoop Dogg, as well as me as a father, husband and the entertainer that I am,” Snoop told Access Hollywood. “You ain’t gonna see that bull****. You gonna see some real stuff, you gonna see me doing what I do, you know what I’m saying? A lot of people don’t understand that I am a father. They don’t understand what goes into my life. They just think I’m a superhero. They think I go in the phone booth, get dressed and come out and save the day. So I am showing that I am actually a real person and I go through real things in life.”

by Hot Gossip Gal You know what..I am inclined to agree that a billboard of Jayonce in a bikini would be a serious distraction looking at the way she is falling out of this dress at the AMA’s the other night…maybe those people in Vegas were seeing something we weren’t..well up until now that is..I never realized she had it like that to be honest..
By Rizoh: Michael Vick is hoping to cut his prison sentence short, even though his sentencing isn’t until December 10. Vick surrendered to U.S. Marshals three weeks early, according to reports from ESPN. He’s facing charges for illegal dogfighting charges. Said Vick’s attorney, Billy Martin, in a statement: “From the beginning, Mr. Vick has accepted responsibility for his actions, and his self-surrender further demonstrates that acceptance. Michael wants to again apologize to everyone who has been hurt in this matter, and he thanks all of the people who have offered him and his family prayers and support during this time.” Vick pled guilty to a federal dogfighting charge in August, after his co-defendants agreed to cooperate with law enforcement. The Atlanta Falcons quarterback may face anywhere from 2 years to 5 years for the felony charges. He’s being held at Northern Neck Regional Jail in Warsaw until his sentencing.
by Rizoh: In a dramatic MySpace post titled “I Quit,” Saigon announced that he’s officially done with rap music. Sai railed against the music industry and the media for being fake and exploitative. “This sh*t is too fake for me,” he griped in the blog post. “I found myself getting caught up in the bullshit but now Ill gladly walk away.” He continued: “F**k this bum a** rap game anyway, its full of fake a** n****s who pump poison to the kids, make a few dollars and act like they’re larger then life when they know their music is detrimental to their fucking communities, If it ain’t about sex, its about drugs or violence, where are the songs about getting an education, or being responsible parents and sh*t, or stopping the gang violence.” Some may say that Saigon left the game prematurely. In case anyone has questions about his musical achievements, he contends that he left plenty of good music that attest to his lyrical prowess. “I left enough great music behind for people to understand I was good at rapping, that’s all I ever wanted out of it.” Saigon’s Atlantic debut, The Greatest Story Never Told, has been postponed several times. Last we checked, it was scheduled for release in 2008. There’s no word on whether that album will still see the light of day.
by Hot Gossip Gal That’s the word anyway. I am sure if Jay is on there so will Puffy..they are so best buddies now..but anyhow this is just something Whoo Kid divulged but can you believe that?
by Hot Gossip Gal Well the man who is still sitting on the shelf after what seems like a whole lotta years is threatening to smack the shit outta Joey for saying his name or something…anything for a bit of the limelight I guess.

By Quibian Salazar-Moreno John Legend’s last album “Once Again,” was a laidback, adult-oriented album, but it looks like he’s heading back to the hip-hop sound of his first album. In an interview with Billboard, Legend said that he plans on working with Kanye West again, plus Pharrell Williams and has already done a few tracks with will.i.am. "We’re really just starting," Legend told Billboard. "I’m usually pretty prolific and pretty quick with my output, so I’m guessing I’ll be done with it by the end of the spring and put it out either late summer or early fall. That’s what I’m headed towards." Legend is also working on promoting and pushing his new label, Homeschool Records and his first artist on the label Estelle, whose album is due out in February. "I was very involved with the whole thing,” Legend said. “I wrote with her on just about every track and … made a lot of key decisions when it came to track selection, producers, getting the right people involved. I treated it almost like it was my own." Legend also signed his little brother, Anthony Vaughn, who is also a singer, and up and coming rapper, Diggy.
By: Hot GossipGal Last week R Kelly’s long time publicist stepped down from her role. Turns out the reason for both her and her husband disassociating them from the singer is supposed to be that he asked them to lie on the stand in his impending trial…now I heard from someone pretty close to the Daniels family that they had just had enough of Kelly’s total disregard for morals and ethics when doing business. Ms. Daniels has been watching over him for 14 years..that’s a lot of years…wonder how many run ins she has avoided with the press, irate parents during that time.
