Well not that the so called crown that Weezy holds is really that credible…greatest rapper alive just doesn’t fit right for the Cash Money die hard. But Weezy needs to be on guard becasue in the UK on Friday night, Kanye West gave possibly one of the best performances of his life at the Global Gathering Festival, where he headlined the UKs annual dance festival. Taking a somewhat humble role in front of the 25,000 crowd, as he performed, Touch the Sky, Diamonds from Sierra Leone, Gold Digger and All Falls Down, Kanye thanked the crowd with “Thank you for joining me tonight on my quest to become the number one artist in the world.” Yeah Kanye is not just looking to be the greatest rapper alive, he is looking a bit further a field than that. And with performances like that and his ego in check (for once) it looks like he could be a serious contender for that role.

The 5th-Annual Fashion Rocks concert seems to be trying to outshine last year’s already-extravagant show. With announced performers like Beyonce, Black Eyed Peas, Chris Brown, Fergie, Justin Timberlake, Lil’ Wayne, Keith Urban, Mariah Carey, Rihanna and Kid Rock, the concert truly and “uniquely celebrates the intersection of two of the most sexy cultural paradigms: fashion and music,” according to Richard Beckman, president of Conde Nast Media Group, which produces the event. The Fashion Rocks concert will be held at Radio City Music Hall on September 5th, and all proceeds will go to the Stand Up to Cancer Campaign. With more performers to be announced and an already high standard set after last year, there’s quite a bit of buzz surrounding the event.
Well maybe he is when the money comes rolling in. Sean Combs is gearing up to add another ‘reality tv show’ to his resume after VH1 gave him a whole wedge of money to work on a show called “I WANT TO WORK FOR DIDDY”. The show which is set to hit TVs in August shows various contestants walking to Brooklyn to get cheese cake, learning how to avoid chairs being thrown in dance studios …noooo only joking. The show will have the various wanna be errand boys/gals judged by the likes of Kevin Liles, Phil Robinson in the hopes that one of them might just be the new Assistant to Mr Sean Combs. Obviously his little myspace solicitation didn’t work then. Shame http://www.ihiphop.com/content/wp-content/uploads/2008/07/puffdaddy.jpg diddy
Missy , born on July 1st, celebrated her 37th birthday Tuesday night in NYC. (more…)
Looks like Pharrell and the Neptunes who are out on tour in Europe to promote their third album Seeing Sounds got a little overheated in a German club. Stripping down to display his abs pleased the females and a few of the men in the crowd at a bar in Berlin this past weekend. But will someone get him a towel please.
