R&N - 02/06/08 - Hump Day EXCLUSIVES!

Dilly here with my all new WEDNESDAY spot. Now you know everyday you can get all the latest stuff on music at the ever-blazing Music Forecast blog but now you should know that when it's "Hump Day", it's time to see what extra helping of madness Dilly has in store for everybody.

Pimp C Death: Too Much Lean
I'm not gonna speak on this too much but it has been announced and ruled that Pimp C died of an accidental overdose. Apparently, Mr. Butler and taken some cough medication and with an ongoing breathing problem the combination proved to be deadly. To be honest, I am not surprised as this is what I expected in the beginning. But man, it's a shame. The much-hyped "LEAN" took out a legend.

Jay Z & Mary J. Blige Tour
Never to be outdone by his little brother, Kanye West, who just recently announced his "Glow In The Dark" Tour with N.E.R.D., Lupe Fiasco, and Rihanna. Jigga Man has announced that he is joining forces with Queen of R&B, Mary J. Blige. Details are still vague, but I'm sure when it comes 'round, this is going to be a hot ticket. Now I luv Jay-Z, but damn Jay just can't let nobody shine on their own, can he.

The Game Headin' To JailNow case you didn't know, I don't like The Game, I think he's lame and fake and should have given 50 his due credit instead of frontin' like he single-handedly made all his first joints. Anyways, The Game was last year was charged with making criminal threats, possessing a firearm in a school zone, and exhibiting a firearm in the presence of an officer after allegedly getting into a fight during a pick-up game of basketball. Previously pleading Not Gulilty after facing 5 years in jail, The Game agreed to a plea bargain and will now spend 4 MONTHS in jail. Now if you remember when I posted about Busta, who had so many charges that will have put him away for close to 10 years but walked, you would think The Game would try and do the same, but Nah, not dumba** Game. Game would rather plead guilty in court, even though he's "innocent" explaining,

"The crazy part about this is that I've had guns before in my life," he explained. "But this time, I didn't have a gun. And because one person said I had a gun and coaxed his homies into saying that I had a gun, I'm in a predicament where I'm asking, Do I want to spend another million dollars to fight this trial so who knows what jury's gonna come in and say I'm guilty? Or do I want to save my money, go sit down for four months and accept this felony they're trying to give me for no reason?"

Sounds like to me he just trying to go to jail to build up his "cred" and come out drop a new album and try and sell millions of records. Somebody tell him the game don't work like that no more. Thank god. Man, I can't wait for this cat to retire.

Ryan Leslie Is Ready

The man who discovered Cassie and made Diddy look good for .5 and who created a deafening buzz on Myspace and his blog, before blogs and myspace really took off is ready for his solo time. Ryan Leslie has been trying to get into the game on his own for awhile, after graduating from Harvard, yes Havard at 16, yes 16, no lie and shocking everybody and their mama when he said he was moving to NYC to pursure singing. He made his way in the game making beats, crafting joints for Beyonce, New Edition, 112, Cheri Dennis and other Bad Boy artists and then grew a following in Europe that love RL like he Chris Brown. Well not quite but they do like his joints. Peep my fav. song of his "Overdose" below.

Long story short, the U.S. are finally given him a chance and is set to drop his album in June and has the industry buzzing with his track "Diamond Girl." The lead single is unexpected burning up radio waves and remixes have been poppin' up left and right. Listen to the track here, and remember where u heard it at.

Lil Wayne the DoctorWeezy never stop rapping. That's a fact. Mr. Carter got this acapella freestyle floating around the net and video portals and it's called Dr. Carter. People loving it so much now they gonna record it. One of the people who caught wind of this was Swizz Beatz who told Wayne he got a beat that he need to build this song on. The track was for Jay-Z's Kingdome Come album has flatlines, and heartbeat sounds throughout the beat and was intended to have that "Save The Game" vibe Jay Z was going with back then. Well now it's going to the other Carter and MF3.0 we'll have it soon as it's out, 'til then here go the freestyle.

Usher tryin' to gain some heatUsher. The man who needs to seriously come with it on his next album in order to overcome his damage image after the marriage fiasco has two tracks floating around. Now apparently the lead single for his upcoming album was suppose to be "Make It Rain" with T-Pain but after two, three months being out w/out any steam being picked up the Usher camp has released another joint that is the new lead single. The song features Young Jeezy and is called, wait for it..."Make Love In The Club." Lol, yeah I know but the song is hot, still can't figure out what's missing though. Peep both tracks there.

Mary J. Doing Fine w/ Lil Wayne and SwizzOfficiall remix to Just Fine w/ Lil Wayne and Swizz Beats, throwback beat, w/ a nice sample but I can't think of what track it is off the top of my head. Either way enjoy the goodness here.

Janelle Monae: New R&B?

Janelle Monae is all kind of crazy but her sound is infectious. Starting out with making tracks on Purple Ribbon All Stars Got Purp vol. 2 and making a cameo on Idlewild Sdtk. Janelle made enough noise to get signed by Diddy on Bad Boy and is getting play with her track Violet Stars Happy Hunting. This girl is fly but ever since she got signed she done flipped her style and did sumtin' crazy to her hair as you can see in the pictures. Anyway, her music is still something to listen to. Let us know what you think here.

Kidz In The Hall

These boys made noise with their Just Blaze endorsed album "School Was My Hustle," spawning the underground hit, "Till Tha Wheels Fall Off." Now they back w/ their unique, and another throw back to the "Golden Age" of Hip-Hop sound with their track "Driving Down The Block." Similar to The Cool Kidz, but different in their own right, check the track here.

Man you know Jay can't let nobody shine for too long. Look at the old Roca-fella roster nobody on there was even close to Jay. Then Nas comes out with Hip Hop is Dead and then Jay drops Kingdom Come right after.
