Madea's Big Happy Family

Plot synopsis:

Madea, everyone’s favorite wise-cracking, take-no-prisoners grandma, jumps into action when her niece, Shirley, receives distressing news about her health. All Shirley wants is to gather her three adult children around her and share the news as a family. But Tammy, Kimberly and Byron are too distracted by their own problems: Tammy can’t manage her unruly children or her broken marriage; Kimberly is gripped with anger and takes it out on her husband; and Byron, after spending two years in jail, is under pressure to deal drugs again. It’s up to Madea, with the help of the equally rambunctious Aunt Bam, to gather the clan together and make things right the only way she knows how: with a lot of tough love, laughter…and the revelation of a long-buried family secret.

Dr Dre- I Need a Doctor

The Lies We Tell

If I made about 80 something million last year to be honest I wouldnt care enough to lie, and sell an image it would be apparent that I already have the publics backing. Therefore, I would continue to give you all what has sold already ME. An icon to say the least, arguably top 5 baddest women alive- yeah- I said it. She's the total package is she not. Who wants to debate about that?

Whats not debateable, although she would want it to be are these latest statements...Todays edition of 'The Lies we tell':

"People would be surprised as to the lack of experiences I've had,' she says. 'When I was 12, 13 I had my first boyfriend, and he was my boyfriend till I was 17. At that age, that was a long time. I've always been very loyal and a little more mature.

Though I was too young for it to really be a boyfriend - we didn't live together, we didn't, you know . . . That was my only experience with a guy, and since then I've only had one other boyfriend in my life - Jay

Three words- KNOCK IT OFF

This Cant be life

"Im in the matrix" words of Joe Buddens during the performance. Now let the record be clear that I support rappers who arent too big for their britches. I think more up close and personal appearances should be made, therefore bringing back that element of the fans identification with artists and their music. That has been lost amongst other things. Rap has left the solar system in a lot of ways- artists becoming aliens, andnot in the same context as Lil Wayne's admittance of not being a human being.

Wealth amongst people is few and far in between. Most people are trying to make it, and the ones who used to live like these rappers talk- are non existence. Forgive me for being harsh, they're either buried or in jail; the only two stops made on that yellow brick(PUN) road. With that being said, theres no relation, and if they're is- then there surely is no need to put your money in your pocket when you're just like me (hypothetically speaking) because if you remember correctly the objective is to be the hustler not the customer.

Now to the facts, with a Shady Records deal in tact, who would imagine the itinerary reading "perform on couch in a club in North Philly" I highly doubt Joey signed up for that. Much more respect is due to the fans FIRST, and I applaud Budden's recognition of that, and to the caliber of MC that he is now with a bigger machine behind him- that being the entire INTERSCOPE/SHADY/AFTERNATH umbrella. You may be tensing up just thinking about it- imagine how he feels living it..Roll the videotape please.

By the way Mood Muzik 4 is available now.

"I got a ----- named superhead" - Jadakiss

And let Karrine tell it, so does Hov. Rumors been twirling that the self-proclaimed,(then again I'm not sure cause who actually gives themself that name); well however you wanna call it, Miss Steffans has been letting on that she and the kid H to the izzo was shagging just a few years ago; right before Hip Hops King and Queen tied the knot. Now history has served that this woman has more lines than some looseleaf, not all which have been true; and I know a buzz-seeker when I see one, but in this case I'll leave the verdict to yall. At the end of the day everyone does say the name speaks for itself, u seen her in action- DON'T LIE.

T.I. in Solitary

Can you blame a man who spends his entire day around other men, and not by choice...sheesh give the guy a break; Now wall know T.I. And Tiny haven't been making the best decisions (I.e. The drug possession that got Tip violated and back in the clink for 11 months) but hey doesn't the notion "in love" count for anything? The modern day Bonnie and Clyde, and not just on record but in real life, have struck again!

Sadly the homey T.I. is the SHU (special Housing Unit) or solitary for those who know. Word has it that on the visit he and Tiny got a little too comfortable, and at some point his zipper was down and she was making it happen with her hand (trying to keep it as PG as we can). As I said that has landed Tip in the hole. Wonder if it was worth it? Tip said "No Mercy" bet the staff aint have no problem accomodating that request
