DIDDY IS AT IT AGAIN!
Diddy, accompanied by his new female entourage from Making the Band 3, made a December 20 appearance on MTV's TRL to promote the new Notorious B.I.G Duets album. We have a feeling Diddy's new "band" will sell bout 5 albums and then disappear. Aubrey O'Day is definitely the break out star. (And why is she the only one dressed sexy?) Did Diddy even give this group a name yet? But we digress.We don't think B.I.G would be happy that his boy using some wack, so-called "band" to help promote his album. Plus, we were told the album is terrible and is "a bad idea that never should have happened."

TONI BRAXTON GETS ZERO SUPPORT FROM NEW LABEL
We recently received an email from Atlanta Gossip that went a little something like this:
"After asking to be dropped from Arista Records, the singer singed with
Blackground Records, owned by Barry Hankerson, the Uncle/Manager of the late
Aaliyah. With anticipated success of her comeback album Libra, Blackground Records
has not promoted her latest album and has only released one music video to
their credit. 'Is it me or does it seem that Toni's album is not being given
a big push from her new label?' said one music insider."


Hmmmmmmmm...We love you Toni!

RAPPERS CHARLIE BALTIMORE AND GAME GET COZY ON THE WEST COAST
Remember female rapper Charlie Baltimore? She was signed to Murder Inc and used to be in lots of Ja Rule and Ashanti videos. Then she disappeared. Well, she recently resurfaced here with her new found friend anti-50 cent rapper The Game.

BEYONCE DISSES HER "GIRLS" KELLY AND MICHELLE
The New DC?
By now, most of you have heard Beyonce's new single Check on It from the Destiny's Child #1's CD. (The song is growing on us slowly but surely.) There isn't much substance to "Check on It," but according to our sources, there is some drama associated with the song.

We heard rumors that DC members Kelly and Michelle didn't want Bouncy's single on DC's #1's album because it's NOT a Destiny's Child song. (Hollyhood has to side with Kelly and Michelle on that one.) Bouncy didn't let her girls Kelly and Michelle sing on the track or even make a cameo appearance in the video. Yet Bouncy's Pink Panther costars, actors Steve Martin and Kevin Kline, get more than enough face time in the video. Talk about cross promotion! The entire video appears to be a promotional vehicle for Bouncy's new movie The Pink Panther which has already had its release date moved back to February 2006.

For all of our die-hard Bouncy fans, are you really going to pay to see this? The 'Hood wants to hear from you!

GRILLZ IS NUMBER ONE RINGTONE IN AMERICA
Jermaine Dupri promised to start an epidemic with the song Grillz he produces for Nelly featuring Paul Wall and Big Gipp. And he's done just that. The song Grillz recently became the number one ringtone in the United States. We're certain Nelly is sporting his "Penny Candy Smile on the Rocks" to celebrate this historic accomplishment.

RAPPER DMX LEAVES JAY-Z AND DEF JAM, SIGNS WITH SONY MUSIC
When DMX completes his 70-day jail sentence for probation violation, he will be one the newest artists signed to Sony Music Group.

The rapper cut all ties with his previous label Def Jam after hinting earlier this year that Jay-Z's presence as the label's president put a strain on their relationship, according to MTV.com DMX is a little "special" so, the 'Hood will be watching to see how this works out...

NEW MUSIC WINNERS AND SINNERS
Word on the street is that Jamie Foxx's new CD entitled Unpredictable is HOT and Mary J. Blige's latest effort is NOT. That's right, Foxx's CD is a winner. "He actually has a number of collaborations with Kanye West, Common and even Mary J. Blige," our sources told us. "Maybe Mary J. should have spent more time working on her own project."

TOOKIE'S FINAL GOODBYE
Hundreds of people converged on the South Los Angeles neighborhood where Stanley Tookie Williams co-founded the Crips to say a final goodbye. We're still not sure how we should feel about this.

The casket full of Tookie is a bit dramatic. He is not a celebrity.
Maybe we should deal with the living and not show the deceased.

enjoying your blog.......
