I can’t believe I didn’t hear about this sooner! OK so I’m sure all of you have heard that Drake is producing a new Aaliyah album and people are divided as to whether he should or shouldn’t. In Drake’s defense, he’s a big fan of hers and he was in love with her to the point where he wrote a letter to her NINE YEARS AFTER SHE DIED. Creepy??
So when Missy Elliot and Timbaland heard about Drake’s plans they said that it wouldn’t be considered an Aaliyah album unless they’re involved since, you know, they were friends and all. Now I don’t know about you but that sounds logical to me but according to Missy and Timbaland Drake hasn’t contacted them yet…
…And now the dog himself DMX is putting in his 2 cents about this and to be honest with you, he is saying everything that I had in my mind when I first heard of the news about this “album”. I love Ice-T and all but I’m going to have to disagree with him when he said 50 Cent was the last Gangsta Rapper because, to me, 50 Cent’s name is how much he’s worth when compared to DMX. If only people spoke up when Eminem was producing Pac’s album!
Got a radio show in 15 minutes with my man Ricki P. and going to be playing some of that old school funk. You can stream it live on http://www.ckdj.net and click Listen Online on the top right hand corner and that should give you the hook up. If you tuned in, let me know what you thought of the show
RIP Don Cornelius
What a way to start Black History Month. I was reading the paper yesterday and I read that the Great Don Cornelius of Soul Train fame committed suicide but he didn’t leave a note. Personally, I find it fishy that someone would take his own life and not leave a note and I really hope the Police can piece together what exactly happened and why it happened. I’m big on the ’70s and Soul Train was a big influence in a lot of people’s lives so news like this is shocking. Now, I love Soul music and even have a show where I cater to the music from the days of old and I’m not going to lie, I modeled my Soul Sessions show after the Soul Train show with Don Cornelius. My condolences go out to the Cornelius family. I guess the only thing left to say is we wish you love, peace and soul brother and seeing how I’m taking radio we can dedicate a song to the legendary host that gave the Train its Soul.
Rest in Peace ~Sep 1936 – Feb 2012~
