This month is Breast Cancer Awareness Month--so get pink with it!

THE BIG STORY THIS WEEK all have one common theme--Chitown native award winning rapper/producer Kanye West. After weeks without an official title,
Kanye West's fifth effort will be called "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy," the rapper announced on Twitter this week. The news arrives after West confirmed on Twitter that the album, originally titled "Good Ass Job," will be released on Nov. 22. "The official album title is and always was... MY BEAUTIFUL DARK TWISTED FANTASY," West wrote, adding that some of his weekly "GOOD Fridays" releases will be included on the follow-up to 2008's "808s & Heartbreak." The rapper also said that the "first song on the album is called 'Dark Fantasy' produced [by] the RZA co-produced by me and No I.D."

"All of the Lights" will be the album's next single, although after his
Bon Iver and Gil Scott-Heron collaboration "Lost in the World" leaked online last week, West said that he is not releasing any unfinished samples of the song.

"I ain't letting no leaks have any affect on my song choices... All of the Lights is the next single but wait till yall here the final!!!!!" wrote West.

Ye released a song called "Christian Dior Denim Flow" for G.O.O.D Friday last week. On this track, he joins forces with John Legend, Kid Cudi, Pusha T, Lloyd Banks and Ryan Leslie.
wrote that he is currently "in Paris designing the type face for the album packaging."

The rapper released new single "Runaway" this week, and has announced plans to screen "Runaway," his 40-minute film companion to the album, in Paris which took place Tuesday.

"I'm so excited to show my work in Paris," West wrote while linking to a small screenshot from the film.

Here is a track listing of some of the songs from his upcoming CD:

"Power" (featuring Dwele) (produced by Kanye West and S1)

"Lost in the World" (featuring Justin Vernon of Bon Iver) (produced by Kanye West, Jon Brion, and Justin Vernon)

"Chain Heavy"

"Mama's Boyfriend"

"All of the Lights" (featuring Drake & Tony Williams)

"Devil in a New Dress" (produced by Bink)

"Runaway" (featuring Pusha T)

"Dark Fantasy" (produced by RZA, Kanye West, and No I.D.)

"See Me Now" (featuring Beyoncé & Charlie Wilson) (produced by Kanye West, No I.D., and Lex Luger)

"Touch It" (featuring


In more Ye newz, after 36 seasons, Kanye broke the tradition of the musical guest on “Saturday Night Live”having the signature black, instrument filled stage changed to an all white, backlit canvas. There, he, dressed in his now iconic red leather outfit and multi gold chains, performed “Power” ( with new lyrics replacing the ones dissing SNL) and "Runaway" with Pusha T, his signee to his G.O.O.D. Label and the half of the rap duo Clipse. During his performance, SNL censors didn’t bleep all f the expletives from the song leaving in a couple of “assholes” on the airwaves.

Speaking of TV shows, Ye cancelled his appearance to tape the Oprah Winfrey Show this week. West was scheduled to appear on the show to speak about his post-Taylor Swift journey back to the top during the past year, but it seems that 'Ye booked a bit too soon. He's apparently canceled the appearance with short notice, leaving Oprah incensed and insulted for putting her producers in a bind. "All the arrangements had been made ... She was going to ask Kanye everything. Oprah is not happy," a source recently told In Touch Weekly.

Oh oh. Bad move on Ye's camp. O is God when it comes to moving sales on products. We hope O reschedules him--which we ar sure will happen. As they say, any publicity is good publicity.


And in more Ye newz, he is making waves on his part in the remix to Chris Brown's hit, “Deuces.” Apparently, the lyrics refer to his breakup to model Amber Rose.
Here is a sample of the lyrics:

You know what yo, you a b*tch/you should have a travel agent cause you a trip/you should make your own toilet tissue since you the sh*t/but all you got is some f*cking issues you f*cking b*tch/I hate you but I love your mom/give her a kiss for me, her second son/get your mind right baby or get your ish together/you gonna be hot a lil while, i’mma be rich forever/girl seduces, they come in deuces/ but when I cut em off they always become a nuances/Niggas take my old flows and they take my old swag/he just took my old b*tch and turned it to his new b*tch/I’m stupid but I won’t get my drama on/What I’m dealing with is too real to comment on/Jay finally got it through my head not to run my mouth/so when ya’ll talking bout you know who/I don’t know what you’re talking bout/

According to Mediatakeout, they assume that Ye is a bit gassed faced that Amber went after football star Reggie Bush who got beef with Ye when he knocked boots with reality show star Kim Kardashian after Bush and Kardashian broke up and threatened to kick his butt over it.

But Ye may be in more hot water himself over someone’s boo as Mediatakeout got a pic of he and singer Maxwell’s former girlfriend, model Selita Ebanks (PICTURED)at a fashion show while he’s currently staying in Paris.

It has also has been certified platinum for one-million downloads on I-Tunes. It also also stays another week at No. 9 on the Hot Rap Tracks chart.
We have predicted the song would reach its peak at No. 3 on the Hot 100 so we will see in the next couple weeks if we were correct.

In unrelated newz, Nelly will be a part of the 10 year celebration of Bet’s 106 and Park. Titled '106 & Park, The Celebration, Ten Years Live,' the anniversary special aired October 6.

Although the show officially airs Oct 12, there is a video of Dodson on the red carpet (and we are sure there are some cell cam downloads on the net, too).

Opinion makers are saying that Dodson could become the first openly gay rapper. WTF????. Does he even qualify as a rapper? We are sure the gay communtiy does NOT want to claim him as a role model nor its hip-hop community !

Anyway, to see him on the red carpet, go to

Oh, the humanity! We smell a Halloween costume comin for sure of an unkempt Afro with red bandanna.

Chitown native and transgenered hip-hop dancer Sidney Star is making newz on her explosive reveal of her dating andrelationships with several hip-hop stars including an alleged romance with STL rapper Chingy. According to, Star did an interview recently with a San Francisco radio station ,and here is what was said:
Radio Station: Did you date Chingy?
Star: Ummm . . . I’m gonna say we had a relationship, a friendship/relationship. There was definitely something with us. We had a relationship going on for almost two years.
RS: : So off the top, he knew [you were born a man]?
Star: Yes
.RS: So wow, y’all are not cool no more.
Star: Right now, since all of this has happened, I’m steering myself away from it all . . . the haters messed it up. I do want to say that I tried to use this to get some type of fame. If I wanted to do this to get fame, I would have done this two years ago.
RS: How many other popular dudes were involved.
Star: Chingy is NOT the only celebrity that I’ve been with.

To hear the interview copy this entire link:



Speaking of Chingy, he spoke on the Star rumors on Hot 104.1 FM on Young Dip’s show this week. He basically said that that he didn't know the person. He said that he's always going to take pics with his fans, whether they are fat, skinny or tranny (Hmmm) . He said at a show he was performing, the trans-sexual was up there as a dancer and he had no idea what was up at that time. He said that "Sidney" is basically there for a come up off his good name.

Hmm, we can side with Chingy on not knowing what was up with Sidney at first glance cuz we can't even see any testosterone anywhere on her!
Last checked, the video of Chingy's rebuttal was strangely omitted but it was last seen at

In unrelated Chingy newz, he had a taste of "who dat is " recently performing overseas. During a recent performance at the Butter Factory in Singapore, the crowd reportedly did not recollect who Chingy was as the question was whispered throughout the crowd. Chingy, who also was accompanied by Rich Money and his personal deejay (We assumed it was Hot 104.1’s DJ Sno) performed for about 45 minutes and according to reports, the crowd were blank faced and one could hear folk saying, "I only know 'Right Thurr'," Some of the crowd reportedly left midway through his set. The reason for the lackluster enthusiasm according to reports was Chingy’s incognito appearance in the club and no hype on him being there. It was also reported that after this gig, he did have some hype during an impromptu one track set at Avalon at Large at the Sands Expo performing his biggest hit,'Right Thurr'.

Wow, we hope Chingy gets the right comeback akin to his STL rap colleague Nelly cuz the way things are going, he will become a hip-hop wonder, as in wonder what happened to him.

"It was the first time we'd seen ourselves dubbed like that, it was pretty funny," Hamm told the Reporter. "It is amazing how the show is now reaching out internationally. It seems incredible that something that seems so specific to a particular time and place in America -- a New York ad agency in the early '60s -- can reach an international audience."
"Mad Men" has become a cult hit in the English-speaking world, but the series is only just starting to get a following in continental Europe, the Reporter said.

Business tycoon Ted Turner was honored at St. Louis Zoo last weekend with the 2010 Perkins Partner in Conservation Medal. He also was scheduled to speak before the crowd with a speech, but he had a falling spell before going up to the podium. From Deb Peterson’s Schmooze report on STL Today, “ As he took the stage, he stumbled backward against a railing and the audience collectively gasped. Then he stepped forward to the lectern, swayed for a moment and collapsed. As people started yelling "Is there a doctor in the house?" and "Someone call 911," I was getting my phone out to call the desk. But within seconds, Turner popped up and stood at the lectern again. "I'm O.K.," he reassured the wide-eyed crowd. He muttered that he'd had a busy day and not much to eat so wouldn't be delivering the talk he had prepared but would join the crowd for dinner afterward.”

Hmm, we wonder if he lost any of his color when he passed out? LOL Old schoolers who know about Turner coloring old black and white flicks on his station WTBS TV would get the joke. LOL

Why do battery life is so short when using batteries in I-Pods? Why did that male student from Rutgers secretly videotape his male roommate making out with his boyfriend? And why did the roommate who eventually committed suicide by jumping off of a bridge, post his expecting demise on Facebook? Why did KMOX personality Charlie Brennan call out the Globe Democrat on his show for having three typos in a headline? (Actual headline read: scolar to speak at Second Presbyerian Churuch) Why did R&B singer Alexander Oneal say during a recent performance at the Ambassador in St. Louis “turn me up band” and there was no band, just some tracks? Why is Whitney Houston the only one holding out in signing up for the “Waiting to Exhale” sequel “Getting to Happy?” And why was KMOX radio personality Charlie Jaco’s midday show is about to be replaced with shock jock J.C Cochran?
