Well kind of. The news this weekend is that Fabolous and/or his crew were possibly involved with the theft of a unique Lamborghini. The theft was alleged happened in January of this year at the InterContinental Buckhead in Atlanta Georgia. At first there was little evidence to muster up any suspects, but now surveillance tape video has surfaced showing Loso leaving the hotel with his crew and members of the crew receiving keys to the luxury car.

I found this one over at nahright.com. This is video is gold if you are a massive Murs fan like myself. In this video Murs talks about his fourth album with one of hip hop’s best producers, 9th Wonder. The LA MC also chats about a third Felt album.
Lil Wayne and Baby Laughing it Up
Yes, more Lil Wayne news to share. It seems like this guy is everywhere. Totally unavoidable. Anyway, over the weekend Lil Wayne released his No Ceilings mixtape to the world. Although the album leaked a couple days early, Wayne insisted it wasn’t finished and the real version would be released on it’s intended date of Halloween.
I downloaded the leaked version and have also downloaded the real version. It seems to me that Wayne was buffing because the mixtapes are extremely similar. Just a few different tracks.
Lil Wayne and Kanye West at the Grammys
This past week and weekend two of hip hop’s biggest acts faced the law. Both Lil Wayne and Kanye West faced the long arm of law steaming altercations in the past couple of years.
Lil Wayne pleaded guilty to gun possession chargers in a Manhattan on Thursday October 22nd. As part of this peal deal Wayne will be headed to prison for one year, but could only be locked up for about eight to ten months assuming he behaves well.
Kanye West was also in court, but not on gun chargers. In 2008 Kanye put the beat down on a paparazzi and his camera while attempting to leave the airport.

Kanye! Watch Out For Stomach Demons!
There is no getting around it, this bit of cinema is strange. Awhile back Spike Jonze director of Where the Wild Things Are, announced he would direct a short film starring Kanye West. The film was to be coupled with West’s “See You In My Nightmares” track off of his 808s and Heartbreak album. The film was supposed to be released via iTunes on September 8th of this year, but never did.
Well today the video leaked online and it can be found here:
