FIRST LADY BUMPS GIULIANI FROM
Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani
arrived at his favorite seats in
Yankee Stadium for Game 1 of the
World Series last week, only to

MLK’S DAUGHTER IS SCLC’S FIRST
Rev. Bernice King, the youngest
child of the Rev. Martin Luther
King Jr. and Coretta Scott King, on
Friday became the first woman to
head the Southern Christian
Leadership Conference civil rights
organization co-founded by her
Rev. Al Sharpton better put the big guy on alert — his wife and kid could use some help from a higher power.
The reverend’s ex-wife and oldest daughter were cuffed by cops Halloween night in Harlem after speeding past a police car and running a red light, the New York Daily News reported Saturday.
Kathy Jordan, 53, and daughter Dominique, 23, sped through a light on Eighth Ave. and were immediately pulled over by cops, who began writing the women tickets for the violation — but the Rev’s ladies weren’t having any of it.
Jordan and her daughter got increasingly aggressive with the officers, who slapped the two with charges disorderly conduct and obstruction of governmental administration, a source told the News.
Former Def Jam artist DMX recently spoke on his issues with the record industry and why most artists are forced to give up a large portion of their publishing rights and profits.
While not mentioning any label in particular, X vented about the music industry’s cut-throat practices
“The highest paid artist gets like 26 cents off a dollar,” X revealed in an interview. “And they sell your sh*t for $20. I can’t use my own music without getting your permission? I wrote it, paid a n*gga for the beat, I paid your for loaning me the money, I paid you back your money, now we splitting because you owed me the money but you own my sh*t. I don’t owe you a motherf*cking thing, why is you holding on to my sh*t? And that’s standard, get the f*ck outta here man. S*ck my f*cking d*ck.” (Sounds Like Fire)
New 50 Cent Gomez Bros Interview. Talks About Jay-Z & Beanie Sigel,New BISD Release Date [Pt. 1 & 2]
Kim Kardashian is fire. Reggie’s girl and the flyest K-Doll of the 3. Men love her, women hate her for no reason and she keeps on chucking and does her own thing. But what is she like in the bed? Kim reveals all in this interview, when she lost her virginity, feet, butt, giving or receiving and more.
Would you ever videotape yourself having sex again?
KARDASHIAN: Never, never, never again—obviously, because of what happened. I had to explain it to my little sisters, who’d be watching TV, and they’d see on E! or Extra, or something, my picture, and they’d be like, “Kimmy’s on TV!” And right next to it would be “Sex Tape.” And they’re like, “What’s that?” Just to have to sit down and explain it to them. My step-dad wouldn’t talk to me for three weeks. The stress that I know it put on my mom and my step-dad—just the whole family. If my dad were here to witness all of that, I don’t even know what I’d do. It’s just not worth it, basically.
How old were you when you lost your virginity and what were the circumstances?
KARDASHIAN: I was young. I had a boyfriend for four years…my first boyfriend. I was with him when I was 14; I’d say around late 14 or early 15, I don’t remember. We were sooo in love; I thought we were going to get married. I told my mom—I brought her in my bathroom and I’m like, Mom, I think I’m gonna have sex. I think I should go to the doctor and get put on birth control. And my mom was like, Okay. What else was she gonna say?
You get a lot of attention for your backside. What’s your favorite part of your body?
KARDASHIAN: My toes; I like my feet. But I’d say my butt. I like [the attention]; I think it’s funny. It bothered me when people would come up with rumors, like, “Oh, my god, she has butt implants, it can’t be real.” Who gets butt implants? Come on. Do you know anybody who has butt implants?
What do you wear to bed?
KARDASHIAN: I love lingerie. I love the little booty shorts—boy shorts. I sleep in lingerie every single night, whether I’m by myself or not. I like to wake up feeling good. You’d think a guy was coming over. Sometimes if I’m by myself I’ll wear cottony ones instead of lace ones and my girlfriends or sisters will come over, and they’ll be like, “Who is coming over? You’re so weird. There’s no guy around; what’re you doing?” But it’s totally for me.
Who do you think has the best ass in Hollywood?
KARDASHIAN: Jennifer Lopez; I love her. Jessica Biel has a cute butt, too.
Where’s the most unusual place you’ve had sex?
KARDASHIAN: An airplane. On a private plane though. I don’t think I’d do it on a commercial flight.
Are you for or against one-night stands?
KARDASHIAN: I think [sex is] really intimate and really personal. All my friends in college would have these one-night stands and meet these random people. I don’t like to meet people in random places; it’s really weird. I’ve been all over Europe, like last summer, and all over the world, and all my friends would be meeting people. And they’re like, “What’s wrong with you?” I don’t have random hookups. Everyone I’ve been with has become my boyfriend. Sometimes I wish, like, Live a little, have fun. I’m really into sex—with my boyfriend. I like to have a major connection, where it’s not just having sex.
What music do you like to listen to while making love?
KARDASHIAN: Oh, my god. Do you wanna die? I think I lost my virginity to an R. Kelly CD. I think we put the music up really loud.
Do you prefer giving or receiving oral sex?
KARDASHIAN: Giving. I just like to please my boyfriend. It’s cool when you know someone really well and you know what to do to make them feel good. I like to make him feel good.
If a guy you’re dating asks how many men you’ve slept with, how do you answer?
KARDASHIAN: I’d be completely honest. You want someone to know all about you; I’m really open. For me it’s probably different, because people probably assume that I’ve been with more than I have. I don’t feel like I should hide anyone that I’ve been with—I have nothing to hide; I have no regrets. So why should it be such a secret?
Myspace, Facebook, Twitter, Bootycallonline, etc have become a virtual club. A meeting place without leaving home complete with pictures and biographies (real or not). Many indulge in IM sex, phone sex, Skype sex, cam sex and all that. But, there are many who take it to the next level and carry the lust straight to a personal meet and bus down. There are even those who drive, fly, or take bus trips to get to that unknown friend they only know from online contact. Have you ever meet someone online and slept with them? What is your screening process like?
That’s the million-dollar question, ain’t it? I mean, one minute her breasts look more fit to be covered with butter and syrup than a bra, and the next, they look like she wrapped her lips around a 6.5 hp Ventry balloon inflation fan. What gives? Anyone care to explain?
How could one of Hollywood’s highest paid actors find himself owing $6.3 million in back taxes and deep in money troubles? The answer is easy if you believe Nicolas Cage.
In a lawsuit filed Oct. 16 in Los Angeles, the National Treasure star, 45, claims that his longtime business manager, Samuel J. Levin, duped “lined his [own] pockets with several million dollars in business management fees while sending Cage down a path toward financial ruin.”
That journey began in 2001 when Cage – whose next movie is the crime drama Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans – hired Levin to oversee and manage his business interests, investments and finances. Levin did not return calls seeking comment. A rep for Cage had no comment.
On The Market
Though Cage claims it was only recently that he learned the gravity of his financial condition, the actor started selling off some of his prized possessions months ago. In April, Cage bid farewell to his Bavarian castle, selling it to his German advisor, lawyer Konrad Wilfurth.
Now he has placed other homes on the market in California, Las Vegas and New Orleans, where two of his residences – each worth at about $3.5 million – are up for auction Nov. 12, according to the that city’s Times-Picayune. Regions Bank foreclosed on Hancock Park Real Estate Co., the owner of Cage’s properties, for $5.5 million in unpaid mortgage debts, the newspaper reported.
Cage’s home liquidation comes as earlier this month the U.S. government placed a tax lien on his vast real-estate holdings because of $6 million in unpaid taxes dating from 2007, according to court papers. In addition, the Internal Revenue Service has another lien for more than $350,000 in unpaid taxes dating from 2002 to 2004.
East West Bank also filed a breach-of-contract complaint in Los Angeles Superior Court that claims Cage had failed to repay a $2 million loan that was extended this past August.
In the lawsuit filed against his business manager, Cage says he “relied on Levin to handle his financial affairs to ensure that he and his family would have a financially secure future built on the foundation of the substantial monies Cage earned through years of hard work.”
But “he is now forced to sell major assets and investments at a significant loss and is faced with huge tax liabilities because of Levin’s incompetence, misrepresentations and recklessness.” (Interestingly, Cage sold off his rare comic-book collection in 2002 for more than $1.6 million, a year after hiring Levin.)
Now as the actor gets ready to hit the big screen again this fall, he faces “catastrophic losses” in upwards of $20 million. The next court hearing in the lawsuit is scheduled for February 2010.
Thursday, October 29, 2009 was just like every other day of my life. Number 4. Call. Speed Dial. Girlfriend. It took no more than 5 seconds to let her know that I had arrived at our office and that I was waiting for her downstairs. It was quiet. Real quiet. This tree-lined block in Brooklyn at 10am on a Wednesday morning never made a lot of noise. I saw all four of them approach me. 2 kept walking. 2 stopped. They were young. Real young. 14. 15. Maybe. Whispers ensued. My blackberry was checked. My girlfriend came out and we were ready to go. “Hey mista! You know what time it is?” Yeah. 10 of 10. I guess the two kids didn’t have a watch or cell phone. I kept it moving. “Yo, why you starin’ at my man like that?” one kid said. Confusion, but don’t fool me for a rookie in the game. We kept it moving. “Yo, mothafucka! Why you lookin’ at me like that?” he repeated. I ain’t lookin’ at you. “You sure?” Positive.
We turned the corner and they followed. Two young teenagers. Not in school. Bored. And it was just about to get more intense. “Yo! Why you walkin’ away you from me you piece of sh*t. I wanna fight you. I’m gonna fight you!” Options. What options do I have ran through my head as quickly as the time I was in the middle of a gun-fight in Port Au Prince and as quickly as the time when I was in the middle of a police riot in Swaziland with an RPG flew three feet from my head. Make one wrong move, and you can all start preparing what you would say to my mother at my funeral. “Yo! I’m gonna f*ck you up! I’m gonna fight you!”
Yeah, I know you want to fight me, but if I disrespected you, then I apologize. No harm intended. Face to face. Girlfriend. 20 feet away watching. My hand extended. Olive branch proposed. “Don’t touch me!” The talker kept talking, the quiet one seemed embarrassed. The quiet one took my hand and nodded his head. “YO! I’M GONNA FIGHT YOU!” The talker kept talking. No, you’re not gonna fight me, that is the last thing you want to do right now. We kept it moving. They kept following. “Yo! Let’s fight! Right now! Let’s fight!” Face to face. His hands clenched. His hands shaking. His lips quivering. Nervous. Real young. Really nervous.
I saw the punch coming before he even thought about throwing it. The shooter is always more nervous than the one shot. He swung and barely missed. He stepped back. I stepped forward. “Give me 10 dollas!” Get the f*ck out of here with that 10 dollars. The quiet one kept quiet. The talker now realized his options had come to an end. The anger had been released. The punch didn’t connect, but the anger got out. You both hungry? The quiet one shook his head yes quietly. The talker not trying to show defeat, agreed with a mean mug on his face. But hungry too. Let me take you both to breakfast and we can talk about what I do and how I do it. Both real hungry when they took a big bite out of the egg and cheeses with bacon that the deli served them with my ten dollars.
We shook hands. The quiet one finally spoke. “C’mon son. This guy is a good guy. Apologize.” The talker apologized. You can’t do that. You can’t just run up on people on the street and try to knock em’ out. You have more intelligence than that. More promise. More potential. I go to work everyday for you. I’m the last one you want to hurt. More apologies. More bites into the sandwich. Another one? Of course. Whatever you want. A pack of gum. And now even a smile and laugh. Three minutes ago, you tried to knock me out…now you sayin’ that “I’m your man.” Funny how money changes situations…
Poverty and Anger. Mix like rum and coke, but don’t make you feel as good. These two young men were hungry and angry. And those are two main ingredients for hopelessness. The most dangerous kid in America is a kid who has no hope. Get involved.

[0:55-1:10] I’m pushing the record up, it’ll be out on the 16th. I’m expecting it to do good because of the response I’ve heard on the web.
[12:10] I feel good that it was leaked in its entirety, in sequence. So people can hear my vision.
[3:35-4:00] [What's your take on the Beanie Sigel/Jay-Z?] That whole shit is a mess. I understand where his frustration comes from, because there was a point where— He would’ve had a serious check…
[6:15-7:10] A lot of the times when I say Jay is a cool punk, don’t get it fucked up, he’s a smart guy. You can’t take away from him what he’s done in the actual business and in the game. But since he lost to Nas, he hasn’t competed… Everytime somebody came— Beans went out in the front with Jadakiss. He had the Cam’ron issues. Then when Cam’ron came back and it was issues again, the Tru-Life deal was signed. And when Tru-Life got into an altercation with him, that one stopped. That’s what stopped the Cam beef.
[8:05-9:00] [Do you feel like that Beanie Sigel has some legitimate complaints about Jay-Z?] I think he did have legitimate complaints because of my choices. Like— When they tell me you was giving the nigga $1250? [Silence.] A group? [Silence.] A motherfucker can’t even afford no pussy with $1250. [Laughs.] These niggas is staying in nice hotels. If a bitch order room service twice, you’re done. [Laughs.] You know what it is, it’s traditional business. My business model comes from the curb so I’ma take care of my niggas a little different, cuz they my people.
Young Jeezy has responded to former Boyz N Da Hood group member Jody Breeze, who recently released a diss track titled “Uptown” calling the CTE boss out.
Jody Breeze is a member of the gold-selling group Boyz N Da Hood, which hit big with their single “Dem Boyz.”
The group originally featured Young Jeezy, Jody Breeze, Big Gee and Duke, but Jeezy left the group in 2005 to go solo and was later replaced by Atlanta rapper Gorilla Zoe.
Last month, Jody Breeze released a song and video for “Uptown,” which takes a number of shots at Young Jeezy.
On the track, Jody Breeze calls Young Jeezy a fraud and questions the rapper’s alleged street ties.
“It could never be no situation, because little homie already know what it is with me,” Young Jeezy stated today during a RapStarPromotion conference call for DJ’s today (October 29). “At the end of the day, I just take it for what it is. Ni***s f**ked up, ni***s talking reckless. If the ni**a wanna get signed and need some money, we’ll do that. But Jody knows what it is with me, I aint to be played with like that. I aint never disrespected the lil homie, I aint never brought his name out of my mouth of none of that bulls**t.”
Simmering tension between the two almost flared last May in Atlanta, when a group of men affiliated with Young Jeezy approached Jody Breeze during a record release party for R&B singer Ciara.
The confrontation appears to have been the reason for Jody Breeze releasing “Uptown,” which makes a number of disparaging comments about Young Jeezy.
“I see Jeezy across the club, I throw my hands up, I see this n***a looking at me,” Jody Breeze stated in an interview. “He tried to act like he aint lookin at a n***a, like you aint just send these n***as over here. That’s some real hoe s**t.”
Last week footage of CTE affiliate 2Eleven hit the Internet featuring the rapper dissing Jody Breeze in response to the “Uptown”
Today (October 29), Young Jeezy confirmed the incident at Ciara’s album release party took place, but denied that it would have turned into a confrontation.
“I’m a real n***a,” Young Jeezy said of the confrontation in Atlanta. “I just tried to holla at the n***a. I sent the homies to tell the n***a to come over here and f**k with me drink a little bit, but I guess he took it the wrong way.”
Young Jeezy is currently preparing to release his new album Thug Motivation 103, while Jody Breeze is prepping a new mixtape with DJ Scream.
