Social Writer's have been told by quite a reliable source that Bussa Buss is seeing one of Kanye West's ex-girlfriends, Brooke Jasmine.
The new single itself has great potential to cause a bit of a stir in the clubs especially as it has a feel good factor for all those swagger conscious individuals, who feel their every move is being watched. However; Like with most of Loso's singles, I always feel it never catapults like it should and still leaves a lot to be desired, with the likes of Weezy, Drake and Wale, all of whom have a new generation of Hip Hop followers, do you think there is still room for Fabo to remain?
Let us know what you think?

What do you think? The Game recently said that Jay-Z is putting 'trash' out, what do you think? Has Game got a point, or is HOV back?

Jay-Z recorded an interview with Tim Westwood for his show this week and took time to address some rumours around Chris Brown and The Games' fascination with him!
I'm glad Jay has decided not to reply to 'The Groupie' aka The Game, someone at his level shouldn't be getting involved with MC's who are trying their best to stay relevant. I take my NY fitted off to Mr. Carter for this interview.

At last we have a woman of colour as Miss England!!
Londoner Rachel Christie, the niece of shamed athlete Linford Christie, was crowned the first Miss England last night. Christie, 20, who is set to take part in the 2012 Olympics in the heptathlon, told organisers her life long ambition is to win gold at the 2012 Olympics.
Congratulations to Rachel, who's not just a pretty face!! Hopefully this will open the doors for more women of colour in such beauty pageants.
Thanks to Reebok, die hearted art fans can expect a little treat this Autumn. As a tribute to the famous 80's artist Jean-Michael Basquiat, trainer fanatics can put a little Avant-garde prep in their step as some of the artist's famous paintings will be featured on Reebok's new collection of trainers.
Rebelling against the old elitist 'look but don't touch' notion, that we are all too familiar with on those boring childhood trips to the museum, Reebok has made the usual expensive collectible art affordable for all to admire and wear. Though Reebok kicks can expect the Basquiat touch state side, keep posted to the Reebok website for information on the official UK release dates.

This is how Karen Civil is reporting it.
A source in Gucci’s camp let me know that Gucci Mane violated the terms of his probation, by failure to appear and dirty urine. The violation has sent him back to prison. The surce also mentioned, Warner Brothers/Asylum Records is trying to keep it quiet because Gucci going back to jail will hurt the promotion and marketing of Gucci Mane album this year. The fear is that with Gucci going in and TI possibly coming out, the buzz in Atlanta and the support of the label will shift from Gucci to TIP. Hopefully the Warner Brothers/Asylum Records will speak more on the situation.Although its reported that WarnerBrothers/Asylum records want to keep it quiet, news has reached Twitter with his protege SouljaBoy tweeting "Just woke up to some bullshit... my ni**a Gucci back in jail.. Free Gucci...".
If it's true and Gucci is actually going back to jail it's really going to affect Gucci Mane's marketing and buzz. After coming out of prison back in September 2008 Gucci has featured on many tracks by mainstream artists, Keri Hilson and Mario to name a few, he even managed to get under the skin of fellow south rapper, Young Jeezy who recorded a new diss track for Gucci and his protege OJ The Juiceman.
However the same way the news blew up, people were quick to suggest that it was all rumours. An associate of Gucci's Tweeted that it's all "false info".
As SW get more info, we will let you know!

The virus is spreading through the capital rapidly.
The Government says that a vaccine will be available from the end of August and children between the ages of three and 16 will be priority.
The RnB singer told fans he had never not finished a show before, but he felt that he could not continue with the show. He was said to be sweating quite a lot during the show and that he was struggling to finish some songs, even though some of his tracks were shortened. This means he may not be able to do the remaining dates of his tour.
Fans has been told that Ne-Yo will perform again at the MEN Arena.
Maybe he has a case of swine flu? It seems to be spreading rapidly at the moment.

Is Drake really the next best thing, or is he just an an average well marketed artist?

Gone are the days when we used to associate tat's with rock stars and bikers, the new age hip hop star is no stranger to getting inked up as rappers all over the world have embraced the culture.
Even Soulja Boy got in on the act, making the front cover of Urban Ink for his tats.
But producer/rapper Swizz Beatz has gone one further and instead of getting more tat's he's taking up the position of, wait tattooist.
Have a look as Swizzy works his magic with the needle on fellow RuffRyder EVE.
Swizzy Tweeted he is "Taking this art thing to a new level".
Lil Wayne recently played the role of tatooist inking up his Young Money artist Tyga, is playing the role of tatooist the next thing for rappers?

Flash (Duffus) wakes up to a phone call from Angel (Watson) announcing that he's being released from prison and wants the 500k he'd left with Flash for safekeeping. Short of the full amount and pushed for time, Flash is forced to to strike a deal with Evil (Duncan) who more than lives up to his name. 1 Day follows Flash's race against the clock as he's pursued by a rival gang, the police, his three irate baby mothers and his granny.
Looks interesting, could this topple the success of Noel Clarke's Kidulthood & Adulthood series?
There have been in a few in the likes of Gucci Mane and Young Jeezy, Soulja Boy and Bow Wow, which had the title of PR stunt all over it and the biggest feud with Kanye and 50 over whose album would sell the most, which in most cases wasn't really a beef but just a competitive rivalry from two major players in the game.
However Hov may be able to have the rap world taking once again as he has been the subject of a tirade of disses coming from Aftermath's The Game.
In the run up to his highly anticipated Blueprint 3 album Hov dropped a freestyle. Watch below and listen carefully.
At the 1:30 mark Hov says.....
"I aint talking bout gossip, I aint talking bout Game (The Game), I ain't talking bout Jimmy (Jim Jones), I ain't talking about Dame (Dame Dash)".
The freestyle sparked a response from Jim Jones who tweeted "Question if someone says in the song I'm not talking bout jimmy is tht not talking bout jimmy lol we r back in business people".
But most offended was The Game, who currently on his world tour had venues in France and Spain screaming "F**k Jay - Z" over Hov's 'Death Of Autotune' beat.
The Game even went one further and recorded a diss track entitled 'I'm So Wavey'.
The Black Wall St. CEO even claimed that Jigga told BET that if they invited Chris Brown to the BET awards then he and Beyonce will pull out of their performances.
Controversial! What do you think, will Jigga come out the closet and and respond or will he not reply as he does with everyone else?

For James this has actually become a reality. After a bet in December 2007, James said that he would live without cash for a year, well without money with the Queen's head on it, and paying for everything by card. Today, a year and a half later, he's still living without cash.
Some of you may say, "That's easy to not use any cash", but it's not as easy as you think....at first! It takes a lot of getting used to. But it's a great way for you to save money, and in this current economic climate that we're living in, saving is the way forward.
If you feel that you can take up the challenge of living without cash, check out the video below for some do's and dont's from James, about being cashless.

Whilst Rihanna was in Vegas with Jay-z & co exposing her Tatta's Breezy was with Teyana Taylor at Diddy's All White party. A few days ago she posted on her Twitter that she and Chris were like 'brother & sister' and that she was 'friends with both Chris and RiRi' and he is 'NOT' her man! I actually believe her despite all of the rumours that are flying around about them at the moment!
Enjoy the vid.
Around 17,500 family, friends, music heads, and fans filled Los Angeles' Staples Centre, where the memorial was televised to the world. As Michael's gold casket lay at the front of the stage, some of the best entertainers performed or said speeches about/for Michael such as Mariah Carey and Trey Lorenz, who sang the classic 'I'll Be There', a preganant Jennifer Hudson who also sang, a very truthful and uplifting speech made by family friend Rev. Al Sharpton, plus many more.
Here's some of my favourite highlights from the service, including a very emotional speech made my Michael's daughter, Paris Katherine.
Michael Jackson would have definitely loved his memorial service, they all done him proud.
R.I.P MJ, may you finally be at peace!

Have you ever spotted a celeb in a magazine or on the road and loved a pair of shoes that they had on, but had no idea which designer brand it was, or where to buy it? Or have you read in a newspaper about a fabulous hotel that a celebrity has stayed in, but you have no idea what the hotel is called?
Well now you no longer have to wonder......introducing www.thenod.com

This is a great website as it saves you time trying to find that specific pair of Louboutins that you saw Victoria Beckham wear last night to dinner, or those black sunglasses that P Diddy wore whilst lapping up the sun in St Tropez.
As a part of the Create Festival 2009, the good people that created I Luv Live, Urban Development, present a new project: Re:Definition, a musical night night full of talent, originality and creativity.

The multi-platinum selling rapper has been told by doctors to rest - no suprise there really. This comes just after fans found out that Drake, who was also meant to be on tour with Weezy and opening act Kid Cudi, wouldn't be taking part in the tour because of his torn Achilles heel.
The tour will be postponed apparently for later in the year, so ticket holders keep hold of your tickets!
It may not be good news that the concert has been postponed, but maybe now with the new dates that are being rescheduled, Drake can perform too!
I am VERY disappointed with this video.....
With all the hype about Drake being the next best thing, this video surely does him no justice at all! I understand that it's a spoof, but I still don't get the video. at all. The video just features pure breasts, which the guys will like looking at, but Drake's got a huge female fan base too, so this video just doesn't cut it at all!
Is this all that Ye is capable of doing? I think he may need to think about this talent of his that he calls being a video director, because this video is wack!
Fiddy has had it hard of late in his quest to reinvent himself and make his presence felt in 2009.
His last project, 'Curtis', saw him locked in a feud with Kanye west as to who would sell more records, in which Ye's album outsold 50's by 200,000 units on the first day.
Furthermore many argue that the epic 50 that produced 'Get Rich or Die Tryin' has since been out of touch with hip hop and is more respected as a businessman man as opposed to a musician.
Whatever it is, it looks like Fiddy, has a sure-fire hit with this one as Dr. Dre provides the beat.
What are your thoughts, can 50 turn attention away from the Drakes, Weezy's and Hov's of the game? Or should he just stick to business deals like Vitamin water?

This is a really good video which has some amazing special special effects and also has a cameo from 'Sister Sister' and 'The Game' star Tia Mowry.
