Dipset Working With Dr. Dre?

Well, I guess my theory that Dipset will be part of a new launch of Roc-a-fella is completely off. It looks likes rumors of Dipset on being on Interscope might be a reality?
Jim Jones tweeted today that they just got out of the studio with Dr. Dre?

interesting that appherently as rich as Dre is, he only owns one Nautica shirt, and wore it to both Jay-z and Dipset record sessions?

Dipset shows in Columbus, and Jim Jones in paticular were always an interesting spectacle throughout the duration of the crews artist thug -in-residency here in the C-O because there was always an feeling in the air that admidst that there may be some sort of animosity in the room.

UPDATED: Exclusive…Black Keys New Hip Hop Project: Blakroc

UPDATE: Blakroc’s official website is now live.

Here in Ohio, the rumors of a Black Keys produced Hip Hop project intially started by a Jim Jones on Twitter awhile back are becoming a reality by Patrick Carney twittering ” Blakroc” a few hours ago. The current word swinging around Columbus graffiti and weirdo creep circles about the Blakroc project like chains and exhaust is this:

Blakroc is a hip hop album produced by the Black Keys that features Rza, Raekwon, Mos Def, Jim Jones, Pharoah Monch, Q-tip, Ludacris, ODB, Billy Danze of M.O.P., Noe and Nicole Wray.

The album has 11 songs and will be released 11 weeks from today on Black Friday (the Friday after Thanksgiving).

The album is being released on a label started by Dame Dash and The Black Keys management.

Given that Rae, and Mos Def both put out their best albums in a decade this past year, I have a pretty good feeling about this record and NYC golden era Hip Hop artists in general.

(And I live in a city where we throw parades for our lost local Hip Hop icons. So us Ohioans take our Hip Hop seriously)

Can you keep a secret?

Lil Wayne on the Cover of Mad Magazine

I was at Wallmart buying a small-ass computer so I can blog at all times. (i-phone doesn’t have a word processor or an ability to save pictures on a desktop.) I came across this: Lil Wayne on the cover of the November issue of  Mad Magazine.The actual content isn’t about Wayne, but a herb trying to use a cameo spot in a Wayne video to be a marginal star.

 In unrelated news, U-Mad.net reports that Jim Jones has done a remix of an MGMT song.

Dipset Back In the Movies


Jim Jones posted this synopsis from his interweb networking account on myspace.com about an upcoming film starring Juels Santana called the Project:

“Justin Stager and Dana Murphy, white, young, and naive, move to Brooklyn to make a documentary about inner city life. The film takes a media-immersion approach: Dana follows inner city youths, Justin films NYPD officers on patrol, and John Healy, a hired cinematographer, documents the filmmakers.

The focus of Dana’s story is Thomas Coventry, a 15-year-old black youth trying to navigate his way through his strained family and social life. Thomas is poised to move up from the hardships of ghetto life, but his volatile friend, Nate, who is hell bent on stealing the spotlight, is keeping Thomas down.

Surrounded by violence and drugs, nothing comes easy to Thomas in the dangerous environment he calls home. On the flipside, Justin documents the everyday lives of NYPD officers Dan Masterson and his partner Alex Mora. Masterson is a seemingly good cop who puts his life on the line everyday.

However, it slowly becomes evident that views towards certain races get in the way of his duties. After performing a heroic act, Masterson granted some time off. He uses this time to uncover a plot, the origins of which, unmask the motives behind Masterson’s racist behavior.

As the filming progresses, violence and emotions get into the way of Justin and Dana’s objectivity. As the filmmakers grow apart their stories merge together, forcing them to become active participants in the underground world they hoped to observe through the lens. What was once considered an ambitious idea soon spirals out of control, with irreversible results. Written by SenArt Films”

No Word when Killa Season 2 is coming out but at least the Dips are back in the in the theatres.

Keep reading for the trailers.
