In other Common related news….  Today, CNN released a few thoughts from MR. UMC in regards to the future of hip hop and the impact of Barack Obama:

“I think hip-hop artists will have no choice but to talk about different things and more positive things, and try to bring a brighter side to that because, even before Barack, I think people had been tired of hearing the same thing,”.

50 Cent Hits a Delay

50-centOriginally due Dec. 16, 50 Cent’s new album, “Before I Self Destruct,” has been pushed to an unspecified date in early 2009.

Interscope says the artist was “rushing” to meet the December date but “with the deadline to secure advertising and retail placement for the album imminent,” the rapper opted to wait until next year.

The album boasts production and guest turns from mentors Dr. Dre and Eminem; producer Scott Storch helmed first single “Get Up.” (source)

Britney Is Still At The ‘Circus’

brit-promo-circusHere’s a pic (source) of Britney from her new “Circus” album, I assume this will either be in the CD or digital sleeve or possibly in some circus-wear catalog for uniforms.

“I’ll have a pack of Marlboro Lights and some Tic-Tacs please – keep the change sugar-tits.”

At least the crazy is in her wardrobe and no longer in her eyes. Keep it up Brit.

Britney Goes To The ‘Circus’, Protect The Weave Girl!

britney-circus1So, I tried to make a play on words and yes, it was kind of lame…but, the new CD is called Circus and The Sun seems to have heard a few tracks. It sounds like little miss Cheetos gets a little dusty and dirty on some tracks.

Apparently, there’s a song called “If You Seek Amy” that seems innocuous enough, but it has an entirely different meaning.

It goes: “All the boys and all the girls want to if you seek Amy”. That clearly doesn’t make much sense.

What you hear, though, is the quite shocking statement: “All the boys and all the girls want to fuck me.”

It’s a great track. A stomping robo pop number with clattering kettle drums and Brit being quite frank about the opinion she holds of herself.

“Kill The Lights” (which we already posted here) focuses on the star’s relationship with the paparazzi, the lights referring to flash bulbs. It’s a brilliant disco banger with an elastic bass line and plenty of spooky keyboard work.

During “Kill The Lights” Brit addresses her camera-toting tormentors with the brilliant line: “Is that money in your pocket or are you just pleased to see me?”

Should be interesting if she can handle the pressure of promoting the album and the impending world tour. Oh yeah, keep reading if you want the full track listing for the album. Continue reading
