Whatâ€™s da deal, everyone?
What a weekend! Shout out to my special informant who attended V103â€™s own Ryan Cameronâ€™s birthday bash. It seems that my invitation keeps getting lost in the mail when Ryan has events. Still, the Gyant wonâ€™t be denied. All the Atlanta celebs were in attendance. Bobby Valentino, Michael Vic, Emmanuel Lewis (Webster), Frank Ski and others came to celebrate Ryanâ€™s â€¦ damn, I forgot how old He is. â€œYo, Ryan, how old are you?â€
From what I hear, the line to get into the spot, which was held at Club 112, was thick as hell. The bottles were poppin and everybody was toastin it up in celebration of one of Atlantaâ€™s own country boys. Hereâ€™s to you, Ryan! Keep doin your thing. And next year, Iâ€™l be looking for my personal invitation â€¦
This week, I got a new Poppin or Floppin video. My man Ludacris is still tryin to do his thing and save Release Therapy from falling into obscurity. In case you didnâ€™t know, Luda dropped his fifth studio album under the Island/Def Jam umbrella back in September, same day as Janet Jackson. However, to compete with the pop icon and take her claim for another #1 album, Def Jam dropped Ludaâ€™s album sales price to an unbelievable $6.99. Though that drastic sales price guaranteed Christopher the â€œNumber One Spot,â€ Release Therapy quickly fell out of the top 10 just two weeks later. Even as it seems people have moved on to the next rapper, Luda refuses to give up. Heâ€™s enlisted the soulful sound of MJB to bring â€œRun Away Loveâ€ to the masses.
I love the message of the song, though I find it difficult to absorb the message completely because of all the socially irresponsible music Luda puts out. Iâ€™M NOT HATING, Iâ€™M JUST KEEPIN IT REAL.
Show your love, or hate, for â€œRunaway Love.â€
In related news ..
Luda shot a behind the scenes featurette with SOHH.com. Check it out here.
One more thing, that Bow Wow rumor is officially deaded. He will not be playing a bisexual character in an upcoming movie. SOHH.com got it straight from his PR people. It's not happenin.
