QP spitting some fire in Cleveland over a new Killer Mike instrumental. This is grimey shit. Look for QP coming in the 4th quarter with his first album on Element 9/SMC/Fontana. Shout out to my friend DJ Xplosive for cluing me in on this cat and for showing me the video. Get familiar!
This kid is hot, what else can I say. Easily my favorite new producer out right now. He is on some next level shit that you can't even comprehend. Check out his his page at http://www.theapplejuicekid.com/. He is from Chapel Hill, NC and has won numerous beat battles over the past few years. He also had his first major placement on Pittsburgh Slim's album and is currently producing The Lo album (formerly Camp Lo) and is just bringing his banging beats and live drumming to the world. Check his shit out so you can say you heard of him before he blew up.
I'm sure you all heard this earlier but I just wanted to address the issue on here. thesmokinggun.com reported last week that Rick Ross is a former Florida corrections officer. I guess he didn't know Noreaga, the real Noreaga haha. Now he says this has all been photoshopped from a high school pic of his, but I'm not so sure. The article revealed a document that has Rick Ross' birth name on it, salary, etc. and there is the alleged photoshopped photo. If this is true this could cripple his career. Start doing some PR work DefJam. Decide for yourselves..... Smoking Gun Rick Ross Article Here is a real photoshopped pic that my friend made and I found funny. The Shawshank Rossdemption!

[caption id="attachment_12" align="alignleft" width="230" caption="The Simmons clan gets together for the debut of new clothing line"][/caption]Angela and Vanessa Simmons’ Pastry division of Run Athletics will launch a new line of products benefiting the Girls Scouts of the USA, the company announced today (Jul 16). The Pastry Thin Mint Collection, consisting of women’s and kids shoes and a backpack, hits specialty retail stores across the country today, including Finish Line, Underground Station and Lady Foot Locker. "Our relationship with the Girl Scouts is deeply meaningful to us," explained Vanessa Simmons. "To have the opportunity to further support their efforts of empowering young women with the creation of the Thin Mint Collection is very special." A portion of all proceeds from sales of the Thin Mint Collection will go directly to the Girl Scouts of the U.S.A., the premier leadership organization serving 3.6 million girls and adult members across the country. The Thin Mint Collection continues the relationship established between the Simmons sisters and the Girls Scouts Organization in 2007. Vanessa and Angela joined the organization as spokespersons for the “Make Girls Scouts Your Business” initiative, which encourages girls to participate in the various Entrepreneurship and Financial Literacy programs. Their efforts have included a series of speaking engagements sharing their experiences as young businesswomen, as well as supporting the girls in their various leadership initiatives. “We have had so much fun working with the girls,” added Angela. “I feel they do more for us than we could ever do for them! We are hoping our relationship with the Girl Scouts organization continues to grow and develop.” The entire Simmons clan, including adopted daughter Miley, makes it’s return to MTV tonight, kicking off the 5th season of the award winning reality series Run's House.
