NEWS: Kanye Fires Back At Boo Birds And More In “The Roundup”

Kanye got an earful from the boo birds at the Bonnaroo festival when he arrived over two hours late for his performance. But ‘Ye is never one to bite his tongue, or hold back from furiously typing on his computer! So the Chi-Town rapper took to his blog and wrote a few capitalized-sized lettered paragraphs for folks. “I am sick of negative people who just sit around trying to plot on my down fall,” he wrote. “Why? I understand if people don’t like me because I like me or if people think tight clothes look gay or people say I run my mouth too much. But this Bonnaroo thing is the worst insult I’ve ever had in my life.” [Kanye's Blog]

Memphis heroes 8Ball & MJG have reportedly inked a deal with the South’s favorite son, T.I. The veteran rappers will likely partner with the company and sign with a distributor to release their next album. Ball and G were previously signed to Bad Boy South. [Billboard]

This year is turning out to be a pretty big one for Herbie Hancock. First he took home Album of the Year at the Grammy Awards and now Hancock has been honored as the Musician of the Year at the Jazz Awards. The “Rockit” star was rewarded for his album River: The Joni Letters.” [AP]

    Normally I wouldn’t but I have sympathy in this case for Ye he got fucked over and made to be the bad guy when Pearl Jam ended there set late (didn’t know they were still around) and the promoters fucked up the specs on his set and shit…this is the one time I’ll accept bitching from him

    Kanye u coo & all. but comparing Nas & Soulja Fag was just retarted. Soulja Boy doesn’t have any lyrical game what so ever 2 have a career. Don’t make any retarded comparisons or defend any wack, weak azz rappers again.
