Foxy Brown won’t deliver in jail!
Brooklyn based rapper Foxy Brown is headed to jail after her recent sentencing trial. Brown faces up to a year in prison for parole violation charges stemming from her July assault case. AllHipHop.com interviewed Foxy in 20005, detailing the incident leading to her present case.
The female rap artist’s management camp is also saying Foxy is not pregnant, as she stated earlier in court and in the press. The question now is, did Foxy lie about her pregnancy to gain leniency from the judge, similar to Nicole Ritchie and her case? If that wasn’t enough, Brown will release an album Brooklyn's Don Diva in November, with a single on the way. Let's see if she can withstand the whirlwind that the story of her pregnancy denial started.
Jah Cure ready for festival
JahCure is finally free and ready to bring the world his message and music. His new album True Reflections has some of his latest hits as well as new cuts. The much-anticipated CureFest, a 3-day event held in celebration of Jah Cure, takes place in October and will mark the first major performance by him.
The singer was imprisoned in 1999 on gun charges and rape. The case against him was questionable with many irregularities and mistakes on the part of the police and prosecutors, casting the entire trial in mystery.
While many celebrate the release of the reggae singer, Roy Moyston of the Jamacia Gleaner asks the question, "Who speaks for the black woman" who was raped and looks at the future of the Rastafarian movement. Suzanne Ferguson, the rape victim, spoke publicly about her feelings about Jah Cure and the rape, stating that she has flashbacks when she hears the singer's music and wants him to admit his crime. Check out the clip of Jah Cure’s Press Conference and stay tuned for more information.

The new Wu-Tang Clan single “Watch Your Mouth” is making the rounds on the internet. It’s too early to judge, but so far the first single totally sounds like a Wu joint. Take a listen for yourself!
Speaking of Wu, Unkut has an interesting take on the Raekwon/Aftermath situation. Robbie has a point; I don't know why we ALL fell for that one, with the history of the artist that were signed on to work with Dre, then never heard of with Dre again! Take a look at his breakdown.

Plastic Dreams (1993)
One of my favorite house tracks ever, this classic is the perfect example of how dance music should sound, heavy dark and too funky to ignore. The video is a little weird, but what do you expect for 90's house!
