I am sooooo happy right now!!!
I just caught wind that D'Angelo released a new buzz track, "I Found My Smile Again," via Itunes today <30>
D'Angelo's manager, Lindsay Guion, recently confirmed with billboard.com that D'Angelo is currently working on his newest album. He's even collaborating with Raphael Saadiq, ?uestlove, and Roy Hargrove.
D'Angelo's last album, "Voodoo," sold 1.7 million copies in the United States alone. In addition, his last single that I can remember, "Untitled (How Does It Feel)," hit No. 2 on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop chart and No. 25 on the Hot 100.
Today, a Q-Tip song that features D'Angelo, "I Believe," which will appear on Q-Tip's upcoming album, The Renaissance, leaked onto the net.
Check out "I Found My Smile Again" and "I Believe" below:

I'm not exactly the biggest fan of Ne-Yo's newest album... but he just released a video that I'm really feelin right now. It's called "She Got it (Miss Independent, Part 2)" and it features Jamie Foxx and Fabolous...
By the way, I'm really fiending for a new Jamie album. His first one is a classic.
Plus, Ne-Yo has this new song (that should have been put on the album), and I am in LOOOOOOOVE with it.
Both of these songs fall into that categorgy of mid-tempo music that makes you bob your head... You could play this in the club or just by yourself when you wanna chill out (like I'm doin all the time now since I lost my job, lol).

These models are really going to TIP at this years' CAU Homecoming fashion show, Tuesday September 30th. Put together by Jeremy Haynes & Raphael cox and hosted by BET's Dorian Standberry (college hill), this show will definitely give you an adrenaline rush. Pictured are a few models to look out for on the runway. Also catch LateBoots.com's very own Marquis hosting the "Style awards" at the fashion shows' red carpet. RED carpet starts at 6:30pm. !! Don't be LATE or caught slippin'.
Don't turn your back on this show. It's not one to miss...
Now. I know makeup is definitely not my field, but as a male I've always felt that women (especially female actresses) should always have their makeup in tact. Primarily at special events. I loved Golden Brooks on "Girlfriends". I wouldn't say she was my particular favorite but she had appeal and was very charismatic.
Here we have our very own Golden showing up at the Emmy's. Now please America, tell me why she doesn't noticer that she has a yellow mustard complexion on her face when clearly she's a brown skinned woman, LOL. Why Golden? Grab a rab and scrub that cake off of your face? It looks like she got smacked with a bowl of banana pudding. I hate when beautiful women end up trying too hard and looking like plastered water color paintings. Maybe next time Golden... maybe next time.
How is it going with girlfriend Kim Kardashian?
“Great,” he said. “Great girl. Great friend.”
Is marriage to her in the plans?
“Yes,” he replied.
“Don’t know. But it’s coming.” [source]
80s rap icon Sandy “Pepa” Denton recently revealed that she, Salt and Spinderealla were working on bringing their life story to the big screen. As many of you know, Salt n’ Pepa were the first female rappers to garner mainstream success with such hits as Shoop and Whatta Man. However, after finally striking it big in the early 2000s, the group disbanded, and only recently united via their VH1 reality series The Salt n’ Pepa Show.
“It’s a story that needs to be told,” Pepa told WENN. “It’s that girl-next-door story- people would identify with it. It would make a great movie - very juicy.” Pepa revealed she would like Meagan Good to portray her in the film. “Meagan Good could play me in my younger years. She reminds me of myself,” said Pepa. Earlier this year, Pepa released her memoir titled Let’s Talk About Pep. The book chronicles Pepa’s rap career and revealed the abuse she suffered in her childhood and failed marriages. She also speaks on her “breakup” with Salt and their eventual “reunion”.

Jo-Jo - "Can't Believe It"
On Your Way TO the club:
Nothin is better than some exclusive shit; check out:
Britney Spears - "Womanizer"
Nelly - "Lie" - Definitely something that the fellas can feel (I know I can lol)
T-Pain ft. Luda - "Chopped 'N' Screwed" - WILLYTEE'S FAVORITE

And I don't know quite where this fits... but it's exclusive so check it out anyways
Trey Songz - "Bust My Windows"
If you caught the first round of presidential debates last night, you were definitely in for a treat! Both candidates did an excellent job! Here is a rundown of how they handled themselves (from the perspective of WillyTee):
Composure: McCain at times appeared like an old professor condescendingly educating a young student. He often chuckled at Obama when he made a point with which McCain did not agree.
Elloquence: Obama did stutter a lot, but it didn't make him look less than genuine: people recognize that Obama is not the best debater. I also noticed that Obama called McCain by his first name several times, yet McCain never called his opponent by his first name.
GREAT-Grandaddy Moments: When the subject of foreign policy came up, McCain did EXACTLY was he was NOT supposed to do... he mispronounced the names of several Middle Eastern leaders. McCain f***ed up the name of the Iranian president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and the name of Pakistan’s newly inaugurated president, calling him “Qadari.” His name is actually Asif Ali Zardari.
Now I can't pronounce those names either... but you don't see my ass runnin for president!!! LOL
Foreign policy: The planned topic of this debate was foreign policy. Needless to say, McCain came into the debate as the front runner on this issue. All Obama had to do was keep up with McCain. Surprisingly, Obama did just that! At one point McCain shared a story of New Hampshire woman who presented him with a bracelet of her 22-year-old son who was killed in combat. She asked him to keep alive the mission so his death was not in vain. Obama came right back and said "I've got a bracelet too!" He told the story of a Wisconsin woman who presented him with a token from her son who was killed in the war. She asked Mr. Obama to end the war so other mothers do not share her anguish.
Economy: Neither of the candidates expressed any serious changes that would be made to their agendas in lieu of last week's economic crises. Obama however has the advantage that McCain supported most of the poor decisions made by Busch's administration.
Gas Prices/Shortage in Atlanta:
Anyways... I think both of the candidates did a decent job. However, there were no moments that blew me out of the water. Obama did better than expected, but he still is by no means the undisputed champ.
Sidebar... Bump trying to keep Russia from goin to war with their neighbor Georgia!!! Worry about your neighbors in Atlanta, GEORGIA in the USA that ain't got no damn gas!!!

Shout out to Mazi for sending in the video!
It seemed like the "Solange" brand fizzled down, along with her album sales, after she got all banjee with that FOX news reporter. We haven't heard much from her until now. She recently dropped by Hot 97 in New York and spoke with Angie Martinez where she addressed the "news anchor" situation & Yung Berg. Take a look...
Rihanna Tipped out in London this week. She was seen leaving BBC Radio One yesterday sportin’ a dope fall look with a 3-finger ring that had the inscription of the word Bad on it. And shes looking just that! It's time to bring those coats and scarfs out ya'll! The CHILL is right around the corner.
Now here's something you don't hear often...A "Push-up" date has been set for Kanye's highly anticipated album which was originally due out in Dec. Here’s the word from Kanye himself on his new album 808s & Heartbreak:
“I CHANGED MY ALBUM TO NOVEMBER SOMETHING CAUSE I FINISHED THE ALBUM AND I FELT LIKE IT… I WANT YALL TO HEAR IT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.”
Thanks for the early stocking stuffer Ye! Lets go get em

Press Play: Willie The Kid ft. Trey Songz, Gucci Mane, LA The Darkman, Yung Joc & Bun B - Love For Money
New York Yankees played their last regular season game against the Baltimore Orioles at Yankee Stadium on September 21, 2008 in the Bronx borough of New York City. The Yankees are planning on moving into the new Yankee Stadium across the street to start the 09 season. Yankee stadium is 85 years old.
Now what you know about The World Class Wreckin' Cru!?!?! In 1987, the group hit the national charts with his tune- "Turn Off the Lights" featuring vocals by Michel'le. NOW WHAT YOU KNOW ABOUT HER!!! All my ol' heads know about her. This was the song for me growing up tho! This is when I knew I was in love with music, riding in the backseat of my mom's car while she bumped this timeless tune. I loved it then and I love it now! A little unknown fact is that this is the group Dr. Dre started in (yes, thats Dre in the all white, lol). However, Dr. Dre later left the group to join Eazy-E and Ice Cube in N.W.A. by the time this song hit the charts. Now thats the Gotcha' Gotcha'!
A new mixtape single from Trey has surfed on the net titled
“Misunderstood”. In the song, Trey opens up about his "motionless"
career, the frustration with his label, and how he's witnessed many
artists who have opened up shows for him ,such as Chris Brown
and Ne-Yo, blow up right before his eyes. Trey songs is my favorite singer, hands down. I as well never understood...and will never understand how an artist like Chris Brown, who I respect by the way, could blow up over a voice like Trey's. The song samples "Misunderstood" off Lil' Wayne's The Cater III disc. Check out the joint and tell me what you think!

Perez Hilton has an exclusive look at the latest issue of PEOPLE magazine which features the former 'American Idol' runner-up and his Ellen-inspired admission 'Yes, I'm Gay.'
For years, the singer has dodged questions about his sexuality, but has now come out for the sake of his newborn son.
Aiken isn't the first celebrity to come out today. After months of speculation, actress Lindsay Lohan finally divulged that she is dating DJ Samantha Ronson.
Aiken had also said constant questioning of his sexuality in the tabloids had affected him deeply. " "Even though stuff about me that I read in the magazines isn't true, it still makes me lose sleep," he said. "I hurt, not just for my mother who has to watch it happen and who hurts for me. At least when I was in middle school … I understand why they picked on me."
Aiken had also refused to come out of the closet to PEOPLE magazine in an interview done the same week as his sit-down with Sawyer.
"What do you say? It's like when I was 8. I remember something would get broken in the house, and Mom and Dad would call me in and say, 'Did you do this?' Well, it didn't matter what I said. The only thing they would believe was yes. People are going to believe what they want." Clay Aiken Speaks To PEOPLE on Rumors

Sure in the hell looks like it! Diddy's mom showed up at the 60th Primetime Emmy Awards last night with her son on her arm, looking 20 years younger! In the picture (L) above her faces looks tighter, her eyes seem more squenched then usual...even her lips look done. I mean it could be botox, or that new wig she's sporting (thank GOD she got rid of that blonde thing)! Either way she is looking good. This is def. an upgrade for Mama combs! Her look is classy and radiant! What do you guys think?
Picking up where Shirley Brown's "Woman to Woman" left off, Jennifer hudson and Fantasia, in a good attempt, revamp the 1974 hit -simply titled "I'm his only woman". This time around you actually hear the 2-woman conversation as the power of the voices grow higher & higher. This track is off J.hud's self-titled debut album,in stores September 30. The track was penned by Missy Elliott with help from newcomer, Jazimine sullivan. This was supposed to be the song that J.Hud recorded with Jazmine Sullivan, I guess she got replaced. I wonder if her version will ever leak...But anyway you tell me, should we CRANK IT or YANK IT?!?!
"Bust Your Windows" (Proceeded by two really long introductions, one of which is from Missy)
& "Lions, Tigers, & Bears"
Back to the review… I really like this album because it gives you classic Nelly. Surprisingly, he actually raps more than he “sing-raps”, but unlike most rappers that try to sing, he actually sounds good doing it! In addition, classic Nelly albums always give you a variety of topics. He has the love songs, the sex songs, the hustle songs, the self-esteem building songs, and of course the club bangers! Being the well-rounded individual that I am, I really appreciate an album that I can get more than one vibe from. Because this review is going to be unbiased, I should also note that I think the album has a couple of unnecessary collabos. His label probably thought that by putting more relevant artists on the project, Nelly would appear to be more relevant than he actually is (taking into account his considerable absence from the industry). I however am ESTATIC to report that unlike every other album released by a Black artist in 2008, Lil Wayne is NOT featured on any track or any remix to a track or any bonus track or anything!!! I KIDDUNOT!!!!!! lol
In conclusion, Nelly’s Brass Knuckles is definitely something that you won’t feel like you wasted your money on! Give it a chance and I guarantee that you won’t be disappointed!

Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson got engaged this weekend to her boyfriend, David Otunga.
The 'Dreamgirls' star accepted the proposal of Otunga, known as "Punk" while a contestant on Vh1's 'I Love New York 2,' who presented her with a Neil Lane diamond ring on her 27th birthday on Sept. 12.
"I can confirm that Jennifer got engaged to her boyfriend David on Friday night in
Both Hudson and Otunga are from
Prior to her relationship with the reality TV star, the 'American Idol' finalist had been in a long-term relationship with her childhood sweetheart, custodian James Payton.
She also stars in 'The Secret Life of Bees' opposite Queen Latifah, Dakota Fanning, Alicia Keys and Sophie Okonedo. That movie opens on Oct. 17.
Mo’Nique has revealed in the October 2008 issue of Essence Magazine,that she was sexually abused by her own brother. She said:
“I was molested by my older brother.” “And even when I confronted him and told my parents, he said I was lying, and nothing was really done.”Mo’Nique added that her brother molested her four times over the course of four years. He often used candy to lure her into the bathroom, where much of the abuse took place, beginning when Mo’Nique was just seven.
Her parents,never believed her.She explained:
“because me and my brother were both their children, and I just don’t know the kind of position they felt they were in.”“My father was very upset, but it never got mentioned again. I’ll never forget my mother saying, ‘If it’s true, it will surface again,’ and I remember thinking, ‘Why would I lie? Why is there even an if in this?’ I was angry with them for so long, because I felt as if they should have seen what was happening.”“My brother was a monster to me.”
Her brother went on to serve 15 years in prison for sexually abusing another girl and has never apologized for Mo’Nique’s sexual abuse.“He still acts like he doesn’t know what I’m talking about. So screw hurting your feelings. You need to get your feelings hurt, and you need to get some help.”

"Mrs. Officer, Mrs. Officer tell your lieutenant get them cuffs off of ya"- Officer Knowles was spotted in Harlem, New York for the filming of much anticipated first single “If I Were A Boy” (directed by Jake Nava) -off her 3rd, yet-to-be-titled, solo disc scheduled for a November 18th release. In this scene, you can catch Beyonce donning a police uniform and OWNING her role as a police officer. According to sources on the set:
Beyoncé cops had some attitude in Harlem yesterday morning as she films a portion of her new video, "If I Were a Boy." But even the uniform can't conceal that a boy she's not. Toting a Taser and handcuffs, the curvy R&B star made the ar resting appearance on West 119 Street near Lenox Avenue. Accompanied by her on-screen police partner, the sexy singer descended the steps of a brown stone and climbed into a patrol car.
The certified diva who claims she is over being a pop star, filmed two videos this week; one for “If I Were A Boy”, which was produced by Toby Gad as well as her second single “Single Ladies”, which has production by The-Dream and Christopher “Tricky” Stewart. Both songs are expected to impact radio on October 7th. Check out pix from the shoot & short video clip.

Queen Latifah considered naming her new hip-hop album The L Word “just to mess with people’s heads.” The New Jersey rapper/actress has endured much speculation about her sexuality because she doesn’t discuss her personal life and played a lesbian in the 1996 film Set It Off. “L was gonna stand for love though or La,” she laughs. “Since people want to play games, I like to jab back sometimes just for fun, but I’m like, ‘Nah, that’s too much energy wasted.’ ”
Latifah calls the new album (due in December) “banging” and plans to hit the road next year. She’s been working with LL Cool J and Dr. Dre. “They pretty much did the whole album,” Latifah said during a small roundtable interview to promote her new film The Secret Life of Bees, which also stars Alicia Keys, Jennifer Hudson, Dakota Fanning and Sophie Okonedo. “My boy Kenny Flav did one track and I think might do two more. Missy [Elliott] and Swizz Beatz are the only two people I have left. But they’re mixing it right now.”
Latifah, whose last album, 2007’s Trav’lin Light, was a collection of jazz and R&B standards, says she “just about” wrote all the rhymes for it. “Dre helped me write some stuff. He wrote some stuff with me and Ludicris wrote a record for me.” Lyrically it covers a range of topics, she says. “A lot of love on there. People, dealing with people, how people do all kinds of things, but then you’re like, ‘You know what? They’re just people.’
“Just like the media,” she adds. “You read something in the paper and just when I start to get mad, I’m like, ‘You know what? They’re just people.’ People do stuff. People will let you down. They won’t be around, but hey they’re just people, what are you gonna do?”
The as-yet-undecided first single should drop within the month. And Latifah says since she jetted away for a break, she’s not even sure what the finished product will sound like. “I did all my parts and then I went on vacation. So they put people on it while I was gone and they’ve been waiting to talk to me to surprise me,” she adds (though she is certain Busta Rhymes makes a cameo). “I’m actually supposed to talk to them and find out who the hell is on that damn album. I’m sure there is no one on there I don’t like.”
New material has leaked from Jennifer Hudson’s self-titled debut album. The Timbaland-produced “Pocketbook” is rumored to be Jhud's 2nd single and also has Luda lending 16 bars to the joint. This song may have to grow on me. I mean, it's good to hear something different from Jennifer tho. Her vocals sound good & Luda's rap is expectional as always, but it's just something about it....Let me give it a few more listens before I make judgement. But for right now, what do ya'll think?
Ok so last night Polow Da Don presented TREY SONGZ, "One Night Only" at Opera Night Club in ATL. And yes ladies, he was still looking for a Wonder Woman. KidduNot was in the building, so you know the camera's were rolling & the lights were flashing. Here' what we captured.
Ok so it's offical, the bitch is back! A Lil' Kim track, "Shook Hands", leaked from the new Clue mixtape. Produced by Trackmasters, Kim once again proves why she is a lyrical beast on this track! Seriously, Kim went in on this track....And the dissing is not over, she let Remy & Junior M.A.F.I.A have it. Let me not say no more, take a listen! If this track is anything close to what the album sounds like, ya'll better get ready!

Marcus Lloyd I respect your work, I truly do! However, I am about to rant-a-fool on yo ass. Marcus is a model by the way, who has really doin his thing & been on top his game at that. But what the hell is going on with his weight lost is my question? Wow, his new look is not a healthy one. Clearly, based off these recent pictures above, Marcus is on a new eating regimen. What it is? I don't know, but I want him off of it! He has dropped major lbs. thru the course of 2 years. He was at his heaviest in 2006, then he lost about umm maybe..15-20 lbs and looked decent. He was definitely ready for the runway. Now, Months after he shed the extra body fat, Marcus has taken it to another level and dropped even more weight. Now He looks a fool, he is too skinny. He almost looks like a little boy now. My concern, you ask? Is this healthy!?!?! I know you hear the saying like "Don't feed the models" but damn somebody needs to, some babyfood or something. I mean dieting is fine don't get me wrong, but don't starve yourself for goodness sake. It's comes a point where you (yourself) know or should know when to stop!
In these pics above^ you can see Marcus at his heaviest in the wifebeater....then on the far right you see marcus at a "perfect weight" so to speak. It was cool then. I don't know what went on in his head or who whispered in his ear, but "thin is not in" iKidduNot! The industry is blinding these young models thinking that any amount of body fat is too much, when in actuality, being too thin is unhealthy. Thats the got'cha got'cha! People we need to do better. Stop letting this crazy industry run & ruin your life in the process of getting to the top! And that being said, Im talking all aspects of the entertainment industry, from entertainment to fashion.
**Check Out The Kanye/paparazzi Tussle** ^Video
As you all know, Kanye and his road manager were arrested This morning at LAX because of an altercation with some paparazzi. I'm happy to report that Yeezy and has manager were released this Thursday following the payment of a $20,000 bail!
If I could give any advice to my idol and favorite rapper at this time, it would be to keep your head high during this crazy time. And most importantly, DO NOT DELAY THE RELEASE OF 808'S AND HEARTBREAKS!!!! LOL
In an article on mtv.com, Sean Garrett and Keri Hilson discuss how they plan to bring a new sound out of Britney Spears. Here's what the two songwriters say:
"This time, we're going to try some different sounds," Garrett said. "We're really trying to push the sound limits. We're definitely going to make sure it's hot, you know, great songs that fans will go crazy over, but I'm not just [aiming to] 'stay in the clubs.' If it's a ballad, a midtempo, fusing techno with hip-hop or whatever it is, what matters is that it has some sounds we've never heard before."
While Garrett wants to push Spears sonically, Hilson said she wants to push the singer lyrically and get some more meaningful songs on the album.
"Of course, everybody's giving her party smashes, and I've heard some of them, and they're great," Hilson said. "But I think we can dig a little deeper this time. I want it to feel a little more real and organic. That's where I want to go with her."
Hilson is due to sit down with Spears in the next week to get on the same page. "We need to figure it out," she said. "Sit down, have a conversation, and see what she's feeling at the moment, and take a bird's-eye view of that."
Sounds Interesting... I know I'm excited to hear Hilson's take on Britney... whatabout you?
