Isaiah Thomas accused of sexual harassment
The lawsuit also alleges that Thomas told Browne Sanders he was pushing for more home games at noon on Sundays. His plan, according to Browne Sanders, was to have opposing players go to certain clubs, including strip clubs, that Thomas had connections with on Saturday nights and get them drunk so they would be sluggish for the game the next day.
There's been a dearth of new/notable music lately, so let me give you some of my thoughts.
- Y'all niggas get front page articles mention Jay-Z name
Nooooooot because of any of Jay's dis tracks or snakes in the grass or oochie wally wally, but because what the hell has Esco done since '96 besides the beef? Not to beat a dead horse, but I don't really give a shit about Ether or Takeover because they are entertaining for a certain period of time, yet hold no true impact over the career arc of the artists. Besides the benefits and publicity Nas received from the beef, nothing really came of it - he dropped an ok God's Son and a tremendously boring Streets Disciple. I'm considering this relevant because of the whole Giles v. Carter fracas. Unless Cam comes out with a track so damaging that we can no longer listen to Jay, five years down the road we won't be talking about You Gotta Love It. We'll be talking about what they did after, if Cam's post-Killa Season effort lived up to his superb track record, and if Jay's forthcoming comeback album is as hot as it should be. This beef shit is irrelevant without good music. (And y'all buy this shit caught up in the hype)
- TI album info

Label: Grand Hustle/Atlantic
Beats: Rich Rubin, Neptunes, Just Blaze, Hi-Tek, Kwame, Fury, DJ Toomp. Don Cannon, Chad West, Khano, Keith Mack, Lil' C, Black Mob, Big Resse
Features: Jay-Z, Young Jeezy, P$C, Lil' Wayne, B.G., Alicia Keys, Young Dro, Governor
First Single: Ride Wit Me
Sales Pitch: "Trap Muzik laid the foundation, but missed a couple mainstream recors. Urban Legend was great, but it missed the creativity people wanted from me. King is my most well-rounded project since I'm Serious."
I'm SERIOUSLY checking for this album, probably more so than anything besides the new Rae and that Clipse album that I've given up on. I think he might be working with a few too many big name producers, and not sticking with his signature Toomp sounds, but that Leak shit was hot and TIP can hold my attention like few rappers in the game. Shit, though. Rick Rubin? Neptunes? Just Blaaaaaze? Looks like fire.
Oh, and fuck Ride Wit Me as the first single, What You Know is the hottest cut of a young '06.
- David at So Many Shrimp feels exactly as I do about the new Ghost album on the way.
- Clipse in NYC on March 3rd.
Oh, and BG + Mannie Fresh > Baby + Weezy F + A bunch of east coast producers on an overrated album.
