#RandomThoughts: What Will HOT 97′s Summer Jam 2011 Bring?

*Quick Disclaimer* This is in no way me revealing the line up for Summer Jam 2011, just some quick thoughts on this years show.
Ok, so when I first started UHTN back in 2005/2006, the first post/thing you would see on my page would be an open letter. Whether it was addressing industry BS, career woes, or just maybe some motivational shit for my subscribers, it was always something up.  And I would write it to an instrumental (I’m writing to the Clipse’s  ”Popular Demand” right now.)  But with Twitter/Tumblr emerging as the canvas for random emotional outbursts and other personal tidbits, I’ve strayed from that format. So, in a brave attempt to keep my site from looking like everyone else’s in some form or fashion I’ve decided to try and being with #RandomThoughts at least three times a week. Not every morning because I know I won’t be able to do so, but I can do three times a week.
HOT 97′s Summer Jam has always been a pivotal outing in the Tri-State- and that’s a known fact. Back when I was a young twerp stealing tapes out my sisters room she would always frequent the concert without even CONSIDERING bringing me along. Every year I would beg and plead, but to no avail…I would be left at home wondering what type of shit she got to witness. One year I almost got a ticket, but one of her punk ass friends swiped it at the last minute- I have yet to forgive either one of them.
However, over the past 4 year lil bro managed to get his weight up. I’m speaking industry and physically (I’m being told I’m filling into my #GrownManWeight. So not cool). I can’t remember EXACTLY my first year in attending the show on my own, but I know it was probably around the 2008 or 2009 mark. Either way, shit was fun as all fuck. Wait what year was the Swizz/Kanye beat battle? 2007? Ok, yeah that was my first year. And let me tell you, THAT SHIT? That shit was fucking crazy. Beat for beat? Kanye talking his arrogant, flamboyant BULLSHIT and Swizz on his New York shit which speaks volumes when on the home turf. Personally, Swizz got him. I love Ye, but Swizz has to many joints to toy with.
There’s been plenty of memories over the past 4 years at Summer Jam. Some monumental. Some snoozers. But quite frankly, I’m ready for a monumental show this year. I’ve been attending more shows than usual over the past 16 months and it seems like folks are TRYING to step their stage shows up. And it also seems like hip-hop is getting the message that SHOW MONEY is probably the BEST MONEY. But that’s a different #RandomThoughts. The most recent show I attended was Diddy’s Coming Home Tour at Hammerstein last weekend. Like him or not, Diddy put on a god damn show. Maybe I was just on that Ciroc a little too hard? See what I did there? (Whad Up, Tola?). Regardless, it was Puff’s energy and catalogue that held over the excitement throughout the night.
Some of the artists that hit these stages today don’t really have that deep of a catalogue to face off with a packed venue for two hours. Well at least not that big of a catalogue to keep folks entertained. I mean let’s face it, if you’re not Jay, Yeezy, Em, Diddy, 50, maybe Busta, Mary J, Alicia Keys, R.Kelly, Outkast, DMX, The Lox, Nas, Snoop, Ludacris, Nelly (maybe), Wayne, T.I. and a few others, you’re going to a lose a few of those Summer Jam attendees. Now it’s not to say these newbies can’t get their rocks off, but having tricks up the sleeve is pretty beneficial to them during this night.
It’s an important night. Not just to the fans, but to the artists. Summer Jam is one of those stages that you have to show and prove. Can’t be lazy. Can’t mess up your fucking lyrics..NOT ONE. I digress. So for this year’s show. I want folks to show their ass. I want one of these young gunnerz to prove why they deserve to be mentioned with the elite. And to the OG’s, bring your asses back to where it all started. You’re not to cool for fucking Summer Jam. Who told you you didn’t have to pass through that stage? I hope one of your flunkies didn’t tell you Summer Jam was played out? I sincerely hope not. It’s already bad enough you dudes don’t throw out random freestyles anymore, but to alienate a stage you’ve prolly BEGGED to bless…fucking ridiculous. I don’t care what international gig you’re booked for, better bring your ass back across that pond.
I could go on for DAYS, but I won’t. Again, these are just some random thoughts that were circling the dome during my morning shower. I hope it resonated with some of you. Well I know it did for you Tri-State folks. Oh and this isn’t a shot at anyone, but can we keep the surprise appearances to 3 an act? It’s cool to bring your superstar buddies out, but having 90 niggas on stage and not know WHO THE FUCK is performing can be quite annoying for the nosebleeders.

Researchers warn that the sexually transmitted disease gonorrhea is winning the battle against medicine's arsenal of antibiotic treatments.

Researchers in both US and UK recently expressed concern about the increasing number of cases of gonorrhea found in each country that are resistant to certain drugs used to treat it, noting its "catastrophic" implications for the future of controlling the disease.

In 2009, nearly a quarter of strains of gonorrhea tested in the US were resistant to drugs commonly used to treat the disease, including penicillin, tetracycline, fluoroquinolones, or a combination of these, stated health and science news website MyHealthNewsDaily on April 19. Early data from 2010 provides even scarier news: gonorrhea is showing resistance to the only drugs physicians have left to treat it, a class of antibiotics called cephalosporins.

The US-based Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), who issued the 2009 data last month, notes that if left untreated, gonorrhea could spread to the blood or joints, and could even be life-threatening. People with gonorrhea typically show no symptoms, although it can lead to complications, such as infertility and in women, chronic pelvic pain, and in men, a painful testicular condition known as epididymitis.

International experts, such as the CDC and the World Health Organization, are working on strategies to prevent the emergence of antibiotic resistance, and strongly advocate practicing safe sex and getting screened for sexually transmitted diseases, including gonorrhea, if you are sexually active.



Cops stumbled upon a horrific murder-suicide when they arrived at a Massachusetts home to find a man cutting his own leg with a power saw.

Police in Plymouth, Mass. had been called to the house late Monday by concerned relatives.

When they opened the door, they witnessed Keith Lincoln pick up a circular saw and cut into one of his legs causing "serious injury," said District attorney Timothy Cruz.

As they continued inside, they found a dead woman and two dead dogs, police said.

Lincoln, 49, was rushed to a hospital, where he died from blood loss.

It was not immediately clear how the woman died, but police are investigating it as a murder-suicide.

Authorities said they would have to rely on dental records to confirm the woman's identity because of the condition of her body, The Boston Globe reported.

Officials did not know how the dogs died.

Neighbors said Lincoln lived with his wife, Jettie, and that the couple had moved from Vermont last year.


A man whose face was destroyed while saving a woman from a car accident can smile for the first time in a decade.

Mitch Hunter, a 30-year-old former Army private from Indianapolis was revealed Wednesday as the fourth person in the U.S. to receive a face transplant.

"It was a full face transplant, including the skin between the ears and from forehead to chin," said Dr. Bohdan Pomahac, director of plastic surgery transplantation at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston.

The man underwent the 14-hour operation last week, a surgical marathon during which doctors also transplanted his nose, lips and the nerves that allow for feeling and make facial expressions possible.

"So far, it's been excellent," Pomahac said. "He has already been discharged, and everything has gone smoothly."

The brave hoosier's family said they were grateful to the family of the boy who donated his face to their son.

"We respect and admire their courage and intend to honor them by continuing in their giving spirit," they aid.

The donor's family said his dying wish was that his organs be donated to help as many people as possible.

"When we heard that there was a match for his facial tissue, we were overwhelmed and did not hesitate to say yes," the boy's family said in a statement. "It is a gift to us to know that another young man's life could be so positively changed."

Hunter lost much of his face in a freak 2001 accident when the car he was riding in hit a telephone pole. As he pushed a live wire off the female driver, thousands of volts of electricity surged through his body, severely burning his face.

His operation came a month after a Texas man, Dallas Wiens, underwent a complete face transplant at Brigham and Women's Hospital. The hospital has also done a partial transplant on James Maki, who fell face first on an electrified Boston subway rail.

While doctors are optimistic that Hunter will make a full recovery, he will require several more tune-up operations and be on drugs to prevent tissue rejection for the rest of his life.

The first successful face transplant operation was performed on a horribly disfigured woman at the Cleveland Clinic in December 2008.

Rare Footage Of 2Pac Photoshoot For 'Makaveli' Album!

You never know what you’ll find on the Internet. Here’s film from the set of 2Pac’s iconic “Becoming Clean” photo shoot. Shot by photographer David LaChapelle, the photo was taken following Pac’s release from prison. Below is an interview of LaChapelle discussing the shoot.

DM: I feel that a lot of your work emphasises on beauty in people, regardless of colour or size. One of my favourite pieces of your work is “Becoming Clean” with Tupac Shakur amongst others. How was it like work with him?
DL: Tupac was great, he was very sensitive and is truly a good person. I wrote to his mum when he died and she sent me flowers and gave me his last song, “Ghetto Gospel.” When we did the shoot, he had just come out of prison and every shot has a reason, it’s never random, so this was the idea of the photo shoot, him becoming clean. He had given this interview when he was still in prison and he really opened up and was so honest. I had read it and thought it was so truthful so for the work I did with him, there was this idea of washing away and rebirth. And we did another shoot where he posed as a slave on a cotton field. They traced rapping and rhyming to “call and repeat” during slavery time in sugar cane and cotton fields to pass the time. It’s on the Hotel Lachapelle book. Tupac came to the shoot 2 hours early, which was very unusual for a rapper. So I wasn’t ready for the shoot and he didn’t care. He reminded me of my black friends whom I went to art schools with, he was so cool, open-minded and chill. He wasn’t judgemental. Then later on, I found out that he had gone to an art school. He left behind a big bag of socks and underwear because he had just come out from prison and never picked it up. He died shortly after. I still wear his socks sometimes (laughs).
