UPDATE (Nov 27): Here's a new audio of my former broadcasting pal and V103FM, Atlanta personality Ryan Cameron calling Usher on his cell phone when he heard the news.
Kanye West gave an emotional Thanksgiving tribute to his mom at London's O2 arena after rushing back to his European tour from her star-studded funeral in Oklahoma. "I wanna scream so loud for you, 'cause I'm so proud of you," West sang in a dramatic rendition of "Hey Mama."

What can I say? She came to Nigeria in 2006, On behalf of Radio Nigeria and ThisDay newspapers, I took her to an orphan girl's school and just look at the girl's faces.
Later I took Beyonce and her female band to a talk at a music school for kids. She really made the children's day!
She and our former first lady of Lagos State Remi Tinunbu and Senator Florence Ita-Giwa in charge of women's affairs even came to the concert. "Beyonce's music knows no boundaries" like Usher said last night. She is the female MICHAEL JACKSON!
Last night, they counted everything she has done in her career and I saw 4 major motion pictures and also 396 magazine covers. This is the 396th. Harpers Bazaar for Japan.
Now she has won the International artist Award on the AMA's last night. See the video below.........

French newspaper Le Parisian reports that Kanye West broke down as he tried to perform in a concert this past weekend.
He said the word, 'Mother' and just couldn't go any further. A back-up singer, the DJ and a guitar player came over to console him. It looked like he might collapse. He just couldn't continue. He just stood there in a spotlight, crying while the band continued playing.
Kanye then reportedly walked off the stage, regained his composure and returned to perform his hit song Stronger
The French paper described his return to the stage as follows:
He was very nervous, seemed to have gathered himself up, and had a lot of energy. He kept shouting out to the audience, 'I need you... I need you right now.' and the public was screaming back. It was magic. More at People magazine....

Sad developments continue in the Donda west story as Nancy Dillon of the New York Daily News reports from Los Angeles that Kanye West is devastated and seemingly "in denial" after a botched plastic surgery likely led to the sudden death of his beloved mother. A close friend revealed to Nancy and NY Daily News colleague Soo Youn:
"I don't think Kanye was aware Donda was getting the surgery, or certainly the extent of it," a family friend said. He loved and supported her just the way she was. He thought she was beautiful." More of this story here.

Rapper T.I has had his recent woes with the U.S feds on those gun charges. He now tells you via video from his luxurious home in Jonesboro, Georgia that he and his Grand Hustle record family will get thru this.....BUT don't believe what you read in the papers, radio and TV. Notice how he did not mention "BLOGGERS"? He knows that we are the real deal. LOL See his video address to you......

I found this disciplinary action online that is so disturbing. The fact that he was on Oprah and Discovery Channel gave him a lot of credibility. They even say he lied on his credentials too!
MEDIA ATTENTION: TV Doctor who performed Donda West's surgery was cited for numerous DUI's and paid $500,000 in malpractice suits in 2001!
Details are starting to emerge on the death of Kanye West's mother. In 2001, we now hear from the California Medical Board that Dr. Jan Adams had to pay about $500,000 worth of malpractice judgements and in December 2006, along with April 2007 he was cited for several problems with DUI! We hear he has two DUI convictions! Was he impaired when he performed the procedure? TMZ has the mugshot booking photo of one of his arrests. Why was he actively practicing with DUI convictions? Kanye can sue the California Medical Board, Adams, the hospital and even Discovery Health Channel for hiring him, (I've seen even worse lawsuits) but it will NEVER bring back Donda! This is a tragedy in the worst proportions!!!
Please stop the hating on the media. It is not us that have done wrong. TMZ rightly informed the public and that is what the media is supposed to do. Dr Jan Adams has written the book "What every woman of color should know about plastic surgery", he's been on Oprah Winfrey's show to promote that book and he hosted a reality show on Discovery Health Channel "Plastic Surgery Before and After." Dr Donda West's autopsy begins in 15 minutes within this posting and we would know what caused that death in 3 hours. Dr. Adams told TMZ earlier that he thinks she may have died of pulmonary embolism or a heart attack! That was before he realized TMZ was digging into his other life. Now he won't even talk to CNN! His lawyer probably told him the "media" is exploiting him. Stay tuned!!!!

Earlier this fall I reported an interview Kanye did on ABC's "Nightline" where she spoke about raising him and writing that book "Raising Kanye." She also showed us pictures of Kanye growing up. Above are those images I reported about. May her soul rest in peace. Kanye always talked about all the Louis Vuitton bags he bought mom and the cribs and that song in Late Registration he sang to his mom on Oprah..."Hey Mama." More at Allhiphop where you can read her interview with AHH. The saddest part of this is that we hear Kanye was in London, England as you know he's working with Michael Jackson on MJ's new album. We hear he's airborne on his way home now to LA. Below is the video of my favourite song on the new album "Good Morning."

Jay-Z's latest album, "American Gangster," will be released Tuesday. The CD takes its title and inspiration from the new movie co-starring Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe about Harlem drug lord Frank Lucas.
"Jay-Z is one of the pre-eminent creative forces in the music industry," Sirius executive Scott Greenstein said in a statement. "Over the last decade, he has truly changed the face of hip-hop and music culture."
Jay-Z Nation will feature music from the rapper's albums and songs by his favorite hip-hop artists.

Everyone knows Shawnte lives in ATL! Her bodyguard is Alfa-T who runs another top private club "DYME" where we had Brandy's album release"Full Moon" some 3 years ago. Da Brat is always everywhere J.D is but that has cooled off since Janet Jackson came into the picture. The last time I did anything with her was at BET exactly 11 years today, November 1st 1996. I was the guest on "Teen Summit" and she was the musical guest. I fist met her in that dressing room where the BET make up artists were doing our faces. Hits by Da Brat include the song "Funkdafied." She also has appeared on reality shows such as "Celebrity Fit Club" and "The Surreal Life."
