Addi Stewart was a music reporter for years at NOW magazine Toronto. Makes me just wanna get into the music biz myself soon. Addi's crazy! They even have his name engraved into the sidewalk near MuchMusic. I am not making this up. Below is proof. When your name is engraved on the sidewalk next to VH1, it's not who you know, it's who KNOWS YOU!
Since 1996, Adhimu "Mindbender" Stewart has consistently created a completely new definition of MC, every single time he rhymes into a mic. His mission is to open the mind's third eye while simultaneously satisfying the third ear of the listener, taking them into a brave new world where intellectual song concepts, creative metaphors, and deep social commentaries reign supreme. Currently, he is preparing many projects, one with Supreme Being Unit rhyme partner Conspiracy, called "In Space, No One Can Hear You Rhyme", as well as a collaboration album with Micill Shazaam Write called "Obeah".

JStavo is a dynamic Virginian crooner based out of Atlanta who has landed into the music business BIG time. Growing up in a great household, encouraging younger kids to follow their dreams as he spoke to KJ about was very interesting. He is an independent artist who is already making waves performing at radio station benefit concerts like top rated WPGC-FM in Washington DC opening for big artists like Amerie, Omarion, Brian Mcknight, and Doug E Fresh.
Below we discovered him on YouTube singing Beyonce's "Halo." It really is funny as he was cleaning the bathroom while the rest of us just sing in the shower.
JStavo struck us with talent. An easy going guy who wants to meet his Canadian fans, has two hit songs "Taken" feat Bambu and "Superman"which struck us to think about that pop/soul genre he says he belongs to. These hits are HOT.
He has his own blog that he solely writes about his daily activities. wants to be a music enterpreneur later endorsing and designing clothing. KJ even asked him when he goes on SNL, would he shout HipHossip out? We had that happen to us when Shawty Lo shouted us out on the BET Hip-Hop Awards in 2008.
Like I said in the promo, he's smooth, he's dynamic and he is the next big thing in 2010. JStavo will be seen one day on SNL, singing the anthem at the next Superbowl and even White House events. Now click here to listen to JSTAVO's dynamic phoner at our MySpace portal. More portals are coming. After that, then listen to the hit songs.

"(Matt) really wanted to do something nice for Rihanna this year since she didn't have much of a 21st birthday last year," says one source.
According to the insider, Kemp originally wanted to throw Rihanna a surprise party, but eventually Rihanna caught on and now knows there will be a small get-together.
E! News has learned that the party will be a low-key night with Kemp and Ri-Ri's "closest friends, good Jamaican food, a photo booth, dancing and a nice cake."
Party spies tell us the event will be held at a private residence in Phoenix, where Kemp is currently staying for spring training and where Rihanna arrived to yesterday from Australia to be with Kemp.
Even we at HipHossip captured this one in his early days...
“It has been brought to my attention that false promoters and booking agents are illegally using my name and likeness to promote concerts and club appearances for their own financial gain,” said the statement. “It is frustrating for me to hear that many of my fans, who like myself are innocent victims in these scams, have been misled due to the greed of these promoters. I apologize to any fan that has been a victim of these circumstances or feels let down by false advertising. Please be assured that my team and I take these matters seriously and are actively cooperating with authorities. I cannot thank my fans enough for supporting my music and all that I do.”
The Young Money star is booked solely by International Creative Management. For the most up to date and accurate concert and club appearance dates for Drake fans can visit his official MySpace page. —Brooklyne Gipson XXL magazine

OLYMPICS PLANE SAGA: RAP STAR SKY BLU AND FORMER REPUBLICAN PREZ CANDIDATE IN AIR CANADA ALTERCATION TO VANCOUVER!
A rap star says former Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney first touched him -- and not the other way around -- during a confrontation aboard an Air Canada flight that was preparing to take off from Vancouver, British Columbia.
Sky Blu, whose given name is Skyler Gordy, says in a video posted Friday on TMZ.com that he was trying to go to sleep when he leaned his seat back on the Vancouver-to-Los Angeles flight Monday. He says Romney loudly told him several times to straighten it and then grabbed his shoulder.
"I just react -- boom -- get off me, you know," Gordy says in the video, taking a swing through the air as he speaks. "And I didn't take it any further than that. I just wanted the man not to touch me; that's it."
Gordy says that Romney's wife, Ann, screamed and that the plane returned to the gate before two police officers escorted him off. After being detained briefly, he was allowed to buy a ticket for another flight.
Romney spokesman Eric Fehrnstrom had no comment Friday about whether Gordy was the man with whom Romney had the confrontation. But aides said this week that Romney told them he thought the other person was a band member. Read the rest

The Eagles topped all other groups in total gold and platinum awards with 48, while the late Michael Jackson led male solo artists with 44, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Three albums tied for the decades highest certification at 11times platinum: 'N Sync's No Strings Attached, Shania Twain's Up! and Outkast's 2003 double Speakerboxxx/The Love Below.
Gold awards are presented for sales of 500,000 albums, digital songs or ringtones, and platinums are handed out to artists who pass the one million mark. Each multi-platinum award is counted as a separate certification. A music video goes gold at 25,000 units, platinum at 50,000 and multiplatinum for every 50,000 units after that.
Akon signed the Poker Face hitmaker to his KonLive label at Interscope Records in 2007 after she was dropped by another of the company's imprints.
GaGa's Grammy-winning hits have gone on to dominate music charts across the globe, and Akon admits he could quit his own career for good and continue to live in luxury thanks to the lucrative deal.
Recalling his agreement with Interscope chairman Jimmy Iovine, Akon tells the Associated Press, "I was like, 'Yo, I want to sign that right there. She needs to be under my umbrella. Jimmy was like, 'Yeah, whatever you want. Take her. Let's get it done.' And she just blossomed into a super megastar, man."She's pretty much retired me. She was definitely a blessing. She came at the right moment. I'm glad I believed in her, boy. That goes to show you, if you believe in something strong enough, it will pay off."
Devar Hurd was convicted of stalking and aggravated harassment in December, and, on Thursday, a Manhattan judge sentenced the wannabe rapper to two years imprisonment. Hurd has already served eight months behind bars awaiting his trial and subsequent sentencing.
The 31 year old was arrested last year after texting a string of lewd messages to the Grammy winner's mother, Tina Douglas - including sexual and romantic scenarios and explicit images of his genitalia.Hurd defended his actions, insisting the messages were harmless "banter".
Two of them shot outside their houses. None of this would have happened if they hadn't been famous. Fame attracts lunatics. "I never had a bodyguard, ever, until Gianni died. I don't like celebrity anymore."

That’s when the rockers will be inducted into the Canadian Music Hall, as part of this year’s Juno Awards ceremonies.
“To be inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame is a tremendous honour,” said singer-guitarist Myles Goodwyn in a statement. “On behalf of all April Wine members, past and present, a heartfelt thank-you to the Juno Awards.”
Formed in Halifax in 1969, April Wine have accumulated a lengthy string of hits during their four-decade career — including Bad Side of the Moon, Weeping Widow, Could Have Been a Lady, Tonight is a Wonderful Time to Fall in Love, Roller, You Won’t Dance With Me, Say Hello and I Like to Rock.
This year’s Juno Awards will be handed out in St. John’s, Nfld. The full list of nominees will be revealed March 3.
The Rise and Fall of Deathrow records. Listen to this interview with Lara Lavi. There is nobody that can tell me that Lara cannot manage her own company. I know this woman and she is far from unintelligent! She is a smart woman and should guide her assets. Lara is the BEST! Below is Sean Jones that she talked about.

Dwayne Carter, as he is known legally, was scheduled Tuesday to be sentenced to a year in prison on gun charges by Supreme Court Judge Charles Solomon.
In the surprise request, Wayne's attorney, Stacey Richman, asked the judge to push back the Grammy award winner's sentencing so he could take care of a dental-related issue, and travel to Florida to do so.
Solomon granted the adjournment and moved the hip-hop star's sentencing to March 2.
The best dentists are actually in the jails!
