With Rico Love on the boards, Fat Joe and Jennifer Lopez reunite without a care in the world. Their competitors? Those are the ones allegedly “stressin.'” The beat is catchy, but J-Lo’s soft vocals get overpowered by the production out a certain points. No word yet on what future project Fat Joe has this intended for.

A new M.O.P. album is in the works! To whet your appetite, the Mash Out Posse enlists DJ Premier for scratch chorus duties to flesh out Fizzy Womack’s production. And you can’t go wrong with a Tears for Fears sample.
Credit due to Cash & Marvelous, whose 1988 track “Ugly People Be Quiet” was the first song I can recall that sampled this gem.

“MY NAME IS FREDRO STARR, NIGGA! DO YOUR GOOGLES! [SIC]” – FREDRO STARR
A routine Power 105.1 Breakfast Club interview with Onyx instantly became heated after Charlamagne made a slick comment about Fredro Starr’s past history with Brandy. For those who don’t remember, Fredro claimed on an ancient Forbes DVD clip that he had an intimate relationship with Brandy during their Moesha days. Fredro had since retracted the statement, but Charlamagne joking about it must have brought up some bad memories from that fallout.
Considering they’ve literally been in the game over 20 years, it’s somewhat shocking to see Fredro get that upset during an interview (especially considering whose show they were on). Sticky Fingaz was standoffish for most of the clip as well and that could be attributed to the overall downhill turn the interview took at Charlamagne’s comment.
The comment gets made at 5:30 and matters start unraveling at the 8:15 mark.

The fight has been widely panned, but Garcia doesn’t appear to have slacked off in training. The bout will be contested at a catchweight of 142 pounds.

Shannon Briggs is back to tormenting Wladimir Klitschko. New footage has surfaced of Briggs once again interrupting Klitschko’s training to demand a fight. What started as playful banter turned serious when another former champ, Michael Moorer, had to usher Briggs out once the shoving started. Wladimir Klitschko is currently in training for a defense against Kubrat Pulev on September 6.
Unless Briggs can string together at least a win or two wins against a top 10-15 guy, this will be as close as he’ll ever get to facing Wladimir in the ring.
