4.4 million people between the ages of 18 and 49 reportedly tuned in to the "celebreality" debut earlier this week, which has 20 men competing for the affection of New York (born Tiffany Pollard). This isn't the first time VH1's reality programming's made headlines.
As previously reported, the second season finale of "Flavor of Love" drew a staggering 7.5 million viewers, making it the most watched show on basic cable for all of '06.
"ego trip's The (White) Rapper Show" also made a impressive debut on Monday, receiving 2.3 million viewers. The controversial show starring former 3rd Bass member MC Serch and Grammy Award-wining producer Prince Paul (De La Soul) features a handful of Caucasian emcees contending for $100,000.

Videotape Surfaces In Supreme McGriff Murder TrialA former NYPD detective took the stand yesterday (January 10) to show jurors a videotape of rapper E-Money Bags secretly recorded by an associate of druglord Kenneth "Supreme" McGriff minutes before his death.
One MC's trash is another MC's treasure.Game can thank Common for his new single, "Wouldn't Get Far." Com had nothing to do with the production, but after he turned down the Kanye West-produced track, 'Ye slid it to his West Coast partna.
"Game had texted me like, 'Yo, what's up? I'm finishing the album,' " West recalled Tuesday on the Los Angeles set of a video for the single. "And you know how [producers usually] send, like, 12 beats? I sent the one beat and said, 'I got this one for you. This is it, right here.' If he had passed on it, I would've used it myself, but I'm happy that Game went ahead and did it."It's also not the first Kanye track Common has passed on: Several tracks from Kanye's Late Registration were offered to Com, and he's since passed on a track they were collaborating on called "The Glory"
It took several months, but their collaboration is now ready to hit the small screen in the form of a music video. Game said it's tough, though, keeping up his patented Compton snarl when hanging around the lovable Louis Vuitton Don."He chips away at my gangsta," Game said during a lunch break. "He's got so much style and class. He jumps around in the videos. He's saying how all the chicks dig him; they dig me too, [but] he gets a smile on a gangsta's face. Kanye is one of my homies — we both young, black, rich and famous. And we having fun in California."

Today January 10th is the birthday of Afeni Shakur.
Not only is Afeni Shakur the mother of The Greatest and Most influential M.C. of all time Tupac Shakur (2Pac). She is also one of the original members of the Black panther party.
Afeni means "dear one" or "lover of the people” and she lives up to her name, as her love for the hip hop community shows us.
She is truly a lover of the people and to all of us she is a ‘very’ dear one.
I would personally like to wish Madame Shakur a happy 60th bday.(props to thuglifearmy, and Rizoh)

Queens Drug Kingpin With Rap Links in Murder-for-Hire Trial
A legendary druglord with ties to the hip-hop industry was back on trial on Tuesday, charged in a federal death penalty case with paying $50,000 to have two rivals gunned down in 2001.
The case against Kenneth "Supreme'' McGriff "is about a man with the power and the will to get people murdered,'' prosecutor Jason Jones told jurors in opening statements in Brooklyn.In the 1980s, McGriff founded the Supreme Team, a notoriously profitable and ruthless drug crew that became legend on the same Queens streets that later produced rap stars like Ja Rule, Jay-Z and 50 Cent.
He could face the death penalty if convicted of murder conspiracy, drug dealing and other charges.Defense attorney David Ruhnke claimed that after his client served several years for an earlier drug conviction, he went straight in the late 1990s and pursued his dream of producing movies and music by teaming with Irv "Gotti'' Lorenzo, a neighborhood friend who headed the successful Murder Inc. record label.
"This was an effort to make money legitimately, to change the direction of his life,'' Ruhnke said in his opening argument, with McGriff at the defense table in a suit and tie.But authorities allege that behind the scenes, McGriff resumed his drug dealing operations in New York and Baltimore, and used Murder Inc. to launder more than $1 million in proceeds.
The bloodshed also returned: When a little-known rapper named E-Money Bags shot and killed one of McGriff's friends in a dispute in 1999, the defendant allegedly hired a Harlem hit team two years later to kill the rapper and an associate he feared might retaliate.
"He wanted those men erased to settle an old score'' and to show "Supreme was not to be crossed,'' the prosecutor said.Ruhnke said both victims were known thugs who were armed at the times of their deaths. He also argued that the government had built its case the false testimony of admitted criminals hoping to see their prison time reduced.
McGriff, 46, was originally indicted along with Lorenzo and Lorenzo's brother Chris, a Murder Inc. executive. After being granted a separate trial, the brothers were acquitted in 2005 of money-laundering charges.Before that trial, a judge rejected prosecutors' attempt to introduce evidence that McGriff, upset over some of 50 Cent's lyrics, ordered his shooting in 2000.
The best-selling rapper was hit nine times.At the Supreme Team's peak, McGriff and his nephew, Gerald "Prince'' Miller, employed scores of crack dealers in and around a Queens housing project and took in $200,000 a day, authorities said.The team used rooftop sentinels with two-way radios to thwart police.
It inflicted violence against rivals and traitors, resulting in at least eight murders in 1987 alone."Yo, when you here talk of the south side, you hear talk of the team,'' rapper 50 Cent said in one ode to the crew. "See (people) feared Prince and respected 'Preme.''

Star Calls Martin Luther King A Hypocrite And Jesse Jackson
STAR of "Star and Buc Wild" fame is mercifully gone from radio, but his outrageous mouth is louder than ever - with the axed Power 105.1 deejay gleefully ripping civil rights icons Jesse Jackson and Martin Luther King Jr. as big phonies in his jolting new autobiography.
As you'll recall, Star - whose real name is Troi Torain - got fired, then arrested last May when he threatened to sexually abuse and urinate on rival Hot 97 personality DJ Envy's 4-year-old daughter. He called himself "the new Lenny Bruce" and vowed to be back with a vengeance.
That vengeance is "Objective Hate," out next month from Aquinna Satellite LLC. He blasts Jackson, "this 'Cool Daddy Cool,' stick-it-to-the-man rabble-rouser with a Ph.D. in flim flam . . . Watch him as he lives the scam and works the sham to the soundtrack of 'Pusher Man.' Sponsored by Rainbow mystical bull[bleep] and private funky dividends, he'll be sure you have not seen the last of his collection plate" - whatever that means.
Of King, Star writes: "[He's] a total hypocrite whose agenda quashed the rising spirit of anarchy in the heart of black America. As he hid behind the cross, he hated being oppressed but realized it enhanced his [stud] game . . . His mystified hypothetical dream, with no economic structure, now hangs over the Negro's head like a Mississippi noose."
Star slams Madonna as "an out-of-tune singing sensation" and a "poor man's version of Marilyn Monroe" with a "worn body." Bill Maher is "a low-budget racist camouflaged as a comedian . . . If he were a citizen of Haiti, he would have been beaten, dragged, stabbed and shot."
Star also rates the carnal attributes of certain female performers. On Mya: "The sex would probably be dyn-o-mite, but not enough to justify a trip to the nearest jeweler." On Lil' Kim: "Looks great in the morning, probably gives great sex, and is a great friend, but be prepared for mood swings and back talk." On India.Arie: "She probably likes to be choked during climax."
Rapper NYOIL Says "50 CENT SHOULD BE LYNCHED
Hip Hop newcomer NYOIL has controversially called for the lynching of 50 CENT, claiming the reckless promotion of gun violence and drug use in his music is having a damaging effect on today's youth.
The Staten Island, New York, native is causing a stir in the rap community with the track 'Y'ALL SHOULD GET LYNCHED',
a song posted on his MySpace webpage which condemns the current climate of hip-hop and calls for all "fake-ass gangstas" to "get lynched."
His beef with other rappers, including JIM JONES of THE DIPLOMATS and FLAVOR FLAV from PUBLIC ENEMY,
is that they are sending out irresponsible messages to youngsters who idolise their every move.
He says, "It makes me mad when I see kids who don't care for education, for whom mediocrity is all.
"We have to take some of the responsibility: every song you hear tells you about this woman's a ho, or he's selling this drug, or I'm going to shoot you if you don't do that.
Grandmaster Flash & FF Get Hall of Fame Nod
Hip-Hop has long been the sad clown of music, so its no wonder that in 2007 we are finally getting our first entrants into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. The legendary Grandmaster Flash and The Furious Five, after being passed over for induction the past two years, have been selected as one of five acts to make the Hall in 2007.
DJ Grandmaster Flash, one of the godfathers of hip-hop, and his crew of legendary emcee Melle Mel, Kid Creole, Scorpio, Rahiem and the late Cowboy, made platinum hits such as the oft-imitated The Messege and White Lines (Don't Do It).
The induction ceremony will take place on March 12th at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City. Other inductees this year include R.E.M., Van Halen, Patti Smith and The Ronettes.
The Game Getting Cameos From Video Vixens For 'Wouldn't Get Far' Shoot
The Game will be shooting a video for "Wouldn't Get Far," the second single from his sophomore album, The Doctor's Advocate.
According to MTV, the video, in which he (and criticizes) many video vixens, may just include cameos from several of the vixens he pokes fun at. "I think a couple of them are coming to the video [set], so we'll see what's up," Game revealed.
"They had a choice," Game's manager, Jimmy "Henchman" Rosemond, who helped smooth things over with the displeased women, told MTV.
"They had two choices: You could either be clowned or we can make this fun where people won't take it as serious. If you fight against it, it becomes serious, 'cause we could get the look-alikes and clown in fun. But if you participate, it can be more impactful.
For instance, [model] Melyssa Ford, we'll have her in a Honda Accord [in the video], but then Game will kinda wake up out of that spell and we'll have her in a 500 Benz. We'll clean it up for her. It's all in fun, though."
In addition to the video, Rosemond revealed that they plan to shoot a mini-movie that will be included in the re-release of Doctor's Advocate sometime in April or March.
"I was on my way back from my snowboarding trip in Northern Cali," Game told MTV. "I'm driving five hours and thinking about [the Roc-A-Fella Records film] 'Streets Is Watching' and how Jay-Z did that. ... I was saying, 'I got enough songs that mean something to do that.' I mean, 'Old English,' 'One Night,' the real gutter joints where there's a lot of feelings where I could really get at n----s. It'll be ill, though. We gonna keep it in mind and try to work it all out."
As he continues to push and promote his latest album, he plans to tour through Canada, release some new mixtape and bring some of his Black Wall Street artists to the spotlight, including Juice and a group he's put together called N----s For Life. "I got five of the hottest n---as from the West Coast you never heard of, and we gonna roll," he said.
