I showed up at Bagatelle last night to cover Nas‘ album release party for ‘Life Is Good’ on behalf of Crunk + Disorderly prepared for only one thing – unlimited Moët. As an Oklahoma girl who just relocated to New York City six weeks ago, I’ve never been to an industry party and the biggest celebrity I’ve ever been within ten feet of is Toby Keith. So I decided to go with an open mind, a fully charged phone, and a two drink maximum just to keep it classy.

I arrived exactly at 10:00, made it inside by 10:30, and was half-drunk by 10:45. Girls dressed like Kardashians stood at the entrance, smiling and holding trays of miniature bottles of Moët. Two drink maximum? Whoops. Yes I sure will take one, thank you miss. And yes I sure will take another. Y’all are so sweet.

Waiters buzzed around the room offering appetizers I’ve never seen before, but since I didn’t want to drink on an empty stomach (and rarely turn down a snack) I ate them anyway.

Everyone there seemed to know each other but people were surprisingly friendly, breaking into big smiles when I told them I was present on behalf of Crunk + Disorderly. “Really?” said one girl, motioning to her friend. “I love that blog!” I smiled and kept drinking.

spotted c busta Quick Quotes: Charlamagne Tha God On His BET Awards Weekend Run In With Busta Rhymes

Only DJ Clue can solve this.

On Friday night, Busta Rhymes and Charlamagne Tha God of Power 105.1′s Breakfast Club traded verbal barbs while attending the SRC Records Pre-BET Awards Celebration honoring singer Melanie Fiona inside Hollywood eatery Nobu. If a picture is worth a 1,000 words what does this one say to you?

According to Vlad.com, the exchange was over negative comments that Wendy Williams said about Busta Rhymes years ago — before Charlamagne began his tenure as Wendy’s sidekick. Yeah, I’m not understanding that one either. This evening, I reached out to Charlamagne to weigh in on what partygoers witnessed last night:

Casket Sharp: Busta Rhymes

busta 1 Casket Sharp: Busta Rhymes

The age / relevancy debate in hip-hop isn’t going to come to a cease any time soon. At Saturday night’s 2009 BET Hip-Hop Awards Ice Cube encouraged rappers to continue to rhyme as long as they had a tongue.

But he ain’t say shit about staying on the scene looking like the cat old enough to be your “young” uncle down at Splashy Saturdays. If you rock an outfit similar to this one please have your tricking references prepared and ready for review.

You know he thought he was dressed to kill, too.

The last time I dedicated a post to Al Reynolds and his sweetened tea it wasn’t anything really worth talking about. Bad brown beard on deck? Check. Outstanding tang game? Double check.

But this time is totally different. To quote Busta Rhymes on the “Ante Up” remix this shit here feels like an whole entire world collapse, muthafuckas.  Get you a piece and two side orders, whore!

VIEW GALLERY FROM THE PARTY

I’ve got some good news and I’ve got some bad news. First the bad. Production is down in the wig crypt 47% this quarter due to the recession. Now the good. Kizzy, Beyaki, and Shug Avery have some extra itme to spend with each other now. Aww! It’s just like the video for “Girl” and shit.

The lovely ladies hooked up at Kizzy’s Surprise 28th Birthday Party on Tuesday night in Hollywood. Cousin Angie B!, La La Vasquez, Forest Whitaker, Busta Rhymes, Columbus Short, and a host of others came out to celebrate with Kiz.
