Lauryn Hill surprised the sea of hip hop fans at Governor’s Island on Saturday by bringing out guests Jay-Z, Beyonce, Alicia Keys, Swizz Beatz, Mary J. Blige, Chris Rock, and John Legend to say whaddup toward the end of her set at Rock The Bells. Too bad her performance left a lot to be desired. I mean, a lot.
Photographed with director Bill T. Jones, the prom queen and king rubbed shoulders with the homecoming queen and king of the school from across town at the post-theater reception of Fela! in New York City on Thursday night.
Produced by Jay-Z, Roots drummer Ahmir ‘Questlove’ Thompson, Stephen Hendel, and Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, the hit broadway musical about Nigerian Afrobeat pioneer Fela Anikulapo-Kuti received 11 Tony Award nominations earlier this month. Now that’s something worth clinking your champagne flutes to.
The Nasir Jones Relief Project is down one potential corporate sponsor. Jay-Z passed on the opportunity to assist in our efforts on Monday after having dinner at Bar Pitti when he was approached to purchase some sweets to benefit our QB brethren’s bank account. His response to the pusher man: “Nah I don’t eat chocolate”.
Guess it’s safe to assume he isn’t over “Ether” yet.
SAD LIL’ MAMA FACE RATING [OUT OF 5]
Before heading out to Nello’s for their anniversary dinner on Saturday night, Jay-Z and his prized yaki posed with the cast of the musical Chicago on Broadway at the Ambassador Theater. Former Destiny Child member Michelle Williams will continue to take some time away from the wig crypt, having extended her limited engagement with hit production through April 13.
The heat is still on Mathew’s testicles, kids.
Rumors that Beyoncé and husband Jay-Z are expecting their first child together lit up the Web and gossip pages today based on a Media Take Out report that cites a “rock solid” source. The website claims the singer is “fine and resting now” and expected to “continue working through her pregnancy,” and that Jay-Z is “extremely happy to be having his first child” with his wife. However a publicist for Beyoncé from her record company, Sony, tells Rolling Stone that the report is simply “untrue.” [source]

Cynthia Flopping (born November 3, 1978), also known by her stage name Lil’ Mo, is an American R&B singer and songwriter. She is best known for collaborating with artists such as Ja Rule, Angie Martinez, Sacario, Missy Elliott, Ol’ Dirty Bastard and Fabolous, and for her first, last, and ONLY hit single “Superwoman Pt. II.” What a shame.
And it wasn’t even that big of a hit either. SHAMEFUL for this rainbow head coon.
 The Greatest Skulldragging/Wig Snatching Ever
First and foremost, she is an irrelevant bish who has NOT sold an album since she mozied onto the hoe stroll in the 1970′s aka when sesame street premiered. The rest of this shit is LAHS. Born into a life that would grow to be without hairlines, career moves or websites Yung Ferb was given to a military family. Loving was raised primarily on Long Island, but moved about regularly as her family followed her father’s military assignments which she shoulda put some money in a bank because now it’s just sad. Along with her parents, Bishop Jacob and First-Lady Cynthia Loving Sr., she lived in Texas, Atlanta, Georgia, and Fayetteville, North Carolina before settling in Baltimore, Maryland. Dreams of becoming a famous singer began early and she always remained focused on this goal, performing in talent competitions wherever her family would settle.
|“||“Sometimes it was like: ‘why even unpack.’ But I got into music early, I always loved performing, and my family encouraged it. I used to dream of being a star in New York City. I used to enter talent contests wherever we went. If you listen to the interlude before the song My Story, you get an idea of what I mean. When I was little I was always telling everybody I was going to be a superstar. I haven’t changed my goal. I want to be a household name. I want people to say ‘pass the sugar, it’s right next to the Lil’ Mo.”||”|
she is known to use the word faggot! and a lil known fact is that she was 2 chromosomes away from having down syndrome that would explain why her face looks like that In 2001, she met her first husband, Al Stone, Washington, D.C. gas station; she initiated a conversation and asked for his number. He proposed to her in May, and they wed on August 29, 2001, after dating for only 5 months.
|“||“I met him March 28,” she remembered. “In May he proposed to me, by August 29 we were married. When you find your soul mate it doesn’t take forever to find out you’re gonna be together forever. We both were like, ‘I done been hurt, I been through the run of the mill||”|
Just two months later, Loving became pregnant, and on August 19, 2002, she gave birth to a daughter, Heaven Love’on Stone. Her second daughter, God’Iss Love Stone, was born on February 24, 2005. In December 2005, she filed for divorce from Al Stone. On March 18, 2007, she announced that she had reconciled with Stone, but by August the couple divorced.
She is currently married to Gospel recording artist Phillip Bryant; the couple welcomed a son, Justin McKenzie Phillip, on January 16, 2009. She currently is based in Odenton, Maryland. She better stay her ass in the middle of nowhere, or otherwise she will learn that YOU DO NOT MESS WITH THE GAYS, BITCH!
 Recording career
Signed with Elektra Records Loving entered the music industry as a protégé of then-labelmate Missy Elliott. Her debut single was entitled “5 Minutes” from the Why Do Fools Fall In Love soundtrack, co-written by Keli Nicole Price. She appeared on tracks for Elliott’s Da Real World in 1999. “Hot Boyz” became Loving’s breakout appearance. She was featured in the music video for the song’s remix alongside guest rappers Nas and Eve, and Elliott subsequently became a trusted adviser and friend. She was featured on rapper Jay-Z‘s song “Parking Lot Pimpin’” from the 2000 The Dynasty: Roc La Familia album. Not very well known, she was the female voice on the 2001 hit “Wifey” by Next. She has performed with and written songs for many artists including Blackstreet, Next, Bow Wow, Keith Sweat, Canela Cox, 3LW, Nicole Wray, Mocha and ODB.
Loving’s next big exposure came in early 2001, when she was featured on Ja Rule‘s single “Put It On Me” alongside Ja Rule’s Murder Inc. Records labelmate Vita. The single was a hit on both urban and pop radio, and reached number eight on the US pop charts, and more collaborations by Ja Rule and Lil’ Mo followed, including “I Cry”, which repurposed The O’Jays‘ 1978 hit “Cry Together”. In the Summer of 2002 Loving collaborated with label mates Angie Martinez & Sacario on If I Could Go.
 BASED(GOD) On A True Story (1999 – 2002)
With a contract in hand, she had to stand her ground when record company executives wanted to force a certain look on her, rather than allow her to sport the rainbow braids that have become something of a trademark for the singer. She has become an icon in Korean beauty supply stores across the nation, including those that only sell Vigorol Liquid Relaxer and mesh shower caps.
Unfortunately, not everyone was as thrilled with Lil’ Mo’s success as she, her friends, and collaborators were. Just before her debut was set to hit record store shelves in the summer of 2001, a man attacked the singer in San Francisco just outside the Warfield, a theater where she had just finished a performance. He used a champagne bottle to club the singer’s head. At the time Loving was unaware of the extent of her injury. Reportedly, she seemed more concerned about her broken designer shoe. This is why her face looks even more worse than the street corners of Detroit. Such a pity. She ended up with almost two dozen stitches and required a few coochie throws and a part time job at a Burger King to pay off that “broken designer shoe” her heaux ass almost died over. A majority of the publicity appearances scheduled for the following month, which had been specially timed to coincide with the release of her debut, had to be canceled until she regained her health. Unfortunately, she did not slip into a coma.
Later that year, Mo released her debut album, Based On A True Story, on Elektra Records, and had a successful single of her own, “Superwoman (Part II).” The “Part II” remix, featuring hip-hop newcomer Fabolous, was an up-tempo, hip-hop flavored record, using an instrumental track producer DJ Clue had originally intended for M.O.P.. The video was also a huge hit on MTV2 and BET. The album’s second single, “Gangsta”, contained a sample of Snoop Dogg‘s “Gin And Juice”, but failed to find an audience.
Despite the after effects she suffered, the singer persevered and continued to sing and write. Months later, she started working on air at Baltimore’s radio station WXYV, where she hosted a highly-rated drive time music program. She remained as a radio DJ until leaving in June 2002 to await her first daughter’s birth and devote more time to her singing career.
After a falling out with Ja Rule and Irv Gotti, caused by Loving’s accusations that they now favored using new Murder Inc. artist Ashanti for collaborations instead of her, she ended all associations with Murder Inc. in 2002. Since, Ja Rule has taken some shots at former friend, Loving, calling her a “loose pussy slut”, and crediting himself as the reason why she had any hits. She refused to fire back, calling the whole thing “juvenile.” Lil’ Mo tried to throw pussy from the free throw line to the entire Murder Inc. roster. They all threw it right back to her ass. Except Ashanti, whose sideburns drew power from its deep and powerful gravitational energy field. Since then, Lil’ Mo has struggled to find work and usually resorts to rinsing out Charli Baltimore’s pussy or juggling Tony! Toni! Toné!’s balls for a check.
 Meet the Girl Next Door (2003)
During the mid-2003, Mo appeared on two important singles with Fabolous, who partially had Mo to thank for his own break into the industry, and who has since been more successful on both urban and mainstream charts than Mo herself. Their first duet was “Can’t Let You Go“, the first single from Fabolous’ Street Dreams LP, was one of 2003′s biggest rap and mainstream pop hits. The other duet, “4 Ever”, the first official single from Lil’ Mo’s own second album, Meet The Girl Next Door, was a major urban and R&B hit, but did not achieve pop success.
 Syndicated: The Lil’ Mo Hour (2004 – 2005)
After her contract with Elektra expired at the end of 2004, she moved over to the Cash Money Records. Syndicated (The Lil’ Mo Hour) Was supposed to mark a new beginning in many ways for Lil’ Mo. It was her debut for the new joint venture between Cash Money Records, (headed by co C.E.O.’s Ronald “Slim” Williams and Bryan “Baby” Williams), and Roun’Table Entertainment. She released four minor singles. However, her third album Syndicated: The Lil’ Mo Hour never saw the light of day and her contract with Cash Money was broken in 2006.
 Pain & Paper (2007)
Under her independent label “Honeychild Entertainment” she has finally released a new album. Pain & Paper was released on August 28, 2007 with production from Joey Cutless, Bryan-Michael Cox, Jules “Judah,” Mike Moore, Troy Taylor, Adam “Streets” Arwine, Daniel “D-Up” Allen, Wesley “Mister Wes” Toone, among others. Along with recording her new album, Lil’ Mo, together with Faith Evans, Fantasia, and R&B-turned-gospel singer Coko (of SWV fame), appeared on the remake of The Clark Sisters‘ “Endow Me” from Coko’s gospel album Grateful, released October 31, 2006. Loving’s Pain & Paper was released on August 28, 2007 distributed by Koch Entertainment. The first single off the album is “Sometimes I” featuring rapper Jim Jones). The video was directed by Gabriel E. Hart of Drew Barrymore’s “VH-1′s Shoot to Kill.” She recently announced that her second single is “Lucky Her.” She stated that “Lucky Her” is the final single from “Pain & Paper”. She is currently working on a new album tentatively titled “Tattoos & Roses: The Rebellion Against My Pain” (confirmed by Lil’ Mo herself in an interview), a mixtape, and a reality show for 2008.
 2008 – END OF CAREER
With “Pain & Paper” sales at barely below one-hundred thousand, Lil’ Mo signed to Global Music Group for a two-album contract. She has said in a recent interview that the album will be a double disc; half of it being a live production. The album is currently titled “Tattoos & Roses: The Rebellion Against My Pain”. In a 2010 interview, Mo confirmed that guest appearances on the album would include MC Lyte, Tweet, Fabolous and other performers that she has admired in the music industry.
