JAY-Z TO MARK 9/11 RELEASE DATE WITH CHARITY SHOW
Hip-hop mogul JAY-Z has confirmed his upcoming album will be released on 11 September and he plans to honour the memory of the victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks with a charity gig.
The rapper’s original The Blueprint record was released on 11 September 2001 the same day nearly 3,000 people were killed in the atrocities in the Big Apple.
The attacks overshadowed the CD’s release and the Big Pimpin’ hitmaker admits he has purposely chose the same day to release his latest offering, The Blueprint 3, to mark the “horrible” events which devastated his hometown that fateful day.
Jay-Z is lining up his celebrity pals to put on a star-studded concert to raise money for victims of 9/11.
He says, “It’s the date the first one came out and it was a horrible date in our history. I have a wonderful idea for a show, proceeds are gonna go to charity. You know, just bring it full circle. I have a historic venue in mind, I’m gonna bring some artists out. It’s gonna be big.”
Word on the grape vine is that Jay-Z is trying to hold the show at the 9/11 site……

This is a serious case of ”When your friends don’t know their place”.
Kym Whitley and Tamala Jones were down in Miami for Pleasure P.’s album release party.
Apparently Tamala made Kym miss her flight to L.A., so Kym decided the best course of action was to pimp slap her to say thank you!

“Big Trouble In Little China”
New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin is in quarantine in China as a precautionary measure after it was found that someone he was sitting near to on a plane was showing symptoms of the H1N1-flu virus, also known as swine flu.
The announcement came in a press conference on Sunday. Nagin is currently in a designated quarantine location in Shanghai, and he remains symptom free. Nagin, however, hasn’t been tested for the virus, according to Nagin administration spokeswoman Nagin administration spokeswoman Ceeon D. Quiett.
Nagin’s wife and one member of his executive protection unit were also quarantined, Quiett said.
Quiett said Nagin is being treated with the “utmost courtesy by Chinese officials.”
