SC attended Rocko's listening party this week and made our way into the room where we interviews were being conducted. We short bitches so we can fit into any place! Lol. We had the pleasure of meeting "Mr. Umma Do Me", he's a cool dude. Everyone knows Lafemme & E*Star are freaking crazy. So crazy that we took it as far as telling Rocko that he should've wore his leather bomber to that he wore on his album cover to the party, b/c he's POPPIN with the leather and the frames on. Rocko gave us a drop, he forgot the name b/c he had StreetCoSignor & Street Knowledge TV (waddup) in the room. But we still got the Drop! Owwwwwwwww!
Thank you for your time Rocko! SC loves you!
Once again Rocko's album titled "Self Made" drops March 18th!

Spencer began modeling in pageant competitions at the age of five then entered and won the CBS television talent show Star Search in 1987 as a little girl singing Whitney Houston's 1986 hit "How Will I Know".
Shortly afterwards, she became the youngest female artist to sign a record deal with a major label, Capitol Records, and to release a self-titled debut album. She found success with the singles "Hide and Seek", "Symptoms of True Love" and her remake of John Lennon's "Imagine". Her second album, Make the Difference, was released on August 27, 1990 .
The first single, "Save Your Love", showed an impressive standing at #7 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks chart. Her following single, "This House", became her biggest hit to date reaching #3 on the Billboard Hot 100. "Tender Kisses", one of her best known ballads, hit #1 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks and made her the youngest female artist to receive the ASCAP songwriter of the year award. The other singles, "This Time Make It Funky" and "Love Me", charted relatively well on The Billboard Hot 100 and the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks. Spencer attended Columbus High School in Waterloo, Iowa.
"This House" & "Still In My Heart" were the jams...But I think my favorite was "Tender Kisses". Tracie has mad joints out that niggas wasn't up on. I'm dedicating this Rewind That to Kasmo of Def Pen Radio because he's the only person I know that is really up on his song besides my homegirl Khalisha & Dee P. (I'm sure Sais is up on this too, but we never had a Tracie Spencer discussion.
"It comes as no surprise that Maxim has elected to apologize to their readers now that the world has been informed of their deception; however, that is not full accountability.
MJ recently received notice from Financial Title Company of the impending foreclosure of the multi-million dollar mega mansion. The singer reportedly owes $24,525,906.61 on the property and is requesting that Jackson pay the amount in full by the March 19 deadline. If he refuses or cannot come up with the money, the property will be auctioned off at an unknown date at the Santa Barbara County Courthouse. In addition to the house and land, the singer also stands to lose any and all of his possessions that are still on the property, including any and all furniture, appliances, artwork and outside fixtures like the entertainer's merry-go-round. Damn son, I feel bad if Mike loses that ranch. That shit is CARZY big! I ain't going to front, I always wanted to go to Neverland as I kid.
I know one thing, if the ranch gets sold, he better not be running around on that "I'm Peter Pan" bull. He'll be more like a high class Oliver Twist". Smh.
