    I’m sure all you rabid Stanley Burrell fans have known about/been discussing the news in chat rooms for weeks at this point but Carney sent me a “high-priority” e-mail this morning outlining the reasons—too embarrassing, for him, to mention—why it bears repeating so here and now: MC Hammer is launching, a new site MCH […]

    Backstreet Boys reunion tour coming to NYC!

    The Backstreet Boys are coming to NYC, performing live at the Supreme Court of New York County. The still-wishing-they-were-pubescent outfit claims boy band impresario Lou Pearlman and Trans Continental Records (TCR) still owe around $4mm to cover subsequent career mistakes of individual group members.

    More Investment Rapping.
