fame kills
The highly talked about Fame Kills tour with headliners Kanye West and Lady Gaga has officially been cancelled. The two planned on doing a 30+ tour that was scheduled to begin next month and end in January. Rumors began to circulate about a tour cancellation after Kanye’s rant against Taylor Swift not deserving her award at the last MTV VMA’s. There is no reason as to why it’s been cancelled, but details are still developing. To confirm the cancellation, here is a tweet fresh from LiveNation’s Twitter making it official:
Maybe this cancellation will give Kanye the “time off” he said he will take when he appeared on the Jay Leno show (Kanye shrug).

MTV’s Hottest MC In The Game: #7 – Young Jeezy

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Why He’s Hot: Young Jeezy may not yet have a mainstream, marquee name like some of his platinum peers, but the Snowman is an undeniable rap goliath. In hip-hop, his moniker holds just as much weight as the other big dogs. How else could he bring out Kanye West and Usher during the big Birthday Bash concert in his hometown of Atlanta last summer, and then turn around in 2009 and usher out surprise guests Mary J. Blige and Lil Wayne? And by the way, when Jay-Z decided to perform his earthshaking “D.O.A. (Death of Auto-Tune)” in concert for the first time anywhere on the globe, he came out during Jeezy’s set at the “Summer Jam” show in New Jersey. And he followed that with a prominent slot on Lil Wayne’s “America’s Most Wanted” tour last summer, which ran for six weeks and was one of the most successful tours of the year thus far.
