Kanye West's New Album "Good Ass Job" This December? Maybe? Possibly? Hopefully!

Coming off of the success of the Graduation album and the AMAZING Glow in the Dark Tour Mr. West is rumored to be releasing his next masterpiece cleverly (rumored to be) titled Good Ass Job (because what else could come after Graduation) in December 2008.

During the 2008 VMA's Yeezy closed the show debuting his single "Love Lock Down". We're totally hoping the album drops this year....that takes care of our gifting lists for the Holidays.

If Viacom quits hating, we'll post the YouTube video for you to check out.

Cool Kids ... Even Cooler - Mikey Rocks & Chuck Inglish

A couple members of the ChicaGoGetter crew had a chance to chill with Mikey Rocks and Chuck Inglish better known as The Cool Kids at a recent private MySpace event at Chicago's CastAways. We loved these dudes before but love them even more because they were so down to earth and represented the Go very well.

Friday Music Mix - Over 1200 Tracks Enjoy!

new & old music a lil bit of everything

This is definitely a borrowed list. But it has a mix of songs that I would playfully describe as both ignorance and bliss. There's something for everyone on this. I especially rolled on the floor for a few minutes after hearing the track cleverly named "The Forest Gump". Big thanks to Brianna Norfleet for creating the list.

Happy Friday and XOXO,
RD, ChicaGoGetter

Diddy on John McCain and Sarah Palin

Thoughts from one of the most opinionated men in entertainment. I had to laugh out loud but agree with some of the comments. The man has a right to his opinion on John McCain's recent controversial decision to "hire" the Governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin, as his running mate. Please excuse Diddy's gratuitous dropping of the "F" bomb and check out Palin's RNC speech tonight to craft your own opinion on the this lady.
