Soulful Blog: Miss Jones Tsunami'd By Hot 97, JC Swagger Jacking Lloyd? R. Kelly "A Milli" Freestyle

Hot 97 morning show hostess Miss Jones has been given the boot. Known for chastising some of your fave r&b stars like Keyshia Cole and Danity Kane, and more infamous for her culturally insensitive remarks (“Tsunami” song anyone?) the popular New York station has finally opted to cut the washed-up singer from their roster. From what I hear Big Boy will be making the leap from LA’s Power 106 to take over the reins from Jonesy.

If you’re into old school R&B you probably remember her work. [Peep This]

I got the following video via email today and I’m glad I did because I love this song but I thought it was Lloyd singing until I got the video.

JC ft. Gorilla Zoe “Nobody Gotta Know”

Anybody else think homie sounds like Lloyd? On another note, it’s good to see folks getting creative with the videos again. The notes on this one say it’s themed after the newest Bond Casino Royale film. What do you think about this one?

Frequent Soulful contributor DJ Parler is spinning tonight in NYC alongside DJ’s Stimulus, mOma, Dhundee & Take5ive at 105 Rivington on the Lower East Side. No cover, entry at doorman’s discretion.

Naptown you should be happy to hear the latest “A Millie” remix – courtesy of Chi-Town’s favorite urinator. If you’d like to hear it, here it goes:

That’s it for me today – what do you think about Miss Jones getting pink slipped? JC’s video? The King of R&B’s “A Millie”? Talk to me y’all!

I say a definite big ups to sohh.com for coming back after everything. I know its gonna b bigger and badder than b4.

Why get rid of Miss Jones now? Who knows...either way, she'll be back on another station (if not syndicated) in no time. Hell, if Imus and Dog the Bounty Hunter can do it, so can Miss Jones.

Iinally, I don't think ol' dude sounds much like Lloyd even though he does favor him a bit, but I must say that in my opinion Kelly's "A Milli" freestyle is surely the weakest of them all. Personally, I thought Chris Brown and Ne-yo's little grade school spat over Bangledesh's beat was much better. Also...please tell me ya'll heard him with they "love girls" throughout the 16. i mean, really, we know you got off on one Kells---just let it be.

Soulful: Glad to see Sohh.com is gettin it all back together. Best of luck!!

Just saw these links, and I hate to say it, but even I'm not high on the Kellz "A Millie" freestyle. Maybe it's because I didn't like the track much to begin with, but in the past the King (thanks for showin the proper respect in your post lol!) brought heat even on tracks I thought were originally weak (Ciara's "Promise," Swizz Beatz' "It's Me...," and Raheem Devaughn's "Customer" to name a few. He just doesn't do it here, and I'll agree it's a bust.

Still though, "12 Play 4th Quarter comin real soon!!"

Man Kellz was straight garbage on that remix. Chris Brown and Ne-yo version sounded better than that.
