Morgan Freeman Surgery Update

No Comments »

Just checking the 'Net, saw that Morgan Freeman has had surgery today, following the accident he was in on Sunday. People reports:

"Morgan is doing well after his surgery last night to reconnect nerves and repair damage in his left arm and hand," his spokesperson, Donna Lee, said in a statement Tuesday.

"The surgery last night lasted four and a half hours. He's visiting with family this morning. As of this morning he's up and walking around and looking forward to his release in a few days."

Mac Edwards, a consultant for Freeman's Ground Zero Blues Club, spoke with the actor's business partner in that venture on Tuesday.

The partner, who is visiting with Freeman in the hosital, reported, "Morgan is up and walking around. He's really sore, but he's doing better. He's hoping to be out of the hospital by Thursday."

What's going on with the passenger? Yesterday, we couldn't get any info on the passenger - who she was, her condition, anything. Why? I understand, there's a veil of anonymity some might want to have, but this is 2008, we already know everything except the color of the gown Freeman is wearing, but not a word on the passenger!?

Was Morgan tricking late night, possibly getting some road head, making him crash the whip? Someone hiding something? I hate being like this, but with the amount of coverage this story is getting, I'm surprised we don't know more...

Bonus Beats: My mom and her man were telling me about this movie All About Us, about two brothers trying to find Morgan Freeman in his town to pitch some movie shit to him. Sounded good...

Joe Budden "Touch & Go"

No Comments »

Joe Budden "Touch & Go": Check out the club-ready new single from Jump Off's Padded Room, which is set to drop on Amaglam on October 28th. I'm personally not big on this record, especially after the banger that is "Who" still getting regular spins on my MP3 player. I hope Padded Room has more of the "10 Minutes" Joey than this.

EDIT: Matt just hit me with the Padded Room tracklist:

1.) Now I Lay
2.) Touch N Go
3.) If I Gotta Go
4.) Blood On The Wall
5.) Don’t Make Me
6.) In My Sleep
7.) Outcast
8.) I Couldn’t Help It
9.) Do Tell
10.) My Life
11.) Better Me
12.) Just to Be Different
13.) Angel In My Life
14.) Pray For Me

Very interesting work here, you'd be a fool to sleep on this.

More Morgan Freeman Accident Details


Via Reuters:

Freeman, 71, was airlifted late on Sunday night to a Memphis, Tennessee, hospital, about 100 miles from the accident scene, which is near a home he keeps in Charleston, Mississippi.

"The vehicle went off the edge of the road and flipped several times," Mississippi Highway Patrol Sgt. Ben Williams said. No other car was involved in the accident.

From the direction Freeman was traveling, he appeared to be headed toward his home, Williams said.

Williams said it was "possible" that Freeman, who co-stars in the current blockbuster Batman movie the "Dark Knight," had fallen asleep at the wheel, but he added that authorities had ruled out alcohol as a factor in the wreck.

Freeman was conscious and talking to arriving officers afterward, Williams said, adding that no citation had been issued in the accident.

Via LA Times:

According to a source very close to the "Dark Knight" star, Morgan Freeman is "resting comfortably in the hospital and is on medication for the pain."

"He broke his shoulder and arm, but he's doing OK. He's already laughing and joking around with the nurses."

Thank God he's OK.

Morgan Freeman In Serious Car Accident

No Comments »

Word on the newswire is that Morgan Freeman, one of the dopest actors ever, and one of the lone elderstatesmen in Black Hollywood, has been involved in a serious car accident:

Academy Award winning actor Morgan Freeman was involved in a serious car accident Sunday night in north Mississippi.

Mississippi Highway Patrol spokesperson Ben Williams said Freeman and a female passenger were traveling eastbound on Mississippi Highway 32 in Tallahatchie County when his vehicle went off the edge of the road. Freeman overcorrected, flipping his 1997 Nissan Maxima several times before coming to a rest.

Emergency crews extracted Freeman and his passenger from their vehicle using the jaws of life. According to Williams, they were both airlifted to the Regional Medical Center in Memphis, where Freeman was listed in serious condition Monday morning.

The condition of Freeman's passenger has not been released.

OK first off, I wonder how bad off the passenger is if their condition hasn't been released. Also, how bad is Freeman? And what was he doing driving a '97 Nissan Maxima? What's really good with that?

3.) Respect My Walk (Produced by Buckwild)
4.) Hood Shit f/ Prodigy of Mobb Deep (Produced by The Alchemist)

Politics As Usual, September 30th.

Sugar Tongue Slim "Demand More Freestyle #3": After peepin' the first two freestyles STS has done, him and I ended up chatting a bit back and forth via e-mail, and I sent him a .rar with a batch of beats, both newer shit and some curveballs. I got an e-mail from him late Monday night with two freestyles in them. The official Demand More #3 freestyle is over Busta's amazing "Don't Touch Me" beat, causing STS to just go for broke on that throwback instrumental. Oh, and this marks the first time rock the dub has been namechecked in a freestyle! The second...

Bonus Beats: Sugar Tongue Slim "Next Levels Freestyle (RTD Exclusive)": an exclusive to the site, and over something you might not expect. Fans of MF Doom's King Geedorah moniker should know this beat ("Next Levels", from the Take Me To Your Leader disc), and STS shines bright over that jazzy piano. I'm guessing this is the first of the "On Demand" freestyles STS is doing!? Shouts out to him, regardless!

As another added bonus, STS sent a video...

Today is the 13th anniversary of the passing of my mother so I wanted to leak a track I recorded last year dedicated to the memory of her and my father (who passed on in september 98) it may be a little personal for a blog blast but hey, I hold nothing back. I'll get back to talking that shit next week.

If that ain't real talk, I don't know what is. For those in the New York area, Spec, Che Grand, 8th W1 and Fresh Daily will be holding it down at the Gallery Bar on Orchard Street, L.E.S. NYC (here's the flyer). Loosie.

Uncle Murdered? In response to Uncle Murder’s name change to ‘BK’ that was announced on Hot 97 on Friday, July 18, the ‘real’ Bekay has some words for Uncle Murder as he battles to claim his moniker. “You’re a liar, the streets is sick of your bars/ Uncle Murder?, more like Aunty M from the Wizard of Oz” -Bekay delivers back to back punch lines over classic Alchemist production

Can't wait to hear Murda's response. Why would he change his name to "BK" anyways? He trying to get a new single put on Urban radio?

Young Jeezy ft. Jay-Z "Put On (Remix)": Young Sav hit me with this last night (this morning?), but I didn't even check it until this morning. It's the dirty version, because you know I like my rhymes filthy. Nothing too stupendous about this, although I like Jay's effortless-ness. I finally checked that Jezzy interview in Vibe, and dude is talkin' that real shit. Being a father and all that, I feel for him. We'll see how The Recession plays out...
