- It'll take quite a summer blockbuster tour to top the star wattage that will hit Verizon Center on April 3. That's when Lil Wayne brings the "I Am Music II" tour to town, and he'll have some headliner-worthy openers in Nicki Minaj and Rick Ross. Wow.

- Maybe following Dana Milbank's lead we should make it a no-Kanye West February? Or not. When the guy who just released an instant-classic, top-of-every-list album announces he has another one coming this summer, it must be noted. He announced it all on Twitter, of course.

- When popular rap Web site WorldStarHipHop.com briefly went down on Monday, some thought it was taken offline buy Homeland Security. But apparently someone else is to blame -- 50 Cent.

- Christina Aguilera will sing the National Anthem at the Super Bowl on Feb. 6. As you already know, Black Eyed Peas are the halftime entertainment.
