Kenny Loggins Ripped “What A Fool Believes”…

Damn, all I ever really knew him for was the “Top Gun” theme song and “Footloose”

He ripped the Doobie Brothers, “What A Fool Believes” (yea, I know he helped co-write it). But shit, I almost wish this were the original version.

I thought it was Jon B for second.

On the strength of this, I almost want to go pick-up one of his albums and see what he was really all about. – Heist

In the early part of this decade, when people still cared about Harlem’s the Diplomats, Jim Jones was known as the crew’s capo, the cartoony second-in-command to Cam’ron. But in 2006 Jones shifted to the spotlight with his hit single “We Fly High, then, to the surprise of most people familiar with his music, managed to parlay the modest success into a jump from independent Koch Records to a 50-50 deal with Columbia. Which makes sense given the support of Damon Dash, who’s been as active a partner in the “Jim Jones for Superstar” movement as Jones himself — together, they’ve worked on a documentary, a coffee-book travelogue, a workout DVD, and … a play! Before tonight’s closing performance of the Hip Hop Monologues, a slightly ill-advised (we saw it) stage adaptation of Jones’s life story, Vulture spoke with both Jim and Dame to figure out just what, exactly, they were thinking.

Could you see that Dipset was falling apart, that Cam’ron wasn’t going to maintain his place in the industry?
Jones: I just know there were a lot of things going on. You find out who really wants to be around one another once money comes into play. See, for a minute, it was one-sided. He was the breadwinner, obviously. For the most part, I was just trying to stay above water, because I wasn’t in the streets hustling anymore. I finally figured out what I needed to do to get enough money to control my own destiny in the industry. [But] we were like brothers. That was a hard blow. They see [Cam] in Harlem all the time and stuff like that. I don’t think he’s hiding underneath a cave or anything like that. But the communication between us doesn’t exist. (more…)

One of the music executives who helped make Atlanta the Motown of the South died this weekend of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, Cobb County police said.

Shakir Stewart, the 34-year-old executive vice president of Def Jam Recordings, was found about 4 p.m. Saturday in the bathroom of his house on Lindsey Drive in Marietta, said police spokeswoman Cassie Reece. Reese said Stewart shot himself with a handgun but wouldn’t say who discovered him. Stewart was prounounced dead at Kennestone Hospital.

Stewart ran the day-to-day operations of Def Jam, the best-known hip-hop label in the country. He was named executive vice president about five months ago, succeeding rap superstar Jay-Z.

Christopher Hicks, a friend of 18 years and fellow music executive, last spoke with Stewart about a week ago.

“Whatever happened over the past 24 hours is not a testament to who we all know,” Hicks said Sunday. “He was a one-of-a-kind individual. If you looked on his Blackberry [stamp] it said ‘One of one.’

“I mean, Shakir is the kind of guy who would get dressed up for a party none of us were invited to,” Hicks continued. “He had no doubt he was getting in. He was a ‘Where there’s a will, there’s a way’ kind of guy. Always.” (more…)
