Thriving Thursday. It's a running start to the Friday Finish line with Ciara as the grand prize and 50 Cent/Dwight Howard running. If there was ever a theory that the customer is always right, Joe Budden appears to not care especially in relation to the new Slaughterhouse album. What could be better for the city of Chicago than new music from homegrown products Kanye West and R. Kelly? All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. Big Ballin' Is My Hobby

Who would have thought Ciara could have two of the biggest stars in music and professional basketball hunting her down? It wasn't too long ago that she got accused of stalking 50 Cent and apparently denied Dwight Howard romance rumors. Media Take Out has the inside scoop on the latest Ciara craze:


September 13, 2012: was the FIRST news source to tell you that NBA superstar Dwight Howard and R&B singer Ciara had gone on a few dates - and were considered to be one of the HOTTEST COUPLES in L.A. Well according to's snitch, as soon as 50 learned that CiCi was seeing Dwight - he started PURSUING HER AGAIN. And it looks like it's working. Cause two days ago a fan saw Ciara driving down the street in 50 CENT'S blue Lamborghini. You know . . . the one that he REPOSSESSED from her when the two broke up. (Media Take Out)

Could Ciara be having the best of two worlds? Is there anything wrong with Ciara enjoying the life as a single lady who casually dates? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

2. U Mad?

Turns out the Slaughterhouse fans weren't too happy with the new Welcome to: Our House LP and let the most Internet savvy member Joe Budden get an opportunity to react. Less than two weeks after the LP pushed out decent first-week sales, it seems like Budden had to let loose. All Hip Hop Rumors has the inside:

Damn Joe. You went and did a Fantasia. A lot of people are not feeling the new SlaughterHouse CD, from what I have gathered. Now, AllHipHop gave it a cool 8/10, but it seems a lot of fans have a different opinion. Well, somebody asked the crew about it and Joe Budden went in - ON THE FANS. Wow. Whoa. Blank stare. I guess they peed in his Wheaties. Personally, I blame Eminem! (All Hip Hop Rumors)

Does Joe Budden have a right to feel the way he does? If anything, isn't this what any Slaughterhouse fan would want, honesty? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

3. Windy City

The summer is coming to an end but there's still a bit of violence throughout the world, especially in Chicago. Just a week after teenager Lil JoJo lost his life to gun violence, a new record with Kanye West and R. Kelly is out and breathes new life. Necole Bitchie has the scoop on this track:

It looks like all of the folks that were screaming 'YOLO' may have a new anthem. With less than a week until its release date, G.O.O.D Music's compilation album 'Cruel Summer' has finally sprung a leak. The LP's opening track made its way onto the web last night, and it is a collabo between Kanye West and R. Kelly. Chi-Town stand up! Years ago, R. Kelly gave us a taste of what a collaboration from the two artists would sound like when he hopped on the remix of 'Flashing Lights', however this song is giving a similar vibe to The Throne's track "Lift Off" featuring Beyonce. Instead of taking off to the moon, R. Kelly is encouraging folks to have an 'I don't give a f-ck' attitude while flipping the bird to the world. Even though her name isn't listed, Teyana Taylor makes an appearance towards the end of the song, while giving a husky reinterpretation of the chorus. (Necole Bitchie)

It feels like forever since we last heard R. Kelly laying down some tunes, especially given that neck problem he had last year. Is this a certified banger, something needed for Chi-Town? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

That about wraps it up for today. This is SOHH On The Spot giving you the morning scoop from your favorite gossip blogs.
