Diddy’s Bad Boy Reunion, Superhead Exposes Lil Wayne, Best Top 10 LPs of ’13 Lists?
Working Wednesday. We’re putting in work to get the day started, so why not get things rolling with Day 26 reuniting? A couple of entertainers that aren’t reuniting are Karrine Steffans and Lil Wayne and in fact, it looks like they’re at each other’s necks? There have been great moments this year, but the best Top 10 albums lists of 2013? All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. Take That, Take That Back
Is Diddy going to reunite with all of his former Bad Boy Records artists? Not likely but that’s not going to stop Day 26 from hooking back up for at least one more run together. TMZ has the details:
Day 26 — the boy band masterminded by Sean “Diddy” Combs on MTV’s “Making the Band 4″ — IS TOTALLY REUNITING FOR A NEW TOUR … TMZ has learned. A rep for Day 26 tells us … the band, which was handpicked by Diddy on the 2007 show, is planning a 30-city tour starting in the Spring of 2014 … and it’s gonna include ALL of the original members. Back in the day, D26 produced 2 albums before trouble began. Qwanell “Que” Mosley was kicked out of the group in 2009 because of disagreements with management. The whole band broke up in the summer of 2012 … and there’ve been rumors of a reunion ever since. It wasn’t until Que climbed on board that it became a reality. As for Diddy … we’re told he’s NOT part of the resurrected band … but he’s already given the boys his blessing. (TMZ)
Why wouldn’t Diddy want to make some bank off of this reunion? He’s been trying to get The LOX together on his label, wouldn’t Day 26 draw some attention? Even better, will Revolt TV play Day 26’s music if Diddy’s not involved in their reunion? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
2. Head Check
What’s the story with Karrine “Superhead” Steffans? Isn’t she messing with Bow Wow? It turns out she and Lil Wayne had a thing in the past and even though some time has past by, Karrine has made it appear like there is something still there. Or at least there was. XXL Mag has the proof:
It’s no secret that Lil Wayne and Karrine Steffans have maintained a very public on-again-off-again relationship over the years. However, after all this time Karrine now claims she’s done with the rapper and even Instagrammed a few intimate pics to prove it.
Posting several screen shots of a conversation between her and Lil Wayne, Karrine appeared fed up with Wayne’s antics. Blaming the break on Weezy being seen with a “mediocre nobody,” Karrine says “[she's] got to do better” and that things can resume between the two when several changes are made. (XXL Mag)
In all fairness, isn’t Karrine too old and mature to be resorting to these tactics? Exposing rappers with screenshots? Could this be true or just a publicity stunt and plea for attention? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

You have to wonder, if Kanye West’s album landed as one of the best albums of the year, why didn’t it receive a vote for “Album of the Year” for the Grammy Awards? Could there be a conspiracy going on if some of the most well-known music publications have it listed as either the number one or Top 5 best? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
