DJ Green Lantern Finds "Home" With Russell Simmons

DJ Green Lantern has found a new recording home with Russell Simmons Music Group after unceremoniously exiting Eminem’s Shady Records earlier this year.

RSMG president Tony Austin said that Green Lantern’s background and ability spoke volumes to the burgeoning company.

“We signed Green Lantern because he's a prominent figure in the Hip-Hip community,� Austin told AllHipHop.com. “He understands the culture and what it represents. He has produced for some of the biggest name artists in Hip-Hip. He'll be influential in helping shape and mode new talent at RSMG along with building his own brand and becoming a household name around the globe.�

To date, Green Lantern has crafted hits for the likes of Ludacris, The Lox’s D-Block, Immortal Technique, Akon, Jadakiss and others like Noreaga. DJ Green Lantern announced his departure from Shady Records in April after DJing for Eminem since 2001. He departed Shady after a phone conversation with rapper Jadakiss was recorded for a street DVD without his knowledge. The New York native made an opinionated comment about 50 Cent and Jadakiss’ rap beef at the time, which appeared to cause tension between the Shady/G-Unit camp.

Florida School System Bans 'Frowning Snowman' T-Shirt

Atlanta, Georgia rapper Young Jeezy’s frowning snowman logo on a t-shirt has caused a stir in the United States and now the shirt has been banned from the Polk County, Florida Public School system.

Superintendent Gail McKinzie alerted principals in the school system last week about the t-shirt, which features a frowning snowman, usually followed by various references to cocaine.

McKinzie and Assistant Superintendent Bruce Tonjes became aware of the shirts after they started popping up on various campuses.

“We understood that ‘snow’ is a reference to cocaine,� Assistant Superintendent Bruce Tonjes told AllHipHop.com. “If that’s what people understand the meaning of this to be, that doesn’t mean the person wearing it understands. If that’s the message it sends, we take the necessary measures to remove it from our campuses.�

Clothing that promotes drugs, alcohol or sex is banned under Polk County School Board policy.

On first offense, students will be told to turn the shirt inside-out or change shirts.

MTV's Mixtape Monday 11-21-05

DJ: Kay Slay

Representing: Harlem, New York

Mixtapes: Celebrity Status 4 and Grafh Classic

411: DJ Kay Slay has teamed up with two of hip-hop's brightest prospects: Grafh and Chamillionaire (the host and featured guest on Celebrity Status 4). While the mixtape from Grafh (a joint effort with Slay and Clinton Sparks) focuses mainly on him, Celebrity Status features all the big heads, including Biggie, Jay-Z, Mobb Deep, 50 Cent and the Diplomats.

So when can you hear albums from these spitters? Chamillionaire's official debut, The Sound of Revenge, comes out on November 22, and Grafh, who is inked to Queens, New York-based (and Dame Dash-affiliated) Black Hand Entertainment, has an LP slated for early next year.

Let's take a look behind the mixtapes:

Joints to Check For:

* "Rain" (featuring Scarface) and "Picture Perfect" (featuring Bun B), both from Celebrity Status 4. "Both of these records are on my album as well," Chamillionaire noted. "I hit Scarface on the cell and told him that I would be honored if he would feature on my album. He came to the studio on short notice and laid the verse down. The song is special to me because, not only is Scarface a living legend, but the song has a lot of depth and a sincere meaning behind it. I came up in the world of mixtape freestyles, and most of the songs in that world don't have purpose or real substance. With all the real-life situations like Hurricane Katrina happening nowadays, a song like 'Rain' is a message to keep your head up, because the sunlight always comes after the rain."
