Okay, now this is getting kinda wet & gushy...

The collaboration track between U2 and Green Day, a cover of the Skids' "The Saints Are Coming," is not only being recorded at the Beatles' legendary Abbey Road Studios as a single to benefit Music Rising, and making its debut during a live pre-game concert at the opening Louisiana Superdome when the New Orleans Saints play the Atlanta Falcons on Monday, but now the two bands have recreated the Abbey Road cover as the artwork for that very single!

Geeeez, who do you guys think you are? The Beatles or something?

Now, I'm all for this whole project and it's certainly for a good cause, but allow me to vent...

No, just kidding. It's really great they are doing this, here's some more info.

Bald-headed, headbangin' early ?90s rap group Onyx are being rebirth as Yung Onyx. The new version of the group features rowdy teenage rappers instead of the founding members (who are now in their 30s...ancient in rap years) yet keeps the brand name.

"There's no more groups in the game now who bring that raw street s**t," original member Fredro Starr told Allhiphop.com of the young rappers, one of which is the son of Onyx's Big Kie. "They don't rap about jewelry and cars...they rap about the block."

The group is being launched by Starr, who sees them as sharing the "same rough edge, [but] with their own contemporary spin." Yung Onyx features MCs Khaos, 18, Khaos' cousin Skitso, 19, M.I., 16, and R&B singer Primo Starr, 19.

Wait...an R&B singer??The Onyx didn't have no R&B singer! They screamed their hooks like guys who were about to burn your friggin' house down!!!

Aerosmith have yet another great hits collection on the way, this one titled Devil's Got a New Disguise.

The compilation is really just a "pared down" single-disc version of 2002's double-disc set O, Yeah! Ultimate Aerosmith Hits, which featured single mixes of 14 hits from the band's Columbia and Geffen catalogue. But it does?feature two new songs,"Sedona Sunrise," and the title track.

Devil's Got a New Disguise is due out on October 17 via Columbia. The band is currently on the road with Motley Crue on the Route of All Evil tour.

Hmmmm...

I love old Aerosmith, but I sure couldn't care less about this. They seem to care more about milking those old songs more than they do about writing any decent new ones these days, huh?

Kelly, Stevie Wonder, Nate Dogg, Ne-Yo, The Game and Ice Cube, and production from heavyweights Neptunes, Timbaland and Rick Rock. But the pairing that has everyone the most excited is the Snooper's reunion with longtime mentor Dr. Dre, who discovered Snoop in the early ?90s and produced his landmark album Doggystyle.

A Blue Carpet song called "Imagine" finds the two icons rapping about hypothetical situations like life without hiphop, and what if Tupac never got killed. The song is the duo's first joint together in about five years.

Lotus will be introducing three new cars over the next half decade: the new Esprit will be out by December 2009, a Lotus/Proton high-performance car is due in December, and a a new midrange machine whose details have yet to be announced.

And since Europeans can currently only score themselves a Lotus Elise, Exige, or Europa S (North America don't get no Europa), these new cars will indeed accomplish that.

Former publishers of "hip hop bible" The Source Magazine, David Mays and Ray "Benzino" Scott (right), have announced their new effort will be called Hip Hop Weekly, and not The Truth, as previously announced.

Hip Hop Weekly will hit newsstands on nationwide on Oct. 16 and will be, you guessed it, a weekly publication. Go figure.

The new magazine finds Mays and Scott getting back into the publishing arena after being thrown out of The Source by corporate board members in January 2006. Why? Well, allegedly because they were jerks, everyone hated them, and Benzino used the mag to push his fledgling rap career.

How much did they hate Benzino over at The Source? So much so that the issue after he got axed features a banner on the cover that read, "100% Benzino? Free"! LOL.

Anyways, I digress...
