Music News
by Salvador Gabor

Today, Boozoo Chavis releases his newest album "Who Stole My Monkey", the long awaited follow-up album to his 1985 smash hit "Squash, Neckbones and Liver Pudding". This album seems to be angled to more of a modern crowd. His first single of the album, "Church Socks and Sandles" ponders upon many fashion questions that he poses to his grandkids about his outdated attire. These questions are often answered by his grandkids, 2 of who make appearances on the album. "Lil Nita" and "Charlie Jr." have a duet on the album titled "Can I wear yo' false teeth granddaddy?" and "Charlie Jr." also raps on the remix to the 1985 hit "Assault with a deadly hogmaw" which is a conscience song about health in the Afro-American community.

On a scale of 1-10, I rate this album at a 6. Only a 6 because his the album has no edits. At the end of the songs, Boozoo can be heard motioning to the studio worker to "cut that song of dere". Also he only gets a 6 because his music videos can only be viewed on Sundays at 11:00 right after Bobby Jones Gospel Hour.

Also Boozoo will be going on tour soon. The "Hard Porkrhine Life" tour is coming to a barnyard near you. All of the tour dates have not been released. An official press conference will be held at "Chuck & Billy's" On Georgia Ave. and Fairmont Street in Washington D.C. on February 1,2004. Also for Beta-Max versions of his album "Who Stole My Monkey: Live from Tugaloo, MS" call Mr. Archie Daniels at 601-768-7766.

And now I present.........

The root of our problems dont need to be dug with a shovel, just a simple
spoon. sugar and salt can be lifted by the teaspoon. Hypertension and
Diabetes are prevalent amongst black people all resulting to those two
things which are white, sugar and salt. Knowing this, fixate your mind
with these trinkets if you will.

Fill your mind with a Black Panther pamphlet. Newtons Readings Volumes 6-10
are very helpful with workplace Sodium.

Dont get even with your enemies, it will happen on its on, but a foot in the
isle at lunchtime, should suffice.
