Raekwon
Singer Cee Lo Green is set to show off his acting skills by playing the father of rapper Raekwon in the hip-hop star's biopic.

The Wu-Tang Clan star recently penned his memoirs, and is planning on turning them into a big screen project, which will detail his early life in New York up to his rise to fame.

Green will play his dad in the movie, entitled C.R.E.A.M., and Raekwon has promised a whole set of stars will make up the film's cast.

RZA Threatens To Sue The Game

RZA
Wu-Tang Clan rapper RZA has threatened legal action against The Game in a dispute over a song.

Lawyers representing RZA - real name Robert Diggs - have sent a cease-and-desist letter to the star over a track called Heartbreaker, which RZA produced for The Game's R.E.D album.

The pair was unable to gain permission to use a sample featured in the song and it was removed from the record, although The Game is said to have included it on his Purp & Patron mix tape - which has apparently angered RZA.

The Game tells Hiphopdx.com, "I think RZA (is) tryin' to sue about (Heartbreaker) or somethi...

Rapper Kanye West has followed through on his promise to work with Justin Bieber - teaming up with Raekwon to remix one of the teenager's songs.

Ghostface Killah
"When you get a new Ghostface Killah album, the only reasonable reaction is to get lost in it," said the New York Times of Ghost's last full studio album, '06's instant classic Fishscale. And with the December '06 release of More Fish and Ghost's near-constant touring in '07, his legions of fans have been happily lost in the 'World According To Pretty Toney.' Now, with a new Def Jam album - The Big Doe Rehab - set for release on December 4th, his current tour with Rakim, and a coffee-table book set for release on January 8th through MTV Press, the devoted will be positively delirious.

While many of his pioneering peers from that golden era haven't since gracefully bowed out of the game, Joe has constantly found ways to evolve over the years as not only one of the premier MCs in rap, but as an astute businessman with an ear for finding and cultivating talent such as fellow legend Big Pun, female fire starter Remy Ma and R&B crooner Tony Sunshine. Joe's business savvy has surpassed working only in music as he has also secu...
