Source Awards turns violent; ‘Highlanderi series continues

The Scoop

Keenan Singleton

 Isn't DMX lucky the 46 women he names on his hot single "What They Really Want?" all rhyme?

 Sorry, Rodney King, I guess we all can't get along.

 The second annual Source Hip-Hop Music Awards taping Tuesday was halted when several fights escalated to the boiling point and spilled onto the stage shortly after a performance by Mobb Deep and Lil' Kim.

 The show will go on, but without some of the evening's most anticipated acts -- namely Dr. Dre's performance with Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Kurupt and Nate Dogg along with Redman/Method Man's set.

 Appearances that will make the final cut are Wyclef's featuring The Rock on "It Doesn't Matter," New Orleans' finest -- the Cash Money Millionaires, the jigga-man Jay-Z as well as an interesting assemblage of Mos Def, Lil' Bow Wow, Tha Eastsidaz, Dead Prez and Made Men.

 The show will air as scheduled at 7 p.m. Tuesday on UPN.
 I'm a big supporter of UH, so I forced myself to purchase a copy of this month's Playboy magazine, the girls of Conference USA.

 In case you didn't know, UH is a member of C-USA, and I was pleased at what our girls had to offer. We only had two pictures (six girls), but our girls were head-and-shoulders better than the homely girls of Southern Miss, Cincinnati, DePaul and the rest. Go Coogs!

 This week's top album releases are about as coveted as gum on the bottom of your shoe.

 Cheap Trick -- The Authorized Greatest Hits
 Amil -- All Money is Legal
 The Scorpions -- Moment of Glory
 Take 5 -- Against All Odds
 2gether -- 2gether Again

 Still recovering from the summer blockbuster season, Hollywood brings two surefire bombs to the screen this week.

 The first, Highlander: Endgame is the third sequel to the classic '80s film, Highlander, which is about the immortal Scot, Connor McLeod, whose only pathway to death is being decapitated.

 In this installment, Connor is partnered with Duncan McLeod, fellow Highlander and clansman, in what will hopefully be the final part of this tired series.
 Rated R for "another example of beating someone to death."

 The other stinker, Whipped, stars Amanda Peet as the object of three college buddiesi affections.

 The three guys, who have trampled on women's hearts all their lives, jockey for Peet's heart. This film should last in theaters about the same amount of time it takes to brush your teeth. Rated R for "Am I the only person who thinks Amanda Peet looks like Mr. Ed's second cousin?"

Rock on!
 The live music scene will be dominated by rock acts this week. Check out these acts as they bring their shows to these local venues.

 Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion: The Who with Unamerican -- Aug. 29, 8 p.m.; Iron Maiden with Queensryche and Halford --Sept. 27.

 Aerial Theater: Acura Music Festival featuring John Fogerty, Aaron Neville and Dr. John -- Sept. 3, 8 p.m.
