Default Bloomberg & Ice-T, Ludacris, New Wyclef LP, Florida Entertainment Summit





New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg teamed with rapper Ice-T yesterday (Oct. 4) in New York to shoot a promotional spot for VH1's upcoming Hip Hop Honors award show, which pays tribute to pioneers in the genre of Hip-Hop. Mayor Bloomberg will appear in the opening of the show, which is set to air Oct. 17 on VH1. The shoot was directed by Fab 5 Freddy, who is also the co-executive producer of the Hip Hop Honors tribute. This yearís honorees include the Wu-Tang Clan, Afrika Bambaataa, Russell Simmons, MC Lyte, Rakim, Beastie Boys and Eazy-E. While Ice-T serves as host of this year's Hip Hop Honors tribute, the rapper will star in a reality series of his own titled Rap School, which also premieres Oct. 17 on VH1.

Ludacris continues to expand his acting resume and has signed on to star in the movie Fred Claus. The movie stars actor Vince Vaughn as Santa Claus' bitter brother, who is forced to move to the North Pole. Filming is slated to start this fall in London. Ludacris will be featured as an angry elf in the flick, which also stars Kevin Spacey, Elizabeth Banks and Paul Giamatti, who will play the role of Santa Claus. The movie is directed by David Dobkin, who directed Vaughn in the 2005 hit Wedding Crashers. Ludacris' latest album Release Therapy is currently No. 1 on Billboard's Top 200 chart.

Wylcef Jean is working on his new album, which will be titled Carnival 2. The album is the sequel to his hit debut solo effort, Carnival, which arrived in stores in 1997. Carnival contained the hit singles "Guantanamera," "Gone Till November" and "We Trying To Stay Alive." Jean is writing the musical arrangements for Carnival 2, which is almost complete. No release date was available for Carnival 2.
