LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) -- A fast-moving wildfire with "a mind of its own" had nearly doubled in size and threatened 10,000 homes in Southern California on Monday
The Station fire had grown to 85,760 acres by Monday afternoon, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection's Web site. The blaze, which was only 5 percent contained, was being fueled by dry air and protected by the steep terrain in and around the Angeles National Forest.
"The fire essentially can get up and run any time and has a mind of its own," U.S. Forest Service Incident Commander Mike Dietrich said on CNN's "American Morning" early Monday.
Fire officials said Monday that they had ordered mandatory evacuations for residents of the 10,000 homes under threat. Nearly 100 homes were added to the mandatory evacuations Monday afternoon.

Racist Faces of Hate
(CNN) -- Authorities have charged two teenagers and an adult in connection with the beating of a 76-year-old African-American man early Tuesday in Baltimore, Maryland, in an incident police say had a racial connection.
Emmanuel Miller, 16, and Zachary Watson, 17 are charged as adults, police said. They and Calvin Lockner, 28, face numerous charges in the alleged beating of James Privott, including attempted murder, assault and harassing a person because of race or religion, according to court documents.
Lockner is a white supremacist with the nickname "Hitler," Baltimore police spokesman Anthony Gugliemi told CNN.
Baltimore Police Commissioner Fred Bealefeld told reporters some of Lockner's tattoos seem to indicate his affiliation with racist groups such as the Aryan Brotherhood, according to audio comments posted on the Web site of CNN affiliate WBAL.
There is no evidence the teenagers were affiliated with any white supremacist groups, Gugliemi said, but the two knew Lockner.
Police responding to a report of an armed carjacking about 3:25 a.m. Tuesday found Privott with a head injury, according to probable cause statements accompanying charges, filed in the District Court of Maryland for Baltimore City.
Privott told police he was loading his Chevy Tahoe after fishing in the nearby Patapsco River when three or four white males approached him and began to kick and punch him, knocking him to the ground while using racial epithets, according to the statements.
BERLIN (AP)—Facing questions about her gender, South African teenager Caster Semenya easily won the 800-meter gold medal Wednesday at the world championships.
Her dominating run came on the same day track and field’s ruling body said she was undergoing a gender test because of concerns she does not meet requirements to compete as a woman.
Semenya took the lead at the halfway mark and opened a commanding lead in the last 400 meters to win by a massive 2.45 seconds in a world-leading 1 minute, 55.45 seconds. Defending champion Janeth Jepkosgei was second and Jennifer Meadows of Britain was third in 1:57.93.
After crossing the line, Semenya dusted her shoulders with her hands. Semenya did not speak to reporters after the race or attend a news conference.
About three weeks ago, the international federation asked South African track and field authorities to conduct the verification test. Semenya had burst onto the scene by posting a world-leading time of 1:56.72 at the African junior championships in Maruitius.
Her dramatic improvement in times, muscular build and deep voice sparked speculation about her gender. Ideally, any dispute surrounding an athlete is dealt with before a major competition. But Semenya’s stunning rise from unknown teenage runner to the favorite in the 800 happened almost overnight. That meant the gender test—which takes several weeks—could not be completed in time.
Before the race, IAAF spokesman Nick Davies stressed this is a “medical issue, not an issue of cheating.” He said the “extremely complex” testing has begun. The process requires a physical medical evaluation and includes reports from a gynecologist, endocrinologist, psychologist, internal medicine specialist and gender expert.
Today its the day to expand your mind , and enjoy the sounds of J.Period and K'Naan collaboration.
J.Period & K'NAAN present a 3-song sneak preview of their forthcoming mixtape project “The Messengers,” a tribute to FelaKuti, Bob Marley & Bob Dylan, scheduled for release in 3 parts, starting September 1.
And for those that that know here is some history on the kid K'Naan
Born in Mogadishu, Somalia, K'naan spent his childhood in the district of Wardhiigleey ("The River of Blood") and lived there during the Somali Civil War, which began in 1991. His aunt, Magool, was one of Somalia's most famous singers. K'naan's grandfather, Haji Mohamed, was a poet. K'naan is also a Muslim. His name, K'naan, means "traveller" in the Somali language. K'naan's father, Abdi, left the country, along with many other intellectuals to settle in New York City and work as a cab driver. He mailed money home to his family (As mentioned in "If Rap Gets Jealous"). As the civil war continued and the situation in Somalia continued to deteriorate, K'naan's mother, Marian Mohamed, petitioned the United States embassy for an exit visa. In 1991, on the last day the US embassy remained open as the government of Mohamed Siad Barre collapsed their visa was approved, and they boarded the last commercial flight out of the country. They joined relatives in Harlem, New York City, before moving to the Toronto, Ontario neighbourhood of Rexdale, where there was a large Somali Canadian community. His family still lives there. In his new country, K'naan began learning English, some through hip hop albums by artists like Nas and Rakim. Despite speaking no English, the young K'naan taught himself hip hop and rap diction, copying the lyrics and style phonetically. He then also began rapping. He dropped out of school in grade ten to travel for a time, rapping at open mic events, and eventually returned to Toronto.
If you had Madden 09 then you probably heard this one
I was a fiend before i became a teen melt the microphone instead of cones of ice cream. Man that album drooped...when that single dropped NY was so intense and thick with, what shaped that true school hip hop like Wu, Tribe, D.I.T.C, EPMD, Redman. I mean it was the real gritty city, in some ways i miss those days, i was wilder and there was allot of this happening and people trying to make it now a days most people are just faking it.
Rakim live in NY
Big thanks to the hardest working man on the Internet DALLAPENN.com
Whats up space monkeys? Its time to get back on the grind with a few more treats. Thanks for your patience i have been having to deal with real life, not the one behind the computer screen. I guess my question for the day is how does Raekwon handle this whole Joe buddens issue? and does this make for better publicity and hype for #Slaughterhouse. I hope you copped the album its fire , it is definitely what hip hop has been missing.
I rufuse to be locked to a computer when the beautiful summer is here. I saw a dead man today and that only makes me enjoy life that much more. i dont have time for silly games, well actually i do. i just dont have time to waste.
LOL..not at the robbery at the cops speech....."he may have had took his heart" WOW
Hey there boys and girls. I hope your feeling fine cause anytime is a perfect time for blog from gudtyme. Some of you know me some don't. i never claim to be the freshest Blogger, that sounds corny in my book. I see some sublime BS from so of the other kids on the block, cause the new kid is way fresher than you know. Guess what Blog King and Queens, i don't give a phuck about your blog! don't hate cause i have access to exclusives i get lucky, and im lucky enough to have gudpeople in my corner, (BIG SHOUT TO DALLASPENN, ROB SWIFT, J.PERIOD) but when you blast some fresh shit it your standard so you don't think you can be touched, but like Marlo said "you think its one way but its not!"
Anyway sorry for the rant just making sure i stay on the offensive since some people are very defensive about a world wide playing field. I am going to try to give you my resume in one sentence. I road managed two hip hop groups, i have put records out on the underground, and i worked on the Chappelle show so i think i have a great understanding on ting and tings in hip hop.
i started this blog so my not so Internet savvy friends could see what foolishness transpires in the trashy side of hip hop. All of the trivial rap wars, and newest fashion, and foremost let them have a page were there would be new and fresh music. So here is a few little samples of my life, today this Hip Hop blog is brought to you by Smokefella films in association with flampro/S.U.Nent

Claude Monet (French pronunciation: [klod mɔnɛ]) also known as Oscar Claude Monet or Claude Oscar Monet (14 November 1840 – 5 December 1926) was a founder of French impressionist painting, and the most consistent and prolific practitioner of the movement's philosophy of expressing one's perceptions before nature, especially as applied to plein-air landscape painting. The term Impressionism is derived from the title of his painting Impression, Sunrise.
