Ok so no surprise that DMX born Earl Simmons was denied bond again earlier today in a Miami court after being arrested in the Florida city earlier this month after failing to show up in an Arizona court on drugs and driving charges. DMX expressed his upset at the court room by telling Judge Lawrence Schwartz to f**k off numerous times. It was said that the Ruff Ryder front man had been asking one of the prison officers at the jail in which he was being detained to go out and buy him a MacDonald’s but unfortunately those sort of privileges are just not available to X right now

Trick Trick, the Detroit rapper and co-owner of Plan B Nightclub is maintaining that the incident involving Yung Berg had nothing to do with him. In his interview with AllHipHop.com, Trick Trick detailed the specifics behind the assault and robbery of Berg. He has been in the center of rumors circulating that he set up the Chicago rapper because of past comment he made about him and the Detroit rap scene. Additional reporting by Rashaan Meador
Yung Berg and his brother/artist Cap 1 were reportedly beaten up and robbed this weekend in Detroit at a local nightclub. There are also pictures that have surfaced with an unknown assailant wearing his well known “Transformers” chain. He was in town for Hot 102.7’s annual Summer Jamz concert. This may be the cue he was looking for to actually become more “under the radar” instead of continuing the media tirade he has been on for the last couple of weeks.

A female rapper from ATL who goes by the stage name Maryjane was granted a restraining order against Phoenix Suns star Shaquille O Neal who has allegedly been stalking the 23 year old perfromer born Alexis Miller. Miller and O Neal who were allegedly involved in a relationship for eight months broke up last month and threatening text messages from the NBA player were submitted as evidence in court on Thursday last week. It has also been reported that O Neal told Miller that he would pay other rappers $50,000 to not work with the burgeoning rap star because of their break up. Sources have implied that Miller was the reason as to why O Neal and his wife Shaunie were heading for the divorce court last year. However the couple have since reconciled and are working on making their marriage work. Shaq has been ordered to stay away from Miller and her 19 month old child and prohibited to have any contact with her or come within 200 m of her. He was accused of stalking, threatening bodily harm and harassing phone calls.
He may be heading for a government holiday but you can be guaranteed that jeweler to the stars Jacob Arabov is making sure he is dealing with his business before heading out of town on his sabbatical. Having already named Wyclef Jean in a law suit for not paying balances owed on jewelry created and supplied by Arabov, new names have now been added to that list. These include Juvenile, Knicks player Eddy Curry and the infamous late payer Scott Storch. I think Jacob will have to join a very long line when it comes to getting his cash from Scott Storch somehow.
Chicago femcee Da Brat has just been sentenced to three years behind bars and a further seven years probation for attacking a waitress in a nightclub last year with a bottle. Looks like things can’t get much worse for the McCoy girls right now. The alleged attack happened when a waitress at Jermaine Dupri’s Studio 72 failed to respond to Da Brat, born Shawnte Harris’s advances. The victim, a former cheer leader suffered permanent scarring from the attack. Da Brats family were in the Dekalb County, Georgia courtroom when she was sentenced.
…surprise surprise LAX. The tape called LAX Touchdown from the three uniteers is supposed to drop August 26th, just to stir up a little more controversy between the Queens collective and Game. But just when is this Banks tape going to drop, we have been hearing music from it now for what seems like months but still no tape…and now this. Word on the street…again is that Banks is looking to get off G Unit but word from the camp is that that is nothing but a rumor and Banks is staying loyal.
Looks like Faith Evans is ready to talk on one about her involvement with Tupac in her new book. The incident that encouraged Tupac to insinuate that he had infact messed around with Biggies then wife on camera will be cleared up by Faith who has always denied any physical involvement with her late husbands nemesis. According to the autobiography, Tupac did proposition Evans on more than one occasion but Faith refused all advances validating Faith’s theory that Tupac was using her name in his war against Biggie. Her book is in stores now.
Looks like 50 is giving investigators the run around when it comes to be questioned about the fire that broke out at his Dix Hills, Long Island home in May. The house which was at the center of an ongoing feud between the rapper and Shaniqua Tompkins, his former girlfriend and mother of his ten year old son Marquise burned to the ground and the cause of the fire has yet to be determined.It is standard procedure for fire officials and the arson team to meet with the owner of the said property in every instance regarding a fire. However as of yet 50 has not made any attempt to meet with officials regarding this matter. Legal counsel for Tompkins are implying that this is 50 Cent trying to hinder the progression of the case. Response has yet to be made from Curtis’s camp.
Seriously the ego has landed. We had Jay Z last week and now the Compton rapper is saying that Dre’s project would be an ‘injustice to the producer if it didn’t feature him (Game). As according to Game himself, he quite simply is..the West Coast. I truly hope for his sake LAX is his best album to date as for all the trash this dude is talking you know people are just waiting in the wings to take aim at him.
We see her on the cover of damn near every magazine on the newstand but the former business manager of Rihanna is insinuating that the sultry wifey of Chris Brown might be in need of some financial assistance very soon. Patricia Williams who was up until very recently handling the singers financial arrangements was fired after Rihanna discovered only $20,000 in her account. Now PW is saying that Def Jam are not looking after Rhianna financially (surprise surprise) and all the money she makes from her endorsements etc are being spent by her manager on her albums and videos, without of course Rihanna’s approval. The trials and tribulations of being a recording artist today I guess.
Things obviously aren’t working out for JD in certain areas of his business. The PSM (pint sized mogul) has had to shut down his Atlanta eatery Cafe Dupri which is located in the Buckhead region of the city. Word is though that staff were left without their money once the place closed. PSM must be saving for his wedding afterall.
Not sure why people actually find this surprising really. Cam’Ron blocking Juelz from moving forward with his career by collaborating like Weezy has. Juelz said recently in an interview with MTV that he could have probably been on just as many songs as Wayne had his label boss not kept him in the corner. Well hopefully Juelz will be standing on his own two feet now and we will be seeing a lot more of him as he said it himself back in 2005, he is what the game is missing.
