Word on the street is that Young Buck is claiming to be a Crip, check out the link below to see what y’all think. http://www.zshare.net/audio/17109492e234ac14/
OK so it turns out that the situation between Lil Wayne and a New Orleans jeweler has been resolved amicably. Weezy had purchased a ring and a chain costing over $160,000 but had only paid the jeweler $24,000 and had agreed to pay the remainder of the balance off monthly(Obviously on a Cash Money Layaway Plan) Anyhow turns out that the agreement will see Weezy hand back over the $138,000 ring and the reminder of the cash.
Yesterdays GUESS WHO was in fact Lil Kim, Turns out the (former) rapper might be taking a new direction for her somewhat stale career and is thinking about posing for the December center spread in Playboy magazine. This has yet to be confirmed by Kim’s camp but you have to admit, that check might be the best one Kim has seen in a minute.
Here is a brief update as to what our fave celebs are up to when it comes to their business. Sean Combs – He may be unlucky in love but he sure is successful when it comes to his smells. After the success of Sean John, Diddy has gone on to develop yet another fragrance. This one is called I am King…not too sure about the name, but then wasn’t too stuck on the shiny suits either but they def made a lasting impression. Beyonce – Shame Jayonce hasn’t had the success with her clothing line that her husband has had with his. Word is, House of Dereon is closing its doors and I can’t say I am surprised as some of the lines available from the Knowles women were not what you would expect from a fashionista such as Bey Z. Def Jam – Take away the new age King and Queen of R&B Ne Yo and Rihanna, Def Jam really isn’t doing much these days but to add a new twist to their marketing and promotions they are planning on utilizing the big screen to promote up and coming albums from their artists by previewing their videos before, during and after movies. I am sure Meth, the Roots and Ghostface are on the top of the list to recieve that extra boost. Lil Jon – The King of Crunk has managed to secure his masters in his new deal with Orchard, the company that bought out TVT earlier this year. Nice to see labels making situations somewhat easier for artists.
They say that when it rains, it pours and nothing could be more correct in the case of Rick Ross. The MIA rapper is now being sued for child support for his two year old son, William Leonard Roberts III (named after his Daddy obviously). The baby momma is also insisting that Ross take a paternity test too to enhance her chances of getting the money she is looking for. Ain’t that something, a two year old child and paternity not being established and it being the Momma instigating the test and its even more something when his legal representation is saying that he has already been contributing towards costs for the child and medical expenses.
Word on the street is that the infamous Live Nation deal that Jay Z was supposed to sign may end up being the deal that never was. The $150 million dollar deal that had media outlets hopping back in April as it would be the biggest deal ever planned for the company who is a spin off of Clear Channel Communications. Talk of the town is that Jay might be headed over to Warner Music Group where his old homie Lyor Cohen is situated.
A man in Jacksonville, Florida had to call the cops the other day, his reason for making the call – because the good folks at Subway failed to make his sandwich how he wanted. The 42 year old man Reginald Peterson got so mad with the servers who had forgotten to put the sauce on, that employees had to lock him out of the store, which encouraged him to go and call 911, not once, but twice (the second time because the cops were taking too damn long to get there). He was arrested on a misdemeanor and charged for making nuisance calls. Never come between a man and his food.
And who said money can buy you whatever you want? Looks like Sean Combs is having issues with securing relationships with all the media attention he gets. The Bad Boy spoke out in a recent interview saying that because he is linked to so many different women it can actually interfere with the women that he really wants to be talking to. Now is this for real or is this just a cover up for his alleged relationship with Cassie? It was only last week that there rumors the two were secretly engaged. Either way, poor Diddy, I guess the old saying of it being tough at the top is true after all.Maybe he needs to check out this dating agency, sure he could find someone for himself on there who is looking to hook up with someone who is more interested is his bank balance than who he is linked to www.sugardaddie.com
There is a chance that former N Sync front boy, turned solo superstar, Justin Timberlake might be hosting the 2009 Academy Awards. Now granted he did a great job of Saturday Night Live a couple of years ago (See video inside of the classic D**k in a Box sketch) but for real the Oscars? I am tempted to start a campaign to bring back Chris Rock who kicked it on stage back in 2005. Yeah bring back Chris.
When your case is headed to the appeal courts, you have to make sure you have the best legal representation available to man and Remy Ma has made sure she is going to be represented to the highest level when it comes to the appeal of her trial. Bringing on board William Murphy Jnr, a prominent Baltimore lawyer, Remy and her crew hope that he will have the same success for her that he has had for clients such as DMX, Mary J Blige and Don King. William Murphy, or Billy as he is more favorably known is sure that Remy Ma will be vindicated of all charges once his team unearth the real truth of what happened last Summer when the Bronx based rapper allegedly shot friend, Makeda Barnes-Joseph, in the stomach after leaving the Pizza Bar in Manhattan. Remy was found guilty of assault, illegal weapon possession and attempted coercion and was later sentenced to eight years behind bars.
