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.
Not quite sure if this is for real or not, but word is that Irv Gotti has snatched up Busta after supposedly working out a deal with Dr. Dre to let Bussa Bus out of his contract over at Aftermath/Interscope. The deal between Busta and Irv is a distribution deal which will take Flipmode through to 2014. Do people even look that far into the future today?
Say it isn’t so. But fake reports are saying that the Nasti Muzik is somehow on the way to selling more units than Tha Carter III. First of all, are the people who are supposed to be tracking this album able to count past ten? A report has surfaced saying that Her Royal Nastiness sold 450,000 copies in the first day on shelves….hmmm yeah ok. Read for yourselves the lengths someone will go to to bring attention to a project that will be lucky to move a 100,00. If Khia does go platinum I will never say a bad word about the chick again and will spend the rest of my days running her fan club )) http://www.atrl.net/forums/showthread.php?t=58763
The legendary parties held at the home of Hugh Hefner and his ‘bunnies’ have always been the event many hope to get an invite too, but seldom to. It has always been literally a VIP list dripping with a who’s who in Hollywood. Well with us battling a recession it looks like Hugh and his gals are like the rest of us feeling the pinch when it comes to the pennies. For the first time in over 27 years the Playboy Mansion is allowing your everyday man or woman the opportunity to partake in the Annual Midsummer’s Ball taking place on August 9th…the cost…$5,000. There has been a lil outrage at this change in direction by the Playboy boss with people stating ‘the party is about status and not about money.’ Well things are obviously changing. There has been no comment from inside the Bunny House on this change in events.
The entire Dipset crew, including Cam’Ron, Jim Jones and Juelz Santana, have been struggling for a little while now. After Jim’s subpar performance with his last solo and Byrdgang album, and with Cam’Ron getting lyrically assaulted by 50 Cent, the crew that once brought us “Oh Boy” and other Rocafella smashes has hit hard times. Dipset’s golden boy was always Juelz, and after waiting and waiting for the mysterious Juelz/Lil’ Wayne album, and for a solo comeback from Juelz, fans may actually have reason to get excited. According to Miss Info, Cam’Ron has sold Juelz’s contract to Def Jam Records for $2 million and Juelz has signed a 50/50 deal with the label.Juelz also went on to tell Miss Info his mixtape, The Reagan Era, and his album, Born to Lose, Built to Win, should be dropping soon. Stay tuned for more from Juelz.
Always one to encourage a change here and there, Snoop Dogg is looking to star in a Bollyhood movie after recording a track for the soundtrack of Singh is Kinng which will be hitting the big screen in August. The movie was directed by Anees Bazmee and was filmed primarily on location in Australia, a country which has mixed opinions of the Long Beach rapper. However Snoop hopes that his contribution to the up and coming movie will allow him present himself to India as more than a rapper. Snoop has already been cast in various movies in the US including Baby Boy, Training Day, The Wash and Soul Plane.
Though this is old news to most, rap duo Kidz in the Hall was involved in an altercation the other night in Tempe, Arizona. The duo has been picking up major recognition recently due to their new album, The In Crowd. The album features Travis McCoy, Estelle and Big Pooh among others, and the infectious and oft-remixed “Drivin’ Down the Block.” According to details that have emerged thus far, Double O was grabbed by police and thrown to the ground by several bouncers and security guards. At that point, Double O was supposedly kicked and punched as he laid on the ground. Then, Naledge, the other half of the duo, tried to intervene and got arrested. Soon after, Double O was arrested as well. Also according to emerged details, Double O was hospitalized after the incident and the duo missed their scheduled stop with Rock the Bells in Maryland. More details to emerge soon, and we’ll keep you posted. Regardless, best wishes to the Kidz and I hope they’re both doing okay and are back on the road with the Rock the Bells crew.
