After partying the night away at the VMAs over in Los Angeles last night, Weezy obviously didn’t mind how much it costs in gas to get him across country via private jet to make sure he kept his date this morning. He was due in court in Manhattan to answer charges relating to weapons posession this morning and surprisingly enough, he made it. I dont think the judge would have allowed him a pass after being seen all over the TV last night and then failed to show up today so Weezy gets the attendance star today.
A woman was stretchered out of a Three 6 Mafia concert last night and two people arrested as a fight broke out at the LA House of Blues where the ‘Hollyhood’ rappers were performing.

It is close to seventy years since the Hollywood Palladium first opened its doors. The venue was the place that encouraged the careers of artists like Frank Sinatra and performers such as the Rolling Stones and James Brown as well as holding high profile parties for the likes of John F Kennedy and dare I say in the same breath as JFK, Paris Hilton and Lyndsey Lohan. The 4,000 capacity venue was leased to Live Nation back in 2007 and the company decided to make some changes to the iconic venue in an attempt to restore the art-deco inspired building to its former glory. So who better to hit the stage on the opening night on October 15th but Live Nation’s very own poster boy Jay Z. “Just as Frank ushered in a golden era, I hope this opening will mark the beginning of a resurgence in generation-defining live music,” said Brooklyn’s finest.
LAPD, yeah we all know what those guys are like, stopped a car being driven by one of Puffy’s boys this past weekend while the Didster and his entourage were cruising down Sunset. The car which wasnt tagged correctly alerted the watchful eyes of the LAPD and the stopped the vehicle to check it out. Upon seeing their boy being stopped and questioned Puffy and a couple of others from the second vehicle walked over to see just what the issue was, (you know how New Yorkers be on their guard when dealing with the LAPD) for the cops to pull a gun on Diddy and those with him. Allegedly the cops didnt realize that Diddy was part of the group who had approached nonthreatening and with extreme caution, but once they realized it was in fact Sean Combs it was high fives all round, autographs were signed and everyone went on their way peacefully.

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.

Auditions are being held in Hollywood on the 6th of September for anyone interested.
