E Bay have been slammed with a $63 million bill payable to French fashion house Louis Vuitton.

Looks like legendary Hot 97 DJ has aligned himself with 50 Cent as the battle between 50 and Young Buck heats up.

The basis for Flex siding with Curtis…one word…loyalty. “Unfortunately, I can’t move with Young Buck because I’m on that loyalty thing, man,” were the words Flex used.

Cities like Detroit, Philly, DC, Baltimore, Atlanta, Chicago and Baltimore are looking at their own Black news channel it seems, if the plan spearheaded by JC Watts, former Republican Congressman for Oklahoma overcomes the obstacles it faces. The intent is to provide a 24 hour news service which will be seen as “the single destination for reliable, credible, informational resources for the African-American community.” With the only Black TV channels being more directed on entertainment, BET and TV One, the new news network will fill a void that there is within the African American communities for news that people want to hear. Watts is also adamant in working towards obliterating the stigmatism that links Black faces to crime with the news network. “I’m not so sure that you see anything on CNN or Fox News that specifically targets the African-American community,” Watts explained in a recent interview with the NY Post. And even though the challenges faced with a project of this magnitude are extensive, Watts thinks that America is indeed ready for a change to the generic format of news channels, just as the public has warmed to Barrack Obama.
