Nicki Minaj UK interview... playfully describes what her & Drakes kids would be like 

Check out Nicki's recent interview with Tim Westwood.


Rick Ross has a new lady in his life

awwww love is in the air :) Rick Ross is currently dating Actress Elise Neal (All Of Us Sitcom). Since 50 Cent took Ross EX out shopping for furs...etc, Some are making a big deal out of the fact that Elise admits she was once involved with 50 Cent.. here's a excerpt of her speaking about 50.
“Right now we’re really just cool, but it would be the understatement of the year for me to say it was always just that. We’re friends enough to where he knows that if we’re doing something I’m not gonna go run and tell. That’s not my personality.”
Some people are trying to turn this into a "Ross gets the ultimate revenge against 50" type thing. I honestly don't believe that's what it's about... Yes Elise did admit to dealing with 50 but it didnt seem like they were in a serious committed relationship... either way. Good Luck to her and Ross, i'm all for Love :)


Housewives of Atlanta Peter Thomas speaks. "Kim is crazy as F***, Nene has a big a** mouth 

If you watch Reality show Housewives of Atlanta you already know cast member Peter Thomas (Cynthia Bailey husband) is not one to bite his tongue. Recently peter had a lot to say about his fellow cast members NeNe, Kim, Phaedra, Sheree & Kandi.

If they say, “What do you think about the other Housewives?” I’m gonna say, “I can’t stand Phaedra’s ass. I think Kim is crazy as f–k. Nene has a big-ass mouth, okay? And Sheree’s not cute! She thinks she’s cute, but she’s not cute.” And this is ON the record. The only one I like is Kandi, and she’s too soft. That’s why she got played with Kim. And that’s how I truly feel. “

When asked about his wife Cynthia lending him money, he responds...

it’s not like she’s supported my vision and gave me money to build a restaurant ’cuz that’s not what happened. And I want to clear that up. I didn’t agree with her putting that out there to the public. But she’s on a reality show and she’s a new jack to it, so she might feel as if that’s what she needed to do. I didn’t agree to that. But I didn’t oppose either, especially if she’s telling the truth. She has the right to say it. But I don’t want the viewers to leave with the impression, “Oh, sh-t. He got with this model girl and she’s putting up all this money to support his sh-t.” That’s not the way it is. 


50 Cent releases video of himself spazzing on Worldstar CEO "play wit me if you want"

I'm not sure exactly what's behind the 50 vs worldstar feud, i do know 50 has a lawsuit against them for using his image on worldstar, but there also seems to be other personal issues involved. 50 is EXTREMELY upset in the video footage he released of himself screaming at the top of his lungs at World Star Hip Hop CEO Q when he called into HOT 97s Angie Martinez show.
"don't wassup me you sucka, i should black ya eye. tell em how you was on my tour bus in 2003 and you created a area where everybody could try to hate on me. you a sucka, you know not to be playin wit me anyway. you know you no where near my caliber of breed punk. you sucka, you know how i get down, play wit me if you want. you see the suit and tie you think i cleaned all the way up like that, watch me show you some of the old me. i dare you to try and say something crazy, you a sucka"
During the whole conversation Q (Worldstar CEO) remained calm and a bit confused as to why 50 was screaming at him. I don't know who the person was laughing in the background during the taping but... the laughing kinda annoyed me... clearly 50 was seriously upset and not joking, the background giggling wasn't really appropriate.

****UPDATE*** worldstarhiphop.com was back up and running yesterday


Steve Harvey's lawyer issues a statement about his ex wifes youtube allegations


Steve Harvey's lawyer issued the following statement about his ex-wife Mary's accusations:

We are appalled and aware of the videos and other fabricated documents, which were placed on the internet over the weekend by the ex-wife of Mr. Steve Harvey, which contained false, misleading, derogatory, disparaging, malicious, explicit and slanderous information about Mr. Harvey, his current wife and others.

We are saddened that the ex-wife has resorted to such devious and selfish behavior, with a reckless disregard for their minor son, her adult son and Mr. Harvey’s other children.

The ex-wife is fully aware of the court’s current orders and permanent injunctions which prohibit either party, their lawyers or representatives from discussing and releasing information on the Internet and to the media.

We are taking the necessary legal steps to rectify this matter to the full extent of the law, and we will be seeking contempt and sanctions against her for such reprehensible and callous disregard for the court orders.

Mr. Harvey cannot personally respond to these assertions, documents and videos due to the existing court gag orders.



2009 Throwback: Dame Dash speaks "Lyor Cohen is a funny dude, his influence broke up Rocafella" 

Ahhhhh the days of the ROC will be forever missed by those of us who experienced the era. I know they say you shouldn't live in the past but... if i could bring Jay and Dame together in peace to recreate what they accomplished in the past i would. They had a combination of business & creative magic that i doubt will ever be duplicated.

I came across a interesting 2009 Dame Dash interview where he talks about Rocafella, Jay Z, Beenie, Kanye, Lyor Cohen, Dipset and the breakup. say's he's always be there for Jim Jones because Jim is loyal. Talks about being in the rock world and not wanting to deal with the Urban world and labels like KOCH.
"Kanye is really brilliant and he's a genius or at times he probably lost his mind, one or the other, usually geniuses lose their minds. I always will admire his hustle, his worke ethic, that louis vuitton deal he did was very impressive to me, the french dont f**k with anybody."
"Lohor is a funny dude, he's a mastermind, brillant and he's not scared, his influence is what broke up rocafella. its just all business. even though i'm not runnin it no more he still don't wanna something to go down. it feels good but it feels bad, its bitter sweet."

World Star Hip Hop is shut down. 50 Cent says "I put worldstar to bed, I will shut your sh*t down"

Today if you tried to log in to the popular Hip Hop site worldstarhiphop.com you would have seen it was not accessible and seemed to be shut down by homeland security. 50 Cent took to twitter today and wrote several tweets to let the world know he is responsible for the mysterious shut down....

World Star Hip Hop's CEO Q has responded to 50 Cent shut down claims. Q says "50 had nothing to do with it"... he says 50 is taking claim for something he didn't do. Q also says the shut down came from heavy traffic and server issues. When asked by HOT 97s Angie Martinez in (today's interview)... what's the beef with 50 about Q didn't offer many details, he vagely responded
"i been rollin with Whoo Kid since 99, helpin that whole movement... me and 5th had a fall back."
When Angie asked Q how he feels about 50 saying worldstar is too negative? Q responded...
"this coming from a artist that talks negative, its entertainment... we not actually going out taping these brawls, im just a messagenger, dont shoot the messenger"...
Angie asked when will wordstarhiphop be back up and running Q says
"it should be back up shortly, 24 hours"
In November 2009, 50 announced a lawsuit against World Star Hip (SOHH)
"I gotta lawsuit against World Star for utilizing my likeness," he said in an interview. "A lot of people felt like that was my site because they saw my face on the cover of [the website] for a long time. I have lawyers on retainers and I have to pay them so much money anyway, so we'll go back and forth to court until [they] can't afford a subway sandwich. It's already too late for [them]."

Singer Bobby Brown mother passed away, "It is a sad time for me right now"

Singer Bobby Brown lost his mother, Carole Brown, last Thursday (January 20) in Los Angeles. However details regarding his passing were unknown at press time. (via Allen Starbury)

Carole was 69 years old.

In a statement, releasing through his camp, Brown said his mother supported him through his rise in the music biz and through his rough patches -- which included multiple arrests and drug problems.

Although the 41-year-old R&B singer says it's a sad time in his life, he plans to celebrate her life.
"It is a sad time for me right now," Brown said. "I am experiencing a tremendous loss, but I vow to celebrate her life in every way that I can with my entire family, including my fiancé Alicia, and my children Bobbi Kristina, LaPrincia, Bobby Jr and Cassius."
A private funeral held for the family in Boston, Massachusetts.


Steve Harvey's ex wife speaks out (part II) "he turned my son against me, had me evicted"

This is starting to sound a lot like the opening scenes to Tyler Perry's "Diary Of A Mad Back Woman" and Terry McMillian's "Waiting To Exhale". In the video footage below Mary Harvey says she helped steve build his empire when he had nothing and he turned his back on her... says he had her evicted out the house, turned their son against her and now has a lawsuit against her for (allegedly) being responsible for Oprah not offering him a TV show.
"He turned my son against me, had me evicted from our house, thrown out... all the businesses all the money the cars at a moment when i was down, i was down and devastated. He manipulated everything... the courts, he went to court and under oath said he built this whole thing by himself. i just sat at the table and cried. I cried through the whole thing, i fell apart, i was crying, i couldn't focus, i couldn't answer any of the questions they were asking me. I woke up and everything was gone. it was just gone. As much as i tried to put it behind me, its hard to put something behind you that keeps popping up in your life." Mary continues....

"There is a lawsuit against me in Texas because in Steve's opinion i was responsible when Oprah did not give him a TV show." she adds "as much as i try to move forward i keep getting pulled back into a situation that i don't want to be a part of. That's why i have to deal with this right now, that is why i'm saying what i have to say."
