The Black Eyed Peas have been hired to perform at the Estate of Russian billionaire Ramon Abramovich on New Years Eve. The Peas will head to St. Barts, where the group will party and perform with Abramovich, on his 70-acre, $90 million dollar private estate. According to reports, Abramovich is sparing no expense for the party and has spent millions on entertainment, food, drinks and other party favors for guests. Abramovich, who is worth almost $18 billion dollars, is Russia’s 4th richest person. He is known to travel with a personal army of at least 40 security guards. Kurtis Blow Jr., the son of Hip-Hop pioneer Kurtis Blow has released his first official mixtape. KBJ’s Californication mixtape features guest appearances from Drake, Nicki Minaj, Tempo and other. Production on Californication was handled by Boi-1da, CheckMate, Rocko, Aliby and others. KBJ, who recently ended the 32-city WorldWide Breaks Tour with his father Kurtis Blow, is planning to launch his own tour in support of his new mixtape. The “Californication Tour” is slated to kick off in February of 2011. KBJ will be seen next on stage in Japan during a series of concerts with his father. The first date on Lauryn Hill’s highly anticipated Winter 2011 tour has been rescheduled because of terrible weather conditions in New York. The first date on the tour, which was slated for last night (December 27th) at the Highline Ballroom, will now take place at the same venue, but on February 1st. According to a rep for the Highline Ballroom, all tickets for the original date will be honored. For fans that cannot make the new February date, full refunds are being offered. If the tour itinerary is still accurate, Lauryn Hill is expected to play at the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, New York tonight (December 28th).
