TODAY'S RUMORS!IS JAY-Z GOING TO KILL CHRIS BROWN?Wow.
Here is the latest mess-age. [Jay-Z] hit the roof. Chris is a walking
dead man. He messed with the wrong crew, according to a source with Us
Weekly magazine. The magazine is suggesting, from a sources suggestion
that Jay-Z is going to do bodily harm to Chris Brown for beating down
his princess. I dont know. I do know that this is great
sensationalism. And, I THINK Jay-Z is smarter than to put that sort of
energy out in the street, because there is this thing called "motive"
in crimes. With that said, Chris Breezy is charged with felony battery
and something like making criminal threats. Jay has reportedly don
things in the past, but we're looking at an older, more intelligent
person who probably won't adopt a career in pop star assassination.
"Lets get it on!"
TROUBLE CONTINUES TO LOOMS FOR CHRIS BROWN
It looks like Chris Brown and Rihanna were having an argument right after the Clive Davis pre-Grammy party. When, Rihanna took his Lambo keys and threw them out of the window. When she did, and he couldnt find the keys, Brown lost it. According to E! News, the rest went down like this:
He tried in vain to find the keys, then came back to the car, put his hands around her neck and, according to the insider, said, "I'm going to kill you!"
According to the source, the 20-year-old "Disturbia" singer told police that she lost consciousness, and when she awoke, Brown had fled.
According to the source, her right eye was blackened and badly swollen and she had hand prints on her arms. The responding officers were so concerned about her, they drove Rihanna to the hospital in their squad car instead of waiting for an ambulance.
Officers took two sets of photographs of the banged-up singer, one at the scene and the second after she was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for treatment. Those photos were presumably among the evidence presented to the district attorney.WOW.
THE SUPER GEEK DISSES CHRIS BROWN!
WHO GOT RICK ROSS CARTOON REMOVED?
It was only a few minutes yesterday, but I saw it. The Rick Ross was like a digital treat, if you caught it. Within minutes of it launching, the plug was pulled on the video and it was removed from the net. Clearly, it is likely out there in some form or another. There are rumors around this. It seems like Rick Ross label Def Jam may have blocked his attempt to lash out at 50 Cent. The video had 50 and G-Unit doing some working out that was not heterosexual. Ross was fighting fire with fire! On the other side, I have people that insist it was 50s work that lead to the demise of the Rick Ross video. I wonder who?
Here is the revisit link:
And here is the new Rick Ross diss song.
HAS 50 VS ROSS AFFECTED DJ KHALEDS JOB?
DJ Khaled, who is a VP or president at Def Jam, might be looking for a new position shortly. According to sources days ago, IDJ might be looking to replace him. The first name on the list seems to be Tony Neal, who is the president of the CORE DJs. Apparently several calls have been made to Neal to gauge his interest in the gig. Im not really sure where 50 Cent comes into this other than hes got a running beef with Khaled. That is nothing knew to anybody. More telling is the fact that Khaled's first artist o Def Jam (Ace Hood) didnt do well at all. He still da beeeeeeeeessssss. And, no he didnt kill himself.
SPEAKING OF DUDE
Speaking of that dude that did. I talked to a source that was happy that it wasnt DJ Khaled that killed himself in the white Bentely. They said his brains were splattered all over the inside of the car. Not pretty. Here is the video right before it happened.
KOCH RECORDS ABOUT TO GET SUED?
I heard there is like a class action-type of lawsuit that involves 12-15 producers, Jim Jones and Twista. There are allegations that they were never paid for the Bad Santa album that was released in November on Byrd Gang/Koch. I hear there will be a huge lawsuit filed within the next 30 days. Here s the run down as told by an anonymous source:
About 18 months ago, we submitted some tracks for Jims album on Sony. As you know, Dipse t(Jim Jones and Juelz specifically) have the worst reputations in the industry for not paying producers. I actually was in the studio with Jim 3 years ago when I overheard him say, "We don't pay producers. We blow up producers."
Some 22 year old lame that Jim had collecting beats for him called us and said they wanted 2 of my tracks for the Bad Santa album. We told them what dollar amount we wanted and told em to send the paperwork over. To which these lames asked if WE could have it drafted up. This was a first for us. We knew we were dealing with some straight herbs.
3 weeks later Chris called us up and begged us to send the Pro Tools sessions and said they had to rush because they had to turn the album into Koch in a few days. We told them absolutely not without a check and signed paperwork. 2 weeks later the album comes out and my 2 tracks are on it. They straight 2tracked the mp3s they had. Not only me, but they lied and deceived every single producer whose beats they stole and put on the project.
Twistas manager (he manages a producer who has a track on the album) and myself have hired a firm out of NYC. We have reached out to all the other producers as well. We will be filing a lawsuit in the next 30-60 days. A Cease and Desist made no sense since the album didn't even sell 5,000 copies.
After numerous attempts to reconcile this situation with Yandi (Jims manager) and Koch(who says they cut a lump sum check to Jim to pay all producers), we are forced to sue. And yes, we know Jim got the position of VP of A&R of the urban division of Koch. Which makes this story even more f**kin ridiculous.
I was all set to switch and then this happens! The U.S. switch to digital television signals has been delayed until June 12th.
Rumor has it, Mya might be writing a tell-all book. The only thing is, I dont know that I believe it. She seems very private these days.
Where the HELL is my Foxy Brown response to 50 Cent!?
Faizon 'Big Worm' Love has been charged with felony assault after a fight in Hollywood hotel last month. They wouldnt let him in and he allegedly punched a man in the face. Gotta love it.
I heard Kid Capri might have caught a case. Yesterday, he reportedly was found guilty for the violation of two restraining orders and harassment in New Jerz! He wont be doing any time though.
Milk will no longer let Chris Brown wear the milk mustache. Radio stations are starting to pull his music out of rotation.
Kanye West talks about Rihanna and Chris Brown (to E! News' Ryan Seacrest):
"She has the potential to be the greatest artist of all time and, in that sense, I feel like that's my baby sis and I would do any and everything to help her in any situation. I don't want to speak more into the specifics with that situation, but all I'll say is it's just so devastating. I feel like, just as a person, I dont care how famous she is or even if she just worked at McDonald's, that should never happen. It should never come to that place."
T.I. had a different take on it from his space, which is that of the offender:
"He's [Chris is] cool, you know. He's a little concerned about the situation, but he's still the same Chris. I told him, 'This too shall pass.' We're celebrities, we're entertainers, but we're still humanall of us. Don't expect us not to make mistakes, because we will."
Chris Brown talks about living in an abusive relationship:
"He made me terrified all the time, terrified like I had to pee on myself. I remember one night he made her nose bleed. I was crying and thinking, I'm just gonna go crazy on him one day...' I hate him to this day.
His step father talked to Access Hollywood and fired back and Chris Breezy!
[Chris] has to take responsibility for his own actions. When asked he thought Chris beat up Rhianna, he said I wouldnt be surprised.
EPIC FAIL OF THE DAY!
OH BOY! This is a crazy rugged joke that my buddy ebonymystique told me about. A wife plays a cruel joke on husband in order to get Kanye West tickets for Valentine's Day. The rest is internet history. See the vid!

SHELZ CLOSES OUT THE SET!
My girl Shelz hit me with some news and info to close the day!
Radio Personality Says "No More Chris Brown" Songs
Cleveland radio personality Java Joel has communicated through press release that he will no longer be playing Chris Brown songs on his show; well until this issue of Chris' "shakes out in the legal system." He wrote that his listeners were pretty upset, but they took it a step further and suggested he no longer support Mr. Brown or his music. Java Joel agreed. Then the Program Director heard what was happening and said I agree too. So 96.5 KISS in Cleveland has shelved the Chris Brown catalogue completely, but just until his legal issues is resolved.
Mr. Cannon Has Another Job
He's going to be hosting America's Got Talent since Jerry Springer quit. The folk over at NBC say they have big plans for Mariah's boo. I guess people can't call him a leech now, huh? Good work Nick.
