SHAWTY LO GOT THAT HEAT LITERALLY!
For the longest time, people tried to say that Shawty Lo had the MONSTER HIV. Well, we now know that that isnt the case. In fact, I believe I was the person to break that one, before his PR jumped in. Here is one. I heard from a hospital worker that Shawty Lo recently had some complications with his diabetes, the disease that started the AIDS/HIV rumors. I heard Shawty Lo was there and got in the bed and when he did there was a bulge around the waistline. From what I was told, it was clear that Shawty was packing and when I say that I mean packing heat. I heard he attempted to cover the firearm, but it was too late. A nurse attempted to tell him to return the gun to his vehicle. I heard he denied that request, claiming that there was a new law that allowed him to sport it. After a bit of back and forth, Lo decides to comply and put it back. I heard Lo may have had a female companion that had his back 100%, if you catch my drift.
OZONE AWARDS RUMORS
Te Ozone Awards are coming up. They are really going to be fun this year. The one thing I heard was kind of cool, but also kind of crazy. They are taking extra big precautions with the event. Rumor has it, there are certain artists that have a reputation for violence and gang affiliation that are not being invited to the event. I cannot say any names on this one, because I dont want to be a victim to violence. Also, on Friday August 8th, Cash Money Records and Rap-O-Lot Records are having an official 'Welcome To Houston' Party. You have to find that one.

A BREAK FOR SHELZS RUMORS
Joell Ortiz Speaks Out on Brooklyn Bodega.
Joell Ortiz was not at the Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival this year. Why? He wasn't invited. Not to be confused with a spurned rapper, Mr. Ortiz carefully crafts his issue with Brooklyn Bodega on his latest blog. Long story short, Ortiz claims his issue with the organization is born of the lack of non-white artists and audience members during the first year of the festival. The participants took over the Brooklyn area soaking up hip hop culture while the creative force behind the genre (the homies) was forced to sit by the wayside until the end. That's when the real Brooklyn residents got to clean up after their visitors. The Brooklyn born and bred Ortiz sees this as a smaller issue of the larger problem, the gentrification of BK. Ortiz knows he is burning a bridge with this one, but he doesn't seem to care. Oftentimes the good fight requires sacrifice.
Ghostface Does R&B?
Well, he's done it before, but in small increments. Now the Wu-Tang member is talking about a full on R&B album; lots of features of course (I don't think he plans to sing) but most definitely with a street edge. He didn't give up too many details to the good folk over at Sirius Shade 45, but he did say he wants to do 13 tracks of that Ne-Yo ish .
Signs of the Promised Goodie Mob Reunion . Nope.
Gnarls Barkley is on tour right now so there is a lot of press about this pair. I found an interview that read Cee-Lo was being kept busy by his solo album and the impending reunion with Goodie Mob (yay!). Then the next piece of press read when the duo wraps the tour they are going in for the third Gnarls Barkley project (boo!). Then there was some mention of a solo album for Cee-Lo (sigh). I'm keeping hope alive though.
One More TVT Resolution
Lil Jon has finally been let go from his TVT bankruptcy bondage and it sounds like he came away with a sweet deal. He was released from his contract so he's now an unsigned artist, but Orchard (the highest bidder at the TVT auction) has made him an exec in the new organization. He will be developing marketing and promotional programs as well as serving as a consultant to the existing artist group. He also retains ownership of his latest project, Crunk Rock. No word on where Lil Jon will be resting his head as an artist as of yet, but I'm sure he wont be free for long. Click here for the AHH story.

KIDZ IN THE HALL FIGHT ON VIDEO!
Double-O of Kidz in the Hall might have a legitimate case. His alleged assault has been captured on the net.
Damn, security. It was like 10 to one.
LADY DRAMA CLEANS UP!Lauryn is ready for a comeback from way back! Seems like the rawness known as Jasmine Sullivan is pushing Lauryn Hill to get off her ass and make a comeback! (Just my personal opinion so don't quote me, yes I just gave my own damn disclaimer lol) Word on the street is Ms. Hill is heading back to the studio to make some magic again! According to showbiz spy:
Lauryn Hill is building up material for a major comeback after giving birth to her five kids - she has song ideas and lyrics scribbled all over her bathroom. The reclusive stars longtime partner Rohan Marley reveals Hill is as prolific as anyone in the music business, and cannot stop writing lyrics and tunes while shes on hiatus. He says, She writes music in the bathroom, on toilet paper, on the wall. She writes it in the mirror if the mirror smokes up. She writes constantly. This woman does not sleep.
Call me crazy but after all these years I was wondering what Lauryn was up to other than catching up on some sleep! With five kids I'm sure she's used to sleepless nights anyway! Don't get me wrong I'm a huge Lauryn Hill fan but I am a bit butt hurt about her taking so long to come with a follow up after the Miseducation album :-( Hopefully this isn't a false alarm! I'm pulling for you L-Boogie! Beyonce talks politics... Well not all the way! Beyonce was spotted walking the streets with her two favorite men as accessories, Jay-Z and a Barack Obama tee shirt! So I guess we know where her loyalties lie! Not like it was ever a question but you never know she is from TX, nothing against my TX folks but it is a majority republican state so I'm just saying! In any event I'm glad to see Beyonce's letting up a bit! Speaking of Politics peep this: Tyra Banks portrays Michelle Obama in the recent Harper's Bazaar Fall fashion issue! Any thoughts? I have one: how about NOT IMPRESSED! Moving along...... Common gets Nerdy...... Literally! I'm so excited about this.... Common and NERD will be teaming up for a summer tour called The Invincible Sounds of Summer Tour! I hear three dates have already been confirmed and there's more to come! This comes at a special time for both artists seeing as NERD just came off the Glowing in the Dark Tour and Common has an album coming out shortly! This will be a great show that I'm sure some of us won't want to miss so I'll keep you all posted with the dates as I hear about them :-) Looking for someone to take me I'm broker than a worn out g-string.... any takers? LOL Just kidding wanted to get ya'll attention! I'm back.... Lady Drama's Food For Thought: I heard Bow Wow has a sex scene with a porn star in the new season of HBO's Entourage..... Is anyone else disgusted or is it just me? Diddy's back on his swimming game, I hear he was all touchy feely with Sanaa during the SoSo Def weekend bash in ATL..... Could this be true? If so good look for Diddy and that's all I'm going to say about that! Am I the only one who feels Bill O Riley should get cool points for turing a bust it baby into a housewife? That takes patience and a mean stick game! I aint mad at cha Bill ;-) Just don't talk bad about us when we do our dirt! Go hard or Go Home! BEFORE WE GO...SOME ILL PICS!Serious Riri and Happy Chris go out. Why do we care? I can't believe people follow these folks around like this.
