Hip-Hop Rumors: Did Lil Kim's Bentley Face The Repo Man?
Hip-Hop Rumors: The Game's A "Cop Killer"? Bow Wow and Berg Fight! Akon's Not Going Country! Solange's New Man?
MARIAH CAREY AND NICK CANNON ARE MARRIED!?!
What the devil?
I thought Nick Cannon was a gigolo. Dude, according to Latina magazine, these lovebirds are officially hitched. The magazina reports that they got married in small, intimate ceremony on an island. The source said it was very impulsive.
Of course Da Brat was the best man. IM KIDDING. Da Brat was there though and you know she and Mariah are super tight.
Here are some of the oddities of this situation.
They JUST met in March on the set of her new video.
Mariah is over 10 years older than Nick. Not that that matters, but she is 38 and he is 27. Whatever works.
WHO GAVE KIM THE BENTLEY?
Sooooo people have been raging about Who gave Lil Kim that silver Bentley that was almost repod! Well, who knows for sure, but I heard it was none other than Scott Storch. You would have to have been born yesterday not to remember that Scottie and Kimmie were and item for a hot minute just before Kim went to jail. And, in that minute he showered her with lavish gifts. Scott was going back and forth between Paris Hilton and Lil Kim at that time. He was living it up and now he may be giving it up. He had to sell his yacht for a fraction of what it was worth and rumors of his finances have circulated for quite some time.
I dont know where the source of this story is, but here is something I found on a message board.
Last month, Storch was sued by a record label owner in Los Angeles, claiming the producer borrowed $100,000 in 2003 so his home wouldn't go into foreclosure and never paid him back. He sued, saying Storch now owes him $500,000 -- $100,000 for the unpaid loan and $400,000 for four tracks he was supposed to produce as a part of the loan (valued at $100,000 a piece).
Now, Scotty seems to be still hurting for cash. His yacht, named Tiffany, has recently popped up on Ebay. The 1995 Norship/Davenport, which was purchased in '95 for $11.9 million, it up for auction. In the item's description, it says "owner bought her and got short on money."
We're not sure if this yacht still belongs to Storch, but it used to, we're sure of that. Due to the recent reports of the producer having troubles with his finances, it seems to fit. The boat was previously valued by Rolling Stone at a cool $20 million.
It has to suck for your personal financial situation to be on blast like that. But, mine is worse: Im broke.
SEAN BELLS SECTION
A bunch of rappers are convening super soon, I am hearing. They are working on a massive song in ode to Sean Bell. From what I hear, they have CONFIRMED Fabolous, Swizz Beatz, Styles P, Jadakiss, Drag-on, Talib Kweli and one or two others. Now, I heard they are attempting to link up with Nas, Busta Rhymes, Mos Def and others. I heard the Heatmakers are on the beat. Shout out to all these brothers! They need to pull Jean Grae out of retirement and get a female or two on there. Or NOT. Brothers gonna work it out.
JAY-Z IN BALTIMORE
Jay-Z was seen at Lotus in New York on Wednesday at Vashtie's birthday party the other day. I thought to myself: Who the devil is Vashtie? Here is what I got:
Anyway, on the stalker tip, I heard Jay is going to be in Baltimore prior to a show. Zip on over to Delaware too, Jigga.
Dennis Rodman got knocked by the cops on suspicion of domestic abuse. I rmember when this dude was a shy guy on the Detroit Pistons. SMH.
Bobbi Kristina, daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, allegedly tried to stab her mother and then tried to kill herself by slashing her own wrists (as if she could kill herself by slashing somebody elses wrists).
SIGNS THE WORLD IS COMING TO AN END!
This man must have lost all his noodles to think he could pull this one off. Click here to read about the man that tried to cash a $360 BILLION CHECK from his local BANK.
RANSOM: MY FAVORITE RAPPER OF THE MOMENT.
OK, so I have to say. My new favorite rapper is Ransom. Click here to cop Ransoms new CD, Street Certified. The Budden beef threw illseed off (third person alert), but illseed is now a street certified fan. (To Ran fans & stans: I know Im late. Sorry.)
Here are some videos:
Ransom Ransom Note and Drug Money
Ransom Cant Tell Me Nothing
Ran vs Budden: the freestyle starts at 1:10. (This is actually when I noticed that dude was a SERIOUS BEAST. I must of listened to this about 135 times.)
Yes, he said the flow dumb like Cam on 60 minutes. Im done.
