“I haven’t seen it but, we all know dude,” he said of Fif. “We all know his intentions, we all know his motives. We’ve seen this too many times before. You know, I play chess, not checkers, you dig? I ain’t even trippin’ off of that. At the end of the day, I’m more worried or concerned about what a man says to me or what a man does to me, not what he says or does in the eyes of the public.”

So is Tip being the bigger man.....or avoiding a challenge.
Wow! Lola has been grinding- acting, modeling and hitting the studio real hard in preparation for the release of mixtape- Welcome To A Boss Bitches World. And I must admit, the few tracks I have heard she murdered them.
Ready Or Not- Lola
Lola is also featured in the March 09 issue of XXL. In the article she speaks on her transition from model to rapper.

Today pop star, Rihanna turns 21 and is admist the biggest scandal of her career, the demise of her very public relationship.
Cover Girl, Pop Star, Barbanian Beauty are just some of the roles Rihanna commonly played. But now she is the face of Domestic Violence. As of 7:00pm last night, the nightmare that pop star Rihanna has been going through, not just since the Febuary 8th incident, but since she initially decided to deal with the temperment of an abuser, took a turn for the worse.
TMZ, in cooperation with LAPD, illegally released a photo from the night her boyfriend, Chris Brown, assualted her. This photo confirmed what many who have had experience with domestic violence already knew, it wasn't the first time- it was the worst time.
Former B2K member, Raz-B, whose gov't name is De'Mario Monte Thornton is the latest former teen star to trail off in to an exotic lifestyle. Or should I say erotic. According to various sources, Raz has joined the ranks of Mr.Marcus in the adult film industry. He now has a profile on Adult Space, which is a raunchy Myspace.
The images are NSFW....At All! Click Here Whoa!!! Raz is working with a monster!!!
The last we heard of Raz- B were when the allegations of rape/molestation against B2k's former manager were brewing. And now this. Is this another attempt to stay relevant? Or his inner, scorned, child crying for help?
Last night, Solange Knowles had an incident on a flight. The R&B songtress passed out. Citing too much Nyquil. Damn girlie what are they putting in Nyquil these days??????
R&B star SOLANGE KNOWLES was admitted to hospital when she collapsed after downing flu pills on a flight out of New York on Tuesday night (17Feb09). Beyonce’s younger sister was treated by medics after taking the capsules onboard a plane and suffering an adverse reaction to the medication. Her muddled mental state was laid bare in a series of bizarre postings on social networking website Twitter.com which she uploaded during the journey. But three hours into the trip, her messages suddenly stopped after she complained of feeling sleepy - and three hours later she logged back on to the website to tell fans: “Woaah…… How’d I end up in the hospital?” Knowles is believed to have been heading back to her home in Los Angeles after attending the opening of an Armani store in New York on Tuesday evening.
Immediately after coming back to a clear state of mind Solange posted these twits(twitter post) about the incident:
“I’ve never passed out before. S**t was like the movies. People standing over me saying ‘hello’… My mom is the best. LOL (laugh out loud). She’s like ‘Ain’t nothing wrong with this girl, she need some water and rest… Pull up the car!’ LOL “I’m like still in shock. I’ve never passed out before. Think it was the nyquil too. I felt weird when I woke up. This has been the day from hell. I’m done with the second IV. I just want to get in the bed and lay with (son) Julez. That’s all I want. The singer later confirmed she had been released following treatment, writing: “I’m out! yay!… they let me go….. Rest. Water. Rest. Water.”
For the March 2009 Issue of GQ, the magazine took the liberty of interviewing its 10 most stylish men. On the list were hip hop's elite Kanye West, T.I. and Justin Timberlake. (Yes J.T. is Hip Hop-->In case you didn't catch him on BET!) And each of them gave style tips to the Swagg Impaired.
“At photo shoots, people are always tryingto put that fucking Day-Glo suit on me: ‘Kanye West is gonna wear this Day-Glo suit.’ No, Kanye West is not! I might wear a Day-Glo pocket square. Or socks. But I’m a normal human being! Kanye West is not your hanger. With this outfit here, I wasn’t trying to say anything—it’s just what appealed to me. It’s instinct: color. Fabric. The way it feels on you. I feel like the outfit was a 95 percenter. I had on the mid-cut Common Projects. But as soonas I got home, I’m looking at the low-cut Common Projects, and I’m like, ‘That would’ve looked better. Maybe they can do something with that in Photoshop.’”
“Every morning, I start with my shoes. Usually, I have a pair that I just know I wanna wear, and from there I put my shirt with my shoes, my pants with my shirt, my belt with my shoes and my shirt. I have real basic, old-school, classic style, homey. I’m still a Polo kid. I still like my pants to fit a certain way. I got first-grade pictures of me in suits. So I guess the fact that more formal stuff like blazers is acceptable in hip-hop these days…I could take a little credit for that.”
Justin Timberlake can—and will—wear nearly anything. But he’s discerning. He’ll sport a trench coat, for example, but only if it fits just right. “You don’t want to look like Inspector Gadget,” he says. And as an L.A. guy, he loves a T-shirt. These days he goes for simple graphic ones that can be dressed up or down. His vintage tees, though, have mostly gone the way of his trucker hats. “I used to have an amazing collection,” he says, “but Jess and my cousin Rachael have pretty much grabbed them all.”
This is my FIRST Chrihanna Post.....not for lack of interest but because NO ONE knows the Truth. And I believe there are always 3 sides to any story- His, Hers & the Truth.
Words cannot begin to express how sorry and saddened I am over what transpired. I am seeking the counseling of my pastor, my mother and other loved ones and I am committed, with God’s help, to emerging a better person. Much of what has been speculated or reported on blogs and/or reported in the media is wrong. While I would like to be able to talk about this more, until the legal issues are resolved, this is all I can say except that I have not written any messages or made any posts to Facebook, on blogs or any place else. Those posts or writing under my name are frauds.
This incident has attracted alot of attention and some are saying it is the end of his career<--which I doubt.Many of his endorsers have dissociated themselves from the star, but I feel he'll have one hell of a comeback.
MTV is doing a documentary on this once fairy tale relationship.

Being the bully he is, 50 has yet again subliminally--well directly--took a shot at yet another rapper. After tarninshing Rick Ross's career last week, throwing Foxy Brown in the cross, 50 has picked on his friend/adversary, Kanye West once again.
I know I'm late as a mofo...but um---> No one on the net will break it down like MOI!
The highlight of the Grammy's for me, other than the scandals, was that fellow New Orleanian Weezy F Baby was nominated for 8 Grammy's, two of which he competed with himself for, and walked away with FOUR! And he was there with no one other than Nivea, his girlfriend.
The city was blazin for ya Wayne--on 504 Radio. Lil Weeziana
T.I. arrived with his fiancee', Tiny, who rocked this awesome Herve Ledger dress.
T.I. And Justin Timber Lake
And the crew that I have dubbed The Grammy Family- Kanye, Hov, Weezy, and T.I. did their first ever, live performance, of the Grammy Award Winning song, Swagga Like Us ft an obviously pregnant, M.I.A. .....She's a soldier, because yesterday was her due day and she swagged it out! The Grammy Family- Swagga Like Us
Jennifer Hudson also walked away with a Grammy for best R & B album, for her self entitled album.
With all the beautiful things that ensued last night, the award show was damn near over shadowed by the drama of Chris Brown being arrested for fighting his girlfriend, Rihanna. Here's video of Chris turning himself in:
Although details are scarce at this point and the authority's wouldn't release the name of te victim, it was clear to many of us that it was Rihanna. Chris and Rihanna were both nominated and scheduled to perform last night, but both seperately withdrew. So as I get it, I'll let you hit it!
This past year has been nothing less than an amazing balancing act for Rap Superstar T.I.. Tip has managed to balance a hectic tour schedule for his multiplatinum album Paper Trail, completed over 1000 hours of community service, dedicate time to his family, film an MTV documentary and manage several business- including Grand Hustle Records. This type of showmanship and success has led to rumors swirling about T.I. becoming the next president of Atlantic Records since the promotion of executive Julie Greenwald to chairman and chief operating officer of the label. This is what T.I. had to say when confronted by Sway of MTV news.
This beef with 50 & Ross has been all the buzz this week. 50 actually merked Ross's career, by airing out his personal life and exposing him as a fake. Ross responded with a a video for his 50 diss, Mafia Music.
Which was a lame response.
Ex-G Unit artist The Game gave his 2cents on Kube93, with Fast Eddie Francis.
