Giving you, the fans what you were hoping for we made sure we was in the midst of it all. We have EXCLUSIVE footage of Ne-Yo singing happy birthday to Ciara. And might I add, Ne-Yo has dispelled all the rumors of his ‘HOMO’ tendencies because rumor has it that this is the new celeb couple. These two were truly enjoying themselves that night but we will soon find out if the two have decided to put out an official statement.

Ciara rolled up in a Bentley Limousine with pearl and navy blue two-tone paint with 22 inch alloyed will and she stepped out looking Uber-Chic and fabulous . Ciara (the media magnet) was her nice polite self to the media and it was then time for the party to begin.

The over all night was grand ! Bottle were poppin and the beat wasn’t stopping on this girls party.

Ciara’s actually blew out the candles in the club which capped off this event very nicely.

A Big thanks to Nicole Garner & Cyrstal Betts. You girl’s did your thing !

T.I. Out on $3Million Dollars Bail**Exclusive**

October 26, 2007

As highly anticipated as the new forth –coming Jay-Z album ‘American Gangster’- The verdict is in, T.I. will be released on bail today Friday, Oct 26, 2007. On the same day as Genarlow Wilson (The infamous 17- Year old boy that was accused of raping a young girl 15-years old.), was released from jail, T.I. has his freedom as well-JUST FOR THE MOMENT.

The Court room was monitored like fort Knox; with standing room only as if you were in a V.I.P line outside the 40/40 Club. You might as well hand out V.I.P passes for this one because this was the talk of the town and we have it for you here.

It would be unfair for us to add our opinion about this case but we have been doing an extensive coverage on this case. We have been interviewing entertainment heavyweights to get their perspective on what they believe this is going to be for the future of Hip-Hop.

Genarlow Wilson Freeeeee !

October 26, 2007

After years of distress and agony, The Supreme Court of Georgia ordered Friday that Genarlow Wilson be released from prison, ruling that his sentence for a teen sex conviction was cruel and unusual punishment.
I know what some of you are thinking that we have a long way to go for the legal system is at all equal. This is not a race matter, this is simply a case of the judicial system failing the youth.

He has been in state prison since November 2005 and is currently held at the Al Burruss Correctional Training Facility in Forsyth, Ga.
It wasn’t immediately clear how quickly he will be released.
If you fogot what happen , Wilson had been sentenced to 10 years in prison after being convicted in 2005 of having oral sex with a consenting 15-year-old girl when he was 17.
In a time of social injustice and malice target on the youth, this proves that the judicial system of Georgia ia making strides. But moving two steps backward, GA put in a law in small town GA –“No Sagging Law”. This law is outlandish,outdateed and needs to be overturned by the Supreme Court.
According to CNN, wilson has hope left because the judge reduced the sentence to one year and said Wilson should not be put on Georgia’s sex offender registry, as the old law required.

Under a now-changed Georgia law, Wilson was convicted of felony aggravated child molestation. Wilson was acquitted on a second charge of raping a 17-year-old girl at the party — who prosecutors maintained was too intoxicated to consent.
Now all we have to do is get the Jena 6 situation together and we can try to address the overwhleming disrespectful racial gestures that have recently been in the news.
Lets continue to make strides toward positivity……..

Mr. Untouchable-The Story of Nicky Barnes

October 26, 2007

“The worst thing they could have done was to name him ‘Mr. Untouchable,’ said Frank James-former member of Nicky Barnes crew The Council.

Some call him a legend, some call him a hero, some call him a snitch and some call him a coward.

Dame Dash may be back in the saddle with this one because, Wednesday night, in Atlanta on a cold rainy night, filled the Phipps plaza AMC movie theater with entertainment industry socialites. Packed wall to wall in a sardine like manor with standing room only was movie goers set to watch the documentary inspired by the Harlem drug addict turned drug king pin Leroy ‘Nicky’ Barnes. This is the true-life story of a junkie turned multimillionaire drug-lord.

The hour and 32 minute synopsis is a great depiction of what a story that is brought to life can look like. The director, Marc Levin makes what could have been a bad episode of cops a fully cinematic experience.

The movie is worth taking the time to watch because it can be compared to BET’s American Gangster but it is 10x better.

T.I. facing his time in court !

October 25, 2007

T.I. as you already know are in a bit of a court-room battle and the Hip Hop Community is ready to rally behind him. In a recent talk 50 Cent had with MTV, 50 cent express that there is indeed things that rappers need to watch out for.

We’re maturing. We got families; we have to take care of them. The streets should be the last of your priorities when you got so many people looking up under you. T.I. is a great friend of mine. I would think he’s more intelligent than that. Actually he is more intelligent than that. I just think he was caught in position in his career where things are moving so fast, you overlook the obvious. With him, when you’re accustomed to getting your way for so long, you don’t look at the negatives of what you may consider to be a positive situation. They literally have a hip-hop police section — enforcement specifically to monitor hip-hop and anything that’s making money urban,” Akon told MTV.

Watch what 50 cent has to say…..

T.I. Grace the cover of COMPLEX MAGAZINE !!!

Here are some excerpts from his interview in the November issue of Complex Magazine:

Given the strong “stop snitching” credo within hip-hop, what did you think of his [Frank Lucas] cooperating with authorities to shorten his 70-year prison term?
His situation was unique because he didn’t tell on no drug dealers or other criminals. He got his standards shortened by telling on crooked cops.

Is there a character in American Gangster you would parallel to your days in the trap?
I can’t even compare myself back in that day simply because it was a whole other day and age. When I was doin’ it, it was chaos. Real talk, it was easier then, too. Not taking nothing away from them ’cause they started it, but the police wasn’t hip to everything. By the time I started hustling, the police had cameras, the Internet, and forensics. [Back then] you could kill a ***** at six o’clock in the morning on his doorstep and long as nobody seen you, you good. Now you got cameras on street lights. I feel like if I was a hustler back then, I’d have a way better shot at it. People actually respected the game. Whereas when I was a hustler, a ***** would do anything for a dollar. Period.

Have you seen [Ludacris’s manager] Chaka Zulu since you had an altercation with him back in June?
I’ve seen him, but I didn’t speak to him. That situation was whatever. If you come out your face and say something, then you can expect me to go off. You should watch your mouth. I think my manager spoke to him. I got a great life and wonderful children, and I do intend to be here to guide them for the rest of their lives, and that’s what’s most important to me. Maybe when I was 18 or 19 runnin’ the streets and shootin’ pistols, but I’m not gonna blow that for one of these cats who don’t happen to live by the same principles as me.

You’re the only rapper to drop platinum albums the last two years. How can you say you don’t fit in?
When I saw Tupac talking that “Thug Life” shit, getting locked up for shooting police, and getting shot and living, that’s when I was like, Damn, them ****** is really about that shit. Now you’re just let down. This ain’t this guy that he was on this record. And nobody seems to have a problem with it. It’s a lot of fake shit in it. I like to consider myself an intelligent person, and this shit is not something of intelligence anymore. It’s getting real young and stupid, and that ain’t me.
