TI Interview

T.I. On Dropping Alfamega When He Found Out He Was Working With The Government & Rumors Of Him Being A Snitch! "I Cant Afford To Be Assoicated With That" + Movie Roles He Would Never Do Such As Homosexual

WTF Alert: This some STR8 Bull$h!t...Police Brutality

Were they taunting the police or did the cops rough them up. You be the judge
This is how one of our viewers are reporting it "My nephew, Brian Wyke, was recently brutalized on video by two armed W police officers from the Barnesville Police Department in Barnesville, Georgia. He and his cousins and friends were walking down the street together and the cops singled him out (probably because they are still upset that his older brother outran them and they cannot find him) and proceeded to provoke him. It all goes downhill from that point on. He is pepper sprayed and punched (all while he is hand-cuffed. "

Rick Ross To Sue Rick Ross

Rick Ross may have a saving grace in the face that they used to call dude “Freeway” Ricky Ross back in the day. As far as I know, he was never called “Rick Ross” like the rapper. I don’t know…interesting.

(AllHipHop News) The real Rick Ross could face off against the rapper Rick Ross (William Leonard Roberts II) in court this summer, over the usage of the name “Rick Ross.”

Rick Ross controlled thousands of workers at the height of his power in the mid-1980’s, who dealt millions of dollars worth of cocaine each day.

In 1996, Ross was sentenced to life in prison for attempting to purchase over 100 kilograms of cocaine.

Ross was released from prison in 2006 and attempted to reclaim his name.

Ross claims that Miami rapper Rick Ross (William Leonard Roberts II) signed a multimillion dollar deal in 2006, based on his image and likeness as a drug dealer.

Rick Ross claims that he protested the use of his name in 2006 by sending cease-and-desist letters to Def Jam, which were allegedly ignored.

Sources told that Ross’ lawsuit will claim that the rapper stole his identity and based it on Rick Ross’ real drug dealer image in the black community.

According to sources, Ross is planning to sue Def Jam, Universal, William “Rick Ross” Roberts II and others.

The rapper Rick Ross (William Leonard Roberts II) is preparing to release his fourth album Telfon Don.

Suge Knight Accused of Ordering a Hit

One day after Suge Knight was released from jail last week, the rap mogul allegedly masterminded a murder plot ... this according to legal documents.

An L.A. County Superior Court judge has ordered Suge to stay at least 100 yards away from a Los Angeles area man after an allegedly frightening encounter this past Friday.

According to legal docs filed Monday, the man claims Suge "had 8 guys come to my house and told them to get me or kill me."

As TMZ previously reported, Suge was arrested Thursday morning for assault with a deadly weapon. It's unclear if the man who got the restraining order was involved in the prior incident -- though he claims Suge later told him that "he was out now and going to take my life."

Suge is ordered to appear in court to respond to the allegations on June 8.

And just for fun, here's the list of her former attorneys in chronological order (you're welcome): Dorene Marcus, Burton Hochberg, Michael Berger, David Stein, John Rokacz, Rosaire Nottage, Andrew Leinoff, and Michael Bruck.

WWW: Why Can't Successful Black Women Find A Black Man

We will be discussing why successful Black women can't find a Black man today for Working Women Wednesday inside The Morning Maddhouse on Power 98!

Tune in for the Women Only Forum and the interview with Jimi Izrael.

Get in on the discussion by calling 704.570.WPEG!

Here is a clip from Nightline's roundtable.

Sherri Shepherd, co-host of ABC's "The View," and Jacque Reid, star of VH1's "Let's Talk About Pep," will debate "CSI" star Hill Harper, and Jimi Izrael, author of "The Denzel Principle" on why many successful black women cannot find a man.

Mashonda Tells Swizz "Pay Up!"

The ink’s not even dry on their divorce yet, but hip-hop producer — and soon-to-be Mr. Alicia Keys — Swizz Beatz and his ex-wife are heading back to court.
In papers filed in Manhattan Supreme Court, Mashonda Dean says the man who officially became her ex-husband two weeks ago already owes her $334,000 in missed payments. “I so much wanted both of us to get on with our lives and maintain our respect for one another, but he now shows that his priorities and sense of responsibility are screwed up,” R&B singer Dean said.

Dean’s lawyer, Bernard Clair, called the nonpayment “particularly troubling” because of reports that Beatz bought a seven-carat engagement ring for Keys earlier this year and that they’re moving into a $14.5 million duplex penthouse on Crosby Street. Beatz told The Post his ex’s allegations that he owes $325,000 in equitable distribution and $9,000 in alimony and child support are “inaccurate” and “overblown,” and said that he’s gone “above and beyond” to provide for her and their son, Kasseem Jr., 13.

He said he’d agreed to pay Dean more than the judge required and much more than his lawyer recommended — he even had to sign court papers acknowledging that he was going against his attorney’s advice.

“I gave over what the judge was recommending to give. I gave her $700,000 up front, because I thought $200,000 wasn’t enough for what she wanted to do. I still get spit in my face for it,” he said. He suggested that the subsequent payments had been ready to go when he discovered “she’d been selling all my stuff out of my house.”
Clair said the only items his client sold were some remote-controlled vehicles the producer had left behind after movers took out his belongings.”

The two sides are due back in court next month. The 31-year-old will reportedly tie the knot with the stunning “Empire State of Mind” singer Keys this summer.

It’s hard for us to believe that Swizzy is a deadbeat, poor Mashonda just might be a wee bit bitter, huh???

The insider told, "Back then Grace was about 200 pounds. After that she lost weight, I suspect by some sort of surgery . . . Once she lost the weight, she dumped her husband and stole Usher away from Tameka."

Crazy World: Cop Shoots Himself, Blames It On 2 Black Men

"Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey said that 46-year-old Sgt. Robert Ralston reported he was shot by a suspect on April 5, but an investigation has revealed the sergeant actually shot himself. The 21-year veteran of the force has been suspended with intent to dismiss.

Sleeping With a Married Person: Is It Worth Your Life?

"A man has been convicted of trying to pour acid down the throat of his victim in revenge for his relationship with a married woman. Mohammed Vakas, 26, was convicted of conspiracy to murder Awais Akram, 25. Mr Akram managed to avoid swallowing the acid, but suffered horrific burns over most of his body and was not expected to survive. He was blinded in one eye, lost both his ears and was left widely scarred by drain cleaner fluid which is 91% sulphuric acid.The attack was launched because of his relationship with Sadia Khatoon, a woman he met on Facebook. She is the sister of Vakas. He was beaten, kicked and stabbed twice yards from his home. He said: "This person came in front of me and he had a bottle in his hand. He was saying 'Open your mouth, open your mouth.' "He started pouring acid on top of my head. I felt a burning sensation. I asked why I was being attacked and I could not hear clearly, but I could hear the words 'Sadia, Sadia, Sadia.'""

'Bruce Leroy' Cleared in Domestic Violence Case

Taimak Guarriello was arrested for felony domestic violence on April 25 in San Diego, after cops responded to a call at the alleged victim's home.

Cops tell us the woman claimed Taimak slapped her in the face and injured one of her thumbs. As first reported, Taimak was arrested and booked in San Diego County Jail. He bonded out later that day.

Eventually the case was turned over to the San Diego City Attorney's Office, which ultimately reviewed the case and declined to file charges against Taimak.

We contacted Taimak's rep for comment who told us, "Taimak and his fiancée are fine. There was a miscommunication on what went down, and all charges were completely dropped."

Lawrence Taylors Defense: It Was Jergens Only

Sources directly connected with Lawrence Taylor tell TMZ the NFL legend's defense to rape is masturbation.

We're told Lawrence will not deny he was in the same room as the 16-year-old prostitute, but his lawyer will argue Lawrence did not have sexual intercourse -- an element of third degree rape.

As one source put it, Lawrence engaged in a "masturbatory act" and that was it.

According to New York law, "A person is guilty of rape in the third degree when ... he or she engages in sexual intercourse with another person less than seventeen years old."

Interestingly ... in the criminal complaint against the alleged pimp, authorities allege Taylor engaged in "sex acts" but there is not mention of sexual intercourse -- a requirement for 3rd degree rape.

As TMZ first reported, a condom was found in Taylor's hotel room, but sources say Taylor's lawyers will argue the condom wasn't his and he didn't use it.

Taylor's lawyer, Arthur Aidala, has said flatly, his client did not have sex with the girl.

Gucci Free: Released From Prison Today!

Hmmm, Gucci ain't bad looking now that he's been on that prison diet!

"First and foremost, I would like to thank my legal counsel, Dwight Thomas and Michael Holmes, for their excellent representation, as well as my label, Asylum and Warner Brothers Records, for sticking with me through my situation and helping me through my time behind bars," Gucci said. "Most importantly, I want to thank all of my fans for their support while I have been away. Your letters and your words of encouragement helped me make it through. None of my success would be possible without you. I have made some mistakes in my life that have hurt a lot of people who care about me. I have worked very hard to get past them, but those mistakes have brought me to where I am today, and they will not be repeated."
"These past six months have been a difficult time, but fortunately I have learned a great deal from my experience," he added. "I was able to do a great deal of soul searching; I am coming out with a new attitude towards life. Unfortunately, my incarceration also came at a pivotal point in my career, just as my first major-label album was dropping. I was forced to miss what should have been one of the proudest moments of my life. This is something that I will make sure never happens again. My time in jail was trying, but I grew from it and am now a stronger and better person. I want to continue on a positive track and truly focus on being a role model to my fans and my community. I am looking towards the future with a newfound respect and appreciation for the law and a strong dedication to my music and my career."

"I have already begun to make positive strides towards the future," he said. "I have launched a new label, 1017 Brick Squad Records in affiliation with Asylum/ Warner Bros Records, and I am working with a new team. I am looking forward to getting back to business and to start making hits. I am extremely excited about my new album, The Appeal, which will be dropping at the end of the summer. Over the course of 2010, 1017 Brick Squad Records will also be releasing albums from my artist Wacka Flocka Flame, as well as my group Brick Squad, which features Wacka, OJ Da Juiceman and myself. In July, I will be heading out on a nationwide tour, hitting venues across the country and continuing the movement."

D. Wayde's Wife Doesn't Make Court

Earlier today, Siohvaughn Wade had blown off a court hearing in Chicago regarding her ongoing divorce war with the Miami Heat star -- so the judge threatened to issue a body attachment order unless she showed up in the afternoon.

The deadline came and went -- and Siohvaughn never showed.

Now, the judge has issued the order -- which means cops will now seek her out, take her into custody ... and deliver her to the judge.

As we previously reported, Siohvaughn has made several sensational claims about Dwyane -- most recently accusing the NBA star of engaging in "sexual foreplay" with his new girlfriend in front of his kids.

Dwyane -- who was present at court today -- has denied all of Siohvaughn's allegations.

Tiger Getting Divorced???

TMZ has learned Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren are trying to strike agreements on child custody and division of assets ... and then quietly and quickly file divorce papers to end their marriage.

Sources very familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... the most important thing for both Tiger and Elin is keeping the terms of the divorce confidential. We're told Tiger has a team -- partly based in NYC -- that is working on the division of assets. But ... as TMZ first told you ... the key player is West Palm Beach lawyer Thomas Sasser, an expert in child custody agreements that involve more than one jurisdiction.

Sources say one of the options is to actually file for divorce in Sweden -- Elin wants to move there with the kids and Tiger would have to submit to the jurisdiction of the court. Wherever the divorce is filed, the plan is to keep the custody and property settlement agreements out of the court file. We're told the quicker and quieter the divorce, the better.

The big issue, we're told -- Tiger wants either custody or visitation, and assurance that he can go into court and enforce the agreement if Elin violates it. We're told Tiger wants the option to go to either a Swedish or American court to enforce the custody agreement.

And sources say ... the couple has not reached agreement on any of the major issues ... at least not yet.

Is Eddie Done Being A Deadbeat Dad?

After acting a donkey for the first couple years of his daughter Angel’s life, Eddie Murphy has finally come around. Ironically enough, it was while doing press for his recurring role as Donkey in the Shrek franchise’s latest installment Shrek Forever After for the Tribeca Film Festival that Eddie came around. Pop the hood for details.

Once upon a time you couldn’t even get Eddie Murphy to admit he fathered a child with Mel B. Then when a paternity test made it hard to deny, he still wanted nothing to do with the baby because he claimed Scary Spice tried to trap him with her fertile snapper… But it seems the actor has finally come around to welcoming little Angel into his life.

“While promoting ‘Shrek Forever After,’ Eddie talked a lot about his kids,” says a source. “Ever since, he’s been making efforts with Mel to get to know their daughter.”

Our source says he hosted a bash at his L.A. compound last week, and Brown, her husband, Stephen Belafonte, and Angel, her 3-year-old daughter with Murphy, were in attendance.

“They’ve both said some really nasty things about each other to the press,” says our source. “So needless to say, some guests were shocked.”

We hear the “Dreamgirls” actor had an additional push to make nice.

“Eddie’s ex-wife Nicole helped them reconcile their issues, too,” the insider said of Murphy’s ex-wife, with whom he has six kids. “Angel is Eddie’s youngest child, and Nicole wanted her children to know her. That helped Eddie to come around and get past all the animosity he had toward Mel.

“All of the children were there for the party, and it appeared that they’re one big happy, blended family,” the source added.

Mel B wasn’t Eddie’s only ex in attendance at the bash. The actor also seemed to be making an effort to get reacquainted with former girlfriend Shaun Robinson, the “Access Hollywood” host he dated before Brown.

Says the source: “At one point, they were in the kitchen together and seemed pretty friendly. There were whispers at the party that maybe they’d get back together someday.”

Since this whole Eddie Murphy family reunion seems to be a group effort, can somebody please get a comb and brush and stage an intervention with Mel B. about that poor child’s head???

The Final Papers: Swizz Beats & Mashonda

We've learned the judge in Mashonda and Swizzy's divorce has finally signed the papers. So the divorce is really final at this point, as of last Friday. Both Mashonda and Swizz Beatz signed their papers months ago, but it took a minute for the final papers to get signed by the judge.

And now that it's really all over, we hear Mashonda's writing a book about "her life" with NY Times best selling author Aliya S. King. I can only image what will all be in that....

The above pic is an outtake from her new photoshoot with photographer Robert Ector.

We also hear that Mashonda has turned down a few reality shows. The most recent one was with VH1 where R&B chick Oliva and stylist Misa Hylton would have been her cast members.

Locs Keep Him In Lonely Lockup

Kendall Gibson would seem to be one of Virginia’s most dangerous prisoners.

For more than 10 years he has lived in segregation at the Greensville Correctional Center, spending at least 23 hours every day in a cell the size of a gas station bathroom. In a temporary home for the worst of the worst — inmates too violent or disruptive to live among the rest of society’s outcasts — he has been a permanent fixture.

He is there, he says, not for his crimes but for a crime he will not commit — a crime against God.
The only thing imposing about Gibson is his long black dreadlocks, resting on the front of his shoulders so they won’t drag the ground as he shuffles along in his orange jumpsuit.

It is his hair — winding locks he considers a measure of his Rastafarian faith — that makes him a threat, according to Virginia Department of Corrections Operating Procedure No. 864.1.

The rule took effect on Dec. 15, 1999. Inmates had two choices: cut their hair no longer than their collars and shave their beards, or be placed in administrative segregation.

In the beginning, Gibson was among as many as 40 inmates who opted for confinement over cutting. By 2003, when a handful of the inmates filed a federal lawsuit against the department over their detention, 23 remained in segregation.

The lawsuit failed. Some cracked under the pressure of constant isolation with no visits from loved ones, educational or religious programs or commissary. Some went home.

Today, it’s difficult to tell exactly how many remain in isolation. The Department of Corrections won’t volunteer the information, but has confirmed 10 names given to The Associated Press by a group of Rastafarian inmates.

Not everyone can handle it, Gibson says. For those weak in mind or spirit, the walls can easily close in on them.

“People always ask how I can smile in a place so negative,” he says. The Rastafarian God, Jah, “is my answer. Without Jah in my life I wouldn’t be able to handle it.”

Dr. Murray May Ask to Delay Preliminary Hearing

Dr. Conrad Murray's legal team claims it may not be ready for the preliminary hearing setting next month, because they still have not received the full criminal file on the Michael Jackson manslaughter case.

Miranda Sevcik, spokesperson for Murray's lawyer, Ed Chernoff, tells TMZ they have only received 3,500 pages of discovery. Sevcik cites a news report in which the D.A.'s office claims it has "hundreds of thousands of pages of material."

But a D.A. spokesperson told TMZ on Friday that the statement that there were "hundreds of thousands" of pages was their error ... and in fact there are only "thousands of pages" and the defense has received "the bulk of it."

Sevcik's response ... "It's odd. It seems like an awfully big miscalculation."

Sevcik says if the defense team does not get all the docs soon, they may ask to delay the preliminary hearing setting -- set for June 14.
