The Dirty Laundry
World War Waka Flocka
Waka just can’t seem to get away from trouble! He’s one of four people being questioned by police after a shooting on the eastside of Charlotte, although police say he’s not a suspect. But they are investigating what part he and his crew played in the shootout. He reportedly stopped at the Car Stereo Warehouse on Independence yesterday afternoon to get some upgrades to his tour bus, but instead a group of guys drove into the parking lot and started shooting. One person was shot in the shoulder! Police are still trying to figure out what happened.
Did Lil’ Kim Really Sell 113,000 Copies “Black Friday?”
I’m trying to figure out if Lil’ Kim is lying about how many copies of her mixtape she sold. She’s claiming that her “Black Friday” mixtape sold 113,000 copies at $10 a pop through PayPal. The Queen B tweeted that this makes her the “Number-one seller on PayPal ever.” I highly doubt that. But if you did order the mixtape, you’ll have to wait for it to come in the mail, there aren’t any downloads! Men lie, women lie, numbers don’t…supposedly.
Lil’ Wayne Is Now A Guinness World Record Holder
Lil’ Wayne’s numbers are saying that he’s more popular than popular cookies! Weezy went head-to-head against Oreo cookies to see who could bag the Guinness World Record for the most Facebook “Likes” to a post in 24 hours. After 24 hours Oreo received 114, 000 likes and Wayne got 588,000!
