Her Milkshake Brings All the Cops to the (Jail)Yard
Singer Kelis was arrested early Friday morning in Miami Beach after screaming racial obscenities at two female police officers who were posing as prostitutes.
The officers were working an undercover operation in South Beach, when cops say Kelis started screaming racial slurs at the women. She continued screaming and rushed toward them, and had to be restrained by friends, a police report said. According to the report, Kelis' "actions caused people walking by to stop and form a crowd. The sidewalk was blocked by the disturbance, causing people to walk in the street and causing traffic to stop."
Kelis, the wife of rapper Nas, was charged with two misdemeanor charges of disorderly conduct and for resisting arrest.
Radio Station Shells Out $19K For Bobby Brown's Release From Jail
After three nights in the county jail Bobby Brown is a free man, thanks to a DC radio station that paid Brown's late child support payments and court fees.
According to Associated Press reports, WashingtonD.C. station Hot 99.5 FM agreed to spring the jailed Brown, provided that he spend a week working at the station as an employee. The station sprang into action after several days of on-air talks about Brown's situation, accompanied by negotiation with one of Brown's attorneys, who also hosts a program for Hot 99.5, "The Kane Show."
"In exchange for the money, he agreed to be an employee of our radio station for one week, where he will discuss what he did wrong and how he could turn his life around," Kane told the AP. "We are going to have a very open and candid conversation."
Brown was released on Wednesday night (February 28) at approximately 7:45 p.m. He was jailed on Sunday (February 25) for failing to make a court appearance and pay child support to Kim Ward, the mother of two of his teenage children. A judge ordered that Brown be held in the Norfolk County jail in Dedham until he paid $19,150 in court fees and child support payments. Brown was arrested while watching his daughter's cheerleading competition at a local high school.
Beginning Monday, Brown will appear on the Washington D.C. morning show with Kane. He is also obligated to make public appearances for the radio station.
"Once Friday rolls around, he's done and released - and he's on his own," Kane said.

N.O.R.E. Speaks On Jay-Z, Def Jam, New Album & More
Noreaga, as he was formerly known on Tommy Boy Records, has been known to many as N.O.R.E. since his move to Def Jam. After months of silence from the label, N.O.R.E. decided he was fed up with them and asked to be released by Def Jam. Now, he's finally speaking about what went down with Def Jam and Jay-Z, he'll also let us in on what we can expect from him and his old partner, Capone. In an interview with XXL Magazine this month, the Grimey-one speaks.
On what happened with Def Jam:
I don't want to compare them to girls, but at the end of the day when you're in a relationship with a female and you just feel like it's heading in the wrong way, it's up to you to cut it off before you get into some domestic violence or a route that you didn't want to go. There wont be a N.O.R.E. diss Jay-Z song. There will not be a N.O.R..E. diss L.A. Reid song, 'cause that's my style. [When] I leave a label, I shit on 'em. But this time, I'm going to take the grown man approach. I came and asked them for what I want. They could've easily said, "No." I asked to be released and they didn't fight me or I didn't have to hire no lawyers and I'm glad at that fact.
When asked about the album, One Fan A Day, that he's been working on over the last year:
They own that material. I left One Fan A Day, 'cause I didn't want no legal issues with Def Jam. I didn't want to come out with One Fan A Day and them to say, "We own this material." So I left records with Mariah Carey. I left records with Big Pun... I was halfway recording it and then L.A. Reid came over. I kinda altered my album 'cause I wanted him to like my shit..And I don't think that was the right way to do it.
On Jay-Z being Def Jam CEO:
I love him as a person. I love him as artist. I don't think me and him connected on a personal level as far as business go. When it came down to him sitting behind that desk, I don't think me and his vision was eye to eye. I can't turn around and I can't say that Jay-Z was paying attention to his self more than he was paying attention these other artists. I can't say that! I can't! 'Cause it makes me look corny.When asked about new material:It's time to take over the whole globe 'cause that's what I'm going to do— warm up the whole muthafuckin' globe like Al Gore and we gon call it Global Warming 11368. The 11368 is symbolic to where I come from, Lefrak City, Queens. It's strictly hardcore hip-hop. That muthafuckin gum under the table, the piece of shit you step on. It's the broken up N.O.R.E. with the slang. It's the lingo, it's the shit people learned to love me for and the shit people will love me again for.
On his relationship with longtime partner, Capone:
I'll be 100 percent honest because the world needs to know this. When Capone came home [from jail], he was a different individual. When your homeboy gets locked up, he starts thinking different and he becomes a different person. I became a different person. I was making the money and holding it down for C-N-N. I set it up for him to live lavish and I didn't make $30 million a year. Name another person who came home to a Lexus, and he didn't like a Lexus so he skated in a Lexus and got a Mercedes Benz. I did that shit out the kindness of my heart. C-N-N didn't have no budget. C-N-N, we got signed for $5,000 homeboy. That's the God's honest truth. We signed away our publishing. We didn't even know what publishing was. When he came home, not only did I hire him lawyers to get his publishing back the same way I did, but I also gave him 50 percent of my company, Thugged Out Militainment. But now, we got to learn who each other is. Like, we squashing it and we doing the Capone and Noreaga thing. We got twelve deals on the table and I'm not signing one of them until I know who he is and he's starting to know who I am
