M.O.P. Planning A Porn Movie

You may be waiting a new album from M.O.P., the duo of Billy Danze and Lil Fame has another project in mind.

Billy Danze, one-half of the group, recently revealed that their next project in the works is not an album but rather a porn flick aptly titled Slammed. According to Billy, Slammed was so "rough" that they actually had to tone it down.


"It's about when you catch a chick cheating and you can't believe that you're seeing your girl's ass get busted…whatever….But we had to take some of the violence out though. It got a little too crazy."

Check out the video of Danze talking about the project

Timbaland Named Songwriter Of The Year At ASCAP Awards

Timbaland took home the Songwriter of the Year Award last night (April 9) at the 25th Annual ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers) Pop Music Awards in Los Angeles, CA.

Timbo won the coveted Songwriter of the Year award for his contributions to nine award-winning songs, including "The Way I Are" featuring Keri Hilson and DOE, "Give It To Me" featuring Justin Timberlake and Nelly Furtado, Omarion's "Ice Box," Fabolous' "Make Me Better," Furtado's "Say It Right" and JT's "My Love," "Summer Love/Set The Mood "Until The End of Time," and "What Goes Around...Comes Around."

This marks the third time Timbo has been recognized by ASCAP. He was honored twice as Rhythm and Soul Songwriter of the Year.

T.I Says "I Brought it on Myself"

Tip sat down recently with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution to grant his first interview since he was arrest for and plead guilty to three firearm charges.

T.I. spoke on numerous things, one of which was his passion for community service:


"I still have a huge amount of passion for what I do. I still have a huge amount of passion for doing what I can for the community. I still have my foundation — remembering where I came from and principles that have been instilled in me. But at the same time I also have an acknowledgment of things that need to be left behind, let go. And also an acknowledgment that there has to be an about-face. A 180-degree turn, in order for us to continue on the path to success."

The self proclained King of the South was also asked about the lessons learned from his recent trials, to which he responded,

"Patience. Just a lot of patience. If I can sit at home all day and wait on people to bring me what I need. Wait on getting permission to be able to do this and do that it's not as serious as I used to make it sometimes. Sometimes it was like, 'If I don't get this right now I'm just going to lose it'...When you're going 350 mph it tends to be that way. But when you are stopped — halted — not slowed down, but halted, you figure 'Well I could have just slowed down. I didn't have to be stopped.' I thought it was bad just to slow down. Now I see in me being stopped, I could have done this, been this, myself, instead of being forced to do it."

T.I. also discussed getting married. While he doesn't plan to set a public date, he did not discount the possibility.

In addition the rapper has a son on the way, due May 25th. Keeping with the topic, he addressed the idea of explaining to his children about the wrongs he has done:


"If they say something like that I'm prepared to deal with it: 'I also had to pay the price, for all of the things that I did. And you're going to pay the price for what you just did. Come see me.'"

Finally, T.I. talked about the night his friend and Grand Hu$tle employee Philant Johnson was killed next to him. "I've had bullets whiz by me before then. The scariest day?...Hmm. I mean, this past situation ranks high up there. The night of the awards ranks very high up there on the list.," he said, referring to the night he was arrested.

"It was sort of like a, well, you remember the [last] Super Bowl, right? You know Jeremy Shockey? He broke his leg. He had to sit up in the press box and watch. He couldn't help his team win. He couldn't play. The greatest, most talked-about, most publicized Super Bowl in our time and he's sitting watching; instead of actually being able to participate. Terrible... And I know, I know, I brought it on myself."

IHH TV: Jermaine Dupri Announces TAG Records




JD announces TAG Records, the new venture between Island Def Jam and Proctor & Gamble.

Like Jordan I'm not really feeling this move. What exactly does this mean?

Each new artist gets an unlimited supply of body spray?
You have to mention Tag in at lease one verse per song?
You get a coupon for a free "tube" of body spray for every CD you buy?

All this really means is corporate America is going to be throwing money at a system that's broken. Committing vicious acts of
Payola to get there records played.


"Hey Flex if you drop bombs on this record, Tag will sponsor your next car show."
"Hey Drama Do a Gangsta Grillz for our new artist and we'll keep you laced in body spray for life."

The only person who is gonna benefit from this Deal is JD, i know they broke him off real nice to for him to agree to this.

Mother of Luke’s Daughter Seeks Unpaid Child Support

The mother of Luther “Luke” Campbell’s 20 year-old daughter Lutheria has asked that the rapper and entrepreneur’s driver’s license be suspended over nearly $39,000 in unpaid child support.

According to the Miami Herald, Davania Branch Burns feels she is entitled to the money, even though her daughter is no longer a minor. “We want him to stand up and not be a deadbeat daddy,” she said. “He needs to do the right thing. He needs to take care of his child. Why should he not pay? The ordinary working man has to pay.”

Under Florida law, any person owning child support can have their driver’s license suspended. Burns has asked for a hearing before Circuit Court Judge Joel Brown. The Herald was unable to reach Luke for comment.

Plies Hit With $10 Million Lawsuit Over Club Shooting

Five people who claim they suffered injuries after members of Plies' entourage opened fire at a Florida nightclub have filed a $10 million lawsuit against the rapper, his record label and the nightspot.

According to The Gainesville Sun, Plies performed at the 238 West nightclub for a crowd of about 1000 people in 2006 and when the venue was about to be closed his entourage opened fire resulting in the aforementioned injuries.

Plies along with four others would be arrested. The Florida bred rapper would plead no contest to a misdemeanor charge of possession of a concealed weapon.

The five victims are alleging negligence by Plies, his record label Slip-N-Slide and 238 West.

Robert Rush, Plies' lawyer, told The Gainesville Sun Tuesday that he has not seen the lawsuit.

“If they're suing [Plies], they're suing the wrong person,” said Rush. “He does not have legal liability. It is not an entertainer's job to provide security for a club where the entertainer is performing.”

50 Cent & Tony Yayo Hit With Lawsuit For Assault

The mother of Jimmy Henchman's teenage son has filed a lawsuit against 50 and Yayo.

As reported earlier, Yayo was arrested in March 2007 on assault and harassment charges for allegedly smacking the 14 year old boy on a New York street.

The boy, James Rosemond, claimed Yayo and his entourage approached him and attacked him for wearing a shirt bearing the logo of Czar Entertainment, the management company owned by his father.

Lowell Fletcher, who was with Yayo during the incident, admitted to hitting the teenager and claimed Yayo pulled him away from the boy. Fletcher stressed that Yayo didn’t touch the boy.

Fletcher would receive a nine moth sentence while Yayo plead guilty to non criminal harassment and was ordered to perform 10 days of community service.

According to The New York Daily News, James Rosemond's mother, Cynthia Reed, filed the lawsuit against Yayo this week. The lawsuit also targets Fletcher, several record companies and 50 Cent.

50 Cent was not present during the assault and was not charged.

Benjamin Brafman, 50’s lawyer, responded to the lawsuit saying Reed is looking for “a quick payday”.

The amount being sought by Reed in the lawsuit was not revealed.

13 Years Later... It's Eazy-E Day

13 years have passed since legendary Compton rapper Eazy-E died suddenly of AIDS. Today, he's remembered as one of the forefathers of gangster rap.

Two weeks after his passing, Compton Mayor Omar Bradley designated April 7 Eazy-E Day in Compton, and this Monday (April 7) marks that day, according to a report from Louisiana State University's Daily Reveille.

The late rapper is responsible for creating one of the seminal acts of the gangsta rap genre, N.W.A., along with Dr. Dre, MC Ren, the D.O.C. and Ice Cube. They achieved platinum success with their debut, Straight Outta Compton, and the individual members went on to have successful solo careers, specifically Ice Cube and Dre.

Furthermore, the group helped catapult West Coast rapper into a force in the music industry, spawning films like "Boyz N The Hood," "Menace II Society," and the parody "CB4."

In their heyday, they even gained the attention of the FBI, who issued a warning letter to the group, thanks, in part, to their controversial "F*** The Police" track.

10 days after being admitted to the hospital, Eazy-E died on March 26, 1995.

The L.A. Times Officially Retracts Tupac Story

The L.A. Times on Monday (April 7) officially retracted the controversial investigative story on Tupac’s 1994 shooting penned by reporter Chuck Philips.

Released on the paper’s website on March 17, the story implied implied that a number of music industry figures, including Sean “Diddy” Combs and Jimmy “Henchman” Rosemond, had prior knowledge of an ambush on ‘Pac at the Quad studios in Manhattan. The story was later disproved by an investigative piece published by website thesmokinggun.com.

The web site’s report pointed out that a number of documents used by Philips to source his story were actually fakes created by incarcerated conman James Sabatino. Combs and Rosemond rejected Philips story immediately after its publication and maintained that they had nothing to do with the attack on ‘Pac. After an internal investigation prompted by The Smoking Gun’s report, The L.A. Times apologized to the parties involved.

In today’s retraction, the newspaper reiterates its apology and retracts comments made in the story and later by Philips on a blog and during an online chat. “To the extent these publications could be interpreted as creating the impression that Combs was involved in arranging the attack, The Times wishes to correct that misimpression, which was neither stated in the article nor intended,” the paper said.

Statements in the article suggesting that Diddy was informed of the ambush by Sabatino prior to the incident were also specifically retracted.

Jay-Z & Beyonce Tie The Knot

Jay-Z and Beyonce reportedly tied the knot in his Manhattan penthouse yesterday (April 4) night.

According to People Magazine, trucks were spotted delivering food, candelabras and flowers to the rappers house most of Friday.

In the evening, the couple's friends and family including Kelly Rowland and actress Gwyneth Paltrow were spotted arriving at the penthouse.

An unidentified close friend to the couple confirmed the wedding.

“It happened earlier this evening,” the friend said. “Jay wanted it to be a really private affair -- close friends and family.”

The couple, who have been dating since 2002, have not released an official announcement about the wedding.

Gossip Blogger Perez Hilton also breaks down the meaning behind the "IV" tattoos seen on Jay and B's ring fingers.

Lil Jon Launches Wine Label, Status Of New Album Still Up In Air

Lil Jon has launched his own wine label called Little Jonathan Winery.

Jon revealed to The Associated Press recently that Little Jonathan Winery offers a vast selection of wines including chardonnay and merlot.

“It kind of came out of nowhere,” Jon explained. “We were just going to do some private label stuff (for parties) and we did it, and people were like, `Hey, it's pretty nice.”

Jon , who already owns an energy drink company called Crunk Juice, said he chose to not to associate his stage name with his wine label because he wants to take a more serious approach.

“I wanted [to] make it just a little bit more upscale than regular 'Lil Jon’,” said Jon. “This is not no ghetto Boone's Farm; this is some real wine.”

Earlier this year, Lil Jon's record label, TVT Records, filed for bankruptcy.

The rapper claims his oft-delayed solo album Crunk Rock is complete and that he is waiting for his label to get back on its feet so he can release it.

“I want to get it out ASAP, but TVT has to figure out their business, and that's about all I can say,” said Jon.



50 Cent Heads To Court To Kick His Baby Mama Out Of Long Island House

The back and forth between 50 Cent and the mother of his son continues as the G-Unit honcho will reportedly ask a judge today (April 3) to have her evicted from his house in Long Island, New York.

50 and Shaniqua Tompkins, his ex-girlfriend and the mother of his son Marquis, were embroiled in a bitter legal battle over child support payments last year.

50 was initially ordered to pay $25,000 a month in child support to Tompkins but a judge would cut it down to $6,700 in February this year on condition that Tompkins used the money to find a new residence.

According to Radar Magazine, 50 claims that Tompkins has not attempted to find a new residence and is taking advantage because he pays all the bills for the Long Island home.

Tompkins lawyer, Paul Catsandonis, plans to argue today that his client cannot be evicted because by definition she is not a tenant. Tompkins doesn’t pay any rent and there was no lease agreement.

Catsandonis will also emphasize Tompkins has to take care of two children who reside in the house, Marquis and her daughter by another man. Both children also attend schools in the neighborhood.

Tompkins also claims that 50 promised her the house.

A representative for 50 Cent refused to comment on the case.


MC Breed Arrested for Failure to Pay Child Support

MC Breed was picked up by authorities in his hometown of Flint, MI on Thursday afternoon (April 3) for failure to pay child support. Breed, who is perhaps best known for his track "Gotta Get Mine" enjoyed moderate success during the early and mid ‘90’s.

Since his debut in 1991, he has amassed an extensive catalog and counts renowned MC’s such as Too $hort, Tupac and Scarface amongst his collaborators.

According to The Flint Journal, Breed was picked up on a warrant at around 4:00 p.m. on Thursday by Genesee County Sheriff’s deputies as him and a film crew left the Music Planet record store on Carpenter Rd. Police knew where to find the rapper, who now lives in Atlanta, after he mentioned that he would be signing autographs at Music Planet during a previous interview with The Flint Journal.

Authorities say Breed owes $220,000 in back child support. Because of the arrest, Breed missed a 7:00 p.m. show at the Perani Arena with headliner Lil Wayne. The arrest is not the first of its kind for Breed.

The MC previously served eight months in prison on a parole violation related to a separate child support case.

T.I. Begins Community Service At Atlanta High School

Atlanta bred rapper T.I. began his 1,000 hours of community service by visiting a local high school yesterday (April 4).

Last week, T.I. plead guilty to various weapons charges as part of a plea deal.

Under the agreement, T.I. was ordered to spend at least 1,000 hours over the next year speaking against drugs, guns and gangs to “at-risk youth”.

If he fulfills the obligations of the community service, he will only receive a year and a day behind bars when he is sentenced in March 2009.

If he doesn’t abide by the plea agreement and fails to stay out of trouble, he faces up to over 3 years behind bars.

According to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, T.I. spoke to Stockbridge High School students Friday afternoon using his recent brush with the law as a warning.

“Hopefully the mistakes I've made can come across to you and you can see where I went wrong, so you don't have to go down the same road,” T.I. told a gymnasium filled with 10th and 11th graders.

T.I. is expected to make more visits to various schools in the coming months. Hours after his guilty plea last week, the rapper's attorney revealed that he has received numerous requests for T.I.

Jay-Z Strikes $150 Million Deal With Live Nation, Set To Launch Record Label

Jay-Z is reportedly close to finalizing a $150 million deal with concert promoter Live Nation to launch a venture called Roc Nation.

According to The New York Times, the venture is part of a ten year deal which will finance Jay-Z’s record label, his upcoming tours and various endorsements and investments. Jay-Z will split his profits with Live Nation.

As part of the deal, Jay-Z would have to drop three albums during the 10 years. Each advance for the albums will be $10 million. The rapper’s current co-headlining tour with singer Mary J Blige is also part of the agreement.

The deal, which will be announced this week, is one of the biggest music contracts ever awarded.

Live Nation chairman Michael Kohl said that Jay-Z's business acumen is one the major reasons they entered business with the Brooklyn bred rapper.

Last year, Jay-Z sold his Rocawear clothing line to the Iconix Brand Group Inc for $204 million in cash. He also acquired the Artful Dodger clothing line for $15 million and expanded his 40/40 franchise.

Earlier this year, Jay-Z began his own advertising agency with mogul Steve Stoute.

“What [Jay-Z’s] done has kind of mirrored what we want to do and where we think we’re going,” said Cohl.

Jay-Z, who stepped down as CEO at Def Jam last year , still owes the label one more album as an artist. The album is likely to drop this year.
