Soulja Boy Gets 12 Month Probation For Obstruction Charges

A judge has sentenced popular rapper Soulja Boy to a year of probation over an October 2009 incident in Henry County, Georgia.

The rapper was among a group of about 40 people who were shooting a video in an abandon house.

When police officers arrived to investigate complaints in the area, the group of people assembled fled on foot.

Soulja Boy, born DeAndre Cortez Way, was arrested and sent to the Henry County Jail, but was quickly bonded out.

The rapper admitted to the charges in court earlier this week and was sentenced to 12 months probation and given a $1,000 fine.

The arrest hasn’t slowed Soulja Boy down over the past year.

He is currently working on a book titled Teenage Millionaire, he recently wrapped up shooting on two movies with actor Nick Cannon and is producing tracks on Kanye West’s new album.

Jay-Z Sues Over Hotel Loan

Jay-Z is suing investment firm Highland Capital Management for $3.7m over a 2007 loan to help him build a hotel in Manhattan.

Hova says that when the value of the land he had bought fell, he tried to give it back to Highland to avoid repossession.

Jay-Z says the company dragged its heels costing him millions in interest.

Highland said it would defend itself against the "meritless" claims, saying the loan remained in default.

The new building was to have been called the J Hotel.

Jay-Z also claims that Highland improperly diverted funds from a reserve account he had set up to cover any environmental problems.

"This action arises out of the efforts by defendants to bleed additional funds from the plaintiff," the rapper's lawyers stated in legal documents.

"Defendants embarked on a bad faith course of conduct."

Jay-Z is seeking the damages, as well as a declaration allowing the land to be given back to Highland.

Eve Named In U.S. Senate Investigation

Eve is part of a U.S. Senate investigation into the illicit laundering of millions of foreign dollars by her former boyfriend, Teodorin Nguema Obiang.

Obiang is the son of President Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo of oil rich Equatorial Guinea, a small West African country.

Investigators claim Obiang laundered hundreds of millions of dollars in corrupt oil money and gas reserves to fund a lavish lifestyle that included a $30 million Malibu estate, multiple exotic cars, and a down payment on a Gulfstream jet.

Senate investigators are looking into a number of Obiang’s business associates and business ventures, including Sweet Pink Inc., which was reportedly launched in honor of his then girlfriend, Eve.

While they were dating, Obiang allegedly paid Microsoft founder Paul Allen $700,000 to rent his Yacht so he and Eve could take a romantic Christmas cruise.

Two lawyers are testified before the Senate on February 4th.

They are accused of orchestrating most of the deals and laundering another $100 million through Citibank and Wachovia.

Chamillionaire Reunites With Paul Wall And Drops A New Mixtape

In lieu of label politics and the current overall state of the music industry, Chamillionaire has decided to drop a new 18-track mixtape entitled Major Pain.

Despite a previous declaration not to make any further tapes, Chamillionaire realized that mixtapes serve to give him the creative freedom denied him in a structured, major label environment.

“I felt it was time to take it back to the original grind that made these major companies pay attention in the first place,” Chamillionaire said in a statement. “I don't think there is any reason why any artist with real knowledge of independent hustle, should sit and wait for any major system to work for them, but, because I am signed to a major recording label, there are still a lot of things that I would like to be able to do, that I'm not really allowed to do. Politics in this business often stand between a creative mind and the grind but I'm gonna try my best to feed my fans without getting into too much trouble.”

Part of that independent hustle will be a long-awaited reunion with early collaborator Paul Wall.

The duo released several popular albums early in their careers, such as the Source Award nominated Get Ya Mind Correct.

Their first appearance will be in Austin, Texas as headliners on March 17 for the South By Southwest tour. Other emcees slated to appear in clude Trae the Truth, Dorrough, and Chalie Boy.

As with mixtapes, Chamillionaire postulates that touring is not only an essential revenue stream for artists, but a reliable tool to promote new music.

"The lack of marketing and promo budgets in a weak economy isn't going keep me from touring to different cities and releasing music to fans that still demand it, “he explained. “That’s why I decided to start the Major Pain series and tour with Paul. It's what the fans want.”

Lil Wayne On The Cover Of Rolling Stone

Diddy Plans Wants To Start A Business School

In a recent visit to Anderson Cooper's popular CNN show AC360, Sean "Diddy" Combs revealed future plans to start a business academy.

Combs was the featured guest on the show, which was hosted by Wolf Blitzer, who was filling in for Anderson Cooper.

The topic of this segment was Diddy's image and whether or not he was a positive role model.

According to Combs, he is shedding his bad boy image to showcase his business acumen.

“I want to take on more responsibility,” Combs said during the interview. “I’m still honestly in search of how I can have the most positive effect that I can have.”

According to Combs, he is planning to open a school of business to teach budding entrepreneurs the keys to success.

The school will be located in the New York area, most likely Harlem, Combs stated.

Lil Wayne Signs On For 'We Are The World' Remake

"I've never been involved in anything like this," Lil Wayne said after he recorded his solo for the remake of "We Are the World" on Monday night at the Henson Recording Studios as part of an all-star benefit for Haitian relief. "My attitude coming out is I feel blessed and I feel like I've done something today, and that's always a good day."

With a large roster of rappers in the house for the session -- including Snoop Dogg, Kanye West, LL Cool J, Swizz Beatz, T-Pain, Wyclef Jean, Will.I.Am, Busta Rhymes, Kid Cudi, Drake, Nipsey Hussle, Bizzy Bone, Mann and others -- Wayne said he was glad hip-hop could play such a large part in the sessions, which took place 25 years almost to the day since the first recording. "I was like, 'What am I doing here?' " Wayne joked, revealing that he got to sing the part recorded by folk icon Bob Dylan on the original.

"I was like, 'You guys are real good comedians,' " he laughed. "After I did Bob Dylan's part, it kind of hit me that I guess this is way more important than I could ever imagine."

For his children, Wayne said the opportunity to be involved in such a major undertaking is something they can hold onto forever. As for his mother, he chuckled when he said that all she asked was that he get Gladys Knight's photo for her.

"I'm still overwhelmed," Weezy said , looking around the room at the galaxy of stars that ranged from Pink and Carlos Santana to Usher and Barbra Streisand. "I was like, 'Where do I fit in?' I thought my name got mixed up."

Asked how he approached the Dylan part and whether he sang or rapped it, Wayne said that was an embarrassing story, since he's not known as a singer and he just tried to do his best to make it work. "I don't know how to sing. I approached it the best way I know how, brother," he told a reporter with a smile.

When another writer asked whether he did a better job than Dylan, Wayne flashed his diamond-studded grill and said humbly, "Hell no."

Because he lives in Miami, Wayne said he learned firsthand about the devastation in Haiti from his Haitian friends who lost their children in the earthquake. "Before I go," the New Orleans native added as he left the press area, "I think it's amazing what's been done for Haiti ... but I also think it's amazing what hasn't been done for New Orleans."

50 Cent's 'Twelve' Film Sells For $2 Million

Twelve, the new Joel Schumacher movie starring 50 Cent, was recently bought at the Sundance Film Festival.

The New York Times reports that the film unit of Hannover House, an independent publisher and media company, purchased the drama for $2 million.

The flick, which is based on the 2002 novel of the same name, finds Fif portraying a Harlem drug-dealer named Lionel.

50’s character provides Gossip Girl heartthrob Chace Crawford with drugs to sell to his rich friends on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.

The G-Unit general has several other film projects in the works. He is currently filming Gun with Val Kilmer and Jekyll and Hyde—a remake of the horror classic that he will co-star in with Forest Whitaker—is in pre-production according to

Maino Readies Two Albums For 2010

Maino has followed his dreams, tasting fame and accolades, helping influence the culture. He has a platinum single, a gaggle of street bangers, fans across the world. While he has been able to enjoy his success at points, he's also had to persevere through tragedies.

In the past year, two of his friends — one of them his very best friend and business partner — were shot and paralyzed. Recently, his closest cousin committed suicide. Still, Maino has refused to let pain and grief take over his life.

The Brooklyn native has two projects coming in 2010: an EP next week and his second full-length album this summer.

"Everything is digital," he told MTV Tuesday (January 26). "You got the freedom to take four to five songs, get 'em cleared and throw it up on iTunes and get people to buy it. At the same time, you're creating the heat, generating the interest and go into your second album. That's the plan. Consistency is the key to success, in my eyes. You look at a lot of these great artists — you look at T.I., you look at Wayne, you look at Jay-Z — all them were consistent."

Maino's EP is called Unstoppable and features the song "Tiger Woods," which focuses on lust and sex.

"Everything is unstoppable. It's like, that became kinda like my slang," he said. "I hit Billboard three times, and they still sleeping. It's no New York artist to hit Billboard three times, and they still sleeping. My movement is unstoppable. No matter what I go through, no matter what's going on in my life, I keep pushing to put out quality music that's not only banging in New York, but all over. We ain't stopping. We ain't hot yet. We just getting started."

Maino's LP will come on the heels of the EP. Its title plays off the name of his debut, If Tomorrow Comes ... .

"It's called The Day After Tomorrow," Maino revealed with a grin. "I never told it to nobody else. So it's an excusive. You got it right now. This summer, guaranteed."

Kwame, Scram Jones, Mister Roger and GQ Beats are among the producers signed on for the album.

Kanye West’s Assault Charges Dropped

The criminal assault charges against Kanye West and his associate, Don “C” Crawley, were officially dropped last month (January 29).

According to TMZ, during a court appearance in L.A. a judge let ‘Ye and Don C off the hook, after their lawyer proved that the duo performed community service with Red Cross, as ordered.

West was originally charged with one count of vandalism, grand theft and battery by the L.A. city attorney’s office. Don C. racked up two counts of the same charges for his involvement.

The pair were ordered to perform community service back in October for their physical confrontation with a photographera t L.A.X. in September 2008. The incident occurred after an overzealous paparazzi snapped pictures of the Chicago rapper.

Kanye confronted the man and Don C. later grabbed the photographer’s camera and smashed it on the ground. Video footage of the incident later popped up online.

Little Brother's LeftBack Album To Be Their Last

Phonte and Big Pooh of Little Brother recently announced that they will be releasing their fourth and last album, LeftBack, for this spring.

Originally intended to be an EP, the group shares that they ultimately decided on a full album. “I didn’t want our last record to be a bunch of second-rate material,” Phonte said in a statement. “I wanted to walk away from Little Brother knowing that I gave our fans all that I had to give, and said everything I wanted to say. With Leftback, I’ve done that.”

Not only will it be a complete LP but it will also include four music videos and a DVD of bonus material compiled into a documentary format, something new for the North Carolina duo who’s never been heavy on the visuals.

“Three albums, three mixtapes, one video,” says Big Pooh. “It doesn’t make a whole lot of sense in this day and age. We have always lacked in the visual department, and I think it will be refreshing to finally offer people those visuals.”

The good guys have plans to go on tour this year as well around the release of their album which is slated for April 20.

Lloyd Banks Working On New Album

Lloyd Banks has been hard at work.There is an official LP that may drop around summer and an official single with Juelz Santana called "Beamer, Benz or Bentley" dropping in the next couple of weeks.

"I'm just starting back," he said. "I've been so focused with taking over the street and people hearing me back on that market — so when I come with the official records, they'll appreciate it more. 'Beamer, Benz or Bentley,' It's a club record, party record, car record. It's a lot of energy and something new. It's a sound that ain't out there right now."

Banks is about to go back on an overseas tour lasting from February until April. In the spring, he due to start a U.S. trek with the G-Unit, during which he'll be recording the album and hopefully coming up with a name for the Your browser does not support inline frames or is currently configured not to display inline frames. =bioLong>project. On the street level, a Lost Tapes-style mixtape of unreleased songs is coming soon — and, of course, V5 is out now.

"I got a few new followers behind V5," Banks said. "People just catching on. For those who been following me since last September, they should be familiar that it's the fifth volume of the Five and Better series — my personal favorite. I kind of envisioned it this way. I told them I was gonna give them five mixtapes in a year.

"It's sequenced like an album. I wanted to go through different zones," he added. "I had records like 'Sh---y City,' which had significance because it's part two from the 'Sh---y City' that was a part of the Gang Green series. The record 'Look Ma,' it's my most personal record on the album. I'm speaking to my mother. I got a young mom — she appreciates it and she loves to see me successful. 'Rather Be Me,' I had that record for a few years. My favorite record is 'I Do.' I was getting up to the beat for two weeks. I had a good zone on this mixtape."

Rick Ross Prepares Next Album, 'Teflon Don'

Ricky Rawse is back and he's got his Grammy-winning friend with him. Rick Ross and John Legend recently finished a new collaboration called "Sweet Life," with a video to boot.

"It's a lot of Internet, a lot of online chatter going on — a lot of talk of this new Rick Ross/ John Legend collaboration," Ross said. "I'm confirming it. It's official. We got another record. ... Ah man, I don't know how to describe this one. 'Magnificent' was one of my favorite records off Deeper Than Rap. But the new John Legend [collaboration] is most definitely next-level vibe. We back at it. It's most definitely creative. Shout-out to John Legend — I think he makes a huge contribution to music."

"Myself, I try to get better and better with every rhyme I make — every rhyme I bring to the table, I want to make sure it's more potent than the last. I'm setting this album, Teflon Don, to be the album of my career," Ross added.

Ross' record with Legend won't be released for a while, so the first song he wants to focus on is the sequel to his controversial "Mafia Music."

"Always wanted a Rolls Royce with no job," he raps. "All I fear is a dope charge/ Tell me what's the odds of appeal for a dope boy?/ Who sheds tears for a dope boy?/ Or what happens to the kids of a dope b oy?"

" 'Mafia Music 2' is the first release from my album Teflon Don," he explained. "It's real exciting. A lot of people don't know Teflon Don was my original rap name — so it's coming back around full-circle. For me, it makes sense to come back with 'Mafia Music 2' because my hunger is the same from 'Mafia Music 1.' It's a new year."

Teflon Don is due to be released later this year.
