Botchey, left, and DJ Infamous
This Sunday at The Velvet Room was bananas! The occasion was DJ Infamous’ 4th Year Anniversary as one of the South’s premiere DJs. Young Infamous has a cameo in just about every rapper’s video and he’s in high demand all over the South. If you live in Atlanta, you hear him spin nightly on V-103’s Greg Street Show.
The occasion was also club promoter Botchey’s birthday bash at Velvet Room. Botchey and MusicBusinessPolitics holds down Investment Night every Wednesday night at Luckie Lounge. If you live in the A then you know how Botchey is doin’ it. So how many celebrities came out to celebrate with Infamous and Botchey? Too many to name!
Prince Williams of ATLPics.net has all the hawt pics!

I heard DJ Drama was shook when he saw that Jeezy was in the house. They say he made a beeline for the back door. I don’t know how true that is, so don’t quote me. (Click image to enlarge)
MORE pics after the break!
Lil Kim’s first dance on the hit tv series “Dancing With the Stars” tonight. Lil Kim did the best she could do… considering. The understatement of the year was when Kim’s dance partner Derek Hough said: “Lil Kim definitely has a little bit of Hip Hop experience.” Huh?
Keri Hilson’s video for “Make Love” off her upcoming album In a Perfect World, leaked today just in time to take advantage of all this manufactured Ciara/Beyonce diss hype.
But beyond the diss track, there’s nothing to see here. Keri is a beautiful girl and a talented writer, but a singer? Umm, no.
I totally agree with Mr. Trump. Rihanna should have used this incident as an opportunity to send a message to her young fans. But all she cares about is getting on with her career as if nothing happened.
From OK! Magazine:
Donald Trump is once again speaking his mind — this time about the Chris Brown and Rihanna debacle.
The Donald recently lashed out at Rihanna, telling Inside Edition he would have “fired” the “Umbrella” singer for going back to Brown.
“She better get the hell out,” he says. “If she goes back, she’s a loser and she doesn’t deserve to have any future success.”
Trump is of course referring to the now infamous “alleged” Feb. 8 fight between Chris and Rihanna, which left her with a battered face. Something tells us Brown will never be appearing on Trump’s show, Celebrity Apprentice.
How sad that Barack Hussein Obama seems not to care that the American people think he’s a socialist.
He’s so blissfully ignorant to the fact that when the New York Times asked him about his socialist leanings, he thought the reporter was joking.
From The NY Times:
Less than 90 minutes after Air Force One landed, the telephone rang. President Obama was on the line, wanting to add one more point to a response he gave during an interview with The New York Times.
On a flight from Ohio to Washington on Friday, Mr. Obama was asked whether his domestic policies suggested that he was a socialist, as some conservatives have implied.
“The answer would be no,” he said, laughing for a moment before defending his administration for “making some very tough choices” on the budget.
As the interview progressed, Mr. Obama never returned to the question. When he called, he said he had been thinking about it as he boarded the helicopter taking him back to the White House.
“It was hard for me to believe that you were entirely serious about that socialist question,” Mr. Obama said from the Oval Office.
He then dismissed the criticism, saying the large-scale government intervention in the markets and the expansion of social welfare programs had begun under his Republican predecessor, George W. Bush.
Really? I doubt that Bush spent nearly $2 TRILLION dollars in one month.
For those who say Beyonce is all natural, here’s indisputable proof that she is not. We know those hips aren’t hers. Why does she keep playing? Bey was spotted shooting a music video in the Tribeca section of New York City yesterday.

A scrub is a guy that thinks he’s fly
And is also known as a buster
Always talkin’ ’bout what he wants
And just sits on his broke ass
A scrub is a guy that cant get no love from me
Hanging out the passenger side
Of his best-friend’s ride
Trying to holler at me
~ From the TLC hit “No Scrubs” written by Kandi Burrus
Filming of the 2nd season of Bravo’s Real Housewives of Atlanta just got underway last week, and already the drama is heating up behind the scenes.
Grammy-winning singer/songwriter Kandi Burrus is the new addition to the cast of the Real Housewives of Atlanta. Kandi, who was filming a reality series with fellow Xscape member Tameka “Tiny” Cottle that got scrapped, will most likely marry her fiance on ATL Housewives.
Congrats to Kandi! But it can’t be a good thing that the entire Atlanta music industry, male and female, are all abuzz about your man — and not in a good way.
One industry friend, who doesn’t normally indulge in idle gossip, told me yesterday, “If that’s who I think it is, he’s the biggest whore in Atlanta.
And loyal reader Siobhan wonders if Kandi’s fiance is the man who has been wining and dining her in Arizona.
Just finished reading the letter about Kandi’s fiance “AJ”. I’m not 100% sure but I am 99.9% that he is the same guy I met here in Arizona. I met him at the Fashion Square Mall in Scottsdale a couple of months ago with two of his other friends. Unfortunately their names escape me. However, he told me he was in the music industry. He has taken me shopping out here and we even went to a Suns game together. He also told me about previously dating Tiny and getting in to an altercation with TI. An the ironic thing is everytime he was out here we would eat at Bennihana’s. I am curious to see this new Housewives play out and see if Kandi’s new fiance is the fraud I met here in Arizona. If so all I can say is Kandi please run the other way!!!!
Great Britain is cracking down on cowardly wife beaters and domestic abusers by considering a measure to inform women of their new mate’s abusive history.
According to the Daily Mail, British women who fall in love with wife beaters and domestic abusers will be informed about their violent pasts.
Jacqui Smith, the Home Secretary, said she wanted to break the cycle of domestic violence by targeting “serial offenders” who “basically go from one relationship to another” beating up women.
This is a great idea in light of the frequent abuse that pop singer Rihanna suffered at the hands of her boyfriend Chris Brown.
The proposal being considered in Britain would also give power to law enforcement to ban offenders from the homes of women who are abused. This provision would supersede the need for protective orders in the cases of women who refuse, or are afraid to take out orders of protection against their abusers.
The British are always one step ahead of the U.S. when it comes to protecting it’s most vulnerable citizens. How do we get such a bill or law passed here in the United States to protect weak women like Rihanna?
