Sexy siren Taraji P. Henson turned heads at the Herve Leger By Max Azria Collection Launch Party at Live! in West Hollywood yesterday. I LOVE how she color coordinated the shoes and the clutch with her dress.


Image conscious rapper/actor Ludacris attended the 34th Annual One Show Awards Gala at Jazz at Lincoln Center in NYC yesterday. Isn't he handsome in his Armani suit? I wonder if he uses the same tailor as V-103's Ryan Cameron? I ask because their suits are cut the same.


Rapper/actor philanthropist Ludacris and his former co-worker La La Vazquez attended "Cocktails with Jessica" at Taj in NYC yesterday. Luda (Chris Luva Luva) and La La worked together as jocks on Atlanta's Hot 97.5 (now, Hot 107.9) back in the 90s.

L to R: Universal Music's Shawn Costner, industry vet Michael Mauldin (Jermaine Dupri's pops) and singer Usher attended "Cocktails with Jessica" at Taj in NYC last night. You might recognize Shawn Costner as one of the cheapskates who gypped a NY establishment out of $1,500. Jay Z ended up saving the day by tipping the waitress $500 out of his own pocket. That was very noble of Jigga.


L to R: Universal Music's Shawn Costner, Ryan Howard (Philadelphia Phillies) and Atlantic Records rep Mike Kyser attended "Cocktails with Jessica" at Taj in NYC last night. Kyser is the other cheapskate who was with Jay Z and Shawn Costner when they stiffed that NY restaurant out of $1,500.



BET 106 & Park co-host Terrence J, left, and Chaka Zulu of Ebony Son mgt. (Ludacris manager), attended "Cocktails with Jessica" at Taj last night in NYC.



Legendary rap group De la Soul performed during MTV's "The Lair" at the Metro Theater in London last night. You don't understand how much love I have for this group. Their classic album Three Feet High & Rising is one of the essential CDs in my car's emergency survival kit.


Hot 97 NY DJ and trend setter Funkmaster Flex attended the grand opening of Next Level at Prime in NYC last night. No one else worth mentioning was in attendance.

    Taraji is smoking!! She looks gorgeous! I am so happy for her and I hope her success sends her into the stratosphere.

    I must admit that I like seeing a rapper in a suit. But I can only admire one woman-bashing 'recording artist' at a time and so---as good as Ludacris looks in his suit, AKON will always be my number one piece of chocolate.

    Image conscious rapper/actor Ludacris - reference to the blind item - i like it!!

    I also appreciate the references to the former Jay Z post - nice to put a face with the name without googling (is that a word??? Like facebooking???LOL) all over the place.

    My loyalty has paid off! LOL

    Sorry ya'll I had a moment =)

  • melinla

    Luda does look good in that suit, and being 5'10" and all I'll invite him to climb on up and start proving all that $h!t he talks in those songs - HA!

  • http://myspace.com/thegameoncw Bird

    I'm tired of these too. They haven't even been interestng lately. Z-Listers and No Listers for the most part. I will say Taraji's dress is pure fiyah for the club, but I would have worn a sexier shoe. That is if my man would even allow me to wear it, which I can assure you ain't happening. It is hella revealing. Not sure I'm feeling the throwback Jheri-curl look.

  • Daisy

    Morning Fam!

    Taraiji is NOT smoking hot to me in this pic! She looks old(face) which I have been saying about her for awhile now and this pic further confirms it. I LOVE her as an actress she can hang with the best of them. I am not feeling this hoochie mama get up at all.

    Lala is such a cute girl!

    Hey Bird!

    Tarjii needs to give Rhianna back her Michael Jackson wig! I like the dress but on a younger girl.

    That guy Shawn looks like he ate 1500.00 dollars of food on his own. Do people still have freckles?

    Flex gets on my darn nerve with all that talking and ass kissing he does on the radio.

    LaLa is about to be a judge on Charm School with Ricki Lake (who looks great!).

    Did Ricki get the Gastric before it was popular?

  • MIZZ.I_REP_ATL

    I agree Daisy, this getup/duo for Taraji is just not doing it for me. Something is just off. I'm not feeling the hair, her dress isn't doing her no justice and lawd the shoes. She looks old(er).

  • Krysi J

    Yea Taraji would be fye if she were "Shug Avery", or Latoya Jackson, unfortunately all she has on this pic is a nice shape. She looks entirely too close to her age wit dat wig or wet and wavy weave....!!

    Luda looks good in a suit, but I wish he would take that mustache up a few inches.

    Shawn Costner......damn dude I think we were better off NOT seeing your pic. And don't get MAD niccah GET MONEY...you shooting birds and thangs, you need to flip some.

    The dress is HOTT, just that on Taraji it should have been about .2inchces bigger in the front the way "her ole girls" that way would've had some air to breath and wouldnt look like smashed.

    I'm old fashion and like to read song credits, thank you's and look at the art work on a cd sleeve.

    But the music sounded great! Hope she comes in at # 1.

    Did Ciara Cd come out this week? Between her idenity crisis & weak voice I can't mess with her, sorry cici I did try.

  • Krysi J

    Yes Daisy it is certified...and you know its straight bootleg action for him...I ain buying no CO's cd rapping bout shyt he never did. Niccah if ya rapping can be fake than so can my bootleg cd.

  • Shauny

    I think Taraji looks nice in that dress. Halle had on a skin tight black one just last week and peeps thought she looked good. Taraji is still in her 30s, she has the body and she's killin it in that dress. I HATE the curly do though, please never again Taraji.

    Luda has always looked nice in his suits.

    I don't like Funk Master Flex or the one from NY that heavy set with the glasses (Drama King or something).

    Sandra, I love De La Soul too! Potholes in my lawn

  • Daisy

    @Shauny Halle is HALLE Taraiji is NOT. Halle did NOT look like a HOOCHIE MAMA! She looked CLASSY! Her dress was NOT up her tail and her girls were NOT hanging all out.

    Oh and Halle looks YOUNGER and fresher than Taraiji whom she is older than

  • Shauny

    @Kyrsi - girl if you ain't buying any CDs from a CO who is lying and applied that logic to all rappers in general that are lying in their lyrics about what they have/did then your entire rap collection is on bootleg. ALL of the niccas be lying...lol

  • Shauny

    @Daisy - I don't think Halle OR Taraji looked like hoochie mamas in their dresses. A minidress and showing cleavage doesn't = hoochie IMO. She pulls that dress of nicely to me. That's ME.

  • http://myspace.com/necee518 yvonne79

    Hey y'all!

    The dress Taraji has on is hot. Lovin' the color and the back of it. What's off about the dress,I think, is the way her breasts are sitting. Gosh, they look SO fake. Kind of how Victoria looks in her clothes when she makes attempts to show cleavage.

    Luda looks VERY handsome in a suit. Very dapper indeed.

  • Daisy

    @Shauny not all mini dresses equal hoochie mama that is correct. We will agree to disagree on Taraiji whom I love as an actress as I said earlier. She is a cute girl just not in this pic.

    Halle def. did not look like a hoochie mama she was CLASSY!

  • http://myspace.com/necee518 yvonne79

    And on other note, don't BOTHER with Ciara's CD. It's not even worth a download or a burn. Two words--hot garbage! Out of all the songs on the CD, I only like ONE song,'Like a surgeon'. I would like to ask the Ciara stans not to jump on me. I am just stating my opinion. MMkay?
    Luv ya...smooches!!!

  • mimi08

    I'm not feelin taraji in this dress. No ma'am! In order to wear this dress she needs to have a longer more defined waist, and a longer neck. She looks to "compact" in this outfit. Age has nothing to do with it, cause if her body dimensions were different, she would have pulled this look off. Hell, i know some of yall older than her with cellulite and bad skin, would still wear this outfit with all of that going on. At least her skin pretty and she don't have any dimples and stuff going on. But i just think she needs a longer waist and a longer neck. I also would have worn different shoes. And the hair, hellz no! She lookin like a rick james, slash, black betty boop!

  • Krysi J

    So Ciara's cd is garbage huh?...figures.

  • iscream

    @ Shauny there is only one Flex... pit bull flex, funk masterflex, drop da bomb flex, fat flex is all that annoying man in the picture above.

    Halle may not have looked like a hoochie mama but she sure didn't look red carpet ready. If you all are talking about the picture with the flip flops.

  • Krysi J

    ROTFLMAO!!!!...............she do, she DO....hahaha

    she look just like dat nicCa Rick James!

  • mimi08

    Rick Ross is the real deal for all that don't know. And for the extremely naive, let me put you up on this. Rick Ross admitted he was a Correction Officer (CO), but if yall know like i do, them the dirty muthaf*&(#$ right there! Law enforcement officers are dirty..Now imagine make a hood kneegrow a law enforcement officer, giving him the right to carry a gun LEGALLY! Now that's taking hustlin to another level. If you know like i know, them the ones bringing the drugs in the jail! Them the real shot callers cause they got access and power and control, more than your street dime hustler that jayz and all them claimed to have been at one time.

    So truth be told, when 50 thought he was throwing salt on "Officer Ricky" with that bull, he really just upped his game...but that's only FOR THOSE WHO KNOW! lol...some of yall might think law enforcement officers ALL really just there to enforce the law..LOL!!!!!! If you know like i know, some gangsters/hustlers, deliberately go for these positions so they can get their hustle on, flying under the radar for years....

    It took Chubby Ross over yr to admitt he was a officer only after Trick Daddy expose his wack azz, we should all know that officers are real crimnals thats nothing new, but officer false had the opportunity to come clean when he didnt he kept denying it like the FAKE that he is. Well I really dont care I never bought his albums straight bootleg. I look at the situation like this Officer Fake is like one of those funny story telling niccas that you know are lying but the story is sooo interesting. So what he is rapping about is fake but he makes it so interesting!!! :)+

  • Shauny

    I liked Halle in the flip flop pic too. Black dress, o.k, just pretty, not SLAMMIN like she normally does.

    @mimi - I think when Rick Ross was a CO how ever many years ago that was, he was just that, a C.O doing his job. I don't think he had any intent on doing anything other than his job. Sad thing is, in our effed up world, having a legit job makes you a fake, phony, and whatever else he's called now in ignorant world of rap relevance.

    Instead of him saying yes, in the early 90s I was a C.O for a bit over a year, he lied. How many years ago did he work as a C.O? I know drug dealers who went from BUMS to big houses and bentley in the span of 2 years (btw ALL their azzes are locked up or dead now). He could still have been a C.O and left that job and went to do whatever his azz is saying he did. He shouldn't have lied about his former job.

  • kcicero

    Even if any of these rappers actually did what they said in their CD's which none of them have. *FYI people get shot 20 times for being in the wrong place at the wrong time* WHY is this even something that we would want to promote and/or listen too? That's what's wrong with our community now. I wish I would a rapper talking about how many people he shot, how hoes aint shit and how nice his rims are...that's just Ludicrous to me.

    Give me some Mos Def, Talib, Roots, anybody but these fake, no conscious having, women disrespecting, dumb arse, felons, with 20 year engagements, 10 different baby momma's, Chicroc drinking fools...

  • kcicero

    sorry for the rant...couldn't help it...

  • Krysi J

    Ummmm mimi08 you giving Ross too much credit hun, he was a CO, not an undercover detective like Denzel on "Training Day", jacking dope boyz and king pins....dat nicCah wasn't running a damn thang but the SOLITARY CONFINEMENT security post on Thursdays - Monday 11pm - 7am or until 11am for overtime. cut it out. HE WAS A REGULAR...no REG-ALLAH niccah with a JOB, car note,and RENT to pay point blank period. I bet he won't rap bout dat doe, just like he lied about NOT being a CO for months!

  • Shauny

    That's what I don't get about people who are clowning him. This man thought that it was better to lie about having a C.O job boo coo years ago because he was probably afraid that he would be ridiculed for having a nice job. That is absolutely crazy to me.

    A corrections officer. Not out riding a squad car, pulling folks over, giving tickets, arresting people but watching prisoners and he's labeled a fake, phony, whatever for holding down a 9-5 for a year and a half over what 10 years ago.

    This story continues to amaze me about us. Why is he so different then every other lying rapper out there? Keep your head up Rick, your're not the first lying rapper and you wont be the last.

  • Krysi J

    Exactly Mizz Dallas, he's like the kindergarten teacher in class with the story book in his hand.

    Not that it's anything to brag about but check my baby TIs rap sheet. Not everybody is 100% and not everybody lies. Some rappers may embellish if you will but doesn't mean they didn't do most or some of what they rap about again not saying thats anything to brag about. At the end of the day its for ET purposes only!

    Mos def, talib, roots, common, kanye I like them as well but they will rap about women as sex objects as well KC..lol

  • Krysi J

    Yea keep ya head up Rick

    *LOL at Shauny*

    at least he got somebody to hold him down.

    -------------------------------------------------

    Check it out doe, if he hadn't lied about having the job, it would have been all good with me, I would have felt like he was real enough to be honest and say the hell with how another nicca feel about it, but this idiot denied the shyt, like it was a crime and therefore turned it into one...now you can't help BUT look at him like he's a fake.

    I am so sorry, but I would be compLETELY waisting my time trying to force myself to listen to that boring azz shyt, I like those dudes because of who they are, you know out of respect, but I could never stand listening to them rap a whole album. As ignorant as that may sound, its the truth.

  • Shauny

    Daisy - I agree...well no comment on your TI stanning..lol

  • kcicero

    Nope more often than not those songs have deeper messages like the Roots Pus*sy Galore...deeper meaning than most thought.

    Common be straight fooling sometimes and I def skip past those songs. They are positive role models. And I did not put Kanye on the list for a reason though there are some songs of his that I listen too.

  • mizzdallas

    @shauny

    Your right Fake ross isnt the first nor the last rapper that is lying about his or her life. Ross had the opportunity to speak out about him having a legal job but he didnt he wanted to be something he wasnt. All for the love of money!!!

  • mimi08

    @shauny

    Well i don't know him personally, so whether he was legit when he was a CO nobody really know. I personally don't believe it. And whether you know this or not, alot of young guys are recruited young, told to keep their noses clean, so they can get jobs like CO's and Police Officers, DEA Agents, FBI, etc. These are usually family members of drug dealers, uncles and stepfathers. Criminals want and need people in places and positions that can help them out. This might sound like the movies, but trust me when i say i know this PERSONALLY.

    How do people think the drugs in the jails/prisons? Did you know it's more drugs in the jails and prisons than on the street? How do you think it's getting in? The workers..who are the workers? CO's!!!!!!!!!!!! That's why i said for those who know. And you said you think Rick was just a 19 year old at that time doing his job...So i guess it was the other CO's working there that was doing the drug slinging, not Officer Ricky, the same Officer Ricky who is fantasizing about this gang banger lifestyle. I think it's sort of naive to think that someone would fantasize or rap about something, and not do something, something that come so easily to inner city black young males. I think it's more likely he was doing something illegal..

    Did you see the interview two nights ago with Tigga? Well if you listened, notice he said he was asked to take that job, and he did it.

    I know it's easier to look at it differently, and think that he was just straight laced at the time. He might have been, but then he might not have been. It's much scarier to think that young males are recruited for shyt like that.

    I just know so many dirty officers in all facets of law enforcement, and while you running in your precinct complaining about the crack house across the street from you, you don't know the officers who taking down your complaint is the drug dealers who run that house, brother! I'm just saying yall..Rick Ross story is not all all far fetched to me...

    And @ krysi

    You are obviously one of those who don't know...that's why i said, for those who know. I swear to god, some of yall are extremely naive. Take a moment one day, and go sit in your local courts and just observe. Your azz might be living in the matrix cause alot of shyt aint what it appears.

    Don't get me wrong, im not paranoid or a conspiracy theorist, i know these things for a fact, and on a personal level. You'd be shocked if you know what i know, and i'm going to leave this subject here.

    Now Mos Def and Talib are DOPE!! LOVE EM I've never really listened to the Roots but I'm a born and raised southsider from the Chi so of course I'm up on Common. Daisy is correct too. They do rap about women in their lyrics.

    @mizzdallas co-signing!!!

    My brother wants to GANGSTA rap even though he got into Penn State main campus on a baseball scholarship and was never into that life style. Dumb behind got in trouble and got kicked out of school and locked up now he doesn't know what to do with his life, SMH.

    Black men stop trying to be something that even these rappers are not! Go to school get an education and make something of yourself!

  • kcicero

    Shauny specify which ones rap about women as objects, I'll give you Kanye and Common but I never mentioned them in the first place...

    Agreed with Krysi if CO False didnt deny it the first it wouldnt blow up in his face....

    No comment on TI

    @I love me some Kanye & COmmon I have all of there albums even Electric Circus!!! lol!!!

    Common is a freak I met him backstage once. He was flirting with this chick that was in front of me he kept whispering in her ear about how she need to leave with him but ole girl kept saying she here with her man and common said it loud enough where the whole room heard him say " Leave nigga at that house" this was 1yr ago I was told my bye my then boyfriend that common is nasty like that...

    @KC I listen to the lyrics as well and the deeper meaning doesn't go over my head but coming to break you off-roots was about straight SEX..lol Loved that song though..lol

  • Shauny

    mimi - slow down sweetie.

    I never guessed how old Rick Ross was when he worked their..I said boo coo years ago not age 19. I said what I THINK he was doing, which was his job. YOU are assuming he was doing the worse and living out this "gangbanger", "chosen one" lifestyle that he raps about and that's your choice just as what I said is mine.

    If I am naive for thinking he was just a guy who needed a job and took one as a C.O then what does that make you, the person who thinks he was "offered" the job to pass drugs through the prison? No I didn't hear his interview but last time I checked you had to fill out an application for a job they aren't just asking you to take them. NO, I don't think every C.O goes to work with the intent to be negative, is that a crime now too?

    How did it blow up in Ross's face? Did it affect his record sales? Cause from where i'm sitting, that information didn't do a damn thang! His records still hitting, he still got niccas lined up to do collabo's with him...he's the hottest rapper on the scene right now!

  • kcicero

    @ Dais Yeah but that definitely wasn't degrading! Coming to break you off is my JAM! Hubby and I oh nevermind (there's a reason why we're on kid number three and four years of marriage...that's definitely a grown and sexy song though, LMAO!!!!

    But yeah you know I know no ones perfect, lol! I just like their overall message! Dag I'm bout to go listen to me some roots right now! Still bumps "Give it here, don't say nothing, just give it here and don't say nothing"

  • mizzdallas

    He said he would do a milli in one week he only sold I want to say 258k the first week he be lucky if he go gold but either I dont care you have some people who love him and some who hate him I dont love nor hate him I just like him!!

  • mimi08

    @shauny

    I seen the pic, whether or not he was 19, not sure, but that's a fair analysis cause he looked really young in the pic. And you slow your roll, i didn't say EVERY CO go to work or apply for that job with negative intent. But why someone would think it's far fetched of a thought for Rick Ross is incredibly naive. At the very least, he's a wanna be gang banger...why would it be a stretch to believe he might have been one of the ones running drugs/contraband in the jails? LOL..seriously!

    And yes, you have to fill out an application to get the job...i'm not sure what your point is here..If you dont' understand where i was going when i said they are "recruited" then, that's why i said you're naive..Those who know, know what i'm talking about. You obviously don't. LOL...I definitely wasn't saying officials "offered" him the job!

    I said naive because if you knew how prevalent this is, if you knew on what level this is done, if you knew the extent and how far reaching this type of thing goes, you would be shocked.

    I haven't heard you explain how you think drugs get in prisons?

  • Krysi J

    Criminals want and need people in places and positions that can help them out. This might sound like the movies, but trust me when i say i know this PERSONALLY.
    ----------------------------------------------------

    GIRL, everybody know dat shyt! WHAT YOU don't know is that RICK ROSS is a fukking lie....cuz that sounds like some real azz shyt to rap about it ya ask me, since he was SOOOooo slick wit it, and he can talk about it on TV, why he didn't rap about slanging in the jail house right under dem crackers noses??!! CAUSE he didn't. Now what he did after he quit, who knows, but he still fake azz hell for letting MF tell him what da fukk the definition of being a real dope niccah iz...he had something to hide about what he was rapping and when they exposed it, his first reaction was to lie?!! Nah Trick Daddy would have told dem niCCahs damn MF right I was a CO, nicca my momma had 7 MF kids and I had to help feed em all, I got fired for selling dope to da inmates and did a 5 yr bid for it. Got out, and start selling bricks so I could drop my first album now Im a rapper..........simple as that, who the hell gon' knock your fukking hustle?? Sound like a niccah doing what he had to do. Rick Ross was lame azz hell, Trick Daddy was the only niccah willing to give him a shot and let him rap on some of his tracks, long long time ago, when he was so wack you would skip the whole song just so you didn't have to hear the sound of his voice...I guess he was running Carol City Cartel then huh, its funny I don't remember him saying so?

  • mimi08

    @mizzdallas

    258K in it's first week is is damn good! Sorry, i don't see how this info affected him negatively.

    I don't love him either, but i just see him differently i guess.

  • Daisy

    Lawd Jesus this is going nowhere fast let me get ready for my conf. call

    TEEN SUMMIT!..lol

  • mimi08

    @krysi

    Let me put it like this to answer your question. The big mouth kneegrows is on one side of the jail cell, and the sneaky criminal who play his cards right is on the other side. Why would i think he would be running his mouth telling anybody he was a CO, who would tell that shyt? Are you kidding? And who would get on a record talking about all the devious unlawful shyt they did while being one? Did you know that law enforcement officers can retroactively be charged with crimes because they are oathed and charged to serve the public. No, of course you don't! It's not like a street hustla who got away with shyt for years, running his mouth. No he can't be charged unless he was caught in the act. But you get a government worker admitting to wrong doing, a investigation can launched at any point. And the punishment for being an officer and "taking advantage of civilians" is often much worse. Get up on the law before you start talking.

  • Shauny

    Mimi - I don't want to go into personal jabs over FUCKING Rick Ross, are you kidding me? Are you a baby mama of his or something? Seriously, you're more irritating than a damn Beyaki STAN with this b.s.

    Good for you, you saw a pic, you guessed he was 19, I didn't so don't say I did. I don't think CHIT is far fetched but and let me say it again...I....SAID...I...THOUGHT he didn't take the job with the intent to do wrong. MEANING, I....think....he just held the damn job down but his lying butt is going to come back and try to make it more than what it really was after HE LIED and said he didn't work there at all. Comprehension is the muda. So you keep calling me naive, I've been called worse and I can guarantee you that you have been, trust me.

    I understand exactly what YOU are saying, I think YOU sre missing my point in trying to make sure you're is right. I DON'T think this was the case with Rick Ross, my opinion. There like azzholes, everybody has one. You have your theory and that's you. I don't need to explain how drugs get in a damn prison, you explain it, you seem to know the system pretty well yourself. Ask one of your law enforcement buddies. You seem to know so much.

  • Krysi J

    he’s the hottest rapper on the scene right now!

    ------------------------------------------------

    #1 I can talk all da fukk I want, thats what this white box at the bottom of this page and my enter button on this keyboard is for #2 Who would get on TV and admit da shyt!!!?? You just told us da niccah spoke about being ask to "take the job" as if he was recruited on his interview, so consider the investigation officially LAUNCHED, but they won't find any proof, just like his Lawyer mad sure they removed his name from gang affiliation and the cops said they tagged him because he claims to be a member of the Carol City Cartel.....Lawyer said they had no PROOF. You think that Rick was that fukking slick to fly under the raydar all these fukking years, be a COCAINE KING PIN, in MIAMI and not catch ONE charge for selling, trafficking dope or tax evasion...you obviously don't know shyt about what YOU tom bout.

  • Krysi J

    Why all the paragraphs? -O-O-

    & I don't know about Fl (I think that's where that greesy ass rick ross is from) but from what I know you have to apply for and take and pass a test in order to be a co. Go thru coutless hours of training and once you get the job they treat you like a prisioner. (If you call out sick you can't leave your house btw the hrs u r suppose to be at work. & they do send ppl 2 check up on you.).

    I’m an intern at Def Jam. I want to let the truth be known. The label bought MOST of those albums in his first week sales. He’s on the verge of being dropped from the label. Everyone knows he’s a FAKE but the label keeps encouraging him to maintain this IMAGE at all costs. If you met him he’s not like that AT ALL. Promotion is to manipulate the fans who can’t think for themselves. And yes, he’s probably on here now with his friends logging in posting negative comments about Tia. Too late. Everybody knows THE TRUTH!

  • Krysi J

    Ask a niccah like Meech why the hell he ain no fukking rapper after seeing all that real dope money....he would ask you "why the hell would I waist my time with a petty 3 million dollar def Jam record deal when I made 50 million dollars in 7months!! Fukk rapping, YOU rap, I'll pay for the videos!!!"....and where he at right now.......JAIL serving CONSECUTIVE sentences! Rick Ross ain no EX Cocaine king pin, he was a ex CO, and possible neighborhood dope boy who made just enough to by a cash foreign whip and put rims on it...and he still had to pay RENT for the crib, what KING PIN does that. Where was all dis shyt before he got his deal....if he so "rich off cocaine"???!!!???

  • mimi08

    Okay, um done. Those who got it, great, for those who didn't oh well...we'll just dis-a-phuckin-gree! Damn!

  • MUNCHOSGIRL

    NO HE WAS NO NINO BROWN, I LIVE IN MIAMI, I HAVE KNOWN AND HEARD OF A MANY A KINGPINS IN MIAMI. I CAN HONESTLY SAY I HAD NEVER HEARD OF RICK ROSS UNTIL HE DROPPED HIS MUSIC. HE'S NO COREY SMITH(JOHN DOE), HE'S NO BOOBIE BOY GANG MEMBER, OR NONE OF THE OTHER ILLUSTRIOUS DRUG GANGS WANTED & TAKEN DOWN BY THE FEDS HERE IN MIAMI. NOW WAS HE A CORNER PHARMACIST, WELL THAT IS POSSIBLE. IT DOESN'T TAKE MUCH TO BE A PAPERSACK BOY IN MIAMI.

    It's one think for you to have "your opioion and uphold it... Could it be that maybe you do't get Rick Ross is a Fraud, an illusion, when he doest have to be Rap is an art-form,You don't have to be the buggesst dope boy,killer,.. If that was the case we would have had De La Soul,Lupe Fiasco,Wale,Tribe called quest, Kanye(ta name a few...)...

  • MUNCHOSGIRL

    DAISY MOST OF WHAT YOU TYPED ABOUT THE CRITERIA FOR A CO HERE IN MIAMI IS TRUE. AS FOR THE SICK DAYS I HAVE NEVER HEARD OF ANYONE SAYING THAT CAN'T LEAVE THE HOUSE WHEN THEY CALL OUT SICK.

  • iscream

    @ munch that was me that typed about the CO job. I have a homegirl who works on Rikers and when she calls out she can not leave the house. We were just talking about this the other day. They don't even get sick days. *shrugs*

  • mimi08

    You know, yall took what i said, and ran the phuck off in left field. All i said was i could understand the concept of him being a CO and still be a crooked mutha! And then some of you guys took that and started talking about nino brown! WTF, i didnt' think he was no nino brown. Just like i don't think the guys that selling drugs right now as we speak in the jails and prisons are "nino browns." I was simply saying i know a lot of crooked law enforcement officers, whether they are co's, po's, whatever, that are crooked. So i couldn't understand how that would hurt his career. And i don't know what he did after he left that job, i don't know he he was slick enough to never get caught selling drugs, etc., and i don't care, damn, people took shyt all personal. Your experience is yours and mine is mine, and i see most niccas as dirty muthafucka's okay, sue me! I know alot personally...that's real enough for my azz!

    ---------------------------------------

    shyt we KNEW he wasn't no Nino Brown, all I trying to say was how I got a bootleg copy of "Deeper Than Rap, Faker than Mayweather money" was that it was a GOOD azz LP, I kindly said that if the nigga can fake rap, I can BOOT-LEG, thats all I said and next thing I know you start telling me about your crooked azz homeboys in the precinct. I was just letting you know none of dat shyt applies to Rick False. He's not on the level you are speaking of Mimi...im sorry that he disappointed you, but you know that niccah in your hood with the 1999 benz with the candy paint and the lambo doors wit bout 4 18's beating in the trunk...well that was Rick Ross before his deal. When he had $20,000.00 stashed at his mama house, if he was selling anything decent $40-$50,000.00 at his own crib in a stashed away safe and $5000.00 in his auntie bank account. Thats not RICH off cocaine money. Niccahs barely live or remain free to tell those type of stories...usually fake rappers tell those stories for them.

    Hello All. As far as Taraji, just another flat-chested lady in a push-up bra. (I'm a 40D, naturally, and if I wore a push-up bra, these puppies would be right next to my chin.) As for Luda, he looks good in a suit, what black man doesn't? I tell you, if all these fine, talented, well-off young male entertainers (and professional athletes) would start a real "posse" to change the image of hip/hop, the sky could be the limit for a lot of black Americans. I'm just saying.

    PS I'm so sick of seeing young black men with their pants around their knees and their underwear showing I could just die. How long does a fashion trend usually last? 10 yrs? 20? It's about time this one died. Peaceeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.
