Singer/Songwriter NE-YO hosted a listening party for his new CD at the Moet Rose Lounge at MF Sushi in Buckhead last night. It looks like the rolled up cuff look is here to stay. The gays have taken over, ladies. So get used to it.
Ludacris and his chocolate dipped manager Chaka Zulu also attended the event.
The families of rapper T.I. and his wife Tiny are said to be distraught after hearing the news of their arrests for possession of a controlled substance in L.A. last night.
According to TMZ, T.I.’s expensive Maybach was pulled over during a traffic stop around 10:30 pm west coast time. Police smelled marijuana in the car and conducted a search of the vehicle and its occupants.
Four people were arrested during the traffic stop. In addition to T.I. and Tiny, a man and a woman were also taken into custody. Industry insiders believe the male is Grand Hustle
CEO Jason Geter artist C-Rod (P$C), who always travels with T.I., and the female was C-Rod’s longtime girlfriend, Vanity.

Troubled rapper Kanye West attended day 3 of the U.S. Open tennis match with his new love, part time model Selita Ebanks. The rapper and Ebanks laughed and cuddled together as they watched a match at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in the Flushing neighborhood of Queens in New York City yesterday.
At least Kanye has good taste. I’m sure he’s happy that he dumped that cheating loser Amber Rose, who was only using him to further her own career — whatever that is.

Rapper Shawty Lo’s longtime girlfriend and baby mama, Ecreia Perez, was arrested for carrying a loaded weapon into the Fulton County courthouse
Perez was taken into custody on Tuesday (Aug. 31) after police say she tried to sneak a stun gun “cleverly disguised” as a cell phone into the Fulton County Superior court.
When she was stopped and searched, police also found a loaded handgun in her possession.
Perez told police that she simply forgot the items were in her purse. There are indications that Perez may have been arrested for publicity purposes due to her notoriety. She was most likely arrested because they knew who she was.
It is not unusual for women in Atlanta to carry stun guns for their personal protection. It is easy to forget the item is in your purse especially if you are in a hurry.
For example, I walked into that same courthouse last year with a stun gun in my backpack. The sheriff simply placed my stun gun in a locker while I conducted my business and he returned it to me when I left.
Perez’s bail was set at $6,000 and she was released yesterday.
Perez and rapper Shawty Lo announced their engagement in June. But Shawty, real name Carlos Walker, broke off the engagement to his girlfriend of 10 years after he caught Perez allegedly cheating on him.
“Things happen. I can’t point no fingers (sic),” said Shawty in an interview with MTV. “We were separated, the engagement lasted probably a month. It was a 10-year relationship.”
He added: “Something happened that I found out. Me, being a man, you just can’t deal with certain stuff, put up with certain stuff. So, you know, it’s better for us to separate. I can’t talk about it. That my daughter’s mother. I got much respect for her. … (But) yeah, I’m single right now.”
The couple have a daughter together. He also has 9 other children from previous relationships.

According to online reports, rapper T.I., real name Clifford Harris, and his wife, Tiny, real name Tameka Cottle, were arrested in West Hollywood last night and charged with possession of a controlled substance.
T.I. was released from a federal prison in December 2009 where he had been serving a 12-month sentence on weapons charges. The rap star served out his sentence in a halfway house in Atlanta.
He is currently serving a three-year probation after pleading guilty in May of 2009, for attempting to purchase machine guns and silencers before the BET Awards in 2007.
This latest arrest could jeopardize his probation status.
The car the couple was riding in was pulled over after police smelled marijuana emanating from the car. According to a credible source, T.I. and Tiny were the only two arrested though there were others riding in the car with them.
“It sounds like a set up to me,” said the source this morning. “There was a bunch of people in that car. Why just take them two?”
The pair, who married last July in Miami, were taken into custody by L.A. County Sheriff Deputies. It is unclear if they are still in custody.
T.I. and Tiny have two children together, King, 5, and Major Harris, 2. Tiny also has a daughter, Zonnique, 12, from a previous relationship, who is home-schooled.
T.I. currently has the #1 movie in America, Takers, which took in $20.5 million at the box office in its opening weekend.

A crazed gunman entered the Discovery Channel building in Silver Spring, Maryland today where he took “a small number” of people hostage, according to Montgomery County Police. There are no reported injuries.
“At this point, we are still negotiating with him. The negotiations have been going on for nearly an hour,” Montgomery County Police Chief Tom Manger said in a live briefing outside the building. The briefing was carried live by major news networks.
The armed man, identified as James Jay Lee, reportedly has live explosives strapped to his body. Lee is no stranger to the Discovery Channel; he was arrested in 2008 for loitering and throwing money outside the building.
According to Lee’s manifesto, published by TMZ.com, he is an anti-population zealot who advocates birth control and other anti-population methods.
As I pointed out in this post, ObamaCare contains a dirty little secret that could lead to population control of the black community.
Many critics say ObamaCare is a disguised form of population control.
Lee is demanding that the network revamp its programming to “stop encouraging the birth of any more parasitic human infants…”
It looks like being a home wrecker does pay off.

Back to Me is getting rave reviews from tone challenged music critics. The album doesn’t do it for me. I fast forwarded through the 1st 7 tracks to find something worth listening to. But who am I to say what great music is.
