On Friday, the stars came out for live performances by singer Erykah Badu and rapper Nas at Atlanta's State Farm Arena. Afterwards, they attended the star-studded afterparty at the world famous celebrity hotspot, Gold Room.

Celebrity guests included actor Lance Gross, and rappers T.I. Harris and Killer Mike, who helped form Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms' transition team that is currently under investigation by the feds for possible campaign violations.

The afterparty was sponsored by father-of-3 Alex Gidewon, pictured left with Nas.

T.I.'s reality TV show "T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle" was renewed for season 2. Production was halted after the rapper's sister, Precious Harris, died tragically following a single car crash in Atlanta.

In Season 2, T.I. and Tiny move back in together under the same roof while juggling family, friendships and careers. As you know, Tiny moved into a luxury high-rise in Buckhead last year.

Also returning to the show are singers Monica Brown, Tiny's bestie Toya Wright, and hip-hop couple Letoya Luckett and her husband Tommie, who recently welcomed their first child.

    I miss chipped tooth Nas

  • millz

    I was at the concert third or fourth time seeing nas live... his sound wasn’t on point... that Ms Badu... almost thought she was pulling a L Hill... witchcraft/sacrificial is very real and I saw it during her performance... I got the help up... lots of people walked out during her performance and they cut her mic at 12:28 and cut the lights on...

  • WhoKnew

    Jessica White looks broke AF. Entire outfit has that "thrift shop" look.

    Eryka still looks like she ain't washing her ass.

    I remember the issues with NAS not paying his child support so it's a no for me, dawg, when you neglect your financial obligations to your chirren.

  • Trace da Ace

    1. What in the neo soul hell does Eryka have on?
    2. Did Nas ever get Kelis to bring his son back from Columbia?
    3. Is TIP eva gonna release new music?
    4. Lance Gross is giving me that look like "come her gurl"...and I like it
    5. Jessica White....Harpo...who dis woman?
    6.Lastly....did Nas change sweatsuits from party to after party?? asking for a fren.....

  • Neicey

    Off topic. Can I hear about Wendy Williams. Sandy. Auntie. What happened?

  • RICHIE_RICH

    So Wendy Williams back in rehab?

  • Neicey

    I'm waiting on Auntie to update. Sounds like Wendy been in rehab

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Bloop for pills and alcohol Chile. Just flash on my phone.

  • Sweetness

    Tell us more about Badu and the craft. I'm intrigued ?.

  • Panther Charleston

    KLB was working w Killer Mike?! She obs couldn't have seen his show. His ideas are so reactive and backwards. Giiiiirl, don't be mesmerized by a few moments of clarity and a handful of his good ideas. Your whole gotdamn ship will get sunk fooling 'round w him. Got to look at whole picture. Don't dismiss a damn thing. All you need is one roach leg in the batter and folks'll throw the cake and you out the door.

  • WhoKnew

    OT: Some of y'all in the rose garden called it. Y'all said Wendy was in rehab all that time she was absent from her show. Apparently she admitted to being in rehab during that time and living in a "sober house". I just wasn't falling for that shiggity that she and her husband were still together and I definitely wasn't falling for that shiggity that he didn't put all 4 paws on her during that shoulder injury. Now that she has admitted to this she needs a full cleanse and to get rid of that dog of a huzzband.

  • WhoKnew

    Yep. Just posted on the same topic.

  • WhoKnew

    What happened was she was lying to eeerrrybody. I knew she was.

  • RICHIE_RICH

    He’s from Brownsville, what did she expected( no offensive to anyone from Brownsville ?????)

  • Soda

    Y'all just ain't gonna let Sandra post stories at her own pace on her blog. Nowhere does it say this is an open post.

  • Pamela

    Nas, Nas, Nas. Lord have mercy. Perfect creation here.

  • Pamela

    Wha?

  • Bashi22

    Come here Nas let me whisper sweet and sensual massage in your ear ?

  • WhoKnew

    Yes, apparently she admitted it on her show today. I don't watch her show but read it online.

  • Alextra Ballard

    His looks neva changes,which is a good thange

  • Pamela

    I saw him first???. Get your own knockoff Nas.

  • Bashi22

    Lol ?

  • Pamela

    YouTube's my friend. Here I come.

  • WinterIsComing

    All the men look short. I love some Badu!

  • Alextra Ballard

    Windy lies,you neva know what to believe

  • WhoKnew

    True.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Sexy ain’t he ?

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Mr. Oochie Wally himself...

    Heeey boo ???

  • Logan Roberts

    Nas call me 777-9311???

  • Guest

    Yes. I believe her, but I don't. If she was in the rooms in NY staying in a sober house, I'm just saying, some crack head would have out-ed her.

  • WhoKnew

    Everybody does it every now and then and Sandra is cool with it as long as no one is doing it EVERY SINGLE post. I saw last week where you did the exact same thing to someone else who made an OT comment. Really? Are you just on this site to troll people for occasionally making an OT comment? Guh, please.

  • Pamela

    No! He won't call YOU, never, ever, ever. He got one number only; MY NUMBER.

  • Topic Influencer

    Fukk First name Errrykah/ last name Badu. Forever more.

    Hello Nasir?

  • Kimocha

    I remember back in the day I used to fantasize that Nas was my man... And he STILL looks good!

  • Topic Influencer

    I personally can 9 times out of 10, spot substance abuse when I see it. Glad she is getting the help she wants

  • Pamela

    Foolish Kelis. Why she let Nas get away?

  • EasyBreezy

    "...hip-hop couple Letoya Luckett and her husband Tommie..." Auntie, you are entertaining for sure. I am here for every bit of it.

  • Alextra Ballard

    But who said she got treatment in newyork?

  • Kanyade

    can't find the right image.

    erykah's hood though.......

  • EasyBreezy

    Good show, but started L A T E. Nasir is STILL as fine as a $100 bottle of Cabernet, and Erykah's voice is still STRONG. The variety of attendees was pure theatre!

  • Kimocha

    Right!... Like does Tommie have anything to do with hip hop???

  • EasyBreezy

    The delusion you ladies display is laughable. It brings Nasir & me all the closer.

  • bigtyme

    TI released a cd last year. Wasn’t nothing to write home about but he did lol

  • teather

    Badu is the sh*t all day long. No other lady entertainer does it better than she cuz she's ABOUT something. Bey is close next to her but E has so much more depth in her music. Nas has never been attractive to me. He's too emo. He belly aches about everything .Kelis wasn't havin it. Allegedly they both cheated on each other so . . . Nas, good luck man. If he were a lady, you all would be saying he's fat. so . . .

  • WhoKnew

    I drag her a lot but substance abuse needs and requires attention so I'm also glad she is getting help.

  • Prettybrowneound35

    Wait one damn minute...

    So Nas and TI is the same height?

  • Neicey

    I saw it on zmt.

  • Pamela

    Keep dreaming. Only ONE lady in Nas life, and that's PAMELA. Go take a long nap.

  • Neicey

    In rehab .the clip on zmt. She only mentioned cocaine

  • Alextra Ballard

    Lol

  • Alextra Ballard

    Nas is a "cake topper" but umma give him a pass

  • Guest

    She said. Tri state area. I believe she is seeking treatment, but the part about her staying in a sober house and attending meetings in NY is sketchy, to me.

  • Pamela

    NO! Nas is taller, at least 6ft.

  • oshh16

    I never found Nas physically attractive either.

  • Yetunde

    Nas is not 6ft.

  • NewNew

    I've met Nas before and he didn't strike me as 6ft but he certainly wasn't as short as TI seems to be. I could be wrong though

  • Coy little wink

    He's not...

  • Pamela

    You Roy Obeson blind. Girl bye.

  • Alextra Ballard

    6ft?!?!...whur at?

  • Pamela

    Coy you crazy.

  • oshh16

    He not MY type....how is that offensive to the next person though???

  • Coy little wink

    Everything ain't for errrybody

  • Alextra Ballard

    Shol looks like it

  • Pamela

    Joking, having fun here, no offense whatsoever .

  • Pamela

    True that. He's my cuppa tea though.

  • oshh16

    Cool, you neva know on here sometimes LOL

  • Coy little wink

    Exactly. Hard pass...

  • Pamela

    YES HE IS!

  • Coy little wink

    She dumped him while preggers that says a lot...

  • MJF

    that's your family? are you his friend? is this factual information?

  • Soda

    You saw wrong, honey. I replied to her comment regarding her dislike of an OT subject then her later commenting on another. If anyone is a troll here it's you and the constant OT stories you tell that can be filed under Fiction.

  • MJF

    LOL!

  • MJF

    Where's the Wendy Williams news? Hopefully that's the next article coming! xo

  • EasyBreezy

    LOL!

  • Ebony Starr

    I thought that it would be up as soon as today's show ended.

  • EasyBreezy

    Chile, you ain't NEVER lied!

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    I'm with chu gurl. I don't care how tall he is, he still can get it I'm 4'10 so 5'6 looks tall to me?

  • Kimocha

    Chile, I read that Kevin even took his mistress with him to visit Wendy in rehab... She stayed at the hotel while he went to see Wendy during the day.... I think he's STILL seeing this woman!!!

  • EasyBreezy

    Give Auntie, our favorite wordsmith, a few moments to tidy up the Wendy article. She is putting the finishing touches on something factual, edgy, slightly sarcastic, but sincere.

  • KcoolMuziq
  • EasyBreezy

    Stop talkin' bout my babies!

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Hey! That's MY number!!

  • MJF

    LOL! made me laugh

  • MJF

    smh I wouldn't doubt it

  • MJF

    Now that's news. Someone who dishes gossip but today she was vulnerable.

  • WinterIsComing

    Lol

  • Kimocha

    This is a recent pic of her & Kevin giving the middle finger to everybody... She looks high AF to me!

  • GuestSTAR

    Nas.

  • leapyearpisces

    and a koo-koo...I see one of those legendary posts where we aint gonna be shat in our future. LOL.

  • Dasright

    Nas is all kinds of fine ??

  • MJF

    smh, I mean the fact that she didn't see how uneven her nose looks in the pic tells me a lot...I mean, another angle, another side, another pic would've worked better smh

  • leapyearpisces

    All I know is that right nostril has given up on life. IT don't want to be here on this earth anymore.

  • tintin

    i would allow Nas to make love to me.

  • RICHIE_RICH

    PeriodT ... lawd forgive me now !!!

  • tintin

    when Sandra is done with the not so subtle shots on the husband, wendy's looks and her mental health. We gonna have to pray

  • leapyearpisces

    Him nor Method Man. I just never saw it, but I didn't see it with Denzel back in the day either

  • tintin

    huh ....nope

  • SpiceGirl

    I missed the after party AGAIN...dang!

  • leapyearpisces

    Dubb, since you the Areefa Franklin aficionado can you tell me the hoopla about this movie that is getting ready to come out that they kept under wraps for years. I been hearing all kinda fuggery went on in that church that day with spirits being released and jumping into and outta people. I heard that whole service / concert was transformative, and that folks demons were being released and getting the holyghost. I am intrigued. I figure it had to be SOMETHING because who releases an entire MOVIE about one church service?

  • Renee26

    Nas is so fione!!

  • Renee26

    You gotta get past me first sis!! ?

  • MISSMEWITDATBULL

    OT/OPEN POST???
    Roses, whatchall think about Wendy Williams’ announcement that she’s been residing in a sober living house for the past few months????

  • Gamer?? Chick

    Yes but Nicki took that stock down some i still side eye that ish.

  • Renee26

    ?

  • MISSMEWITDATBULL

    I should’ve scrolled down before I came in here asking the same damn thang!?

  • Renee26

    He's making her give the finger ? she looks like HELP ME

  • Renee26

    Damn ?

  • oshh16

    Yeah never saw it for Denzel. I did for Meth back in 93. Then Ghostface became my fav of the WU.

  • leapyearpisces

    Number 5 - Right. Like who pulled her from under the Tony Montana piles of cocaine.

  • MISSMEWITDATBULL

    ?whyyyyyyyyy Lawd?!

  • Renee26

    What happened? Her fake ass gets no views from me since she hiding her own mess and not keepin it real

  • Renee26

    Same thoughts.... Disappointing but Nas can still get it!

  • Being bad is way more fun

    Lance Gross and TI now thats something I would pay lots of money to see them make out lol !!!!!!!!!!

  • Prettybootnikki

    I figured something related to substance abuse was probably happening with her since she mentioned out the blue upon her return that hotline number to substance abuse help. I just wondered why she mentioned that all of a sudden when she came back on. I also do not think she’s being 100% truthful and there’s prob more to come. I’ll watch the show when I get home this evening.
    She just needs to come out and tell it all cause we ain’t dumb

  • leapyearpisces

    If I had to choose, Rza would be my choice, and I would take blair underwood back in the day over denzel. but I would take that black guy who played in that sitcom as a cowboy. he was a popular actor. I can't remember his name but he was fine. he looked like a chocolate kristoff st. john.

  • EasyBreezy

    KeKe!

  • Prettybootnikki

    I hollered!!!!! Lmao!!!! Stop it

  • Kimocha

    Right!... I believe she's scared to death of that nigga!

  • leapyearpisces

    He sure is and she sure does, and that nose done had a stroke in the middle of all of it.

  • ALLMINE?

    U ever heard nas in a rant? ???? jayz had him all in his feelings on the radio back in the day.. imagine Kelis?

  • Renee26

    All men slum for buns every now and them... They weren't in a relationship so I'll let it slide ?

  • ALLMINE?

    Common

  • MISSMEWITDATBULL

    Lance - what happened?? I didn’t even recognize you, Hon!!! Too many late nights? Too many dranks? Leave the liquor alone, Beloved!
    You got too much delicious melanin to be looking like melted chocolate. GET IT TOGETHER!

  • leapyearpisces

    Girl we gotta warm up for the official post. LOL

  • ALLMINE?

    I always thought nas was g*y hidden deeply in the closet. I dont know why.. there's something about him. He doesn't act g*y. I sound crazy..I know

  • Renee26

    What spooky stuff happened?? Did they cut the lights on cause the show was supposed to be over at 12:30??

  • Renee26

    Melted chocolate ? ? ?

  • Renee26

    Every time I see Lance I think of that scene in Temptation when his wife wanted to get freaky and he said Stop it woman...we gonna go in here and fluff these pillows and do it the way we always do ?

  • Renee26

    LMAO ???

  • Renee26

    He whispers in her ear like Ike did Tina

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    You said what I was thinking but I'm sorry, Nas is sexy AF, so I would give him a pass.

  • Kimocha

    Girl, they saying that she hired a private investigator back in Dec to see if Kevin was STILL cheating on her with that chic... and when she found out he was, she confronted him and "fell down" on the ground and that's how she fractured her shoulder!... I believe she more than likely tried to smack the sh!t outta him and he grabbed her arm and twisted that MF back and fractured her sh!t!... She's scared to death of him bc he kicking that ass on a regular!

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Told ya just high ... and that's how she broke her damn arm .... I keep telling folks .,.... this bytch done fell out on broad tv now ...... be slurring and shyt .... come on now ... and I hope folks ain't shocked ... cause I have been saying this shyt for at least 2 years before folks even noticed ... keeping that front drove her to dem pills .... I think that beard of hers do his mess ...... but Wendy ain't gone own up ..... play victim but trust and believe wendy knew all about his sidepiece and was in agreement with it ... long as they both look good on paper .... that's how that went .... I don't bit mo believe and that man marriage real then a man in da damn moon

  • Gloria

  • reddfoxxy16

  • Nicol B

    One question...WAS HE SOBER?
    I love me some Nas, but he's been a hot mess lately.
    Also, why did he and Nicki call it quits?
    So you've been tasked with all of my questions, LOL :)

  • Nicol B

    Yup...also, it's a good look to come out on your own versus having the spot blown. ratings don't hurt either.

  • Nicol B

    Oh...you ain't never lied. It kind of had me broken up.

  • Nicol B

    Y'all cray!

  • Renee26

    ? I been lovin Nas since 94 chile... Call me a super groupie cause my son's middle name is Nasir ?

  • Yetunde

    I’ve seen him in the flesh. I’m 5ft 9in, he was about my height or slightly shorter. He is never 6ft.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Chiiile just like wine...it gets better with time

  • Coco17

    Yes but she was hella late though 11:15 was ridiculous smh...and yes Nas still fine as heck. And performed is but off. Wish he would bring AZ with him sometimes. Affirmative action is one of my favs..???

  • FIGHT THE POWER

    sheeeeeeeeeeeet, the whole concert was late, supposed to start at 8, nas didnt get on stage about 930ish...

  • FIGHT THE POWER

    he was skipping alot of his lines for his songs... i noticed that on a couple of joints he did

  • Coco17

    Thats true. But by the time we got in out the traffic and sat down it was about 8:45 so 9:30 didnt seem so bad. When Badu came out we were tired and hungry...lol after that concert I realized that I like music festivals better.

  • Coco17

    He seemed was sober, he was skipping lines , think he wanted that lame azz audience to rap along with him. I guess he can do no wrong in my eyes...lol the hype man seemed like that lame dj was irritating him though...lol

  • Coco17

    I dont see that. If that were true it would be out. Just think he is a deep mellow brother with a low tolerance for b.s. those are the vibes I get.

  • Coco17

    Nope Nas is every bit of 5"8 but sometimes good things come in small packages.

  • Coco17

    I agree...lol

  • Coco17

    Yall crazy.???

  • Coco17

    Thats not true hun, the greedy broad kelis wanted more money. He has always paid his child support.

  • Coco17

    I left too she was dragging those songs waaaaay too long.

  • Coco17

    Nah sound wasnt on point but i try to see him everytime he comes to Atlanta. Im a huge Nas fan.

  • disqus_FW7pCIigCY

    Badu might end up pregnant by NAS..then she'll have 4 different baby daddies.

  • Crazy tee

    I’ll take Nas for $1000 Alex....The man is fine

  • ALLMINE?

    What? How would it be out? ???? everyone is out the closet and messing around? Hmmmmm

  • Coco17

    Ive never hard no one say anything about him being gay. Someone wouldve outted him by now if that were the case. Ijs

  • ALLMINE?

    I said I can't explain why I think it.. out him how? if he never been with a dude b4? I didn't say he had any sexual contact with a man ?..

  • millz

    Yesss I love him when he’s performing at a festival... he be sweating on his forehead mmmm mmm ?

  • Coco17

    I hear ya...thats how rumors get started. So glad im not famous. But people suspect everything about everyone.
