B. Smyth's 2 singles prior to "Twerkoholic", "Leggo" and "Win Win" featured rappers 2 Chainz and Future respectively, but B. Smyth didn't want a feature on this song so he could stand alone as a new artist paving his way and path in the business.

Some of you weren't even born when the youngest in charge, Special Ed dropped his blazing debut album of the same name when he was a mere lad of 16. Propelled by the album's scorchers, "I Got It Made" and "I'm The Magnificent," Ed's album, Youngest in Charge, went on to sell more than 500,000 copies in 1989.
The Jamaican-born rhyme slayer followed up those hits with "Come On, Let's Move It" off his sophomore album Legal, which dropped in 1990 when Ed turned 18.

The bottle throwing brawl sparked at least half a dozen lawsuits.

Meet 9-year-old Lil Poopy. Like most kids his age, he loves hip hop music. But unlike most boys his age, he is behaving like a grown man; groping women's behinds, cussing like a sailor, and rapping about guns and drugs in rap music videos. His dad, Luis Rivera Sr., thinks what his son is doing is cute. Rivera is now under investigation by the Massachusetts authorities for child welfare laws.

Everyone was raving about Keyshia Cole's performance of "Trust and Believe" on 'Black Girls Rock'. She killed it! No one can sing about heartbreak and hurt and make you feel it the way Keyshia can. "You had my heart, but then you blew it," Keyshia croons with such emotion.
When Keyshia tells her best friend (Tae Heckard) that her boyfriend didn't call her back after she paged him, Heckard says "He really loves you. You know this."
But Keyshia, like few young women today, is much more aware of what true love is. She knows that true Love is not what a man says, it's what he does.
She's best known for her attention-grabbing dancing in a popular rapper's music videos in the early 2000s. The rapper has since faded into obscurity, but the cute little dancer went on to earn roles in television shows and even a few movies. Who is she?
R&B singer Bobby V recently resurfaced after a 5-year hiatus from the music scene. The "Anonymous" singer tapped reality show star K. Michelle to appear in his music video for his next single "Put it In". The video was directed by Greg of G.VISUALS in Atlanta.
Bobby V is still a cutie. Say what you want about him, but all Bobby needs is one good sexy ballad on the radio and you ladies will be throwing your panties at him again.
Rap mogul 50 Cent recently signed rapper Shawty Lo to his G-Unit roster though D4L. Fiddy flew to Atlanta over the weekend to shoot a music video for Lo's first single. Local rapper Jai Jai also appears in the music video. As you know, Shawty Lo left his longtime love, and baby mama, E'Creia to get back with Jai Jai who he met when the latter was only 15.
Jai Jai always said she would get her man even though he was with E'Creia. The two ladies occasionally fought over him. Jai Jai told everyone she would get him back, but most of her friends thought she was crazy. They're not thinking that now.
Sean "Puffy" Combs was one of the notable music industry veterans who didn't bother to visit rapper T.I. when he was locked up inside a federal prison last year. I hear T.I. took notes on who didn't stop by -- those notes includes everyone except for rapper Nelly who drove his tour bus to Arkansas to visit the rubber band man.
So it's interesting to see that T.I. agreed to appear on this Dirty Money track and in the video. These chicks are extremely boring to me. I still don't understand why Sean signed them. He should really give up the music thing and focus on his other ventures.
Cute low budget music video by up-and-coming rapper iQ (International Quincy). As you know iQ is the spawn of singer-turned radio DJ Al B Sure and sometime model/socialite Kim Porter. iQ's Twitter page is @ThisisMyiq. Follow him and let him know if this track is a hit or a miss.
Thanks to Thad over at ExclusiveAccess.net for sending these behind the scenes photos taken on the set of Shawty Lo's "WTF" video shoot in Atlanta yesterday with rapper Lil Wayne.
Wayne, a New Orleans native, has less than two weeks of freedom left before he reports to a NY state prison to serve out a one year sentence after pleading guilty to weapons charges in October. Wayne, 27, joins the growing list of rappers who trade in their sagging jeans for a prison jumpsuit while still at the top of their game.
