Rapper Rick Ross celebrated his #1 album by dropping $250,000 on 6 Audemars Piguet watches for the featured artists on his album.
When Ross’ 6th studio album, Mastermind, hit #1 on the Billboard charts, Ross’ publicist immediately reached out to gossip tabloid TMZ to inform them that Ross hit up jeweler Rafaello & Co in NY last week and dropped $250k on six watches for a few of the artists who appeared on his album. That works out to a little over $41,000 (not counting taxes) for each watch.
With their better days behind them, TLC’s T-Boz and Chilli struggle to keep pace with the yougsters dancing behind them during VH1’s Super Bowl event: Six Nights and Six Concerts, at Beacon Theater in NY on Friday.

Singer Tiara Thomas, best known for her duet with Wale on his single “Bad”, explained how the groupie anthem came about.
“I was in Atlanta with one of my friends I went to school with; she was my manager at the time. She’s like,’Hey, let’s go to Atlanta for spring break, just to go somewhere,’ Thomas recalls. We went and I had a fake ID. I was under 21 at the time and we just wanted to go to the club. So we went to the club and Wale was there. It was like, ‘Hey, there’s Wale, let’s take a picture with him.’ Wale listened to it, and he really liked it,”
