It seems like the beef with Chris Brown and Meek Mill is in full blast.

Apparently, that lil situation where Rihanna and Meek partying caused more issues that just with Meek and his girlfriend, Rememeber, his Philly jawn got pissed? Read that here.

[Meek Mill Says Rhianna F**kin’ Up His Good Thang]

Anyway, there were rumor that Breezy got pissy too, like Meeks girlfriend over Meek partying with his ex-gf RiRi. Well, got dammit, he went and took Meek off of his upcoming album because he was just mad, I guess. Meek didn’t even let it get to him, he just tweeted what was once speculated. The only thing is he went back and deleted it. LOL! I suppose politics play their part from the streets to the tweets!

O . . . EMMM . . . GEEEEEEE!!! We Got Some EXCERPTS Former B2K Member Raz B's New TELL ALL BOOK .. . And He Claims That BOW WOW And CHRIS BROWN . . . ARE GAY!!!! (He Says Bow Used To POUND OUT Lil Fizz)

There are always going to be gay rumors that will follow any celeb, but this one seems not to go away. Is it me or is Raz trying to pull a Superhead move. Although if he was indeed molested or taken advantage of, this will bring a new light to the gay, and music communities. There have been other books like this with many accusations of male celebs with gay men and other male celebs, but for one reason or anther they never seem to come to light.
Will this be the scandal that rocks the music industry? We’ll see how long that will last.

MediaTakeout.com just learned that former B2K band member RAZ B is releasing a tell all . .. . where he is SUPPOSEDLY dishing the dirt on the ENTIRE MUSIC BUSINESS. The book, entitled This Boy’s Life is published through Corona Sky Production.

According to Raz . . . dang near EVERYBODY IS GAY. Raz is known for making some REAL OUTLANDISH allegations . .. so we’re gonna take all this with a grain of salt. Here is some of the more CRAZY ISH he’s putting in his tell all!!

On Bow Wow:
“Bow Wow was younger than all of us, but the record company figured his affiliation with us (B2k) would be great. I didn’t see it for myself but I was told by Fizz that Bow Wow and he got involved with each other. I didn’t put a lot of stock in it then. It would be a few years until I realize that Fizz wasn’t lying. In 2005 Bow Wow and Omari became “inseparable”. It wasn’t until rumors forced Bow Wow to end the relationships. The gay talk was hurting Bow Wow’s business.”

On Chris Brown:

“They say you never know who knows who. Chris Brown didn’t think about that when he attacked me online. I have a friend that’s very close to Chris’ camp who told me that Chris was involved with an up and coming songwriter Andre Merritt. So when Chris started going in calling people ‘gay’ and ‘fags’ I just dropped Andre Merritt’s name. I knew it was true when he decided to shut up.”

Wow . . . BREEZY and BOW WEEZY. We can’t believe that . .

Omarion Let’s Talk ft Rick Ross. Is this a come back?

MayBach O. AKA Omarion. No he is not changing his name but he is changing his brand and movement. I have to say that I like this track. It’s reminding me of what he had with his solo career.
As anybody knows a Bigge sample with Ross on it will make a hot single, look at Monica’s Anything, but we are going to need to hear more to be sure. Right now I feel that he has a winner on his hands
Pulling a new look together and staying true to who he is, O is bring a new sound and image to the Self Made Movement. It’s always a risk to be on a rap team, but it seems that he will do fine.
We look forward to hearing more form this team this summer and a mixtape seems to be in the works for O. As far as a B2k reunion, well that is still to be decided.

Jay-Z Gets Back Into “Hard Knock Life” Mode, Penning New Records

This is what we mean when we say that Hip Hop is taking over the world.

Rap mogul Jay-Z may feel like he is experiencing déjà vu with reports claiming the platinum-selling rapper is writing new music for Roc Nation princess Willow Smith to sing in the upcoming Annie remake musical film.

Young Hov, widely known for sampling the musical’s “Hard Knock Life” anthem in the 1990s, is signed on to steer the upcoming film’s soundtrack.

Jay-Z is writing new songs for Will Smith’s pop star daughter Willow to sing in the movie version of stage musical Annie. The rapper, who signed the “Whip My Hair” singer to his record label last year, has signed on to take charge of the soundtrack for the film. It’s not the first time he has dabbled in the musical’s tunes – his 1998 hit “Hard Knock Life (Ghetto Anthem)” sampled the song “It’s the Hard Knock Life” from the original musical. Actress and Oscar-winning screenwriter Emma Thompson is writing a new script for 11-year-old Willow’s film musical. (WENN News)
Last summer, Jada Pinkett-Smith confirmed speculation suggesting they had partnered up with Jay for the flick.

“He’s very professional, he’s a good partner, and we are about to do a movie with him, the Annie joint with Willow [Smith], so he’s a good partner…You know, we just have great teams and we have great partnership. It’s all about partnering. And that’s the thing that I’ve learned about being in this business. You can’t expect to do great things by yourself that you have to be able to partner up with people.” (“Great American Morning Show”)
In January 2011, Jigga officially tagged Will Smith and Jada for a joint business venture.

Will Smith, Jada Pinkett-Smith and their partners at Overbrook Entertainment have formed a joint-venture with Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter to develop and produce major motion pictures. The partnership between Will and Jada and Jay-Z began when the three decided to invest in the beauty line Carol’s Daughter. Their next venture together was when they joined forces again to co-produce the Broadway play “Fela!” Since then, Willow Smith, who is managed by Overbrook’s Miguel Melendez, has signed to Roc Nation and released first single “Whip My Hair.” (Billboard)
Following the announcement, reports claimed their first focus was on creating an Annie remake.

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith are planning to produce a remake of the 1982 film “Annie” starring the couple’s 10-year-old daughter, Willow. The film, which is based on a Broadway musical, tells the story of an orphan adopted by a wealthy man. Overbrook Entertainment, the Smiths’ company, announced today that it had formed a joint venture with rapper Jay-Z to develop and produce “Annie” and potentially other feature films. Jay-Z will serve as a producer on “Annie.” (Wall Street Journal)

Controversial VIBE Issue

Controversial VIBE Issue

I just wanted to say that this Vibe issue has a lot of people up in arms on Facebook and Twitter. If I had to weigh in on it I would have to say that Kandi and Tamar are on another level then Chrissy and Evelyn. In reality or should I say Fake-ality TV we now have too many shows that put women in a crazy and unflatering light, especially black women. I would never say that I have never watched any of the shows, but there really has to come a point where you say enough is enough. Other then Kandi I would never want my child or my little sister to emulate any of the other women that are on this cover. Now I will say that Evelyn is working on some other positive things to grow her brand, however that is over shadowed by her actions on Basketball Wives. What are we saying to young girls when we put the title of wife behind some of these women that have never been and may never be wives in there lives? What value is it that you need to be behind a successful man in order for you to stand in the spot light.
This is breeding a new generation of golddiggers. Not all of the woman on this cover embody that image, although that is tarnished by some of the other women that are on the cover.

GIRLS JUST WANNA HAVE FUN
REALITY TELEVISION’S VENGEFUL, ’BOW-THROWING DRAMA QUEENS GET PAID TO ANTE UP, CATFIGHT AND GO DUMB FOR A LIVING. THEY’RE ALSO FUNNY, THOUGHTFUL MOTHERS, SISTERS AND SELF-MADE BUSINESSWOMEN WHO’VE SPUN OUR THIRSTS FOR THEATER INTO BANKABLE FAME. CAN THEY LIVE? —BONSU THOMPSON
There’s a much-abused adage that’s referenced in chats, debates and tweets, usually in defense of questionable conduct: “Well-behaved women seldom make history.” That remixed Marilyn Monroe quote could be an unofficial slogan for the reality television explosion. Especially given scenes like one on the recent fourth season of Basketball Wives. While filming inside the pricey New York City eatery Cibo, a rabid Evelyn Lozada, the VH1 show’s most vocal star, stormed around the dinner table, lifted an uncorked bottle of wine and launched it at cast freshmen Kenya Bell, who’d previously called Lozada “loose.” The beverage whizzed past the head of BBW executive producer, Shaunie O’Neal and exploded onto the floor. Expletives followed, along with a plate, but no repercussions.

While networks have churned perverse drama like this into a ratings mammoth (VH1, Bravo and WE tv lead all cable networks in adult female viewing), the stars whose salaries average in the half-millions are left with much fandom, fortune and flack. Until recently, much of the outrage about going ratchet for ratings has been confined to social circles. But after viewing a later BBW episode—in which Evelyn leapt on the table this time—media personality Star Jones produced a petition in hopes of aborting Evelyn’s spin-off, Ev and Ocho, premiering in September. Jones stated: “The violence on Basketball Wives is horrible and disgraceful…VH1 is rewarding this behavior.”

Unfortunately, the majority of these mavens of mayhem are also some of the biggest public representatives for African-American and Hispanic women. While reasonable adults can relish in junk food programming as toffeed guilty pleasure, those same exhibitions pose risks for impressionable youth. How does a parent advocate lady-like decorum when Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Nene Leakes fetches a million dollars per season for misbehaving the most? VIBE opened the floor to four of the genre’s leading ladies and spinoff recipients—Evelyn, Kandi Burruss (Bravo’s Real Housewives of Atlanta), Tamar Braxton (WE tv’s Braxton Family Values) and Chrissy Lampkin (VH1’s Love & Hip-Hop)—in hopes of gaining insight on why these women are handsomely paid to seldom behave.
