A source in Shawnna’s camp tells AllHipHop.com the former Disturbing Tha Peace Records performer was blocked from the event by Chaka Zulu, the BET Hip Hop Awards show executive producer. Zulu is also co-founder of DTP along with his brother Jeff Dixon and emcee/actor Ludacris. The source also claims Shawnna was replaced by Lil Mama in one of the annual cyphers.

Shawnna scored a number one hit in 2003 as a guest on “Stand Up” with Luda. She released two solo studio albums – Worth Tha Weight and Block Music.

AllHipHop.com will update this story as more details emerge.

AND ANOTHER ONE: Meagan Good Responds To Her Leaked Nude Pics, "You Should Be Ashamed Of Yourself!"

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 21-09-2014

 photo MeaganGoodThinkLikeManScreeningWashingtonsgX_t9rtDHvl_zpsc4ed992a.jpg

Meagan Good is the latest victim in the nude pic hacker scandal.  And she’s moved swiftly in addressing the whole situation.  Find out what the preacher’s wife had to say about her chi chi’s getting exposed all over the innanets…

Meagan Good is arguably one of the sexiest women in the game.  So we didn’t hear one complaint about her nude pics leaking.  To be fair, not many were complaining about Gabrielle Union‘s or Rihanna’s nudes leaking this weekend either.

The "nude" pics feature the Think Like A Man Too star lifting up her shirt to snap pics of her boobs in several different pics.  There’s also a separate topless pic shown in a dressing room of sorts.

And they’re clearly all snapped for someone special…..her husband.  DeVon Franklin is even seen in one of the pics, which is plastered all over social media networks, where she shows off her ta-tas over Facetime. 

Meagan took to her Instagram page to address the situation.  She has no shame in her game, and we’re not mad either:

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 21-09-2014

 photo betredcarpet2014_zps3f446cbc.jpg

The Tucker-Burruss clan of Kandi, Todd & Riley made it a family affair at the 2014 BET Hip Hop Awards Saturday night in Atlanta.  And so did plenty others.  You’ve seen the spoilers, now check out who all hit the carpet…


The red — or green — carpet was filled with reality stars and rappers you may…or may not..have heard of last nght at the Atlanta Civic Center.  And we’ve got a recap of who came out to be seen.

 photo rci_3119qed_zps169545a4.jpg

 photo carpet6_zps258717d1.jpg

Kandi, rocking Alice+Olivia pants and a Bailey shirt with Giuseppe Zanotti heels, and Todd hit the carpet together looking nice.

And Kandi’s girl Tameka "Tiny" Cottle was there to host the "106 & Park" edition of the carpet alongside Bow Wow:

 photo rci_2740qed_zps6bde88ec.jpg

She rocked a flirty, plunging dress and Cheetah Louboutin boots for the occasion.

 photo carpet_zps9674e866.jpg

We caught up with Bow Wow as well.

 photo rci_3607qed_zpsbd773b15.jpg

Tiny’s husband T.I. and his clashing outfit also hit the carpet.

 photo carpet9_zps35623fdd.jpg

He was even spotted chopping it up with Boosie as they passed each other up.

 photo 5fa5c8cb-7cd1-491d-8b92-189a3188409e_zps3b3cf841.jpg

Y’all know Boosie was HAPPY to set foot on this green carpet.

 photo ericaash_zps521e9980.jpg

"Real Husbands of Hollywood" star Erica Ash gave us everything with this pink Oliver Zhang frock. So cute!

 photo 7d332bfd-2932-4c00-b85e-629d7b42f489_zps10550804.jpg

Teyana Taylor kept it sexy in a sleek look, and made sure to have her man, NY Knicks baller Iman Shumpert, by her side as she chatted up guests on the BET carpet.  We spotted the two canoodling off to the side before Teyana went in front of the camera:

Back out on the carpet:


 photo rci_3385qed_zpsbf6feedd.jpg

"Love & Hip Hop Atlanta" star Scrappy had his adorable daughter Emani with him as he made his arrival.


 photo rci_2777qed_zpsdb124665.jpg 

 photo carpet2_zps6afd659a.jpg

"RHOA" star Porsha Williams threw on her nude sequin Gucci jumpsuit for a fly look.

And the surprise of the night:

 photo rci_3189qed_zps64412124.jpg  

Lil Mama looked amazing, hair and makeup wise.  We’re confused by the outfit, as usual, but chick looks DAMN good these days.  Her look was a custom one made by JOHN PAUL ATAKER.

 photo c401744a-3e5e-41d5-8530-5d827fa8405a_zps91d92b9f.jpg

French Montana threw on his Bulls jersey and too many chains as he hit the carpet solo.  Since he and Khloe Kardashian broke up, he didn’t have a PR tool on his arm this time around.


 photo 50aabcea-7375-4f32-bd26-a0072cc29924_zps256002df.jpg

Good to see rapper Jay Electronica in the mix.


 photo rci_3812qed_zpse158806a.jpg

Uncle Snoop hosted the Awards and hit the carpet for a few pics first.

 photo rci_3275qed_zpsabf98191.jpg

2 Chainz brought the fam out for some fun.

 photo rci_3780qed_zps4f2cf677.jpg

And then there’s this.  Joseline Hernandez…wearing Herve Leger…hitting the carpet with new hair and an interesting look.

 photo rci_2798qed_zps7709f75a.jpg

Her husband Stevie J looked surprisingly dapper.

But why do we get the feeling, especially since somebody sat them on the front row, that these two sure trying their damndest to reinvent themselves into the king and queen of dapper ratchetry?

MiMi Faust showed up to show off Giuseppe shoes and belt.

Meet Fantasia’s New Boo….COO Kendall Taylor

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 21-09-2014

 photo ScreenShot2014-09-21at31059AM_zpsf419766f.png

Fantasia’s revealed her mystery man to us over the weekend.  We already knew his name, and now we’ve unmasked his impressive credentials. Meet COO Kendall Taylor inside…


 photo kefddcdlc.png

Fanny’s got a man…and he’s seems to be a keeper. 

 photo Kendall-Taylor-121013.jpg

Known as her "Ken" doll, Fantasia Barrino has found love in Kendall Taylor.  Kendall lives in Charlotte, North Carolina and is the COO of Metro Transportation, LLC., a courier service (he’s been a partner for 6 years).  This year, The Lowe’s Pride Awards honored him at their 2014 Pride MBE Of Distinction Winner for his success as a businessman. He is a member of Men Who Care Global, the Charlotte Urban League, the CSMDC (Metro) RAC Committee, and CMEDI.

From what we’ve gathered on social media, Fantasia enjoys cooking for her "Ken Doll", working out with him, and the pair enjoy traveling. Over the weekend, they attended a wedding together in Atlanta. She also revealed that Kendall is the personification of a song she wrote ("Daydreamin") when she was 12-years-old.

I wrote this song years ago titled Daydreaming.. It’s On YouTube now ( the First song I had ever wrote) In the song I was singing about A very special presence that would come to me in my dreams every since I was 12 years old. He would tell me how beautiful I was and would always talk about my eyes and my smile. When it was time to wake from the dream he would asked me over and over please don’t go. The funny part is it was never a sexual thing it was just his presence and the love that I felt in the Dreams (I felt Protected and so very safe). I would hear him call my name *Fantasia* and I would go, I would just follow him wherever.. It would be long walks in Beautiful places and EVERYTIME It was so peaceful, it felt like a best friend somebody I had known all my life. The Only people I would talk about the Dreams to was My Mommy and @neek1064 I began to think that I would only feel that kind of love in my Dreams.. Well I Don’t Have That Dream Anymore because he CAME


Outside of those few deets, we hope Fanny gets off social media and doesn’t allow the outside world to mess this one up. She deserves love and it looks like she finally got a good one!  and we’re keeping an eye on the rings they’re both wearing on their ring fingers lately….


Listen to Kendall talk about his company here:

Rihanna’s NUDES LEAK In HACKING Scandal + Traci Braxton STRADDLES Husband Kevin During Concert Performance!

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 21-09-2014

 photo BxZlkazCQAAlPYG.jpg

Its a weeend of awlward moments apparenty.  "Braxton Family Values" star Traci Braxton performed her debut single "Last Call" while straddling her husband Kevin during a performance at Howard University’s Cramton Auditorium.  See what happens on stage inside, and get deets on Rihanna‘s nudes leaking (again)….


Gabrielle Union isn’t the only YBF celeb whose nudes were hacked and leaked over the weekend.  We’ve just learned that Rihanna was also a victim of the Cloud hacking scandal.  While Gabby reached out the FBI, we don’t expect a similar response from RiRi.  Don’t forget…she posted her tatas on Instagram for free and got her account shut down.  Plus, she had her naked pics leaked on the net years ago.

Today, two new pics surfaced…one showing her nipples (censored) and another showing her nipple and a shot of her butt.  They look to be taken during a fitting or inside of a private apartment of some kind. 

But….why did the hacker even bother?  Seeing Rihanna’s T-N-A simply requires a quick, fast Google search.  Same goes for the newest leaks…a quick Twitter search of her name will reveal all.


In other weird news….

 photo dsvddfefreer.png

Whatever the counselors at "Celebrity Marriage Boot Camp" told Traci Braxton and her formerly estranged hubby Kevin, it must have worked!  She was ALL over him during her performance at Howard University’s Cramton Auditorium recently as she crooned her new single, “Last Call.” Let’s just say when the bar closes…..she ends up in his lap.

 photo tracisjfefe.png

On Twitter, Traci revealed that she’ll drop her debut album next month.  Will you be getting it?


Get it….

Hip-Hop Rumors: What Happened To Love And Hip-Hop’s Joseline At The Hip-Hop Awards?

Posted by | Posted in Da Game and Industry News | Posted on 21-09-2014

It was all good and then it was all bad.

Joseline and Steve J rolled up at the BET Hip-Hop Awards, my spies tell me. All was well. Steve J was talking some stuff, mumbling about “n***as talking s**t” but that was way in the beginning of the show. Suddenly, towards the middle, things went left. As you know Snoop was the host and he was a really funny guy. And then there were others that were presenters and they were on some funny s**t too. From what I understand, Joseline was the object of several jokes and she didn’t like it. At some point, she ran out of the Civic Center’s may arena in tears. She retreated to a bathroom where she was crying uncontrollably, according to witnesses. Stevie J was by her side though. At any rate, she got herself together and apparently took to pictures with police. Ain’t that a bush! Anyway, nobody fully knows why she was all broken up, but that she likely let the jokes get to her.

I don’t know if they returned. I heard she was looking pretty hot though.

Hip-Hop Rumors: Murda Mook Disses Drake At BET Hip-Hop Awards!

Posted by | Posted in Da Game and Industry News | Posted on 21-09-2014

Yesterday at the Hip-Hop Awards in Atlanta, I heard it went down. And Murda Mook went in on Drake, dissing the boy. I heard Mook provided one of the highlights of the night and called Drake all the way out. I heard he said he would put Drake back in a wheel chair like his character on that show. And then he said something like “Degrass – over here ain’t green.” Something like that. But anyway, he’s really laid down the gauntlet for that.

Will Drake reply? Doubt it.
