Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 31-08-2012

Another helicopter arrival for another one of hip hop’s richest men.   Diddy was spotted landing on the Helipad in NYC, with his artist/girlfriend Cassie trailing behind him.

 

Pics inside…

In the shortest shorts possible to show off her modelicious bod, Cassie and her Isabel Murant high heeled sneakers ran off the helipad to catch up with Diddy after their arrival today in Manhattan.

The twosome spent this week chillin’ at a house on the water in The Hamptons.  Diddy tweeted a few pics, which were quickly stopped once the news of his good friend Chris Lighty‘s death surfaced.

I knew him as "Baby Chris"…I still can’t believe it..WTF IS GOING ON?!?….FUCK!

Mr. Combs will be heading to Vegas Saturday to host a party at the Paris Hotel.

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 31-08-2012

Authorities in New York have officially ruled the death of music exec, Chris Lighty, a suicide….

We told you earlier about the body of Chris Lighty being found being found with a gunshot wound to the head, and now, officials have classified it a suicide.

Sources reports that Chris shot himself in the ard of his home in the Bronx following an argument with his estranged wife, Veronica, about their divorce and the hefty debt he owed to the IRS.

50 Cent, a close friend of Chris, shared his thoughts saying:

“I am deeply saddened by the loss of my dear friend and business partner Chris Lighty.

Chris has been an important part of my business and personal growth for a decade. He was a good friend and advisor who helped me develop as an artist and businessman. My prayers are with his family. He will be greatly missed.”

Chris is credited with brokering 50′s deal with Vitamin Water that eventually led to the rapper’s $100M+ payday.

Chris Brown’s Chicks Draya & Karrueche Smooch For MINT SWIM + Evelyn’s "Nightline" Interview Promo

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 31-08-2012

Well isn’t that…cordial.  Draya Michele, star of "Basketball Wives: L.A.", hosted a party for her swimsuit collection Mint Swim last night.  And her apparent new bestie, Karrueche, was once again by her side partying it up.  They do have a lot in common–like men.  Pics of Chris Brown‘s girls and the other L.A. BBW’s partying it up, plus a sneak peek of Evelyn Lozada’s "Nightline" interview tonight…

Draya kicked it with Chris in the past, but now he’s with Karrueche Tran, and Drayan & Kae seem to have become fast besties.  That’s convenient for Mr. brown.  Especially since Draya admits to dabbling into lady parts herself every now and then…

Anywho, it was Draya’s All White party in L.A. for her Mint Swim collection.  She copped herself a new R8 and showed it off at the party, and also snapped pics of her girls for Instagram:

Glora & Laura Govan were there with the newest BBW Brooke Bailey, plus Bow Wow‘s baby moms Joie:

Joie’s on the far right.

Fun times for the ladies.

 

And tonight on "Nightline", Evelyn Lozada tells her story for the first time since the domestic violence situation with estranged husband Chad Johnson.

Unfortunately your browser does not support IFrames.

Check out a sneak peek above.  A few interesting quotes from Ev’s interview with Amy Robach:

On walking away

"It’s the hardest thing in the world to walk away from someone that you really love.  But you have to walk away because I have to protect myself."

On how she feels about Chad now

"I believe he loves me. I believe he needs to get help.  He’s a good guy that made a bad choice. He loves football and he’s very driven and a great dad. He made a bad choice that destroyed his life, and I hate that I’m connected to that."

On what really went down that night

"He was gone to me, like, it wasn’t him.  He got out of the car, really, really quick and ran into the house, and I said to myself, ‘I need to get out of here.’  I said to myself, ‘I’m never going to go through that again, ever.’  I don’t think any woman should ever have to feel like that or be fearful of her husband."

Evelyn’s full interview where she pours out her heart about being a victim of domestic violence airs tonight on ABC at 11:35p EST.

First Look At "Tamar & Vince" + Lloyd’s "All Of Me" Ft. Wale

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 31-08-2012

Tamar Braxton & hubby Vincent Herbert are gearing up for their spinoff reality show, "Tamar & Vince."  Check out the first sneak peek, plus Lloyd‘s brand new track, inside…

Premiering Sept. 20th right after "Braxton Family Values," Tamar & Vince kick off their own show on WeTV.  In the new sneak peek, we see the twosome still butting heads over career, Tamar’s mouth, and that cutie pup Miracle.  Will you be watching?

 

And Lloyd is back with a new single.  The crooner just dropped his brand new single "All of Me" and tapped Maybach Music’s Wale for the track.  Lloyd penned the track with the help of The Exclusives.  And the Cassius Jay-produced track is the first original music officially released by the 26-year-old since his 2011 Zone 4/Interscope album King of Hearts. Lloyd is currently finishing his new mixtape, while also working on his yet to be titled 5th studio album, which will fall under his Young Goldie Music label.

 

I’ve always thought Lloyd was pretty underrated.  And collabo with Wale is indeed a good match.  You feelin’ the track?

Hip-Hop Rumors: Are Shyne & Max B Cut From The Same Cloth?

Posted by | Posted in Da Game and Industry News | Posted on 31-08-2012

Fresh off of his Twitter vent on Diddy, Shyne has jumped back online to defend Max B. Both Max B and Shyne didn’t “snitch” and ended up getting heavy federal time for it. Earlier this week, Max B’s conviction of 75 years in prison was for his part in a 2009 robbery that left one man dead. Although Max B wasn’t there, the jury declared that he was the mastermind and he was convicted. This conviction means that he will not be eligible for release until the year 2042.

Shyne knows a thing or two about being behind bars, and decided to show some support for Max B on his Twitter page. Check out what he tweeted below:

“Free Max B!,” he tweeted August 26th.

“”@michieogryboy: Free max b!”bigga velli the don !!!” max b could’ve rolled over but real g’s don’t fold. All the way to the electric chair”

“RT Max was the most waviest RT @WORLDGANGLAND: RT MAX B. APPEAL DENIED. #FREEMAXB #FREETHEKOMRADE @ORIGINALSHYNE” (Shyne’s Twitter)

I guess these two are cut from the same cloth. Would you snitch to escape a 75-year sentence? I wonder if Shyne could do it all over again, would he have placed the blame on Diddy?

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 31-08-2012

Keyshia Cole and her husband Daniel Gibson chatted it up on Power 105.1′s "The Breakfast Club" this morning.  Find out what she said about her music, her family reality tv inside……

 

Keyshia Cole and her husband Daniel "Boobie" Gibson chatted it up with The Breakfast Club where they discussed her upcoming Woman To Woman disc, her reality show "Family First" and her friendship with K. Michelle.  

Keyshia opened up about being a mother saying it’s a wonderful feeling and said she will always put her family ahead of her career. 

The couple then dished on how the were working with the same stylist and that’s how they hooked up.  Keyshia played hard to get at first because she didn’t want to be with anyone…but Daniel was persistent. 

She then revealed that she thinks the departure of Ron Fair from Interscope, along with being pregnant ,were the main reasons her Calling All Hearts disc flopped.  She added (and Daniel agreed) that she was VERY moody during the pregnancy.

She says Woman To Woman is different because she is happy in her life and the happiness comes out through her vocals.

Keyshia also dished on her new friendship with K. Michelle saying,

"I feel like, when I came into the business you have that somebody that you say, ‘She set limits for me and know that I can reach that plateau’, and I like I am that for K. Michelle like Mary was that for me.

Whoever comes after K. it’s gon’ be all G. I’ve already done a lot of things that people are tryin’ do and I’m gonna give you the best advice to you and if you call me I’m gonna let you know what it is, my personal feelings and my beliefs about the industry and anything I can do to help… as long as it’s not money."

And on relationships, she revealed that she admires Jay-Z and Beyonce:

"I love in my mind to look at Jay-Z and Beyonce because I think that he is a guy that’s hood but he got his business together and I think he respects his woman regardless of what that is.

He respects her doing her thing. If that’s her doing sexy clothes, if that’s her singing whatever song she wants to sing, heartbroken, happy, whatever, he supports his woman."

Hip-Hop Rumors: Is 50 Cent Bailing On His Headphones Company?

Posted by | Posted in Da Game and Industry News | Posted on 31-08-2012

It looks like 50 Cent is having some trouble with Bradenton company aka Sleek Audio, LLC, the company he partnered with for his “Sleek by 50″ wireless headphones. 50 Cent has officially filed a lawsuit against the company for $285,000, the amount he invested in the company as well as an additional $61,429 in back interest and an additional 15 percent for any debt as well as reimbursement for his legal fees.

According to the Miami Herald, the company is claiming that 50 defrauded them when he took their idea to a competitor, SMS Audio. According to the lawsuit, “Sleek would have never borrowed money from Jackson or allowed him to invest in its company had it known that Jackson would ultimately use this tactic (of misusing the money) to steal its design, technology and headphones,” the company said in an un-sworn court statement.

If 50 did take their technology to a competitor, that pretty shady.  Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine, the owners of Beats By Dre can rest easy, it looks like 50 Cent is out of the headphone game.

Sidenote – 50 Cent released a statement today regarding the tragic death of his manager, Chris Lighty.  Below is the statement he released to Billboard Biz:

“Chris has been an important part of my business and personal growth for a decade,” said 50 Cent in a statement through his publicist. “He was a good friend and advisor who helped me develop as an artist and businessman. My prayers are with his family. He will be greatly missed.”

R.I.P. Chris Lighty.
