Teyanna Taylor suspect in BEAT DOWN over CHRIS BROWN

Now I am not making any assumptions here just reporting the facts that were just sent to me from the guys over at TMZ. Getting arrested for assault over somebody talking shit about Chris Brown definitely is a bad look especially when her career is just getting in gear and her star is due to rise in a few days with the release of Madea’s Big Family. She is from Harlem though.

Law enforcement sources tell us … Taylor was hanging out at a recording studio in Burbank Saturday night when another woman made a comment regarding Teyana’s friend Chris Brown.

LA Times writes review of Hustla “Empire on the Rise” (starring Yung Brodee)

Hardly ever use this blog for self promotion but today I will. Check out the review of my mini movie Hustla “Empire on the Rise” starring Yung Brodee. Let me not forget everyone who worked on this and made it all possible. It was a great experience and we are getting set to come with Part 2 so stay tuned.

via Pop Hiss /LA Times

The “hood movie” has been an essential part of hip-hop for well over a decade. Partially pioneered by Master P,  the genre became a cash cow during the DVD boom of the early years of the last decade, with everyone from Game to 50 Cent to the Diplomats cashing in on the trend.

With the rise of YouTube and the popular online video emporium World Star Hip Hop, street-based reality films have tended to appear for free on the Web, and tend to boast a production value commensurate with third grade. Accordingly, keeping tabs on South L.A. rapper Yung Brodee’s productions has been a pleasant anomaly for the inconsistent genre.

[video] Wendy Williams & World Interview 2004 (Speaks on Homosexuality, Secret Societies, and Masons in Hip Hop)

Extreme warning if you do not want to here a raw interview about Hip Hop and homosexuality, Masons, etc. do not listen to this interview, because it is definitely not kind to your favorite rappers. You have been warned.

Damion 'World' Hardy

The original post was done on my blog a few years ago by my former business partner and continues to garner a ton of comments. With the Mr. Cee tranny controversy in full swing, it is a fitting interview to re-post. This is the pre-DWTS Wendy Williams of NYC radio frame and her interviews were probably the most controversial stuff ever to hot the airwaves.

[video] Woman films 2×4 FLYING through her Windshield HEAD ON

This was definitely some Final Destination type ish.

According to Wendy Cobb:

Ok- so I only posted this video because my son wanted to see if we could get 1,000 hits. And I thought maybe having a little fun with it might help me deal with it too. I disabled comments because people were being so incredibly mean. So far I’ve Bren accused of faking it (really?), been blamed for everything from the high price of gas global warming, and it was getting out of hand. Believe it or don’t, it really did happen. Analyze the why’s and how’s if you need to, but I only thought it was an incredible dose of reality and that people would be shocked to see it. And really people, why in the world would you have to be so hateful??? Pay attention at the 30 second mark. No- it wasn’t an April Fools joke, it really happened, and I was fine.


Entrepreneurs: Don’t Melt Down from 24/7 Workload

Definitely something that I have learned over the past six or seven months. Trying to work 24/7 is definitely not the path to success, it is a path to being very unhealthy and your skills eroding rapidly the longer you force your body into overtime. This is a great article that stresses that all you entrepreneurs get adequate rest to perform at peak performance.

“If someone gets overloaded, fatigued and bombarded with stimuli at all hours, at some point they’re going to suffer from decreased cognitive function, fatigue, difficulty concentrating and decreased ability to process information and make decisions,” says Dr. Michael Komie, a professor at the Chicago School of Professional Psychology. “It’s the same as pilots who are over-fatigued.” But unlike pilots, there are no rules governing how many hours entrepreneurs can spend working each day.

Japan officials decide to dump contaminated water into ocean

You can go over to CNN and read the rest of this long article but the truth of the matter is that things are not looking good in terms of the water being contaminated. While the world is concerned with Rebecca Black, Charlie Sheen, and the upcoming royal wedding, we are having a serious disaster over in Japan.

via CNN

Tokyo (CNN) — About 11,500 tons of radioactive water that’s collected at crippled Japan’s Fukishima Daiichi nuclear facility will be dumped into the Pacific Ocean, a cabinet minister said Monday, as workers prioritize dealing with a crack that has been a conduit for contamination.

These are the latest, but hardly the only challenges facing workers at the embattled power plant and its six reactors, which have been in constant crisis since last month’s ruinous earthquake and tsunami.

Authorities have decided to release excess water that has pooled up in and around the Nos. 3 and 4 reactors directly into the sea — a step that Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano called “unavoidable,” even though this liquid was contaminated in the process of trying to cool nuclear fuel rods.

The build-up of water could cause problems around the nuclear facility, which is 240 kilometers (150 miles) north of Tokyo, Edano said Monday.


Did HOT 97 DJ Mister Cee get ARRESTED for GAY SEX ACT in NYC?

To those who say this is just a rumor. This would be the foulest April Fool joke in the history of April Fool’s and why would HSK risk a serious defamation lawsuit reporting this and it be a total lie. No one would risk a lawsuit over Mister Cee, trust me.

Come on Mr. Cee? Having oral sex with young boys?  I have no idea how Hot 97 will try to sweep this one under the rug but this guy is obviously a closeted homosexual who has alot of things to deal with and getting arrested by NYPD is just one of them. If this is true The Finisher is Finished.

via HSK

Hot 97 Deejay Calvin “Mister Cee” Laburn (executive producer of the Notorious B.I.G.’S debut album “Ready to Die”) was busted by NYPD cops before being hauled off to jail and charged with lewd conduct. It happened this past Wednesday at about 5:00 p.m. That’s when cops approached a parked car and caught Mister Cee in the act of receiving fellatio from a man inside the vehicle. The 44-year-old music man was booked at Manhattan’s 1st Precinct, located at West Street and Watts Street.


Lil Wayne and Floyd Mayweather owe $9 MILLION more in TAXES

What is up with these guys who consistently are shaken down by the IRS? It would seem after the multi-million dollar pay outs they have made in the past they would find some people to handle their money and make sure the taxes are paid on the massavie amounts of money they generate every year.
The IRS filed a $5,610,034 tax lien against Carter on March 28 with the Miami-Dade County Clerk. According to the lien, which you can see below, he owes income taxes from 2008-09.

The IRS filed a $3,359,279 lien against Mayweather on Jan. 21 with the Clark County (Nev.) Recorder. He owes income taxes from 2009, according to the recorder’s office.


More Madea on the way, Tyler Perry Re-ups with Lionsgate

People who complain about his stereotypical images in his comedies and plays will be shocked to find out those movies have made a billion-dollars and will not be going anywhere anytime soon due to him extending his deal with Lionsgate.

via Inside Movies
“Together, Lionsgate and I have built the ideal filmmaker/studio relationship, and I’m thrilled that it will be continuing,” said Perry, in a statement. “We share an entrepreneurial spirit and have a great business rapport. But more importantly, Lionsgate has been incredibly affirming of my relationship with my audience — I’ve always had the artistic freedom to speak what I want, how I want, and when I want through my films.”

In the last six years, Perry’s 10 films grossed more than $520 million for Lionsgate at the box office. The studio has sold more than 40 million DVD and digital copies of his films, television shows, and stage plays. “Tyler Perry is one of the most powerful and unique entertainment brands in the world today, with a fan base that is virtually unrivaled in its loyalty and passion,” said Lionsgate co-chairman and CEO Jon Feltheimer, in a statement.
