Ghostface Killah On Luda/Drake Feud

Ghostface Killah addressed the feud between veteran rapper Ludacris and Young Money star Drake. Ghost, for his part, dismissed the subliminal disses between the two rappers and says hip hop stars with influence should be focused on bigger things than beefing.
"It is what it is, it's rap music. I'm not trying to get into any little kid sh*t. You know what I mean," he said in an interview. "I'm a grown man, B. You know what I mean? Grown men do grown men things. We don't got no time. We gotta get this money, man. Unless these n*ggas are already sitting on it, you know what I mean, but enough of that. You know what I mean? We should be getting at the real enemy, you know what I mean? That had us oppressed for all those years. Not at each other right now."

Big Sean Discusses G.O.O.D. Compilation

Big Sean updated G.O.O.D. Music fans on the status of the highly-anticipated compilation album that the imprint is currently working on. While on tour promoting his "I Am Finally Famous" tour, Sean discussed the project.
"Compilation almost done and ready," revealed Sean. "Y'all can get that at the top of the year around spring time."
"Single's out soon, expect nothing less than just the f**kin' best," he added. "Me and [Kid] Cudi and Kanye got this cold-ass one. I only did, like, three, but I'm gonna do some more for it. It's gonna be fresh."

Tricky Named A&R Head At Epic

Producer/songwriter Christopher "Tricky" Stewart will be the newest head of A&R at the Epic label. The official announcement hasn't been made yet, but sources close to the label have indicated that the deal is expected to be finalized shortly.
In more label-shuffling news, ex-LaFace Records executive Mark Shimmel will also be positioned as a senior executive at Sony Music.
Stewart, a producer and longtime writing collaborator with The-Dream, has steered several major hits over the past few years, including Beyonce's "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)" and Rihanna's "Umbrella."

The-Dream Denies Lauren London Rumors

Apparently, The-Dream thought it was hilarious that the world believed he had gotten actress Lauren London pregnant. The Grammy award-winner dismissed the rumors via his Twitter page, just days after Lauren also said that the story was unfounded.
"Babymammadrama," he tweeted. "On the phone with LL, and Niv trying to sort it all out while dying laughing!!!"
"D*mn i guess i just breathe on them!" he added.
"She's not pregnant. : )" the singer/songwriter tweeted again later. "What about those turkeys i gave out they got no publicity but this sh*t is everywhere Are we that messed up?"

Kalenna Done With Diddy Dirty Money?

Diddy Dirty Money's Kalenna sounds like she's enjoying having time to focus on her solo career now that the group has--seemingly--run it's course.
"Life after Diddy-Dirty Money has been like waking up and smelling the roses, you know what I'm sayin' [laughs]?" Kalenna told SOHH. "I'm getting back to my true essence and its been a process of growth. I did a lot of writing on the album but the thing is, we're Dirty Money for life ... we did something that was never done before and if Diddy wanted to put another album out -- he could, because we have that much content. But right now, my main focus is my solo project."
"I'm really excited about being able to do my own project, the album's first single, "Go to Work" is one of those tracks that had me excited to see how people were going to receive it," she added.

Emily B. Isn't Fighting Kimbella

Emily B of "Love & Hip Hop" says don't expect to be a brawl between her and co-star Kimbella. Despite the now-infamous brawl between Kim and Chrissy in the show's premiere, Emily B says she has no interest in brawling and has no issue with Kimbella.
Kimbella recently admitted to dating Fabolous while Emily was pregnant with the rapper's child.
"She's that kind of girl. Ugh, I don't even want to go into that. I will say this, I have no hard feelings against Kimbella. We don't have no beef. At this point, this far along, she's doing her thing and I understand. It is what it is," Emily said in an interview. "It wasn't the time or the place. She had to go into those meetings and say that to those producers in order for them to get the information. She knew what she was doing. It's whatever. Personally, I would have taken that to the grave. I never would have thought that she would want to say that on national T.V., especially when your man works with him and that is his colleague. But, everybody's different. That was her decision and I guess she felt like she had to get it off of her chest or whatever, but it didn't play off well in the situation."

Slim Thug On "Occupy" Movement

Slim Thug admits that he's not the most informed person when it comes to the Occupy movement that's swept across the country, but the Houston rapper still voiced his opinion. Slim says he doesn't believe the movement is going to be effective--despite proclaiming that he doesn't really know what the protest's goals are.
"I Tweeted some stuff about it but I don't really know much about it," Thugga told SOHH. "I don't really get the whole meaning behind it. They're out there saying they don't like banks ripping them off or they don't have no jobs. The protests are real. I definitely think something is wrong. I don't know if what they're doing is effective enough. I've seen the police clearing them out in New York, handling them. I don't know how to picture it. It's definitely something f*cked up about 99 percent of people not getting paid [compared to the 1 percent of wealthy incomers gaining the majority of the concentration]. That's definitely f*cked up, and I support that, but I just don't know if that's the right way [to have their demands met]. They're too peaceful to me, they need to be a little bit more forceful. If you're going to just put some tents out there, then just let the homeless people stay there and you can go home. They can just sleep in front of those buildings."

Kyla Pratt's Tumblr Rant

Kyla Pratt posted on Tumblr about her daughter and the child's father after the Web ran rampant with rumors following her announcement several weeks ago that she was a mother. Fans speculated as to why the former child actress kept her pregnancy a secret, so Pratt decided to finally elaborate on the situation.
“Woke up this morning to some bullsh*t so i decided to blog about it."
“I announced a little over a month ago that i have a one year old daughter named Lyric. Ever since then there has been mostly negativity thrown our way. This is something that i knew would happen so THAT is why i delayed the process of sharing my happiness with this lovely world. I did not HIDE. I was out doing everything i normally do. Please believe i was not in the house looking at the wall waiting for time to pass. Jus because i didn’t publicize my pregnancy or try to make money off of it doesnt mean i am not proud of my daughter or her Father."
“While i was pregnant i didnt want to deal with any negativity. When you have a human being growing inside of you, they can feel every emotion you feel. i didnt know how i was going to react with my hormones going crazy. SO i decided, im not announcing anything. If someone catches a pic then so be it, but i was going to enjoy my pregnancy no matter what. I believe that is why my daughter is such a happy baby, because i didnt subject myself to this random blog bulls–t during the happiest time of my life."
“Now lets briefly discuss her father since he has been the subject people cant stop talking about. We have been together for a few years now. He has been a tattoo artist for about eight years and has been writing and producing music around the same. This whole he is a stripper and changed careers real quick so i wouldnt look crazy is some bulls–t. Just like every man out here, he found a hustle that had nothing to do with selling drugs, robbing people, or anything where he would be put in jail. A lot of people make assumptions about a profession based solely off of one experience you have had or something you have seen on TV. The club he used to work at years ago for (2yrs) was basically a competition where guys would compete for the most attention by creating the hottest dance routines and music in L.a, that I now see all over the music biz and videos you all love. Some dancers were into the frilly costumes. and a other just wore jeans, bandanas chucks and a tank tops (mine). He never Strip down naked or to a thong. His image was and is Compton, Hood. My man/Daughters father, is a song writer, HipHop Artist and a Well-Known Tattoo Artist. And has been doing these things for years. And is making money to take care of his Son & his Daughter the legal way so he can be here to raise them. When he releases his Music and Art Work he has been doing i guarantee u, i wont have to say anything else."

"I dont owe anyone an explanation about MY life. Just decided to set the record straight so people who think i CARE about their opinions will MAYBE give it a rest."

"The past is the past & the future is the future, and its Here."

"I love my daughter & I love her father. And would not change ANYTHING for ANYBODY"

"Thanks for listening”

Tameka Raymond Battling Usher?

Tameka Raymond is trying to take full custody of her children with R&B/pop superstar Usher. Tameka claims that Ush has neglected to meet all of the legal requirements in their co-parenting agreement. She says he has failed to obtain her permission before taking the kids out of state, he hasn't gotten her approval on nannies and he didn't allow her to have custody of the children during Christmas of last year.
She also says he closed her Saks 5th Avenue credit card and blasted a headline that says she wanted to take away his children.
"Haha I love how this guy manages to always be the victim. So masterful. Its amazing," she tweeted. "The headline is a lie, also its negative because it only tells a morsel. smh"
Tameka is reportedly also looking for an increase in child support payments.

T.I. Inspired By Eminem

T.I. revealed to Billboard's The Juice that he looked to fellow rap superstar Eminem for inspiration during what Tip thought may have been a developing drug habit last year. T.I. says he was worried that he was becoming addicted to the prescription pills oxycontin and hydrocodone following some oral surgeries.
"I haven't had a chance to speak to Em since I've been home," T.I. said. "I heard that while I was down, he was trying to get in contact with me, but I don't know if the dots just didn't connect. [Eminem] overcoming his own adversities, winning the battle against his own demons and continuing to break the mold and re-set the standard of what it means to be the most successful hip-hop artist in the game ... I salute that to no end."
T.I. also addressed addiction in general.
He also shared some words on what addicts can do to help kick their habits. "It starts with you on the inside," he said. "I can give all the advice in the world, but at the end of the day you just got to make that decision internally with yourself. You have to see that you are ready to make a change. Until that moment comes, all advice in the world is going to be in vain cause I'm going to be talking to a brick wall.
"Everybody can tell you what you need to do, how to do it, when you need to do it, how bad you need to do it," he continued. "But until you get that right ass whipping, as they say, and until you have hit rock bottom or have seen something in yourself that is so out of character and it displeases you so much that you just have no choice but to change it ... then you ain't going to see it."

Mannie Fresh Explains Cash Money Issues

Hip hop superproducer Mannie Fresh discussed in detail an incident that led to some of the ill will between he and his former label, Cash Money Records. According to Mannie, he was very close to working out a deal with Def Jam several years ago that Cash Money blocked at the last minute.
"I got this deal with Def Jam through Jay-Z," Fresh said. "Jay-Z reached out, he was like, 'I'll do a deal with you. You come to Def Jam and you do your thing. And I'm over there and I talk to Lil Wayne. I'm like, 'Hey dude, I got a deal with Def Jam and they pretty much are going to give me my situation, do what I want to do.' They were like, 'Just deliver a big song.' So I go to Lil Wayne, he does the song with me and soon as I get ready to put it out, Cash Money shuts it down."
"They were just like, 'Nah, you didn't get permission from us to do that,'" he reveals. "And I'm like, 'Wow, it's really that serious? That's kinda ugly of y'all to do that.' And I'm like, 'Wayne agreed to do the song.' And they were like, 'Well, Wayne can't speak for Wayne. We speak for Wayne.' ... So that was a learning lesson for me and it kind of gave Def Jam a salty taste too because they was just like, 'Every time we do something, if it's going to get shutdown, we really don't want to do this with you.'"

50 Cent Announces Mixtape

Rap superstar 50 Cent is commemorating the 10 year anniversary of his mixtape "50 Cent Is the Future" by releasing a new project called "Big 10." The new mixtape will feature 10 tracks and celebrates ten years since the rapper's Internet breakthrough.
“Its been 10 years since I put out '50 Cent is the Future,'” 50 Cent tweeted. “So I’m putting out the ‘BIG 10′ next week 10 smoking hot tracks #SK.”
50 also revealed an ambitious video approach for the mixtape, as well.
“I’m shooting videos for every song on the tape. The BIG 10 I got something for a haters ass it called hits lol #SK,” 50 Cent tweeted.

Drake Praises Rihanna

Drake spoke on his collaboration with Nicki Minaj on the title track from his latest album Take Care. Drizzy christened the leggy singer from Barbados 'the most iconic female' in music right now. Which may raise the ire of a few Beyonce and Lady Gaga fans.
"I think my goal was something that moves. I really wanted to bring her into our world but still allow her to be herself," he says. "I think she really shines bright. She comes from a place that’s so rich in culture, so rich in music, but being what I feel like, the most iconic female--period--right now—next to Nicki Minaj, of course… [Nicki is] just doing incredible, she’s my favorite person."
'Next to Nicki Minaj,' Drake? Really?

Kelly Rowland Supports Kim Kardashian

Kelly Rowland empathizes with newly-divorced Kim Kardashian. While the world lined up to mock Kimmy K and her abrupt divorce from NBA player Kris Humphries, Rowland says she can relate to what the reality star is going through. Rowland almost married NFL star Roy Williams several years ago and says now that she's glad she didn't go through with what would've been a bad decision.
“I wanted that wedding. I wanted to be married," Rowland says. “You can just make wrong decisions in life. That was all part of growing up. I just think it’s important to trust your gut. I did a lot of soul-searching afterwards, and I want to be married, so dating is part of that process.”

Machine Gun Kelly On Meeting DMX

Young rapper Machine Gun Kelly shared his experience working in the studio with veteran rapper DMX. X made a strong impression on MGK, who discussed their time together in a recent interview.
"Yeah, DMX is the realest person I've ever met in my life. He's exactly what he says he is," MGK said about meeting DMX. "Yeah, he actually came in when I was on top of a table rapping one of his songs, so it was like an awkwardly good moment. [What does Drake mean to hip-hop?] It's f*king cool. It's tight. You know, I learned from that. I learn from him when he speaks how he does, when he acts how he does towards other artists. It definitely makes me mature as a young artist, it makes me be like, 'Okay, maybe shunning people is not the route.' Not that I do that, per se, but I definitely do have a lot of competitiveness in my blood, where I'll be like, 'Sh*t, muthaf*cker, I want that number one spot.' But when you see Drake who has the number one spot so willingly give it all, it's cool."

2 Chainz Blasts Cocky Rappers

Atlanta rapper 2 Chainz voiced his disapproval of rappers and their egos in a recent interview. The former Playaz Circle star says that too many hip hop artists are preoccupied with appearing cool and indifferent to each other and it's hurt the camaraderie in the game.
"I think everybody [in the game] got too cool, the whole about coming into the room and sh*t," he said. "It's like all of us [rappers] know we're in the room, but n***as act like they don't see each other...that sh*t is what's f**king up the game. I ain't got to dap every n***a down, but at [least] say 'What's up.' That sh*t's what took [me] a little bit further than the more arrogant [artists]...that's the little sh*t that might separate from another n***a, 'cus I'll be in the airport and pull that move [and] I'll [say], 'What's up?' when I hear my name...I don't know how to fake talk on the phone, I don't know how to listen to my headphones [and ignore someone]...I could have my headphones on for real, and if I hear you, I'll still acknowledge you. You know when n***as start getting them checks...they [get arrogant]."

A-Mafia Disses NYC?

Harlemite A-Mafia had some harsh criticism for the New York City hip hop scene. The rhymer says that hip hop's birthplace hasn't done anything to restore its place in the game over the last few years. He says that not being true to itself is what has killed rap in the Big Apple.
"Weak, weak, weak, weak, weak, weak, weak," Mafia told SOHH. "W-e-a-k. NYC is weak right now. Period. I don't care who I offend, man. You know why New York is weak right now? They're not doing what they want to do. They're doing what they're dictated to do and when you do stuff like that, it makes your craft weak. Listen man, [they need to] be [themselves] and represent the people that put them in the place they're at in the first place. A lot of these rappers, they neglect the people that put them in the position in the first place. That's when you lose. If the streets put you in position, it's all right to make big records and represent other places and other people, but you gotta always show love to the people that put you in position. You can never neglect the people that put you in position and a lot of these big rappers, that's what they do. They neglect the people that put them in position and then when they fall off, they try to always go back. The big rapper will always try to go back to the people that put them in position but it's too late. That's why I do this for the streets, man."

Mack 10 Owes T-Boz Money?

Former TLC member Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins has filed for bankruptcy protection and according to reports, her ex-husband/baby daddy Mack 10 has to shoulder some of the blame. This is the second time T-Boz has had to file in under a year and reportedly she is only earning about $1200 a month from her TLC royalties.
But while the Grammy-winner owes her creditors $768,642.99 in mortgages on her $1.2 million house, she is also owed roughly $250,000 from her ex-husband.
Mack 10 owes T-Boz the money for back child support payments.
T-Boz previously blamed Mack 10 for a home in her name that was facing foreclosure in 2008.

Bow Wow Facing Tax Issues

Rapper Bow Wow owes a significant amount of money in back taxes. TMZ has reported that a tax lien has been filed in Florida against the rapper, stating that he owes the government $91,105.61 in taxes from 2006.
The Young Money rapper joins an ever-growing list of hip hop stars facing tax troubles.
Nas, Lil Wayne, Jermaine Dupri and several others have run afoul of the IRS in recent years. No statement has been issued from Bow Wow's camp regarding the story.

Wyclef Responds To Foundation Criticism

Wyclef Jean is addressing a recent New York Post article that questioned the machinations of his Yele Haiti organization. The Post story claimed that Yele Haiti awarded millions in less-than-ethical contracts. Some of those contracts even went to the family members of individuals affiliated with Yele Haiti.
The Post claims that of the $16 million dollars Yele Haiti raised in 2010, only $5.1 went to the country following the 7.0 earthquake that killed almost 300,000 people.
Wyclef issued a letter to AllHipHop denying the allegations:
"I started Yele in 2005 because I wanted to help people that were helpless in my home country of Haiti. People who didn’t have a voice, people who didn’t have resources, people who had mostly been forgotten. Since Yele launched six years ago we have helped close to half a million people. I will always love and serve the Haitian people until the day I die.
The NY Post piece entitled, “Questions Dog Wyclef’s Haiti Fund” is misleading, deceptive and incomplete. The Post conveniently fails to acknowledge that the decisions that Yele made were a response to one of the world’s most catastrophic natural disasters in modern history and required an immediate humanitarian response. There were no roads, no clean water, no sanitation, no banks, no electricity, no infrastructure. Immediate decisions were made to save lives and alleviate suffering. We made decisions that enabled us to provide emergency assistance in the midst of chaos and we stand by those decisions. We did the best we could with the available resources.
I am proud of the way that Yele handled the crisis on the ground in 2010. We were able to feed, clothe, provide medical assistance and shelter for more than 250 thousand people in need. What the article doesn’t say is that the construction projects funded by Yele Haiti were responsible for rebuilding an orphanage, building a temporary assistance facility, and had constructed a system of out door toilet and shower facilities in Cite Soliel one of the largest slums in Port-au-Prince.
The Post never highlights that Amisphere Farm Labor was responsible for preparing and delivering close to 100,000 meals. The Samosa SA property referenced by The Post was located in the vicinity of the largest tent camps in Port-au-Prince. Yele chose that location because it was closest to the people it needed serve. All of these facts as well as photos and testimonials were readily available to The Post for their story. Unfortunately, they chose not to include these facts and instead chose to imply that Yele “squandered” donors money.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
Finally, the percentage of funds used is consistent with NGOs and Not For Profits operating in Haiti at the time. I have acknowledged that Yele has made mistakes in the past, including being late in IRS filings, but that is old news. When I entered politics last summer, I transitioned from being a board member and chairman of Yele Haiti to a supporter. The new and good news is that Yele under new leadership, despite efforts to undermine its credibility and effectiveness, continues its mission to serve people in need."

Game Clowns Matt Barnes?

While the reality TV world is buzzing over the split between "Basketball Wives" star Gloria Govan and Los Angeles Lakers forward Matt Barnes, rapper Game has decided to throw his own two cents into the mix.

Gangsta Boo On Three Six Mafia:

Gangsta Boo shared her enthusiasm for having worked with Eminem and Yelawolf on Wolf's track "Throw It Up." The Memphis rapper says that she enjoyed collaborating with the Shady stars.
"There's a song I got on Yelawolf's new album featuring me and Eminem," she says. "I'm on the chorus. I wrote the chorus. I wrote my verse. Eminem shouted me out in his verse. I just think it's a dope ass song, a dope ass collaboration."
Gangsta Boo also discussed her history with Three Six Mafia, both the good and bad.
"I went to school with DJ Paul. He saw me rapping in a talent show...Everybody liked me. Paul kept asking me to be on more and more projects that led to me being in the group," she noted. "I was sixteen. I was young. It was fun. A lot of the sound you hear now is the sound that we created."
"I would have kept my publishing," she says. "I would have not mixed business with pleasure...It was more on some Biggie and Kim type sh*t [with DJ Paul]. That and before I had left the group, I would have advised Gangsta Boo to ride the wave a little more. But, I'm still here."

Shawn J Disses Ludacris On Wax

Field Mob was formerly affiliated with Luda's Disturbing tha Peace imprint, but the two parties split on bad terms.

"You made a song about me, you shouldn't have did that/You know I know you a p*ssy boy," Shawn J raps, "Luda, you know I know you a p*ssy -- I murdered you on 'Georgia' and 'Satisfaction'/You do numbers but I'm the one that raised the bar -- Why did Shawnna leave? Where's I-20 at? I Hustle & Flow, you played yourself, Cris, you Skinny Black -- Left your p*ssy label and then I got right -- Redman wannabe, straight a** kisser/Luda you a stripper booty, fake a** n*gga/Oh God d*mn light skinned Lionel Richie looking big mouth bass face a** n*gga/You know how I kick it, you know how I move/You a lame, n*gga, you pop, you my Ja Rule/DTP's a slave plantation, ei ei o..."

Despite the fact that he and T.I. had some 'tense' words back-and-forth on Twitter, the G-Unit head honcho says the two are okay.
"Look how much you fools have been tweeting about me and @tip I spoke to him last night you sh*t heads should be tweeting about streetking," 50 said.

But that didn't stop Nicki Nation from continuing to bombard the singer/actress with angry tweets.

NBA Is Back Tentative Deal Reached

Sides reach tentative agreement on deal

Posted Nov 25 2011 7:03PM - Updated Nov 26 2011 4:14AM
NEW YORK (AP) -- NBA owners and players reached a tentative agreement early Saturday to end the 149-day lockout.
After a secret meeting earlier this week, the sides met for more than 15 hours Friday, working to try to save the season. This handshake deal, however, still must be ratified by both owners and players.
"We've reached a tentative understanding that is subject to a variety of approvals and very complex machinations, but we're optimistic that will all come to pass and that the NBA season will begin Dec. 25," Commissioner David Stern said.
The league plans a 66-game season and aims to open camps Dec. 9.
"We thought it was in both of our best interests to try to reach a resolution and save the game," union executive director Billy Hunter said.
The Christmas Day deadline created a sense of urgency because that schedule is traditionally a showcase for the league. This season's three-game slate was to include Miami at Dallas in an NBA finals rematch, plus MVP Derrick Rose leading Chicago into Los Angeles to face Kobe Bryant and the Lakers.
A majority on each side is needed to approve the agreement. The NBA needs votes from 15 of 29 owners. (The league owns the New Orleans Hornets.) Stern said the labor committee plans to discuss the agreement later Saturday and expects them to endorse it and recommend to the full board.
The union needs a simple majority of its 430-plus members. That process is a bit more complicated after the players dissolved the union Nov. 14. Now, they must drop their antitrust lawsuit in Minnesota and reform the union before voting on the deal.
Because the union disbanded, a new collective bargaining agreement can only be completed once the union has reformed. Drug testing and other issues still must be negotiated between the league and the players.
The settlement first was reported by
Participating in the talks for the league were Stern, deputy commissioner Adam Silver, Spurs owner Peter Holt, the chairman of the labor relations committee, and attorneys Rick Buchanan and Dan Rube. The players were represented by executive director Billy Hunter, president Derek Fisher, vice president Maurice Evans, attorney Ron Klempner and economist Kevin Murphy.
When last talks broke down, the sides were still divided over the division of revenues and certain changes sought by owners to curb spending by big-market teams that players felt would limit or restrict their options in free agency.
On Nov. 14, players rejected the owners' proposal, which included opening a 72-game schedule on Dec. 15, announcing instead they were disbanding the union, giving them a chance to win several billion dollars in triple damages in an antitrust lawsuit.
Two days later, players filed two separate antitrust lawsuits against the league in two different states. On Monday, a group of named plaintiffs including Carmelo Anthony, Steve Nash and Kevin Durant filed an amended federal lawsuit against the league in Minnesota, hoping the courts there will be as favorable to them as they have been to NFL players in the past.
Now, players will dismiss that lawsuit and get back to the business of basketball.
The previous CBA expired at the end of the day June 30. Despite a series of meetings in June, there was never much hope of a deal before that deadline, with owners wanting significant changes after saying they lost $300 million last season and hundreds of millions more in each year of the old agreement, which was ratified in 2005.
Owners wanted to keep more of the league's nearly $4 billion in basketball revenues to themselves after guaranteeing 57 percent to the players under the old deal. And they sought a system where even the smallest-market clubs could compete, believing the current system would always favor the teams who could spend the most.
Initially, the salary cap emerged as the biggest obstacle. Owners first proposed a hard cap, but players fought hard to maintain the current system that allows teams to exceed the cap through the use of various exceptions.
The league was adamant the system needed some adjustment, because the old rules gave too many advantages to teams who could afford to keep adding to their payrolls. So the league's proposals targeted the highest-spending teams, seeking to eliminate the use of the midlevel exception by teams over the luxury tax and prevent them from participating in sign-and-trade deals.

Kanye West Addresses Lawsuit

Kanye West's legal advisors submitted a brief addressing a lawsuit filed by a man named Vincent Peters, who claims West stole Peters' idea for his hit “Stronger.” The rapper cites German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche in an effort to convince the court of appeals to uphold the dismissal of Peters' claim.
"it would create a dangerously low threshold for establishing copyright protection over otherwise commonplace words and phrases," wrote West's attorney, Carrie Hall.
Peters' claims West's hit borrows from his own 2006 song, which he says he gave to West's business manager, John Monopoly. Both songs quote Nietzsche's “That which does not kill us makes us stronger." The original case was dismissed earlier this year. .

DMX is committed to turning his life around the troubled rapper says that he wants to be an example for others. The rapper discussed his current outlook in a recent interview.
“There were times where it appeared I had nothing to hold onto. Nothing to help me get through that. I’m a man of faith, and it’s good to know there are others out there like me,” he said. “Be grateful for the fact that you can see clearly. I appreciate the continued support, and I’m sure you have noticed, but I will never let you down in terms of the message and the delivery of the message. It’ll always be honest, it’ll always be to the point and it’ll always be uncompromised.”
He also discussed his taking part in Dr. Drew’s “Lifechangers."
“I was on there because hopefully, I was able to change somebody’s life and be a positive influence," he shared. "Because there are so many negative things said. People don’t know the real me. Those are types of things that I not only enjoy doing, but I do them on the regular. I don’t do it for the fame, I don’t do it for the publicity. I do it because it needs to be done. So it’s great to have that side of me shown.” .

Chelsea Handler Probes Drake

Drake was grilled by talk show host Chelsea Handler during a recent appearance on Handler's hit late night show "Chelsea Lately." The Young Money rapper was asked about his relationship with labelmate Nicki Minaj.
"Oh yeah, what's the deal with you and Nicki?" Handler asked. "Like in penetration context? Am I being confusing?"
Drake laughed nervously as Chelsea continued to go 'there.' "Didn't you guys--there's rumors that you guys were..." Handler said. "You were hitting that, right?"
"Really? Is that a rumor?" Drake said. "Ah, no, I'm a huge Nicki Minaj fan."
"I'll take that as a confirmation," Chelsea replied. "I like her a lot too. She's great. I'm very happy about both of your success. Not that that really matters to you but I think you're very talented as does everyone and Nicki as well. So if you guys end up together, I can support that."

Slim Thug's Getting Healthier

Rapper Slim Thug discussed his new, healthier outlook in a recent interview. The Texas rapper becomes the latest rhymer from the Lone Star state to focus on slimming down. Both Paul Wall and Mike Jones have shed pounds in recent years.
"With the weight sh*t, I was going to the doctor and I used to be on 5 mg of blood pressure pills. Then they upped my sh*t to 10 mg, or maybe higher than that, I don't remember, they upped my sh*t and was saying my sh*t was real high," Slim explained. "So I was like, 'How do I get off this sh*t?' I don't want to take no pills for the rest of my life, and they were like, 'Well, you got to lose weight. That might help, and change your diet.' And I did that. It still ain't f*cking helped."
"I'm still taking the pills but I got used to it, working out, running," he added. "We run. I do some sh*t called Fun Fitness. I invited everyone out to come run three miles. We usually get 30 people out there. ... [Paul and Mike losing weight?] Yeah, that's a coincidence like a muthaf*cker. I know Paul had to get the Lypo sh*t [surgery] or whatever, but I haven't even seen Mike, honestly. I don't know, I can't even speak for him. I ain't even really seen him so I don't know if he works out as much as me or what."

Black Eyed Peas 'Final' Show Tonight

The Black Eyed Peas will begin their 'indefinite hiatus' after tonight's performance in Miami, Florida. The Peas have fought back rumors that they are breaking up, that Fergie's quitting the band and other stories that have emerged since they announced they're upcoming break.
We always have two cycles of records and then we take a break," said will, who is gearing up for the release of a solo album. "And then two cycles of records and then a break. When we take breaks you know, we work on side projects and get our personal stuff in order then come back and make beautiful music. We think beautiful music."
Fergie has admitted that she wants to focus on starting a family with her husband, actor Josh Duhamel.
“[Y]eah, that's one of the things that we want to do," she said. "I've just been touring since 2003 and like anything things get monotonous and your doing the same thing every night. I'd like to go days without wearing make-up and watching my football games. Doing my footwear collection and my fragrances...Just going where the day takes me."

Trina On Being A Femcee

Trina discussed her beginnings in the male-dominated rap game in a recent interview. The Miami rap star says that she was primed for a breakthrough when she initially emerged in the late 90s/early 2000s but that she also feels men didn't see her as an equal.
"Of course, rap was still a male-dominated game," she says. "And I came into it around a bunch of guys like Trick Daddy and Rick Ross, who were just real strong dudes. But coming up among men, you get that hardheadedness, that toughness about you. So I got the best of both worlds, because I had the guys there to give me the tough part, and then it was up to me to just keep my sexy going. It kinda balanced out!"
"I wouldn't say I was considered an equal," she added. "I was just a new chick who was fierce, b*tchy, raw, sexy. And there was a lane for it. I've worked with some of the greatest guys in the game, and they've always treated me with the same amount of respect, as if they were just working with another dude."
"Now there are so many new, talented females coming up in the game," she added. "And the ladies will have a lot to say in hip-hop. It's gonna be huge. Watch out."

Kelis On 'Artists' Vs. 'Pop Stars

Kelis broke down her definitions of what it means to be an 'artist' vs. what it means to be a 'pop star.'
“To me the best artists are the people we believe, and so I think those are not the pop stars," she says. "Those are usually the ones that, you know, are not always perfect. That’s the difference between being a pop star and being an artist. I think the word artist — I say this all the time — gets thrown around so lightly. It’s like the word love. You can’t put the two [together], they’re not the same. I think neither one is right or wrong, but I want to be in a group of believers. I want people to believe me because that’s what art’s about. It’s about someone finding a connection in who you are. Seeing [themselves] in it. Or wanting to see [themselves] in it.”
“Honestly my advice to new artists is always, ‘If you can do something else, you should,’" Kelis added. "Because I think that what makes artists great is that they literally can’t do anything else. You think about all the people that you’ve loved in the past or all the artists or musicians or painters or whatever. They do it because if you don’t get it out, it becomes something negative, it becomes something too much, it’s overwhelming. I think if you’re wanting to be an artist because you want to be…you probably shouldn’t do it. You should do something else. It’s easier.”

Slim Thug On Twitter

Rapper Slim Thug says his Twitter addiction has gotten him in trouble in his personal life before. The rapper discussed his social media habits and how they've affected his relationships in the past.
I never post pictures out of my own phone, like rarely do I post a naked picture. I might have posted a couple of them, but most of the time, like 90 percent of the time with naked pictures, it's all coming from muthaf*ckers sending it to me," Slim said in an interview. "Different people who follow me might send me a crazy picture, I retweet it and put a crazy face on there. ... It's always been like that. They always send me nasty sh*t and sometimes I might want to do that sh*t, or sometimes I might chill, like if I'm with a girl in a relationship, she'd be in my ear so f*cking much I might not retweet naked pictures as much. But I'll still do it. I've even lost relationships behind Twitter because I'm so reckless on there. I feel like I got to be me, man. If I'm going to be with somebody, they're going to be with me as I am. They ain't going to be changing me to no square or no sh*t. I ain't going to change and not be me. If you can't adapt to that, f*ck it."
