President Obama is proposing an idea to raise taxes for people making a million dollars and more a year to the same as middle income tax payers, but the republicans are voting against it. How are you not willing to pay to help your country. Makes no sense!
If you haven't seen or at least heard of the fighting showdown between Meeka and Tami on the latest episode of Basketball Wives then you must really be living under a rock. Now, in almost every reality show itsÂ become the norm for a public fight to break out at least once during the season. Now these reckless actions are jumping from the screens of reality TV to REAL life.Â Check out this video where two classless females on a subway think its ok to start throwing punches even though one of them has their young childÂ around. I'm sure after you finish watching this your reaction will be the same as mine...*shaking my head*......
When So So Def rapper Da Brat jumped into the hip-hop scene in the mid 90s, we all saw her has the stereotypical tomboy with braided hair, baggy clothes and all.Â Â
But recently Da Brat decided to switch things up and "bring sexy back" with her latest photoshoot at VIBE Magazine. This hip-hop hunny is now showing everyone a different side- from her hair, to her clothes, and even her attitude. Da Brat has finally embraced femininity to the fullest. THANK GOD!!!
Singer Monica and NBA star Shannon Brown renewed their vows this past weekend in Los AngelesÂ in front of a crowd of nearly 300 family and friends. The wedding was a classy and exclusive event and I got the wedding pics RIGHT HERE! Some of the couple's celebrity friends were also in the building including Brown's best man Kobe Bryant,and Monica's good friend La La Vasquez.
Love was definitely in the air as you can clearly see in the video below that shows just some of the wedding highlights.
Alicia Keys and Swizz Beats managed to produce one of the cutest celebrity kids I have seen in a while and right here I have the exclusive pics of the couple and their baby spotted out in New York City.
The couple's child namedÂ Egypt Daoude Dean was born last October and appears to be one happy, healthy baby boy. Even though people might still see Alicia Keys as a "homewrecker", I'm willing to look past all that hype, give credit when its due, and I wish this family the best of luck.
Lloyd came through to 106 & Park yesterday to premiere his new single "Be The One" and alsoÂ show off a new hairstyle. Check out the pic below!!!! I'm not a huge fan of the new look but I will admit it is something different and unique.
Wait...Pause!!! Miguel is now claiming that Lloyd is really jockin' his style because supposedly he was the original creator of this hairstyle. Even though we see Miguel as the sensitive, R&B songbird who has recently come out-of-the closet, this nice-guy persona changed when Miguel had some not-so nice words for Lloyd via Twitter.
Beefing' over social media is not something that I think highly of, but beefing over a hairstyle just might be the lowest of lows......
But I gotta admit I did get a good laugh out of it hahahaha
Aside from being a radio personality, I also like to think up new ideas and products. My newest project- Tuck-its- is the must have accessoryÂ to deal with those annoying hanger loops that can ruin even the cutest outfit. Check out my websitehttp://www.tukits.com/ to learn more about this great idea.
Go to yakaboutit.com and leave a comment about what you think about this product.
Nobody can tell me that the latest food craze isnât the result of a weed headâs nightmare.Â What does it sound like to you?Â Fried Kool-Aid?Â Fried Pepsi?Â Â Krispy Kreme Chicken Sandwich?Â Now that last one alone is proof that someone was smoking the cheeba and woke up in a foodless house and serious munchies in mind.Â How else do you explain these type of concoctions?
âChickenâ Charlie Boghosian came up with these crazyÂ ideas and according to Hip Hop Wired, he soldÂ between 400Â and 600 orders served at the San Diego County Fair. During the fair he alsoÂ went through 150 pounds of Kool-Aid powder and 1,500 pounds of flour.Â Yikes! Right?Â He must have got a special order somewhere in there for Snoop and his weed smokinâ crew.Â It doesnât sound like you can be fully sober to eat it, but apparently itâs a hit.
So, the moral to this story is, try something crazy.Â Your craziest idea mayÂ have you laughing all the way to the bank!Â Check him and the Kool-Aid dunkinâ process out.

There is major talk about this guy Jimmy "Henchmen" Rosemond. If you do not know Jimmy, heÂ is the CEOÂ of Czar entertainment andÂ Â once was the manager to known artist such asÂ The Game, Too $hort, and Shyne.Â Since Tupac's birthday just passed, where he would of been 40 years old, thereÂ has been major talk from the source's mouth of Dexter Isaacs that he was supposedly hired by Rosemond to rob and kill TupacÂ .
He said that he was paid $2,500 to complete the job of killing Tupac. Isaacs also claims to have evidence of a chain that he snatched from Tupac when the killing happened. But where is the evidence, it is talked about but it has not surfaced yet.Even though Rosemond's attorney stated firmly "it's a flat out lie", could this story be true or is Isaacs just trying to start something.
Take a look at Isaacs full statement and decide for yourself:
Isaac's full statement:My name is Dexter Isaac. On Monday, May 23, 2011, James Rosemond released a statement in which he named myself and another individual, a Mr. Winston Harris (who I do not know), as government informants. I would like to clear the record on that statement: I have never been a rat for anybody and I do not have any deals nor was I made any promises by any government agency for information on Mr. Rosemond. Mr. Rosemond has crucified good reporters like Chuck Philips, at the LA Times, and Alison Gendar, at the Daily News, for telling the truth about him and his activities. He claims they had no proof that he was a rat for the government, which is an outright lie, because Mr. Rosemond, you signed a proffer agreement with the U.S. Attorney's office in New York on 10-20-1998. Mr. Rosemond, I have copies of your presentence report from North Carolina dated 1-13-1997 and other documents about you working with the government sending people you befriended to prison so you can maintain your own freedom. I have met with individuals on whom Mr. Rosemond has told.Jimmy, I say to you: I have kept your secrets for years. You have never been arrested because of me, or anyone of our friends because of me. How dare you call me an informant! I have stayed silent in prison for the past 13 years, doing a life sentence like a real soldier should, when you and everybody have turned your backs on me. I have never gotten any help nor asked for any help from you or anyone since being locked up.As a matter of fact, when I was first notified a couple years ago that the feds and Chuck Philips were investigating you, I wrote you and sent you everything they sent me. I kept it real with you because that's what real G's do. Anyway, that was before I found out that you were, in fact, already a turncoat rat for the government. Mr. Rosemond, if I was an informant like you, I would've been home years ago with my family, not doing life in prison.Now I would like to clear up a few things, because the statute of limitations is over, and no one can be charged, and I'm just plain tired of listening to your lies.In 1994, James Rosemond hired me to rob 2Pac Shakur at the Quad Studio. He gave me $2,500, plus all the jewelry I took, except for one ring, which he wanted for himself. It was the biggest of the two diamond rings that we took. He said he wanted to put the stone in a new setting for his girlfriend at the time, Cynthia Ried. I still have as proof the chain that we took that night in the robbery.Now I'm not going to talk about my friend Biggie's death or 2Pac's death, but I would like to give their mothers some closure. It's about time that some one did, and I will do so at a different time. Jimmy, you and Puffy like to come off all innocent-like, but as the saying goes: You can fool some of the people some of the time, but you cannot fool all of the people all of the time.Mr. Rosemond, I ask you: Are you going to flip on Puffy when the feds get you? To save yourself like you have done in the past? Because that's what a rat does. So in closing, we shall see who the rat is, in the near future
Can someone tell me what Antoine Dodson was thinkin?? Who ever said that this was a real song to perform. He is coming out waving and got his "Hair Did" to make a grand entrance and peformance.. CAN WE SAY HOT MESS...
Ok Beyonce ......LOL
Have you see the transformation that Fat Joe had. It is crazzzzy! So the word is that Fat Joe lost 80 pounds in a year and dropped 8 sizes.. So now the question is what does he do with his name? Is it still fair to call him Fat Joe or does it just drop to Joe??
On another note, is it just me or does he look like a totally new person. I don't think I would recognize him out anywhere but he looks so different. What do you all think.. Surgery or did he do this through working out!
Check out what MediaTakeOut has to say about Rohan Marley saying on Twitter that he is not the father of Lauren Hill's soon to be sixth child. He is the father of the other 5 children that Lauren Hill has. He is speaking loud and clear on Twitter and responds by saying it is someone Else's. DRAMA!

*Kimberley Locke is now using her clout as a celebrity gained from her American Idol to take her ambitions to the next level. The next level could very well see Locke on her way to becoming the next Oprah Winfrey, according to CYinterview.com.
After achieving fame from that reality television show, Locke has cornered the market and secured a talk show host gig that could take her career to superstardom, something many people didnât expect.
âI do feel like this is that moment for me. How did I end up here? Immediately after American Idol, Iâm very goal oriented. So I have my short-term goals, my short-term goal was to get a record contract and get my music out there so people could remember me. Then my long-term goal was to actually host a television show. The past two years I have taken meeting after meeting after meeting, making the rounds to be seen in front of the people who could make that happen.
It just so happened that I got that phone call from ABC and they wanted to meet with me. It was one of those things where I obviously feel like I put it out there in the universe and the universe conspired and I had to do my part as well. But I put it out there and here eight and a half years later, Iâm doing exactly what Iâd set out to do on my 10 year goal. I think that it will change my life. I think itâll change my career.â
After scaling the mountain, being tripped down to the valley, Locke has risen again in uncertain industry that has made mincemeat of many wannabe Hollywood careers.
âIâve always said I would rather take 10 years to build the foundation for a 100 year career than be a flash in the panâ¦I completely understand why celebrities or sudo celebrities go off the deep end and lose focus and lose themselvesâ¦One day youâre on the top and the next day youâre in a valley. But just as fast as you went to that valley, you can go back on top again. Thatâs such an emotional rollercoaster, the spikes and the drops.
âI think Iâm really excited that, itâs been a slow build for me, but itâs been the perfect pace as well because I feel grounded. I feel like I have a solid group of people around me now. I feel like Iâm headed in a great direction where my feet are still plated on the ground.â

This video is hilarious. The cartoon actually looks like the real rappers. The funny thing is who has Stevie Wonder driving the bus??? Where are they going with him not being able to see a thing! lol I really admire the person who thought of this creation because it actually shows the truth about what the hip hop world is coming to. You have Gucci with a tat of a ice cream cone on his face and you have Waka Flaka who can't even count. Do we all remember on the 106& Park interview he wanted to major in Geometry. Is it just me or is that not a major??
These rappers are doing this to themselves. They talk about nothing that makes sense. To be honest Lil Wayne is about the only rapper out of this group who's lyrics are crazy. His flow makes you want to hear more of his music , the others make you want to turn off the radio... IM JUST SAYING!!!
Mike Tyson has a small role in the movie "Hangover 2" and he should be happy to get what he gets but it is funny to hear when you find out what others are getting for staring in the movie. Of course 200,000 k thousands is a lot and is a great amount to anybody, which is the amount Tyson is getting paid but others such asÂ Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zack GalifianakisÂ ,Â will each be getting paid around 5 million dollars.Â That is a huge increase if you ask me. On top of that these men will also get paid 4%Â of first dollar gross which can even out to millions more. CRAZY MONEY!But can we blame them. Tyson is no actor and has no business receiving to much money doing a small role in the first place. He checks in to be the lowest paid star in the film "Hangover 2"..On another note Victor Whitmill, the tattooist who created Mike Tyson's tattoo on his face isÂ fillingÂ a lawsuit againstÂ Warner's Bro because he says that in the mocvie the man who woke up with the tattoo on his face just like Tyson's had no permission to use, or reproduce the creation and is also claiming copyright infringement. WOW.!Â Â Â
Ukailya Lofton, a student at Overton Elementary School in Chicago, turned up for her school photo on picture day with Jolly Rancher candies tied to her braids after she had seen the style in a magazine.
Her computer teacher asked her to pose for a photo with her braids hanging round her face and told her: âMy husband is not going to believe this.â
That night she posted the cell-phone pictures on her Facebook page with the message: âRight! This is for picture day.â
Another parent whose child is the teacherâs friend on Facebook let Ukailyaâs mother Lucinda Williams know that the girlâs photo was on the teacherâs page and people were mocking the hairstyle.
The comments that appeared on the teacherâs Facebook page said things like: âI laughed so hard my contact popped outâ, âyeah this is foolishnessâ and âIf you are going to make your child look ridiculous the least you could do is make them matching.â
When a furious Ms Williams notified the school, the teacher removed the photo and apologised but Ukailyaâs mother is demanding she apologise directly to her daughter.
She told the Chicago Tribune: âWhat bothers me is that she still hasnât apologized to my baby. No child should have to go to school to be bullied by their teacher.
âShe wasnât even suspended, and an apology is not enough.â

People- We MUST do better! Read this story below about Young Buck's recent arrest!
-Partyspree.comG-Unit rapper Young Buck was arrested for failing to appear in court on a previous violation.... G-Unit rapper Young Buck was arrested for failing to appear in court on a previous violation. The Associated Press reports that Young Buck, born David Darnell Brown, was stopped when police witnessed his black Cadillac Escalade weaving in and out of traffic near downtown Nashville. Police said that Brown was cited last July for driving with suspended license and while his license is currently valid, his record showed an outstanding warrant for the charge last July. Young Buck, 25, was released on $1,000 bond and is due in court Feb. 27. The rapper was in Nashville supporting designer Gino Green and promoting his upcoming album Buck the World which is due in stores Mar. 20.
If you haven't heard, Rihanna and Ciara supposedly have beef for no real reason! The ladies have even taken it as far as going back and forth on twitter. Sometimes I really think that people just do this for attention and this is one of those cases. Read below and see for yourself.
Ciara: I ran into her recently at a party,' she said on the E! show. 'She wasn't the nicest.
'It's crazy, because I've always loved and respected what she's done in fashion. It wasn't the most pleasant run-in.'
Rihanna was quick to respond, tweeting: 'My bad ci, did I 4get to tip u?
'U gangsta huh? Haaa.'
Ciara, 25, replied: 'Trust me Rihanna you don't want to see me on or off the stage.'
At which Rihanna laughed: 'Good luck with bookin that stage u speak of.'
'Pure comedy,' responded Ciara.
But the two obviously realised they had taken their public spat too far.
Rihanna, 23, was first to backtrack, saying: 'Ciara baby, I love u girl! U hurt my feelings real bad on TV! I'm heartbroken! That's y I retaliated this way! So sorry!'
To which Ciara gratefully responded: 'Rhi, u know its always been love since day 1! Doing shows and everything. You threw me off in that party! Apology accepted. Let's chat in person.'

Do you remember what happened between Iyanla Vanzant and Oprah? Well this is their first time speaking in 11 years! Watch below and see how things went. Personally, I think when Iyanla got a little bit of shine she got big headed. My advice to all upcoming artist is to try to remain humble and don't burn bridges. Stop trying to live out of your means by rocking expensive jewelry if your rent is not paid!
As we all know Nicki Minaj has butt pads, but you wouldn't think that it wouldn't phaseÂ Regis Philbin of the "Regis & Kelly" show.
After her live performance, Regis gave Nicki a little love top on her rear end after complimenting her on the outfit.
People can't help but to be "awed" by the amount of silicone stuffed in Nicki's pants. Even Regis had to cop a feel.
Soon after Nicki tweeted âLOL. I was in shock!â I wonder if she was as shocked when Rhianna got her "feels" on last week during a a concert performance.
Beef seems to be the main course of Hip Hop. What happened to unity, empowerment, and using your voice for change?We depend on certain artist to deliver certain messages, but Lil Kim is delivering beef to Nicki front door service.Â While at a night club in Nicki's hood in Queens Lil Kim thought it was only best to let the crowd know that Nicki is dead weight to Hip Hop by her standards. âI got more love from Queens than this b---- Â Â do!" âI will erase this bitchâs social security number! First of all, I donât even need a record right now, Iâll kill that bitch with my old sâ!â Lil Kim Rambled.What you think about that?No Love straight Hate. Hip Hop already knows Kim is the original "Black Barbie", no doubt. Kim should be tickled that someone wants echo her style.Â Diana Ross pays respect to Beyonce forÂ keeping up the legacy, Usher and Chris Brown dance together, now Kim needs to take Nicki as an understudy and kill all that noise. A Collaboration would be nice. . .Â If not Kim's just gonna have to bring back that FIRE!!!
Your first teachers should always be your parents.
MSNBC and The New York Times recently conducted a research study on black males and the academic achievement gap between them and their white counterparts, and the numbers are crucial.
"Only 12 percent of black fourth-grade boys are proficient in reading, compared with 38 percent of white boys, and only 12 percent of black eighth-grade boys are proficient in math, compared with 44 percent of white boys." Reported Trip Gabriel.
What is going on?
Parents, YOU HAVE TO CARE MORE THAN THE TEACHERS...
If these numbers and this video doesn't make you want to do something about our young black men and their futures I don't know what will. . .
Gucci Mane made CNN yall... Guess why? Because he is back behind bars... When will he learn?
Yesterday in Atl he was spotted and charged withÂ driving on the wrong side of the road, running a red light, andÂ damaging government property. Can you say "Anger management." Of all people why would Gucci be playing with the police?
Check this out . . . After a verbal dispute with an unnamed person things got physical, and when the police instructed him to back away from the other person he didn't listen. WHAT?Â They were tryna help him out for once but had to handle things as usual when it comes to Gucci; pepper spray and forcefully arrest him after resisting.
And the mugshots just keep coming...
Ladies ask yourself what's the real reason why you cant find a good man.
Do you complain too much?Â (Be grateful)
Are you too picky?Â Â (Make up your mind)
Do you have a list of qualifications?Â Â (Edit & Revise)
Are you too independent, too cocky, and too caught up with work?Â (Be Balanced)
Are you still chasing after the same men?Â (He is an X for a reason)
Are you willing to settle for less?Â (Hopefully not)
Are you a "mad black woman"?Â (Cheer up)
Are you Ego Trippin'?Â (Get over yourself)
Ladies there is a mirage negotiation video on You Tube that will help you answer all of these questions. Maybe you are in your own way of finding Mr. Right . . . Just think about all of the excuses that you've been using lately; and how about that attitude?
For the past month T.I has had everyone guessing the amount of time he was gonna get in prison and the count down is about to begin with his 11 month sentence.
Earlier this week TIP had an interview and tried to play the media and his so called haters claiming that few support or understand him. What is he talking about? He needs to stop crying and be a man about his actions. No one owes him any mercy. For all I care he can cry me a river. Stop committing crimes it's as simple as that.
This man has the nerves to use his past for the way that he acts now. EXCUSES.Â In his interview he stated that he learns lessons by being incarcerated. . . Obviously his sentences are too short and he needs more time to learn.
Enough became enough for R&B singer Mario this weekend. . .
Mario's drug addicted mother, Shawnita Hardaway, filed assaults against him after him breaking furniture and pushing her against the walls of her apartment. Mario was taken to jail and released on a $50,000 bond.
In 2007 Mario starred on MTV's documentary series Think "I Won't Love You to Death: The Story of Mario and His Mom revealing his childhood growingÂ up with a mother addicted to Heroin.
There is only so much a person can take. At the end of the day he was loves his mother and had to show her Tough Love. This man aired his life to the public willingly looking foward to change and this was how his mother paid him back.Â It doesn't get any realer than that. Some people never change, and it's unfortunate when it's the people you love the most, your parents.
A lifestyle full of materialism, tight clothing, and gluttony
shouldn't fit any servant of God's description.
I know that you've been hearing it all just like I have and if you know anything you know that people who get caught up in scandals and allegations like Bishop Eddie Long are the ones who keep people from the church.Â Beyond the 25,000Â people that attend his church he isn't fooling anyone. This man was the first to stand up Gay rights and mirage and we all know how that turns out... Its always the one who hasÂ something to hide that feels the need to defend their lifestyle indirectly. POINT BLANK PERIOD.
Ask yourself this . . .
What Bishop keeps jewelry in the office drawer?
What Bishop uses an iPad to read his sermon off of?
What Bishop sends pictures of himself in a muscle shirt to youth congregation members?
What Bishop spends $350,000 on Bentley?
He has already been forgiven but still has a lot of answering to do. . . Check out his words to CNN and New Birth Church yesterday.
While 25,000 (+)Â peopleÂ are standing by his side there are court cases, complaints, and two young been that have been wined and dined to testify against Eddie Long. So while he says he wont cast the first stone I hope that he is praying hard. He should have thought twice about his transformation of turning boys into "men".
I remember when it was okay to stand up for your kids, but I guess that was back in the day... Last week enough was enough for James Jones. His 11 year old daughter was being bullied on her way to and from school every day on the school bus. It was said that she was being pushed around and had condoms thrown on her despite her Cerebral Palsy.
All I'm sayin' is that this is ridiculous but it had to be done. Pops wasn't playingÂ CHECK OUT THIS LINK
I CAN'T imagine my child being picked on and me not saying anything... WHAT DO YOU MEAN?? My Father stood up for me but he never went to jail, but trust they didn't pick on me anymore. . . Kids are killing themselves and growing up mad at the world and this is why.
Earlier this week Gregory King, father of Jennifer Hudson's deceased nephew Julian King, was caught making a Promo video for his new album outside of the murder scene of his son.Â You, like me are probably thinking "Is he CRAZY and SERIOUS?" Well you know I had to let you see for yourself. . . Check out this link to YouTube brought to you by HipHopNews24-7 Dot Com
Recently released from a year and a day's incarceration, Tip Harris and wife Tiny "vacationed" in the down town Los Angeles police station flaunting matching handcuffs . Cruising around the LA streetsÂ in a Maybach supposably sippin' on sizzurp, Ti and Tiny were pulled over by Ti's best friends, the LA Sheriffs Department!!!!
Styrofoam cups, sizzurp, and probation equals not a good look... But hey Tiny says she's got her mans back. With matching handcuffs she got way more love for him than any women I know.Â .Â . Ladies and Gent's let me know how you feel about this one!!!

Today I spent some time pulling weeds and grass from around my veggies.Â I've eaten salads, tomatoes, herbs, squash beets, peas and most recently potatoes from my garden so far!Â I'm excited about the crops to come!
