Soulja Boy is no longer keeping quiet about the robbery that went down at his college park home on New Year’s Eve Eve. The youngster hit up Big Boy’s radio show in LA Friday (Jan 23rd) with the following explanation:
“Basically I was at my crib and I had my album release party at my club that night. I got back to my house at around 3 in the morning and I was in the studio recording. So two of my homeboys was in the living room and Me and Arab we was in the studio recording. And somebody kicked in the door.”
“One dude ran in put the AK to my homeboy head, put him on the floor,” he continued. “The other two ran in – my homeboy jumped in the other room – so the other two dudes ran back so I peeped in the door and they running through my house with Ks and pistols – so I ducked back. I really can’t dwell on what happened after that, but it was a messed up situation [and] I’m glad everyone made it out alive.”
As to why this is the first time SB is speaking on the incident, the teen rapper said it was because he wanted to protect his younger fans. “I really don’t want to dwell on the entire situation because of my career – my music is pointed towards the kids and I don’t wanna give them that bad image on what actually went down.” (Source)

I’m glad everyone’s OK too. It’s sad that thugs feel they can just TAKE what someone has worked hard for…
I occaisionally check up on my favorite peeps and wondered about Griffy2Trillion the former leader of Hot 107.9’s A-Team. I got a pleasant surprise in my inbox yesterday confirming that Arlen “Griff” Griffin is still on the grind but he’s far far away from the “A.” Griff, the ruff voiced comic who woke up most of Atlanta’s working hip-hop heads is now chillin on a morning show in NEW ZEALAND! I know times is hard…but dayum! You gotta go overseas for work now-a-days??? Oh…and please take notes of what the aussies put Griff through on his first day of work…. Continue Reading…
As I was looking through my inauguration TiVo gems the other night, I came across Usher on Larry King Live. Mr. Raymond appearing on CNN is really no biggie, I mean…he sang for President Obama during the opening ceremonies. Right? Right. But you can never predict LIVE TV and Usher hilariously missed his que while he was jamming to the music at the youth ball. Ursh eventually caught up, but him singing while Larry King was calling his name had me quite tickled 😆
Of course the flix are still trickling in and I would be remiss if I didn’t post a few pics of the Atlanta Housewives at the 2009 Trumpet Awards. Lisa Wu-Hartwell and Ed Hartwell will forever hold the title of cutest couple. They look so good together! Sheree was doin what she does best and DeShawn was flying solo.
DeShawn Snow….is that WEBSTER chillin in the background?? Oh My! 😯
See all those workers in the background above? Well apparently they’re still waiting for a check! It’s been reported that super-producer Tyler Perry has accumulated at least 6 liens combined on his personal home and mega movie studio. The Atlanta-based producer is accused of amounting unpaid bills from the two projects that total slightly less than $200,000 and says the costs are “ridiculously unfair” and amount to extortion.
The contractors allege Perry refused to pay their final bills either for no apparent reason or because their work met with his arbitrary disapproval. They say he ordered work redone on impulse, deciding he wouldn’t like the stones purchased for an outdoor fountain, for instance, or deeming newly planted trees too short. “He wanted to do it his way,” said Brooks Hilton, a landscaping contractor who said Perry owes him $17,635. “He wouldn’t take any advice. I guess in Hollywood it works that way, but not in real life.”
Perry, though, said he withheld payment only for shoddy work or for undocumented charges and then only for a handful of the dozens of construction companies he hired. Even those, he said, still got paid hundreds of thousands of dollars each before he dismissed them. He sees the contractors’ complaints as a form of extortion and as part of the burden of celebrity. “There’s a Tyler Perry tax that’s put on things,”
