All of Atlanta came out to support Hot 107.9’s annual birthday bash last weekend. The event was somewhat long winded beginning around 5:30 and ending way past midnight but it was a total A-Town celebration. All eyes were on Young Jeezy and Gucci Mane, as everyone expected some kind of drama to pop off but fortunately there was only fun and music and no sounds of gunshots or knife wounds to report.
My birthday bash summary? Keri Hilson rocked a new doo, Lil Duval rocked a “Fake Ass Chain,”Plies blew $50,000 in ones, Trey Songz was caught “backstage pimpin”, and Jeezy and Gucci Mane avoided conflict. That’s about the jist of it. Oh yeah…and there was one helluva finale performance!
Peep a few videos of some of the hottest performances of the night, as well as more flix from Birthday Bash and the Zone 4 skybox party below: Continue Reading…
One of the stars of the Atlanta version of BET’s College Hill series was apparently “hacked” and outed as gay on Twitter this morning. I don’t know who he pissed off, but apparently the person’s *cough* friend decided to do a little bit of detective work around 4:45am while they were sleeping and found nude pics and got a bit upset. All I know is… it ain’t safe to leave your twitter unattended.
Check out the photos below (Click at your own risk….NSFW!):
In his classic hilarious way, Lil Duval showed T. Pain how to really rock the “bling” minus the major price tag. Funnyman Lil Duval revealed his “Fake Ass Chain” during Hot 107.9’s Birthday Bash on Saturday and cracked every one up…

Yep…Lil Duval’s chain was the talk of the evening! Even T. Pain himself had to take notice of the “Fake Ass Chain” and reached out to the comedian via Twitter:
“I just want yall to know I fully support lil duvals fake ass chain. That dude has been the funniest mofo since I can remember. Keep doin it.” ~ T. Pain via Twitter
My sister in the spirit Crunktastically Fresh sent me over a slew of A-town pics yesterday while we were shootin the sh*t on Twitter.
Fresh knows how much I loves me some Twan and threw in Jane Fonda and Dallas Austin for the low low. This pic was captured a few years ago during Jane’s Atlanta premiere of Monster in law.
Some of y’all may be surprised to see Jane, a classic/cultured icon, throwing “gang signs” (as my mom calls it) but she totally reps the “A”…hell she dayum near got HALF of it in her divorce settlement from Ted! She owns this b*tch!
That’s how we get y’all. We send Big Boi over to schmooze…Dallas for the close and then “BAM!” You’re throwing “A” signs everytime you see a camera! Love it…Feel it…Embrace it! Yeessssss
An Atlanta man was convicted on Thursday of taking his 16-year-old first cousin to Metropolitan Parkway for prostitution.
Zaccheus Obie, 26, will be sentenced on Wednesday for one count of pimping a minor. He faces a possible 20-year prison sentence. According to testimony, police learned of Obie after the girl was arrested in May 2008. He bought her clothes and paid to have her hair done before she was sent to stroll Metropolitan Parkway. According to testimony, he took her money.
While the case involving his 16-year-old cousin has been resolved, he also is charged with raping the girl’s younger sister, also Obie’s first cousin. That case has not been taken to trial. (Source)
It was only about a year ago that Koch recording artist and Oomp Camp underground sensation, Baby D was set to release his first mainstream album “A-Town’s Secret Weapon” so I thought I’d dedicate my flashback spot to him. “Do It” really isn’t that old but it never really got off the ground since Baby D wasn’t around to promote it. He got locked up a few weeks before the album’s release date, allegedly for trafficking drugs. Last I heard, Baby D was still incarcerated without bond.
Hopefully he’ll be back on the scene soon. Maybe in about 5 to 10… *sigh*
Tiny and Toya are getting ready for the launch of their new BET reality show and have hit the TWEETS. As T.I. chills away at Summer camp, his boo Tamkea “Tiny” Cottle and her bff, Lil Wayne’s ex-wife Antonia Carter are working hard for the money. Tiny and Toya both have new twitter accounts and are pounding the pavement promoting their new show. I’m really quite surprised to see Tiny tweeting. Especially after that whole MySpace jump-off fiasco where she swore she “doesn’t do computers” but I guess change is always good. I wonder if she’ll bring Tip into the twitter fold when he comes home? Considering the fact that he said THIS a while back, I doubt it. But it would definitely be entertaining!
