Gucci Mane (real name: Radrick Davis) hasn’t been seen around town much these days and it’s not because he’s out of town touring and doing shows.
According to Ozone Magazine, the rapper has been forcibly placed into rehab for 28 days!
Turns out Narcotics Anonymous isn?t so anonymous after all. An NA attendee tells OZONE that their regularly scheduled meeting last night was interrupted by a nearly hour-long standoff outside the facility at Riverwoods Psychiatric Center in Riverdale, GA (on the south side of Atlanta).
Reportedly, members of Gucci Mane?s entourage ? including his manager and lawyer ? pleaded with the rapper to get help, causing quite a scene outside the hospital. His lawyer constantly reminded him that rehabilitation was the only alternative to facing more jail time and ultimately Gucci relented, turning himself in for a 28-day program around 8 PM on October 14th.
I commend Gucci on acknowledging he has a problem. At least he realizes he can get help now instead of waiting on the authorities to force him, like some other rappers I know. Standing O!

Soulja Boy and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson cover the November 2010 issue of XXL Magazine. The cover is causing quite a stir online in that Fiddy is hiding his face and rocking what appears to be a sado-masochistic face mask.
Maybe we’re all reading too much into this (or perhaps I’ve been hanging around too many ghay boys) but the way Fiddy’s leaning on poor lil SB, it looks like he’s showcasing his “prize pony” … if you know what I mean. *wink wink*
They both reveal in the issue that they have a mutual admiration of one another.
SouljaBoy on 50 Cent:
“Being black with money, from the ‘hood, struggles and coming from nothing to something, of course you’re going to share the common struggles,” the young MC said. “You going to have people hate. You going to have people that change on you, and all that. So of course, watching 50, and him going through what he did ? if there wasn’t no 50 Cent, there would be no Soulja Boy.”
50 Cent on SouljaBoy:
“If I had the wish to be another artist, just for right now, it would be Soulja Boy.”
Isn’t love great! What do you think of Fiddy and Soulja Boy’s cover shot?

An author published a book way back in 2007 accusing Bishop Eddie Long of having homosexual relationships. Reuben Armstrong, a Dallas Texas radio host, penned the book entitled “Snakes in the Pulpit” and says that Bishop Eddie Long was one of it’s main characters.
Armstrong traveled to Atlanta while researching his book after two New Birth Missionary Baptist Church youth pastors contacted him. He said what they told him back in 2006 sounds eerily similar to what’s been alleged in four lawsuits filed against Long in September.
