The Goodie Mob is back together again and all is right with the world!! Yesterday all four members climbed aboard a “Special” MARTA bus assigned to tour nothing but the southside. *sigh* The memories… Besides the fact the I was having my own personal flashbacks about Mays High circa 1997 1987 *cough* oops I mean…hell y’all already know I been around these parts for quite some time. I ain’t shame! But besides all that, T-Mo, Khujo, Gipp & Cee-Lo each had their own personal stories to tell about life growing up on the southside of Atlanta.
The Goodie Mob’s “Special” MARTA bus
DJ Drama was designated as MARTA bus M.C and announced each stop in his signature fashion. Tour stops included The Rec at West Manor Park, Mays High School and of course the infamous “Dungeon” where the ATLien’s spit rhymes and created those soulful beats that our city is so famous for.
Goodie Mob take a moment to reflect in front of the “Dungeon” ~ Rico Wade’s now vacant home.
The final stop woulda/shoulda been Greenbriar Mall but I think we dwelled a lil too long in front of Rico Wade’s former diggs. The house which holds many memories of Dungeon Family antics now sits vacant and lonely. The multi-million dollar studio located in the basement of the property (hence the “Dungeon” tag) is now boarded and whatever remains inside has been secured by a metal pulldown fence: Continue Reading…

Singer Monica took over Cali yesterday, as her presence was requested by Microsoft founder Bill Gates. Monica performed in celebration of the launch of the “Get Schooled” program, a nation-wide initiative, co-developed by Viacom and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, which aims to engage students, families and community members in efforts to improve America’s public education system and encourage more young people to complete their education.
The launch consisted of a block party and concert included more than 400 Los Angeles-area public school students, parents, teachers and school administrators as well as various special guests and celebrities, including Morgan Freeman, Seal & Heidi Klum, Tachina Arnold, Kevin Liles, BET’s Debra Lee and more. Check out a few flix:

Is Antonia “Toya” Carter a backstabber? She seems like a really laid back cool chick, but if you ask Joy Bounds (aka Lyfe Jennings’ baby mama) you may get a earful! Joy was/is part of the baby mama clique in Atlanta, as she’s been hanging out with Tiny for years. If you recall, Kandi Burruss, Joy, Christine White (Luda’s baby moms), Tiny, Toya and possibly Monica were all in discussions about developing their own reality show but Kandi revealed in an Essence article that the idea was scrapped because of an “uneasy disagreement” with the producer.
Now it appears that Joy is mad salty cause everyone’s got a show but her. According to MrsGrapevine, Toya may have manipulated the situation to get all of the other women kicked off the show. She’s even been accused of sleeping with a friend of the producer! Is Toya’s on air sweet image merely a front for the cameras? Joy (and her friends) seem to think so. Check out what they feel is proof of Toya’s backstabbing ways: Continue Reading…

Two daughters, Two Mom’s, One Sweet 16 Party. Shawty Lo held a huge birthday bash for his two 16 year old daughters. They were joined in the celebration by Lo’s 7 other kids. Yes….boys and girls. Carlos has been quite busy over the years! He has a total of 10 kids ranging in ages 7 to 17 and two of the girls turned 16 around the same time. This will be Lil Wayne in 16 more years…
Shawty Lo and the fam…
How cute! Each daughter had her own cake.

Chris Brown was joined on the set of an upcoming video shoot with a few “A” town favorites, Monica, Keri Hilson and super producer Polow Da Don. Some say that this was a Keri Hilson shoot, but my sources tell me that this was the shoot for the hot new track I shot y’all last week (Ester Dean’s “Drop It Low” ft. Chris Brown). I dunno who’s right or who’s wrong, but I heard they’re keeping us guessing cause Polow doesn’t want Ester’s image out there yet. Whatever the reasons behind his decision, he’s dead “A”zz serious about it. Dontcha think that’s a bit strange? Even I can’t find a pic of that heffa no dayum where… Wassup with that Polow?
Chris, Polow, Melody Thornton, Omarion
Keri’s looking great as usual. She’s scheduled to be at the grand opening of Carol’s Daughter in Lenox Square Mall Sunday August 23rd at 12 pm. Y’all need to check that out.
