A lot has happened in the months since Wiz and I chatted in that conference room.
In addition to his being attached by the tongue to Amber Rose, Wiz has been gettin’ busy with his Rolling Papers Tour, ‘which rolled up’ to the ATL yesterday (July 12, 2011).
The event was held at the historic Masquerade venue, which is only so big on the inside, but Wiz and Big Sean performed in an outside setting, where fans were treated to a rock star concert in the sunshine.
A few of Atlanta’s top DJ’s came through in support of the tour…

Prior to her performance, Keri hinted that she was a bit nervous about hitting the ring, stating:
Being that Keri forgot the lyrics once when attempting to open another sporting event in front of the home crowd, Keri’s jitters were understandable.

Don’t get it twisted…I would never bash my president! President Barack Obama has been immortalized as a wax figure to be featured in Paris’ Musee Grevin wax museum. The figure was unveiled in front of the Eiffel Tower on Monday and was escorted by two real body guards. Tourists quickly gathered around to catch a glimpse of the U.S. President, totally unaware that it was a wax figure!
The Fake President + Two Live Bodyguards
“It looks really cool,” said American tourist Emily Artes. “Everyone was joking that he was actually here and that we were gonna take pictures with him.” The hot summer sun at the Eiffel Tower also threatened to melt the fake president’s face, prompting helpers to shade him with an umbrella.
The resemblance was so uncanny — down to the gray hair Obama is said to have acquired since the beginning of his presidential campaign.
After visiting France’s most famous monument, the statue traveled to Paris’ Musee Grevin wax museum, where it will stand alongside the likenesses of Nicolas Sarkozy, Angela Merkel and Vladimir Putin.
The sculptor says it wasn’t easy to create a model of a man that he had never met, relying solely on press releases and photos. That’s right… the creator of this masterpiece, Sculptor Eric Saint Chaffray had never even seen Obama in person! Saint Chaffray has been creating wax statues for the museum for the past 20 years, and has worked on several American presidents in the past.
Dressed in a dark suit, the wax statue of Obama looked very serious. “We’re presenting Barack Obama at the Musee Grevin as part of a gathering of heads of state, which is why he has kind of an official attitude, a little bit stiff,” Saint Chaffray said. (Source)

After documents surfaced recently that Cedric “Alfamega” Zellars had once been a paid informant, T.I. wasted no time in hitting the airwaves of Atlanta radio station 107.9 to release the following statement…“You’re FIRED!” Just kidding. Here’s what he really had to say:
I am stunned and totally surprised by the news about Alfa “Ced” Zellers. Even though all of our artists and employees are asked by us to be honest and open about their past history, at no time did Alfa disclose to me or Grand Hustle what has now appeared in the media. He essentially deceived us by failing to fully disclose the truth about his past, and there is no place in our organization for dishonest and misleading behavior.
As I’ve always said, you must take responsibility for your own actions. We at Grand Hustle can not support or condone blaming others for our own mistakes. I hope and pray that God blesses Cedric’s plans, but i don’t foresee me or my company playing a role in his personal or professional business.
Alfa is said to be incapacitated at an Atlanta area hospital and is severely injured from unknown reasons. I have so many questions right now. Who leaked those old “A”zz documents? Why now? Why is Alfa in the hospital? What does any of this have to do with him making music? We may never know the full story but it’s interesting nonetheless…
