Clifford “T.I.” Harris has finally admitted that he has a drug problem.
Just days prior to turning himself in to serve his 11 month sentence for probation violations stemming from an L.A. drug arrest, Tip sat down with VIBE Magazine’s Erik Parker for a very candid interview.
In an excerpt from the explosive cover story, T.I. reveals that he developed an addiction to pain pills after having oral surgery.
I had a lot of work done to my teeth. Oral surgery, extractions, six, seven, eight root canals. Between January to February. As soon as I got out, I had a lot of stuff done. In the joint, you eat shit that is unhealthy for you. I had fillings that fell out and stuff that had to get dealt with. Of course for the pain they gave me oxycontin and hydrocodone. And, mind you, on October 13, 2007, I had cut off everything―weed, alcohol.
Then I get these pills and I start taking them for the pain at first. And then I’m like, Wait―this shit makes me feel good. Continue Reading…

A lot has happened since Deshawn Snow was booted from the 1st season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
Since that time, DeShawn pursued a masters of divinity degree and her NBA baller husband, Eric Snow, filed for divorce and is rumored to be the father of a brand new baby girl.
Besides the obvious life changes, Deshawn’s single again and back on the prowl! She has reportedly decided to tape her experiences as part of a developing reality show.
Move over Real Housewives of Atlanta and Basketball Wives, DeShawn Snow is back on the scene with her all new reality show. The newly divorced and liberated Snow now has a new attitude with a significant weight loss to go with it, millions in her pocket and the love and support of her two sisters and comical sidekick Mother.
No network has formally announced picking up the project, but an industry insider tell us that Bravo has expressed interest in the show and would like to air it in the third quarter of 2011. What should viewers expect from the girl whom some considered too human?
Expect Snow to tackle serious issues as she takes on being a single Mother of three, a business woman working to expand her Foundation and Snowball Production Company empire, and see DeShawn as you’ve never seen her before as she enters back into the dating scene.

Usher Raymond and Sean “Diddy” Combs were spotted in L.A. (November 17) on the set of their video shoot for “Lookin’ for Love”.
Usher appears to be showing off his new bling to the hip-hop mogul as they stroll down the set of their new music video, with bodyguards in tow.
Ursh and his former mentor teamed up for “Lookin for Love,” which is produced by Usher’s younger brother, James aka JLack and is about two wealthy guys having fun in a club.
Isn’t Black love beautiful!
As far as relationships go, Diddy recently tweeted that he’s getting married on Valentine’s Day 2011, but retracted his statement moments later:
Word on the curb is that he may have actually popped the question to his girlfriend Cassie while they partied in Atlanta last week. Is it possible Diddy finally found the love he’s been lookin’ for? [cue violins]

As he serves his 11 month jail sentence for probation violations, Clifford “T.I.” Harris has written another letter to his fans… or better yet, his haters.
In his first letter from prison, written just days after he turned himself in, Tip addressed the skeptics who turned their backs on him as he faced another trying setback.
[READ: T.I. Wants You To Know… ]
This time, he reflects on his punishment and reveals how sick and tired he is of using that revolving door in the judicial system. Tip also seems to have finally made a conscious decision to change his ways. Not for the fans. Not for his haters but for himself.
This experience is truly a pain I have never felt before and that’s saying a lot for a nigga who’s been down locked up as many times as I have. I see this as a real ass whoopin’. The kind you don’t just go back outside to play afterwards.
You take ya ass to bed and don’t come out of your room until it’s time to go to school. I don’ t know what effect this will have on my life moving forward but I’m certainly sick and mother f*cking tired of going to jail, juve, prison, the pen, correctional facilities or whatever else you want to call it.

I guess there will be no SNOW this winter. Not from Jeezy anyway…
Reports are coming down the pipe that Young Jeezy’s release date for his highly anticipated Thug Motivation: 103 (TM103) has moved from December 14 to Nev-uary 1st… i.e. NEVER! This is the third change since the first due date (September 28th).
Word is… Jeezy’s singles “All White Everything” [official video] and the Plies-assisted “Lose My Mind” have failed to make noise on the radio airwaves, iTunes, or in even in the clubs.
Def Jam hasn’t said much but rumor has it that Jeezy’s response to former correctional officer-turned-Rapper Rick Ross’ hit “BMF” may have been a factor in the executive decision.
[LISTEN: Young Jeezy ~ “Death Before Dishonor” (Rick Ross Diss)]
Young Jeezy, who has a known affiliation with the notorious drug trafficking organization, boasted about his connections on the street remix. Jeezy squeaked past a federal investigation back in 2008, so it would seem that rapping about it wasn’t a very smart thing to do.
Oh well… I guess we have still a few Jeezy tracks on the streets to hold us down in the meantime.
