I know it’s hard times out there, but now you can’t even go grab a burger without some fool tryna gank your stuff! Ex-Atlanta Falcons player, Major Everett decided to hit up the Wendy’s on Boulevard a few days ago and two armed men approached his vehicle while in the dayum drive-through! The robbers forced him out of his vehicle and stole all his cash.
Everett, who played running back for the Falcons briefly in 1987 after several years with the Philadelphia Eagles and Cleveland Browns, told police that a man with a handgun and wearing a ski mask approached the driver’s side of his 2000 Mercedes and said, “drop your money and get out of the car.”
The second suspect went to the passenger side of the Mercedes and pointed an Uzi at Everett, according to the report.
Everett dropped $70 inside the car and got out of the vehicle. The first suspect then got behind the wheel while the second man searched Everett’s pockets, telling him, “that’s not enough money; we need more money.”
The first suspect then drove off in the Mercedes, with the second man running behind the car. The second suspect got into the Mercedes in front of the Wendy’s and the two drove off. (Source)
The good thing is…no one was hurt and this was all caught on tape. The bad thing is….I gotta scratch that Wendy’s off my late night list. Dayum these goons!
Please be sure to contact Crimestoppers Atlanta Tip Line at 404-477-TIPS(8477) if you recognize these fools.
Comedian Micah “Katt” Williams and members of his entourage were arrested yesterday in New York for gun possession. Almost two years to the day of his arrest for the same charges at the LAX airport. The comedian had been a no-show for an appearance of “Late Night with Conan O’Brian” the night before which sparked rumors that he was missing.
The 35-year-old performer was released on $250,000 bail, just minutes before a performance at Carnegie Hall last night.
“You’ll have to forgive me,” he said after taking the stage. “I know I’m moving slower than my normal pace, but I just got out of jail.”
The rush to make the show came after his Conan no-show Wednesday, which forced the TV host to ad-lib for about seven minutes.
Then at around 1:30 a.m. yesterday, cops said they saw a Cadillac belonging to Williams parked in Chelsea without license plates.
When the officers approached, two men started backing away and one said, “I have nothing to do with what’s in that car,” law-enforcement sources said.
Police found three guns in the Cadillac and a loaded weapon in Williams’ Mercedes bus, which was parked behind it, sources said. None of the guns was registered. (Source)
It seems like crazy rumors surface every other day about Katt Williams and now this knee-grow is bringing them all to fruition. I’m soooo disappointed in him right now. How many times you got to get arrested before you figure out that you need to change something??
You can’t ever say that Kanye West doesn’t try new things! In his new video for “Heartless,” Mr. West enters a world of animation. There are quite a few cameos from futuristic superstars, the Jetson’s, who are prominently featured on artwork in Kanye’s cartoon home. I hate to say it folks, but Kanye’s singing has started to grow on me. I know you like it too…don’t front!
Kanye also explained his decision to turn from hip-hop to pop in an interview with a Singapore news outlet. In his usual arrogant swag, Ye explained how his new style of music should be described as “pop-art” and that his goal is to be the greatest performer of this generation. He gives much love to his homie T-Pain in the interview and even shows off his singing skills without the vocoder. When asked about his experiences with the media, Kanye quickly pointed out the power of the blog:
My relationship with the media? O.K…That’s why I love having a blog because it’s like, BAM! I can say exactly what I want, the amount of stuff I want…and then it just goes out to everywhere else, it may end up on CNN.
That’s the greatest thing about having a blog. Before that…you would have to go through the media.
Dayum! Kanye’s just letting all the good secrets out these days. Peep the full interview: Continue Reading…
Chingy was spotted looking mad colorful at Ne-Yo’s birthday bash during BET Hip Hop Awards weekend a few weeks back and celebrity fashion stylist Renaldo Nehemiah was photographed with Chingy while rocking the same colorful ensemble. I’m not quite sure which came first…but whatever the case, this is NOT a good look! This type of sharing is not uncoming for some women, but do dudes actually share clothes??

Ciara covers the December 2008 issue of Right-On magazine with somewhat of a different look. She is really going all out with her “Go Girl” glamour image. Love it! Especially the throwback POW! doorknocker earrings created by Melody Ehsani. The photo was captured by Atlanta celebrity photographer Derek Blanks.
Ciara also took a moment yesterday to share her election night memories of Barack Obama’s historic win:
The 23-year-old spent election night going back and forth from inside an Atlanta rehearsal studio to the hallway to check the results. “Finally, when rehearsals were over I just sat in the lobby area where the TVs are and watched the speeches. Just took it all in.
“I’ve just been feeling this sense of pride, like for days now,” she said. “Not just because of the history of the first black president — but because I just believe he will be a great president. Black people didn’t just vote for him, all ethnicities did. And I think that’s because Barack Obama sees us all as one. All Americans.
“I didn’t cry last night when I was watching his speech, but when I was driving here to rehearsal today, they were playing it on the radio with [contemporary gospel singer] Marvin Sapp’s ‘Never Would Have Made It’ underneath, and I just started boo-hooing.” (source)
D-Roc & Kaine also known as The Ying Yang Twins are best remembered for classic Atlanta booty club hits like, “Whistle While You Twerk” which was followed up by ”Whats Happnin!”, “Naggin’” and the popular Lil Jon collaboration “Salt Shaker”. With a string of hits under their belt, the duo are back on the scene with a new song called entitled, “Wild Out”, which will be featured on double cd release tentatively titled The Official Work to be released February 2009. They sent me this because they want to know what the “A” thinks about their new single.
