Word on the curb is that Grand Hustle Records, the label formed by Clifford “T.I.” Harris and his partner Jason Geter, is in financial trouble and may be in the process of closing it’s doors.
A few months ago, staff at Grand Hustle offices were spotted packing up and the location closed it’s doors.
Rumor quickly spread that money was tight due to Tip’s recent legal troubles and there were whispers that time was running out on the embattled rappers label.
Unfortunately, there was a grain of truth to a few of the rumors.
For example, the former Grand Hustle offices are now definitely empty and many of the people who used to work there are no longer employed…
But bump whatcha heard, Jason Geter (Grand Hustle’s co-CEO) says it ain’t over til it’s over! Continue Reading…
Fantasia Barrino hit up Beyonce’s wig crypt recently, rocking a new look for her performance at New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival on April 30, 2011.
Tasia’s new “Black & Yella” doo, as well as her always energetic stage presence, made her the talk of NOLA this weekend as she entertained the crowd:
“We didn’t come here just to be looking, we came to party.” yells Tasia to the excited crowd.
“So ladies, if your shoes” hurt, take ‘em off. Don’t worry” worry about your hair. You can get your hair done tomorrow.”
Fantasia took it on home Saturday evening as she shed a few tears with the crowd and even had them all singing along to the the “Baby Mama” theme song.

Keri Hilson looked absolutely stunning in an Ivory dress as she attended the 5th annual DKMS Gala at Cipriani Wall Street last night (April 28, 2011) in New York.
Miss Keri Baby’s blond bob has gotten a bit shorter these days and she’s definitely headed into MJB territory. Keri, who has often been mistakenly identified as Mary J. Blige by the “white” media, looks strikingly like the “No Mo Drama” singer with her shorter doo…
Who better for Keri to steal swag than the Queen of hip-hop soul? I guess it’s always good to emulate those you aspire to be… *shrug*
Mary J, on the other hand, has decided to go with a longer doo these days.

This just in… Waka Flocka Flame has been added to Soulja Boy’s highly discussed remake of the classic hip-hop film JUICE!
[READ: Is Soulja Boy the New Tupac? ]
SB revealed recently that Waka was added to his 2011 “Atlanta” remake of JUICE, stating:
We’ve been filming here in Atlanta. Waka Flocka’s gonna be in the movie. It’s gonna be crazy. He called, he reached out. We met up with the director. Now I’m almost to the stages where I just gotta finish these last three shoots and then I’ll be cool.
I think it was a good idea to bring him on board because the director was trying to get me to put some rappers in it, and he was naming a lot of different rappers.
I just felt like if I was gonna put anybody in the movie, it should make sense and be somebody that I really got a relationship with in the rap game, for real.
[Waka’s] gonna be a member of my crew and we’re gonna be like this upcoming group in Atlanta. It’s gonna be four of us and we’re gonna be going against this rival crew. (Source)
By the way… what’s red and shiny and has Soulja Boy all over it? Naw… it’s not Diamond’s red lips, it’s his brand new car.

Keyshia Cole’s biological mom (not to be confused with the Mom who raised her in Cali) has been locked up… again!
Rumor has it that Frankie Lons was locked up earlier this month for probation violation after failing a random drug test, although her publicist would tell you differently.
Lons, known for her BET spin off reality show Frankie & Neffe PLUS her stint on Dr. Drew’s Celebrity Rehab, was locked up in an Atlanta suburb yestereday and is back in the clink for probation violation after she was found in possession of drug paraphernalia. *sigh*
