Antwan “Big Boi” Patton has announced his departure from Jive records and has signed a one album deal with Def Jam for the release of Sir Lucious Leftfoot: Son of Chico Dusty.
In an excited tweet sent Friday, Big exclaimed that the deal is done and he’s finally free to release his music:
I’m heading over to Stankonia one day this week to get the low down, but apparently Def Jam CEO L. A. Reid, who first signed Outkast to the label over 15 years ago reached out to Big Boi to release the solo project under Def Jam.
Sir Lucious Leftfoot: Son of Chico Dusty is currently scheduled for a May 2010 release. Congratulations Twannnn!! It’s about dayum time.

TIger Woods spoke publicly for the first time since his apologetic press conference in two interviews conducted Sunday afternoon (3/21) at Isleworth, the golf club near his Windermere, Fla. home.
Woods spoke with ESPN with no restrictions on questions. The only stipulation was that the interview had a five-minute time limitation.
It was the first time Woods has been questioned by reporters since he was involved in that one-car crash outside his Florida home in the early-morning hours of Nov. 27 that forever changed his life.
I was living a life of a lie, I really was. And I was doing a lot of things … that hurt a lot of people. And stripping away denial and rationalization you start coming to the truth of who you really are and that can be very ugly. But then again, when you face it and you start conquering it and you start living up to it, the strength that I feel now … I’ve never felt that type of strength.
Tiger addressed several tough questions from ESPN’s Tom Rinaldi and the one I found most interesting was “Why did you get married”. Check out the full 5 minute interview below: Continue Reading…
112 is reportedly back in the studio grinding it out for a 2010 reunion album, so it’s only fitting that I do a flashback to their days at Puffy…P.Diddy…Diddy’s Bad Boy label.
Their first single, “Only You” featured The Notorious B.I.G. and Ma$e and was a Top 20 in both the Pop and R&B charts. 112’s self-titled debut album hit platinum sales and is still in rotation on the “A”pod today. That 1st Biggie line always gets me:
Je-sus the notorious just/Please us with your lyrical thesis
Ahhh….memories! Video below: Continue Reading…
Chris Brown, who recently rejoined TWITTER after quitting in disgrace a few months ago, has been begging for followers by promising to go LIVE on Ustream when he hits certain benchmarks.
As promised, Chris went LIVE once he hit 100,000 followers and was joined in the studio by producer Polow Da Don.
It would seem that this would be a win win situation for them both, but Polow eff’d it all up when he made an offhand comment to Chris’ 50,000+ viewers which offended both women and gays.
I received not one but TWO long “A”zz emails describing Chris’s utter disrespect for his fans after he didn’t stand up or address Polow’s comment, which begins at the 12:50 mark: Continue Reading…
By now I’m sure you all are aware that all 5 of the Atlanta housewives have been confirmed to return for the 3rd season after the ladies appeared together publicly during Bravo’s 2010 Upfront party last week for the announcement.
Kim Zolciak, who’s rumored to have been exploring her lesbian side with a new boo, sat down with a Jacksonville, FL news station yesterday to say that she and Big Poppa, her married “on again/off again” boyfriend, are now ON again after their brief separation.
During the interview, Kim showed off the “engagement” ring her married boo gave her and stated that we may even be seeing him on air during the 3rd season. Continue Reading…
In a recent one on one with Vibe Magazine, Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas was asked if she felt that Usher’s Capri bearing performance during the 2010 NBA All-Star Game was an indication that he’d lost his sex appeal.
As one who’s really familiar with Usher and his sexiness, Chilli broke it down and stood up for her ex-boo: Continue Reading…
