According to TMZ, Swizzy is accused of being a shady business man. The super producer is being sued by a man who claims he wrote Cassidy’s song “My Drink & My Two Step.”
The suit claims Swizz broke him off a lil bit (a very lil bit), while he and Cassidy pocketed the lion’s share of the dough from the hit song.
The songwriter in question — named Antwann Frost — filed the lawsuit two days ago … claiming Swizz hit him up in 2007 to help put together a hit single for rapper Cassidy’s then incomplete album.
According to the docs — obtained by TMZ — Swizz assembled the “drum patterns” and Frost created “all of the other original musical components that shaped and defined” the track that would become a chart-topping hit … spawning remixes by Kanye West, Ne-Yo, and Chingy.
The song was released soon after — at which point, Frost claims, Swizz lowballed him with a $5,000 cash offer and 5% ownership of the song … while Swizz and Cassidy got the bulk share.
Frost rejected the offer … and now dude’s suing for $1,500,000 — claiming he deserves equal partnership in the song with Swizz and Cass. No word yet from Camp Swizz.
My boo Antwan “Big Boi” Patton joined Keri Hilson in Chicago yesterday (October 21) for the launch of the “Get Schooled” campaign.
Keri and Big stressed the importance of education to students at Chicago’s Collins Academy High School during Thursday’s Get Schooled National Challenge and Tour.
[Sidebar: Somebody needs to tell Keri to back up off my man! *Whooo-sah!*]
Big Boi told the crowd how he planned on pursuing his education before OutKast blew up.
“Before I started doing music, I was actually planning on going to school to study child psychology, but when I was in eleventh grade we went platinum. I still finished and graduated with honors.
Miss Keri, adorned with her now signature “No Boys Allowed” necklace, hit the stage to perform “Knock You Down” and offered some key advice to the youth.
“I think the key to making it through high school and life in general is knowing what’s important, attacking that, and executing everything,” said Keri, a former co-captain of her high school basketball team.

Real Housewives of Atlanta’s NeNe Leakes is finally fessing up about all of her nip/tucks after denying it for months.
As if we all hadn’t already noticed the elephant in the room, 42 year old Leakes addresses her nose/boob jobs in a recent article with People Magazine.
NeNe 2.0 parties at TAU in NYC (Oct. 16th)
“I’m very comfortable and confident in myself. I just wanted a tune up,” Leakes, 42, says, admitting she got a nose job, smaller breast implants and a lift, and liposuction around her waist for contouring in April.
“I admit it, I’m vain.” says NeNe.
But Leakes says she didn’t want a full transformation. “I still wanted to look like NeNe, the black woman that I am,” she says, “but a better version.” (source)
NeNe says she’s not afraid to show off her major changes. She went from a size 10 to a size 8 after dropping 15 pounds with lipo and also decreased her boobage from a double D to single digits through breast augmentation.
