Bobby Valentino, the “Lil Shawty from Atlanta” (his words not mine ), finally dropped the video for “Beep”. The song features Yung Joc and the video is packed with ATL cameos like Rocko, DJ Drama, Sean Garrett & Lloyd. I think I even saw Shay “Buckeey” Johnson from Flavor of Love sitting on the couch.
I can’t call it you guys. I thought the battle over Bankhead was over, but it appears it was just simmering. “Don’t I” a new song by some dude I’ve never heard of (Stuntman) featuring Shawty Lo is apparently a T.I. diss track aimed at Yung L.A.’s “Ain’t I“. The first time I heard “Ain’t I” I thought it sounded way too much like Shawty Lo to be a coincidence but who am I? All I know is…this ish could go on forever! If you desire to add this to your Bankhead beats collection, the download link is under the cut (don’t ever say I don’t give you anything!): Continue Reading…
The F.B.I. has joined the Chicago police in an intensive search for the boy, who also goes by the nicknames “Juice Box” and “Dr. King.”
Earlier on Sunday, less than 24 hours after her sister Julia publicly pleaded for the boy’s safe return, Hudson took to her MySpace blog to thank her fans for their support and ask that they help in the search. The post includes photos of the boy.
“Thank you all for your prayers and your calls,” the posting, signed by the Hudson family, reads. “Please keep praying for our family and that we get Julian King back home safely. If anyone has any information about his whereabouts please contact the authorities immediately. Here is a picture of Julian and what he was last seen wearing. Once again thank you all for being there for us through this tough time.”
In a statement released Sunday evening announcing the reward, the family asked that all inquiries be directed to the Chicago Police Department, Area 1 Detective Division at (312) 747-8380. “Jennifer and her family appreciate the enormous amount of love, support and prayers they have received while she and her family try to cope with this tragedy and continue the search for Julian,” the statement reads.
On Saturday, Democratic presidential nominee and fellow Chicagoan Barack Obama reacted to Hudson’s tragic news over the weekend, according to UsMagazine.com. Obama described the deaths as “heartbreaking” and said he was “trying to get a phone number to call her at this tragic time. She is somebody who has campaigned for me, she also lives in my community. So, we’re really going to have to … help her and pray for her and her family during this difficult time.”
Police have not yet charged anyone in the murders, but Hudson’s brother-in-law, William Balfour, who had lived at the residence in the past, is being held by Chicago police as a “person of interest” in the case. According to the Chicago Tribune,Balfour, 27, who recently separated from King’s mother, was found at his pregnant girlfriend’s house on the South Side of Chicago several hours after the bodies were discovered, but Julian King was not with him.
Balfour, on parole after serving seven years in prison for attempted murder and vehicular hijacking, was transferred to the Illinois Department of Corrections on a violation of parole “independent of this investigation,” a spokesperson for the department told the Tribune. The spokesperson said Balfour violated his parole “due to the allegations made against him, that he is a person of interest in the homicides as well as the kidnapping.” (Source)
My sincere condolences go out to the Hudson family.

Big Boi has left the “A” for the sunny skies of California. Don’t worry though…he’ll be back. SOHH’s Gyant did a post that reminded me about Big Boi’s venture to LA to shoot a few scenes for Law & Order. I’m sooo sorry you guys. I was so excited about the new Outkast project that it completely slipped my mind. Big Boi is no stranger to acting, appearing in at least 3 films (ATL, Idlewild, Who’s Your Caddy). He did his thang in ATL! – “You done hit me in the face with some got-dayum money…!”
Mr. Patton joins fellow ATLien, Ludacris on the list of “A” list hip-hop heads to guest star on the popular legal show. This is one show I’m saving on my TiVo…until Oprah deletes it. Congrats Twan!
Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson is following in P. Diddy’s steps with a new reality show on MTV. The show, entitled “The Money & The Power” which will be a kind of ghetto Apprentice. Fiddy will take on 14 contestants who will compete in an attempt to win a $100,000 investment from the rapper/entrepreneur. I dunno bout this one…but I’ll probably watch just to see if Fiddy’s lips will move. The show premieres November 6th at 10pm on MTV.
