Lil Scrappy went on record recently to let everyone know the real deal about the stabbing incident that occurred in Dekalb County Georgia back in July. Scrappy says “don’t get it twisted” he was protecting his sister and feels that any brother would have done the same. If you recall, the sister’s boyfriend ended up stabbing Scrappy in the arm and chest area and Scrappy was arrested.
K-Ci and Jo-Jo were spotted in the “A” this weekend. The pair performed an entire impromptu show to the amusement of all who were around. Cameras weren’t allowed at the venue but of course there’s always that one person who sneaks in a camcorder.
Fonzworth Bentley aka Derek Watkins is one ATLien who’s making waves in the industry. Bentley has been very busy these days. Diddy’s former personal assistant recently completed a stint as host on VH1′s G’s to Gents and also has an underground music career. His first song off of the unreleased C.O.L.O.U.R.S. album featured Kanye West and Andre 3000 and this next release is an ode to Atlanta called “A-Town Streets.” I didn’t hesitate to listen to this track since I already knew it would have a ton of “A-Town” flavor. I wasn’t disappointed.
I’m a MJB Fan for life and Chevrolet got down on this new Mary J. Blige commerical! In the spot, Mary picks up all prior versions of herself in the new Chevy Traverse. My favorite “Mary” is the What’s the 411 chick…with the new Mary running a close second. That’s right Mary! Leave that baggage behind girl…
T.I. and Tiny were the life of the party as they celebrated Tip’s 28th birthday with “Untouchables – Part II” Saturday night. The private event was held last night at the Biltmore Hotel, an Atlanta historic landmark and was sponsored by Patron, Atlantic Records, and T.I.’s new clothing line (AKOO).
The entire Grand Hustle family was in the building! Shouts out to Nicole Garner of The Garner Circle PR for the invite and media access and a big thanks to Young Dro for not shooting the Valet…
Have you been sitting in long gas lines this weekend only to get to the pump and discover that the station was out of fuel? Are you following the current presidential campaign with a microscope? Well you still need to keep your wits about you, so I suggest you take a moment to breathe and listen to this hot new track from Rock City (brothers Timothy & Theron Thomas) called“Ride For Obama.” You may notice a familiar beat to the song, but unlike the other “Paper Planes” remixes, this song has a message.
With our nation in economic turmoil and the government on the brink of change, the songwriting duo has listened to the struggle from the streets and has made this track for everyone who feels hopeless in these dire times. A change is needed and Rock City is putting their mic in the air for that change.
