I’m sorry to report that Tip won’t be releasing his “Swing Ya Rag” due to protests of copyright infringement from Gucci and Louis Vuitton.
“We spoke to them. The video, it’s done. But I guess it’s one of those corporate things where they don’t wanna be associated or affiliated with a certain type of brand. A T.I. video ain’t the best look in their eyes right now. No harsh feelings.”
“At the end of the day, it’s gonna be a time when somebody is gonna have to sit at my table, and we gonna have the same type of conversations. It might be something as simple as just a party or endorsement. One thing is, the world goes around and comes back. I can take it when it’s my turn.” (Source)
Diddy recently announced his “I Am King” contest and is asking all you “KINGS” out there to submit a 90 second video describing your kingly attributes. He even gives an example of what you might say during those 90 seconds.
“I am a King cause I’m a child of God and my mother is a Queen. That’s the way I was raised to be a King. I am a very responsible person. I’m a leader. I’m confident…and I’m very respectful of others.”
Diddy’s gonna personally choose the 3 best kings from the video submissions and will fly them out to New York to be treated like a king. Uh-huh. Ummmm. Okay… Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about Kings and sh*t but I smell another reality show coming on.
I can’t…I can’t…I can’t!!! Not today! This ish right hurr has got to be the best flashback I’ve seen in a minute. Check out this classic Punk’d episode featuring a 16 year old Shad Moss. From the look on Bow Wow’s (or was it Lil Bow-Wow then?) face when he was working with that big “A”zzz tiger to his neck rolling confrontation with the jewelry lady who accuses him of stealing diamonds… Lil Ike Bow-Weezy was in rare form! Pure comedy…
Young Jeezy hit up Narvie J. Harris Elementary School in Atlanta to present a bit of Christmas Cheer to the foster care program out there in Dekalb County. The Harris school was named for a woman who was an outstanding African-American educator in DeKalb County for many years and is a theme school which focuses on the arts. Jeezy will be hitting up several other schools and programs around the “A” from now until Christmas to offer donations and spread his wealth.
