T.I. covers the August 2008 issue of XXL Magazine. Inside the issue, T.I. addresses his federal gun charges and how his life has changed in the aftermath. He also explains why he chose to seek weapons and also why he doesn’t blame anyone for the decisions he made that got him in that predicament. In addition to the obvious questions about the gun charges & snitching, T.I. also told XXL that he feels that the beef between he and fellow Atlanta rapper Shawty Lo is all just a misunderstanding.

“I look. I check ‘em out. I separate my feelings. I can’t take it personal. I look at it like that’s how they do everybody…”
I may be really late on this news…but who cares? It’s still news to me dammit! How bout…Solange’s Ex Husband/Baby Daddy Daniel Smith has officially broken his silence and is now speaking up on his failed relationship with Beyonce’s baby sis. The timing is questionable however, since he is now a wannabe rapper known as “Yung Sosa.” He’s a cocky one too…calling himself the “Nas of the South” but hey…you gotta have confidence, right? Don’t underestimate him yet though! Yung Sosa just might have a chance in the rap game…especially if “Jay-Z is like a brother” as he claims! His CD, “Trillmatic” is scheduled for release December 2008. Check out the unofficial official video for his new single (dedicated to Solange) after the jump…
Not only is Ne-yo a talented singer and songwriter, now he’s a hot rapper! He’s the next up on the “A Milli” kick and he’s flowing freestyle over the hot track. Oh…and he let’s all y’all haters know that he makes more dough writing lyrics than you ever will. This one is a must have!
It took over 2 years, but they finally got em! Two brothers have been arrested and charged with the 2006 murder of T.I.’s close friend. Hosea Thomas, 34, (Left), and Padron Thomas, 40, (Right), have been charged with murder and felonious assault for the death of T.I.’s assistant and childhood friend, Philant Johnson, 26, and the wounding of three others in the entourage.
The Thomas brothers were patrons at the rapper’s after-hours party at Club Ritz in Cincinnati, Ohio and were disgruntled after being denied access to the Club’s VIP area. At some point
Eminem is obviously an LL Cool J fan. Slim Shady himself came out of his self-imposed hiding to call up Tony Touch’s Toca Tuesday show on Sirus Satellite Radio and prank call Cool J. Shady, pretending to be “Jason from Miami” shocks Cool J with his precision when rapped lyrics from LL’s Eat Em Up, My Rhyme Ain’t Done and Go Cut Creator Go. Everyone in the studo was like Dayum…Jason’s hott! It’s soon revealed that LL’s biggest fan, “Jason from Miami” is none other than Marshall Mathers. Eminem proceeds to kiss LL’s ass asking for a collab and announces that he’s been in the studio working on his first set in 4 years. I know y’all miss Eminems crazy ass but he’s been working on some thangs personally and should come back swingin real soon.
