If you haven’t heard of the Rich Kid$ yet you may just need to get out more often. Not 1 but TWO Rich Kid$ singles have been getting mad airplay in the “A” and they have been coined the next musical movement from Atlanta. Comprised of members: Rashard, Babe Kaelub, Baby Charles, Lil Juney and Skool Boy, The Rich Kids have the Atlanta underground music-scene going nuts. The group is a collection of all-star talent from Atlanta’s own Frederick Douglass, Westlake and Southside High Schools (APS stand up!!) and the two hit singles bubbling in Atlanta are the melodic “Wassup” and the club-banger “My Patna Dem”. Check em both out below:
Check out the newest video from T.I. “Slide Show” which features the vocals of John Legend. We’re still counting down the days til Tip’s return but I lost track. All I know is there’s gonna be a helluva party when he gets out and I wanna be there….
Custom Whipz Auto Spa held a special Meet & Greet last week geared towards connecting artists directly with bloggers and media in Atlanta. Kaspa Da Don (of Hittmenn Dj’s and Zone 4) spear headed the campaign to unite these two forces and recruited me to gather up the troops. Now…this was the first EVER event that I personally had a hand in and I accepted the challenge. Drumma Boy, Pretty Ricky, Young Dose, Poppa Snoop, Big Bank Black, Lo Fat, Mika Means, DeeDee Cocheta (ABC Publicity), Willie Hustle, Tommy Gunz and more all came through. Check out the flix below:
Mo Moet…Mo Moet…and Mo Moet!
ATLien & DrummaBoy…I’ll let him throw the “M” on my site (but only you…Drumma!)
Me & Mika Means…Girls Club 4Life!
Our sponsors, Moet and Mercedes Benz of Buckhead, made sure that all guests were well fed and filled with champagne! Food was provided by Cafe 29 and I’d like to personally thank all of my blogging buddies for showing mad love and coming out to support. I was actually working the event so I had to depend on them for coverage and they did the dayum thang! Check out video footage and more photos below:
Usher Raymond IV was at the Playboy Club in Vegas last night hosting a party for Vegas Magazine Men’s Issue. If you recall, Usher is featured in the magazine in his a photo spread promoting his upcoming project:
Usher is sporting a brand new tatt, which he proudly revealed while on the red carpet of the Vegas Mag event. The streets are buzzing that he may have done it as a message to his future ex-wife, Tameka Foster Glover Raymond.
Young Jeezy issued a warm “Welcome Back” to former Atlanta Falcon quarterback Michael Vick recently during his stop in Virginia for the AMW tour. The two chopped it up and Mike introduced his lil cousin, who’s an aspiring artist. Vick, who’s finally free from federal custody is also in Atlanta today to speak on behalf of the Human Society. He is currently at the New Life Community Center to speak to kids about dogs, dogfighting and how to deal with potentially violent dogs, but according to the Associated Press, media wasn’t allowed in the building:
The former Atlanta Falcons quarterback entered the New Life Community Center through a back entrance Saturday for an event put on by the Humane Society of the United States.
However, several members of the community were barred from entering the building. The society also refused to allow The Associated Press to enter.
Vick is still searching for a home team and has been conditionally reinstated by the league after completing his 23-month federal sentence for running a dogfighting ring. His Atlanta visit is a step to improve his image since his release. We’re all rooting for you Mike!
The Real Housewives of Atlanta (Season Two) is on an poppin and people are still wondering who Kim Zolciak’s Big Papa’s is. Well I tried to tell you a while back but in case you couldn’t read between the lines, Big Poppa is believed to be none other than Georgia real estate investor Lee Najjar. Big Poppa came to his senses and kicked Kim Zolciak to the curb so now she’s single and fancy free while he’s home doing family stuff with the wife and kids. It’s kinda sad though…especially since Kim is stuck with his name tatted on her ring finger.
Recently MTV’s Teen cribs featured Najjar’s expansive palatial estate with his two youngest children, Jamen (15) and Katelin (18), providing the tour of the insanely posh home.“Big Papa”himself and wife Kimberly even made brief appearances throughout the episode.
According to HomesOfTheRich the 16,000 + square feet home is located on W Paces Ferry Road NW in Atlanta, GA and has a massive foyer with grand sweeping staircase (Katelin says she will walk down these steps the day she gets married), a huge ballroom, a gourmet kitchen with adjoining breakfast room, numerous bedrooms suites, a recording studio, an amazing home theater with a wrought iron door, a swimming pool, a tanning bed room, a game room with ping pong table, a gentleman’s club with special filtration for smoke, a beauty and nail salon, a massage room, a moroccan room complete with a hooka pipe, a massive pool House, a basketball court, and an outdoor hibachi grill. The family cars include several Rolls Royce, Mercedes and Range Rover. (source)
