Two of Atlanta’s finest, Clifford “T.I.” Harris and Keri “Miss Keri Baby” Hilson, combine forces in “Got Your Back.” In the song, featured HERE previously on the “A” pod, Tip toasts his fiancée Tiny and salutes all the down “A”zz chicks who stick by their man through thick and thin.
Art imitates life in the new video for the song, as an actor plays an imprisoned man sustained by the love of a loyal lady back home. Of course this subject is near and dear to the heart of T.I., who spent much of 2009 behind bars on a weapons conviction. Tip honors his own real-life longtime love, former Xscape singer Tameka “Tiny” Cottle, in the clip as she makes a sweet cameo where she lovingly supports her boo.

F.O.C.U.S. Foundation and Zone 4, Inc. hosted their 3rd Annual Cancers For A Cause: Where Music Meets Fashion For A Cure last night and spotted in the crowd of onlookers were three of Atlanta’s hottest fashion “divas” and the men who have single-handedly created a “Men in Pumps” phenomenon.
Celebrity hairstylist Derek J and Lawrence made their mark on The Real Housewives of Atlanta as pump rockin male side-kicks, while make-up artist to the stars Christian Balenciaga, who stands well over 6feet tall needs no platforms to rise above the crowd, opting to rock a blonde wig reminiscent of one of Kim Zolciak’s knock-offs.

Antwan “Big Boi” Patton along with Rick Ross & Lil Jon did a threesome of sorts with Chelsea Handler last night on late night television. The trio sat on The Chelsea Lately Show’s first ever “Rapper’s Round Table” and gave the comedian all the Black man she could handle.
As expected, the segments were filled with hilarious commentary and sexual innuendo and Chelsea took every opportunity to question the men on topics ranging from “A”zz implants to Keyshia Cole’s Momma Frankie’s upcoming role on Celebrity rehab:

Rick Ross aka Ricky Rozay aka Teflon Don aka William Leonard Roberts II celebrated the release of his new album in Miami, Florida with his labelmate, Trina by his side.
You may have heard by now that Rick Ross isn’t having any luck choosing a new nickname after the “Real Rick Ross” threatened legal action. In adopting the “Teflon Don” moniker, Ross has started yet another name battle with the Gotti family, who aren’t pleased at all.
“He should have asked for permission,” Gotti’s grandson Carmine Agnello told the New York Daily News. “A stand-up, respectable guy would come and ask, ‘If I could use the nickname.’ “
“I think he’s a great artist, but you can’t just start calling yourself that to sell records,” Agnello said. “He wants to go for that whole image, but hey, be yourself.” Agnello added, “My grandfather paid his dues for that nickname. That was my grandfather’s life.”
Rick doesn’t appear to be too worried about all the name game drama. He’s taking every day in stride and celebrating his success with a party in just about every city. His Miami party was full of skrippers and bottle poppin.

[Sidebar: Is it me or is Henry County the HOTSPOT for rapper lock ups? SouljaBoy, Andre’3000, Gucci Mane, producer Shawty Redd, and even NaS all have Henry County connections]
My boo Antwan “Big Boi” Patton and Goodie Mob members Cee-Lo and Big Gipp were all in attendance at Khujo’s hearing, and Big Boi even testified on his behalf. Continue Reading…
