Check out a new track from Lil Jon entitled “Give It All You Got” featuring Kree. The song is from Lil Jon’s upcoming album slated for a November 24th release. The song is a bit on the pop side and I’m sure it’s a big hit in Jon’s new home of Miami but I ain’t feelin it.

Meet 43-year-old cab driver, David Perez. Perez was picked up yesterday in Clayton County, Georgia and charged with child molestation after a 10 year old passenger in his cab accused him of touching her inappropriately:
The mother said what hurts the most is that she knew Perez well.“I would say, ‘Can you send cab #40?’” said the mom. “He would tell me about his granddaughter and his son having a baby.”
The mother said one day her daughter missed the school bus so she called for a cab. She said Perez picked up her daughter. Before they left the complex, the girl said Perez told her to get in the front seat. The girl told police Perez then continually tried to touch her inappropriately.
“(He) basically tried to feel all on her body,” said the girl’s mom.Police said the 10-year-old girl eventually jumped out of the moving taxi, went to school, and told counselors. The school counselors called the police. (Source)
A Clayton County judge probable cause to move forward with child molestation and Perez also faces sexual battery and enticing a child charges.

When Bobby and Whitney hit Atlanta back in the 90’s it was even more evident that he was the one to watch. Bombarded by legal issues concerning child support cases, D.U.I.’s, and whatever else…Bobby never left the spotlight even when he wasn’t performing. I dunno what it was about him, but I was always silently rooting for his return. While the media bashed him for ruining Whitney, I always knew in my heart that Whitney shared responsibility in that downfall.
When Whitney appeared on Oprah she seemed to blame Bobby for all her setbacks. It got me to thinking about all the times I could have blamed my ex *cough* ex(es) for the things that have gone wrong in my life. It wouldn’t have mattered. I still had to take responsibility for my own actions.

Bobby, during his episode of VH1’s Behind The Music, didn’t blame Whitney at all for his failures. In fact, he seemed quite content in his current situation. From being flat broke after his separation Continue Reading…
