SouljaBoy Tellem shot the video for his highly addictive “Gucci Bandana” yesterday at Coan Park in East Atlanta. The park was filled to capacity with tons of fans, as well as a few video vixen hopefuls. It was certainly a celebration of all things ‘Gucci’ as everyone came through sporting their fresh new gear regardless of it’s authenticity! <~ Gotta love the “A”!
SouljaBoy and Gucci Mane cruised around in a Red Lamborghini while barbeque was grilled for the crowd. It was a beautiful day and an Atlanta celebration as Shawty Lo, Mr. Collipark, DJ Drama, Slim (of 112), Jamal Woolard (aka The Fake Biggie) from Notorious, Rich Boi, Zone 4 DJ Bishop of Zone 4’s Hittmenn DJs and more all came out to show support. Even Lil Jon swung through for a suprise cameo at the end of the shoot!
Looks like Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins wasted no time getting back to work after being given the boot by Trump! She and fellow bandmate Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas performed last weekend in Japan during the SpringGrove09 concert. These two are still great performers and Lisa’s spirit was definitely in the room!
Check out the video of their tribute to Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes below:
I’d like to thank the people of Big Boi’s camp for dropping me this behind the scenes video a gazillion months after the actual GQ shoot. 😕 I mean…I’m eternally grateful cause I ♥ him! Especially since I got to sneak a peak inside my boo’s closet! Boi Stop! Easter’s fast approaching and I already know Twan has a fresh pair of pastel gaters on deck…. Love it!
Shouts out to my twitter buddy KyleLucas of the band Vonnegutt who just got signed to Big Boi’s Purple Ribbon label. Watch out for them on a future “A” Pod…
T.I.’s Road to Redemption: The Reckoning aired last night and Tip sat down with MTV’s Sway for one final interview before he starts his sentence in May. Tip tells Sway that he’s over the questions about his weapons charges and arrest stating: “This is the last time…After this I’m done! Don’t ask me no more questions bout this OK? Finito!” OK…Tip! I think we get it. You don’t want to be asked anymore questions about your legal issues, right? Right.
Meanwhile, while Tip’s keeping quiet, reportedly his snitchin “A”zz bodyguard, 34 year old Corey Williams is NOT. Williams was intrumental in developing the weapons case in that he had monitored conversations with T.I. and wore a wire on the rapper during a face-to-face meeting. He also agreed to testify against his former employer as a “confidential witness” after the bust went down. After all that, Williams did not get off easily. He still received the exact same penalty as T.I. (366 days) even though their criminal records are on opposite ends of the spectrum.
