Way back in the day when Young Jeezy was hot and Rick Ross was not, the two co-existed in the rap world in harmony and even appeared on a song or two or three.
As Rozay’s flame began to burn bright and Jeezy’s flickered into a barely there spark, the “trap boy” in Jeezy began to feel “some kinda way” about the former corrections officer’s use of “BMF” in a song title (Blowing Money Fast).
It’s no secret around these here parts that Young Jeezy was somewhat kinda affiliated with the notorious drug gang “BMF” (Black Mafia Family), hell his name was brought up several times during their drug trial.
Long story short, Jeezy felt that Rick’s use of the acronym was somehow disrespectful being as though Ross had never actually been a part of their crew. So what did Jay “Jeezy” Jenkins do about it? He makes a diss track over the same bumpin beat called “Death Before Dishonor”.
“How you blowing money fast? You don’t know the crew. Oh you part of the fam? Shit i never knew!”
Clifford and Sean have apparently kissed and made up after that lil war of words last weekend.

T.I. spoke with Mami Chula on Atlanta radio station 105.7, where he explained that the situation was merely a “brother moment ‘and the two superstars are still (and shall remain) friends…
To be honest with you, it wasn’t a point of me trying to check Diddy. I was trying to diffuse the situation and keep it from becoming something that could’ve caused me a potential problem by even just being there.
My circumstances are different from Diddy’s or whoever Diddy was talking to so it was my responsibility at that point to step in and publicly separate myself. Continue Reading…
Last night as the who’s who of Atlanta converged on ATL Live on the Park for Jagged Edge’s return to the stage, there was an underlying storm brewing amongst the crowd.

R.L. (of Next) apparently wanted to take a photo with one of the Jagged Edge twins, who dissed the r&b star by brushing off the pic! RL was pissed and felt like he had been disrespected.
After the incident RL shocked Jazzy Pha as he acknowledged the diss on a video Jazzy was hosting for IndieHeat.
RL walked up in the middle of taping pissed off about it and goes into a tirade, stating:
Lemme tell you what just happened! I just took a picture with one of the twins… I think it was Kyle. ‘
The other twin walked by and was like “I can’t even fake it.”
He goes on to say:
Why would one of the Jagged Edge twins NOT wanna take a picture with a ni**a from Next? Just because?
I love Jagged… I love 112!! That right there is Nigga Sh*t! Me? I bought all their records and I’ll continue to do it. Why? Cause I love Black music.
During the rant RL implied something about how Black artists are always divided that’s why they can’t get to the money. Sad but true…
Check out video of RL’s tirade below: Continue Reading…
Alfamega has issued an OPEN LETTER to T.I. regarding all the drama behind his being let go from Grand Hustle. In it, Alfa addresses all the times he’s had Tip’s back and his disappointment in how everything went down. Alfa was once coined “Grand Hustle Muscle” for his obvious devotion to T.I. and his well-being, and spills the beans about all of the altercations he played the strong arm. I actually took a moment to read the letter last night and feel that he’s being genuine and sincere in expressing his disappointment and also in his revelations regarding incidents concerning his family, specifically his 15 year old daughter who Alfa says was confronted at the skating rink by some of Tip’s cohorts.
We all know that Tip is in jail and can’t really fight this battle right now, but Alfa is requesting at least a phone call from his former boss so that they can squash all the drama that’s going on in the streets:
Once this is published, I’m giving you a week to call me. Should you choose to not call me within that timeframe, I’ll know exactly where we stand. At that point, we’ll separate and we can get it off like Muhammad Ali v/s George Foreman in The Rumble in the Jungle. It will be what it is, you on your side of the ring and me on mine. Instead of a boxing ring, it’ll be the studios and instead of boxing gloves, it’ll be me lyrically pounding you.
I dunno what can come of this. I’m hoping for the best cause I know it’s real in the field and I don’t want to see these two Black men battle. Hopefully they can find some common ground and move forward peacefully. Read Alfamega’s full 2 page letter to T.I. below:
Atlanta bred comedian Shawty (What Yo Name Is) seems a lil bit upset that comedian Lil Duval has transplanted into Atlanta and “stolen his swag.” Not only is he mad, but he has challenged Lil Duval to a battle to prove who’s the funniest between the two short men. Now…if you from the “A” you know that Shawty’s been around a looooong “A”zz time. Hell, his shawt “A”zz has been everywhere…he was even spotted chillin in Nelly’s infamous Tip Drill Video. Shawty’s quick to admit that he may not be the funniest comic in the world but says he definitely can hold his own against Lil Duval and will put his own money up to prove it:
“I got $30,0000….tell him to put up $30,000. Winner take all. (For what?) A comedy battle. We can do it. We could do a reality show. It could be skits, jokes and the real sh*t in the club… Hood like! Or we could just go straight up on the stage goddammit!”
Shawty says he’s got that CASH money waiting but feels that Lil Duval is NOT gonna go for it. From listening to his rant, there seems to be a lil funnyman beef going on. Shawty is a really funny dude and so is Lil Duval. I’d pay good money to see these two battle it out and I rarely pay for anything.

T.I. was interviewed by Neke at 92Q in Baltimore recently where he discussed his two new singles and his involvment in the Hip Hop Caucus’ drive to promote voter’s registration. Tip presented Keke with a shirt from his new clothing line bearing the words “Respect My Vote” and also gave her the shirt off his back (literally) cause she liked it so much. Neke then tries to get Tip caught up by asking him if he called Shawty Lo to help in the drive, his reply… “Who?”…”Man Hell Naw!”” Check out the full interview under the cut: Continue Reading…
