There was a whole lotta bottle poppin going on in Atlanta last weekend as Omarion
celebrated signing to Rick Ross
‘ Maybach Music Group (May 12, 2012).
[Sidebar: Lil Wayne got Bow Wow's paw print on Young Money Records so you know it was only a matter of time before Omarion (who was dropped from YMCMB in '09) found him a new sponsor. Hopefully Omarion will actually "do work" this time as opposed to Bow Wow who has just been dropping mixtapes for months. But I digress... ]
Rawse, Omarion, DJ Drama, Sheneka Adams, Bu Thiam (Konvict Muzik) and more hit Atlanta’s LIFE nightclub and it looks like “O” is ready willing and able to get the job done!

Teairra Mari is chucking the “Deuces” on behalf of the female population in her remix of the Chris Brown hit.
The song is from her DJ Drama-hosted mixtape “The Night Before X-Mas”, which is due sometime in late November.
“Boy I know you thought I’d never leave ya (bullshit). I never hesitate to throw my peace up. Oh yeah I bought that Bentley (stupid)/Give them keys up. N*gga couldn’t see he had a good thing.
Don’t be having yo Mama tryna call me. Tomorrow act like you ain’t never saw me. Save all yo money on the flowers and the candy. You wasn’t buying all that sh*t when you had me. So….. yeah. I’m chucking up my DEUCES!
I would have personally preferred a Jazmine Sullivan version of “Deuces” but Teairra will do for now. Listen/Download her version of the track below: Continue Reading…
T.I. dropped by the Wendy Williams show Friday (May 28) to promote his upcoming cd, “King Uncaged” and his new movie, “Takers.” He also spoke about the Woodland Middle School Controversy, where the parents were upset that he spoke to kids at the school:
Well to be perfectly honest… speaking freely if I may, I honestly believe that they should be more concerned with the message than the guy giving the message. I think they should have asked their children ‘what did you hear,” “what did he say?’
The complaints came after the fact. I think they should have asked ‘what did this guy tell you?’ I think the message is more important than who’s giving it. Because if it had been an accountant, a dentist… someone else coming in giving the same message, the message wouldn’t have been received.
You tell’em Tip!

Grammy Award-winning musician, Wyclef Jean was in Atlanta recently promoting the release of his mixtape EP, Wyclef Jean AKA Toussaint St Jean From The Hut To The Projects To The Mansion, a collaboration with DJ Drama.
Toussaint St. Jean, the title character of the new CD, is a persona suggested to Wyclef by his friend and collaborator rapper T.I. and is loosely based on an 18th-century Haitian revolutionary hero.
Wyclef and Drama hit up Criminal Records in Little Five Points where they performed during a free concert and gave away $50 gift cards through a venture with Western Union. The pair also appeared on Good Day Atlanta, where Wyclef spoke about his humanitarian efforts and performed a song off the EP.
