Clifford “T.I.” Harris is on the grind and he’s on a mission to “F*ck da City Up” with some hot new beats by Dre!
It’s no secret that Dr. Dre was in town last week working with Tip on his latest mixtape, which drops New Year’s day (January 1, 2012).
The two were spotted hanging out at various locations around Atlanta, including Stroker’s Strip Club, where they posed for the photo above and STK restaurant, where excited patrons tweeted about the sighting.
What could be hotter than a Tip/Dre collaboration??
Snoop De-Oh-double-Gee aka Calvin Broadus celebrated his big 4-0 last week with his wife Shaunte Broadus and kids by his side as he was presented with a cake topped by a Colt 45 malt liquor bottle.
Tha Doggfather held his private private birthday bash at Rolling Stone Lounge in Hollywood and he was treated to a performance by funk pioneer Bootsy Collins and a special birthday serenade by the legendary Chaka Khan.
The cute couple were also joined by several of Snoop’s celebrity friends, including Dr. Dre, Too $hort, The Lady of Rage, Warren G, DJ Quik, and Tyrese.
Remember Michel’le from back in the day? The singer had a squeaky, high-pitched speaking voice which totally changed once she opened her mouth to sing. Anyway, the old school singer has filed child support charges against her ex-hubby, Marion Suge Knight and is seeking over $40,000 of unpaid court-order spousal and child support for their 7 year old daughter, Balei (pictured above):
Singer Michel’le has filed child support charges against her Ex-husband Marion Suge Knight, reports the Wall Street Journal. Michel’le is asking for $40,476 in three-months of unpaid court-ordered spousal and child support. In addition to the $40,476, she is asking that she receive $13,492 in child support each month for her child Balei, whom she had with the former head of Death Row records seven years ago. In 1997, Toussaint “agreed to marry Knight while he was serving a prison sentence for assault and battery.” Soon after Bailei’s birth in 2002, her relationship with Suge Knight ended.
In the coming months, Michel’le will be heading to bankruptcy court since Suge is believed to be bankrupt; Suge filed for bankruptcy three years ago.
Michel’le also has another son named Marcel, with whom she had with rapper/producer Dr. Dre. (Source)
A lot of people are surprised to hear of Michel’le’s links to both Dre and Suge but she and Dre were in a longterm relationship way before he even left the World Class Wrecking Crew. Michel’le was even featured on a WCWC song, “Turn off the lights” and her 1st CD album was produced by her then boyfriend Dre. I’m almost positive her relationship with the both of them was one of the factors in Death Row’s demise.
Andre Young, Jr. the son of legendary producer Dr. Dre, has been found dead in his Woodland Hills, California home. The 20 year old was found unresponsive when his mother went to check on him around 10am Saturday morning. The cause of death has yet to be determined and is pending a toxicology report. (Source)
Not to confused with Curtis Young who was attempting to follow in his father’s footsteps as a rapper/producer and had taken the moniker “Hood Doctor.” More details are sure to follow and my prayers go out to the Young family.
Dr. Dre can’t catch a break with his family nowadays. First his moms wrote a book about him, and now his own daughter has made a movie in his honor. Manaj, Dre’s 23 year old daughter has created a web documentary chronicling her attempts to break into the music industry and details how her legendary Hip Hop producer father offered no support for her rap career. The flick was originally put on hold, but now it’s been released and is being sold online. Of course I have a clip for you…
