Big Boi aka Daddy Fat Sacks aka Dick Fury aka Sir Lucious Leftfoot aka my baby daddy… shot over a few behind the scenes shots from his upcoming “Shutterbug” video, which was directed by Chris Robinson.
Common was in town last week promoting the upcoming release of his new feature film “Just Wright” with Queen Latifah. The movie is a romantic comedy that marks Common’s leading man debut.
In his first starring role, he plays an NBA All-Star (Scott McKnight) who gets torn between true love with Queen Latifah’s character and groupie love from her friend who aspires to be an NBA trophy wife.
On preparing for his role in “Just Wright”:
One of my friends that plays in the NBA, Barron Davis, I just went and talk to him not only about the NBA but also what made him start playing basketball. Then I would just be around him and look at his lifestyle and talk to him about all of the thoughts and experiences he had. Then I got to talk to D. Wade and a couple of other cats that play in the league.
Everyday, I would train with the assistant coach from the New Jersey Nets and at the time I was filming the movie “Date Night”. So during the day, I would do whatever physical training and whatever preparation for my character. Just staying focus and trying to eat healthy… It was like a training camp, a boot camp but I loved it though.
Common sat down with StraightFromTheA.com and also shared a bit of information about his life lessons, his relationship with tennis star Serena Williams and revealed that he’s been dodging a crazed stalker! Continue Reading…
Big Boi aka Daddy Fat Sacks aka Sir Luscious Leftfoot aka my future ex-husband aka the son of Chico Dusty invited me for a special listening session last night at Stankonia Studios. As I was treated to a musical tour of Twan’s unrealeased cd by candlelight and kush, I felt a familiar affinity to the music. This ain’t just no regular CD y’all! I’ve already got a few favorites. I was sworn to secrecy but there’s quite a few surprises in store and I’m almost positive that Sir Luscious Leftfoot: The Son of Chico Dusty will be an instant classic.
Big Boi cleared up a few rumors last night as well, the first being that he’s signed to Def Jam. He’s not. He says that his album company came back to him with an offer he couldn’t refuse so he’s still Jive and he ain’t going nowhere.
It’s taken some time to complete this album cause classics aren’t created overnight, but from the tracks I heard, it’s well worth the wait. I talked Big Boi into going live last night and we acted a fool on UStream for a while. I dunno if it was the Kush or my company, but Big Boi eventually decided to premiere an ENTIRE song for his fans, LIVE…on air last night! The song, “For Your Sorrows” features George Clinton and Too Short and he got quite a bit of positive feedback. So much so, that he promised to send over the full HQ version in a few days.
So check out our ustream footage from last night below to listen to the world premiere of Big Boi’s “For Your Sorrows” : Continue Reading…
Grand Hustle’s resident funnyman Lil Duval (aka Roland Powell)celebrated his birthday last night at Luckie Food Lounge. Not only did he don his favorite high-yella Super Fly polyester birthday suit, but the crazy “A”zz comic drank all the liquor in the building and partied til the wee hours of the morning. I have absolutely no idea how old the birthday boy is now but according to his wikipedia page, he’s 32 this year.
Happy Birthday Lil Duval!
Lil Duval’s cake (yes that’s real cash!) ~ I have no idea who Snake is but Happy Birthday to him too.
Lil Duval and Grand Hustle’s Jason Geter share a toast in celebration.

Lil Duval spared not one drop of liquor!
You would have thought he coulda poured out a lil for his missing patna, Tip but nooooo! He drank it ALL and you can best believe he was feeling it and probably still is. Of course I got it all on tape…I keeps my Mino running even with dranks in hand. Ha!
More photos and hilarious video footage of Lil Duval’s drunk “A”zz under the cut:
I sat down with Pleasure P a few days ago during his private listening session for his upcoming solo project entitled “The Introduction of Marcus Cooper.” Prior to us getting down to business, P decided to go ahead an answer the one burning question that was on everyone’s mind: What the hell did he think of his former Pretty Ricky bandmate Sexy Spec’s Grind Challenge video? The answer surprised quite a few of us, since those red speedo’s and fruity spins were fresh on all our brains:
I ain’t gone let y’all sit and talk bad about him…because I was once in a group with him and I’m never gonna forget that. I was on the stage with him and we had a lot of good times. I would never let nobody talk bad about him around me. While I’m here, if y’all would please just keep down your comments and stuff…. I just want him to do his thang and that’s what he’s doing and I’m doing me. That’s the best way I can handle this situation.
And if I were your homeboy, I would do the same thing. If I was in a group with you, even if we don’t talk, even if we ain’t cool no more… I would never throw you under the bus. Never.
Pleasure P’s a real stand up dude! I can really respect that. *sigh* OK…since we got that out the way early, we were all free to enjoy the unreleased music we voluntarily came to hear. I was actually quite impressed by several tracks.
Peep a few samples from Pleasure P’s upcoming album below as well as his explanation as to why he finally left Pretty Ricky:
