I started StraightFromTheA back in 2007 as a way to creatively share my thoughts on several topics in urban pop culture and since that time, have had my share of controversy surrounding a few of my opinionated posts… ie the Tameka Raymond saga during she and Usher’s divorce, Nene Leakes’ twitter beef over being outed about her fake divorce, Kim Zolciak’s foul mouthed insults and most recently Sheree Whitfield‘s Chateau Sheree beef.

During one of my soapbox moments, I uttered the phrase ‘freedom of speech ain’t free’ and I’m personally starting to believe that’s a fact.
As my audience grows, my right to my opinion diminishes and now it’s becoming more evident everyday that when I write things that people don’t like, they will do the most to shut me up.
There’s a vast array of posts on this site. I’ve collected over 6 years worth of my opinionated thoughts on issues that sometimes were only of interest to me.
That being said… there are several posts written regarding that whole Raz B/Chris Stokes drama that Stokes apparently doesn’t want any of you to read (again) and he’s been threatening me for years in an attempt to intimidate me to remove them.
WARNING! This post is long as hail and filled with documentation…. Continue Reading…
Riddle me this… what grown “A”zz man would get a restraining order against lil bitty Raz-B?
Well the answer is apparently Marques Houston. Houston tried unsuccessfully a few years back to get a restraining order against Raz-B after Raz accused him (and Chris Pokes) of molesting him as a child (click HERE if you missed that)
Now the former boy bander has hit the courthouse yet again because he’s so afraid of Raz-B (real dame De’mario Thornton) that he feels he needs police protection.

DeMario “Raz B” Thornton
of the former boy band B2K may be readying to set the music industry upside down with claims that several popular artists are participating in homosexual activities.
Raz-B plans to release a tell-all book later this year entitled, This Boy’s Life, where he details claims he was once molested by his cousin/manager Chris Stokes during the years he was with B2K.
Thornton released videos back in 2007 where Stokes is recorded admitting to the molestation (WATCH), but after he reportedly received a cash payment of $10,000, Raz B made another video retracting his previous statements.
In his upcoming memoirs, Raz B makes additional allegations of forced orgies between he and the other members of B2k.
Thornton also also alleges fellow artists like Bow Wow and Chris Brown were involved with sexual relationships with members of the band!

Former B2K boy bander Raz B and his brother Ricky Romance were allegedly roughed up and kicked out of an Atlanta club during the Salute the DJs event and it was all caught on tape!
Witness claim that several security guards jumped on stage to assist in the old school beat down of the two brothers, who have gained fame and national attention after RazB accused their former manager, Chris Stokes, of molesting them as young boys.
This latest Raz B drama comes on the heels of a hot & heavy twitter beef between Chris Brown and Raz, where Raz B & his brother targeted Chris Brown (who we all know has anger management problems) by insulting him online.

In what can only be described as KARMA (especially since Raz is also known for recording conversations without consent *cough* Ray J), RazB and Ricky Romance’s embarrassment was quadrupled as several attendees of the event hit the social networking site Twitter to offer a play by play.
Check out the word on the “tweets” PLUS the soon to be classic video footage of the “beatdown” under the cut: Continue Reading…
Twitter timelines were off the chain Wednesday afternoon as former B2K band member, Raz B began a war of words against R&B singers Eric Benet and Chris Brown.
While Benet didn’t bother to respond, Brown launched a vicious attack against Raz B that quickly escalated from disrespectful to offensive and shocking as he began to reference Raz B’s molestation accusations against former manager, Chris Stokes. Brown continued to post homophobic statements and doctored photos of the singer for several hours.

I compared this situation to the infamous T.I./Shawty Lo Beef where Tip compared Lo to a dog howling at the Moon.
In that classic clip of Tip’s response (which you can revist HERE), he smoothly let Shawty Lo know that no response was really necessary by providing an analogy of a dog howling at the moon.
The dog constantly barks at the moon, but the moon is so far away and shining so bright that the moon doesn’t care about that dog. Eventually that dog (Shawty Lo) will have to sit and admire the moon (T.I).
He ends the analogy with: “Just admire the moon dawg!”.
But Chris ain’t that slick. He couldn’t just let it ride and now he’s issued a public apology… Continue Reading…
