A party ain’t a party without Dwight Eubanks and a special “stunting” acknowledgment goes to Foxy Brown’s blue contact lenses.
Also spotted were Fabolous, Wiz Khalifa, Lola Monroe & more. Judging from the photos, BET’s “Rip the Runway” is gonna be a hoot!

Wiz Khalifa hit up StraightFromTheA yesterday as one of his many stops to promote his upcoming album “Rolling Papers.”
Not only does the “Black & Yellow” MC have the hottest song on repeat from coast to coast, but he has officially hit the blogs running over the past few months. Khalifa’s hot single has been dubbed the #1 song in the country, but only after he gained his mandatory hip-hop mugshot after getting busted with a bus load of weed back in November.
All press is good press right? And to add fuel to his already burning flame, Wiz has been linked to hip-hop’s most notorious arm piece, Amber Rose.
Photos of the couple have been making the blog rounds all week courtesy of a recent feature in Fader Magazine and a bitter tweet from Amber’s ex… Kanye West.
A number #1 song, several hot mixtapes, a movie on deck, a hot broad and a highly anticipated major label debut should give anyone the “big head” but Wiz Khalifa is surprisingly level headed and calm in the midst of all his rising fame.

B.o.B., Whiz Khalifa & Bruno Mars cover the February/March 2011 issue of Vibe Magazine.
Vibe refers to the trio as “The New Pop Music” and offers the follwing explanation:
“…each of them has taken their own sound and infiltrated the masses thereby making them figures in popular culture and pop music. Don’t front, you know you can turn to any Top 40 music station and hear their music.”
I guess they’re right. These three have infiltrated R&B, Pop AND Hip-Hop. It’s a beautiful thing!

Another day, another dumb “A” rapper gets arrested! Meet Cameron Thomaz age, 22. You may know Thomas by his rap stage name, Wiz Khafifa or perhaps his catchy “Black & Yellow” song more likely rings a bell. [Sidebar: that’s the only way I knew him.]
Whatever the case, Wiz Khalifa was arrested last night immediately after he performed his hit song for East Carolina University. The rapper reportedly sent out a tweet bragging about his weed stash and officers took the rapper into custody after searching his tour bus.
Khalifa was booked into the jail at around 1:30 a.m. He posted $300,000 bail and was released from detention at around 8 a.m. ET. He was charged with a felony count of trafficking in marijuana, a felony count of maintaining a dwelling/vehicle/place for sale or storage of marijuana and one misdemeanor charge of possession of drug paraphernalia.
According to MTV, nine other people were arrested along with Khalifa on the same charges and were still in jail at press time.
Idiocracy is running rampant these days. All I know is, Wiz Khalifa’s got an arrest record under his belt. That usually spells S.U.C.C.E.S.S. in the rap game.
