Seems like it was just yesterday that Yung Joc
‘s Atlanta studio was robbed at gunpoint
and now he’s facing a different kind of battle.
Yung Joc and Block Enterprises are currently being sued by an Atlanta music company claiming legal control over the rapper’s entire music career!
Diddy booted Joc from Bad Boy records several years ago, after the rapper, along with Block Enterprises were alleged to have failed their contractual agreement by refusing to fork over royalties and other fees they agreed upon.
It was rumored that Diddy blackballed Joc over the matter after Joc chose to sue Bad Boy. Fast forward through 5 years and a FREE Grind Flu mixtape, and you’ll find that the Bad Boy bug just won’t go away for Joc!

It was a hometown celebration as Super Producer Nitti Beatz was honored with a birthday bash last Friday (January 21, 2011) at Atlanta’s Cream Ultra Lounge.
This event, which doubled as Cream’s grand opening affair, was hosted by Young Joc; super-producer Bangledesh, Robert Mathis and Philip Wheeler of the Indianapolis Colts, and Jerious Norwood of the Atlanta Falcons.

Nitti and his crew totally rocked the spot, with just about everybody who’s ever been touched by a Nitti beat rocking the mic. Dorrough rocked “Ice Cream Paint Job,” 8Ball performed the hit “DJ Bring it Back,” and Joc (who has just about cornered the market on Nitti Beats) rocked the crowd as well.

The “A” Team was in full effect, posted up in the back of the V.I.P. taking it all in. 8Ball & MJG are my personal favs so I was in heaven! Not to mention we ended up in the NFL corner with Roddy White and nem…

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…

Last Saturday, Atlanta was host to the unveiling of Rémy Martin V – the first clear spirit from the House of Rémy Martin. The event was hosted by Takers star and acclaimed actor Idris Elba, with DJ Jazzy Jeff on the ones and twos…
Yung Joc as well as and many other industry players, all came out to get a taste of the new Rémy V. Noticeably absent was Atlanta rapper T.I., who as you know was named Rémy Martin’s “Global Creative Consultant” a few months back.

There’s no word on if Tip is keeping his consultant position in lieu of his recent legal issues, but Idris was heard telling party-goers that he was excited to be asked to celebrate the launch of V in Atlanta, and was seen sipping on some signature cocktails such as the “Victor.”
Looks like a great time was had for all!
