Awwww…how sweet is this? I got this video today and I just wanted to share it! It’s a video montage of hip hop stars and sports figures with their children. 50 cent, T.I., Snoop, Lil Jon, Carmelo Anthony, JaRule, Allen Iverson, Jim Jones, Juelz Santana, Andre 3000, Big Boi, Dame Dash….and more!
“I want to be on the record as saying that “Raz B” Thorton and Ricardo Thorton are lying regarding Chris Stokes. Chris is a father figure to myself, and many others in the industry. He’s guided us, helped raised us and is nothing more than an inspiration and someone I respect to and look up to. I have spent countless hours, days, weeks and months with the man since the age of 5 and have never once seen him behave inappropriately. He’s married to my aunt and I know this man very well. I stand behind him with no question whatsoever,” said Omarion.
“I have grown up around Chris and this is crazy to me. These people have damaged me, and my reputation and I won’t stand silent and will do all within my means to speak the truth about this matter,” said Omarion.

?Atlanta’s Hip Hop community?reeling?over the unexpected?death of UGK’s Pimp C.?? Rashan Ali of Atlanta radio station Hot 107.9’s “The A-Team” spoke this morning about her efforts to honor UGK at their annual?Dirty Awards. DJ. Drama gave UGK credit for paving the way for southern artists and while Andre 3000’s rep said he had no comment, Big Boi issued the following comment:
First and foremost my prayers go out to Pimp C?s family and Bun B. He was a dear friend and colleague, one of the most honorable men in the game. He will definitely be missed, but his legacy will live on through the music of UGK and Bun B.? (Source)
UGK?will not be the same without the voice of Pimp C.
Pimp C of UGK (aka Chad Butler) was found dead in an L.A. hotel earlier today.?? There were no signs of foul play and no evidence of drug use.???All signs point to natural causes but he was only 33 years old.?
To a mainstream audience, Pimp C was best known for UGK’s cameo on the Jay-Z hit “Big Pimpin’,” and for “Free Pimp C” T-shirts and shout-outs, ubiquitous in rap several years ago while he was jailed on gun charges. On Tuesday, his MySpace page had been changed to read: “C the Pimp is FREE at last.”?(Source)
