After releasing a mock funeral of his rap nemesis 50 Cent over the weekend, Rick Ross has dropped the full version of his “Cold Blood” music video.

The music video takes place from a funeral home as Ross looks over Fif’s casket.

Dressed in all black with gloves and shades, the Miami rapper uses a variety of dark elements to illustrate the end of 50’s career. While the track takes aim at dissing G-Unit members and 50 by saying, “I’m addicted to watches, momma telling me to stop it, got one over 50, 50 you better watch it,” Ross also added a preacher to confirm the passing. “We’re gathered today, ladies and gentleman, to celebrate a good famous rapper, Curtis Jackson,” he tells an empty church. “Curtis Jackson was a good man! He was good for the community.” (Spliff TV) Read the rest of this entry »

Though he once dated Joe Budden‘s current girlfriend Tahiry, New York rapper Fabolous has no ill feelings towards the current King magazine cover girl.

Fabolous told SOHH that he’s happy that Tahiry scored her first magazine cover.

“I definitely think it was big for her being that she’s never been on the cover of anything. I think that’s kind of an accomplishment to say the least,” he said. “She’s not a model. She’s just Joe Budden’s girlfriend and she ended up being on King mag. It’s just congratulations really.  The stupid rapper right here would’ve said something else, that would’ve got another blog made back at me but it’s congratulations. I’m happy for her.”  Read the rest of this entry »

Skull Gang leader Juelz Santana has expressed his distance from Cam’ron detailing the resistance to re-join his former boss.

“At the end of the day, I’m just glad people get to see the type of person, you know, I would say he really is,” Juelz explained. “Because at the end of the day, you know, once again as much as he would like to say, he said a lot of things about Jim called him about this, which I really don’t know about. But we all had separate relationships at the end of the day. And he has yet to still tell people what Juelz did. Let’s be serious. At the end of the day, he can’t look in the mirror when it comes to me ’cause he knows how loyal I was, how much of a brother I was to him. It kinda makes me feel good ’cause it lets the people know like, y’all ain’t gotta ask me that question, he telling y’all. No matter what the fans want, I’m not doing it.” (MTV) Read the rest of this entry »

Chrihanna Saga Continues

With less than a week until Chris Brown’s April 6 arraignment, rumors continue to swirl around the couple who are currently putting some distance between each other. The latest from the rumor mill has Rihanna requesting a public apology from Chris – as a guest on Oprah Winfrey’s talk show.

Sources affiliated with Look Magazine say “Rihanna has been talking to Oprah Winfrey on a regular basis since late February when Oprah begged her not to take Chris back. She’s been having second thoughts about them being back together.”

“Agreeing to go on Oprah’s show and tell the world how sorry he is will help make up her mind,” the insider went on to tell Look Magazine.

Sorry or not, even an apology may not keep Rihanna from taking the stand against her man. Contrary to a story released by Fox News Monday night, both Rihanna’s lawyer and the Los Angeles County District Attorney Spokesperson say the “Take A Bow” diva is cooperating with the Chris Brown ‘making criminal threats’ and ‘felony assault’ case.
