Byrd Gang leader Jim Jones‘ trial for assault was reportedly delayed after he appeared in a New York City courtroom today (April 21).

While an official statement has yet to surface, Jimmy updated fans via his Twitter account of the day’s proceedings and also called for help from television host Oprah Winfrey.

“Back in court for the bullsh*t Louis Vuitton incident,” Jones wrote unmodified. “No marijuana eyes though, kept it sober for this morning but guess what I have in the car? Still waiting in this court room lol…And now I’m sitting here waiting for a trial date sometime in June. I swear n*ggas is suckers, is there no rules to this sh*t no more?

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 »
