Wife of rapper T.I. charged with drug possession

tiny_ti_wife_drugs.jpgLos Angeles, California (CNN) -- The Los Angeles County district attorney filed a misdemeanor drug possession charge against "Tiny" Tameka Cottle, the wife of rapper T.I., Friday.

Cottle, 35, was arrested along with her husband after police found suspected drugs during a West Hollywood traffic stop last month.

She is accused of possessing MDMA, commonly known as ecstasy, according to the court filing.

Drug charges against T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris, were dropped by prosecutors on Monday.

Harris, 29, must still must report to a federal prison by next Monday to begin serving an 11-month sentence imposed by a judge who ruled his arrest and a subsequent failed drug test violated his probation on a weapons conviction.

Jah Cure Video Leaked - Never Say Never Techno Version

“...what was leaked is a substandard version that is not fully edited.”

jahcure_video_leak_techno.jpgInternational Reggae artist Jah Cure is now the latest victim of intellectual property theft. Rickman Warren of Jamplified Records is now fuming after the leaking of the video of Jah Cure’s latest hit for the label "Never Say Never" on Friday of last week.

The video, for the techno version of the song was shot this fall and was being edited when a version popped up on Youtube. The leak spread virally around the net and popped up on sites as far away as Scandinavia. Warren, who produced the track and conceptualized the video says the leaked version was not the final version: “The video was being edited and we don’t know how, but someone got a hold of it and leaked it online. We would not be as upset if it was the final product but what was leaked is a substandard version that is not fully edited.”

Never Say Never in ‘Techno-Color’ was shot in Kingston at Victoria House by video director Asha who is credited with directing Jah Cure’s first video for the song Sticky and recently directed Jah Cure’s Unconditional Love in Havana, Cuba, and You’ll Never Find. The video was shot in front of both a green and black screens and features several scenes which will appeal to techno ravers and dancehall fans alike.

Barbee VS Barbie - Barbee Talks About Dutty Love Video

Who Had Barbee Cut Out Of Sean Kingston's Dutty Love Video & Why?

By Marvin Shadi
Dirty South Hip Hop

barbee_vs_barbie.jpg

The battle of the Barbies began this past August, as a proverbial shot was fired that echoed throughout the West Indies, and then into America. The American born Jamaica raised young superstar Sean Kingston, called on Pop-Reggae starlet Barbee, widely known and loved throughout the islands, to be the primary female in his new video "Letting Go". "Jamaican Barbee," as she is called, was chosen by Sean's own mother for the role of Kingston's love interest in the video which has over 5 million views on YouTube.

The young singer looking to cross over into American pop jumped at the chance to be seen in this major production which was directed by none other than veteran video director, Little X. Young Money raptress Nicki Minaj was also featured and both of the "Barbies" were in attendance to do their "ting" in the video which was being shot in Jamaica, assuring a heavy public turnout. But when the video was premiered on BET, the principle Barbee had been strategically and mysteriously removed from over 30 frames, throughout the video. The Jamaican community, here and on the mainland, were outraged with their "original" Barbee being purged from the video while having to watch the Trini-American Barbie chat a rap in patois. The question on everyone’s mind is, who had Barbee cut out of the video and why?

HHW: Where are you from?
Barbee: I was born in New York and went to live in Jamaica, my mother's homeland and also Nigeria, my father's homeland. I also did some growing up in the Bronx.

Rihanna Reveals How She Recovered from Chris Brown

By Monique Jessen

rihanna_sad_girl.jpgWhen it came to her abusive relationship with Chris Brown, Rihanna says it changed her for the better - and, as a result, she's now stronger and happier than ever before.

"I couldn't have been the woman I am, the friend, or the sister or the artist, or the role model I am today if I didn't go through what I went through," the singer, 22, tells then British Marie Claire for its December issue.

After the violent incident back in February 2009 that left her with physical injuries and her then-boyfriend Brown, now 21, charged with assault, Rihanna recalls: "I felt like an empty vessel."

Speaking through tears, she adds, "It's scary, you just lose touch of everything that you love and everything that you would normally do; how you would dress or how you would say something."

On whether she resented the details of that fateful evening becoming public knowledge, she shakes her head.

The singer, who assaulted then-girlfriend Rihanna in February 2009, said that he has matured into a "great guy".

He told Access Hollywood: "Everything is good, I'm definitely - me personally and mentally - I'm a great guy now. I'm more of a person who is definitely more positive.

"I have new music coming real soon; I'm in the studio, back and forth, continuously, just having fun. I'm going to continue to make great dance videos and just be me."

Rihanna recently revealed that Brown's domestic violence was the wake-up call she needed to end their relationship.

New bail conditions don't guarantee release for Buju Banton

Buju Banton Still Behind Bars

Times staff

buju_banton_jail_prison_florida.jpgTAMPA - A judge Wednesday set new bail conditions for Buju Banton, but it's not certain the reggae star would be released before his retrial on cocaine conspiracy charges in December.

The new conditions include a $300,000 bond secured by the Miami-Dade County home of Stephen Marley, the son of reggae legend Bob Marley.

A security company also must put up a separate $25,000 bond, keep Banton on around-the-clock house arrest at his condominium in Tamarac, fit him with a GPS monitor and install new locks and an alarm system at his home. Banton would not get the keys or the alarm code. U.S. Magistrate Judge Anthony Porcelli said Banton might not make bail before trial. That's because prosecutors plan to appeal the bail conditions, and an immigration judge still would have to consider whether to lift a hold on the native of Jamaica.

Banton, 37, is charged with trying to buy 5 kilograms, or 11 pounds, of cocaine. His first trial ended in a mistrial in September.

Wyclef, Shaggy and More Rock Waterford High School

shaggy_wyclef_jean_lime.jpg

If someone had told the students of Waterford High they would get the chance to see international superstar, and former Fugee, Wyclef Jean perform live, they would have thought it was a hoax.

However, telecommunications giant, LIME, made it possible and gave the students a surprise many may find difficult to top. Wyclef, who made a bombshell appearance on Friday afternoon on the grounds of Waterford High as part of LIME's School Tour in the St. Catherine region, gave not only a brief, yet stellar performance, he also encouraged the students to only reach for the best.

"If you come from the ghetto, don't let them tell you, you're nothing. People from ghetto are the only ones who can take a rock and turn it into a diamond," said Wyclef, former Haitian presidential hopeful, shortly after performing his hit, Sweetest Girl (Dollar Bill).

Fellow international heavy-hitter, Shaggy, who had called Wyclef to the stage, also made his entrance to thunderous roars from the students. Reeling off a catalogue of hits including, Angel, Strength Of A Woman and the recent For Your Eyes Only featuring Alaine, the notorious 'Mr. Boombastic' was an instant hit with the students.

Lovers Rock Legend Gregory Isaacs Passes Away

Reggae icon Gregory Isaacs has passed away following a lengthy battle with cancer.

gregory-isaacs-died.jpgEntering the Jamaican music scene when still in his teens, Gregory Isaacs took his time getting established. Working with a variety of labels the singer gained invaluable experience, working on a raft of different projects.

Coming of age in the era of Roots Reggae, Gregory Isaacs favoured something lighter, more soulful. The singer's cuts became hugely popular in the UK, helping to spark the Lovers Rock genre.

A smoother take on reggae, the success of Lovers Rock saw Gregory Isaacs move to the UK. Signing with the Virgin Records imprint Front Line, the singer was tipped for potential stardom in Britain and the United States.

However it was not to be. Despite recording some of his best work with Front Line the singer was denied extensive success, and drug problem saw his touring activities dwindle away to nothing.

Battling drug abuse for two decades, Gregory Isaacs eventually lost most of his teeth as his health began to decline. Battling back, the Jamaican singer kicked his habit and began recording again.

Diagnosed with liver cancer earlier this year, the illness then spread across his body, reports the BBC. Entering hospital, Gregory Isaacs sadly passed away at his home in London this morning (October 26th).

Perhaps best known for the hit 'Night Nurse' Gregory Isaacs is a pivotal figure in the development of reggae.

Amongst those paying tribute to the singer is Dancehall heroine Lady Chann, who wrote on her Twitter: "RIP to a great Reggae legend who passed over today. Greggory Issac... Salute to u. Xx xx"

Thanks to our good friend Robin Murray from Clashmusic for this brilliant review

fambo_ft_beenie_man_redbull.jpgThe deejay, who is currently enjoying a resurgence in his career, is having repeated drinks of rum and Red Bull, toasting the success of his single of the same name.

A combination with the Doctor Beenie Man, Rum & Red Bull easily charmed its way into the psyche of the dancehall massive and quickly secured the number one slot in Jamaica. It has now taken on the proverbial wings, as it flies overseas to dominate new markets and make the year 2010 one of the most memorable so far in Future Fambo's 16-year career.

The Seanizzle-produced single made its way to Toronto, Canada, where it had fans blaring it from their car radios, so it was no surprise when it topped the chart there. Currently Rum & Red Bull is exciting England, where, by all accounts, it has been an instant hit, muscling its way onto the BBC 1Xtra chart and settling comfortably at its favourite position, the peak.

People: Tyra sued over underage 'sex addict'

By Tony Hicks
Contra Costa Times

tyra_banks.jpgSeems that when 15-year-old Jewel Ciera Washington appeared on Tyra Banks's talk show in October 2009 as a self-proclaimed "sex-addict," that was news to her mother.

D'oh.

Beverly McClendon filed a $1 million lawsuit against Banks, 36, alleging negligence and violating a right of privacy. The lawsuit claims the mom never consented to have her daughter appear on the show. In fact, she says her daughter hasn't even been diagnosed as a sex addict.

Stating McClendon "suffered damages as a result of the defendants' negligence," the court papers, filed Oct. 8, also allege the Atlanta-based mother "filed a missing person's report with the local police department" once she realized her daughter secretly fled her home.

Banks' rep -- who may have the worst job in the world this week -- was not available for comment.

Spice Tries To "Jim Screechy" Pregnancy #2?

By Secret Agent
OutAroad.com Writer

spice-jim-screechy-video.jpg

It seems as if Spice's "Jim Screechy" behavior got her pregnant once again. The "Jim Screechy" hit maker is expected to deliver within the next three to four months.

OutAroad.com has gotten a lot of emails and phone calls from fans questioning if she's pregnant. This curiosity aroused after Spice releases a video for her "bunning" hit single "Jim Screechy". In most of the shots the director focuses on Spice relaxing in her bedroom waiting on Joe-grind to come over. Apart from that the other shots were from head to breast. However it was rather easy to figure out that she was pregnant as her fluffy breast defines what had happen a few months ago before Spice decided to reveal the truth behind pregnancy #2 in her song titled "Jim Screechy".

Spice will definitely have to miss-out on Sting this year and several other major events. According to a source Spice and her baby-daddy Nicholas are now busy planning their wedding.

OutAroad.com will keep you posted.

T.I. sentenced to 11 more months in prison

by Simon Vozick-Levinson

rapper-t-ijail-guns.jpgA U.S. District Judge has sentenced T.I. to serve 11 more months in prison for violating his probation, reps for the rapper confirm.

T.I. and wife Tameka “Tiny” Cottle were arrested in early September on suspicion of drug possession during a traffic stop. He was already on probation after serving a term behind bars for a 2008 weapons conviction.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, T.I. told the court that “I screwed up bigtime, and I’m sorry. I’m truly and sincerely sorry. I don’t want and I don’t need to use drugs anymore. I want them out of my life.” But U.S. District Court Judge Charles Pannell Jr. was not swayed, reportedly stating, “I think Mr. Harris had had about the limit of second chances.” T.I. was born Clifford Harris Jr.
A rep for T.I. had no further comment at this time.

Beenie Man promises to thrill fans

TINASHE SIBANDA | HARARE

beenie_man_africa.jpg"Beenie, can I be your girl?" ecstatically screamed a fan of Anthony Moses Davies, popularly known as Beenie Man, after the Jamaican dancehall star had just touched down at Harare International Airport on Friday afternoon.

Although not as big as the Akon welcome in August, the small crowd that came to receive the star injected so much life into the arrival, mobbing him until he had to call out:

"Africa, give me some space!"

The Rastafarian community in Zimbabwe also came in their droves to welcome their brethren.

The Grammy award-winning Jamaican will perform at the Lion Lager Beer Festival that will take place at Old Hararians Sports Club on Saturday.

Bail conditions proposed for reggae star Buju Banton

By Richard Danielson,
Times Staff Writer

buju-banton-free.jpgTAMPA - If internationally known reggae star Buju Banton wants to be released from jail before his re-trial on cocaine conspiracy charges, it won't be cheap.

To make bail, Banton would have to post $250,000 - secured by the equity in a friend's house - wear an electronic monitor and undergo drug testing.

Plus, Banton would have to pay for an around-the-clock security detail, probably composed of off-duty sheriff's deputies, to watch his every move.

Nor would there be many moves to watch.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Anthony Porcelli said that if Banton, 37, whose real name is Mark Myrie, made bail, he would essentially be on house arrest at his home in the Broward County town of Tamarac.

Under conditions described Thursday by Porcelli, Banton could only leave the house, accompanied by his security detail, to meet his lawyer on his case, to go to court, to see the doctor or to pick up medicine prescribed by a doctor.

Rapper T.I. Stops Suicidal Man's Plunging Death; Critics Question His Good Deed

Written by HipHopRX Denise

ti_rapper_save_man.jpgDespite T.I.'s wrongdoings, in good news, the rapper apparently unexpectedly, but coherently, talked a 24 year-old suicidal man from off a ledge of a 22-story building. The man was apparently planning to jump but was swayed from committing suicide in Atlanta, Georgia on Wednesday by rapper T.I.

According to celebrity gossip site TMZ, T.I. heard about the jumper over the radio and called Ryan Cameron at V103 to see if he could assist and help in the situation since the incident happened at the building where the station is located.

Ryan Cameron is stated to have told T.I. to come on over and this is where T.I. met up with the police and discussed what he would like to do.

T.I. born Clifford Harris, Jr recorded a heartfelt message to the jumper to let him know that he wasn't alone and that nothing is so crucial that he should commit suicide and kill himself.

The female MC has set a new record on Billboard's Hot 100 chart by having the most singles on the chart at one time, with seven entries including Ludacris’ “My Chick Bad”, Lil Wayne’s “Knockout”, Trey Songz’ “Bottoms Up”, Usher’s “Lil Freak”, Sean Kingston’s “Letting Go (Dutty Love)”, and Jay Sean’s “2012 (It Ain’t The End)."

Rihanna Says Boyfriend Matt Kemp Prefers Her Loud Ballads

By Mawuse Ziegbe
mtv

matt-kemp-rihanna-dating-dinner.jpgRihanna's making a bold statement with the title of her fifth disc, Loud, but her boyfriend, Los Angeles Dodger Matt Kemp, is all about the quieter moments on her new album.

In an interview with U.K. radio station 95.8 Capital FM, the "Only Girl (In the World)" singer revealed that she's played some of her new tracks for her beau, and while he's feeling most of the record, he's really into the slow jams.

"He really likes, actually, the ballads on the album. Those are his favorite ones," Rihanna said. The songstress, who described the vibe of her next effort as "fearless," "bold" and "colorful," predicted that one of the slower numbers could turn out to be a hit.

"The ballads on this album are really special. I didn't want to just put a bunch of ballads on the album, I actually wanted to keep it minimal with slow records," she explained. "But there are really two powerful ballads. One is called 'Straight Up Beautiful' and the other one is called 'California King Bed' which is ... one of my favorite songs on the album. It's probably going to be the biggest song on the album. It's talking about being this close to someone yet feeling so far away, like falling out of love."

Rihanna said she often looks to her man for feedback on her music.

Riley upon landing in Guadeloupe, was welcomed with open arms by eager fans who wanted to catch a glimpse of the man who has whetted their musical appetites with a large arsenal of hits.

With a large crowd in attendance at the Lasaka, Riley riled up patrons with a show stopping one hour set. He also engaged his audience as he spoke to them at different intervals in their native French language.

stevie-face-singer-reggae.jpgIn recent times popular reggae crooner Stevie Face has showed his musical dominance by scoring hits both locally and abroad with several cover songs including Tell It Like It Is, In The Living Years, Wanna Wake Up With You and Since I Met You Baby.

While it is a known fact that for decades many Jamaican artistes including stalwarts such as Ken Booth, John Holt and Sanchez have successfully done cover versions, Stevie Face is not amused by the fact some industry insiders have decided to label him as a cover singer.

In a recent interview he stated that he is going to prove this notion wrong.
"A lot of people are calling me a cover singer but I am going to prove them wrong, I have hit before with original songs such as Teach The Children, Coming Home and I’m In Love. I am going to do it again with my latest single called Thank You for Loving Me," said the artiste.

Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber Race to 1 Billion YouTube Views

lady-gaga-justin-bieber-views-billion.jpg

Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber are both closing in on 1 billion all-time YouTube views, according to TubeMogul. If both artists continue at their current rate, Gaga will beat Bieber to the punch by reaching 1 billion views around October 20. Bieber is expected to reach the milestone around November 1.

Another video analytics group called Visible Measures reported that Gaga reached one billion across all video sites several months ago. The number is more inclusive in many ways. "Our analysis includes the original music videos, copies of those originals, and derivatives (spoofs, people dancing to the video, concerts, etc.) from over 200 video sites, not just YouTube," says Visibile Measures' Matt Fiorentino.

By that measure, Gaga's "Bad Romance" alone has more than 630 million views already. However, TubeMogul claims that no artist has yet achieved 1 billion views solely on YouTube. It's clear at this point that the milestone will go to either Gaga or Bieber, because the third-place competitor (Michael Jackson) is hanging back at 600 million views.
