FAN THROWS 50K IN YOUNG JEEZY’S VAN?

There’s a lot to be said about Young Jeezy. He is a “Drug Dealer”, a “Criminal”, or even just a “Rapper”. On the surface this may be the obvious image but once you crack the shell that all hardcore Rap artists have, you find the true intellect of a MAN who wants more then to be just another “Rapper”. As seen in the video above loyal fans shed tears over the words rang over the cds and in clubs that touch near to home. One fan even threw 50,000 dollars into Jeezy’s Tour Van to show gratitude for his lyrics that he felt. All this goes to show that with talent and the right passion you can change the world, if not the world at least one persons life.

HOW KOBE’S WIFE FOUND OUT ABOUT HIS ALLEGED CHEATING


Kobe Bryant has many people to blame for his wife Vanessa hearing about his alleged cheating. According to REPORTS, the basketball wives and girlfriends of Kobe’s Los Angeles Lakers teammates spilled the beans. As a result, Vanessa FILED FOR DIVORCE from Kobe, ending their 10-year marriage.

The teammates supposedly knew about some of his bad behavior, told their women, who went back to Vanessa with the details. BOSSIP.

BEYONCE’S PARENTS MATHEW AND TINA KNOWLES OFFICIALLY DIVORCE

The MARRIAGE of Beyonce‘s parents Tina and Mathew Knowles is officially over, now that their divorce is legally COMPLETE. REPORTS about Tina filing divorce surfaced two years ago, but then it was dropped last year after both Tina and Mathew failed to show up for court.

DID THE KNOWLES FAMILY MADE THIS CITY HOT?

Mathew got another woman pregnant during their marriage, and even though Tina never spoke about the scandal publicly, it probably was a big reason why they’re divorcing. Get more details at TMZ.

BARON DAVIS TO SIGN WITH KNICKS

According to sources at ESPN, former Cleveland Cavaliers guard BARON DAVIS will be signing with The New York Knicks. Davis was waved by the Cavaliers and was not claimed off of waivers by another team.

WHERE CAN HE HANG OUT IN NEW YORK?

The news is a mixed blessing. While the Knicks sorely need an experience point guard to go with their front court of AMARE STOUDEMIRE, Carmelo Anthony and the newly acquired Tyson Chandler, Davis has back issues that will have him sidelined for up to 8 weeks.

NICKI MINAJ “SUPER BASS” TOPS EW LIST

NEW MUSIC!!!! WILLOW SMITH FT. NICKI MINAJ “FIREBALL”




It’s been a year since Willow Smith had the world singing “Whip My Hair,” and now she’s dropped her third single “Fireball” featuring Nicki Minaj. Will this be a big DEAL like “Whip My Hair,” or come and go like her second single “21st Century Girl”?

MODEL JOURDAN DUNN SLAMS FASHION WEEK STYLISTS: “LEARN TO DO BLACK HAIR!”

Supermodel Jourdan Dunn sparked some controversy earlier this week when she TWEETED from Paris FASHION WEEK: “I swear some people need to learn how to do black hair/skin.”

She walked in two runway shows that day- Ungaro and Giambattista Valli – and likely encountered backstage a stylist who didn’t know how to DEAL with her hair texture and a makeup artist who didn’t know how to complement her skin tone and shade.

Though this isn’t the first time black models have slammed designers and casting agents for the lack of diversity on the runway, Dunn’s message certainly called out the other folks behind the scenes with her short and to-the-point message.

However, this could be a case of “the chicken and the egg.” Can black models really blame artists & stylists for not knowing how to tend to them if there aren’t that many to work with in the first place? Or is it the stylist’s responsibility to learn somehow, someway, regardless?

SAFAREE “SB:” “SHAMBALLA BALLS AROUND MY NECK, THAT’S MY NOOSE”


Nicki Minaj’s hype-man Safaree “SB” is more known for being the Head Barbz “right-hand” partner and alleged lover than for being a rapper. Being a huge Nicki fan, I was instantly inclined to click the “play” button when I saw that he released a single and better-yet, a video. Not one minute later I was picking my jaw up from the floor after watching SB pretend to hang himself with a diamond “Shamballa” necklace he called a noose.

This isn’t SB’s first set of statements that tickled me in places I couldn’t scratch. I was offended when he yelled a bunch of “nappy-headed” slurs in the background of Nicki Minaj’s “Did It On Em’.”

Oddly enough, the SONG isn’t half bad. I just wish it wasn’t half-baked with ignorant rap lines like “Shamballa balls around my neck, that’s my noose.”

EVELYN LOZADA SUES GOSSIP WEBSITE FOR CLAIMING SHE CHEATED ON CHAD

Evelyn Lozada is suing popular gossip website Media Takeout for publishing “defamatory” stories about her cheating on fiance Chad Ochocinco with his footballer friend Terrell Owens, according to COURTHOUSE NEWS SERVICE.

She filed papers in a Miami-Dade County Court over a story posted earlier this month with a headline that read: “Evelyn Lozada from the Basketball Wives was CREEPING … with one of Chad’s BALLER FRIENDS!!!’ (Explosive Details).” The site has not deleted the page, but has deleted the text and replaced it with “As a courtesy to Evelyn, we have removed this article.”

She also claims the website published a “follow-up” article that falsely stated she was “knocked up” and quitting the show “Basketball Wives.”

Considering the story was to have been read by over “250,000 people,” Lozada is suing for having suffered “reputational and professional damage, damage to her BUSINESS, and severe emotional distress.”

AFENI SHAKUR RESPONDS TO 2 PAC’S EXPLICIT TAPE: “GET THE LEGAL TEAM READY”


2 Pac’s Back! Well not really, but people WILL sure stop at nothing to see him back in action! Yesterday TMZ revealed photos from the sex tape being shopped around which shows Pac receiving fellatio while rapping. Afeni Shakur is not going to let that tape see the light of day without a fight! “Get the legal team ready because [we] will not allow someone to put it out” said Afeni.

A rep is also saying “the estate is trying to figure out who is marketing the tape by attempting to identify the individuals who appear on FILM, including the leading lady, believing one of them might be the culprit.”

IS “TRUE BLOOD” HOTTIE MEHCAD BROOKS DATING GEORGE CLOONEY’S EX?


“True Blood” hottie Mehcad Brooks was seen out and about with George Clooney’s ex girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis. According to TMZ, the couple were spotted having dinner at STK steakhouse in L.A, and after what seems like a DATE, they took off in Mehcad’s SUV.

Before Brooks and Elisabetta drove off together, the TMZ folks asked Mehcad:

“How did you guys meet?” He cracked a big, GUILTY smile … and joked, “We didn’t meet … I have no clue what you’re talking about.”

Mehcad was rumored to have dated model Selita Ebanks and most recently actress Serinda Swan.

RISING BLACK MODEL ROSE CORDERO PREGNANT AT 19


Rising model Rose Cordero is pregnant. At just 19, she’s already made a name for herself as the first solo black model to grace the COVER OF FRENCH VOGUE SINCE 2002, according to HUFFINGTON POST.

A photo posted on FACEBOOK showed the beauty on the beach with surrounding friends kissing her belly.

Many have began making comparisons to JOURDAN DUNN, another black supermodel who became pregnant at the same age. Dunn famously walked in a Jean Paul Gaultier runway show in 2009 with a belly at 7 months along. SEE A PIC!

Jourdan, however, has continued to have a soaring, successful CAREER. Here’s to hoping Cordero will do the same. Congrats on the blessing!

XXL FRESHMEN CLASS OF 2008: WHERE ARE THEY NOW?


Every year since 2008, XXL Magazine has released a “Freshmen Class” issue, which consists of new rappers who have the potential to be breakout artists. These MCs have created a buzz for themselves via the internet, social media or by simply staying consistent and dropping mixtapes left and right.

But where are they now? It’s one thing to predict the future, but almost four years later whose CAREER has panned out? TheUrbandaily takes a look back at XXL’s Freshmen Class of 2008 “Leaders Of The New School” to see who graduated, who dropped out and who might have failed.

Name: Lil’ Boosie

From: Baton Rouge, Louisiana,

Releases: Bad Azz (2006), Superbad: The Return of Boosie Bad Azz (2009) Incarcerated (2010)

Lil Boosie had a great start. His unique flow and voice had gained him enough attention to possibly be the next hottest rap artist coming out of the south. The first and only single off Bad Azz, “Zoom,” featured Yung Joc and helped Boosie grab the attention of hip hop fans. However, there was one small PROBLEM with Lil’ Boosie, he lived the troublesome life he rapped about. In 2010 he was sent to prison for violation of his probation. He did release his Incarcerated album from behind bars, but as you know jail can make or break a rap artist.

Name: Gorilla Zoe

From: Atlanta, GA.

Releases: Welcome To The Zoo (2007) Don’t Feed The Animals (2009), King Kong (2011).

Since the 2008 Freshman cover, Gorilla Zoe dropped his sophomore album Don’t Feed The Animals which hit #8 on the Billboard 200. In February of 2010 he dropped an entire mixtape for every day of the month. He is still signed with Bad Boy South and released his third album King Kong in July.

Name: Plies

From: Fort Myers. FL

Releases: The Real Testament (2007) Definition of Real(2008), Da REAList (2008), Goon Affiliated (2010).

Talk about blowing up straight out of the gate. Plies had great success with his debut album The Real Testament in 2007. Plies released not one but two albums in 2008, Definition Of Real & Tha REAList. Although Plies has started to cool off, his fans are still humming along to his hit “Bust It BABY Pt 2.” It’s sample of Janet Jackson’s “Come Back To Me” makes it a quiet storm staple for sensitive thugs everywhere.

Name: Crooked I

From: Long Beach, CALIFORNIA
Releases: Hood Star, Block Obama II EP, Mr. Pigface Weapon Waist EP, Planet C.O.B. Vol. 1 EP, Planet C.O.B. Vol. 2, Million Dollar Story EP.

Crooked I had seen his fair share of setbacks before appearing on the cover. From Virgin Records to Death Row and now with Shady as a member of SlaughterHouse. He formed super group Slaughterhouse with classmate Joell Ortiz, Joe Budden and Royce Da 5’9. Since appearing on the cover in 2008 Crooked I has taken his grind into over time. He is CEO of his own record labels, Dynasty Entertainment and C.O.B. Digital as well as Senior Vice President of Treacherous Records. In 2020 he released the album Hood Star which is a compilation of unreleased MUSIC while at Death Row.

Name: Rich Boy

From: Mobile, Alabama

Releases: (mixtapes) Bigger Than The Mayor (2008) Kool-Aid, Kush & Convertibles (2009) 12 Diamonds (2011)

It’s hard to you go wrong when Polow The Don and Keri Hilson are members of your camp. However, Rich Boy has not been able to top the charts since releasing “Throw Some Ds.” He released a few mixtapes since and plans to release his second album Ressurected In Diamonds soon.

Name: Saigon

From: Brownsville, Brooklyn

Releases: All In A Days Work, Warning Shots

You would think with a co-sign from Jay-Z, Kanye West and Kool G Rap he would have stepped into the rap game with no problems. Nevertheless, Saigon publicly battled Atlantic Records over the release of The Greatest Story Ever Told. While in label limbo he released two mixtapes Warning Shots and All In A Days Work. After years of fighting to be released from Atlantic with the material, Saigon finally got what he asked for and with the help of Just Blaze and MTV’s Sway he finally released The Greatest Story Ever Told in 2011.

Name: Lupe Fiasco

From: Chicago, Il

Releases: Lupe Fiasco’s Food & Liquor (2006) Lupe Fiasco’s The Cool (2007) Lasers (2011)

Before appearing on the cover, Lupe released his debut The Cool which is certified gold. He later publicly battled Atlantic Records to release the Lasers album which caused fans to sign petitions and protest outside of the Atlantic records office. As a result, Lasers was finally released in March of 2011. The album debuted on the Billboard 200 at #1 with 204,200 copies sold, the highest of Lupe’s career. He is currently working on the followup Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album.

Name: Young Dro

From: Atlanta, GA

Releases: Mixtapes- I Co-Sign Myself (Hosted by Himself as DJ Dro), Drocabulary (Hosted by DJ Smallz).

Young Dro has not released an album since appearing on the cover but he has been keeping busy. He has plans to release his P.O.L.O album soon along with a joint mixtape with Vado. He has not released any chart topping hits since appearing on the cover. But being signed to T.I.’s Grand Hustle we’re sure Young Dro will be coming back better than ever.

Name: Joell Ortiz

From: Brooklyn, NY.

Releases: The Brick: Bodega Chronicles (2007)Free Agent(2011),

When Joell Ortiz appeared on the cover he was signed to Dr. Dre’s Aftermath label, but shortly after he asked to be released from his contract. He and classmate Crooked I formed the group Slaughterhouse with Joe Budden and Royce Da 5’9 in 2009. The group released a self-titled album the same year. Joell dropped Free Agent on E1 formerly known as Koch and then landed a solo deal with SRC in 2010. Slaughterhouse announced their deal with Shady Records in February of this year.

Name: Papoose

From: Brooklyn, NY

Releases: (mixtapes) Build or Destroy, 21 Gun Salute, Military Grind, Papoose Season, The 2nd Coming, King Of New York

OKAY SO MICHAEL VICK IS NOW A 100 MILLION DOLLAR MAN!


Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles agreed Monday to a six-year contract that again makes the Pro Bowl quarterback one of the NFL’s highest-paid players. NFL Network’s Michael Lombardi reported the contract is worth $100 million, according to a league source, and NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora also cited a league source in reporting that $36 million of the total amount is guaranteed.

Vick has come a long way since SPENDING 18 months in federal prison on dogfighting charges. He led the Eagles to the NFC East title last season, was the starting quarterback in the Pro Bowl and was the Associated Press’ NFL Comeback Player of the Year.

“I’m very happy we were able to reach an agreement with Michael on this long-term contract,” Eagles coach Andy Reid said in a statement released by the team. “It’s a product of all the hard work Michael has done to better himself over the last couple of years, both on and off the field. I’m very proud that he has been able to achieve success again in this league, but he’ll be the first one to tell you that there is a lot of work yet to be done by him and this team as a whole.
“And there’s no doubt in my mind that he will continue on that path.”
Reid and Vick are scheduled to meet the media at 2:30 p.m. ET on Tuesday to discuss the deal

LIL MAMA “SCRAWBERRY” [NEW VIDEO]

It looks like Lil Mama listened to Charlamagne when he told her to put out good music and let it speak for itself…well partially listened (it isn’t really that good). Mama sounds like she’s still in the 80′s rapping over Special Ed’s “I Got It made” beat.

Please don’t ask why she spelled strawberry like that…




Lil Mama pays homage to one of her role models, the legendary MC Lyte, with this song "Scrawberry" which samples Special Ed's "I Got It Made" and is directed by Phil Lee.

WOMAN PAYS $180 FOR FAKE IPAD IN MCDONALD’S PARKING LOT

Our thirst for the Apple iPad is WELL DOCUMENTED HERE AT THEURBANDAILY, but that should never be an excuse to abandon common sense. According to PCMAG.COM (via TheSmokingGun) a South Carolina woman was tricked into buying a piece of wood decorated to look like an iPad. You can’t make this stuff up.

Ashley McDowell, 22, of Spartanburg, South Carolina, filed an incident report on Monday night with the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office (hat tip: THE SMOKING GUN). She claims two black men approached her in a McDonald’s parking lot selling iPads for $300 a pop.
Thinking that this was the deal of a lifetime McDowell haggled the men down to $180 and they handed her a Fedex box from the trunk of their white Impala. After she sped off thinking she was about to play “Angry Birds” on her new iPad, she opened the box to find this:


The con artists covered a piece of a wood with a screenshot of an actual iPad and an Apple logo. Needless to say she was not laughing. McDowell contacted local authorities who dusted it for finger prints and took the above photo. If the men are caught they could face up to 90 days in jail and a $1000 fine. I think the $180 is her Idiot tax for thinking she could BUY an iPad in a McDonald’s parking lot out the back of an Impala.

STACEY DASH OFFICIALLY LEAVES SINGLE LADIES!!! (STATEMENT)


Earlier this year, the beautiful and ageless actress Stacey Dash made her debut returning to TV starring in the VH1 sitcom “Single Ladies.” After a successful first season, there were speculations and rumors floating around that Stacey would not be returning to the hit series, however, today it has been confirmed that the rumors are true. Stacey released a statement to Global Grind explaining the reason behind her departure.

“I truly enjoyed playing Val on ‘Single Ladies’, but I have decided to leave the show. I have to be back in L.A. with my children right now and the ‘Single Ladies’ shooting location makes that impossible. I wish VH1 the best of luck with the show and in maintaining the strong fan base we developed in season one.”

VH1 responded to Stacey’s decision to leave with a statement of their own:

“VH1 respects Stacey’s decision and her commitment to what she feels is best for her family. We thank her for all of her hard work in making ‘Single Ladies’ a success right out of the gate, and we wish her nothing but the best in her future plans.”

so who will replace her?

Vivica? Gabby Union? I dont like neither choices to pull off “Val” but Sanaa Lathan would be a great choice if Halle cant be talked into it LOL!!!! wishful thinking I guess!!
We shall see, but how disappointing is this NEWS??

OK WE HAVE A PROBLEM…RHIANNA IS LEAVING JAY Z!!

Call it a coincidence or call it revenge or hell, just call it close…According to Media Take Out Rhianna is leaving Jay Z and his Roc Nation management team. This comes as soon as Beyonce announced that she was pregnant last week. Do you think that this is related? I Say Hell Yes..Plus I got some friends that are part of the camp and knows the BUSINESS.

According to the lawsuit, Which is summarized on TMZ, Rihanna claims that Jay’s sister DEFRAUDED her. Stay Tuned, I know this is going to get Nasty!

LIL’ WAYNE DISSES JAY-Z ON “IT’S GOOD” FT. DRAKE & JADAKISS [NEW MUSIC]

Lil’ Wayne takes a shot at the throne dissin Jay-Z on the latest Tha Carter IV leak “It’s Good” featuring Drake and Jadakiss. Once again its on!

According to hip hop fans, Jay-Z started throwing jabs with his verse on “H*A*M” stating, “I’m like really half a billi nigga/ really you got baby MONEY/ Keep it real with niggas, Niggas aint got my lady money.” Now Lil’ Wayne sent a shot at the throne.

“Talkin’ bout Baby money, I got your Baby money. Kidnap your b*tch, keep that, how much you love your lady money?, I know you fake ni**a, press your brakes ni**a, I’ll take you out, that’s a date, ni**a.”


Game Talks Discovering Rap Through "Beat Street", X-Box 360, and His Vision for "The R.E.D. Album"

Game only gets tougher as he keeps going.

As evidenced by his new masterpiece, The R.E.D. Album [available now], the West Coast's finest MC takes his own style and hip hop to a new level every time he gets behind the mic.

Game isn't afraid to go outside the box. In fact, he often burns it down completely on cuts like, "Martians Vs. Goblins" [Featuring Tyler, the Creator and Lil Wayne]. He also knows how to write a hit though. Just check out the heavenly and hypnotic hook on "Pot of Gold" [Featuring Chris Brown]. The best moments are when he's spitting straight from his gut though. You can practically feel the heat of Compton on "The City", and Game is one of the few rappers that can muster that much intensity in the space of a little more than five minutes.

Game has a hell of a story, and ARTISTdirect.com editor and Dolor author Rick Florino sat down with him for a deep, detailed exclusive interview. Game talks about how he found hip hop [you're going to be surprised], why he loves X-Box 360, and his overarching vision for The R.E.D. Album. He's got a lot of knowledge, and you'll learn a thing or two in this incredible interview below.

NBA: Scottie Pippen Wins $2.37 Million Judgment


Former NBA basketball star Scottie Pippen has won a $2.37 million judgment against a Miami businessman, Craig Frost, and a Miami company, CF Air.

Pippen, who has a home in Fort Lauderdale, and his wife, Larsa Pippen, filed suit against Frost in 2007 regarding Pippen’s disastrous ownership of his own airplane through a company called Air Pip. Advertisement



The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that Air Pip had fallen apart in 2004, and Pippen lost a related $5 million judgment in Missouri to U.S. BankbizWatch . Pippen lost a further appeal of that judgment in 2007.

Pippen tried to argue that he was a victim of a conspiracy by those he trusted to put together the airplane deal.

PowerInbox Revolutionizing E-mail So You Never Have To Leave Your Inbox

New e-mail platform brings apps to e-mail in the same way iPhone brought apps to your phone

 

If the iPhone brought apps to your phone, the newly launched browser extension PowerInbox wants to be the iPhone for your inbox. The goal? To become the future of e-mail.

Currently the platform has three apps that make checking e-mail more productive and interactive: Facebook, Twitter and Groupon.

Here's how it works: Let's say you receive an e-mail notification from Facebook that says someone wrote on your wall. Instead of the e-mail merely linking you to the site so you can interact there, the Facebook "PowerApp" allows you to not only view the post but also see comments and write your own. Similarly, you can watch videos and see photos posted on Facebook from your inbox.

The Twitter app lets you see recent tweets, reply and follow people. When you open a Groupon e-mail, you can see a live countdown of the deal and whether it's been tipped.

PowerInbox plans to bring many more apps like LivingSocial, DropBox and LinkedIn. They're encouraging developers to make their own and asking users to choose which apps they'd like to see next.

In a nutshell, they're revolutionizing the e-mail experience so you never have to leave your inbox.

Abercrombie to pay 'Jersey Shore' cast to stop wearing its clothes


Clothing retailer Abercrombie & Fitch said it would offer "substantial payment" to MTV's The Jersey Shore's cast members to stop wearing the brand on air.

Mike “the Situation“ Sorrentino may have to find some new attire for his “gym, tan, laundry“ routine.

“We are deeply concerned that Mr. Sorrentino's association with our brand could cause significant damage to our image. We understand that the show is for entertainment purposes, but believe this association is contrary to the aspirational nature of our brand, and may be distressing to many of our fans,“ an Abercrombie & Fitch spokesperson said in a statement. "We have also extended this offer to other members of the cast, and are urgently waiting a response."

The reality show, currently in its fourth season, features hard-partying and hookups in locations ranging from the show's origin, the Jersey Shore to the current season in Florence, Italy.

The castmates have coined terms like "grenade" -- to refer to an unattractive woman -- and has come under fire for their liberal usage of words like "Guido" and "Guidette," which many have argued as adhering to Italian-American stereotypes.

Abercrombie & Fitch is also no stranger to controversy. The all-American retailer has come under fire in the past for a range of topics ranging from negative stereotyping to sexually explicit material and employment practices.

The retailer's stock fell 5 percent in midday trading despite its quarterly earnings, revealed on Wednesday, which beat expectations.

The company reported a net sales increase of 23 percent in the quarter ended July 30, to $917 million. Even more dramatically, it reported a 64 percent surge in net profit to $32 million, or earnings of 35 cents per share.

America's Next Top Model

Lending their expertise as guest judges during this high-fashion cycle are international fashion designer Lana Marks, model/stylist Erin Wasson, stylist Rachel Zoe, Sudanese model and actress Alek Wek, stylist/creative consultant Lori Goldstein, Italian photographer Francesco Carrozzini, fashion model Sonia Dara, IMG Models executive Ivan Bart, Vogue Italia editor-in-chief Franca Sozzani, Brazilian designer Daniella Issa Helayel, and costume designer/stylist Eric Daman (Gossip Girl).




Fourteen model hopefuls will compete for the ultimate career-launching prize package: a contract with IMG Models, one of the top international modeling management companies in the world; a fashion spread in Vogue Italia and an additional spread and cover of Beauty in Vogue; and a $100,000 contract with CoverGirl Cosmetics.

Tyra Banks leads the panel of judges, comprised of influential fashion editor André Leon Talley and photographer Nigel Barker.

Jackie Chan: Still not dead, no thanks to Facebook

If Social Media could kill, celebrities would be in big, big trouble. Seriously, Facebook -- stop trying to kill off Jackie Chan!

The action star is the victim of yet another internet death hoax. A Facebook group with over 50,000 members is titled "R.I.P. Jackie Chan," and claims that the actor died on August 17, 2011. Well, rest assured... he didn't.




It's not Chan's first time on the social networking chopping block. In March, he was forced to reassure fans via his official website when Twitter rumors of his death in a snowboarding accident and/or heart attack and/or fall off a cliff ran rampant. "Jackie Chan is alive and well. He did not suffer a heart attack and die, as was reported on many social networking sites and in online news reports," the message said.

Luckily, this isn't one of those "If you die in the game, you die in real life!" situations.


Texas smoke shops prepare for enforcement of K2 ban

DALLAS, TX— Adam Rivera can quickly tell you which small packages inside the smoke shop he manages in Bedford are the hot sellers.

"We sell a lot of this product," Rivera, who operates The Dragon's Breath, said.

Rivera says the botanical incense sold under various names is sold only to adults and only for proper use and makes up more than half of sales on some days. But, soon the product that can mimic the high of marijuana if smoked will be illegal in Texas.

"To see this ban is just sad because it will really hamper our profits."

Smoke shops across Texas are bracing for what lawmakers call the "K2" ban, outlawing herbal products sold under various names. Beginning in September, it will be illegal to manufacture, distribute or possess what some call synthetic marijuana.

Fort Worth State Senator, Wendy Davis co-authored the legislation and says it gives police departments the tool they need to get a dangerous drug off the streets.

"If it does come to their attention, they can make an arrest if they want to.'"

The federal government, under the DEA took action last year to outlaw K2, but distributors tweaked formulas and names that helped keep the product legal. Some say the statewide ban will curtail use.

 


"My hope is that it will be less accessible and if you can't find it then that might be a deterrent," Debbie Meripolski, with The Council on Alcohol and Drug Abuse, said

But, Rivera isn't so sure. He believes the ban may only chase the use, underground.

"History has shown that by prohibiting use, the wrong people start selling it."

Cigarette makers sue FDA over new labeling rules


NEW YORK (Reuters) - Four big cigarette makers sued the Food and Drug Administration, seeking to void as unconstitutional new graphic labels and advertising that warn consumers about the risks of smoking and induce them to quit.

The lawsuit by Reynolds American Inc's R.J. Reynolds unit, Lorillard Inc, Liggett Group LLC and Commonwealth Brands Inc, owned by Britain's Imperial Tobacco Group Plc, said the warnings required no later than September 22, 2012 would force cigarette makers to "engage in anti-smoking advocacy" on the government's behalf.

Tips on quitting smoking for good

They said this violates their free speech rights under the First Amendment, according to a complaint filed Tuesday with the U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C.

"The notion that the government can require those who manufacture a lawful product to emblazon half of its package with pictures and words admittedly drafted to persuade the public not to purchase that product cannot withstand constitutional scrutiny," said Floyd Abrams, a prominent First Amendment specialist representing the cigarette makers, in a statement.

An FDA spokeswoman declined to comment, citing an agency policy not to discuss pending litigation.

The 2009 Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act requires color warnings covering the top half of the front and back panels of cigarette packages, and the top 20 percent of printed advertising.

Dead bodies, diseased lungs and rotting teeth are among the images expected to appear, in the first change to U.S. cigarette warnings in 25 years.

Reynolds' brands include Camel, Winston and Kool; Lorillard brands include Newport and True; Commonwealth brands include Davidoff, and Liggett brands include Eve.

KNOWING THE RISKS

The cigarette companies are the largest in the United States other than Altria Group Inc, whose brands include Marlboro and which is not part of the case. Altria had previously supported the 2009 law.

"Certain provisions of the final rule raise constitutional concerns," Altria spokesman Bill Phelps said. "We continue to work constructively with the FDA, and reserve our rights and options to protect the company."

A smaller cigarette maker, Santa Fe Natural Tobacco Co, is also a plaintiff in the lawsuit, which also seeks to delay enforcement of other parts of the tobacco law.

Kathleen Sebelius, Secretary of the Department of Health & Human Services, in June said the new warnings would ensure that "every person who picks up a pack of cigarettes is going to know exactly what risks they are taking."

She said the goal was to stop children from starting to smoke, and to give adult smokers a new incentive to quit.

"MINI-BILLBOARD"

But in their complaint, the cigarette companies said the labels illegally force them to make consumers "depressed, discouraged and afraid" to buy cigarettes, and turn each package into a "mini-billboard" for the government.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 46 million U.S. adults, or 20.6 percent, smoke cigarettes, but there has been little change in the percentage since 2004.

More than 221,000 Americans are expected to be diagnosed with lung cancer in 2011, according to the American Cancer Society. Tobacco is expected to kill nearly 6 million people worldwide in 2011, including 600,000 nonsmokers, the World Health Organization said in May.

The case is R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co et al v. FDA, U.S. District Court, District of Columbia, No. 11-01482.

Convicted Craigslist killer tells court, 'kiss my a**'

SEATTLE—
The trial of Clabon Berniard, a suspect in the Craigslist murder, was interrupted Tuesday when his alleged accomplice, convicted killer Kiyoshi Higashi, refused to testify.

Berniard is the fourth person to be tried in the April 2010 murder of Jim Sanders. Sanders was killed in hisEdgewood home.

Higashi, the gunman convicted in the murder and sentenced to 124 years, had agreed last week to testify against Berniard.

After special preparations were made to transport Higashi to the courthouse, he took the stand Tuesday morning.

When the court asked Higashi if he was ready to begin his testimony he replied, "I just came here to waste yall’s time. I came here to tell you to kiss my ass."

Higashi's refusal to testify forced the judge to dismiss the jurors and stop the trial for the rest of the day.

In addition to Higashi, Berniard’s two other alleged accomplices, Amanda Knight and Joshua Reese, have been convicted and sentenced to 71 and 100 years in prison, respectively.

Prosecutors contend the four individuals knocked on Sanders' door, claiming to be interested in a ring Sanders had listed for sale on Craigslist.

When Sanders let the suspects inside, police said they Zip Tied the entire family and then shot and killed Sanders.

Berniard's trial is expected to resume Wednesday.

 

Double Decker Walmart Opens in NE Dallas

DALLAS, Texas —
You probably haven’t shopped in a Walmart like this before.

"It’s a double decker concept," says Manager Jerrad Boyles.




Walmart is on the top floor, Sam's Club is on the bottom floor and includes a three-level parking garage.

With a ribbon cutting that brought out the Mayor of Dallas, the new store in Northeast Dallas is open to the public. But only half of the store is open. Sam's Club will open next month.

In addition to this being a brand new concept store, this Walmart brought in 300 new jobs. Many of the employees live in the area.

"I would say at least 95%, if not more, live within a two-mile radius of our store," said Boyles.

And for many, landing a job was just what they needed in this tough economy.

"I had been out of work for like two and-a-half years," said Dianne Carrington.

So why go double decker? The company’s first reason is convenience. Everybody seems to loves the one-stop shopping concept. Also..

"This double decker really maximizes the amount of land that we’re using," said Daniel Morales of Walmart.

This saves money for the company and makes the customers happy.

"I’m a shopaholic. Especially at Walmart. This is going to be my new home," said Jessica Williams Bustamante.

As for the two-store trend, expect at least five more of these stores in the Metroplex.

"We believe it’s going to be a huge success," said Boyles.

The feature that got a lot of attention was the store's escalator for shopping carts.

"We have a pully system where we can bring carts down from Walmart down to the garage level," said Morales.

Traffic was steady this morning but with back to school and tax free weekend coming up, this double decker will likely get decked out with customers.

TSA Screeners Now Patting Black Women’s Hair?




It’s well known, especially around these parts, that hair can be a sensitive issue for Black women. Entire movies have been made about it, and countless articles have been written examining it. Just recently, CNN even highlighted the annoying phenomenon of strangers reaching out to touch African-American women’s hair (a phenomenon, I might add, that impacts lots of people of color in the United States, regardless of gender). Now, a new development in the world of air safety is sure to rile the already difficult and deep dialogue.

According to a new story in the New York Times, an increasing number of African-American women are having to suffer the indignity of “hair pat-downs” when traveling via plane. In his piece, “With Hair Pat-Downs, Complaints of Racial Bias,” Joe Sharkey says he’s heard of two recent incidents in which Transportation Security Administration workers asked to feel through Black womens’ hair after they’d already gone through normal security procedures. In both cases the women said they passed through metal detectors without issue, and that despite that fact they were still required to allow TSA screeners to rub their heads.

“Is it just African-American women with natural hair who get the hair search?” one woman asked. The TSA agent told her that race wasn’t a factor but that if “you have certain kinds of ponytail or bun, you have to get your hair patted.”

As you might imagine, the TSA denies ordering its workers to single-out Black women for hair pat-downs. But it’s obvious that racial profiling will be at play if screeners’ only directive is to look at “certain kinds” of hair. Screeners need proper training that will prepare them to choose between a possible terrorist suspect and an African-American woman with natural hair, especially since the natural hair trend is only getting bigger (no pun intended). If not, there’s going to be yet another sick bit of societal pressure compelling Black women to run away from their natural hair in favor of straight, simple, Eurocentric styles.

Walmart Looks More Likely in Southeastern San Diego


Photo by Sam Hodgson
The Jacobs Center for Neighborhood Innovation, a large nonprofit in southeastern San Diego, is in discussions to bring a Walmart to these eight acres on Market Street.

Residents of southeastern San Diego will likely have a new neighbor soon: Walmart.
A major nonprofit that owns large swaths of land in the area is close to an agreement that would bring the company's first store there, to a vacant parcel the nonprofit owns on Market Street near 47th Street.
A new Walmart would be one of the largest private retail investments the surrounding low income neighborhoods have seen in decades.
Chip Buttner, president of development for the nonprofit Jacobs Center for Neighborhood Innovation, said the decision is not yet final, but the center has convened a team of staff and community members to discuss terms, conditions and other benefits they could seek from the company in exchange for the right to develop there.
The nonprofit is working on an agreement that would name Walmart as the nonprofit's preferred choice to develop the sloping eight-acre parcel across the street from its headquarters. It could be done in the next month or so. The company requested that agreement before moving forward with a more specific development proposal, Buttner said.
Discussions have been ongoing for several months, since the nonprofit said it had attracted interest from both Walmart and Target to build a store on the parcel. It recently settled on Walmart as its preference for the site.
The Jacobs Center has been buying up property for a decade in southeastern San Diego's lower income Diamond neighborhoods, which have long suffered a dearth of retail options. The center owns roughly 60 acres, many of them drab vacant lots near the intersection of Euclid Avenue and Market Street that it plans to develop into affordable housing, stores, and restaurants. A new Walgreens is also planned nearby.
Buttner said it was still too early to speculate on a timeline for a new Walmart's arrival, assuming the nonprofit makes a final decision to turn its land over for the company to develop.
"It could be two or three years," he said.

Kendrick Lamar Speaks With Snoop Dogg About Dr. Dre, Peers & Future Of Rap

Kendrick Lamar visits Snoop Dogg's Double G News Network to speak about what he feels new artists from Los Angeles are doing to preserve the legacy left behind by veterans.




With the recent release of Section.80, Kendrick Lamar has garnered more attention for his work. The buzz for the Compton, California emcee has grown considerably and co-signs have now been made, with significant stamps of approval coming from the likes of Snoop Dogg and another Compton representative, Dr. Dre. Recently, Snoop Dogg interviewed Kendrick Lamar on GGN (The Double G News Network) about the state of Rap and his relationship with Dr. Dre.

When asked about the state of the game, Kendrick Lamar spoke about his hopes to bring Los Angeles Rap back to the forefront, where he says he saw Snoop Dogg and others take it in earlier years.

"I think it's up to the new generation to put it to the perspective how y'all had it," he told Snoop. "I like where it's going. You have me, myself, Dom Kennedy, Nipsey Hussle [and] Jay Rock. It's getting back to a real G era where we're doing what we want to do and we're not going to do what the industry do. I like where it's at, as far as L.A."

Snoop followed this up be inquiring about unity among these rappers, noting that it's important to build on this unity and support. He then shared advice to Lamar, while also giving his blessing and telling him that the veterans are "through with it and don't know what to do with it."

"That's the thing this thing was built on. It was built on peace, love and harmony and once y'all understand that, y'all gon' go forever, man. Y'all gon' run with it because it's y'alls to play with. You know, we through with it and don't know what to do with it. We just sitting back, you know, watching, because we still know how to play. We know how to shoot and assist y'all. But, you know, it's really for y'all to make a new thing out of it and keep it fresh and fly. But, you know you have my blessing."

During the rest of the interview, Kendrick Lamar shared that Paul Rosenberg introduced him to Dr. Dre, who heard his track "Ignorance is Bliss" and was interested in his work. From there, he says, a relationship grew based on more than just music. The rest of the interview can be seen below.



Check out episode 2 of GGN's second season featuring Nemo Hoes and special guest Kendrick Lamar.

Rapper Jim Jones Speaks On Dipset Movie, "Fly Boy” Album With Cam'ron




In an interview with Invasion Radio, Jim Jones shares the details of the Dipset movie and speaks on new music from the crew.

According to rapper Jim Jones, the Harlem-based crew Dipset has quite a few interesting projects that are currently in the works. During his interview on DJ Green Lantern’s Invasion Radio the rapper revealed that there’s a Dipset movie being worked on as well as an album with himself and Cam’ron.

Still in its initial stages Jones explained that they’re still in the process of gathering material for the Dipset movie.

“The movie’s gonna be good…The process is everybody writing down the most memorable moments inside of Diplomat history both the good and the bad. And how we manage to be in the midst of a transition in a period of time where young black kids like us was synonymous for hustling and making money,” Jones explained. “And we got a chance to go into music at a very young age and treat that like we was hustling so it was a little bit crazy to be honest. It’s hard to have one foot in and one foot out and learn that. This is a bigger business than the streets.”

Jones later went on to compare the Dipset movie to that of an action-flick.

“It’s like an action-flick man. It’s so many things we go through…It’s just a lot. We blessed to still be here and dodging a lot of things,” said the rapper. “It feels good every day to wake up and know that I don’t have to want for nothing.”

As far as the albums are concerned according to Jones the Diplomat album will be preceded by an album featuring both himself and Cam’ron.

“It’s a grinding process. I think me and Killa’s Fly Boy album will come out right before the Diplomat album. It’s an album that we set out to do years ago when we first started the Diplomat movement and we was setting up the different albums that we were doing under Diplomat Records,” said Jones in regards to the Fly Boy album.

Will Smith Currently Working On A Comeback Album

The Fresh Prince is putting Hollywood on hold to revive his once thriving music career.

With his last studio album Lost and Found dropping in 2005, Will Smith is ready to pick back up the mic. According to 1500 or Nothin’s Mars, the Fresh Prince is currently at work on his comeback album, which he mentioned while running down a list of his production team’s upcoming projects.




“We’re working on Tip, we’re working on the High School movie with Snoop and Wiz Khalifa. We’re working on Will Smith, bringing him back,” Mars told XXLMag.com. “That’s actually him on the other line right now. Snoop’s daughter, we just put out her first single. We’re doing the whole album. Mario wants me to do a mixtape with him, we’re working on that. I’m working on Ashanti. We’re just working on as much as possible.”

As a solo artist, Smith released four albums, beginning with his nine-times-platinum 1997 debut Big Willie Style. Willenium followed in 1999, crossing the double-platinum threshold, while Born to Reign only achieved gold certification following its 2002 release. Lost and Found, also certified gold, was released in 2005.

Chargers Vs Cowboys

The Chargers likely will contend with triple-digit temperatures in Dallas, where they’ll practice Thursday through Saturday and kick off against the Cowboys at 7 p.m. CT Sunday.
SAN DIEGO – Questions about the weather in Dallas are based on more than hyperbole or the perception of spoiled San Diegans this week.

Mired in a record-setting hot summer and in what Texas state climatologist John Nielsen-Gammon deemed the worst one-year drought in its history, Dallas will feel like an oven for the Chargers, who practice outside Thursday before holding merciful sessions indoors Friday and Saturday.

“In a football uniform, it’s been a while (since I’ve experienced that),” Rivers said. “We obviously don’t have the heat out here, but the one thing we do is practice at a high tempo and a high level. I expect us to be able to handle it much like if you had to go East for a game early in the year.”

A thunderstorm last week prevented the city from tying a 31-year-old record for most consecutive days of triple-digit temperatures. Dallas reached 100 degrees for 40 consecutive days.

The city has started a new streak since. The National Weather Service forecast calls for highs of 106, 105, 104 and 102 degrees Thursday through Sunday. Temperatures are not expected to dip below 80 while the Chargers are in Dallas.

“It’ll be a changeup for us and certainly an added dimension, but we should be alright for a few hours,” Rivers said.




RETURNING HOME: Head Coach Norv Turner and receiver Patrick Crayton will enjoy a homecoming of sorts this week.

Each spent significant portions of their careers in Dallas. Turner won back-to-back Super Bowls with the Cowboys as offensive coordinator in ’92 and ’93, helping Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith and Michael Irvin flourish.

Crayton played the first 82 of his career for the Cowboys, catching 50 passes for nearly 700 yards and seven touchdowns in ’07, his best season.

“I’m looking forward to getting back home and competing against some guys I used to play with,” Crayton said.

Dallas Head Coach Jason Garrett was Crayton’s offensive coordinator. Rob Ryan is now defensive coordinator, so Crayton doesn’t believe he’ll be able to gauge how well the Chargers’ offense is doing by comparing practice results during the next few days to his time in Dallas, though a lot of the defensive personnel remain the same.

“Tendencies may be there, but they’ll be in different spots,” Crayton said.
