Rapper TI Alzheimers

Even though he’s currently serving time in jail, T.I. found a way to give back and used his power to sponsor a bus trip for 46 family members of 14 fellow inmates to visit the prison. Friends and families joined the “To See a Love One” bus trip in Atlanta and Alabama on Saturday for a two-day visit at the Forrest City Correctional Facility in Forrest City, Arkansas yesterday and today.

“I’ve been blessed to receive tons and tons of mail from my fans, family and friends, as well as get visits on a regular basis. Unfortunately some guys aren’t as fortunate.” There are a lot of good dudes in here that haven’t been able to see there loved ones in years. Their families can’t afford the trip so I wanted to help out.”

Sean Kingston is in a Miami hospital’s trauma unit following a bad jet skiing accident this evening, around 6pm. Local10.com reports that the pop star along with a female passenger were riding on a jet ski when it crashed into a bridge. The Miami Fire Dept. responded to the scene and  both Kingston and a female passenger were taken to nearby Jackson Memorial Hospital. (source: TMZ)

MissInfo: I’m friends with some of Sean’s very close-knit team so I know how worried and upset they are right now : ( Definitely wishing him a speedy recovery and I’m sure his friends, family and fans are praying for him too.

Update: I keep getting tweets from people saying that they’re hearing Sean Kingston has passed away. That is not true as of 12:44 am Monday. If anything changes for the worse, I will post an update. But until then, please correct anyone that tries to tell you differently.

Update 2: Sean’s stylist Tiffany Hasbourne (aka TiffTheStylist) says Sean’s condition has been upgraded to stable.

Even though Self Made Vol. 1 is in-stores now, Wale’s not relaxing one bit as he (along with The Board Administration) release the David Banks-directed video for “The Cloud” that features Tiara Thomas. If you remember the cut appeared on Wale’s 2010 More About Nothing mixtape.

Over the weekend, family, friends and fans gathered at the Faithful Central Bible Church in Inglewood, California to pay respects to Mante “M-Bone” Talbert of Cali Swag District.

Before 2010 it was pretty much a long shot getting these two on a track together (other than their ’04 collab “Fall Back”).
