Sigh


chris brown

Having recently left rehab after completing his court-ordered 90-day anger management treatment, Chris Brown’s focus is firmly back to music; just over the weekend he announced the release date (May 5) for his forthcoming X album and dropped a new track off his joint LP with Tyga, Fan of a Fan 2. But it appears Breezy is still caught up in some drama. Yesterday he accused his former manager Tina Davis of leaking music off his new album and refusing to return his back up hard drive.

Chris has since deleted the tweet, but later wrote, “Snakes in the grass….. Just stay positive.” Davis responded to his claims on Twitter by writing, “Trace it! Find out where it originated from… RCA can do that for you. Then send a defaming tweet out on who really did it.” She, too, deleted her tweet.

Tina Davis managed Chris Brown since the start of his career before parting ways earlier this year. Breezy is now represented by Def Jam VP of A&R, Bu Thiam.

schoolboy-q

In part two of his conversation with Hot 97′s Angie Martinez, ScHoolboy Q opens up on his well known addiction to Lean (Promethazine/Codeine Syrup). Q breaks down how his addiction to pills first started, which eventually lead into regular usage of Lean. He flashes back to an unforgettable moment at SXSW where he was unable to move, and reveals his sex life is so affected that he would choose syrup over a night with the hottest woman (in this case, actress Jennifer Lawrence).

After spending two years working on his upcoming Oxymoron album (Feb. 25), ScHoolboy Q feels the addiction has affected his music so much so that he sucks right now and refuses to do any features. Despite everything, Q says he’s in a happy place and will stop using syrup after his “Oxymoron” tour ends on June 1 to focus on the next album.

Bittersweet news for OutKast fans today. Despite the continual circulation of rumors and theories, the most vocal half of the duo, Big Boi, confirmed the news that none of us wanted to hear but we all knew was coming anyway: there is no new OutKast album in the works. “No, no, no. We’re just doing the tour only, just for the fans,” he told Revolt. “That’s all it is, just the tour.”

The good news, however, is that Fat Sax is working on new mixtape which he said could drop in the next few weeks. The project, inspired by the hit TV series Game of Thrones, will also feature appearances from Common, Wale and “a couple surprise guests.” Don’t forget, Big Boi is also working on his third solo album, due later this year.

andre 3000 father

What was supposed to be a jubilant year for André 3000 with OutKast finally reuniting has been hit with some tragic news: his father, Lawrence Walker, has passed away. A spokesperson for OutKast confirmed that André’s father passed away on Wednesday. Although details are scarce, Straight From the A reports that Walker died of an apparent heart attack after chopping wood for his fireplace outside his Atlanta home.

george zimmerman kanye west boxing match

I don’t even know where to start with this, but here’s what we know so far. Last week it was reported that George Zimmerman had agreed to a celebrity (the term “celebrity” being used very loosely) boxing match. The racist, child murdering piece of shit former security guard was offered money to fight from boxing promoter Damon Feldman and, needless to say, the line for potential opponents was longer than people camping out for the Air Jordan Gamma Blue 11s.

The Game (as in the 6’5″, 240lbs former Blood gang member) and DMX (no introduction necessary) have both come forward hoping to get in the ring (or “beat the living fuck out him,” as X put it). But according to TMZ, it’s Kanye West who Zimmerman wants to fight. Promoters tell TMZ he wants to fight Ye because he attacks not only paparazzi, but “defenseless people.”

Reason #712 George Zimmerman should be rotting in a cell right now.

Moments after debuting his “Confident” video, Justin Bieber turned himself in to Toronto police on Wednesday night. Justin’s charges are elated to a December incident. Screaming fans and media covered Toronto’s 52 Division station while waiting for Bieber’s arrival, who was charged with criminal assault after allegedly assaulting a limo driver. According to TMZ, Justin will be booked for assault, given a citation, and released on his own recognizance.

The news comes hours after the pop star Bieber pleaded not guilty in Florida to charges of driving under the influence, resisting arrest and driving with an expired license in Miami last week. There’s also an on going petition to have the Canadian star deported. The signatures are now passing the standard 100,000 signature mark and it now requires a response from the White House.
