Amber Rose Gets Chin Checked In Africa

Sometimes I feel bad for Amber Rose. She seems like she really wants to do the right thing, but the wrong things keep happening. She's got to get herself out of this one though. I'm with Africa! For example, she made a statement about Ghana and that there was no middle class. Well, somebody got out there computer and wrote Amber a lil' letter. Like to hear it? Here it go:

“Did I hear Amber Rose say there are no middle class people in Ghana? And it is either people are extremely rich or extremely poor? I am a living testimony and a true proof that, she is totally uninformed about Ghanaians.

I am not extremely rich and neither am I extremely poor to be living in gutters or dirt as she puts it. I am a middle class Ghanaian and my family has always been middle class. There are several middle class Ghanaians out there living comfortably and not in dirt.

It is absurd enough to bring Amber Rose to Ghana to headline a concert as the only decent credibility this chick carries around is ‘ex-girlfriend of Kanye West’. I therefore expected that she should at least be coached if she is dumb enough not to know that we have middle class Ghanaians.

Not only did Amber Rose parade her ignorance as far as the economic strata of Ghanaians/Africans are concerned, she also presented her view as if there are no poor people in America where she comes from. There are people out there in America living in far disgusting conditions than those she spotted in Ghana.

If someone like Amber Rose wants to comment on Ghana, the best is for her to be informed on what she is saying…And why does she think Ghana is entirely Africa? Gosh! Africa is a continent, Ghana is a country and she just visited Ghana, we have 53 countries in Africa.”

Amber shot back apologetically:

“People have to understand that this is my first time in Africa. This is not my culture. I have never been here so if I said anything to hurt anyone’s feelings then I am really, really sorry. I saw that a lot of people on twitter said ‘don’t just show the poverty, show the rich people’. But for me, the rich people aren’t doing anything for the little kids and the people that are living in poverty so I don’t want to go hang out with the rich people. I wanted to see the kids in poverty. I grew up very poor. So I wanted to go see them, help them, talk to them and inspire them to let them know they could possibly be somebody great. They can be somebody great. So I want everyone in Ghana to know that I wasn’t just saying that ‘Ghana is a poor country and no one should ever come here.’ Anyone that I have spoken to about Ghana since I have been here, I have been saying that it’s such an amazing place. And I’m sorry for not posting pictures of rich people, but it just wasn’t for me to do.”

I think everyone in the States, they have a perception of Africa that it is all dirt roads, people are extremely poor. What I’ve noticed about Africa, since I’ve been here is, that people are either extremely rich or extremely poor. There is no middle class at all.”

What I found funny is Amber was out in Africa giving girls advice on how not to be a stripper. LOL!!

“I went & spoke 2 young girls at an Islamic school in Ghana today about Girl Power education & not falling into the wrong lifestyle as I did as a young girl. I made a lot of mistakes in my life & they’ve come back to haunt me, but now I have the opportunity 2 talk to girls all over the world & to let them know that they should chose a better way & not follow in my footsteps. These girls are Awesome & it was a true blessing meeting them today they have inspired me! #InspireGirls #GirlPower :-) ”

Former Bad Boy Rapper G. Dep Loses Bid To Get Murder Charge Reduced

Former Bad Boy Records rapper G. Dep is facing a minimum of 15 years in prison, after prosecutors refused to downgrade a murder charge to manslaughter on Thursday (September 22nd).

The rapper entered a Manhattan police station last year and admitted to a 17-year-old shooting.

He was arrested after police reopened the cold case and learned that the victim, John Henkel, died from his gunshot wounds.

G. Dep., born Trevell Coleman, was hoping to have the charge reduced to manslaughter, since he confessed, as part of a 12-step drug rehab program.

According to the New York Post, G. Dep must either take the deal or face trial and a possible lengthier sentence for the shooting, which occurred during a robbery in 1993.

"His decision was made for all the right reasons," the lawyer reportedly said. "The DA should ask themselves whether they made their decision for the right reasons."

G. Dep has pleaded not guilty and will face trial in November if he does not accept the plea deal offered by prosecutors on Thursday.

Exclusive: Henchman Hires Gerald Shargel, Statement Issued; Machine Gun Charges Unveiled

Embattled Hip-Hop mogul James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond has been indicted for allegedly possessing a machine gun and a silencer.

The New York Post reports that assistant U.S. Attorney Todd Kaminsky unveiled the new charges yesterday (September 23rd) in court.

The machine gun and silencer was found in one of Rosemond's properties during raids conducted by the DEA, during the investigation into his $10,000,000 a year cocaine ring.

To defend himself from the cocaine and machine gun charges, Rosemond has retained the services of high-powered attorney Gerald Shargel.

In addition to representing John Gotti and Sammy "The Bull" Gravano, Gerald Shargel successfully defended Irv and Chris "Gotti" Lorenzo against money laundering charges, when the brothers were acquitted in December of 2005.

"This is my kind of case and it is my privilege to represent Jimmy," Gerald Shargel told, while remaining tightlipped about the defense strategy for obvious reasons.

Rosemond could be sentenced to up to 30 years in prison on the machine gun charges alone, while he is facing life in prison for allegedly running a continuous criminal enterprise.

Meanwhile, the New York Post reports that during a hearing yesterday, assistant U.S. Attorney Todd Kaminsky revealed more details into how Rosemond's drug operation managed to ship cocaine across the country, in shipping crates used to house musical equipment.

Members of the organization, including Rosemond's older brother Kesnar Rosemond, 50, would obtain the identities of people from loan applications that were submitted to an unnamed New York car dealership.

Accounts were then opened at FedEx and Rock–It Cargo, where millions of dollars in cocaine was sent to various recording studios in New York and Los Angeles, with the proceeds being sent to drop boxes on the West coast, in vacuum sealed bags with mustard, to throw off the scent of any dogs sniffing for currency.

Last week, Rock-It Cargo issued a statement denying any knowledge of the criminal enterprise's activities, while reassuring its customers that their shipments were secure.

Rosemond's brother Kesnar has already pleaded guilty to the charges of distributing cocaine and he is also accused of making side deals with various suppliers, without the knowledge of his younger brother.

At its height, Rosemond's company CZAR Entertainment handled the careers of artists like Game, Akon, Brandy, Sean Kingston, Wyclef, Mario Winans and others.

T.I. In The Studio With Pharrell Williams. Rapper's AkOO Clothing Line Blowing Up

T.I. is currently in an Atlanta halfway house wrapping up an 11-month sentence for violating his probation.

The rapper is allowed to work however, and has been knocking out tunes with Pharell Williams and Big K.R.I.T.

DJ Drama says the Grand Hustle CEO is working at a rapid pace.

"I was in there the other day, by the second day that I went in I had already heard like 13, 14 songs; new songs," Drama told XXL. "Pharrell came the other day when I was in there. He dropped off a couple new joints. He already sent something the day before. That was done.”

Tip is expected to drop a new song next week featuring Big K.R.I.T.

T.I.'s incarceration may have actually benefited one of his business ventures. A rep for his AKOO clothing line told TMZ that sales increased 25% while the rapper was away.

In addition to all the other things he's involved in, T.I. will be releasing a new fictional book titled Power & Beauty October 18. Check out the cover for it below.

Will Diddy And Jay-Z Be First Hip-Hop Billionaires? Not So, Says Birdman

In the high stakes battle for Hip Hop superiority, it appears that the two top money earners in the rap game – Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter and Sean "Diddy" Combs respectively – are in a quiet duel to become the first billionaires by way of their shared industry.

With various streams of revenue flowing for both savvy businessmen, some unrelated to music, the potential is vast for both men according to a recent analysis from Forbes magazine. However, another Hip Hop mogul believes he and his team will eclipse Jay-Z and Diddy in the money race all in due time.
CEO of Cash Money Records Brian “Birdman” Williams threw his and protégé Lil Wayne’s Young Money imprint names into the billionaire sweepstakes pot, defiantly stating that the YMCMB machine is well on its way to the top. “I think Young Money Cash Money would be the first billion-dollar brand in hip-hop,” said Birdman plainly in an email to Forbes referencing his label ventures. “We strong and growing every day as a brand and fast. Within the next few years we will be billionaires.”

According to Forbes numbers, Diddy is at the halfway mark with an estimated net worth of $500 million, much of that tied up in Diddy’s business ventures such as his Sean John and Enyce clothing lines along with his stake in Ciroc vodka. Jay-Z is right behind his rich pal with assets that include a lucrative $10 million dollar Live Nation deal, the 40/40 club chain, cosmetic company Carol’s Daughter and his partial ownership of the New Jersey (soon to be Brooklyn) Nets amongst other deals. Continuing the dollar tally, only Dr. Dre and 50 Cent are within range for the coveted billionaire status.
