T.I. Salutes Eminem for Helping and Supporting Him

T.I. and Eminem share a connection that goes beyond respect for each other's artistry. In late 2010, T.I. sought advice from Eminem when struggling with a similar drug addiction.

After being released from his first prison stint for federal weapon charges on March 26, 2010, T.I. took to prescription pills -- o******** and hydrocodone -- to relieve the pain he derived from a hefty amount of oral surgeries. Unfortunately, what started out as medical aid quickly turned into an addiction.

Fearing he had a developed drug problem, T.I. reached out Eminem (who has famously dealt with addiction himself), for advice. "I asked him how he knew he was an addict," T.I. told VIBE in 2010. "[He said] basically, if you put yourself in harm's way… if you risk that, you've got to assume that there is something fundamentally wrong with your thought process."

T.I. told's The Juice that, alhough he has yet to connect with Eminem since he was freed from his second prison stint on Sept. 29, 2011, the Detroit rapper continues to be an "enormous supporter."

"I haven't had a chance to speak to Em since I've been home," T.I. said. "I heard that while I was down, he was trying to get in contact with me, but I don't know if the dots just didn't connect. [Eminem] overcoming his own adversities, winning the battle against his own demons and continuing to break the mold and re-set the standard of what it means to be the most successful hip-hop artist in the game ... I salute that to no end."

T.I. continued to pay respect to Eminem and his current projects. "I love what he's doing with Slaughterhouse. I love the move that he made to sign Yelawolf. And the record with him and Royce da 5'9" ... that record is going h.a.m. He killed that BET Hip-Hop Awards cypher. I've been peeping the move[ment]."

Now that he's clean and somber and living postively, T.I. shares words of wisdom to those struggling with drugs or having a difficult time staying out of trouble.

"It starts with you on the inside," he said. "I can give all the advice in the world, but at the end of the day you just got to make that decision internally with yourself. You have to see that you are ready to make a change. Until that moment comes, all advice in the world is going to be in vain cause I'm going to be talking to a brick wall."

"Everybody can tell you what you need to do, how to do it, when you need to do it, how bad you need to do it," T.I. continued. "But until you get that right ass whipping, as they say, and until you have hit rock bottom or have seen something in yourself that is so out of character and it displeases you so much that you just have no choice but to change it ... then you ain't going to see it."

Weed Head? Miley Cyrus Dances To 50 Cent's "In Da Club" & Talks About Being A Stoner At Her 19th Birthday Party

Does Miley Cyrus love marijuana? She seems to admit as much in a new video that is making it's way around the internet.

In the clip Miley can be seen dancing to 50 Cent's "In Da Club" before grabbing the mic to comment on the Bob Marley cake that was presented to her for her 19th birthday.

"You know you're a stoner when your friends make you a Bob Marley cake," said the former Disney princess. "You know you smoke way too much f*cking weed."

The scene reminded many of the video that surfaced last year of the "Hannah Montana" star smoking salvia shortly after her 18th birthday.

A rep for the singer was quick to issue a statement defending Miley.

“The cake was a joke and Miley was being sarcastic,” the rep told Access Hollywood on Sunday. “It is being completely taken out of context.”

Kelly Osbourne, who organized the event also tried to do damage control via Twitter.

"Let me make something very clear after @MileyCyrus salvia incident we started calling her bob miley as a JOKE!" she wrote. "The cake was also A JOKE! it makes me sick that @MileyCyrus so called 'friends' would sell her out and lead people 2 believe she is someone that she is not! U guys if @MileyCyrus is not recording/filming/touring she is works everyday how could she possible do all that if she was a stoner!

Cee Lo Talks New Life and Goodie Mob Reunion!


Bow Wow is all grown up now, but just because he’s a lil older … doesn’t mean he’s learned how to pay off Uncle Sam — he owes almost six figures in back taxes, this according to court documents.

A tax lien filed in Florida by the federal government says the rapper, real name Shad Gregory Moss, owes the government $91,105.61 for unpaid taxes from the year 2006.

A pair of magical sneakers won’t solve this problem.

Calls to Bow Wow’s rep were not returned.


Well this is unfortunate news…According to TMZ, TLC’s raspy-voiced vixen, T-Boz, is broke!

T-Boz ain’t too proud to beg — just like TLC sang back in the 90s — because she’s filed for bankruptcy.

According to docs filed last month in U.S. Bankruptcy Court, T-Boz (real name Tionne Watkins) found herself owing creditors $768,642.99 — mostly from mortgages on her $1.2 million house.

The docs don’t paint a picture of exorbitant spending — she takes in $11,700/month in income, with monthly expenses totaling $8,821.

TLC had ten top ten singles, four number one singles, four multi-platinum albums, and four Grammy Awards … but according to the docs, T-Boz only pulls in $1,200/month in royalties.

T-Boz might have dodged the bankruptcy bullet if she’d been able to collect the child support she claims she’s owed — which according to the docs is $250,000.

Calls to her attorney were not returned.

Wyclef seems to be in hot water for apparently squandering money from his Yele Haiti foundation. The NY Post blasted him recently and said that out of the $16 million dollars Yele Haiti raised in 2010, only $5.1 went to the country. Well, Wyclef is obviously not very pleased with the story and sent a letter to defending himself.

I started Yele in 2005 because I wanted to help people that were helpless in my home country of Haiti. People who didn’t have a voice, people who didn’t have resources, people who had mostly been forgotten.

Since Yele launched six years ago we have helped close to half a million people. I will always love and serve the Haitian people until the day I die.

The NY Post piece entitled, “Questions Dog Wyclef’s Haiti Fund” is misleading, deceptive and incomplete. The Post conveniently fails to acknowledge that the decisions that Yele made were a response to one of the world’s most catastrophic natural disasters in modern history and required an immediate humanitarian response.

There were no roads, no clean water, no sanitation, no banks, no electricity, no infrastructure. Immediate decisions were made to save lives and alleviate suffering. We made decisions that enabled us to provide emergency assistance in the midst of chaos and we stand by those decisions. We did the best we could with the available resources.

I am proud of the way that Yele handled the crisis on the ground in 2010. We were able to feed, clothe, provide medical assistance and shelter for more than 250 thousand people in need.

What the article doesn’t say is that the construction projects funded by Yele Haiti were responsible for rebuilding an orphanage, building a temporary assistance facility, and had constructed a system of out door toilet and shower facilities in Cite Soliel one of the largest slums in Port-au-Prince.

The Post never highlights that Amisphere Farm Labor was responsible for preparing and delivering close to 100,000 meals.

The Samosa SA property referenced by The Post was located in the vicinity of the largest tent camps in Port-au-Prince. Yele chose that location because it was closest to the people it needed serve.

All of these facts as well as photos and testimonials were readily available to The Post for their story. Unfortunately, they chose not to include these facts and instead chose to imply that Yele “squandered” donors money.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

Finally, the percentage of funds used is consistent with NGOs and Not For Profits operating in Haiti at the time. I have acknowledged that Yele has made mistakes in the past, including being late in IRS filings, but that is old news. When I entered politics last summer, I transitioned from being a board member and chairman of Yele Haiti to a supporter.

The new and good news is that Yele under new leadership, despite efforts to undermine its credibility and effectiveness, continues its mission to serve people in need.

Is The Beef Squashed? 50 Cent Speaks On T.I. Situation. Urges Fans To Be More Positive & Support Street King

Fif touched on the subject today via Twitter. He said he spoke with Tip last night. While he didn't reveal what was discussed, he did remind fans that Street King and helping those less fortunate is much more important than any beef.

"Look how much you fools have been tweeting about me and @tip I spoke to him last night you sh*t heads should be tweeting about street king," 50 wrote. "You know I try to do the right thing.

WTF? Cher & Team Nicki Minaj Battle On Twitter Over "Did It On 'Em" Lyrics

An unlikely Twitter spat went down yesterday between one of America's musical icons, Cher, and fans/associates of Young Money rapper Nicki Minaj.

The war of words was sparked when one of Cher's followers messaged her asking if she had heard a song by Nicki that was dissing her.

“@cher did you know that b*tch @NICKIMINAJ dissed you in her song DIDITONEM,” asked the fan.

The lyrics in question are from Minaj's song "Did It On 'Em" in which she raps, “If you could turn back time--Cher/You used to be here but now you gone--Nair.”

The song wasn't a Cher diss and it's highly likely Cher has never listened to it, but she replied back to the fan by writing, “Ive seen lots of people come & go! No biggie!”

That was all Team Minaj needed to see before they launched an attack on the singer. Nicki's friend/hype man Scaff Beezy responded quickly.

"Yo @cher listen to the words b4 you say dumb sh*t on twitter," he wrote. "Do you know what a rap metaphore is??? TM is a cult you dont want it with!!"

One she realized she wasn't being dissed in the song Cher apologized. “U R right ! Someone said I was dissed..I’ve been dissed b4,but instead of finding out I just got defensive ! I should know better.”

The argument should have ended there, but it didn't as people continued to insult Cher who finally got fed up. “Gimme a fkn break! Said I was dumb!" she wrote before deleting her tweets.

Nicki got wind of what was going on and messaged Cher, writing "@Cher #stopit5."

Meanwhile, Scaff Beezy continued to rant. Check out a play-by-play of what happened courtesy of Rap-Up.

Former Bad Boy Artist Loon Arrested In Belgium On Charges Of Heroin Distribution

The fall of former Bad Boy artists continues.

Amir Junaid Muhadith aka Loon has been arrested in Belgium on charges of heroin distribution. According to Parlemento, the former rapper was in Brussels to give a lecture. He was detained at the request of the United States under the Patriot Act, following a May 2011 indictment that alleges he “knowingly and intentionally” possessed with intent to distribute at least one kilogram of heroin in North Carolina between early 2006 and September 2008.

A copy of the indictment was posted on the website DDotOMen on Friday November 25.

Loon enjoyed musical success between 1999 and 2003. First as a part of Ma$e's Harlem World group before going solo. He was featured on Diddy's hit record "I Need A Girl Pt.1" in 2001. In 2003 he released his self titled debut album which featured the song "Down For Me."

Born Chauncey Lamont Hawkins, Loon converted to Islam in 2008 and legally changed his name.
