Master P on Whitney Houston: Where Were They When She Was Alive?

Master P has a few questions for those who have been coming out of nowhere with the love and admiration for Whitney Houston, and he makes some very valid points. Check out his editorial below:

We come from nothing. Nobody is perfect. But once you become a star, they never truly recognize you until you are dead. Whitney Houston had an amazing funeral. What a supporting cast of stars, politicians, community leaders, and business execs that attended and shared their love. But where were they when she was alive?

I’m asking the world some questions, and I just want you to think about what I’m saying. Maybe some of you asked the same questions.
•If Whitney was alive and had a birthday on February 18, 2012 instead of a funeral, how many celebrities would have showed up?
•Do you think Kevin Costner would have made time and said half of the nice things he said while Whitney was alive?
•With all of the money Whitney made for Arista Records, if she asked for some financial assistance to help put Bobby Kristina through college, do you think they would have helped her?
•With everything Whitney had been through and overcome, if she wanted to do a program to help girls, what TV stations would have aired it as quickly as they aired her funeral?
•Now they call Whitney a Legend, the Greatest, the Voice. How many told her that while she was alive?
•If Whitney were alive, how many of us would be waiting to see and support the upcoming movie, Sparkle?
•If Whitney were alive, would the Grammy’s have paid the same attention to her?
•Radio stations are playing Whitney’s music, her videos are in rotation, people are buying her albums, but who are the ones truly benefiting from it now?

Some say Clive Davis was her best friend. Just for the record, I’ve been in the music business for over 20 years. You are never friends with the people who are cutting your checks, because they’re always trying to figure out how to not pay you or pay you at the last minute.

We should give people flowers while they’re alive. They can’t do anything with them when they’re gone.

Allen Iverson Offered $20K Per Game To Play Indoor Soccer

Allen Iverson, the mercurial ex-NBA All Star guard, has fallen from the graces of basketball lore to near obscurity. After some recent headlines over unpaid bills along with passing on a NBA D-League opportunity, it appears a glimmer of hope remains for the former Sixers player to re-enter the world of professional sports after an offer was made to Iverson…to play indoor soccer.

The Major Indoor Soccer League team Rochester Lancers has offered the Hampton, VA native a chance to play with their team at a whopping $20K per game with a potential $5K bonus for each goal scored, reports Philadelphia news station NBC10. Over the weekend, Lancers VP Rich Randall sees something in Iverson that NBA GMs once saw in his basketball game.

"Allen Iverson is one of the premier athletes of our time," Lancers vice president Rich Randall said via a press release. "With his athleticism and competitive hunger, I think he can be a great fit with our team and fans as we make an important playoff push, while also driving interest to an exciting, growing sport.”

Although Iverson was a star basketball and football player in high school, he's never been known to play soccer. However, Randall thinks Iverson would be perfect for his team and an obvious media coup for the New York-based team.

Iverson hasn't played pro ball since a stint overseas in Turkey in 2010-11. With Iverson's garnishment issues over unpaid funds for jewelry, it isn't as if Iverson couldn't use the money to pay off his debt. But at 36, Iverson has a lot of miles on a battle-weary body and soccer is one of the more physically grueling sports around.

Venture Capitalist Uses Hip-Hop To Explain Business Methods

A successful Silicon Valley businessman's rise to prominence is unique in that he eschews typical tactics used to inform those in his field and instead, relies on Hip Hop music to make many of his business decisions. Further, Ben Horowitz uses rap lyrics to speak for him in times where he isn't able to articulate his ideas, creating a new paradigm in the high stakes world of tech investment.

"All the management books are like, 'This is how you set objectives, this is how you set up an org chart,' but that's all the easy part of management,” said Horowitz, co-founder of software company Opsware, along with Netscape creator Marc Andreessen. in an interview with the New York Times. “The hard part is how you feel. Rap helps me connect emotionally.”

Horowitz and Andreessen have both since moved from selling the Opsware company for $1.6 billion dollars in 2007 to starting venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz in 2009. The pair made tons of money investing in startups such as Groupon and Skype, and they plan to make more power moves in the coming months. Quoting rapper Kanye West's “Stronger” as the inspiration needed to make the sale of Opsware to tech giant Hewlett-Packard, Horowitz strikes a most curious balance between the world of rap and business by melding the two to his personal needs.

Born in London in 1966, Horowitz became a fan of the music in the early 80s as a player on the Berkeley High football team. In his popular business blog, he often leads off his posts with a rap or music lyric that forms the impetus of the writing that follows. And it seems he's not just posing either; he named Rakim as the greatest rapper of all time, an opinion held by many reared in Hip-Hop.

Also highlighted in the Times interview is an instance where Horowitz had to use a song from west coast vet The Game, “Scream On Em,” to make his point to a fellow business executive instead of employing jargon.

“I couldn't have explained what I was talking about quite right, but he called and said, ‘I've been listening to that song every day, and everything is better,” said Horowitz of the exchange.

DMX Owes $1 Million In Back Child Support

Dark Man X can't stay out a courtroom. According to TMZ, DMX owes $1 million in back child support. But that's only part of the story.

Turns out that since X, born Earl Simmons, owes so much money in child support, he has to ask the court for permission to obtain a passport and leave the country. The Yonkers rapper filed a motion with the LA Superior Court for permission to perform out in Europe. However, X's alleged baby momma, Patricia Trejo, was in court Thursday (February 16) arguing against the motion, claiming X hasn't paid child support in 10 years and she's tired of waiting on her loot.
