Jay-Z was seen at Fortune nightclub in Vancouver, BC Canada after his concert the other night with this woman Bridget Kelly, a singer for the rapper. We all know Bey Bey has Camel on lock, but Bridget is a banger and if Jay won’t chop her down, we know someone who will.

T.I. wins 2 awards from prison; Kayne a no-show at BET Hip Hop Awards in Atlanta

Posted: Sunday – October 11, 2009

T.I. didn’t need to attend the BET Hip-Hop Awards to win two trophies on Saturday.

The rapper, who is locked up in an Arkansas penitentiary on a federal weapons conviction, won the best collaboration award with Rhianna for the song “Live Your Life” and the album of the year award for “Paper Trail.” His fiancee Tameka “Tiny” Cottle accepted his awards at the ceremony in Atlanta and read a letter by the rapper, who began serving a yearlong sentence in late May.

“Although I’m not there with you all, I’m there in spirit,” Cottle quoted the rapper as writing. “My road to redemption is almost over. … Thanks for the support.”

Jay-Z was honored as the “MVP of the Year,” while Drake took home “Rookie of the Year,” and Ice Cube received the “I Am Hip-Hop” icon award.

Ice Cube said he was humbled by the award, and he believes his career as filmmaker could earn him more honors in the future. He helped launch the gangsta rap genre with the group NWA, and he starred in “Barbershop” and “Friday,” which he also co-wrote.

“When you get recognized by your peers for a life of work, you got to be humbled,” the rap veteran said. “I’m honored by this. I have 20 more years of work left in me. I hope (BET) is ready to give out two of these awards.”

Rapper Busta Rhymes presented the award for “DJ of the Year” to DJ AM, the celebrity spinner who died of an accidental drug overdose in August.

Kanye West, meanwhile, couldn’t hijack the stage, because the rapper was a no-show. West had been expected to attend the fourth annual awards show. He fell under scrutiny for interrupting Taylor Swift’s award-winning moment at last month’s MTV Video Music Awards.

Jay-Z took the stage with Young Jeezy to perform “Real as It Gets” and rap group Goodie Mob performed its 1995 song “Cell Therapy.”

The award show will air on Oct. 27.

Kanye Apologizes For Interrupting Taylor Swift At VMA’s

Posted: Monday – September 14, 2009

Kanye West has apologized to country singer Taylor Swift after the rapper/singer jumped on stage during her acceptance speech at the 2009 Video Music Awards last night (September 13).

Swift won the MTV VMA for best female video for “You Belong With Me,” besting Beyonce’s “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It).”

Kanye West felt Beyonce was meant to win the award and rushed the stage during Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech, interrupting her to proclaim Beyonce’s vide the “best of all-time,” leaving the young singer in tears.

On his blog he said:

I’M SOOOOO SORRY TO TAYLOR SWIFT AND HER FANS AND HER MOM. I SPOKE TO HER MOTHER RIGHT AFTER AND SHE SAID THE SAME THING MY MOTHER WOULD’VE SAID. SHE IS VERY TALENTED! I LIKE THE LYRICS ABOUT BEING A CHEERLEADER AND SHE’S IN THE BLEACHERS! …………………… I’M IN THE WRONG FOR GOING ON STAGE AND TAKING AWAY FROM HER MOMENT!……………..

I REALLY FEEL BAD FOR TAYLOR AND I’M SINCERELY SORRY!!! MUCH RESPECT!!!!!

Later in the show, Beyonce allowed Swift to finish her speech, after Beyonce took home Video of the Year.

“Wow. This is amazing. I remember being 17-years -old being up for my first award with Destiny’s Child. And it was one of the most exciting moments of my life,” said Beyonce, who came up to accept the award for Video of the Year. So I would like to invite Taylor to come out and have her moment.”

While the two hugged, the crowd gave a standing ovation as Swift finished her acceptance speech as she thanked her fans as well her little brother’s high school for letting her shoot the video for “You Belong to Me.”

For the remainder of the show nearly every mention of Kanye incited a roar of boo’s from the audience.

There are also pictures floating around the web of Kanye drinking from a bottle of alcohol on the red carpet, which may have played a part in the rapper’s outburst.

West was also removed from Radio City Music Hall after interrupting Swift.

Many celebrities on Twitter reacted to Kanye’s outburst and to Beyonce’s kind gesture.

Here are a few:

Pop singer Pinks twitter: www.twitter.com/Pink: “Kanye west is the biggest piece of shit on earth. Quote me. ” “Beyonce is a classy lady.I feel for her, too.Its not her fault at all, and her and Taylor did their thing. And douche bag got kicked out. HA.”

The 2009 MTV Video Music Awards was live from Radio City Music Hall in New York City.

In addition to Swift and West’s situation, this year’s VMA’s featured a moving tribute to Michael Jackson.

Janet Jackson concluded the tribute to her brother as dancers performed routines from videos to Michael Jackson hits such as “Thriller,” “Bad” and “Smooth Criminal” while each wearing a white glove on their right hand.

Performers included Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Jay-Z and Alicia Keys who closed the show, among others.

50 Cent, Fab Vs. T-Pain, Lil Wayne, Speech DeBelle

Posted: Wednesday – September 9, 2009

Rapper 50 Cent has set off speculation that a name change could be coming after the release of his fourth major album, Before I Self Destruct. 50 sent a cryptic message on his Twitter.com page, stating “50 Cent is a person I created, soon it will be time to destroy him and become somebody else.” 50 Cent took his name from Kelvin “50 Cent” Martin, a notorious “stick-up kid” who hailed from Brooklyn, New York and was the subject of the documentary Infamous Times: The Original 50 Cent. In related news, 50 Cent’s book The 50th Law with author Robert Greene, landed in stores yesterday (September 8).

Fabolous recently took to Twitter.com, where he fired off a series of Tweets attacking superstar producer T-Pain. Fabolous mistakenly replied to a Tweet sent from a phony T-Pain Twitter account that stated “f**k Jay-Z and Fabolous too.” In addition to defending his own honor, Fabolous took up for fellow Brooklynite Jay-Z, who was dissed by T-Pain just days earlier in Las Vegas. Yesterday, a trending topic on the site was the “hash tag” “#tpainbetter.” That was followed by a number of insults, including #tpain better not meet me in Brooklyn” and..#tpainbetter audition to be a California Raisin….“He’s done. stop singin in the fan… that aint talent we can all do that.” When Fabolous found out the Tweet was from a fake account he stated: “thats jus a taste of what u’ll get if u f**k wit me via twitter, Back to my Twitter chillin.” T-Pain has yet to respond to Fabolous’ rant.

Lil’ Wayne’s 2008-2009 North American tour schedule grossed over $42 million dollars, making it the most lucrative Hip-Hop tour ever tracked by industry trade magazine, Billboard. Lil Wayne headlined 78 arena’s or amphitheater concerts from December 2008 to September 2009, drawing over 804,000 fans. Wayne’s $42 million topped Jay-Z’s 2008 tour with Mary J. Blige, which raked in $34.6 million off of 28 shows.

Rapper Speech DeBelle beat out 11 acts to win the esteemed Mercury Prize for her album Speech Therapy. The rapper, who hails from south London, won the Mercury Prize for releasing what critics felt was the best album in the past year. In addition to added exposure as a new artist, Speech DeBelle won £20,000. “I feel so good. It feels better than I imagined. My family’s here. My friends are here. I’m from south London – I don’t get emotional – I’m emotional. This proves if you believe in something and you think you can do it, you can achieve it,” Speech DeBelle said.

A host of Hip-Hop superstars have helped a community in Alpine, New Jersey earn the title of “most expensive zip code” by Forbes magazine.

A new list published today by the popular magazine revealed that the Alpine zip code of 07620 is the priciest place to live in the United States, with the average home selling for around $4.14 million dollars.

Entrepreneurs and artists like Sean “Diddy” Combs, Lil Kim, Fabolous, Jay-Z, Russell Simmons, LL Cool J, Andre Harrell, Fabolous and Damon Dash have called Alpine home at one time or another.

The neighborhood, which is about 10 miles from Manhattan, edged out zip codes like Atherton, California, which was the second most expensive place to live in the nation with an average cost for a home at about $3.85 million.

New York’s West Village is the third on Forbes list, with the average price of a home selling at about $3.5 million dollars.

Other esteemed zip codes on the list include 81611 (Aspen, Colorado), 90210 (Beverly Hills) and 93953 (Pebble Beach, California).

According to Forbes, all of the top ten places to live in the United States are in California, New York and New Jersey.
