When hip-hop legend Knowledge B. Born headed to the stage to finally receive his Hip-Hop Lifetime Achievement Award, he clutched in his right hand a speech written in graffiti that he had wanted to deliver for years. He planned to put the entire audience of rap superstars on blast for destroying the culture he helped create. But, when he looked into the faces of a room full of rich kids half his age, who were either half asleep or busy textin’, he just crumbled up his notes, said “Ya’ll keep doin’ your thing,” and left the stage. Leaving the crowd whispering amongst themselves, “Who was that old dude…”

Scott Storch tried to hide a baggie of cocaine in a trash can at the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Vegas before cops arrived … this according to the police report, obtained by TMZ.
In the report, the arresting officer says cops fished out the baggie after receiving a tip from hotel security … and discovered it contained 2.7 grams of blow.
Hip-hop producer Scott Storch — a recovering drug addict — was arrested in Vegas earlier this month for possession of cocaine … TMZ has learned.
According to law enforcement, Storch was arrested at a Vegas hotel around 8:30 AM on Feb. 4.
Sources tell us … the arrest went down after an employee called police to complain that Storch wouldn’t pay for his room.
When cops arrived to the scene, we’re told officers discovered Storch was in possession of cocaine. Storch was hauled to a nearby police station … where he was released on $5k bond.
Storch — who has worked with stars like Beyoncé, 50 Cent, Dr. Dre, Snoop, Pink and more — famously blew a $30 million fortune after getting hooked on drugs back in 2006. He eventually checked into rehab and has been working on his recovery ever since.

Snoop Dogg’s laid-back flow is one of the most consistent and dependable things in music, hip-hop or otherwise, and since the early ’90s, he’s made just about every track he’s guested on better. Now comes a true test of his abilities: In an interview with the New York Post, Paris Hilton has revealed that the Long Beach rapper will appear on her next album.
“It should be out in the next few months,” the heiress, reality star and sometime pop singer told Page Six, dishing about her forthcoming sophomore record. “We just finished doing my single with [band] LMFAO, then I’m recording with Snoop Dogg.”
The album is being produced by Hilton’s boyfriend, Afrojack, a Dutch DJ and dance artist known for his work with Pitbull and Beyonce, among others. Last year, he remixed Snoop’s single “Sweat,” which might explain how the Doggfather became involved with this project.
Or maybe Snoop liked what he heard back in 2009, when he and Paris — or Sweet P, as he dubbed her — busted some freestyle rhymes on his MTV show ‘Dogg After Dark.’ The clip below doesn’t leave us with much hope for the upcoming team-up, but maybe they’ve been practicing.
