Ever wonder what was Nas thoughts about his divorce with R&B songstress Kelis? In a recent interview with MTV RapFix, Nas finally spoke out on how his divorce went and being in the limelight:

“Life is crazy. I [wound] up paying more money to baby mommas than what some of my rap brothers and sistren make,” he said. “I’ve always been away from too much limelight and that right there put me in your… No one’s exempt from people probing into your life once you get into the game. So it put a lot of my business out there, man. It was like, people weren’t thinking I was making that kind of money, and now they knew.

“I was always low key with it in a lot of ways. It was hard with people being all in your business, and it was just ugly. Divorce can be crazy,” he continued, offering some advice for married couples. “Man, if you’re happy… Love is a beast, man. Hold on. Be prepared for any way it may go, and be honest.”

[FAME] Miami Heat Pays Tribute To Trayvon Martin

Miami Heat Players come together to pay tribute to Trayvon Martin, a 17-year-old black child who was shot in a gated community by George Zimmerman, a VOLUNTEER neighborhood watch!

Trayvon was wearing a hooded sweatshirt and carrying skittles and ice tea when he was chased and gunned down by Zimmerman, who claims to have acted in self-defense.

Here’s my opinion:

No matter what angle you take in looking into this tragedy, this to me, was a racist act! And whether George Zimmerman is white or of Hispanic ethnicity, it does not change a thing. Last I checked, Hispanics could also be racist towards a different race. The fact that Zimmerman is still a free man is beneath me. Even if they are still investigating the situation, he should be in jail until the investigation is over. The fact that the dispatch [via his 911 call] told him NOT  to follow Martin, and some kind of way he managed to find him and kill him before the police arrived speaks volumes [not to mention the fact that his words on the 911 call were “these assholes, they always get away which doesn’t help a bit]. This is a disgrace to the society and a horrible look for the government and Florida police department who have not taken action in this matter and it has been over a month! This is supposed to be the Land of the Free but I surely don’t feel free or safe and fear for my child.

My prayers go out to Trayvon Martin’s family and friends, I hope justice is brought to you all sooner than later…

YMCMB has the music industry on lock and they just keep tightening the cuffs! Just last week at the SXSW concert, Lil Wayne promoted his new multi-million dollar endorsement [his first] with Pepsi owned Mountain Dew! Weezy is now starting to branch out to the more business side of his career with a new clothing line just released [Trukit] and a future sneaker release. Here’s what Mountain Dew Brand Manager, Jamal Henderson, had to say about the collab with Weezy:

“We are celebrating Wayne through this campaign as an artist who found his personal success by following his own path.”

“There is no other artist who embodies that ethos more than Lil Wayne, who is not only always dancing outside of the box but makes no apologies for who he is.”

As if DEWeezy wasn’t enough, yesterday Forbes reported that Nicki Minaj has sign a multi million dollar deal with Pepsi! With their new drink called Pop coming soon, Pepsi decided Minaj should be the face of the franchise being as tho she is one of the biggest influences on the pop industry with her unorthodox stand out style! You can look forward to seeing Nicki’s first Pop Pepsi commercial in about 2 months

[Rumor.Millz] J.R Smith Taunting Joe Budden With Tahiry

20120312-110428.jpg
So apparently J.R. Smith made a very frail attempt to get at Joe Budden via twitter by posting a pic of his EX girlfriend Tahiry with no panties on!
According to sources the two was shacked up in his hotel in Milwaukee! They “supposedly” known each other for years and just rekindled things when JR got traded to the Knivks.
Before Joey got a chance to speak out or even make a comeback to the shots thrown at him, the NBA put JR in his place buying hitting him with a 25,000 fine for in inappropriate pic!
I don’t know about y’all, but given Joey rap sheet; I CANT WAIT to see if and when he get back at Smith. Stay tuned.
