I knew at some point he was gonna get put on blast for this whole Snoop Lion nonsense.
Snoop Lion, nee Snoop Dogg, has done the seemingly impossible — pissed off a bunch of ganja smoking Rastafarians — who claim he lied about becoming a Rasta just to make a movie and sell records … and now they’re threatening to sue. Bunny Wailer — an original member of Bob Marley and the Wailers — tells TMZ he’s heated about the docu-film “Reincarnated” … which documented Snoop’s immersion in the Rasta culture as he recorded his first reggae album in Jamaica last year.
Wailer claims Snoop has engaged in “outright fraudulent use of Rastafari Community’s personalities and symbolism” — and has failed to meet “contractual, moral and verbal commitments.”
And it’s not just Bunny who feels burned — leaders of something called the Ethio-Africa Diaspora Union Millennium Council (aka Rastafari Millennium Council) — fired of a 7-page demand letter to Snoop.
In the docs they claim to have made it clear to Snoop that “smoking weed and loving Bob Marley and reggae music is not what defines the Rastafari Indigenous Culture!”
Bottom line … they want Snoop to stop using the name “Lion” … pay up the “financial and moral support” they claim he committed, and issue a public apology.
If Snoop refuses — FIRE WILL BUN FI HIM!! Or in layman’s terms … they’re gonna sue his ass. We called Snoop for comment, and so far no word back.
Sooo I'm guessing we wont see any Snoop on stage with them on Saturday night in PC!
Rumors had been swirling for the last year or so of a possible Outkast reunion. Howeever, Andre 3000 recently shot down any possibilities for him and Big Boi getting back together...at least for time being.
From Real Talk NY:
It’s important for me to be clear about the origins of my contributions to ‘Pink Matter’ and ‘Sorry.’ I was approached as a solo artist by both Frank Ocean & Tip. I discussed musical direction with each artist and completed my verses. It was after that when Big Boi’s name came up.
I never want to mislead our audience – I worried that some would think these were Outkast collaborations. These songs are not Outkast collaborations. I discussed this rationale with Big, Frank and T.I. and everyone agreed. That is why I was surprised to read about these remixes. I understand that anyone can put out an unofficial remix to any song but I have an obligation to be honest with fans about what this is … and what it isn’t.” - Andre 3000 via Spin
Oh well...we'll always have the classics :)
Some interesting facts here, about where the bullets hit Biggie at and actually caused his death.
The report confirms Wallace -- who was listed at 6'1", 395 lbs -- was struck a total of 4 times in a drive-by shooting on Wilshire Blvd while the 24-year-old rapper sat in the passenger seat of a Chevy Suburban.
According to the report, 3 of the shots were NOT fatal.
-- Gunshot #1 struck Wallace in the left forearm and traveled down to his wrist. -- Gunshot #2 struck Wallace in the back, missed all vital organs, and exited through his left shoulder. -- Gunshot #3 struck Wallace on his outer left thigh and exited through his inner left thigh.
The reports says ... after Gunshot #3 exited the thigh, "the projectile strikes the left side of the scrotum, causing a very shallow, 3/8 inch linear laceration."
The fatal bullet was Gunshot #4 ... which entered Wallace's body through his right hip and ripped its way through several vital organs ... before coming to rest in his left shoulder area.
According to the report, the bullet perforated Wallace's colon, liver, heart and the upper lobe of his left lung.
Immediately after the shooting Wallace was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Hospital -- where doctors performed an emergency thoracotomy ... but it was too late. Wallace was pronounced dead at 1:15 AM.
According to the report, all 4 of the gunshots traveled through the Suburban passenger door before striking Wallace. Two of the bullets were found on the gurney that transported Wallace to the hospital. Another bullet was discovered at the hospital when the body was turned over after doctors had pronounced him dead.
During the autopsy, the coroner listed Wallace as "morbidly obese." A toxicology test revealed Wallace had no traces of drugs or alcohol in his system at the time of his death.
Wallace's body was eventually ID'd by his mother and wife.
One last thing ... on one of the pages of the autopsy report, there is a note scribbled under the headline "Other Pertinent Information" which reads: "Decedent may be rap singer."
Wallace was 24.
He may be gone...but the music lives on forever!
A British woman is divorcing her husband because he refuses to reenact parts of the steamy 50 Shades of Grey with her. Well somebody has some high freak tendencies huh?
From The Frisky:
She thought their sex life had hit a rut – he never remembered Valentine’s Day and he never complimented her on her appearance. So she bought sexy underwear in an attempt to get her husband more involved. She said, ‘Let’s make things more interesting.’ But when he still didn’t take any notice she told him he had a boring attitude to sex and she was fed up. He went ballistic when he found out the name of the book she was reading and told her, ‘It’s all because you have been reading that bloody book.
Of the five different reasons that British couples can cite when filing for divorce, she called this “unreasonable behavior.” Fortunately for her, the husband agrees … although it’s not clear whether he agreed it’s unreasonable not to tie your wife up during a romp in the sack, or whether dating someone who liked the godawful writing in 50 Shades is the problem.
I say just hit a male strip club with your girls, he'll come around once he sees all the one dollar bills, and a g-string with the name Mondo on em! lol
Well it finally happened for Lebron "King" James. Last night the NBA MVP received his much anticipated ring.
