Bubba Sparxxx Owes Thousands In Back Taxes

Bubba Sparx says he’s changing his ways when it comes to his finances. TMZ first reported earlier this week that the rapper owes a little less than 30-thousand-dollars in back taxes to the state of Georgia, but Bubba says that’s not all.


He told the gossip site he also owes hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Federal Government. Bubba explains that he dug the financial hole by “having a good time” and not paying attention to a lot of issues, including “Mr. Tax Man.”


But he claims to have put an end to all of that, and has hired a tax lawyer and a business accountant to handle the situation. READ MORE

Especially with the topic being “Do you have a bitter ex that won’t go away?” Who would be more than appropriate to have on the show thank, Lil Scrappy and Mickey “MeMpHiTz” Wright on the show who BOTH have industry ex’s and storylines behind the breakups that have made FRONT PAGE HEADLINE and radio news.

Actress Tichina Arnold @TichinaArnold Turns 43 Today

The lovely actress Tichina Arnold turned 43 today . Arnold was one of my first TV crushes .


Her TV credits includes “Everybody Hates Chris” and “Martin”.



Tichina Arnold was born to a middle-class family in Queens, New York. Her mother was a sanitation department worker and her father was a police officer. She attended the Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts.

Tichina’s love for performing began in her childhood, holding church congregations as a four-year-old. When she turned eight, her mother and uncle encouraged her to audition, and she won a part in her first play The Me Nobody Knows at the Billie Holiday Theater in Brooklyn. She continued to perform in the theater and at supper clubs, starring in such production’s as Hair, Romance and Hard Times. She then landed parts in TV movies such as The Brass Ring in 1983 and PBS’ House of Dies Drear the year after.

Then her big break came in 1986 when she got the role of a lifetime, as one of the background singers in the movie “Little Shop of Horrors.” This movie scared the hell out of me for years I could not go in to my backyard thinking, “I would be attacked by the plants.”

Happy Birthday Ms. Arnold…. Arnold is engaged to Rico Hines

T.I. is not short on material for his upcoming album. The rapper recently told DJ Sense of Atlanta’s Hot 107.9 that he has 125 songs in the can for “Trouble Man,” the title of his eighth studio album. T.I. says he’s just sitting on the material right now. “Trouble Man” is due to be released on September 4th. That’s the day after the second season premiere of his VH1 reality series “T.I. and Tiny: The Family Hustle.” Do you remember 3 years ago when I attended T.I.unforgettable performance at club Crucial in Atlanta. After doing his Farewell Tour.

 The club was jammed packed full of people that came to show their love. T.I. talked to the crowd to let everyone know “no matter how much people might hate on him he will always keep his head up cause he’s the King B-Tch” … And he wouldn’t say it if he didn’t mean it”. Next thing I know Tip was talking about how people need to forgive and let things go don’t hold on to anything, and then Shawty Lo walked out on to the stage and extended his hand to the rapper. Both men embraced and shook hands as the audience was like what the hell… LOL
