Mindless Behavior & OMG Girlz shut down the city of Atlanta, attracting more than 5,000 screaming girls to their autograph session. Mindless Behavior is killing the game, I’ve never seen girls go crazy like they are over these dudes. They remind me a lot of B2K. Parents if you don’t know who these kids are you better get on your game. Kids, if you don’t know who these guys are, you better step up your game. And haters, don’t hate on them, just respect their hustle. Things got so crazy, that girls bum-rushed the autograph area and OMG Girlz and Mindless Behavior had to make a run for it!

Erykah is working to become a midwife after acting as a birth doula and helping close friends deliver their baby naturally.

I think Erykah will be natural at this. She told People magazine that, “ I’ve always had a mothering nature. But I didn’t plan on becoming a doula. I just wanted to care for my family and friends. When I saw the baby, I cried. I knew what I was supposed to do with my life.” READ MORE
