Congratulations to Singer/Songwriter and “RHOA” cast member Kandi Burruss for recently signing record deal with Asylum Records.Â Her album should be coming out in the spring and will include producers Jazzy Pha & Drumma Boy.Â I also heard that it will feature rappers Gucci Mane, Rick Ross, Rasheeda.
Kandi also recently gave an interview to The Canadian Press about using the “RHOA” to jump back into the music scene.
AP: You rewrote and produced the song “Tardy For the Party” for your cast mate Kim Zolciak. Were you worried about the song failing while on the show?
Burruss: It could’ve went either way. It went good but it could’ve been career suicide for me. If that song would’ve been wack, that’s all people would remember me by. Nobody would’ve taken me seriously. Labels would’ve been saying I’m not hot anymore as a writer. … I’m thankful it turned out all right.
AP: Now, you’re looking to release an album this year. What will be the album title?
Burruss: At first, I was going to call it “B.L.O.G.” because I was inspired by some of the things I read on the blogs. Now I’m feeling like I should called it “Fly Above.” I’m overcoming stress and drama.
AP: Will you go into depth about your “Housewives” experience and A.J.’s death on the album?
Burruss: Some of the songs were written prior to the show. Half of the songs were written during my relationship with A.J. With the “Housewives” show you get the visual. So this album is the soundtrack to the show.
Reporters caught up with Hatian Superstar Wyclef Jean. See the emotional video below.
As stated earlier this week, Wyclef says five-dollars will be automatically donated to the Yele Haiti Earthquake Fund through those who use their cell phones to text â€œYeleâ€ to 501501. The public can also visitÂ www.Yele.org to make a donation.
Hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons says golf icon Tiger Woods has some big plans in store for the nation of Haiti following Tuesday’s massive earthquake. Simmons tweeted on his Twitter feed late Wednesday night, quote, “Tiger woods is doing something AMAZING!!!!” He followed up with another message that read, quote, “I heard tiger woods donating to send a cargo plane with a mobile hospital out there. Keep ur prayers high!”
Simmons is using his website, GlobalGrind.com to release information about the latest developments on how hip-hop’s brightest stars are helping the victims of Haiti’s 7.0-magnitude quake. A statement on GlobalGrind.com from DJ Whoo Kid reads, quote, “This problem is so crazy, so I’ve teamed with Wyclef Jean and his charity and relief efforts. I know that I am not a leader, and I’m very inexperienced in handling these critical situations, so I’ve decided to work with someone who knows the ins and outs of Haiti and is well respected by Haitians and President Obama.” Simmons and Whoo Kid are directing people to Yele.org, where they can donate money to Wyclef Jean’s charitable organization that has a history of helping the people of Haiti.
In an attempt to come back, Young Buck has been putting a lot of music out online.Â In his new song “Sooner or Later”Â he’s going in on 50 Cent and some of the newer members of G-Unit.Â Buck has been in the news the past couple of days about being secret lovers with Ray J and took to twitter to clear his name.Â
The homies over at Bossip.com posted the followup story about the crazy lady that went off at aÂ McDonalds. Here is what they said…
Remember the girl we told you about last week who went buckwild and berserk in McDonalds over a burger order gone bad? Well snitches helped police catch her and now sheâ€™s been charged for an estimated three stacks worth of property damage. Full details under the lid. Jackson County prosecutors charged a woman with property damage Tuesday for allegedly tearing up a McDonaldâ€™s lobby after being served a â€œmessed upâ€ cheeseburger. Kansas City police arrested Alesha McMullen, 19, on the felony charge Sunday at an apartment where she was hiding in a closet, according to court records. She was identified through calls to the TIPS Hotline after police released video surveillance of the Dec. 27 outburst at the restaurant at 3255 Main St. According to police, McMullen ordered the cheeseburger snack wrap, a newer menu item, but received a regular cheeseburger. Employees made another burger for her, but she allegedly refused it and demanded a refund. After employees said no, she allegedly threw a water dispenser and a plastic wet floor sign over the counter before knocking three cash registers off the counter, breaking one. Damage was estimated at $3,000. When questioned by police, McMullen admitted throwing things because the restaurant messed up her order, court records say. Detectives said McMullen said she was having a â€œbad day.â€
In case you missed it the first time. Hereâ€™s the video of the incident:
Hip-hop diva Kelis is claiming that her estranged husband Nas is in contempt of court. The “Bossy” singer is alleging that the rapper hasn’t made child support payments since December 1st. Kelis’ attorney, Laura Wasser, has filed papers in court stating that Nas did not pay nearly 60-thousand-dollars in spousal and child support. Last July, Nas was ordered to pay 55-thousand-dollars to cover the living expenses for Kelis and the couple’s newborn son, Knight Jones. Nas was also required to pay for his former flame’s prenatal expenses and medical bills, as well as paying 35-thousand-dollars to Laura Wasser.
For those of you who missed this weeks episode of American Idol, here is a lesson in common sense. 63 year old General Larry Platt goes hard with his viral hit “Pants on the Ground”. I understand fashion statements and all, but saggin TIGHT ass pants is for the birds, or any pants at that…for real. IfÂ folks knew the history behind saggin, they wouldn’t do it. Â Too bad the the general surpassed the shows age limit to perform in Hollywood. Could have gotten some of those young whipper snappers in check. lol
