They say when it rains, it pours and the quote is holding true for R&B singer R. Kelly. Not too long ago we told you about his home in Chicago going into foreclosure because he had been spending his money on some suspicious activity. Well now, R. Kelly is facing bigger issues. His money maker (his throat) is in bad shape! The singer checked himself into a Chicago hospital because had been suffering from serious pain in his throat.Â Since then he has had an emergency throat surgery to drain an abscess. This is no good because dude is still out and about promoting Love Letter. More importantly, he’s gonna need his throat if he has any plans of trying to get his house out of foreclosure. I wish you all the best! Get better soon. What do you think of this situation? What do you think led to this situation?

â€œThe estate of Jimi Hendrix has responded to rumors of a biopic being completed but confirm they are working on releasing more documentary footage. READ MORE
Finally we have some new music from Jay-Z and Kanye West from their highly anticipated album Watch The Throne. I’m sure I’m not the only one who had been waiting for the new music with Kanye doing guest appearances everywhere including the 7th Annual Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival and more recently, Rihanna’s LOUD concert at the Nassau Coliseum last night. The song features an old school flavored beat that gives you something to nod your head to. Along with the dope beat, Jay and Kanye take consecutiveÂ turns rapping their verses throughout the song. This is a great release to set fans up for the release of Watch The Thrown which should drop in aboutÂ two weeks. Are you feeling this song?
Atlantic Records artist, Diggy Simmons recently shot his video for his new song Copy, Paste and we’ve got exclusive pics from the set here!
The video looks to be something very futuristic with the props and the sets that are being used in these pictures. You can tell that this is a project that he’s putting a lot of time and effort into.
Dude looks too cool. This song will be featured on his debut album Coming Soon. The video should feature some pretty fancy footwork. One thing is for sure:Â Diggy is one talented kid.
Diggy even got into some group choreography for his newÂ joint. This is something to look forward to being that I’ve never seen him dance.
Diggy this is definitely a good look for you. Keep up the good work. Are you looking forward to the release of this video?

A former friend of NBA great Shaquille O’Neal is making some very explosive allegations in a new lawsuit. Robert Ross filed documents in L.A. County Superior Court last Friday claiming that Shaq had several gang members kidnap him in 2008. Ross’ lawsuit goes on to allege that his kidnapping was just one of the many criminal activities that Shaq orchestrated. Ross says the basketball superstar once asked him to kill a “renown record producer,” as well as a woman Shaq had allegedly “impregnated and paid for her abortion.” Ross also claims that O’Neal once plotted to break the shooting arm of an NBA player. Ross, who is seeking unspecified damages, doesn’t say if any of the alleged plots were ever carried out.
Shaquille’s attorney has since told TMZ that Ross’ claims are “pure fiction,” adding that Shaq won’t “dignify these defamatory allegations with a response.”
Rihanna has been all over the internet lately. RiRi recently took the time to meet and greet fans backstage on her LOUD tour, little did she know she would also get to see and be apart of a marriage proposal. Rihanna was in the back taking photos, when she was shock buy one of her male fans who took out a little blue Tiffany’s box dropped to one knee and asked his long time girlfriend to marry him… and yes she did say YES!!!

Hating never gets anyone anywhere in the long run and their some hating going on right now between the Beyonce and Kelly Rowland camps. Beyonceâ€™s producer, Jeff Bhasker, decided to bashed Kelly’s latest hit song, â€œMotivation,â€ via Twitter to his 4,253 followers.
â€œHow can this kr song with the weakest beat and melody of all time be the #1 song on urban!? Oh yeah. Wayne,â€ Bhasker tweeted.
Oh, and to make sure he got his point across, Bhasker, a Grammy winning producer whoâ€™s also worked with Kanye West, Alicia Keys and Jay-Z, went back in on Kelly with this follow up tidbit:
â€œI just listened to Motivation again to see if I was to harsh in my critique. I wasnâ€™t. The lyrics are horrid as well.â€
I have to say I love the song and from the reaction I see at the club everyone else likes it too. Beyonce just needs to put out a hit. If “B” was 1# I bet he would have nothing to say!!! The folks over at EURweb asked:
So is there a a real problem between Kels and Bey or is just some rogue action by Bhasker to stir up some drama? Either way, itâ€™s got folksâ€™ attention.
Kelly F*ck the haterskeep pushing…
