Amber Rose was on the red carpet for the Soul Train Awards and shouted me out that she knew who I was and all about the site. Now that I’ve heard this all is right in the world! LOL!
On a more serious note though, she did dish about the fact that she is gearing up to drop an album. We heard at the MTV VMA’s that her and Wiz were in the studio playing around withaÂ few things but now it appears that things are shaping up. Not sure on when the the album will debut but I’m interested in seeing what Amber has to say. READ MORE

Just so yall know BET Network loves Atlanta and the feeling is mutual.
The network is bringing its 6th annual BET Hip Hop Awards back this fall.Â For the last four years the show has been taped at the Atlanta Civic Center and is scheduled to return the first Saturday of October 2011. This event has always sold out.Â Â Although itâ€™s taped in advance, the show runs very close to real time for attendees. The security during the event is incredibly tight; it seems to be just as many guards as attendees.
The Soul Train Awards, which airs on Centric and BET Networks, will also return this year. Produced in 2009, at the Georgia World Congress Center and in 2010 at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center. READ MORE
