Atlanta police have arrested rapper Gucci Mane on weapons and drug charges.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (http://bit.ly/17zi5IB) and WSB-TV said an Atlanta police report shows officers responded to a call shortly before 1 a.m. Saturday in southwest Atlanta from a friend of the rapper who was concerned about his behavior.
The police report said Gucci Mane, whose real name is Radric Davis, became “increasingly agitated with officers and began cursing and threatening them.”
P Diddy has reportedly started dating 20-year-old model Kate Upton and they were seen kissing during a recent night out.
The 43-year-old rap mogul was apparently seen kissing the Sports illustrated model – who confirmed in February she had split from Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander – at Miami Beach nightspot Club LIV late last month, where they partied in the VIP section at a bash being held by the I’ll be Missing You hitmaker.
A source told the New York Daily News newspaper: “They were kissing, they weren’t hiding it.”
Reebok had been inundated with calls to drop Ross after the release of “U.O.E.N.O.,” which includes the lyric, “Put molly all in her champagne, she ain’t even know it. I took her home and I enjoyed that. She ain’t even know it.” (Molly is a slang term for MDMA, a crystalline or powder form of the drug Ecstasy.)
“It’s time for Reebok to stop using their brand as a platform to promote rape and the idea that rape is not just okay, but cool,” Nita Chaudhary, cofounder of women’s rights group UltraViolet, said in a statement today following a protest outside the sportswear brand’s flagship store in New York City.
Rapper Ja Rule left an upstate New York prison Thursday morning after serving most of his two-year sentence for illegal gun possession and headed straight into federal custody in a tax case.
The rapper, who had been in protective custody because of his celebrity, has some time remaining on a 28-month sentence for tax evasion that ran concurrently.
Ja Rule, whose real name is Jeffrey Atkins, may have less than six months left and may be eligible for a halfway house, defense attorney Stacey Richman said. Back taxes are one of the main reasons he wants to get back to work, she said.
17-year-old rapper Chief Keef is already getting a head start on his baby mama drama — in fact, he’s so far ahead of the game … he allegedly impregnated a girl who’s STILL IN MIDDLE SCHOOL … and now, she’s suing for child support.
The girl filed the petition for child support in Chicago, claiming Keef – real name Keith Cozart – fathered a baby daughter with her back in 2011.
The girl’s exact age is unclear, but according to the docs, she currently attends a Chicago middle school – meaning she is .. at the MOST … in 8th grade.

According to CBS News/Celebrity Circuit Lil Wayne said that after a recent NBA playoffs ticket dispute he felt unwelcome and “unwanted” at the Oklahoma City arena and isn’t planning to return.
The rapper said two Thunder players — Kevin Durant and James Harden — had reached out to offer him tickets to Saturday’s fourth game of the Western Conference Finals.
“That’s not the point, though,” he told The Associated Press in an interview Friday night. “It’s the players stepping up but of course the players aren’t white. I don’t want to be sitting there on behalf of you and I’m sitting next to a (person) that’s like `I don’t want this (guy) sitting next to me.’ (Forget) you … I’m in Forbes,” he said, laughing.
Lil Wayne claimed in a tweet Thursday night that he had been “denied by the team to be in their arena.” The team responded by saying the seats he wanted were already taken.
He said he typically procures tickets for such games “from this guy named Mike.” Lil Wayne said Mike had requested special security, parking and entrance for the rapper, but Mike said the team responded that they would only sell the seats for Mike’s personal use.
Lil Wayne said a manager had advised him not to return to the city’s arena for sports events or concerts, but “I never say never.”
He said he felt welcome at other arenas including Miami, and likes being able to energize players — many of whom are fans of his music — on their home court.
“That’s like me going on stage and … seeing LeBron (James) in the crowd with his hand up. I’m going to perform a little bit harder,” he said.
But in Oklahoma, he said that while “the players want me there, I don’t want to feel — I’m going to still feel unwanted.”
“Of course, when someone tells Lil Wayne, `No,’ that he can’t come in, `We’re sold out,’ you feel a certain way. Unfortunately, it had to go down like that,” said Durant, the three-time NBA scoring champion.
“We’d have loved to have him here in Oklahoma City. We’d have welcomed him with open arms. Hopefully, we get past that and next time he can come and enjoy a game.”
A team spokesman has said Lil Wayne’s representatives insisted that he sit in the front row, and none of those seats were available. Oklahoma City sold out every home game during the regular season and playoffs.
“It was just a misunderstanding. We were sold out of tickets, I heard, and we didn’t come through,” Durant said. “He knows a few of us on the team and he knows it’s nothing like that. We offered him tickets to tonight but he had to do something. He’s a superstar in his own right, so he can’t just pick up and go to a game.
“He had something to do, but I’m sure if his schedule was free, he would have came tonight. We’re still inviting him to games — maybe not this year. Next year or whatever.”
Rapper Bow Wow was interviewed by Sway on MTV’s RapFix Live talking about fatherhood.
The rapper said he spends quality time with his daughter Shai and said “it’s the illiest feeling in the world”. There’s a song called “Boy or Girl” that’s about being a daddy which will be one of the tracks on his latest album “Underrated”.
Bow Wow is 24-year old.
Also, this video shows other music artists and their kids such as; T.I.’s son Doomani, Ja Rule, Nick Cannon, and among others.
Shawn Corey Carter (born December 4, 1969), better known by his stage name Jay-Z.
He married American R&B star Beyoncé on April 4, 2008. On December 11, 2009, Jay-Z was ranked as the 10th most successful artist of the 2000’s by Billboard and ranking as the 5th top solo male artist and as the 4th top rapper behind Eminem, Nelly and 50 Cent.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Kanye West is using the words of 19thcentury philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche to make his case in court.
The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals is considering whether to uphold the dismissal of a 2010 claim that the rapper stole the song “Stronger” from another artist.
Plaintiff Vincent Peters, in addition to claiming similarity in the use of “Kate Moss” and the title “Stronger,” zeroes in on alleged similarities in the chorus. Both sides acknowledge the lyrics are based on Nietzsche’s phrase, “That which does not kill us makes us stronger.”
