VIDEO: JIM JONES VERBALLY ABUSES HOTEL SECURITY STAFF (ATLANTA)

[Thanks Jigga] As most of you know my Jim Jim can do no wrong in my eyes. But I have to admit this video footage has left me shaking my head. This was embarrassing to watch.

90s R&B star Montell Jordan attended Tyler Perry’s ‘Madea Goes To Jail’ film premiere on Monday night (Feb 16th) in Atlanta, Georgia. I was never a Montell Jordan fan.

Montell and Adina Howard (remember Miss ‘Freak Like Me’) just disappeared in to obscurity post 1996. The music industry can be so cruel and fickle…… I haven’t watched any of Tyler Perry’s films. Partly because they have never been []

Radio One’s fourth annual Dirty Awards ended abruptly this evening when two separate altercations erupted reportedly between rapper Shawty Lo and members of the Grand Hustle camp tonight (November 24). An eye witness told AllHipHop.com that the tension between the two crews mounted during Shawty Lo’s performance, which included a diss version of Grand Hustle artist Yung LA’s song “Ain’t I.” As Lo performed his version []
