Bow Wow Sued By French Porn Star

A French porn star is suing rapper Bow Wow over allegations he used film footage of her dance moves in his music video without permission.

Celine ‘Katsuni’ Tran claims she appeared as a club dancer in a promo for French band Electronic Conspiracy, but the clips showing her in action were allegedly taken and used in Bow Wow’s video for the remix of his track Drank in My Cup, which was released in April.

Tran has filed suit against the 25 year old and his record label bosses at Universal Music Group for publicity rights violations, unfair business practices, false association and unjust enrichment. She is demanding more than £46,875 in damages.

With a sir name like ‘Tran’ I don’t even know why he thought it was acceptable to put him her in the video in the first place!

I like the song…not sure I can say i’m waiting for the video *LOL*

Lil Wayne & DJ Drama Announce “Dedication 4,” Due In August

The next “Dedication” mixtape is due next month, say Lil Wayne and DJ Drama.

The last entry in Lil Wayne’s heralded Dedication series came out in 2008. Four years later, the long-awaited Dedication 4 is now a reality.

On Sunday (July 22), Lil Wayne confirmed the release of the DJ Drama-hosted project to his fans on Twitter:

“Dedikation 4 komin next month.”

In addition, DJ Drama confirmed the project by retweeting Wayne’s message, as well as discussing it with MTV’s RapFix Live. “Me [and] Cortez [Bryant] had been talkin’ back [and] forth for …[a]bout a year that it was almost time for D4” said the mixtape deejay. “He said Tunechi had been mentioning it and was gearing up. During the Vegas stop on ‘Club Paradise’ tour, Tez told me it was a 100% go.”

“I told him thank god, [because] the fans invade my [T]witter daily asking about it! Dram & Wayne is a dangerous combination. Shout out to the Mixtape Weezy. Get ready.”

 

Drake Compares “Take Care” To Upcoming Third Album

Drake talks about how “Take Care” reflects his move back to Toronto and how his third project will differ.

Drake recently chopped it up with Billboard to discuss the next leg of his widely successful Club Paradise Tour, which will feature the likes of J. Cole, Waka Focka Flame, Meek Mill, 2 Chainz and French Montana. During the interview, the YMCMB rapper talked about the creation of his sophomore album Take Care.

Drizzy said that he feels that Take Care reflects a lot of the personal turmoil he endured moving back to his native Toronto after he broke through on the US charts. Despite this shift in setting, he said that he’s in a entirely different mindset musically and that his next album is going to push all conceptual boundaries.

“I think my mood will be reflected in the tempos I choose for the music,” he explained. “A lot of Take Care, it’s down…and I think a lot of it had to do with being back in Toronto, getting reacquainted with the life I had before [fame] and difficulties with that, and at the same time trying to express excitement, express joy…I still live in Toronto and love the city,” he said, “but there’s just so much going on for me in the U.S. I recently made the move to L.A. There’s a new atmosphere. I’m getting to know new people…anybody knows that when it’s new, that’s when I thrive. When there’s new things to talk about that’s really when I get off.”

He added, “Now I’m in a very, very, very, very different place than I’ve ever been, really focused on myself, really focused on my health, my body, my mind, really wanting to be the best I can possibly be…I’m in a different mindset now that I’m very proud of…it’s going to be a very interesting album – probably, to be honest with you, conceptually one of the most exciting projects I’ve worked on, just ’cause there’s so many new things going on in my life.”

Ok ok enough with the talk…give us the music fam!

Bow Wow Arrest Warrant Issued For Unpaid 2009 Tour Bus Bill *HAHAHAHA*

The Cash Money Records artist is wanted for arrest in the Peach State.

Rapper Bow Wow is wanted for arrest in Georgia. The former So So Def/Sony Records star reportedly owes $100,000 to a Tennessee-based coach company for 2009 tour-bus services.

According to TMZ.com, in October 2011 a Georgia judge asked Bow Wow to produce documents after the trial had been moved to the rapper’s state of residence. As Bow Wow has reportedly not acted on the judges orders, a warrant was issued for his arrest.

When business goes wrong! Fraud! Why not just pay the taxes…not like you can’t afford it!

Cory Gunz Arrested With Loaded Gun *Well Durrrrrrr*

The Young Money rapper has been caught by the ‘Feds’ in the Bronx with a loaded gun. *Smh*

Cory Gunz was arrested for gun possession in the Bronx, New York, on Saturday (January 28) afternoon.

The Young Money emcee’s father, rapper Peter Gunz, confirmed the report to MTV News.

“The details are still sketchy, but I can confirm that he was arrested with a firearm yesterday in the Bronx,” Gunz told MTV News. “They caught him around 2 p.m. in the afternoon with a loaded gun in his knapsack.
“It was definitely an illegal search,” Peter added.
Gunz was unable to disclose full details on the incident just yet, but he explained the events leading up to his son’s arrest. “I spoke to the arresting officer, and so far, what I’m hearing from him is that they got a phone call at the station saying they should ‘look out,’ ” Gunz said. “According to [the officer], they didn’t know he was Cory Gunz. They just saw a bunch of kids following him around.
“What I will say is that the officer that arrested Cory actually happened to be a cool dude,” Gunz continued. “After arresting Cory, sitting down with him and talking, he felt bad about the situation.”

“The details are still sketchy, but I can confirm that he was arrested with a firearm yesterday in the Bronx,” explained Peter. “They caught him around 2 p.m. in the afternoon with a loaded gun in his knapsack.

“It was definitely an illegal search,” he added.

“What I will say is that the officer that arrested Cory actually happened to be a cool dude,” explained Peter. “After arresting Cory, sitting down with him and talking, he felt bad about the situation.”

Though this is Cory Gunz’ first charge, his father is worried about New York’s stringent gun laws, the same that put the likes of Lil Wayne, Ja Rule, Mobb Deep’s Prodigy, and NFL wide receiver Plaxico Burress in prison.

“To go to a precinct and see your son, your junior, in handcuffs, it’s heartbreaking. Anytime you see your child in jail, in the cell, in handcuffs, it’s very hard. He’s walked down some of the same paths that I walked down, but you never want to see your kids go through what you went through.”

Suprised?
