Welcome back to another installment of the MegaCityVIP Herald. You know we’re the best website for all your hip-hop news, and I’m about to serve it to you straight off the web. There’s a lot going on out there and I’ve been dying to tell you all about it.
Carmello Anthony was heated after the Celtics/Knicks game, so much that he was lurking outside the Knicks locker room waiting for Kevin Garnet. He also approached the team bus, where he was greeted by lots of police.
The two didn’t come to blows, apparently, but Melo was still pretty upset about an incident that happened on the court.
The twitter gods say that KG had some choice words about Ms. Anthony, alluding that he had slept with her.
Either way, Melo was suspended for one game, so he missed out on the Pacers. On the home front, people are starting to wonder about Melo and LaLa’s relationship since they haven’t been seen together lately.
Elsewhere in the world of sports, there brews battery charges. Pittsburgh Steelers running back (or should I say former), Chris Rainey was arrested Thursday night in Gainesville, Florida after slapping his girlfriend and scuffling for a cell phone. Rainey was to remain in Alachua County Jail at least until Friday, when he makes his first court appearance. He has since been dismissed from the team.
Diddy is Superman. Okay, no not really, but he did manage to pull together a Sound Clash in Jamaica in only 24 hours.
Working his magic in collaboration with Supreme Promotions, Downsound Records and Ciroc Vodka in association with Diddy’s own Bad Boy label, the event boasted a $20,000 USD prize that was claimed by Tony Matterhorn.
After collecting his prize, he announced that he’d donate some to charity and he also gave each of his fellow competitors $1000. How nice was that?
Azealia Banks and Beyonce go in together on a track. Ms. Banks did a little interview where she happened to let it slip that she spit a verse for Bey’s upcoming album. Rumors of Lady Gaga and Beyonce’s reunification for a “Ratchet” track can only be fueled by this, since Azealia helped write the track. I’m looking forward to it.
People who should not put out tracks: Kenya from The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Yes, she has decided to go the route of former train wreck, Kim and try her hand at being a pop star. The title is “Gone With the Wind Fabulous.” People on Twitter asked her if this was a joke. I’ve heard the song and I see drag queens all over the world performing it… better than the original. It’ll be available on Itunes this Sunday. Maybe she needs some music promotion?
Shawty Lo takes care of “all his baby mamas.” You may not be aware of who Shawty Lo is, and that’s okay. The southern rapper has struggled for years to stay even remotely relevant, even after beefing with fellow ATL hit maker, TI.
Well, he’s stirred up all kinds of controversy with the announcement of a TV special showcasing Lo and 10 of the women who have birthed his 11 children. The show hasn’t even started, and folks are calling Oxygen execs to pull it from the line up. It won’t happen.
As the home of The Bad Girls Club, this show is already set up for the Ratchet Hall of Fame.
Well, there you have it folks—some of the best headlines to grace the web. Tune in next week for more and be sure to keep checking Mega City VIP, the best hip-hop website for your entertainment news updates, new releases and music promotion needs!
