Purple People Eater

This morning, our always amusingly-coiffed Nicki Minaj gave her face muscles quite the workout as she unveiled the Casio Tryx Digital Camera Billboard in Times Square, New York.

Nicki went pose crazy atop an open-top bus before heading down (carefully in those shoes, we hope) to further promote Casio’s snapper from the safety and comfort of a podium.

Wiz Khalifa arrested after boasting of $10,000 a month weed habit?

Tuesday, November 9th, 2010

After boasting that he spent $10,000 a month of marijuana, if comes as no surprise to the logical thinker (not a hope of that with a mind fuddled on a $10 K habit) the local law enforcement agency is not going to take the statement lightly.

Wiz Khalifa reportedly bragged that he spent $10,000 a month on cannabis. Needless to say the statement has back to haunt him after the rapper was arrested for … possession of marijuana.

The 22-year-old rapper was arrested in North Carolina early today.  A fan who was at the rapper’s gig in North Carolina uploaded the above video of people protesting against what is claimed to be the rapper’s arrest.

Wiz Khalifa has released many mixtapes and two albums since 2006 and put his name to a branded form of cigarette papers and released a song called Weed Roller.

Khalifa tweeted today: “Smoke outs in greenville nc tonite. fall thru wit ur finest plant life.”

Smart move!

Eminem Wins Royalties Case in Appeal Court!

Sunday, September 5th, 2010

A federal appeals court has found that F.B.T Productions LLC, Eminem’s former production company, is entitled to royalties by Universal Music Group (UMG) for music downloaded over iTunes or sold as cellphone ringtones.

A federal jury ruled against F.B.T at the original trial last year.  However, the appeals court ruled on Friday that the contracts between UMG and F.B.T. “unambiguously applies to permanent downloads and master-tones,” which entitles Eminem and his producers to a 50-50 split for recordings licensed to iTunes and other digital distributors.

This ruling could potentially affect how record labels and artists make financial deals in the future.

We think rightly so!
