But the singer has returned to the microblogging site to clear up rumours the dispute became physical. He writes, "Battery? Nope. I attempted to grab a camera, no punches were thrown and no one was on the ground... It was literally harmless. If embarrassment is a crime - that's all I'm guilty of."

Def Manic isn't your average rapper in today's society. He is based out of Australia and a friend to us at HipHossip. In his words: "I see the world at a different perspective then the average person who is too ignorant to see the things that occur around them. We all have a story to tell, and usually our stories are what leads us to do certain things, for me, it's being a rapper."I like this track "The Dream" as it has some good beats mixed with awesome lyrics and has a taste of reggae in a way. Actually fits in both genres. Congrats on the new single.

TORONTO CRIMESTOPPERS: OUR PAL CONSTABLE SCOTT MILLS IS FEATURED IN DIGITAL JOURNAL FOR HIS WORK ON SOCIAL MEDIA.
Toronto Police Intel discovered the photos but not before they had been on the page for a few hours. Because of that person's actions the page no longer allows for photos and video to be posted by the public. That move was a hard one for Mills.Constable Mills is one of the nicest men you will ever talk to. His dedication to serving the people of Toronto is non-stop. Scott works with the Public Information Unit. The unit is behind the press releases that journalists use to begin their reports on crime in the city. The unit is also behind the department's social media networking. For the past six years Scott has been the key player for that part of the work.Six years ago Mills teamed up with Crime Stoppers.
The move was a bold one for the police and for Mills personally. If Crime Stoppers didn't work out online then it would be unlikely for the Toronto Police to move into the social media age. While the program partners with the police it is not part of the Toronto Police Service. Crime stoppers is a group of concerned citizen volunteers serve on the Board of Directors to oversee the Toronto Crime Stoppers program. The TPS provides them a coordinator to manage the day-to-day operations and talks the program School Crime Stoppers but that's their limit. The program celebrated their 25th year in Toronto in 2010.
He posted the first video on YouTube in April 2007 launching a new way for the site to connect with the public. From YouTube came a page on Facebook to a Twitter account and a presence on Vibe.TO.Mills efforts paid off. In 2009 there were a record number of tips that lead to arrests. One-third of the more than 10,300 tips were drug-related.By 2010 Toronto Police had a good view of what social media networking could be doing for the city. Mills left Crime stoppers in April right before the G20 Summit to become the Social Media Officer for TPS.While the tips on crimes is invaluable to the police it's the stories that don't get in the media because they never happened that are most telling of the use of the program."Since I started with Crime stoppers I can say that we have stopped crimes from taking place.
Two school shooting didn't happen because of the tips we received and countless teenagers didn't commit suicide because we were alerted through social media networking."Getting those tips in takes a lot of work. It's more than the 40 hours that Mills is paid for. He works hard, often in the background because he knows that the program is making the streets of Toronto safer."I sleep better at night because of this work. It's very productive and very time consuming.The possibilities of how to use social media in policing are endless, it's a huge tool. The TPS is putting a lot of faith into this program."

Charges against the rapper include carrying a concealed weapon, possession of a firearm by a felon, and possession of a stolen firearm. He was on the way to LA for the VMA’s when airport security found a Smith & Wesson 639 in Pablo’s carry-on luggage. Petey Pablo’s Real Life “Get Me Out of Jail” Experience:Petey Pablo is already out of jail on a $50,000 bond. He is due in court in North Carolina on Monday.So, how much sense does it make to carry a gun through an airport these days? Especially if you are a felon and the weapon is stolen?
To top it all off, Pablo tried to get through the airport with the gun on the anniversary of 9/11, when security is always heightened. Smart.Seems like Petey Pablo was almost begging to be arrested.
Apparently learning that his choice of fashion style has offended some people, will.i.am quickly wrote on his Twitter to downplay the issue. He started his self-defense, "1st. just because I where all black including head mask as expression and emphasize my outfit, it shouldn't be looked at as racial..."
"Let go of the past. there are far more important things 2 bark about. (Jobs, health, education) not a black man wearing all black everything," he continued. "Are you guys serious? my outfit set 'black people back 100 yrs' choose your twits wisely. no education sets people back, no jobs, bad health."
While some people slammed will.i.am, Lil Duval took it as a comedy. "I think will i am took a dip in the oil spill for that performance," he posted on his own page, referring to the rapper's "Check It Out" performance with Nicki Minaj. Duval later on added, "I'm a comedian people so if u get upset u look real stupid."
Blackface first gained popularity during the 19th century and typically promotes racist stereotypes toward African Americans. Earlier this year, Estelle also came under fire for using black paint to cover her body and face in "Freak" music video. At that time, she responded to the controversy, saying "I'm black, so how do I do blackface? Missy [Elliott] did the same thing [with her video]. She's a B***h. I refuse to defend it, I didn't put any white ring around my mouth - never that."
The order lists three possible violations of his bond: possession of ecstasy on Sept. 1, testing positive for opiates on Sept. 2 and associating on Sept. 1 with Cortez Thomas, a convicted felon.
Several pills that the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department called a "controlled substance" were found on Grammy award-winning rapper and his new wife after they were stopped Sept. 1 on a Hollywood street after making an illegal U-turn.
It is reported that the pills were found on T.I. and his new wife, Tameka "Tiny" Cottle, and not in the Maybach, the luxury car they were in.
It's truly a great song and will no doubt end up on countless best-of lists at the end of the year. But how does it match up against West's library of killer singles?

A police report says 38-year-old Victor Eras was taking pictures of the singer Thursday when Lambert started running toward him "in an aggressive manner." Eras claims Lambert grabbed his back pack and wrestled him to the ground. The photographer did not suffer any injuries. He declined
to comment to The Associated Press on Friday.
No arrests were made. A police spokesman says there will not be an investigation. The state attorney's office will review the report and decide if any charges will be filed. TMZ first reported the alleged attack.
Lambert's publicist did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
Harlen Akins sued Kid Rock, whose real name is Robert James Ritchie, and five members of his entourage over the fight. DeKalb County State Court Judge Johnny Panos on Thursday dismissed two of the defendants.
Akins sought $6,000 in medical fees and an unspecified amount in punitive damages. The jury decided not to award punitive damages, but gave him $40,000 in compensatory damages.
The jury saw a lot of provocation from both sides and couldn't attribute blame completely to either, said the foreman, who declined to give his name.

All three artists will battle it out with Eminem and Wayne for Lyricist of the Year, and Jay-Z will face his pal Kanye West in the Best Live Performer category, alongside Drake, Lil Wayne and Busta Rhymes.
The CD of the Year award category will be a scrap between Jay-Z's "The Blueprint 3", Drake's "Thank Me Later", Eminem's "Recovery", Rick Ross' "Teflon Don" and "B.o.B Presents The Adventures of Bobby Ray" by B.o.B.

Dr Malinda Sapp's wife dies of colon cancer. This is truly a tragedy. She was just 43 years old. Our thoughts and prayers go to the Sapp family.
I watched this young lady born and raised back in the Baltimore, MD days. Will and Jada are longtime pals in my radio days. Enjoy some of the pictures below. Willow is clearly talented. Has nothing to do with who her parents are except the blood flowing thru her veins. Click the OLD pics below to see who's who in the pics.
