After celebrating his birthday last night at an amazingly packed LIV nightclub, Flo-Rida has a little more to be happy about. His latest single “Club Can’t Handle Me” off the Step Up 3D soundtrack has been declared as an official “platinum selling” single at 1.2 Million copies so far. The song is a catchy tune produced by crossover dance sensation David Guetta. Shouts to Papa Smirf for the heads up. You can purchase the single on iTunes by clicking here.
DeAndre Cortez Way crowd-surfs for VIBE‘s first digital magazine cover. Below is an excerpt of SB’s cover story where he discusses the time he was asked about drug usage from his pops.
“My Dad was on me heavy about drugs,” remembers Soulja, slumped on a red two-seater couch, staring straight ahead at nothing in particular. “He found a little sack in my bedroom, but it wasn’t from drugs. They came from some earrings that I bought. He and my stepmother kept asking if I do drugs. So I finally just said, ‘Look, I rap. I’ma be a famous rapper. My name’s Soulja Boy.’ And started showing them everything I was doing on the Internet— my MySpace page and everything.”
Prison time for T.I. is inevitable, although prosecutors and defense lawyers representing the rap star are arguing in court over how much time he should spend in prison for violating his probation.
According to reports, T.I.'s probation officer has recommended a sentence of eight to 14 months in prison, while lawyers for the rapper countered that at most, T.I. should be sent to prison for 5 to 11 months.
At 2:00 PM on October 15th, T.I. will find out just how much time he will spend behind bars, for violating the terms of his probation on September 1st in Los Angeles.
Police stopped the rapper around 10:45PM on the Sunset Strip, after he made an illegal U-turn in his Maybach.
A search of the occupants revealed that T.I. and his wife Tameka "Tiny" Cottle were carrying a controlled substance, later identified as ecstasy.
Additionally, T.I. tested positive for drugs during a test conducted after the traffic stop.
T.I. was on probation after being released from prison last March, after serving a year for attempting to purchase machine guns and silencers in October of 2007, just before the BET Awards.
Florida rapper Brisco recently spoke with AllHipHop.com about his recent tour, his interaction with his fans and upcoming projects with Lil Wayne and Rick Ross.
“ just came off the second stage of the promo tour, just finished the midwest, then we did that East coast,” Brisco told AllHipHop.com in an exclusive interview. “Man it was like 20 cities on the first phase. We started in New York, New Jersey and worked our way down to the Carolinas, DC, Philly, every time I woke up we were in a different spot.”
While he has a solid fan base in the south, Brisco is looking to expand to other states and regions with this tour, as the third leg of the tour begins and will take the Florida rapper out West.
“You know a lot of people just love Brisco, just love that voice and the name, but never saw me," Brisco told AllHipHop.com. "You know what I’m saying? So that’s what I am doing now, is just putting a face with the name and my groundwork has just been so explosive and I’m very experienced, that I guess people were just overwhelmed to see me.”
In addition to the work on his latest project Street Medicine, Brisco talked about his work with Rick Ross and their recent record “Lonely Road."
“Me and Ross have done so many records, and I just always had the records in the kinnel just chillin, and I’m like lets just open the flood gates on this Rick Ross and Brisco stuff here. You gonna here me do a lot of features with your favorite rappers,” Brisco stated. “That “Lonely Road” record is a record we just did chillin’. Just a regular record, just down to earth, one of those 10 o’clock in the morning I come to his house we just do that record. It’s a regular, just down to reality, its some we aint too rich, but still hood s**t.”
Brisco was also looking forward to reuniting with Lil Wayne, who is featured on their latest single "On the Wall."
"Free Lil’ Wayne before I proceed. That’s the campaign right now, I can wait till he gets home," Brisco stated. "I just got a bunch of records, like plethora of records that I have to get it to the world, get out to the masses, like songs with all your favorite rappers."
