DeAndre Wants Kanye and Jay-Z


It was a rough start (“Bird Walk”, anyone?) but now that Soulja Boy has dodged the sophomore jinx, he’s got his eyes on album number tre and his dream of collaborating with hip-hop’s elite. Plus it looks like the gimmicks are over.

“My first two albums, I never did tell people my story,” he said. “I just put out fun records. … Now that people got these hits, it’s time to go in on ‘em.” 

I like this kid.

Jadakiss Makes His First iTunes Purchase


In the clip, Jason attempts to purchase CNN’s Channel 10 via Mr. Jobs. In Kiss’ defense, I’ve never bought anything off of iTunes either. Call me old fashion, but I’d rather go to my local mom-n-pop and cop the actual CD—hard plastic and all.

Rick Ross Busted For Fake Shades

Ah man, Officer Ricky stays losing. Here’s a kite Louis Vuitton’s lawyer’s sent to XXL:

Dear Editor:

We were dismayed to see the cover of the May 2009 issue of XXL Magazine, which features a photo of Rick Ross wearing a pair of sunglasses prominently featuring counterfeit Louis Vuitton trademarks. Because the photo has generated considerable confusion among your readers and Louis Vuitton customers among others, we feel it is important to clarify several points.

The first is that the sunglasses Mr. Ross is wearing were not made by Louis Vuitton, and in fact, are counterfeit. Louis Vuitton did not grant permission to Mr. Ross or to whoever did make the sunglasses to use our trademarks.

The second is that no affiliation, sponsorship or association exists between Rick Ross or XXL and Louis Vuitton.

The third is that counterfeiting is illegal. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to correct the confusion.


Michael D. Pantalony, Esq.
Louis Vuitton Malletier
