Getting arrested three times in one day? That's the shit we don't like. Getting a feature placement on Kanye West's new album is a great look—Being behind bars isn't. Haven't we seen this movie before? This Chiraq MC and trouble are synomnous. Drive slow, young homie.
You Played Yourself
The whole 2 Chainz robbery fiasco. The culprits. Tit for initially denying it and you fuck boys on the Internet who made him feel like he should. Ain't no shame in defending yourself by fists or by feet. It ain't safe in these streets.

“Everyone cell phones n the sky one time…Heavy D, Heavy D”
The Throne held their second concert last night at Madison Square Garden. During the tail end of their performance of “Made In America”, Hov gave two rest in peace shout-outs to Heavy D. (Sorry, we only caught the second). We still got nuttin’ but love for ya.

The Throne’s “Niggas In Paris” sure gets the people going. As we all know, the track features a sample from actor Will Ferrell’s 2007 film Blades Of Glory. In an interview with MTV, Will was flattered by his appearance on the track.
Kanye reached out to me and I said, ‘Of course’ I was completely flattered when they asked if they could sample me into the song … and when I heard it for the first time, I just started to laugh because it felt so surreal. But I really did like the song.
We were trying to film a piece that they would use on the video boards of their concert, but haven’t gotten it together — and the whole process has opened his eyes to an entirely new career opportunity: Being the go-to sample guy on the hip hop circuit. I think [something from] ‘Step Brothers’ would be good [to use in a song]. Or the Woody Allen movie I did, ‘Melinda and Melinda.’

It only took a month for The Throne’s album to move a million units. During their tour stop at The Garden last night, they both received their rewards backstage. Yup, it’s plaques on plaques on plaques.

Blues singer Syl Johnson filed a lawsuit last week for The Throne using his song ”Different Strokes” on their Pete Rock-produced ”The Joy“. During a visit at Sway In The Morning last week, his daughter and R&B singer Syleena Johnson spoke on the rumors surrounding it.
