At this rate, his next album is going to be called “Katt Williams Arrested.” The comedian, known as much these days for his police record as his comedy and luxurious hair, was arrested on an outstanding warrant in Los Angeles Wednesday, after failing to show up in court for a prior arrest. That’s right: Katt Williams was arrested for having been arrested before.
Williams missed a court date in Sacramento, which is when a judge issued a bench warrant for his arrest. That court date was related to an incident in November, when Williams was charged with evading the California Highway Patrol after speeding away from cops on a three-wheeled motorcycle.
That incident got Katt Williams arrested, but he’s had plenty of recent run-ins with the cops too. There was a child endangerment charge to ring in 2013, and the IRS claims he owes the Federal government $4 million.
Williams is out on $100,000 bail, but something tells us this won’t be the last time we see Katt Williams arrested. The funnyman retired from comedy late last year after racking up an impressive end to 2012. Katt Williams was arrested for a bar fight in Seattle, and even had an illegal gun confiscated from his house. Here’s to hoping this is the last Katt Williams arrest for the year.
Santana Hot 97 Interview:
New Song Below:
“You know, equality is a myth, and for some reason, everyone accepts the fact that women don’t make as much money as men do. I don’t understand that. Why do we have to take a backseat?” she says in her film, which begins with her 2011 decision to sever her business relationship with her father. “I truly believe that women should be financially independent from their men. And let’s face it, money gives men the power to run the show. It gives men the power to define value. They define what’s sexy. And men define what’s feminine. It’s ridiculous.”
On the album’s influences: “Mostly R&B. I always have my Prince and rock/soul influences. There’s a bit of D’Angelo, some ’60s doo-wop. And Aretha and Diana Ross.”
On her collaborators: “I’ve been working with Pharrell and Timbaland and Justin Timberlake and Dream. We all started in the ’90s, when R&B was the most important genre, and we all kind of want that back: the feeling that music gave us.”
Beyonce has already recorded 50 songs for her upcoming album, clearly having a child has not slowed her down. Now only if all women can listen her message about being financially independent.
The Trinidadian-born raptress has just penned a deal with Kmart to produce a lifestyle brand for the major retail chain. Minaj in all her eccentricities is sure to incorporate much of her distinct style (think pink and flirty designs) to the brand, which will include a fashion and accessory line as well as housewares.
Beyoncé‘s reign is revving up and she’s bringing Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams along for the ride.
Today (Jan. 10), King Bey simply typed, “I am so proud to announce the first original Destiny’s Child music in eight years!“ announcing to fans there is a new DC album on the horizon. Set for release on January 29, Destiny’s Child Love Songs hosts 14 tracks the divas recorded between their 1998 debut to their last output. On Facebook, the GQ cover girl also announced new single “Nuclear,” the last cut on the LP and DC highlight since their 2004 Destiny Fulfilled.
Following the release of their forthcoming project, we’ll have our fingers crossed that these three vocalists will take this show on the road.

Chris Brown and Rihanna are reportedly sharing the stage at this year’s Grammy Awards so we know it’s reaL
“Chris wants to perform with Rihanna at the Grammys to show the whole world they are back together,” a source told Radar Online exclusively. “Chris doesn’t care what the haters say, and wants to give the viewers an over the top performance with Rihanna.”
Grammy producers haven’t sealed the deal officially, given the potential backlash the performance could receive from the assault on Rih that happened four years prior.
While lingering memories of the images from leaves a bad taste in fans’ mouths, Chris thinks the on-stage reunion will help, not hurt, the Chrianna cause. He wants the fans to know this is the real deal, and he is a changed man,” the source said. “If Rihanna can forgive him, the rest of the world should move on from what happened four years ago.”
A shockwave surged through timelines when rapper Freddy E allegedly took his own life before posting a series of chilling tweets leading up to it.
Female MC Honey Cocaine, a friend of Freddy’s, not only mourned his death but had to fend off accusations on Twitter that she was the cause. “What they don’t understand is that we were just friends. Blogs are saying that I was his ex-girlfriend and he did what he did because of a failed relationship. That has nothing to do with anything. I need people to understand that it was just a friendship,” Honey Cocaine told MTV Newsexclusively.
Freddy E, a poet and comedian who showcased his work on his JERKTV YouTube channel, sent out dark messages before the suicide. “If there’s a God then He’s calling me back home. This barrel never felt so good next to my dome. It’s cold & I’d rather die than live alone,” he wrote. “It’s… all… bad… y’all. *puts finger around trigger*”
Honey, who is signed to Tyga, says she wasn’t aware of the news till she checked her timeline. “He was going through things and sometimes, you know, people can’t handle it. If I could’ve done something, I would’ve done something but I had no idea,” she said.
“Everyone is fighting their own battles. We’re all soldiers. Some of our soldiers turn to angels, and some of us turn to veterans,” she said of her lost friend. “And he was one who turned into an angel… There’s more to what’s under the surface.”
GQ magazine finally spilled what everyone already knew: Beyoncé is gracing her body chain-laced bod on the Februay 2013 cover of the glossy. Here’s the real version of that shot we were talking about yesterday. Love?

Last night, VH1 kicked off it’s third season of “Love & Hip-Hop NY”
The 19-year-old Ulysses “Chris” Gissendanner III was killed on January 2nd.
Chief Keef’s 19-year-old stepbrother Ulysses “Chris” Gissendanner III has become yet another victim of Chicago, Illinois’ shooting epidemic.
According to DNA Info (via SOHH), Gissendanner was shot in the back of the head on the Far South Side on January 2nd. The aspiring rapper was killed in a car near 124th Street and South Ave. while visiting his uncle in West Pullman. He later died at Roseland Hospital.
Alfonso Cozart, who claims to be Keef’s biological father, was stepfather to Gissendanner, whose rap name was YPN Boomtown. Keef was related to Gissendanner through marriage.
Cozart, who no longer speaks with Chief Keef, said that Gissendanner’s murder makes him worry about Keef’s well being. “As a caring father, who wouldn’t worry about that?” Cozart asked. “I do want my son to have success and have a long, positive life, and I hope the best for him.”
He added that he doesn’t want Keef’s fame to overshadow Gissendanner’s passing. “He just graduated high school, and was in college and had a job. He was a positive person,” Cozart said. “I’m not trying to get publicity of Chief Keef being my son. I want you to focus on Ulysses. He’s the one that’s gone.”
This marks yet another recent death for Chicago teens due to gunfire. Keef’s alleged enemy Lil JoJolost his life at 16, while Joshua was murdered at 18 years old, both late last year.
Juelz Santana is ready to set off 2013 with a handful of projects.
Juelz Santana has been relatively quiet on the Rap front, promising mixtapes that failed to surface. But after announcing his upcoming mixtape God Will’n, releasing on January 14th, he’s setting off the New Year with a bang.
During an interview with Village Voice, the Dipset member said that he has already finished another mixtape to be released following God Will’n that sees him rapping over other artists’ beats.
“I’m gonna treat the situations like I’m a new artist. I’m just hungry again,” he said. “God Will’n is just gonna be the start of a new chapter. I got a new label situation called Anything’s Possible. But it’s still Dipset, Skull Gang. I’m still on Def Jam. I already got the second mixtape done after God Will’n where I’ll be rapping over other people’s beats but we’re just going to talk about God Will’n for now. I’m just happy to be back in business. I want to enjoy working and go hard and be where I need to be. Right where some of these niggas ain’t supposed to be. I’m still lookin better than a lot of niggas who just dropped albums though. They looking lost out here. It’s time to follow the leader again.”

Nicki Minaj is back to color all of Twitter pink once more much to the Barbz’ delight.
“I didn’t leave barbz, I was still here in spirit and u guys KNOW that so stop with the dramatics!!! LMAO. come sit in my lap.” the Young Money rapstress tweeted after falling off the e-streets for a month. She deaded her account shortly after going on a series of rants, first against Steven Tyler for his supposedly racist “American Idol” comments and then major retailers Walmart and Target for sweeping “Roman Reloaded: The Re-Up” off shelves.
But with American Idol making its return to the telly Jan. 9 at 7pm on FOX, it makes sense that Onika would show her animated face online again.
Welcome back, Nicki!

G.O.O.D. Music’s own Pusha T called in to DJ Whoo Kid’s Whoolywood Shuffle on Shade 45 to talk on his possibility on being selected as Baby KimYe’s godfather. “I don’t know who gon’ be the godfather, but we all gon pull our weight,” he says of the big decision Yeezy will soon be making.
Our money’s on Jay-Z, but you never know with those two.

Happy 1st Birthday, Blue Ivy Carter!
The first year of Blue’s life flew by. And while her superstar parents Beyoncé and Jay-Z were busy keeping up after her, the media tried to capture as much of it as possible. Any time Jayoncé stepped out they would cover their first born’s face, but there were a few times when they publicly released images of their little angel to feed the media’s curiosity.
