The Ratchet Report: Draya & Sundy’s Oscar Party Fight, LHHNY’s Rashidah Ali Back in Court, & Lamar’s Pushers Stole $250K in Jewels from Khloe??
Brawl In Beverly Hills between LA Basketball Wives Stars
Basketball Wives of LA get into a heated confrontation…. Draya Michele and Sunday Carter of the new season of Basketballs wives of LA get into a verbal confrontation at an Oscar Party. The reality stars kept the drama going even off camera at the Uptown Magazine event during Oscar weekend. Shows from this season have only appeared a few times, but I conclude that there is going to be tons of drama. Reports from several press outlets stated that the two women yelled and argued at a civilized crowded venue while co-star Malaysia Pargo stood close. Apparently the women had been arguing about issues they are having on the show as well as comments Sunday Carter allegedly had been making about Draya during press interviews.
Well, if anything, they have definitely boosted ratings by acting like two High School children with nothing else better to do but hey it gives me something ratchet to write about…. Thanks Ladies!
Love and Hip Hop NY Rashidah Ali Back in Court
Reality-star Rashidah Ali facing parole violation…. Back in 2011 the infamous, unapologetic, no holds bars boss chick Rashidah Ali was arrested for fraud. Ali was convicted on charges of stealing and using a credit card from a professional athlete that she had known. Court reports that Ali didn’t get any jail time, but was put on parole for the conviction. A judge violated Ali’s parole after missing several scheduled parole meetings and never paid restitution per order of the court.
I’m sure Ali has the money especially after all the guest appearances she has made on the show. On top of that, she is planning a lavish wedding on the show that she kicked her former BFF Tahiry Jose out of, I must add. Ali was spared by the judge and was not in violation this time. Hopefully, she has learned her lesson.
Lamar Odom Drug Dealers Possible Suspects of Home Robbery
Odom dealers may have stolen wife Khole Kardashian’s jewelry…. After further investigation and several testimonies about Odom’s drug debt, police think his pushers could have been the perp’s in the burglary of his home. Whoever robbed the home took a reported $250,000 worth of jewlrey from Khole Kardashian. Several sources say that Odom owed the dealers several thousands of dollars and would always blow them off when they contacted him to recoup whatever he owed. Cops say because there were no signs of forced entry, they think it was an inside job by one of their staff members that may have been working with the dealers.
Lamar Odom’s has a net worth of $50 million. I have no clue of why he would be in debt with anybody. I just hope that for his sake, his gorgeous wife Khole Kardashian, and the kids, that he seeks the help he needs.
This week “Really Award” goes to Rashidah Ali. How can you skip out on parole meetings and appear on several episodes of one of the highest rated shows in America?
Parole + Restitution – Non Reporting – Non Payment of Restitution = Not a Good Move #THINK
Chile…it has to be embarrassing for both parties when news like this won’t seem to go away.
Ludacris is back in court regarding parental authority over his newborn child, Cai Bella. As some of you may remember, news broke last year that Ludacris had a child outside of his long-time relationship with another woman name Tamika Fuller. Fuller, a former waitress at Atlanta’s Magic City exotic dance club, took Luda to court and requested an absurd monthly child support payment ($17K). But, the rapper/actor fired back at her claiming to be broke, thus asking the judge to reduce the amount to $7K. The judge sympathized because of the recent death of Luda’s Fast & Furious co-star, Paul Walker, which caused production of the film to be halted.
Now, TMZ is reporting that Ludacris has turn the tables again on Tamika. He is know fighting for full custody of the baby and for the mother to pay him child support.
The rapper now says in legal docs he’s a “fit and capable parent” and should get full physical custody. He offers up his parental resume, saying he’s always been “an active father” to his 12-year-old girl.
Baby Cai Bella was born only two months ago and has been taken care of by Tamika. Tamika recently took to Twitter making claims that Luda has yet to make efforts to even see the baby.
WHAT DO YOU THINK? SHOULD LUDA FIGHT FOR CUSTODY? OR NOT?
The Ratchet Report: RHOA’s Mama Joyce Strikes Again, Crayton Explains Anti-Gay Tweet, & Rickey Smiley Trickin’ Off Into Debt??
RHOA Mama Joyce Strikes again and taking no Prisoners
Mama Joyce confronts Carmen again…. We have all watched and enjoyed the RHOA for several years. We have watched cast members come and go and build life long bonds, plus friendships that would not usually happen. We have the opportunities to see weddings, divorces, child births and the city of Atlanta get some good exposure. Most of all we have had the chance to see these women grow personally and professionally and “keep it real” all at the same time. The RHOA franchise has shown the world that wealthy people have the same challenges and issues everyday working class citizens have the only difference is the women in the show have just a little more cash flow.
This year the show took an unusual twist when Mama Joyce, the mother of RHOA star Kandi Burruss, expressed her thoughts about Kandi’s fiancé Todd. The last episode Mama Joyce was on sparked super ratings for the Bravo show because of the altercation she had with Kandi’s best friend and assistant Carmen. Well get ready because clips are circulating the web for the next episode and Mama Joyce is at it again. Carmen received some news about “the people in the streets” making accusations that Todd and Carmen were having a secret relationship behind Kandi’s back and confronted the person.
To Carmen’s surprise, Mama Joyce got wind of Carmen confronting the alleged person who happens to be Todd’s ex-girlfriend and left a threatening message on Carmen’s phone. Mama Joyce stated that she was not happy with Carmen confronting the alleged person and threatened to drag Carmen up and down the street.
I love Mama Joyce and think she is a fantastic woman, however, at a certain point in your life some things should be left alone – and this in my opinion is one.
Hide you kids hide your friends Mama Joyce is knocking out everybody or maybe just Carmen.
Patrick Crayton has to back track “there goes the NFL” tweets…
Patrick Crayton Twitter rants about Prospective NFL rookie Michael Sams announcement about being gay…. On Feb 9th Patrick Crayton responded to a tweet from ESPN’s Adam Schefter’s report about the projected mid-round NFL pick Michael Sam announcing being gay. Crayton replied with his beginning tweet “Oh wow!!! There goes the NFL!.” He later went to tweet, “trying to figure why announce and stay in the closet and keep, To urself!!!” Clayton later went on to try to clarify tweets after making such a dumb move and stated.
“A lot of people are mad because I said there goes the NFL,” Crayton tweeted. “I say that because now this young man is (going) to get all the wrong attention for his sexual choice and a lot of players and execs will get asked about playing with a gay guy and they are going to have to lie about how they really feel.
“This young man will come in with notoriety for announcing his sexual choice more then his ability to play the game he loves!!! This will be a major thing in football for yrs to come. So for all u guys cussing at me and calling me a bigot, a–hole or whatever, know where (expletive) I’m coming from before u do what u hate others to do when a situation like this is announced!!” (Source: www.dallasnews.com)
The world is filled with so much hate and scrutiny because a person is rich, poor, black, white, short, tall, skinny or fat, but no one is trying to embrace and love others for just being a human being. I applaud Michael Sams for having the guts to tell his truth and be happy with himself. I understand Crayton has his views and that’s also okay because this is America the land of the free and the brave and we all have our views and opinions. My suggestion however would be to embrace others and try to be more understanding.
In the words of the late Rodney King “Can’t we all just get along?”
Is Cash Flow Really Low for Comedian Ricky Smiley?
Former employee of Ricky Smiley calls former boss out…. We have all heard of the negative comments that terminated disgruntle ex-employees can make about previous employers. This time a former employee of comedian, actor and radio personality Ricky Smiley is talking to the press about his “debt” issues. The former employee stated that Ricky Smiley is up to his ears in IRS debt and back money owed to his previous manager. The former employee went on record stating that Smiley was a compulsive spender and made unnecessary purchases such as boats, cars and very expensive hotel rooms for call girls while on the road. The former employee stated that due to his spending habit and debt issues Smiley fired a lot of his staff and several others quit for various reasons. It was also stated from the former employee that Smiley’s CFO stated that Smiley would have to do live performances to supplement his monthly revenue according to www.celebnmusic247.com.
I’m not sure if this is true because of the source. But, if it is, my advice to Ricky is start booking and planning those shows because the IRS is outchea.
This week “Really Award” goes to my girl “Mama Joyce”. I know you mean well and want the best for your baby girl, but leave well enough alone and let that go. Kandi is a nice and intelligent woman and according to her net-worth, she is very smart… So no worries!

“The Ratchet Report”
Each week Stacks Mag will bring our readers “The Ratchet Report”…. We will highlight hot topics that have made headline news that make us say “Really”….. We will choose one report to receive the “Really Award” for the most down right ratchet thing we have ever heard of…. So sit back and enjoy as we bring to you “The Ratchet Report”
Definition of Ratchet in the Urban Dictionary: A hot mess
When the Church reference “Come As You Are” goes too far
Virginia church welcomes congregation just as they are…. For years pastors have been preaching messages of love, prosperity and hope, but for the small church in Virginia the message don’t just stop there. Whitetail Chapel, a small church just a few miles away from Virginia’s state capital, is doing more than putting their burdens down but their clothes as well. The church has literally relaxed the dress code for its members so that they don’t have to worry about what to wear, but focus on getting there. The church has an optional clothing policy that the congregation feels is not sexual, however, free from societal judgments. The pastor of the church , Pastor Allen Parker, leads the efforts and stated, “God doesn’t care if the believers wear clothes while they pray to Him. If God made us that way, then why is it wrong?” The church is located on a Nudist Resort in the Ivor Community and the members support and defend their decision to be free.
The bible does state judge not that ye may not be judged. So, if that’s how these people decide to pray, then more power to them. Just don’t expect me to show my neighbor a hug of love at the end of service.
Bieber Plane Searched by Feds in New Jersey
Bieber just can’t get enough of the police…. TMZ reported that Justin Bieber plane was searched in New Jersey after the pilot radioed Customs stating that Bieber and his friends were smoking marijuana on their flight to New Jersey. Reports from Bieber’s camp state that Bieber was aware – and was going to be searched by Customs upon arrival back to the states – because he is on a Homeland Security watch list due to 2 pending criminal cases. Although Bieber was informed by sources from his team, he decided to smoke on the aircraft anyway. The pilot stated that the he had to put on a gas mask because the smell of the marijuana was so strong and unbearable. The flight attendant on the flight stated that she was disrespected and harassed by Bieber and friends after asking them to stop smoking on the aircraft. When the plane arrived in New Jersey, federal officials were waiting with dogs to search the plane. Although Justin and his friends smoked all of the marijuana before the plane landed, drug-sniffing dogs detected trace amounts.
Bieber taking flying high to a new level. This is Biebers brain” __” …this is Biebers brain on drugs”__.”
Eddie Murphy’s Daughters Victoria Secret Photo Pitch
The Murphy girl’s home grown photo-shoot…. Do you remember when you were young and things you did when your parents were away? Well, Bria and Shayne Murphy took us all back down memory lane when their photos surfaced the media. Bria (age 24) and Shayne (age 19) decided they would make their mother Nicole Murphy and stepfather Michael Strahan’s bedroom the location for their lingerie photo shoot. The girls shot with photographer Dimitri Ray in the master bedroom of their parents Beverly hills mansion to pitch to Victoria Secrets. TMZ reported that Bria has attempted to model before, however this is a first time for her sister Shayne. But I must say, Shayne looks really HOTT.
I can say one thing Bria and Shayne better be glad Respusia Latimore isn’t their mother.
This week “Really Award” goes to no other than Justin Bieber. I mean what’s the deal with this kid. How many times does it take?

Scroll down for update…
What may come as a shock to many…legendary hip hop label, Bad Boy Records, is rumored to have closed its doors for good.
After learning that several Bad Boy employees were laid off, a huge staple of the 90′s hip hop era is now a distant memory. For the youngin’s that associates Sean “P. Diddy” Combs with Ciroc vodka, Sean John, and now REVOLT, go sift through the archives and learn about the mogul’s impact on music. He was the founder of one of the most legendary labels in hip hop. When you think of Christopher Wallace aka Notorious B.I.G., there’s Diddy. When you think of Lil Kim and Junior Mafia, there’s Diddy. When you think of Total, Craig Mack, Faith Evans, M.A.$.E, 112, The Lox, Black Rob, G. Dep, Shyne, Loon and Carl Thomas, there was Diddy. In the 90′s, Bad Boy Records had the music game in a choke hold. The label kept East Coast artists on top of the charts, making it extremely difficult for other regions to accumulate the same level of attention and success.
Near the end of the 90′s era into the 2000′s, Bad Boy Records experienced a major shift. The industry was evenly consumed with artists from all parts of the country. The deep South was taking over the throne. West Coast artists held on to their position. Midwest music maintained a decent buzz. A combination of these regional movements made it difficult for Bad Boy to keep the flame lit. In the meantime, Diddy was making other business moves (i.e. Justin’s restaurant, Sean John, etc) that can be attributed to his alleged lack of attention to the music. Plus, constant rumors of artists entering bad contracts eventually cast a dark cloud over the label. He tried to savage the legacy when he turned to reality television with “Making The Band”. From the show, Bad Boy signed on fresh young talent like groups Day 26 and Danity Kane.
However, those groups produced one or two albums under Bad Boy and then dismantled. Others were signed like Cheri Dennis, Elephant Man, Donnie Klang, and B5. Diddy even introduced Bad Boy South, which produced Boyz-N-Da Hood, Yung Joc, Gorilla Zoe, and even a short stint by Memphis, Tennessee legends 8Ball & MJG.
In most recent years, Bad Boy managed projects for artists like Cassie, Machine Gun Kelly, French Montana, and Janelle Monae. He appeared again as an artist on the successful, Dirty Money project, which included Dawn and Kaleena. Diddy continued his entrepreneurial journey with Ciroc vodka and now a live-stream cable network, REVOLT.
Over close to two decades, Diddy’s interest in music slowly fell to the back. As a CEO with less time to spare, he may have expected his team at Bad Boy to remain hungry and work hard to maintain the legacy. But, was it too late? As a brand, was Bad Boy’s alleged “bad business” reputation too much to overcome? Being the intelligent businessman that he is, consolidating selected Bad Boy employees with the REVOLT team was probably the best move. REVOLT represents a new era in Diddy’s life. By putting all his efforts into this network, there’s a greater opportunity to showcase artists and their music.
WHAT DO YOU THINK? WAS CLOSING BAD BOY RECORDS THE BEST THING TO DO?
According to XXL, a Bad Boy rep disputed the rumors that hit the internet yesterday (Jan. 30). The rep told the magazine, “Bad Boy shutting down is nothing more than rumors,” and “isn’t true.” Well, I guess that puts that rumor to rest. But, the question remains…is the label worth savaging? Yes, there is a lot of history there. But, can the brand hold up on its own and return to its old glory? It’s going to be interesting to see how P.Diddy revamp Bad Boy Records.
Some things you hear about is just makes you sick to the stomach….
Natisha Hillard, 25 year old Gary, Indiana native, was recently arrested for selling her baby to a man to have sex with. The Gary, Indiana native expressed to the judge that she did it because she needed the cash to pay rent. Federal authorities says Hillard sold the child to 40-year old Christopher Bour several times up until the child turned 16 months old.
Bour became a suspect when a massuese saw child pornography video on his computer during a session. Later on, he even asked the massuse to take pictures of him having sex with the baby. He also told her that “it’s thebest sex I ever had”.
The childs mother, Hillard, confessed that she was actually in the room at least seven times when Bour sexually molested the baby. She even allowed him once to take a picture of him and the baby.
The two met through a dating service. Hillard later introduced Bour to her two kids, the baby and her 3 year old daughter. Bour also had pictures of the daughter naked.
Hillard faces 30 years to life. Bour is due in court on Thursday to plead guilty for his charges, which includes: buying a child to produce child pornography, producing child pornography, and possession of child pornography of a child under the age of 12.
The Ratchet Report: Gosselin Twins Embarrass Mom, Bieber’s Home Raided by LAPD, & ‘Girls’ Lena Dunham #EPICFAIL Globes Look
Kate Gosselin is humiliated by her children on national TV…. Kate Gosselin well known reality star for being the mother of eight children appeared on the “Today” show with her children. The original show “Jon and Kate Plus 8” spotlighted the Gosselin’s all American family from 2007-2009 and went on break after problems in the couple’s marriage.

HA HA HA…. When keeping it real goes wrong!
Justin Bieber in trouble with the Law again…. Justin Beiber’s LA home was recently raided by LAPD detectives after a search warrant was executed. Initially the detectives issued the warrant after an incident that allegedly involved Bieber throwing eggs at his neighbor’s home. LA FOX news station reported 12 detectives in 8 patrol cars showed up at Beiber’s residence in Calabasas, California. When the detectives arrived, they reported that they noticed what appeared to be a controlled illegal substance “in plain sight.” Long time friend and known rapper Lil Za was the only person arrested during the search for narcotics possession. Lt. Thompson of the LAPD made a statement to LA FOX news, “None of this has anything to do with him being a celebrity. This is a felony crime that we determined had evidence,” he said. “We would do this same level of investigation to anyone.” The cops also seized Beiber’s phone with hopes of finding information that would link him to the egging, however he is more concerned about private naked pictures.
I guess the yokes on you Bieber….
2014 Golden Globes “HOTT Mess” Worst Dress
The best of the worst dresses for the 2014 Golden Globes…. Flash Flash, Click, Click you should fire your stylist for putting you in that Shhh! We have all been watching the Golden Globes for years and the best part has been the Red Carpet. Wither you win an award or not, on this momentous star studded occasion, at least you have the opportunity to show your fans and the millions of potential fans that you are on point. Each year stars walk the Red Carpet with nice suits, tuxedos, gowns or simple fashion but each year we have a few that fail to hit the mark. This year there were several worst dressed celebrities but one in particular that should be acknowledged is Lena Dunham. Lena Dunham is an actress and filmmaker that produced and wrote the HBO film “Tiny Furniture.”
Better luck next year Lena Dunham…you may not have received a 2014 Golden Globe but you did win the Tacky Award!
This week the “Really Award” goes to Lena Dunhan. Can you say #EpicFail? The true essence of “Ratchet” in all sense of the word.
According to the New York Times, sources say Trayvon Martin’s parents (Sybrina Fulton & Tracy Martin) may soon pen a book. The two recently met with publishers in New York to discuss details regarding the books’ subject.
It is believed that the book will recount Sybrina and Tracy’s daily lives after the untimely death of their son. The book is also likely to contain scripture references as spirituality was evidently the driving force for mother and father.
No word yet on when the two will begin working on the book.
Trayvon Martin was killed in February 2012 by neighborhood watchman, George Zimmerman. Zimmerman was later acquitted of the teenagers death.
Gucci Mane Files Lawsuit Against Waka Flocka, Deb Antney, Zaytoven & Others for Fraud & Racketeering
Radric Davis also known as “Gucci Mane” has filed a lawsuit against his former manager and artist. Besides Jaquin “Waka Flocka Flame” Malphurs and Debra Antney, the lawsuit also names other talents associated with his 1017 Records, LLC. His longtime producer pal Xavier “Zaytoven” Dodson, Otis “OJ da Juiceman” Jones, Jr., and Khia Stone are the other defendants named in the lawsuit.
The news comes a month or so after being jailed for violation of probation. The incident that landed him in jail occurred shortly after a public out-lash against several of his music peers on Twitter. He later blamed the outburst on his drug addiction and a former manager for the not-so -politically correct tweets.
The feud between Gucci Mane and his artist Waka Flocka has been ongoing for quite some time. He announced that he was dropping Waka from his label and that any other label can buy him for $1 million. So, this new lawsuit isn’t really a surprise.
According to AJC…
The lawsuit claims that Antney took control of the company and along with Malphurs and Stone spawned at least three separate companies without Davis’ consent and, for Malphurs, in direct violation of his artist’s contract.
The complaint claims that Antney stole a ring and necklace from Davis, failed to report tax information on her income, and seized control of his money and assets and used them for herself.
The lawsuit also accuses her of fraudulently inflating the costs of certain record label expenses and using the excess for personal gain.
The group withheld payments and royalties from Davis and Armour as well as records and information about the business of the company, the lawsuit alleges.
“Defendants’ misrepresentations and omissions were made with the intent that plaintiffs rely upon them,” the lawsuit reads. “The plaintiffs relied on the representations and would not have entrusted (the) defendants with their careers and livelihoods otherwise.”
Story still developing…
If you want to party hard with Justin Bieber, you better know how to keep your mouth shut.
According to several reports, Bieber has recently caught a lot of crap from people snitching on him. So, in effort to keep the snitching to a minimum, Bieber threw a big party at his Calabasus, California home and insisted that EVERYONE sign a confidentiality agreement. From the young chicks to the security guy, every person that step foot inside his party had to put down their John Hancock.
In the agreement, partygoers were asked to refrain from texting, tweeting, taking photos, video recording, etc. It is rumored that his $3 million sanction is actually much cheaper than what he has included in the “no snitching” contract in the past. Some say he’s threatened “talkers” with a $5 million sanction at once upon a time.
Regardless of the confidentiality agreement, it is being reported that the police were called out to Bieber’s crib at least three separate times during this most recent party. Neighbors complained about the excessive noise and lingering smell of marijuana.
No arrest were made, however, the police did issue Bieber a citation for disturbing the peace.
Damn Lady GaGa…
The fashionably courageous and talented Lady GaGa couldn’t use her best costume to save her this time. According to the charts, her latest album release ArtPop only secured 260,000 copies sold in its first week. Although fans and other alternative music lovers say her album is good, to her record label the project was a major #FAIL.
Lady GaGa’s last album Born This Way sold over $1 million copies in one week, due largely to a great marketing strategy of selling it on Amazon for just .99 cent. In addition, since her first release in 2008, GaGa has sold over 24 million albums and 125 million singles worldwide. So, what the hell happened this time around?
Some blame the lack of promotion behind ArtPop. But, insiders say that Interscope Records set aside $25 million to help push the project. With hardly any records sold, the record label is being forced to take a loss. When that happens, most companies have no choice but to lay off employees. Because of Lady GaGa’s flop, it is expected that up to 50 or so employees will be let go before the holidays.
Pebbles interview with Wendy Williams last week proved that: 1) Pebbles indeed carried Chanel purses all the time as the TLC biopic reflected, 2) A gag order is preventing her from truly telling her side of the story, 3) She’s pissed off at VH1 too and has plans to take them to court, 4) Condones her daughter’s hatred against Chilli.
Everyone who has followed the TLC story for twenty years expected there to be some backlash from their former manager, but never to this extent. The portrayal of Pebbles in the VH1 biopic, “Crazy Sexy Cool: The TLC Story”, is all a bunch of lies according to the former label executive. She’s clearly on a mission to save what little bit of “good” reputation she has left by appearing on various media shows.
On “The Wendy Williams Show“, Pebbles was given the opportunity to appear and dispel any falsehoods shown in the film. Doing what Wendy is known for, she went straight in for the kill and asked Pebbles the questions that everyone wanted answers for. What Wendy and the viewers didn’t expect is that most of the questions asked would be shot down due to confidentiality agreements and gag orders. Pebbles, honestly, took up air time for no reason at all. Why was she even on the show if she couldn’t directly answer the questions??
Anyway, after the interview, Chilli and T-Boz quickly rebutted some of the things Pebbles did reveal on Wendy’s show. First, the girls released an official statement in denial of the Pebbles allegations that Chilli and L.A. Reid had a sexual encounter back in the day.
“No member of TLC ever slept with or had sexual contact with LA Reid as Perri falsely accused Chilli of on “The Wendy Williams Show.” In fact, Perri had falsely allege the same thing happened with Tionne.”
Pebbles also denied that she solely made the decision to kick Chilli out the group. And that, in fact, it was T-Boz and Left-Eye who decided that they wanted Chilli out because of her constant fraternizing with the “help” [Dallas Austin].
“I would like to confirm that Perri Reid was the only person who ever suggested that Chilli leave TLC. Neither Lisa nor I ever wanted or suggested that.”
At this point, no one knows who is speaking the truth or not. The only thing that we can confirm is that the movie is based on Chilli and T-Boz’s recounts of their past. The film was presented as their “truth”, so how can anyone dispute that.
The pending legal actions against the girls and VH1 is all talk until proved otherwise. If we believe Pebbles, however, she is going to sue so that she can clear her name and make some extra cash while doing it. And that’s not it! During her sit down with Wendy, she stated that she’s working on a book and certain things will be spelled out in detail on what happened between her, TLC and L.A. Reid.
SMH…the saga continues.
Jay Z is undeniably one of the most diversified entertainers when it comes to the businesses he ventures into. As such, it wasn’t the biggest surprise when he launched a sports management agency. With the building of the Barclay Center and recent acquisitions of high profile athletes, Jay Z is determined to leave his mark on the sports world.
Unfortunately, with much reward comes issues. Jay Z is rumored to be under investigation by the Major League Baseball Players Association. According to the regulations of the MLBPA, a sports agents are not supposed to give gifts are money to a player. This tactic is considered a form of persuasion to get that player to continue his representation agreement with that agency. This is exactly what the MLBPA believes happened in the case of New York Yankee Robinson Cano.
In October 2013, Jay Z presented Cano with a Hublot one-of-a-kind ‘Shawn Carter Classic Fusion’ $34,000.00 watch. The watch was given to Cano during his 31st birthday celebration in Belgium. Regulations specify that players who are already clients, should only receive gifts (over $500) after the union has been notified in writing. Jay Z did not do this.
The MLBPA doesn’t deny or confirm that an investigation is taking place. A representative stated that internal matters are not made public.
A spokesperson for Roc Nation sports agency has not responded to these allegations either.
We’ll keep you updated as more information is released.
Artist Mgr ‘Jimmy Henchman’ Rosemond Sentenced to Life + Guerilla Black Gets 9 Years for Credit Card Fraud
Talk about being on their worst behavior…
Last week, an U.S. District Court Judge handed down a life sentence to veteran music manager James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond. Rosemond was found guilty last year for his top-tier involvement in a multi-million dollar drug trafficking ring. The judge believe a life sentence is justified considering the level and intricacies of Henchman’ s drug operation.
“Not all kingpins deserve this, but you certainly do.” Describing Rosemond’s narcotics ring as “astounding in breadth, duration, and intensity,” Gleeson declared that, “You chose this life. And this is the punishment you get,” stated Judge John Gleeson.
If you recall in our September 2011 write-up, Henchman’s operation involved a lot of movement from New York to L.A. and back. The operation took extensive planning, people and resources in order to pull it off for as long as it did. Authorities were surprised at how well thought out Henchman’s operation was.
“According to a report published by the infamous The Smoking Gun website, a shipping company called Rock-It Cargo delivered and received several music cases allegedly containing drugs between 2010 and 2011. The cases were said to have been transported from Interscope’s Los Angeles office to a New York studio. TSG’s report goes on to say that the shipments were delivered to New York and Mr. Rosemonds’ associates would distribute and sale the drugs. The money made from the drugs were then shipped back to L.A. to the Interscope office.” [FULL ARTICLE: Interscope Offices Used As Transport Sport for Drug Trafficking Ring?]
Jimmy Henchman will return to court soon to face another federal indictment for his involvement in a 2009 murder. Law enforcement believe Henchman put a contract hit out on Lovell Fletcher, an industry rival whom Henchman claims assaulted his young son. This trial is set to begin next month.
Henchman was a notable individual in the music industry. He is most well-known for managing artists like Too Short, The Game, and Brandy. He also was involved in the business lives of Mike Tyson, Wyclef Jean, and Rev. Al Sharpton.

Guerilla Black, a one-hit wonder rapper from L.A., was sentenced to 9 years in the federal pen. The 35 year old rapper, who’s best known for his 2004 song “Compton” featuring Beenie Man, was taken into custody in early this year for credit card fraud. According to reports, Black faced a host of charges including identity theft, bank fraud, access device fraud, and unauthorized access to a protected computer (in which he committed fraud with). He generated over $150,000 in stolen funds through cards with credit card numbers solicited from hackers in Seattle, Washington.
To start, this is not a post to bash Chris Brown. This is merely an opinion on why his career may soon see its demise.
Over the weekend in D.C., Chris Brown was arrested for allegedly assaulting a man outside of a Washington hotel. The victim was admitted to a nearby hospital and treated for several injuries. Authorities have not released the details of the injuries or his name. But, reports say the assault occurred during a fight that broke out in the midst of Howard Homecoming weekend festivities. Brown was in town to perform at a local club. The school says it was not affiliated with the club party that Brown was to appear.
This arrest is the latest addition to Brown’s list of legal troubles. What is the problem though? Where was the security team that is supposed to protect and prevent him from getting into any altercations? Does Chris still deal with anger management issues? These are a host of questions that a lot of people are pondering. But, the question I keep asking myself is “what is his team doing to prevent situations like this?”
It is clear that Brown deals with his own personal issues. And yes, he is human and chooses to handle situations the way he sees fit. But, at some point, the label or management should be held to some level of accountability. I mean, they are making money off the singer…right?!!
Brown is still on probation from Rihanna’s ordeal. So, those who are apart of his entourage is supposed to take extra strides in making sure he doesn’t get in any trouble. Where were these people when the D.C. fight broke out? Why didn’t his security team step in and do their job?
Only those who were present (and the police) knows what really happened. But, regardless, why was Chris Brown one of the ones to be arrested? He has the most the lose out of anyone. As a “team”, you never supposed to let your star player fall from grace. He’s the money maker. He feeds all of them. Only a hater or jealous team member would set their leader up for failure. IJS…
Hey Chris Brown! You need to reevaluate who is on your team. It is looking like they’re trying to knock you out the game and…UOENO it!
A 33-year old Los Angeles man took his infatuation with pop-star Justin Bieber a little too serious. According to reports, Toby Sheldon set out on this journey in hopes of regaining his youthfulness. Sheldon first began his transformation with hair-thinning transplants, which costs $8,000. The total hair transplant procedure cost him $21,000 after three sessions. Ultimately, Sheldon had his hair line lowered.
The songwriter also spent $5,000 on eyelid surgery. His most recent procedure affected the mouth area – a three part smile surgery. In total, Sheldon has spent over $100,000 in surgeries and says more will occur. Other procedures such as jaw reduction and a nose job will be done in order for Sheldon to achieve Bieber’s boyish looks.
Sheldon claims that he is not the biggest Bieber fan, as many may speculate for undergoing such an expensive route to look the pop star. However, he sites his phobia with getting old and looking it as the main reason behind the surgeries.
Really dude?!! SMH…some people have nothing better else to do with their money. And he doesn’t even look like Justin Bieber after the surgery, not even remotely.

Monique Mosley, wife of Timbaland, says pay up! Timbaland, a popular music mogul who has produced for great artists such as Missy, Jay Z and Justin Timberlake, is worth a reported $80 million. His wife Monique of 5 years and girlfriend of 10, filed for divorce and wants support for her child from a previous relationship. Apparently Monique said she is so low on cash that she had to borrow money for attorney fees. She is seeking a lump sum of money during the divorce hearings and alimony for a life-time.
I’m not sure how this is going to play out but for anybody reading this and who has a acquired a fortune before they get married please consider a prenup. God forbid that anything happens and people have to get divorced , but this goes for both men and women, we all should protect our assets people.
Divorces Round 2: Wife of Paul Hogan aka “Crocodile Dundee” Files for Divorce
Paul Hogan aka “Crocodile Dundee” is getting divorced for the 2nd time. Linda Hogan filed for divorce after 23-years of marriage to her husband. The couple played alongside each other in the legendary movie “Crocodile Dundee”. Linda requested that her name to be changed back to her original maiden name, spousal support and joint legal custody of Chance the couple’s 15 year old son. Paul Hogan went through his first nasty divorce in the 80’s in his native home of Australia.
There must be something brewing in the air because over the past few months’ celebrity couples have been calling it quits and not playing fair. The man we all know and love as ‘Crocodile Dundee” is soon to be just a “Croc” after he ends up giving up half of his $20 million empire. Again, where are the prenups???
Divorces Round 3: Wife of Master P Files for Divorce

The couple has been separated for a while and has had marital issues for years before the final decision to call it off. The couple has 4 children together but could never get around their differences.
I guess the legend Tina Turner said it best “What’s love got to do with It”. Again, where are the prenups???
This week the “Really Award” goes to the “Attorney’s” of Timbaland, Paul Hogan aka “Crocodile Dundee” and Master P. I must say these attorney’s deserve a pat on the back.

YALE University Poop Bandit
Students in YALE are falling victim of the poop bandit. Yale Daily News, reported they received three complaints that students laundry have been popped in. One victim of this horrific event went as far as taking the feces out of the dryer and taking it to the College Masters office to show her frustration. Students have decided to take a stand and take shifts watching the laundry room in efforts to support each other and not have the same thing keep happening.
SMDH, regardless of where this stupidity happened it’s ignorant and low on some many levels. With everything that’s going on in the world people would waist energy taking craps in people’s laundry. Some people have way too much time on their hands. Please do something more productive like trying to get a life!
Jermaine Jackson buys a $160,000 Ferrari but in debt
Jermaine Jackson is falling but still balling. Apparently, Jermaine Jackson feels like the male version on NeNe Leaks ’cause they both want to show the world that they are “Rich B—h”. The former Jackson Five member and brother of famous icon Michael Jackson was reported buying a $160,000 Ferrari but is in debt nor has he paid his child support. TMZ reports that Mother Katherine Jackson was furious that her son is making such poor financial and responsibility decisions. Mother Katherine was also reported helping the mother of Jermaine’s youngest child financially.
Jermaine is definitely a legend in the music industry, but obviously a dead beat in real time. How could any real man purchase a $160,000 car and his child and ex-wife are broke and living with his mama…. Really Jermaine?
Friday Marks the last day of pay for many Fed Workers
Worse news is that it’s been a little over 10 days since the Government shut-down. Regardless of whose popularity rating is going up, the American people are suffering. NBC news polls reported that most Americans want to vote out the whole Congress. This Friday is the last day of pay for some Government workers which may cause a rippling effect in the economy and could potentially raise crime rates. Government workers that don’t have savings and were blindsided from the shutdown have no clue when they will see another check. NBC interviewed an Arlington, VA furloughed federal worker named Lisa and she stated “I could only pay half of my October rent so that I would have money to get groceries until my next and possibly last check.”
We shouldn’t be pledging allegiance to a land of lies, broken promises and a government that has constantly defrauded the nation.
This week the “Really Award” goes to the “Government” for not even considering the people that voted for you and will eventually turn the tables during the next elections. Congratulations Government! You didn’t think this thing out ’cause pay back is you being voted out and you too will be unemployed.

Charlese Brooks, also known as “Ms. Atlanta”, was pronounced dead in front of a East Atlanta restaurant on Tuesday evening.
News reports revealed that the 34-year old businesswoman and mother of 10 was shot several times after trying to play peacemaker to two women who were in a heated argument. The altercation took place in front of Brick House Restaurant on Bouldercrest Road. The women were arguing apparently over an alleged text message. Brooks tried to break up the altercation.
One of the women left the scene to later return and began firing. Several gunshots hit Brooks. A cousin of Brooks said that she tried to resuscitate by performing CPR, but to no avail. No others were hit.
The gunman immediately fled the scene but later turned herself in to authorities.
Terri Chimon Williams is now charged with Brook’s murder. However, her attorney W. Scott Smith says that more information will come out in court that will prove her innocence.
Family and close friends of “Beasley” (a name in which they called her) all say that she was a beautiful spirit and always willing to help others. Brooks even took on guardianship of five boys and one girl while still raising her four biological kids. Outside of the family unit, Brooks owned several businesses in Atlanta – tax preparation, truck rental, and a used car dealership.
She also was well-known on the music scene, seen around town with artists like Future and Gucci Mane. “Ms. Atlanta” also released a song featuring Gucci Mane called “Who Is Ms. Atlanta?” back in 2010/2011.
As a supporter of music and female entrepreneurship, STACKS Magazine would like to send out deepest condolences to the family of Charlese Brooks. May her soul rest in peace.

O.J. Simpson is back in the News…. O.J. Simpson has been in the news a lot frequently since being acquitted of the 1994 double murders of his ex-wife Nicole Brown-Simpson and friend Ronald Goldman. O.J. was later arrested and convicted of the 2008 felony armed robbery and kidnapping charges and sentenced to 33 years. Fox News radio reported that O.J. was allegedly caught stealing cookies from Lovelock Correctional Center in Pershing County where is serving his full sentence. Simpson confessed after a guard confronted him after noticing he was hiding something under his prison clothes.
Why, why, why, O.J?!! Is it not enough that you will be serving the remainder of your life behind bars but to add a petty cookie theft is just plain dumb….
Raised Credit Interest Rates and No Jobs
Credit card rates may go up real soon. The Government shut down has caused a rippling effect to the public from federal agency employees being out of employment to tight stipulations on Credit cards holders. Apparently the Treasury is scheduled to ask investors for $120 billion in loans in the next two weeks. Investors aren’t so sure that (do to the economy) that the government will be able to pay back the loan. So, the American people may pay the price. Investors raised interest rates that affected the economy in 95-96 lasted 28 days.
The government is being so selfish and ignorant to try to prove a point by having a pissing match. Children are suffering and families are out of work trying to figure out how they plan to survive until the government decides to wake up and serve the country properly with…ethics.
Feb 8th baby slapper pleads guilty to simple assault…. Joe Rickey Hundley slapped a 19-month year old baby boy after making a racial slur on a Delta flight from Minneapolis to Atlanta airport. Based on statements from the FBI investigation, Hundley was reportedly not happy about the child on the plane and inquired about the child lap policy. The mother of the child moved to another part of the plane but as it was preparing to land, she moved back to her original seat. As the plane landed, the baby began to cry and Hundley called the child the (N)word twice after being confronted by the parent. Hundley has recently pleaded guilty for an simple assault charge.
So we all know that no matter how people try to sweep the topic under the rug but racism is still real. But regardless of anything, any adult that slaps an innocent child should be tied up and slapped repeatedly and then put in an empty jail cell without any human contact for 6 months. But that’s just my opinion….
For the first time ever, this weeks “Really Award” is a tie between the racist baby slapper Joe Rickey Hundley for just being a “jerk” and The Government for just being a “jerk”. Congratulations “Jerks” I’m done…

Mark Cuban, the outspoken billionaire and owner of the Dallas Mavericks, may be facing a hefty fine if found guilty of insider-trading.
Insider trading is the trading of a public company’s stock or other securities (such as bonds or stock options) by individuals with access to non-public information about the company. In various countries insider trading based on inside information is illegal. This is because it is seen as being unfair to other investors who do not have access to the information.
News broke last night that the “Shark Tank” panelist is in hot water with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Apparently, Cuban once owned shares in an Canadian-based search engine company and allegedly sold his shares of stock after he learned that Mamma.com was going to hold an offering. Cuban owned 6 percent of all shares and greedily wanted to protect his money. But, the SEC says that was illegal to sell his shares.
The SEC claims that Cuban promised to not sell his shares. SEC lawyer Jan Felona insists that Cuban violated the law and should face a penalty (not jail time). Felona also believes that it was Cuban’s own inner will to “win” that drove him to committing this federal crime. According to the SEC, Cuban could face a $750,000 fine equivalent to the value of his shares and a penalty fine of $1,500,000.
But, Cuban’s attorney Thomas Melsheimer disputes these allegations.
One of Cuban’s lawyers said that the SEC’s chief witness was lying, and portrayed the case as government overreach.
Cuban ”is going to stand up to them when they call him a liar, he’s going to stand up to them when they call him a cheat,” said the lawyer, Thomas Melsheimer. The government, he said, ”can’t prove a lick” of its case.
Court proceedings began Tuesday morning and could last up to three weeks.
Ok. This is beginning to be a bit much.
Shortly after Joe Odom went on a verbal rampage against the Kardashians in the media, his son contacted him with a verbal assault of his own. According to TMZ, Joe says that Lamar called him pissed off about the things he’d said about him and his relationship with the Kardashians. Joe’s remarks didn’t sit too well with his son. So, to retaliate, Lamar is now refusing to continuing supporting his father.
Joe says that Lamar will no longer pay his $2,900 rent and that he’ll be soon kicked out of his apartment. He anticipates being out on the street by the end of next month.
Do you think Lamar’s refusal is justified? I mean, it’s a shame that will allow his pops to be back out on the streets. With Joe’s history of drug abuse, not being in a safe and healthy environment is the last place he needs to be.
Well, Gucci Mane will be returning to jail to serve some real time y’all. Word around the internet is that on Friday, September 27 a Fulton County judge sentenced the rapper with 183 days in jail. Gucci has been charged with probation violation stemming from previous incidents.
A couple weeks ago, Gucci Mane was out of control on Twitter, in the mall, and later in the streets in which he was later arrested for gun possession, disorderly conduct, and several other charges. The rapper has been known to suffer from dug addiction and allegedly some form of mental illness. He later admitted that the “lean” drug was the cause of his recent outburst and antics. Unfortunately, the drug got the best of Guwop and now he’s headed back to jail.
According to the court documents below, Gucci Mane faces 5 additional charges. If found guilty, we may not see or hear any of Gucci’s for quite some time.
Pray for Gucci yall!
If this isn’t the nastiest and deadliest physical reaction to a drug we’ve ever seen… GROSS!
According to news reports, two cases have been reported in Arizona of drug users who has suffered skin damage due to a new drug on the scene. The drug is called “Krokodil” has caused many deaths because of its deadly mixture of codeine, paint thinner, gasoline, iodine, red phosphorous, and hydrochloric acid. This drug was first discovered in Russia in 2002 and has plagued the country every since. It is believed that over 3 million people use or has used the drug worldwide.
Krokodil is said to be stronger and deadlier than Heroin. Its damaging affects to the human skin is what makes this drug so dangerous. Coined as “the drug that eats junkies”, the two Arizona cases is the first of its kind here in the United States. Officials are very concerned that this drug will become widespread soon.
Watch the video below (warning this is graphic!!!):
That damn K. Michelle know she tickles me. LOL
Earlier Tuesday, news broke that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) was looking for the “Love & Hip Hop” star for debt she collected back in 2008 and 2009. In comparison to other celebrities we’ve mentioned on our site before as being culprits of not filing tax returns, K. Michelle’s amount of debt didn’t seem quite so bad.
According to the TMZ, the R&B singer had failed to file her taxes in 2008 which over the years garnered some interest totaling $47,700. Also, she owed $4,700 from 2009. But, K. Michelle took to her Twitter to tell fans that this information was ALL false. In fact, she claimed that YES she has paid off her debt.
“Damn Uncle Sam Why you wanna stick me 4my paper???? Lol. Nice try Bloggers it’s already been settle. Strippers need tax breaks to,” she wrote. (via AllHipHop.com)
She sure did nip that in the bud real quick! Good to see that she’s on top of her financial responsibilities…unlike many others we know.

Lamar Odom is back in the news… Even after his DUI arrest and reports of him checking out of a rehab clinic, Odom was spotted leaving a CVS with a popular homemade crack pipe ingredient. Sources from TMZ reported that Odom was caught on camera coming out of a CVS with the Chore Boy, a copper scrubbing pad that is used to make crack pipes. Although Odom’s driver was holding the bag with the ingredient, reports are speculating that the ingredient had to belong to Odom based on his allegations of drug addiction.
I’m not the sharpest knife in the draw, but if I had the money and resources that Lamar Odom has, there is no way that I would be going to the store and spotted with anything that could incriminate my character. Even if he was allegedly buying Chore Boy for the purposes of making his own crack pipe, why would he go get it himself? Things that make you say hmmmm. Haven’t we learned from the late great Whitney Houston? Deny Deny Deny “Crack is cheap” !
Suge Knight arrested for the…. Well who’s counting….Reports hit the media that Suge Knight was arrested on Wednesday 9/11 for driving with a suspended license. He was pulled over around 12:30am after a LAPD officer noticed Suge allegedly riding two lanes. Although he was sober, Suge didn’t have a license plate on the back of his truck which also raised suspicions from cops. Suge was taken into custody and released on a $20,000 bail.
The well-known producer and CEO of Def Row Records is worth a reported $200,000 and influential in the careers of artist such as Dr. Dre, Tupac Shakur and Snoop Dogg. If you have never been to LA, then believe me when I say it’s not a place for Black men under the microscope to get caught slipping. With Suge’s estimated net worth, I’m sure he could have hired a driver or caught a cab however that wasn’t the case in this situation.
Anthony Weiner may have lost the race but still gave the cameras his number one finger!! Weiner lost the New York mayoral race but instead of giving his full concession speech he decided to storm of stage at his election party and flip the cameras the bird. Reporters stated that they weren’t sure if the finger was intended for the press however he has had a string of not so good media.
Weiner was most known for being involved with former sexting partner, Sydney Leathers and a former intern who wrote a tell all book. In my opinion with all of Weiner scandals, this is a piece of cake.
This week “Really Award” goes to Anthony Weiner for flipping off the American public. Does he think he has a chance to run for office again?? If he does, then Good Luck!

LAWD! Well, it is safe to say that legendary DJ Mr. (or Mister) Cee didn’t learn his lesson or received enough treatment after admitting he had an addiction.
Now, news has spread rampant across the music world that Mr. Cee has now officially resigned from his position at Hot 97 NY. Apparently, he recently solicited oral sex from a transsexual prostitute. But, little did know he that the tranney he solicited was a well-known Youtube blogger by the name of Bimbo Winehouse. Bimbo was able to catch audio of the entire order on tape.
On the audio footage, you can hear bits of Mister Cee’s voice offering Bimbo $100 for oral. The two spent time riding around NY trying to find a safe spot (or block) to get the job done. Unfortunately, Bimbo is not actually a prostitute but was quick on his feet when he realized that he was solicited by the DJ. In the audio, Bimbo says he didn’t give oral to the DJ after-all (some may want to dispute that, since there are random breaks in the audio). However, the audi0 hit the internet and has since been heard by the DJ and his employer.
Mister Cee announced his resignation yesterday. “It’s time 4 me to…take care of myself b/c there r situations when i try to do the rt thing, a setback happens.”
Listen to the audio below:
Was it a set-up? Hmmm…no one knows for sure. But, it does seem a little fishy that he would blatantly hop in the car with dude (knowing who he was) and then get out the car at the end and say the man’s name out loud. *side eye*
Anywho, this is sad. SMH…you would think that after the third incident he’d get it together by seeking some “real” help with his addiction. It is very unfortunate for his life to play out like this in front of his peers and the world.
I swear some stuff you read on the internet just make you shake your head.
According to a strange article on AJC.com , school teachers across the U.S. are turning to the internet for extra money.
The service SeekingArrangement is a nationwide online “dating” service that matches “Sugar Daddies” with “Sugar Babies,” many of whom are college students trading their youth, beauty and attention, sexual and otherwise, for cash and other expressions of gratitude from wealthy men in what the company calls “mutually beneficial” relationships.
The founder of the dating service connects the rise in teacher “Sugar Babies” to classroom cuts and decries that teachers have to reach into their own pockets – or those of Sugar Daddies” — to pay for classroom supplies. According to the company, the average registered public school teacher on the site is between the ages of 28 and 33 and asks for $3000 a month in financial assistance.
Here is the official release from the company:
Is Daddy hot for teacher? 40,000 public school teachers are currently seeking financial assistance from sugar daddies according to SeekingArrangement.com.
Atlanta School Public School System ranks high for employing teachers who are moonlighting as Sugar Babies with 311 teachers.
Top Five School Districts For Sugar Teachers
1. Philadelphia City School District
2. Miami-Dade School District
3. Los Angeles County School District
4. Clark County School District
5. New York Public School System
The Sugar Daddy dating website released the statistic after noticing an influx of teachers signing up last month, prior to heading back to school.
“It’s unfortunate what is happening in the American public school systems,” comments Brandon Wade, Founder & CEO of SeekingArrangement.com. “Teachers are placed under enormous pressures to mold the young minds of tomorrow, but are expected to do so with less wages than their peers, and by working longer hours. Then those same teachers are forced to work in underfunded schools, and marginally supplied classrooms.”
The National School Supply and Equipment Association published their annual study in June about teachers’ out-of-pocket spending, reporting that the average teacher spent at least $485 on school supplies for their classroom last year. Meanwhile, the Economic Policy Institute reports that from the period of 1979 to 2003, weekly wages of female teachers have eroded at a rate of 18.5% when compared to other similarly educated and experienced workers.
So, are teachers out here “hoe-ing” for extra cash to buy school supplies? Apparently, they are. SMH. What is the world coming to?
Rumors are swirling around about how not only is he one of the best lyricist ever, but Jay-Z is a great boss too.
According to Allhiphop.com…
Jay Z is making it rain! Fresh off the release of his 12th solo album. Magna Carta…Holy Grail, the music and business mogul has been showing his gratitude with lots of zeros. “Earlier this year he handed out $50,000 bonuses to everyone in his company, which includes assistants and very low-level people,” a Jay Z employee tells Star. “He even promised another bonus for Christmas.”
“He’s extremely generous – most celebrities are super cheap when it comes to running their businesses,” says the insider. “He knows if his employees are happy, it will benefit him in the long run. His only demand was for everyone to have fun with the money.”
This is so very true. Most companies that suffer losses or unmotivated workers are ones that don’t appreciate their workforce. Employees who are given incentives, good health benefits, etc are usually thankful for their job and are willing to put in the extra work to get the job done. So kudos to Jay-Z! If this is true, he truly understands what it means to be an “overall” great person and businessman.
