-Fraudulent rapper (and former C.O.) Rick Ross is being sued by (the real) Ricky Ross. I was wondering when it would come to this. It is one of the most glaring examples of how fake the rap music industry is when a former prison guard can take on the name and persona of perhaps the most famous American drug dealer, start repping Piru, and be acclaimed by his peers as keeping it real.

- Tattoos are forever, right? Not if you are rich enough. Pharrell Williams and 50Cent have both recently had their tattoos they oh-so-flaunted removed. Pharrell plans on getting new ones he likes better. Just like changing his shirt.
