Nelly Furtado And Timbaland Dodge Multi-Million Dollar Lawsuit [Audio]

Judge Tosses Lawsuit Against Timbaland, Nelly Furtado
A Miami judge has thrown out a lawsuit levied against Timbaland and Nelly Furtado by a record label claiming the duo stole their song.
Originally filed back in 2009 by Finnish label Kernal Records Oy, the suit contends that Tim and Furtado took elements of their artists song “Acid Jazzed Evening” and unlawfully used it on the 2006 Furtado song “Do It.”
Tim appeared to get off on a technicality.
Kernal originally claimed “Acid Jazzed Evening,” was published on Australian disk magazine Vandalism News in 2002 and posted to the Internet later that year.
The just of the case came down to, “whether the European tracks were first published on the Internet or in Europe.”
US Copyright laws stipulate, “music published first on the Internet is considered U.S.-created and must be copyrighted to be protected.”
Kernal failed to copyright the song before filing the suit in which they were seeking $10 - $20 million in damages.
"We're very happy," said Timbaland representative Karen Stetson. "We thought from the beginning that this issue was an important one and followed the plain language of the federal Copyright Act. But the other side was trying to get away from the plain language of the Copyright Act."
Kernal plans to appeal the judges ruling.
A YouTube video is circulating the net comparing both songs and shows that both sound strikingly similar.
Listen to "Do It" compared to "Acid Jazzed Evening" below.

LaToya Jackson Ponders “Who Killed MJ” In Upcoming Memoir

La Toya Questions Michael's Death In New Book
La Toya Jackson has a new book hitting bookstores next week and in part of it, questions the motives surrounding the death of her famous brother Michael.
In her memoir Starting Over La Toya writes that she confronted Dr. Conrad Murray in the ER shortly after Michael's death and the medical practitioner only gave her, “evasion and excuses.”
She penned that she found Michael's bedroom “torn to pieces” following his death and found  notes that signified the pop star wanted his father's help ridding “these people out of my life” and that he had “only agreed to 10 shows.”
Michael was scheduled to kick off his comeback with a 50 show concert at The O2 Arena in London at the time of his death.
La Toya has been suspicious of ulterior motives to her brother's death since he over dosed on June 25, 2009.
She writes that she heard from family and friends who were fearful for MJ's well being during his last days.
Michael's brother Jermaine has also penned a book scheduled for release in September.

Money Mayweather, who is being sued over statements accusing Filipino boxer of using performance-enhancing drugs, must give testimony today (June 17).

Floyd is scheduled for a fight with Victor Ortiz, September 17.

Montel Williams Opens Up Weed Spot In Sacramento

Montel Williams Opens Up Pot Shop In Sacramento
Sometimes hosting a television show can get stressful and after years of dealing with illness, Montel Williams is not only becoming an advocate of medical marijuana, he's about to sell it.
Claiming prescription drugs almost shut down his kidneys, Williams was given the suggestion by a doctor to try some cannabis sativa and it worked for him.
“We've been caught up in culture surrounding medical marijuana that's 20 years old,” Williams said. “While adhering to every single state law, we want to provide safe access for patients and really medicalize this. Patients should be put first.”
The Abatin Wellness Cooperative facility is heavily monitored by cameras, no weed can be consumed on the property and the "medicine" isn't even visible to the public. He wants the center to be somewhere that your parents would feel comfortable going to for help.
Williams said he wants to change the stigma surrounding doctor-prescribed pot use.
"It's absurd. I can go get morphine pumped into my system and nobody's got a problem," he said. "But all of a sudden they're really worried if I smoked a joint."

Shaq Sex Tape A Hoax, Source Says

Shaq Sex Tape Never Existed
The alleged Shaq sex tape, former Shaquille O'Neal associate Robert Ross says he was beaten and kidnapped for possessing never existed, according to a source who had information from the hearing.
“It was a bluff. There was no tape,” according to a source.
As previously reported, Ross recently said the he was beaten, robbed and kidnapped by Main Street Mafia Crips who were hired by Shaq in 2008 to obtain an extramarital sex tape he had in his possession.
But according to the source, Ross backed out of his previous comments in court.
“Ross said at the hearing that while he had security cameras in his house on occasions when Shaq visited, he never actually downloaded any compromising footage,” the source said.
Police interviewed O'Neal following the incident but did not turn up sufficient evidence he ordered or even knew about Ross's shakedown, according to the source said.

He was sentenced to a year for violating his probation last Dec. During their talk with X, he revealed that a certain Miami rapper extended an invitation for a fresh start with his emerging label.
VIBE: You got major labels interested?

DMX: Yeah. Actually, Rick Ross’ peoples wrote me a letterwhile I was in here.


Yeah like ‘Yo we got a home for you. We’ll pick you up in a limo. Just come to Miami. Just come, we got you.’

Oh wow, have you thought about that?

I’m thinking about it. It was a good feeling. I respect him as an artist, and I would like to work with him. But he got the whole Illuminati thing going on. I got fans who write me like ‘I’m glad you’re nota part ofthat.’ And I don’t know what it’s really about entirely. So it might be like a good thing.

That’s crazy man. Because I don’t know if you heard but right now Rick Ross is on fire. Maybach Music Group signed up a whole bunch of people. Wale, Pill–and they’re really doing it man. That would be a crazy power move if you guys joined up.

Yeah. I have respect for him and he expressed interest that he wanted to work with me while I was out. So I definitely want do a song with him, but I don’t know about the record label thing. I would have to see what his camp is like and feel people out. I’m not the average artist. Wale - I'm On One Freestyle.mp3

Rent Games for $2 Per Day Starting Tomorrow at Redbox

Redbox game rentals
 Redbox kiosks will offer a selection of Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii games for $2 a day.

DVD rental company Redbox will be adding a select lineup of videogames to its kiosks beginning tomorrow. As originally announced last week, the company will kick off its renewed efforts to move into the world of videogame rentals with prices double that of a DVD. For $2 plus tax, you can rent a game for one day. It might seem a bit pricey, and it certainly would be if you intend to hold on to a title for an extended period. But as a way of trying out a demo-less game for a day or two, it seems like a very convenient option. Some Redbox kiosks had been previously offering games, but it now appears to be a much larger point of emphasis for the company.
With retail rental stores like Hollywood Video going out of business and Blockbuster shutting down many of its stores, rental-by-mail service GameFly has become the most popular way to rent games in the United States. It allows subscribers to keep games for as long as they wish, but it's not entirely ideal because you're forced to wait while games are shipped back and forth. The immediacy of Redbox -- which operates out of kiosks located inside and outside of stores -- is sure to appeal to some.
A list of available titles on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii can be seen at Redbox's website. A number of recent releases, like L.A. Noire (PS3 only, likely because of the whole three DVD thing on 360), Brink, Red Faction: Armageddon, Infamous 2, and the controversial Duke Nukem Forever are all offered. You can place a hold on titles right from Redbox's website, so there's no need to worry about visiting a kiosk only to find what you want is out of stock. But be warned when you place a rental -- for example, if you place an order before 9PM on Monday, pick up the game on Tuesday, and then return it on Wednesday, you'll be charged for two days, not one.
Rentals will officially begin being offered at midnight on Friday, June 17.

Tupac ‘Shooter’ Claims A Lie?

Yesterday, posted a letter from Dexter Isaac in which he claimed responsibility for shooting Tupac Shakur in a robbery two years before his death. Isaac additionally offered up Tupac’s former associate Jimmy “Henchman” Rosemond, stating that he paid Isaac $2,500 for the job. However, Rosemond’s Lawyer Jeffery Lichtman has rebuked Isaac’s claims. “It’s a flat-out lie,” he told the New York Daily News. “Dexter Isaac is not claiming this 17 years later to clear his conscience. He’s doing it because he’s told anybody who will listen he doesn’t want to die in prison. He has kids and wants to work off his sentence. He can’t be trusted.”

Police Investigating Pac Shooting? Kanye Addresses Mama Song! Lil Mama Loses Mind!


Rumor has it the police are now investigating the claims of a lifer in jail that he was paid $2500 to rob Pac. The robbery resulted in the rapper being shot five times. What crazy is some people think this is regarding Pac's murder in Vegas. That's neither here nor there. Still, the coppers are investigating. This may be pure posturing. Honestly, from what I have been hearing, the cops aren't doing much at all, if anything. What I am also hearing is that some people are very nervous now...that this may be a domino that will knock down a lot of other dominoes.

HAPPY 40th TUPAC!!!!!


"The version of the Kanye West recording “Mama’s Boy” that arrived on blog sites earlier this week is entirely bogus and unsanctioned, and violates the artist’s creative intentions. As is often the unfortunate case, an unknown party or parties got a hold of Kanye West’s vocal track and added their own soundbed to it, effectively and falsely releasing it as a Kanye West track from the My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy sessions. The result in no way resembles the final song Kanye West intended his fans to hear, and he is deeply disappointed that one of the most personal, meaningful and special songs he has ever written would reach people in this way. Needless to say, measures are being taken to identify and prosecute the persons responsible for leaking this material."


She told that Nicki Minaj jacked her steelo! HUH?

Nicki Minaj & Lil Mama

She said:

But my cut is blunt and futuristic and Nicki Minaj started wearing that bob on her head after she came to my show, so at the end of the day I know what I do and I know what I possess and I know who I am. I’m a trendsetter. The biggest form of flattery is imitation so I’m flattered. I understand the universal law. I’m not confused, I don’t feel like a follower. I started so many things that new artists are doing now anyway –my style, the way I’m aggressive on a track, the way I come through, the way my beat bangs. There are so many things that were borrowed, that I influenced that’s happening in music right, so I’m far from discouraged.

That child's mind is gone!!!

Rick Ross Praises Tupac At 40th Celebration, Mike Epps Gives $10k

Rapper Rick Ross expressed his affinity for Tupac Shakur at a birthday celebration in Stone Mountain, GA, stating the rapper was a unique role model for a generation that looked up to the deceased icon.

The event, held at the Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation (TASF) acted as a 40th birthday celebration for Tupac, which featured Meek Mill, Bun B, Warren G, Too Short, jazz singer/producer Roy Ayers and Erykah Badu.

"For a lot of lil' dudes in a single parent home [like me] with my mother, Tupac played father for a lot of dudes like me," Rick Ross said to the crowd at the event. "Tupac was the first one that showed me how to be fully committed. I took [aspect of him like] his [loyalty], to his hard work, his ethic, his family with me."

The Miami rapper also stressed the impact Tupac has had on the youth growing up.

Ross continued, "When we talk about his record sales, let's not forget the role he played to all the little Black boys around the world."

Erykah Badu also commented on Tupac at the gala.
"My first reaction to Tupac was he's not a rapper, he's not an actor, he's a savior of sorts. But he came at a time when people weren't looking for a savior, they were looking for someone who looked like them," she said. "But saviors, sometimes are just doing the work, they are just doing their job."

Then, the eccentric singer proceeded to speak, then sing a song, "Soldier," in dedication to Afeni Shakur.

During her performance, Badu's microphone audio was cut, for reason unknown, causing some confusion.  "I want this to end the way it was meant, with peace," Badu concluded with a raised fist.

Comedian Mike Epps served as the Master of Ceremonies and he also presented Afeni Shakur with a $10,000 check for TASF. About 500 people attended the celebration.

Justin Timberlake On Working With Jay-Z

So much for Ebony and Ivory. In an excerpt from the latest Vanity Fair, Justin Timberlake says Jay-Z was too busy to appear on his sophomore album, FutureSex/LoveSounds. Cry me a river.
“Jay-Z has put out 11 albums, and I was talking about doing collaboration with him, and he said, ‘I can’t do it right now, but I’ll get you on the next album.’ I was like, ‘No, man, I don’t work like that. This sounded good to me for you and me to do together, and if it doesn’t work, then I totally get it, but I won’t be putting an album out next year; these aren’t a dime a dozen to me.’”
