50 Cent Extends G-Unit Roster, Inducts New Member

G-Unit leader 50 Cent continues to make waves just weeks after partnering with Southern rapper Shawty Lo by signing New Orleans' Kidd Kidd.
Here's one for the naysayers. G-Unit's very own Tony Yayo shot the clip for his "Haters" video today flanked by G-Unit boss 50 Cent and the labels latest acquisition Shawty Lo. The video was shot in L-O's Atlanta home state and features a cameo from the Unit's new artist, Kid Kidd. Stay tuned for more news on 50's next wave of G-Unit. (Rapfix)
On the set of Tony Yayo's "Haters" music video this weekend, Kidd Kidd hinted at his G-Unit association.
"Good mornin video shoot today me @TonyYayo @50cent shawty lo its goin dwn big ups to all my haters," he tweeted Saturday (Kidd Kidd's Twitter)
Kidd Kidd recently hit up SOHH and talked about 50 supporting his latest solo album, The Reallionaire.
"Real n*ggas do real things and 50 Cent is an official n*gga," Kidd Kidd told SOHH. "He's a real n*gga and I don't care what any n*gga's got to say about him. Anything anybody's got to say about 50 they might as well say it about me too. Real n*gga sh*t. He came to my album release party and this man called me. He called me himself. He didn't need nobody to call me and he came himself. He hit me up like, 'Yo, what's up Kidd? What's up with you?' And this was before the party and all of that, he wanted to holler at me and I respect that because most people in the game, they go into that Hollywood talk and they send their people to talk to your people. But 50 came at me direct and I respect that. It's a respect thing, you feel me? There's not too many real out there that do what they do. He told me when he comes down to New Orleans, he's gonna come and get at me. And that's what happened. He came to the N.O. and got with me. Whatever I got going on, he came and supported me. He didn't have to be there but he came through. He didn't come through on some, 'I'm gonna need some money for this appearance,' nah, my dog came through, performed and everything." (SOHH)
A few days ago, Shawty Lo talked about inking a partnership deal with 50.
"My vision, man, is to give it 100 percent, whatever we do," Shawty said. "I really signed with 50 because I feel like 50's a marketing genius. I've been watching him since he first came into the game before I even thought about becoming a rapper. But to make it short and simple, I signed a big deal with 50, $10 million deal. If that ain't enough, he's sitting right beside me, so let's get it...A lot of artists come into the game and they don't know thebusiness side. So basically, I was one of those artists at first in the beginning. In the music business, it's really 20 percent music and 80 percent business. If you learn the business, you can really go a long way." (Hot 107.9)

Bow Wow's Not A Baby's Daddy On Birth Certificate

Cash Money Records' Bow Wow may be aiming to make good with his baby's mother/model Joie Chavis as new reports claim she intentionally omitted his name from their daughter's birth certificate.
Bow Wow's baby mama was so pissed that he was MIA during the birth of their baby, and the days that followed -- she 86'd him from the baby's birth certificate. Joie Chavis tells TMZ ... she was shocked that B.W. wasn't there for her when she went under the knife for an emergency C-section on April 27. And if Bow Wow's excuse was squeamishness, it didn't explainhis absence in the days that followed. He finally showed up on the 6th day of the baby's life, to take them home. Pissed as she was, Joie tells us Bow Wow has turned it around and now is all about baby Shai. Joie says she's now willing to let bygones be bygones and put Bow Wow on the document, but it's going to take a judge to make that happen. (TMZ)
Chavis recently talked about Bow Wow taking on fatherhood.
"He's getting all these props as dad of the year, I just hope he does the work, in fact, I pray he becomes an example to all young fathers. I was happy to hear his statements, I just pray he lives up to it." (Global Grind)
The rapper's Cash Money Records labelmate, Glasses Malone, recently gave SOHH his reaction to the news.
"He's been in this business forever and n*ggas be wanting to hurt themselves over this business," Glasses told SOHH. "I know dudes who have become full drug addicts and alcoholics because of this business. That sh*t is probably going to help him because like I said, his life has always been in the industry and this may have given him something even more for him to live for. Sometimes people don't know the value of families and I think a dude like that, this is going to help him and he's going to treat the baby right." (SOHH)
Prior to the latest information, initial reporting claimed Bow Wow's daughter was born sometime last month.
Rapper Bow Wow has become a first-time father after his ex-girlfriend delivered a baby girl. The "Like You" hitmaker, real name Shad Moss, welcomed daughter Shai Moss with hip-hop video vixen Joie Chavis, in early June. (Fox 23 News)

Shanell Parties with Aubrey O’Day on ‘Nobody’s Bitch’ Mixtape

Shanell and Aubrey O'Day
The party girls are back. Shanell is reuniting with Aubrey O’Day for a sequel to their ’80s jam “Party All the Time.”

The Young Money songstress and former Danity Kane diva have been busy with their own projects, but are finding time to record a continuation to their 2009 cover of Eddie Murphy and Rick James’ 1985 hit. “That is the reunion of ‘Party All of the Time,’” Shanell told of the as-yet-untitled record. “We started something and we’re gonna get back in and finish. I think we’re both party girls so it will still have that party essence.”
The result may appear on Shanell’s upcoming mixtape Nobody’s Bitch, the follow-up to last year’s Shut Up and Listen. “It’s gonna be a real fun mixtape,” she said. “I think Shut Up and Listen was more laid-back. Nobody’s Bitch is gonna be the party girl, the party animal.”
In addition to Aubrey, she’s collaborating with some new talent. “I’m not really one to follow any trends that somebody else already set, so there’s a lot of new producers I’ve met along the way that I believe in and collaborated with for the sound of Shanell to take over the airwaves.”
Shanell serves as artistic director on Lil Wayne’s “I Am Still Music” tour, which starts its second leg on July 13 in Hartford, Conn.

Beyoncé Serves Up Stellar Set at T in the Park Festival

“I want you to forget about all your drama and all your troubles and get lost in this music tonight!” declared Beyoncé while invading Scotland on Day 2 of the T in the Park festival on Saturday (July 9).
Following her much-heralded headlining performance at Glastonbury, the curly-haired superstar hit the stage to “Crazy in Love” wearing a sequined black slip. She had festivalgoers in the palm of her hand while delivering crowd pleasers including “Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It)” and “Irreplaceable.”
As with her recent gigs, she reminisced with a medley of Destiny’s Child’s hits and covered Prince’s “The Beautiful Ones” backed by her all-female band. She handed it over to her friends Coldplay, but not before filling the park with the sweet sounds of “Halo.”

Monica Marries Shannon Brown in Second Wedding Ceremony

Shannon Brown and Monica
Monica and Shannon Brown tied the knot for the second time. The couple celebrated their union in a lavish ceremony in Los Angeles over the weekend.

The Grammy-winning singer, 30, and L.A. Lakers star, 25, quietly wed last fall in a private ceremony, but they exchanged vows before hundreds of their closest family and friends on Saturday at Vibiana, a renovated cathedral in downtown Los Angeles, according to PEOPLE.
The bride was beaming as she walked down the aisle in a gown by Stéphane Rolland during the 30-minute ceremony. Among the VIP guests were Ciara, Ludacris, Cee Lo Green, Ashanti, Nelly, Polow Da Don, La La Vazquez, Carmelo Anthony, and Brown’s teammates Kobe Bryant and Derek Fisher. Jermaine Dupri provided the soundtrack to the magical evening.
Monica’s two sons, Romelo and Rocko, along with Brown’s son, arrived by horse and carriage. Guests at the purple and blue-themed reception dined on a three-course gourmet meal.
The newlyweds met last summer while shooting the video for Monica’s single “Love All Over Me.” After getting engaged in October, they married in a secret ceremony at their Los Angeles home a month later.
