Everybody and almost every blog has their top 5 of something that they are interested in. So here is my top 5 beauties of HipHopGossipSite.com! You may not agree and you may not approve. Everybody is entitled to their opinion and so am I. There is a person out there in this particular industry that continues to call me a hater...and I can't see how since I'm always giving props so here I go with my top 5 ladies:
5. My girl Lauren London is with no exception part of my top 5 women of beauty! She sort of reminds me of Aaliyah and myself. Don't ask why, I just think that.
4. My girl Beyonce is at the number 4 spot. Now I know she's not as beautiful as Lauren London but I feel that Beyonce is into soo many things that she had to beat Lauren by 1 spot. Music, clothing, fragrances, make up and movies.......now that's some damn hustle!
3. Sanaa Lathan is at my number 3 spot because she carries a certain elegance and style that I have yet to see any other personality carry! I mean come on damn it!! She's Sanaa Lathan!! Brown Sugar and Love & Basketball got me hooked!
2. The beautiful and lovely Stacey Dash is at #2 because at 40 plus years of age and about soo many children........not many women can look as good as she does and that's a job and a half!! That's why she's #2!
1. And my number 1 spot goes to the EXTRAVAGANT LISARAYE!! To me she is the epitome of beautiful! Anyone that knows me knows how I feel about LisaRaye! And just off of that is the reason why she's my #1.
Don't agree with me then hit me up and let me know who you think should've been in my top 5. Would love to hear about it!

The first joint I bring to you is from Skillz. I'm a fan of Skillz and I really like this song called "You Don't Own Me". I loved the song the very first time I heard it on Sirius Satellite Radio. Now, my boy has got a video for it. The video is crazy and I'm loving it because it's different! For once the video is focused on the woman's beauty and not her ASSets (if you know what I mean)! I'm so tired of the shots of the womens breasts and ass! I mean...come on! We get it! She's stacked! How about show the woman in another type of light and that's exactly what this video did! Much props to Skillz and on that note check out the video below:
My next pick of the day is from my homie Phylle. This is definitely a Christmas banga. It brings back that old school, family type feel. Take a listen and let me know what you guys think:
Don't forget that exclusive one on one with Phylle is coming soon so stay tuned!!! Until then you can catch some videos of Phylle showing his talent at youtube.com/privateivi.

Let me just let yall know that I wasn't even going to report on this bafoonery that went down at the Dirty Awards. I felt like every other website had that covered on their own. Although this is a hip hop gossip site, I feel like I have some integrity not to show the tom foolery that goes down at concerts. So I let it ride. But now, I have to show you Shawty Lo's response on what happened. Don't know what happened then check out Shawty Lo's version of what happened:
And if you haven't seen the footage of what went down then here it is below:

Lil Wayne is finally responding to 50 Cent! I mean, I'm a true fan of both rappers but it's about damn time! I mean, come on!! How much bashing can one brother take?! We are all human and we all have our breaking point. It's not like 50 Cent has been taking it light on the brotha either. With quotes such as "kissing baby and calling somebody Daddy"....those are some hard words to come by. And yet and still Lil Wayne had nothing to say. I was actually proud of Lil Wayne for letting it ride for as long as he did. But now, it's understandable when Lil Wayne has something to say about this whole thing. I think he could've come a little harder but at least it's something. This track is called "Louisianimal". Check it out and let me know what you think.

According to Celebrity Smack, rumors are swirling all around that Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown might be getting back together again! Whitney and Bobby have been spotted out and about at dinner looking very affectionate. Although Whitney's reps are saying that she is friends with Bobby, for the sake of their 15 year old daughter, Bobbi Kristina.
My opinion is that they are probably still boning. There's alot of history there with those two and it wouldn't surprise me if they got back together. Hell, Bobby cheated with Superhead and Whitney cheated with Ray J! Fair is fair! I think they're even!

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday and be safe in everything that you do! I will be enjoying the holiday by being at home and enjoying my family. All of that combined with some good home cooking....you can't go wrong! Be appreciative of all you've got and remember there are alot of people who don't have it like you so it's a day to be THANKFUL!!
This past Monday and Tuesday, multi-platinum artist Flo Rida, along with new artists Brisco and Billy Blue, handed out turkeys to families in need. They teamed up with WEDR and McDonald's to help out this holiday season. With the economy in crisis, there are many families who will not be able to put food on the table this Thanksgiving. Their aim was to help alleviate this by giving out 700 turkeys.
No one can be mad with that!! Have a blessed holiday!

Chaz Williams is famous and notorious for his past history but the man I met is intelligent and had a lot to say. Not once, while sitting down and talking to the man, did I think about him robbing banks or having been to prison. The interview was fun. We laughed and got to know each other and became friends. So sit back, relax and get to know "Chaz Williams".
NYC: Everybody knows Chaz Williams for his past. Can you let the people know what it is you did in your past?
CHZ: Wow! How far do you want to go back?
NYC: Let's take it from American Gangster (which airs on BET).
CHZ: It kind've started from my youth. I was considered the leader, the boss, the organizer or whatever they were labelling me at the time. (We both laugh) I served 15 years. I received 95 years total! And during the course of appeals and post convictions and fighting in the courts.....getting some of the sentences running concurrent and others thrown out because of technicalities.....it took 15 years before I could finally get out! I came home on parole and once I was on parole I was considered, because of my history, I had a central monitoring type case, I was under intensive supervision.
NYC: Let me ask you a question right quick...
NYC: Are you still under that central monitoring?
CHZ: Nah! I'm probably under somebody's monitor. (We laugh) But not that one! (Laughs)
NYC: Now you said you did bank robberies. When I saw American Gangster, you said you were in jail while you were doing it.
CHZ: Well, that was one of the cases that I had. Some of them, they claimed happened, while I was on escape. Some of them, they claimed happened, while I was out free. Some of them, they claimed, happened while I was inside serving time but I was allegedly sending out orders to other people to rob banks. One of the cases they showed on American Gangster was I was inside going out to a study release program. I was going to the University of Michigan and coming back in at night. They had a special program...that wasn't why I did the 15 years. That's part of what I did the 15 years for! I was serving another sentence at that time. When you get close to your release, they kind of want to reintegrate you into society, so they would allow (through a special pilot program) certain convicted persons to either attend school or work for a period of time before they release you. I thought this was pretty good!
NYC: So do I!!! That was pretty good!!!
CHZ: I thought it was excellent! You know!
NYC: Well, did you rob banks?....Only because I notice in your speech you keep saying, "they say" or "allegedly". Did you ever rob a bank? (Laughs)
CHZ: I mean, I've been convicted for it! (Laughs) I mean, multiple bank robberies!!! (Laughs some more)
NYC: I just needed to know because I might need some tips on how to rob a bank! (Laughs) I'm struggling! Teach me! (Laughs)
CHZ: (Laughs) Well, on American Gangster, I kind of walk you through it. On there I say it happened.
NYC: You are smart! I hear how you're talking. "Allegedly, they said". But I don't hear I did. (Smiles)
CHZ: (Laughs to himself)
NYC: How did BET get to know what you did? And how did they approach you about being on American Gangster?
CHZ: I happened to be watching the first season and what I saw on the first season, didn't sit well with me. I contacted the producers. Being in the industry, since that time, I knew who to contact, to get my point across. I wrote them a letter critiquing the show. What I thought they were showing was, they had a couple of cases where the guys were informants, which is definitely something I don't condone! I saw the kind of guys they were covering at the time. I know what they (BET) were trying to do and I understood that but....you have to tell the whole story. If you are going to put it out there like that....everybody that has been involved at that level of crime, doesn't end up dead or in jail. There are other stories that show other sides of what happens. They later contacted me and said we understand you have a story. I told them Yeah! I have a story. So, they asked me if I would be willing to do American Gangster. I told them I would get back to them. I thought about it and decided that I would do it.
NYC: I know you have children. Did you have children at the time of your crimes?
NYC: How did that affect your children?
CHZ: Well, I found a way, during the course of my incarceration, to stay in touch with them and stay in their lives as well as I could. I did pretty good actually. (Smiles)
NYC: I heard you are doing a program for the inmates?
CHZ: It's not for them per say. It's for prisoners all over. In other words, I go back into the prisons as a form of outreach. I go in and give them some hours outside of the jail or some time outside of their cells.
NYC: Is prison like how they portray on TV? Have you had any negative experiences?
CHZ: Prison is not like how they portray on TV! I mean I don't even know what some of that stuff is, what they be showing on TV! Prison is not easy, it's violent. There's potential for a lot of things like killings and assaults. You're in there with the most dangerous men in the state or in the country! You're in there with them! It ain't like....how they say? Don't drop the soap...It ain't all that! ( We laugh) For some people it may be that. They do have some of those incidents but the thing is....in prison there ain't no guns. It doesn't matter how much money you got. You could have all the money in the world, which will probably get you into more trouble, you know, if you soft. In prison you are stripped of everything! There's no bodyguards. It's just you and that is it! It's you by yourself in that cell. So if you're not respected or you can't get your respect, you may have a hard time. You may not make it. I'm not saying you may not make it physically but you may not make it mentally! Jail is not easy!
NYC: When you were released, you changed your ways for the positive. You started Black Hand Entertainment....
CHZ: Black Hand started in prison. It was a group of guys that thought alike and believed in the same things. We made a pact that we would always stay in touch. It just evolved. The logo is the hand with 5 fingers. The 5 fingers, at first, represented the 5 boroughs. The palm represented unity. We would stay in contact throughout our incarceration. Some of us went to the state and some of us went to the feds. We communicated with other dudes who thought like us. The group became close and we stayed in contact. A lot of people went home during my incarceration. I was in facilities all over the country. When I got out, I was under intensive supervision and the job of the parole officer who handles intensive supervision cases is not to help you stay out but to get you back as soon as possible because they don't believe you should be out anyway. When you are under intensive supervision you are either with organized crime or considered a super violent type person. Something along that lane or both. So they don't want to see you out anyway. And what they would do....part of your condition to receive parole is to be gainfully employed. They make it very hard for you. What I did to combat that was I started my own business. They could come by all they want, it's all good.
NYC: So when did you start that? Black Hand....as your own business?
CHZ: Around 1989 or 1990.
NYC: What does Black Hand Entertainment do? I know you have Grafh.
CHZ: We do have Grafh. We are a multi entertainment company. We do management, music with Black Hand Records, film and artist development.
NYC: I know you have Grafh and he's one of your main artists.
NYC: What is Grafh up to?
CHZ: We have a distribution deal with Koch Records for his album called "The Evolution". He also has a mixtape coming out with Green Lantern and his first single is "Bring The Goons Out".
NYC: Who are your other artists?
NYC: I know you had Foxy Brown at one point.....
CHZ: I was managing her at one time.
NYC: Were you trying to develop her?
CHZ: Nah! She actually approached me but it didn't last long because she went in (prison) shortly afterward.
NYC: I heard there was a beef. Foxy Brown states that she didn't give the ok to release "Brooklyn's Don Diva".
CHZ: Foxy Brown...she probably didn't give the ok since she was in jail but she was contractually linked to Koch Records.
NYC: So that didn't have anything to do with you?
CHZ: No! I guess she would've sued them for falsely releasing the album if they did something wrong. I didn't see that happen so...she recorded the records...but I have said sarcastically in the past that I recorded them, I wrote them, I picked the music, I went in the booth and recorded them....so it's my fault. (We laugh) And it's all good.
NYC: And with that being said, Foxy Brown made a comment back to you.
CHZ: I forget what she said but she was just passing blame. Whatever goes wrong with an artist it's always the manager's fault. That's part of the management thing.
NYC: Are you still working with Foxy Brown?
CHZ: No I'm not.
NYC: Do you plan on working with Foxy Brown?
CHZ: Absolutely not!
NYC: Now, there are rumors and I just want your opinion. Is Foxy mental? Can you verify if that's true or not?
CHZ: No I can't verify that.
NYC: Is she on medication?
CHZ: No comment! (We laugh)
NYC: So what is Chaz working on right now?
CHZ: We are working on the album "The Evolution". We are also working on a film project called "Inside Out". It's a story about my life.
NYC: Will you be featured in the film?
NYC: My next couple of questions are gossip related with certain things that are happening in the industry. If you had your chance to smash anyone in the industry who would it be?
CHZ: If I had my opportunity (laughs) What are we talking about? Music? Or....
NYC: It could be anybody. It could be anybody in the entertainment industry. Anybody you desire. Who would it be?
CHZ: I would pick Nia Long, Toni Braxton and LisaRaye but I heard what she did to that African dude.
NYC: Who? Michael Misick?
CHZ: Yeah! Wasn't she acting crazy?
NYC: No!!! He was cheating on her and what happened was she went to the mansion....
NYC: And he didn't let her in. Now that's his wife! He should've let her in! So what she did was she ran her SUV through the gate...
CHZ: Yeah! That's crazy!
NYC: I mean every woman has a little crazy with them.
CHZ: Nah. I pick Halle Berry.
NYC: Now, who are you voting for?
CHZ: McCain!.....Nah!!! Obama!!! I was just joking with the McCain thing! (We laugh)
NYC: If people wanted to reach out to you, how would they go about doing that?
CHZ: They can contact Young Wayne AKA Maxx Wayne. YoungWayne@gmail.com or my MySpace at myspace.com/blackhandchaz.
After all the laughing, we spoke more about Obama and McCain. As we all know Obama won the race and the rest is history. Chaz Williams and I have become friends and are working on some future ventures. So stay tuned cuz I'm always working on something!

So a short while ago I brought to you this rumor that was floating around the internet in which "Superhead" was throwing hints that she was pregnant and that the Daddy was Bow Wow. Yall know how upset I was about those rumors cuz I really like Bow Wow. Well let me let yall know (and let me put those rumors to bed) Bow Wow is telling the world that although he might have slept with Superhead he definitely strapped up and he ain't nobody's baby daddy!!! In fact, peep the track he did below and pay attention to the first part of the song. He says "I hear these rumors about Superhead / Boy y’all funny, / I wrapped it up like a Christmas gift / I ain’t no dummy". Thank God we finally got a response Bow Weezy!!!

What can I say? What can I say? When you fight with family things just happen. I have to admit that sometimes when you fight with family it's worse than fighting with a stranger! Let me explain for a moment. Strangers don't really know you so it's easy to punch them out and keep it moving. With family.........they know you. They will tell you things that hurt! Deep down to the core because they know how you operate. They are around you all the time and know your faults and your positives. So to me when you fight with family it can be a very dirty game because they will put you on blast and then fight you afterward. Sometimes it's hard to forgive them because what they are saying hurts and what they are saying can be TRUE! So check out the fight that happened between 2 of the brothers on the show "BRUTHA". The one that drinks resembles Souljah Boy to me. As for the other brother you can't help but laugh on how he caught his brother off guard. Although, I didn't know he was gay....his brother should've never called him a homo. That's his brother at the end of the day and you have to accept him as he is! That was just not right! But check it out and let me know what you think.

My boy Will Smith never seems to amaze me. He is always into something and doing something. His acting skills are off the hook! Do yall know that I can't watch the Fresh Prince of Bel Air episode when Will finds out his father doesn't want anything to do with him? I break down into tears and I always think to myself afterwards....DAMN!.....it's just the Fresh Prince of Bel Air!!! But check out this trailer of Will Smith's new movie coming out in December. It looks like a must see! However, I don't know what the hell it's about. You guys be the judge and let me know if you will check it out or not by leaving a comment or hitting me up on the email.

If I was to say Frankie go head girl.....I'd be wrong! I love Frankie to death but Neffie holding the camera and enabling her Mom to cut a damn fool is WRONG!! Especially in front of the kids. :( I know the kids was there because I hear them in the background. Now if the kids were in bed then that's a whole nother story but to do this kind of dancing in front of the kids is not right. Frankie and Neffie........I love yall........but yall were wrong for this one! Just my opinion. I'm not judging.......I'm just saying!

Your girl, the NYC Gossip Girl, had such a hectic weekend! I made a trip to Queens thinking I was going to interview D.O.E. but things just didn't go according to plan. But never the one to fret I made plans to get other business out of the way. So....I got up with my boy, Mook Diamond, of Get It Done Entertainment and he tells us what went down this past Thursday over at the Dancy Power Automotive Party and what you can expect in 2009 for the NBA All Star Weekend which is going down in Phoenix Arizona. I've never travelled on business before but I tell you that I'm going down to this event!!! So....Elia, get prepared to watch the girls for the weekend because this event is a definite!!!

B-Real of Cypress Hill is debuting his first music video off "SMOKE N MIRRORS" for his song "Don't Ya Dare Laugh" featuring Young De. This video was directed by Matt Alonzo. "Smoke N Mirrors" is in stores February 24th, 2009 courtesy of Audio Hustlaz/Duck Down Records! I really like this song. It kind of reminds me of something Dr. Dre would do or put out. Enjoy and let me know what you think:

So here I go with another one of my stories right? Well, I decided to reach out to a friend I haven't heard from in a minute and she couldn't wait to text me all of her juicy details from the last time we spoke with each other. Come to find out that while she was registering her son for school she had a celebrity sighting! The sight she saw was Irv Gotti registering one of his sons in school as well. She couldn't believe it and kept on with what she was doing and then yesterday she took her son to a basketball try out and guess who was sitting right next to her?! That's right! Irv Gotti!!! She said she is for sure that he lives in her area (which is the Long Island area). But come to think of it.......when Irv's reality show ended....I remember him asking his wife to relocate. I'm wondering if Long Island was the relocation spot? I'll let yall know if I spot him or not! Marilyn expect to have some more company over!! ;)

According to my people over at BET.com it seems that Katt Williams was sent to a mental hospital this weekend. Apparently, Katt was visiting family members in South Carolina and ended up in the Tuomey Regional Medical Center. It started on a Friday when employees at a motel called police because Katt Williams was roaming around with his bathrobe on and a towel wrapped around his head. When police arrived they figured no laws were broken so they left. Here's the rest of the story according to BET.com:
Williams next stop was at the office of attorney Garryl Deas where he spoke to the attorney because he felt the police were “attempting to violate his rights.” Williams even spoke to Deas about the rumors that he had died in a plane crash earlier this month.
After Deas left and returned an hour later, Williams was waiting for the attorney and his demeanor had changed and Deas felt Williams seemed “disoriented.”
At this time, Williams family arrived and tried to take the comedian to the hospital for a mental evaluation.
“He just said that he doesn’t trust anyone anymore,” Deas said. He said he thought “everyone has turned against him. He wasn’t really coherent.”
By that point, the actor was “speaking gibberish,” Deas said, though he declined to guess whether the actor was intoxicated.
An order was issued by a probate judge in order to have Williams transported to the mental hospital and Katt was not physically aggressive when officers arrived.
A legal commitment spans 72 hours and after that time a patient must go before a judge to determine whether to be hospitalized or not.
Williams has a show scheduled at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas on Nov. 20 and a gig with Steve Harvey on Dec. 31 in Detroit — his last stand-up show according to Katt.
His last stand up show!!! I hope that part of the story isn't true!

Everybody is running rampant over this new fragrance that's about to come out from Diddy called "I Am King". This name sounds soo familiar to me?.....Doesn't it sound similar to the new clothing line that T.I. has out? I thought so! Diddy states "When you see Barack Obama you see a strong, elegant black man. So when people see my ad, it's almost like that's the trend."
The black and white ad which will be in magazines and billboards in December features Diddy in a white dinner jacket. The new fragrance will be sold in Macy's stores for the holidays. Now that's what I'm talking about.

Why is Donald Trump hatin on 50 Cent? With all the money in the world you would think the hatin and madness would stop. But no!! Not with Trump! When asked about his thoughts on the new 50 Cent reality show called "The Money and The Power" he said "It was a copy of ‘The Apprentice.’ It will fail because he’s not Trump, but he’s actually a nice guy.”
Are you kidding me? Why do people like Trump feel the need to put people down when they are trying to be on top like him?! Sucks...but unfortunately it's the way of the world.

Let me find out that there might just be a cure for AIDS!!! Well the reports are coming in like crazy that an American man, aged 42, has just been cured from the deadly disease. Peep the article below courtesy of Livesteez.com.
Tennesse-based radio station, WGNS Talk Radio, is reporting that doctors in Berlin, Germany may have found a cure for AIDS.
In what could be the most significant breakthrough in the treatment of AIDS, doctors in Berlin, Germany said that they successfully cured a 42-year-old American man of the deadly disease with a targeted bone marrow transplant. According to Dr. Gero Huetter, this procedure is normally used to treat leukemia patients.
Huetter said the unidentified American had contracted AIDS over a decade ago and underwent a transplant of a genetically selected bone marrow, at a press conference yesterday, according to WGNSRadio.com.
Twenty months after the surgery, the virus appears to have left his body. There have been nothing but clean tests on his bone marrow, blood and organ tissues.
Man oh Man if this is true...........THANK YOU JESUS!!!

I have to admit something to you guys.....I am not a Plies fan. I don't know why but something about him I just don't get. That is until I heard this song, Put It On Ya!!! I'm feeling this song but believe it or not none of those other songs that he's put out has piqued my interest. I hated Bust It Baby!!! I think I might be the only person in the universe that absolutely hated that song. But I'll retract all of my statements cuz this song here put me right where I needed to be! I feel like somebody needs to put it on me! Sike! But it would be nice. ;) So for now, check out the song below and let me know what you think. The words in this song are sooo serious right now!!!!

Here's a clip produced, directed and filmed by my baby daddy "Kraze" of All Access DVD Magazine. This clip shows a man telling stories of his experiences with bodyguarding some of the most biggest names in the industry. The catch is............DO YOU BELIEVE HIM? I don't know. Can't tell just yet but if you killed about 8 or 9 men....why are you on camera saying you did?! You know Po Po nowadays have access to YouTube and MySpace just waiting for somebody to F up!! Kraze why you go and do that huh? You put this clip out without even telling your baby momma?! I thought I had the exclusive on this but I see I don't. Hmmm! Well, let me not be tooo angry with Kraze because without him I wouldn't have these 2 lovely, beautiful little girls I have here with me today. So thank you Kraze for those precious little gifts!!!

So I might be a little late but dang if this story ain't interesting! Adrienne Baillon, formerly of 3LW, had her laptop stolen and these are the pics that are floating around the internet. Apparently these photos were for Kim Kardashian's brother Robert Kardashian but they never made it. I never knew this chick was dating Kim Kardashian's brother! For some odd reason I thought Kim Kardashian's brother was gay?....I could be wrong but that's the impression that he gave off. I thought that was the reason why his sister's were always trying to hook him up with a chick. Hey! I guess you never know these days. Sorry for the assumption! My, My, My how these 3LW chicks have grown! See how grown Adrienne is below. Warning!!!! Adult content:

Snoop Dogg and his family are back at it again with a second season of his hit reality show called "Fatherhood". It will be airing on Sunday, November 30th at 10:30pm on the E! Channel. I actually liked the show because it showed another side of Snoop that we don't necessarily get to see. I like the way he interacts with his wife and children. It seems that they all have a very cool relationship with each other.....and to me being cool with your family is the greatest gift God can give to someone.

As you all might know this past Tuesday I was not on the radio. I have officially stopped doing the show that aired every Tuesday evening from 7-9pm at SoundConnectRadio.com. I'm not going to say anything negative about Sound Connect because at the end of the day I feel that personally they are my people's but professionally..........I can't mess with them. My time is very important to me and I can't afford to waste it. I have 4 kids and I can't stress it out enough that my time belongs to my children. So if I make time to do something to benefit both you and I..........let's make that happen and stop bullshittin! Unfortunately, I felt that I was being used for my connections and my show wasn't taken seriously. So for now, I left Sound Connect but I'll be some where else soon. I got something in the works as we speak.

Naturi, featured above, is formerly from the girl group 3LW. Naturi actually plays Lil Kim in the new movie Notorious which is dropping in January of 09. It's funny that Naturi is looking the way she does on this King Magazine cover because she's actually trying to portray a Lil Kim album cover. Do you think she's doing a good job? Well.......take a look at the Lil Kim album cover below:
I think Naturi needs more surgeries before she can get the Lil Kim look down pat! Was that a low blow? Sorry! I'm just saying! Shouts to my girl Marilyn who will be hooking me up with the interview with Naturi.
