Benzino was shot Saturday afternoon while driving in his mother's funeral procession and police already arrested a suspect ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.
We're told Benzino -- former owner of "The Source" magazine -- was shot after an argument erupted between family members in the funeral procession. Benzino was hit and he was rushed to the hospital.
Remarkably ... the rest of the family went on with the funeral and the preacher says when they arrived both the limo and the hearse were blood stained -- according to reports. And although there were reports stating Benzino was in critical condition, Stevie J took to his Instagram page to let everyone know that Benzino was ok. That picture below along with an update:
According to WCVB ... the district attorney says Benzino was shot by his nephew Gai Scott, adding, "There has been growing family tension" between the two.
The D.A. says Benzino and Gai were in different cars ... but when the two were side-by-side at some point, his nephew allegedly fired shots.
Gai was charged with assault with intent to murder.
Benzino is currently in stable condition.
As you all know from my numerous "HHGS Rumors", I like to put out my disclaimers. So let's start this off right by saying that the information contained in this post is NOT true until proven otherwise.
This information was obtained by an anonymous source. Anything in this post is reported strictly as a rumor and NOT an actual fact. The views and opinions expressed in the email is NOT the views and opinions of Gossip Viv or HipHopGossipSite.com. Now, let's get on with our story below:
I received an email about rapper Sean Paul who was down with the group "Young Bloodz". The group had a couple of popular joints back in the day. One of those joints was called "Presidential" and my favorite was with Lil Jon titled "Damn". If you don't remember what I'm talking about, then check out the video for "Damn" below:
Well, someone reached out to me and told me that despite Sean Paul being a married man, he recently took to his Instagram page to show some love to his ex-girlfriend. He not only showed love to his ex, but when she responded back to him, he gave her his number!! Check out those screenshots below:
I had to erase the rest of Sean Paul's number because I know some chicks and even some dudes would end up calling this man! In the meantime, I'm wondering if Sean Paul is still married and if so, what does his wife think about all of this?
Sidebar: I'll tell you what I think!......Instagram is the devil!!!
Last night, "Basketball Wives L.A." was off the chain as we got to see firsthand what actually went down between Draya and Sundy Carter. Not sure what the real beef is between the two ladies, but whatever the case is, Sundy caught the tail end of the stick as she was seen with a black eye that resembled Tina Turner's eye at the end of the movie "What's Love Got To Do With It". The photo above says it all!
Needless to say, Twitter and Instagram kept my timelines on fire with all the memes of Sundy.....peep some of them below courtesy of RhymesWithSnitch.com:
What were your thoughts on last nights show?
Page 31 was on location for Sevyn Streeter's headline show at SOBs which was an energetic night full of dance, impromptu covers, and great musicality. Sevyn produced the entirety of her debut EP titled "Call Me Crazy But" to a packed house of fans and industry elites such as Lyor Cohen, Kevin Liles and more.
Towards the late end of her performance, Sevyn Streeter brought Grammy Nominated R&B singer Mack Wilds on stage and gave him a provocative lap dance to her fan favorite "Sex On The Ceiling". Sevyn also covered hit singles such as Beyonce's "Drunk In Love", Drake's "From Time" and Keyshia Cole's "Love". However, you can peep her lap dance below:
A few weeks ago, Cassidy stopped by ThisIs50 Radio and gave us an exclusive story about an experience he had back in the day with R. Kelly and Jay Z.
While on tour for "The Best of Both Worlds", Cassidy recalls a time where he was going to perform his hit single "Hotel" with R. Kelly for the first time at Madison Square Garden. Although that collabo performance never took place, Cassidy explains why it didn't happen.......and it had to do with Ty Ty masing R. Kelly (remember that rumor?)
Anywho, watch as Cassidy tells us that R. Kelly and his crew seemed to be at a disadvantage and so him and his peoples loaned them their guns. However........Cassidy didn't know at the time that the beef R. Kelly was having was with Jay Z!!! That interview below:
Last night, VH1 and Hot 97 along with Monami Entertainment, Eastern TV and Myx Fusions Moscato, premiered the first two episodes of the upcoming docu-series “This is Hot 97” at Gotham Comedy Club in New York City. Cast members in attendance at the “Myx & Mingle” event included Angie Martinez, Funkmaster Flex, Ebro Darden, Miss Info, Paul Rosenberg, Cipha Sounds, Laura Stylez and DJ Camilo.
Earlier this evening I was sent a text from a good friend of mine talking about did I hear the latest gossip? Of course, I had no idea what my friend was talking about, that is until they sent me a photo of Mashonda, Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys vacationing on the beautiful St. Barth's island together!! (Pictured above)
If the photo above is indeed a true photo then kudos to all involved!! I know there was a time when things were not so peachy between the three of them. So to see this is really dope!! However, I do know that although Mashonda, Alicia Keys and Swizz are "allegedly" on vacation together....no one has posted up photos on their respective Instagram pages of anyone together....peep some pics from both Mashonda's and Swizz' pages below:
Kudos again to the blended family..........and I'm sure the rumors will be starting about Mashonda using the hashtag life partner in 5,4,3,2,........
I'm really not sure what's going on with Floyd Mayweather and his on again/off again fiance/girlfriend, Shantel Jackson, but whatever the case is they seem to be more off than on lately. In fact, the goings on of their relationship seem to be the topic of the latest rumor being reported........that the couple is off again.
Again, I'm not sure if this is the real deal, but someone sent me a photo of Shantel Jackson's closet while Floyd Mayweather was lacing her with the finer things in life along with a photo of the same closet being emptied out by Floyd because the couple have broken up yet again.
That picture below:
I don't know about you guys, but when you buy someone something from the heart, there's no need to take it back. When you start taking things back after the relationship is over and acting childish just shows me that you still care! #ImJustSaying
Now what say you?
I am dying to see what is going to unfold on the new season of Vh1's "Marrying The Game". For starters, as we've all seen in season 2, things did not work out so well for The Game and Tiffney. And with all of the rumors that have been floating around about The Game and Khloe Kardashian, I've always wondered what Tiffney really thought about that relationship.
I guess we will be finding out real soon as The Game recently took to his Instagram page to report that he was on set of "Marrying The Game" season 3.
Peep how The Game revealed the news below:
No other information has been revealed as to when the new season will be returning, but I can guarantee you its going to be a must watch!! Now what say you?
Last night, Fred The Godson held a private listening session for his newest mixtape coming out titled "Fat Boy Fresh". The new mixtape will be dropping today at 3:11pm!!
The event was sponsored by Hollywood Chucks "SX Liquors" which were being served throughout the night by the lovely Liza Marie. Our pic together below:
Food was provided by ChefsTapeNYC where Fred The Godson helped himself to a sandwich:
The event was hosted by me and let me tell you.....Fred got that fire on this mixtape!
Although all the songs were not played during the listening session, bloggers and industry tastemakers were able to hear about 14 songs as Fred recited the lyrics with close friends who made features on "Fat Boy Fresh". Now, check out some behind the scenes moments from last nights listening session below (courtesy of Mazi O):

A few weeks back, Lord Jamar stopped by the #ThisIs50 Radio studio to give us his opinion on a number of things that were taking place at the time in entertainment. Lord Jamar started off the interview by giving his opinion on the George Zimmerman and DMX fight that was supposed to happen, then he addressed Macklemore's apology to Kendrick Lamar on a social network, and said Macklemore was on some "hoe shit"!!
There was a whole lot more said, but you guys should check out the interview for yourselves below:
There's a picture floating around the internet with Stevie J and Joseline Hernandez chilling in the backseat of a car together this past weekend. Now the picture itself is really nothing to make a scene about. However, upon closer inspection, if you look really closely at Stevie J's profile, you will notice that there seems to be some sort of white powder around Stevie J's nose.
Many websites are "alleging" that the white substance around Stevie J's nose is the "white horse".....another word for cocaine. But it could very well be the angle of the shot and the light reflecting off of that angle, but that's just an opinion. You can check out the picture for yourselves below:
What do you guys think that white substance is around Stevie J's nose? I'll hold!
Last week on #ThisIs50 Radio, Hynaken and I got a chance to talk with Chinx where he addressed some rumors. The first rumor he addressed was if he had any beef with Dipset because of the whole Max B affiliation. And the second rumor he addressed was if he ever slept with "Love & Hip Hop's" own, Erica Mena.
Find out what Chinx had to say about all of those rumors below:
If you thought that reality TV was fake I'll say this....sometimes it is and sometimes it isn't. And "it isn't" for "Basketball Wives L.A." cast members Draya and Sundy Carter as the two were spotted Thursday night at a pre-Oscar soiree in Los Angeles arguing it out!!
The two don't seem to like each other in real life and from what I'm hearing, the two have already taken their dislike for each other to blows!
So until something gets aired on Vh1, check out the footage HipHollywood.com caught below:
Emerging artist, Tre Nyce, hails from Vancouver, Toronto and has released his latest single to us titled "Jeep". Tre Nyce has been featured on major outlets such as WorldStarHipHop.com and various mixtapes.
So get ready to check out his new joint below:
The video to "Jeep" will be coming out soon and if you'd like to keep up with everything that Tre Nyce has going on, follow him on Twitter @nyceguytre
Just last week, Hynaken and I had the chance to interview Raekwon. We asked him a bunch of questions and the interview was dope. The interview will be coming out in snippets because some of the questions we asked needed their own footage.
Soooo, until the full interview comes out, here's a snippet from our interview with Raekwon where Hynaken asked him about his thoughts on Raymond Felton's recent legal trouble.
Check out Raekwon's response below:
Well it looks like two could play that game when it comes to Robin Thicke and Paula Patton's relationship. After it was revealed that the two have decided to part ways, Paula Patton has since then been spotted with another man and his name is Jeremy Renner! The two played in the movie "Mission Impossible" together and looked rather comfortable with each other on the red carpet of the "Independent Spirit Awards".
And as I'm sure you all know, Robin Thicke has been photographed with a number of random chicks getting all touchy feely....so how does it feel Robin? Two can play that game is the saying, but sometimes to try a dose of your own medicine can really fix a person right up. So could Paula and Jeremy be a new couple? Or is Jeremy just the rebound man?
Only time will tell. In the meantime, check out some more pics of Paula Patton and Jeremy below:
This past weekend, 50 Cent and Steve Stoute came face to face to exchange some words with each other, and from the looks of the pictures that have been floating around the internet, the exchange was not so good. According to VIBE.com, the beef between the two men started back in 2000 when 50 Cent was dropped from his then record label, Sony/Columbia Records.
Since then, Steve Stoute has voiced his opinion about 50 Cent in various media outlets including Hot 97's "The Angie Martinez Show" and Power 105's "The Breakfast Club". And if you know anything about 50 Cent, then you know he is not one to take things so lightly. However, although words were exchanged, no physical altercation took place.....which is a good thing in my book.
Take a look at another picture of the two and their heated exchange below:
As of yet, no one has released any comments, but you never know who will show up to ThisIs50 Radio on Wednesday so stay tuned!
