New York rapper Foxy Brown recently reacted to actress Lindsay Lohan getting 90-days in Jail, explaining how she can related to being locked up as a celebrity. Foxy Brown says Lohan's time behind bars reminds her of being sent to Rikers Island for a year back in 2007.
"My heart goes out to Lindsay Lohan. I watched her being taken to jail and it brought back tears and memories. It wasn't all negative, I have to say that," Brown said in an interview. "People just automatically think that prison stereotypically is the worst place. I was unlawfully sent to prison for a year, but I kind of welcomed the serenity when I was sentenced and I knew I had to deal with this...When Puff says 'Mo money, mo problems,' it's really true. It's such a blessing being a celebrity. There are a lot of perks to being a celebrity, but the downside of it? Oh, man. You're constantly targeted. We all need to be law-abiding citizens, but I think each case needs to be ruled by the law, as opposed to this is a celebrity who is doing this and needs to be taught a lesson."

XXL posted a Jeezy cover story excerpt from their September 2010 / 13th Anniversary issue, on newsstands August 10th.
Thug Motivation 103 has been long delayed. It’s evident that people are becoming very cynical about its release. How do you calm the skeptics and respond to those who say you’ve lost it and you’re not in a good space right now?
You think it wasn’t like that for B.I.G.? You think it wasn’t like that for Jay? ’Pac? Shit, that’s all Jay talks about. Like, “Nigga, y’all gon’ count me out? Okay, watch this. Boom. I do this better.” That’s what it’s about. But, at the end of the day, that’s what keeps me goin’… Nobody’s not gon’ sit here and tell me, “We done with you, ’cause we’re done.” Nigga, that’s y’all. I’m not done with shit. And they gon’ sit up here and tell me, “Aw, well, you ain’t…” I’m doin’ what any nigga would do on his fourth album. I’m gettin’ it together. I’m not just gon’ give you anything, to be hot and relevant. That don’t make sense. That’s like telling a muthafucka anything just to get it done. I’ma be straight up with you, so when you walk away, even if you ain’t satisfied, I kept it real. I kept it 100. And that’s the way I feel. I wouldn’t even call it the top of my game. I’m just really figuring out the music shit. Once I put that old-school blueprint outline together that I used, with this shit that I’ve done now, it’s a wrap on ’em, homie. C’mon, I’m on my fourth album. Think about niggas’ 10-year plans. I done did more in four albums than a lot of niggas gon’ do for the rest of they life.
Tuesday, the city of New York agreed to settle a civil lawsuit stemming from a 2006 shooting which killed Sean Bell and injured Joseph Guzman and Trent Benefield. The Associated Press reports the settlement was filed in Brooklyn and will award $3.35 million to the estate of Bell, $3 million to Guzman and $900,000 to Benefield. Police opened fire on the three men outside of a Queens strip club while they were leaving Bell's bachelor party.
After his killing, artists such as Game, ?uestlove, Papoose, David Banner and many others took up Bell's cause. Bell's widow, Nicole Paultre-Bell was also featured in a Rocawear advertisement.
"We hope that all parties can find some measure of closure by this settlement," city attorney, Michael A. Cardozo, said in a written statement.
In 2008 the involved officers, Michael Oliver, Gescard Isnora and Marc Cooper, were acquitted of manslaughter and other charges. There were also no civil rights charged raised against the officers, and they currently remain on modified duty and face departmental charges.
While Dipset has experienced its share of issues and infighting among members of the group, they have still managed to patch things up. Members Jim Jones and Cam'ron put put aside their differences after a long period of not speaking and recently recorded a track, which will appear on Jim Jones' fifth album, Capo.
The song, titled "Salute ," also features Dipset member Juelz Santana. Although the three rappers will appear on the record together, it by no means signifies an abandonment of their solo careers. The album will be Jones' follow up to 2009's Pray IV Reign, which debuted on the Rap charts at No. 9 last year.
Capo will release on Sep. 28 on Jones' new label home E1.

Swizz Beak’s trail of bastardized babies is catching up to him. According to sources close to Jahna Sebastian, his 3rd baby mother that lives out in the UK, he hasn’t been supporting his seed and STILL hasn’t signed the birth certificate despite a paternity test that proves the baby is his. Pop it for the details.
Talk about on to the next one! Sources close to Jahna Sebastian, his London-based baby mama, say that Swizz is a total dirtbag. In an email sent to the I Am.. London Diva blog, back in August 2009, he showed up with Alicia Keys to take a paternity test for his baby girl. As if it wasn’t bad enough that a married man took his jump off to visit his baby mother, he has refused to acknowledge Sebastian’s child, paid a measly $1500 a month and skipped out on her birthday party after planning to throw it. Here are some excerpts of her letter:
Hey London Diva,
I am close friend of Jahna Sebastian, the mother of Swizz Beatz’s daughter. It’s ridiculous how celebrities turn out to be the opposite to what they portray to the public.
Swizz Beatz might be busy getting ready for marriage and new baby with Alicia Keys, but he stopped paying child support to his only daughter with producer/singer Jahna Sebastian who resides in London. Paternity has been established via DNA test taken in August 2009 and Alicia Keys was present.
Jahna has maintained independent parental responsibility for two years trying to reach Swizz Beatz personally but received no response. She then sought attorney’s help and filed petition in July 2009. Swizz first time paid child support in September 2009 starting with $1500. Many people in UK and Russia already know about their two-year old daughter and it seems strange that he still would not publicly acknowledge her. Alicia seems to go along with it too. In May Swizz did not attend his daughter’s birthday although he promised to through a Birthday Party.
Two days later he was in London visiting his fiancé (Alicia Keys) who announced her pregnancy on 27th May when the same day he visited his daughter for three hours.
During the past year Jahna Sebastian and Swizz Beatz have been in and out of court but Swizz did not provide required information. They are going back into the court again very soon as Swizz is not behaving himself as a responsible father.
The 24-year-old single mother graduated from the Russian Music Academy and has been making ends meet working as a music producer, actress and singer.
Alicia better take note. She has on her captain save a ho* cloak now, but when the newness wears off, it could be a wrap for her too. Follow the trail of baby mothers and it will lead you back to a no good ni**a with a bird beak. SMDH.
