Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson was arrested less then 30 minutes ago on September 8, 2006 for driving without having licenses plates on his silver Mercilago Lamborghini. The arrest happened in NYC (Midtown South Precint). 50 Cent’s arrest comes right on the heels of he and Puffy’s secret meeting yesterday about former Bad Boy artist Mase. Though specifics of the meeting weren’t readily available, its been reported that all beef has been squashed. FULL STORYRead More...Collapse...
Sorry for breaking away from my daily posting(s), but I am having internet issues. There seems to be an outage in my area and the lovely people at Comcast Cable are actively working on a solution. When I am back up I will have more "HOT AND BLACK" news for you
O1LT.COM "HOT AND BLACK" NEWS RECAP-WENDY WILLAIAMS/BEYONCE/SHUG KNIGHT/LL COOL J!!!
By LT Dinwiddie
Jawn Murray from AOL Black Voices caught up with one of my entertainment hero’s Wendy Williams recently and got her to talk about everything from Method Man, and Puffy, to Whitney and Bobby. It was a pretty interesting article, although I listen to her show frequently so she didn’t say anything she hasn’t already said beforeFULL STORY
As we embark on the new CD sales week I don’t think I am going to buy Beyoncé’s new album ‘B-Day’. After two OK singles, I don’t have that excitement that I had from her previous musical projects. Maybe this is the classic situation that always tends to happen with celebrities. We build them up just to tear them down. Maybe I am not pressed because I know in December its going to be ‘B-Day” all over again with the DreamGirls movie and soundtrack coming out. Am I the only one who isn’t at all impressed with Beyoncé these days?
Somebody call the law….
I knew there was something that I wanted to talk about on yesterday’s report but I couldn’t remember what it was, but thanks to MTV for reminding me. LL Cool J was talking to MTV news correspondent John Norris on the red carpet at the VMA’s last week and LL dissed the hell out of Def Jam. LL said he's siding with Fif because he's unhappy with the way Def Jam, the label he's been with for his entire career, is handling its projects.He said the company's music "gotta be a lot better." He also said that Def Jam has a fairly new staff that is running things differently from the old regime, and singled out the promotion department.
Is it just me or was that a slam on Jay-Z? Not for nothing LL, but even if they had promoted the hell out of your album, it still wouldn’t have sold anything. Your album was really whack.FULL STORY

O1LT.COM"HOT AND BLACK" NEWS RECAP-VMA/WHITNEY AND BOBBY/NE-YO/RONALD ISLEY!!!
I trust everyone have a good holiday. You just don’t know how bad I wanted to post my thoughts on the MTV VMA’s Thursday night. But I was forcing myself to take time off. Since so much time has passed since then, all I will say is that this year, in the battle of BET music awards vs. the lack luster and “corny” VMA’S, BET won! **But I will give Justin Timberlake his props. Though his perfromance was reminiscent of Micheal Jackson, his execution was unparallel.
Do we really care about Whitney and Bobby anymore? I mean at this point it is what it is, it’s sad and definitely an unfortunate situation, but how much longer are we to talk about them divorcing. It’s a wrap people, but do you know who I feel for the most? Bobby Kristina. I can’t wait to read her tell all book!FULL STORY
I like Mos Def, and I wasn’t happy when I heard about him getting arrested right before the VMA’s on last Thursday night for failing to shut down a performance after police told him to because of lack of a permit. “A permit??” Get the f*ck out of here with that NYPD. If you want to see how it all went down click here.FULL STORY
Ne-Yo finally spoke up about this current drama. From having his pictures plastered all over the internet (including this little area that I call o1lt.com), to the gay rumor that everyone latched on too. You want to hear this! I was surprised at how mature he is handling the whole situation(s)FULL STORY
I don’t care what anyone says, it is hard being a black man in this world. The San Diego Chargers' Steve Foley was shot Sunday by an off-duty policeman who had followed him to his home after noticing Foley's car driving erratically, a sheriff's investigator in San Diego, California, said. The 30-year-old, nine-year NFL veteran was shot twice; his wounds are not believed to be life-threatening, said San Diego Sheriff's Department Lt. Dennis Brugos. The shooting came less than a week after the 6-foot, 4-inch, 265-pound linebacker was cleared on charges stemming from a scuffle with police in April FULL STORY
You know I was really wondering why I hadn’t heard anything about Ronald Isley’s tax evasion conviction. I know he had an album released lately, but when interviewed here in Atlanta on V103, they didn’t ask him about it and he didn’t mention it. It looks like he is finally going to jail.FULL STORY
