Who would have know, Stacey Dash is a Republican and she supports Mitt Romney for President. I must admit besides a few movies and calendar layouts, I know very little about Stacey Dash. But, one thing I was not expecting was this. I guess everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

Houston, Texas - Baking the birthday boy a cake that he won't soon forget, veteran Houston rapper Wine-O holds no punches on his blistering new diss record "Happy Birthday T.I." With Clifford Harris, Jr. square in his crosshairs, Wine-O sets to dethrone the multi-platinum, self-proclaimed King of the South!
"This man calls me in the middle of the night, charges me for something I didn't even say and then threatens my family," Wine-O explains how the beef was initiated. "You think I'm gone be quiet? I thought he got all them guns he went to jail for to protect his family from somebody threatening them. And then he turns around and does the same thing to me. He picked the wrong fight this time and he said the wrong thing."
The story begins a few years ago when Wine-O met Australian-born aspiring rapper/model Iggy Azalea on her 18th birthday and the two started dating. Wine-O was already an established rapper with 17 albums under his belt and had enjoyed several major label deals on national distributor Diamante Music Group, EMI and Universal Records.more
Quickly noticing her natural beauty and musical talents, Wine-O signed Iggy to a record contract and began to guide her career. "I taught her how to rap, how to finish a 16-bar verse and got her exposure initially," Wine-O explains. "I took her to New York, L.A. and all these places and introduced her to people."
After two years, the relationship went sour and Wine-O sent her back home to Australia. But Iggy returned to the States on her own dime and eventually caught the attention of T.I., who began working with her.
"She's in a full contract with me. I wasn't trying to stop her record deal," Wine says. "I was encouraging it. But she is telling people that she is not in a deal and lying to people about her contractual obligations to me."
Wine-O was a mutual acquaintance of T.I.'s DJ MLK and told him how Iggy wasn't being fully honest. So to sort out the legalities, MLK got the two men on the phone to iron everything out. What Wine-O thought was to be a cordial conversation between two businessmen turned into a bunch of lip wrestling.
"I'm being respectful and thinking I'll get respect back. But he started talking to me like I'm a broke bum in the ditch," Wine-O says. "He asked 'what's the price' and I told him we can let our lawyers talk it out. But he's talking loud and wouldn't let me say anything. He gets off the phone, hits Twitter and calls me stupid. But I let it go."
The final straw, however, was when one of Iggy's fans started disrespecting Wine-O on Twitter. "She was saying I'm broke and 'Iggy never was with you,'" Wine-O reveals. "So I hit up Iggy myself and said 'look here, lil mama. You got one more time to disrespect me or I'll expose you.'"
The next thing Wine-O knows, his phone is ringing in the middle of the night. It's T.I. "He says 'Iggy says you're threatening to do something bad to her. Leave her alone and he'll leave you alone.'
Kanye West finally messed around leaked G.O.O.D Music's "Cruel Summer" just before it was set to release on September 18, 2012.
Prior to the leak, Kanye released the summer jam "Mercy" featuring 2 Chainz, Big Sean and Pusha T, along with "New God Flow" and "Cold". While "Mercy" is clearly the standout track on the album, fans will not be disappointed with "Cruel Summer", even if it is dropping as Fall approaches.
The album opens with "To the World" featuring R&B heavyweight, R. Kelly. You could not ask for a better start to an album than R. Kelly and Kanye throwing their middle fingers up to the whole world. Aside from the usual G.O.O.D. Music suspects, the album also features appearances from Ghostface Killah, Ma$e, and Marsha Ambrosious. Surprisingly, 'Ye was able to get Ambrosious to sing a hook without doing her trademark yodel and has Teyana Taylor sounding super sexy on "Bliss" with John Legend.
The album also features everybody's favorite hood joint, the remix of Chief Keef's "Don't Like" with Kanye West, Pusha T, Big Sean and Jadakiss. West and crew made us wait all summer, which was cruel considering some of the other stuff we've endured but it was definitely worth it. The production is dope and the overall flow of "Cruel Summer" is flawless.

Quincy Jones attends Spotify Stories Behind the Music event held at the Andaz Hotel in Hollywood, Calif., as a guest of honor and when it came time for Jones to say a few words, boy did he have something to say about Diddy.
According to Jones, "P. Diddy wouldn't know a B-flat, if it hit him," he states when he responded to an audience question with an admonition to "learn your craft." "P. Diddy has a doctorate in marketing, he's got clothes companies, and Ciroc vodka." he adds.
I don't expect Diddy to respond, after all what can he say about the legendary musician Quincy Jones.
