Some of you Moguls may be new to the game, but back in the day (’bout 3 yrs. ago) when UML was brand new, and before we had a Million hits , I used to write a piece known in these parts as G.O.A.T.’s.

One of Harlem’s biggest stars of the last decade released his third album this week, Game Tested, Streets Approved, which in title alone, speaks volumes of what’s on B.R.’s mind.
Black Rob Reacts To Being Out Of Prison
HipHopDX: What do you feel was the biggest difficulty for you as far as readjusting to life on the outside once you got out of prison?
Rihanna has received a little flack for her latest video, Man Down, in which she is shown doing some domestic violence to a poor young man. And I guess it is safe to say, the red-head isn’t one to be picked one.
I’m a 23 year old rockstar with NO KIDS! What’s up with everybody wantin me to be a parent? I’m just a girl, I can only be your/our voice.
Cuz we all know how difficult/embarrassing it is to communicate touchy subject matters to anyone especially our parents! And this is why! Cuz we turn the other cheek! U can’t hide your kids from society,or they’ll never learn how to adapt! This is the REAL WORLD!
